LESSON SEVENTY FOUR
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
There is no will but God’s
And His Will is good. It has but this one motive: it is Love. And as our One Reality, each of Us – as part of God – are Love’s Expression. The Will that guides the Universe is Love.
1 The idea for today can be regarded as the central thought toward which all our exercises are directed. God’s is the only will. Since You are an intrinsic Part of God, there is no conflict. When you have recognized this, you have recognized that your will is His. The belief that conflict is possible has gone. Peace has replaced the strange idea that you are torn by conflicting goals. This understanding frees You from being the ego’s robot. The ego’s power over You is gone, long bondage ended. As an expression of the Will of God, you have no goal but His. Because His Will is Good, You once again have Your true freedom. Once upon a time, You thought the ego promised You more freedom, only to end up enslaved by by it for many eons.
2 There is great peace in today’s idea. It enables You to give up control and yield to peace and happiness instead. It’s so relaxing. You had not realized what tension comes with the insistence on controlling things. As You relax and yield to God, feel all tension drain away. Feel God’s Divine Energy arising from deep within You. His ever-present peace becoming Yours. And the exercises for today are directed towards finding it. The idea itself is wholly true. Therefore it cannot give rise to illusions. Without illusions, conflict is impossible. Let us try to recognize this today and experience the peace this recognition brings. How sweet Life is without the need to control; just perfect trust that You are Loved and God has but good for You.
3 Begin the longer practice periods by repeating these thoughts several times, slowly and with firm determination to understand what they mean and to hold them in mind:
4 There is no will but God’s.
I cannot be in conflict.
For His Will is Mine. If You still feel Your will is Yours, remember that this has brought so much misery. His Will corrects this.
5 Then spend several minutes in adding some related thoughts, such as:
6 I am at peace.
Nothing can disturb me. My will is God’s.
My will and God’s are one. God’s Will is always Good; and so is Mine.
Thus guilt is ended. Happiness is come.
God wills peace for His Son.
7 During this introductory phase, be sure to deal quickly with any conflict thoughts that may cross your mind. Tell yourself immediately:
8 There is no will but God’s.
These conflict thoughts are meaningless.
God knows naught of them; thus they are unreal.
9 If there is one conflict area which seems particularly difficult to resolve, single it out for special consideration. Think about it briefly but very specifically, identify the particular person or persons and the situation or situations involved, and tell yourself:
10 There is no will but God’s.
I share it with Him.
My conflicts about _____ cannot be real.
They are just idle dreams, or hallucinations. Therefore, I need pay them no mind.
11 After you have cleared your mind in this way, close your eyes and try to experience the peace to which your reality entitles you. Sink into it, and feel it closing around you. There may be some temptation to mistake these attempts for withdrawal, but the difference is easily detected. If you are succeeding, you will feel a deep sense of joy and an increased alertness rather than a feeling of drowsiness and enervation. Joy characterizes peace. By this experience will you recognize that you have reached it.
And that the peace that You have found is real.
12 If you feel yourself slipping off into withdrawal, – a mental state similar to la la land; an unwillingness to be present – quickly repeat the idea for today and try again. Do this as often as necessary. There is definite gain in refusing to allow retreat into withdrawal, even if you do not experience the peace you seek.
Peace will stay right by You, awaiting Your acceptance of it, because it is Yours.
13 In the shorter periods, which should be undertaken at regular and predetermined intervals today, say to yourself:
14 There is no will but God’s.
I seek His peace today.
I know it is available to Me, and I am grateful!
15 Then try to find what you are seeking. A minute or two every half-hour, with eyes closed if possible, would be well spent on this today.
Sweet, small oases in the arid deserts of the dreaming.
