From the study of Chapter 31, Section V.
Course 901 sums it up by helping me to look at the false idea idea that we are innocent victims. It says, “Every time we see a brother as guilty or unworthy of our love, we are once again reinforcing the concept of the little self that is the innocent victim and keeping ourselves in hell. …Once we see how insane and painful it is, we eill give it up.
Another section that describes this wish to suffer pain at the hands of another in order to pofect guilt is in the Text under The Picture of Crucifixion. Paragraph 6 says in part, “Attest his innocence and not his guilt. Your healing is his comfort and his health because it proves illusions are not true. It is not will for life, but will for death that is the motivation for this world. Its only purpose is to prove guilt real. No worldly thought or act or feeling has a motivation other than this one.
Course 901 asked me to to write the key ideas from this section that are helpul in helping me wake up the truth. This is what I wrote and then shared with my mind healing partners who are doing the course with me.
The world has one purpose, to hide my sense of guilt from myself by placing it on my brother, to give me someone or something I can accuse of making me this thing I hate. I keep the world in place every time I look outside myself for someone or something to blam, every time I see my brother as guilty, and each time I see myself as victim. All of this is image making, and not real at all. I ask for the Atonement for the thoughts that the world is real with real effects that can hurt me.
