Miracles are seen in light.

Not the light bulb kind, but the Light of Spirit’s understanding.

1 It is important to remember that miracles and vision necessarily go together. Miracles are everywhere and everywhen; the ego chooses to ignore them. So they are present and yet unseen by the mind that chooses to be blind to them. Reality is quite spectacular, if You would just gladly will to see It. This needs repeating and frequent repeating. Remember, too, that “see” also means to understand something. It is a central idea in your new thought system and the perception which it produces. The miracle is always there. Its presence is not caused by your vision; its absence is not the result of your failure to see. It is only your awareness of miracles that is affected. You will see it in the light; you will not see it in the dark. You simply cannot see what You do not believe. You just do not grasp its reality. Like the Indians, at first, could not see the ships of Columbus for They lacked a frame of reference for but a longboat or canoe. It’s like iambic pentameter, You simply will to hear it. This is not the will of willfulness, but of willingness.
Now You start to understand this Lesson, for You are willing.
2 To you, then, light is crucial. Willingness is the Light in which You see. For in that Light which allows all Vision, miracles abound. While you remain in darkness, the miracle remains unseen. Although It – Your ever-present Vision – stands waiting for Your willingness for Light – the understanding – in which You see It. Without this Light, this understanding, You cannot use Vision. Thus you are convinced it is not there. You lack willingness. This follows from the premises from which the darkness comes. Guess who is in charge? Denial of light leads to failure to perceive it. You are willing not to see anything. Failure to perceive light is to perceive darkness. The light is useless to you then, even though it is there. You cannot use it because its presence is unknown to you. And the seeming reality of the darkness makes the idea of light meaningless. How negatively ‘clever’ is the ego.
3 To be told that what you do not see is there sounds like insanity to the blind ego. It is very difficult to become convinced that it is insanity not to see what is there and to see what is not there instead. You do not doubt that the body’s eyes can see. You do not doubt the images they show you are reality. Your faith lies in the darkness, not the light. We aim to rearrange these ideas. For We would bring them to God’s correction. As it stands presently, You believe in unreality.
4 How can this be reversed? For you it is impossible, but you are not alone in this. Your efforts, however little they may be, have strong support. Did you but realize how great this strength, your doubts would vanish. What is this strength but God, omnipotent. Today we will devote ourselves to the attempt to let you feel this strength. When you have felt the strength in you which makes all miracles within your easy reach, you will not doubt. The miracles your sense of weakness hides will leap into awareness as you feel the strength in you. It is of God; it’s Your Divinity. Will You accept It?

5 Three times today, set aside about ten minutes for a quiet time in which you try to leave your weakness behind. This is accomplished very simply, as you instruct yourself that you are not a body. You are Consciousness, alone, not ‘matter’. Faith goes to what you want, and you instruct your mind accordingly. You see there’s a ‘You’ beyond Your thinking! Your will remains your teacher, and your will has all the strength to do what it desires. You can escape the body if you choose. You can experience the strength in you. You can experience all things as mind, with blessings to You and no loss at all.

6 Begin the longer practice periods with this statement of true cause and effect relationships:
7 Miracles are seen in light. The Light of Spirit’s understanding of God’s Reality, and not the ego’s.

The body’s eyes do not perceive the light. For the ego has but one “trinity” that it calls “reality”: sin, sickness, death; of ‘matter body’ which are nothing but the very opposite of what God Knows to be Reality.
But I am not a body. What am I? “I think; therefore, I am.”1

8 The question with which this statement ends is needed for our exercises today. What you think you are is a belief to be undone. But what you really are must be revealed to you. The belief you are a body calls for correction, being a mistake. You are not a body; never were You, never will You be! The truth of what you are calls on the strength in you to bring to your awareness what the mistake concealed. The mistake has but concealed Real You. You are not body. This fact cannot be said too frequently.

9 If you are not a body, what are you? You need to be aware of what the Holy Spirit uses to replace the image of a body in your mind. You need to feel something to put your faith in, as you lift it from the body. You need a real experience of something else, something more solid and more sure, more worthy of your faith, and really there. What You need to feel is the Divine You, the way God Knows You. The Son of God most assuredly cannot be a body.

10 If you are not a body, what are you? Ask this in honesty, and then devote several minutes to allowing your mistaken thoughts about your attributes to be corrected, and their opposites to take their place. Say, for example:
11 I am not weak, but strong.
I am not helpless, but all powerful.
I am not limited, but unlimited.
I am not doubtful, but certain.
I am not an illusion, but a reality.
I cannot see in darkness, but in light.
I am not ‘matter’; I am Consciousness.

12 In the second phase of the exercise period, try to experience these truths about yourself. Concentrate particularly on the experience of strength. Remember that all sense of weakness is associated with the belief you are a body, a belief that is mistaken and deserves no faith. Try to remove your faith from it, if only for a moment. You will become accustomed to keeping faith with the more worthy in you as we go along. All sense of fear will start to diminish and finally disappear, as this great understanding grows.

13 Relax for the rest of the practice period, confident that your efforts, however meager, are fully supported by the strength of God and all His Thoughts. It is from Them your strength will come. It is through Their strong support that you will feel the strength in you. You are not puny! For You are God’s Son, His belovèd One! Your thoughts must come straight from His great Knowing. They are united with you in this practice period in which you share a purpose like Their own. God’s Thought flows forth as every One of Us! Our selves included. Theirs is the light in which you will see miracles because Their strength is yours. Only darkened thought can seem to hide this Holy Light from You. And in the strength of God Consciousness, thought becomes illumined! Their strength becomes your eyes that you may see. And seeing do You do with Vision clear!

14 Five or six times an hour at reasonably regular intervals remind yourself that miracles are seen in light. All things are clear as God’s understanding. Also, be sure to meet temptation with today’s idea. Putting on Love’s sweet and gentle armor. This form would be helpful for this special purpose:

15 Miracles are seen in light. Let me not close my eyes – slipping back into the ego’s slumber – because of this. Help Me be awake to the Love of God! Then will All be well!

REVIEW II

L e s s o n  90

1 For this review we will use these ideas:

[79] Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved.

Probably You think it’s obvious just what the problem is; so no need to look further than You have. So and so did it!
2 Let me realize today that the problem is always some form of grievance which I would cherish. Nursing it with just the greatest pleasure. They are bad, and I am good; it couldn’t be more obvious! Let me also understand that the solution is always a miracle with which I let the grievance be replaced. Today I would remember the simplicity of salvation by reinforcing the lesson that there is one problem and one solution. And it’s not: they are wrong, and You are right. Well then, what is it? The problem is a grievance; the solution is a miracle. And I invite the solution to come to me through my forgiveness of the grievance and my welcome of the miracle which takes its place. No I have not lost My mind. There’s a distinction to be made. Nor are You asked to accept ‘injustice’. Read further and the light will dawn on You!

3 Specific applications of this idea might be in these forms:
4 This presents a problem to me which I would have resolved. Yes, a problem is distinct from a grievance. A problem is capable of correction, while a grievance simply lets You rage at Your Brother: ‘He’s wrong and I’m right.’ Where’s the Love in that?

The miracle behind this grievance will resolve it for me. There always is a grand possibility for the healing, when the grievance has been replaced with Love. Yes, this step is the hardest for it must bypass the ego, which You’ve thought is You. The answer to this problem is the miracle which it conceals. The first miracle is the realization that You’re the Son of God and always have been. You’re not the ego! So from this Truth come miracles galore. Let Us expect them.

[80] Let me recognize my problems have been solved.

This recognition comes with expecting Good, which is sweet trust in God to Guide You.
5 I seem to have problems only because I am misusing time. I believe that the problem comes first, and time must elapse before it can be worked out. I do not see the problem and the answer as simultaneous in their occurrence. That is because I do not yet realize that God has placed the answer together with the problem, so that they cannot be separated by time. What makes them simultaneous but their unreality! The Holy Spirit will teach me this if I will let Him. The key is to allow the Holy Spirit to be Your Guide. And not just on occasion, but always. And I will understand it is impossible that I could have a problem which has not been solved already. The key to this is: Don’t do anything alone; this will break the separation, and this heals all things.
6 These forms of the idea will be useful for specific applications:
7 I need not wait for this to be resolved.
The answer to this problem is already given me if I will accept it. All I need is to make re-connection.
Time cannot separate this problem from its solution. One Truth heals: there is no separation.

REVIEW II

L e s s o n  89

1 Today we will review these ideas:

[77] I am entitled to miracles.

Not as in: “God owes Me! When do I get Mine? But rather: “Now that I know that – no matter what I think – I am God’s belovèd One, therefore, I must, somehow, be deserving of His Love. For God sees but the Good of Me, and not My beliefs of so-called reality.

2 I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God’s. God’s Laws are always in accord with Love. And if I will follow them, they will unglue Me from any sense of guilt, either Mine or My Brothers. His laws release me from all grievances and replace them with miracles. Which do You prefer? And I would accept the miracles in place of the grievances, which are but illusions that hide the miracles beyond. Would I be ‘right’ or would I be happy? It is worth it to forgive My Brother! Now I would accept only what the laws of God entitle me to have that I may use it on behalf of the function He has given me. Which is to be Love, Its Living Presence. Therefore, must I be Eternal, for Love goes on forever.

3 You might use these suggestions for specific applications of this idea:

4 Behind this is a miracle to which I am entitled.
Let me not hold a grievance against you [name],
but offer you the miracle that belongs to you instead.
Seen truly, this offers me a miracle. The blessing of Love – i.e. forgiveness – far outshines ‘being right’, i.e. holding on to grievances. For it is much better to be happy.

[78] Let miracles replace all grievances.

Every single one of them??? Oh can’t I cherish some of them and still be happy? Hear the ego speak!

5 By this idea do I unite my will with the Holy Spirit’s and perceive them as one. For S/He’s my Right Mind. By this idea do I accept my release from hell. Changing My experience frabjously (thanks Lewis Carroll). Can Heaven really be so easy to attain with My forgiveness? Amazing! By this idea do I express my willingness to have all my illusions be replaced with truth according to God’s plan for my salvation. Why all that God is asking is that I give up lies so I may enjoy the Real. How hard can that be? What’s that expression? Like a piece of cake! I would make no exceptions and no substitutes. I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have. How much God must Love All of Us, to be so very patient. He gives Heaven, and We keep choosing hell. That’s insanity! Time to choose again, this time choosing God.

6 Useful specific forms for applying this idea would be:

7 I would not hold this grievance apart from my salvation. It’s not so special that I cannot let it go. I really have no need of it. Let our grievances be replaced by miracles, [name]. Belovèd Brother; belovèd Sister.
Beyond this is the miracle by which all my grievances are replaced. Let that sink in: all grievances means every bit of pain, discord and suffering just disappear as happiness appears.

REVIEW II

L e s s o n  88

1 Today we will review these ideas:

[75] The light has come.

And guess whose mind does need illumination? I think It must be My own, for I, alone, am responsible for My experience of things. I can always make a different choice, which will transform My whole outlook right here – right now – in the dream.

2 In choosing salvation rather than attack, I merely choose to recognize what is already here. Salvation being Life, Truth, Love, it must be ever-present. I simply need to choose it once again Salvation is a decision made already. Attack and grievances are not there to choose. That is why I always choose between truth and illusion, between what is there and what is not. As Paul said in Bible days: “The good that I would choose, I choose not, and the evil that I wouldn’t choose, I end up choosing. Wretched man I am!”1 The light has come. I can but choose the light, for it has no alternative. So must I always choose for the illuminated Truth, for It, alone, is Real. It has replaced the darkness, and the dark is gone. Light is everywhere the darkness claimed to be. And It makes plain what is Reality.

3 These would prove useful forms for specific applications of this idea:

4 This cannot show me darkness, for the light has come. And it stands ready to illuminate God’s Reality.
The light in you is all that I would see, [name].
I would see in this only what is there. Once I admit this, then I can clearly see that all seen in Its Divine Light must be Reality.

[76] I am under no laws but God’s.

5 Here is the perfect statement of my freedom. I am under no laws but God’s. God’s Laws are gentle, quite benign, and very helpful to Me. I am constantly tempted to make up other laws and give them power over me. Pure insanity I suffer only because of my belief in them. They have no real effect on me at all. I am perfectly free of the effects of all laws save God’s. And His are the laws of freedom. The Law of Love, the Law of Life, the Law of Spirit.

6 For specific forms in applying this idea, these would be useful:

7 My perception of this shows me I believe in laws which do not exist. Nor do they help either Me or My Brother.
I see only the laws of God at work in this.
Let me allow God’s laws to work in this and not my own.
The Laws of God spring forth from Love, and they can only bless You. Embrace them gladly!

REVIEW II

L e s s o n  87

1 Our review today will cover these ideas:

[73] I will there be light.

So spake the plural God in Genesis, and there was Light. Yet could it have ever been another way? Darkness cannot be the natural condition of Our God. And Light must be Eternal; there’s no beginning to It nor will it ever end.

I need but join My will with Light, for It is Infinity, permanent, secure; quite reliable. It has always been, and always will be.

Brothers, Sisters, take My words to heart here. This is True of You: Light is what You are, continually, despite Your dreaming. Hence Daniel’s safety in the lions’ den. 1 : they dined not on Light; Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, in the fiery furnace, and even no smell of smoke upon them. 2

What is this Light but God’s understanding of Reality.

Light is the Nature of God as Spirit. Therefore, Be-ing His Presence, It must be Your real Nature too. And It must be available to You

2 I will use the power of my will today. What is “My will” but God’s Will given to Me as My Individuality. This is Truth for the entire Sonship. The Truth of One is but the Truth of All. And God’s Reality is not the special ego-thinking. It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal. Light shall be my guide today. My Living Presence. I will follow it where it leads me, and I will look only on what it shows me. And I will to see this of My Others. This day I will experience the peace – as well as safety – of true perception, as I am willing.

3 These forms of this idea would be helpful for specific application:

4 This cannot hide the light I will to see. You stand with me in light, [name]. In the light this will look different. For error cannot touch Reality, which is – and must be – forever present, available to every One of Us.

[74] There is no will but God’s.

The Truth I speak to You stands unopposed by any error. All thereis is Truth.5 I am safe today because there is no will but God’s. I stand firm in this Truth, unwavering, unshaken by the dream that seems to tightly swirl around Me. I can become afraid only when I believe that there is another will. That the ego’s screams at Me are some form of Reality. So I must remember that they aren’t! God alone is Real. I try to attack only when I am afraid, and only when I try to attack can I believe that my eternal safety is threatened. God alone is Real; let this mantra be Your Companion as You walk through the ego’s fire: i.e. its assault on You. Today I will recognize that all this has not occurred. I am safe because there is no will but God’s. Rest secure in Truth. God alone is Real!

6 These are some useful forms of this idea for specific applications:

7 Let me perceive this in accordance with the Will of God. I.e. how God sees.
It is God’s Will you are His Son, [name], and (therefore, this is) mine as well.
This is part of God’s Will for me, however I may see it. I can change My thinking and My Vision. For God wills Me and Thee to be just as He.

Daniel 3 King James Version (KJV)
1
1  It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.
3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
4 Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
6 Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
7 All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.
8 Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
9 Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
11 Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
12 Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king’s decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
13 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.
14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
15 Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.
16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
17 And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.
18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.
20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
23 Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.
24 And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.
25 Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.
26 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.
27 He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
28 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
2
Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
3 Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
4 Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages,
5 That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
6 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
7 Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
8 Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews.
9 They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever.
10 Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image:
11 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king.
14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
22 Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.
30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.

REVIEW II

L e s s o n  86

1 These ideas are for review today:

And they are capable of the most wonderful of healings.

[71] Only God’s plan for salvation will work.

All human – a.k.a. the ego’s – ways are simply useless.
And because of this:

2 It is senseless for me to search wildly about for salvation. When it is to be found within My mind. I have seen it in many people and in many things, but when I reached for it, it was not there. I was mistaken about where it is. Yet I kept reaching. I was mistaken about what it is. Yet I was so very sure that I could find it on my own, even not knowing. I will undertake no more idle seeking. For it has been fruitless, a waste of seemingly endless time. Only God’s plan for salvation will work. And I will rejoice because His plan can never fail. The fruit it bears is Divine and lovely, leaving Us quite replete with happiness.

3 These are some suggested forms for applying this idea specifically:

4 God’s plan for salvation will save me from my perception of this. Not only need I not be angry, but I can Love in this hard situation. I can and I will!
This is no exception in God’s plan for my salvation. His Love turns weeping into joyous peace, and it has done so for millennia. He is the only Healer, Our Divine Nurse and Physician.
Let me perceive this only in the light of God’s plan for salvation. I can bring each situation and lay it at His feet and then follow his direction if need be.

[72] Holding grievances is an attack on God’s plan for salvation.

We always come back to this: even allowing slight annoyance is a grievance. What is there to do! Learn Love and patience.

5 Holding grievances is an attempt to prove that God’s plan for salvation will not work. For criticism of Your Brother is an attack on God. You think it saves You. Yet only His plan will work. By holding grievances, I am therefore excluding my only hope of salvation from my awareness. I would no longer defeat my own best interests in this insane way. Up comes the question, again and again: Will I be ‘right’ or will I be happy? I would accept God’s plan for salvation and be happy.

6 Specific applications of this idea might be in these forms:

7 I am choosing between misperception and salvation as I look on this. And this choice is extremely important.
If I see grounds for grievances in this I will not see the grounds for my salvation. Another golden opportunity will be passed on by. This calls for salvation, not attack. When I choose to Love My Brother, I am saving Him as well. My judgment weighs heavily upon Him, for Our minds are joined.

So it is not just I, but He, too, who is then blessed by My choice for salvation.

REVIEW II

L e s s o n  85

1 Today’s review will cover these idea:

[69] My grievances hide the light of the world in me.

First and foremost, they hide the Light from Me! Love is the Light of all things great and small. Without that Light I cannot see properly Reality. You could say that Love is the Light of 20-20 Vision! Eschew grievances, need not Your glasses.

2 My grievances show me what is not there and hide from me what I would see. For What I would see is but Reality. Recognizing this, what do I want my grievances for? Would I be blind to God’s Revelation? They keep me in darkness and hide the light. Grievances and light cannot go together, – for grievances are dank and clammy things, nursed in the darkness – but light and vision must be joined for me – no interference – to see. Grievances interfere, tremendously. To see, I must lay grievances aside. Am I clear on this? I had better be! I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed. Love is the Light which allows Me to see.

3 Specific applications of this idea might be made in these forms:
4 Let me not use this as a block to sight.
The light of the world will shine all this away.
I have no need for this. I want to see. I resolve to turn away from dreams, refusing to look back. For like Lot’s wife,1 to look back is immobilizing and very unproductive. And not the salt of savour2 of which I spoke.

[70] My salvation comes from me.

From where else could it be? It’s not from Thee. (“Thee” being neither God or My Brothers.)
To find it only I need to rehabilitate My thoughts, from gripes to grateful.

5 Today I will recognize where my salvation is. It is in me because its Source is there. God is My Real Mind. It has not left its Source, and so it cannot have left my mind. For I am really Mind, and that makes Me (and Thee) Consciousness. I will not look for it outside myself. It is not found outside and then brought in. But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see will but reflect the light that shines in me and in itself. This Light shines as Me, for there is no Real Me that isn’t Light!

6 These forms of the idea are suitable for more specific application:

7 Let this not tempt me to look away from me for my salvation. Looking to another for salvation, when it isn’t there. I will not let this interfere with my awareness of the Source of my salvation. Relationships are opportunities, not My saviours! You mean another romance won’t save Me? This has no power to remove salvation from me. Love’s supremacy does forever guarantee salvation.

1 Genesis, chapter 19:
And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

2 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
