What a dream-like quality these recent days have had. It feels as if we are dreaming. And we must be! How else could this be so? It has to be a dream. And we’re going to wake up and then everything will go back to normal. Right?

And yet, in the next moment we realize that the world is still changed, and that it may stay changed forever.

Now it seems like we are awake, and it is real and yet everything is different. There is a sense of foreboding that encompasses everything. There is a sense that things are out of place and out of sync and nothing makes sense anymore, as if it did before. It’s as if someone took the playing board and threw it up in the air and now all the pieces are scattered. How will we put them back together? And can we?

And yet there is also a sense of Awareness and Presence and Aliveness that somehow feels familiar. Perhaps we remember having experienced all of these before, even though they didn’t last for long. Eventually, they dissolved, and everything went back to how it was before; but that’s not happening this time. This time is different.

This time the Awareness and Presence and Aliveness aren’t fading away and there is something else that is astonishing. We are not alone in our experience. The whole world has joined us.

Over the last decade the world has been united through electronic communication as never before and for the first time we, as a species, are experiencing a global event that impacts every one of us, with no exceptions, all at the same time.

The global event, of course, is the deadly and contagious virus that has reached into every facet of life for all the billions of people on our planet and has changed everything.

We seem to be awake now and yet it is still a dream. In A Course in Miracles we learn that we are awake within a dream of separation in which we all play a part. It teaches us that we are all waking up together to the Reality of our Oneness and to our Eternal nature and immortality.

“…your banishment is not of God and therefore does not exist. You are at home in God, dreaming of exile but perfectly capable of awakening to reality. Is it your will to do so? ACIM OE T.9.65

What is our will? So many of us have indeed responded to this viral threat as if, somehow, we were being called to once again make a choice. It is in these times of deep turmoil that everything peripheral and non-essential slips away. Everything trivial falls away and all that remains is a stark decision—- to choose Love or fear.

Initially, the fear may have been so overwhelming that many of us may have faltered as we searched for some relief. As students of A Course in Miracles we may have finally recalled that we have been given so much incredible Guidance to be used in all situations, especially where there is lack of love.

And so, we recall this Guidance that is simple and yet the resulting peace is so complete and total. With these words, our Soul is quieted and our strength returns:

Know first that this is fear.
Fear arises from lack of love.
The only remedy for lack of love is perfect love.
Perfect love is the Atonement.
ACIM OE T.2.83-85

What has been so inspiring to witness, during this Pandemic, is how many people have truly made this choice for Love and then have given away the gifts they have received.

We witness as one man creates a YouTube Channel with “Some Good News – SGN” filled with inspiring video stories of people coming together to support one another, whether it’s a ballet troupe weaving together a choreographed production, each in their own homes yet each joining in the movement and the music; or a community in a locked-down city, spending the evening on their window sills and porches toasting each other and singing together; or hundreds of thousands of parishioners joining in a rosary, each in their own homes, yet joining with one voice.

The strength and power in realizing our One Self has become palpable.

  I am One Self, united with my Creator,
 At one with every aspect of creation,
 And limitless in power and in peace.
ACIM OE Lesson 95

Now, in this Holy Instant, our true faith enters. We may have, in the past and during most of our lives, put all of our faith in what our limited minds have told us; and we may have put our faith in what mankind has been listening to for centuries. Thus, the journey has been a perpetuation of the same illusions, the same dissatisfactions, and the same heartaches.

Today, we have reached a turning point.

The undeniable call to choose love has gone out in these stark times of loss. Can you feel it? It’s a Call sent to every one of us with no one excluded.

“I cannot choose for you, but I can help you make your own right choice. ‘Many are called, but few are chosen’ should read, ‘All are called, but few choose to listen. Therefore, they do not choose right.’ The ‘chosen ones’ are merely those who choose right sooner. This is the real meaning of the celestial speed-up.” ACIM OE T.3.49

Perhaps we are getting that chance now, in this Pandemic, to choose right sooner.

Now we are realizing that every Holy Instant gives us a chance to choose again. It is a call to shift our awareness from the unreal [limitation and fear] toward the Real [Unlimited Creativity and Love] and it is this very shift that is the Miracle.

Of course, we can resist the call to awaken to the New and thus fall victim to what we fear; but when we do this, we will always feel exhausted, depressed, and defeated.

We have all been called to choose Love as our Guide, and yet, we do not have to do this alone. We have help. How tender and loving are Elder Brother’s words as He whispers in our hearts:

“In peace we will continue in His way and trust all things to Him. In confidence we wait His answers, as we ask His will in everything we do. He loves God’s Son as we would love him, and He teaches us how to behold him through His eyes and love him as He does. You do not walk alone. God’s angels hover close and all about. His Love surrounds you, and of this be sure: that I will never leave you comfortless.” ACIM OE Workbook Epilogue par 6

And so, it is.

There is No Judgment

There Is No Judgment

There is No Judgment

Based on the teachings of
A Course in Miracles – Original Edition
published by COURSE IN MIRACLES SOCIETY

The idea that there is No Judgment will be challenging for anyone to accept.

The immediate reaction will most likely be in the defense of judgment as if judgments were not only a given but a requirement in this world.

Our minds will say: Of course, there is judgment. There has to be judgment. How could there not be in this world of choice?  Some choices are judged as bad and some are judged as good, but there must be judgment in order to navigate this world and fix it.

And yet, do we really?

Is there another way of looking at it?

A Course in Miracles-Original Edition tells us that there is.

Recently, a message was delivered to me as if it were from somewhere outside of me and yet it also felt as if it were from deep within. I was just walking from one room to the next and I ‘heard’ the words, “There is no judgment”. The words were tied to the thought and the words were the thought. Yet, what accompanied that thought was a tremendous feeling of release.

I have always judged myself harshly. Every second must be filled with me doing something worthy. All my activities, every second, must qualify as useful. There must be no slouching, no misuse of time.

It is fine and good to want to be productive, but when there is a sense of judgment and guilt from seemingly being unproductive, that’s where the mark is missed.

And now I hear: “There is no judgment.

Those words wash over me like a forgiveness shower. If guilt is missing the mark [i.e. sin], then forgiveness is restoring that which will never change: my sinlessness, my guiltlessness, my immortality, my Eternal Soul. That is what I am feeling.

Forgiveness, … is still and quietly does nothing. It offends no aspect of reality nor seeks to twist it to appearance that it likes. It merely looks and waits and judges not. He who would not forgive must judge, for he must justify his failure to forgive. But he who would forgive himself must learn to welcome truth exactly as it is.

ACIM OE Workbook PII #4. What is Forgiveness

In those moments of truly realizing There is no Judgment, I was free of self-condemnation and knew, to the very depths of my being, that all is well; that there is nothing outside of me anywhere that judges me. There is nothing that needs to change or be different. Everything is as it should be and “All things work together for good.” ACIM OE TX.4.69

I knew that I could now integrate the following Lesson:

Lesson 268: Let all things be exactly as they are.

Let me not be Your critic, Lord, today, and judge against You.
Let me not attempt to interfere
with Your creation and distort it into sickly forms.
Let me be willing to withdraw my wishes
from its unity and thus to let it be as You created it.
For thus will I be able, too, to recognize
my Self as You created me. In Love was I created,
and in Love will I remain forever.
What can frighten me when I let all things be exactly as they are?
W2:268.1

Yet, how could this be? How could I let all things be exactly as they are? Should I let poverty, sexual abuse, murder, rape, theft, and war be “exactly as they are?”

When I ask these questions within, I realize that A Course in Miracles – Original Edition is offering a radical, new way of looking at this world. As the Course tells us: The fruits of any curriculum should bring peace. If they do not, then go the other way.

Perhaps to know deeply the meaning of this Lesson, we must seek within, past all our prior learning, past all our surface, limiting thoughts that tell us that we are separate, that we were born, and that we will die.

Can we let all those thoughts go for just a few moments and sit quietly, doing nothing,  allowing the meaning of this Lesson to filter through us from the part of our Minds that has never left our Source?

From the study of ACIM OE, I am realizing that letting something be exactly as it is, is not condoning it, but it is seeing past the distortion of what is Real. Letting something be as it is, is letting it be “as You [Love] created it” and not as I am perceiving it. [see quote above]

This is also what Forgiveness means to me from my study of A Course in Miracles-Original Edition [ACIM OE]. For me, forgiveness means to see everything as God [Love] would see it, which means to see what is Real about everything. I’ve learned that ONLY LOVE IS REAL and if something changes, it was not Love. What is Real about Who I AM will never change, for “Love Created me like Itself.” ACIM Lesson 67

Thus, to let things be exactly as they are is to know that:

What is Real is the Love in the midst of hate.
What is Real is the Light in the midst of darkness.
What is Real is that which is Changeless in the midst of change.

When I know there is no judgment and see myself and everyone and everything with the eyes of love, I need do nothing for I have accepted the Atonement.

Lesson 337: My sinlessness protects me from all harm.

My sinlessness ensures me perfect peace, eternal safety, everlasting love,freedom forever from all thought of loss, complete deliverance from suffering.And only happiness can be my state, for only happiness is given me.What must I do to know all this is mine? I must accept Atonement for myselfand nothing more. God has already done all things that need be done.And I must learn I need do nothing of myself, for I need but accept my Self,my sinlessness, created for me, now already mine, to feel God’s Loveprotecting me from harm, to understand my Father loves His Son,to know I am the Son my Father loves.W2:337.1

My worthiness is guaranteed by God and All is well!

Now I know “I need do nothing of myself, for I need but accept my Self, my sinlessness…”

There is no judgment …for there is only God’s Love.

And so it is.

The Purpose Given You

The Purpose Given You

The Purpose Given You

by Rev Reja Joy Green*

I love it when synchronicities happen in my life. They seem to be sending me a hint that there is an unseen connection uniting me with all of life. The message seems to be that I am not alone and that we are all in this thing together—that all of life is united in this magnificent journey of BEING, which does not end when we leave our bodies. Recently, as I was thinking about these synchronicities, I was instantly reminded of a New York Times best-selling book I discovered recently by Laura Lynne Jackson called, “The Light Between Us.”

While listening to that audiobook, narrated by the author, who—by the way—does a spectacular job at bringing forth this blessed concept of Unity and Connectedness, I was struck by how much of this message is a reflection of what we are learning in A Course in Miracles-Original Edition.

From loving minds there is no separation. And every thought in one brings gladness to the other because they are the same. Joy is unlimited because each shining thought of love extends its being and creates more of itself. There is no difference anywhere in it, for every thought is like itself.” ACIM OE TX.22.VII.64

What better time than now, in this time of racial strife, economic insecurity, climate change, and the general sense of malaise and hopelessness that all of these issues bring to our lives, to have a message come through that resonates so deeply within our being—There is another way! We are connected. There is a purpose here. 

In A Course in Miracles-Original Edition, we are presented with the amazing idea that there are no accidents and that we are responsible for what occurs in our world. These are powerful teachings that take a bit of courage to open up to. There is a degree of acceptance and willingness and surrender that must be there before we can truly open our hearts to the loving messages in this Course, which will inevitably precipitate the healing that naturally follows.

“Miracles are natural. When they do not occur, something has gone wrong.”
ACIM OE TX.1.I.6

And so what is the Miracle? Wouldn’t it be a miracle to experience a shift in what we thought was so? What if we were to be shown that we had been totally mistaken in how we were seeing the world and that there is a way at looking at the world that brings peace to us and to everyone who comes in contact with us. What if all our misperceptions were hiding the Real World from our sight and that the miracle is what would shine them away?

If we are in despair at our current situation in this life, has the time come when we will have the courage to make a shift away from how we have always thought and toward being willing to look again, and this time to look with a Divine Vision from deep within?

In our daily ACIM OE TEXT Conference Call Study Group the other day, we read the following:

“A simple question yet remains and needs an answer. Do you like what you have made—a world of murder and attack through which you thread your timid way through constant dangers, alone and frightened, hoping at most that death will wait a little longer before it overtakes you and you disappear? You made this up. It is a picture of what you think you are, of how you see yourself. A murderer is frightened, and those who kill fear death. All these are but the fearful thoughts of those who would adjust themselves to a world made fearful by their adjustments. And they look out in sorrow from what is sad within and see the sadness there.” ACIM OE TX.20.IV.19

“They look out in sorrow from what is sad within,” but what if they looked out in joy from what is joyful within?  What if we came with empty hands to a power deep within us that could show us what is truly so. What if we have been deceived by fear into seeing a world of separation when the world of connectedness and love has always been there, waiting to be seen.

You may have heard the story of the man outside of a town being asked by newcomers what the town was like. He told them that they’d better keep close watch of their valuables and make sure to always lock their doors. He even told them of all the times he had been robbed and cheated and suggested to them that they might want to think twice about living there.

And yet the newcomers move on to another man further down the road and ask him the same question to which his face brightens with joy. He tells them that he has experienced a torrent of generosity, kindness, and compassion from every single townsperson he has met since coming there. He tells them that they will love this town and that they may never want to leave it.

We see only what we believe deep within. When our beliefs align with Love, there is a healing of this seeming separate world that can and will take place and begins within each of us. That’s what A Course in Miracles is guiding us towards.

“There is no fear in perfect love because it knows no sin and it must look on others as on itself. Looking with charity within, what can it fear without? The innocent see safety, and the pure in heart see God within His Son and look unto the Son to lead them to the Father. And where else would they go but where they will to be? Each of you now will lead the other to the Father as surely as God created His Son holy and kept him so. In your brother is the light of God’s eternal promise of your immortality. See him as sinless, and there can be no fear in you.” ACIM OE TX.20.IV.27

This illustration of seeing what we believe is also related to the Course concept of responsibility. A Course in Miracles-OE tells us that we “are not victims of the world” we see, that there is “another way at looking at the world,” that “I will forgive and this will disappear.” It gently guides us away from our misperceptions and toward a new way of being and of seeing in which we use our inner guidance to show us the Love that is truly there.

“I am responsible for what I see. I chose the feelings I experience, and I decided on the goal I would achieve. And everything that seems to happen to me, I asked for and received as I had asked.” ACIM OE TX.21.III.15

What an amazingly powerful statement, and it is one in which we see a bit of bad news as well as good news.

What I see around me, as my life, is exactly what I have “asked for and received as I had asked” and in most cases, that’s bad news. When I look around me I see the seeming inhumanity of man toward each other, the state of the environment, or the chaos in our governments. Or, I could just look closer to my home and see my personal struggles and challenges in my family or with my health.

Yet, this need not be. While I may very well be aware of the bad news, the good news is—I am the one who can change it. My thoughts are not idle. My thoughts are the most powerful force in the Universe.

Now we might ask: What will it take to bring a miracle—a shift in this world that we inhabit today? How can we feel the Unity that lies beneath the duality and that connects us all?

A Course in Miracles teaches us that it will be the thoughts and feelings and the goals that we choose that will bring the shift. The miracle comes with the forgiveness we bring to the world that is seemingly outside of us. In the last pages of the last chapter in the Text of A Course of Miracles titled CHOOSE ONCE AGAIN, we find these loving words:

“You are as God created you, and so is every living thing you look upon, regardless of the images you see. What you behold as sickness and as pain, as weakness and as suffering and loss is but temptation to perceive yourself defenseless and in hell. Yield not to this, and you will see all pain in every form wherever it occurs but disappear as mists before the sun. A miracle has come to heal God’s Son and close the door upon his dreams of weakness, opening the way to his salvation and release. Choose once again what you would have him be, remembering that every choice you make establishes your own identity as you will see it and believe it is.”  ACIM OE TX31.VIII.92

If forgiveness means to see only that which is real in each and everyone and everything, then with that gift, we fulfill our purpose in releasing the world from what we thought it did, knowing our forgiveness makes no exceptions. There is absolutely no one excluded for anything they have done or said. We see them as they truly are: whole and complete, sinless and guiltless, even though they may, for a while, continue to deny this truth themselves.

Thus, we are learning that the way to end the cycle of hate and fear is to choose Love, knowing that this is why we have come.

Now we choose again to see the synchronicities that surround us—to let ourselves be shown by the Love within that we are all One and that we are still as Love created us.

This is the purpose given you. Think not that your forgiveness of each other serves but you two alone. For the whole new world rests in the hands of every two who enter here to rest. And as they rest, the face of Christ shines on them, and they remember the laws of God, forgetting all the rest and yearning only to have His laws perfectly fulfilled in them and all their brothers.” ACIM OE TX.20.V.34

And so, it is.

The Script is Written

THE SCRIPT IS WRITTEN
Jeshua/Jesus thru Brent Haskell

AUDIO – The Script is Written

 

Greetings to you this day. I am Jeshua. And I have come, as always, to discuss with you A Course in Miracles. You have been struggling, as it were, for some time, about some words, which I have placed in A Course in Miracles. And those words are these; “The script is written.” (See ACIM Workbook Lesson 158)

And what I have told you with those words is that for everything that seems to happen here, it has already been done. The time when each of you shall come to understand the truth of who you are is set. It is in the script. It is just as if it has been placed at a certain frame on the film that you play out, that you call your life. And only when you arrive at that frame and that moment, that seeming moment in your time, will you truly understand.

And I have said to you that time only seems to go in one direction. Time only seems to go in one direction. And all of this can present such a dilemma for you, can it not?

Here, in your earthly life, what can you do? I have told you that always when you come to the point in time when you understand, when you come to your moment of awakening, you will realize in that same moment the truth that – There was nothing I needed to do.

But your question for today goes even beyond that. For indeed, is there anything that you can do at all? If you are impatient to know the peace of God, can you, in your time, speed up the process? Can you be diligent and make the moment come sooner in your time? Does the time of your study, the time of your contemplation, the time of your simply being silent, does any of that make any difference at all? Or will you simply one day awaken and say, “Aha, I see.”?

Now I have told you, have I not, so many times, that this world never happened. And I have told you that this world is but illusion. It is not real. And do you know one of the aspects of reality itself – reality is imbued with creative power. That which is real is of God. You are of God. Because you, the reality of what you are – you are real. But this world, ah – `tis not real.

And what does that include? That includes your bodies. They are not real. That includes the aspects you see of space and time – the skies and the heavens – the earth about you the flowers and the trees – none of it is real. `Tis but a figment of imagination, if you will.

And this is part of what I have told you, but is so difficult for you. The thoughts you think you think are not real. The thoughts of which you are aware are not real thoughts. And that means this, as I have told you – the thoughts you think you think, the thoughts of the brain, if you will, the thoughts of space and time, are not real. And as such, hear me well. They have no creative power.

So can you, of your thinking, of your planning, of your struggling, of your doing things here, change anything, do anything at all? And the answer must be no. The answer must be no.

This is the fundamental struggle that you – insofar as you believe yourself to be your ego – this is the fundamental struggle that you must deal with. And I have spoken to you and called it the authority problem.

As ego, as a conscious thinking being, here, who seems to have life and seems to have choice, and would seem to perhaps have power associated with your choices, is there anything that you can do? And the answer is – no.

Consider for a moment – what if that were not so? What if you, in your conscious thinking, could in fact change your mind and see your life or your world change? Then that would demand that your thinking, the thoughts of this world, had creative power. Suppose that you could, with your body, do acts, do things that could change your world. That would mean that bodies had within them creative power. And that would mean that the thoughts of consciousness, the body itself, would be of God. That which has creative power must be God Itself, just as you – in your reality, have creative power and are God.So how do you deal with this issue, if I tell you, as I truly am telling you, that nothing you do in your life makes any difference at all? And one of your great passions, one of your great concerns in being loving and pursuing the spiritual path – for most of you – for so many of you – is that you say, “I want to make a difference. I want, when my life is over, to be able to stand tall and say, `I made a difference. I changed my world.'” And do you know what this is? Truly that is but the voice of the ego crying out not to die.

Ask yourself this – if this world is not real, if it is but illusion – if it has no effect of any kind in all of eternity – then why would it matter whether your life here makes a difference? That too is but illusion. So if you would be a student of A Course in Miracles, if you would be a teacher of A Course in Miracles, if you would be a writer of books, the sharer of wisdom through lectures or speaking engagements, or workshops – does any of that matter? And the answer truly is – it does not.

Such harsh words are they not? For have I not just told you that all of your struggling, everything you would do to seek to accomplish good in your life, matters not at all. DO you recall that I said in A Course in Miracles, “Your only goal is to accept the Atonement for yourself.”?

And do you recall the words I spoke in A Course in Miracles, that experience cannot be given directly? The only thing you have to offer is the vision of Christ – the vision of the Holy Spirit.

And vision itself – hear me well – has no power to change. Vision is but experience that you have within yourself when you – in a moment – see this world differently, when you forgive this world. And that, as I have told you, is your only function – to forgive this world – to forgive yourself – to forgive your brother – to forgive me and to forgive God Itself.

Have you heard these words at the core of your being? You forgive through vision. You forgive not through action, not though doing, not through trying, above all not through studying and struggling and dialoguing, if you will.

So what does that mean? What it means is – you must hear these words I speak this day, and these words which you will find in A Course in Miracles as you look for them – it means that you must take those words and experience them. For if you do not, or until you do, you will not know the peace of God. Hear me well.

So if your life matters not – ah, did I say that? Did I say your life matters not? Or did I say that there is nothing you can do to change anything? There is a difference. There truly is nothing you can do to bring about sooner the moment of your awakening. And if you feel you are awakened already – and wish to give the gift to your brothers and sisters, there is nothing you can do whatsoever to hasten the moment of their awakening as well. The script is written. The time is set.

Time but seems to flow in one direction. What does that mean? You believe in cause and effect being separate. That ultimately is the belief in your time. For you believe that an action, a thought, a word, a deed, now, will result in a change. The word “will” speaks of the future, do you hear? You believe that a word, an action, a thought, now, can effect what you see as the future. And it is absolutely not so.

I have told you that every single moment of your time is totally independent of every other moment of your time. That is what it means to say that cause and effect are not separate. In the absence of time, the Son of God imagines whatever he will, and in that instant, it is done. There cannot be delay. Delay is but illusion.

And so all of your struggling to become is but your desire to worship time, and to hallow what you would call the future, the result. And it is the grandest delusion of the ego to believe that what you call the future is the result of the past. And if it is then, you can further delude yourself into believing that what you did in one moment affected the next And thus you believe that you have creative power.

The nature of God, the fact that time itself does not exist, makes it impossible that such could be the case. In this moment, you either know the peace of God or you do not. And the next moment is the same. The next is the same. The next is the same. The next is the same. And creative spirit, which sits at the core of your being always knows the peace of God.

Did you, Mind, cease creating for a moment to make up a world of illusion? Hear me well. To create is to be. And to cease to create would be to cease to be. Mind never sleeps. It is creating every moment. That I have told you. And what is it that Mind creates – nothing but love. For that is all there is.

This world, I tell you – and this fact lies at the core of your forgiveness – this world, every aspect of it, is love being expressed. And in your forgiveness – when you awaken – in your moment of awakening, you will know that to be true. And that shall be the forgiveness that you seek. And in your forgiveness, you shall find the peace of God.

Can you, from within the framework of the ego, from within consciousness, can you rationalize, can you discuss and discover, can you debate and find, can you figure out how it is that this world is nothing but love? Hear me well. Absolutely not. It is the framework of this world which imprisons you. It is that framework which you use to form that which you call ego, that which you believe yourself to be, but which you are not. From within the domain of the ego, you cannot discover, you cannot find vision, the vision of the Holy Spirit, the vision of your One Self, the vision of Christ, the vision of God. They are all the same.

How then can you find the peace of God? Do you remember that I have told you – you have but one choice in this world – to which voice shall I listen? One choice – to which voice shall you choose to listen? I have told you that there is nothing you can do to hasten the moment of yours or your brother’s awakening. Your goal is to forgive. Your only goal is to accept the Atonement for yourself, which is exactly the same thing.

There truly is nothing you can do. For if it were not so, this world would be imbued with creative power, and would be real. And that which you pretend to see would be God Itself. And the universe would be a place of fear and horror. And it is not so. Hear me well.

How do you choose to listen to the Voice for God? How do you choose to hear the Holy Spirit? For when you do make that choice, then what will fill your awareness is the vision of Christ. For truly then, your One Self, the Holy Spirit, I, God Itself, were He to choose to look upon this world, would see with vision, and would see nothing but love.

How do you choose to do that? There is but one way. For the choice you have of which voice you shall listen is not really a choice at all. So even in the sense of choosing which voice you shall hear, there is still nothing you can do. Hear me well. For this I have told you before.

The Holy Spirit, the Voice of God, the bringer of the vision of Christ, speaks with the quietest of whispers you could ever imagine. The truth is this, my brothers – you hear the Voice of God in your silence. The only choice you have is the choice to be still, to cease the workings of your conscious mind. For when you do not think, you are free of the busyness of the world. You are no longer burning with a passion to dialogue or debate, or study or think or to use your thoughts to become. When you are free of that, then in your silence there comes a whisper, the Voice of the Holy Spirit.

And as you sit in your silence for more than a moment, then there will come exactly this, a vision. And arising out of your silence, you will be given a new world. But nothing will have changed at all. You will be given a new world because, as you look upon your world and experience this world here – beyond the domain of the ego – you will come face to face with the vision of Christ. And everything you see will be the Love of God. And everything you experience will be the Love of God.

And what will you do in your life? You will celebrate. For the fullness of the awareness of that Love will make it impossible for you not to do so. Hear me well this day. That is the measure of your forgiveness. As you look upon your world, do you see nothing but love? As you look upon your world do you see nothing but love in action? As you look upon your world, are you filled with joy and wonder at it all? And as you look upon your world are you filled with a total peace that desires to change nothing? For why would anyone desire to change the perfect Love of God? Do you see?

Then what do you do in your life, if all your doing matters not? And this I have told you as well. How do you know if you are happy? Do you contemplate and debate, or do you simply know at the core of your being? How do you know if you are filled with love? Do you debate the meaning of love? Do you define love and write books about love or do you simply experience that which it is? And experience, as I have told you, is beyond thought – is beyond your thinking mind – is beyond the domain of the ego.

So what can you do then? You simply experience your life. If you would do that, you do not plan one moment in the future, but simply experience your life. And do you remember those words? I spoke them even two thousand years ago, and yet again and again in so many times and places. And yet again in A Course in Miracles. If you would simply experience your life, what will you do? And the answer is so extremely simple that you perhaps have never heard it. If you would simply experience your life, you will follow the path of your own joy.

Do you think I was joking when I said, “God’s will for you is perfect happiness”? and when I gave you the affirmation of “God’s peace and joy are mine”? Not at all. What if your joy does not lead you to study A Course in Miracles? What should you do? Follow the path of your own joy. What if your joy does not lead you to writing books and going to workshops or seminars or dialoguing with your brethren about the nature of truth? What should you do? You should follow the pathway of your own joy. I promise you, if you are not following the pathway of your joy, you are nowhere near, at all, the discovery of the peace of God.

Can you speed up your time? No, indeed. Can you be joyful in your life? Yes, you can. What happens if you truly become silent and open your being, and open your heart – if you will – to the presence of the Holy Spirit – to my presence – to the Voice of God? What happens if you do that? Time itself collapses. I have told you that as well. “Miracles collapse time”. Those are not new words to you, are they? The only place that time can collapse is in your silence. The only activity that can possibly bring you to the point of time collapsing are those that bring you joy.

And what is the measure of your joy? I have told you this also many times. If you believe you are experiencing joy, then ask yourself – “Can anything of this world threaten my joy?” And if the answer is “yes”, then it is not the joy of God. It is still the ego clamoring and crying out to be heard, and trying to convince someone, somewhere, that it exists – which of course it does not.

In the moment of your silence, in the moment of your joy, in the moment of the collapse of time – then all of time becomes the same instant. Do you hear? And in that instant – in that instant of the forever of your time – as it collapses into a single moment, the time of your awakening is there. And I have, have I not, called that moment the Holy Instant – the moment of the miracle. And that is exactly what it is – the moment of the miracle – the moment in which time collapses.

But remember, you cannot make it happen. You cannot figure it out. You cannot dialogue and discover what it is. You can never, ever, ever, give it as an experience to someone else. The only thing you can do is enter into your own silence, wherein you listen and are still, and wherein you hear the Voice of God, and wherein you gain the vision of Christ, and wherein you see a new world – not a world that has been changed, but the same world seen anew.

And in that moment you will no longer see a world of illusion. Illusion will pass away, including the illusion of time. And in the moment of forever, you shall awaken. And in your awakening, you will have within you the vision of Christ.

Can you force it upon your brothers? No, indeed. But as you hold that vision, then it is present for anyone and everyone – throughout all of space and time, past, present and future – to experience and to celebrate. And in your own moment of experiencing that vision, truly as I have told you, your silence and the joy to be found therein, make you, without effort, the savior of the world. And your life, moment upon moment, shall become blessed in ways beyond what you can comprehend – even though the moments of your space and time have changed not one iota.

My blessings upon you all. That is all.

END

A Course in Miracles and Our Unseen Guest

by Rev Reja Joy Green*

There are so many adventures awaiting us in this multidimensional life that we are living and yet they await our acknowledgment and our desire to investigate them before they open up and reveal their treasures.

Such were the opportunities given to both Helen Schucman and William Thetford [Bill], scribe & co-scribe of A Course in Miracles [1972], respectively, and to “Darby and Joan”, authors of Our Unseen Guest [1920].

Each of these tomes was written, in a manner, by an “Unseen Guest,” whose identity became evident in due time. And each of these tomes was birthed through a collaborative effort between two people who had dedicated themselves to the process.

In fact, these two relationships were integral to the success of the messages’ arrival as is witnessed in many examples of the transmission of information from “beyond the veil” as it is called.

In the case of A Course in Miracles, Helen Schucman, who had previously experienced a strong degree of intuition as she was growing up, along with waking dreams and visions, was seemingly just applying for a job with William Thetford, when she told him, “I am the person you are looking for.” It seems a mutual friend, who had known that Bill was looking to hire a research assistant, had told Helen to say just those words, although Bill was to say later that those words of introduction from Helen would come to have a greater meaning.

Helen also had an interesting experience. She was to tell Bill, at some later point, that during the interview, even though he couldn’t guarantee the salary, didn’t know what the duties were going to be, or if she would even have an office, she was compelled to accept the position. The “Voice,” which she initially thought was her intuition, had said to her very clearly, “Oh…there he is. He’s the man you’re supposed to help!”

Darby and Joan, authors of “Our Unseen Guest,” already had a close relationship as husband and wife, yet after stumbling upon the wonders of the Ouija-Board and later upon the trance channeling of Joan without the Board, they had found that they each had an integral part in the process. The “Unseen Guest” referred to Joan as the RECEIVER and to Darby, her husband, as the CONCEIVER and taught them that each position was integral to the process.

The treasure that these adventures revealed was the metaphysical wisdom gleaned about the plane of existence we find ourselves in now and those eternal realms beyond the veil. Just the act of “receiving” information, unknown to all parties, was a demonstration itself that there is more to this life than we realize. In other words, there truly is Life After Life, as Raymond Moody had written about.

What was this “Voice” that Helen heard? What was the manner in which it came about, and what did it say? Helen had sensed for a period of time that she was a “channel” and that something was trying to get through although the channel was clogged. Then, after several lucid dreams and some very vivid visions, Helen heard this Inner Voice say: “This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.”

As Helen describes it herself: “I did not understand the calm but impressive authority with which the Voice dictated. At several points in the writing, the Voice Itself speaks in no uncertain terms— JESUS. My own reactions to these references, which literally stunned me at that time, have decreased in intensity and are now at a level of wonder and acceptance.”

For Darby and Joan, the journey began on an unfamiliar Ouija-board they had just purchased, with these words spelled out: “For you two I have a message, a revelation,” and so it began. When asked, who was there, the name “Stephen” came through and the description of himself as an American soldier who had been killed in service to the Allied forces in WWI. Eventually, enough pertinent, verifiable information was received that both Darby and Joan were convinced that Stephen had actually lived and had died and was not merely their subconscious mind acting out upon the board. Now they could get on with his “revelation.”

One of the similarities between these two forays into the unknown was the interesting fact that with A Course in Miracles the material could stop in mid-sentence when Helen had to attend a meeting and could be picked up where it had left off, after Helen’s meeting was over and she could return to it.

Helen described the experience of hearing the Inner Voice in this way: “The Voice made no sound, but seemed to be giving me a kind of rapid, inner dictation, which could be interrupted at any time and later picked up again. I never knew when I started a sentence how it would end, and the ideas came so quickly I had trouble keeping up with them.”

For Darby and Joan, here is how it was described at a time when they were still using the Ouija-Board:

“Now and then some long sentence would complete itself only to find us forgetful of its first half. Entire clauses would be missing. We would cudgel our brains to remember them and when we failed, the tripod [of the Ouija-board], without hesitation, would repeat the sentence.” P.143

Another similarity is in the fluid manner in which the material was received as if it were already perfect and just needed to be recorded. Helen’s normal writing was filled with crossed-out and rearranged words, while the transcription of the Inner Dictation was straightforward and precise.

Also, Helen scribed a large part of A Course in Miracles in IAMBIC PENTAMETER, which is described as five couplets per line with two syllables each. The first is soft, and the second syllable is stronger. A line of iambic pentameter sounds like this: |Da-DUM |Da-DUM |Da-DUM |Da-DUM |Da-DUM |.

The same phenomenon appeared in “The Unseen Guest” when a famous poet, who had passed on a year or so before, came through with a new poem. Darby explained, “When Joan wrote poems it was ‘born of much travail,’ yet the Ouija-board sonnet, ‘sprang’ into spontaneous being.’” P.160

So much wisdom was gleaned from both glorious adventures that the scribes knew their lives would never be the same. Besides the fact as previously noted, that the communications themselves demonstrated Life After Life, the exquisite messages of eternal life and eternal love were breath-taking.

At one point, the material that came through Helen in A Course in Miracles was more like music than mere words and was even titled, A Song Remembered. “Listen and see if you remember an ancient song you knew so long ago and held more dear than any melody you taught yourself to cherish since.” ACIM CH 21 II 9

And from the board the idea that a symphony is made of individual performers who “never cease, during the performance of the symphony, to exist as individuals, that instead they will become more individualistic than ever. Yet, not in spite of that accentuation of individuality, but because of it, the orchestra becomes for the period of the number, a whole.” “The music carries the performers far into…a world ever more realized in oneness, ever more perfect in adjustment of the individual to the whole.”

Of all the wondrous ideas presented as if from an ancient memory, one idea seemed to stand out to grant a sense of hope in both these tomes, and that is the ultimate goal of our journey.

From A Course in Miracles it is given:

“You are altogether irreplaceable in the Mind of God. No one else can fill your part of It, and while you leave your part of It empty, your eternal place merely waits for your return.” ACIM OE CH 9 VII 57

And from our dear Unseen Guest, the valiant Soldier of the Spirit:

“Are not the ‘each,’ or part, …. inseparably bound together?” P.204 “I am a part of the whole, yet the whole is I. In you, in me, is all that is, consciousness. Yet we are but parts of the greater whole.”

And so it is.

Thy Kingdom Come

Holy Mother Father God

You are my Source—the Love in which I live.

There is no greater power. This Power sustains me, strengthens me, and shows me the way.

Love is the journeyman. Love is the journey, and Love is the destination. There is only Love.

I had forgotten my way and thought I lived in separation, desolation, and hopelessness.

I thought I was abandoned in a strange land where there were seemingly others who were afraid and lashed out, protecting who they thought they were and what they thought belonged to them.

I thought I was abandoned and so I was afraid and clung to who I thought I was, what I thought I owned— thinking I alone could keep myself safe from harm.

Yet, You did not abandon me, nor my brother. It is I who have abandoned my Identity as Your Child—-sinless, guiltless, and at One with all my brothers and with YOU, my One SELF.

It is my Prayer today to see myself at home within the Temple of my most Holy Mind and join with You, the Love that Created me.

From this I AM, will I extend the Light and Love to shine on all who are lost themselves in darkness and in hate.

For only Light will dispel the dark and only Love will dispel the hate.

Now do I remember—I AM Your Child, healed and whole, sinless, and guiltless, at One with You and all my brothers.

And now I see this gentle awakening dawning upon all of Your Children, as one light shines upon another in remembrance of its own light, and then upon another and another until the Sonship joins in the Glory of Its awakening to the One Self, —to the One Love at the Center of Its One heart.

And, so it is.

AMEN

The Eternal Now

THE ETERNAL NOW: IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE!

Be Still and Know

Graphic by Deposit Photos

Article by Rev Reja Janaki Joy Green*
~*~*~*~*~*~

Regardless of whether the body appears to be getting out of bed in the morning,
going home at night, or sitting reading a book, it is unavoidably now.
The fact that it is always now never can be changed.
It is impossible to make it be not-now.

Dziuban, Peter Francis Consciousness Is All: Now Life Is Completely New (p. 114).
Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc. Kindle Edition.


When we were younger, my twin sister used to say that being with me is like looking at the sun. She was implying, in a not too veiled way, that I am an intense person and sometimes it is uncomfortable to be with me. I took it as a compliment.

I suppose I recalled the memory of this observation just ‘now,’ because I am venturing to write about a subject that is, for the most part, ignored—much like the fact that we are all going to die some day.

To visit the NOW might be like looking at the sun for some people. If we are going along, living our lives based on an imagined past and an inevitable future, the Present Moment of NOW might be viewed as something that would only gum up the system.

In fact, it stops the system.

Thus, when an idea challenges our reality, there is fear. We may not know how we got to this life, but we have developed ‘by now’ a way of coping with where we find ourselves. We have mitigated the fear of the unknown by building beliefs about what is so. These are the beliefs that are sacrosanct and not to be questioned, because to question these beliefs is to question our sanity.

However, you are reading these words. Something peeked your interest and brought you here. There are no accidents. When a person comes into our lives, or a book, a song, a movie—we have the opportunity to see it as a gift from our Soul, and pay attention.

There are no accidents in salvation. Those who are to meet will meet because together they have the potential for a holy relationship. They are ready for each other.

~ A Course in Miracles Original Edition [ACIM OE M], Manual for Teachers #3. Par 1

Every decision we have ever made has brought us to this MOMENT.

For me, right NOW, the moment is a beautiful March morning on my loft in which I have time to type and share my thoughts.

If you stop a moment to take notice, right NOW, you too can describe the MOMENT for you.

Yet it is always and forever, NOW. And that’s a beautiful thought. It doesn’t have to produce fear. There is strife only when we hold onto anything. In the letting go and accepting what is, there is PEACE.

In the ACIM Study Group I attend, which has been meeting every Sunday for several years here in Omaha, Nebraska, there is a gentleman who reminds us often of something he learned from his experience. He tells us the key to Peace, or to any difficult situation, is ‘Surrender’. This gentle person had a shift in consciousness and experienced himself as Pure Conscious Awareness. He ‘knows’ It is what HE IS NOW, what I AM NOW and what YOU ARE NOW. It never changes. When we surrender to what is, there is PEACE.

Be still and KNOW—God. [Love, Peace, Joy]

Years ago, many of us took the Werner Erhard Seminar Training [E.S.T.] and I often recall that the bottom line was, after two weekends of sitting in a hotel ballroom on a fold-up chair with very little food or sleep — “What IS, IS. And what isn’t, isn’t.”

How profound is that! Perhaps we could go further and ask ourselves these questions:  Are we aware of this moment? Is the moment NOW? Is the moment HERE? Can we change this moment of NOW to not be the moment, to not be NOW, or to not be here?

Which brings us to the main focus of this essay: It’s HERE – It’s HERE.

As little girls, my twin sister and I had devised a game at the same time, yet unbeknownst to each other. When one of us shared with the other what we were doing, we were both stunned. We had each felt that the experience was our own discovery.

The process was to stare at an object, any object, and say to ourselves, “It’s here. It’s here.”

Soon, we were acutely aware of the moment of time in which we were looking at the object. The object faded from our attention, which was now placed in the present moment. Our full attention was on Presence, i.e. Pure Conscious Awareness.

And this was fine, for a while. It was fine until we tried to stop the game, and discovered “it’s here”. Ok. Well, that is all good, but now I want to get back to other things, and “it’s here.” Cool. I get it. Time to return. “It’s here.” Yikes. This is a tiny bit scary. I can’t seem to stop this presence. “It’s here.” But won’t it stop at some point? Won’t I find the end? “it’s here.” Isn’t there a place outside of Presence, outside of the NOW? “It’s here.” But now it seems like a dream I can’t wake up from. “It’s here.” When I do seem to wake up, I’m still here! It’s beginning to feel like a light show, or a kaleidoscope that keeps opening and opening and opening and never, ever stops! “It’s here.” There is no end! There will never, ever be an end! It is eternal! I have touched the face of infinity! The NOW has never started and it will never end. “It’s here.” Let me out!!

Even though it took quite a bit of words to describe this process, the experience itself took less than a minute. Time was ‘there’, as usual, with one minute seemingly coming after the other, and then it wasn’t. Or rather, it was there all at once. It was there AND not there. It was All AND Nothing. It was the Alpha and Omega.

Eventually, at some point, my sister and I had to force ourselves to forget what we were doing. By ‘now’, we were terrified. We were like a caged animal, trapped in a never-ending dream. With each attempt to escape, we were faced with another instance of the Moment, which we resisted. And it was this resistance that caused our pain and suffering.

Instead, we could have asked ourselves if there were actually something to resist or fear? Could we surrender to the truth of this experience? Could we accept what Is, Is, and what isn’t, isn’t? Could we open to the knowing of Who We Are as Pure Conscious Awareness, which will never die, and extends Itself forever?

[Lesson 67] Love created me like Itself.

I am in the likeness of my Creator. I cannot suffer, I cannot experience loss, and I cannot die. I am not a body. I would recognize my reality today. I will worship no idols nor raise my own self-concepts to replace my Self. I am in the likeness of my Creator. Love created me like Itself.

~ ACIM OE Workbook Lesson 84 Review of Lesson 67

What could this ‘knowing’ mean for us?

Could it mean that nothing we have ever done in ‘time’ has changed Who We Truly Are?
We give all the meaning our experience has. What if we found the courage to experience the essence of Pure Conscious Awareness? What would that be like? How would it inform our perceptions and our experience here in ‘time’?

What actually gives meaning to our experience if not the ground of BEING, which is Pure Awareness?

Only when I align my True Self with Pure Conscious Awareness am I able to open to the idea — I AM the Perfect, Sinless, Child of God.

This is Forgiveness [opening to that which is REAL, here and now]. This is Salvation [opening to that which is REAL, here and now]. This is the Atonement [opening to that which is REAL, here and now].

There is no other path. And so we celebrate what IS—Love IS! God IS! We ARE!

As we learn in A Course in Miracles:

51 The journey to God is merely the reawakening of the knowledge of where you are always and what you are forever. It is a journey without distance to a goal that has never changed. Truth can only be experienced. It cannot be described, and it cannot be explained. I can make you aware of the conditions of truth, but the experience is of God. Together we can meet its conditions, but truth will dawn upon you of itself.”

~ ACIM OE Text CH 8 VI

In this beautiful MOMENT of NOW, shall we open to Who We Are and will forever BE. Can we open to knowing that these words I am typing are from the very center of my Being, which is your Being as well?

There is ONE Extension of the One Creator and Thou Art That!

And so it is!
AMEN ♥

Vital Message of Forgiveness

VITAL MESSAGE OF FORGIVENESS

Message of Forgiveness

Graphic by ©Deposit Photos

Article by Rev Reja Janaki Joy Green*
~*~*~*~*~*~
AUDIO of ARTICLE [mp3] MP3gold

Recently I’ve been asked, by many students of A Course in Miracles, for my response to  a recent mass email from the author, Gary Renard, with the title: “A Vital Message From Gary Renard About The Editing Of A Course In Miracles

My friends were curious to see how I would respond, especially since I am one of the co-founders of Course in Miracles Society [CIMS] and publisher of A Course in Miracles – Original Edition [ACIM OE], both of which were among the targets of the email from Gary.

It seems that the purpose of Gary Renard’s email was to respond to the remarks about the Original Edition and about the Foundation for Inner Peace[FIP] made by Rev. Tony Ponticello, at the recent 2015 ACIM Conference in New York City.

A friend had forwarded to me a second email she had received from Gary Renard with the subject, “Join Gary in England, and Save Money Before June 1st”, and wrote:

“Joy,

When you go to his website, he has a link that’s called:  Gary Renard on the Urtext
I think it is basically a copy of the mass-email.

I have such mixed feelings about someone who so poorly represents the Course… by purporting to love the Course and be the person who will show us how we all can come to know our True Selves and live on this Earth.

The catch-22 of being required to see Gary as someone calling out for Love without actually telling him he is ‘in error’ is really mind-blowing!

It is a strong lesson indeed!”

How to respond? How to answer this conundrum for myself? And yet to respond to this seeming attack feels like nothing less than a call to JOY! In fact, I told my husband that it feels as if it were related to the very reason for my Soul journey, actually for Our journey as the SonShip, in this illusory time and space.

If not now, when, oh Holy Child of God?

Along those lines, it also feels as though it is an opportunity to demonstrate the theme of the past Conference, which was: “The holiest of all the spots on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a PRESENT LOVE.”  ACIM OE CH 26, X 82

Just now, I was preparing the Early Mailing of the Daily Lessons and Text Readings for May 18th and reviewing the TEXT selection of the day for an opening QUOTE, when the choice made itself known. Many of the paragraphs caught my attention, as they usually do, and yet this one brought tears to my eyes.

27Now has no meaning to the ego. The present merely reminds it of past hurts, and it reacts to the present as if it were the past. The ego cannot tolerate release from the past, and although the past is no more, the ego tries to preserve its image by responding as if it were present. Thus it dictates reactions to those you meet now from a past reference point, obscuring their present reality. In effect, if you follow the ego’s dictates, you will react to your brothers as though they were someone else, and this will surely prevent you from perceiving them as they are. And you will receive messages from them out of your own past because, by making it real in the present, you are forbidding yourself to let it go. You thus deny yourself the message of release that every brother offers you now. ACIM OE CH 12 IV

Why did I choose this paragraph? In fact, why did I choose this entire section, “Healing and Time”? Why was this the message that tugged at my heart in relation to the controversial comments by Rev Tony Ponticello and Gary Renard?

I believe that the drama of this controversy, and the messages in this section of the text, epitomize the message of A Course in Miracles. It demonstrates a challenge and a decision that I think we are ready for. Perhaps that is why Rev Tony Ponticello took the bold move to say words, he admitted later, would ‘Rile up the crowd’ and get a discussion going. Perhaps “All things are Lessons God would have me learn.” Lesson 193

The paragraph begins with,

26 “Now has no meaning to the ego. The present merely reminds it of past hurts, and it reacts to the present as if it were the past.”  ACIM OE CH 12 IV

Why does the Now have no meaning to the limited thought system? What does the Now hold that makes it of no use to the ego, except to remind us of the past? Could it be that it holds— “NOTHING?” And yet could it also be that it also holds —“EVERYTHING?!” The Now is empty of the past and the future, and yet it holds the essence of our BEING. In this chapter, we read:

30 “It is in the reality of now, without past or future, that the beginning of the appreciation of eternity lies. For only now is here, and it presents the opportunities for the holy encounters in which salvation can be found.” ACIM OE CH 12 IV

The Now “presents the opportunities for the holy encounters in which Salvation can be found.” That’s why it is important to our Souls and demeaned by the ego. It is in the Now that we have the opportunity to release our illusion of separation and find our salvation.

If the ego is a thought of fear, born of separation and time, where is it, once the light of Truth and Love shine within the ‘Present Moment of Now’? There is no wonder the ego gives the Now no meaning. In the Now, if we don’t drag-in the past, the ego dissolves back into the nothingness from which it came. That’s exactly why the ego is attached to the past.

26 “The ego has a very strange notion of time, and it is with this notion that your questioning might well begin. The ego invests heavily in the past and in the end believes that the past is the only aspect of time that is meaningful.” ACIM OE CH 12 IV

In the ego thought system, who needs the present when we can dredge up the past and make it continuous with the future?

26 “For the ego uses the present only as a brief transition to the future, in which it brings the past to the future by interpreting the present in past terms.” ACIM OE CH 12 IV

I remember clearly the E.S.T. training I took three and a half decades ago, in which the trainer wrapped his foot under the rung of a chair and walked across the stage, dragging the chair. He was demonstrating how we hold onto the past and drag it with us into the present.

Thus, when we condemn a brother for doing anything, we are holding him to the ‘past’, whether it is something that occurred thirty years ago or last week.

And yet the message of the Course is that we are ONE SELF, united with our creator. To condemn a ‘part’ is to perpetuate the separation by seeing our brother as separate, and to see only the past is to lose sight of the only time there is. The ego uses the past to avoid the present at all costs.

When the ego emphasizes our guilt, it is making certain that the future will repeat the past, so we can avoid the present. How crazy is that!

26 “You will remember that we said its emphasis on guilt enables it to ensure its continuity by making the future like the past and thus avoiding the present. By the notion of paying for the past in the future, the past becomes the determiner of the future, making them continuous without an intervening present.” ACIM OE CH 12 IV

What then are we making REAL for ourselves, when we recreate scenarios of the past, which weren’t real then and are equally unreal, in this moment of Now?

27 “In effect, if you follow the ego’s dictates, you will react to your brothers as though they were someone else, and this will surely prevent you from perceiving them as they are. And you will receive messages from them out of your own past because, by making it real in the present, you are forbidding yourself to let it go. You thus deny yourself the message of release that every brother offers you now.” ACIM OE CH 12 IV

In the beginning of paragraph 27 we learn,

27The ego cannot tolerate release from the past, and although the past is no more, the ego tries to preserve its image by responding as if it were present. Thus it dictates reactions to those you meet now from a past reference point, obscuring their present reality.” ACIM OE CH 12 IV

At the 2015 ACIM Conference, there was a moment when Gary Renard and his wife were at the water fountain at the same time my husband and I were there. Gary seemed to recognize us and quickly grabbed his wife’s hand and began to run down the hall.

30“The Holy Spirit teaches that you always meet yourself and the encounter is holy because you are.”
“The ego teaches that you always encounter your past, and because your dreams were not holy, the future cannot be, and the present is without meaning.”  ACIM OE CH 12 IV

That moment was a chance for a holy encounter, and yet we missed our chance.

Later, in one of the presentations, the participants were asked to hug one another, and take three deep breaths. We were then asked to look into one another’s eyes, while getting in touch with who we are and who our brother is. The person behind me had Gary Renard as a partner and when the Presenter asked for volunteers to share their experience, she raised her hand. She shared how their bodies made a tent as they hugged and how they were unbalanced and almost fell over as they teetered. Later, at the end of the presentation, I turned around and found myself facing Gary Renard. I was aware of the temptation to perceive conflict and aware of the previous person’s sharing and even so, in that instant, there was only Love. We hugged closely and both of us melted, as I whispered, “I love you, Gary.”

Love is the only answer, as He tells us,

90A little knowledge is an all-encompassing thing. If you are grateful to each other, you are grateful to God for what He created. Through your gratitude, you can come to know each other, and one moment of real recognition makes all men your brothers because they are all of your Father. Love does not conquer all things, but it does set all things right.” ACIM OE CH 4 VII

Now I know why the last line of that original paragraph27 made me cry.  Gary has offered me the message of release. He has given me the chance to release the past and open to the Now, in which “we can come to know each other.” He is my brother, because he is of our Father, and what is left of our past is but a blessing. ♥

Finding My ACIM Family

My Experience of Finding

My ACIM Teleconference Family

By Rhett Billings*

Graphic by © Deposit Photos

For many years, the almost overwhelming love and wisdom contained within the pages of A COURSE IN MIRACLES were more than I could take in. I sensed there was something there I REALLY wanted, but I resisted it strongly, without knowing why. Periodically, I’d pick it up and put it down again, like so many others have… until now!

It was as if studying it on my own was not only difficult, but perhaps… lonely, or that part of me KNEW it needed to be studied and practiced in another way. Even my weekly ACIM class wasn’t quite locking it in for me. Although I eagerly looked forward to and deeply enjoyed my class each week, it always went by so fast, leaving me wanting and hungry for a whole week. Eventually, I became keenly aware of an almost desperate need for more. I loved studying under Harrison Blackmond’s leadership and with my classmates, but I seldom studied between classes. Studying alone left me with an empty feeling. Maybe one meeting per week just wasn’t enough for me.

Then, my landscape changed and I’m so very thankful it did! My weekly Course instructor, Harrison, sensed I was longing for more, so he invited me to join him in the mornings on two daily ACIM teleconference calls.

Hearing the Course’s writings read by the many voices I met there did something miraculous for me. My loneliness gave way and I felt safe to share in the comfort of our common longing to know our true Selves again. Their different voices, filled with love and passion for the writings, brought out the Light in such engaging and delightful ways! After we read, we are invited to freely share what came up for us. The rich and deep wisdom, born from living experience within each member, brings the Truths and Principles to LIFE, which unleashes and captures even more treasure for me!

One of these calls, facilitated by a fun and spirited minister named Rev. Pamela Whitman, from New Jersey, focuses on studying the Workbook for Students. Into our daily study and practice sessions, she wisely builds in some meditation time, as the Author suggests. It’s astonishing how beneficial this group silence is for me. There’s a trust and reverence that begins to build. Rev. Pamela’s opening prayer and centering is AWESOME and her closing prayer just makes me want to jump up and go practice my forgiveness training in the theater of the “real” world. She is amazing! She also allows two volunteers from our group to facilitate on Thursdays and Sundays, something I love to do. To me, she is a wise and loving Truth Warrior who inspires me to stretch out, open wide, and bite off more of my forgiveness potential!

The other call was wonderfully facilitated in 2014 by Carl Lammers and focused on the Text. I find his soothing, deep, rich voice to be so comforting, encouraging me to expand. He has mastered the art of leadership in a particular way, making me feel so safe and secure. To aid in the digestion of the material, we read each paragraph twice, slowly and deliberately, with a different reader on each to extract more “juice” from the grape. All of us have voiced our deep appreciation to Carl for this method of study, which he borrowed from a group out in the Oregon/Washington area. Carl and his wife currently live in Lexington, Kentucky.

Both calls encourage use of “A Course in Miracles Original Edition” [ACIM OE], published by Course in Miracles Society [CIMS]. This edition is the unedited manuscript, as it was completed by the scribes Helen Schucman and William Thetford.

We are blessed to also have Lee Flynn, a CIMS member, on both calls daily. Lee contributed his efforts to the invalidation of the copyright, which was inadvertently instrumental in bringing the scribe’s original shorthand notes to the world.

Within days of “meeting” my group members on the phone, I felt like I had known them forever. I felt so loved and accepted, marveling at how they could identify a caller dropping in with so few words. Even a little chuckle or a, “Good morning, family”, is enough to identify Carla, for example. Many of us also enjoy a Skype and Facebook group forum for further communication.

Before finding this group, I was not aware that the rich and useful nuggets of living Truth contained within the pages of this MIRACULOUS book just begged to be experienced daily within the embrace of a loving, supportive community. I feel that being unable to see each other’s body is actually an advantage, as it robs my ego’s eyes of yet another avenue to judge. The Course teaches that judging others is how we separate ourselves from God.

As Harrison says, “In order to really GET what the Course is aimed at achieving (undoing our attachment to the ego’s thought system), we have to be bathing our minds in this material 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s the only way it will actually take hold.”

I believe Harrison is right. This world is a tough place to “BE REAL”, and I need a daily dose of love from this community to keep my strength and dedication fortified. I cannot believe how rapidly my spiritual muscle and vision are growing. My ability to forgive myself and others is like nothing I ever dreamed possible, not to mention my ability to love all of my brothers and sisters in the world, despite their seeming shortcomings. It is flat-out astonishing to me!

Taking in and digesting the Course now is effortless and I can hardly wait for the start of each day to reunite and go digging some more with my Truth-seeking spiritual family. In fact, starting my day without it now seems almost incomprehensible. I just LOVE listening to the recordings later in the day, as I always seem to pick up more yummy stuff I missed on the live call.

The profound concepts in the writings, sometimes couched in complex sentence structure, can be a little challenging at times, leaving me scratching my head. That’s when this community comes in so handy. All I have to do is voice my confusion and someone makes it so simple for me to understand. There are several members who have been teaching and studying it for many, many years. They are like ministers of Light to me and, when the “light bulb” comes on, I am frequently filled with so much excitement and gratitude that I can’t help but cry, so I do… and I let it roll. It’s very cleansing for me and the group seems to appreciate it.

Since my junior year of high school (I’m 50 now), I’ve been passionately interested in self-help and have enjoyed years of deep therapeutic work, but I could never afford group therapy (in the world’s view, the ultimate powerhouse of psycho-therapeutic healing). To me, these conference calls are almost like group therapy, only better. I am bathing my mind in the Truth, and this causes what I’ve been hiding in the dark to become exposed and surface. If I then choose to ask the Holy Spirit to show me who I really am and find the courage to share my insights with my Course family, I am engaging in the purification process and removing these obstacles to my awareness of Love’s Presence. SHARING, I now believe, is the most essential ingredient in healing. Perhaps this is one of the reasons group therapy is so effective.

By sharing ourselves with others we come to: sense the heat of Love aching to be released from within our crusty, defensive shells; contribute to the growth of others; feel and rekindle the blessed awareness of our Oneness with the community of the Whole; and, ultimately, return to Love by remembering Who we really Are—extensions of the pure Love of God.

For me, tears and laughter are like the 1-2 punch when it comes to deep, lasting healing. They are a common experience for us during the calls. AND IT’S FREE!!! Well… almost. I do choose to make a weekly tax deductible donation [love offering] to support Rev. Pamela in their life-enhancing ministry.

I will forever be grateful to Harrison for leading me to these TOTALLY LIFE-CHANGING Conference Calls, and for his AMAZING leadership. Were it not for the compelling demonstration of his own work and healing through the Course, and through the love and joy in his eyes and laughter, I very much doubt I would have found this treasure chest of fulfillment!

If you, or someone you know, feels frustrated or lonely when studying A Course In Miracles, please consider my invitation to step into the Light provided by this welcoming, enlightening community. The Holy Spirit heard me calling for more… more love… more clarity… for a better way. Ask and you shall receive!

Please feel free to drop in and visit our community anytime. We will welcome you to our circle of Love and Truth when and if the time becomes right for you!

Namaste

This holy instant would I give to You. Be You in charge. For I would follow You, certain that Your direction gives me peace. 

I know You Love these words. Now is incentive Yours to live them. Be You in charge. Step back and let God lead You in the way: the way to follow. For I would follow You, certain that Your direction gives me peace. You are the Way, the Truth, the Life, leading Us to the experience of Heaven.

1 And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. For Our minds are joined, and this is Heaven. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. Gifts unlimited, flowing forth from God. He is in charge by my request. I have given up control, and that feels so very awesome! All I need do is ask, and then listen. And He will hear and answer me because He speaks for God, my Father, and His holy Son. Belovèd Brother, and Holy Spirit.

Our Final Lessons

1Our final lessons will be left as free of words as possible. So We move into feeling, gracefully. Now We look to allow Ourselves to have Divine Intuition. I say “We” because I’m always with You. We use them but at the beginning of our practicing and only to remind us that we seek to go beyond them, to communication of the Knowing. Let us turn to Him Who leads the way and makes our footsteps sure. To Him we leave these lessons, as to Him we give our lives henceforth, No more do We choose to think as egos. For we would not return again to the belief in sin, which made the world seem ugly and unsafe, attacking and destroying, dangerous in all its ways, and treacherous beyond the hope of trust and the escape from pain. To see ‘sin’ is to think as an ego.

2 His is the only way to find the peace that God has given us. No way will We think; instead We’ll listen. It is His way that everyone must travel in the end, because it is this ending God Himself appointed. In the dream of time, it seems to be far off. And yet in truth, it is already here, already serving us as gracious guidance in the way to go. We know it could be now, if We would choose, for nothing stops Us. Let us together follow in this way that truth points out to us. And let us be the leaders of our many brothers who are seeking for the way but find it not. Yet it is right here for those Who would see.

3 And to this purpose let us dedicate our minds, directing all our thoughts to serve the function of salvation. We have slept so long; it’s time to Waken. Unto us the aim is given to forgive the world. It is forgiveness that opens wide Our eyes to see again. It is the goal that God has given us. Not just goal but Gift. It is His ending to the dream we seek, and not our own. We know not how to stop the dream all on Our own. God must help.For all that we forgive we will not fail to recognize as part of God Himself. What must You ultimately forgive but Yourself for dreaming. With that forgiveness You waken to God. And thus His memory is given back completely and complete. How wonderful to be Awake again!

4 It is our function to remember Him on earth, that We might waken, as it is given us to be His own completion in reality. So let us not forget our goal is shared. We are One with God.For it is that remembrance which contains the memory of God and points the way to Him and to the Heaven of His peace. So long forgotten in the hell of dreaming, yet still within Our minds is Our relationship with God. We can remember! And shall we not forgive our brother who can offer this to us? That and the little willingness is all it takes to start the Journey Home. Will You now take those first steps? Nothing can stop You. He is the way, the truth, and life that show the way to us. Without forgiveness We cannot hear Him, nor see how to go. With forgiveness all things are clearly seen. In him resides salvation, offered us through our forgiveness given unto him. Let Us now give it. True generosity of mind – not things – is but forgiveness.

5 We will not end this year without the gift our Father promised to His holy Son. How many years have come to end for You, without acceptance of these words: giving the forgiveness asked? We are forgiven now. And in the giving, We are gifted too: gifted with freedom. And we are saved from all the wrath we thought belonged to God and found it was a dream. (Albeit nightmare.) We are restored to sanity in which we understand that anger is insane, attack is mad, and vengeance merely foolish fantasy. Yet so loved by and, thus, very important to the ego. We have been saved from wrath because we learned we were mistaken. No point in being  angry at mistakes. They need correction. Nothing more than that. And is a Father angry at His Son because he failed to understand the truth? Of course not, for He will gladly teach Him again and again, patiently, until He now understands. This is how Love is; take heed and be It.

6 We come in honesty to Him and say we did not understand – Our minds were elsewhere; yet now they are back – and ask Him to help us to learn His lessons through the Voice of His own Teacher. Would He hurt His Son? Or would He rush to answer him and say, “This is My Son, and all I have is his”?1 Truly You are His Son to Whom He gladly gives the Kingdom. Yes! You just understood: the Kingdom is the Consciousness of God and not a thing.  Be certain He will answer thus, for these are His own Words to you. And more than that can no one ever have, for in these Words is all there is and all that there will be throughout all time and in eternity. Welcome Home My dearly belovèd One. Here is Your Kingdom.

[Thank you Dear Brother]

Peace be to me, the holy Son of god. 

Can I believe this statement to be true? I can, when I give it to My Brother! Let Me do that now!

Peace to my brother, who is one with me.

It is but Oneness which I had forgotten in nightmares of the separation.

Let all the world be blessed with peace through us, through Our wakening.

1 Father, it is Your peace that I would give, receiving it of You. I’m willing now to give up conflict, all based in being ‘right’. I am Your Son, forever just as You created me, for the Great Rays remain forever still and undisturbed within me. God’s Qualities are forever Mine for They could not be lost, and They were ignored. Love I am, and Love I do remain throughout Eternity. This is true of every Ray: They’re My Substance, for I am not a body, but embodiment of Good! I would reach to them in silence and in certainty, – right within Myself – for nowhere else can certainty be found. Peace be to me and peace to all the world. In holiness were we created, and in holiness do we remain. For Our Holiness is but synonym to Our happiness. That is amazing! Your Son is like to You in perfect sinlessness, – how beautiful is My Holy Brother; as lovely as I – and with this thought we gladly say “Amen.”

God’s answer is some form of peace. Peace is the Source of all real power. Peace: a serenity which comes from understanding God is All.

All pain is healed; all misery replaced with joy. This is true freedom: for mourning has been changed to joyful dance.

All prison doors are opened. They were self-imposed by-products of dreams.

And all sin is understood as merely a mistake. God Be-ing All and Be-ing Good, all sin must be delusion. Good alone is Real.

1 Father, today we will forgive Your world – Our strange misperception of it, skewed by ego vision – and let creation be Your own. We have misunderstood all things, completely distorted Reality. But we have not made sinners of the holy Sons of God. Our dreams and delusions can’t change the Real. What You created sinless so abides forever and forever, despite what We see. Such are we: completely untouched by Our dreams which do hide Reality, yet cannot change It. And we rejoice to learn that we have made mistakes which have no real effects on us. We can change Our minds! God’s Son is Holy, and this Holiness includes Our Brother. Sin is impossible, and on this fact forgiveness rests upon a certain base more solid than the shadow world we see. We can – at any moment – trade it for God’s Reality. Help us forgive, for we would be redeemed. Help us forgive, for we would be at peace. Our Brother’s Holiness is one with Ours.

No call to God can be unheard nor left unanswered. 

Even calls that sound like –really are meant to be – expletives! Pure profanity. Love can feel Your need, and respond to it. And of this I can be sure—His answer is the one I really want. For God is the real solution, no matter what the problem is or claims to be.

 

1 You Who remember – dear Holy Spirit – what I really am alone remember what I really want, to re-find Heaven. You speak for God, and so You speak for me. That is Your Function given You by God to help all Dreamers. And what You give me comes from God Himself. For never would He – could He – forsake Me. Your Voice, my Father, then is mine as well, and all I want is what You offer me, in just the form You chose that it be mine. Only Your answer can make Me happy; return to Me but My Reality. Let me remember all I do not know, and let my voice be still, remembering. The memory of being loved by You returning to Me; I hold fast to It, despite the vicious attacks of ego. But let me not forget Your Love and care, keeping Your promise to Your Son in my awareness always. Let me not forget myself – ego ‘creation’ – is nothing, but my Self  – Good God Be-ing Me – is all. True Eternity, not gained by dying but by Living Love.

Truth – Love’s Reality – answers every call we make to God, – even silent screams are clearly heard and cared about by Him; He would not have You suffer, no not even for an instant – responding first with miracles, and then returning unto us to be itself.

1 Forgiveness, truth’s reflection, tells me how to offer miracles and thus escape the prison house in which I think I live. What is this forgiveness, and why do I harp so endlessly upon it? It is Your path to freedom. I hear You Brother! Your holy Son is pointed out to me, first in my brother, then in me. To appreciate Myself, I must first appreciate My Brother. ‘That is harsh!’ opines the ego! Your Voice instructs me patiently to hear Your Word – first must I listen – and give as I receive; then must I do it. And as I look upon Your Son today, with less than Your Love, I hear Your Voice instructing me to find the way to You as You appointed that the way shall be: “Behold his sinlessness, and be you healed.” Although I may resist at first, yet I would have the healing.

Sickness is but another name for sin.

It comes not from God, but emanates from some type of lovelessness, a lack of care for other Brothers. Neighbors which You have not loved as Yourself.

Healing is but another Name for God. For healing is born from whole and Holy.
The miracle is thus a call to Him.
For He is Source of all things Good and Real. Grateful for them is gratitude for God.

1 Father, You promised You would never fail to answer any call Your Son might make to You. Hear His blessèd words: Philippians 4:19 – “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Could We ask for more? His promise is truly all-inclusive! How loved is the Son! It does not matter where he is, what seems to be his problem, nor what he believes he has become. He is Your Son, and You will answer him. No matter what the problem, Good always overrides the dream. The miracle reflects Your Love, and thus it answers him. It makes plain Your holy ever-Presence. Your Name replaces every thought of sin, and who is sinless cannot suffer pain. God Be-ing perfect synonym to Good.

There is no end to all the peace and joy and all the miracles that I will give when I accept God’s word. Why not today? 

In other words, dear Father-Mother, why do I continue to delay, to put it off again for still another day?

Procrastination is a very foolish game to play, especially when it is done every day.

1 Why should I wait, my Father, for the joy You promised me? Can doing “my own thing” today really be that appealing? Is the ego truly that convincing? “No!” must be the answer; thus I must be totally insane! For You will keep Your Word You gave Your Son in exile. You Love Me so much! Why do I ignore You and keep listening to the ego? I am sure my treasure waits for me, and I need but reach out my hand to find it. Even now my fingers touch it. It is very close. I know how sweet Life is when joined with You, belovèd Father! I need not wait an instant more to be at peace forever. I have had more than enough of discord! It is You I choose and my identity – My Reality! – along with You. Your Son would be Himself and know You as his Father and Creator and his Love. And I would choose You! Why don’t I do it?

Help Me give up being ‘son’ to ego!

We stand together, Christ and i, in peace and certainty of purpose. 

He is My Teacher, forever Guiding Me to be just as holy as is He.

And in Him is His Creator, as He is in me.

His loving message is that I, too, am God’s belovèd One, as are all Others.

Each Brother and each Sister is forever precious to Our Father-Mother God. No-one is left out; no-one forgotten. This message is for every One of You!

 

1 My oneness with the Christ establishes me as Your Son, beyond the reach of time and wholly free of every law but Yours. This statement is not arrogance, but grateful adoration. I have no self except the Christ in me. Not bound by human personality; a.k.a. ego. I have no purpose but His own, as Christ does Guide Me. And He is like His Father. The same Loving Presence, then, must be Me, for Christ would have to be All-inclusive.Thus must I be one with You – belovèd Mother – as well as Him – belovèd Father. For who is Christ except Your Son as You created Him? And what am I except the Christ in me? For most assuredly You never, ever, made an ego. Thus must We always be the Son of God, despite Our foolish dreams from which We always can Awaken.

And not just all My body, but My entire mind, as well; each thought must be Love.

1 Father, I give all that is mine today to Christ to use in any way that best will serve the purpose that I share with Him. To do this I must pay close attention. I am quite willing to do as I’m told; My God, the ‘tell-er’. Nothing is mine alone, for He and I have joined in purpose. How sweet to have a Friend so close at hand. One Who’s always right!

Judgment and love are opposites. You will have to choose one or the other. From one come all the sorrows of the world. For how can You know the Truth about Yourself if You deny it for Your Brother? But from the other comes the peace of God Himself.  When You see Your Brother with the eyes of Love, You, too, look as beautiful as S/He.

1 Forgiveness looks on sinlessness alone and judges not. This is My lesson. To do this I must understand that only Good is Real. The evil that I seem to see is but illusion incepted by My loveless thought. It’s easier to judge an Other than live Love Myself. Easier but not really satisfying. Through this I come to You. Jesus, Holy Spirit, I need constant help to stay on track! Judgment – to heed ego lies about My Others – will bind my eyes and make me blind. I will walk through life in total darkness. Yet love, reflected in forgiveness here, – and in every single situation – reminds me You have given me a way to find Your peace again. In Reality We All Love each Other very dearly. I am redeemed when I elect to follow in this way. There is no other! You have not left me comfortless. You have always been right at My side, closer to Me than My heart, You are my Mind. I have within me both the memory of You and One Who leads me to it. Father, I would hear Your Voice and find Your peace today. You never left; I just stopped listening. I begin again. For I would love my own Identity – oh so very lovely Holy Spirit – and find in Him – Who is really Me – the memory – and ever-presence of You.

My sinless brother is my guide to peace.

This is quite simple for You to understand. Accepting it is quite a different story.

My sinful brother is my guide to pain.

Does this seem unfair to You? That You must need forgive Him? It is unfairer still to see Him sinful.

And which I choose to see I will behold. Choice is always Mine.

 

1 Who is my brother but Your holy Son? You Love Him just as much as You Love Me. And if I see him sinful, I proclaim myself a sinner, – if He is a sinner, so am I for He and I are One – not a Son of God, alone and friendless in a fearful world. Yet this perception is a choice I make and can relinquish. Although it seems impossible to do. I can also see my brother sinless as Your holy Son. And with this choice I see my sinlessness, my everlasting Comforter and Friend beside me, and my way secure and clear. If He is holy, I am holy too. Choose, then, for me, my Father, through Your Voice, the Holy Spirit, exemplified in Your belovèd Son. For He alone gives judgment in Your Name. And what is His judgment but “very good.”1

Workbook PART II

What am I?

For so long now I have considered Myself to be nothing but a ‘mortal’, something born but to die, part of some peculiar plan of God’s which makes no sense to Me. Yet have I gone along with it, participating endlessly in ‘birth’ and ‘death’ as if I were willing slave to ego.  Now I understand that I have a choice!

I can stop the merry-go-round (which isn’t very merry!) and I can get off now. What took Me so long to understand this but being oh so willingly hypnotized by ego!

 1 I am God’s Son in Reality, complete and healed and whole, shining in the reflection of His Love. I am Love’s Presence! That’s Reality! In me is His creation sanctified and guaranteed eternal life. In me is love perfected, fear impossible, and joy established without opposite. I hear these words, quite theoretically, and get excited; yet I don’t really understand; how this can be, possibly; for My mind is still run by the ego. I am the holy home of God Himself. I am the Heaven where His Love resides. What a wonderful idea, dearest Brother! I’ve always thought Heaven was a place for Me to go, not a place to BE! I am His holy sinlessness itself, for in my purity abides His own. This new idea is so amazing! No wonder I must watch every thought and action, for they must be in line with Love. For Love is the Substance of all Heaven: its superstructure.

 

2 Our use for words is almost over now. The alternative is in the Knowing of Communion; no ceremony this but Our sharing of One Holy Mind. An experience of Oneness now unknown, deliberately long-forgotten in eons of dream. Yet in the final days of this one year we gave to God together, you and I, we found a single purpose that we shared, as You were willing. And thus you joined with me. So what I am are you as well. For when We’re joining, You step into One Mind with Me, ending the separation. The truth of what we are is not for words to speak of nor describe. It is just to be, which comes naturally; disallow the ego’s interference. Its survival rests on obfuscation! (a word quite synonym to ego when it is in action) Yet we can realize our function here, and words can speak of this and teach it, too, if we exemplify the words in us. In other words, live the Love Your preaching. Studying the Course does not make You holy. You must love It enough to live It.

 

3 We are the bringers of salvation. This is no small thing, but an important mission for the world, the world of Dreamers. We accept our part as saviors of the world, which through our joint forgiveness is redeemed. If the word forgiveness makes You cringe, for sin seems overwhelming, remember this: what You call ‘the world’ is nothing but a dream, albeit extremely convincing. God is greater than the dream, despite how very real it seems. And this, our gift, is therefore given us. We look on everyone as brothers and perceive all things as kindly and as good. Don’t be exasperated at what seems impossible to You! With God all these things are not just possible but certain! We do not seek a function that is past the gates of Heaven. Let Us arrive there first! And then You may be sure all things will be added for You. You need not be the star of the show to have a crucial part. Knowledge will return when we have done our part. We are concerned only with giving welcome to the truth. Open up Your minds; the Truth will gladly enter and bear fruit; Your mind be filled with happiness and good.

 

4 Ours are the eyes through which Christ’s vision sees a world redeemed from every thought of sin. Be willing Sister. Ours are the ears that hear the Voice of God proclaim the world as sinless. Be willing, Brother. Ours the minds which join together as we bless the world. How sweet is this experience of giving to Our Brothers. Our Gifts are not ambivalent, but wholly Good for They do come direct from God; no interference. And from the oneness that we have attained – as a part of God – we call to all our brothers, offering Our Love, asking them to share our peace and consummate our joy. Even those We thought were total strangers, and those of different colour, suddenly are as dear to Us as Our nursing babe. How did this happen? How was I transformed?

By Your Love, Sister; by Your Love, Brother! Love is the conduit for all miracles, both large and small. Let Yourselves be filled with Joy, Love spilling forth, overflowing, washing clean the world of painful judgments, illuminating Good where ere it goes!

5 We are the holy messengers of God – Yes! Really! Truly! – who speak for Him, and carrying His Word to everyone whom He has sent to us, we learn that it is written on our hearts. How did this happen? Only through willingness is this conceived. Willingness to both see and be different than ego. This is not a chore, but a privilege! And thus our minds are changed about the aim for which we came and which we seek to serve. We bring glad tidings to the Son of God, who thought he suffered. His days seemed filled with large and small crucifixions.  Now is he redeemed. And as he sees the gate of Heaven stand open before him, he will enter in and disappear into the Heart of God. The Real You won’t be gone; only the ego. And with the ego goes the dream. Yet You’ve already moved to Your new state of Consciousness: the Holy Love of God.

[Thank you Dear Brother]

Miracles mirror God’s eternal Love – turning bad to good, misery to peace, deep despair to hope; bringing Light to those who sit in darkness. To offer them is to remember Him, and through His memory to save the world.

How do You give miracles? By being willing to forgive. For One who has spent eons being thought by unforgiving ego, the willingness to Love instead of hate is indeed miraculous. Now do You see the majesty of forgiveness?

1 What we forgive becomes a part of us as we perceive ourselves. The Son of God incorporates all things within himself as You created him. Your memory depends on his forgiveness. What he is, is unaffected by his thoughts. But what he looks upon is their direct result. Your ego thought  incepts Your perception, obfuscating Your experience of God’s Reality. Therefore, my Father, I would turn to You that I might step out of dreams into God’s great Eternity. Only Your memory will set me free, freeing Me from dreams, releasing Me into Eternity. If I don’t forgive, this will not happen, for unforgiveness won’t let Love appear. And only my forgiveness –opening My heart, letting Love flow free – teaches me to let Your memory return to me – You are Love Itself – and give it to the world in thankfulness. For It must be shared so it stays alive.

 

2 And as we gather miracles from Him, – Our belovèd One – we will indeed be grateful. For as we remember Him, Who is the holy Source – only Source – of His belovèd Son – His Son will be restored to us in the Reality of Love, where We have always been; just obfuscated by the dream.

Today I let Christ’s vision look upon All things for me and judge them not, but give each one a miracle of love instead.

As I let Christ be My eyes for Me, with His eyes of Love, He sees what I can’t see. Suddenly I feel God’s Love surround Me.

1 So would I liberate all things I see and give to them the freedom that I seek. My vision does not see Love like Christ’s does. So must I ask Him to see as He does. For thus do I obey the law of love and give what I would find and make my own. Would I find kindness? Then let Me give it. It will be given me because I have chosen it as the gift I want to give. Father, Your gifts are mine, and very holy. If I would be loved, then let Me first Love. Each one that I accept gives me a miracle to give. And giving as I would receive, I learn Your healing miracles belong to me. For Love is synonymous with healing.

 

2 Our Father knows our needs. Always it is mind that needs first healing. He gives us grace to meet them all.  And so we trust in Him to send us miracles to bless the world and heal our minds as we return to Him. In other words, God meets Our every need with greatest blessings.

I have no cause for anger or for fear, for You surround me. — I am Part of You, and, therefore, must be holy too. And in every need that I perceive, Your grace suffices me.  How I Love those words, and what they imply: that things don’t meet Our real need that only grace can supply.

 

1 Father, let me remember You are here, and I am not alone. That companionship comes not from bodies, but thoughts in harmony with each other.. Surrounding me is everlasting Love, which stretches on beyond Infinity. I have no cause for anything except the perfect peace and joy I share with You. You are My Relationship, not the world. What need have I for anger or for fear? Since Your Universal Good is right here. Surrounding me is perfect safety. For there can be no spot where You are not. Can I be afraid when Your eternal promise goes with me? Surrounding me is perfect sinlessness. What can I fear when You created me in holiness as perfect as Your own? All that there can be is Good everywhere. Belovèd Mother, You’re Omnipresent.

 

2 God’s grace suffices us in everything that He would have us do. And only that we choose to be our will as well as His. In other words, We have no need but God.

Anger must come from judgment. Judgment is the weapon I would use against myself to keep all miracles away from me.

Oh! This seems so hard to do; the dream looks very real to Me. Yet does its specious ‘reality’ bring only pain to Me. The only way to Waken is to understand I’m dreaming!

 

1 Father, I want what goes against my will and do not want what is my will to have. For I have been long befuddled by the ego, believing its claim to be Me. Pure stupidity on the part of Me. Straighten my mind, my Father. It is sick. Why would I dream nightmares when Reality is heavenly? It’s foolish of Me. But You have offered freedom, and I choose to claim Your gift today. Can painful eons really be erased? All things are certain to be healed by God. I am so grateful! And so I give all judgment to the One You gave to me to judge for me. Thanks be to God for the Holy Spirit. He sees what I behold, and yet He knows the truth. He can heal mind. He looks on pain, and yet He understands it is not real, and in His understanding it is healed. So painless, easy. He gives the miracles my dreams would hide from my awareness. And they bring Me to an Awakening. Let Him judge today. I do not know my will, but He is sure it is Your own. And He will speak for me, and call Your miracle to come to me. For the Holy Spirit really is Me.

 

2 Listen today. Be very still and hear the gentle Voice for God assuring you that He has judged you as the Son He loves. There is no other judgment to be made. How Good is Our God!

Today the peace of God envelops me, – His Love brings overwhelming happiness –
And I forget all things except His Love.

1 Father, I wake today with miracles correcting my perception of all things. I feel You in My mind, full with Your words of encouragement, Your outpouring Love.  And so begins the day I share with You as I will share eternity, for time has stepped aside today. I will do nothing on My own for I hear Your directions. I do not seek the things of time, and so I will not look upon them. For I long with all My heart to really know You once again. To leave the dream and move back into Eternity with You.  What I seek today transcends all laws of time and things perceived in time. Time is of the dream, and would walk back into forever. Leave the little box of ego prison. I would forget all things except Your Love. I would abide in You and know no laws except Your law of Love. So much more important to Me than all worldly things could be. And I would find the peace which You created for Your Son, – peace which flows from Love – forgetting all the foolish toys I made as I behold Your glory and my own. This is really what it means to come Home..

 

2 And when the evening comes today, we will remember nothing but the peace of God, and the sweet joy that it has brought to Us. For we will learn today what peace is ours when we forget all things except God’s Love. This focus is not selfish for it will heal the world of dreams.

I offer only miracles today, – let My gifts all be freely given good – For I would have them be returned to me.  I do get back what I give; so let My giving be but Good.

1 Father, a miracle reflects Your gifts to me, Your Son. For every miracle incepts in You. And every one I give returns to me, reminding me the law of love is universal, since We All are One. Even here it takes a form which can be recognized and seen to work. The harmony of God is operating, ever-present.  The miracles I give are given back in just the form I need to help me with the problems I perceive. Do You yet understand just how much You are Loved, how very safe You are with God? Let it register, filling You with joy! Father, in Heaven it is different, for there, there are no needs. For there is no delusion that One is separate from God. For Heaven is a state of Oneness that can be had right here, even while You dream. And it appears to be miraculous; it shows a holiness to Love of which You were unaware. But here on earth, the miracle is closer to Your gifts than any other gift which I can give. It is a much deeper, kinder sense of Love for My Brother. Then let me give this gift alone today, – loving Him this way – which, born of true forgiveness, lights the way that I must travel to remember You, Who is Love Itself.

2 Peace to all seeking hearts today. That they may be filled with a quiet joy. The light – of understanding – has come to offer miracles to bless the tired world, showing forth God’s Love; All can plainly see. It will find rest today, for we will offer what we have received. So gladly do We share Our Gifts from God with All Our Others, for We are so grateful to have been freed by Our forgiveness.

Today I learn the law of love; that what I give my brother is my brother is my gift to me.

This law can be well described as perfect reciprocity. What I give My Brother is automatically a gift to Me as well. Why? Because I now have it. Without having it, how could I give it? Perfection lives in its simplicity.

1 This is Your law, my Father, not my own. It goes far beyond My Dreamer greediness to get – and get more – instead of give. I did not understand what giving means and thought to save what I desired for myself alone. And as I looked upon the treasure that I thought I had, I found an empty place where nothing ever was or is or will be. This always is the result of getting: Dreamers prized and fruitless occupation.. Who can share a dream? And what can an illusion offer me? Yet he whom I forgive will give me gifts beyond the worth of anything on earth. For through Him I have really learned to Love. Let my forgiven brothers fill my store with Heaven’s treasures, which alone are real. Now You’ve made it plural Brother! You’re pushing it! Sister, everything I say and do has Your welfare at heart Belovèd. Yours and everyOne’s. For I Love You All so very dearly. Thus is the law of love fulfilled. And thus Your Son arises and returns to You.  And Who is the Father’s Son but the grand Reality of All of Us as One.

2 How near we are to one another, as we go to God. All of Us is One: the belovèd Son. How near is He to us. For the Son must be always One with Our omnipresent God. How close the ending of the dream of sin and the redemption of the Son of God. Closer than Your breath; nearer than Your heart. Thus is Communion holy with Our God.

I am not asked to make a sacrifice, to find the mercy and the peace of God.

It is not sacrifice that shows Us God, rather it is perfect joy that’s needed! For God and happiness are synonyms. All God’s synonyms are good and happy. Such is His Nature, which is True You too!

1 The end of suffering cannot be loss. The gift of everything can but be gain. You only give, belovèd Father. You never take away. And You created me to be like You, so sacrifice becomes impossible for me as well as You. I too must give, and so all things are given unto me forever and forever. The more I give, the larger My supply. As I was created, I remain. Your Son can make no sacrifice, for he must be complete, having the function of completing You. Just as the Rays complete the Sun, the Son completes His Father.  I am complete because I am Your Son. I cannot lose, for I can only give. And everything is mine eternally. What can it be but Love  that I both do give and do receive?

2 The mercy and the peace of God are free. Freely We have received, freely We give. Salvation has no cost. Salvation is God’s Gift of eternal Life, and holy understanding of the Truth and unselfish Love. It is a gift that must be freely given and received, and it is this that we would learn today. How to freely give, and how to freely receive: two things must be understood.

I let forgiveness rest upon all things, —as I ask God to show Me what is their true Reality, —

For thus forgiveness will be given me

1 I thank You, Father, for Your plan to save me from the hell I made. From which there seemed no escape but dying. It is not real. To learn this has made all the difference. And You have given me the means to prove its unreality to me. The key is in my hand, yet I’ve hardly seemed to understand how to truly forgive which was resistance; and I have reached the door beyond which lies the end of dreams. Help Me be willing! Open in Me a little willingness for which You have asked. I stand before the gate of Heaven, wondering if I should enter in and be at home. Dear God help Me to be willing to see Your Reality. Let me not wait again today, not waste another day willfully guided by the ego. Let me forgive all things, (start with My mindset) and let creation be as You would have it be and as it is. Let me remember that I am Your Son, so loved by You and loving every One, and opening the door at last, which leads to Heaven, forget illusions in the blazing light of truth, as memory of You returns to me. Can it really be so very simple? To just be willing?

It is dear Sister. It is dear Brother. The directions are so very simple. Every One of You knows with whom to start.

 

2 Brother, forgive me now. For I mis-saw You, thinking You to somehow be enemy. Now I see clearly through My willingness. I come to you to take you home with me. I give You My hand. And as we go, the world goes with us on the way to God. We’re All coming Home!

I can attack but my own sinlessness – by attacking I would then seem to sin, hiding gentleness – And it is only that which keeps me safe.

Keeps Me free from ego comparisons; which are views that hide innocence with sin.

1 Father, Your Son is holy. Once I know this for sure about Myself, I’ll know it easily for My Brothers, every single one. I am he on whom You smile in love and tenderness so deep and dear and still the universe smiles back on You and shares Your holiness. This is a Universe of Love, despite the human picture. How pure, how safe, how sacred then are we, –  how precious to Thee; how very holy – abiding in Your smile, with all Your Love bestowed upon us, how wonderful to be Your Son, Your One, living one with You in brotherhood and Fatherhood complete, in sinlessness so perfect that the Lord of Sinlessness conceives us as His Son, a universe of Thought completing Him. There is a magnitude to this quite beyond comprehension.

 

2 Let us not then attack our sinlessness, – but, instead, rejoice! Be grateful in it! – for it contains the Word of God to us, and in its kind reflection we are saved.  This is not just what We could be, but is what We really are.

Workbook PART II

What is a Miracle?

It is an unexpected healing of a chronic problem. And what is a “chronic problem”? One that has gone on for longer than an instant.

 

1 A miracle is a correction of a misperception. It does not create nor really change at all. It merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false. It allows Reality’s appearing.  It undoes error, by Be-ing the Truth, but does not attempt to go beyond perception nor exceed the function of forgiveness. Thus it stays within time’s limits. In other words, it operates within the dream to heal it. Yet it paves the way for the return of timelessness and love’s awakening, for fear must slip away under the gentle remedy it gives. All the while it’s building back the bridge between Reality and unreality, which leads Dreamers to awaken and return their consciousness to the experience of Heaven.

 

2 A miracle contains the gift of grace, for it is given and received as one. For God’s miracles are freely given. Will You receive them?  And thus it illustrates the law of truth the world does not obey because it fails entirely to understand its ways. And what is that law? Only Good is Real. Pay attention carefully to what I’m saying here about Your perception mode. A miracle inverts perception which was upside-down before, and thus it ends the strange distortions that were manifest. Now is perception open to the truth. Now is forgiveness seen as justified. Are You getting what I’m saying here? It’s as if You’ve gone through ‘life’ recently standing on Your head and wond’ring why You cannot seem to run a marathon again! Why don’t You stop thinking that You’re a body and, instead, remember that You’re Mind? Feel free to answer Me; the question is not rhetorical, but a wake-up call.

 

3 Forgiveness is the home of miracles. It understands the dream to be unreal, and therefore, there is nothing to forgive. The eyes of Christ deliver them to all they look upon in mercy and in love. And knowing this, We cannot but begin to Love Our Brothers. Perception stands corrected in His sight, becoming Vision, and what was meant to curse has come to bless. Truly does the Holy Spirit transform the worst of things into blessings for Us. Gratitude to God! Each lily of forgiveness offers all the world the silent miracle of love. Please let that sink deep into consciousness with great gratefulness. How great is Our God! And each is laid before the Word of God upon the universal altar to Creator and creation, in the light of perfect purity and endless joy.

There really is this thing called perfection.

 

4 The miracle is taken first on faith – there is at least a grain of faith (it matters not how miniscule it is) or miracles would be invisible to You – because to ask for it implies the mind has been made ready to conceive of what it cannot see and does not understand. Yes, You could say “a little willingness”. Yet faith will bring its witnesses to show that what it rested on is really there.  Now watch how Your willingness increases! And thus the miracle will justify your faith in it and show it rested on a world more real than what you saw before—a world redeemed from what you thought you saw. For miracles rest on Reality.

 

5 Miracles fall like drops of healing rain from Heaven on a dry and dusty world, where starved and thirsty creatures came to die. Yes, let Us add the Bibe verse that speaks so wonderfully to this idea: “I have longed for Thee as a dry and thirsty land where no water is.”Now they have water. Now the world is green. And everywhere the signs of life spring up to show that what is born will always be can never die, for what has life has immortality. This Course was given to bring an end to dying, which ends the dream; and vice versa.

Will You dream and die or choose instead to live by waking up? A simple question.

[Thank you Dear Brother]

I can be free of suffering today.

No more hoping for a better tomorrow.  All good there is is now, and Mine for the willingness I have to receive it.

The good is always here for good God is omnipresent; not so the willingness! Help Me change My attitude dear Father.

1 Father, I thank You for today and for the freedom I am certain it will bring. The possibilities are Infinite in every instant. This day is holy, for today Your Son will be redeemed. Redeemed by Your Love. His suffering is done. At any moment now He can let go of it. Suffering clings not to Him; He clings to it. For he will hear Your Voice directing him to find Christ’s vision through forgiveness and be free forever from all suffering. Let go Your grudges and You’ll find relief; they but drag You down. Thanks for today, my Father. I was born into this world but to achieve this day – to end so many eons of relentless belief in it; that’s its one purpose: to be freed from it and what it holds in joy and freedom for Your holy Son and for the world he made, which is released along with him today. The world will bring You joy only as You are released from it!

 

2 Be glad today! Be glad! It is Your day of liberation, if You but accept it. There is no room for anything but joy and thanks today. And such amazing gratitude for God. Our Father has redeemed His Son this day! We All are that Son redeemed by God’s Eternal Love for Us. Not one of us but will be saved today. EveryOne is joyfully included. Not one who will remain in fear, and none the Father will not gather to Himself, awake in Heaven in the Heart of Love. Each One of Us so tenderly embraced.

I will receive whatever I request.

Let Me watch carefully for what I ask. Yet, Brother, if this is true, then where is My million dollars?

Lost in an attachment to poverty; You’re just unaware. Remember, in the dream, ego runs Your show, unless You can say “No!” and mean it.

1 No one desires pain. Well, not consciously. But he can think that pain is pleasure. No one would avoid his happiness. But he can think that joy is painful, threatening, and dangerous. So much is wired up in victimhood; especially with God as the villain. Everyone will receive what he requests. You’re not victim to Your life, but author. But he can be confused indeed about the things he wants, the state he would attain. What can he then request that he would want when he receives it? He has asked for what will frighten him and bring him suffering. This is why You all have chosen dreaming; it’s so full of pain and different from Reality and God. We have been quite deliberately confused. Let us resolve today to ask for what we really want, and only this, that we may spend this day in fearlessness, without confusing pain with joy or fear with love. You have been so afraid of happiness, that You might lose it; so You have avoided it completely! How typical of ego reasoning.

2 Father, this is Your day. I trust it to You and not the ego.  It is a day in which I would do nothing by myself but hear Your Voice in everything I do; I’ll constantly consult You in all things, requesting only what You offer me, accepting only thoughts You share with me. I gladly take Your wishes to be all of My desires.

I am affected only by my thoughts.

What can this mean? What about My Brothers’ actions? Have they no effect on Me? Is that what You’re saying?

Yes, indeed, it is. They can have no effect on You unless You will them to. You can learn to disbelieve them, for nothing in the dream is true.

When You allow Me to Guide You, You release thinking; You have stepped without the dream.

1 It needs but this to let salvation come to all the world, for but One Mind runs the Universe. For in this single thought is everyone released at last from fear, by a very simple change in thinking. Now he has learned that no one frightens him and nothing can endanger him. For all things are consciousness, not ‘matter’. And it is He who writes the script each day and every instant. He has no enemies, and he is safe from all external things. His thoughts can frighten him, but since these thoughts belong to him alone, he has the power to change them and exchange each fear thought for a happy thought of love. If You must watch or read the news, then this is Your assignment. He crucified himself. Yet God has planned that His beloved Son will be redeemed.  God’s Plan is a living resurrection.

 

2 Your plan is sure, my Father—only Yours. All other plans will fail. Only You can cover every last detail in perfection. And I will have thoughts that will frighten me until I learn that You have given me the only thought which leads me to salvation. I must think only of Your Love for Me, and My Love for You, and by extension, all My Others too. Mine alone will fail and lead me nowhere. We cannot take Our thought apart from You, or We will stumble, most assuredly. But the thought You gave me promises to lead me home, – each step sure and steady, upheld safely by Your Love for Me and My Love for You – because it holds Your promise to Your Son. I will never leave You nor forsake You, My belovèd Son.

My sinlessness protects me from all harm.

For all I see is a world forgiven. How could it harm Me? All things are gentle, overflowing Love. … Nothing like the dream.

1 My sinlessness ensures me perfect peace, eternal safety, everlasting love, freedom forever from all thought of loss, complete deliverance from suffering. This is the experience of Heaven, a state of mind where only Good is found. It is not a location, but an Awareness Conscious that only Good is Real; there’s no opposite. Reiterating this important fact: there is not – nor could there ever be – something to oppose it. Only Good is Real. And only happiness can be my state, for only happiness is given me. God’s Gifts always Good! What must I do to know all this is mine? It’s hard to believe that such Gifts are Mine by My acceptance. I must accept Atonement for myself and nothing more. God has already done all things that need be done. Truly God is synonym to Giving. And I must learn I need do nothing of myself, for I need but accept my Self, – God’s first Gift to Me! – my sinlessness, created for me, now already mine, to feel God’s Love protecting me from harm, to understand my Father loves His Son, to know I am the Son my Father loves. His Love is so amazing, freely and forever giving!

2 You who created me in sinlessness – You Who are so gloriously Holy – are not mistaken about what I am.  Holy just like You.  I was mistaken when I thought I sinned, – what an awful nightmare, and now, thank God for this, it’s over – but I accept Atonement for myself. Father, – I am finally One again with You and All my Others – my dream is ended now, along with the awful experience of separation. How good Oneness feels. Amen.

Forgiveness lets me know that minds are joined.

Not just strung together loosely, but braided, intertwined in Love and harmony; many making One.

1 Forgiveness is the means appointed for perception’s ending. Who can be in harmony – no, not Me! No, not possibly! – with anger spilling out against My Sisters and My Brothers. Even if They’ve done so much wrong to Me, I must forgive them, if I’d be set free. How can I forgive? By knowing this is nothing but a dream (albeit nightmare, and quite convincing!) And I must take the Holy Spirit’s word that I am dreaming. Knowledge is restored after perception first is changed –there is another way to look at this – and then gives way entirely to what remains forever past its highest reach. For sights and sounds at best can serve but to recall the memory that lies beyond them all. Love’s Reality. Forgiveness sweeps away distortions and opens the hidden altar to the truth. Forgiveness chooses Love, eschewing hate. Its lilies shine into the mind and call it to return and look within, to find what it has vainly sought without. For here and only here is peace of mind restored, for this the dwelling-place of God Himself. For God is Consciousness, not a body; Mind that knows all Real We, too, are Consciousness instead of body. So perfect health comes from perfect thinking. My mind must be in harmony with God.

2 In quiet may forgiveness wipe away my dreams of separation and of sin. Help Me let them go Belovèd Father. Free them from within. Then let me, Father, look within – into a mind washed fresh and clean by Love, Itself so happy! – and find Your promise of my sinlessness is kept; – You see Me perfect; perfect I must be! – Your Word remains unchanged within my mind; Your Love is still abiding in my heart. Things are just the same as they’ve always been, in Reality, their Substance: Spirit.

Finally freed from grudges, I can see them, as They really are. How beautiful are My dearest Others.

I choose to see my brother’s sinlessness.

The alternative is to condemn Him. and Jesus says: “Do unto Others as You would be done to.” This sure does seem the fairest thing to do; for I do not want to be condemned too.

While it makes sense to Me, it’s just hard to do without Your help, belovèd Brother.

Dear Sisters and dear Brothers, I am here to help You. I will not go away; for I am here in the dream to stay ‘til We All are Awakened. Trust now what I say, and lean into My words throughout Your day: You are not alone.

 

1 Forgiveness is a choice. Let Me choose it now. I never see my brother as he is, for that is far beyond perception. I see Him but through the lens with which I choose to see for Me. What I see in him is merely what I wish to see because it stands for what I want to be the truth. I have already chosen what I want to see: it is the ego’s choice for Me, and, therefore, not really My choice at all. It is to this alone that I respond, however much I seem to be impelled by outside happenings. I choose to see what I would look upon, and this I see and only this. Now I understand: My old thoughts are responsible for dreams. Therefore, it is quite imperative that I change My thinking. I will choose again, as You ask Us too. This time with Your help, dear Elder Brother. My brother’s sinlessness shows me that I would look upon my own. Since He is holy, I am holy too, for We are Brothers. And I will see it, having chosen to behold my brother in its holy light. In blessing Him this way, I bless Myself as well, for We are One with each Other.

Belovèd Brothers, We All are holy. Thanks be unto God.

 

2 What could restore Your memory to me except to see my brother’s sinlessness? When I will to see with the loving eyes of God, then I see My Brother holy. His holiness reminds me that he was created one with me and like myself. And with joy I remember that there is no separation. In him I find my Self, – I know We are One – and in Your Son I find the memory of You as well. And I am at peace.

Today I claim the gifts forgiveness gives.

A bounty better than the gifts We give and get at Christmas. For in forgiveness is Christ reborn in each Holy Instant. Reborn so happily as You and Me.  We shall forever Love One Another.

1 I will not wait another day to find the treasures which my Father offers me. They must be right here. For My treasures can’t be distant from Me. To see them, I must – right here now – cease to believe illusions. Illusions must be vain and dreams are gone, even while they are woven out of thoughts that rest on false perception. Just like the whole dream. Let me not accept such meager gifts again today. Straying from Reality it always must be poverty. God’s Voice is offering the peace of God to all who hear and choose to follow Him. Peace is on beyond the greatest riches. This is my choice today. And so I go to find the treasures God has given me, which I have ignored. For I’m ready now to pay atttetion.

2 I seek but the eternal, that which is lasting. For Your Son can be content with nothing less than this. What need has the Son with a so-called “life” which includes dying. Absolutely none! What then can be his solace but what You are offering to his bewildered mind and frightened heart, to give him certainty and bring him peace? He can clearly feel the Love behind Your unspoken feelings of forgiveness, as chains drop from his heart, and it swings open. Free is He to Love. The desert of His heart gladly has become the greeenest vale. No death happens here in this Place of Life, blessed by forgiveness. Love can never die. It is eternal.Today I would behold my brother sinless. This Your Will for me, for thus will I behold my sinlessness. For His innocence includes Me as well. Remember! Minds are Joined.

Forgiveness ends the dream of conflict here.

Without grudges there can be no argument, no lack of harmony among Us.  As harmony is synonym to peace, where peace is there must be only Heaven.

1 Conflict must be resolved. Don’t make an effort to avoid it;  nor dance or run with it, just see it clearly and quite fearlessly. It cannot be evaded, set aside, denied, disguised, seen somewhere else, called by another name, nor hidden by deceit of any kind if it would be escaped. There must be healing. Always that’s the goal. It must be seen exactly as it is, where it is thought to be, in the reality which has been given it, and with the purpose that the mind accorded it. The mind sees conflict for its own reasons. It serves some purpose. This purpose, thus, must be revealed to You, by attention to the Holy Spirit. It is good to know – when in the hell of dreams – that there is Light at the tunnel’s end, For only then are its defenses lifted and the truth can shine upon it as it disappears. When the Light is come, – come really fully – there is end to darkness and to tunnels. For Light assuredly is Substance for all Reality.

 

2 Father, forgiveness is the light You chose – with Your great wisdom – to shine away all conflict and all doubt and light the way for our return to You. Always You are here; We have just been blind. For, truly, this journey has no distance. Simply change Your mind: exchanging ego for the Mind of Christ. It’s very simple, once willingness is present in Your mind. If You will to, You can allow it now. No light but this can end our evil dreams. Imagine freedom from this ego hell! No light but this can save the world. There’s no other way. Let this truth sink in. … … For this alone will never fail in anything, being Your gift to Your beloved Son. Of whom I am One, with All My Others.

Fear binds the world. Forgiveness sees it free.

Will You now help Me free the world from fear? All You need to do today is summarily dismiss all the grievances, You hold, the ones against Your sinning Brothers.  Evil do They seem; their ‘sins’ multiplied in unrepentance.

Yet can You heal them. How They do long for Your forgiveness to refresh them in the desert of their sins. They are parched for Love. “Father, forgive them, for They know not what They do.”1 This is true.

Forgiveness costs You nothing but self-righteousness. And Your reward is peace of mind.

1 The ego makes illusions. That’s its speciality; lies are all it knows. Truth undoes its evil dreams by shining them away. Its Light glorious, It pours from Heaven, illuminating all God’s Good long hidden by the ego. Truth never makes attack. It merely is. And by its presence is the mind recalled from fantasies, awaking to the Real, which has stood waiting, oh so patiently, for the Son of God to soon awaken. Forgiveness bids this presence enter in and take its rightful place within the mind. The place of healing. Without forgiveness is the mind in chains, believing in its own futility. Repeating endlessly its insane cycling of birth and death and birth and death, on and on, and on and on, continually, ad nauseum. You get the picture. Yet with forgiveness does the light shine through the dream of darkness, offering it hope and giving it the means to realize the freedom that is its inheritance. Oh the joy of being freed from going round and round, and round again, in circles.

2 We would not bind the world again today, but give it freedom from Our strange beliefs. Fear holds it prisoner. If We but knew how, We would release it. And yet Your Love has given us the means to set it free. Gladly We use it! Father, we would release it now, and wait no longer. For as we offer freedom, it is given us. We get what We give, so let Us give good. And we would not remain as prisoners while You hold out our freedom unto us. For now do We gratefully accept it! Thank You belovèd Father-Mother God.

Workbook PART II

What Is the Ego?

The worship of One’s self – with a little ‘s’ – instead of God.

1 The ego is idolatry—the sign of limited and separated self, born in a body, doomed to suffer and to end its life in death. This is the way You set it up to be.  A decision which has been most unrewarding. A choice at which You should have laughed. Instead You took it seriously,  as if it were valid. It is the will that sees the Will of God as enemy and takes a form in which It is denied. It sees Itself as god, yet knows it’s not; still, it would pretend The ego is the “proof” that strength is weak and love is fearful, life is really death, and what opposes God alone is true. And all this so-called ‘proof’ refers but to itself, quite non-existent, projected out upon God’s Son.

 

2 The ego is insane. In fear it stands beyond the Everywhere, apart from All, in separation from the Infinite. Fear and loneliness is all You can get from ego. In its insanity it thinks it has become a victor over God Himself, and in its terrible autonomy, it “sees” the Will of God has been destroyed. It thinks that it is real, and points to the dreaming world as validation for it. Separation is its ‘proof’ that it has been successful, for it takes the dream to be ‘reality’. Now You understand why it has seemed so hard to Awaken. Your belief in dreams is crucial. It dreams of punishment and trembles at the figures in its dreams, its enemies who seek to murder it before it can ensure its safety by attacking them. Dreams must be real, else the whole phantasmagoria will crumble. You must be quite sure that the dream is real. It has to be perfectly convincing.

 

3 The Son of God is egoless. What made Him choose dreams and keep on choosing? What but addiction. What can he know of madness and the death of God when he abides in Him? He must stay drunk on dreams, or else He’ll Awaken. Therefore, they must be convincing and compelling and frightening as well. What can he know of sorrow and of suffering when he lives in eternal joy? More ‘real’ to Him than happiness. This takes determination! What can he know of fear and punishment, of sin and guilt, of hatred and attack when all there is surrounding him is everlasting peace, forever conflict-free and undisturbed in deepest silence and tranquillity? This peace, accepted, would quickly put an end to all dreamings.

 

4 To know Reality is not to see the ego and its thoughts, its works, its acts, its laws and its beliefs, its dreams, its hopes, its plans for its salvation, and the cost belief in it entails. You must let go of all investment in any kind of dreams, and ask, instead, to see the Son of God, right there where You are. And You will see Him  In suffering, which is the firm foundation of the dream,  the price for faith in it is so immense that crucifixion of the Son of God is offered daily at its darkened shrine and blood must flow before the altar where its sickly followers prepare for death. Without the belief that suffering is real, the Son would have to give up dying1 You can see how deep runs the investment. The dream rests on suffering and the ability to ‘die’.

 

5 Yet will one lily of forgiveness change the darkness into light, – the Love that stands behind forgiveness illuminates the gloominess of dreaming. the altar to illusions to the shrine of Life Itself. False gods gone, God is in His Place again, and We there with Him. And peace will be restored forever to the holy minds which God created as His Son, His dwelling-place, His joy, His love, completely His, completely one with Him. All We need do: Love God enough to let go of the ego. It’s always simple.

[Thank you Dear Brother]

There is no conflict, for my will is Yours.

“In God We Trust” describes it all for Me. For nothing else could have such constancy.

1 How foolish, Father, to believe Your Son could cause himself to suffer! How insane this dream! Could he make a plan for his damnation and be left without a certain way to his release? We can Awaken from this nightmare now! You love me, Father. I can feel Your Love, even as I dream! We’re not forsaken! You could never leave me – nor any Other – desolate, to die within a world of pain and cruelty. You are ever here, as My saving Grace. How could I think that Love has left Itself? Ever-caring is the holy nature of Your Love for Me and All My Others. There is no will except the Will of Love. I will accept Love; It is Life Itself for Me, forever.  Fear is a dream and has no will that can conflict with Yours. I need Awaken! Conflict is sleep, and peace awakening. I need Awaken. Death is illusion; life, Eternal Truth. There is no opposition to Your Will. There is no conflict, for my will is Yours. I choose Life today

2 Forgiveness shows us that God’s Will is one and that we share it. For His Will is Love, and Love’s Vision sees but Innocence wherever It may look. Let us look upon the holy sights forgiveness shows today – as We see Others through eyes of Love, incapable of any condemnation – that we may find the peace of God, through lack of judgment.  For minus judgment, all there is is Love. Amen.

I will not hurt myself again today.

What do You mean? It isn’t Me, it’s He, My hateful Brother! Surely You can see, Jesus, how very wrong He’s been to Me!  He needs to forgive Me, for His insane imaginations!

What’s that You’re saying? That He’s My mirror and what I see of He directly reflects right back to Me. So I need to change, both behavior as well as vision. …

Oh, I think I see: It is only My own vision able to bring harm to Me.

1 Let us this day accept forgiveness as our only function. Forgive Myself is what I need to do, and – when that is done – then do I find that I have now forgiven all My Others. Why should we attack our minds and give them images of pain, when forgiveness does but eliminate all painful pictures? We can just forgive; it is so simple! Why should we teach them they are powerless when God holds out His power and His Love and bids them take what is already theirs? Our minds filled with Love, which is natural. The mind that is made willing to accept God’s gifts – beginning with what else but forgiveness! – has been restored to Spirit and extends its freedom and its joy, as is the Will of God united with its own. There is but One Will, which We share with God. The Self which God created cannot sin and therefore cannot suffer. For there also is but One Self, which We gladly share with God! What does this do but end separation! This is the healing. Let us choose today that He be our identity – as Reality, He is already – and thus escape forever from all things the dream of fear appears to offer us. What is the end of fear, but Heaven; not a place, but a state.

2 Father, Your Son cannot be hurt. For You are ever-present Be-ing Him. And if we think we suffer, we but fail to know our one Identity we share with You. You are Our Revealer, not the ego. We would return to It today, to be made free forever from all our mistakes and to be saved from what we thought we were.  Those thoughts We had brought endless nightmares, and now We’re being healed! Sing hallelujah!

I have already chosen what You will.

It is the perfect remedy for the ego nightmare that has been encouraged and allowed by Me.

1 Father, I thought I wandered from Your Will, defied it, broke its laws, and interposed a second will more powerful than Yours. In My arrogance I actually believed that I could do such insanity! And so I got lost in awful nightmares in which I’ve seemed trapped. Now I have turned to You with all My heart.  I’m seeking freedom, although lost in dreams. Yet what I am in truth is but Your Will, extended and extending. I hear You say I have not changed the Truth of Me, nor could I ever harm Myself in Reality. This am I. And this will never change. You are One Power, always for My Good. As You are One, so am I one with You. And this I chose in my creation, where my will became forever one with Yours. It can never be undone; as this Truth, so stands My safety. It is a permanent, part of each One of God’s Ideas (of which I am One). That choice was made for all eternity. It cannot change and be in opposition to itself. Eons of seeming endless ego dreams have no reality but My belief, My demand for dreams. I will change My mind! Now is not too soon! Father, my will is Yours. And I am safe, untroubled and serene in endless joy because it is Your Will that it be so. I can make this choice and never vacillate from it, for You’re the only Power.

 

2 Today we will accept our union with each other and our Source. So many of Us have believed that We were separate and lost and trapped in dreams. And We didn’t know that We could waken! Well We surely can! No need to delay! We have no will apart from His, and all of us are one because His Will is shared by all of us. Bye-bye loneliness, now and forever. Through it we recognize that we are one. Angst and anguish gone, never to return; replaced with Our permanent belonging. Through it we find our way at last to God, God, Our happiness, is Ours forever.

I chooses the second place to gain the first.

True freedom comes only when We defer to God, Guidance, and the Holy Spirit.

There’s no hardship there; it’s very simple.

1 What seems to be the second place is first, for all things we perceive are upside down until we listen to the Voice of God. Listening to God brings th’only power. It seems that we will gain autonomy but by our striving to be separate and that our independence from the rest of God’s creation is the way in which salvation is obtained. Yet has it been shown for eons that separation is but a loss of power. Still cling We to myths of ‘independence!’ Yet all we find is sickness, suffering and loss, and death. So much of nothing for independence! This is not what our Father wills for us, – for He joyously gives Us the Kingdom – nor is there any second to His Will: God the Head of All. To join with His is but to find our own. The great correction for separation. And since our will is His, it is to Him that we must go to recognize our will. How beautifully this realization ends the separation.

 

2 There is no will but Yours. And I so gladly yield to Its benefits. And I am glad that nothing I imagine contradicts what You would have me do. That imagination would be ego. It is Your Will that I be wholly safe, eternally at peace. And happily I share that Will which You, my Father, gave as part of me. In sharing Will with You, We move as One, an exquisite dance, and one quite joyous.

I need but call and You will answer me.

Could there be words sweeter to the ears, or more reassuring? None that I have heard. We have a God of Love, ever-caring, always attentive; waiting for Our call, should We need some help.

Could the sun forget or lose a ray? No! Never! For sun and rays are always One.  Just so is the Son always One with God; no separation. For Immanuel means truly God as Us; it stands for such Oneness with Our Source, perhaps beyond Your understanding now. Yet is It available to You when You desire It. For what else but Oneness could truly end the separation?

All You need then is the willingness to stop the dreams and move Your mind back to the Consciousness of God. It is that simple. It’s called waking up!

You wake from Your sleeping dreams every day.  Now will to wake, as well, from waking ones. All You need – to start – is that little willingness for which I have asked You!  Would You give it now, to God?

 

1 I am not asked to take salvation on the basis of an unsupported faith. I need not be afraid of what long ago became so very unfamiliar, through My choice alone. For God has promised He will hear my call and answer me Himself. Truth is His Nature. Let me but learn from my experience that this is true, and faith in Him must surely come to me. It’s here already as I allow My Self to feel His dear Love embracing Me. This is the faith that will endure and take me farther and still farther on the road that leads to Him. I can trust His Love, forever present. For thus I will be sure that He has not abandoned me and loves me still, awaiting but my call to give me all the help I need to come to Him. The sun has yet to lose a ray; nor could God lose ever any One of His dearly belovèd Sons, of Whom I am One.

 

2 Father, I thank You that Your promises will never fail in my experience if I but test them out. Your forgiveness and Your faithfulness are solid ground on which I stand when beset by foolish fears coming from the ego. Let me attempt therefore to try them and to judge them not, but be delighted. Your Word is one with You. I’m One, too, with You! You give the means whereby conviction comes, and surety of Your abiding Love is gained at last. And I am awake and Home again, as if I’d never left. In Truth, I didn’t. And that Truth – from dreaming now – can free Me.

I am forever an effect of God.

He is constant Life – streaming endlessly – and His Be-ing is forever Be-ing Me, continually, with absolutely no interruption. He is but My cause; there is no other. My cause is not conception and gestation, which are but parts of ego dreaming. My God is My Cause; I have no other, nor do I need one.

It’s important here to be emphatic, if One would awaken from the dream mythology to right Now Eternal Life.

1 Father, I was created in Your Mind, – revealed as an Idea; substance: thought! – a holy Thought that never left its home. And this is why I am not a body. I am forever Your Effect, and You forever and forever are my Cause. And this has been always; long before the dreams were incepted. As You created me, are eternally creating MeI have remained. Where You established me, I still abide, – alive in mind, never ever in non-existent ‘matter’ –and all Your attributes abide in me as Me for they are My very Substance – because it is Your Will to have a Son so like his Cause that Cause and Its Effect are indistinguishable, like Rays and the Sun, for they are but One. Let me know that I am an Effect of God, and so I have the power to create like You. Here We’ll say reveal for Reality does not begin; nor does It ever end.  Mind and Its Ideas are Eternal. And as it is in Heaven, so on earth. For there can be no separation, only misperception. God still is God no matter how We think. Your plan I follow here, and at the end I know that You will gather Your Effects – the Real We all do result from You – into the tranquil Heaven of Your Love, where earth will disappear and separate thoughts unite in glory as the Son of God. Your belovèd Son of God: each One of Us makes up the Son.

2 Let us today behold earth disappear, – the solid sense of it –at first transformed, to a place of Love, and then, forgiven, fade entirely into such lovely Spirit, God’s holy Will.
