A Course in Miracles – Workbook Lesson 56
Our review for today covers the following:
W-pI.56.1. (26) My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.
2 How can I know who I am when I see myself as under constant attack? 3 Pain, illness, loss, age and death seem to threaten me. 4 All my hopes and wishes and plans appear to be at the mercy of a world I cannot control. 5 Yet perfect security and complete fulfillment are my inheritance. 6 I have tried to give my inheritance away in exchange for the world I see. 7 But God has kept my inheritance safe for me. 8 My own real thoughts will teach me what it is.
W-pI.56.2. (27) Above all else I want to see.
2 Recognizing that what I see reflects what I think I am, I realize that vision is my greatest need. 3 The world I see attests to the fearful nature of the self-image I have made. 4 If I would remember who I am, it is essential that I let this image of myself go. 5 As it is replaced by truth, vision will surely be given me. 6 And with this vision, I will look upon the world and on myself with charity and love.
W-pI.56.3. (28) Above all else I want to see differently.
2 The world I see holds my fearful self-image in place, and guarantees its continuance. 3 While I see the world as I see it now, truth cannot enter my awareness. 4 I would let the door behind this world be opened for me, that I may look past it to the world that reflects the Love of God.
W-pI.56.4. (29) God is in everything I see.
2 Behind every image I have made, the truth remains unchanged. 3 Behind every veil I have drawn across the face of love, its light remains undimmed. 4 Beyond all my insane wishes is my will, united with the Will of my Father. 5 God is still everywhere and in everything forever. 6 And we who are part of Him will yet look past all appearances, and recognize the truth beyond them all.
W-pI.56.5. (30) God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.
2 In my own mind, behind all my insane thoughts of separation and attack, is the knowledge that all is one forever. 3 I have not lost the knowledge of Who I am because I have forgotten it. 4 It has been kept for me in the Mind of God, Who has not left His Thoughts. 5 And I, who am among them, am one with them and one with Him.
