All things are lessons God would have me learn.
Preferably now! There is a blessing to be found in each and every lesson. Although many of them are far from fun.
1 God does not know of learning. For Reality is like an open book, already always known, yet continually unforlding and extending, and forever new. Yet His Will extends to what He does not understand in that He wills the happiness His Son inherited of Him be undisturbed, eternal and forever gaining scope, eternally expanding in the joy of full creation, and eternally open and wholly limitless in Him. You understand this. This is His Will. And thus His Will provides the means to guarantee that it is done. Although it must be done in the imaginary dream, in which the Son of God bumbles about, blind as Mr. Magoo without his glasses.1
2 God sees no contradictions. He sees His belovèd Son but through adoring eyes of Love. So, too, are We to see all Our Others. Yet His Son believes he sees them. The daily news proclaims this loud and clear. Thus he has a need for One Who can correct his erring sight and give him vision that will lead him back to where perception ceases. This is why I came, and this the reason for the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. God does not perceive at all. He knows All as Real. Eyes without Vision have had It returned to them through the Comforter, also known as Holy Spirit. Yet it is He Who gives the means by which perception is made true and beautiful enough to let the light of Heaven shine upon it. For He is Your Source. What He has, You have. It is He Who answers what His Son would contradict and keeps his sinlessness forever safe. He knows You only through Reality, even while You dream.
3God offers no forgiveness, for He knows no sin is possible. His Love sees You but though His perfection. So can You see You and be delighted. And yet He let His holy law of Love be given form in which it could be offered to the world. And He created One Who could perceive what form this law should take, to be received by every mind which had forgotten it as it exists in Heaven and in God. Reminding You of Your Reality, Your Presence as He, Your beauty to see. Thus He encompassed what He could not see nor understand by giving of His Love and making Answer to a question which, though meaningless, His Son had asked of Him. As best You can receive it, God gives You His experience of the Real You. How lovely are You, and how delightful!
4 The One Whom God created to replace the foolish thoughts which crept into the mind of His most holy Son with peace and joy fulfills His function now. Right now are You available to You, and not manana! He redirects each lesson you would teach in hate to one in which forgiveness enters, and returns the hate to love, so that the fear is gone. For hate and fear are one, and Love does dismiss both of them. And now guilt cannot enter, for its source has been excluded as the purpose of the lesson has been changed to guiltlessness; the hatred has been rooted out by love. The Love You had forgotten is the Reality of You. I’m re-minding You.
5 These are the lessons God would have you learn. (Preferably right now!) His Will reflects them all, and they reflect His loving kindness to the Son He loves. Notice how gentle is His correction; how kind, how loving. Each lesson has a central thought, the same in all of them. The form alone is changed, with different circumstances and events, with different characters and different themes apparent but not real. They are the same in fundamental content. Love underlies them. It is this:
6 Forgive and you will see this differently. This takes place in Love, now available, despite Your anger. That “little willingness” does allow it!
7 Certain it is that all distress does not appear to be but unforgiveness. This includes disease. Yet that is the content underneath the form. In other words, no matter how it seems, somewhere You’re ticked off. It is this sameness which makes learning sure because the lesson is so simple that it cannot be rejected in the end. You need but look for what enrages You, even if it’s something very ‘little’. No one can hide forever from a truth so very obvious that it appears in countless forms and yet is recognized as easily in all of them if one but wants to see the simple lesson there. The local deity – that’s You! – has been offended. Let ‘justice’ be done so quickly: off with their heads!
8 Forgive and you will see this differently. You will be amazed at Your sudden great capacity for loving tolerance. Where did it come from?
9 These are the words the Holy Spirit speaks in all your tribulations, all your pain, all suffering regardless of its forms. Let it go, and Love. These are the words with which temptation ends and guilt, abandoned, is revered no more. Let it go, and Love instead of raging. These are the words which end the dream of sin and rid the mind of fear. Let it go, and Love instead of hating. These are the words by which salvation comes to all the world, through a lovely mental transformation.
10 Shall we not learn to say these words when we are tempted to believe that pain is real and death becomes our choice instead of life? Would God make Life so? At the mercy of accident and germ and general deterioration? Shall we not learn to say these words when we have understood their power to release all minds from bondage? These are words which give you power over all events which seem to have been given power over you. You see them rightly when you hold these words in full awareness, and do not forget these words apply to everything you see or any brother looks upon amiss. “All things are lessons God would have me learn.” Then all things must hold potential blessings. Seems hard to believe? Then You are underestimating God!
And that is foolish!
11 How can you tell when you are seeing wrong or someone else is failing to perceive the lesson he should learn? Does pain seem real in the perception? Rather than the observer way to see, which lacks all judgment. If it does, be sure the lesson is not learned. And there remains an unforgiveness hiding in the mind which sees the pain through eyes the mind directs. In other words, You’re still stuck in the dream.
12 God would not have you suffer thus. He Knows You awake! He would help you forgive yourself, which will help You to Love all Your Others. His Son does not remember who he is. That’s You with amnesia, of whom I speak. And God would have him – You, belovèd One – not forget His Love and all the gifts His Love brings with it. Would you now renounce your own salvation? Give up happiness? Would you fail to learn the simple lessons Heaven’s Teacher sets before you – for they are gentle; and kind and simple – that all pain may disappear and God may be remembered by His Son? God Who Loves You so!
13 All things are lessons God would have you learn. He would not leave an unforgiving thought without correction nor one thorn or nail to hurt His sacred Son in any way. You do not realize how very painful is Your thinking, and how much God wills that it be happy. He would ensure his holy rest – speaking here of Yours – remain untroubled and serene, without a care in an eternal home – of Love pure and sweet – which cares for him. And He would have all tears be wiped away with none remaining yet unshed and none but waiting their appointed time to fall. He would end sorrow. For God has willed that laughter should replace each one – every morose thought – and that His Son be free again. And You are that Son.
14 We will attempt today to overcome a thousand seeming obstacles to peace in just one day. It is possible! What’s needed is a holy change of mind. Let mercy come to you more quickly. Do not try to hold it off another day, another minute, or another instant. Remember, ‘mercy’ is another word for ‘loving-kindness’, God’s feelings for You. Time was made for this. A space for healing. Use it today for what its purpose is. Morning and night, devote what time you can to serve its proper aim, and do not let the time be less than meets your deepest need. You are important.
15 Give all you can – fear not; push Yourself out of inertia – and give a little more, for now we would arise in haste and go unto our Father’s house. We have been gone too long, and we would linger here no more. Out of the nightmare! We step into a sweet Reality! And as we practice, let us think about all things we saved to settle by ourselves and kept apart from healing. They’ve been a burden. Let us give them – very cheerfully! – all to Him Who knows the way to look upon them so that they will disappear. Truth is His message; truth His teaching is. His are the lessons God would have us learn. Let Us get with it!
16 Each hour spend a little time today, and in the days to come, in practicing the lesson in forgiveness in the form established for the day. It is an exercise in Your learning Love and what It means to Love Your Neighbour. This a Gift from God to give You freedom. And try to give it application to the happenings the hour brought, so that the next one is free of the one before. The chains of time are easily unloosened in this way. Belovèd Brother, how should I see this? Learn to let this be Your constant question!
17 Let no one hour cast its shadow on the one that follows, and when that one goes, let everything that happens in its course go with it. Be free each instant! Thus will you remain unbound, in peace eternal in the world of time. This is true freedom! This is the lesson God would have you learn: there is a way to look on everything that lets it be to you another step to Him and to salvation of the world. Don’t look at anything alone, for this does cloud Your vision.
18 To all that speaks of terror, answer thus:
19 I will forgive and this will disappear. Dear Holy Spirit! How do I do this? I hear Your words, yet find it hard to do. Now I hear You saying that it’s simple! To just ask: What is My lesson here? And I’ll get My answer. You want Us to trust in every instant.
Okay! Here I am trusting patiently to Your direction.
20 To every apprehension, every care, and every form of suffering, repeat these selfsame words. You will find relief! And then you hold the key that opens Heaven’s gate and brings the Love of God the Father down to earth at last, to raise it up to Heaven. God will take this final step Himself. Do not deny the little steps He asks you take to Him. You know now God is ever-present. Now You need to be! Come back from Your walkabout! And put all Your focus on Our God!
