I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts

On day twenty three we move further away from illusions but as A Course in Miracles workbook says:

The idea for today introduces the thought that you are not trapped in the world you see, because its cause can be changed. This change requires, first, that the cause be identified and then let go, so that it can be replaced. The first two steps in this process require your cooperation. The final one does not.

As you look about you, repeat the idea slowly to yourself and then close your eyes and devote about a minute to searching your mind for as many attack thoughts as occur to you. As each one crosses your mind say:

“I can escape from the world by giving up attack thoughts about _____.”

Hold each attack thought in mind as you say this, and then dismiss that thought and go on to the next.

In the practice periods, be sure to include both your thoughts of attacking and of being attacked. Their effects are exactly the same because they are exactly the same. You do not yet recognize this and you are asked at this time only to treat them as the same in today’s practice periods. We are still at the stage of identifying the cause of the world you see. When you finally realize that thoughts of attack and of being attacked are not different, you will be ready to let the cause go.

Maybe it’s because I got up at three-thirty in the morning today, but I’m in a sate of funk. So that’s wonderful as I can practice deflecting the attack thoughts of doubt and fear…

So I’m sending love to a person I imagine has hurt me – I report on what happens after ward….

Many hours later and I feel much, much better.

I listened to my ultra forgiveness CD as well as doing the exercises of the day. That allowed me to do some forgiveness and so I felt much better.
