CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON THIRTY-FIVETRANSCRIBER’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 mind is part of God’s. I am very holy. Yes! Very Holy. That is not exaggeration, but the Truth of Your true nature. Why do You not experience it? Because You don’t choose to live it. Make that choice and be astounded at how beautiful You really are.
1 Today’s idea does not describe the way you see yourself now. Yes, I know. Hardly! Yet it still remains the Truth about You. It does, however, describe what vision will show you. Why not embrace it, since it is the Truth, albeit unseen to lacking Vision. It is difficult for anyone who thinks he is in this world to believe this of himself. Yet the reason he thinks he is in this world is because he does not believe it. Thus the ego keeps You stuck in dreaming.
2 You will believe that you are part of where you think you are. Smack dab in the dream, deliberately refusing to Awaken because You think You prefer to dream. So You keep dreaming! That is because you surround yourself with the environment you want. And you want it to protect the image of yourself that you have made. Known as the ego, which is just a name for nothingness, because it is the same. Mathematically, the ego equals nothing but nothing. Do You get My point? I’m being deliberately redundant! The image is part of it. What you see while you believe you are in it is seen through the eyes of the image. This is not vision. Images cannot see. The Dreamer and the dream are still a part of slumber, although in the dream One does seem to be awake. This is important.
3 The idea for today presents a very different view of yourself. By establishing your Source, it establishes your identity, and it describes you as you must really be in truth. Although many of You see Your Holy Source as Father, or Father-Mother, yet neither God nor Son has any gender.
For God is complete, as is His Infinite and Holy Offspring. (Also known as You!) Pause a little bit to understand this, for it is quite foreign to the ego’s definitions.
We will use a somewhat different kind of application for today’s idea, because the emphasis for today is on the perceiver rather than on what he perceives. Today We look within so-called consciousness to see what just seems to be without. Yet, it is within.
4 For each of the three five-minute practice periods today, begin by repeating today’s idea to yourself and then close your eyes and search your mind for the various kinds of descriptive terms in which you see yourself. Include all of the ego-based attributes which you ascribe to yourself, positive or negative, desirable or undesirable, grandiose or debased. All of them are equally unreal, because you do not look upon yourself through the eyes of holiness. Which is True Vision. All else is blindness.
5 In the earlier part of the mind searching period, you will probably emphasize what you consider to be the more negative aspects of your perception of yourself. Toward the latter part of the exercise period, however, more self-inflating descriptive terms may well cross your mind. Try to recognize that the direction of your fantasies about yourself does not matter. Illusions have no direction in reality. They are merely not true. Said very clearly: The ego that You think You are is not. Yet You are quite Real.
6 A suitable unselected list for applying the idea for today might be as follows:
7 I see myself as imposed on.
I see myself as depressed.
I see myself as failing.
I see myself as endangered.
I see myself as helpless.
I see myself as victorious.
I see myself as losing out.
I see myself as charitable.
I see myself as virtuous.
Okay! You may see Yourself as none of those, yet You do have a list! So use it! There’s no need to get it ‘right’. Just get it!
Thank God for Me (that’s Brother speaking) that I have a sense of humor! Let’s approach this light-heartedly. Waking up is fun!
We have forever. LET US NOT TAKE IT! Just for Your sake, dear Brothers; for Your sake.
8 You should not think of these terms in an abstract way. They will occur to you as various situations, personalities and events in which you figure cross your mind. They may or may not be discomforting. It doesn’t matter. You’re not being judged! Remember how very much I Love You, every One of You. Pick up any specific situation that occurs to you, identify the descriptive term or terms which you feel are applicable to your reactions to that situation, and use them in applying today’s idea. After you have named each one, add:
9 But my mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.
This is a lovely breather from dreaming to Reality.
10 During the longer exercise periods, there will probably be intervals in which nothing specific occurs to you. Do not strain to think up specific things to fill the interval, but merely relax and repeat today’s idea slowly until something occurs to you. Although nothing that does occur should be omitted from the exercises, nothing should be “dug out” with effort. Neither force nor discrimination should be used.
Trust Your own lovely Be-ing to be unfolding as It does. … Yes. Very lovely.
11 As often as possible during the day, pick up a specific attribute or attributes you are ascribing to yourself at the time and apply the idea for today to them, adding the idea to each of them in the form stated above. If nothing particular occurs to you, merely repeat the idea to yourself with closed eyes.
“My mind is part of God’s. I am very Holy.”
[Thank you Dear Brother]
