Bette Jean Cundiff ~ Sacred Steps

 

Sacred Steps: A Program of Soul Progression

Based on Ancient Yoga and A Course in Miracles

By Bette Jean Cundiff*
~*~*~*~*~*~*~

When I was asked by the author to write the forward to her book, I was extremely honored. I agreed to read the book and then I would decide how I felt about it.

The following is my forward and as you can see, I was very moved by its beauty and artistry as it weaved together Ancient Yoga and A Course in Miracles, both disciplines that I truly love. ~ REJA JANAKI JOY GREEN

FORWARD

In A Course in Miracles our Elder Brother reminds us that there are no accidents.

“There are no accidents in salvation.
Those who are to meet will meet because together
they have the potential for a holy relationship.
They are ready for each other.”

~A Course in Miracles-original edition [ACIM-oe] Manual For Teachers #3 What are the Levels of Teaching?

You have this book in your hands or you are reading it as an eBook and that is no accident. Every decision you have ever made throughout your entire life has brought you to this beautiful moment of NOW. And in this beautiful moment of NOW there is no past. The future is not yet. There is only this Holy Instant in which you are being called once again to LISTEN. LISTEN within for Guidance. LISTEN to your Soul and let it tell you the next right step on your journey without distance. That next right step may very well be these “Sacred Steps”.

I first met Bette Jean Cundiff in New York City in the 1980’s when I attended a workshop she was giving together with Paul Steinberg. Paul was the brother of Saul Steinberg who was the printer of the very first set of the hardback edition of A Course in Miracles through Coleman Graphics. The workshop was called, “Miracle Experiences: The Goals and Healing of Your Special Relationships in ‘A Course in Miracles’ “ and was one of the first I had taken as I began my journey with A Course in Miracles.

Bette had also written “The Children’s Material” which I used as a guide in bringing up my young son using the principles of A Course in Miracles. I owe Bette a debt of gratitude for this material and the benefit my son and I received. I recall my son would turn to me and in his little voice would chide me saying, “Mommy. Where is your happiness?”; Knowing I would remember that it is inside me, and would point to my own heart as we would both smile in remembrance and recognition. ♥

And now we come to “Sacred Steps: A Program for Soul Progression”, Bette’s most current book which appears to be a culmination of the past 30 years of studying, sharing, teaching and writing about what she has learned and what has been ‘given’ to her through inner Guidance.

As a student and teacher of Yoga, as well as a student of A Course in Miracles, I cherish the beautiful and artful integration of ancient yoga with A Course in Miracles that Bette presents here. The ideas are thought provoking and creative but more than that, they are presented in a way that brings a feeling of peace and unconditional love. I felt nurtured and safe and my heart opened to their Truth. The words were more like notes in a symphony and each word and even each letter seemed to be wrapped in LOVE; a LOVE which was almost palpable.

Describing each Chakra, Bette uses color, texture, and feeling to paint an in-depth picture offering a deep experience of their meaning. Then, in-between each description, additional information builds a foundation: Your Electromagnetic Field; The Power of the Universe as the Sacred Serpent; The Body’s Windows [major organs and glands] ; The Earth’s Windows [vortices]; The Celestial Radiance [personal aura]; The Rhythm of Color [Color as waves of energy]. I discovered that this foundation brought with it an appreciation for life.

“…And every time you walk into a room you change the whole electromagnetic energy field by your simple presence.” P30

As well as a sense of renewed responsibility:

Your personal and radiant aura offers your message of peace and love to the world. It surrounds, you, caresses you and gently or powerfully touches the people in your life.” P46

Bette beautifully presents the chakras as related to the levels of Soul evolution but then offers various modalities such as Sacred symbols [geometrics] as well as movement and affirmations to help with the integration. And finally there is practical application with a personal training program offered in the form of a Workbook.

My sense is that this book is a blessed gift offered to your Soul from another aspect of the Infinitude which is One with you. It’s truly a gift of Love to Love. There is only this Holy Instant in which you are being called once again to LISTEN. LISTEN within for Guidance. LISTEN to your Soul and let it tell you the next right step on your journey without distance. That next right step may very well be these “Sacred Steps”.

*Bette Cundiff has been a teacher of A Course in Miracles since 1977 and has traveled throughout the US, Canada and Australia setting up conferences which teach about forgiveness. She is author of the internationally recognized children’s version of A Course in Miracles, “The Children’s Material” and has also produced a full miracles course in a novel for the young reader “Help is on the Way!”. In addition Bette is author of “Side by Side, the Twelve Steps and A Course in Miracles”. Many of her books have been translated into Spanish.

Here is Bette, in her own words:

In 1976 a powerful light filled ‘voice’ impressed onto my mind wonderful thoughts that I could not help but write down. Writing books naturally followed. Over the years this Guiding Light has occasionally assumed a sense of personality, but no matter, I knew the wisdom given to me came from That which fills us, directs us and of course loves us all. For more than thirty years I lectured around the world on spiritual psychology, comparative religions, spirituality, A Course in Miracles, the Twelve Steps and co-dependency recovery and so much more. From that time on, studying, sharing, starting up study groups globally, and writing about what I had learned and what was ‘given to me’ through inner guidance has been my passion.

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  193

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!

CIMS DAILY LESSON

TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face.

Workbook PART I

L e s s o n  107

Truth will correct all errors in my mind.

Truth is just irresistible. Who could ever withstand It, for It is but another name for God and Reality! Sticking with the Truth is like hanging with a friend who always sees the best in You.

1 What can correct illusions but the truth?  

Therefore, We must go to God for absolutely everything, if We would be safe. God is the One Reality; It is forever. The ego dreams that it can create illusions. Yet they are not real, so why believe them? It must be because You prefer to dream. This is an error!

And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered, errors disappear.

This infuriates the ego, which insists that dreams are real, and God, illusion. It is the liar. As I said in Bible times, right “from the beginning”.1 Its myriad ‘creations’ seem quite convincing, and Truth does just dismiss them easily when You stick with it.

They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because without belief they have no life, and so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.

The ego cannot stand the Truth of God; His omnipresence just dismisses it. It is not a complicated process.

2 Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel? Try to remember when there was a time—perhaps a minute, maybe even less—when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe.

For You are, You know. In that instant You could see forever. That one instant is God’s Reality. Ask for the experience forever!

Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity. 

Imagine Be-ing happiness like that. It is Yours for the willingness I ask.

3 Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times and then be multiplied another hundred more. And now you have a hint, not more than just the faintest intimation of the state your mind will rest in when the truth has come.

The ego bitterly resists Your doing this, for You will withdraw Your mind from it without a moment’s hesitation!

4 Without illusions there could be no fear, no doubt, and no attack.

For Reality is happy, perfect.

When truth has come, all pain is over, for there is no room for transitory thoughts and dead ideas to linger in your mind.

For God’s Reality is seen again, and It is happy!

Truth occupies your mind completely, liberating you from all beliefs in the ephemeral. They have no place because the truth has come, and they are nowhere. They cannot be found, for truth is everywhere forever now.

It always has been there; You just refused to see It, for You far preferred to dream.

Now, as the dream gets worse, Truth has become somewhat appealing.

5 When truth has come, it does not stay a while to disappear or change to something else. It does not shift and alter in its form, nor come and go and go and come again.

That is error’s way. Truth is consistent.

It stays exactly as it always was, to be depended on in every need and trusted with a perfect trust in all the seeming difficulties and the doubts that the appearances the world presents engender.

Truth is the only remedy for every need of healing.

They will merely flow away when truth corrects the errors in your mind.

All errors disappear when faced by Truth.  Truth is Light, and Light dispels the darkness.

6 When truth has come, it harbours in its wings the gift of perfect constancy and love which does not falter in the face of pain but looks beyond it, steadily and sure.

What It sees is but Your Reality as the Son of God.

Here is the gift of healing, for the truth needs no defense, and therefore no attack is possible.

Truth is the Healer.

Illusions can be brought to truth to be corrected. But the truth stands far beyond illusions and cannot be brought to them to turn them into truth.

So what is Truth, and what is illusion? It’s very simple. Truth is Spirit, God. All things material – including body – are illusions.

7 Truth does not come and go nor shift nor change, in this appearance now and then in that, evading capture and escaping grasp.

It is consistent and reliable. It never fails You, for It is an experience of God.

It does not hide. It stands in open light, in obvious accessibility. It is impossible that anyone could seek it truly and would not succeed.

Always available, its perfect healing.

8 Today belongs to truth.

And every day throughout Eternity, whether You sleep or whether You’re Awake: Truth ever-present and reliable.

Give truth its due, and it will give you yours. You were not meant to suffer and to die. Your Father wills these dreams be gone.

Don’t hang on to them, for they are useless.

Let truth correct them all. We do not ask for what we do not have. We merely ask for what belongs to us, that we may recognize it as our own.

And so We ask to see Reality.

9 Today we practice on the happy note of certainty that has been born of truth.

We choose to trust wholeheartedly in God. We toss away our crutches, whatever form they have taken. We don’t need them now.

The shaky and unsteady footsteps of illusion is not our approach today.

We walk securely, knowing where We go.

We are as certain of success as we are sure we live and hope and breathe and think. We do not doubt we walk with truth today and count on it to enter into all the exercises that we do this day.

For We have made room for Truth in Our minds, and have given to them inspiration.

10 Begin by asking Him Who goes with you upon this undertaking that He be in your awareness as you go with Him.

Just as He does, You now can walk as Christ.

You are not made of flesh and blood and bone but were created by the self-same Thought which gave the gift of life to Him as well.

Just like Mine, Your Reality is Christ. This Truth is so for every One of Us. What more could You, the Son of God, ask for!

He is your Brother and so like to you your Father knows that you are both the same. It is your Self you ask to go with you, and how could He be absent where you are?

My Self is the Reality of Me.

11 Truth will correct all errors in your mind which tell you you could be apart from Him.

There is no separation from Yourself. What seems to be is not Reality but only seeming. And seeming is not just rhyme but is synonym to dreaming.

You speak to Him today and make your pledge to let His function be fulfilled through you.

Christ function is to Be You: the Holy Son of God You are.

To share His function is to share His joy;

His joy to Be You.

His confidence is with you, as you say:

12 Truth will correct all errors in my mind,
And I will rest in Him Who is my Self.

In Truth We All are Part of sacred One: Our belovèd God.

13 Then let Him lead you gently to the truth which will envelop you and give you peace so deep and tranquil that you will return to the familiar world reluctantly.

And peace goes with You. Every One who comes never wants to leave; yet for joy to be complete, it must include All Your Others.

The world has need of You, Your new knowing.

14 And yet you will be glad to look again upon this world. For you will bring with you the promise of the changes which the truth that goes with you will carry to the world.

To bring God’s good promises is the best Gift You could ever give, for they stand ready to be Your holy Reality.

They will increase with every gift you give of five small minutes, and the errors that surround the world will be corrected as you let them be corrected in your mind.

No matter how separated the world seems to You to be, Your corrections can be Reality.

15 Do not forget your function for today.

For You are like the Sower of good seed. Broadcast it widely!

Each time you tell yourself with confidence, “Truth will correct all errors in my mind,” you speak for all the world and Him Who would release the world as He would set you free.

Thank You for Your willingness and for Your participation.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

LESSON SIXTY ONE

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.

Workbook PART I

Lesson 61

I am the light of the world.

Illuminated by the Love of God, as I allow it; for Love is constantly illuminating as every One of His Ideas. This Light is permanent as All of Us; Our permission simply governs Our experience of It. Are We allowing Ourselves to Be It, or are We blocking the experience? Let Us be willing!

1 Who is the light of the world except God’s Son? And Who is God’s Son if it isn’t You? This, then, is merely a statement of the truth about yourself.  Eschew false humility. It only blocks Reality from experience; it cannot affect it – the Truth – at all. It is the opposite of a statement of pride, of arrogance, or of self-deception. It does not describe the self-concept you have made. It does not refer to any of the characteristics with which you have endowed your idols. It refers to you as you were created by God. It simply states the truth. Truth is invincible; It is impervious to the ego’s vicious onslaughts.

2 To the ego, today’s idea is the epitome of self-glorification. But the ego does not understand humility, mistaking it for self-debasement. Humility consists of accepting your role in salvation and in taking no other.  Humility is to give up ego for the Son of God. It is not humility to insist that you cannot be the light of the world if that is the function God assigned to you. It is resistance to the Will of God. And in His own language it is chutzbah1 and idol worship. The ‘idol’ is this strange self pretending not to be God’s Son; God’s belovèd One. It is only arrogance that would assert this function cannot be for you, and arrogance is always of the ego. Insolent is the ego with its insistence on its seeming self-creation.

This Course reminds You of Reality, dear belovèd Son.

3 True humility requires that you accept today’s idea because it is God’s Voice Which tells you it is true. God is Truth; the ego was a liar from the very start of separation. This is a beginning step in accepting your real function on earth. Acceptance of Your True Identity. It is a giant stride toward taking your rightful place in salvation. It is a positive assertion of your right to be saved and an acknowledgment of the power that is given you to save others. Oh Son of God!  How very loved You are!

How much Love You have to give Your Brothers, once You realize who and what You are; Your holy purpose.

4 You will want to think about this idea as often as possible today. You will remember that I spoke like this to My Disciples, exhorting them to let their Light shine.2 They, too, had trouble comprehending this. They preferred to think of Me as ‘special’. This is why I had to leave them after the resurrection. Perhaps I should have stayed or come back sooner. The ego mindset seems to need quite constant demonstrations. Yet Truth remains available for You. For, indeed, You are the Light of the world. It is the perfect answer to all illusions and therefore to all temptation. It brings all the images you have made about yourself to the truth and helps you depart in peace, unburdened and certain of your purpose.  It is the Holy Truth of what You are.

5 As many practice periods as possible should be undertaken today, although each one need not exceed a minute or two. They should begin with telling yourself:

6 I am the light of the world.
That is my only function.
That is why I am here.

To both understand and to give to Dreamers a sense of Love and understanding, so that They begin to remember too.

Your Light is the Reality of You.

7 Then think about these statements for a short while, preferably with your eyes closed if the situation permits. Let a few related thoughts come to you, and repeat the idea to yourself if your mind wanders away from the central thought.

I am the Light of the world.  I’m here to bless.   I’m here to give My Love to Others, so They might choose to be here for giving too.

8 Be sure both to begin and end the day with a practice period. Thus you will awaken with an acknowledgment of the truth about yourself, reinforce it throughout the day, and turn to sleep as you reaffirm your function and your only purpose here. These two practice periods may be longer than the rest if you find them helpful and want to extend them.

Remember that You find great joy in giving. Only this begins to redeem the dream from total hell.

9 Today’s idea goes far beyond the ego’s petty views of what you are and what your purpose is. As a bringer of salvation, this is obviously necessary. This is the first of a number of giant steps we will take in the next few weeks. Try today to begin to build a firm foundation for these advances. Learn to really Love the idea of being here for giving and not getting. This shift makes all the difference for You.

It is the state of mind which does underline all happiness.

 

10 You are the light of the world. God has built His plan for the salvation of His Son on you.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

1 Insolence; audacity.

  2 Matthew Chapter 5

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill  cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Fear is not justified in any form.  For Reality is quite benign, always available to Us if We will allow it to shine through.  Yet We choose to dwell in fog seeing but Jack the Ripper where is the Son of God.  And We don’t see Him for We prefer the thrill of fear to Love.

1 Fear is deception.  Repeating Myself once more: false evidence appearing real. What You see – and believe so thoroughly – is not Reality, but Your own dream!  This is why the Course says that You forgot to laugh, but chose instead to believe it.  The ‘thrill’ of fear gave You a kick, a high; You were addicted.  The high insisted that the dream was real, to ensure the kick.  Kick notwithstanding, it’s still deception.  It attests that you have seen yourself as you could never be and therefore look upon a world which is impossible.  You don’t want to hear this, yet it’s the truth: Not one thing in this world is true. It does not matter what the form in which it may appear.  The dream isn’t true!  At best it is quite impressive imagination if You You think that it’s fun to scare Yourselves to ‘death’. It witnesses but to your own illusions of yourself. Let us not be deceived today. We are the Son of God.  And very holy; this is important. You are not some schmo, nor are Your Brothers.  You are God’s dear Son!  Let that register!! There is no fear in us, for we are each a part of Love Itself.  What God is, We are, and Our God is Love.

2 How foolish are our fears!  God always loves Us! Would You allow Your Son to suffer? Give us faith today to recognize Your Son and set him free. To Know Ourselves, We must know Our Brother as the Son of God!  We must accept this true view of Him to know it for Ourselves. Let us forgive him in Your Name, that we may understand his holiness and feel the love for him that is Your own as well.

When this seems impossible for Me to do, I but reach out for Your help, then can I accomplish it in tandem with You!

What is Salvation

1Salvation is a promise made by God that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot not be kept. In other words, it is a sacred pact that God has with His Son: They must be One.  Thus separation is impossible; it is but seeming.  What God Knows and Is overrides the dream. On this salvation calmly rests: Life, Truth and Love triumphant. It guarantees that time will have an end, and all the thoughts that have been born in time will end as well.  Truth is triumphant; right now, here, present. You need but reach out and You will find it. God’s Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.  For His Word is Love, a Love that heals all thoughts of separation if You but will Yourself to feel It.

 
2 The Thought of peace was given to God’s Son the instant that his mind had thought of war.  Strange new, one-sided war with His Father. There was no need for such a Thought before, for peace was given without opposite and merely was. But when the mind is split, there is a need of healing. So the Thought which has the power to heal the split became a part of every fragment of the mind that still was one but failed to recognize its oneness.  The unreal concept of in-(not)sanity appeared, bringing fear – false evidence appearing real – along with it, and God’s Son forgot Himself. Now it did not know itself and thought its own identity was lost.  Yet was the amnesia necessary to fulfill the dream.
 
3 Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice. Thus it lets illusions go. By not supporting them, it merely lets them quietly go down to dust. And what they hid is now revealed-an altar to the holy Name of God whereon His Word is written, with the gifts of your forgiveness laid before it and the memory of God not far behind.  As You Love enough to forgive and be here for giving, this Love reminds You gently of Your Self, the One long kept hidden.
 
4 Let us come daily to this holy place and spend a while together. Here we share our final dream. It is a dream in which there is no sorrow, for it holds a hint of all the glory given us by God. The grass is pushing through the soil, the trees are budding now, and birds have come to live within their branches. “Flower and fruitage now are seen where blight and mildew rested.” Earth is being born again in new perception.  Now it does feel much closer to Heaven. Night has gone, and we have come together in the light.  We do stand together gladly to see the Son rise in His glory once again.
 
5 From here we give salvation to the world, for it is here salvation was received.  In the midst of hell, God ever-present! The song of our rejoicing is the call to all the world that freedom is returned, that time is almost over, and God’s Son has but an instant more to wait until his Father is remembered, dreams are done, eternity has shined away the world, and only Heaven now exists at all.  The opportunity exists – right here and now – just awaiting Your acceptance. Will You now give it?

Workbook PART II

Introduction

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT ~ September 16, 1970

1 Words will mean little now.  You may not yet realize this, as I am still inundating You with them!  However, what We speak of here is that You are to pay more attention – be aware of – Your feeling, and Your reaction to it in each instance. We use them – the words We speak of – but as guides on which we do not now depend. For now we seek direct experience of truth alone.  For this, Our basic need is quiet mind. The lessons which remain are merely introductions to the times in which we leave the world of pain and go to enter peace. Now we begin to reach the goal this course has set and find the end toward which our practicing was geared.

These words are not about the world, but Your healing of it; both meanings extant: the healing of Your mind attachment to it, and the healing of the belief that there could be such a thing.

2 Now we attempt to let the exercise be merely a beginning.  Come now to this place. For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father.  Longing for His Love, for which We have starved.  That is no exaggeration; hence the great epidemic of obesity. For what could You ever hunger but God. He has promised He will take the final step Himself. And we are sure His promises are kept. We have come far along the road, and now we wait for Him. Although He’s ever-present, We are not! Acknowledge and realize His Presence. We will continue spending time with Him each morning and at night, as long as makes us happy. We will not consider time a matter of duration now.  The necessity is contact, not form. We use as much as we will need for the result that we desire.  Desire is what You need desire.  Just lean into it for Your fulfillment. Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance in between, calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal.  Now You know He is but Your constant companion.  Acknowledge Him every instant, and watch joy increase!

3 We will continue with a central thought for all the days to come. And we will use that thought to introduce our times of rest and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not content ourselves with simple practicing in the remaining holy instants which conclude the year that we have given God. This is Your Gift to Him of Your Self; be not a faithless giver. We say some simple words of welcome and expect our Father to reveal Himself as He has promised. We have called on Him, and He has promised that His Son will not remain unanswered when he calls His Name.  He is ever-present, answering You, before You do ask!

4 Now do we come to Him with but His Word upon our minds and hearts.  Forget the world, and focus just on God. And wait for Him to take the step to us that He has told us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take when we invited Him.  Trust Him!  He is here! He has not left His Son in all his madness nor betrayed His trust in him. Has not His faithfulness earned Him the invitation that He seeks to make us happy?  Reach out with longing.  He is responding! We will offer it, and it will be accepted. So our times with Him will now be spent. We say the words of invitation that His Voice suggests, and then we wait for Him to come to us.  We are receptive, longing for His Love.

5 Now is the time of prophecy fulfilled. Now are all ancient promises upheld and fully kept. Made by God at the very instant of the separation. No step remains for time to separate from its accomplishment. For now we cannot fail. Sit silently and wait upon your Father. He has willed to come to you when you have recognized it is your will He do so. And you could have never come this far unless you saw, however dimly, that it is your will.

It’s simple: continue to be willing.

6 I am so close to you we cannot fail.  Feel Your Elder Brother’s arm around Your shoulders.  I am here!  You are not alone. Father, we give these holy times to You in gratitude to Him Who taught us how to leave the world of sorrow in exchange for its replacement given us by You.  And We are grateful! We look not backward now. We look ahead and fix our eyes upon the journey’s end. Accept these little gifts of thanks from us, as through Christ’s vision we behold a world beyond the one we made and take that world to be the full replacement of our own.  Help Us here with Our courage.  We need it!  The world’s pull is stronger; yet You’re much stronger!

7 And now we wait in silence, unafraid and certain of Your coming. We have sought to find our way by following the Guide You sent to us. We did not know the way, but You did not forget us. And we know that You will not forget us now. We realize that We have never, ever, been forsaken! We ask but that Your ancient promises be kept which are Your Will to keep. We will with You in asking this.  For We are shaky, and We need Your help. The Father and the Son, Whose holy Will created all that is, can fail in nothing. In this certainty, we undertake these last few steps to You and rest in confidence upon Your Love, Which will not fail the Son who calls to You.

A true experience of Your Love would but waken Me in a holy instant!  Yes, indeed, it would!

8 And so we start upon the final part of this one holy year which we have spent together in the search for truth and God, Who is its one Creator. We have found the way He chose for us and made the choice to follow it as He would have us go. His hand has held us up. His Thoughts have lit the darkness of our minds. His Love has called to us unceasingly since time began.

9 We had a wish that God would fail to have the Son whom He created for Himself. We wanted God to change Himself and be what we would make of Him. And we believed that our insane desires were the truth.  And were accomplished!  Now we are glad that this is all undone, and we no longer think illusions true.  We long, instead, for God’s Reality.  The memory of God is shimmering across the wide horizons of our minds.  Minds which seemed before so narrow have been opened wide by Love. A moment more, and it will rise again.  We feel His Presence, Love’s glad welcoming. A moment more, and we who are God’s Sons are safely home, where He would have us be. Finally, We are easing free from the domination of the wily ego, giving great new meaning to: Free at last.  With God alone is true Equality.

10 Now is the need for practice almost done. For in this final section we will come to understand that we need only call to God and all temptations disappear. Instead of words, we need but feel His Love.  It’s sure and simple. Instead of prayer, we need but call His Name. Instead of judging, we need but be still and let all things be healed.  God is the power behind all healing. We will accept the way God’s plan will end, as we received the way it started. Now it is complete. This year has brought us to eternity.  And opened wide Our minds that We might step out of the confined ego into eternal Love of God.

11 One further use for words we still retain. From time to time, instructions on a theme of special relevance will intersperse our daily lessons and the periods of wordless, deep experience which should come afterwards.  All things are geared for Your Awakening!These special thoughts should be reviewed each day, each one of them to be continued till the next is given you. They should be slowly read and thought about a little while, preceding one of the holy and blessed instants in the day. We give the first of these instructions now.

And We listen with joyous expectation for Your dear words!

[Thank you Dear Brother]

Workbook PART II

L e s s o n  239

The glory of my Father is my own.  Well this is kind of hard to swallow, I mean with all My faults, it’s impossible!

Sisters, Brothers, You only think this way because You believe that You are egos.  It’s just a belief, not Reality!  You have My promise: You are the Son of God, right here and right now, and forever.  What You really are is guaranteed by God.  That is an eternal Warranty.

1 Let not the truth about ourselves today be hidden by a false humility.  Belovèd Son, belovèd One, would You be ashamed of Your relationship with God?   If not, then sing it from the treetops! Don’t act like You are humble speciously!  Real humility pours forth gratefully, bathing All with Love.  Let’s not stray from it. Let us instead be thankful for the gifts our Father gave us. Can we see in those with whom He shares His glory any trace of sin and guilt? Only when We choose to dwell in nightmares, vain and pointless dreams. And can it be that we are not among them when He loves His Son forever and with perfect constancy, knowing he is as He created him?  Only holy Ones fill the Universe with their perfect Peace.  You are among them.

2 We thank You, Father, for the light that shines forever in us. For this Light is Us as Your extension.! And we honor it because You share it with us.  You are Our True  and Real, Our actual substance. We are one, united in this light, and one with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves.  The Light is shared as Each of Us and Each of all Creation

This is but cause to sing hallelujah!

Workbook PART II

L e s s o n  238

On my decision all salvation rests.  Who else but no-one rules My world for Me?  As Harry Truman’s sign said so succinctly: The buck stops here.

I guess I must be up to this task since I have to do it!

1 Father, Your trust in me has been so great I must be worthy. Theoretically; not sure I feel it! You created me and know me as I am.  You are aware of My Reality, and what You see of Me is far better than what I can see. And yet You placed Your Son’s salvation in my hands and let it rest on my decision.  Where is this elusive Son but buried far within My mind. His Reality is deeply hidden. I must be beloved of You indeed. You have not forsaken Me despite the distance and the depth that I have wandered. And I must be steadfast in holiness as well, that You would give Your Son to me in certainty that He is safe – (For You trust in Me.) – Who still is part of You and yet is mine because He is my Self.

I pour out from You – as do My Brothers – like Rays pour from the Sun; individual, yet We are One.

2 And so again today we pause to think how much our Father loves us. God has no need for forgiveness, for He sees but only Good as He looks with such Love upon His Son, Knowing They are One. And how dear His Son, created by His Love, remains to Him Whose Love is made complete in him.  God’s Love does find expression throughout All His Revelation.

1Salvation is a promise made by God that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot not be kept.

Night has gone, and we have come together in the light.  We do stand together gladly to see the Son rise in His glory once again.

Now we begin to reach the goal this course has set and find the end toward which our practicing was geared.

These words are not about the world, but Your healing of it; both meanings extant: the healing of Your mind attachment to it, and the healing of the belief that there could be such a thing.

2 Now we attempt to let the exercise be merely a beginning.  Come now to this place. For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father.  Longing for His Love, for which We have starved.  That is no exaggeration; hence the great epidemic of obesity. For what could You ever hunger but God. He has promised He will take the final step Himself. And we are sure His promises are kept. We have come far along the road, and now we wait for Him. Although He’s ever-present, We are not! Acknowledge and realize His Presence. We will continue spending time with Him each morning and at night, as long as makes us happy. We will not consider time a matter of duration now.  The necessity is contact, not form. We use as much as we will need for the result that we desire.  Desire is what You need desire.  Just lean into it for Your fulfillment. Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance in between, calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal.  Now You know He is but Your constant companion.  Acknowledge Him every instant, and watch joy increase!

3 We will continue with a central thought for all the days to come. And we will use that thought to introduce our times of rest and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not content ourselves with simple practicing in the remaining holy instants which conclude the year that we have given God. This is Your Gift to Him of Your Self; be not a faithless giver. We say some simple words of welcome and expect our Father to reveal Himself as He has promised. We have called on Him, and He has promised that His Son will not remain unanswered when he calls His Name.  He is ever-present, answering You, before You do ask!

4 Now do we come to Him with but His Word upon our minds and hearts.  Forget the world, and focus just on God. And wait for Him to take the step to us that He has told us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take when we invited Him.  Trust Him!  He is here! He has not left His Son in all his madness nor betrayed His trust in him. Has not His faithfulness earned Him the invitation that He seeks to make us happy?  Reach out with longing.  He is responding! We will offer it, and it will be accepted. So our times with Him will now be spent. We say the words of invitation that His Voice suggests, and then we wait for Him to come to us.  We are receptive, longing for His Love.

5 Now is the time of prophecy fulfilled. Now are all ancient promises upheld and fully kept. Made by God at the very instant of the separation. No step remains for time to separate from its accomplishment. For now we cannot fail. Sit silently and wait upon your Father. He has willed to come to you when you have recognized it is your will He do so. And you could have never come this far unless you saw, however dimly, that it is your will.

It’s simple: continue to be willing.

6 I am so close to you we cannot fail.  Feel Your Elder Brother’s arm around Your shoulders.  I am here!  You are not alone. Father, we give these holy times to You in gratitude to Him Who taught us how to leave the world of sorrow in exchange for its replacement given us by You.  And We are grateful! We look not backward now. We look ahead and fix our eyes upon the journey’s end. Accept these little gifts of thanks from us, as through Christ’s vision we behold a world beyond the one we made and take that world to be the full replacement of our own.  Help Us here with Our courage.  We need it!  The world’s pull is stronger; yet You’re much stronger!

7 And now we wait in silence, unafraid and certain of Your coming. We have sought to find our way by following the Guide You sent to us. We did not know the way, but You did not forget us. And we know that You will not forget us now. We realize that We have never, ever, been forsaken! We ask but that Your ancient promises be kept which are Your Will to keep. We will with You in asking this.  For We are shaky, and We need Your help. The Father and the Son, Whose holy Will created all that is, can fail in nothing. In this certainty, we undertake these last few steps to You and rest in confidence upon Your Love, Which will not fail the Son who calls to You.

A true experience of Your Love would but waken Me in a holy instant!  Yes, indeed, it would!

8 And so we start upon the final part of this one holy year which we have spent together in the search for truth and God, Who is its one Creator. We have found the way He chose for us and made the choice to follow it as He would have us go. His hand has held us up. His Thoughts have lit the darkness of our minds. His Love has called to us unceasingly since time began.

9 We had a wish that God would fail to have the Son whom He created for Himself. We wanted God to change Himself and be what we would make of Him. And we believed that our insane desires were the truth.  And were accomplished!  Now we are glad that this is all undone, and we no longer think illusions true.  We long, instead, for God’s Reality.  The memory of God is shimmering across the wide horizons of our minds.  Minds which seemed before so narrow have been opened wide by Love. A moment more, and it will rise again.  We feel His Presence, Love’s glad welcoming. A moment more, and we who are God’s Sons are safely home, where He would have us be. Finally, We are easing free from the domination of the wily ego, giving great new meaning to: Free at last.  With God alone is true Equality.

10 Now is the need for practice almost done. For in this final section we will come to understand that we need only call to God and all temptations disappear. Instead of words, we need but feel His Love.  It’s sure and simple. Instead of prayer, we need but call His Name. Instead of judging, we need but be still and let all things be healed.  God is the power behind all healing. We will accept the way God’s plan will end, as we received the way it started. Now it is complete. This year has brought us to eternity.  And opened wide Our minds that We might step out of the confined ego into eternal Love of God.

11 One further use for words we still retain. From time to time, instructions on a theme of special relevance will intersperse our daily lessons and the periods of wordless, deep experience which should come afterwards.  All things are geared for Your Awakening!These special thoughts should be reviewed each day, each one of them to be continued till the next is given you. They should be slowly read and thought about a little while, preceding one of the holy and blessed instants in the day. We give the first of these instructions now.

And We listen with joyous expectation for Your dear words!

Now would I be as God created me.

And stop pretending to be an ego.  And how is God creating Me but to be the Son of God.  Yes, just like Jesus.  For when We act like an ego and still call God ‘Creator’ this just cannot be.  For God makes only good, so this must be so of You and Me.

1 Today I will accept the truth about myself, and stop pretending to be what I’m notNever have been, never will be ego. I will arise in glory and allow the light in me to shine upon the world throughout the day. For the Light is what’s True of Me always! I bring the world the tidings of salvation that I hear as God my Father speaks to me. The other voice – ego – is not needful  And I behold the world that Christ would have me see, aware it ends the bitter dream of death, aware it is my Father’s call to me.  Refusing to believe a lie, I must believe Truth instead.

2 Christ is my eyes today, and His the ears which listen to the Voice of God today. What have We here but Christ personified as Jesus, and, Christ the present Possibility of every One of You. Father, I come to You through Him Who is Your Son and my true Self as well. Amen.

What is Salvation

1Salvation is a promise made by God that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot not be kept. In other words, it is a sacred pact that God has with His Son: They must be One.  Thus separation is impossible; it is but seeming.  What God Knows and Is overrides the dream. On this salvation calmly rests: Life, Truth and Love triumphant. It guarantees that time will have an end, and all the thoughts that have been born in time will end as well.  Truth is triumphant; right now, here, present. You need but reach out and You will find it. God’s Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.  For His Word is Love, a Love that heals all thoughts of separation if You but will Yourself to feel It.

 
2 The Thought of peace was given to God’s Son the instant that his mind had thought of war.  Strange new, one-sided war with His Father. There was no need for such a Thought before, for peace was given without opposite and merely was. But when the mind is split, there is a need of healing. So the Thought which has the power to heal the split became a part of every fragment of the mind that still was one but failed to recognize its oneness.  The unreal concept of in-(not)sanity appeared, bringing fear – false evidence appearing real – along with it, and God’s Son forgot Himself. Now it did not know itself and thought its own identity was lost.  Yet was the amnesia necessary to fulfill the dream.
 
3 Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice. Thus it lets illusions go. By not supporting them, it merely lets them quietly go down to dust. And what they hid is now revealed-an altar to the holy Name of God whereon His Word is written, with the gifts of your forgiveness laid before it and the memory of God not far behind.  As You Love enough to forgive and be here for giving, this Love reminds You gently of Your Self, the One long kept hidden.
 
4 Let us come daily to this holy place and spend a while together. Here we share our final dream. It is a dream in which there is no sorrow, for it holds a hint of all the glory given us by God. The grass is pushing through the soil, the trees are budding now, and birds have come to live within their branches. “Flower and fruitage now are seen where blight and mildew rested.” Earth is being born again in new perception.  Now it does feel much closer to Heaven. Night has gone, and we have come together in the light.  We do stand together gladly to see the Son rise in His glory once again.
 
5 From here we give salvation to the world, for it is here salvation was received.  In the midst of hell, God ever-present! The song of our rejoicing is the call to all the world that freedom is returned, that time is almost over, and God’s Son has but an instant more to wait until his Father is remembered, dreams are done, eternity has shined away the world, and only Heaven now exists at all.  The opportunity exists – right here and now – just awaiting Your acceptance. Will You now give it?

Introduction

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT ~ September 16, 1970

1 Words will mean little now.  You may not yet realize this, as I am still inundating You with them!  However, what We speak of here is that You are to pay more attention – be aware of – Your feeling, and Your reaction to it in each instance. We use them – the words We speak of – but as guides on which we do not now depend. For now we seek direct experience of truth alone.  For this, Our basic need is quiet mind. The lessons which remain are merely introductions to the times in which we leave the world of pain and go to enter peace. Now we begin to reach the goal this course has set and find the end toward which our practicing was geared.

These words are not about the world, but Your healing of it; both meanings extant: the healing of Your mind attachment to it, and the healing of the belief that there could be such a thing.

2 Now we attempt to let the exercise be merely a beginning.  Come now to this place. For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father.  Longing for His Love, for which We have starved.  That is no exaggeration; hence the great epidemic of obesity. For what could You ever hunger but God. He has promised He will take the final step Himself. And we are sure His promises are kept. We have come far along the road, and now we wait for Him. Although He’s ever-present, We are not! Acknowledge and realize His Presence. We will continue spending time with Him each morning and at night, as long as makes us happy. We will not consider time a matter of duration now.  The necessity is contact, not form. We use as much as we will need for the result that we desire.  Desire is what You need desire.  Just lean into it for Your fulfillment. Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance in between, calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal.  Now You know He is but Your constant companion.  Acknowledge Him every instant, and watch joy increase!

L e s s o n  236

I rule my mind, which I alone must rule.

Your mind may seem to be unruly, thinking as it pleases, yet it thinks not without Your direction.  How well do You rule?

1 I have a kingdom I must rule.  It is the kingdom of My experience of consciousness. At times, it does not seem I am its king at all. But rather I am serf to its commands. It seems to triumph over me and tell me what to think and what to do and feel. And yet it has been given me to serve whatever purpose I perceive in it. My mind can only serve.  Shall it serve My God or serve the ego? Today I give its service to the Holy Spirit to employ as He sees fit.  For Holy Spirit is but the liaison between Our God and the ego. Even though it seems to be vice versa. I thus direct my mind, which I alone can rule. And in this direction, I, with gladness, yield it up to God. And thus I set it free to do the Will of God.  And I – and It – are gladly liberated from the ego.

2 Father, my mind is open to Your Thoughts – that they now may very freely enter – and closed today to every thought but Yours. –thus effectively ignoring ego – I rule my mind and offer it to You, in a pristine state, fitting gift for God. Accept my gift, for it is Yours to me.  You have given Me Your glorious mind.

Workbook PART II

L e s s o n  235

God in His mercy wills that I be saved.  What is God’s mercy but His lovingkindness for each One of His Divine Ideas.  Every One is precious, loved and cherished.  This is true for Me, and it is just as true for You, for His “belovèd Son”1 does include Every One.  For He is equally as “well-pleased” with You, as He is with Me.  And You are just as much His Beloved

1 I need but look upon all things that seem to hurt me and with perfect certainty assure myself, “God wills that I be saved from this,” and merely watch them disappear. Indeed, Sister, this is not just very comforting, but it is the very Truth.  If it were not so, I would not say it.

I need but keep in mind my Father’s Will for me is only happiness to find that only happiness has come to me. And I need but remember that His Love surrounds His Son and keeps his sinlessness forever perfect to be sure that I am saved and safe forever in His arms. I am the Son He loves. And I am saved because God in His mercy wills it so.  Just because You fell asleep and dreamed a complex fantasy, with a cast of billions, that You think to be reality does not make it so.  And just because the billions believe it too, still doesn’t make it any realer.  For God’s dear Love outshines all foolish dreams.

2 Father, Your holiness is mine. – You are My only Source; therefore, what You are must I be too. – Your Love created me and made my sinlessness forever part of You. – What We call Your Creation is far more of an ongoing, eternal Revelation.  There is no beginning to Eternity, as well there is no ending. – I have no guilt nor sin in me, for there is none in You.  Just as You are belovèd Father, only Good, that Truth must too be True of Me.

What is Salvation

1Salvation is a promise made by God that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot not be kept. In other words, it is a sacred pact that God has with His Son: They must be One.  Thus separation is impossible; it is but seeming.  What God Knows and Is overrides the dream. On this salvation calmly rests: Life, Truth and Love triumphant. It guarantees that time will have an end, and all the thoughts that have been born in time will end as well.  Truth is triumphant; right now, here, present. You need but reach out and You will find it. God’s Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.  For His Word is Love, a Love that heals all thoughts of separation if You but will Yourself to feel It.

 
2 The Thought of peace was given to God’s Son the instant that his mind had thought of war.  Strange new, one-sided war with His Father. There was no need for such a Thought before, for peace was given without opposite and merely was. But when the mind is split, there is a need of healing. So the Thought which has the power to heal the split became a part of every fragment of the mind that still was one but failed to recognize its oneness.  The unreal concept of in-(not)sanity appeared, bringing fear – false evidence appearing real – along with it, and God’s Son forgot Himself. Now it did not know itself and thought its own identity was lost.  Yet was the amnesia necessary to fulfill the dream.
 
3 Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice. Thus it lets illusions go. By not supporting them, it merely lets them quietly go down to dust. And what they hid is now revealed-an altar to the holy Name of God whereon His Word is written, with the gifts of your forgiveness laid before it and the memory of God not far behind.  As You Love enough to forgive and be here for giving, this Love reminds You gently of Your Self, the One long kept hidden.
 
4 Let us come daily to this holy place and spend a while together. Here we share our final dream. It is a dream in which there is no sorrow, for it holds a hint of all the glory given us by God. The grass is pushing through the soil, the trees are budding now, and birds have come to live within their branches. “Flower and fruitage now are seen where blight and mildew rested.” Earth is being born again in new perception.  Now it does feel much closer to Heaven. Night has gone, and we have come together in the light.  We do stand together gladly to see the Son rise in His glory once again.
 
5 From here we give salvation to the world, for it is here salvation was received.  In the midst of hell, God ever-present! The song of our rejoicing is the call to all the world that freedom is returned, that time is almost over, and God’s Son has but an instant more to wait until his Father is remembered, dreams are done, eternity has shined away the world, and only Heaven now exists at all.  The opportunity exists – right here and now – just awaiting Your acceptance. Will You now give it?

Workbook PART II

Introduction

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT ~ September 16, 1970

1 Words will mean little now.  You may not yet realize this, as I am still inundating You with them!  However, what We speak of here is that You are to pay more attention – be aware of – Your feeling, and Your reaction to it in each instance. We use them – the words We speak of – but as guides on which we do not now depend. For now we seek direct experience of truth alone.  For this, Our basic need is quiet mind. The lessons which remain are merely introductions to the times in which we leave the world of pain and go to enter peace. Now we begin to reach the goal this course has set and find the end toward which our practicing was geared.

These words are not about the world, but Your healing of it; both meanings extant: the healing of Your mind attachment to it, and the healing of the belief that there could be such a thing.

2 Now we attempt to let the exercise be merely a beginning.  Come now to this place. For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father.  Longing for His Love, for which We have starved.  That is no exaggeration; hence the great epidemic of obesity. For what could You ever hunger but God. He has promised He will take the final step Himself. And we are sure His promises are kept. We have come far along the road, and now we wait for Him. Although He’s ever-present, We are not! Acknowledge and realize His Presence. We will continue spending time with Him each morning and at night, as long as makes us happy. We will not consider time a matter of duration now.  The necessity is contact, not form. We use as much as we will need for the result that we desire.  Desire is what You need desire.  Just lean into it for Your fulfillment. Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance in between, calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal.  Now You know He is but Your constant companion.  Acknowledge Him every instant, and watch joy increase!

3 We will continue with a central thought for all the days to come. And we will use that thought to introduce our times of rest and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not content ourselves with simple practicing in the remaining holy instants which conclude the year that we have given God. This is Your Gift to Him of Your Self; be not a faithless giver. We say some simple words of welcome and expect our Father to reveal Himself as He has promised. We have called on Him, and He has promised that His Son will not remain unanswered when he calls His Name.  He is ever-present, answering You, before You do ask!

4 Now do we come to Him with but His Word upon our minds and hearts.  Forget the world, and focus just on God. And wait for Him to take the step to us that He has told us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take when we invited Him.  Trust Him!  He is here! He has not left His Son in all his madness nor betrayed His trust in him. Has not His faithfulness earned Him the invitation that He seeks to make us happy?  Reach out with longing.  He is responding! We will offer it, and it will be accepted. So our times with Him will now be spent. We say the words of invitation that His Voice suggests, and then we wait for Him to come to us.  We are receptive, longing for His Love.

5 Now is the time of prophecy fulfilled. Now are all ancient promises upheld and fully kept. Made by God at the very instant of the separation. No step remains for time to separate from its accomplishment. For now we cannot fail. Sit silently and wait upon your Father. He has willed to come to you when you have recognized it is your will He do so. And you could have never come this far unless you saw, however dimly, that it is your will.

It’s simple: continue to be willing.

6 I am so close to you we cannot fail.  Feel Your Elder Brother’s arm around Your shoulders.  I am here!  You are not alone. Father, we give these holy times to You in gratitude to Him Who taught us how to leave the world of sorrow in exchange for its replacement given us by You.  And We are grateful! We look not backward now. We look ahead and fix our eyes upon the journey’s end. Accept these little gifts of thanks from us, as through Christ’s vision we behold a world beyond the one we made and take that world to be the full replacement of our own.  Help Us here with Our courage.  We need it!  The world’s pull is stronger; yet You’re much stronger!

7 And now we wait in silence, unafraid and certain of Your coming. We have sought to find our way by following the Guide You sent to us. We did not know the way, but You did not forget us. And we know that You will not forget us now. We realize that We have never, ever, been forsaken! We ask but that Your ancient promises be kept which are Your Will to keep. We will with You in asking this.  For We are shaky, and We need Your help. The Father and the Son, Whose holy Will created all that is, can fail in nothing. In this certainty, we undertake these last few steps to You and rest in confidence upon Your Love, Which will not fail the Son who calls to You.

A true experience of Your Love would but waken Me in a holy instant!  Yes, indeed, it would!

8 And so we start upon the final part of this one holy year which we have spent together in the search for truth and God, Who is its one Creator. We have found the way He chose for us and made the choice to follow it as He would have us go. His hand has held us up. His Thoughts have lit the darkness of our minds. His Love has called to us unceasingly since time began.

9 We had a wish that God would fail to have the Son whom He created for Himself. We wanted God to change Himself and be what we would make of Him. And we believed that our insane desires were the truth.  And were accomplished!  Now we are glad that this is all undone, and we no longer think illusions true.  We long, instead, for God’s Reality.  The memory of God is shimmering across the wide horizons of our minds.  Minds which seemed before so narrow have been opened wide by Love. A moment more, and it will rise again.  We feel His Presence, Love’s glad welcoming. A moment more, and we who are God’s Sons are safely home, where He would have us be. Finally, We are easing free from the domination of the wily ego, giving great new meaning to: Free at last.  With God alone is true Equality.

10 Now is the need for practice almost done. For in this final section we will come to understand that we need only call to God and all temptations disappear. Instead of words, we need but feel His Love.  It’s sure and simple. Instead of prayer, we need but call His Name. Instead of judging, we need but be still and let all things be healed.  God is the power behind all healing. We will accept the way God’s plan will end, as we received the way it started. Now it is complete. This year has brought us to eternity.  And opened wide Our minds that We might step out of the confined ego into eternal Love of God.

11 One further use for words we still retain. From time to time, instructions on a theme of special relevance will intersperse our daily lessons and the periods of wordless, deep experience which should come afterwards.  All things are geared for Your Awakening!These special thoughts should be reviewed each day, each one of them to be continued till the next is given you. They should be slowly read and thought about a little while, preceding one of the holy and blessed instants in the day. We give the first of these instructions now.

And We listen with joyous expectation for Your dear words!

[Thank you Dear Brother]

L e s s o n  234

Father, today I am Your Son again.

No more an independent agent, going on My own and doing as I please; come hell or high water, and You know both of them surely come.  They were the cost of My wilfulness, and now I gladly change My ways, for I so truly long to feel like Your Son again.

1 Today we will anticipate the time when dreams of sin and guilt are gone and we have reached again the holy place we never left. This whole noxious ‘history’ – compassing eons – has been but a nightmare, only a rapid eye blink in Reality. Merely a tiny instant has elapsed between eternity and timelessness. So brief the interval, there was no lapse in continuity nor break in thoughts which are forever unified as one. Nothing has ever happened to disturb the peace of God the Father and the Son. This we accept as wholly true today.

The seeming is quite different, and yet it isn’t real; not one moment or iota of the dream had validity.

2 We thank You, Father, that we cannot lose the memory of You and of Your Love. Dreams are never real, no matter how prolonged or convincing! We recognize our safety – Your omnipotence – and give thanks for all the gifts You have bestowed on us, – Your omnipresence – for all the loving help we have received, for Your eternal patience, and the Word which You have given us that we are saved.  Your omnipotence does guarantee Our eternal Safety.

What is Salvation

1Salvation is a promise made by God that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot not be kept. In other words, it is a sacred pact that God has with His Son: They must be One.  Thus separation is impossible; it is but seeming.  What God Knows and Is overrides the dream. On this salvation calmly rests: Life, Truth and Love triumphant. It guarantees that time will have an end, and all the thoughts that have been born in time will end as well.  Truth is triumphant; right now, here, present. You need but reach out and You will find it. God’s Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.  For His Word is Love, a Love that heals all thoughts of separation if You but will Yourself to feel It.

 
2 The Thought of peace was given to God’s Son the instant that his mind had thought of war.  Strange new, one-sided war with His Father. There was no need for such a Thought before, for peace was given without opposite and merely was. But when the mind is split, there is a need of healing.

Now it did not know itself and thought its own identity was lost.  Yet was the amnesia necessary to fulfill the dream.
 
3 Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice. Thus it lets illusions go.

And what they hid is now revealed-an altar to the holy Name of God whereon His Word is written, with the gifts of your forgiveness laid before it and the memory of God not far behind.  As You Love enough to forgive and be here for giving, this Love reminds You gently of Your Self, the One long kept hidden.

Night has gone, and we have come together in the light.  We do stand together gladly to see the Son rise in His glory once again.
 
5 From here we give salvation to the world, for it is here salvation was received.  In the midst of hell, God ever-present! The song of our rejoicing is the call to all the world that freedom is returned, that time is almost over, and God’s Son has but an instant more to wait until his Father is remembered, dreams are done, eternity has shined away the world, and only Heaven now exists at all.  The opportunity exists – right here and now – just awaiting Your acceptance.

L e s s o n  233

I give my life to God to run today.

Just today?  Why not forever?  Do I really think that I can run it better?  Since I’m not awake after all these years, obviously not!  Eons of all these repeating lifetimes, and I still “ain’t got no satisfaction.”  Temporary, but not the Peace of God.  So, starting today, I’m abdicating.

1 Father, I give You all my thoughts today.  What use are they, all self-centered in some way. I’d really rather hear what You say.  I would have none of mine. In place of them, give me Your own.  Unlike My own thoughts, all based in control,  Yours must be lovely, blessing Every One . I give You all my acts as well that I may do Your Will instead of seeking goals which cannot be obtained and wasting time in vain imaginings. For We cannot see the larger picture, so even seeming ‘selfless’ goals must be very limited. Today I come to You. I will step back and merely follow You. Glad for Your leading, I don’t mind at all! Be You the Guide and I the follower who questions not the wisdom of the Infinite nor Love Whose tenderness I cannot comprehend but which is yet Your perfect gift to me.  I would gladly learn from You how to really Love All Others.

2 Today we have one Guide to lead us on. And as we walk together, we will give this day to Him with no reserve at all. This is His day. And so it is a day of countless gifts and mercies unto us.

Which I so look forward to with greatest anticipation!  Father, hold My hand.

For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father.  Longing for His Love, for which We have starved.  That is no exaggeration; hence the great epidemic of obesity. For what could You ever hunger but God. He has promised He will take the final step Himself. And we are sure His promises are kept. We have come far along the road, and now we wait for Him. Although He’s ever-present, We are not! Acknowledge and realize His Presence. We will continue spending time with Him each morning and at night, as long as makes us happy. We will not consider time a matter of duration now.  The necessity is contact, not form. We use as much as we will need for the result that we desire.  Desire is what You need desire.  Just lean into it for Your fulfillment. Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance in between, calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal.  Now You know He is but Your constant companion.  Acknowledge Him every instant, and watch joy increase!

3 We will continue with a central thought for all the days to come. And we will use that thought to introduce our times of rest and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not content ourselves with simple practicing in the remaining holy instants which conclude the year that we have given God. This is Your Gift to Him of Your Self; be not a faithless giver. We say some simple words of welcome and expect our Father to reveal Himself as He has promised. We have called on Him, and He has promised that His Son will not remain unanswered when he calls His Name.  He is ever-present, answering You, before You do ask!

4 Now do we come to Him with but His Word upon our minds and hearts.  Forget the world, and focus just on God. And wait for Him to take the step to us that He has told us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take when we invited Him.  Trust Him!  He is here! He has not left His Son in all his madness nor betrayed His trust in him. Has not His faithfulness earned Him the invitation that He seeks to make us happy?  Reach out with longing.  He is responding! We will offer it, and it will be accepted. So our times with Him will now be spent. We say the words of invitation that His Voice suggests, and then we wait for Him to come to us.  We are receptive, longing for His Love.

5 Now is the time of prophecy fulfilled. Now are all ancient promises upheld and fully kept. Made by God at the very instant of the separation. No step remains for time to separate from its accomplishment. For now we cannot fail. Sit silently and wait upon your Father. He has willed to come to you when you have recognized it is your will He do so. And you could have never come this far unless you saw, however dimly, that it is your will.

It’s simple: continue to be willing.

6 I am so close to you we cannot fail.  Feel Your Elder Brother’s arm around Your shoulders.  I am here!  You are not alone. Father, we give these holy times to You in gratitude to Him Who taught us how to leave the world of sorrow in exchange for its replacement given us by You.  And We are grateful! We look not backward now. We look ahead and fix our eyes upon the journey’s end. Accept these little gifts of thanks from us, as through Christ’s vision we behold a world beyond the one we made and take that world to be the full replacement of our own.  Help Us here with Our courage.  We need it!  The world’s pull is stronger; yet You’re much stronger!

7 And now we wait in silence, unafraid and certain of Your coming. We have sought to find our way by following the Guide You sent to us. We did not know the way, but You did not forget us. And we know that You will not forget us now. We realize that We have never, ever, been forsaken! We ask but that Your ancient promises be kept which are Your Will to keep. We will with You in asking this.  For We are shaky, and We need Your help. The Father and the Son, Whose holy Will created all that is, can fail in nothing. In this certainty, we undertake these last few steps to You and rest in confidence upon Your Love, Which will not fail the Son who calls to You.

A true experience of Your Love would but waken Me in a holy instant!  Yes, indeed, it would!

8 And so we start upon the final part of this one holy year which we have spent together in the search for truth and God, Who is its one Creator. We have found the way He chose for us and made the choice to follow it as He would have us go. His hand has held us up. His Thoughts have lit the darkness of our minds. His Love has called to us unceasingly since time began.

9 We had a wish that God would fail to have the Son whom He created for Himself. We wanted God to change Himself and be what we would make of Him. And we believed that our insane desires were the truth.  And were accomplished!  Now we are glad that this is all undone, and we no longer think illusions true.  We long, instead, for God’s Reality.  The memory of God is shimmering across the wide horizons of our minds.  Minds which seemed before so narrow have been opened wide by Love. A moment more, and it will rise again.  We feel His Presence, Love’s glad welcoming. A moment more, and we who are God’s Sons are safely home, where He would have us be. Finally, We are easing free from the domination of the wily ego, giving great new meaning to: Free at last.  With God alone is true Equality.

10 Now is the need for practice almost done. For in this final section we will come to understand that we need only call to God and all temptations disappear. Instead of words, we need but feel His Love.  It’s sure and simple. Instead of prayer, we need but call His Name. Instead of judging, we need but be still and let all things be healed.  God is the power behind all healing. We will accept the way God’s plan will end, as we received the way it started. Now it is complete. This year has brought us to eternity.  And opened wide Our minds that We might step out of the confined ego into eternal Love of God.

11 One further use for words we still retain. From time to time, instructions on a theme of special relevance will intersperse our daily lessons and the periods of wordless, deep experience which should come afterwards.  All things are geared for Your Awakening!These special thoughts should be reviewed each day, each one of them to be continued till the next is given you. They should be slowly read and thought about a little while, preceding one of the holy and blessed instants in the day. We give the first of these instructions now.

And We listen with joyous expectation for Your dear words!

L e s s o n  232

Be in my mind, my Father, through the day.

Be in My mind?  Who am I kidding but Myself!  You are My mind when I’m not listening to the ego.
1 Be in my mind, my Father, when I wake and shine on me throughout the day today. how could I have anything but the most joyous day with You! Let every minute be a time in which I dwell with You.  This is My prayer: to realize it, as it is anyway. Where You are, I am, and vice versa!  The necessity? Remember always that You are with Me. And let me not forget my hourly thanksgiving that You have remained with me and always will be there to hear my call to You and answer me. This is My greatest source of gratitude: Your ever-Presence. As evening comes, let all my thoughts be still of You and of Your Love, and let me sleep sure of my safety, certain of Your care, and happily aware I am Your Son.
Thus even sleeping does become a prayer to You, My Father.
2 This is as every day should be. I at One with Thee. Today practice the end of fear. You know: false evidenceappearing real. It really isn’t; only Good is real. Have faith in Him Who is your Father.  Trust all things to Him. Brother, You know I do, along with You. You’ve shown Me the way; I trust and follow. Let Him reveal all things to you, and be you undismayed because you are His Son.
You are forever loved by God; You are safe within His Mind, with All Your Brothers.  No-one can ever be left out, for God is All-inclusive.  You are so cherished!

What is Salvation

1Salvation is a promise made by God that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot not be kept. In other words, it is a sacred pact that God has with His Son: They must be One.  Thus separation is impossible; it is but seeming.  What God Knows and Is overrides the dream. On this salvation calmly rests: Life, Truth and Love triumphant. It guarantees that time will have an end, and all the thoughts that have been born in time will end as well.  Truth is triumphant; right now, here, present. You need but reach out and You will find it. God’s Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.  For His Word is Love, a Love that heals all thoughts of separation if You but will Yourself to feel It.

 
2 The Thought of peace was given to God’s Son the instant that his mind had thought of war.  Strange new, one-sided war with His Father. There was no need for such a Thought before, for peace was given without opposite and merely was. But when the mind is split, there is a need of healing. So the Thought which has the power to heal the split became a part of every fragment of the mind that still was one but failed to recognize its oneness.  The unreal concept of in-(not)sanity appeared, bringing fear – false evidence appearing real – along with it, and God’s Son forgot Himself. Now it did not know itself and thought its own identity was lost.  Yet was the amnesia necessary to fulfill the dream.
 
3 Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice. Thus it lets illusions go. By not supporting them, it merely lets them quietly go down to dust. And what they hid is now revealed-an altar to the holy Name of God whereon His Word is written, with the gifts of your forgiveness laid before it and the memory of God not far behind.  As You Love enough to forgive and be here for giving, this Love reminds You gently of Your Self, the One long kept hidden.
 
4 Let us come daily to this holy place and spend a while together. Here we share our final dream. It is a dream in which there is no sorrow, for it holds a hint of all the glory given us by God. The grass is pushing through the soil, the trees are budding now, and birds have come to live within their branches. “Flower and fruitage now are seen where blight and mildew rested.” Earth is being born again in new perception.  Now it does feel much closer to Heaven. Night has gone, and we have come together in the light.  We do stand together gladly to see the Son rise in His glory once again.
 
5 From here we give salvation to the world, for it is here salvation was received.  In the midst of hell, God ever-present! The song of our rejoicing is the call to all the world that freedom is returned, that time is almost over, and God’s Son has but an instant more to wait until his Father is remembered, dreams are done, eternity has shined away the world, and only Heaven now exists at all.  The opportunity exists – right here and now – just awaiting Your acceptance. Will You now give it?

Introduction

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT ~ September 16, 1970

1 Words will mean little now.  You may not yet realize this, as I am still inundating You with them!  However, what We speak of here is that You are to pay more attention – be aware of – Your feeling, and Your reaction to it in each instance. We use them – the words We speak of – but as guides on which we do not now depend. For now we seek direct experience of truth alone.  For this, Our basic need is quiet mind. The lessons which remain are merely introductions to the times in which we leave the world of pain and go to enter peace. Now we begin to reach the goal this course has set and find the end toward which our practicing was geared.

These words are not about the world, but Your healing of it; both meanings extant: the healing of Your mind attachment to it, and the healing of the belief that there could be such a thing.

2 Now we attempt to let the exercise be merely a beginning.  Come now to this place. For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father.  Longing for His Love, for which We have starved.  That is no exaggeration; hence the great epidemic of obesity. For what could You ever hunger but God. He has promised He will take the final step Himself. And we are sure His promises are kept. We have come far along the road, and now we wait for Him. Although He’s ever-present, We are not! Acknowledge and realize His Presence. We will continue spending time with Him each morning and at night, as long as makes us happy. We will not consider time a matter of duration now.  The necessity is contact, not form. We use as much as we will need for the result that we desire.  Desire is what You need desire.  Just lean into it for Your fulfillment. Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance in between, calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal.  Now You know He is but Your constant companion.  Acknowledge Him every instant, and watch joy increase!

3 We will continue with a central thought for all the days to come. And we will use that thought to introduce our times of rest and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not content ourselves with simple practicing in the remaining holy instants which conclude the year that we have given God. This is Your Gift to Him of Your Self; be not a faithless giver. We say some simple words of welcome and expect our Father to reveal Himself as He has promised. We have called on Him, and He has promised that His Son will not remain unanswered when he calls His Name.  He is ever-present, answering You, before You do ask!

And wait for Him to take the step to us that He has told us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take when we invited Him.  Trust Him!  He is here! He has not left His Son in all his madness nor betrayed His trust in him. Has not His faithfulness earned Him the invitation that He seeks to make us happy?  Reach out with longing.  He is responding! We will offer it, and it will be accepted. So our times with Him will now be spent. We say the words of invitation that His Voice suggests, and then we wait for Him to come to us.  We are receptive, longing for His Love.

5 Now is the time of prophecy fulfilled. Now are all ancient promises upheld and fully kept. Made by God at the very instant of the separation.

Father, we give these holy times to You in gratitude to Him Who taught us how to leave the world of sorrow in exchange for its replacement given us by You.  And We are grateful! We look not backward now. We look ahead and fix our eyes upon the journey’s end. Accept these little gifts of thanks from us, as through Christ’s vision we behold a world beyond the one we made and take that world to be the full replacement of our own.  Help Us here with Our courage.  We need it!  The world’s pull is stronger; yet You’re much stronger!

7 And now we wait in silence, unafraid and certain of Your coming. We have sought to find our way by following the Guide You sent to us. We did not know the way, but You did not forget us. And we know that You will not forget us now. We realize that We have never, ever, been forsaken! We ask but that Your ancient promises be kept which are Your Will to keep.

L e s s o n  231

Father, I will but to remember You.

The thought that came to You was quite correct.  It is, indeed the Lesson most profound and what the Course is all about: Your Relationship with God.  As It goes, so goes the relationships with All Your Brothers.
 
 
1 What can I seek for, Father, but Your Love? For Your Love is but the Source for All Reality, which includes relationships. Perhaps I think I seek for something else-a something I have called by many names.  Some person or some thing, which seems to Me either appealing or desirable to meet My own needs. Yet they are but poor substitutes for You. I do forget this. Yet is Your Love the only thing I seek or ever sought. For there is nothing else that I could ever really want to find.  Why seek a little part when All is readily available to Me through You. Let me remember You. You are the Source and Substance of everything including Me! What else could I desire but the truth about myself?
 
 
2 This is your will, my brother. And you share this will with me, and with the One as well Who is our Father. We have been distracted and distorted by the phantasmagoria of the dream.  We are sick of all the dreaming and ready for Your Love.  We know the Truth of what You’re saying here. To remember Him is Heaven. This we seek. And only this is what it will be given us to find. 
Knowing only God is Reality.

What is Salvation

1Salvation is a promise made by God that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot not be kept. In other words, it is a sacred pact that God has with His Son: They must be One.  Thus separation is impossible; it is but seeming.  What God Knows and Is overrides the dream.

It guarantees that time will have an end, and all the thoughts that have been born in time will end as well.  Truth is triumphant; right now, here, present. You need but reach out and You will find it. God’s Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.  For His Word is Love, a Love that heals all thoughts of separation if You but will Yourself to feel It.

 
2 The Thought of peace was given to God’s Son the instant that his mind had thought of war.  Strange new, one-sided war with His Father. There was no need for such a Thought before, for peace was given without opposite and merely was. But when the mind is split, there is a need of healing.

LESSON ONE HUNDRED-NINETY-THREE

Love's Guidance

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  193

All things are lessons God would have me learn.  There must be a gift, and even freedom and salvation, available in every instant, despite the human picture.  And ‘human’ and ‘ego are synonymous in the nightmare of separation.  For it is only a term for a quite narrowed point of view.

One that the ego is quite attached to. … Remember that You are not the ego.

1 God does not know of learning. – For the Son of God already knows all things the Father-Mother knows.  To remind is not the same as teaching.  See the word “re-mind”.  That is what this Course is doing: bringing You back from ‘living’ as body, when You are really Mind.

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. – Our God, Our Source, that We call Father-Mother, knows only perfect happiness and peace, with no knowing of the misery the slleping Son of God endures.  Can Truth know a lie?  Despite the Son’s somnolent state, God does extend to Her, to Him, good that’s both continual and eternal. – This is His Will. And thus His Will provides the means to guarantee that it is done.  Despite His willful dreams, the Son has not for an instant been abandoned. God’s Love for Him forever continues.

2 God sees no contradictions. – God’s Vision is of pure perfection and of absolute harmony; in other words: Reality. He does not see the Son’s peculiar imaginations. – Yet His Son believes he sees them. It never dawns on Him that He is dreaming, that He’s insane.  I know My words sound harsh, yet is it sane to prefer a nightmare to a wonderful Reality that is purely Love?   You know it isn’t

Thus he – and that He is You – has a need for One Who can correct his erring sight and give him vision that will lead him back to where perception ceases. Perception is how You think a thing is, opposed to Knowing. Perception is a part of dreaming. – God does not perceive at all. – He simply Knows, and His Knowing is the endless Universe. – 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. – As the sleeping Son reaches out from the dream to connect with Me, with God, or with the Holy Spirit, His way of seeing things – i.e. perception – starts to improve as His thoughts reach out for Truth and Beauty. He feels nearer God. – It is He Who answers what His Son would contradict and keeps his sinlessness forever safe.  And in the reacing out blindly for safety, He finds himself embraced and completely loved.  His mind starts changing.  He’s beginning to remember.  Heaven starts to joy at His recalling.  And the Son is Who?  No other than You.

3God offers no forgiveness, for He knows no sin is possible. – You are forever perfect in His eyes. – 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. The speaking here is of Myself, yet is a possibility for Every One of You, here and now.  It is interesting that My Function of Loving is what All do notice about Me; and yet My strongest demonstrations were related to Life: the Resurrection, raising of the ‘dead’, and every one of the healings.

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.  Help?  Help? Screams the sleeping Son of God a myriad of times throughout the day, although He knows it not, for He sees His cry for help as any one of many emotions.  Thus came One Awake to rouse Him from His agony.

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. 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.  Do You see why I harp on forgiveness?  Could You see Your Brother as an enemy and still be free?

Look at what forgiveness can do for You: 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.  A holy miracle it is for You to gain Your freedom!  For hatred is such a heavy burden, weighing You down, and this does often show up as overweight.

5 These are the lessons God would have you learn. His Will reflects them all, and they reflect His loving kindness to the Son He loves. 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. It is this:

6 Forgive and you will see this differently.

Let it but go and You’ll see Your Love flow.

7 Certain it is that all distress does not appear to be but unforgiveness. – Yet it surely is.  If it were not so, I would have told You. Yet that is the content underneath the form.  There is but one ego, expressed by countless enslaved minds, just as there is One God expressed infinitely as Son of God.

It is this sameness which makes learning sure because the lesson is so simple that it cannot be rejected in the end.  Either You Love Your Brother or You don’t Love.

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.

8 Forgive and you will see this differently.

9 These are the words the Holy Spirit speaks in all your tribulations, all your pain, all suffering regardless of its forms. These are the words with which temptation ends and guilt, abandoned, is revered no more. These are the words which end the dream of sin and rid the mind of fear. These are the words by which salvation comes to all the world.  Let’s say this even more simply: If You have aught against Your Brother – ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ the answer is just the same – let it go.  It never really happened because You’re living in a dream that You are hanging on to for dear ‘life’; life of the ego.  Let that go as well.

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? 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.  How to forgive?  How to let it go?  Good questions.  Remind Yourself that this is but a dream made up by the pesky ego.  Swat it away, as You would swat a fly.  Remind Yourself that You have been deluded by Your own self.  Therefore, You can stop!  It takes self-discipline, and it’s worth it!

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? 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: if You are angry, then You’ve forgotten to forgive Your Brother; Once again are You immersed in the dream.  Slap upside of Your head and yell wake up! (Yell to Yourself, and not to Your Brother!)

12 God would not have you suffer thus. He would help you forgive yourself. His Son does not remember who he is. And God would have him not forget His Love and all the gifts His Love brings with it. Would you now renounce your own salvation?  This is a time to make a different choice.  Time to choose again.

Would you fail to learn the simple lessons Heaven’s Teacher sets before you that all pain may disappear and God may be remembered by His Son?  Would You let stubborn self-righteousness rob You of Your Real Self.  Would You stay an foolish puppet of the ego forever?

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. Will You stop treasuring all grievances! Save Your silver box for forgivenesses!

I’m right!

He’s wrong!

It’s Your favorite song!

God would free You from all thought of self-righteousness, transforming it through forgiveness, until it is Love.

He would ensure his holy rest remain untroubled and serene, without a care in an eternal home – of such joyous Life, each moment precious! – 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. For God has willed that laughter should replace each one and that His Son be free again.  I am with All of You as You accept God’s great Gifts of Love.

14 We will attempt today to overcome a thousand seeming obstacles to peace in just one day. Let mercy come to you more quickly. Do not try to hold it off another day, another minute, or another instant. Time was made for this. 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.  Won’t You give Me that little willingness, and in return the Father has an Eternity of great happiness for You.  Won’t You accept these loving Gifts for You?

15 Give all you can 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. And as we practice, let us think about all things we saved to settle by ourselves and kept apart from healing. Let us give them 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.  It’s time for Us to All hold hands and to run Home together!  Why suffer one more instant when You are so Loved and longed for.

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. 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.  Short and sweet: Let it go; let Your Love flow!

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. Thus will you remain unbound, in peace eternal in the world of time. 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.  Be here NOW, for Your Function is to Love.  I’ll help You do it!

18 To all that speaks of terror, answer thus:

19 I will forgive and this will disappear.  Don’t You believe this?  You have not tried it.

20 To every apprehension, every care, and every form of suffering, repeat these selfsame words. 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.  Each little step does bring You closer to a living Heaven.

INTRODUCTION to Lessons 181 – 200

I181:1 Our next few lessons make a special point of firming up your willingness to make your weak commitment strong, your scattered goals blend into one intent. – All commitment does start with this one thing: just the little willingness to do it, whatever it takes.  So even if You do slip and fall, You get right up again. – You are not asked for total dedication all the time, as yet. But you are asked to practice now in order to attain the sense of peace such unified commitment will bestow, if only intermittently. It is experiencing this which makes it sure that you will give your total willingness to following the way the course sets forth.  How did He segue from the little willingness to total?!  (He is laughing hard!)  Only the ego would ask that question!  By now, don’t You think that You should know Me!  Give Me an inch of good, and I’ll give You back a mile of it.  Give Me a drop of Love, and I’ll return to You an ocean.

With what are We dealing but the Divine Qualities of God.  Life, Truth and Love.  Spirit, Soul and Mind.  Holy Divine Principle, Its Joy and Peace.  How precious are the attributes of God.  They are Your treasure.  And where Your treasure is, there is Your Love.

2 Our lessons now are geared specifically to widening horizons – by loosening the ego’s stranglehold that it has on You – and direct approaches to the special blocks which keep your vision narrow and too limited to let you see the value of our goal.  What has it been that has severely narrowed Your horizons?

Well, what else but sir and lady ego?

We are attempting now to lift these blocks, however briefly. Words alone can not convey the sense of liberation which their lifting brings. – Yes, that day that Helen had, recounted in “Absence From Felicity”1 is a perfect example.  Every day – and every moment can and will be like that! – But the experience of freedom and of peace that comes as you give up your tight control of what you see speaks for itself. Your motivation will be so intensified that words become of little consequence. You will be sure of what you want and what is valueless.  The ego will attempt to deter Your progress, tell You that You can’t sustain such an experience.  And yet the ego is always lying.  Do not believe it.  Tell it to shut up, and really mean it!

3 And so we start our journey beyond words by concentrating first on what impedes our progress still. Experience of what exists beyond defensiveness remains beyond achievement while it is denied. It may be there, but you cannot accept its presence.  For You are quite defended against It.  And what does live in the Silence but experience of perfect Love and safety. So we now attempt to go past all defenses for a little while each day. No more than this is asked because no more than this is needed. It will be enough to guarantee the rest will come.  One Holy Moment is but a promise of All which await Your invitation!

Love's Guidance

TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face.

L e s s o n  163

There is no death. the Son of God is free. 

Glory, glory hallelujah, hosanna in the highest!  It feels like Christmas every single day.  The re-coming in consciousness of Christ.  Its Light dissipates the ego’s darkness.  See It freeing every mind from dimness, Christ’s Vision bringing clarity to All.

1 Death is a thought which takes on many forms, often unrecognized. It may appear as sadness, fear, anxiety, or doubt; as anger, faithlessness, and lack of trust; concern for bodies, envy, and all forms in which the wish to be as you are not may come to tempt you.  And ‘death’ is the foundation that supports the dream ongoing.  Without it is gone the opportunity to exit a life that’s gotten tiresome and boring. Therefore, it is but crucial to the dream.  And in its many forms it does give spice to endless dreaming.

All such thoughts are but reflections of the worshipping of death as savior and as giver of release.  (From a single dream, but not from dreaming.)

2 Embodiment of fear, the host of sin, god of the guilty, and the lord of all illusions and deceptions, does the thought of death seem mighty. For it seems to hold all living things within its withered hand; all hopes and wishes in its blighting grasp. All goals perceived but in its sightless eyes. The frail, the helpless, and the sick bow down before its image, thinking it alone is real, inevitable, worthy of their trust. For it alone will surely come.  What You believe in and do rely on has become Your god.

3 All things but death are seen to be unsure, too quickly lost however hard to gain, uncertain in their outcome, apt to fail the hopes they once engendered and to leave the taste of dust and ashes in their wake in place of aspirations and of dreams.  And ‘death’ is so reliable.  Who could not count on it to finally end the pain of so-called ‘living’?  And standing behind its unholy relief is the promise of a brand-new dream!  Oh what frabuous joy!  Another opportunity to dream.

But death is counted on. For it will come with certain footsteps when the time has come for its arrival. It will never fail to take all life as hostage to itself.  Make no mistake, it is Your petty god, for You are surer of it than You are of God Our dear Father and Our Mother.

4 Would you bow down to idols such as this? – Yes, apparently! – Here is the strength and might of God Himself perceived within an idol made of dust. Here is the opposite of God – which is Life Itself – proclaimed as lord of all creation, stronger than God’s Will for life, the endlessness of love and Heaven’s perfect, changeless constancy. Here is the Will of Father and of Son defeated finally and laid to rest beneath the headstone death has placed upon the body of the holy Son of God.  Ringed about with rituals considered ‘sacred’.  Consider funerals in church.  The message that ‘matter’ is the arbiter of so-called ‘life’ because it can ‘die’.  What utter nonsense.  What bizarre beliefs; the Son of God has fallen in a spell, engendered by His love of willfulness.

5 Unholy in defeat, he has become what death would have him be. His epitaph, which death itself has written, gives no name to him, for he has passed to dust. It says but this: “Here lies a witness God is dead.” And this it writes again and still again, while all the while its worshippers agree, and kneeling down with foreheads to the ground, they whisper fearfully that it is so.  Can You deny this?  You know that You can’t.  Your minds are full of foolishness, again, engendered by Your selfish willfulness.   You have not yet been willing to improve Your mind enough to set free Your Brothers from these delusions.

Will You now commit to Join with Me, this time permanently?

6 It is impossible to worship death in any form and still select a few you would not cherish and would yet avoid while still believing in the rest. For death is total. Either all things die or else they live and cannot die. No compromise is possible. For here again we see an obvious position which we must accept if we be sane; what contradicts one thought entirely can not be true unless its opposite is proven false.  This is what I ask You to commit to: the understanding that Life is All there is for God is Love.  This understanding will abolish sickness, sin, and dying.  By ending nightmares, it ushers in the happy dream.  From there it is but one simple step to Heaven, Your Holy Freedom.

The Universe, dancing in joyous anticipation, does await Your happy, Holy Homecoming!

7 The idea of the death of God is so preposterous that even the insane have difficulty in believing it. For it implies that God was once alive and somehow perished, killed, apparently, by those who did not want him to survive. Their stronger will could triumph over His, and so eternal life gave way to death. And with the Father died the Son as well.  Such are the beliefs fixating on crucifixion rather than the Resurrection.  Hence the peculiar term ‘good’ Friday.  What’s ‘good’ about it?

Do You see how many things in the dream that You mindlessly accept as ‘givens’?

8 Death’s worshippers may be afraid. And yet can thoughts like these be fearful? If they saw that it is only this which they believed, they would be instantly released. And you will show them this today. There is no death, and we renounce it now in every form for their salvation and our own as well.  Ask Yourself this and notice Your own answer: does ‘dying’ promise You Your freedom?  Does it offer You an ‘out’ when this ‘life’ seems beyond bearing?  If so, this means that You have fallen prey to ego thinking.

Don’t get depressed!  The remedy is simple.  Just change Your mind.  You’re free to do that.

God made not death. Whatever form it takes must therefore be illusion. This the stand we take today. And it is given us to look past death and see the light beyond.  Say: ‘No thank You!’ to all thoughts of ‘dying’ and just walk on by.  And You will see the Light right here and now.

9 Our Father, – Giver of all Good – bless our eyes today. – Help Us be aware that We are so blessed – We are Your messengers, and we would look upon the glorious reflection of Your Love which shines in everything. – We long for eyes of Love to see as You. –We live and breathe in You alone. – You are Our breath and breathing.  As Paul said in the Bible, We live and move and have Our Be-ing1 not just in You, but as You.  Our Real Life is You. – We are not separate from Your eternal life. There is no death, for death is not Your Will. And we abide where You have placed us, in the Life we share with You and with all living things, to be like You and part of You forever. We accept Your Thoughts as ours, and our will is one with Yours eternally. Amen.  Dear God!  You have not just a little, but all My willingness!

[Thank you Dear Brother]

L e s s o n  107

Truth will correct the errors in my mind.

My long enslaved mind, starving for the Truth.

Indeed, it will, for that is what A Course In Miracles is about: The miracles that gladly bring to You Your freedom.

1 What can correct illusions but the truth?

And what is Truth but God, Our dear Father, and Our dear Mother.  All good qualities in One Source Divine.

And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered, errors disappear.

You have but fallen asleep and keep dreaming such strange dreams, far from Reality.  You had thought them real for so very long, and now You are learning that they aren’t.

They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because without belief they have no life, and so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.

You have thought You were a body that began from dust and ended thus.  Now You are learning that You are Mind – like God – You’re the Divine Consciousness.

2 Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel?

It would be the complete absence of fear.  Therefore, joyous peace.

Try to remember when there was a time-perhaps a minute, maybe even less-when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe.

Loved and safe You are!

Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity.

‘The end of time’ is not the end of You, but it is the end of dreaming.  For You will joyously step out of the dream into the glorious Goodness of forever.  Reality is superlative!

The stillness is never boring.  Boredom is found only within the dream.  Reality is vibrant!

Step willingly into the quiet Mind.

3 Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times and then be multiplied another hundred more. And now you have a hint, not more than just the faintest intimation of the state your mind will rest in when the truth has come.

Peace and happiness – found as the quiet mind – hold Life that is truly amazing.

4 Without illusions there could be no fear, no doubt, and no attack. – For illusion is the so-called ‘source’ of them.  They are unknown to Reality. – When truth has come, all pain is over, for there is no room for transitory thoughts and dead ideas to linger in your mind. – I know the dream seems so true to You, and yet it isn’t real.  Truth alone makes free. – Truth occupies your mind completely, liberating you from all beliefs in the ephemeral. They have no place because the truth has come, and they are nowhere. They cannot be found, for truth is everywhere forever now.

All the horror stories in the dream have vanished, for they never really were.  Where they seemed to be is now seen to be joyful Reality.

5 When truth has come, it does not stay a while to disappear or change to something else. It does not shift and alter in its form, nor come and go and go and come again. It stays exactly as it always was, to be depended on in every need and trusted with a perfect trust in all the seeming difficulties and the doubts that the appearances the world presents engender. They will merely flow away when truth corrects the errors in your mind.

While error has seemed to be persistent, the Truth is now found to be consistent.

6 When truth has come, it harbours in its wings the gift of perfect constancy and love which does not falter in the face of pain but looks beyond it, steadily and sure. 

For It does see Reality, not dreams.

Here is the gift of healing, for the truth needs no defense, and therefore no attack is possible. Illusions can be brought to truth to be corrected. But the truth stands far beyond illusions and cannot be brought to them to turn them into truth.

7 Truth does not come and go nor shift nor change, in this appearance now and then in that, evading capture and escaping grasp. It does not hide. It stands in open light, in obvious accessibility. It is impossible that anyone could seek it truly and would not succeed.

Again, Truth is consistent.  By Its consistency, all errors are corrected.

8 Today belongs to truth. Give truth its due, and it will give you yours. You were not meant to suffer and to die. Your Father wills these dreams be gone. Let truth correct them all. We do not ask for what we do not have. We merely ask for what belongs to us, that we may recognize it as our own.

Seek not to just know the Truth in any troubling situation, but to have Truth Itself revealed to You, so that You may know and experience It, not just Its healing power.

9 Today we practice on the happy note of certainty that has been born of truth. The shaky and unsteady footsteps of illusion is not our approach today. We are as certain of success as we are sure we live and hope and breathe and think. We do not doubt we walk with truth today and count on it to enter into all the exercises that we do this day.

For Truth is God is Be-ing You.  This is an intimate Relationship; one that is Holy.

10 Begin by asking Him Who goes with you upon this undertaking that He be in your awareness as you go with Him. You are not made of flesh and blood and bone but were created by the self-same Thought which gave the gift of life to Him as well. He is your Brother and so like to you your Father knows that you are both the same. It is your Self you ask to go with you, and how could He be absent where you are?

This Self – this Holy Spirit – is the sacred place where All the Universe is One.  It is Infinite with no boundaries nor limits in any direction.  And All of It is Good.

This is Your eternal Home, and Its other Name is Heaven.

11 Truth will correct all errors in your mind which tell you you could be apart from Him.

For apartness is the basis of the belief that separation was possible.  It wasn’t, and it isn’t, and it takes a lot of effort to pretend it does.  This effort is why You invented ‘aging’ and attributed it to God.  From there it was but one short step to ‘dying’ and then ‘birth’, none of which exist in Heaven, where Life is always fresh and new.

You speak to Him today and make your pledge to let His function be fulfilled through you. To share His function is to share His joy. His confidence is with you, as you say:

12 Truth will correct all errors in my mind,
And I will rest in Him Who is my Self.

A sweet reunion.

13 Then let Him lead you gently to the truth which will envelop you and give you peace so deep and tranquil that you will return to the familiar world reluctantly.

You thought You knew what happiness was before Heaven showed Its lovely face to You.

14 And yet you will be glad to look again upon this world. For you will bring with you the promise of the changes which the truth that goes with you will carry to the world. They will increase with every gift you give of five small minutes, and the errors that surround the world will be corrected as you let them be corrected in your mind.

For minds are joined, and, thus, Your correction becomes Every One’s.

15 Do not forget your function for today. Each time you tell yourself with confidence, “Truth will correct all errors in my mind,” you speak for all the world and Him Who would release the world as He would set you free.

All the Universe does gladly support Your willingness to be a part of the healing of the dream.

[Thank you Dear Brother]

Workbook PART II

Introduction

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT ~ September 16, 1970

Here are We now, more than halfway through the year, and You have yet to Waken.  What does it take for You to choose to wake?  These Lessons are not given to become the yearly ritual.  They are meant to be Your Reveille.  i.e. They’re Your bugle call to thought and action.

They but have a sacred purpose: Waking You to God’s ever-present Source of Your most Holy Be-ing.  They are meant to bring the Son back into His Holy Right Mind.  Please do allow this.

IP2:1 Words will mean little now. We use them but as guides on which we do not now depend. For now we seek direct experience of truth alone. –And yet must I continue to speak until these Lessons truly come alive for You, not just something You do, but the most practical expression of My teaching. – The lessons which remain are merely introductions to the times in which we leave the world of pain and go to enter peace. Now we begin to reach the goal this course has set and find the end toward which our practicing was geared.  I cannot do this for You.  Your participation is also what is needed.

Surely You do not wish endlessly to be a never- graduating student?  Almost there but just not quite getting it.  Stuck or not, You need to but listen to the Holy Spirit.

2 Now we attempt to let the exercise be merely a beginning. For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father. He has promised He will take the final step Himself. And we are sure His promises are kept. We have come far along the road, and now we wait for Him. We will continue spending time with Him each morning and at night, as long as makes us happy. We will not consider time a matter of duration now. We use as much as we will need for the result that we desire. Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance in between, calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal.  We know that God would never tempt Us with forgetfulness; it must be the ego.

3 We will continue with a central thought for all the days to come. And we will use that thought to introduce our times of rest and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not content ourselves with simple practicing in the remaining holy instants which conclude the year that we have given God. We say some simple words of welcome and expect our Father to reveal Himself as He has promised. We have called on Him, and He has promised that His Son will not remain unanswered when he calls His Name.  Our belovèd God is ever-present.  If We are here, He must be here as well.  For We do not exist apart from Him. It’s not possible.

4 Now do we come to Him with but His Word upon our minds and hearts. And wait for Him to take the step to us that He has told us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take when we invited Him. He has not left His Son in all his madness nor betrayed His trust in him.  – Stupidly We turned Our backs on Him, yet He stayed right by Us.  For He is but Love. – Has not His faithfulness earned Him the invitation that He seeks to make us happy? We will offer it, and it will be accepted. So our times with Him will now be spent. We say the words of invitation that His Voice suggests, and then we wait for Him to come to us.  For He does walk with You and talk with You, and never leaves You, for You are His own.

5 Now is the time of prophecy fulfilled. Now are all ancient promises upheld and fully kept. No step remains for time to separate from its accomplishment. For now we cannot fail. Sit silently and wait upon your Father. He has willed to come to you when you have recognized it is your will He do so. And you could have never come this far unless you saw, however dimly, that it is your will.  I know that You will persevere, for I feel Your Love for God in each breath You take.

6 I am so close to you we cannot fail. Father, we give these holy times to You in gratitude to Him Who taught us how to leave the world of sorrow in exchange for its replacement given us by You. We look not backward now. We look ahead and fix our eyes upon the journey’s end. Accept these little gifts of thanks from us, as through Christ’s vision we behold a world beyond the one we made and take that world to be the full replacement of our own.  Won’t You relinquish misery for joy?

7 And now we wait in silence, unafraid and certain of Your coming. We have sought to find our way by following the Guide You sent to us. We did not know the way, but You did not forget us. And we know that You will not forget us now. We ask but that Your ancient promises be kept which are Your Will to keep. We will with You in asking this. The Father and the Son, Whose holy Will created all that is, can fail in nothing. In this certainty, we undertake these last few steps to You and rest in confidence upon Your Love, Which will not fail the Son who calls to You.  What seems an endless journey can come to fruition in a Holy Instant of the little willingness I ask of You.

8 And so we start upon the final part of this one holy year which we have spent together in the search for truth and God, Who is its one Creator. We have found the way He chose for us and made the choice to follow it as He would have us go. His hand has held us up. His Thoughts have lit the darkness of our minds. His Love has called to us unceasingly since time began.  Let Me but make an important distinction here: “since time began” does not mean the beginning of all things, but simply the start of the separation, for Reality has always been and always will be, for Now is forever Eternal.

9 We had a wish that God would fail to have the Son whom He created for Himself. We wanted God to change Himself and be what we would make of Him. And we believed that our insane desires were the truth. Now we are glad that this is all undone, and we no longer think illusions true. – Now are We truly joyous once again. – The memory of God is shimmering across the wide horizons of our minds.  – Both memory and view unlimited. – A moment more, and it will rise again. A moment more, and we who are God’s Sons are safely home, where He would have us be.  “Safely Home”: was there ever a phrase more lovely that this one, for All the lonely dreaming Wanderers.

10 Now is the need for practice almost done. For in this final section we will come to understand that we need only call to God and all temptations disappear. Instead of words, we need but feel His Love. Instead of prayer, we need but call His Name. Instead of judging, we need but be still and let all things be healed. We will accept the way God’s plan will end, as we received the way it started. Now it is complete. This year has brought us to eternity.  Let it be this year.

11 One further use for words we still retain. From time to time, instructions on a theme of special relevance will intersperse our daily lessons and the periods of wordless, deep experience which should come afterwards. These special thoughts should be reviewed each day, each one of them to be continued till the next is given you. They should be slowly read and thought about a little while, preceding one of the holy and blessed instants in the day. We give the first of these instructions now.  Remember I am with You all the time.


What is Forgiveness

1 Forgiveness recognizes what you thought your brother did to you has not occurred. For this to be true, all You see must therefore be delusion.

It does not pardon sins and make them real. It sees there was no sin. And in this view are all your sins forgiven. If it never happened to You, then neither could it ever have happened by You.  Your sinless Brother makes You sinless too, and vice versa.  You see, His innocence releases You.

What is sin except a false idea about God’s Son? – As You well know, the ego does not see it that way,  For the ego loves to vilify its Brothers, its Holy Brothers; a fact that does but infuriate it.  For the ego always must be special.  Yet forgiveness does simply bypass all that insanity. –  Forgiveness merely sees its falsity and therefore lets it go. What then is free to take its place is now the Will of God.  For once the belief of sin is gone, what could You see and Be but God’s Holy Son?

2 An unforgiving thought is one which makes a judgment that it will not raise to doubt, although it is not true. – And why is this, pray tell, but that the local deity is but offended.  ‘’Vengeance is Mine!’ it screams. – The words and scream may be disguised to conceal a white-lipped rage. – The mind is closed and will not be released. – Thus are grudges held what seems like forever, while hatred ferments like cheapest wine. – The thought protects projection, tightening its chains so that distortions are more veiled and more obscure, less easily accessible to doubt, and further kept from reason.  And thus it sours – like the individual who holds it – into vinegar. – What can come between a fixed projection and the aim that it has chosen as its needed goal?  To make a Brother ‘wrong’ to make You ‘right’.

3 An unforgiving thought does many things. In frantic action, it pursues its goal, twisting and overturning what it sees as interfering with its chosen path. Distortion is its purpose and the means by which it would accomplish it as well. – It seems to turn the Holy Son of God into a demon: sin personified. – It sets about its furious attempts to smash reality, without concern for anything that would appear to pose a contradiction to its point of view.  It blinds itself, both to God and to Reality, distorting itself and Love into a quest for unholy vengeance.

4 Forgiveness, on the other hand, is still and quietly does nothing. It offends no aspect of reality nor seeks to twist it to appearance that it likes.  Its quiet gentleness springs from its motive for giving.

It merely looks and waits and judges not. He who would not forgive must judge, for he must justify his failure to forgive. But he who would forgive himself must learn to welcome truth exactly as it is.  To know Yourself the Son of God, so must You also know Your belovèd Brother.

5 Do nothing, then, and let forgiveness show you what to do through Him Who is your Guide, your Savior and Defender, strong in hope, and certain of your ultimate success. He has forgiven you already, for such is His function given Him by God.  – And how has the Holy Spirit ‘forgiven’ You?  By never seeing aught but Your Holy perfection. – Now must you share His function and forgive whom He has saved, whose sinlessness He sees, and whom He honors as the Son of God.  How He sees You, so does He see every One of Your Brothers.

L e s s o n  221

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

Peace to my mind. Let all my thoughts be still.  What could be more wonderful than a peaceful, quiet mind, resting in the stillness.  This is joy indeed.

1 Father, I come to You today to seek the peace that You alone can give.  Our constant connection is all the peace that I would desire.  Since You are always here for Me, and All of Us as well, then peace must be for Every One, closer than Our breathing.

I come in silence. Shutting up the ever-babbling mind.  Allowing consciousness to have a rest.  A precious break from being in control. – In the quiet of my heart, the deep recesses of my mind, I wait and listen for Your Voice.  My Be-ing sighs in relief as I say: Brother, take over. My Father, speak to me today. I come to hear Your Voice in silence and in certainty and love, sure You will hear my call and answer me.  When I come in silence, ready I am to listen and to Love what I’m hearing.

2 Now do we wait in quiet. God is here because we wait together. – God is ever-present. He but waits for Our call, and answers. – I am sure that He will speak to you, and you will hear. – He is always speaking Love to You, awaiting now Your happy choice to listen.– Accept my confidence, for it is yours. Our minds are joined. – Feel the happy Peace We share together – We wait with one intent-to hear our Father’s answer to our call, to let our thoughts be still and find His peace, to hear Him speak to us of what we are, – Holy Sons of God Who long for their Source – and to reveal Himself unto His Son.  How empty life has been for all these eons, without Our experience of Our Oneness as Our God.  For God is not a person, but the Nature and Totality of All.  And Be-ing part of All is a Love that is beyond compare.

What Joy awaits Us!

[Thank you Dear Brother]

LESSON ONE HUNDRED-NINETY-THREE

Love's Guidance

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  193

All things are lessons God would have me learn.  There must be a gift, and even freedom and salvation, available in every instant, despite the human picture.  And ‘human’ and ‘ego are synonymous in the nightmare of separation.  For it is only a term for a quite narrowed point of view.

One that the ego is quite attached to. … Remember that You are not the ego.

1 God does not know of learning. – For the Son of God already knows all things the Father-Mother knows.  To remind is not the same as teaching.  See the word “re-mind”.  That is what this Course is doing: bringing You back from ‘living’ as body, when You are really Mind.

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. – Our God, Our Source, that We call Father-Mother, knows only perfect happiness and peace, with no knowing of the misery the slleping Son of God endures.  Can Truth know a lie?  Despite the Son’s somnolent state, God does extend to Her, to Him, good that’s both continual and eternal. – This is His Will. And thus His Will provides the means to guarantee that it is done.  Despite His willful dreams, the Son has not for an instant been abandoned. God’s Love for Him forever continues.

2 God sees no contradictions. – God’s Vision is of pure perfection and of absolute harmony; in other words: Reality. He does not see the Son’s peculiar imaginations. – Yet His Son believes he sees them. It never dawns on Him that He is dreaming, that He’s insane.  I know My words sound harsh, yet is it sane to prefer a nightmare to a wonderful Reality that is purely Love?   You know it isn’t

Thus he – and that He is You – has a need for One Who can correct his erring sight and give him vision that will lead him back to where perception ceases. Perception is how You think a thing is, opposed to Knowing. Perception is a part of dreaming. – God does not perceive at all. – He simply Knows, and His Knowing is the endless Universe. – 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. – As the sleeping Son reaches out from the dream to connect with Me, with God, or with the Holy Spirit, His way of seeing things – i.e. perception – starts to improve as His thoughts reach out for Truth and Beauty. He feels nearer God. – It is He Who answers what His Son would contradict and keeps his sinlessness forever safe.  And in the reacing out blindly for safety, He finds himself embraced and completely loved.  His mind starts changing.  He’s beginning to remember.  Heaven starts to joy at His recalling.  And the Son is Who?  No other than You.

3God offers no forgiveness, for He knows no sin is possible. – You are forever perfect in His eyes. – 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. The speaking here is of Myself, yet is a possibility for Every One of You, here and now.  It is interesting that My Function of Loving is what All do notice about Me; and yet My strongest demonstrations were related to Life: the Resurrection, raising of the ‘dead’, and every one of the healings.

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.  Help?  Help? Screams the sleeping Son of God a myriad of times throughout the day, although He knows it not, for He sees His cry for help as any one of many emotions.  Thus came One Awake to rouse Him from His agony.

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. 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.  Do You see why I harp on forgiveness?  Could You see Your Brother as an enemy and still be free?

Look at what forgiveness can do for You: 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.  A holy miracle it is for You to gain Your freedom!  For hatred is such a heavy burden, weighing You down, and this does often show up as overweight.

5 These are the lessons God would have you learn. His Will reflects them all, and they reflect His loving kindness to the Son He loves. 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. It is this:

6 Forgive and you will see this differently.

Let it but go and You’ll see Your Love flow.

7 Certain it is that all distress does not appear to be but unforgiveness. – Yet it surely is.  If it were not so, I would have told You. Yet that is the content underneath the form.  There is but one ego, expressed by countless enslaved minds, just as there is One God expressed infinitely as Son of God.

It is this sameness which makes learning sure because the lesson is so simple that it cannot be rejected in the end.  Either You Love Your Brother or You don’t Love.

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.

8 Forgive and you will see this differently.

9 These are the words the Holy Spirit speaks in all your tribulations, all your pain, all suffering regardless of its forms. These are the words with which temptation ends and guilt, abandoned, is revered no more. These are the words which end the dream of sin and rid the mind of fear. These are the words by which salvation comes to all the world.  Let’s say this even more simply: If You have aught against Your Brother – ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ the answer is just the same – let it go.  It never really happened because You’re living in a dream that You are hanging on to for dear ‘life’; life of the ego.  Let that go as well.

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? 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.  How to forgive?  How to let it go?  Good questions.  Remind Yourself that this is but a dream made up by the pesky ego.  Swat it away, as You would swat a fly.  Remind Yourself that You have been deluded by Your own self.  Therefore, You can stop!  It takes self-discipline, and it’s worth it!

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? 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: if You are angry, then You’ve forgotten to forgive Your Brother; Once again are You immersed in the dream.  Slap upside of Your head and yell wake up! (Yell to Yourself, and not to Your Brother!)

12 God would not have you suffer thus. He would help you forgive yourself. His Son does not remember who he is. And God would have him not forget His Love and all the gifts His Love brings with it. Would you now renounce your own salvation?  This is a time to make a different choice.  Time to choose again.

Would you fail to learn the simple lessons Heaven’s Teacher sets before you that all pain may disappear and God may be remembered by His Son?  Would You let stubborn self-righteousness rob You of Your Real Self.  Would You stay an foolish puppet of the ego forever?

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. Will You stop treasuring all grievances! Save Your silver box for forgivenesses!

I’m right!

He’s wrong!

It’s Your favorite song!

God would free You from all thought of self-righteousness, transforming it through forgiveness, until it is Love.

He would ensure his holy rest remain untroubled and serene, without a care in an eternal home – of such joyous Life, each moment precious! – 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. For God has willed that laughter should replace each one and that His Son be free again.  I am with All of You as You accept God’s great Gifts of Love.

14 We will attempt today to overcome a thousand seeming obstacles to peace in just one day. Let mercy come to you more quickly. Do not try to hold it off another day, another minute, or another instant. Time was made for this. 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.  Won’t You give Me that little willingness, and in return the Father has an Eternity of great happiness for You.  Won’t You accept these loving Gifts for You?

15 Give all you can 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. And as we practice, let us think about all things we saved to settle by ourselves and kept apart from healing. Let us give them 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.  It’s time for Us to All hold hands and to run Home together!  Why suffer one more instant when You are so Loved and longed for.

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. 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.  Short and sweet: Let it go; let Your Love flow!

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. Thus will you remain unbound, in peace eternal in the world of time. 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.  Be here NOW, for Your Function is to Love.  I’ll help You do it!

18 To all that speaks of terror, answer thus:

19 I will forgive and this will disappear.  Don’t You believe this?  You have not tried it.

20 To every apprehension, every care, and every form of suffering, repeat these selfsame words. 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.  Each little step does bring You closer to a living Heaven.

INTRODUCTION to Lessons 181 – 200

I181:1 Our next few lessons make a special point of firming up your willingness to make your weak commitment strong, your scattered goals blend into one intent. – All commitment does start with this one thing: just the little willingness to do it, whatever it takes.  So even if You do slip and fall, You get right up again. – You are not asked for total dedication all the time, as yet. But you are asked to practice now in order to attain the sense of peace such unified commitment will bestow, if only intermittently. It is experiencing this which makes it sure that you will give your total willingness to following the way the course sets forth.  How did He segue from the little willingness to total?!  (He is laughing hard!)  Only the ego would ask that question!  By now, don’t You think that You should know Me!  Give Me an inch of good, and I’ll give You back a mile of it.  Give Me a drop of Love, and I’ll return to You an ocean.

With what are We dealing but the Divine Qualities of God.  Life, Truth and Love.  Spirit, Soul and Mind.  Holy Divine Principle, Its Joy and Peace.  How precious are the attributes of God.  They are Your treasure.  And where Your treasure is, there is Your Love.

2 Our lessons now are geared specifically to widening horizons – by loosening the ego’s stranglehold that it has on You – and direct approaches to the special blocks which keep your vision narrow and too limited to let you see the value of our goal.  What has it been that has severely narrowed Your horizons?

Well, what else but sir and lady ego?

We are attempting now to lift these blocks, however briefly. Words alone can not convey the sense of liberation which their lifting brings. – Yes, that day that Helen had, recounted in “Absence From Felicity”1 is a perfect example.  Every day – and every moment can and will be like that! – But the experience of freedom and of peace that comes as you give up your tight control of what you see speaks for itself. Your motivation will be so intensified that words become of little consequence. You will be sure of what you want and what is valueless.  The ego will attempt to deter Your progress, tell You that You can’t sustain such an experience.  And yet the ego is always lying.  Do not believe it.  Tell it to shut up, and really mean it!

3 And so we start our journey beyond words by concentrating first on what impedes our progress still. Experience of what exists beyond defensiveness remains beyond achievement while it is denied. It may be there, but you cannot accept its presence.  For You are quite defended against It.  And what does live in the Silence but experience of perfect Love and safety. So we now attempt to go past all defenses for a little while each day. No more than this is asked because no more than this is needed. It will be enough to guarantee the rest will come.  One Holy Moment is but a promise of All which await Your invitation!

[Thank you Dear Brother]

LESSON ONE HUNDRED-SIXTY-THREE

Love's Guidance

TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face.

L e s s o n  163

There is no death. the Son of God is free. 

Glory, glory hallelujah, hosanna in the highest!  It feels like Christmas every single day.  The re-coming in consciousness of Christ.  Its Light dissipates the ego’s darkness.  See It freeing every mind from dimness, Christ’s Vision bringing clarity to All.

1 Death is a thought which takes on many forms, often unrecognized. It may appear as sadness, fear, anxiety, or doubt; as anger, faithlessness, and lack of trust; concern for bodies, envy, and all forms in which the wish to be as you are not may come to tempt you.  And ‘death’ is the foundation that supports the dream ongoing.  Without it is gone the opportunity to exit a life that’s gotten tiresome and boring. Therefore, it is but crucial to the dream.  And in its many forms it does give spice to endless dreaming.

All such thoughts are but reflections of the worshipping of death as savior and as giver of release.  (From a single dream, but not from dreaming.)

2 Embodiment of fear, the host of sin, god of the guilty, and the lord of all illusions and deceptions, does the thought of death seem mighty. For it seems to hold all living things within its withered hand; all hopes and wishes in its blighting grasp. All goals perceived but in its sightless eyes. The frail, the helpless, and the sick bow down before its image, thinking it alone is real, inevitable, worthy of their trust. For it alone will surely come.  What You believe in and do rely on has become Your god.

3 All things but death are seen to be unsure, too quickly lost however hard to gain, uncertain in their outcome, apt to fail the hopes they once engendered and to leave the taste of dust and ashes in their wake in place of aspirations and of dreams.  And ‘death’ is so reliable.  Who could not count on it to finally end the pain of so-called ‘living’?  And standing behind its unholy relief is the promise of a brand-new dream!  Oh what frabuous joy!  Another opportunity to dream.

But death is counted on. For it will come with certain footsteps when the time has come for its arrival. It will never fail to take all life as hostage to itself.  Make no mistake, it is Your petty god, for You are surer of it than You are of God Our dear Father and Our Mother.

4 Would you bow down to idols such as this? – Yes, apparently! – Here is the strength and might of God Himself perceived within an idol made of dust. Here is the opposite of God – which is Life Itself – proclaimed as lord of all creation, stronger than God’s Will for life, the endlessness of love and Heaven’s perfect, changeless constancy. Here is the Will of Father and of Son defeated finally and laid to rest beneath the headstone death has placed upon the body of the holy Son of God.  Ringed about with rituals considered ‘sacred’.  Consider funerals in church.  The message that ‘matter’ is the arbiter of so-called ‘life’ because it can ‘die’.  What utter nonsense.  What bizarre beliefs; the Son of God has fallen in a spell, engendered by His love of willfulness.

5 Unholy in defeat, he has become what death would have him be. His epitaph, which death itself has written, gives no name to him, for he has passed to dust. It says but this: “Here lies a witness God is dead.” And this it writes again and still again, while all the while its worshippers agree, and kneeling down with foreheads to the ground, they whisper fearfully that it is so.  Can You deny this?  You know that You can’t.  Your minds are full of foolishness, again, engendered by Your selfish willfulness.   You have not yet been willing to improve Your mind enough to set free Your Brothers from these delusions.

Will You now commit to Join with Me, this time permanently?

6 It is impossible to worship death in any form and still select a few you would not cherish and would yet avoid while still believing in the rest. For death is total. Either all things die or else they live and cannot die. No compromise is possible. For here again we see an obvious position which we must accept if we be sane; what contradicts one thought entirely can not be true unless its opposite is proven false.  This is what I ask You to commit to: the understanding that Life is All there is for God is Love.  This understanding will abolish sickness, sin, and dying.  By ending nightmares, it ushers in the happy dream.  From there it is but one simple step to Heaven, Your Holy Freedom.

The Universe, dancing in joyous anticipation, does await Your happy, Holy Homecoming!

7 The idea of the death of God is so preposterous that even the insane have difficulty in believing it. For it implies that God was once alive and somehow perished, killed, apparently, by those who did not want him to survive. Their stronger will could triumph over His, and so eternal life gave way to death. And with the Father died the Son as well.  Such are the beliefs fixating on crucifixion rather than the Resurrection.  Hence the peculiar term ‘good’ Friday.  What’s ‘good’ about it?

Do You see how many things in the dream that You mindlessly accept as ‘givens’?

8 Death’s worshippers may be afraid. And yet can thoughts like these be fearful? If they saw that it is only this which they believed, they would be instantly released. And you will show them this today. There is no death, and we renounce it now in every form for their salvation and our own as well.  Ask Yourself this and notice Your own answer: does ‘dying’ promise You Your freedom?  Does it offer You an ‘out’ when this ‘life’ seems beyond bearing?  If so, this means that You have fallen prey to ego thinking.

Don’t get depressed!  The remedy is simple.  Just change Your mind.  You’re free to do that.

God made not death. Whatever form it takes must therefore be illusion. This the stand we take today. And it is given us to look past death and see the light beyond.  Say: ‘No thank You!’ to all thoughts of ‘dying’ and just walk on by.  And You will see the Light right here and now.

9 Our Father, – Giver of all Good – bless our eyes today. – Help Us be aware that We are so blessed – We are Your messengers, and we would look upon the glorious reflection of Your Love which shines in everything. – We long for eyes of Love to see as You. –We live and breathe in You alone. – You are Our breath and breathing.  As Paul said in the Bible, We live and move and have Our Be-ing1 not just in You, but as You.  Our Real Life is You. – We are not separate from Your eternal life. There is no death, for death is not Your Will. And we abide where You have placed us, in the Life we share with You and with all living things, to be like You and part of You forever. We accept Your Thoughts as ours, and our will is one with Yours eternally. Amen.  Dear God!  You have not just a little, but all My willingness!

[Thank you Dear Brother]

Love's Guidance

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.

Let me perceive forgiveness as it is.


What is forgiveness really, but the expression of a heart devoted to loving Your Brothers instead of hating them.  For to the ego mindset Others are enemy to number one.

Remember My dictum of 2000 years ago: Love God with all Your heart, mind, might, and soul, and Your Neighbour as Yourself.  It was ‘Greek’ to most of the Jews and ‘Greek’ to most of the Greeks.  (Yes, that was for Bill.)1

Yet for those who understood and followed it (mostly women), the earth turned into Heaven.  Their Light shined brightly as They regularly healed the sick and raised the dead.

1 Let us review the meaning of “forgive,” for it is apt to be distorted and to be perceived as something which entails an unfair sacrifice of righteous wrath, a gift unjustified and undeserved, and a complete denial of the truth. In such a view, forgiveness must be seen as mere eccentric folly, and this course appear to rest salvation on a whim.

For the ego understands not forgiveness.  Surely it is Greek to the ego.  Have You not heard those who feel themselves to be religious speak of ‘righteous anger’; an oxymoron if I ever heard one.  Forgiveness is most surely synonym to sacrifice.

To the ego sacrifice means give up something really wanted.  In this case, the pleasure and self-righteousness of grievance.

The Holy Spirit takes sacrifice quite literally, in its meaning of a sacred doing.  And so S/He sees forgiveness as a Holy Gift.  For what does True forgiveness give Your Brother, but His Innocence He thought that He’d lost forever.

Could there be a greater gift that Your Real Self that I am here giving back to You?

And to the ego, this is an outrageous price to have to pay for salvation.

2 This twisted view of what forgiveness means is easily corrected when you can accept the fact that pardon is not asked for what is true.

I feel You laughing as You think that forgiving is easy compared to the “it never happened” on which True forgiveness rests, as You forgive a Brother for some thing He never did.

It must be limited to what is false. It is irrelevant to everything except illusions.

Therefore, forgiveness is only needed for those things that never really happened!

Truth is God’s creation, and to pardon this is meaningless. All truth belongs to Him, reflects His laws and radiates His Love. Does this need pardon? How can you forgive the sinless and eternally benign?

What does this mean vis a vis Your erring Brother but that, God Be-ing Eternal Good, then so must be Your erring Brother.

3 The major difficulty that you find in genuine forgiveness on your part is that you still believe you must forgive the truth and not illusions. You conceive of pardon as a vain attempt to look past what is there; to overlook the truth in an unfounded effort to deceive yourself by making an illusion true. This twisted viewpoint but reflects the hold that the idea of sin retains as yet upon your mind as you regard yourself.

Clinging to the ‘reality’ of ‘sin’, You have imprisoned both Yourself and Your erring Brother. What is true of one Son must be, and is, true of every Other.

4 Because you think your sins are real, you look on pardon as deception. For it is impossible to think of sin as true and not believe forgiveness is a lie. Thus is forgiveness really but a sin, like all the rest. It says the truth is false and smiles on the corrupt as if they were as blameless as the grass; as white as snow. It is delusional in what it thinks it can accomplish. It would see as right the plainly wrong, the loathsome as the good.

Until You understand the Innocence of All the Universe, You cannot understand forgiveness.

5 Pardon is no escape in such a view. It merely is a further sign that sin is unforgivable, at best to be concealed,denied, or called another name, for pardon is a treachery to truth. Guilt can not be forgiven. If you sin, your guilt is everlasting. Those who are forgiven from the view their sins are real are pitifully mocked and twice condemned-first by themselves for what they think they did and once again by those who pardon them.

And worst of all, We’re still stuck in the dream.

6 It is sin’s unreality that makes forgiveness natural and wholly sane, a deep relief to those who offer it; a quiet blessing where it is received. It does not countenance illusions but collects them lightly with a little laugh and gently lays them at the feet of truth. And there they disappear entirely.

How can You see it this way?  By realizing that this is but a dream!  And dreams are not Reality but sleeping fantasy of an overactive ego imagination.

7 Forgiveness is the only thing that stands for truth in the illusions of the world. It sees their nothingness and looks right through the thousand forms in which they may appear. It looks on lies but it is not deceived. It does not heed the self-accusing shrieks of sinners mad with guilt. It looks on them with quiet eyes and merely says to them, “My brother, what you think is not the truth.”

This is but a dream.  This is but a dream.

8 The strength of pardon is its honesty, which is so uncorrupted that it sees illusions as illusions, not as truth. It is because of this that it becomes the undeceiver in the face of lies, the great restorer of the simple truth. By its ability to overlook what is not there, it opens up the way to truth, which had been blocked by dreams of guilt.

This is but a dream.

9 Now are you free to follow in the way your true forgiveness opens up to you. For if one brother has received this gift of you, the door is open to yourself. There is a very simple way to find the door to true forgiveness and perceive it open wide in welcome. When you feel that you are tempted to accuse someone of sin in any form, do not allow your mind to dwell on what you think he did, for this is self-deception. Ask instead, “Should I accuse myself of doing this?”

This question to Yourself is but another way to see the pain that is caused by unreality.  It is the basis of My ancient words: “Do unto Others …”

This is but a dream.

10 Thus will you see alternatives for choice in terms which render choosing meaningful and keep your mind as free of guilt and pain as God Himself intended it to be and as it is in truth. It is but lies which would condemn. In truth is innocence the only thing there is. Forgiveness stands between illusions and the truth, between the world you see and that which lies beyond, between the hell of guilt and Heaven’s gate.

There is that Holy word:Innocence, a Gift to give to All Our Holy Brothers.

11 Across this bridge, as powerful as Love Which laid Its blessing on it, are all dreams of evil and of hatred and attack brought silently to truth. They are not kept to swell and bluster and to terrify the foolish dreamer who believes in them. He has been gently wakened from his dream by understanding what he thought he saw was never there. And now he cannot feel that all escape has been denied to him.

This is but a dream.  Safety is found so easily when You will to Awaken.

12 He does not have to fight to save himself. He does not have to kill the dragons which he thought pursued him. Nor need he erect the heavy walls of stone and iron doors he thought would make him safe. He can remove the ponderous and useless armor made to chain his mind to fear and misery. His step is light, and as he lifts his foot to stride ahead, a star is left behind to point the way to those who follow him.

Hear His happy voice a-singing “merrily” THIS IS BUT A DREAM.  Row, row, row Your boat, joyfully up stream!

13 Forgiveness must be practiced, for the world cannot perceive its meaning nor provide a guide to teach you its beneficence. There is no thought in all the world which leads to any understanding of the laws it follows nor the Thought which it reflects. It is as alien to the world as is your own reality. And yet it joins your mind with the reality in you.

Hear Us sing to You: This is but a dream!

14Today we practice true forgiveness that the time of joining be no more delayed. For we would meet with our reality in freedom and in peace. Our practicing becomes the footsteps lightening up the way for all our brothers, who will follow us to the reality we share with them.

15 That this may be accomplished, let us give a quarter of an hour twice today and spend it with the Guide Who understands the meaning of forgiveness and was sent to us to teach it. Let us ask of Him:

16 Let me perceive forgiveness as it is.

Let this question rest with You as well.  Would You not freely give Love to a Brother?

What holds You back but insane grievances?  Oh yes, they are insane, for You are the Living Presence of God’s Love, here to bless.

17 Then choose one brother as He will direct, and catalogue his “sins,” as one by one they cross your mind. Be certain not to dwell on any one of them, but realize that you are using his “offenses” but to save the world from all ideas of sin. Briefly consider all the evil things you thought of him, and each time ask yourself “Would I condemn myself for doing this?”

Okay!  So You say You would and do, and this is true.  Yet do You not want to be forgiven? …  S/He too.

I rest My case, and I’m glad You’re smiling!  Your question is blessing many Others.  Thank You for asking.  You ALL might as well, for I know Your thoughts.  Why let them fester?  Bring them up and out so they may be healed.

18 Let him be freed from all the thoughts you had of sin in him. And now you are prepared for freedom. If you have been practicing thus far in willingness and honesty, you will begin to sense a lifting up, a lightening of weight across your chest, a deep and certain feeling of relief. The time remaining should be given to experiencing the escape from all the heavy chains you sought to lay upon your brother which were laid upon yourself.

Wake up from the dream!  You’re only dreaming.

Forgive Yourself, and forgive Your Brother.

19 Forgiveness should be practiced through the day, for there will be so many times when you forget its meaning and attack yourself. When this occurs, allow your mind to see through this illusion as you tell yourself:

20 Let me perceive forgiveness as it is.
Should I accuse myself of doing this?
I will not lay this chain upon myself.

Nor on Another.

21 In everything you do, remember this:

22 No one is crucified alone, and yet
No one can enter Heaven by himself.

What does this mean besides that this is a dream?  For as You think You go about Your day with endless lists of things You have to do, You are but sleeping now in Heaven, dreaming on through endless millennia.  It’s time to Waken.

LESSON ONE HUNDRED-SEVEN

Love's Guidance

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.

L e s s o n  107

Truth will correct the errors in my mind.

My long enslaved mind, starving for the Truth.

Indeed, it will, for that is what A Course In Miracles is about: The miracles that gladly bring to You Your freedom.

1 What can correct illusions but the truth?

And what is Truth but God, Our dear Father, and Our dear Mother.  All good qualities in One Source Divine.

And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered, errors disappear.

You have but fallen asleep and keep dreaming such strange dreams, far from Reality.  You had thought them real for so very long, and now You are learning that they aren’t.

They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because without belief they have no life, and so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.

You have thought You were a body that began from dust and ended thus.  Now You are learning that You are Mind – like God – You’re the Divine Consciousness.

2 Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel?

It would be the complete absence of fear.  Therefore, joyous peace.

Try to remember when there was a time-perhaps a minute, maybe even less-when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe.

Loved and safe You are!

Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity.

‘The end of time’ is not the end of You, but it is the end of dreaming.  For You will joyously step out of the dream into the glorious Goodness of forever.  Reality is superlative!

The stillness is never boring.  Boredom is found only within the dream.  Reality is vibrant!

Step willingly into the quiet Mind.

3 Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times and then be multiplied another hundred more. And now you have a hint, not more than just the faintest intimation of the state your mind will rest in when the truth has come.

Peace and happiness – found as the quiet mind – hold Life that is truly amazing.

4 Without illusions there could be no fear, no doubt, and no attack. – For illusion is the so-called ‘source’ of them.  They are unknown to Reality. – When truth has come, all pain is over, for there is no room for transitory thoughts and dead ideas to linger in your mind. – I know the dream seems so true to You, and yet it isn’t real.  Truth alone makes free. – Truth occupies your mind completely, liberating you from all beliefs in the ephemeral. They have no place because the truth has come, and they are nowhere. They cannot be found, for truth is everywhere forever now.

All the horror stories in the dream have vanished, for they never really were.  Where they seemed to be is now seen to be joyful Reality.

5 When truth has come, it does not stay a while to disappear or change to something else. It does not shift and alter in its form, nor come and go and go and come again. It stays exactly as it always was, to be depended on in every need and trusted with a perfect trust in all the seeming difficulties and the doubts that the appearances the world presents engender. They will merely flow away when truth corrects the errors in your mind.

While error has seemed to be persistent, the Truth is now found to be consistent.

6 When truth has come, it harbours in its wings the gift of perfect constancy and love which does not falter in the face of pain but looks beyond it, steadily and sure. 

For It does see Reality, not dreams.

Here is the gift of healing, for the truth needs no defense, and therefore no attack is possible. Illusions can be brought to truth to be corrected. But the truth stands far beyond illusions and cannot be brought to them to turn them into truth.

7 Truth does not come and go nor shift nor change, in this appearance now and then in that, evading capture and escaping grasp. It does not hide. It stands in open light, in obvious accessibility. It is impossible that anyone could seek it truly and would not succeed.

Again, Truth is consistent.  By Its consistency, all errors are corrected.

8 Today belongs to truth. Give truth its due, and it will give you yours. You were not meant to suffer and to die. Your Father wills these dreams be gone. Let truth correct them all. We do not ask for what we do not have. We merely ask for what belongs to us, that we may recognize it as our own.

Seek not to just know the Truth in any troubling situation, but to have Truth Itself revealed to You, so that You may know and experience It, not just Its healing power.

9 Today we practice on the happy note of certainty that has been born of truth. The shaky and unsteady footsteps of illusion is not our approach today. We are as certain of success as we are sure we live and hope and breathe and think. We do not doubt we walk with truth today and count on it to enter into all the exercises that we do this day.

For Truth is God is Be-ing You.  This is an intimate Relationship; one that is Holy.

10 Begin by asking Him Who goes with you upon this undertaking that He be in your awareness as you go with Him. You are not made of flesh and blood and bone but were created by the self-same Thought which gave the gift of life to Him as well. He is your Brother and so like to you your Father knows that you are both the same. It is your Self you ask to go with you, and how could He be absent where you are?

This Self – this Holy Spirit – is the sacred place where All the Universe is One.  It is Infinite with no boundaries nor limits in any direction.  And All of It is Good.

This is Your eternal Home, and Its other Name is Heaven.

11 Truth will correct all errors in your mind which tell you you could be apart from Him.

For apartness is the basis of the belief that separation was possible.  It wasn’t, and it isn’t, and it takes a lot of effort to pretend it does.  This effort is why You invented ‘aging’ and attributed it to God.  From there it was but one short step to ‘dying’ and then ‘birth’, none of which exist in Heaven, where Life is always fresh and new.

You speak to Him today and make your pledge to let His function be fulfilled through you. To share His function is to share His joy. His confidence is with you, as you say:

12 Truth will correct all errors in my mind,
And I will rest in Him Who is my Self.

A sweet reunion.

13 Then let Him lead you gently to the truth which will envelop you and give you peace so deep and tranquil that you will return to the familiar world reluctantly.

You thought You knew what happiness was before Heaven showed Its lovely face to You.

14 And yet you will be glad to look again upon this world. For you will bring with you the promise of the changes which the truth that goes with you will carry to the world. They will increase with every gift you give of five small minutes, and the errors that surround the world will be corrected as you let them be corrected in your mind.

For minds are joined, and, thus, Your correction becomes Every One’s.

15 Do not forget your function for today. Each time you tell yourself with confidence, “Truth will correct all errors in my mind,” you speak for all the world and Him Who would release the world as He would set you free.

All the Universe does gladly support Your willingness to be a part of the healing of the dream.

[Thank you Dear Brother]
