CIMS DAILY LESSON
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. When You see the word ‘YOU’ capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.

I am entrusted with the gifts of God.
They are My very sum and Substance. All I am is what He gives to Me as Me. What is His Gift to Me but everything. “Fear not little flock, for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give You the Kingdom.”1
1 All things are given you. God’s trust in you is limitless. He knows His Son. He gives without exception, holding nothing back that can contribute to your happiness. You have surely forgotten just how much You’re loved, how important to Gad and to all the Universe.
And yet unless your will is one with His, His gifts are not received. But what would make you think there is another will than His? It is not that God withholds, but that You are blinded to the Gifts by the ego. Thus You ignore them.
2 Here is the paradox that underlies the making of the world. This world is not the Will of God, and so it is not real. Yet those who think it real must still believe there is another will, and one that leads to opposite effects from those He wills. Impossible indeed, but every mind that looks upon the world and judges it as certain, solid, trustworthy, and true believes in two creators or in one, himself alone. But never in one God. This is a paragraph that should be read every day so You may see where Your affections – and thus Your treasures – really lie.
Until the depth of Your self-deceptions do become quite clear to You, You will keep on dreaming all these endless, pointless dreams.
3 The gifts of God are not acceptable to anyone who holds such strange beliefs. He must believe that, to accept God’s gifts, however evident they may become, however urgently he may be called to claim them as his own, is being pressed to treachery against himself. He must deny their presence, contradict the truth, and suffer to preserve the world he made. And all of this is done so He can stay in charge, the king of His petty kingdom. So much effort to hold on to nothing.
4 Here is the only home he thinks he knows. Here is the only safety he believes that he can find. Without the world he made is he an outcast, homeless and afraid. He does not realize that it is here he is afraid indeed and homeless too-an outcast wandering so far from home, so long away, he does not realize he has forgotten where he came from, where he goes, and even who he really is. The idea that anything could be different from the way that He sees things is not just confusing, but frightening as well. Especially if He feels ‘successful’ within His dream. Although the so-called ‘unsuccessful’ are pretty dogged too.
5 Yet in his lonely, senseless wanderings, God’s gifts go with him, all unknown to him. He cannot lose them. But he will not look at what is given him. He wanders on, aware of the futility he sees about him everywhere, perceiving how his little lot but dwindles as he goes ahead to nowhere. Still he wanders on in misery and poverty, alone though God is with him, and a treasure his so great that everything the world contains is valueless before its magnitude. The sleeping Son of God can be pretty stubborn, staying – like the Prodigal – lifetimes eating ‘pig food’ (You could say ‘eating crow’) insisting ever that what He’s doing is okay, despite dismal results.
To be a Dreamer is to be insane.
6 He seems a sorry figure-weary, worn, in threadbare clothing, and with feet that bleed a little from the rocky road he walks. No one but has identified with him, for everyone who comes here has pursued the path he follows and has felt defeat and hopelessness as he is feeling them. Yet is he really tragic when you see that he is following the way he chose and needs but realize Who walks with him and open up his treasures to be free? You may say: “Yes, but …”
7 This is your chosen self, the one you made as a replacement for reality. This is the self you savagely defend against all reason, every evidence, and all the witnesses with proof to show this is not you. You heed them not. You go on your appointed way, with eyes cast down lest you might catch a glimpse of truth and be released from self-deception and set free. You must like dreaming. I know that it seems very familiar. Yet it is Heaven that I offer You!
8 You cower fearfully lest you should feel Christ’s touch upon your shoulder and perceive His gentle hand directing you to look upon your gifts. How could you then proclaim your poverty in exile? He would make you laugh at this perception of yourself. No, not All off You. There are a comparative few that do long to Awaken. And You do have an unseen cheering squad. And We do understand how compelling the habit. It makes the worst street drug look like a lollypop.
Yet We want to keep this light, infused with humor, to break through Your hypnotic state.
When We do succeed – Where is self-pity then? And what becomes of all the tragedy you sought to make for him whom God intended only joy? Why not with God line up Your intentions?
9 Your ancient fear has come upon you now, and justice has caught up with you at last. Christ’s hand has touched your shoulder, and you feel that you are not alone. You even think the miserable self you thought was you may not be your identity. Perhaps God’s Word is truer than your own. Perhaps His gifts to you are real. Perhaps He has not wholly been outwitted by your plan to keep His Son in deep oblivion and go the way you chose without your Self. You see by My words here just how deep the resistance of the Son of God has run. Yet the depth of it is summarily dismissed by the heights of God’s Love for You.
10 God’s Will does not oppose. It merely is. It has no opposite for God is All. His Goodness is supreme for there is nothing to oppose It. Nothing Real, that is. You have fooled Yourself with nothing but a phantasmagoria. A three-ring circus going on solely in the ego mind.
It is not God you have imprisoned in your plan to lose your Self. He does not know about a plan so alien to His Will. There was a need He did not understand, to which He gave an Answer. That is all. And you who have this Answer given you have need no more of anything but this. You are the Son of God, nothing less, nothing more. God’s One Son is but perfection.
11 Now do we live, for now we cannot die. The wish for death is answered, –and with Life’s Vision – and the sight that looked upon it now has been replaced by vision which perceives that you are not what you pretend to be. – The jig is up! Having come this far through the Lessons, the dream is now full of holes, very patchy. – One walks with you Who gently answers all your fears with this one merciful reply: “It is not so.” – The whole thing is a dream, a nightmare at that. You suffer from but an illusion. The pain You’re having now, it is not real. The ego says: That’s what You think Buster! And then does intensify it. It still isn’t real, no matter how bad it gets The point remains: there is no matter, and Spirit is pain free..– He points to all the gifts you have each time the thought of poverty oppresses you and speaks of His companionship when you perceive yourself as lonely and afraid. His gentleness beyond compare; His kindness brings tears of joy.
12 Yet He reminds you still of one thing more you had forgotten. For His touch on you has made you like Himself. The gifts you have are not for you alone. What He has come to offer you, you now must learn to give. This is the reason We do share the Guidance on these Lessons with the world, in order to reinforce the understanding.
This is the lesson that His giving holds, for He has saved you from the solitude you sought to make in which to hide from God. You are not alone. Never have You been, nor will You ever be. Life is but a shared experience.
He has reminded you of all the gifts that God has given you. He speaks as well of what becomes your will when you accept these gifts and recognize they are your own. You do know the Gifts that I am giving, and Your appreciation is so much appreciated!
13 The gifts are yours, entrusted to your care to give to all who chose the lonely road you have escaped. All YOU who joy in Your companionship with Me as You do read the Lessons and this Guidance are blessed with the Transcriber. (Who would like Me to lower-case that T. I will not do it for You All must stand up constantly for Your Divinity!)
The only ‘law’ You Fugitives from hell do break is not now insisting upon Your Divinity!
They do not understand they but pursue their wishes. It is you who teach them now. For They can ‘see’ and ‘hear’ You, and at the beginning of the glimpse of freedom, this is quite important.
For you have learned of Christ there is another way for them to walk. Teach them by showing them the happiness that comes to those who feel the touch of Christ and recognize God’s gifts. I know this is the Gift You Love the best, this outrageous persisting happiness!
Let sorrow not tempt you to be unfaithful to your trust. Stay steadfast as You must despite the gloomy picture the world is but presenting. For error can be very convincing. Sisters, Brothers, You need not believe it!
14 Your sighs will now betray the hopes of those who look to you for their release. Your tears are theirs. If you are sick, you but withhold their healing. What you fear but teaches them their fears are justified. – Yet, You know they aren’t, and this Knowing revivifies them! Truly are You “born again” and this time not as a ‘baby’!– Your hand becomes the giver of Christ’s touch; your change of mind becomes the proof that who accepts God’s gifts can never suffer anything. You are entrusted with the world’s release from pain. Be faithful to Your trust, Others are depending on You to share the way with them, as their ‘here-and-now, not then, example.
15 Betray it not. Become the living proof of what Christ’s touch can offer everyone. God has entrusted all His gifts to you. This is how and why You rose at four – and with a migraine – to finish this Lesson. And where has the migraine gone? And not just ‘yours’. Others have had spontaneous remissions and healings due to willingness to be faithful.
Be witness in your happiness to how transformed the mind becomes which chooses to accept His gifts and feel the touch of Christ. Such is your mission now. For God entrusts the giving of His gifts to all who have received them. He has shared His joy with you. And now you go to share it with the world. Keep persevering! All who read this, I have need of You to Be My recruits too!
1 Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. King James Version
