LESSON NINETY-TWOTRANSCRIBER’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.

Miracles are seen in light,
– true understanding and experience –
and light and strength are one.
Reality is the Omnipotence of God, All-Knowing.
1 The idea for today is an extension of the previous one. You do not think of light in terms of strength and darkness in terms of weakness. That is because your idea of what seeing means is tied up with the body and its eyes and brain. First, You see what You have chosen to believe; secondly, You believe Your ‘seeing’. This is why you believe that you can change what you see by keeping little bits of glass or other clear material before your eyes held in a frame or placed against the eye. For it is all about pretending that You really have control.
2 These are among the many magical beliefs that come from the conviction you are a body and the body’s eyes can see. They’re nothing but self-centered delusions. You also believe the body’s brain – and only the brain – can think. If you but understood the nature of thought, you could but laugh at this insane idea. How preposterous is this when all is only consciousness! Everything is thought! It is as if you thought you held the match that lights the sun and gives it all its warmth or that you had the universe imprisoned in your hand, securely bound until you let it go. Yet this is no more foolish than to believe the body’s eyes can see, the brain can think. Not in Your hand, but in Your mind, has Your experience of everything been tightly bound and fettered. Vision – the experience of the Universe to sight – is but Universal!
3 It is God’s strength in you that is the light in which you see, as it is His Mind with which you think. His strength denies your weakness. “His strength”, not Your own. Mark the difference. It is your weakness that sees through the body’s eyes, peering about in darkness to behold the likeness of itself-the small, the weak, the sickly and the dying, those in need, the helpless and afraid, the sad, the poor, the starving, and the joyless. These are seen through eyes which cannot see and cannot bless. For They see but nothing less than nothingness – and nothing more! – a little so-called universe that has been seemingly ‘created’ in Your minds.
4 Strength overlooks these things by seeing past appearances, to Reality. It keeps its steady gaze upon the light that lies beyond them. It unites with light, of which it is a part. This is Your coming Home, Your Re-Union. It sees itself. It brings the light in which your Self appears. In darkness you perceive a self that is not there. Your Self is All, in All, also as All.
5 Strength is the truth about you; – these true words are as music to Your ears – weakness is an idol falsely worshipped, and adored that strength may be dispelled and darkness rule where God appointed that there should be light. Would You not like a quarter – all right, a dollar! – for every time You’ve heard Another say: I’m only human! Egregious nonsense, that one is. Just an excuse for staying in the dream.
Would You keep doing that when I have come to You and said: My Brother and My Sister, please choose again.
Strength comes from truth and shines with light its Source has given it; This is You of which I speak here. Son of God You are not the weakness You’re pretending to keep up the fiction of the dream. weakness reflects the darkness of its maker. You are not really like the creature which scurries to keep hiding when You move a rock it’s under. For it is a thing that does not like the Light. It is sick and looks on sickness, which is like itself. It wishes but to keep perpetuating its condition. God’s belovèd One! Holy Son of God! Surely You’re not this!
6 Truth is a savior and can only will for happiness and peace for everyone. It gives its strength to everyone who asks, in limitless supply. It stands on holy ground and You stand with It, belovèd Son! It sees that lack in anyone would be a lack in all, and so it gives its light that all may see and benefit as one. You’re not separate from the Reality of any Thing! For You, too, are Real. Its strength is shared that it may bring to all the miracle in which they will unite in purpose and forgiveness and in love. Truth come to Light always brings miracles, which come from Vision.
7 Weakness, which looks in darkness, cannot see a purpose in forgiveness and in love. Love brings with It only Reality, which is synonym to Equality. Weakness chooses to be only special. It sees all others different from itself and nothing in the world that it would share. For it loves to look out for Number One! Only Number One! It judges and condemns but does not love. In darkness it remains to hide itself and dreams that it is strong and conquering, a victor over limitations that but grow in darkness to enormous size. It loves to aggrandize its puny self. It fears and it attacks and hates itself, and darkness covers everything it sees, leaving its dreams as fearful as itself. No miracles are here, but only hate. It separates itself from what it sees, – would You continue to be this weak thing, when You don’t have to? – while light and strength perceive themselves as one. When You could be this in but a heartbeat.
8 The light of strength is not the light you see. It does not change and flicker and go out. It is steady constancy, as described in Revelation: “there is no night there”. It does not shift from night to day and back to darkness till the morning comes again. What blocks the Light of the sun in the human dreaming but the belief that Your earth is ‘matter’. For Your sun is not a match for the Light of Strength. The light of strength is constant, sure as love, forever glad to give itself away because it cannot give but to itself. So, too, would You give if You understood Your Brother was also Yourself as well. No one can ask in vain to share its sight, – Love’s eyes but do belong to Every One – and none who enters its abode can leave without a miracle before his eyes and strength and light abiding in his heart. All You need be is quite willing to see.
9 The strength in you will offer you the light and guide your seeing,. so you do not dwell on idle shadows that the body’s eyes provide for self-deception. – You wonder what is the connection between strength and light, and I’ll gladly tell You. Strength is a mental state necessary to persevere until the Light unfolds Itself to You. And You now see correctly. One of strength’s uses. Strength and light unite in you, and where they meet, your Self stands ready to embrace you as Its own. For Your holy Self is All-inclusive. Such is the meeting place we try today to find and rest in, for the peace of God is where your Self, His Son, is waiting now to meet itself again and be as one. This is a long overdue Re-Union. Yet has the Self longed for Your return for so many eons. And You have longed as well, although You’ve known not for What You longed; believing it to be some kind of special relationship. Yet is each one a longing for the Self.
10 Let us give 20 minutes twice today to join this meeting. Let yourself be brought unto your Self. Its strength will be the light in which the gift of sight is given you. Leave, then, the dark a little while today, and we will practice seeing in the light, closing the body’s eyes and asking truth to show us how to find the meeting place of self and Self, where light and strength are one. For Self – Light, strength – are to be found within. Although the dream tells You quite differently, all things needful – yes, Reality – are to be found within.
11 After the morning meeting, we will use the day in preparation for the time at night when we will meet again in hope and trust. Let us repeat as often as we can the idea for today and recognize that we are being introduced to sight – We’ve been inly blind – and led away from darkness to the light, where only miracles can be perceived. And miracles do show forth – right within the dream – the Power of Reality. And We say thank You, Father, for this Gift!
[Thank you Dear Brother]
