As long as you do not question (or investigate) into the cause of your sensations and where the awareness of all sense perceptions leads, the Reality in your consciousness, underlying all perceptions, remains veiled. The key to TRUE perception is simply Being the awareness of touching, seeing, hearing etc., knowing that YOU ARE THE CAUSE OF ALL THAT YOU PERCEIVE. Yes, this is the only “doing” a wise teacher teaches, and it comes only in your relaxation and effortlessness. In other words: "Do only this."






Where lies the secret to such true perception, in which the handling and undoing of sensations occur? The way you see now requires a complete REVERSAL. A new and true perception of everything and everyone in the world is what the MIND-TRAINING of the WORKBOOK of A COURSE IN MIRACLES offers you. It must be done on a daily basis. You will experience the certainty that there is only One Singular Reality and that there is no order of difficulties in your perception: SEEING with God’s Light while not seeing any ‘thing’; totally TOUCHING while not touching! You are touching one thing as everything while not touching ‘conceptual knowledge’ about it. You are touching and NOT-defining ‘what it means’, with no movement of hands and feet, no selfmade thoughts. Yet, for the moment of conversion you do relate with thoughts of “experiences” and stories from the past which come into your mind, and remember that such objects are not outside yourself, and that these illusionary projections are not real.
In a true sense, you are only able ‘to TOUCH’ your Divine Self, the Light in everything and everyone, by being the touch in its totality, recognizing that you cannot be ‘touched’ by a past thought. The recognition of the Self is one of being STILL now – as you truly always were. You are being touched in a true sense, and you are recognizing that your limited perception is perceiving NOTHING. You have learned that there is nothing and nobody here to be touched or to touch except yourself; BEING THAT Which can never be touched by a hand, or by any past thought, image or idea! (1./IV., p. 87-88)

The moment for the decision to be WILLING to be UNDONE can be – and will only, always be – NOW! No-one other than you, yourself, has to choose for God anew. So, what (can you imagine) are the needs and lacks you entertain and hold to prevent this final decision? You have given all the objects you perceive all the meaning that they have for you. You have judged everything and used them to make up and define obstacles which – over a long, long time – became acceptable. You then used these “realities” to justify your perception of being a body. (1/I., p.41)

God and the Souls He created remain in surety, and therefore KNOW that no miscreation exists. Truth cannot deal with unwilling error, because it does not will to be blocked out. But I (this is from Jesus!) was a man who remembered the Soul (Spirit) and its knowledge.... And as a man, I did not attempt to counteract error with knowledge, so much as to CORRECT error FROM THE BOTTOM UP. I demonstrated both the powerlessness of the body and the power of the mind, by uniting my will with that of My Creator, which naturally remembered the Soul and its own real purpose.
I cannot unite your will with God’s for you. But I CAN ERASE all misperceptions from your mind, if you will bring it under my guidance. Only your misperceptions stand in your own way. Without them, your own choice is certain. Sane perception induces sane choosing. The Atonement was an act based on true perception. I cannot choose for you, but I can help you make your own right choice.
“Many are called but few are chosen” should read, “All are called but few choose to listen. Therefore, they do not choose right.” The “chosen ones” are merely those who choose right sooner. This is the real meaning of the celestial speed-up. Strong wills can do this NOW. And you WILL find rest for your Souls. God knows you only in peace, and this IS your reality.

Where does the mind-training start? It starts exactly where you think you are right now in correspondence with the world and with HOW YOU SEE things around you. As an untrained mind you will reply as you have been conceptually conditioned: “I see a world that I believe is real, and myself as a body – as part of this world, constantly interacting with all other parts I see out there, getting sick, growing old and finally trying to escape by dying.” All these concepts seem to happen to you, and are the thoughts in your mind that give you nothing but suffering. The moment you do not want them anymore, you are ready to receive the correction which the Holy Spirit made simultaneously with the occurrence of your belief in their reality and your separation from the Creative Reality you are.
When you say ‘I see’ a world, etc. you use it as another way of referring to all of your perceptions and thoughts of separation. It is the same as saying ‘I hear’ or ‘I touch’ or ‘I think’ it a certain way. And what you ‘see’ you believe to be real because you have given all objects meaning and think thus to understand and know them and yourself in relationship with them.
The moment you question the reality of your “seeing,” your personal transformation will speed up. At a certain point, as mentioned before, within the “process” of inevitably including all your phantom-figures in your conversion of your mind, JESUS’ teachings of A COURSE IN MIRACLES will show up and offer you every needed guidance on the “way” back to your real Home. This Gift came to me as an updated form of an out-of-time guide-line to my recognition of my own Resurrection. “This is a course in miracles. It is a required course,” Jesus says, “Since an untrained mind can accomplish nothing, it is the purpose of the Workbook (which is the second part and is the experiential core of the Course) to train your mind in a systematic way to a different perception of everyone and everything in the world.” (1/VI., p. 111)

These lessons (of the Workbook of A Course in Miracles) will facilitate you in remembering your complete process of transformation, a single moment of experience with God.
Undergoing a complete mind training will bring about this inevitable, personal Experience of your Awakening, including the recognition that There is no world; I am not a body, I am free, I am still as God created me; there is no death.
As it is stated in the Introduction of the Workbook, these ideas are here to be used and will automatically change your mind to a different perception of everyone and everything you see:
Some of the ideas the workbook presents you will find hard to believe, and others may seem to be quite startling. This does not matter.
You are not asked to judge them at all. You are asked only to use them. It is their use that will give them meaning to you, and will show you that they are true.
