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.

L e s s o n  182

I will be still a moment and go home.  For in the sweet quietness, I now can hear the Voice for God showing Me the way. Gladly I follow.  For I am like a child to the Reality of Spirit.

 
1 This world you seem to live in is not home to you.  it’s not even real, being a nightmare. And somewhere in your mind you know that this is true. A memory of home keeps haunting you, as if there were a place that called you to return, – You feel it in the yearning of Your heart for something better than this awful world – although you do not recognize the Voice nor what it is the Voice reminds you of.  Still it’s familiar, and brings a longing for a kinder life; something remembered so very faintly, a sweet memory that You can’t pinpoint. Yet still you feel an alien here, from somewhere all unknown.  Like a stranger in an even stranger land. Nothing so definite that you could say with certainty you are an exile here.  It’s but a feeling that never leaves You.  Just a persistent feeling, sometimes not more than a tiny throb, at other times hardly remembered, actively dismissed, but surely to return to mind again.  Bringing longing back for something better.
 
2 No one but knows whereof we speak. The Whole of You kept secret from Yourself. Yet some try to put by their suffering in games they play to occupy their time and keep their sadness from them. Others will deny that they are sad and do not recognize their tears at all. Your husband was one of them.  Said to the transcriber and also many Others. Still others will maintain that what we speak of is illusion, not to be considered more than but a dream. Yet who in simple honesty, without defensiveness and self-deception, would deny he understands the words we speak?
Sometimes they bring that chord of music We have called the Forgotten Song to mind; then comes again longing.
 
Only in great peace are You free from it, although it shows itself in many hidden ways: compulsions to drink, shop, drug, win, be quote ‘successful’ unquote, watch endless tv are a few.  The list is endless.
 
3 We speak today for everyone who walks this world, for he is not at home. He goes uncertainly about in endless search, seeking in darkness what he cannot find, not recognizing what it is he seeks. A thousand homes he makes, yet none contents his restless mind. He does not understand he builds in vain. The home he seeks can not be made by him. There is no substitute for Heaven. All he ever made was hell.  Hell is but a word for separation.  And Your world looks more like hell every day.  How can You have “peace on earth” when the thing You call ‘earth’ is hell?
 
4 Perhaps you think it is your childhood home that you would find again. The childhood of your body and its place of shelter are a memory now so distorted that you merely hold a picture of a past that never happened.  Still, You can go Home again; Home is just not to Your childhood. Yet there is a Child in you Who seeks His Father’s house and knows that He is alien here. This Childhood is eternal, with an innocence that will endure forever. This childhood is not immaturity, but is innocence.  There’s a difference. Where this Child shall go is holy ground. It is His holiness that lights up Heaven and that brings to earth the pure reflection of the light above, wherein are earth and Heaven joined as one.
 
5 It is this Child in you your Father knows as His own Son. It is this Child Who knows His Father. He desires to go home so deeply, so unceasingly, His voice cries unto you to let Him rest a while. He does not ask for more than just a few instants of respite-just an interval in which He can return to breathe again the holy air that fills His Father’s house. You are His home as well. He will return. But give Him just a little time to be Himself within the peace that is His home, resting in silence and in peace and love. Before He returns to the prison You have made for Him in the midst of Heaven.  He longs to be free to be Himself, this time eternally.
 
6 This Child needs your protection. He is far from home. He is so little that He seems so easily shut out, His tiny Voice so readily obscured, His calls for help almost unheard amid the grating sounds and harsh and rasping noises of the world. Yet does He know that in you still abides His sure protection. You will fail Him not. He will go home, and you along with Him.
7 This Child is your defenselessness, your strength. He trusts in you. He came because He knew you would not fail. He whispers of His home unceasingly to you. For He would bring you back with Him, that He Himself might stay and not return again where He does not belong and where He lives an outcast in a world of alien thoughts. His patience has no limits. He will wait until you hear His gentle Voice within you, calling you to let Him go in peace along with you to where He is at home and you with Him.  You could call Him Christ, or Holy Spirit, or by Your own name.  All are accurate.  And All long for Your return to freedom.
 
8 When you are still an instant, quieting Your restless, troubled thinking, when the world recedes from you, when valueless ideas – all about the world – cease to have value in your restless mind, then will you hear His Voice.  Its gentle kindness.  So poignantly He calls to you that you will not resist Him longer. In that instant, He will take you to His home, which is Your Consciousness as well as His, and you will stay with Him in perfect stillness, silent and at peace, beyond all words, untouched by fear and doubt, sublimely certain that you are at home.  And very happy.
 
9 Rest with Him frequently today. For He was willing to become a little child that you might learn of Him how strong is he who comes without defenses, offering only love’s messages to those who think he is their enemy. He holds the might of Heaven in His hand and calls them friend, and gives His strength to them that they may see He would be Friend to them. He asks but they protect Him, for His home is far away, and He will not return to it alone.
10 Christ is reborn as but a little Child each time a wanderer would leave his home. For he must learn that what he would protect is but this Child, Who is quite ageless, Who comes defenseless and Who is protected by defenselessness. Go home with Him from time to time today. You are as much an alien here as He.  You didn’t know that, yet could You feel it.
 
11 Take time today to lay aside your shield which profits nothing and lay down the spear and sword you raised against an enemy without existence. Christ has called you friend and brother. And You are Christ as He. He has even come to you to ask your help in letting Him go home completed and completely. He has come as does a little child who must beseech his father for protection and for love.  Do You see how much He Loves You, how much He would have You Home? He rules the universe, and yet He asks unceasingly that you return with Him and take illusions as your gods no more.  You are that important to All of Us.  For Heaven is incomplete without You.
 

12 You have not lost your innocence. It’s Yours forever. It is for this you yearn. This is your heart’s desire.  Your precious Self is the Pearl without price.  This is the Voice you hear, and this the Call which cannot be denied. The holy Child remains with you. His home is yours. Today He gives you His defenselessness, and you accept it in exchange for all the toys of battle you have made. And now the way is open, and the journey has an end in sight at last. Be still a moment and go home with Him, and be at peace a while.  And if You so choose, not for just a while, but forever!

 

INTRODUCTION to Lessons 181 – 200

I181:1 Our next few lessons make a special point of firming up your willingness to make your weak commitment strong, your scattered goals blend into one intent. – All commitment does start with this one thing: just the little willingness to do it, whatever it takes.  So even if You do slip and fall, You get right up again. – You are not asked for total dedication all the time, as yet. But you are asked to practice now in order to attain the sense of peace such unified commitment will bestow, if only intermittently. It is experiencing this which makes it sure that you will give your total willingness to following the way the course sets forth.  How did He segue from the little willingness to total?!  (He is laughing hard!)  Only the ego would ask that question!  By now, don’t You think that You should know Me!  Give Me an inch of good, and I’ll give You back a mile of it.  Give Me a drop of Love, and I’ll return to You an ocean.

With what are We dealing but the Divine Qualities of God.  Life, Truth and Love.  Spirit, Soul and Mind.  Holy Divine Principle, Its Joy and Peace.  How precious are the attributes of God.  They are Your treasure.  And where Your treasure is, there is Your Love.

2 Our lessons now are geared specifically to widening horizons – by loosening the ego’s stranglehold that it has on You – and direct approaches to the special blocks which keep your vision narrow and too limited to let you see the value of our goal.  What has it been that has severely narrowed Your horizons?

Well, what else but sir and lady ego?

We are attempting now to lift these blocks, however briefly. Words alone can not convey the sense of liberation which their lifting brings. – Yes, that day that Helen had, recounted in “Absence From Felicity”1 is a perfect example.  Every day – and every moment can and will be like that! – But the experience of freedom and of peace that comes as you give up your tight control of what you see speaks for itself. Your motivation will be so intensified that words become of little consequence. You will be sure of what you want and what is valueless.  The ego will attempt to deter Your progress, tell You that You can’t sustain such an experience.  And yet the ego is always lying.  Do not believe it.  Tell it to shut up, and really mean it!

3 And so we start our journey beyond words by concentrating first on what impedes our progress still. Experience of what exists beyond defensiveness remains beyond achievement while it is denied. It may be there, but you cannot accept its presence.  For You are quite defended against It.  And what does live in the Silence but experience of perfect Love and safety. So we now attempt to go past all defenses for a little while each day. No more than this is asked because no more than this is needed. It will be enough to guarantee the rest will come.  One Holy Moment is but a promise of All which await Your invitation!

L e s s o n  181

I trust my brothers, who are one with me.  Yes all those Others who do seem so foreign to You, those billions upon billions.  Who could possibly deal with so many?  It’s just outrageous.  It’s hard enough to deal with My husband or wife, the boss, or the kids, and all of those kissin’ cousins!  God should have stopped creation after Me!  Thus speaks the ego.

Okay Brother, then teach Me how to trust.
Thoughts like those above don’t begin to understand Our Oneness.  So pay attention.
 
1 Trusting your brothers is essential to establishing and holding up your faith in your ability to transcend doubt and lack of sure conviction in yourself.  Although You don’t yet realize it, Your Brother is but One with You; this is true of each One of Your Brothers.  Now You see why the dream is called the separation!  You think You are quite separate from God and from each Other. When you attack a brother, you proclaim that he is limited by what you have perceived in him. You do not look beyond his errors. Rather, they are magnified, becoming blocks to your awareness of the Self that lies beyond your own mistakes and past his seeming sins as well as yours.  You are pretending that He is no part of You.  God forbid!  ‘I’m nothing like Him!’  The ego is offended at such a possibility!
2 Perception has a focus. It is this which gives consistency to what you see. You but see what the ego desires You to see to fit with its agenda. It wishes to be right and it demands to be in control. Change but this focus, – by yielding to God – and what you behold will change accordingly. Now change too Your mind about what You be, and what You be changes accordingly. Your vision now will shift to give support to the intent which has replaced the one you held before. Remove your focus on your brother’s sins, – in spite their so compelling nature – and you experience the peace that comes from faith in sinlessness. For His Innocence becomes Yours as well. This faith receives its only sure support from what you see in others past their sins. For their mistakes, if focused on, are witnesses to sins in you. And you will not transcend their sight and see the sinlessness that lies beyond.  Recall that what You’re experiencing is not Reality. it is dreaming.  Don’t take the story quite so seriously!  It’s but a dream.
3 Therefore, in practicing today, we first let all such little focuses – for they are petty – give way to our great need to let our sinlessness become apparent. We instruct our minds that it is this we seek and only this, for just a little while. We do not care about our future goals, and what we saw an instant previous has no concern for us within this interval of time wherein we practice changing our intent. Now experience. We seek for innocence and nothing else. We seek for it with no concern but now.  Now hear God’s verdict on You: not guilty!
4 A major hazard to success has been involvement with your past and future goals. You have been quite preoccupied with how extremely different the goals this course is advocating are from those you held before. And you have also been dismayed by the depressing and restricting thought that, even if you should succeed, you will inevitably lose your way again. (So speaks the ego! You know that voice well; it cares not for You. Why do You listen?) How could this matter? For the past is gone, the future but imagined.  Choose to be here now. These concerns are but defenses against present change of focus in perception. Nothing more.  All the blocks You raise are but to keep You dreaming.  They bring no happiness to You.
 
5 We lay these pointless limitations by a little while. We do not look to past beliefs, and what we will believe will not intrude upon us now. We enter in the time of practicing with one intent-to look upon the sinlessness within. We recognize that we have lost this goal if anger blocks our way in any form. And if a brother’s sins occur to us, our narrowed focus will restrict our sight and turn our eyes upon our own mistakes, which we will magnify and call our “sins.”  And why is this so?  You are not separate from Your Brother.  Again, this belief that You are is why it’s called the separation. You’re One as God and with every Brother.  We’re One as God; all Others included.
6 So, for a little while, without regard to past or future, – stay right in the Now – should such blocks arise, we will transcend them with instructions to our minds to change their focus, as we say:
7 It is not this that I would look upon.  For I have eyes of Love and not the ego’s
I trust my brothers, who are one with me.
Such is the Nature of Reality.
8 And we will also use these thoughts to keep us safe throughout the day. We do not seek for long range goals. As each obstruction seems to block the vision of our sinlessness, we seek but for surcease an instant from the misery the focus upon sin will bring, and uncorrected will remain.  You can always change Your mind; remember, I’m here to help You!  You are not doing this alone!  I’m here.
 
9 Nor do we ask for fantasies. For what we seek to look upon is really there. And as our focus goes beyond mistakes, we will behold a wholly sinless world.  Can You imagine this?  A scene so lovely! When seeing this is all we want to see, when this is all we seek for in the name of true perception, are the eyes of Christ inevitably ours.  As You read the daily news on Your computer, do You not long to heal the world and find Us All suddenly in Heaven?  Can You imagine the relief and happiness You have to find that it was only but a nightmare.  Albeit intricate and convincing. And the love He feels for us becomes our own as well. This will become the only thing we see reflected in the world and in ourselves.  Love is the only Presence everywhere.
10 The world which once proclaimed our sins becomes the proof that we are sinless. And our love for everyone we look upon attests to our remembrance of the holy Self Which knows no sin and never could conceive of anything without Its sinlessness.  Now do ask Yourself: am I willing to have this experience instead of guilt? Give the right answer! We seek for this remembrance as we turn our minds to practicing today. We look neither ahead nor backwards. We look straight into the present. And we give our trust to the experience we ask for now. Our sinlessness is but the Will of God.  i.e. It is Truth. This instant is our willing one with His.  Allow this happiness and peace to come.  You can just let it.

REVIEW V

L e s s o n  180

God is but Love, and therefore so am I. Let Me really let this sink deeply into My consciousness.

If I am wholly Love then I need not go looking high and low, ever here and over there, for It.  Love is right at hand, “closer than breathing”1

[169] By grace I live. By grace I am released.  What is this grace We speak of here?  Some special favour given You by God, or is it but Your Nature?  Your Reality is the right answer. Your Life is – here and now – forever.  This Truth frees You from dreams.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  Brother, what does it mean to be Love at every instant?  To do it, You need bt be attentive to the Holy Spirit.

[170] There is no cruelty in God and none in me.  Is this not another way of saying that You must be Love, ever-attentive to Your Brother, like Your Father-Mother?

When I’m listening there is no inadvertent cruelty, surely not from Me. For God is never anything but kind.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  This is the grand Truth for Eternity.

REVIEW V

R5:1 We now review again. This time we are ready to give more effort and more time to what we undertake. We recognize we are preparing for another phase of understanding. – We realize that the “little willingness” is crucial.  Without Your willingness We cannot go far; with it We wake securely to the experience of Heaven right where We are. – We would take this step completely, that we may go on again more certain, more sincere, with faith upheld more surely. Our footsteps have not been unwavering, and doubts have made us walk uncertainly and slowly on the road this course sets forth. But now we hasten on, for we approach a greater certainty, a firmer purpose and a surer goal.  It is the happiness and peace that comes to You as You begin Awakening, and it flows from the little willingness for which I’ve asked You.

I’m confident that You will give it, for it brings such good to You.  It’s a very high return on such a small investment.

2 Steady our feet, our Father; let our doubts be quiet and our holy minds be still, and speak to us. We have no words to give to You. We would but listen to Your Word and make it ours. Lead our practicing as does a father lead a little child along a way he does not understand. Yet does he follow, sure that he is safe because his father leads the way for him.  Recall My ancient words: “You must become as little children.”1

3 So do we bring our practicing to You. And if we stumble, You will raise us up. – You can count on God and Me and, of course, the Holy Spirit.  We stand by to lift You ere “You dash Your foot against a stone.”2   Our Love for You is, as yet, sweet beyond Your understanding. – If we forget the way, we count upon Your sure remembering. We wander off, but You will not forget to call us back. Quicken our footsteps now, that we may walk more certainly and quickly unto You. And we accept the Word You offer us to unify our practicing, as we review the thoughts that You have given us.  How faithful You are; how much We are loved!

4 This is the thought which should precede the thoughts that we review. Each one but clarifies some aspect of this thought or helps it be more meaningful, more personal and true, and more descriptive of the holy Self we share and now prepare to know again:

5 God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  God is the Source of all that I may be: a Fountain that is inexhaustible!

6 This Self alone knows love. This Self alone is perfectly consistent in Its thoughts, knows Its Creator, understands Itself, is perfect in Its knowledge and Its love, and never changes from Its constant state of union with Its Father and Itself.  This is What I really am for eternity!

7 And it is This that waits to meet us at the journey’s ending. And yet It walks beside Us as well, taking every step that We do, lifting Us before We stumble.

Every step we take brings us a little nearer. This review will shorten time immeasurably if we keep in mind that This remains our goal, and as we practice, it is This to which we are approaching. Let us raise our hearts from dust to life as we remember This is promised us, and that this course was sent to open up the path of light to us, and teach us, step by step, how to return to the eternal Self we thought we lost.  Remember!  This Self has been kept quite safe and whole for You, as the Holy Spirit.  How God does Love You!

8 I take the journey with you. For I share your doubts and fears a little while, that you may come to me who recognize the road by which all fears and doubts are overcome. We walk together. I must understand uncertainty and pain, although I know they have no meaning. Standing ready to heal them; I await Your invitation.

Yet a savior must remain with those he teaches, seeing what they see, but still retaining in his mind the way that led him out and now will lead you out with him. God’s Son is crucified until you walk along the road with me.  Don’t You prefer Love to crucifixion?  You know that I do.

9 My resurrection comes again each time I lead a brother safely to the place at which the journey ends and is forgot. I am renewed each time a brother learns there is a way from misery and pain. I am reborn each time a brother’s mind turns to the light in him and looks for me. I have forgotten no one. Help me now to lead you back to where the journey was begun, to make another choice with me.  “My yoke is easy, and My burden light.”3

10 Release me as you practice once again the thoughts I brought to you from Him Who sees your bitter need and knows the answer God has given Him. – Who is this “Me” of which I speak but Christ as You, a.k.a the Holy Spirit. – Together we review these thoughts. Together we devote our time and effort to them. And together we will teach them to our brothers. God would not have Heaven incomplete. It waits for you as I do. I am incomplete without your part in me. And as I am made whole, we go together to our ancient home, prepared for us before time was and kept unchanged by time, immaculate and safe, as it will be at last, when time is done.  For I am just as You were before the separation.  The Holiness You have attributed to Me is Yours as well.  It waits patiently for You to claim It.

11 Let this review be then your gift to me. For this alone I need-that you will hear the words I speak and give them to the world.   You are My representative to those whose hearts are hardened, who will not hear Me. By Your Love and clarity, their adamancy – their hard-heartedness can be melted gently away.  Perhaps it came from unkindness, so do be kind to all Your Brothers, Your Sisters.

You are my voice, my eyes, my feet, my hands, through which I save the world. – Thus this is an opportunity to think within Your heart: What would Jesus do? What would Jesus say? For My dear Brothers and Sisters, We All do share but One Self. – The Self from Which I call to you is but your own. To Him we go together. Take your brother’s hand, for this is not a way we walk alone. In him I walk with you and you with me. Our Father wills His Son be one with Him. What lives but must not then be one with you?  When You do read in the news of violence, corruption and hatred, be slow to condemn, but rather pray for Awakening for Every One.

12 Let this review become a time in which we share a new experience for you, yet one as old as time, and older still.  It starts with Our Oneness, as You begin to recall Who and What You – and All Our Brothers – really are.

Hallowed your name. Your glory undefiled forever. Kept safe for You as the Holy Spirit. – And your wholeness now complete, as God established it. It has not changed, and now You are changing: returning back now to Your Sanity. – You are His Son, completing His extension in your own. We practice but an ancient truth we knew before illusion seemed to claim the world. And we remind the world that it is free of all illusions every time we say,

13 God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  And then We seek to live the Truth of Love with every Brother.

14 With this we start each day of our review. With this we start and end each period of practice time. And with this thought we sleep, to waken once again with these same words upon our lips to greet another day. – God is but Love, and so am I!  We still Our minds to ask the Holy Spirit’s help to always live this. – No thought that we review but we surround with it and use the thoughts to hold it up before our minds and keep it clear in our remembrance throughout the day. – I am the Love of God in Expression. – And thus when we have finished this review, we will have recognized the words we speak are true.  This Love fills Us with awe and gratitude that God is ever Be-ing Us as Love.

15 Yet are the words but aids and to be used, except at the beginning and the end of practice periods, but to recall the mind as needed to its purpose.  – Remember to be ever Living Love. – We place faith in the experience that comes from practice, not the means we use. We wait for the experience and recognize that it is only here conviction lies. We use the words, and try and try again to go beyond them to their meaning, which is far beyond their sound. – We will not use ‘I tried!’ as an excuse for failure, but will persevere until We reach Our goal and We are successful! – The sound grows dim and disappears as we approach the Source of meaning. It is here that we find rest.  This rest is not the unconscious slumber of the world but such joyous Living Peace!

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  And this Love is but Life Itself, for as goes the hymn: “Love alone is Life.”1  The Love You extend to All is the Substance of Your very Be-ing.

[167] There is one life, and that I share with God.  Not just Life but Love, so We may then sayL There is One Love , and that I share with God.  Let Yourself really begin to feel that a ‘life’ that seems apart from God isn’t really Life at all.

Nor is Your sense of ‘life’ that is separate from Your Others.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  Since God is Love then must Your Love truly flow from God , not from Your ‘human’ feelings.

[168] Your grace is given me. I claim it now.  What is this grace that is being given Me but the endless possibilities for expressing Love.  By claiming it, I choose to share it universally with All of My Others.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  Real Love is Universal for It flows out to Every One.

REVIEW V

R5:1 We now review again. This time we are ready to give more effort and more time to what we undertake. We recognize we are preparing for another phase of understanding. – We realize that the “little willingness” is crucial.  Without Your willingness We cannot go far; with it We wake securely to the experience of Heaven right where We are. – We would take this step completely, that we may go on again more certain, more sincere, with faith upheld more surely. Our footsteps have not been unwavering, and doubts have made us walk uncertainly and slowly on the road this course sets forth. But now we hasten on, for we approach a greater certainty, a firmer purpose and a surer goal.  It is the happiness and peace that comes to You as You begin Awakening, and it flows from the little willingness for which I’ve asked You.

I’m confident that You will give it, for it brings such good to You.  It’s a very high return on such a small investment.

2 Steady our feet, our Father; let our doubts be quiet and our holy minds be still, and speak to us. We have no words to give to You. We would but listen to Your Word and make it ours. Lead our practicing as does a father lead a little child along a way he does not understand. Yet does he follow, sure that he is safe because his father leads the way for him.  Recall My ancient words: “You must become as little children.”1

3 So do we bring our practicing to You. And if we stumble, You will raise us up. – You can count on God and Me and, of course, the Holy Spirit.  We stand by to lift You ere “You dash Your foot against a stone.”2   Our Love for You is, as yet, sweet beyond Your understanding. – If we forget the way, we count upon Your sure remembering. We wander off, but You will not forget to call us back. Quicken our footsteps now, that we may walk more certainly and quickly unto You. And we accept the Word You offer us to unify our practicing, as we review the thoughts that You have given us.  How faithful You are; how much We are loved!

4 This is the thought which should precede the thoughts that we review. Each one but clarifies some aspect of this thought or helps it be more meaningful, more personal and true, and more descriptive of the holy Self we share and now prepare to know again:

5 God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  God is the Source of all that I may be: a Fountain that is inexhaustible!

6 This Self alone knows love. This Self alone is perfectly consistent in Its thoughts, knows Its Creator, understands Itself, is perfect in Its knowledge and Its love, and never changes from Its constant state of union with Its Father and Itself.  This is What I really am for eternity!

7 And it is This that waits to meet us at the journey’s ending. And yet It walks beside Us as well, taking every step that We do, lifting Us before We stumble.

Every step we take brings us a little nearer. This review will shorten time immeasurably if we keep in mind that This remains our goal, and as we practice, it is This to which we are approaching. Let us raise our hearts from dust to life as we remember This is promised us, and that this course was sent to open up the path of light to us, and teach us, step by step, how to return to the eternal Self we thought we lost.  Remember!  This Self has been kept quite safe and whole for You, as the Holy Spirit.  How God does Love You!

8 I take the journey with you. For I share your doubts and fears a little while, that you may come to me who recognize the road by which all fears and doubts are overcome. We walk together. I must understand uncertainty and pain, although I know they have no meaning. Standing ready to heal them; I await Your invitation.

Yet a savior must remain with those he teaches, seeing what they see, but still retaining in his mind the way that led him out and now will lead you out with him. God’s Son is crucified until you walk along the road with me.  Don’t You prefer Love to crucifixion?  You know that I do.

9 My resurrection comes again each time I lead a brother safely to the place at which the journey ends and is forgot. I am renewed each time a brother learns there is a way from misery and pain. I am reborn each time a brother’s mind turns to the light in him and looks for me. I have forgotten no one. Help me now to lead you back to where the journey was begun, to make another choice with me.  “My yoke is easy, and My burden light.”3

10 Release me as you practice once again the thoughts I brought to you from Him Who sees your bitter need and knows the answer God has given Him. – Who is this “Me” of which I speak but Christ as You, a.k.a the Holy Spirit. – Together we review these thoughts. Together we devote our time and effort to them. And together we will teach them to our brothers. God would not have Heaven incomplete. It waits for you as I do. I am incomplete without your part in me. And as I am made whole, we go together to our ancient home, prepared for us before time was and kept unchanged by time, immaculate and safe, as it will be at last, when time is done.  For I am just as You were before the separation.  The Holiness You have attributed to Me is Yours as well.  It waits patiently for You to claim It.

11 Let this review be then your gift to me. For this alone I need-that you will hear the words I speak and give them to the world.   You are My representative to those whose hearts are hardened, who will not hear Me. By Your Love and clarity, their adamancy – their hard-heartedness can be melted gently away.  Perhaps it came from unkindness, so do be kind to all Your Brothers, Your Sisters.

You are my voice, my eyes, my feet, my hands, through which I save the world. – Thus this is an opportunity to think within Your heart: What would Jesus do? What would Jesus say? For My dear Brothers and Sisters, We All do share but One Self. – The Self from Which I call to you is but your own. To Him we go together. Take your brother’s hand, for this is not a way we walk alone. In him I walk with you and you with me. Our Father wills His Son be one with Him. What lives but must not then be one with you?  When You do read in the news of violence, corruption and hatred, be slow to condemn, but rather pray for Awakening for Every One.

12 Let this review become a time in which we share a new experience for you, yet one as old as time, and older still.  It starts with Our Oneness, as You begin to recall Who and What You – and All Our Brothers – really are.

Hallowed your name. Your glory undefiled forever. Kept safe for You as the Holy Spirit. – And your wholeness now complete, as God established it. It has not changed, and now You are changing: returning back now to Your Sanity. – You are His Son, completing His extension in your own. We practice but an ancient truth we knew before illusion seemed to claim the world. And we remind the world that it is free of all illusions every time we say,

13 God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  And then We seek to live the Truth of Love with every Brother.

14 With this we start each day of our review. With this we start and end each period of practice time. And with this thought we sleep, to waken once again with these same words upon our lips to greet another day. – God is but Love, and so am I!  We still Our minds to ask the Holy Spirit’s help to always live this. – No thought that we review but we surround with it and use the thoughts to hold it up before our minds and keep it clear in our remembrance throughout the day. – I am the Love of God in Expression. – And thus when we have finished this review, we will have recognized the words we speak are true.  This Love fills Us with awe and gratitude that God is ever Be-ing Us as Love.

15 Yet are the words but aids and to be used, except at the beginning and the end of practice periods, but to recall the mind as needed to its purpose.  – Remember to be ever Living Love. – We place faith in the experience that comes from practice, not the means we use. We wait for the experience and recognize that it is only here conviction lies. We use the words, and try and try again to go beyond them to their meaning, which is far beyond their sound. – We will not use ‘I tried!’ as an excuse for failure, but will persevere until We reach Our goal and We are successful! – The sound grows dim and disappears as we approach the Source of meaning. It is here that we find rest.  This rest is not the unconscious slumber of the world but such joyous Living Peace!

L e s s o n  178

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  Where is Love to be found?  Is It in bodies?  No It isn’t, for body is something that You have, and it’s not what You are.  Yet We are clearly stating here that You are but holy Love Itself in action!

This is What God is.  God is not loving, some loving superman.  No, not at all.  When You let God fill Your mind, then Love does fill Your mind, right at the very same time.  You can feel that Love fill Your whole Be-ing.  And then You realize You have no Be-ing apart from Love.

Love’s dwelling place and habitation is but God Consciousness.

[165] Let not my mind deny the Thought of God.  For the holy Thought of God is but Love. And His holy Thought is sum and substance. Therefore, must Your thought as well be holy.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  Love lives as consciousness, and so Your mind is very holy.

[166] I am entrusted with the gifts of God.  Yet not to store them away and hoard them.  For to be Love, Love must be given.  It isn’t a thing, but living action!  Take Your talent for Love and let it grow!1

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  For there is no You apart from Love.  Again, Love is both Your sum and Your substance.  To Be Love as Yourself, You must see Love as Your Self.  I’m here but to introduce you to You.  You are far more than You have dreamed within the dream.  You are One of God.  As God is, You are.

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

1His point is that when We bury Our love, We have not been faithful.He’s taking over:

This parable of Mine has always seemed harsh as translation was filtered through punitive Dreamer mindsets.  It is meant as a simple statement of fact: that what You use grows; what You don’t shrivels.  If You have a packet of seeds to plant and plant them, the seeds grow into fruiting plants.  If the seeds remain in the packet, there is no fruitage.

You never forget completely how to Love.  My teachings were never meant to be punitive for I spoke only Love.  The ears that heard were not always receptive – as They still are not.  If You do not hear Love from Me, You do not hear Me.  This does not mean I don’t correct You!

Matthew 25:14-30

King James Version

Text from www.biblegateway.com

14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.

19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

(Again I say: this is a natural consequence of withholding; not a punishment, but simply a caution.  This distinction is extremely important!)

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  

[163] There is no death. The Son of God is free.  Wow!  There is no death!  Everything is Life.  I’m bound by nothing but the Love of God, and that is freedom!“

 
God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  What is Love Father?  What is Love Mother?  As Joni Mitchell wrote: “I really don’t know Love at all.”
You cannot know Love until You Be It. And You can’t Be It until You shut up the selfish ego!  For the ego wants to get love, and not to give it. Once again, why are You here in the dream? For giving or for getting?
 
[164] Now are we one with Him Who is our Source.  What does this mean?  How are We one with Him?
 
These are good questions.  For the ego mindset is not even a part of God, how much less a Oneness!  Let Us look at God.  What is Her Nature?
Well God is not flesh and bones but mentality: S/He is eternal Consciousness!
Thus must You too be Consciousness and not a body.  Can You understand Yourself as Mind, not matter?  Lesson 97 states this so clearly: I am Spirit.
It is quite freeing to be Consciousness instead of body.  You can be and do anything You think!  That’s how You dreamed and fell asleep, in that order.  First came the idea and then the experience.
Even as You sleep, You share God’s Consciousness.  From where do You think ideas for inventions come?  Great books and great poems, sculptures and paintings, and mathematics?
God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  And every true idea but flows forth from the Mind of Love.  That Mind is Your Mind too.  Just allow It.

I must understand uncertainty and pain, although I know they have no meaning. Standing ready to heal them; I await Your invitation.

Yet a savior must remain with those he teaches, seeing what they see, but still retaining in his mind the way that led him out and now will lead you out with him. God’s Son is crucified until you walk along the road with me.  Don’t You prefer Love to crucifixion?  You know that I do.

10 Release me as you practice once again the thoughts I brought to you from Him Who sees your bitter need and knows the answer God has given Him. – Who is this “Me” of which I speak but Christ as You, a.k.a the Holy Spirit. – Together we review these thoughts. Together we devote our time and effort to them. And together we will teach them to our brothers. God would not have Heaven incomplete. It waits for you as I do. I am incomplete without your part in me. And as I am made whole, we go together to our ancient home, prepared for us before time was and kept unchanged by time, immaculate and safe, as it will be at last, when time is done.  For I am just as You were before the separation.  The Holiness You have attributed to Me is Yours as well.  It waits patiently for You to claim It.

11 Let this review be then your gift to me. For this alone I need-that you will hear the words I speak and give them to the world.   You are My representative to those whose hearts are hardened, who will not hear Me. By Your Love and clarity, their adamancy – their hard-heartedness can be melted gently away.  Perhaps it came from unkindness, so do be kind to all Your Brothers, Your Sisters.

You are my voice, my eyes, my feet, my hands, through which I save the world. – Thus this is an opportunity to think within Your heart: What would Jesus do? What would Jesus say? For My dear Brothers and Sisters, We All do share but One Self. – The Self from Which I call to you is but your own. To Him we go together. Take your brother’s hand, for this is not a way we walk alone. In him I walk with you and you with me. Our Father wills His Son be one with Him. What lives but must not then be one with you?  When You do read in the news of violence, corruption and hatred, be slow to condemn, but rather pray for Awakening for Every One.

12 Let this review become a time in which we share a new experience for you, yet one as old as time, and older still.  It starts with Our Oneness, as You begin to recall Who and What You – and All Our Brothers – really are.

Hallowed your name. Your glory undefiled forever. Kept safe for You as the Holy Spirit. – And your wholeness now complete, as God established it. It has not changed, and now You are changing: returning back now to Your Sanity. – You are His Son, completing His extension in your own. We practice but an ancient truth we knew before illusion seemed to claim the world. And we remind the world that it is free of all illusions every time we say,

13 God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  And then We seek to live the Truth of Love with every Brother.

14 With this we start each day of our review. With this we start and end each period of practice time. And with this thought we sleep, to waken once again with these same words upon our lips to greet another day. – God is but Love, and so am I!  We still Our minds to ask the Holy Spirit’s help to always live this. – No thought that we review but we surround with it and use the thoughts to hold it up before our minds and keep it clear in our remembrance throughout the day. – I am the Love of God in Expression. – And thus when we have finished this review, we will have recognized the words we speak are true.  This Love fills Us with awe and gratitude that God is ever Be-ing Us as Love.

15 Yet are the words but aids and to be used, except at the beginning and the end of practice periods, but to recall the mind as needed to its purpose.  – Remember to be ever Living Love. – We place faith in the experience that comes from practice, not the means we use. We wait for the experience and recognize that it is only here conviction lies. We use the words, and try and try again to go beyond them to their meaning, which is far beyond their sound. – We will not use ‘I tried!’ as an excuse for failure, but will persevere until We reach Our goal and We are successful! – The sound grows dim and disappears as we approach the Source of meaning. It is here that we find rest.  This rest is not the unconscious slumber of the world but such joyous Living Peace!

REVIEW V

L e s s o n  176

God is but Love, and therefore so am I. 

So do I Live but to bless My Brothers.  Both those who ask for it and those whose presentation calls out so loudly for it.

[161] Give me your blessing, holy Son of God.  When You request a blessing from Your Brother, it is an acknowledgement of His worthiness and ability to give. You do honour Him.

 
God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  And with Your request, You do here include as Love Your Brother.
 
[162] I am as God created me.  God but Sources Good, and You can’t change that, neither for Yourself or for Your Brother.
 

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  Despite millennia of Our dreaming nightmares, dreams aren’t real.  God is still Love.  As S/He is, I am.  Thank You goes to God.

 

REVIEW V

R5:1 We now review again. This time we are ready to give more effort and more time to what we undertake. We recognize we are preparing for another phase of understanding. – We realize that the “little willingness” is crucial.  Without Your willingness We cannot go far; with it We wake securely to the experience of Heaven right where We are. – We would take this step completely, that we may go on again more certain, more sincere, with faith upheld more surely. Our footsteps have not been unwavering, and doubts have made us walk uncertainly and slowly on the road this course sets forth. But now we hasten on, for we approach a greater certainty, a firmer purpose and a surer goal.  It is the happiness and peace that comes to You as You begin Awakening, and it flows from the little willingness for which I’ve asked You.

I’m confident that You will give it, for it brings such good to You.  It’s a very high return on such a small investment.

2 Steady our feet, our Father; let our doubts be quiet and our holy minds be still, and speak to us. We have no words to give to You. We would but listen to Your Word and make it ours. Lead our practicing as does a father lead a little child along a way he does not understand. Yet does he follow, sure that he is safe because his father leads the way for him.  Recall My ancient words: “You must become as little children.”1

3 So do we bring our practicing to You. And if we stumble, You will raise us up. – You can count on God and Me and, of course, the Holy Spirit.  We stand by to lift You ere “You dash Your foot against a stone.”2   Our Love for You is, as yet, sweet beyond Your understanding. – If we forget the way, we count upon Your sure remembering. We wander off, but You will not forget to call us back. Quicken our footsteps now, that we may walk more certainly and quickly unto You. And we accept the Word You offer us to unify our practicing, as we review the thoughts that You have given us.  How faithful You are; how much We are loved!

4 This is the thought which should precede the thoughts that we review. Each one but clarifies some aspect of this thought or helps it be more meaningful, more personal and true, and more descriptive of the holy Self we share and now prepare to know again:

5 God is but Love, and therefore so am I.  God is the Source of all that I may be: a Fountain that is inexhaustible!

6 This Self alone knows love. This Self alone is perfectly consistent in Its thoughts, knows Its Creator, understands Itself, is perfect in Its knowledge and Its love, and never changes from Its constant state of union with Its Father and Itself.  This is What I really am for eternity!

7 And it is This that waits to meet us at the journey’s ending. And yet It walks beside Us as well, taking every step that We do, lifting Us before We stumble.

Every step we take brings us a little nearer. This review will shorten time immeasurably if we keep in mind that This remains our goal, and as we practice, it is This to which we are approaching. Let us raise our hearts from dust to life as we remember This is promised us, and that this course was sent to open up the path of light to us, and teach us, step by step, how to return to the eternal Self we thought we lost.  Remember!  This Self has been kept quite safe and whole for You, as the Holy Spirit.  How God does Love You!

8 I take the journey with you. For I share your doubts and fears a little while, that you may come to me who recognize the road by which all fears and doubts are overcome. We walk together. I must understand uncertainty and pain, although I know they have no meaning. Standing ready to heal them; I await Your invitation.

Yet a savior must remain with those he teaches, seeing what they see, but still retaining in his mind the way that led him out and now will lead you out with him. God’s Son is crucified until you walk along the road with me.  Don’t You prefer Love to crucifixion?  You know that I do.

9 My resurrection comes again each time I lead a brother safely to the place at which the journey ends and is forgot. I am renewed each time a brother learns there is a way from misery and pain. I am reborn each time a brother’s mind turns to the light in him and looks for me. I have forgotten no one. Help me now to lead you back to where the journey was begun, to make another choice with me.  “My yoke is easy, and My burden light.”3

10 Release me as you practice once again the thoughts I brought to you from Him Who sees your bitter need and knows the answer God has given Him. – Who is this “Me” of which I speak but Christ as You, a.k.a the Holy Spirit. – Together we review these thoughts.
