There fore today – I am not a victim of the world i see!

“Today we will review the following:”
We see here a direct connection pointed out to us between our thoughts and the world, even though Christ has made this connection before: Quark here is posting 3 lessons at once because it has taken me a week to absorb the thought processes involved in these 3 lessons;

Lessons 57-58 an 59

Lesson 57
***
Today let us review these ideas:
***
(31) I am not the victim of the world I see.
~~~
How can I be the victim of a world that 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 simply by walking out. Nothing holds me in this world. Only my wish to stay keeps me a prisoner. I would give up my insane wishes and walk into the sunlight at last.
~~~
(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.
~~~
(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 can be 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.
~~~
(34) I could see peace instead of this.
~~~
When I see the world as a place of freedom, I realize that it reflects the laws of God instead of the rules 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.
~~~
(35) 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 kept hidden. I begin to understand the holiness of all living things, including myself, and their oneness with me.
~~~
Lesson 58
~~~
These ideas are for review today:
~~~
(36) My holiness envelops everything I see.
~~~
From my holiness does the perception of the real world come. Having forgiven, I no longer see myself as guilty. I can accept the innocence that is the truth about me. Seen through understanding eyes, the holiness of the world is all I see, for I can picture only the thoughts I hold about myself.
~~~
(37) My holiness blesses the world.
~~~
The perception of my holiness does not bless me alone. Everyone and everything I see in its light shares in the joy it brings to me. There is nothing that is apart from this joy, because there is nothing that does not share my holiness. As I recognize my holiness, so does the holiness of the world shine forth for everyone to see.
~~~
(38) There is nothing my holiness cannot do.
~~~
My holiness is unlimited in its power to heal, because it is unlimited in its power to save. What is there to be saved from except illusions? And what are all illusions except false ideas about myself? My holiness undoes them all by asserting the truth about me. In the presence of my holiness, which I share with God Himself, all idols vanish.
~~~
(39) My holiness is my salvation.
~~~
Since my holiness saves me from all guilt, recognizing my holiness is recognizing my salvation. It is also recognizing the salvation of the world. Once I have accepted my holiness, nothing can make me afraid. And because I am unafraid, everyone must share in my understanding, which is the gift of God to me and to the world.
~~~
(40) I am blessed as a Son of God.
~~~
Herein lies my claim to all good and only good. I am blessed as a Son of God. All good things are mine, because God intended them for me. I cannot suffer any loss or deprivation or pain because of Who I am. My Father supports me, protects me, and directs me in all things. His care for me is infinite, and is with me forever. I am eternally blessed as His Son.
~~~
Lesson 59
~~~
The following ideas are for review today:
~~~
(41) God goes with me wherever I go.
~~~
How can I be alone when God always goes with me? How can I be doubtful and unsure of myself when perfect certainty abides in Him? How can I be disturbed by anything when He rests in me in absolute peace? How can I suffer when love and joy surround me through Him? Let me not cherish illusions about myself. I am perfect because God goes with me wherever I go.
~~~
(42) God is my strength. Vision is His gift.
~~~
Let me not look to my own eyes to see today. Let me be willing to exchange my pitiful illusion of seeing for the vision that is given by God. Christ’s vision is His gift, and He has given it to me. Let me call upon this gift today, so that this day may help me to understand eternity.
~~~
(43) God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him.
~~~
I can see what God wants me to see. I cannot see anything else. Beyond His Will lie only illusions. It is these I choose when I think I can see apart from Him. It is these I choose when I try to see through the body’s eyes. Yet the vision of Christ has been given me to replace them. It is through this vision that I choose to see.
~~~
(44) God is the light in which I see.
~~~
I cannot see in darkness. God is the only light. Therefore, if I am to see, it must be through Him. I have tried to define what seeing is, and I have been wrong. Now it is given me to understand that God is the light in which I see. Let me welcome vision and the happy world it will show me.
~~~
(45) God is the Mind with which I think.
~~~
I have no thoughts I do not share with God. I have no thoughts apart from Him, because I have no mind apart from His. As part of His Mind, my thoughts are His and His Thoughts are mine.

Chaos Has No Laws

Lesson 53.

Image

This post is not in support of any religion or Christian viewpoint or outlewk, it is to attempt to help clarify what they say they thought he said

“Today we will review the following:”
We see here a direct connection pointed out to us between our thoughts and the world, even though Christ has made this connection before:
(1:1) (11) “My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.”
~~~~~~~~~
(1:2-4) “Since the thoughts of which I am aware do not mean anything, the world that pictures them can have no meaning. What is producing this world is insane, and so is what it produces. Reality is not insane, and I have real thoughts as well as insane ones.”
~~~~~~~~~
Our thoughts of individuality, sinfulness, specialness, etc., have produced this world. Therefore, since the cause of the world is my insane thoughts, then the world, as the effect, must be equally insane. ‘Cause&# 39; and ‘effect&# 39; are never separated, for they are one. Reality, however, is not insane, despite the ego’s protestations to the contrary. It tells us God is insane, vengeful, and angry, yet “[He] thinks otherwise” (T-23.1.2:7) . As he did in the first fifty lessons, Jesus explains that we have a split mind, containing unreal thoughts of hate, and real thoughts of love. It remains for us to choose which ones we shall make real for ourselves. He tries to help us realize how miserable and unhappy we become when we choose the unreal thoughts of attack, judgment, and specialness. It is that misery that will ultimately impel us to choose again:
~~~~~~~~~~~
“Tolerance for pain may be high, but it is not without limit. Eventually everyone begins to recognize, however dimly, that there ‘must’ be a better way. As this recognition becomes more firmly established, it becomes a turning point” (T-2.III.3:5- 7).
~~~~~~~~~~~
(1:5) “I can therefore see a real world, if I look to my real thoughts as my guide for seeing.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is the world of vision, the ‘inner” world in which there are no thoughts of separation or judgment; the world of thought that is beyond the dream of hate, wherein we are able at last to see the dream for what it is. From there it is only an instant longer until God reaches down and lifts us to himself, the ‘last step’ in our journey, as we see depicted in this lovely statement:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“And then your Father will lean down to you and take the last step for you, by raising you unto Himself” (T-11.VIII.15: 5).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We shall return to a discussion of the real world later.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(2:1) (12) “I am upset because I see a meaningless world.”
(2:2-7) “Insane thoughts are upsetting. They produce a world in which there is no order anywhere. Only chaos rules a world that represents chaotic thinking, and chaos has no laws. I cannot live in peace in such a world. I am grateful that this world is not real, and that I need not see it at all unless I choose to value it. And I do not choose to value what is totally insane and has no meaning.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In “The Laws of Chaos” Jesus puts the word “laws” in quotation marks, signifying they are not really laws because they make no sense: the only ‘true’ laws are the laws of God. Jesus does not do so here, but the meaning is the same: “chaos has no laws.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before we can elect ‘not’ to value what is “totally insane,” we first have to accept that the world ‘is’ insane. What helps us realize this is that the world makes us totally unhappy. Our specialness desires — even when they are fulfilled and gratified — do not make us happy and do not bring us the peace of God. They bring us the peace of the ego, but not Heaven’s peace. The ultimate reason our insane thoughts are so upsetting is that they remind us of our original insane thought, which we believe will lead to punishment. In the ominous words of the ego, depicted in this powerful passage from the manual, we read (and tremble!) about the effect of our insane thought of separation, placed in the context of magic thoughts, recognized in another and/or in ourselves:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“They [ magic thoughts ] can but re-awaken sleeping guilt, which you have hidden but have not let go. Each one says clearly to your frightened mind, “You have usurped the place of God. Think not He has forgotten” . Here we have the fear of God most starkly represented. For in that thought has guilt already raised madness to the throne of God Himself. And now there is no hope. Except to kill. Here is salvation now. An angry father pursues his guilty son. Kill or be killed, for here alone is choice. Beyond this there is none, for what was done cannot be done without. The stain of blood can never be removed, and anyone who bears this stain on him must meet with death” (M-17.7:2-13) .
~~~~~~~~~
Forgiveness allows us to examine the destructive insanity of such a thought system, helping us accept it for what it is; a recognition for which we can only be deeply grateful, as its miracle leads beyond insane magic to the pure sanity of eternal life.
~~~~~~~~
(3:1) (13) “A meaningless world engenders fear.”
(3:2-5) “The totally insane engenders fear because it is completely undependable, and offers no grounds for trust. Nothing in madness is dependable. It holds out no safety and no hope. But such a world is not real.”
~~~~~~~
The only reality is Heaven, which is totally dependable because it is certain: There is only God. This world, as we have all experienced it, is not dependable. It was made to be so. That is what lets us know that the world and our experience of it are not real. Once again, it is our guilt, born of the belief in sin, that leads us to expect certain punishment and to trust no one. The best we can do is protect ourselves from certain attack by utilizing various defenses, which serve only to maintain the separation that established the need for defenses in the first place. Thus the vicious cycles of guilt and attack, and attack and defense, continue and continue and continue. They will always continue, until their fundamental premises are exposed to the truth.
~~~~~~
(3:6-8) “I have given it the illusion of reality, and have suffered from my belief in it. Now I choose to withdraw this belief, and place my trust in reality. In choosing this, I will escape all the effects of the world of fear, because I am acknowledging that it does not exist.”
~~~~
Again, it is essential that we make the connection between our suffering (the effect) and our thoughts of judgment, attack, and specialness (the cause). We do not escape the world of fear by use of our armaments — attempts to control, manipulate, and seduce. We control the world only by realizing there is no world to control. What does need to be controlled, however, are our thoughts, as Jesus gently admonished Helen, to repeat an earlier quote: “You are much too tolerant of mind wandering” (T-2.VI.4:6) . Most of the time there is nothing we can do about the certain world, but we certainly can do something about our uncertain thoughts. And we must, for they serve a vitally important purpose. They keep us here, holding intact our individuality, self-concepts, and very existence. Recognizing the purpose of our thoughts enables us to exert the power of decision to change the ego’s goal of separation to the Holy Spirit’s goal of Atonement. By changing the ego’s underlying purpose we are able to escape its effects of pain, anxiety, and fear.
~~~~
(4:1) (14) “God did not create a meaningless world.”
(4:2-6) “How can a meaningless world exist if God did not create it? He is the Source of all meaning, and everything that is real is in His Mind. It is in my mind too, because He created it with me. Why should I continue to suffer from the effects of my own insane thoughts, when the perfection of creation is my home? Let me remember the power of my decision, and recognize where I really abide.”
~~~~
You can see how Jesus returns over and over to the core symphonic themes of these lessons: reality, illusion, and the power of our minds to choose between them. The point here is extremely important, because the problem is that we have forgotten that we have such power to choose. The ego set up its series of defenses so we would never remember that we have a mind, let alone a mind that can choose. Thus were the body and brain made to keep our minds hidden from us, replaced by the mindless state of living in a body that is governed by a brain that thinks it thinks, but in reality only carries out the thoughts of the unconscious mind. These thoughts are but two: the ego belief that the meaningless has triumphed over the meaningful; and the Holy Spirit’s Atonement that the ego thought is unreal because it is outside the Mind of God. Thus it has no effects. Despite my feverish dreams to the contrary, I remain at home in God, held in memory in my right mind by the Holy Spirit. Now I can remember and choose again.
~~~~~
(5:1) (15) “My thoughts are images that I have made.”
(5:2-4) “Whatever I see reflects my thoughts. It is my thoughts that tell me where I am and what I am. The fact that I see a world in which there is suffering and loss and death shows me that I am seeing only the representation of my insane thoughts, and am not allowing my real thoughts to cast their beneficent light on what I see.”
~~~~~
This points out a crucial dimension of anyone’s work with ‘A Course in Miracles’ . Many of its students tend to deny they see a world of suffering, loss, and death. Instead they proclaim the world is really wonderful — part of God’s or Jesus’ plan: moreover, the new millennium will bring healing everywhere it is needed, bathing us all in light. The problem with looking through rose colored glasses is that if we do not recognize the insanity, pain, and suffering of the world, we will never recognize their source in our minds. The ‘The only way we can return to the insanity in our minds is by recognizing the insanity we perceive.’ If we stubbornly, arrogantly, and self-righteously insist that everything is wonderful — e.g., this is a wonderful world, replete with wonderful happenings; this is a wonderful course Jesus gave us — we will never realize that what we are seeing outside is a defense. Rather than see the hateful world we made, we cover it over and make it into something pretty. It is not a pretty world because it was made from ‘un’ pretty thought! Once more, the only way we can get to our thoughts and change our minds about them is to see their effects, which, again, is the cruel and vicious world in which we live.
~~~~~~~
(5:5-7) “Yet God’s way is sure. The images I have made cannot prevail against Him because it is not my will that they do so. My will is His, and I will place no other gods before Him.”
~~~~~~~
Jesus again appeals to the power of our minds to choose: between illusions and the truth. The final sentence is taken from the first commandment in the Book of Exodus (20:3), the basis for part of the discussion in Chapter 10 in the text (see especially T-10.III.-V) .The point there, as well as here, is that the ego’s gods of separation, sickness, suffering, and death have no power over the Son of God, who remains as God created him. God remains God, and no wild imaginings can erect another to take His place, except in dreams. Thus our will has never ceased to be one with His, and we remain at home, where God “would have us be” (T-31.VIII.12: 8)

Since nothing is accidental, it can never be said that change is real. You cannot say, “that wasn’t supposed to happen”, for instance. To say “the script is written”, means simply that all of perception is about the past. The future, too, is just a deceptive loop of ego thought. The future is not different from the past. All choices in this world are the same choice. Find out what is different, truly. In fact, Free Will does not involve choice. There is no choice in Oneness. Ask only—in every situation—”what is this for?” The purpose you give anything is your only choice.

Pining Reflection

Reflection

I Love U!

Image
I have come curiously close to the end, down
Beneath my self-indulgent pitiful hole,
Defeated, I concede and move closer
I may find comfort here.
I may find peace within the emptiness,
How pitiful.
It’s calling me…
And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping
The moon tells me a secret, my confidant
As full and bright as I am
This light is not my own and
A million light reflections pass over me
The source is bright and endless
She resusitates the hopeless
Without her, we are lifeless satellites drifting
And as I pull my head out I am without one doubt
Don’t wanna stay down here surving my narcissism
I must crucify the ego before it’s far too late
I pray the light lifts me out
Before I pine away.
So crucify the ego, before it’s far too late
And leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical
And you will come to find that we are all one mind
Capable of all that’s imagined and all conceivable
So let the light touch you and let the words spill through
Just let them pass right through bringing out our hope and reason
Before we pine away.
