Lesson: Week 7

Lessons and Discussion Questions
Lesson 33: There is another way of looking at the world.
Whenever we feel distress we are looking at something in a way that promotes depression, anxiety, or worry. This is true of what we see within our minds or in the people or situations around us.
Lesson 34: I could see peace instead of this.
This applies to every situation. How we see will lead to knowing what we are.
Lesson 35: My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.
This is not how we see ourselves now. We want to protect the image of ourselves that we have made, both its positive and negative elements. Since our Source is holy we too are holy. This means an entirely new concept of ourselves.
Lesson 36: My holiness envelops everything I see.
"If your mind is part of God’s you must be sinless, or a part of His Mind would be sinful. Your sight is related to His Holiness, not to your ego, and therefore not to your body." When your holiness envelops everything you see then you live in a holy world.
Lesson 37: My holiness blesses the world.
Our purpose is to see the world through our own holiness. We do not lose our holiness by blessing the world through it. When you bless someone with your holiness you will begin to claim your own holiness. For the other, your vision of him or her restores to him or her, the awareness of his or her wholeness. The whole make no demands. Wholeness is the individual version of oneness.
Lesson 38: There is nothing my holiness cannot do.
The Gospels say that our faith can move mountains, that is our faith in the holiness of Jesus. Here it says that our faith in our own holiness can do anything. This is because the power of God lies in our own holiness.
Lesson 39: My holiness is my salvation.
We seek to be saved from our feelings and thoughts of guilt, fear, and shame. Guilt is hell and so our holiness is heaven.
