Love's Guidance

Miracles are seen in light.

Yet are they illuminating too; making bright the sad and pointless darkness of the egos’ dreaming their communal dreams

When We will to see the Light, Reality – as It breaks through the darkness, showing up as miracles – is so gladly seen.

1 It is important to remember that miracles – which are glimpses of God’s Reality right within the dream – and vision – the awareness and the willingness to really see what’s here – necessarily go together.  For there must be something for You to see!  And You need Vision to see the ‘something’!  This needs repeating and frequent repeating. – ‘til it sinks in, or at least begins to – It is a central idea in your new thought system and the perception which it produces. Let Us say here about “perception”, that it’s the understanding that God is Good; ergo, the Universe is Good as well. This means all of Its components, including You, and You, and You, and You, and You!  For Our Good God – Be-ing gentle Love – is but All-Inclusive.  Each One of Us is the “belovèd Son”. The miracle is always there.  That One that You really are is ever-present, patiently awaiting Your recovery from dreaming. Its presence is not caused by your vision; its absence is not the result of your failure to see.  It’s always there, always has been here, and it always will be. It is only your awareness of miracles that is affected. You will see it in the light: Your willingness to see the Light again; you will not see it in the dark, Your unwillingness to believe the reality of Light.

2 To you, then, light is crucial.  For It does lift Your darkened thought into the wonderful, amazing Life of God!  What a place of Joy!  This I promise You. While you remain in darkness, the miracle remains unseen. What makes the darkness but fixation on One’s self, to the detriment of Others. Thus you are convinced it is not there.  With thought turned inward, contemplating on what You think and how You feel, and what You should do, when is there time to Love Your Brother? How much Love do You have to give to Him?  Not very much, with what is left over from the kindly gifts of grace that You so gladly give Yourself, and not Your Brother. This follows from the premises from which the darkness comes. Denial of light leads to failure to perceive it.  You deny the Light because You love Yourself far more than You do love Your Brother! Failure to perceive light is to perceive darkness. Thus do You dwell in darkness, even sunbathing in the sun. The light is useless to you then, even though it is there. You cannot use it because its presence is unknown to you.  You’re still too self-centered. And the seeming reality of the darkness makes the idea of light meaningless.  What care You for Holy Light when You’re busy looking in the mirror, admiring Yourself again.

3 To be told that what you do not see is there sounds like insanity. It is very difficult to become convinced that it is insanity not to see what is there and to see what is not there instead. You do not doubt that the body’s eyes can see. You do not doubt the images they show you are reality.  Yet You don’t see Reality, because You’re quite fast asleep. Your faith lies in the darkness, not the light.   In the nightmare of dreams that flood the night.

4 How can this be reversed? For You – so full of the bile of the ego’s hatred of Our Father which is quite blinding – it is impossible, but you are not alone in this.  Your efforts, however little they may be, have strong support. Did you but realize how great this strength, your doubts would vanish.   Let Us pause here, for a moment, to talk about the hatred.  You think this is digression?  No, it’s not.  For hatred is debilitating, ultimating in sin, sickness and dying. It and its fruits are the antithesis of God, of Love. They’re doing ‘Your own thing’, in common parlance.  What claims to be opposite to Love is but hate in the dream.  And this is weakness.

For Your Love of God shows forth in Your willingness to but have constant communion. Today we will devote ourselves to the attempt to let you feel this strength.  The strength that does come from Our sweet, constant holy communion. When you have felt the strength in you which makes all miracles within your easy reach, you will not doubt.  From whence comes this strength but from communion.  On Your ‘own’ what can You possibly do? The miracles your sense of weakness hides will leap into awareness as you feel the strength in you.  All You need do is make the connection, and stay connected.  This willingness is the first step. The Father, Holy Spirit and I will Guide You for the rest!  Please just give Us that “little willingness”!  Let Us gladly practice this together.

5 Three times today, set aside about ten minutes for a quiet time in which you try to leave your weakness behind. This is accomplished very simply, as you instruct yourself that you are not a body.  You are pure Spirit. Trust My words here and not Your senses.  For I speak only Truth. Faith goes to what you want, and you instruct your mind accordingly. Albeit this is done unconsciously, quite unconsciously.  And it is done according to Your will. Your will remains your teacher, and your will has all the strength to do what it desires. You can escape the body if you choose. You can experience the strength in you.  Tell Me: Why is this?  Simply because strength is true about You.  Your Real Be-ing must always be available right here and right now.  Where else would It be, could it be, but right where You are?

6 Begin the longer practice periods with this statement of true cause and effect relationships:

7 Miracles are seen in light.  Miracles are but lovely glimpses of Reality slipping into the dream.
The body’s eyes do not perceive the light.
But I am not a body. What am I?

Is it not the body that is My Identity?.  It’s not. Although it is used for Your identification, it’s surely not what You are.

8 The question with which this statement ends is needed for our exercises today. What you think you are is a belief to be undone. But what you really are must be revealed to you. If You know not what You are, how can You know how to be, or what are correct decisions to be made?  Thus, the clear need for the Holy Spirit. The belief you are a body calls for correction, – not condemnation – being a mistake. The truth of what you are calls on the strength in you to bring to your awareness what the mistake concealed: Your Reality.

9 If you are not a body, what are you?  Curiosity is what is called for!  Yet look at Your old saying: curiosity killed the cat; invented to block curiosity and Holy Spirit. You need to be aware of what the Holy Spirit uses to replace the image of a body in your mind. You need to feel something to put your faith in, as you lift it from the body. You need a real experience of something else, something more solid and more sure, more worthy of your faith, and really there.  This Course and My Guidance on it aims to meet the need.  That is its limit.  Your job is to receive it and to use it.  Its goal is quite simple: to facilitate Your joining to end the separation.  Not complicated.

10 If you are not a body, what are you? Ask this in honesty, and then devote several minutes to allowing your mistaken thoughts about your attributes to be corrected, and their opposites to take their place. Say, for example:

11 I am not weak, but strong.
I am not helpless, but all powerful.
I am not limited, but unlimited.
I am not doubtful, but certain.
I am not an illusion, but a reality.
I cannot see in darkness, but in light.

12 In the second phase of the exercise period, try to experience these truths about yourself. Concentrate particularly on the experience of strength. Remember that all sense of weakness is associated with the belief you are a body, a belief that is mistaken and deserves no faith. Try to remove your faith from it, if only for a moment. Remember: You’re not a body.  You’re free to Be as God is now creating Thee. You will become accustomed to keeping faith with the more worthy in you as we go along.

Learn to shut up the ego; it takes some practice.  You are deserving of all Good.

13 Relax for the rest of the practice period, confident that your efforts, however meager, are fully supported by the strength of God and all His Thoughts. It is from Them your strength will come. It is through Their strong support that you will feel the strength in you. They are united with you in this practice period in which you share a purpose like Their own. Theirs is the light in which you will see miracles because Their strength is yours. Their strength becomes your eyes that you may see.

14 Five or six times an hour at reasonably regular intervals remind yourself that miracles are seen in light.   So pray – ask for help – to free Your long endarkened mind from hell.  For life experienced as apart from God is  what hell is. Also, be sure to meet temptation with today’s idea. This form would be helpful for this special purpose:

15 Miracles are seen in light. Let me not close my eyes – shut up My own mind – because of this.  Let Me, to-day, desire healing, rather than being ‘right’.

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.

REVIEW II

1 We are now ready for another review. We will begin where our last review left off and cover two ideas each day. The earlier part of each day will be devoted to one of these ideas, and the latter part of the day to the other. We will have one longer exercise period and frequent shorter ones in which we practice each of them.

2 The longer practice periods will follow this general form: take about 15 minutes for each of them, and begin by thinking about the idea and the comments which are included in the assignments. Devote about three or four minutes to reading them over slowly, several times if you wish, and then close your eyes and listen.

While the ideas – of themselves – are quite important, the crucial part is the Listening, Our Communion.

Repeat the first phase if you find your mind wandering, but try to spend the major part of the practice period listening quietly but attentively.

3 There is a message waiting for you. Be confident that you will receive it. Remember that it belongs to you and that you want it. Do not allow your intent to waver in the face of distracting thoughts. – The ego mindset is quite good at distraction. – Realize that, whatever form they take, they have no meaning and no power. – Each and every thought coming from the ego mindset is meaningless, for it comes from belief in a ‘reality’ that is non-existent. – Replace them with your determination to succeed. Do not forget that your will has power over all fantasies and dreams. – The choice is always Yours.  Choose once again until Your choice is always God and Love. – Trust it to see you through and carry you beyond them all.

4 Regard these practice periods as dedications to the way, the truth, and the life. Refuse to be side-tracked into detours, illusions, and thoughts of death. You are dedicated to salvation. Be determined each day not to leave your function unfulfilled.

What else could You be doing that is as important as this is?  No other endeavor has worth even close to this one.

5 Reaffirm your determination in the shorter practice periods as well, using the original form of the idea for general application and a more specific form when needed. Some specific forms will be included in the comments. These, however, are merely suggestions. It is not the particular words you use that matter.

It is Your heart’s desire and Your diligence that matter.  Desire is prayer.

L e s s o n  90

1 For this review we will use these ideas:

[79] Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved.  Though the solution is universal, I must realize there is a problem!

2 Let me realize today that the problem is always some form of grievance which I would cherish.  Hmm.  Then obviously it is solvable by Me, since I must have created it.  Let me also understand that the solution is always a miracle with which I let the grievance be replaced.  So then must forgiveness be a miracle within the dream. Today I would remember the simplicity of salvation by reinforcing the lesson that there is one problem and one solution.  (lack of Love solved by Love’s restoration) The problem is a grievance; – There’s no Love in that – the solution is a miracle.  Love’s restoration!  And I invite the solution to come to me through my forgiveness of the grievance and my welcome of the miracle which takes its place.

I need not be ‘right’ in order to be healed.  For all I need is to be willing to listen for the Holy Spirit in place of the ego.  It only takes a little willingness.

Do You see that what it takes to do that is but willingness.  A willingness to be a different way, a way more loving. A way that is kind and gentle to each One of Your Others.  I might add here that this dictum applies to All Beings universally.

3 Specific applications of this idea might be in these forms:

4 This presents a problem to me which I would have resolved.  Yes, I am willing to let go of it.
The miracle behind this grievance will resolve it for me. 
What else could it be but My forgiveness!
The answer to this problem is the miracle which it conceals. 
The problem always looks to be ‘out there’ yet is it found always to be within.

 

[80] Let me recognize my problems have been solved.  How can You say that when You’ve got a list as long as Your arm?  Since You haven’t solved them yet what makes You think You ever will?  What has made this difference for You now?

That’s a great question!  What else could it be but Holy Spirit!  I gave Her all My problems to be solved.  S/He’s working for Me!  The ego wasn’t helping squat, so I gave them over to the Holy Spirit.  Best decision that I have ever made!

S/He explained some other things to Me too.

5 I seem to have problems only because I am misusing time. I see it as a thing quite linear; for I do not understand the entire dream didn’t really happen in an unholy instant.  I believe that the problem comes first, and time must elapse before it can be worked out. I do not see the problem and the answer as simultaneous in their occurrence. That is because I do not yet realize that God has placed the answer together with the problem, so that they cannot be separated by time. The Holy Spirit will teach me this if I will let Him. And I will understand it is impossible that I could have a problem which has not been solved already.   For this whole thing is a dream!  Therefore, although there surely seem to be in the dream, there are no problems.

6 These forms of the idea will be useful for specific applications:

7 I need not wait for this to be resolved – as believed both by the world and said to Me by the ego: that all things take time.  They don’t take time.  They take a change of mind.
The answer to this problem is already given me if I will accept it.
Time cannot separate this problem from its solution. 
In other words, the answer must be now, here, available.  I’ll listen for it.

[Thank you Dear Brother]

1 These are our review ideas for today: with much to be learned about Our right to them and their purpose.

[77] I am entitled to miracles.  A miracle – rightly received – makes You, the recipient, so very happy.

2 I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God’s.  His Laws are Light, and bring this Light to You, and all the world. His laws release me from all grievances and replace them with miracles. THE HOLY SPIRIT knows that is just wonderful; the ego thinks it’s disaster.  Which one is in charge: happiness or hell?

Choice is always Mine, and I can always choose again.  The ego is so very persuasive.  I can just try it.

Why not make the right choice now.  Why delay for another moment?  Each passing moment in the dream is a lost Holy Instant.  Why deprive Yourself of peace and joy?  For what, exactly?  Nothing but the petty, useless ego.

You can now make another choice, … right now!  Would You not rather have a miracle than to be insane?  Sanity gives You peace and happiness, and is much more fun!  It’s a simple choice.

I know You’re right belovèd Brother, and I listen to You!  I can start right now.

And I would accept the miracles in place of the grievances, which are but illusions that hide the miracles beyond.  It is a good trade.  I must admit it.  I know this will be a great adventure. So let’s get started!  Now I would accept only what the laws of God entitle me to have that I may use it on behalf of the function He has given me.

Forgiveness is a Gift of Love and power.  How so?  It makes You Whole first, and then restores Your Brother.  And what is Your Wholeness but the Son of God now coming back into His Right Mind!  This is the why of A Course In Miracles, not just endless sinning/forgiving.  It’s Awakening, the end of the dream; Your return to Heaven right here and now.

3 You might use these suggestions for specific applications of this idea:

4 Behind this is a miracle to which I am entitled.  I’ve only blocked them.  Now I’ll accept them, starting this instant!
Let me not hold a grievance against you [name],
but offer you the miracle that belongs to you instead. 
For if I really knew Myself and You, there would be nothing but the Son of God.  And I would remember by loving You.
Seen truly, this offers me a miracle.

Miracles bless Giver and Receiver.

[78] Let miracles replace all grievances.   “All grievances”, not just one or two, or ten, but every one.

5 By this idea do I unite my will with the Holy Spirit’s and perceive them as one. By this idea do I accept my release from hell.  Grievances have seemed appealing, but they are an instant hell and they keep You there.  Be smart, reject them.  By this idea do I express my willingness to have all my illusions be replaced with truth according to God’s plan for my salvation.  The Holy Spirit is not foreign to Me, for It is nothing but My Right Mind.  Why would I not so gladly accept It! I would make no exceptions and no substitutes. I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have.  What has the ego given Me: pain, sorrow, all misery!

6 Useful specific forms for applying this idea would be:

7 I would not hold this grievance apart from my salvation.   I can choose happiness and let it go.  And I will do that!
Let our grievances be replaced by miracles, [name]. 
For We truly can Love One another.
Beyond this is the miracle by which all my grievances are replaced. 
And I will claim it now for every One of Us, joyously!

[Thank you Dear Brother]

1 Today we will review these ideas:

[75] The light has come.  It never went away.  I see now I was blocking It with My darkened thinking.  Now is consciousness illuminating.  What a joy this is!

2 In choosing salvation rather than attack, I merely choose to recognize what is already here.  And what is always here at hand – waiting for the choosing – but God, the Life, the Truth and Love that I have been refusing, by My continued insistence on dreaming! Salvation is a decision made already. Why not just Awaken?  Dreaming’s gotten really tiresome! It’s even boring. Attack and grievances are not there to choose.  They’re figments of My imaginations. And I am but pretending that they’re ‘real’ to give them substance.  Now I’m stuck with dense thinking and dense body, because I began to believe My imagination! “It must be real because I think it!” So goes My reasoning. That is why I always choose between truth and illusion, between what is there and what is not. The light has come. What naturally does wake a Dreamer from a dream but Light.  This Light I must choose.  I can but choose the light, for it has no alternative. It has replaced the darkness, and the dark is gone.  Yet do I relentlessly shut My eyes and persist in dreaming, or I would already be Awake.

Indeed dear Sisters and dear Brothers, You do do this.  Yet You do not need to!  You can choose again.  Would You not again Be Light and be happy?

Do You really prefer to live a life of quiet desperation, expecting some little pills to be Your salvation?  Or what ever else You might believe to be Your ‘saviour’.  They all must fail You.

3 These would prove useful forms for specific applications of this idea:

4 This cannot show me darkness, for the light has come. Even to My tightly shut, sleeping eyes, to My skewed vision.  It is so bright and beautiful, I hide from It no longer!
The light in you is all that I would see, [name]. 
When My eyes are open, Light as You is all that I can see.
I would see in this only what is there. 
And all that I can see is Perfection.

 

[76] I am under no laws but God’s.

No-One is.  We may choose to bow down to the ego, yet can We always un-choose it!  For its so-called ‘laws’ are evil, while the Laws of God are but supremely Good.

Shall We choose the Laws of Love or the spurious so-called ‘laws’ of the hateful ego?  Let Us say with Joshua: “-as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”1  And then let’s do it!  Who else?  Would You serve false ‘gods’?  Has it profited You?  You know it hasn’t!   

5 Here is the perfect statement of my freedom.  My declaration of independence from all sickness, sin and death. God is My only sovereign. The body rules not over Me; for God rules over it, and keeps it perfectly. Ditto for My mind; as I allow Myself to become aware again of God. I am under no laws but God’s. I am constantly tempted to make up other laws and give them power over me.  Tempted by what?  Tempted by the ego claiming to be Me. I suffer only because of my belief in them.  – ego’s specious ‘laws’ – They have no real effect on me at all.  I can – at any time – claim My freedom. I am perfectly free of the effects of all laws save God’s. And His are the laws of freedom.  For only I have enslaved Myself, and I can always choose again. … Like right now!

6 For specific forms in applying this idea, these would be useful:

7 My perception of this shows me I believe in laws which do not exist.
I see only the laws of God at work in this.
Let me allow God’s laws to work in this and not my own.

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

1 Joshua 24:15

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose You this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

What else could You be doing that is as important as this is?  No other endeavor has worth even close to this one.

5 Reaffirm your determination in the shorter practice periods as well, using the original form of the idea for general application and a more specific form when needed. Some specific forms will be included in the comments. These, however, are merely suggestions. It is not the particular words you use that matter.

It is Your heart’s desire and Your diligence that matter.  Desire is prayer.

1 Our review today will cover these ideas:

And continue improving Your idea and Your use of will, till they are in alignment with the Father-Mother and the Holy Spirit.

[73] I will there be light.  What are You wishing for here, but Spirit’s understanding Love for All Your Others.

2 I will use the power of my will today.  Not for self-aggrandizement but to gently bless My Others. It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal.  Also known as the ‘human condition’. Light shall be my guide today.  I already feel Its beneficence blessing Me and Every One that I see. I will follow it where it leads me, and I will look only on what it shows me.  Let Spirit’s understanding be My Guide to how I’m seeing; not just for today, but eternally.  How good that does feel, walking in God’s way. This day I will experience the peace of true perception.  Because I choose for Love instead of hate.

3 These forms of this idea would be helpful for specific application:

4 This cannot hide the light I will to see.  Right where You are [to the One Who challenges Your patience] is Light so lovely – so unique to You – that I long to see It.  When I do, then will I really know You.
You stand with me in light, [name]. 
We stand together, You and I, as God’s illumination.  How lovely to see are We, You and Me.
In the light this will look different. 
It has already!  Our Holiness is now so obvious!

[74] There is no will but God’s.  Therefore, must My will be as One with His.  How harmonious is such a feeling!

5 I am safe today because there is no will but God’s. I can become afraid only when I believe that there is another will.  In other words, the pretense that I could have a will apart from God’s that might be thwarted!  That is a grand impossibility!  I try to attack only when I am afraid, and only when I try to attack can I believe that my eternal safety is threatened. Today I will recognize that all this has not occurred. I’ve simply been having some aggressive dreams. I am safe because there is no will but God’s.  And always is His Will for You benign.

6 These are some useful forms of this idea for specific applications:

7 Let me perceive this in accordance with the Will of God. God’s Will is that We Love One Another.
It is God’s Will you are His Son, [name], and mine as well
, to see You this way: belovèd One; belovèd Son of God.
This is part of God’s Will for me, however I may see it. 
So I can see an error – have My grievances – if I wish to try to box with God.  My arms too short to box with Him, My understanding is just way too miniscule for Me to even argue with Him!

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.


REVIEW II

1 We are now ready for another review. We will begin where our last review left off and cover two ideas each day. The earlier part of each day will be devoted to one of these ideas, and the latter part of the day to the other. We will have one longer exercise period and frequent shorter ones in which we practice each of them.

2 The longer practice periods will follow this general form: take about 15 minutes for each of them, and begin by thinking about the idea and the comments which are included in the assignments. Devote about three or four minutes to reading them over slowly, several times if you wish, and then close your eyes and listen.

While the ideas – of themselves – are quite important, the crucial part is the Listening, Our Communion.

Repeat the first phase if you find your mind wandering, but try to spend the major part of the practice period listening quietly but attentively.

3 There is a message waiting for you. Be confident that you will receive it. Remember that it belongs to you and that you want it. Do not allow your intent to waver in the face of distracting thoughts. – The ego mindset is quite good at distraction. – Realize that, whatever form they take, they have no meaning and no power. – Each and every thought coming from the ego mindset is meaningless, for it comes from belief in a ‘reality’ that is non-existent. – Replace them with your determination to succeed. Do not forget that your will has power over all fantasies and dreams. – The choice is always Yours.  Choose once again until Your choice is always God and Love. – Trust it to see you through and carry you beyond them all.

4 Regard these practice periods as dedications to the way, the truth, and the life. Refuse to be side-tracked into detours, illusions, and thoughts of death. You are dedicated to salvation. Be determined each day not to leave your function unfulfilled.

What else could You be doing that is as important as this is?  No other endeavor has worth even close to this one.

5 Reaffirm your determination in the shorter practice periods as well, using the original form of the idea for general application and a more specific form when needed. Some specific forms will be included in the comments. These, however, are merely suggestions. It is not the particular words you use that matter.

It is Your heart’s desire and Your diligence that matter.  Desire is prayer.

1 These ideas are for review today:

[71] Only God’s plan for salvation will work.

Do I really think I could come up with a better plan listening to the ego?  I must or I wouldn’t need salvation.

2 It is senseless for me to search wildly about for salvation.  This is the ego’s motto: Seek and do not find. Yet I would not be an ego. The old ways don’t work: I have seen it in many people and in many things, but when I reached for it, it was not there. I was mistaken about where it is. I was mistaken about what it is. I will undertake no more idle seeking.  To do things on One’s own is inviting abysmal failure. And this is why ‘dying’ was invented.  Dreams turn too sour.  Dying brings the chance at a ‘better’ dream.  Right.  “Hope springs eternal” another Dreamer concept, keeping within the dream. “Hope” and “eternal” come with Awakening. For real hope is the certainty of a wonderful here and now eternity! Only God’s plan for salvation will work. And I will rejoice because His plan can never fail.  Father, Brother, Holy Spirit, guide Me.  I’ll gladly follow.

3 These are some suggested forms for applying this idea specifically:

4 God’s plan for salvation will save me from my perception of this. How I do see this Individual, this situation. 

Indeed, there is another way to look at this: an opportunity to Love.
This is no exception in God’s plan for my salvation.

Surely I have an opinion of it!  Let Me lay that to the side and listen.
Let me perceive this only in the light of God’s plan for salvation. 
Let Me let the Holy Spirit perceive this anew for Me.

[72] Holding grievances is an attack on God’s plan for salvation.  That is no surprise.  It is just tempting.

Sister, have You not noticed that temptation comes but to keep You within the dream, and applies but to negativity?

Not till this instant, when it came clear as You were saying this.  I just never thought about it before.  It’s so obvious.

Obvious to the devious ego, using temptation to keep You bound and stuck within the dream!  Temptations are like fishhooks, easy in, not so easy out.  As usual, Awakening is always the solution.

5 Holding grievances is an attempt to prove that God’s plan for salvation will not work.  It’s another form of Catch 22! Yet only His plan will work. By holding grievances, I am therefore excluding my only hope of salvation from my awareness. What insanity! Dreaming is insane! I want to waken!  I would no longer defeat my own best interests in this insane way. I would accept God’s plan for salvation and be happy.  The choice is happiness or grievances.  There is no “in-between”.

6 Specific applications of this idea might be in these forms:

7 I am choosing between misperception and salvation as I look on this.  Brother let Me use Your eyes to see this the same way You do.  You Who said: “Father forgive them, for They know not what They do.”

Ah, that I might see the way that You do.
If I see grounds for grievances in this
I will not see the grounds for my salvation.
Brother, I ask again for Your Vision. This calls for salvation, not attack.  It is but a call for Love if I am willing to hear it.

[Thank you Dear Brother]

LESSON EIGHTY-FIVE

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.


REVIEW II

R2:1 We are now ready for another review.  Why do We review but to strengthen Our understanding, on the subconscious level, till the Truth does replace the dream mindset as Your given. We will begin where our last review left off and cover two ideas each day. The earlier part of each day will be devoted to one of these ideas, and the latter part of the day to the other. We will have one longer exercise period and frequent shorter ones in which we practice each of them.

2 The longer practice periods will follow this general form: take about 15 minutes for each of them, and begin by thinking about the idea and the comments which are included in the assignments. Devote about three or four minutes to reading them over slowly, several times if you wish, and then close your eyes and listen. Repeat the first phase if you find your mind wandering, but try to spend the major part of the practice period listening quietly but attentively.  Quiet, attentive listening is but Our holy goal here.  This to replace the habit of thinking!

3 There is a message waiting for you.  Your Right Mind is speaking to You always. You need but listen to be filled with Love, and with happiness. Be confident that you will receive it.  The Holy Spirit has but good intentions for You, although the ego does not see that and works very hard to block It! Remember that it belongs to you and that you want it. It speaks of Your Divinity and how very Loved You are. Do not allow your intent to waver in the face of distracting thoughts. Would You not be Loved?  The Love of God is so far, far beyond any sense of Love in the so-called human experience. Yet It’s always available to You!  Open Your heart so that You may receive and embrace It now.

Realize that, whatever form they take, – ego’s paltry thoughts; pay them no attention, just dismiss them! – they have no meaning and no power. Replace them with your determination to succeed. Do not forget that your will has power over all fantasies and dreams. Trust it to see you through and carry you beyond them all.  Reality can and does override all ego dreaming.

4 Regard these practice periods as dedications to the way, the truth, and the life. Refuse to be side-tracked into detours, illusions, and thoughts of death. You are dedicated to salvation.  You are dedicated to Life, Truth, and Love, for They are but Your salvation, and Your Brothers’ too. Be determined each day not to leave your function unfulfilled.  What better thing could You possibly do!

5 Reaffirm your determination in the shorter practice periods as well, using the original form of the idea for general application and a more specific form when needed. Remember that You are quite committed to Awakening. Some specific forms will be included in the comments. These, however, are merely suggestions. It is not the particular words you use that matter.  What counts are Your intentions, Your desires, Your self-discipline.  You can do it!

1 Today’s review will cover these ideas:

 

[69] My grievances hide the light of the world in me.

For grievances are dark and dingy things that do not like the Light.  They hide from It and hide It from You.  For You cannot see two opposing things, both at the same time.  Nor can You think them.

2 My grievances show me what is not there and hide from me what I would see.  You must choose Reality or dreaming. Recognizing this, what do I want my grievances for?  Are they worth it to be ‘right’. Good question! They keep me in darkness and hide the light. Grievances and light cannot go together, but light and vision must be joined for me to see. To see, I must lay grievances aside. Every single one, for none can I hold on to and cherish. I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed.  I am committed to seeing through the eyes of Love when I look at My Others.

3 Specific applications of this idea might be made in these forms:

4 Let me not use this as a block to sight.  No matter how put out I am feeling.  I can always change My mind about it.
The light of the world will shine all this away. 
Truth summarily dismisses  error.
I have no need for this. I want to see. 
The payoff for being angry with a Brother or Sister sure isn’t vision!

[70] My salvation comes from me.  No-One can do it for Me.  I must have the self-discipline to watch and correct My thoughts.  For salvation is but right thinking leading to right Be-ing.

5 Today I will recognize where my salvation is. Remember that I said in Bible times about the Kingdom that it was not “Lo here and lo there, but that it is within.” That is, within consciousness. In Your mind, for all things are Mind. It is in me because its Source is there. It has not left its Source, and so it cannot have left my mind. I will not look for it outside myself. Nor will I look within My body, for all things are mental. It is not found outside and then brought in. But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see will but reflect the light that shines in me and in itself.  The Light that shines as Me and as Itself is Our Divinity, Our Holiness.  And It is brighter even than the sun, yet can You look on It without being blinded, for this Light is wholly benign.

6 These forms of the idea are suitable for more specific application:

7 Let this not tempt me to look away from me for my salvation.  Salvation – Life, Truth and Love, are what I really am, awaiting My acceptance.
I will not let this interfere with my awareness of the Source of my salvation.
Each trying situation, each difficult person, can lead Me to God within for My salvation.
This has no power to remove salvation from me. 
Quite contrarily to what I have believed before, it can be My salvation.

Thank you Dear Brother]
