My holiness envelops everything I see.

1. 1Today’s idea extends the idea for yesterday from the perceiver to the perceived. 2You are holy because your mind is part of God’s. 3And because you are holy, your sight must be holy as well. 4“Sinless” means without sin. 5You cannot be without sin a little. 6You are sinless or not. 7If your mind is part of God’s you must be sinless, or a part of His Mind would be sinful. 8Your sight is related to His Holiness, not to your ego, and therefore not to your body.

2. 1Four three-to-five-minute practice periods are required for today. 2Try to distribute them fairly evenly, and make the shorter applications frequently, to protect your protection throughout the day. 3The longer practice periods should take this form:

3. 1First, close your eyes and repeat the idea for today several times, slowly. 2Then open your eyes and look quite slowly about you, applying the idea specifically to whatever you note in your casual survey. 3Say, for example:

4My holiness envelops that rug.
5My holiness envelops that wall.
6My holiness envelops these fingers.
7My holiness envelops that chair.
8My holiness envelops that body.
9My holiness envelops this pen.

10Several times during these practice periods, close your eyes and repeat the idea to yourself. 11Then open your eyes, and continue as before.

4. 1For the shorter exercise periods, close your eyes and repeat the idea; look about you as you repeat it again; and conclude with one more repetition with your eyes closed. 2All applications should, of course, be made quite slowly, as effortlessly and unhurriedly as possible.
