What is producing this world is insane, and so is what it produces. Reality is not insane, and we have real thoughts as well as insane ones.“My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.”
“I am upset because I see a meaningless world.” Insane thoughts are upsetting. Only chaos rules a world that represents chaotic thinking, and chaos has no laws.
“A meaningless world engenders fear.” But such a world is not real. We have given it the illusion of reality, and have suffered from our belief in it.
“God did not create a meaningless world.” God is the Source of all meaning, and everything that is real is in His Mind. It is in our mind too, because He created it with us.
“My thoughts are images that I have made.” Suffering and loss and death shows us that we are seeing only the representation of our insane thoughts, and are not allowing our real thoughts to cast their beneficent light on what we see. Yet God’s way is sure. Our Will is His, and we will place no other gods before Him.
