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 have no cause for anger or for fear, for You surround me.
For You are Love Itself, and there is no “Me” apart from You.
And in every need that I perceive, Your grace suffices me.
How exquisite the idea expressed by these words from Paul: “Your grace is sufficient for me.”1 What is grace but Love, given and received. Belovèd God, Your Love is enough to sustain Every One of Us, now and forever.
1 Father, let me remember You are here, and I am not alone. Truth told, there is no “I” apart from You. Surrounding me is everlasting Love. Therefore, I too am everlasting Love. All Reality is but one Substance. Now let Me live it. I have no cause for anything except the perfect peace and joy I share with You. Let Me remember this with gratitude. What need have I for anger or for fear? Surrounding me is perfect safety. Omnipresent God means good everywhere. Can I be afraid when Your eternal promise goes with me? Omnipresent Love, Your Allness so blesses and comforts Me. Surrounding me is perfect sinlessness. All is innocence, no harm anywhere. What can I fear when You created me in holiness as perfect as Your own? You do not ask for Us to be martyrs, but to simply choose to be happy! The ego, on the other hand, thrives on Your dissatisfaction. God knows naught of this, nor do You really. As You are holy, You will be happy. What is Holiness but Your Love of God.
2 God’s grace suffices us in everything that He would have us do. And only that we choose to be our will as well as His. Remember, grace is but the choice to Love, the natural consequence of forgiveness.

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.
