From True Vision by John Morgan

  • My eyes are really servants of the divine outlook, and they are obedient to the Mind that sees all.
  • The clear sight of Spirit does not blind me to faults and errors.
  • Because Spirit is forever unfolding reality, my vision is daily increasingly clearer.
  • My outlook is always positive, never negative.
  • My vision is never related to the self-centered “me,” but looks out selflessly.
  • Spiritual apprehension is my vision; its practice is my eyesight.
  • I see everyone impersonally as the perfect idea of the perfect Principle.
  • No blind human willfulness.
  • My sight is not falsified by self-advantage or rivalry.
  • My sight derives direct from the Father. It did not begin with birth, nor does it diminish with age.
  • My vision is generous and appreciative. My outlook is never mean or uninterested in others.
  • My vision never looks backward.
  • I recognize that one man’s good is all men’s good.
  • I judge or criticize no man.
  • Behold everyone in Love.
  • My vision is at peace and satisfied.
  • I look with the eye of gratitude.
  • Look out with Christ-colored glasses.
  • The Christ view is not only my eyes; it is also my physician and healer.
  • In my seeing, there is no strain, no intensity, no forcing to discern spiritual conclusion beyond where my being is.
