Subject: We talked about victimization, I’ve been reading here


The following excerpts have spoken to me clearly about victimhood, a subject we talked about during our last meeting.

On page 637 under,  “The illusion of suffering”, it says:

“Suffering is an emphasis upon all the world has done to injure you. Here is the world’s demented version of salvation clearly shown. Like to a dream of punishment, in which the dreamer is unconscious of what brought on the attack against himself, he sees himself attacked unjustly, and by something not himself. He is a victim of this “something else”, a something outside himself for which he has no reason to be held responsible. He must be innocent because he knows not what he does, but what is done to him. Yet is his own attack upon himself apparent still, for it is he who bears the suffering. And he cannot escape because its source is seen outside himself.”

A little further above it says:

“The resurrection of the world awaits your healing and your happiness, that you may demonstrate the healing of the world. The Holy Instant will replace all sin, if you but carry its affects with you and no one will elect to suffer more. What better function could you serve than this? Be healed that you may heal, and suffer not the laws of sin to be applied to you. And truth will be revealed to you who chose to let love’s symbols take the place of sin.”

On page 497 it says:

“Judgment is but a toy, a whim, a senseless means to play the idle game of death in your imagination. But vision sets all things right, bringing them gently within the kindly sway of Heaven’s laws. What if you recognized this world is an hallucination?  What if you really understood you made it up? (what I get from this is that the way we SEE it, NOT its real existence, but THE WAY WE SEE it is our hallucination). What if you realize that those who seem to walk about in it, to sin and die, attack and murder and destroy themselves, are wholly unreal? Could you have faith in what you see if you ACCEPTED this? And would you SEE it?

Hallucinations disappear when they are recognized for what they are. This is the healing and the remedy. Believe them not and they are gone. And all you need to do is recognize you did this. Once you accept the simple fact, and take onto yourself the power you gave them, you are released from them. One thing is sure; hallucinations serve a purpose, and when that purpose is no longer held, they disappear.”
