The review for today covers the following ideas:

1. 1(1) Nothing I see means anything.

2The reason this is so is that I see nothing, and nothing has no meaning. 3It is necessary that I recognize this, that I may learn to see. 4What I think I see now is taking the place of vision. 5I must let it go by realizing it has no meaning, so that vision may take its place.

2. 1(2) I have given what I see all the meaning it has for me.

2I have judged everything I look upon, and it is this and only this I see. 3This is not vision. 4It is merely an illusion of reality, because my judgments have been made quite apart from reality. 5I am willing to recognize the lack of validity in my judgments, because I want to see. 6My judgments have hurt me, and I do not want to see according to them.

3. 1(3) I do not understand anything I see.

2How could I understand what I see when I have judged it amiss? 3What I see is the projection of my own errors of thought. 4I do not understand what I see because it is not understandable. 5There is no sense in trying to understand it. 6But there is every reason to let it go, and make room for what can be seen and understood and loved. 7I can exchange what I see now for this merely by being willing to do so. 8Is not this a better choice than the one I made before?

4. 1(4) These thoughts do not mean anything.

2The thoughts of which I am aware do not mean anything be­cause I am trying to think without God. 3What I call “my” thoughts are not my real thoughts. 4My real thoughts are the thoughts I think with God. 5I am not aware of them because I have made my thoughts to take their place. 6I am willing to rec­ognize that my thoughts do not mean anything, and to let them go. 7I choose to have them be replaced by what they were in­tended to replace. 8My thoughts are meaningless, but all creation lies in the thoughts I think with God.

5. 1(5) I am never upset for the reason I think.

2I am never upset for the reason I think because I am constantly trying to justify my thoughts. 3I am constantly trying to make them true. 4I make all things my enemies, so that my anger is justified and my attacks are warranted. 5I have not realized how much I have misused everything I see by assigning this role to it. 6I have done this to defend a thought system that has hurt me, and that I no longer want. 7I am willing to let it go.
