There is no cause but mind. To release attack thoughts you must see there is no difference between attacking and being attacked. Attack is not possible. Jesus teaches, "I am not a body. And my mind cannot attack. So I can not be sick." (W-136.20:5-7) You believe you have attacked God in your mind. Attack and defense seem to be the natural order so we don't question the idea of attack. It is the linchpin illusion . . .
