CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON SIXTY-FOURTRANSCRIBER’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 not forget my function.
My function is Love and Its extension. There is no other reason to be here, ‘though I thought there was. It seemed to Me that I was here to please Myself as much as possible and to get all that was due to Me. Could I have been more mistaken!
1 Today’s idea is merely another way of saying, “Let me not wander into temptation.” The purpose of the world you see is to obscure your function of forgiveness and provide you with a justification for forgetting it. It is the temptation to abandon God and His Son, taking on a physical appearance. It is this which the body’s eyes look upon.
In other words, it is the lack of willingness to Love that keeps You in the dream, going round, either in vicious cycles of self-centeredness or self-righteousness. In this manner You abandon God, Yourself, and Your Brother.
Will You continue to be this? For both I and the Holy Spirit are coming to You constantly, and We’re suggesting that You choose again.
For You have opted for the self-indulgent weakness of the ego, with all its attendant misery; and We are offering the strength of Christ to You instead.
Christ stands for Love, no matter what: “Father I forgive them for They know not what They do.” With that little word left out, it makes the Father seem punishing, unforgiving. Oh no, never. It is the separated Son that needs to learn forgiveness, because S/He has forgotten how to Love. In every situation, each instant, let Me remind You.
Hear My loving Voice: Brother, choose again. Sister, choose again. This time choose for Love. Forgive Your Brother. Forgive Your Sister. … And forgive Yourself.
2 Nothing the body’s eyes seem to see can be anything but a form of temptation, – and God leads You not into temptation, but, instead, delivers You from evil. – since this was the purpose of the body itself. – The temptation to find a use other than Love for Your Brother is antithetic to Your Function, which is only Love. – Yet we have learned that the Holy Spirit has another use for all the illusions you have made, and therefore He sees another purpose in them. To the Holy Spirit, the world is a place where you learn to forgive yourself what you think of as your sins. – The ones You project out on Your Brother. – In this perception, the physical appearance of temptation becomes the spiritual recognition of salvation.
Your willingness to allow the sinlessness of Your Brother shows You Your own God-given Innocence. For the Gifts You give become Yours as well.
3 To review our last few lessons, your function here is to be the light of the world, a function given you by God. It is only the arrogance of the ego that leads you to question this and only the fear of the ego that induces you to regard yourself as unworthy of the task assigned to you by God Himself.
These are ego ploys to keep You dreaming. God gives You the freedom to ignore them: these suggestions that You are unable. He knows that You are equal to the job.
You are not asked to do this without help. Right this very instant He is Be-ing You in all of Your Holy Perfection. This is a constant on which You may rely with confidence. You are not alone. God is always Here. God is always Now. Just reach out and trust.
4 The world’s salvation awaits your forgiveness, because through it does the Son of God escape from all illusions and thus from all temptation. The Son of God is you. Only by fulfilling the function given you by God will you be happy. That is because your function is to be happy by using the means by which happiness becomes inevitable.
Love God – which is really loving Good – with all Your heart and soul and might and mind, and Your Neighbour as Yourself. This is the way to happiness and peace, both exquisite and inviolable.
To the ego mindset, this sounds like Superman, something out of a comic strip. Yes, with one great exception: there is no kryptonite to touch the Son of God. Harm seems to exist only in dreams, which are temporal, and without reality.
The son of man, run by an ego, is a misperception. The Son of God is Real and Eternal. Sister, choose again. Brother, choose again. This time choose what’s Real.
5 There is no other way. Therefore every time you choose whether or not to fulfill your function, you are really choosing whether to be happy or not. Let us remember this today. Let us remind ourselves of it in the morning and again at night and all through the day as well.
Choose to be happy. You can always choose. Choose for happiness.
Think You that I am repetitive? Look around the travesty of Heaven that the ego creates continuously. Don’t You think it needs to be corrected?
6 Prepare yourself in advance for all the decisions you will make today by remembering that they are all really very simple. Each one will lead to happiness or unhappiness. Can such a simple decision really be difficult to make? Let not the form of the decision deceive you. Complexity of form does not imply complexity of content. It is impossible that any decision on earth can have a content different from just this one simple choice. That is the only choice the Holy Spirit sees. Therefore it is the only choice there is.
If I’m not willing to see the Son of God, I’ve not yet forgiven Myself nor forgiven Others, for I’m choosing to continue dreaming.
7 Today, then, let us practice with these thoughts:
8 Let me not forget my function.
Let me not try to substitute mine for God’s.
Let me forgive and be happy.
9 At least once devote ten or 15 minutes to reflecting on this with closed eyes. Related thoughts will come to help you if you remember the crucial importance of your function to you and to the world.
Do I really think this is a hardship???
10 In the frequent applications of today’s idea to be made throughout the day, devote several minutes to reviewing these thoughts and then to thinking about them and about nothing else. This will be difficult at first, particularly since you are not proficient in the mind discipline which it requires. – And yet You can be. I have faith in You. – You may need to repeat “Let me not forget my function” quite often, to help you concentrate.
11 Two forms of shorter practice periods are required. At times, do the exercises with your eyes closed, trying to concentrate on the thoughts you are applying. At other times keep your eyes open after reviewing the thoughts and look slowly and unselectively about you, telling yourself:
12 This is the world it is my function to save.
The very fact that You are being asked to do this should free You from any fear or despair You might feel about the world situation. God is giving You a concrete solution.
Accept it with joy and inspiration!
[Thank you Dear Brother]
