A Course In Miracles, Lesson 33 plus Commentary by Allen Watson


There is another way of looking at the world.
Today's idea is an attempt to recognize that you can shift your perception of the world in both its outer and inner aspects. A full five minutes should be devoted to the morning and evening applications. In these practice periods, the idea should be repeated as often as you find comfortable, though unhurried applications are essential. Alternate between surveying your outer and inner perceptions, but without an abrupt sense of shifting.

Merely glance casually around the world you perceive as outside yourself, then close your eyes and survey your inner thoughts with equal casualness. Try to remain equally uninvolved in both, and to maintain this detachment as you repeat the idea throughout the day.

The shorter exercise periods should be as frequent as possible. Specific applications of today's idea should also be made immediately, when any situation arises which tempts you to become disturbed. For these applications, say:.

There is another way of looking at this.

Remember to apply today's idea the instant you are aware of distress. It may be necessary to take a minute or so to sit quietly and repeat the idea to yourself several times. Closing your eyes will probably help in this form of application.



Commentary by Allen Watson

This lesson asserts the power of our minds to choose how we see the world. We can shift our perception of the world! That is not only a personally empowering concept, it is, quite literally, a world-changing realization.

As we begin to examine our thoughts, we will be amazed at the number of situations in which the idea of "another way" of looking at it has simply never occurred to us. With some things, the idea that we could see them differently may actually be offensive. Without realizing it we may be saying, "My mind is already made up; don't confuse me with facts."

That is why following the practice instructions with these lessons is so important. It isn't just the longer five-minute times in the morning and evening: "The shorter exercise periods should be as frequent as possible" (3:1). The more often we bring this idea into our awareness during the day, the more we will become aware of areas of thought that we are protecting from change.
