Seek Not to Change the World
The world is a mirror of the thoughts you think you think and the identity you think you are, as long as perception lasts. The world will never change. The eyes and the ears of the body will still seem to offer separate images and sounds - they will continue to report differences. For this reason they were made, and until perception disappears entirely they will continue to do what they were made in hate to do. Yet the healed mind realizes none of them are true, and thus it IS possible to see the world from a Higher Perspective and experience the peace of the forgiven world.
This is the goal of A Course In Miracles. You still perceive the world, but from this right-minded Perspective there is no longer any attempt to "judge between" what is the same. Images are the same, they are not different. The Holy Spirit’s Perspective is indeed different from the ego’s personal slant, and this discernment or mind training is the goal of all effort to reach inner peace & tranquility.
The world is like a mask that was made to hide the truth. The mask seems to shift and change, but do not be fooled by appearances – the world will never change. Come within in peace and accept this simple statement. Lay aside all attempts to judge any person or aspect of the world you perceive. Lay aside the desire to fix or improve or change that which was made as a distractive device to keep you blind and preoccupied. Rest now, for you are entitled to happy dreams from a New Perspective that surely awaits your recognition in awareness.
Do not try to complicate a Course that is simple and obvious with attempts to intellectually "understand" the book as a collection of concepts. Forgiveness is not the study of the ego. The Course aims at an experience of the Present Moment, and all so-called knowings and understandings must be released to the Holy Spirit. Accept that you know nothing and thus open the mind to an experience of the New Perspective. Each miracle gives a glimpse of the New Perspective. Remember that not one thought the world believes is true, and relax in the awareness that the ego has no contribution to make to the truth. Not one opinion or specific judgment has any validity or value. From this clean and open-minded Perspective is the world shown to you Anew, and it is obvious that the world will never change. Change your mind about your mind by accepting the Mind´s Changeless State of Innocence & Perfection. Make way for the Vision of Christ, Which is the only sight there is to See. The Light of Understanding is Visible to the Spiritual Eye. Do not attempt to "see" with the body or to understand images. There will come a time when all images have gone by and the mind will rest in Eternity. There is no need to delay what is simple and natural.
The metaphysics of "Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exits" are clear and straightforward. Apply the Workbook lessons and refrain from making any exceptions. Many teachers focus on the principles and words and give little attention to practical application and transfer of training. If you would forgive you must experience that there is no such thing as partial forgiveness. Only complete forgiveness or Atonement brings lasting peace. "Judge not" is not an injunction to stop judging. Rather it is an invitation to the awareness that judgment is forever impossible. You need not make amends for past judgments, for by understanding that judgments are unknown to God, to Love, you realize that only Love is real and judgment is impossible. How Innocent is the Being God creates in Wholeness & Spirit. To know the Christ as Thy Self is inevitable.
The symbols and the gifts and the tools of Awakening are noticed everywhere
once you have opened your heart to them. They are free and Freely Given.
They come with blessings and with no cost or sacrifice. They come easily
to a willing heart and open mind. Be not afraid of Love. Love comes
I come in Peace.
I come in Joy.
I come in Love.
I come in Happiness.
The Light has come. Seek not to change the world. Change your mind about the world. The world will never change.
In God´s Love.
