The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title.

I came across this while following up on news about the Cypriot government taking into consideration a bank account deposit tax in order to secure a bailout loan from the European Union on 24H Gold. Incredibly I was listening to an orchestral version of Clint Mansell’s Lux Aeterna. Many of you may instantly recognize it – audibly – from the movie ‘Requiem for a Dream’. Seemed very fitting while reading and then re-reading the above quote. Enjoy.

 

I’ve been continuing these on my own, see here for context: http://www.ryandmello.com/?p=395

Lesson 23: I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts.

  • True work is not to be done on the exterior. It is with thoughts that I must work if my perception of the world is to be changed.
  • The world I see is incapable of change because it is merely an effect. I must change my thoughts about the world in order to change the effect.
  • By doing this, I am affecting the cause & I will see the effects in the result which is the world.
  • Each of my perceptions of the “external reality” is a pictorial representation of my own attack thoughts.
  • This is a mass hallucination borne out of habits and ways of interpreting that I have picked up from the dream.
  • I am not trapped in this world I see; I am not a victim of it because it’s cause can be changed.
  • The cause is to be identified, and let go so it can be replaced.

Lesson 22: What I see is a form of vengeance.

  • By holding attack thoughts borne out of the ego, my perception of the world is one of difficulty, poverty, betrayal, doubt, etc.
  • Attack thoughts cannot exist within source because it is only of ego. And since I am from/of source, any attack thought that resides within my mind is not only an illusion, but also an attach thought held towards myself.
  • Fear does not exist in reality, it exists only in the illusion.
  • I see only the perishable.
    I see nothing that will last.
    What I see is not real.
    What is see is a form of vengeance.
  • Is this the world I really want to see?

Lesson 21: I am determined to see things differently.

  • The idea is to reframe people, events, thoughts in my mind so that what I may have previously expressed anger towards, I can now choose to see it differently.
  • This includes all sorts of anger, irritation, rage, etc.
  • I can choose to remove justification for attach thoughts & let them go, thus releasing myself from having to carry that burden.

Lesson 20: I am determined to see.

  • Currently my mind is undisciplined; it is almost in a victim state (for lack of a better word).
  • In this state, I am influenced by thoughts instead of the other way around.
  • All that is required for vision is the desire – the desire to see.

Lesson 19: I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my thoughts.

  • This idea teaches that minds are joined and that there are no private thoughts.
  • So that if someone has experienced the thought, then it is possible for others to experience the same thought. And the effects that thought brings along with it.

Lesson 18: I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my seeing.

  • It is not so much that I see, it is HOW I see it.
  • Thoughts are filters through which perception is deduced. And these thoughts are never neutral or unimportant to the universe.
  • This idea allows me to realize that I am not alone in this dream state.

Lesson 17: I see no neutral things.

  • I see no neutral things because I have no neutral thoughts. And thoughts come before things.
  • I do not yet see anything that is really alive or really joyous. Not yet.

Lesson 16: I have no neutral thoughts.

  • Everything I see is a result of my thoughts. Like thoughts attract like thoughts and resulting manifestations.
  • Each thought is never idle, and has the power to bring about either truth or false.
  • My thought about anything is not neutral as it immediately sets things in motion.

Lesson 15: My thoughts are images that I have made.

  • It seems that my thoughts are but mere images – put together from my perception of events, historical images, memories, and imagination.
  • This has become such a habit in my reality that I am not even aware of it.
  • The understanding of this idea will only truly sink in once I begin to see little edges of light around the same familiar objects I see now as I practice seeing things as they are.
