Transforming Our Perception of the World

⁴Every thought you have makes up some segment of the world you see. ⁵It is with your thoughts, then, that we must work, if your perception of the world is to be changed.

If the cause of the world you see is attack thoughts, you must learn that it is these thoughts which you do not want. ²There is no point in lamenting the world. ³There is no point in trying to change the world. ⁴It is incapable of change because it is merely an effect. ⁵But there is indeed a point in changing your thoughts about the world. ⁶Here you are changing the cause. ⁷The effect will change automatically.

The world you see is a vengeful world, and everything in it is a symbol of vengeance. ²Each of your perceptions of “external reality” is a pictorial representation of your own attack thoughts.

…you are not trapped in the world you see, because its cause can be changed. ²This change requires, first, that the cause be identified and then let go, so that it can be replaced. (A Course in Miracles, W-23.1:4–3:2;5:1-2. See also ACIM Lesson 23 Insights.)

Every perception of separation or differences is an attack on the oneness of Love. This is why the ego’s wish for specialness is an attack on Love. To be special means to be different.

We always have the option of letting go of our wish for specialness and accepting Love’s oneness as our Identity. We have mistakenly identified with the ego, but we can change our identification. To make that change we must learn to recognize our judgments. They separate us from the Love that is the identity we share with every brother and our Creator. As we are willing to let go of these thoughts, we make way for Love to rush in and transform our perception of the world.
