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.
Workbook PART II
L e s s o n 268
Let all things be exactly as they are.
How else could they be unless I choose to use My mind to foolishly distort them? Playing such games, apart from God, have yet to make Me happy. Yet I continue. Perhaps I should stop and let God once again be the Author. This experiment of separation is surely a flop!
1 Let me not be Your critic, Lord, today, and judge against You. We thought separation would be more fun (more fun than Heaven). Certainly it’s not. Let me not attempt to interfere with Your creation and distort it into sickly forms. Those We see each moment while We’re dreaming. Let me be willing to withdraw my wishes from its unity and thus to let it be as You created it. It was really insane for Us to think We could interfere with Reality. Forgive Us Father. For thus will I be able, too, to recognize my Self as You created me. What could be better! In Love was I created, and in Love will I remain forever. In Love with Our God and all Creation. What can frighten me when I let all things be exactly as they are?
God’s Creation is perfectly benign.
2 Let not our sight be blasphemous today nor let our ears attend to lying tongues. Let Us All shake free from ego dreaming. Only reality is free of pain. Only reality is free of loss. Only reality is wholly safe. And it is only this we seek today. For God alone is Our Reality, now and forever.
What is the Body?
“Why?” says the ego, with grandiosity most arrogant and most obnoxious, “It is most obviously what I am. Anyone who isn’t blind can see that!”
1 The body is a fence the Son of God imagines he has built to separate parts of his Self from other parts. – The body states just who and what I am!” – It is within this fence, he thinks he lives, to die as it decays and crumbles. – Which does ensure that He can stay within the dream for just as long as He wants to. The ego worships death for it does demonstrate that God is cruel, No-One to trust! – For within this fence he thinks that he is safe from love. – What Love can there be in such a God? This is how He thinks; this is how He dreams, sleeping Son of God. His stance ensures that He won’t want to go Home, not to a God Who kills His children off. – Identifying with his safety, he regards himself as what his safety is. – He gives to Himself the only power; yet it isn’t real. –How else could he be certain he remains within the body, – and He fears to step outside His tiny boundaries for fear that it will put an end to His dream of – keeping love outside? and thereby end all dreaming forever. Do not underestimate the attachment of the sleeping Son of God to dreams.
2 The body will not stay. Yet this he sees as double safety. It ends dreams that are tiresome, yet does not end dreaming.
For the Son of God’s impermanence is “proof” his fences work and do the task his mind assigns to them. It proves to Him the separation does remain successful; His goal still achieved.
For if his oneness still remained untouched, who could attack and who could be attacked? Who could be victor? Who could be his prey? Who could be victim? Who the murderer? And if he did not die, what “proof” is there that God’s eternal Son can be destroyed? The story’s over. His whole ‘accomplishment’ but nonsense. The drama nothing. Eons of ‘history’ shown up as pointless.
3 The body is a dream. – And, thus, never real. All ‘history’ a fantasy, including ego’s body, its prized ‘creation’. – Like other dreams, it sometimes seems to picture happiness but can quite suddenly revert to fear, where every dream is born. – And why is this so? – For only love creates in truth, and truth can never fear. Made to be fearful, must the body serve the purpose given it. But we can change the purpose which the body will obey by changing what we think that it is for. It was made solely for separation.
4 The body is the means by which God’s Son returns to sanity. – For through it can S/He access Her Brothers, He touch His Brothers. – Though it was made to fence him into hell without escape, yet has the goal of Heaven been exchanged for the pursuit of hell. Now it is reversed! The Son of God extends his hand to reach his brother and to help him walk along the road with him. Bodies joined in the Love of Brotherhood. No longer to please Oneself, but now to include All Others.
Now is the body holy. Now it serves to heal the mind that it was made to kill. Now it chooses Life, its one true Purpose.
5 You will identify with what you think will make you safe. Whatever it may be, you will believe that it is one with you. And so it becomes; Your choice makes it so.
Your safety lies in truth and not in lies. For Reality only is benign.
Love is your safety. It always has been, and it always will be.
Fear does not exist. Only in the dreaming did it seem real, and Truth shows up its unreality. Identify with love, and you are safe. Identify with love, and you are home. Identify with love, and find your Self.
And as Yourself, eternal happiness! Welcome Home Loved One!
