Undoing the Way We See Things Now
Review of Lesson 21-25
1. (21) I am determined to see things differently.
What I see now are but signs of disease, disaster and death. This cannot be what God created for His beloved Son.70 The very fact that I see such things is proof that I do not understand God. Therefore, I also do not understand His Son. What I see tells me that I do not know who I am. I am determined to see the witnesses to the truth in me, rather than those which show me an illusion of myself.
2. (22) What I see is a form of vengeance.
The world I see is hardly the representation of loving thoughts. It is a picture of attack on everything and by everything. It is anything but a reflection of the love of God and the love of His Son. It is my own attack thoughts which give rise to this picture. My loving thoughts will save me from this perception of the world, and give me the peace God intended me to have.
3. (23) I can escape from the world by giving up attack thoughts.
Herein lies my salvation and nowhere else. Without attack thoughts I could not see a world of attack. As forgiveness allows love to return to my awareness, I will see a world of peace and safety and joy. And it is this I choose to see in place of what I look on now.
4. (24) I do not perceive my own best interests.
How could I recognize my own best interests when I do not know who I am? What I think are my best interests would merely bind me closer to the world of illusions. I am willing to follow the Guide God has given me to find out what my real best interests are, recognizing that I cannot perceive them by myself.
5. (25) I do not know what anything is for.
To me, the purpose of everything is to prove that my illusions about myself are real. It is for this that I attempt to use everyone and everything. It is this that I believe the world is for. Therefore I do not recognize its real purpose. The purpose I have given the world has led to a frightening picture of it. Let me open my mind to its real purpose by withdrawing the one I have given it and learning the truth about it.
I am determined to see things differently! Signs of disease, disaster, death, hatred, vengeance, cannot be what God created for His beloved Son. I am determined to let go of all attack thoughts, all forms of vengeance. I am determined to have my thoughts be of one mind with my Creator and part of Creation. To see, walk, live, breathe, in Gods Love. To think with Holy Spirit, to be part of the healing and solution to the problem, to expand the Kingdom of God, Not add to the illusions of separation, death and destruction. Forgiveness allows love to flow in, to, and through us, giving us true vision of a world of peace, safety, joy and it is this I choose to see in place of illusion and lies of our enemy. I refuse to engage in the act of, or even the thought of vengeance or attack thoughts by the help of Holy Spirit, that I may walk in loving thoughts with the heart and mind of Jesus to see through His eyes, with His perception of the Great Love our Heavenly Father has bestowed on all His Beloved children and all of Creation. I pray for all my brothers, sisters and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination of purpose in The Way, The Truth, The Life in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!
