Ch. 1. VII. 1 – 3. Jesus: “Your distorted perceptions produce a dense cover of form over miracle impulses, making it hard for them to reach your awareness. And the confusion of miracle impulses with physical impulses is a major perceptual distortion. Yet all physical impulses are just misdirected miracle impulses!
All real pleasure comes from doing God’s Will. This is because not doing it is a denial of your Self! Denial of Self inevitably results in illusions, while correction of the error brings release from it. Do not deceive yourself into believing that you can relate in peace to God or to your brothers with anything external.
