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!
