A Course in Miracles – Workbook Lesson 54
These are the review ideas for today:
W-pI.54.1. (16) I have no neutral thoughts.
2 Neutral thoughts are impossible because all thoughts have power. 3 They will either make a false world or lead me to the real one. 4 But thoughts cannot be without effects. 5 As the world I see arises from my thinking errors, so will the real world rise before my eyes as I let my errors be corrected. 6 My thoughts cannot be neither true nor false. 7 They must be one or the other. 8 What I see shows me which they are.
W-pI.54.2. (17) I see no neutral things.
2 What I see witnesses to what I think. 3 If I did not think I would not exist, because life is thought. 4 Let me look on the world I see as the representation of my own state of mind. 5 I know that my state of mind can change. 6 And so I also know the world I see can change as well.
W-pI.54.3. (18) I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my seeing.
2 If I have no private thoughts, I cannot see a private world. 3 Even the mad idea of separation had to be shared before it could form the basis of the world I see. 4 Yet that sharing was a sharing of nothing. 5 I can also call upon my real thoughts, which share everything with everyone. 6 As my thoughts of separation call to the separation thoughts of others, so my real thoughts awaken the real thoughts in them. 7 And the world my real thoughts show me will dawn on their sight as well as mine.
W-pI.54.4. (19) I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my thoughts.
2 I am alone in nothing. 3 Everything I think or say or do teaches all the universe. 4 A Son of God cannot think or speak or act in vain. 5 He cannot be alone in anything. 6 It is therefore in my power to change every mind along with mine, for mine is the power of God.
W-pI.54.5. (20) I am determined to see.
2 Recognizing the shared nature of my thoughts, I am determined to see. 3 I would look upon the witnesses that show me the thinking of the world has been changed. 4 I would behold the proof that what has been done through me has enabled love to replace fear, laughter to replace tears, and abundance to replace loss. 5 I would look upon the real world, and let it teach me that my will and the Will of God are one.
