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.

God did not create a meaningless world.
Therefore, its vacuity must be an ego invention. And the Real World must be right at hand, and available to Me and All of Us at every instant.
1 The idea for today is, of course, the reason why a meaningless world is impossible. Yes, You see why these Lessons are crucial God did not create any of the problems in the dream. Yet, as I have pointed out to You, He is still the correction for all of its errors, no matter their seeming magnitude. What God did not create does not exist. Therefore, it must be unreality. And everything that does exist exists as He created it. Exists and must also be available, for a Reality that cannot be accessed is not Reality at all, but just a dream of It. And Reality is Reality, thus both Real and available. The word for It is prayer. What else, then, is the Holy Instant? The world you see has nothing to do with reality. It is of your own making, and it does not exist. And it hides Reality – Heaven – from Your Vision, which is the ego’s purpose. The Books that teach of God come to clear Your Vision. So, let them come to life as Your Living.
When I say to look into Your Brother’s eyes and remember God, this is how it’s done: through Your willingness to let Your Love replace resentment, in Yourself as well as for Your Brother. Then are You doing good to Your Others. They feel just like You.
2 The exercises for today are to be practiced with eyes closed throughout. The mind searching period should be short, a minute at most. Do not have more than three practice periods with today’s idea unless you find them comfortable. If you do, it will be because you really understand what they are for.
3 The idea for today is another step in learning to let go the thoughts which you have written on the world, and see the Word of God in their place. The early steps in this exchange, which can truly be called salvation, can be quite difficult and even quite painful. Some of them will lead you directly into fear. You will not be left there. You will go far beyond it. Our direction is toward perfect safety and perfect peace.
4 With eyes closed, think of all the horrors in the world that cross your mind. Name each one as it occurs to you, and then deny its reality. God did not create it, and so it is not real. Say, for example:
5 God did not create that war, and so it is not real.
God did not create that airplane crash, and so it is not real.
God did not create that disaster [specify], and so it is not real.
6 Suitable subjects for the application of today’s idea also include anything you are afraid might happen to you or to anyone about whom you are concerned. In each case, name the “disaster” quite specifically. Do not use general terms. For example, do not say, “God did not create illness,” but, “God did not create cancer,” or heart attacks, or whatever may arouse fear in you.
7 This is your personal repertory of horrors at which you are looking. These things are part of the world you see. Some of them are shared illusions, and others are part of your personal hell. It does not matter. What God did not create can only be in your own mind apart from His. Therefore, it has no meaning. In recognition of this fact, conclude the practice periods by repeating today’s idea:
8 God did not create a meaningless world.
9 The idea for today can, of course, be applied to anything that disturbs you during the day, aside from the practice periods. Be very specific in applying it. Say:
10 God did not create a meaningless world.
He did not create [specify the situation
which is disturbing you], and so it is not real.
This is how You learn to truly Love – and regain Your Vision.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
