Beyond this world there is a world I want.
Believing this dream world real does hide Reality from Me. A belief might seem to be ephemeral, yet it has made solidity feel very real to Me.
1 This is the thought which follows from the one we practiced yesterday. You cannot stop with the idea the world is worthless, for unless you see that there is something else to hope for, you will only be depressed.
Truthfully, Reality is on truly beyond appealing! It is wonderful!
Our emphasis is not on giving up the world but on exchanging it for what is far more satisfying, filled with joy, and capable of offering you peace. Think you this world can offer that to you?
Reality can do this for It is quite fascinating; so much more than dreams. And never boring, for it is always lovely, fresh, and new.
2 It might be worth a little time to think once more about the value of this world.
Just listen to some news broadcast or read on the computer or a newspaper.
Perhaps you will concede there is no loss in letting go all thought of value here.
This is not the Home of the Son of God. S/He is a stranger in a stranger land. For this home just belongs to the ego.
The world you see is merciless indeed, unstable, cruel, unconcerned with you, quick to avenge, and pitiless with hate. It gives but to rescind and takes away all things that you have cherished for a while. No lasting love is found, for none is here. This is the world of time, where all things end.
Reality neither begins nor ends. Its realm is quite Infinite Forever.
3 Is it a loss to find a world instead where losing is impossible, where love endures forever, hate cannot exist, and vengeance has no meaning?
In other words, a world that is happy.
Is it loss to find all things you really want and know they have no ending, and they will remain exactly as you want them throughout time?
No things are boring, for all things are new in every instant. And there is still more to be eternally experienced.
4 Yet even they will be exchanged at last for what we cannot speak of, for you go from there to where words fail entirely, into a silence where the language is unspoken and yet surely understood.
Speaking unfolds into mental Knowing that’s Universal. It is terrific! I am filled with Joy to know the Son of God is soon Whole again, coming back in to His rightful Mind! What seems now to be singular, and what seems to be plural.
Communication, unambiguous and plain as day, remains unlimited for all eternity. And God Himself speaks to His Son as His Son speaks to Him. Their language has no words,
– it does not need them –
for what they say cannot be symbolized. Their knowledge is direct and wholly shared and wholly one.
You could call it the Natural Knowing of the Father and the Son, Be-ing One.
5 How far away from this are you who stay bound to this world.
Yet – at any moment – You can mentally release Your chains and embrace freedom. You seem stuck dreaming.
And yet how near are you when you exchange it for the world you want. Now is the last step certain; now you stand an instant’s space away from timelessness.
You stand with great peace in eternal Now.
Here can you but look forward, never back to see again the world you do not want. Here is the world that comes to take its place as you unbind your mind from little things the world sets forth to keep you prisoner there.
You are already free; shake off Your bonds.
Value them not, and they will disappear. Esteem them, and they will seem real to you.
As usual, the choice is always Yours.
6 Such is the choice. Let go of Your addiction to this dream. It’s really awful! What loss can be for you in choosing not to value nothingness?
Could nothing have a value? So how much is it worth to You?
This world holds nothing that you really want, but what you choose instead you want indeed!
How could this be My choice? Am I insane?
Let it be given you today.
Yet something like to Heaven waits so very patiently for Me to change My mind.
It waits but for your choosing it to take the place of all the things you seek but do not want.
What You really want is to be holy.
7 Practice your willingness to make this change ten minutes in the morning and at night and once more in between. Begin with this:
8 Beyond this world there is a world I want. A world so full of Love that I can almost feel its yearning for Me to return.
I choose to see that world instead of this, – I’m yearning for it –
For here is nothing that I really want.
9 Then close your eyes upon the world you see, and in the silent darkness watch the lights that are not of this world light one by one until where one begins, another ends, losing all meaning as they blend in one.
Feel the kind intention of this Light which comes to welcome You to Your real Home: It’s the Consciousness of Heaven here and now.
10 Today the lights of Heaven bend to you, to shine upon your eyelids as you rest beyond the world of darkness. Here is light your eyes cannot behold. And yet your mind can see it plainly and can understand.
And can feel that You have always known this Light. You just had, for a while, forgotten.
A day of grace is given you today, and we give thanks. This day we realize that what you feared to lose was only loss.
For this dream world You know was never real.
11 Now do we understand there is no loss,
– You can’t lose nothing! –
for we have seen its opposite at last, and we are grateful that the choice is made.
For now You want but what is really Yours.
Remember your decision hourly, and take a moment to confirm your choice by laying by whatever thoughts you have, and dwelling briefly only upon this:
12 The world I see has nothing that I want. It’s old and oh, so very stale to me.
Beyond this world there is a world I want. I am more than willing to allow/express it.~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
