God is but Love, and therefore so am I.
 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? 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.
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!
