” I am not the victim of the world I see. I have invented the world I see. There is another way of looking at the world. I could see peace instead of this. My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.”
Earlier, Jesus tells us that the Workbook is not a set of intellectual exercises; however, the progression of the ideas here are very logical. I’m not a victim, because I made up the story of the world. There is another way of looking at it, and in doing so, I can experience peace. All this is possible because my mind is part of God’s mind, and I am sinless. I’m not to abandon reason, but to use it in the service of God. I’m not trapped, and in practicing the lessons, I can walk out of the illusory prison I have made for myself.

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.
