I can give up my attack thoughts and see anew

Christmas day – day fifty five and another review day –  from seeing thing anew to giving up attack thoughts from ACIM worknook for today’s review (my comments in Italics):

(21) I am determined to see things differently.

[] I am determined to see the witnesses to the truth in me, rather than those which show me an illusion of myself.
Seeing differently means changing my attitudes.

(22) What I see is a form of vengeance.

The world I see is hardly the representation of loving thoughts… My loving thoughts will save me from this perception of the world, and give me the peace God intended me to have.
When I meditate or think of God, I see peace.

(23) I can escape from this world by giving up attack thoughts.

Herein lies salvation, and nowhere else. Without attack thoughts I could not see a world of attack. As forgiveness allows love to return to my awareness, I will see a world of peace and safety and joy. And it is this I choose to see, in place of what I look on now.
Forgiveness, compassion and unconditional love all me to be in peace.

(24) I do not perceive my own best interests.

So true – that’s one problem with the golden rule. Loving others as yourself is no good when we do not in truth unconditionally love ourselves or forgive ourselves.
Also, note that loving others as yourself implies that we need love ourselves.

(25) I do not know what anything is for.

[] Let me open my mind to the world’s real purpose by withdrawing the one I have given it, and learning the truth about it.
I don’t know – I don’t know.
Perhaps I know that I don’t know and at times I don’t even know that.
