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.

The Name of God is my inheritance.
As I have said before, Name here is synonymous with His Divinest Nature. That Nature is Yours.
1 You live by symbols. For You are blinded by the dream; blind to God’s Reality/ You have made up names for everything you see, when really all there is is Holy One. Each one becomes a separate entity, no longer Part of God in their own ‘mind’, identified by its own name. By this you carve it out of unity. By this you designate its special attributes and set it off from other things by emphasizing space surrounding it. This space you lay between all things to which you give a different name—all happenings in terms of place and time, all bodies which are greeted by a name. This is so different from Reality, that almost everything has been lost, while You dally in Your insane dreaming.
2 This space you see as setting off all things from one another is the means by which the world’s perception is achieved. You see something where nothing is and see as well nothing where there is unity—a space between all things, between all things and you. Hence: separation. First You separated Yourselves off from God, and then from each Other. Oneness splintered into many. Oh so very, very, very many. Thus do you think that you have given life in separation. Think for a moment: All things come from God; why would there be a need for procreation? But You must usurp all things from Him. By this split you think you are established as a unity which functions with an independent will; You have become creator of Yourself.
3 What are these names by which the world becomes a series of discrete events, of things un-unified, of bodies kept apart and holding bits of mind as separate awarenesses? For this surely is not how it is as God’s Reality. You gave these names to them, establishing perception as you wished to have perception be. In other words, You saw what You wanted, and this hasn’t changed. The nameless things – all separate parts – were given names and thus reality was given them as well. For what is named is given meaning and will then be seen as meaningful, a cause of true effects with consequence inherent in itself. So did You reshape God’s Reality, in Your dreaming mind.
4 This is the way reality is made by partial vision, purposefully set against the given truth. With but the intention to conquer it. Its enemy is wholeness. It loves fragmentation, and thrives on it. It conceives of little things and looks upon them. And a lack of space, a sense of unity or vision which sees differently become the threats which it must overcome, conflict with, and deny. No space between all things is incomprehensible, impossible, to ego. You see disconnect.
5 Yet does this other vision still remain a natural direction for the mind to channel its perception. You now begin to see the gap, the great disconnection in the mind that is the Son of God, lost long ago in dreaming. It is hard to teach the mind a thousand alien names and thousands more. Yet you believe this is what learning means—its one essential goal by which communication is achieved and concepts can be meaningfully shared. Hence, fragmentation became the rule replacing, hiding One. The loss of Wholeness is unbearable, leading to the invention of sleeping, to gain some rellief.
6 This is the sum of the inheritance the world bestows. This is just what all of You have chosen. You made up the world! And everyone who learns to think that it is so accepts the signs and symbols which assert the world is real. Choose for it and You get the whole shebang! It is for this they stand, quite militantly, . They leave no doubt that what is named is there. It can be seen, as is anticipated. What denies that it is true is but illusion, for it is the ultimate reality. To question it is madness; to accept its presence is the proof of sanity. You see the dream is inside out and upside-down, and cockeyed. Like going through the looking glass and then getting stuck in there.
7 Such is the teaching of the world. None of it is true! It is a phase of learning everyone who comes must go through. For You came for it, albeit so unintentionally! But the sooner he perceives on what it rests, how questionable are its premises, how doubtful its results, the sooner does he question its effects. And then will He cease to believe in it. Learning which stops with what the world would teach stops short of meaning. You have learned the lies; so many of them! In its proper place, it serves but as a starting point from which another kind of learning can begin, a new perception can be gained, and all the arbitrary names the world bestows can be withdrawn as they are raised to doubt. You will have a new way of seeing things.
8 Think not you made the world. Illusions, yes! But what is true in earth and Heaven is beyond your naming. Neither earth nor Heavenare in any way material. When you call upon a brother, it is to his body that you make appeal. His mind You believe to be his so-called ‘brain’, which You believe doe run His body. His true identity – as the Son of God – is hidden from you by what you believe he really is: a matter mortal. His body makes response to what you call him, for his mind consents to take the name you give him as his own. And thus his unity is twice denied, for you perceive him separate from you, and he accepts this separate name as his. In such a way His Oneness is denied, right along with Yours.
9 It would indeed be strange if you were asked to go beyond all symbols of the world, forgetting them forever; You would not know how, yet were asked to take a teaching function. For this is what I am asking of You. You have need to use the symbols of the world a while. But be you not deceived by them as well. They do not stand for anything at all, yet are familiar, and in your practicing, it is this thought that will release you from them. Right now You think they are Reality; so do Those You’ll teach. They become but means by which you can communicate in ways the world can understand, but which you recognize is not the unity where true communication can be found. You will, one day, clearly understand this.
10 Thus what you need are intervals each day in which the learning of the world becomes a transitory phase—a prison house from which you go into the sunlight and forget the darkness. Does not this describe Your experience of listening to Me for this Guidance? Through Our Communion, Here you understand the Word, the Name which God has given you; the one identity which all things share; the one acknowledgment of what is true. This can but be experienced, not taught. You cannot yet stay. And then step back to darkness, not because you think it real, but only to proclaim its unreality in terms which still have meaning in the world which darkness rules. So You earn from Me and teach Your Others.
11 Use all the little names and symbols which delineate the world of darkness. As yet You know no others, and You will! While You wait, do not think the world is real. It is illusions, in spite of their seeming Reality. Yet accept them not as your reality. They surely aren’t! The Holy Spirit uses all of them, but He does not forget creation has one Name, one Meaning, and a single Source Which unifies all things within Itself. Don’t be frustrated with impatience, for You will understand. Already, You do know more than You think. Use all the names the world bestows on them but for convenience, yet do not forget they share the Name of God along with you. In other words, All Things are Your Brothers!
12 God has no name. Just Divine Nature. And yet His Name becomes the final lesson that all things are one, and at this lesson does all learning end. All names are unified; all space is filled with truth’s reflection. Worry not if some of what I say is hard to understand. Every gap is closed and separation healed. The Name of God is the inheritance He gave to those who chose the teaching of the world to take the place of Heaven. The Divine Nature. Just be curious! In our practicing, our purpose is to let our minds accept what He has given as the answer to the pitiful inheritance you made as fitting tribute to the Son He loves. Oh how You are Loved!
13 No one can fail who seeks the meaning of the Name of God. Who longs to be again His Nature: Love. Experience must come to supplement the Word. And come it surely will. Do not worry. But first you must accept one Name for all reality, and realize the many names you gave its aspects have distorted what you see but have not interfered with truth at all. In other words, apply this Truth to Your Brother; then It’s Yours! One Name we bring into our practicing. One Name we use to unify our sight. Keep remembering that You are but Love, which is God’s first Name and Nature.
14 And though we use a different name for each awareness of an aspect of God’s Son, we understand that they have but one Name, – His synonyms must be – are – all the same. They make up the One – Which He has given them. It is this Name we use in practicing. And through Its use, all foolish separations disappear which kept us blind. This is a wonderful experience! And we are given strength to see beyond them. The Beauty of this takes away My breath. I am so grateful! Now our sight is blessed with blessings we can give as we receive. Now do You begin but to experience what You don’t yet fully understand. Worry not! You will
15 Father, our Name is Yours. And Yours Our Nature. In It we are united with all living things and You Who are their one Creator. What we made and call by many different names is but a shadow we have tried to cast across Your own reality. It’s Your Reality I long to know; not My empty dreams. And we are glad and thankful we were wrong. For all Our dreams do end unpleasantly. Glad We leave them for Your Reality. All our mistakes we give to You, that we may be absolved of all effects our errors seemed to have. All things were dreaming. And we accept the truth You give in place of every one of them. Your Name is our salvation and escape from what we made. It’s Our true Nature, for We are as You, belovèd Father, belovèd Mother. Your Name unites us in the oneness which is our inheritance and peace. For We are always One with each Other. Amen.
