These review lessons are amazing. Their compactness makes them even more expansive. Read these lessons by themselves and they offer you an experience that is not of this world. Read them all together and you find yourself transported to something words can’t describe. You are going so high, there is no limit. And everything that you have read, heard and seen, comes together in one holy instant. You recognize the thoughts you used to value are simply clouds that have prevented you from experiencing the light that you are. You are going beyond these clouds now, and your purpose is holier than you realize. Jesus is standing with you, cheering you on, saying, “Go on, clouds can’t stop you!” And you happily oblige.
The lessons are showing you that you are free. You are no longer bound by your own thoughts. You experience the power of your mind, you are remembering an ancient melody that is calling you Home. What a great opportunity, what a wonderful gift. A Course In Miracles has been given you and you have a purpose that is not of this world. All are called, but few choose to listen. You have listened, and you are home in Heaven with your Father now.
(16) I have no neutral thoughts.
Neutral thoughts are impossible because all thoughts have power. They will either make a false world or lead me to the real one. But thoughts cannot be without effects. As the world I see arises from my thinking errors, so will the real world rise before my eyes as I let my errors be corrected. My thoughts cannot be neither true nor false. They must be one or the other. What I see shows me which they are.
(17) I see no neutral things.
What I see witnesses to what I think. If I did not think I would not exist, because life is thought. Let me look on the world I see as the representation of my own state of mind. I know that my state of mind can change. And so I also know the world I see can change as well.
(18) I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my seeing.
If I have no private thoughts, I cannot see a private world. Even the mad idea of separation had to be shared before it could form the basis of the world I see. Yet that sharing was a sharing of nothing. I can also call upon my real thoughts, which share everything with everyone. As my thoughts of separation call to the separation thoughts of others, so my real thoughts awaken the real thoughts in them. And the world my real thoughts show me will dawn on their sight as well as mine.
(19) I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my thoughts.
I am alone in nothing. Everything I think or say or do teaches all the universe. A Son of God cannot think or speak or act in vain. He cannot be alone in anything. It is therefore in my power to change every mind along with mine, for mine is the power of God.
(20) I am determined to see.
Recognizing the shared nature of my thoughts, I am determined to see. I would look upon the witnesses that show me the thinking of the world has been changed. I would behold the proof that what has been done through me has enabled love to replace fear, laughter to replace tears, and abundance to replace loss. I would look upon the real world, and let it teach me that my will and the Will of God are one.
