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 affected only by my thoughts.
In the dream it’s a universe of individual thinking. So each who dream must, therefore, correct their own use of their mind, and not their Brother’s. In other words, just weed Your own garden.
1 It needs but this to let salvation come to all the world. For in this single thought is everyone released at last from fear. The problem is not out there, but in here! Now he – and that “he” is Me! – has learned that no one frightens him and nothing can endanger him. And why not? Because it’s only going on within His mind. It seems convincing, and it isn’t real. It is but self-imposed delusioning, the game of Dreamers. He has no enemies, and he is safe from all external things. As Reality. And He hides Reality, most carefully, beyond dreaming. His thoughts can frighten him, – ego is insane; hence, they’re very scary! – but since these thoughts belong to him alone, – meaning there is no outside creator – he has the power to change them and exchange each fear thought for a happy thought of love. If He but wills to; as He but wills to. He crucified himself. Yet God has planned that His beloved Son will be redeemed. And have His glorious resurrection.
2 Your plan is sure, my Father-only Yours. For You, alone, are the great Omniscient. All other plans will fail. Coming from ego, for the problem has not the solution! God has the solution to the problem. And I will have thoughts that will frighten me until I learn that You have given me the only thought which leads me to salvation. Mine alone will fail and lead me nowhere. (As they always have!) But the thought You gave me promises to lead me home, because it holds Your promise The thought – the state of consciousness that I do share with You – is the path to Heaven.
Let’s All join hands, in a chain of Love, as We happily return Home together.
What is the Ego?
The stranger and usurper You invented to hide the Son of God, replacing Him with an imaginary idol. A miscreation that You revere and worship.
1 The ego is idolatry- – worshiping itself – the sign of limited and separated self, born in a body, doomed to suffer and to end its life in death. It’s blind to its own obvious insanity, sure its insane thoughts are normal. The idea of Life dying makes perfect sense to the ego. It is the will that sees the Will of God as enemy and takes a form in which It is denied. The Will of God is but good for all, and thus ever-present. The ego wills good only for itself and never finds it. The ego is the “proof” that strength is weak and love is fearful, life is really death, and what opposes God alone is true. Is it not obvious that the ego is insanity? Not to the insane.
2 The ego is insane. In fear it stands beyond the Everywhere, apart from All, in separation from the Infinite. Or so it believes, yet its beliefs are those of lunacy. In its insanity it thinks it has become a victor over God Himself, – with delusions of grandeur it is rife; absolutely mad – and in its terrible autonomy, it “sees” the Will of God has been destroyed. (itself the victor; always center stage; madness unbounded) It dreams of punishment and trembles at the figures in its dreams, its enemies who seek to murder it before it can ensure its safety by attacking them. Violent thoughts, often masked by a ‘smile’. Don’t trust the ego, for its hatred also includes itself.
3 The Son of God is egoless. For S/He is the true Love of God revealed. With purest Love S/He does adore Her Source and never leaves It. What can he know of madness and the death of God when he abides in Him? As Truth, S/He does abide as God’s belovèd Presence What can he know of sorrow and of suffering when he lives in eternal joy? What can he know of fear and punishment, of sin and guilt, of hatred and attack when all there is surrounding him is everlasting peace, forever conflict-free and undisturbed in deepest silence and tranquility? Son of God, wake up! Why choose You dreaming? You’re missing so much Love and happiness, clarity and peace.!
4 To know Reality is not to see the ego and its thoughts, its works, its acts, its laws and its beliefs, its dreams, its hopes, its plans for its salvation, and the cost belief in it entails. For it does take such endless conniving to split Your mind off from God, then to keep maintaining the split. In suffering, the price for faith in it is so immense that crucifixion of the Son of God is offered daily at its darkened shrine and blood must flow before the altar where its sickly followers prepare for death. Truly Divinity is far preferable to playing at being ‘human’.
5 Yet will one lily of forgiveness – remember, I have but asked You for “a little willingness” – change the darkness into light, the altar to illusions to the shrine of Life Itself. Infinite Radiance, pure happiness; gone is all sorrow, healed by Its pure joy. And peace will be restored forever to the holy minds which God created as His Son, – You and You and You and You; every blessèd, belovèd One of You, You, You. All are included! – His dwelling-place, His joy, His love, completely His, completely one with Him. As thoughts people Mind, let but Divine qualities people thought: Life, Truth, Love, Spirit.
Start with living those; You’ll soon be happy!
