Part 1

Undoing the Way We See Things Now

Lesson 57

Review of Lessons 31-35

1. (31) I am not the victim of the world I see.

     How can I be the victim of a world which can be completely undone if I so choose? My chains are loosened. I can drop them off merely by desiring to do so. The prison door is open. I can leave it simply  by walking out. Nothing holds me in this world. Only my wish to stay keeps me a prisoner. I would give up insane wishes and walk into the sunlight at last.

2. (32) I have invented the world I see.

     I made up the prison in which I see myself. All I need do is recognize this and I am free. I have deluded myself into believing it is possible to imprison the Son of God. I was bitterly mistaken in this belief, which I no longer want. The Son of God must be forever free. He is as God created him, and not what I would make of him. He is where God would have him be, and not where I thought to hold him prisoner.

3. (33) There is another way of looking at the world.

     Since the purpose of the world is not the one I ascribed to it, there must be another way of looking at it. I see everything upside down, and my thoughts are the opposite of truth. I see the world as a prison for God’s Son. It must be, then, that the world is really a place where he is set free. I would look upon the world as it is, and see it as a place where the Son of God finds his freedom.

4. (34) I could see peace instead of this.

     When I see the world as a place of freedom, I will realize that it reflects the laws of God instead of the rules which I made up for it to obey. I will understand that peace, not war, abides in it. And I will perceive that peace also abides in the hearts of all who share this place with me.

5. (45) My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.

     As I share the peace of the world with my brothers, I begin to understand that this peace comes from deep within myself. The world I look upon has taken on the light of my forgiveness and shines forgiveness back at me. In this light, I begin to see what my illusions about myself had kept hidden. I begin to understand the holiness of all living things, and their oneness with me.[1]

Personal Notes:

Lesson 57, “Review of Lessons 31-35” Loving and applying these review Lessons to life today. Thanking and praising my Heavenly Father, my Sweet Jesus and Holy Spirit for these gems of wisdom in this Course, for quick go to’s, to use in day to day living that actually produce quick results of Peace, Joy, Truth, while resetting my mind to True self as God Created me. When it “feels” like the walls are closing in on me, I can now know with certainty (from study, practice periods and Holy Spirit) I am not the victim of the world I see! My chains are loosed! I give up insane beliefs and walk into the Sunlight of Peace, Joy and Love! I had invented the world I saw myself as being, less than, never good enough, untalented, unlovable, worthless,,, imprisoned in my mind of hopelessness and despair. Believing a lie. I no longer will listen to the lies, I choose to only listen to the voice of God, The Voice of Truth. I can only be Free as the son of God! My mind is part of God’s, I am very holy, I know this is true! So its about time I start awakening from this sleepy dream of illusions to The Truth of who I am, who my brothers are, what the world before me is, to The Light of my Salvation, which shines into my brothers, the world and back to me! Oh what a Glorious Sight! Thank You Jesus! I pray for all my brothers, sisters, and myself for continues 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!
