People living in the ego-centric definition of life are often afraid to reveal what they are thinking, unless it’s another opportunity to talk smack or gossip about others. Such unfortunate egos don’t realize how their negative impressions are creating turmoil within themselves.
A person suffering from chronic, negative awareness needs more than the anxiety within to cause a change of mind. Usually, the person needs a spiritual wake up call, or personal counseling. The object of the counselor is to help the negative person recognize the error thinking in his/her own mind.
We will explore a mind-purifying technique which opens the mind to accept the essential Truth of A Course In Miracles.
Projection makes perception. The world you see is what you gave it, nothing more than that. But though it is no more than that, it is not less. Therefore, to you it is important. It is the witness to your state of mind, the outside picture of an inward condition. As a man thinks, so does he perceive. Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. Perception is a result and not a cause.ACIM Text 114 – NE 478
