We experience being powerless, unable to change our mind, because we try to act alone. Acting – thinking – as “individuals” we perpetuate the dream of separation in which we have predetermined we will suffer the rewards of guilt. Only when we have let forgiveness heal our need to be separate and we begin to see everybody’s needs the same as ours will the power, the ability, to change our mind return. Changing the individual dream only keeps the dream in place; nothing really changes. Seeing a brother’s interest exactly the same as ours bridges the dreams divide between us. When you see “him” as part of you and both as part of God, the Truth is restored in Mind. The split is gone and mind can again function as a whole and change its thoughts.
