Today’s review includes the following:
“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.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.
“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.
“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 that I choose to see, in place of what I look on now.
“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 own best interests are, recognizing
that I cannot perceive them by myself.
“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 that purpose 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.
