LESSON THIRTY-TWO

Love's Guidance

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.

I have invented the world I see.  Which is pure insanity in the face of Reality.  And this must then mean that I need not suffer longer from the effects, so-called, of unreality.  That sounds good to Me, very good to Me!

Why would I pretend to be mortal, when I am immortal?  Therefore, all this so-called ‘’birth’ and ‘dying’ serves but to hide Reality from Me.

And it is but Reality that I would will to see.

1 Today we are continuing to develop the theme of cause and effect. You are not the victim of the world you see because you invented it.  You might say that it is Your victim. You can give it up as easily as you made it up. You will see it or not see it, as you wish. While you want it, you will see it; when you no longer want it, it will not be there for you to see.  So, what keeps You in the dream but Your own preference for dreaming, rather than Awakening; doing as You please rather than Be-ing in Harmony with God and with Creation.

2 The idea for today, like the preceding ones, applies to your inner and outer worlds, which are actually the same. However, since you see them as different, the practice periods for today will again include two phases, one involving the world you see outside you and the other the world you see in your mind. In today’s exercises, try to introduce the thought that both are in your own imagination.

Accepting this idea may be distressing to Your ‘victimhood’.  Yet You are the Son of God, and the Son of God is surely no-one’s victim

3 Again we will begin the practice periods for the morning and evening by repeating the idea for today two or three times while looking around at the world you see as outside yourself. Then close your eyes and look around your inner world. Try to treat them both as equally as possible. Repeat the idea for today unhurriedly as often as you wish as you watch the images your imagination presents to your awareness.  It is Your very own grade B movie!  Self entertainment.

4 For the two longer practice periods, three to five minutes are recommended, with not less than three required. More than five can be utilized if you find the exercises restful. To facilitate this, select a time when few distractions are anticipated and when you yourself feel reasonably ready.

5 These exercises are also to be continued during the day as often as possible. The shorter applications consist of repeating the idea slowly as you survey either your inner or outer world. It does not matter which you choose.

6 The idea for today should also be applied immediately to any situation which may distress you. Apply the idea by telling yourself:

7 I have invented this situation as I see it.

Does this mean that I can dis-invent it?  Most assuredly.

LESSON THIRTY-ONE

Love's Guidance

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.

I am not the victim of the world I see.

Nor can the world be the victim of Me.  For Heaven stands untouched by any dreams.

Not so the Dreamer; yet the Son of God S/He is rests safe and secure as Heaven (the Holy Spirit), as Reality; despite His experience of dreaming.

The world isn’t ‘doing it’ to Me!  I’m doing ‘it’ to the world! Son of a gun!  That’s a tough idea for Me to swallow!

Theoretically, okay; but to really get it is a major change of mind, not just lip service.  Well, no time like NOW to implement it!

So what You’re saying here is that I’ve taken Heaven and turned My experience of It into a hell that’s called ‘the world’.  That’s very uncool; … an understatement.  There’s one saving grace: I can change my mind and gain My freedom.  For Reality is untouched by Me.

1 Today’s idea is the introduction to your declaration of release.  Based on Your willingness to accept it.  Again, the idea should be applied to both the world you see without and the world you see within. In applying the idea, we will use a form of practice which will be used more and more, with changes as indicated. Generally speaking, the form includes two aspects, one in which you apply the idea on a more sustained basis, and the other consisting of frequent applications of the idea throughout the day.  Let Your mind become accustomed to this new way of seeing.  It can only bless.

2 Two longer periods of practice with the idea for today are needed, one in the morning and one at night. Three to five minutes for each of them are recommended. During that time, look about you slowly while repeating the idea two or three times. Then close your eyes and apply the same idea to your inner world. You will escape from both together, for the inner is the cause of the outer.  How You are thinking does make Your vision.

3 As you survey your inner world, merely let whatever thoughts cross your mind come into your awareness, each to be considered for a moment and then replaced by the next. Try not to establish any thought of hierarchy among them. Truly it’s Your mind in operation that You are watching. Watch them come and go as dispassionately as possible. Do not dwell on any one in particular, but try to let the stream move on evenly and calmly, without any special investment on your part. As you sit and quietly watch your thoughts, repeat today’s idea to yourself as often as you care to, but with no sense of hurry.  We have forever to All be Awake together.  Even now We are.  It’s just that You are sleeping.  And, yet, still You are embraced by Our Love.

4 In addition, repeat the idea for today as often as possible during the day. Remind yourself that you are making a declaration of independence in the name of your own freedom. And in your freedom lies the freedom of the world.  It’s just lovely to not be a victim.  Freedom is the inheritance of the Holy Son of God.

5 The idea for today is a particularly useful one to use as a response to any form of temptation. It is a declaration that you will not yield to it and put yourself in bondage.  One cannot be free and be a victim spontaneously.  It took a dream to seem to enslave You.  And now You are regaining Your experience of freedom.

LESSON THIRTY

Love's Guidance

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.

God is in everything I see, because God is in my mind.  Actually, God is My mind, for I have no mind but His, despite the arrogance of the ego.  So what I see, God is the Author of:  all things visible and invisible; all things Real and Good.

1 The idea for today is the springboard for vision. From this idea will the world open up before you, and you will look upon it and see in it what you have never seen before. The God said to be invisible is plain to see expressed as His Creation.Nor will what you saw before be even faintly visible to you.

2 Today we are trying to use the new kind of projection. We are not attempting to get rid of what we do not like by seeing it outside. Instead, we are trying to see in the world what is in our minds, and what we want to recognize is there.  This is the beginning to recognizing Our kinship with all creation.  “Have We not All One Father?  Hath not One God created Us?1  Thus we are trying to join with what we see, rather than keeping it apart from us. That is the fundamental difference between vision and the way you see.  You see here that I am taking My ancient words and bringing them to include All of Creation.  For Spirit – by Its Holy Nature – must be All-inclusive.

3 Today’s idea should be applied as often as possible throughout the day. Whenever you have a moment or so, repeat it to yourself slowly, looking about you and trying to realize that the idea applies to everything you do see now or could see now if it were within the range of your sight. No matter how You see things now, still all Reality is God.  You need not change ‘out there’ but just correct Your own vision.

4 Real vision is not limited to concepts such as “near” and “far.” To help you begin to get used to this idea, try to think of things beyond your present range as well as those you can actually see, as you apply today’s idea. Real vision is not only unlimited by space and distance, but it does not depend on the body’s eyes at all.  It sees not just everywhere, but everywhen and everyhow.  The mind is its only source.  In Truth, Mind is the only Source of Everything.  Mind, God, Sources All Things Real. Ego sources the dream.

Which mind shall it be that I let rule Me?

5 To aid in helping you to become more accustomed to this idea as well, devote several practice periods to applying today’s idea with your eyes closed, using whatever subjects come to mind and looking within rather than without. Today’s idea applies equally to both.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

1 Malachi 2:10 King James Version

Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

John 13:34-35

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

LESSON TWENTY-NINE

Love's Guidance

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.

God is in everything I see.  For, after all, it is His Universe and not the ego’s.  The ego simply distorts for Me what is Reality.  Therefore, does Reality patiently wait for Me to become aware of It.

Indeed.  And Your awareness is the purpose of these Lessons.  It stands partner with Your willingness to Listen for My Voice and freely share It.

1 The idea for today explains why you can see all purpose in anything.  God is everywhere and ever-present. Thus must all things always be indissolubly connected. So nothing stands alone but the ego, for it isn’t real.  It explains why nothing is separate, by itself or in itself.  God knows naught of separation. Reality is Oneness. And it explains why nothing you see means anything.  Viewing separation, You see nothing real there, but just Your imaginations. Today’s idea is for correction of this misperception. In fact, it explains every idea we have used thus far and all subsequent ones as well. Today’s idea is the whole basis for vision. It stands here as Your corrective lenses.

2 You will probably find this idea very difficult to grasp at this point. You may find it silly, irreverent, senseless, funny, and even objectionable. Certainly God is not in a table, for example, as you see it. As You see it, for You don’t see God in all things yet. Therefore, You don’t see at all. Yet we emphasized yesterday that a table shares the purpose of the universe. And what shares the purpose of the universe shares the purpose of its Creator.

3 Try then today to begin to learn how to look on all things with love, appreciation, and open-mindedness.  (Needless to say, this includes Your Brother.) You do not see them now. Would you know what is in them? Nothing is as it appears to you. Its holy purpose stands beyond your little range. When vision has shown you the holiness that lights up the world, you will understand today’s idea perfectly.  A good incentive: True happiness will be revealed to You as ever-present. And you will not understand how you could ever have found it difficult.  Today’s idea, and Your happiness.

4 Our six two-minute practice periods for today should follow a now familiar pattern: begin with repeating the idea to yourself, and then apply it to randomly chosen subjects about you, naming each one specifically. Try to avoid the tendency toward self-directed selection, which may be particularly tempting in connection with today’s idea because of its wholly alien nature. Remember that any order you impose is equally alien to reality. No order of difficulty in miracles, no order of Holiness in any of God’s Ideas.

5 Your list of subjects should therefore be as free of self-selection as possible. For example, a suitable list might include:

6 God is in this coat hanger.
God is in this magazine.
God is in this finger.
God is in this lamp.
God is in that body.
God is in that door.
God is in that waste basket.

All things have meaning of their own, and are worthy of Your most careful attention.

7 In addition to the assigned practice periods, repeat the idea for today at least once an hour, looking slowly about you as you say the words unhurriedly to yourself. At least once or twice you should experience a sense of restfulness as you do this.  Or, perhaps, as You just did, a sense of deep and quite grateful appreciation, which will, in turn, be appreciated.1

LESSON TWENTY-EIGHT

Love's Guidance

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.

Above all else, I want to see things differently.  This Lesson makes the idea more specific.  Yesterday, We just wanted to see.  Now We begin to make the problem with Your vision clearer.  The way You see is all things separately; i.e. the vision of separation.  It’s Reality that We want to see.  Reality Knows not separation.

You can hear My words, yet are they comprehensible at all?  Eyes and minds that only know separation, do remember Oneness not at all.  So first, We do need desire to see God’s Reality..

1 Today we are really giving specific application to the idea for yesterday. In these practice periods, you will be making a series of definite commitments. Thus is the little willingness asked for, perhaps even more!  The question of whether you will keep them in the future is not our concern here. If you are willing at least to make them now, – for there is only now, thus it’s sufficient – you have started on the way to keeping them. And we are still at the beginning.  And for You All, I have endless patience.

2 You may wonder why it is important to say, for example, “Above all else I want to see this table differently.” In itself it is not important at all. Yet what is by itself? Important question. This is the greatest difference between waking and sleeping, as You’re now learning.  And what does “in itself” mean? You see a lot of separate things about you, which really means you are not seeing at all. For separation means that You are blind.  As I said 2000 years ago: You have eyes and You do not see.1 Not Reality. You either see or not. And if You cannot see Reality, You can’t really see. Remember that I also said: When the blind lead the blind, They both fall in the ditch.2  Harsh words or just facts?  When you have seen one thing differently, you will see all things differently. The light you will see in any one of them is the same light you will see in them all.  No, they are not harsh for behind them is the Gift of Heaven.

3 When you say, “Above all else I want to see this table differently,” you are making a commitment to withdraw your preconceived ideas about the table and open your mind to what it is and what it is for. You are not defining it in past terms.  This is good, for it brings You to right now. You are asking what it is, rather than telling it what it is. You are not binding its meaning to your tiny experience of tables, nor are you limiting its purpose to your little personal thoughts.  Thus can You really Love and appreciate the table now.

4 You will not question what we have already defined. And the purpose of these exercises is to ask questions and receive the answers. In saying, “Above all else I want to see this table differently,” you are committing yourself to seeing. It is not an exclusive commitment. It is a commitment which applies to the table just as much as to anything else, neither more nor less.  Really seeing the table can reveal Your Brothers to You in a whole new way.

5 You could, in fact, gain vision from just that table if you could withdraw all your own ideas from it and look upon it with a completely open mind. It has something to show you-something beautiful and clean and of infinite value, full of happiness and hope. Hidden under all your ideas about it is its real purpose, the purpose it shares with all the universe. 

6 In using the table as a subject for applying the idea for today, you are therefore really asking to see the purpose of the universe. You will be making this same request of each subject which you use in the practice periods. And you are making a commitment to each of them to let their purpose be revealed to you instead of placing your own judgment upon them.

7 We will have six two minute practice periods today in which the idea for the day is stated first and then applied to whatever you see in looking about you. Not only should the subjects be chosen randomly, but each one should be accorded equal sincerity as today’s idea is applied to it in an attempt to acknowledge the equal value of them all in their contribution to your seeing.  Unbind Your Love from Your preconceptions, and It will flow like an undammed river!

8 As usual, the applications should include the name of the subject which your eyes happen to light on, and you should rest your eyes on it while saying:

9 Above all else, I want to see this ______ differently.

10 Each application should be made quite slowly and as thoughtfully as possible. There is no hurry.  Like Eternity, Your Love is boundless.

LESSON TWENTY-SEVEN

Love's Guidance

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.

Above all else I want to see.  And, therefore, I am willing to make that My priority. In other words, I want My Real Vision more than I want a new car, a goldendoodle, a healing for My loved One, the whole kit and kaboodle of the ego’s constant demanding. God becomes My desire number One.

1 Today’s idea expresses something stronger than mere determination. It gives vision priority among your desires. For when I really see, the world becomes beautiful to Me.  You may feel hesitant about using the idea on the ground that you are not sure you really mean it. For sometimes lesser desires clamor for My attention.  They seem important, ‘though I know better. This does not matter. The purpose of today’s exercises is to bring the time when the idea will be wholly true a little nearer.  In other words, practice really does make perfect, when I will to be diligent!  This is putting ‘will’ to much better use than for all those Me, Me, Me desires.  And it brings such amazing happiness!

The key is but to ignore the ego, which will not take its demotion lightly!

2 There may be a great temptation to believe that some sort of sacrifice is being asked of you when you say you want to see above all else. If you become uneasy about the lack of reservation involved, add:

3 Vision has no cost to anyone.  Jesus tells Me so, and I do trust Him quite implicitly.  Yet the ego speaks so loudly to Me, so persistently!

4 If fear of loss still persists, add further:

5 It can only bless.

You know I would never lie to You; thus can You trust My words.  For I care only for Your happiness.  Ditto for God and the Holy Spirit.  We Love You so much.  Let Yourselves feel Our endless Love for You.

6 The idea for today needs many repetitions for maximum benefit. It should be used at least every half hour, and more often if possible. You might try for every 15 or 20 minutes. It is recommended that you set a definite time interval for using the idea when you wake or shortly afterwards and attempt to adhere to it throughout the day. It will not be difficult to do this, even if you are engaged in conversation or otherwise occupied at the time. You can still repeat one short sentence to yourself without disturbing anything that is going on.  Willingly I say yes, then I forget!  I say with Paul: “Wretched One that I am!”1

Belovèd!  We do not see You that way any more than We saw Paul as wretched!  To Us You All are so very lovely. Rest into the ever-present Arms of Love and feel Our Love for You.  This is not hyperbole but Truth about Our Love for Each One of You.

7 The real question is how often will you remember? How much do you want today’s idea to be true? Answer one of these questions, and you have answered the other. You will probably miss several applications and perhaps quite a number. Do not be disturbed by this, but do try to keep on your schedule from then on. If only once during the day you feel that you were perfectly sincere while you were repeating today’s idea, you can be sure that you have saved yourself many years of effort.  My words to You are both True and trustworthy: Above all else You do want to see.
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
1 Romans, Chapter 7:18-25

For I know that in me, (that is, in my flesh) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with Me;but (how) to perform that which is good, I find not.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

CIMS DAILY LESSON

LESSON TWENTY-SIX

Love's Guidance

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.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.  How come?  Quite simple.  It is because attack thoughts and invulnerability are both states of mind. In one way or another, We say this with every word that passes through Our Consciousness.  All things do take place together!  So what differentiates them?  Some are real, and some are not.

1 It is surely obvious that if you can be attacked, you are not invulnerable. And, obviously, if You can attack, so can Your Brother!  Which does make Him Your instant enemy.  And, then, vice versa.  You see attack as a real threat. That is because you believe that you can really attack. Again, what You believe about Yourself, You believe about Your Brother, and vice versa. This will be reiterated until You get it! And – not only that, but! – what would have effects through you must also have effects on you. So here We have what You might call a double whammy! A lose-lose situation! However, Holy Spirit to the rescue, there’s an upside! It is this law that will ultimately save you. But you are misusing it now. You must therefore learn how it can be used for your own best interests rather than against them.  Don’t worry! This is not selfish, for – by the same rule – what blesses You must also bless Your Brother.  Such is the Law of Love in operation.

2 Because your attack thoughts will be projected, you will fear attack. Thus do these facts encourage You – albeit first through fear – to look at the results of hatred, another word for Your lack of Love; for there is no difference. And if you fear attack, you must believe that you are not invulnerable. Thus are You weakened more by Your own mind than You are – or could be – by Another’s.  It is an inside job, so to speak, in the vernacular! Do remember this. Attack thoughts therefore make you vulnerable in your own mind, which is where the attack thoughts are.  And let Us both note and remember here that consciousness is but the one source of sin, sickness, dying, states unknown to God. Attack thoughts and invulnerability cannot be accepted together. They contradict each other.  Again because minds are joined, all thoughts that affect Your Brother affect You as well.  Thus, when You will to bless Your Brother, are You then also blessed.  This is the law of reciprocity.

And now You do understand God’s words through Moses: “I have set before You Life and death, blessing and cursing.  Therefore, choose Life.”  The separated Son of God still has dominion.  And having chosen to limit God’s own Revelation of Himself, the Son can then seem to do and even be the antithesis of God, and therefore, of that which He – the Holy belovèd Son – really is.

Seems a conundrum?  Only to the ego which would ‘sin’ with impunity, and thus, never, ever, wish to Awaken.

3 The idea for today introduces the thought that you always attack yourself. If attack thoughts must entail the belief that you are vulnerable, their effect is to weaken you in your own eyes. Opening the door to more illusion in the form of sin, sickness, dying. (Would You not choose again?  I will repeat this.) Thus they have attacked your perception of yourself. And because you believe in them, you can no longer believe in yourself. A false image of yourself has come to take the place of what you are.  Belovèd Son of God, what a futile exercise this is!  Why not Awaken?

With that in mind, let Us now continue, and do the Lesson gladly, together:

4 Practice with today’s idea will help you to understand that vulnerability or invulnerability is the result of your own thoughts. Nothing except your thoughts can attack you. Nothing except your thoughts can make you think you are vulnerable. And nothing except your thoughts can prove to you this is not so.  So watch the use to which You put Your mind.  Measure it by Love.

5 Six practice periods are required in applying today’s idea. A full two minutes should be attempted for each of them, although the time may be reduced to a minute if the discomfort is too great. Do not reduce it further.

 

6 The practice period should begin with repeating the idea for today, then closing your eyes and reviewing the unresolved situations whose outcomes are causing you concern. The concern may take the form of depression, worry, anger, a sense of imposition, fear, foreboding, or preoccupation. Any problem as yet unsettled which tends to recur in your thoughts during the day is a suitable subject. You will not be able to use very many for any one practice period, because a longer time than usual should be spent with each one. Today’s idea should be applied as follows:

7 First, name the situation:

8 I am concerned about ______.

9 Then go over every possible outcome which has occurred to you in that connection and which has caused you concern, referring to each one quite specifically, saying:

10 I am afraid ______ will happen.

11 If you are doing the exercises properly, you should have some five or six distressing possibilities available for each situation you use and quite possibly more. It is much more helpful to cover a few situations thoroughly than to touch on a larger number.

12 As the list of anticipated outcomes for each situation continues, you will probably find some of them, especially those which occur to you toward the end, less acceptable to you. Try, however, to treat them all alike to whatever extent you can.

13 After you have named each outcome of which you are afraid, tell yourself:

14 That thought is an attack upon myself.

15 Conclude each practice period by repeating today’s idea once more.

“My attack thoughts are attacking My invulnerability.”
