CIMS DAILY LESSON
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.
L e s s o n 123
I thank my Father for His gifts to me.
To not have them would be awful for Me. Thank You God for all Your generosity. Your great kindness means everything to Me.
1 Today let us be thankful.
God, I am full with gratitude to You.
We have come to gentler pathways and to smoother roads.
The world is rough and rocky, and the journey back to God is but smooth and gentle.
There is no thought of turning back and no implacable resistance to the truth. A bit of wavering remains, some small objections, and a little hesitance, but we can well be grateful for our gains, which are far greater than we realize.
I hear You thinking: I’m not at all resisting, wavering, or hesitating … This is so, but for ego resistance.
2 A day devoted now to gratitude will add the benefit of some insight into the real extent of all the gains which you have made; the gifts you have received.
You are far different than You were before I started giving You daily Guidance on the Lessons. This is true for All who read it as well. The desire to understand what Course is meaning does the transformation.
Be glad today in loving thankfulness your Father has not left you to yourself, nor let you wander in the dark alone.
I know that every One who reads these Lessons daily feels this gratitude and more! Here is the bottom line to gratitude:
Be grateful He has saved you from the self you thought you made to take the place of Him and His creation. Give Him thanks today.
Sing hallelujah that You are not merely ‘human’ for You are the Son of God.
3 Give thanks that He has not abandoned you
– a concept inconceivable to God –
and that His Love forever will remain shining on you,
– shining as You too, for You are both the same; God and His Idea, same in nature, and a different name –
forever without change. Give thanks as well that you are changeless, for the Son He loves is changeless as Himself.
Unaffected by the separation, which is but a dream; albeit a dream that’s quite convincing.
Be grateful you are saved.
From the hell You made.
Be glad you have a function in salvation to fulfill.
A grand opportunity to heal the other Parts of You.
Be thankful that your value far transcends your meager gifts and petty judgments of the one whom God established as His Son.
For You are that One.
4 Today in gratitude we lift our hearts above despair and raise our thankful eyes, no longer looking downward to the dust.
We start appreciating the Gift of Reality constantly being given. And We are grateful for reminders of where We really live.
We sing the song of thankfulness today in honor of the Self Which God has willed to be our true identity in Him.
We begin to breath a sigh of relief, the dream is ending, and We are grateful.
Today we smile on everyone we see and walk with lightened footsteps as we go to do what is appointed us to do. We do not go alone.
For loneliness is forever over.
And we give thanks that in our solitude a Friend has come to speak the saving Word of God to us.
Indeed! Yours truly. It is My pleasure. For I’ve done what You can do: reunite with Holy Spirit.
5 And thanks to you for listening to Him. His Word is soundless if it be not heard,
and is useless if it be not followed.
In thanking Him the thanks are yours as well.
Thank You for hearing.
An unheard message will not save the world, however mighty be the Voice that speaks, however loving may the message be.
So I thank You once again for hearing.
Thanks be to you who heard,
– and wish to live it –
for you become the messenger who brings His Voice with you and let it echo round and round the world.
Remember this true saying: Actions do speak louder than words! So live the message; then do You bring it!
6 Receive the thanks of God today, as you give thanks to Him.
Feel His loving appreciation for Your willingness to share the message by Your living of it.
For He would offer you the thanks you give, since He receives your gifts in loving gratitude and gives them back a thousand and a hundred thousand more than they were given.
That’s really giving! This is why I said: It’s more blessèd to give than to receive.
He will bless your gifts by sharing them with you, and so they grow in power and in strength until they fill the world with gladness and with gratitude.
One individual can truly change the world. Look at Abraham, then Moses. And now look at Me. Abraham knew one God; Moses brought the rules of Love, and I conquered death. The stage is set for You: accept Awakening.
7 Receive His thanks and offer yours to Him for 15 minutes twice today.
Would You not gladly give half an hour of Your day to God?
And you will realize to Whom you offer thanks, and Whom He thanks as you are thanking Him. This holy half an hour given Him will be returned to you in terms of years for every second, power to save the world eons more quickly for your thanks to Him.
Read the news; would You not be glad to alleviate such suffering as You see?
8 Receive His thanks, and you will understand how lovingly He holds you in His Mind, how deep and limitless His care for you, how perfect is His gratitude to you.
Don’t just let these words slip by You. Let them become part of Your Conscious Awareness, ever-present as Your mind, and constantly available to Your awareness now, and forever.
Remember hourly to think of Him and give Him thanks for everything He gave His Son that he might rise above the world remembering his Father and his Self.
Do You think there would have been a resurrection were I not consciously, constantly aware of this? So very ‘dead’ I was to human sense, yet not to My consciousness of Spirit.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
