‘I loose the world from all I thought I was.’
What keeps the world in chains but your beliefs? And what can save the world except yourself? Beliefs are powerful indeed. The thoughts you hold are mighty, and illusions are as strong in their effect as is the truth. A madman thinks the world he sees is real, and does not doubt it.
There is no world apart from what you wish, and herein lies your ultimate release. Change but your mind on what you want to see, and all the world must change accordingly.
Today our purpose is to free the world from all the idle thoughts we ever held about it, and about all living things we see upon it. Begin the fifteen minute period in which we practice twice today with this:
I who remain as God created me would loose the world from all I thought it was. For I am real because the world is not, and I would know my own reality.
Throughout the day, increase the freedom sent through your ideas to all the world, and say whenever you are tempted to deny the power of your simple change of mind:
I loose the world from all I thought it was, and choose my own reality instead.
Following a very fractious night I was pretty zombified today. It took me ages to just read through the lesson – another 1500 word one. I fell asleep in the first practice period and had weird dreams, ones I can’t remember now, but I woke up thinking how easy it would be to believe the dreams as reality.
All intentions to work went out of the window. I spent two hours catching up on my journaling (they are proving very effective as research material for the new book. Amazing how looking back shows me the patterns I’ve repeated – and am still repeating in my life). I finished reading and watching the opera I may be involved in and, having no energy or inclination to do anything else, watched The Commitment again.
If I’m honest there was very little thought given to the lesson as I repeated it today. But I figured it would be like an affirmation, it went in anyway on a subconscious level.
