Workbook PART I
L e s s o n 98
I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.
Could I be anything but overwhelmed with gratitude for such an opportunity to show My appreciation for the Father-Mother’s lovingkindness!
For God is Our perfect model of forgiveness, for He sees nothing to forgive. So are We with Our trespassing Brother, overlooking all things but His innate Goodness, which may be only visible beyond Our eyes’ ability to see.
Thus does salvation come to All of Us.
1 Today is a day of special dedication. – as We devote Ourselves to Awaking – We take a stand on but one side today. – letting go of vacillation – We side with truth and let illusions go. We will not vacillate between the two but take a firm position with the one. – No longer do I wish to play the ego games, living a lie, pretending to be a ‘human’ when there is no such thing, which I know well. All that exists is the Son of God. We dedicate ourselves to truth today – instead of to the ego’s machinations – and to salvation as God planned it be. – As pure happiness for You and Me, whoever We might be. – We will not argue it is something else; we will not seek for it where it is not. In gladness we accept it as it is and take the part assigned to us by God.
2 How happy to be certain! – No vacillation. – All our doubts we lay aside today and take our stand with certainty of purpose and with thanks that doubt is gone and surety has come. – Finally, We have tired of the dream and are quite ready for Awakening. – We have a mighty purpose to fulfill – the return to happiness for all Our sleeping Brothers and Our sleeping Sisters – and have been given everything we need with which to reach the goal. – For desire is a living prayer. – Not one mistake stands in our way, for we have been absolved from errors. All our sins are washed away by realizing that they were but mistakes.
It is impossible for the Son of God to really sin. The most S/He can do is to dream S/He did, and then feel guilty. Pointless exercise.
3 The guiltless have no fear, for they are safe and recognize their safety. – They understand that guilt lives only in the dream, and that a dream cannot harm them. – They do not appeal to magic nor invent escapes from fancied threats without reality. – They understand their safety lies in Awakening, and that has become their goal. – They rest in quiet certainty that they will do what it is given them to do.
There is a peace that shines from them common to all who know They’ve come in line with God.
They do not doubt their own ability because they know their function will be filled completely in the perfect time and place.
They have gladly given the little willingness I ask, and then They have given more, for They understand the beauty of the goal that They have chosen. Peace shines from them like Light, attracting still more Brothers and still more Sisters.
They took the stand which we will take today that we may share their certainty and thus increase it by accepting it ourselves.
And thus We feel Our peace and joy increase.
4 They will be with us-all who took the stand we take today will gladly offer us all that they learned and every gain they made. Those still uncertain too will join with us and, borrowing our certainty, will make it stronger still. While those as yet unborn will hear the call we heard and answer it, when they have come to make their choice again. We do not choose but for ourselves today.
They are encouraging so many Others to choose again.
5 Is it not worth five minutes of your time each hour to be able to accept the happiness that God has given you?
These five-minute periods are meant to be oases in the dream. Would You not accept them as such and, therefore, embrace them gladly. Would You not be glad to step without the dream for five minutes every hour of the day?
Is it not worth five minutes hourly to recognize your special function here?
This is a great work in which We are engaged to bring freedom to all the billions bound within the dream. Surely You can spare five minutes each waking hour to free Your sleeping Brothers.
Is not five minutes of the hour but a small request to make in terms of a reward so great it has no measure? You have made a thousand losing bargains at the least.
And all of them were quite self-centered. Now You have a chance to give a Gift of Love, five minutes an hour. Do You think I ask too much of You? Do You not realize You will also free Yourselves as well?
6 Here is an offer guaranteeing you your full release from pain of every kind and joy the world does not contain. – Yet You must feel the cost too high that guarantees Your freedom. You know it isn’t! – You can exchange a little of your time for peace of mind and certainty of purpose with the promise of complete success. – This is assuredly no hardship to You, although it sure is to the ego. – And since time has no meaning, you are being asked for nothing in return for everything. – What a great bargain! – Here is a bargain that you cannot lose. And what you gain is limitless indeed!
You will not do this alone, for I will be with You.
7 Each hour today give Him your tiny gift of but five minutes. He will give the words you use in practicing today’s idea the deep conviction and the certainty you lack. His words will join with yours and make each repetition of today’s idea a total dedication, made in faith as perfect and as sure as His in you.
God’s plan is perfect; a perfect God, a perfect plan indeed. The thoughts He gives to You are just the ones You need to undo the separation.
8 His confidence in you will bring the light to all the words you say, and you will go beyond their sound to what they really mean.
For words are nothing until their meaning is well understood. God gives Me words that draw ideas for You within Your minds. All things I have said to You throughout the ages are what God has given Me to speak.
Listen carefully, for these words will take root and grow for You as You cherish them.
As I said 2000 years ago: Where Your treasure is, there is Your heart also.
Today you practice with Him as you say:
9 I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.
I know that All of Us are needed for His plan’s fruition.
10 In each five minutes that you spend with Him, He will accept your words and give them back to you all bright with faith and confidence so strong and steady they will light the world with hope and gladness.
Not to mention illuminating You as well!
Do not lose one chance to be the glad receiver of His gifts, that you may give them to the world today.
Look forward expectantly to each 5-minute communion We’ll have together. Let Us both cherish them as priceless jewels, for they are much more to be desired than the finest gold.
11 Give Him the words, and He will do the rest. He will enable you to understand your special function. He will open up the way to happiness, and peace and trust will be His gifts, His answer to your words. He will respond with all His faith and joy and certainty that what you say is true. And you will have conviction then of Him Who knows the function that you have on earth as well as Heaven. He will be with you each practice period you share with Him, exchanging every instant of the time you offer Him for timelessness and peace.
For each of Us has one precious Gift to give and that Gift is Our most Holy Self.
12 Throughout the hour, let your time be spent in happy preparation for the next five minutes you will spend again with Him. Repeat today’s idea while you wait for the glad time to come to you again.
“I have a part to play.” In these words lie all the freedom of God’s Reality. With Your willingness they are coming to glad fruition.
Repeat it often, and do not forget each time you do so, you have let your mind be readied for the happy time to come.
Your willingness shines Love to Every One.
13 And when the hour is gone and He is there once more to spend a little time with you, be thankful and lay down all earthly tasks, all little thoughts and limited ideas, and spend a happy time again with Him. Tell Him once more that you accept the part which He would have you take and help you fill, and He will make you sure you want this choice, which He has made with you and you with Him.
The closeness You do feel with Him surpasses all other Love that You’ve ever known.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
