LESSON TWENTY NINE
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 I

God is in everything I see.
There is no real anything apart from God, so let Us clearly say: God is the All-that-is-Real of everything there is or ever could be.
The Universe is literally One Truth. In two words: God is.
1 The idea for today explains why you can see all purpose in anything. Again: the Universe is one cohesive Whole; not many things which are joined, but rather one Idea, including All. And that Idea is quite stupendous, for It is the All. It explains why nothing is separate, by itself or in itself. And it explains why nothing you see means anything. For You see it separately, and so it has little meaning. In fact, it explains every idea we have used thus far and all subsequent ones as well. Today’s idea is the whole basis for vision. Don’t worry if You cannot see it yet. Your eyes are unaccustomed to that View, for You’re knowing only separation.
2 You will probably find this idea very difficult to grasp at this point. You may find it silly, irreverent, senseless, funny, and even objectionable. I ask but Your patience with these Lessons. Certainly God is not in a table, for example, as you see it. Yet we emphasized yesterday that a table shares the purpose of the universe. And what shares the purpose of the universe shares the purpose of its Creator. What could purpose be but Love’s extension.
3 Try then today to begin to learn how to look on all things with love, appreciation, and open-mindedness. And above all: Your curiosity! You do not see them now. Would you know what is in them? Nothing is as it appears to you. Its holy purpose stands beyond your little range. When vision has shown you the holiness that lights up the world, you will understand today’s idea perfectly. And you will not understand how you could ever have found it difficult. Ah! How wonderful! I see I’ve piqued Your curiosity!
4 Our six two-minute practice periods for today should follow a now familiar pattern: begin with repeating the idea to yourself, and then apply it to randomly chosen subjects about you, naming each one specifically. Try to avoid the tendency toward self-directed selection, which may be particularly tempting in connection with today’s idea because of its wholly alien nature. Remember that any order you impose is equally alien to reality. God has no favorites. This is quite comforting to Dreamers.
5 Your list of subjects should therefore be as free of self-selection as possible. For example, a suitable list might include:
6 God is in this coat hanger. This only strikes You funny because You didn’t get it that God is really All!
God is in this magazine. And ditto magazines!
God is in this finger.
God is in this lamp.
God is in that body.
God is in that door.
God is in that waste basket. And obviously God is everywhere.
7 In addition to the assigned practice periods, repeat the idea for today at least once an hour, looking slowly about you as you say the words unhurriedly to yourself. And be curious. At least once or twice you should experience a sense of restfulness as you do this.
For this idea is very peaceful.
