The idea for today introduces the thought that you are not trapped in the world you
There is no point in trying to change the world.
The cause can be changed. That is the good news we need to hear today. The idea that we have attack thoughts seems heavy, burdensome, and uncomfortable, but with the empowerment that we are presented with today, we can escape this world as we see it by simply giving up the thoughts that make the world we experience.
Sounds easy, yet it is true. When I have practiced this over the years, my world has changed to one that is happier and more peaceful. My life prior to ACIM was in chaos. Even in the early days of my study, chaos was there. The drama was by my own choice. I had a life where I was abused and attacked but no one attacked me more than my very self. In giving up the attack thoughts more and more, I entered into a better place in my life. I could see how my thoughts were the cause of what surrounded me and brought forth the witnesses to concur.
Even more deeply is our thoughts that have made this world to hide from God. We’ll take the steps we can in these lessons and work where we are in the moment. All is good when we have faith and trust.
