Workbook PART II

My present happiness is all I see. … When I am willing! Mostly My willing is but willfulness and not willingness. What a pity, for willfulness is synonym to blindness.
1 Unless I look upon what is not there, – My sinful Brother, a figment of My imagination – my present happiness is all I see. For happiness is but Reality.
Eyes that begin to open see at last. I shut My eyes to God and His wonderful Creation when I slipped into the dream. Open eyes but do bring Awakening.
And I would have Christ’s vision come to me this very day. – This world is grotesque, as is all dreaming. – What I perceive without God’s own correction for the sight I made is frightening and painful to behold. So much suffering within the dreaming.
Yet I would not allow my mind to be deceived by the belief the dream I made is real an instant longer. This the day I seek my present happiness and look on nothing else except the thing I seek. Brother help Me resolutely turn My back upon the dream, and look into Reality instead, for better vision.
2 With this resolve, I come to You and ask Your strength to hold me up today while I but do Your Will. You are both My strength and My Redeemer. For to You – God – I give My perfect trust. You cannot fail to hear me, Father. What I ask have You already given me, and I am sure that I will see my happiness today. I only ask for what You do insist I have already. Let Me remember!
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]
