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.
L e s s o n 191
I am the holy Son of God Himself. This then must mean that I have the capacity to be just like You dear Jesus.
Yes, indeed You do. You are quite correct.
What is it that keeps getting in the way? I already know the answer, don’t i?
Yes, indeed You do. You are quite correct. Not to sound like a broken record, and there isn’t anything that You don’t know. You’re just not letting Yourself know that You know for then You would find Yourself awake. And the ego is disinclined to allow that to happen.
You will need to let the Christ as You overriide the ego. For You are the Christ, as well as I am.
1 Here is your declaration of release from bondage of the world. – For the world has become the symbol of the bondage of the Son of God who thinks He is an ego. – And here as well is all the world released. You do not see what you have done by giving to the world the role of jailer to the Son of God. Yet it is You who has put Himself/Herself in jail and has thrown away the key. What insanity.
What could it be but vicious and afraid, fearful of shadows, punitive and wild, lacking all reason, blind, insane, and sad? This is the thinking that does stand behind the separation.
2 What have you done that this should be your world? What have you done that this is what you see? Deny your own identity, and this is what remains. – This is the tiny view of the little piece You left as ‘You’. – You look on chaos and proclaim it as yourself. There is no sight that fails to witness this to you. There is no sound that does not speak of frailty within you and without, no breath you draw that does not seem to bring you nearer death, no hope you hold but will dissolve in tears. This is so-called ‘life’ when believed to be separate from God. Not a good bargain that You struck with the devil, now was it? For ‘devil’ is but another name for ego. The story of Lucifer is a parable for the separation.1
3 Deny your own identity, and you will not escape the madness which induced this weird, unnatural, and ghostly thought which mocks creation and which laughs at God. To believe Yourself to be a ‘human being’ is most assuredly denying Your God-given Identity: the Holy Son of God.
Deny your own identity, and you assail the universe alone, without a friend, a tiny particle of dust against the legions of your enemies. Deny your own identity and look on evil, sin, and death. And watch despair snatch from your fingers every scrap of hope, leaving you nothing but the wish to die. For just this reason was ‘death’ invented. One way or another the dream gets sour, sad, or boring, even horrific. An exit was needed other than Awakening, for all the Dreamer addicts; (i.e. all of You). So-called ‘death’ is antithetic to God.
4 Yet what is it except a game you play in which identity can be denied? And then still another specious one invented to keep Your dreaming ongoing.
You are as God created you. – You can’t be altered! What God does must always last forever, and He does but Good. What does that make You, now and forever? – All else but this one thing is folly to believe. In this one thought is everything set free. In this one truth are all illusions gone. In this one fact is sinlessness proclaimed to be forever part of everything, the central core of its existence, and its guarantee of immortality. God’s Permanence and Yours are ‘set in stone’; You cannot in any way be altered from Your perfection. We are as permanent as is Our Source. You might recall it’s been 2000 years that I’ve been coaching every One of You. Time is irrelevant to Us because We are forever.
5 But – let’s say Now instead – let today’s idea find a place among your thoughts, and you have risen far above the world and all the worldly thoughts that hold it prisoner. – No later than now could and should this be safely accomplished. – And from this place of safety and escape, you will return and set it free. For he who can accept his true identity is truly saved. And his salvation is the gift he gives to everyone in gratitude to Him Who pointed out the way to happiness that changed his whole perception of the world. Aren’t You just a little curious to experience Your True Self Divine? Believing that You’re but a ‘human’ is really boring compared to the Divine.
6 One holy thought like this, and you are free; you are the holy Son of God Himself. And with this holy thought, you learn as well that you have freed the world. You have no need to use it cruelly and then perceive this savage need in it. You set it free of your imprisonment. You will not see a devastating image of yourself walking the world in terror with the world twisting in agony because your fears have laid the mark of death upon its heart. Why am I speaking so strongly to You? So that You stop romancing the dream. It’s quite ugly. Because it’s all You think You know, You tolerate it when You shouldn’t.
Look at Ronnie W.: good guy, got You through that math class in senior high, belovèd of His high school friends, and later family and business associates, suddenly He dies. Where is Our God in that? This is the best the dream can offer You. As I’ve said before, You’re All like Esau in the Bible.2 At least He got pottage. All You’ve got is mess!
Here comes the good news:
7 Be glad today how very easily is hell undone. You need but tell yourself:
8 I am the holy Son of God Himself.
I cannot suffer, cannot be in pain;
I cannot lose, nor can I fail to do
All that salvation asks.
All that is asked of Me is to Be Me! That’s not very hard.
9 And in that thought is everything you look on wholly changed. The eyes of Love now become Your Vision.
10 A miracle has lighted up all dark and ancient caverns where the rites of death echoed since time began. For time has lost its hold upon the world. – No-One can ‘die’ in God’s eternal Now. – The Son of God has come in glory to redeem the lost, to save the helpless, and to give the world the gift of his forgiveness. Who could see the world as dark and sinful when God’s Son has come again at last to set it free? The Son’s Light illuminates the endless Universe of Good.
11 You who perceive yourself as weak and frail, with futile hopes and devastated dreams, born but to die, to weep, and suffer pain, hear this: all power is given you in earth and Heaven. There is nothing that you cannot do. You play the game of death, of being helpless, pitifully tied to dissolution in a world which shows no mercy to you. Yet when you accord it mercy will its mercy shine on you. The world ‘outpictures’ the thoughts of All the sleeping Sons of God.
12 Then let the Son of God awaken from his sleep, and opening his holy eyes return again to bless the world he made. In error it began. But it will end in the reflection of his holiness. And he will sleep no more and dream of death. Then join with me today. Your glory is the light that saves the world. Do not withhold salvation longer. Look about the world, and see the suffering there. Is not your heart willing to bring your weary brothers rest? When the Son stops sleeping and Awakens, that is the end of all so-called ‘dying’. Cause for rejoicing!
13 They must await your own release. They stay in chains till you are free. They cannot see the mercy of the world until you find it for yourself. They suffer pain until you have denied its hold on you. They die till you accept your own eternal life. You are the holy Son of God Himself. Remember this, and all the world is free. Remember this, and earth and Heaven are one.
1 Isaiah 14:12 King James Version 12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, …
The word Lucifer is associated with Light or daystar. Brother says this text is not a single person, but the fall into sleep, the dream. And that We all may realize it speaks of Us as We dream on.
2 As I have referenced before, Esau and Jacob were twins, and Esau sold His birthright as elder to Jacob for a mess of pottage (lentils). And again, as I love to point out: at least He got some beans. All You got were awful dreams.
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!
