L e s s o n  152

 The power of decision is my own.

Will I choose for happiness or opt for suffering? It depends on what I want. Choice is always Ours, in this case, Mine.

1 No one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision. I hear Your words, and they are sometimes hard to take. Difficult enough that bad things happen; now You’re saying that it’s My choice! Indeed, that is just what I’m saying here! No one suffers pain except his choice elects this state for him. No one can grieve nor fear nor think him sick unless these are the outcomes that he wants. And no one dies without his own consent. Nothing occurs but represents your wish, and nothing is omitted that you choose. Do You disagree with this vehemently, yelling: I’m not doing this to Me!. S/He is doing it! Here is your world, complete in all details. Here is its whole reality for you. And it is only here salvation is.

Okay, I think I’m getting this. Is it that We script Our dreams here (that We call lifetimes) and then choose to forget so We don’t spoil the thrill of this addiction We have to endless dreaming?

2 You may believe that this position is extreme and too inclusive to be true. Can You really be responsible for this endless suffering? Unfortunately, the answer’s yes. Yes, again; indeed, dreaming is insane. Yet can truth have exceptions? If you have the gift of everything, can loss be real? Can pain be part of peace, or grief of joy? Can fear and sickness enter in a mind where love and perfect holiness abide? Obviously not. What’s the solution? Truth must be all-inclusive if it be the truth at all. Accept no opposite and no exceptions, for to do so is to contradict the truth entirely. In other words, stick with the Truth to free Yourself from all this addictive dreaming.

3 Salvation is the recognition that the truth is true and nothing else is true. This you have heard before, but may not yet accept both parts of it. Without the first, the second has no meaning, but without the second is the first no longer true. Let’s have a third part: Truth is always good. Truth cannot have an opposite. For Truth is God, and, therefore, All there is or can ever be.Where, then, is error? It must be nowhere! This can not be too often said and thought about. For the ego is always seeing shades of gray instead of the clarity of what is right and the superpositions what-just-simply-isn’t. For if what is not true is true as well as what is true, then part of truth is false, and truth has lost its meaning. Nothing but the truth is true, and what is false is false. And nothing but the Truth exists, despite the seeming other.

4 This is the simplest of distinctions, yet the most obscure. But not because it is a difficult distinction to perceive. It is concealed behind a vast array of choices which do not appear to be entirely your own. The ego mind is adept and quite clever at distortion. And thus the truth appears to have some aspects that belie consistency but do not seem to be but contradictions introduced by you. Often You don’t know Your own interests, the best thing to do. (That’s when You know that it’s time to turn to the Holy Spirit.) The ego will vociferously, quite loudly deny this!

5 As God created you, you must remain unchangeable with transitory states by definition false. And that includes all shifts in feeling, alterations in conditions of the body and the mind, in all awareness, and in all response. And as We take it further, You must see that both ‘birth’ and ‘death’ are preposterously impossible. We will discuss this further later on. This is the all-inclusiveness which sets the truth apart from falsehood, and the false kept separate from the truth as what it is. The steadfastness of Reality is that of which I speak today, and always. Because of the reliability of Good, happiness is quite natural to everybody. This most joyous peace is second nature to Reality.

6 Is it not strange that you believe to think you made the world you see is arrogance? God made it not. Of this you can be sure. Oh, I know the Bible says so; yet what is the Bible but a record of the separation, and the histories of the handful that Awakened, the Ones who have been called “prophets”; they who returned the people back to God, at least a little ways. And yet that “little” does mean a lot. The Bible is a record too of great things very holy, which makes it a precious jewel among books.  What can He know of the ephemeral, the sinful and the guilty, the afraid, the suffering and lonely, and the mind that lives within a body that must die? You but accuse Him of insanity, to think He made a world where such things seem to have reality. He is not mad. He is the acme of all Sanity Yet only madness makes a world like this. Do You disagree?Stop reading for a few moments and go read the awful news.

7 To think that God made chaos, contradicts His Will, – His Beauty and His holy Harmony – invented opposites to truth, and suffers death to triumph over life—all this is arrogance. And You believe it! Humility would see at once these things are not of Him. And can you see what God created not? To think you can is merely to believe you can perceive what God willed not to be. And what could be more arrogant than this? Do You not think this makes You more powerful than mighty God? Arrogance is but an understatement!

8 Let us today be truly humble and accept what we have made as what it is. This means a stand and the understanding that what We think is ‘real’ is very far from Reality.The power of decision is our own. Decide but to accept your rightful place as co-creator of the universe, – which is to accept God’s Reality as Yours, instead of Be-ing sunk in dreams of Your own making – (yes, now You understand “co-creator) and all you think you made will disappear. What rises to awareness then will be all that there ever was, eternally as it is now. And it will take the place of self-deceptions made but to usurp the altar to the Father and the Son. Freedom comes when You choose God’s Reality instead of dreams.

9 Today we practice true humility, abandoning the false pretense by which the ego seeks to prove it arrogant. Only the ego can be arrogant. But truth is humble in acknowledging its mightiness, its changelessness, and its eternal wholeness—all-encompassing, God’s perfect gift to His beloved Son.  Truth, what can We say about it, how high can Our praises ring? How good, how sweet it is to experience It after eon after eon of only the ego with all its lies.

10 We lay aside the arrogance which says that we are sinners, guilty and afraid, ashamed of what we are. And we lift our hearts in true humility instead to Him Who has created us immaculate, like to Himself in power and in love. Do the rays differ from the sun? Only in quantity, In quality they’re one. The power of decision is our own, to choose for Christ or to choose for ego. And we accept of Him that which we are and humbly recognize the Son of God, present where We are.

11 To recognize God’s Son implies as well that all self-concepts have been laid aside and recognized as false. Their arrogance has been perceived. And in humility the radiance of God’s Son, his gentleness, his perfect sinlessness, his Father’s Love, – You are feeling this – his right to Heaven and release from hell are joyously accepted as our own. Christ We are, along with Brother Jesus. Now do we join in glad acknowledgment that lies are false and only truth is true. Since Christ is Truth, then only Christ is real.

12 We think of truth alone as we arise and spend five minutes practicing its ways, encouraging our frightened minds with this:

13 The power of decision is my own.
This day I will accept myself as what
My Father’s Will created me to be.
Never do I need return to ego.

14 Then will we wait in silence, giving up all self-deceptions as we humbly ask our Self that He reveal Himself to us. And He Who never left – belovèd Spirit, so very Holy – will come again to our awareness, grateful to restore His home to God as it was meant to be.  So very lovely, this experience.

15 In patience wait for Him – Your sweet Saviour – throughout the day and hourly invite Him with the words with which the day began, concluding it with this same invitation to your Self. I choose to be Holy Spirit over the pretense of being so-called ‘human’. For I would rather live My way to God than make the choice for the so-called ‘dying’. God’s Voice will answer, for He speaks for you and for your Father. Your choice is surely heard by God and clearly will be answered! He will substitute the peace of God for all your frantic thoughts, – You will feel relief – the truth of God for self-deceptions, and God’s Son for your illusions of yourself. Freely give, just as freely You will receive.

Speak to Him Thou for He hearest.

Spirit with Spirit is One.

WORKBOOK FOR STUDENTS – Part I

L e s s o n  151

All things are echoes of the Voice of God.

Sometimes God’s Voice rings out as clear as Liberty Bell; other times it is distorted, even muted. It depends on Your willingness: first to listen, then to hear.

1 No one can judge on partial evidence. In other words, with a Dreamer mindset. That is not judgment. It is merely an opinion based on ignorance and doubt. It’s a really shaky foundation for this entire dream. Its seeming certainty is but a cloak for the uncertainty it would conceal. It needs irrational defense because it is irrational. And its defense seems strong, convincing, and without a doubt because of all the doubting underneath. Dreamers and dreams have no stability, being based on but imagination.

2 You do not seem to doubt the world you see. Despite its bizarre situations, to put it mildly. It gives but the appearance of violence and insanity running rampant. You do not really question what is shown you through the body’s eyes. How easily You do accept the horror show You’re seeing. Nor do you ask why you believe it, even though you learned a long while since your senses do deceive. That you believe them to the last detail which they report is even stranger when you pause to recollect how frequently they have been faulty witnesses indeed! Why would you trust them so implicitly? Because You want to. Why but because of underlying doubt which you would hide with show of certainty? You have a lot invested in the dream.

3 How can you judge?  Unfortunately, easily, because You Love to do so. Your judgment rests upon the witness that your senses offer you. You believe them but because You want to. Yet witness never falser was than this. That doesn’t matter because of Your insistence that this must be Reality! But how else do you judge the world you see? You place pathetic faith in what your eyes and ears report. You think your fingers touch reality and close upon the truth. This is awareness which you understand and think more real than what is witnessed to by the eternal Voice of God Himself, which seems to You to be unsubstantial, for the gullible; not something on which You want to rely! .

4 Can this be judgment? More like ego judging in which You do indulge constantly, day in and day out. You have often been urged to refrain from judging, not because it is a right to be withheld from you. (Although every One has the right not to be held to judgment! You cannot judge. You would not do so if You didn’t think You were an ego. You merely can believe the ego’s judgments, all of which are false. It guides your senses carefully, to prove how weak you are, how helpless and afraid, how apprehensive of just punishment, how black with sin, how wretched in your guilt. All this guilt and fear laid upon Yourself keeps You in the dream quite successfully.

5 This thing it speaks of and would yet defend it tells you is yourself. Quoting Myself in Bible times: It is a liar and the father of the lie. So You see Yourself. And you believe that this is so with stubborn certainty. Yet underneath remains the hidden doubt that what it shows you as reality with such conviction it does not believe. It is itself alone that it condemns. It is within itself it sees the guilt. It is its own despair it sees in you. In Your mind You think You are this ego. And yet You aren’t.

6 Hear not its voice. Tell it to shut up! The witnesses it sends to prove to you its evil is your own are false and speak with certainty of what they do not know. Nor do they wish to. Ignorance makes for successful bondage. Your faith in them is blind because you would not share the doubts their lord cannot completely vanquish. You believe to doubt his vassals is to doubt yourself. It has controlled You for so very long; it is familiar (all this ego guilt). Yet you must learn to doubt their evidence will clear the way to recognize yourself and let the Voice for God alone be Judge of what is worthy of your own belief. Learn to listen to the Holy Spirit. Let Her be Your Guide.

7S/He will not tell you that your brother should be judged by what your eyes behold in him, nor what his body’s mouth says to your ears, nor what your fingers’ touch reports of him. S/He passes by such idle witnesses, which merely bear false witness to God’s Son. His judgment is Love. Love unqualified, unconditional. He recognizes only what God loves, – for example: You! – and in the holy light of what He sees do all the ego’s dreams of what you are vanish before the splendor He beholds. Turn to God with open heart; this is true surgery: this opening of Your heart.

8 Let Him be judge of what you are, for He has certainty in which there is no doubt, because it rests on certainty so great that doubt is meaningless before Its face. Would that You could now see Yourself as God does see Your beauty! Christ cannot doubt Himself. He is as sure of Your perfection as He is of His own. The Voice of God can only honor Him, rejoicing in His perfect, everlasting sinlessness. Take this sinlessness upon Yourself, for it belongs to You. Whom He has judged – He has judged as holy, pure perfection – can only laugh at guilt, unwilling now to play with toys of sin, unheeding of the body’s witnesses before the rapture of His holy face. It’s as if You’re gazing in a mirror, His Holiness is mirrored now as You.

9 And thus He judges you. Hear His “Innocent!” ring out loud and clear like Liberty Bell! Its pure pitch perfect. Accept His word of what you are, for He bears witness to your beautiful creation and the Mind Whose Thought created your reality. For You are God’s Son and not the ego’s. What can the body mean to Him Who knows the glory of the Father and the Son? Remember that You’re not a body, and, thus, that You are Mind. What whispers of the ego can He hear? What could convince Him that your sins are real? God and Holy Spirit know the Truth of Your Reality, for You are Spirit.

10 Let Him be judge as well of everything that seems to happen to you in this world. Go quickly to Him, asking for Her Truth, for His point of view. His lessons will enable you to bridge the gap between illusions and the truth. S/He will remove all faith that you have placed in pain, disaster, suffering, and loss. Would You not gladly give all these things up? He gives you vision which can look beyond these grim appearances and can behold the gentle face of Christ in all of them. Transforming the hell You made to Heaven. You will no longer doubt that only good can come to you who are beloved of God, for He will judge all happenings and teach the single lesson which they all contain. That God is Love and always will remain.

11 He will select the elements in them that represent the truth and disregard those aspects which reflect but idle dreams. Paying attention, You learn to discern. And He will reinterpret all you see and all occurrences, each circumstance, and every happening which seems to touch on you in any way from His one frame of reference, – God Reality – wholly unified and sure. And you will see the love beyond the hate, the constancy in change, the pure in sin, and only Heaven’s blessing on the world. “the Love behind the hate” stands out to You.

12 Such is your resurrection, for your life is not a part of anything you see. For this is a dream. It stands beyond the body and the world, past every witness for unholiness, within the Holy, holy as Itself. In everyone and everything, His Voice would speak to you of nothing but your Self and your Creator, Who is one with Him. So will you see the holy face of Christ in everything and hear in everything no sound except the echo of God’s Voice. Words of Love indeed, far beyond the words of The Mama’s and The Papas is the Love Song of Our dear Father-Mother God. They look for nothing but to give to You.

13 We practice wordlessly today, except at the beginning of the time you spend with God. We introduce these times with but a single, slow repeating of the thought with which the day begins. Allow the idea to become intrinsic Part of You. And then we watch our thoughts, appealing silently to Him Who sees the elements of truth in them. Let Him evaluate each thought that comes to mind, remove the elements of dreams, and give them back to you as clean ideas that do not contradict the Will of God. “Clean” describes the Eternal Love of God.

14 Give Him your thoughts, and He will give them back as miracles – washed clean by His Love – which joyously proclaim the wholeness and the happiness God wills His Son as proof of His eternal Love. Would You not will to feel this Love, allow its transformation? And as each thought is thus transformed, it takes on healing power from the Mind Which saw the truth in it and failed to be deceived by what was falsely added. All the threads of fantasy are gone, and what remains is unified into a perfect thought that offers its perfection everywhere. Imagine thinking only holy thoughts! You know that You can.

15Spend 15 minutes thus when you awake and gladly give another 15 more before you go to sleep. Your ministry begins as all your thoughts are purified. So are you taught to teach the Son of God the holy lesson of his sanctity. No one can fail to listen when you hear the Voice for God give honor to God’s Son. It is a sweet song. Quite fitting for You. And everyone will share the thoughts with you which He has retranslated in your mind.

16 Such is your Eastertide. And so you lay the gift of snow-white lilies on the world, replacing witnesses to sin and death.All those awful pictures are now transformed by Your Purity. Through your transfiguration is the world redeemed and joyfully released from guilt. Now do we lift our resurrected minds in gladness and in gratitude to Him Who has restored our sanity to us. Can You feel such joyous relief as this, flooding consciousness, filling You with joy?

17 And we will hourly remember Him Who is salvation and deliverance. As we give thanks the world unites with us and happily accepts our holy thoughts which Heaven has corrected and made pure. This is an amazing transformation. Now has our ministry begun at last, to carry round the world the joyous news that truth has no illusions and the peace of God, through us, belongs to everyone. Look how Your “little willingness” has blessed the entire world!

REVIEW IV

REVIEW IV

L e s s o n  150

My mind holds only what I think with God.

So I will watch My thinking and correct any thought that slips out of line with God!

[139] I will accept Atonement for myself.

I Love Be-ing One with the Love of God. For Atonement is to be at-One-ment. On the other hand, separation is extremely lonely.

[140] Only salvation can be said to cure.

For Your being in the dream is the origin of sickness. Therefore, Awakening is both the healer and the healing.

 

REVIEW IV ~ INTRODUCTION

1 Now we review again, this time aware we are preparing for the second part of learning how the truth can be applied.  How useful is it! Today we will begin to concentrate on readiness for what will follow next.  A willingness to change Our minds about what We really want. Such is our aim for this review and for the lessons following. Thus we review the recent lessons and their central thoughts in such a way as will facilitate the readiness which we would now achieve. 

I speak here of an enthusiasm and a readiness for Awakening.  I ask at least a little willingness for it to happen.  Better yet, a great enthusiasm!!
 
2 There is a central theme that unifies each step in the review we undertake, which can be simply stated in these words:
 
3 My mind holds only what I think with God.
No other thoughts have any importance!  My mind has one function, and that is not to be an ego.  It is to be the Holy Son of God.  For it is Mind that is both God and His Holy Son, and They are not a body.  They are Consciousness.
4 This is a fact and represents the truth of what you are and what your Father is. He is but Your Source; You are His Offspring. It’s very lovely, and very simple. It is this thought by which the Father gave creation to the Son, establishing the Son as co-creator with Himself.  Just what does “co-creator” really mean?
To understand this You must first comprehend that all Creation is of Mind, i.e. it is mental.  This point is crucial.  Your physics says it clearly.  “Matter cannot be created” – obviously then, it can’t “be destroyed” for it just isn’t.  God knows naught of matter, creating with but a word describing an idea.  “Let there be Light” and there it was, and is.
Ideas flow from Mind, not non-existent ‘matter’.  It follows naturally ideas are consciousness, and therefore, permanent, thus quite eternal.
We surely can say that God is thinking You, thus You are always on His Mind.  In these clear words of Tennyson: “Closer is He than Spirit, nearer than hands and feet.”
As God is Thought ongoing, Eternal Mind, then so are You.
His Consciousness, expressing You as consciousness, gifts You with Universal Thought as well. For All Things do exist as Mind.
The limited human ‘mind’ does tend to think of all things as material, yet the entire Universe is Spirit.
It is this thought which fully guarantees salvation to the Son. God Be-ing You, You must be forever. For in his mind no thoughts can dwell but those his Father shares. Lack of forgiveness blocks this thought from his awareness. Yet it is forever true.  All thought of God is Love, and unforgiveness isn’t loving.
 
5 Let us begin our preparation with some understanding of the many forms in which the lack of true forgiveness may be carefully concealed. Because they are illusions, they are not perceived to be but what they are-defenses which protect your unforgiving thoughts from being seen and recognized. How many of You have read Lesson 97: I am Spirit, and not “grokked” it?  For it lies beyond Your remembered experiences. Attached, as You are, to the ‘physical’, You’ll do anything to hide from knowing You are Spirit, including loveless thoughts. Their purpose is to show you something else and hold correction off through self-deceptions made to take its place.  The ego is a master at unnecessary defence.
 
6 And yet your mind holds only what you think with God.  These other seeming thoughts are deluded illusions; You might say they are over kill, yet the ego stops at nothing to keep control of You, including killing!  You can’t trust ego. Your self-deceptions – which flow from ego – cannot take the place of truth. No more than can a child who throws a stick into the ocean change the coming and the going of the tides, the warming of the water by the sun, the silver of the moon on it by night. So do we start each practice period in this review with readying our minds to understand the lessons that we read and see the meaning which they offer us.  You get the gist here?  God is the only power that there is!  For sure, the ego is doomed to failure.
7 Begin each day with time devoted to the preparation of your mind to learn what each idea you will review that day can offer you in freedom and in peace. Open your mind and clear it of all thoughts that would deceive, and let this thought alone engage it fully and remove the rest:
8 My mind holds only what I think with God
Thoughts of Peace and Love, kindness, happiness, always intelligence.  The thoughts of God are supremely useful.
9 Five minutes with this thought will be enough to set the day along the lines which God appointed and to place His Mind in charge of all the thoughts you will receive that day. Would You not be host to the Mind of God rather than ego?  They will not come from you alone, for they will all be shared with Him. And so each one will bring the message of His Love to you, returning messages of yours to Him. The Sun does ‘co-create’ the Light through the Rays.  Just so does the Mind of God extend Itself through You. As the Sun shines as the Rays, God shines as You.  So will communion with the Lord of Hosts be yours, as He Himself has willed it be. And as His own completion joins with Him, so will He join with you who are complete as you unite with Him and He with you.  As the Rays express the Sun, so do You, likewise, as You are willing, express God.  The difference between You and the Ray is that the Ray never thought It had something better to do.
 
10After your preparation, merely read each of the two ideas assigned to you to be reviewed that day. Then close your eyes and say them slowly to yourself. There is no hurry now, for you are using time for its intended purpose. (Which is the Waken.) Let each word shine with the meaning God has given it as it was given to you through His Voice. Let each idea that you review that day give you the gift which He has laid in it for you to have of Him. And we will use no format for our practicing but this:
That these ideas may be an intrinsic part of You again.
11 Each hour of the day bring to your mind the thought with which the day began and spend a quiet moment with it. Then repeat the two ideas you practice for the day unhurriedly, with time enough to see the gifts which they contain for you, and let them be received where they were meant to be. We add no other thoughts, but let them be the messages they are. We need no more than this to give us happiness and rest and endless quiet, perfect certainty, and all our Father wills that we receive as the inheritance we have of Him.  Each Lesson contains the power to Awaken Your native happiness in You.  This is My promise.
 
12 Each day of practicing, as we review, we close as we began, repeating first the thought that made the day a special time of blessing and of happiness for us and through our faithfulness restored the world from darkness to the light, from grief to joy, from pain to peace, from sin to holiness.  You’re mending broken hearts by the millions. God offers thanks to you who practice thus the keeping of His Word. And as you give your mind to the ideas for the day again before you sleep, His gratitude surrounds you in the peace wherein He wills you be forever and are learning now to claim again as your inheritance.
In the world an inheritance means money; as Heaven it’s happiness and peace, which the world thinks it will get from money.  You could say these Lessons are a bargain.  God’s Gifts are for free.
 *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
     1 A note on Brother’s use of the word “Others”: It is not just that it is gender-free, but all-inclusive of all Be-ing whether a Brother or a Sister, a blade of grass or a star; as in St. Francis’ use of Brother Sun, Sister Moon.
From Wikipedia: (St. Francis) He believed that nature itself was the mirror of God. He called all creatures his “brothers” and “sisters,” and even preached to the birds and supposedly persuaded a wolf to stop attacking some locals if they agreed to feed the wolf. In his “Canticle of the Creatures” (“Praises of Creatures” or “Canticle of the Sun”), he mentioned the “Brother Sun” and “Sister Moon,”

REVIEW IV

L e s s o n  149

My mind holds only what I think with God.

What else do I want? The ego thoughts are only confusing. When God thinks for Me, I’m clear and happy. God is My Right Mind.

[137] When I am healed, I am not healed alone. 

Again, I am part of a grand, marvelous, stupendous whole. Each One of Us is crucial to the Whole.

[138] Heaven is the decision I must make.

The only hell there is is the choice for being in the dream. I will, instead, to decide for Heaven!

The point here is to clearly understand that either Heaven or hell are choices that You make. And it’s one or the other. You can choose again! (Since choosing to dream, You’ve all chosen hell.)  At any time You can just change Your mind.

To understand this You must first comprehend that all Creation is of Mind, i.e. it is mental.  This point is crucial.  Your physics says it clearly.  “Matter cannot be created” – obviously then, it can’t “be destroyed” for it just isn’t.  God knows naught of matter, creating with but a word describing an idea.  “Let there be Light” and there it was, and is.
Ideas flow from Mind, not non-existent ‘matter’.  It follows naturally ideas are consciousness, and therefore, permanent, thus quite eternal.
We surely can say that God is thinking You, thus You are always on His Mind.  In these clear words of Tennyson: “Closer is He than Spirit, nearer than hands and feet.”
As God is Thought ongoing, Eternal Mind, then so are You.
His Consciousness, expressing You as consciousness, gifts You with Universal Thought as well. For All Things do exist as Mind.
The limited human ‘mind’ does tend to think of all things as material, yet the entire Universe is Spirit.
It is this thought which fully guarantees salvation to the Son. God Be-ing You, You must be forever. For in his mind no thoughts can dwell but those his Father shares. Lack of forgiveness blocks this thought from his awareness. Yet it is forever true.  All thought of God is Love, and unforgiveness isn’t loving.
 
5 Let us begin our preparation with some understanding of the many forms in which the lack of true forgiveness may be carefully concealed. Because they are illusions, they are not perceived to be but what they are-defenses which protect your unforgiving thoughts from being seen and recognized. How many of You have read Lesson 97: I am Spirit, and not “grokked” it?  For it lies beyond Your remembered experiences. Attached, as You are, to the ‘physical’, You’ll do anything to hide from knowing You are Spirit, including loveless thoughts. Their purpose is to show you something else and hold correction off through self-deceptions made to take its place.  The ego is a master at unnecessary defence.
 
6 And yet your mind holds only what you think with God.  These other seeming thoughts are deluded illusions; You might say they are over kill, yet the ego stops at nothing to keep control of You, including killing!  You can’t trust ego. Your self-deceptions – which flow from ego – cannot take the place of truth. No more than can a child who throws a stick into the ocean change the coming and the going of the tides, the warming of the water by the sun, the silver of the moon on it by night. So do we start each practice period in this review with readying our minds to understand the lessons that we read and see the meaning which they offer us.  You get the gist here?  God is the only power that there is!  For sure, the ego is doomed to failure.
7 Begin each day with time devoted to the preparation of your mind to learn what each idea you will review that day can offer you in freedom and in peace. Open your mind and clear it of all thoughts that would deceive, and let this thought alone engage it fully and remove the rest:
8 My mind holds only what I think with God
Thoughts of Peace and Love, kindness, happiness, always intelligence.  The thoughts of God are supremely useful.
9 Five minutes with this thought will be enough to set the day along the lines which God appointed and to place His Mind in charge of all the thoughts you will receive that day. Would You not be host to the Mind of God rather than ego?  They will not come from you alone, for they will all be shared with Him. And so each one will bring the message of His Love to you, returning messages of yours to Him. The Sun does ‘co-create’ the Light through the Rays.  Just so does the Mind of God extend Itself through You. As the Sun shines as the Rays, God shines as You.  So will communion with the Lord of Hosts be yours, as He Himself has willed it be. And as His own completion joins with Him, so will He join with you who are complete as you unite with Him and He with you.  As the Rays express the Sun, so do You, likewise, as You are willing, express God.  The difference between You and the Ray is that the Ray never thought It had something better to do.
 
10After your preparation, merely read each of the two ideas assigned to you to be reviewed that day. Then close your eyes and say them slowly to yourself. There is no hurry now, for you are using time for its intended purpose. (Which is the Waken.) Let each word shine with the meaning God has given it as it was given to you through His Voice. Let each idea that you review that day give you the gift which He has laid in it for you to have of Him. And we will use no format for our practicing but this:
That these ideas may be an intrinsic part of You again.
11 Each hour of the day bring to your mind the thought with which the day began and spend a quiet moment with it. Then repeat the two ideas you practice for the day unhurriedly, with time enough to see the gifts which they contain for you, and let them be received where they were meant to be. We add no other thoughts, but let them be the messages they are. We need no more than this to give us happiness and rest and endless quiet, perfect certainty, and all our Father wills that we receive as the inheritance we have of Him.  Each Lesson contains the power to Awaken Your native happiness in You.  This is My promise.
 
12 Each day of practicing, as we review, we close as we began, repeating first the thought that made the day a special time of blessing and of happiness for us and through our faithfulness restored the world from darkness to the light, from grief to joy, from pain to peace, from sin to holiness.  You’re mending broken hearts by the millions. God offers thanks to you who practice thus the keeping of His Word. And as you give your mind to the ideas for the day again before you sleep, His gratitude surrounds you in the peace wherein He wills you be forever and are learning now to claim again as your inheritance.
In the world an inheritance means money; as Heaven it’s happiness and peace, which the world thinks it will get from money.  You could say these Lessons are a bargain.  God’s Gifts are for free.

 1 A note on Brother’s use of the word “Others”: It is not just that it is gender-free, but all-inclusive of all Be-ing whether a Brother or a Sister, a blade of grass or a star; as in St. Francis’ use of Brother Sun, Sister Moon.
From Wikipedia: (St. Francis) He believed that nature itself was the mirror of God. He called all creatures his “brothers” and “sisters,” and even preached to the birds and supposedly persuaded a wolf to stop attacking some locals if they agreed to feed the wolf. In his “Canticle of the Creatures” (“Praises of Creatures” or “Canticle of the Sun”), he mentioned the “Brother Sun” and “Sister Moon,”

REVIEW IV

L e s s o n  148

My mind holds only what I think with God.

Thus it is joy-filled; God’s thoughts are always happy.

[135] If I defend myself, I am attacked. So must I think, or there would be no need to defend. Yes. To the ego mind this seems a conundrum, a problem intricate and difficult to find solution. For it would seem that if I don’t defend Myself, I am obviously attacked.

­­­The other side of this is if You don’t defend Yourself, You surely will be attacked. So says the ego.

[­­­136] Sickness is a defense against the truth. A blatant lie about Your perfection. Yet does it always serve a purpose. Eliminate the purpose and You’re healed.

 

REVIEW IV ~ INTRODUCTION

1 Now we review again, this time aware we are preparing for the second part of learning how the truth can be applied.  How useful is it! Today we will begin to concentrate on readiness for what will follow next.  A willingness to change Our minds about what We really want. Such is our aim for this review and for the lessons following. Thus we review the recent lessons and their central thoughts in such a way as will facilitate the readiness which we would now achieve. 

I speak here of an enthusiasm and a readiness for Awakening.  I ask at least a little willingness for it to happen.  Better yet, a great enthusiasm!!
 
2 There is a central theme that unifies each step in the review we undertake, which can be simply stated in these words:
 
3 My mind holds only what I think with God.
No other thoughts have any importance!  My mind has one function, and that is not to be an ego.  It is to be the Holy Son of God.  For it is Mind that is both God and His Holy Son, and They are not a body.  They are Consciousness.
4 This is a fact and represents the truth of what you are and what your Father is. He is but Your Source; You are His Offspring. It’s very lovely, and very simple. It is this thought by which the Father gave creation to the Son, establishing the Son as co-creator with Himself.  Just what does “co-creator” really mean?

REVIEW IV

L e s s o n  147

My mind holds only what I think with God.

There is but One Mind, and God is It, not the ego. This can’t be said too often. It is that important.

[133] I will not value what is valueless.

Although I’ve been doing that for eons. Now I learn what is of real value.

[134] Let me perceive forgiveness as it is.

Is this the pearl of great price of which You have often spoken? Yes it is. Seek nothing else until this work is accomplished.

REVIEW IV

L e s s o n  146

My mind holds only what I think with God.

They’re the only thoughts that are worth having.

[131] No one can fail who asks to reach the truth.

This is the worthiest goal of Dreamers, for Truth is but another Name for God. For Truth does bring freedom from the ego.

[132] I loose the world from all I thought it was. I see the world but through misperception. I thought dreams were real. Now I am learning to see differently. What a great relief! It’s being shown to Me how beliefs shape our reality. It isn’t pretty. The good news is that We can change Our mind, right at this minute!

REVIEW IV ~ INTRODUCTION

1 Now we review again, this time aware we are preparing for the second part of learning how the truth can be applied.  How useful is it! Today we will begin to concentrate on readiness for what will follow next.  A willingness to change Our minds about what We really want. Such is our aim for this review and for the lessons following. Thus we review the recent lessons and their central thoughts in such a way as will facilitate the readiness which we would now achieve. 

I speak here of an enthusiasm and a readiness for Awakening.  I ask at least a little willingness for it to happen.  Better yet, a great enthusiasm!!
 
2 There is a central theme that unifies each step in the review we undertake, which can be simply stated in these words:
 
3 My mind holds only what I think with God.
No other thoughts have any importance!  My mind has one function, and that is not to be an ego.  It is to be the Holy Son of God.  For it is Mind that is both God and His Holy Son, and They are not a body.  They are Consciousness.
4 This is a fact and represents the truth of what you are and what your Father is. He is but Your Source; You are His Offspring. It’s very lovely, and very simple. It is this thought by which the Father gave creation to the Son, establishing the Son as co-creator with Himself.  Just what does “co-creator” really mean?
To understand this You must first comprehend that all Creation is of Mind, i.e. it is mental.  This point is crucial.  Your physics says it clearly.  “Matter cannot be created” – obviously then, it can’t “be destroyed” for it just isn’t.  God knows naught of matter, creating with but a word describing an idea.  “Let there be Light” and there it was, and is.
Ideas flow from Mind, not non-existent ‘matter’.  It follows naturally ideas are consciousness, and therefore, permanent, thus quite eternal.
We surely can say that God is thinking You, thus You are always on His Mind.  In these clear words of Tennyson: “Closer is He than Spirit, nearer than hands and feet.”
As God is Thought ongoing, Eternal Mind, then so are You.
His Consciousness, expressing You as consciousness, gifts You with Universal Thought as well. For All Things do exist as Mind.
The limited human ‘mind’ does tend to think of all things as material, yet the entire Universe is Spirit.
It is this thought which fully guarantees salvation to the Son. God Be-ing You, You must be forever. For in his mind no thoughts can dwell but those his Father shares. Lack of forgiveness blocks this thought from his awareness. Yet it is forever true.  All thought of God is Love, and unforgiveness isn’t loving.
 
5 Let us begin our preparation with some understanding of the many forms in which the lack of true forgiveness may be carefully concealed. Because they are illusions, they are not perceived to be but what they are-defenses which protect your unforgiving thoughts from being seen and recognized. How many of You have read Lesson 97: I am Spirit, and not “grokked” it?  For it lies beyond Your remembered experiences. Attached, as You are, to the ‘physical’, You’ll do anything to hide from knowing You are Spirit, including loveless thoughts. Their purpose is to show you something else and hold correction off through self-deceptions made to take its place.  The ego is a master at unnecessary defence.
 
6 And yet your mind holds only what you think with God.  These other seeming thoughts are deluded illusions; You might say they are over kill, yet the ego stops at nothing to keep control of You, including killing!  You can’t trust ego. Your self-deceptions – which flow from ego – cannot take the place of truth. No more than can a child who throws a stick into the ocean change the coming and the going of the tides, the warming of the water by the sun, the silver of the moon on it by night. So do we start each practice period in this review with readying our minds to understand the lessons that we read and see the meaning which they offer us.  You get the gist here?  God is the only power that there is!  For sure, the ego is doomed to failure.
7 Begin each day with time devoted to the preparation of your mind to learn what each idea you will review that day can offer you in freedom and in peace. Open your mind and clear it of all thoughts that would deceive, and let this thought alone engage it fully and remove the rest:
8 My mind holds only what I think with God
Thoughts of Peace and Love, kindness, happiness, always intelligence.  The thoughts of God are supremely useful.
9 Five minutes with this thought will be enough to set the day along the lines which God appointed and to place His Mind in charge of all the thoughts you will receive that day. Would You not be host to the Mind of God rather than ego?  They will not come from you alone, for they will all be shared with Him. And so each one will bring the message of His Love to you, returning messages of yours to Him. The Sun does ‘co-create’ the Light through the Rays.  Just so does the Mind of God extend Itself through You. As the Sun shines as the Rays, God shines as You.  So will communion with the Lord of Hosts be yours, as He Himself has willed it be. And as His own completion joins with Him, so will He join with you who are complete as you unite with Him and He with you.  As the Rays express the Sun, so do You, likewise, as You are willing, express God.  The difference between You and the Ray is that the Ray never thought It had something better to do.
 
10After your preparation, merely read each of the two ideas assigned to you to be reviewed that day. Then close your eyes and say them slowly to yourself. There is no hurry now, for you are using time for its intended purpose. (Which is the Waken.) Let each word shine with the meaning God has given it as it was given to you through His Voice. Let each idea that you review that day give you the gift which He has laid in it for you to have of Him. And we will use no format for our practicing but this:
That these ideas may be an intrinsic part of You again.
11 Each hour of the day bring to your mind the thought with which the day began and spend a quiet moment with it. Then repeat the two ideas you practice for the day unhurriedly, with time enough to see the gifts which they contain for you, and let them be received where they were meant to be. We add no other thoughts, but let them be the messages they are. We need no more than this to give us happiness and rest and endless quiet, perfect certainty, and all our Father wills that we receive as the inheritance we have of Him.  Each Lesson contains the power to Awaken Your native happiness in You.  This is My promise.
 
12 Each day of practicing, as we review, we close as we began, repeating first the thought that made the day a special time of blessing and of happiness for us and through our faithfulness restored the world from darkness to the light, from grief to joy, from pain to peace, from sin to holiness.  You’re mending broken hearts by the millions. God offers thanks to you who practice thus the keeping of His Word. And as you give your mind to the ideas for the day again before you sleep, His gratitude surrounds you in the peace wherein He wills you be forever and are learning now to claim again as your inheritance.
In the world an inheritance means money; as Heaven it’s happiness and peace, which the world thinks it will get from money.  You could say these Lessons are a bargain.  God’s Gifts are for free.

     1 A note on Brother’s use of the word “Others”: It is not just that it is gender-free, but all-inclusive of all Be-ing whether a Brother or a Sister, a blade of grass or a star; as in St. Francis’ use of Brother Sun, Sister Moon.
From Wikipedia: (St. Francis) He believed that nature itself was the mirror of God. He called all creatures his “brothers” and “sisters,” and even preached to the birds and supposedly persuaded a wolf to stop attacking some locals if they agreed to feed the wolf. In his “Canticle of the Creatures” (“Praises of Creatures” or “Canticle of the Sun”), he mentioned the “Brother Sun” and “Sister Moon,”
