CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON SEVENTY-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.
There is no will but God’s.
Can the Ray turn on the Sun and say: “I’ve got a different purpose than to shine today. See You later! I’m gonna do My own important thing. I’m a special Ray!’
It’s very obvious to see that the idea of it is quite preposterous! Yet no more than the sleeping Son of God’s belief that S/He can act apart from God, and then go do it.
This is nothing but a delusion, almost universal!
You’re asking why? Has the Ray any Light that comes not from its Oneness with the Sun?
Now, truly, all things come from God. Yet in this dream of separation, does the Sun seem to be the Source of the Rays; just as Dreamers think They really source their Children. This is an analogy that You can clearly see and thus, clearly understand. So We will use it. Please keep it in mind. “Remember, ideas leave not their Source”; one idea cannot source another.
1 The idea for today can be regarded as the central thought toward which all our exercises are directed. God’s is the only will. God the only Source. There is no other, and no other need. When you have recognized this, you have recognized that your will is His. Again, can the Ray exist apart from the Sun? No. Not One. Just so it’s the same with the sleeping Son. The belief that conflict is possible has gone. For harmony has come to fill that space. Peace has replaced the strange idea that you are torn by conflicting goals. Could You really want to listen to the ego? That “murderer from the beginning” as I had early termed that selfish mindset. Nor has it made improvement over eons. We do either have the mind of God or else We do have nothing real. As an expression of the Will of God, you have no goal but His. Why would You want to when His Will and His Mind are always Good.
2 There is great peace in today’s idea. For it’s consistent with Reality And the exercises for today are directed towards finding it. The idea itself is wholly true. Therefore it cannot give rise to illusions. So the illusions that You seem to see are but narrowed vision, as if – perhaps – You squinted or You closed one eye to try to see things differently. You may succeed in skewing Your perception, yet the things still remain the same! So are You, Son of God who thinks S/He is only an ego. Without illusions, – nothing but Reality can You see – conflict is impossible. For Reality is but harmony. I will repeat this until You get it! Let us try to recognize this today and experience the peace this recognition brings. For Reality is always peaceful.
Be still some moments till You let that in.
Reality must be always peaceful.
3 Begin the longer practice periods by repeating these thoughts several times, slowly and with firm determination to understand what they mean and to hold them in mind:
4 There is no will but God’s. The Universe holds no other power from New York to Timbuctu to unknown galaxies stretching to Infinity.
I cannot be in conflict. Beyond Infinity? Just Harmony.
5 Then spend several minutes in adding some related thoughts, such as:
6 I am at peace. For God is Peace, and What God is, I am.
Nothing can disturb me. My will is God’s.
My will and God’s are one.
God wills peace for His Son. God is Peace Itself; therefore, so is the Son, of Whom I’m One.
7 During this introductory phase, be sure to deal quickly with any conflict thoughts that may cross your mind. Tell yourself immediately:
8 There is no will but God’s.
These conflict thoughts are meaningless. For God’s Will is Peace, and I cannot – would not even want – a will apart from His. God and I are One.
This fact – both understood and accepted – heals every problem that the separated Son is heir to, from foolish allegiance to the ego.
As I said 2000 years ago – (I am consistent!) – You can’t serve two masters. You will Love one and thus hate the other.1 You must make a choice. This is why I say to You: Choose again. And each Lesson offers You this opportunity. Why not take it? You can only be blessed by it.
9 If there is one conflict area which seems particularly difficult to resolve, single it out for special consideration. Think about it briefly but very specifically, identify the particular person or persons and the situation or situations involved, and tell yourself:
10 There is no will but God’s.
I share it with Him.
My conflicts about _____ cannot be real. God feels not this way about Him, and thinking I can feel apart from God – from Good – is but the dream of separation. It is pure delusion! I can make a different choice, and right now. I can choose God instead of the ego.
11 After you have cleared your mind in this way, close your eyes and try to experience the peace to which your reality entitles you. Sink into it, and feel it closing around you. This is not claustrophobic, but, instead, is liberating! Why not give it a try? You need not fear to. I’ll hold Your hand. For I promised You I’d never leave You. I keep promises! I’m still here with You. That is My eternal promise to You, asleep or Awake. (referring to You)
There may be some temptation to mistake these attempts for withdrawal, but the difference is easily detected. If you are succeeding, you will feel a deep sense of joy and an increased alertness rather than a feeling of drowsiness and enervation. Joy characterizes peace. By this experience will you recognize that you have reached it.
Do You often feel tired? Grievances can be exhausting. Dropping them in the garbage does bring great energy to You.
12 If you feel yourself slipping off into withdrawal, quickly repeat the idea for today and try again. Do this as often as necessary. Do not trust the untrustworthy ego! Remember that it is a liar, right from the beginning. It’s not a thing, but simply an abberant way of thinking. There is definite gain in refusing to allow retreat into withdrawal, even if you do not experience the peace you seek.
What is withdrawal but You withdrawing from Reality into dreaming. You’ve been in a nightmare for endless eons, caught in a time warp, for the whole concept of time is warped!
Let Me repeat this for You: You are stuck in a bizarre warp of reality that is impossible and has no validity at all! The dream is nothing new; just a limited view of God and You that You are projecting onto Your Brothers. And They are projecting it on to You. And so You do reinforce each Other in all Your dreaming. You see Him as ‘human’ as He sees You.
And as I’ve said before: when the blind lead the blind, both fall into the ditch. Better to open up Your eyes, which is also known as Awakening.
13 In the shorter periods, which should be undertaken at regular and predetermined intervals today, say to yourself:
14 There is no will but God’s.
I seek His peace today. God wills it for Me; thus must it be available to Me. I think I’ll try this!
15 Then try to find what you are seeking. A minute or two every half-hour, with eyes closed if possible, would be well spent on this today.
Thank you Dear Brother]
