Review III

L e s s o n  113

1For morning and evening review:

[95] I am One Self, united with my Creator. 

All of Us are One grand Totality, ever unfolding as each One of Us, always uniquely. In other words, each perfect One is intrinsic to the One. Each One is indispensable to God.

2 Serenity and perfect peace are mine
Because I am One Self, completely whole,
At one with all creation and with God.

I need every One, and every One needs Me. This, the Nature of Reality.

[96] Salvation comes from my One Self. 

From being Part of the amazing entirety of God. My Reality.

3 From my One Self, – the Holy Spirit – Whose knowledge still remains
Within my mind, I see God’s perfect plan
For my salvation perfectly fulfilled. 

For God’s Reality is ever-available to Me, awaiting My re-acceptance of It.

4 On the hour: 

5 I am One Self, united with my Creator.

I am never separated nor is it possible to really be alone. I can awaken from this fantasy as I am willing.

6 On the half hour: 

7 Salvation comes from my One Self.

I need not look at what seems to be going on without, but just correct what is going on within.  My One Self can and will gladly make all needed correction. I need but agree.

Review III

1 For morning and evening review:

[93] Light and joy and peace abide in me. 

I need but remember that this must truly be, when I am willing to abide as He, Our belovèd Father-Mother, Presence of all Love.

2 I am the home of light and joy and peace. 

Dear God, let Me remember that there is no ‘Me’ apart from Thee, so light and joy and peace must also be My qualities.

I welcome them into the home I share
With God because I am a part of Him.

So I can never be disconsolate when I am at Home.  And Home is not a place – a fixed location – but rather it is a state of Harmony Of Mind Expressed.1


[94] I am as God created me. 

Separation has never been a Reality for Me.

3 I will remain forever as I was,

Created by the Changeless like Himself. 

For Spirit is Eternal Love and always is consistent.

And I am one with Him, and He with me. 

There is not – there could never really be – a separation. Only dreams can seem to be fragmented. For all God’s Qualities are Unity, indivisible.

4 On the hour: 

5 Light and joy and peace abide in me.

They are Truth of Me. All that I can be.

6 On the half hour:

7 I am as God created me. 

So let Me always will to be as He.

Review III

1 For morning and evening review:

[91] Miracles are seen in light.

What is Light but Spirit’s understanding of Reality, which You see either clearly or darkly as if through a glass. It depends on You.

2 I cannot see in darkness. Let the light

– God’s illumination, ever-present –

Of holiness and truth light up my mind,
And let me see the innocence within.

Mine, as well as that of all My Others.

 

[92] Miracles are seen in light, and light and strength are one.

3 I see through strength, the gift of God to me.

Brother help Me understand this strength of which You often speak. Gladly dear Sister. It is quite simple. A Dreamer on their own is weak, inharmonious, the consequence of believing separation really has occurred.  A Dreamer belief that is both strange and quite terrifying.

My weakness is the dark His gift dispels

– the self-centered, foolish Dreamer mindset –

By giving me His strength to take its place.

Strength is the illumination of His universal Love. So shall I freely Love all my Brothers. Light and Love are always joined together.

4 On the hour: 

5 Miracles are seen in light. 

Miracles exist because God is Love. They are quite impartial, coming but from the willingness of the recipient. Only a grateful heart will notice them.

6 On the half hour: 

7 Miracles are seen in light, and light and strength are one.

Miracles are visible to the willing heart, even those that seem made of stone. They really aren’t when somewhere – perhaps deep within – They’re willing to give and to receive God’s great Love.

Review III

1 Our third review begins today.

The greater turmoil in the world, the faster fly the days. This is but avoidance. Yet if You would be good enough to get still and pay attention, You would see that You are doing nothing but going round and round in circles.

We will review two of the last 20 ideas each day until we have reviewed them all. We will observe a special format for these practice periods which you are urged to follow as closely as you can. We understand, of course, that it may be impossible for you to undertake what is suggested here as optimal each day and every hour of the day.

If You can, that would be optimal, so at least come as close as is possible!

2 Learning will not be hampered when you miss a practice period because it is impossible at the appointed time. Nor is it necessary that you make excessive efforts to be sure that you catch up in terms of numbers. Rituals are not our aim and would defeat our learning goal.

Your willingness, of course, is optimal. ‘Forgetting’ is another way – perceived by You to be acceptable – of Your blatant refusal of being Guided, twenty-four, seven.

So You can ‘forget’ …

3 But learning will be hampered when you skip a practice period because you are unwilling to devote the time to it which you are asked to give. Do not deceive yourself in this.

Please look at what You’re doing honestly.

Unwillingness can be most carefully concealed behind a cloak of situations you cannot control. Learn to distinguish situations which are poorly suited to your practicing from those which you establish to uphold a camouflage for your unwillingness.

Who’s writing the script?  Next question is “Why?” What are You getting from this resistance?  Oh, yes! To authorize Yourself.  To make You the captain of Your ship; to keep You forever dreaming.

4 Those practice periods which you have lost because you did not want to do them for whatever reason should be done as soon as you have changed your mind about your goal. You are unwilling to cooperate in practicing salvation only if it interferes with goals you hold more dear.

I know it seems like You’re just too busy, or else You are oblivious. But when You really want something, would You not be sure to remember?  You know that You would! And, yes, the ego has more sway over all of You than You currently believe. Never underestimate the ego, despite its blatant unreality. Its goals are not Yours.

When you withdraw the value given them, allow your practice periods to be replacements for your litanies to them. They gave you nothing. But your practice periods offer you everything. Accept their offering and be at peace.

For all the words I use, the message here is very simple: Be here for giving; and not for getting! What is the Gift We are to give, but Love.

5 The format you should use for these reviews is this: devote five minutes twice a day or longer if you would prefer to contemplating the ideas assigned. Read over the ideas and comments which are written first in each day’s exercises. Then begin to think about them quietly, letting your mind relate them to your needs, your seeming problems, and all your concerns. 

Look upon Your work with these Lessons as oases in the enormous desert of the dream of being so-called ‘human’.

Would You be a ‘human’ if Christ called to You and said: Brothers, Sisters, choose again! Why would You pretend to be what You’re not?

6 Place the ideas within your mind, and let it use them as it chooses. Give it faith that it will use them wisely, being helped in its decisions by the One Who gave the thoughts to you.

For they have been structured lovingly for every One of You.

What can you trust but what is in your mind?

All that You can control is Your thinking.  For thinking does govern all Your actions.

Have faith, in these reviews, the means the Holy Spirit uses will not fail.

How could it be when S/He comes straight from God, direct to Your mind.

The wisdom of your mind will come to your assistance. Give it direction at the start, then lean back in quiet faith, and let it use the ideas you have given it as they were given you.

Books that teach God’s healing pour forth from Him.

7 You have been given them in perfect trust, in perfect confidence that you would use them well, in perfect faith that you would understand their messages and use them for yourself.

If You have not yet understood, today can be the day of Your understanding. A resurrection of the Son of God from eons of thinking S/He is ‘human’.

Offer them to your mind in that same trust and confidence and faith. It will not fail. It is the Holy Spirit’s chosen means for your salvation. And with His trust merits yours as well.

Remember that the Holy Spirit really is You. Truth now and Truth forever.

8 We emphasize the benefits to you if you devote the first five minutes of the day to your review and also give the last five minutes of your waking day to it. If this cannot be done, at least try to divide them so you undertake one in the morning, and the other in the hour just before you go to sleep.

To begin rightly and end rightly is natural to You.

9 The exercises to be done throughout the day are equally important and perhaps of even greater value. You have been inclined to do the exercises and then go on to other things, without applying what you learned to them. As a result, your learning has had little reinforcement, and you have not given it the opportunity to prove its worth to you.

Thus the necessity of speaking on these Lessons further.

10 Here is another chance to use it well. In these reviews we stress the need to let your learning not lie idly by between your longer practice periods. Attempt to give your daily two ideas a brief but serious review each hour. Use one on the hour and the other one a half an hour later. You need not give more than just a moment to each one.

The greatest benefit is Your willingness to be obedient to God’s Gifts.

11 Repeat it, and allow your mind to rest a little time in silence and in peace. Then turn to other things, but try to keep the thought with you and let it serve to help you keep your peace throughout the day. If you are shaken, think of it again. These practice periods are planned to help you form the habit of applying what you learn each day to everything you do.

The Course is not a religion but a lovely and efficient way to eternal Life, right now here!

12 Do not repeat it and then lay it down.

This is not rote memory, but is living, breathing Scripture, and – like Science and Health – it is intended for Your healing.

Its usefulness is limitless to you.

The Truth You’re being given has no boundaries, no limits.

And it is meant to serve you in all ways, all times and places, and whenever you need help of any kind. Try, then, to take it with you in the business of the day and make it holy, worthy of God’s Son, acceptable to God and to your Self. 

Let It become a living Thing as You!

13 Each day’s review assignment will conclude with a restatement of the thought to use each hour and the one to be applied on each half hour as well. Forget them not. This second chance with each of these ideas will bring such large advances that we come from these reviews with learning gains so great that we begin again on solid ground. 

Carpe diem1 for this most happy, holy activity!

14 Do not forget how little you have learned. Do not forget how much you can learn now. Do not forget your Father’s need of you as you review these thoughts He gave to you.

Do this for Yourself, and for Your Others. For We All are One.

Workbook PART I

L e s s o n  110

I am as God created me.

I am as God is constantly creating Me, for S/He has not stopped.  Creation – or more properly, Revelation – is an ongoing thing.  In fact, It is forever Eternal!

Then what place can sin, disease, and death have anywhere, for they are not of God’s creating.  This fact, understood, should be enough to heal the ‘sinner’, dismiss disease summarily, and raise up the ‘dead’ unto Eternity.

1We will repeat today’s idea from time to time.Dreamers seem to forget it easily! For this one thought would be enough to save you and the world if you believed that it is true. For it is the good news of the gospel. Its truth – it is surely truth – would mean that you have made no changes in yourself which have reality, nor changed the universe so that what God created was replaced by fear and evil, misery and death.  All those ugly concomitants of the dream that seem so real. They really aren’t.  Sing hallelujah.  Praise God’s constancy, which is Yours as well.  As You choose to see the Things of God, You will have Reality instead of dreams.

2 If you remain as God created you, fear has no meaning, evil is not real, and misery and death do not exist. There is no “if” about it.  You are as God is creating You.  S/He’s always oh the job.  God would have to change before You could, for You are His direct offspringing.  Rest assured of that!  Although it is not at all reassuring to the ego! Remember that You are not an ego. Today’s idea is therefore all you need to let complete correction heal your mind and give you perfect vision which will heal all the mistakes that any mind has made at any time or place. How can this be?  How does it work? Same answer always: Minds are joined.  There is but One Mind that We All are an equal part of.

Where comes the ego?  You might liken it to having a migraine.  Thought has now wandered from Reality, down an upset pathway into pain.  Just as the pain is really non-existent, so is the upset. It simply seems very real to You.

But call for prayer, or even aspirin, and what happened to the pain? Thought has been satisfied that something was done, and where has the headache gone to?  Native nothingness! It is enough to heal the past and make the future free. It is enough to let the present be accepted as it is. It is enough to let time be the means for all the world to learn escape from time and every change that time appears to bring in passing by. You can gain freedom from believing change.  Its seeming never has, and never could, ever make it real.

3 If you remain as God created you, – and You surely do! – appearances cannot replace the truth, health cannot turn to sickness, nor can death be substitute for life or fear for love.  And never can Good turn into evil. All this has not occurred if you remain as God created you. And again I say that You surely do! You need no thought but just this one to let redemption come to light the world and free it from the past.

What is the past in ever always Now?

4 In this one thought is all the past undone; the present saved to quietly extend into a timeless future. If you are as God created you, then there has been no separation of your mind from His, no split between your mind and other minds, and only unity within your own.  This whole endless seeming is but dreaming.

5 The healing power of today’s idea is limitless.  For only Good is ever going on. It is the birthplace of all miracles, the great restorer of the truth to the awareness of the world. Practice today’s idea with gratitude. This is the truth that comes to set you free. This is the truth that God has promised you. This is the Word in which all sorrow ends.  Only Good is Real.

6 For your five minute practice periods, begin with this quotation from the text:

7 I am as God created me. His Son can suffer nothing.
And I am His Son. 

Now and forever.

8 Then, with this statement firmly in your mind, try to discover in your mind the Self Who is the holy Son of God Himself. How do I do this Brother but to join with You?  That is exactly how You do it Sister. The Real Self was hidden by the separation. Thus joining is the only correction. Seek Him within you Who is Christ in you, – what else could It be but Holy Spirit; Your Real Self kept forever safe for You  – the Son of God and brother to the world-the savior who has been forever saved, with power to save whoever touches Him however lightly, asking for the Word that tells him he is brother unto Him.  Remember, You All are just as I am.  You’ve but forgotten.  I’m reminding You.  I’m re-minding You!

9 You are as God created you. Today honor your Self.  Heed but Your Real Self and not the ego. Let graven images you made to be the Son of God instead of what He is be worshipped not today. Forsake Your idols for the Son of God. The ego is Your idol; the Holy Spirit is the Son of God. You are choosing every instant. Deep in your mind the holy Christ in you is waiting your acknowledgment as you. And you are lost and do not know yourself while He is unacknowledged and unknown.  This is why I’m always offering You a different choice, saying: Choose again.  You can choose, You know.

10 Seek Him today, and find Him. He will be your savior from all idols you have made. For when you find Him you will understand how worthless are your idols and how false the images which you believed were you. Today we make a great advance to truth by letting idols go and opening our hands and hearts and minds to God today.

11 We will remember Him throughout the day with thankful hearts and loving thoughts for all who meet with us today, for it is thus that we remember Him. When We – very willingly – share His Love. And we will say, that we may be reminded of His Son, our holy Self, the Christ in each of us:  Christ is Each of Us!

12 I am as God created me.  Nothing can change Me.  I’ve only dreamed that I was different, and now I’m waking from that foolish dream.

13 Let us declare this truth as often as we can. “I am as God created Me.”  God is the only Power. This is the Word of God that sets you free. This is the key that opens up the gate of Heaven, and which lets you enter in the peace of God and His eternity.  There is not – nor ever has been – any real separation. Albeit unseen, this is still Heaven!

Workbook PART I

L e s s o n  109

I rest in God.

Which means that I rest in the happiest of tranquilities.  For God, while infinitely interesting and always joyous, never is – nor could be – frenetic.

1 We ask for rest today and quietness unshaken by the world’s appearances.

So We choose for peace instead of frantic.

We ask for peace and stillness in the midst of all the turmoil born of clashing dreams.

Seven billion dreams; ninety-nine percent of them self-centered!

We ask for safety and for happiness, although we seem to look on danger and on sorrow. And we have the thought that will answer our asking with what we request. 

There is no selfishness in Our request for true peace and happiness can only bless all Our Others.

2 I rest in God.” This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek.  

It brings a new awareness to You, as well as to the world.  A knowing that is crucial to Us All. The Consciousness that stood behind My resurrection is what will bring the resurrection of the world.

“I rest in God.” This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is.

All Reality can but be of God.

Here is the end of suffering for all the world and everyone who ever came and yet will come to linger for a while.

God gives only joy, never suffering. God is rest indeed; rest from all dreams invented by the Son.

Here is the thought in which the Son of God is born again, to recognize himself.

3 I rest in God.”

God My Love, My support, My Saviour.

Completely undismayed this thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God.

The surety that there is only Good.

There is no suffering it cannot heal. There is no problem which it cannot solve. And no appearance but will turn to truth

– completely transformed –

before the eyes of you who rest in God.

4 This is the day of peace. You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate, your rest remains completely undisturbed.

You stay quiet in God’s Reality.

Yours is the rest of truth. 

Peace of God, indeed.

Appearances cannot intrude on you. You call to all to join you in your rest, and they will hear and come to you because you rest in God.

In peaceful safety.

They will not hear another voice but yours because you gave your voice to God and now you rest in Him and let Him speak through you.

Accounting it a holy privilege to bless Your holy Others.

5 In Him you have no cares and no concerns, no burdens, no anxiety, no pain, no fear of future, and no past regrets.  

You are peaceful in the present, never visiting the past or future. Time itself means naught to You.

In timelessness you rest, while time goes by without its touch upon you, for your rest can never change in any way at all.

It goes with You wherever You do go, for Your mind stays at peaceful rest as God.

6 You rest today. And as you close your eyes, sink into stillness. Let these periods of rest and respite reassure your mind that all its frantic fantasies were but the dreams of fever that has passed away.

This is true health and healing: this is peace.

Let it be still and thankfully accept its healing. No more fearful dreams will come now that you rest in God. Take time today to slip away from dreams and into peace.

It is Your healing remedy for all of Your disturbance.

7 Each hour that you take your rest today, a tired mind is suddenly made glad, a bird with broken wings begins to sing,

– and as I always add: to fly again –

a stream long dry begins to flow again,

and then does become a streaming river.  See what You can do!

The world is born again each time you rest, and hourly remember that you came to bring the peace of God into the world that it might take its rest along with you. 

These rests are the holy highlights of Your day and each of them bless untold millions.

8With each five minutes that you rest today the world is nearer waking. And the time when rest will be the only thing there is comes closer to all worn and tired minds, too weary now to go their way alone. And they will hear the bird begin to sing and see the stream begin to flow again, with hope reborn and energy restored to walk with lightened steps along the road that suddenly seems easy as they go.

As You read these words, feel energy and strength and joy restored to the Son of God.

9 You rest within the peace of God today

– He is gifting You –

and call upon your brothers from your rest, to draw them to their rest along with you. You will be faithful to your trust today, forgetting no one, bringing everyone into the boundless circle of your peace, the holy sanctuary where you rest. 

For Peace is a most holy place, an intrinsic part of mind.

10 Open the temple doors,

– for a mind open to God is, indeed, a sanctuary –

and let them come from far across the world, and near as well—your distant brothers and your closest friends—bid them all enter here and rest with you.

With open heart give Love’s invitation.

You rest within the peace of God today, quiet and unafraid. Each brother comes to take his rest and offer it to you. 

Peace is palpable.

11 We rest together here, for thus our rest is made complete,

– together is a holy word of Love –

and what we give today we have received already. Time is not the guardian of what we give today.

This gift of peace is quite unlimited.

We give to those unborn and those passed by, to every Thought of God, and to the Mind in Which these Thoughts were born and where they rest.

Again, let Us remember minds are joined.

And we remind them of their resting place each time we tell ourselves,

12 I rest in God.

Our Source and Our Home.

Workbook PART I

L e s s o n  108

To give and to receive are one in truth.

Never can the Giver be separated from the Gift, for S/He is part of it. Just so, God’s Gifts are Gifts of God Himself. And Your own Gifts are Gifts of You, Yourself. And Self but grows when It is extended.

1 Vision depends upon today’s idea.

What do I mean when I speak of Vision but the ability to clearly see God’s Reality.

The light is in it, for it reconciles all seeming opposites.

Truly it is Light Itself, for that is how it sees all things.

And what is light except the resolution, born of peace, of all your conflicts and mistaken thoughts into one concept which is wholly true? Even that one will disappear because the Thought behind it will appear instead, to take its place.

Knowing that is the Source of all peace and happiness; awake and never dreaming.

And now we are at peace forever, for the dream is over now.

2 True light which makes true vision possible is not the light the body’s eyes behold. It is a state of mind which has become so unified that darkness cannot be perceived at all.

In other words, it no longer thinks of Good and evil, for All there is is Good.

And thus what is the same

– all Things Good and Real –

is seen as one, while what is not the same remains unnoticed, for it is not there.

As I have mentioned other years, it’s like the rhyme of the man upon the stair who wasn’t there, which quite  thoroughly describes the entire dream. It isn’t there, … and it can go away.1

For imperfection really isn’t there!

3 This is the light which shows no opposites, and vision, being healed, has power to heal.

Hard as this may be to comprehend – for it is quite contrary to the senses – all there is is Light. What appears as ‘dark’ is but Light’s suppositious opposite. As the Reality of Spirit, there is no solid earth to block the radiance of the sun. So can the Bible say: “There is no night there.”2  So Reality can know only Light, for All is Spirit.

This is the light

– this understanding –

that brings your peace of mind to other minds, to share it and be glad that they are one with you and with themselves.

For in this Light We clearly see there is no separation; because this Light brings Us understanding, which is a whole different kind of Vision.

This is the light which heals because it brings single perception, based upon one frame of reference from which one meaning comes.

Good alone is Real, is the Holy Truth on which We do rely consistently. Here is where I stood to heal 2000 years ago, and where I am still standing.

4 Here are both giving and receiving seen as different aspects of one Thought Whose truth does not depend on which is seen as first, nor which appears to be in second place. Here it is understood that both occur together, that the Thought remain complete.

This is the key to understanding that there is no separation of any kind. They are simply one single act, just as Giver and Receiver are also One. Let Me put it this way, using the ice skating jump the triple axel.3 You can read below the moves that go into it, and they are not separate, one from another although the skate goes from one edge to another. Just so with giving and receiving: they are elements of one act of beauty.

And in this understanding is the base on which all opposites are reconciled because they are perceived from the same frame of reference which unifies this Thought.

And if the opposites are diametrically opposed to one another – one being anathema to God – then one is just the suppositious opposite, such as good and so-called ‘evil’. (Which is but ‘live’ spelled backwards.) Just so, as ‘dark’ is proved to be impossible to Spirit.

5 One thought, completely unified, will serve to unify all thought. This is the same as saying one correction will suffice for all correction or that to forgive one brother wholly is enough to bring salvation to all minds.

For once You have really seen the Christ, You see Him everywhere. And every One is healed for minds are joined.

For these are but some special cases of one law which holds for every kind of learning if it be directed by the One Who knows the truth. 

In other words: Pay attention to Me, for Christ is but synonymous with Truth.  Even when My words are hard to take, do not get offended like the Pharisees, but ask Me for help, expectant always of Your healing.

6 To learn that giving and receiving are the same has special usefulness because it can be tried so easily and seen as true.

Although at this moment You may doubt it.

And when this special case has proved it always works in every circumstance where it is tried, the thought behind it can be generalized to other areas of doubt and double vision.

You are wondering if doubt is always double vision? Indeed, it is; for what does it doubt but God’s eternal, and ever-present Goodness.

And from there it will extend and finally arrive at the one Thought Which underlies them all.5

7 Today we practice with the special case of giving and receiving. We will use this simple Lesson  in the obvious because it has results we cannot miss. To give is to receive.

Be patient! Listen!

Today we will attempt to offer peace to everyone and see how quickly peace returns to us.

Oh yes! Now You see! What You focus on comes right back to Thee!

Light is tranquility,

– for, indeed, You see –

and in that peace is vision given us and we can see.

You will quickly find that this is true quite universally. You must have something or You can’t give it.

This is surely obvious in receiving Guidance, that You must first receive in order to give it. As You give it, You get continually clearer in Your own understanding of what I am re-minding every One.  Gifts shared increase quite exponentially!

8 So we begin the practice periods with the instruction for today and say:

9 To give and to receive are one in truth.

I will receive what I am giving now. 

What does My Brother need? Is it what I would like to receive?

10 Then close your eyes, and for five minutes think of what you would hold out to everyone to have it yours. You might, for instance, say:

11 To everyone I offer quietness.
To everyone I offer peace of mind.
To everyone I offer gentleness.

To every One I offer the joy of feeling God’s great Love!  … Share how good it feels, belovèd Sister!

It feels wonderful. He’s right every One! This is amazing.

12 Say each one slowly, and then pause a while, expecting to receive the gift you gave, and it will come to you in the amount in which you gave it. You will find you have exact return, for this is what you asked. It might be helpful, too, to think of one to whom to give your gifts. He represents the others, and through him you give to all. 

And if You know those in special need, feel free to give to them quite specifically.

13 Our very simple lesson for today will teach you much. Effect and cause will be far better understood from this time on, and we will make much faster progress now.

Keep close in mind this basic Truth: Minds are joined. Let Me but think well of My Others.

Think of the exercises for today as quick advances in your learning, made still faster and more sure each time you say:

14 To give and to receive are one in truth.  

And remember that: “Freely You have received, freely give,”3 are like the parts of a triple axel4: one grand glorious move.

1I Met A Man Who Wasn’t There
Hughes Mearns
Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away…

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door… (slam!)

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away…

*~*~*
Jesus’ note: Most of the time, when You see Your Brothers, You are seeing a man/woman that isn’t really there, for You see a ‘human’ and not the Son of God. So this poem really is quite apt.  I will keep repeating this until You finally get it. We All are the Son of God, and every One is included.

2Revelation 22:5 King James Version

22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

1st John 1:15

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

3 Matthew 10:8

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

1.                        Romans 8:32

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

2.                        1 Corinthians 2:12

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

3.                        Revelation 21:6

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

4You can read about the triple axel here: http://figureskating.about.com/od/olympiciceskatingevents/tp/olympicmoves.htm

Each element is part of one amazing whole, just as giving and receiving are.

5 Since Sun~Rose was iffy on this, I suggested that She look up “the exception proves the rule” and this page was found that really has her laughing, so I suggested that She post it so that We don’t get lost in seriousity. (Yes, I just coined that word! A state of being over-serious.)

Workbook PART I

L e s s o n  107

Truth will correct all errors in my mind.

Truth is just irresistible. Who could ever withstand It, for It is but another name for God and Reality! Sticking with the Truth is like hanging with a friend who always sees the best in You.

1 What can correct illusions but the truth?  

Therefore, We must go to God for absolutely everything, if We would be safe. God is the One Reality; It is forever. The ego dreams that it can create illusions. Yet they are not real, so why believe them? It must be because You prefer to dream. This is an error!

And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered, errors disappear.

This infuriates the ego, which insists that dreams are real, and God, illusion. It is the liar. As I said in Bible times, right “from the beginning”.1 Its myriad ‘creations’ seem quite convincing, and Truth does just dismiss them easily when You stick with it.

They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because without belief they have no life, and so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.

The ego cannot stand the Truth of God; His omnipresence just dismisses it. It is not a complicated process.

2 Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel? Try to remember when there was a time—perhaps a minute, maybe even less—when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe.

For You are, You know. In that instant You could see forever. That one instant is God’s Reality. Ask for the experience forever!

Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity. 

Imagine Be-ing happiness like that. It is Yours for the willingness I ask.

3 Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times and then be multiplied another hundred more. And now you have a hint, not more than just the faintest intimation of the state your mind will rest in when the truth has come.

The ego bitterly resists Your doing this, for You will withdraw Your mind from it without a moment’s hesitation!

4 Without illusions there could be no fear, no doubt, and no attack.

For Reality is happy, perfect.

When truth has come, all pain is over, for there is no room for transitory thoughts and dead ideas to linger in your mind.

For God’s Reality is seen again, and It is happy!

Truth occupies your mind completely, liberating you from all beliefs in the ephemeral. They have no place because the truth has come, and they are nowhere. They cannot be found, for truth is everywhere forever now.

It always has been there; You just refused to see It, for You far preferred to dream.

Now, as the dream gets worse, Truth has become somewhat appealing.

5 When truth has come, it does not stay a while to disappear or change to something else. It does not shift and alter in its form, nor come and go and go and come again.

That is error’s way. Truth is consistent.

It stays exactly as it always was, to be depended on in every need and trusted with a perfect trust in all the seeming difficulties and the doubts that the appearances the world presents engender.

Truth is the only remedy for every need of healing.

They will merely flow away when truth corrects the errors in your mind.

All errors disappear when faced by Truth.  Truth is Light, and Light dispels the darkness.

6 When truth has come, it harbours in its wings the gift of perfect constancy and love which does not falter in the face of pain but looks beyond it, steadily and sure.

What It sees is but Your Reality as the Son of God.

Here is the gift of healing, for the truth needs no defense, and therefore no attack is possible.

Truth is the Healer.

Illusions can be brought to truth to be corrected. But the truth stands far beyond illusions and cannot be brought to them to turn them into truth.

So what is Truth, and what is illusion? It’s very simple. Truth is Spirit, God. All things material – including body – are illusions.

7 Truth does not come and go nor shift nor change, in this appearance now and then in that, evading capture and escaping grasp.

It is consistent and reliable. It never fails You, for It is an experience of God.

It does not hide. It stands in open light, in obvious accessibility. It is impossible that anyone could seek it truly and would not succeed.

Always available, its perfect healing.

8 Today belongs to truth.

And every day throughout Eternity, whether You sleep or whether You’re Awake: Truth ever-present and reliable.

Give truth its due, and it will give you yours. You were not meant to suffer and to die. Your Father wills these dreams be gone.

Don’t hang on to them, for they are useless.

Let truth correct them all. We do not ask for what we do not have. We merely ask for what belongs to us, that we may recognize it as our own.

And so We ask to see Reality.

9 Today we practice on the happy note of certainty that has been born of truth.

We choose to trust wholeheartedly in God. We toss away our crutches, whatever form they have taken. We don’t need them now.

The shaky and unsteady footsteps of illusion is not our approach today.

We walk securely, knowing where We go.

We are as certain of success as we are sure we live and hope and breathe and think. We do not doubt we walk with truth today and count on it to enter into all the exercises that we do this day.

For We have made room for Truth in Our minds, and have given to them inspiration.

10 Begin by asking Him Who goes with you upon this undertaking that He be in your awareness as you go with Him.

Just as He does, You now can walk as Christ.

You are not made of flesh and blood and bone but were created by the self-same Thought which gave the gift of life to Him as well.

Just like Mine, Your Reality is Christ. This Truth is so for every One of Us. What more could You, the Son of God, ask for!

He is your Brother and so like to you your Father knows that you are both the same. It is your Self you ask to go with you, and how could He be absent where you are?

My Self is the Reality of Me.

11 Truth will correct all errors in your mind which tell you you could be apart from Him.

There is no separation from Yourself. What seems to be is not Reality but only seeming. And seeming is not just rhyme but is synonym to dreaming.

You speak to Him today and make your pledge to let His function be fulfilled through you.

Christ function is to Be You: the Holy Son of God You are.

To share His function is to share His joy;

His joy to Be You.

His confidence is with you, as you say:

12 Truth will correct all errors in my mind,
And I will rest in Him Who is my Self.

In Truth We All are Part of sacred One: Our belovèd God.

13 Then let Him lead you gently to the truth which will envelop you and give you peace so deep and tranquil that you will return to the familiar world reluctantly.

And peace goes with You. Every One who comes never wants to leave; yet for joy to be complete, it must include All Your Others.

The world has need of You, Your new knowing.

14 And yet you will be glad to look again upon this world. For you will bring with you the promise of the changes which the truth that goes with you will carry to the world.

To bring God’s good promises is the best Gift You could ever give, for they stand ready to be Your holy Reality.

They will increase with every gift you give of five small minutes, and the errors that surround the world will be corrected as you let them be corrected in your mind.

No matter how separated the world seems to You to be, Your corrections can be Reality.

15 Do not forget your function for today.

For You are like the Sower of good seed. Broadcast it widely!

Each time you tell yourself with confidence, “Truth will correct all errors in my mind,” you speak for all the world and Him Who would release the world as He would set you free.

Thank You for Your willingness and for Your participation.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Workbook PART I

L e s s o n  106

Let me be still and listen to the truth.

For a mind that’s constantly jabbering is only hearing the ego’s babblings.  In stillness, instead, comes the Voice for Love.

1 If you will lay aside the ego’s voice, – tell it to shut up! – however loudly it may seem to call; if you will not accept its petty gifts which give you nothing that you really want; – except being ‘right’ – if you will listen with an open mind, which has not told you what salvation is; then you will hear the mighty Voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in its messages.

And with all Its Power, It still remains so sweet and gentle.

2 Listen, and hear your Father speak to you through His appointed Voice, Which silences the thunder of the meaningless and shows the way to peace to those who cannot see.

Its quiet does efficiently shut up the whining, yet so very beguiling, voice of the ego.

Be still today and listen to the truth. Be not deceived by voices of the dead which tell you they have found the source of life and offer it to you for your belief. Attend them not, but listen to the truth.

For ‘death’ is such a pointless, loveless thing, so shut out its siren song, and listen for the Truth of Spirit.  And, as the poet said: realize that in the grave do none embrace.  For ‘death’ is not just lifeless; again, it is loveless.

And there is no such real thing, for it seems to exist only in the dream.  Why can the ‘body’ not die?  Because the Light and Love of God is its sum and its Substance.

3 Be not afraid today to circumvent the voices of the world; – ego chatter multiplied by billions of voices, each one focused on themselves – walk lightly past their meaningless persuasion. Hear them not.

They have nothing of value to give You..

Be still today, and listen to the truth. Go past all things which do not speak of Him – as if You were in a house of horrors; awful yet You know they aren’t real for they are not of God – Who holds your happiness within His hand, held out to you in welcome and in love. – Feel His Love for You. – Hear only Him today, and do not wait to reach Him longer. Hear one Voice today.

You know when He is speaking for His words lead You from that house of horrors straight to happiness and peace.

4 Today the promise of God’s Word is kept.

Accept You the blessing most willingly.  For it brings to You peace and happiness.

Hear and be silent. He would speak to you.

He always does speak, and His words are Love.

He comes with miracles a thousand times as happy and as wonderful as those you ever dreamt or wished for in your dreams. 

The happiness of Life as One as God is just wonderful!

His miracles are true. They will not fade when dreaming ends. They end the dream instead and last forever, for they come from God to His dear Son, whose other name is you.

How very much He Loves You, beyond words.

5 Prepare yourself for miracles today.

Don’t let this promise slip past casually.  For I am not speaking idle words to You. I mean every single word I say.

Today allow your Father’s ancient pledge to you and all your brothers to be kept.

From the unholy instant of the separation – and before, as the strange thought came – His Love is binding You as Love – and in the present – forever One with Him.

Hear Him today, and listen to the Word which lifts the veil which lies upon the earth and wakes all those who sleep and cannot see.

For as You stir and the dream hold is weakened, You are in the perfect place to help heal all Your Brothers, and all Your Sisters, Holy Ones of God who have forgotten.

God calls to them through you. He needs your voice to speak to them, for who could reach God’s Son except his Father calling through your Self?

Belovèd Ones, whose reawakened Love for the Father is no longer completely buried by the ego, who is in a better place to communicate with those who are still deep in dreams?  While They have blocked the Father’s direct Love from their minds, They have not blocked Yours completely; for ego loves approval.

When You let Your Love flow directly from the Father-Mother, then can They feel It.  This is why I said not to hide the Light of Your Love under a bushel basket, but to let It radiate far and wide.1

6 Hear Him today, and offer Him your voice to speak to all the multitudes who wait to hear the Word that He will speak today.

How will You speak to multitudes but both ‘in person’ and through Your consciousness filled with Your Love for God.  For All can feel it through their mind, for minds are joined.  And it will stir their Love for God and Heaven that has been so long dormant.

Although They know it not consciously, – these sleeping Sons of God – They wait longingly in their dream of hell for Your Love to free them.

Be ready for salvation. It is here and will today be given unto you. And you will learn your function from the One Who chose it in your Father’s Name for you.

7 Listen today, and you will hear a Voice Which will resound throughout the world through you.

Minds are always joined. When You hear, Your sleeping Brothers do too.

The Bringer of all miracles has need that you receive them first and thus become the joyous giver of what you received.

Belovèd Ones!  Let Us first rejoice together that You can hear My words so clearly and do understand them.  For God has entrusted You with them to share with all Brothers and Sisters.

Thus does salvation start and thus it ends; when everything is yours, and everything is given away, it will remain with you forever. And the L e s s o n  has been learned.

In giving are You are also receiving.

8 Today we practice giving, not the way you understand it now, but as it is. The longer exercises should begin with this request for your enlightenment:

9 I will be still and listen to the truth.
What does it mean to give and to receive?

10 Ask and expect an answer. Your request is one whose answer has been waiting long to be received by you. It will begin the ministry for which you came and which will free the world from thinking giving is a way to lose. And so the world becomes ready to understand and to receive.

11 Be still and listen to the truth today. For each five minutes spent in listening, a thousand minds are opened to the truth. And they will hear the holy Word you hear. And when the hour is past, you will again release a thousand more who pause to ask that truth be given them along with you.

12 Today the holy Word of God is kept through your receiving it to give away, so you can teach the world what giving means by listening and learning it of Him. Do not forget today to reinforce your choice to hear and to receive the Word by this reminder, given to yourself as often as is possible today:

13 Let me be still and listen to the truth.
I am the messenger of God today.
My voice is His, to give what I receive.

These instructions are complete.  Allow them to simply be You.

Workbook PART I

L e s s o n  105

God’s peace and joy are mine.

Therefore, these mental qualities must be Our right, and right now, immediately! Of course I do happily allow them.

1God’s peace and joy are yours. Today we will accept them, knowing they belong to us.

They are as intrinsic as the colour of Our eyes, Our capacity to Love.

And we will try to understand these gifts increase as we receive them.

Exponentially for just that little willingness which I’ve asked You to give Me. And from that giving, peace and joy appear (as if from nowhere, showing Love to be as always: now, here).

They are not like to the gifts the world can give, in which the giver loses as he gives the gift; the taker is the richer by his loss. These are not gifts, but bargains made with guilt.

I’ll love You – if You love Me – as long as I’d like “love” to be, not even one more unholy instant. So-called ‘love’ like this is but “born to die” like the Son of God who thinks He’s mortal. Experience does parallel beliefs, which come from choices.
Freedom comes from this great understanding that the Son of God can always choose again. How can this be when ‘time’ seems to be Your reality? Well, when You choose again for miracles, they then do become Your Reality.

2The truly given gift entails no loss. It is impossible that one can gain because another loses. This implies a limit and an insufficiency.

For Love has no boundaries, no limits.

No gift is given thus. Such “gifts” are but a bid for a more valuable return—a loan with interest to be paid in full; a temporary lending, meant to be a pledge of debt to be repaid with more than was received by him who took the gift.

3This strange distortion of what giving means pervades all levels of the world you see.

There is Love, and there is bargaining. Which one do You prefer? For bargaining is not that rewarding.

It strips all meaning from the gifts you give and leaves you nothing in the ones you take. A major learning goal this course has set is to reverse your view of giving, so you can receive. For giving has become a source of fear, and so you would avoid the only means by which you can receive.

To give still seems to imply some loss to You; and, yet, it is really only gain. For Dreamers look but through the eyes of selfish misperception.

4Accept God’s peace and joy, and you will learn a different way of looking at a gift. God’s gifts will never lessen when they are given away. They but increase thereby.

You can clearly see the Love is so apparent here. For You are listening intently to transcribe My words when You could, instead, be sleeping.

As Heaven’s peace and joy intensify when you accept them as God’s gift to you, so does the joy of your Creator grow when you accept His joy and peace as yours.

Every One and every Thing is blessed by Your glad acceptance. I speak to every single One of You. And just a few of You choose to listen. And yet – as the Bible does record – that few can change every One’s experience. Capacity to change You and to heal Your mind is what makes the Bible Holy.

And if You would have the Course be holy too, let it heal You.

5True giving is creation. It extends the limitless to the unlimited, eternity to timelessness, and love unto itself.

“Freely You have received, so freely give.1” So were My disciples told by Me. This is the holy Gift of God, which is but His Reality. It goes both ways: freely You have given, freely You receive.

It adds to all that is complete already, not in simple terms of adding more, for that implies that it was less before. It adds by letting what cannot contain itself fulfill its aim of giving everything it has away, securing it forever for itself.

How does this experience become Reality for You? Right when You do it! When You give it Life.

6Today accept God’s peace and joy as yours.

Even though God does not abide in dreams, still can His Oneness with You heal every nightmare of the dream and replace the pleasant dreams with eternal Reality.

Let Him complete Himself as He defines completion.

Since He is Your great All in all and everything to You, truly You can trust Him.

You will understand that what completes Him must complete His Son as well.

You’re His Belovèd with whom He is pleased.

He cannot give through loss. No more can you.

He is always giving Good to You. So will to accept It.

Receive His gift of joy and peace today, and He will thank you for your gift to Him.

For all He asks is that You receive His Gifts; Your reception is but Gift to Him.

7Today our practice periods will start a little differently. Begin today by thinking of those brothers who have been denied by you the peace and joy that are their right under the equal laws of God.

It may seem like I am playing hardball with You here, yet You do want to waken. And grudges only keep You fast asleep. There is no real, lasting peace and joy in dreaming endless dreams.

Here you denied them to yourself. And here you must return to claim them as your own. Think of your “enemies” a little while,

– yes, that one will surely do exceptionally well for You –

and tell each one as he occurs to you:

8My brother, peace and joy I offer you,
That I may have God’s peace and joy as mine.

Imagine Yourself embracing them, especially this One.

9Thus you prepare yourself to recognize God’s gifts to you and let your mind be free of all that would prevent success today.

You have not fully understood the high cost of grievances, yet You can see the scarcity of peace and joy that comes straight through to You from God. He is always gifting You, yet these gifts You’ve not accepted.

Now are you ready to accept the gift of peace and joy which God has given you.

Now You do release all those grievances. They bring naught but pain. Now You do forgive.

Now are you ready to experience the joy and peace you have denied yourself. Now you can say, “God’s peace and joy are mine,” for you have given what you would receive.

As You lift the heavy burdens You have laid on Your Brothers.

10You must succeed today if you prepare your mind as we suggest, for you have let all bars to peace and joy be lifted up, and what is yours can come to you at last.

You have learned to give as You would receive.

So tell yourself “God’s peace and joy are mine,” and close your eyes a while, and let His Voice assure you that the words you speak are true.

True they are, indeed. And Your spilling cup of God’s peace and joy is running over. You have good to share!

11Spend your five minutes thus with Him each time you can today, but do not think that less is worthless when you cannot give Him more. At least remember hourly to say the words which call on Him to give you what He wills to give and wills you to receive.

As You gladly let in His Love today, it becomes a day so much happier than any other!

12Determine not to interfere today with what He wills. And if a brother seems to tempt you to deny God’s gift to him, see it as but another chance to let yourself receive the gifts of God as yours.

This sweet chance You have to give an Other Love blesses You as well as blessing He.

Then bless your brother thankfully, and say:

13My brother, peace and joy I offer you,

– For I know You certainly deserve it –

That I may have God’s peace and joy as mine.

It’s just lovely to rejoice together!

1 Matthew 10:8

1. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Thus must I be the Presence of His Peace and Joy, for God is My Source.  All things Good and Real are what I am, for I can be nothing apart from Him, Universal Giver of all Good.
