ACIM Workbook exercise 3

ACIM Workbook exercise 3

"I do not understand anything I see," is not to be understood, it is to be applied "in the same way as the previous one."

The previous lesson, number 2, states the "exercises with this idea are the same as those for the first one."

The first one states, "practice applying this idea very specifically to whatever you see." From the examples given in the exercises, one might think the practice consisted of:

  1. Looking at something,
  2. Identifying it by name, and
  3. Repeating the phrases,
    • "This table does not mean anything" (lesson 1),
    • "I have given this table all the meaning that it has for me" (lesson 2), and
    • "I do not understand this table" (lesson 3).
However, identifying an object within our field of vision and naming it is a big part of the process by which we give meaning to things in our respective worlds. A different language would mean different words, meanings and associations.
