TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face. The Guidance is in normal type In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You. When You see the word ‘YOU’ capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.

Let me forget my brother’s past today. Oh, no! Shucks! There go all My grievances! Thus must I relate to Him as Equal. No more superiority for Me! No more dwelling in the past or future. All there is is Now. Now I would Love Him.
For Love is all there really is when Now is not distorted by the so-called ‘past’ or dreams of ‘future’.
1 This is the thought that leads the way to You and brings me to my goal. I cannot come to You without my brother. – All Brothers, not even One excluded! And ditto Sisters! – And to know my Source, I first must recognize what You created one with me. –Even one exclusion denies the Whole. Without the Whole there is no Holiness. –My brother’s is the hand that leads me on the way to You. His sins are in the past along with mine. – Forgive Your Brother, and You free Yourself. – And I am saved because the past is gone. Let me not cherish it within my heart or I will lose the way to walk to You. – For You are only found right here and now. – My brother is my savior. – My ticket to ride the train to Heaven, a Journey of the mind from insanity to Sanity. – Let me not attack the savior You have given me. – And see Him as the risen Christ instead, for He is for Me. – But let me honor him who bears Your Name and so remember that It is my own. Thus do I rise too, from the dark graveyard of dreaming egos.
2 Forgive me, then, today. – Be freed from endless dreams of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’; heroes and villains. – And you will know you have forgiven me if you behold your brother in the light of holiness. – Shining on Us All. – He cannot be less holy than can I, and you cannot be holier than he. Perfect equality; ever unfolding, never boring! “I make All Things New!” declares the Father.
This does not mean the ‘past’ has been restructured, for there is no such thing, nor ever could be. It only seemed, and only as a dream. What it means is that since BE-ing is forever Now, all things are always new as the One, only, Holy Instant.
What is the Holy Spirit?
1The Holy Spirit mediates between illusions and the truth. – Most of You have no idea not only Who, but What You really are. Hence the necessity for both the Holy Spirit and this explanation. Oh, You know the words all right, but not the music, nor how to dance to its exquisite melody. – As He must bridge the gap between reality and dreams, perception leads to knowledge through the grace that God has given Him, to be His gift to everyone who turns to Him for truth. Now what exactly is this ‘He’ that the Holy Spirit is? Is He a person? To You it seems that any “He” must be personified. Yet is It more like Truth. For Holy Spirit is – literally – What You are minus the separation. So when You feel His Love, It is Your own You really feel.
You could say that all Dreamers do share Him, for He is the rest of Each One of You. He makes Us All One.
Holy Spirit – once again, literally – is What We are, Our very Substance.
Across the bridge that He provides are dreams all carried to the truth, to be dispelled before the light of knowledge. There are sights and sounds forever laid aside. And where they were perceived before, forgiveness has made possible perception’s tranquil end. When You forgive Your Brothers for what They never did, then must the dream be over. ‘Right’ and ‘wrong’ alone are all that do perpetuate the dream.
2 The goal the Holy Spirit’s teaching sets is just this end of dreams. For sights and sounds must be translated from the witnesses of fear to those of love. – Thus translation ends all misperception. – And when this is entirely accomplished, learning has achieved the only goal it has in truth. For learning, as the Holy Spirit guides it to the outcome He perceives for it, becomes the means to go beyond itself, to be replaced by the Eternal Truth. There is a truth while You are dreaming, which says: none of this is Real. Once that is accepted, then does Eternal Truth become Your Reality.
3 If you but knew how much your Father yearns to have you recognize your sinlessness, – i.e. Your Perfection Everlasting – you would not let His Voice appeal in vain nor turn away from His replacement for the fearful images and dreams you made. As much as God yearns for You, do You yearn for Him. Why do You think You overeat, drink and ue drugs, shop endlessly for things, make Brothers wrong and finally sicken so that You can die? Because the dream tells You that God is reached only by dying. Tricky, is ego. Life without God is more pointless than death.
The Holy Spirit understands the means you made, by which you would attain what is forever unattainable. –How insane the dream; how very Sane the Holy Spirit. – And if you offer them to Him, He will employ the means you made for exile to restore your mind to where it truly is at home. You need not know how; just lean into and trust Holy Spirit. Remember this: Holy Spirit is not a thing, but the Substance of everything.
4 From knowledge, where He has been placed by God, the Holy Spirit calls to you to let forgiveness rest upon your dreams and be restored to sanity and peace of mind. When You forgive Your Brother for what He never did, it is because You are willing to accept the dream as unreal. That understanding brings You close to Heaven.
Without forgiveness will your dreams remain to terrify you. For You are insisting that they are real. This insistence leaves You stuck fast in the dreaming.
And the memory of all your Father’s Love will not return to signify the end of dreams has come. For You have turned Your back on God, on Love. Such is the high cost of unforgiveness.
Think You it’s worth it? Thus would You be ‘right’ instead of happy.
5 Accept your Father’s gift. – So freely given. – It is a call from Love to Love that it be but itself. What else could it be? … What else could You be?
The Holy Spirit is His gift by Which the quietness of Heaven is restored to God’s beloved Son. Would you refuse to take the function of completing God when all He wills is that you be complete? You are already. Yet You keep pretending that You aren’t.
Come Belovèd Ones, take My hand, and let’s run Home together.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
