Part 1 Undoing the Way We See Things Now

Lesson 22

What I see is a form of vengeance

Today’s idea accurately describe the way anyone who holds attack thoughts in his mind must see the world. Having projected his anger onto the world, he sees vengeance about to strike at him. His own attack is thus perceived as self-defense. This becomes an increasingly vicious circle until he is willing to change how he sees. Otherwise, thoughts of attack and counterattack will preoccupy him and people his entire world. What peace of mind is possible to him then?

2 It is from this savage fantasy that you want to escape. Is it not joyous news to hear that it is not real? Is it not a happy discovery to find that you can escape? You made what you would destroy; everything that you hate and would attack and kill. All that you fear does not exist.

3 Look at the world about you at least five times today for at least a minute each time, and as your eyes move slowly from one object to another, from one body to another, say to yourself:

I see only the perishable.

I see nothing that will last.

What I see is not real.

What I see is a form of vengeance.

At the end of each practice period, ask yourself:

Is this the world I really want to see?

The answer is surely obvious.

Personal Notes: As I practiced the exercise for today, my eyes slowly moving from one object to another, from one body to another, from one thought to another, I see only the temporal, the perishable. I see nothing that will last. What I see is not real. So I ask myself is this the world I really want to see? What I see is a form of vengeance against God, man, and creation. No! I do not want to see miscreation, unreality. I want to see the real world, God’s world, God’s vision. Replacing fear for Love, replacing self defense thoughts with Love, replacing, attack and counterattack thoughts with Love. Choosing to put faith and trust in God’s Love for me and His Creation. Wanted to mention if anyone is interested in additional studies on A Course in Miracles, a brother of my weekly ACIM study group is going through the text chapters 1-31 in a year, having started January 1st., in this blog we are going through the Lessons 1-365 in a year, so if you find yourself wanting for additional information and encouragement you might like to check out the ACIM blog at eckiefriar.com which is reviewing the ACIM Chapters 1-31. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in love my friend!

God is Love

Love is God
