Lesson 52 REVIEW 6-10


Today’s review covers these ideas:
[6]
“I am upset because I see what is not there.”
Reality is never frightening. It is impossible that it could upset me.
Reality brings only perfect peace. When I am upset, it is always
because I have replaced reality with illusions which I made up. The
illusions are upsetting because I have given them reality, and thus
regard reality as an illusion. Nothing in God’s creation is affected in
any way by this confusion of mine. I am always upset by nothing.
[7]
“I see only the past.”
As I look about, I condemn the world I look upon. I call this seeing.
I hold the past against everyone and everything, making them my
“enemies.”When I have forgiven myself and remembered who I am,
I will bless everyone and everything I see.There will be no past, and
therefore no “enemies.”And I will look with God on all that I failed
to see before.
[8]
“My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.”
I see only my own thoughts, and my mind is preoccupied with the
past. What, then, can I see as it is? Let me remember that I look on
the past to prevent the present from dawning on my mind. Let me
understand that I am trying to use time against God. Let me learn to
give the past away, realizing that in so doing I am giving up nothing.
[9]
“I see nothing as it is now.”
If I see nothing as it is now, it can truly be said that I see nothing. I
can see only what is now.The choice is not whether to see the past
or the present: it is merely whether to see or not.What I have chosen
to see has cost me vision. Now I would choose again, that I may see.
[10]
“My thoughts do not mean anything.”
I have no private thoughts.Yet it is only private thoughts of which I
am aware.What can these thoughts mean? They do not exist, and so
they mean nothing.Yet my mind is part of creation and part of its
Creator.Would I not rather join the thinking of the universe than to
obscure all that is really mine with my pitiful and meaningless
“private” thoughts?
