Anger must come from judgment. Judgment is the weapon I would use against myself to keep all miracles away from me.
Sure does! I decide that someone else is wrong, and wrong They are! My decision is a judgment, contrary to Love, which has but one judgment for an Other: This is My belovèd One! Judgment is the weapon I would use against myself to keep all miracles away from me. Judgment keeps Me so deep in dreams that miracles that come to Me do go unseen.
1 Father, I want what goes against my will and do not want what is my will to have. For what I think of as “my will” is really not Mine at all, but is the ego’s. Straighten my mind, my Father. It is sick. I do need Your help! Dreaming is insane! And it is bondage. But You have offered freedom, and I choose to claim Your gift today. I trust Your Guidance so implicitly; You’re My Saviour. And so I give all judgment to the One You gave to me to judge for me: the Holy Spirit, for He is My mind, if I will listen and not block His words. He sees what I behold, and yet He knows the truth, and does correct it. He looks on pain, – with compassion for all Our suffering – and yet He understands it is not real, and in His understanding it is healed. And so am I if I do allow His kind words to heal Me. And I do gladly! He gives the miracles my dreams would hide from my awareness. What joy stands waiting! Let Him judge today. I do not know my will, but He is sure it is Your own. What else could it be but identical to God’s, for We All are Love’s Extension. And He will speak for me, – for He, the Holy Spirit, has My grateful permission; glad I am to give it, arms outstretched to receive God’s good gifts! – and call Your miracle to come to me. Thus it surely does, and I embrace it!
2 Listen today. Keep Your mind quiet. Be very still and hear the gentle Voice for God assuring you that He has judged you as the Son He loves. You surely will, for He is always communicating Love to His Belovèd; also known as You.

What is a Miracle?
What is a miracle but having the experience of Heaven while still having the unconsciousness of so-called ‘earth’.
1 A miracle is a correction. It is personal as it is a shift in Your perception, that does bless the world for all minds are joined. It does not create nor really change at all. It merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false. Which then becomes the mind’s experience, right along with its glad astonishment. It undoes error, but does not attempt to go beyond perception nor exceed the function of forgiveness. Thus it stays within time’s limits. Which keeps it quite experienceable. Yet it paves the way for the return of timelessness and love’s awakening, for fear must slip away under the gentle remedy it gives. Fear is Your jail and jailer in the world. Yet it cannot withstand God’s gentle Love.
2 A miracle contains the gift of grace, for it is given and received as one. Perhaps You think the Gift is quite one-sided, simply from Divinity to You, a special dispensation? It isn’t. You have been willing And thus it illustrates the law of truth the world does not obey because it fails entirely to understand its ways. The world cannot understand that giving and receiving are the same since it deals in things. Reality knows all is thought. A miracle inverts perception which was upside-down before, – as if You’d walked through the looking-glass without realizing it, and now You have – and thus it ends the strange distortions that were manifest. So much seemed evil, overwhelming You. Something was wrong, yet how would You fix it, not knowing what the problem really was? Now is perception open to the truth. What relief it is! Now is forgiveness seen as justified. Who wouldn’t want to Love Your Brother now that You’re remembering Reality! How perfect, pure and sinless does S/He seem; how eminently lovable S/He is!
3 Forgiveness is the home of miracles. The giving heart is universal as well as eternal. The eyes of Christ – You may have them too as You are willing – deliver them to all they look upon in mercy and in love. Perception stands corrected in His sight, – right next to Vision – and what was meant to curse has come to bless. For that which was upside-down must now come right side up again. Each lily of forgiveness offers all the world the silent miracle of love. Love’s fragrance filling broken hearts with peaceful joy and healing; Its touch so gentle. And each is laid before the Word of God upon the universal altar to Creator and creation, in the light of perfect purity and endless joy.
Each acolyte of God arises healed, as S/He but gladly follows Me along the straight and narrow. Seeming loss is turned to gifts that were before not even heard of. Experience is now a consistent Holy Instant.
4 The miracle is taken first on faith because to ask for it implies the mind has been made ready to conceive of what it cannot see and does not understand. Hope sweetly becomes happy confidence as Your faith deepens into constancy. Doubt fights to arise. Yet faith will bring its witnesses to show that what it rested on is really there. Confidence is sure,, and very peaceful. And thus the miracle will justify your faith in it and show it rested on a world more real than what you saw before-a world redeemed from what you thought you saw. Reality appears, seemingly from nowhere; and God is seen to be now here.
5 Miracles fall like drops of healing rain from Heaven on a dry and dusty world, where starved and thirsty creatures came to die. These words of comfort are healing balm. Remember the Psalm: “I’ve longed for Thee as a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.”1 Now they have water. Now the world is green. Parched lives become both lush and peaceful. Happiness pervades like a river washing out all misery. And everywhere the signs of life spring up to show that what is born can never die, for what has life has immortality.
This is God’s Promise. It also is fact.
