CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON EIGHTY-ONETRANSCRIBER’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.
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 Our ideas for review today are:
 I am the light of the world.
It is so long since I knew Myself as holy. Not just way before any childhood I could remember, but way before there were any things called ‘children’; back when all there was and is is the Son of God.
The Son of God: All of Us overflowing as the Light that lights up the Universe.
2 How holy am I, who have been given the function of lighting up the world! Let me be still before my holiness. In its calm light, let all my conflicts disappear. In its peace, let me remember who I am.
The Son of God along with All My Brothers and My Sisters.
The Son of God is Our eternal Selfhood, long before the idea of “male and female”. So much One takes as ‘given’ really isn’t. It was invented to hide Your exquisite Self.
“Holiness becomes Thy house”. What is Your “house” but where You dwell: i.e. Your Consciousness. So if You would be holy, be the Light You are, then You must watch Your thinking. This is a Course in Holiness as well as in miracles.
3 Some specific forms for applying the idea when specific difficulties seem to arise might be:
4 Let me not obscure the light of the world in me.
Let the light of the world shine through this appearance.
This shadow will vanish before the light.
 Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
From where forgiveness flows but from Your Love? Will You Love Your Brother enough to overlook His errors, hold Him as His Holy Perfection?
5 It is through accepting my function that I will see the light in me. And in this light will my function stand clear and perfectly unambiguous before my sight. My acceptance does not depend on my recognizing what my function is, for I do not yet understand forgiveness. Yet I will trust that in the light I will see it as it is.
The question is: do You prefer to Love or to be ‘right’ about Your Brother’s ‘sins’? This question goes as well to Your Brother. Each One of You shall be slow to judge and very quick to bless. Thus is Your Function.
6 Specific forms for using the idea might include:
7 Let this help me learn what forgiveness means.
Let me not separate my function from my will.
I would not use this for an alien purpose.
Love is Your natural purpose. Judgment is alien to You.
Stay Joined with Me as I teach You to Love.
Thank you Dear Brother]
