Today’s review includes the following:
1. (21) I am determined to see things differently.
2What I see now are but signs of disease, disaster and death. 3This cannot be what God created for His beloved Son. 4The very fact that I see such things is proof that I do not understand God. 5Therefore I also do not understand His Son. 6What I see tells me that I do not know who I am. 7I am determined to see the witnesses to the truth in me, rather than those which show me an illusion of myself.
2. (22) What I see is a form of vengeance.
2The world I see is hardly the representation of loving thoughts. 3It is a picture of attack on everything by everything. 4It is anything but a reflection of the Love of God and the Love of His Son. 5It is my own attack thoughts that give rise to this picture. 6My loving thoughts will save me from this perception of the world, and give me the peace God intended me to have.
3. (23) I can escape from this world by giving up attack thoughts.
2Herein lies salvation, and nowhere else. 3Without attack thoughts I could not see a world of attack. 4As forgiveness allows love to return to my awareness, I will see a world of peace and safety and joy. 5And it is this I choose to see, in place of what I look on now.
4. (24) I do not perceive my own best interests.
2How could I recognize my own best interests when I do not know who I am? 3What I think are my best interests would merely bind me closer to the world of illusions. 4I am willing to follow the Guide God has given me to find out what my own best interests are, recognizing that I cannot perceive them by myself.
5. (25) I do not know what anything is for.
2To me, the purpose of everything is to prove that my illusions about myself are real. 3It is for this purpose that I attempt to use everyone and everything. 4It is for this that I believe the world is for. 5Therefore I do not recognize its real purpose. 6The purpose I have given the world has led to a frightening picture of it. 7Let me open my mind to the world’s real purpose by withdrawing the one I have given it, and learning the truth about it.
