A Course in Miracles made easy chapter 4 and 5

For those of you who have Alan Cohen A Course in Miracles made easy if you read anything in this book the absolute most thought-provoking chapters for me are chapters 4 and 5.
Chapter 4 talks about our frequent projection of our emotions on someone else. How often I have blamed someone else for making me upset or causing something bad to happen when it really is my own thoughts and projection of feelings. Obviously there’s much more to this but it is very well worth reading this chapter. The last quote that comes directly from A Course in Miracles says
There is no world apart from what you wish, and herein lies your ultimate released. Change but your mind on what you want to see and the world must change accordingly.
Chapter 5 talks about how there really is no forgiveness for our sins by God for he has never condemned us. This is a powerful chapter in helping to eliminate our feelings of hurt and guilt and shame. One of the key lines that I like from this chapter is
No one has the power to rub your happiness, unless you give that power to them. No one can drive you crazy unless you accept the passenger seat. Just as you choose and interpretation that hurts, you can choose one that heals.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt. The past is over. It can not touch me. All your past except it’s beauty is gone and nothing is left but a blessing.
