How I Perceive the World

As I learn to apply the principles of A Course in Miracles to my daily life, and moment to moment, I start to understand many small details of my life today.
I see how much I played the victim.  How much I've complained about past jobs, relationships, situations.
As I walk on my own personal path and am willing to see within, to work with who I've been, where I come from, I understand I am where I am as a result of how I thought in the past.  And even so, God is benevolent with me.  It's not all bad, I have not been all complaining either.
It's important for me to take this time today to apply new thought patterns, to work at seeing myself as I truly am, a son of God.  It's been a mind blower to read and read and read over and over that the world I see has been created by my thoughts and perceptions.  This is a totally opposite concept from anything I have ever learned before.  My parents didn't know that, my teachers never taught me this.  I never heard this in church.  Maybe the bible teaches it, but I was not taught to see myself or the world this way.
I also realize I have a blessed and huge responsibility.  As I shift my thoughts and so my perception of the world, it is only natural that I interact with my world and the people in it from a new place.  A place of Love, of Light, of forgiveness.  This might just be how we go about changing the world.

  2. Very insightful, Savina. It is true that we are brought into this world and only taught Math, Science, Social Studies, and English at school. However, nobody teaches us how to cope with the different situations, good or bad, we face everyday, and how achieving greatness as a human being starts from within, and works its way out. It is our responsibility to take action and make a change for the better.
    Thank you for sharing this with us!

  3. I believe that our very own thought pattern is very important on how we create our world. Thanks Savina for this wonderful post.
