Aligning your mind with truth. How does that work? How do you do that? Can you do that? Yes with the help given it can be done. I read it this morning, out loud, it is so comforting, a real gift.
The booklet being provided as your help in that is given directly by one Who knows. It starts like this:
Nothing I See Means Anything.
The reason this is so is that I see nothing, and nothing has no meaning. It is necessary that I
recognize this, that I may learn to see. What I think I see now is taking the place of vision. I must let it go by realizing it has no meaning, so that vision may take its place.
I Have Given What I See
All The Meaning It Has For Me.
I have judged everything I look upon, and it is this and only this I see. This is not vision. It is merely an illusion of reality, because my judgments have been made quite apart from reality. I am willing to recognize the lack of validity in my judgments, because I want to see. My judgments have hurt
me, and I do not want to see according to them.
I Do Not Understand Anything I See.
How could I understand what I see when I have judged it amiss? What I see is the projection of my own errors of thought. I do not understand what I see because it is not understandable. There is no sense in trying to understand it. But there is every reason to let it go, and make room for what can be seen and understood and loved. I can exchange what I see now for this merely by being willing to do so. Is not this a better choice than the one I made before?
These Thoughts Do Not Mean Anything.
The thoughts of which I am aware do not mean anything because I am trying to think without God. What I call “my” thoughts are not my real thoughts.My real thoughts are the thoughts I think with God. I am not aware of them because I have made "my" thoughts to take their place. I am willing to recognize that "my" thoughts do not mean anything, and to let them go. I choose to have them be replaced by what they were intended to replace. "My" thoughts are meaningless, but all creation lies in the thoughts I think with God.
I Am Never Upset For The Reason I Think.
I am never upset for the reason I think because I am constantly trying to justify "my" thoughts. I am constantly trying to make them true. I make all things my enemies, so that my anger is justified
and my attacks are warranted. I have not realized how much I have misused everything I see by
assigning this role to it. I have done this to defend a thought system which has hurt me, and which I no longer want. I am willing to let it go.
I Am Upset Because I See What Is Not There.
Reality is never frightening. It is impossible that it could upset me. Reality brings only perfect peace. When I am upset, it is always because I have replaced reality with illusions I made up. The illusions are upsetting because I have given them reality, and thus regard reality as an illusion.
Nothing in God’s creation is affected in any way by this confusion of mine. I am always upset by nothing.
I See Only The Past.
As I look about, I condemn the world I look upon. I call this seeing. I hold the past against everyone and everything, making them my "enemies". When I have forgiven myself and remembered Who I am, I will bless everyone and everything I see. There will be no past, and therefore no "enemies". And I will look with love on all that I failed to see before.
If you rather listen to it you are welcome to do that here:
