ACIM Workbook lesson 57

Five ideas for review:

31) “I am not a victim of the world I see.

32) “I have invented the world I see.

33) “There is another way of looking at the world.”

34) “I could see peace instead of this.

35) “My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.”

The word “victim” indicates a misunderstanding. Just like the words “attack” and “blame” do. They all suppose that images you see in the world are outside of you and possess a power that you cannot control. Your focus on that assumption reflects in images that confirm it. The loop thus created can be tricky to step out of.

The way to step out of it is by refusing to be taken in by anything that strikes you as negative or less than desirable, and instead focus on the light that is always there. The light is in everything. It takes practice, for some more than for others, depending on their mental state. So be patient with yourself and keep on looking for the light in everything.

God’s mind is the mechanism of creation. It takes spiritual qualities, such as love and joy, and so forth, and translates them into vibrations that are discernible and experience-able by the human senses as form and relationship of all kinds. There is only one mind, and that mind is God’s mind. The part of you that you think of as “my mind” is that very same mind, the mechanism of creation. Spiritual qualities move through the mind and the mind translates them into vibrations that you can see and feel and touch.

You are part and parcel of that blessed and joyful process.
