I have invented this situation as I see it.

Indeed I have invented everything that seemingly disturbs my peace. It is my interpretation that gives rise to my uncomfortability. What is it that I see in the situation? I know my mind can take it beyond what it appears on the surface. A dramatic story is given life in my mind as I am certain of every detail.

And what happens? For one, I am usually wrong. However, before I realize how incorrect I am, I walk into the realm of self-judgment which then, of course, spews out as justified criticism to everyone, and surely anyone.

When I realize that I have invented the world, I see, AND as in the previous lesson that I am not the victim of the world I see, then I am empowered with this knowledge. I no longer feel that something has been “done to me” purposefully, but instead, I rise above the situation with the absolute choice in how to see it truly. Truly there is only the Love of God, and that is all I am to see behind everything. God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
