T11G9 "The world has no purpose, as it blends into the Purpose of God."
T11G9 "For the real world has slipped quietly into Heaven, where everything eternal in it has always been."
T11H1 "For there IS no situation to which miracles do not apply, and by applying them TO all situations, you will gain the REAL world."
T11H2 "Everyone in the world must play his part in the redemption of the world, to recognize that the world HAS BEEN redeemed."
T11H3 "What He enables you to do is clearly NOT of this world, for miracles violate every law of reality, as this world judges it."
T11H5 "Two ways of looking at the world are in your mind, and your perception will reflect the guidance you chose."
T11H7 "What you want IN YOURSELF you will make manifest by PROJECTION, and you will accept it FROM the world, because you put it there BY wanting it."
T11H8 "The mind then sees a divided world OUTSIDE ITSELF, but NOT within."
T11H8 "As long as you perceive the world as split, YOU are not healed."
T11H10 "The power of decision is your one remaining freedom as a prisoner of this world."
T11H12 "And you will see me as you look within, and we will look upon the world as God created it together."
T11H12 "Through the eyes of Christ, ONLY the real world exists, and can BE seen."
T11H16 "For you will have looked upon the deathless IN YOURSELF, and you will see only the eternal, as you look out upon a world that cannot die."
T11I1 "You ATTACK the real world every day and every hour and every minute, and yet you are surprised that you cannot SEE it."
T11I6 "You have made the INvisible the only truth that this world holds."
T11I8 "The UNreal world IS a thing of despair, for it can never be."
T11I9 "The real world was given you by God, in loving exchange for the world YOU made, and which you SEE."
T11J2 "The world you see is the delusional system of those made mad by guilt."
T11J2 "Look carefully at this world, and you will realize that this is so."
T11J2 "For this world is the symbol of punishment, and all the laws which seem to govern it are the laws of death."
T11J3 "If this were the real world, God WOULD be cruel."
T11J3 "Only the world of guilt could demand this, for only the guilty could CONCEIVE of it."
T11J4 "This world IS a picture of the crucifixion of God's Son."
T11J4 "And until you realize that God's Son CANNOT be crucified, this is the world you will see."
T11J6 "In this strange world which you have made, the Son of God HAS sinned."
T11J6 "By making HIM invisible, the world of retribution rose in the black cloud of guilt which you accepted, and you hold it dear."
T11J9 "Deny YOUR world, and judge him not."
T12C4 "For you could NOT control your joyous response to the call of love if you heard it, and the whole world you THINK you control WOULD vanish."
T12C5 "And by loving Him, WHICH YOU DO, you would throw this world away, WHICH YOU WOULD."
T12C6 "Therefore, you have used the world to COVER YOUR LOVE, and the deeper you go into the blackness of the ego's foundation, the CLOSER you come to the Love that is hidden beneath it."
T12D1 "You have been told that your function in this world is healing, and your function in Heaven is creating."
T12D8 "For NOW is the closest approximation of eternity that this world offers."
T12D10 "If you accept your function in the world of time AS HEALING, you will emphasize ONLY the aspect of time in which healing can occur."
T12E1 "They make up a PRIVATE world which CANNOT be shared."
T12E1 "In this world their maker moves alone, for only HE perceives them."
T12E2 "Each one peoples his world with figures from his INDIVIDUAL past, and it is because of this that private worlds DO differ."
T12E3 "It is THROUGH these strange and shadowy figures that the insane relate to their insane world."
T12E3 "Again and again have men attacked each other, because they saw IN THEM a shadow figure in their private world."
T12E4 "And so they SEPARATE into their private world, where everything is disordered, and where what is within, appears to be without."
T12E5 "You have but two emotions, yet in your private world, you react to each of them AS THOUGH IT WERE THE OTHER."
T12E5 "For love cannot abide in a world apart, where, when it comes, it is not recognized."
T12E5 "Your private world is filled with the figures of fear you have invited into it."
T12E6 "As you look with open eyes upon your world, it MUST occur to you that you have withdrawn into insanity."
T12E7 "It is GIVEN you to learn how to DENY insanity, and come forth from your private world in peace."
T12E8 "And we will draw them from their private world, for as we are united, so would we unite with them."
T12E9 "Yet in the darkness, in the private world of sleep, you SEE in dreams, although your eyes are closed."
T12E9 "Yet this is what denial DOES, for BY it you ACCEPT insanity, believing you can make a private world, AND RULE YOUR OWN PERCEPTION."
T12E10 "And He sees FOR you, as your witness to the real world."
T12E10 "He is the Holy Spirit'sMANIFESTATION, looking always on the real world, and calling forth its witnesses, and drawing them unto YOU."
T12E12 "And WITH this vision of the truth in THEM, came all the beauty of the world to shine upon them."
T12F11 "There is a light which this world cannot give."
T12F11 "And AS you give it, it shines forth to call you FROM the world, and follow it."
T12F11 "For this light will attract you as nothing in this world can do."
T12F11 "And you will lay aside the world and find another."
T12F11 "This other world is bright with love WHICH YOU HAVE GIVEN IT."
T12F11 "Light is unlimited, and spreads across this world in quiet joy."
T12F13 "Even in sleep has Christ protected you, ensuring the real world FOR you when you wake."
T12G1 "Sit quietly and look upon the world you see, and tell yourself, "The real world is not like this."
T12G1 "This world you see MUST BE DENIED, for sight of it is costing you a different kind of vision."
T12G2 "You do not really want the world you see, for it has disappointed you since time began."
T12G3 "This aching world has not the power to touch the living world at all."
T12G3 "You could not give it that, and so, although you turn in sadness from it, you cannot find in it the road that leads AWAY from it into another world."
T12G3 "Yet the REAL world HAS the power to touch you even here BECAUSE YOU LOVE IT."
T12G3 "LOVE ALWAYS ANSWERS, being unable to deny a call for help, or not to hear the cries of pain that rise to it, from every part of this strange world you made, but do not want."
T12G3 "The only effort you need make, to give this world away in glad exchange for what you did NOT make is willingness to learn THE ONE YOU MADE IS FALSE."
T12G4 "You HAVE been wrong about the world, because you have misjudged YOURSELF."
T12G4 "He lives within you in the quiet present, and waits for you to leave the past behind, and enter into the world He holds out to you in love."
T12G5 "No-one in this distracted world but has not seen some glimpses of the other world about him."
T12G5 "But while he still lays value on his own, he will DENY the vision of the other world, maintaining that he loves WHAT HE LOVES NOT, and following not the road that love points out."
T12G5 "To give this sad world over, and exchange your errors for the peace of God, is but YOUR will."
T12G6 "The world about him shines with love, because God placed him in Himself where pain is not, and love surrounds him without end or flaw."
T12G6 "He MUST deny the world of pain, the instant he perceives the arms of love around him."
T12G6 "And from this point of safety, he looks quietly about him, and recognizes that the world is one with him."
T12G7 "The real world is the way that leads you to remembrance of this one thing that is wholly true, and wholly YOURS."
T12G8 "In these lie your true perceptions, for the Holy Spirit corrects the world of dreams, where ALL perception is."
T12G8 "Love waits on welcome, NOT on time, and the real world is but your welcome of what always was."
T12G9 "In YOUR world you DO need things, because it is a world of scarcity in which you find yourself BECAUSE you are lacking."
T12G9 "But CAN you find yourself in such a world?"
T12G10 "For what YOU think you need will merely serve to tighten up your world AGAINST the light, and render you unwilling to question the value that this world can REALLY hold for you."
T12G12 "However holy his perception may become, no world OUTSIDE himself holds his inheritance."
T12G13 "Then follow Him in joy, with faith that He will lead you safely through all the dangers to your peace of mind that this world sets before you."
T12G14 "Salvation FROM the world lies ONLY here."
T12G14 "TAKE it of me, in glad exchange for all the world has offered but to TAKE AWAY."
T12G14 "And we will spread it, like a veil of light, across the world's sad face, in which we hide our brothers FROM the world, and it from them."
T13A1 "HE TEACHES THAT THE PAST DOES NOT EXIST, a fact which belongs to the sphere of knowledge, and which therefore NO-ONE IN THE WORLD KNOWS."
T13A1 "It would indeed be impossible to BE in the world with this knowledge."
T13B3 "Everyone seen WITHOUT the past thus brings you nearer to the end of time, by bringing healed and healing sight into the darkness, and ENABLING THE WORLD TO SEE."
T13B3 "For light must come into the darkened world, to make Christ's vision possible even here."
T13B7 "As miracles in this world join you to your brothers, so do your creations establish your fatherhood in Heaven."
T13B8 "But in this world, your perfection is unwitnessed."
T13C3 "The world can give you ONLY what you gave it, for being nothing but your own projection, it HAS no meaning apart from what you found in it, and placed your faith in."
T13C7 "And by projecting it, the WORLD seems dark, and shrouded in your guilt."
T13D7 "The Son of God believes that he is lost in guilt, alone in a dark world, where pain is pressing everywhere upon him, FROM WITHOUT."
T13E1 "There is a sense of peace so deep, that no dream in this world has ever brought even a dim imagining of what it is."
T13E2 "Nothing in this world can give this peace, for nothing in this world is wholly shared."
T13F1 "But in this world, you do not know it."
T13F3 "INDIRECT proof of truth is needed in a world made of denial, and without direction."
T13F3 "The logic of the world MUST therefore lead to nothing, for its GOAL is nothing."
T13F3 "This IS an insane world, and do not underestimate the actual extent of its insanity."
T13F4 "There is NOTHING in the world to teach him that the logic of the world is totally insane, and leads to nothing."
T13H14 "And you WILL feel guilty for this imagined "crime," which no one in this world, or Heaven, CAN POSSIBLY commit."
T14A2 "You cannot understand how much your Father loves you, for there is no parallel in your experience of the world to help you understand it."
T14B2 "Leave the world of death behind, and return quietly to Heaven."
T14B5 "We are all joined in the Atonement here, and nothing else can unite us in this world."
T14B5 "So will the world of separation slip away, and full communication be restored between the Father and the Son."
T14D9 "The single vision, which the Holy Spirit offers you, will bring this Oneness to your mind with clarity and brightness so intense, you could not wish, for all the world, not to accept what God would have you have."
T14E5 "In the world you, can become a spotless mirror, in which the holiness of your Creator shines forth from you, to all around you."
T14E6 "Could you but realize, for a single instant, the power of healing that the reflection of God, shining in YOU, can bring to all the world, you COULD not wait to make the mirror of your mind clean, to receive the image of the Holiness that heals the world."
T14F2 "Reflect the peace of Heaven HERE, and bring this world to Heaven."
T14F3 "In this world, it is NOT true that anything without order of difficulty can occur."
T14F3 "The miracle, therefore, has a unique function, and is motivated by a unique Teacher, Who brings the laws of another world to this one."
T14F4 "From the world's viewpoint, this is quite impossible."
T15C6 "But its shining and glittering brilliance, which will literally blind you to this world by its OWN vision, you can NOT supply."
T15D1 "Everything in this world is little, because it is a world made out of littleness, in the strange belief that littleness CAN content you."
T15D1 "When you strive for anything in the world, WITH THE BELIEF THAT IT WILL BRING YOU PEACE, you are belittling yourself, and blinding yourself to glory."
T15D4 "All your striving must be directed AGAINST LITTLENESS, for it DOES require vigilance to protect your magnitude in this world."
T15D4 "To hold your magnitude in perfect awareness, in a world of littleness, is a task the little cannot undertake."
T15D6 "The Holy Spirit can hold your magnitude, clean of ALL littleness, clearly and in perfect safety in your minds, untouched by every little gift the world of littleness would offer you."
T15D8 "In this season, which celebrates the birth of holiness into this world, join with me who decided for holiness for YOU."
T15D8 "Far beyond your little world, but still in you, He extends forever."
T15D11 "My Kingdom is not of this world, because it is in YOU."
T15E3 "I call you to fulfill your holy part in the plan that He has given to the world, for its release from littleness."
T15G3 "In the world of scarcity, love HAS no meaning, and peace is impossible."
T15G4 "The laws of this world cease to hold any meaning at all."
T15I1 "For a teaching assignment such as His, He must use EVERYTHING in this world for your release."
T15J1 "For in this world, the attraction of guilt DOES stand between them."
T15J1 "This is the season when you would celebrate my birth into this world."
T16E9 "Seek not for this in the bleak world of illusion, where nothing is certain, and where everything fails to satisfy."
T16F3 "For this world IS the opposite of Heaven, having been made to BE its opposite."
T16G4 "On this side of the bridge, you see the world of separate bodies, seeking to join each other in SEPARATE UNIONS, and to become one BY LOSING."
T16G6 "But fear it not, for it means nothing more than that you have been willing to LET GO your hold on the distorted frame of reference, that SEEMED to hold your world together."
T17C2 "It is the real world, bright, and clean and new, with everything sparkling under the open sun."
T17C2 "The bridge between that world and this is SO little and SO easy to cross that you could not believe it is the meeting-place of worlds so different."
T17C2 "Yet this little bridge is the strongest thing that touches on this world at all."
T17C3 "The real world, in its loveliness, YOU learn to reach."
T17C4 "The stars will disappear in light, and the sun, which opened up the world to beauty, will vanish."
T17C4 "The perception of the real world will be so short, that you will barely have time to thank God for it."
T17C4 "For God will take the last step swiftly, when you have reached the real world, and have been made ready for Him."
T17C5 "The real world is attained simply by the COMPLETE forgiveness of the old; the world you see WITHOUT forgiveness."
T17C5 "The Great Transformer of perception will undertake WITH you the careful searching of the mind that MADE this world, and uncover TO YOU the SEEMING reasons for your making it."
T17C6 "All this beauty will rise to bless your sight, as you look upon the world with forgiving eyes."
T17C6 "For forgiveness literally TRANSFORMS vision, and lets you see the real world, reaching quietly and gently across chaos, and removing all illusions that had twisted your perception, and fixed it on the past."
T17C6 "From the forgiven world, the Son of God is lifted easily to his home."
T17C7 "It will GIVE you the real world, trembling with readiness to BE given you."
T17C7 "Go out in gladness to meet with your Redeemer, and walk with Him, in trust, out of this world, and into the real world of beauty and forgiveness."
T17D12 "The spark of beauty, or the veil of ugliness; the real world, or the world of guilt and fear; truth or illusion; freedom or slavery, - it is all the same."
T17E2 "In this world, it is impossible to create."
T17E3 "You have VERY REAL relationships, even in this world, which you do not recognize, simply because you have raised their SUBSTITUTES to such predominance that, when truth calls to you, as it does constantly, YOU ANSWER WITH A SUBSTITUTE."
T17F1 "The holy relationship is the EXPRESSION of the holy instant, in living in this world."
T17F1 "The holy relationship, a MAJOR step toward the perception of the real world, is LEARNED."
T18B1 "Your whole world rests upon it."
T18B2 "It was so vast and so COMPLETELY incredible, that from it, a world of total unreality HAD to emerge."
T18B3 "The world arose to hide it, and became the screen on which it was projected, and drawn between you and truth."
T18B3 "Do you REALLY think it strange that a world in which EVERYTHING is backward and upside down, arose from this?"
T18B3 "For truth brought to THIS could only remain within in quiet, and take no part in all the mad projection by which this world was made."
T18B4 "It has NOT left you, to go out into the mad world and so DEPART FROM YOU."
T18B6 "In the mad world OUTSIDE you, nothing CAN be shared, but only SUBSTITUTED, and sharing and substituting have NOTHING in common in reality."
T18B10 "Return with me to Heaven, walking together out of this world, and through another to the loveliness and joy the other holds within it."
T18B11 "You have been called, together, to the most holy function that this world contains."
T18C1 "Does not a world that seems quite real arise in dreams?"
T18C1 "But think what this world is."
T18C1 "It is clearly NOT the world you saw BEFORE you slept."
T18C1 "Rather, it is a DISTORTION of the world, planned solely around what you would have PREFERRED."
T18C2 "Yet they ARE a way of LOOKING at the world, and CHANGING it TO SUIT THE EGO BETTER."
T18C3 "No limits on substitution are laid upon you; for a time, it seems as if the world were GIVEN you, to make it what you will."
T18C4 "For the dream of your ability to CONTROL reality by substituting a world that you prefer IS terrifying."
T18C5 "Dreams show you that you HAVE the power to make a world as you would have it, and that, BECAUSE you WANT it, you SEE it."
T18C5 "Yet here is a world, clearly WITHIN your mind, that SEEMS to be outside."
T18C6 "Your WISH to make another world that is NOT real, REMAINS with you."
T18C6 "And what you seem to WAKE to, is but another FORM of this same world you see in dreams."
T18C10 "It is not strange that dreams can make a world that is unreal."
T18C11 "In your relationship, the Holy Spirit has gently laid the real world; the world of happy dreams, from which awaking is so easy and so natural."
T18C11 "For, as your sleeping and your waking dreams represent the same wishes in YOUR mind, so do the real world and the truth of Heaven join in the Will of God."
T18D4 "In your relationship is this world's light."
T18I5 "Such is the strange position in which those in a world inhabited by bodies seem to be."
T18J3 "From the world of bodies, MADE by insanity, insane messages seem to be returned to the mind which made it."
T18J3 "And these messages bear witness to this world, pronouncing it as true."
T18J5 "The circle of fear lies just below the level the body sees, and SEEMS to be the whole foundation on which the world is based."
T18J5 "Here are all the illusions, all the twisted thoughts, all the insane attacks, the fury, vengeance, and betrayal that were made to keep the guilt in place, so that the world could RISE from it, and keep IT hidden."
T18J8 "Yet in this cloud bank it is easy to see a whole world rising."
T18J8 "Yet, however long you play it, and regardless of how much imagination you bring to it, you do NOT confuse it with the world below, nor seek to make it real."
T18J9 "For BENEATH them is a world of light, whereon they cast no shadows."
T18J9 "Their shadows lie upon the world BEYOND them, still FURTHER from the light."
T18J9 "This world of light, this circle of brightness, is the real world, where guilt meets with forgiveness."
T18J9 "Here, the world OUTSIDE is seen anew, WITHOUT the shadow of guilt upon it."
T18K1 "We need remember only that whoever attains the real world, beyond which learning cannot go, WILL go beyond it, but in a different way."
T18K3 "Your relationship has been uprooted from the world of shadows, and its unholy purpose has been safely brought through the barriers of guilt, washed with forgiveness, and set shining and firmly rooted in the world of light."
T18K4 "Forgiveness removes ONLY the UNtrue, lifting the shadows from the world, and carrying it, safe and sure within its gentleness, to the bright world of new and clean perception."
T19B11 "Faith is as easily exchanged for knowledge as is the real world."
T19C6 "It can indeed be said the ego MADE its world on sin."
T19C6 "Only in such a world COULD everything be upside down."
T19C6 "The solidness this world's foundation SEEMS to have is FOUND in this."
T19C6 "For sin HAS changed creation from an Idea of God to an IDEAL the EGO wants; a world IT rules, made up of bodies, mindless, and capable of COMPLETE corruption and decay."
T19D9 "For the belief that bodies LIMIT the mind leads to a perception of the world in which the PROOF of separation seems to be everywhere."
T19D14 "Others will seem to arise from elsewhere; from your brothers, and from various aspects of the world OUTSIDE."
T19E5 "For it will send its messengers from you to all the world."
T19E5 "To overcome the world is no more difficult than to surmount your little wall."
T19E8 "As you look upon the world, this little wish, uprooted and floating aimlessly, can land and settle briefly upon ANYTHING."
T19E9 "This feather of a wish, this tiny illusion, this microscopic remnant of the belief in sin, is all that remains of what once SEEMED to be the world."
T19F3 "Relationships in this world are the result of how the world is seen."
T19F5 "Send not these savage messengers into the world, to feast upon it, and to prey upon reality."
T19F6 "For THEY see the world as kind."
T19F7 "The world will be transformed before your sight, cleansed of all guilt, and softly brushed with beauty."
T19F7 "The world contains no fear that YOU laid not upon it."
T19G7 "And if I surmounted guilt and overcame the world, you were WITH me."
T19G8 "Send forth to all the world the joyous message of the end of guilt, and all the world will answer."
T19G9 "And IN Him, it IS possible that our communion, where we are ALREADY joined, will be the focus of the new perception that will bring light to all the world, contained in YOU."
T19J6 "Under the dusty edge of its distorted world."
T19K1 "For here, your world DOES end."
T19K7 "It seems to you the world will utterly abandon you, if you but raise your eyes."
T19K7 "Yet all that WILL occur is YOU will leave the world forever."
T19L14 "Here is the ONLY purpose that gives this world, and the long journey THROUGH this world, whatever meaning lies in them."
T20D3 "YOU make the world and THEN adjust to it."
T20D4 "A world of murder and attack, through which you thread your timid way through constant dangers, alone and frightened, hoping at most that death will wait a little longer, before it overtakes you, and you disappear."
T20D4 "All these are but the fearful thoughts of those who would adjust themselves to a world MADE fearful by their adjustments."
T20D5 "Have you wondered what the world is REALLY like?"
T20D5 "The world you see is but a judgment on YOURSELF."
T20D5 "Such is the world you see; a judgment on yourself, and made by YOU."
T20D5 "This sickly picture of yourself is carefully preserved by the ego, whose image it IS and which it loves, and placed OUTSIDE you, in the world."
T20D5 "And TO this world must YOU adjust, as long as you believe this picture IS outside, and has you at its mercy."
T20D6 "This world IS merciless, and, were it outside you, you SHOULD indeed be fearful."
T20D6 "The world the holy see is one with them, just as the world the ego looks upon is like itself."
T20D6 "The world the holy see is beautiful, because they see their innocence in it."
T20D7 "Take not the judgment of the world as answer to the question, "what am I?""
T20D7 "The world BELIEVES in sin, but the belief that made it as you see it, is NOT outside you."
T20D8 "The world you look on IS the answer that it gave you."
T20D8 "And YOU have given it power to ADJUST the world to MAKE its answer true."
T20E1 "For YOU give power as the laws of this world INTERPRET giving; as you give, you LOSE."
T20E1 "Nor to its results, as this world sees them; sickness and death and misery and pain."
T20E6 "In the world of separation, each is appointed separately, though they are all the same."
T20E6 "The ark of peace is entered two by two, yet the beginning of another world goes with them."
T20E6 "And, as this purpose is fulfilled, a new world rises, in which sin can enter not, and where the Son of God can enter WITHOUT fear."
T20E7 "For the whole new world rests in the hands of every two who enter here, to rest."
T20F1 "In this world, God's Son comes closest to himself in a holy relationship."
T20I8 "What if you recognized this world is a hallucination?"
T20I9 "This world SEEMS to hold out many purposes, each different, and with different values."
T20I10 "They are the means by which the OUTSIDE world, projected from within, ADJUSTS to sin, and SEEMS to witness to its reality."
T20I10 "ALL meaning that you give the world outside, must thus reflect the sight you saw WITHIN."
T21A1 "Projection makes perception; the world you see is what you GAVE it, nothing more than that."
T21A1 "Therefore, seek not to change the WORLD, but will to change your mind ABOUT the world."
T21A2 "And this you WILL project upon the world."
T21A2 "The world you see but shows you how much joy YOU have allowed yourself to see in you, and to accept as YOURS."
T21B1 "Never forget the world the sightless "see" MUST be imagined."
T21B2 "It is not necessary to IMAGINE what the world must look like."
T21B3 "The blind become ACCUSTOMED to their world by their adjustments TO it."
T21B4 "And so they keep the world they learned to "see" in their imagination, believing that their choice is that, or nothing."
T21B4 "They hate the world they learned through pain."
T21B6 "You COULD remember, yet you are afraid, believing you would lose the world you learned since then."
T21B6 "And yet you know that nothing in the world you learned is half so dear as this."
T21C4 "WITHHOLD it, and you keep the world as now you see it."
T21C4 "Here is the world you do NOT want, brought to the one you DO."
T21C4 "You must perceive that what is strong enough to MAKE a world, can let it go."
T21C5 "The world you see is but the idle witness that you were RIGHT."
T21C9 "The goal of sin induces the perception of a fearful world, to JUSTIFY its purpose."
T21C11 "It is as needful that you recognize you MADE the world you see, as that you recognize that you did NOT create yourself."
T21C11 "For, if you think the world you made has power to make you what IT wills, you ARE confusing Son and Father; effect and Source."
T21C12 "Your brother thinks he made the world with you."
T21C12 "With you, he thinks the world he made, made HIM."
T21D4 "Through them, the Holy Spirit leads you to the real world, and AWAY from all illusions where your faith was laid."
T21D8 "But first they chose to RECOGNIZE how much their faith had limited their understanding of the world, DESIRING to place its power elsewhere, should another point of view be GIVEN them."
T21D9 "For He Who LOVES the world is seeing it FOR you, without one spot of sin upon it, and in the innocence which makes the sight of it as beautiful as Heaven."
T21E6 "The song of freedom, which sings the praises of ANOTHER world, brings to it hope of peace."
T21F1 "Perception selects, and MAKES the world you see."
T21F3 "And you WILL think the world you made directs your destiny."
T21G2 "Who looks upon himself as guilty, and sees a sinless world?"
T21G2 "And who can see a sinful world, and look upon himself APART from it?"
T21H5 "Yes, it can overrun the world, and SEEK an enemy."
T21H6 "Yet first he must be WILLING to perceive a world where it is NOT."
T21H6 "But let him only ask himself these questions, which he MUST decide to have it done FOR him: "Do I DESIRE a world I rule, instead of one where I AM ruled?"
T21H6 "Do I DESIRE a world where I am powerful, instead of helpless?"
T21H6 "Do I DESIRE a world in which I have NO enemies, and CANNOT sin?"
T21H9 "And if you CHOOSE to see a world WITHOUT an enemy, in which you are NOT helpless, the MEANS to see it WILL be given you."
T21H10 "You can desire a world you rule, which rules you not, and CHANGE your mind."
T21H10 "And you can want to see a sinless world, and let an "enemy" tempt you to use the body's eyes, and CHANGE what you desire."
T21H11 "For each one asks if you are willing to exchange the world of sin for what the Holy Spirit sees."
T21H11 "For it IS this the world of sin denies."
T21H11 "And therefore those who look on sin ARE seeing the DENIAL of the real world."
T21H11 "Yet the last question adds the WISH FOR CONSTANCY in your desire to see the real world, so the desire becomes the ONLY one you have."
T22A3 "And so they wander through a world of strangers, UNLIKE themselves, living with their bodies perhaps beneath a common roof that shelters neither; in the same room and yet a world apart."
T22B2 "Reason would tell you that the world you see through eyes that are not yours, MUST make no sense to you."
T22B2 "Surely not you, whose sight is wholly INDEPENDENT of the eyes which look upon the world."
T22B4 "But, if your eyes are closed, and you have called upon this thing to lead you, asking it to EXPLAIN to you the world IT sees, you have no reason NOT to listen, nor to suspect that what it tells you is NOT true."
T22B4 "He does NOT lead you through a world of misery, waiting to tell you, at the journey's end, why He DID this to you."
T22B5 "Here is the ONE emotion that keeps you blind, dependent on the self you think you made, to lead you through the world it made for you."
T22C2 "All that is possible in the dark world of misery is to select some ASPECTS out of it, see them as DIFFERENT, and DEFINE the difference as joy."
T22C8 "You are no more a slave to time than to the world you made."
T22C12 "For, at its center, Christ has been reborn, to light His home with vision that overlooks the world."
T22D4 "For here is its OWN stability, its heavy anchor in the shifting world it made; the rock on which its church is built, and where its worshippers are bound to bodies, and believe the body's freedom is their own."
T22E5 "The love of Christ will light YOUR faces, and shine from them into a darkened world that NEEDS the light."
T22E7 "So shall you walk the world with me, whose message has not yet been given everyone."
T22E8 "Those who would let illusions be lifted from their minds are this world's Saviors, walking the world with their Redeemer, and carrying His message of hope and freedom and RELEASE from suffering to everyone who NEEDS a miracle to save him."
T22G8 "Through this releasing is the world released."
T22G10 "Each little gift you offer to the other lights up the world."
T22G11 "On your learning depends the welfare of the world."
T23A4 "Think what a happy world you walk, with truth beside you!"
T23A4 "Do not give up this world of freedom, for a little sigh of seeming sin, nor for a tiny stirring of guilt's attraction."
T23A5 "Who can walk trembling in a fearful world, and realize that Heaven's glory shines in him?"
T23A6 "In kind forgiveness will the world sparkle and shine, and everything you once thought sinful now will be re-interpreted as part of Heaven."
T23A6 "How beautiful it is to walk, clean and redeemed and happy, through a world in bitter need of the redemption that your innocence bestows upon it!"
T23B8 "Why would you fill your world with conflicts with yourself?"
T23C1 "Here are the laws that rule the world you made."
T23C10 "But, in a savage world, the kind cannot survive."
T23C14 "You who believe you walk in sanity, with feet on solid ground, and through a world where meaning CAN be found, consider this: These ARE the laws on which your "sanity" appears to rest."
T24B4 "On its behalf they fight against the universe, for nothing in the world they value more."
T24C6 "And all the world he made, and all his specialness, and all the sins he held in its defense AGAINST himself, will vanish as his mind accepts the truth about himself, as it returns to take their place."
T24D3 "It is not YOU that is so vulnerable and open to attack that just a word, a little whisper that you do not like, a circumstance that suits you not, or an event that you did not anticipate upsets your world, and hurls it into chaos."
T24D7 "The special ones are all asleep, surrounded by a world of loveliness they do not see."
T24E1 "Here is death enthroned as savior; crucifixion is now redemption, and salvation can ONLY mean destruction of the world, EXCEPT YOURSELF."
T24E6 "Only this is certain, in this shifting world which has NO meaning in reality: When peace is not with you ENTIRELY, and when you suffer pain of ANY kind, you have beheld some sin within your brother, AND HAVE REJOICED at what you thought was there."
T24G1 "Before your brother's holiness the world is still, and peace descends on it in gentleness and blessing so complete, that not one trace of conflict still remains to haunt you in the darkness of the night."
T24G3 "It is His Will you SHARE His love for you, and look upon yourself as lovingly as He conceived of you before the world began, and as He knows you still."
T24G3 "And it is this that saves YOU from a world that He created not."
T24G4 "Forget not that the healing of God's Son is all the world is for."
T24G4 "Until you see the healing of the Son as all you wish to be accomplished by the world, by time, and ALL appearances, you will NOT know the Father OR yourself."
T24G4 "For you will use the world for what is NOT its purpose, and will NOT escape its laws of violence and death."
T24G5 "Look on your brother, and behold in him the whole reversal of the laws that SEEM to rule this world."
T24G6 "Within your brother's holiness, the perfect frame for YOUR salvation and the world's, is set the shining memory of Him in Whom your brother lives, and you along with him."
T24H1 "How bitterly does everyone tied to this world defend the specialness he WANTS to be the truth!"
T25B3 "Perception is a choice of what you want YOURSELF to be; the world you WANT to live in, and the state in which you think your mind will be content and satisfied."
T25B5 "In this world, this is not understood, but CAN be taught."
T25C1 "Perhaps you fancy to attain some peace and satisfaction in the world as YOU perceive it."
T25C2 "Is it not strange that you should cherish still some hope of satisfaction from the world you see?"
T25C3 "Is it not ALSO true that you have found some hope APART from this; some glimmering, inconstant, wavering, yet dimly seen, that hopefulness IS warranted, on grounds that are NOT in this world?"
T25D1 "To the extent to which you value guilt, to that extent will you perceive a world in which attack is justified."
T25D1 "This is perception's form, adapted to this world, of God's more basic law; that Love creates Itself, and nothing BUT Itself."
T25D2 "God's laws do not obtain directly to a world perception rules, for such a world could not have been created by the Mind to which perception has no meaning."
T25D2 "NOT that the world where this reflection is, is real at all."
T25D3 "But this world has two who made it, and they do NOT see it as the same."
T25D4 "There is another Maker of the world, the simultaneous Corrector of the mad belief that ANYTHING could be established and maintained without some link that kept it still within the Laws of God."
T25D4 "There IS another purpose in the world that error made because it has another Maker, Who CAN reconcile its goal with His Creator's Purpose."
T25D5 "In His perception of the world, nothing is seen but justifies forgiveness and the sight of perfect sinlessness."
T25D5 "If it elects to see them elsewhere from their home, as if they lit a place where they could never be, AND YOU AGREE, then must the Maker of the world correct your error, lest you still remain in darkness, where the lamps are NOT."
T25D7 "Let ALL your brother's errors be to you nothing except a chance for YOU to see the workings of the Helper given YOU to see the world HE made, instead of yours."
T25D8 "This world has much to offer to your peace, and many chances to extend your own forgiveness."
T25D8 "The Maker of the world of gentleness has perfect power to offset the world of violence and hate that SEEMS to stand BETWEEN you and His gentleness."
T25D10 "Make, then, your choice, but recognize that, in this choice, the purpose of the world you see is chosen, and WILL be justified."
T25E3 "You makers of a world that is not so, take rest and comfort in another world where peace abides."
T25E3 "This world you bring with you to all the weary eyes and tired hearts that look on sin and beat its sad refrain."
T25E3 "From you can rise a world they will rejoice to look upon, and where their hearts are glad."
T25E3 "And in this widening world of light the darkness they THOUGHT was there is pushed away, until it is but distant shadows, far away, not long to be remembered, as the sun shines them to nothingness."
T25E5 "Those who offer peace to everyone have found a home in Heaven the world can NOT destroy."
T25E5 "For it is large enough to hold the world within its peace."
T25E6 "This can YOU bring to ALL the world, and ALL the thoughts that entered it, and were mistaken for a little while."
T25E6 "How better could your OWN mistakes be brought to truth than by your willingness to bring the light of Heaven with you, as you walk BEYOND the world of darkness into light?"
T25G1 "He can see no evil; nothing in the world to fear, and no-one who is different from himself."
T25G3 "Let him no more be lonely, for the lonely ones are those who see no function in the world for them to fill; no place where they are needed, and no aim which ONLY they can perfectly fulfill."
T25G4 "Nor is the plan complete until he finds his special function, and fulfills the part assigned to him, to make himself complete within a world where incompletion rules."
T25G5 "But, when it RESTS on all, it is complete, and every function of this world completed with it."
T25G6 "Salvation is no more than a reminder this world is NOT your home; its laws are NOT imposed on you, its values are NOT yours."
T25H1 "Sin is ONE thing in all this world that CANNOT change."
T25H1 "And ON its changelessness the world depends."
T25H1 "The magic of the world can SEEM to hide the pain of sin from sinners, and deceive with glitter and with guile."
T25H1 "For sin is a REQUEST for death, a wish to make this world's foundation sure as love, dependable as Heaven, and as strong as God Himself."
T25H1 "The world IS safe from love to everyone who thinks sin possible."
T25H2 "Nor CAN the basis of a world He did NOT make be firm and sure as Heaven."
T25H3 "It MUST be so that either God is mad, or is this world a place of madness."
T25H3 "Not ONE Thought of His makes ANY sense at all within this world."
T25H3 "And NOTHING that the world believes as true has ANY meaning in His Mind at all."
T25H4 "And if but ONE Thought of His is true, then ALL beliefs the world gives ANY meaning to are false, and make no sense at all."
T25H5 "To justify ONE value that the world upholds is to DENY your Father's sanity AND YOURS."
T25H5 "Who thinks the world is sane in any way; is justified in ANYTHING it thinks, or is maintained by ANY form of reason, believes this to be true."
T25H6 "This world is meaningless BECAUSE it rests on sin."
T25H6 "The Holy Spirit HAS the power to change the whole foundation of the world you see to something else; a basis NOT insane, on which a sane perception can be based, another world perceived."
T25H7 "Love is the basis for a world perceived as wholly mad to sinners, who believe theirs is the way to sanity."
T25H7 "Each sees a world immutable, as each defines the changeless and eternal truth of what YOU are."
T25H9 "BECAUSE He is not mad, has God appointed One as sane as He to raise a saner world to meet the sight of everyone who chose insanity as his salvation."
T25H9 "To this One is given the choice of form most suitable to him; one which will NOT attack the world he sees, but enter into it in quietness, and SHOW him it is mad."
T25H9 "This One but points to an ALTERNATIVE, ANOTHER way of looking at what he has seen before, and recognizes as the world in which he lives, and THOUGHT he understood before."
T25H10 "From this position does his sinfulness, and ALL the sin he sees within the world, offer him less and less."
T25H12 "For in this world it seems that one must gain BECAUSE another loses."
T25H12 "But what IS this belief, except a form of the more basic tenet, "Sin is real, and rules the world?""
T25I3 "There is a kind of justice in salvation of which the world knows nothing."
T25I3 "To the world, justice and VENGEANCE are the same, for sinners see justice ONLY as their punishment, perhaps sustained by someone ELSE, but NOT escaped."
T25I6 "Their world DEPENDS on sin's stability."
T25I6 "And they perceive the "threat" of what God KNOWS as justice to be more destructive to themselves and to their world than vengeance, which they understand and love."
T25I12 "Nor need you look to your experience WITHIN the world, which is but shadows of all that is REALLY happening within yourself."
T25I14 "The world deceives, but it can NOT replace God's justice with a version of its own."
T25J1 "For if you answer "yes," this means you will forego ALL values of this world, in favor of the peace of Heaven."
T25J4 "The world solves problems in another way."
T25J5 "NOT as it is seen through this world's eyes, but as God knows it, and as knowledge is reflected in sight the Holy Spirit gives."
T26A1 "Look at the world, and you will see nothing attached to ANYTHING beyond itself."
T26B1 "The world you see is based on SACRIFICE of oneness."
T26B3 "What witness to the wholeness of God's Son is seen within a world of separate bodies, however much he witnesses to truth?"
T26B3 "He is INVISIBLE in such a world."
T26B3 "Yet is it given him to make the world recede before his song and sight of him REPLACE the body's eyes."
T26B4 "Those who would see the witnesses to truth INSTEAD of to illusion merely ask that they might see a PURPOSE in the world that gives it sense and makes it meaningful."
T26B4 "WITHOUT your special function HAS this world no meaning for you."
T26B5 "And LET the world recede, and TAKE the rest his witness offers on behalf of peace."
T26B7 "God's justice rests in gentleness upon His Son, and keeps him safe from ALL injustices the world would lay upon him."
T26D2 "There is a borderland of thought that stands between this world and Heaven."
T26D3 "We have referred to it as the "real world.""
T26D4 "But what is truth to him must be brought to the last comparison that he will ever make; the last evaluation that will be possible, the final judgment upon this world."
T26D4 "But in this world there ARE no simple facts, because what is the same and what is different remain unclear."
T26D4 "In the real world, is choosing simplified."
T26D5 "There is no basis FOR choice in this complex and over-complicated world."
T26D5 "The real world is the area of choice made real, NOT in the outcome, but in the perception of alternatives FOR choice."
T26E1 "Forgiveness is this world's equivalent of Heaven's justice."
T26E1 "It translates the world of sin into a simple world, where justice can be reflected from BEYOND the gate behind which total lack of limits lies."
T26E1 "And what is charity WITHIN the world gives way to simple justice past the gate that opens into Heaven."
T26E2 "Forgiveness turns the world of sin into a world of glory, wonderful to see."
T26E3 "Who could fear love, and stand upon the ground where sin has left a place for Heaven's altar to rise and tower far above the world, and reach beyond the universe to touch the heart of ALL creation?"
T26E4 "Where sin once was perceived will rise a world which will become an altar to the truth."
T26F2 "It is but a little hindrance to eternity, quite meaningless to the real Teacher of the world."
T26F5 "Only in the past, - an ancient past, too short to make a world in answer to creation, - did this world APPEAR to rise."
T26F11 "The real world is the second part of the hallucination time and death are real, and have existence which can be perceived."
T26F12 "You HAVE gone on, and reached the world that lies at Heaven's gate."
T26F12 "Look gently on each other, and behold the world in which perception of your hate has been transformed into a world of Love."
T26G1 "Anything in this world that you believe is good and valuable and worth striving for can hurt you, and will do so."
T26G1 "And through its perceived reality has entered all the world of sick illusions."
T26G3 "He brings you gifts that are not of this world, and only he, to whom they have been given, CAN make sure that you receive them."
T26H2 "NOT in truth, but in the world of shadows and illusions BUILT on sin."
T26H2 "Yet has God given Answer to the world of sickness, Which applies to ALL its forms."
T26H3 "It is in this world, but NOT a part of it."
T26H6 "Then would God's Will be split in two, and all creation be subjected to the laws of two opposing powers, until God becomes impatient, splits the world apart, and relegates attack unto Himself."
T26H7 "Forgiveness is the only function here, and serves to bring the joy this world denies to every aspect of God's Son where sin was thought to rule."
T26H8 "We call it "wish" because it still conceives of other choices, and has not yet reached beyond the world of choice entirely."
T26H9 "A LITTLE sigh that speaks for Heaven as a preference to this world which death and desolation seem to rule."
T26H9 "In joyous answer will creation rise within you, to REPLACE the world you see with Heaven, wholly perfect and complete."
T26H10 "It is not understood APART from Him, and therefore has no meaning in this world."
T26H11 "And FROM this error does the world of sin and sacrifice arise."
T26H11 "This world is an attempt to prove your innocence, while cherishing attack."
T26H16 "Let us unite in bringing blessing to the world of sin and death."
T26J2 "What was a place of death has now become a living temple in a world of light."
T26J5 "What has been blocked is opened; what was held APART from light is given up that light may shine on it, and leave no space nor distance lingering between the light of Heaven and the world."
T26J6 "Your footprints lighten up the world, for where you walk forgiveness goes with you."
T26K5 "And TO this purpose nothing CAN be added, for the world is purposeless except for this."
T26K5 "To add or take away from this ONE goal is but to take away ALL purpose from the world, and from yourself."
T26K5 "And each unfairness that the world appears to lay upon you, you have laid on it, by rendering it purposeless, without the function that the Holy Spirit sees."
T26K6 "The world grows dim and threatening, and not a trace of all the happy sparkle that salvation brought can you perceive, to lighten up your way."
T26K6 "And so you see YOURSELF deprived of light, abandoned to the dark, unfairly left without a purpose in a futile world."
T26K6 "The world is fair because the Holy Spirit has brought injustice to the Light within, and there has ALL unfairness been resolved, and been REPLACED with justice and with love."
T27B5 "It is not Will for Life, but wish for death, that is the motivation for this world."
T27C6 "Thus does the miracle undo all things the world attests can never BE undone."
T27C6 "The ancient Calling of the Father to His Son, and of the Son unto his own, will yet be the last trumpet that the world will ever hear."
T27C8 "This is the "price" the Holy Spirit and the world interpret differently."
T27C8 "The world perceives in it a statement of the "fact" that your salvation SACRIFICES his."
T27D7 "Give welcome to the Power beyond forgiveness, and beyond the world of symbols and of limitations."
T27E3 "The world can ONLY ask a double question, with MANY answers, none of which will do."
T27E3 "All questions asked within this world are but a way of LOOKING, NOT a question asked."
T27E4 "The world asks but one question."
T27E4 "And which can bring escape from all the pain of which this world is made?""
T27E5 "Thus is all questioning within the world a form of propaganda for itself."
T27E5 "Just as the body's witnesses are but the senses from WITHIN itself, so are the answers to the questions of the world contained within the questions."
T27E6 "The questions of the world but ask of whom is sacrifice demanded, asking NOT if sacrifice is meaningful at all."
T27E7 "Therefore, attempt to solve NO problem in a world from which the answer has been barred."
T27E7 "Within the world, the answers merely raise ANOTHER question, though they leave the first unanswered."
T27F3 "From there, each one is born into this world, as witness to a state of mind which has TRANSCENDED conflict, and has reached to peace."
T27F4 "Be not afraid of blessing for the One Who blesses you loves all the world, and leaves nothing within the world that COULD be feared."
T27F4 "But if you SHRINK from blessing, will the world indeed seem fearful, for you have WITHHELD its peace and comfort, leaving it to die."
T27F4 "Would not a world so bitterly bereft be looked on as a condemnation by the one who COULD have saved it, but stepped back, because he was AFRAID of being healed?"
T27F5 "A dying world asks only that you rest an instant from attack upon YOURSELF, that it be healed."
T27F5 "Come to the holy instant and be healed, for nothing that is there received is left behind, on your returning to the world."
T27F5 "Life is given you, to give the dying world."
T27F5 "And what YOU see the world will witness, and will witness TO."
T27F6 "Thus is YOUR healing everything the world requires, that it may be healed."
T27F6 "And then, when YOU forget it, will the world remind you gently of what you have taught."
T27F6 "The world of accusation is replaced by one in which all eyes look lovingly upon the friend who brought them their release."
T27F7 "Problems are not specific, but they take specific forms, and these specific shapes make up the world."
T27G5 "Love, too, has symbols in a world of sin."
T27G6 "Yet to the One Who sends forth miracles to bless the world, a tiny stab of pain, a little worldly pleasure, and the throes of death itself are but a single sound; a call for healing, and a plaintive cry for help within a world of misery."
T27G7 "But there IS need that you be healed, because the suffering of the world has made it deaf to its salvation and deliverance."
T27G7 "The resurrection of the world awaits YOUR healing and YOUR happiness, that you may DEMONSTRATE the healing of the world."
T27H1 "Suffering is an emphasis upon all that the world has done to injure YOU."
T27H1 "Here is the world's demented version of salvation clearly shown."
T27H3 "The "reasoning" by which the world is made, on which it rests, by which it is maintained, is simply this: "YOU are the cause of what I do."
T27H3 "Yet it SEEMS sensible, because it LOOKS as if the world WERE hurting you."
T27H4 "The world's ESCAPE from condemnation is a need which those WITHIN the world are joined in sharing."
T27H4 "For each one thinks that, if he does his part, the condemnation of the world will rest on him."
T27H5 "This is the PURPOSE of the world he sees."
T27H5 "And, LOOKED AT thus, the world provides the means by which this purpose SEEMS to be fulfilled."
T27H5 "The part you play in SALVAGING the world from condemnation IS your own escape."
T27H6 "Forget not that the witness to the world of evil cannot speak EXCEPT for what has seen a NEED for evil in the world."
T27H6 "And it is THIS the world bears witness to."
T27H6 "And it is HERE you find the CAUSE of your perspective on the world."
T27H7 "Once you were unaware of what the cause of everything the world appeared to thrust upon you, uninvited and unasked, must REALLY be."
T27H8 "No-one can waken from a dream the world is dreaming FOR him."
T27H9 "So little is his worth that he is but a dancing shadow, leaping up and down, according to a senseless plot conceived within the idle dreaming of the world."
T27H10 "An honest choice could NEVER be perceived as one in which the choice is split between a tiny you and an enormous world, with DIFFERENT dreams about the truth in you."
T27H11 "The gap between reality and dreams lies not between the dreaming of the world and what you dream in secret."
T27H11 "The dreaming of the world is but a part of your own dream you gave away, and saw as if it were its start and ending, both."
T27H12 "And, UNDERNEATH this dream, is yet another, in which YOU become the murderer, the secret enemy, the scavenger and the destroyer of the brother and the world you fear alike."
T27H12 "YOU are the dreamer of the world of dreams."
T27I1 "The body is the central figure in the dreaming of the world."
T27I1 "It takes the central place in every dream, which tells the story of how it was made by OTHER bodies, born into the world OUTSIDE the body, lives a little while, and dies, to be united in the dust with other bodies, dying like itself."
T27I2 "The dreaming of the world takes many forms, because the body seeks in many ways to PROVE it is autonomous and real."
T27I2 "It puts things on itself that it has bought with little metal discs or paper strips the world proclaims as valuable and good."
T27I3 "The body's serial adventures, from the time of birth to dying is the theme of every dream the world has ever had."
T27I4 "How willing are you to ESCAPE effects of all the dreams the world has ever had?"
T27I5 "No-one asleep and dreaming in the world remembers his attack upon himself."
T27I5 "No-one believes there really was a time when he knew nothing of a body, and could never have conceived this world as real."
T27I7 "The world you see depicts EXACTLY what you thought YOU did."
T27I7 "The guilt for what YOU thought is being placed OUTSIDE yourself, and on a guilty world which dreams your dreams, and thinks your thoughts INSTEAD of you."
T27I8 "The world but demonstrates an ancient truth; - you WILL believe that others do to you EXACTLY what you think you did to them."
T27I13 "How differently will you perceive the world, when this is recognized!"
T27I13 "When you forgive the world YOUR guilt, YOU will be free of it."
T27I13 "And it is this that has maintained you SEPARATE from the world, and kept your brother SEPARATE from you."
T28A1 "This world was over long ago."
T28B2 "The limitations on remembering the world imposes on it are as vast as those you let the world impose on YOU."
T28B12 "ITS effects are changelessly eternal, BEYOND fear, and PAST the world of sin entirely."
T28C3 "A mind within a body, and a world of other bodies, each with SEPARATE minds, are your "creations," you the "other" mind, creating with effects UNLIKE yourself."
T28C6 "This world is CAUSELESS, as is every dream that anyone has dreamed within the world."
T28C10 "Now are you freed from this much of the dream; the world is neutral, and the bodies which still seem to move about as separate things NEED NOT BE FEARED."
T28C12 "This world is full of miracles."
T28C12 "Beginning here, salvation will proceed to change the course of every step in the descent to separation, until all the steps have been retraced, the ladder gone, and ALL the dreaming of the world undone."
T28D3 "The end of dreaming is the end of FEAR, and love was NEVER in the world of dreams."
T28D6 "Count, then, the silver miracles and golden dreams of happiness as all the treasures you would keep within the storehouse of the world."
T28D6 "What is the world except a little gap, perceived to tear eternity apart, and break it into days and months and years?"
T28D6 "And what are YOU who live within the world, except a picture of the Son of God in broken pieces, each concealed within a separate and uncertain bit of clay?"
T28D7 "Be not afraid, but let your world be lit with miracles."
T28D8 "This is a feast unlike indeed to those the dreaming of the world has shown."
T28F4 "Here is a world established that is sick, and this the world the body's eyes perceive."
T28F5 "They were made to look upon a world that is not there; to hear the voices that can make no sounds."
T28F5 "It is not THEY that hear and see, but YOU, who PUT TOGETHER every jagged piece, each senseless scrap and shred of evidence, and MAKE a witness to the world you want."
T28F7 "You who believe there is a little gap between you do not understand that it is HERE that you are kept as prisoners in a world perceived to be EXISTING here."
T28F7 "The world you see does not exist BECAUSE the place where you perceive it is not real."
T28H2 "Your Savior waits for healing, and the world waits with him."
T28H5 "This world is but the dream that you can BE alone, and think without affecting those apart from you."
T28H7 "The world will wash away, and yet this house will stand forever, for its strength lies NOT within itself alone."
T29C6 "Confusion follows on confusion here, for ON confusion has this world been based, and there is nothing else it rests upon."
T29D2 "He must see someone ELSE as NOT a body, one with him, without the wall the world has built to keep apart all living things who know not that they live."
T29F1 "There is a place in you where this whole world has been forgotten."
T29F2 "The changelessness of Heaven is in you, so deep within that nothing in this world but passes by, unnoticed and unseen."
T29F4 "They hold no sword, for they have left their hold on every vain illusion of the world."
T29F6 "And those who serve the lord of death have come to worship in a separated world, each with his tiny spear and rusted sword, to keep his ancient promises to die."
T29F7 "Yet nothing in the world of dreams remains without the hope of change and betterment, for here is NOT where changelessness is found."
T29F7 "Let us be glad indeed that this is so, and seek not the eternal in this world."
T29F7 "Forgiving dreams are means to step aside from dreaming of a world OUTSIDE yourself."
T29G5 "This world will bind your feet and tie your hands and kill your body, ONLY if you think that it was made to crucify God's Son."
T29G5 "Let THIS be changed, and nothing in the world but MUST be changed as well."
T29G5 "How lovely is the world whose purpose is forgiveness of God's Son!"
T29G5 "Nor CAN it be forgot, in such a world, it IS a little while 'til timelessness comes quietly to take the place of time."
T29H5 "All idols of this world were made to keep the truth within from being known to you, and to maintain allegiance to the dream that you must find what is OUTSIDE of you to be complete and happy."
T29H6 "Let us forget the purpose of the world the past has given it."
T29H6 "To change all this, and open up a road of hope and of release in what appeared to be an endless circle of despair, you need but to decide you do not KNOW the purpose of the world."
T29H7 "And speed the end of idols in the world made sad and sick by seeing idols there."
T29H8 "And all the world becomes the means by which this idol can be saved."
T29I2 "In some way you believe they will complete your little self, and let you walk in safety in a world perceived as dangerous, with forces massed against your confidence and peace of mind."
T29I2 "And thus must seek BEYOND his little self for strength to raise his head and stand apart from all the misery the world reflects."
T29I2 "This is the penalty for looking not within for certainty, and for a quiet calm which liberates you FROM the world, and lets you stand apart in quiet and in peace unlimited."
T29I4 "This world of idols IS a veil across the Face of Christ BECAUSE its purpose is to separate your brother from yourself."
T29I6 "Here the world of idols has been set by the idea this power and place and time are given form, and shape the world where the impossible has happened."
T29I8 "The world BELIEVES in idols."
T29J4 "They pretend they rule the world, and give their toys the power to move about, and talk and think and feel, and speak for them."
T29J5 "And so he makes of ANYTHING a toy, to make his world remain outside himself, and play that HE is but a part of it."
T29J6 "And bad things seem to happen, and he is afraid of all the chaos in a world he thinks is governed by the laws he made."
T29J6 "Yet is the real world unaffected by the world he thinks is real."
T29J7 "The real world still is but a dream."
T30B11 "They are made by you and your adviser, for yourself, AND FOR THE WORLD AS WELL."
T30B11 "The day you want you offer to the world, for it WILL be what you have asked for, and will reinforce the rule of your adviser through the world."
T30B11 "Whose kingdom is the world for you today?"
T30B12 "It needs but two who would have happiness this day to promise it to all the world."
T30B12 "Let this be the ONE reminder that you keep in mind, and you will have the day you want, and give it to the world by having it yourselves."
T30B12 "Your judgment has been LIFTED from the world by your decision for a happy day."
T30C3 "For thus was hatred born into the world, and thus the rule of fear established here."
T30C4 "What cause have you for anger in a world which merely waits YOUR blessing to be free?"
T30C5 "The world awaits the freedom you will give, when you have recognized that YOU are free."
T30C5 "But you will not forgive the world until you have forgiven Him Who GAVE your will to you."
T30C5 "For it is BY your will the world is given freedom."
T30C5 "God turns to YOU to ask the world be saved, for by your OWN salvation is it healed."
T30D9 "Completely unaffected by the turmoil and the terror of the world, the dreams of birth and death that here are dreamed, the myriad of forms that fear can take, quite undisturbed, the Thought God holds of you remains EXACTLY as It always was."
T30D9 "Here is your ONE reality kept safe, completely unaware of all the world that worships idols, and that knows not God."
T30D10 "Is your reality a thing APART from you, and in a world which your reality knows NOTHING of?"
T30E2 "Now must he learn the boxes and the bears did NOT deceive him, broke no rules, nor mean his world is made chaotic and unsafe."
T30F1 "The real world is the state of mind in which the ONLY purpose of the world is seen to be forgiveness."
T30F2 "The world becomes a place of hope, because its only purpose is to BE a place where hope of happiness can be fulfilled."
T30F2 "And no-one stands outside this hope, because the world has been united in belief the purpose of the world is one which all must SHARE, if hope be more than just a dream."
T30F4 "Even the real world has a purpose still beneath creation and eternity."
T30F4 "The real world still falls short of this, for this is God's Own Purpose; ONLY His, and yet completely shared and perfectly fulfilled."
T30F5 "The real world is a state in which the mind has learned how easily do idols go when they are still perceived, but wanted not."
T30F5 "Thus is the real world's purpose gently brought into awareness, to REPLACE the goal of sin and guilt."
T30F6 "When brothers join in purpose in the world of fear, they stand ALREADY at the edge of the real world."
T30F6 "How light and easy is the step across the narrow boundaries of the world of fear, when you have RECOGNIZED Whose hand you hold!"
T30F7 "An ancient hate is passing from the world, and with it goes ALL hatred and ALL fear."
T30G1 "Here is the real world given in exchange for dreams of terror."
T30G3 "This understanding is the ONLY change that lets the real world rise to take the place of dreams of terror."
T30G3 "The real world is achieved when you perceive the basis of FORGIVENESS is quite real and fully justified."
T30G3 "And this is all the world can ever give."
T30G4 "This is the false forgiveness which the world employs to KEEP the sense of sin alive."
T30G5 "There would be one mistake which had the power to UNDO creation, and to make a world which could REPLACE it and DESTROY the Will of God."
T30H1 "Would God have left the meaning of the world to YOUR interpretation?"
T30H1 "The Holy Spirit looks upon the world as with ONE purpose, changelessly established."
T30H4 "A common purpose is the ONLY means whereby perception can be stabilized, and ONE interpretation given to the world and all experiences here."
T30H4 "Escape from judgment simply lies in this; - All things have but one purpose, which you share with all the world."
T30H4 "And nothing IN the world can BE opposed to it, for it belongs TO everything, as it belongs to you."
T30H7 "It will shift in what it stands for, and you will believe the world is an uncertain place, in which you walk in danger and uncertainty."
T31A3 "There is no greater power in the world."
T31A3 "The world was MADE by it, and even now depends on nothing else."
T31A4 "You have continued, taking every step, however difficult, without complaint, until a world was built that suited you."
T31A4 "And every lesson that makes up the world arises from the first accomplishment of learning; an enormity so great the Holy Spirit's Voice seems small and still before its magnitude."
T31A4 "The world began with one strange lesson, powerful enough to render God forgotten, and His Son an alien to himself, in exile from the home where God Himself established him."
T31A5 "Yet you WILL learn them, for their learning is the ONLY purpose for your learning skill the Holy Spirit sees in all the world."
T31A7 "Each has its outcome in a different world."
T31A7 "And each world follows surely from its source."
T31A7 "The certain outcome of the lesson that God's Son is guilty is the world you see."
T31A7 "It IS a world of terror and despair."
T31A7 "And you WILL learn God's Son is innocent, and see ANOTHER world."
T31A8 "The outcome of the lesson that God's Son is guiltless is a world in which there is no fear, and everything is lit with hope, and sparkles with a gentle friendliness."
T31A8 "And you will understand it was THIS call that everyone and everything within the world has ALWAYS made."
T31A9 "The soft, eternal calling of each part of God's creation to the whole is heard throughout the world this second lesson brings."
T31A11 "And all the world will GIVE you joy and peace."
T31A11 "Its outcome is the world you look upon."
T31A12 "Let us remember not our own ideas of what the world is for."
T31C5 "Here are the thoughts of sacrifice preserved, for here guilt rules, and orders that the world be like itself; a place where nothing can find mercy, or survive the ravages of fear except in murder and in death."
T31D1 "There is a tendency to think the world can offer consolation and escape from problems that its purpose is to keep."
T31D2 "But the world has none to offer."
T31D2 "The world was made that problems could not BE escaped."
T31D3 "The roads this world can offer seem to be quite large in number, but the time must come when everyone begins to see how like they are to one another."
T31D3 "Men have died on seeing this, because they saw no way EXCEPT the pathways offered by the world."
T31D3 "It is true indeed there is no choice at all within the world."
T31D4 "Learn now, WITHOUT despair, there is no hope of answers in the world."
T31D4 "Seek not another signpost in the world which seems to point to still another road."
T31D5 "Who would be willing to be turned AWAY from all the roadways of the world, UNLESS he understood their real futility?"
T31D5 "The learning that the world can offer but ONE choice, no matter what its form may be, is the beginning of acceptance that there is a REAL alternative instead."
T31D5 "You did not come to learn to find a road the world does not contain."
T31D6 "The search for DIFFERENT pathways in the world is but the search for different FORMS of truth."
T31D7 "All choices in the world depend on this; - You choose BETWEEN your brother and yourself, and you will gain as much as he will lose, and what you lose is what is given him."
T31D8 "No pathway in the world can lead to Him, nor any worldly goal is one with His."
T31D8 "What road in all the world will lead within, when EVERY road was made to separate the journey and the purpose it MUST have, unless it be but futile wandering?"
T31E1 "The learning of the world is built upon a concept of the self adjusted to the world's reality."
T31E1 "For this an image is that suits a world of shadows and illusions."
T31E1 "The building of a concept of the self is what the learning of the world is FOR."
T31E1 "And by the time you reach "maturity," you have perfected it to meet the world on equal terms, at one with its demands."
T31E2 "The concept of the self the world would teach is not the thing that it appears to be."
T31E2 "It believes that it is good, within an evil world."
T31E2 "This aspect can grow angry, for the world is wicked, and unable to provide the love and shelter innocence deserves."
T31E2 "And so this face is often wet with tears, at the injustices the world accords to those who would be generous and good."
T31E3 "The face of innocence the concept of the self so proudly wears can tolerate attack in self-defense, for is it not a well-known fact the world deals harshly with defenseless innocence?"
T31E3 "But it is here the learning of the world has set its sights."
T31E3 "For it is here the world's reality is set, to see to it the idol lasts."
T31E4 "On this conception of the self the world smiles with approval, for it guarantees the pathways of the world are safely kept, and those who walk on them will not escape."
T31E6 "Concepts maintain the world."
T31E6 "But they can NOT be used to demonstrate the world is real."
T31E6 "For all of them are made WITHIN the world, born in its shadow, growing in its ways, and finally "maturing" in its thought."
T31E6 "They are ideas of idols painted with the brushes of the world, which cannot make a single picture representing truth."
T31E7 "Yet is all learning that the world directs begun and ended with the single aim of teaching you this concept of yourself, that you will choose to follow this world's laws, and never seek to go BEYOND its roads, nor realize the way you see yourself."
T31E8 "He must have made the world as well as you, to have such prescience in the things to come."
T31E9 "If the world be evil, there is still no need to hide what YOU are made of."
T31E10 "And what would happen to the world you know, if all its underpinnings were removed?"
T31E10 "Your concept of the world DEPENDS upon this concept of the self."
T31E13 "The concept of the self has always been the great preoccupation of the world."
T31E14 "To see a guilty world is but the sign your learning has been guided by the world, and you behold it as you see yourself."
T31E15 "There will be some confusion every time there is a shift, but be you thankful that the learning of the world is loosening its grasp upon your mind."
T31E15 "The world can teach no images of you unless you WANT to learn them."
T31E16 "There is no statement that the world is more afraid to hear than this: "I do not know the thing I am, and THEREFORE do not know what I am doing, where I am, or how to look upon the world and on myself.""
T31F1 "On this one choice does all your world depend, for here have you established what you are, as flesh or Spirit in your own belief."
T31F1 "But choose the Spirit, and all Heaven bends to touch your eyes, and bless your holy sight, that you may see the world of flesh no more, except to heal and comfort and to bless."
T31F2 "If you choose to see the body, you behold a world of separation, unrelated things, and happenings that make no sense at all."
T31F3 "For YOU can see the body WITHOUT help, but do not understand how to behold a world APART from it."
T31F3 "It is your world salvation will undo, and LET you see another world your eyes could never find."
T31F4 "The means are GIVEN you by which to see the world that will replace the one you made."
T31F5 "One vision, clearly seen, that does not fit the picture as it was perceived before, will change the world for eyes that learn to see BECAUSE THE CONCEPT OF THE SELF HAS CHANGED."
T31F5 "Then the world is harmless in your sight."
T31F5 "Then is the world forgiving, for you have forgiven it its trespasses."
T31F6 "So is all the world perceived as treacherous, and out to kill."
T31F6 "So the world is seen as stable, fully worthy of your trust; a happy place to rest in for a while, where nothing need be feared but only loved."
T31G1 "In this world's concepts are the guilty "bad;" the "good" are innocent."
T31G4 "And this will be your concept of YOURSELF, when you have reached the world beyond the sight your eyes alone can offer you to see."
T31G4 "And in His sight there IS another world."
T31G4 "You live in that world just as much as this, for BOTH are concepts of yourself, which can be interchanged, but never jointly held."
T31G6 "Would you not rather look upon yourself as NEEDED for salvation of the world, instead of as salvation's enemy?"
T31G15 "Let not the world's light, given unto you, be hidden from the world."
T31H1 "Would you BE this, if Christ appeared to you in all His glory, asking you but this, "Choose once again if you would take your place among the Saviors of the world, or would remain in hell, and hold your brothers there.""
T31H4 "The Saviors of the world, who see like Him, are merely those who chose His strength instead of their own weakness, seen APART from Him."
T31H4 "They will redeem the world, for they are joined to all the power of the Will of God."
T31H7 "Deny me not the little gift I ask, when in exchange I lay before your feet the peace of God, and power to bring this peace to everyone who wanders in the world, uncertain, lonely, and in constant fear."
T31H7 "There is no place for hell within a world whose loveliness can yet be so intense and so inclusive it is but a step from there to Heaven."
T31H7 "To your tired eyes I bring a vision of a different world, so new and clean and fresh you will forget the pain and sorrow that you saw before."
T31H8 "Let us be glad that we can walk the world, and find so many chances to perceive another situation where His gift can once again be recognized as ours."
T31H10 "Salvation's song will echo through the world with every choice they make."
W1IN13 "The purpose of these exercises is to train the mind to a different perception of everything in the world."
W11L1 "This is the first idea we have had which is related to a major phase of the correction process; the reversal of the thinking of the world."
W11L1 "It seems as if the world determines what you perceive."
W11L1 "Today's idea introduces the concept that your thoughts determine the world you see."
W12L1 "You think that what upsets you is a frightening world, or a sad world, or a violent world, or an insane world."
W12L1 "The world is meaningless in itself."
W12L3 "As you look about you, say to yourself: "I think I see a fearful world, a dangerous world, a hostile world, a sad world, a wicked world, a crazy world," and so on, using whatever descriptive terms happen to occur to you."
W12L3 "For example, you might think of "a good world," or "a satisfying world.""
W12L3 "You may not yet understand why these "nice" adjectives belong in these exercises, but remember that "a good world" implies a "bad" one, and "a satisfying world" implies an "unsatisfying" one."
W12L4 "At the end of the practice period, add: "But I am upset because I see a meaningless world.""
W12L5 "Why, then, should a meaningless world upset you?"
W12L5 "If you could accept the world as meaningless and let the truth be written upon it for you, it would make you indescribably happy."
W13L1 "Actually, a meaningless world is impossible."
W13L3 "If you are fearful, it is certain that you will endow the world with attributes which it does not possess, and crowd it with images that do not exist."
W13L4 "Then open your eyes and look about you slowly, saying: "I am looking at a meaningless world.""
W13L4 "Then close your eyes and conclude with: "A meaningless world engenders fear because I think I am in competition with God.""
W14L1 "The idea for today is, of course, the reason why a meaningless world is impossible."
W14L1 "The world you see has nothing to do with reality."
W14L3 "The idea for today is another step in learning to let go the thoughts which you have written on the world, and see the Word of God in their place."
W14L4 "With eyes closed, think of all the horrors in the world that cross your mind."
W14L6 "These things are part of the world you see."
W14L6 ""God did not create a meaningless world.""
W14L7 "Say: "God did not create a meaningless world."
W16L2 "What gives rise to the perception of a whole world can hardly be called idle."
W17L1 "This is not the way the world thinks, but you must learn that it is the way you think."
W20L1 "The salvation of the world depends on it."
W20L3 "Can the salvation of the world be a trivial purpose?"
W20L3 "And can the world be saved if you are not?"
W20L5 "Such is the real law of cause and effect as it operates in the world."
W22L1 "Today's idea accurately describes the way anyone who holds attack thoughts in his mind must see the world."
W22L1 "Having projected his anger onto the world, he sees vengeance about to strike at him."
W22L1 "Otherwise, thoughts of attack and counterattack will preoccupy him, and people his entire world."
W22L3 "Look at the world about you at least five times today, for at least a minute each time."
W22L3 "At the end of each practice period, ask yourself: "Is this the world I really want to see?""
W23L1 "Every thought you have makes up some segment of the world you see."
W23L1 "It is with your thoughts, then, that we must work, if your perception of the world is to be changed."
W23L2 "If the cause of the world you see is attack thoughts, you must learn that it is these thoughts which you do not want."
W23L2 "There is no point in lamenting the world."
W23L2 "There is no point in trying to change the world."
W23L2 "But there is indeed a point in changing your thoughts about the world."
W23L3 "The world you see is a vengeful world, and everything in it is a symbol of vengeance."
W23L4 "You see the world which you have made, but you do not see yourself as the image-maker."
W23L4 "You cannot be saved from the world, but you can escape from its cause."
W23L4 "This is what salvation means, for where is the world you see when its cause is gone?"
W23L5 "The idea for today introduces the thought that you are not trapped in the world you see, because its cause can be changed."
W23L6 "As each one crosses your mind, say: "I can escape from the world by giving up attack thoughts about ____.""
W23L7 "We are still at the stage of identifying the cause of the world you see."
W25L2 "You perceive the world and everything in it as meaningful in terms of ego goals."
W25L2 "When you believe this, you will try to withdraw the goals you have assigned to the world, instead of attempting to reinforce them."
W29L3 "When vision has shown you the holiness that lights up the world, you will understand today's idea perfectly."
W30L1 "From this idea will the world open up before you, and you will look upon it and see in it what you have never seen before."
W30L2 "Instead, we are trying to see in the world what is in our minds, and what we want to recognize is there."
W31L1 "Again, the idea should be applied to both the world you see without and the world you see within."
W31L2 "Then close your eyes and apply the same idea to your inner world."
W31L3 "As you survey your inner world, merely let whatever thoughts cross your mind come into your awareness, each to be considered for a moment and then replaced by the next."
W31L4 "And in your freedom lies the freedom of the world."
W32L1 "You are not the victim of the world you see because you invented it."
W32L2 "However, since you see them as different, the practice periods for today will again include two phases, one involving the world you see outside you, and the other the world you see in your mind."
W32L3 "Again we will begin the practice periods for the morning and evening by repeating the idea for today two or three times, while looking around at the world you see as outside yourself."
W32L3 "Then close your eyes, and look around your inner world."
W32L5 "The shorter applications consist of repeating the idea slowly, as you survey either your inner or outer world."
W33L1 "Today's idea is an attempt to recognize that you can shift your perception of the world in both its outer and inner aspects."
W33L2 "Merely glance casually around the world you perceive as outside yourself, then close your eyes and survey your inner thoughts with equal casualness."
W34L1 "It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises."
W34L2 "It is your inner world to which the applications of today's idea should be made."
W35L1 "It is difficult for anyone who thinks he is in this world to believe this of himself."
W35L1 "Yet the reason he thinks he is in this world is because he does not believe it."
W37L1 "This idea contains the first glimmerings of your true function in the world, or why you are here."
W37L1 "Your purpose is to see the world through your own holiness."
W37L1 "Thus are you and the world blessed together."
W37L2 "There is no other way in which the idea of sacrifice can be removed from the world's thinking."
W37L3 "Your holiness is the salvation of the world."
W37L3 "It lets you teach the world that it is one with you, not by preaching to it, not by telling it anything, but merely by your quiet recognition that in your holiness are all things blessed, along with you."
W37L5 "You may continue the practice period with your eyes closed; you may open your eyes again and apply the idea for today to your outer world if you so desire; you may alternate between applying it to what you see around you and to those who are in your thoughts; or you may use any combination of these two phases of application which you prefer."
W38L1 "Your holiness reverses all the laws of the world."
W39L3 "We have already said that your holiness is the salvation of the world."
W39L3 "Today's exercises will apply to you alone, recognizing that your salvation is crucial to the salvation of the world."
W39L3 "As you apply the exercises to your own world, the whole world stands to benefit."
W39L4 "Your holiness is the salvation of the world, and your own."
W41L2 "The separated ones have invented many "cures" for what they believe to be the "ills of the world.""
W41L3 "Deep within you is everything that is perfect, ready to radiate through you and out into the whole world."
W41L6 "Try, instead, to get a sense of turning inward, past all the idle thoughts of the world."
W41L7 "But most of all, try to sink down and inward, away from the world and all the foolish thoughts of the world."
W41L8 "In fact it is very easy, because it is the most natural thing in the world."
W41L8 "You might even say it is the only natural thing in the world."
W43L5 "Thoughts such as: "I see through the eyes of forgiveness," "I see the world as blessed," "The world can show me myself," "I see my own thoughts, which are like God's," or any thought related more or less directly to today's idea is suitable."
W44L4 "The form of exercise we will use today is the most natural and easy one in the world for the trained mind, just as it seems to be the most unnatural and difficult for the untrained mind."
W44L10 "Try to think of light, formless and without limit, as you pass by the thoughts of this world."
W44L10 "And do not forget that they cannot hold you to the world unless you give them the power to do so."
W45L4 "We will deny the world in favor of truth."
W45L4 "We will not let the thoughts of the world hold us back, and we will not let the beliefs of the world tell us that what God would have us do is impossible."
W46L1 "Forgiveness is the great need of this world, but that is because it is a world of illusions."
W49L1 "It is the other part of your mind that functions in the world and obeys the world's laws."
W49L4 "Sink deep into the peace that waits for you beyond the frantic, riotous thoughts and sounds and sights of this insane world."
W49L5 "And be sure that you sit quietly and repeat the idea for today slowly whenever you can, closing your eyes on the world, and realizing that you are inviting God's Voice to speak to you."
W50L1 "In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything but God."
W50L3 "It will lift you out of every trial, and raise you high above all the perceived dangers of this world into a climate of perfect peace and safety."
W52L2 "As I look about, I condemn the world I look upon."
W53L1 "11) "My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.""
W53L1 "Since the thoughts of which I am aware do not mean anything, the world which pictures them can have no meaning."
W53L1 "What is producing this world is insane, and so is what it produces."
W53L1 "I can therefore see a real world, if I look to my real thoughts as my guide for seeing."
W53L2 "12) "I am upset because I see a meaningless world.""
W53L2 "Insane thoughts are upsetting, and They produce a world in which there is no order anywhere."
W53L2 "Only chaos rules a world which represents chaotic thinking, and chaos has no laws."
W53L2 "I cannot live in peace in such a world."
W53L2 "I am grateful that this world is not real, and that I need not see it at all unless I choose to value it."
W53L3 "13) "A meaningless world engenders fear.""
W53L3 "But such a world is not real."
W53L3 "In choosing this, I will escape all the effects of the world of fear because I am acknowledging that it does not exist."
W53L4 "14) "God did not create a meaningless world.""
W53L4 "How can a meaningless world exist if God did not create it?"
W53L5 "The fact that I see a world in which there is suffering and loss and death shows me that I am seeing only the representation of my insane thoughts, and am not allowing my real thoughts to cast their beneficent light on what I see."
W54L1 "They will either make a false world or lead me to the real one."
W54L1 "As the world I see arises from my thinking errors, so will the real world rise before my eyes as I let my errors be corrected."
W54L2 "Let me look on the world as the representation of my own state of mind."
W54L2 "And so I also know that the world I see can change as well."
W54L3 "If I have no private thoughts, I cannot see a private world."
W54L3 "Even the mad idea of separation had to be shared before it could form the basis of the world I see."
W54L3 "And the world my real thoughts show me will dawn on their sight as well as mine."
W54L5 "I would look upon the witnesses that show me the thinking of the world has been changed."
W54L5 "I would look upon the real world, and let it teach me that my will and the Will of God are one."
W55L2 "The world I see is hardly the representation of loving thoughts."
W55L2 "My loving thoughts will save me from this perception of the world, and give me the peace God intended me to have."
W55L3 "23) "I can escape from the world by giving up attack thoughts.""
W55L3 "Without attack thoughts I could not see a world of attack."
W55L3 "As forgiveness allows love to return to my awareness I will see a world of peace and safety and Joy."
W55L4 "What I think are my best interests would merely bind me closer to the world of illusions."
W55L5 "It is this that I believe the world is for."
W55L5 "The purpose I have given the world has led to a frightening picture of it."
W56L1 "All my hopes and wishes and plans appear to be at the mercy of a world I cannot control."
W56L1 "I have tried to give my inheritance away in exchange for the world I see."
W56L2 "The world I see attests to the fearful nature of the self-image I have made."
W56L2 "And with this vision I will look upon the world and upon myself with charity and love."
W56L3 "The world I see holds my fearful self-image in place, and guarantees its continuance."
W56L3 "While I see the world as I see it now, truth cannot enter my awareness."
W56L3 "I would let the door behind this world be opened for me, that I may look past it to the world that reflects the Love of God."
W57L1 "31) "I am not the victim of the world I see.""
W57L1 "How can I be the victim of a world which can be completely undone if I so choose?"
W57L1 "Nothing holds me in this world."
W57L2 "32) "I have invented the world I see.""
W57L3 "33) "There is another way of looking at the world.""
W57L3 "Since the purpose of the world is not the one I ascribed to it, there must be another way of looking at it."
W57L3 "I see the world as a prison for God's Son."
W57L3 "It must be, then, that the world is really a place where he can be set free."
W57L3 "I would look upon the world as it is, and see it as a place where the Son of God finds his freedom."
W57L4 "When I see the world as a place of freedom, I will realize that it reflects the laws of God instead of the rules which I made up for it to obey."
W57L5 "As I share the peace of the world with my brothers, I begin to understand that this peace comes from deep within myself."
W57L5 "The world I look upon has taken on the light of my forgiveness, and shines forgiveness back at me."
W58L1 "From my holiness does the perception of the real world come."
W58L1 "Seen through understanding eyes the holiness of the world is all I see, for I can picture only the thoughts I hold about myself."
W58L2 "37) "My holiness blesses the world.""
W58L2 "As I recognize my holiness, so does the holiness of the world shine forth for everyone to see."
W58L4 "It is also recognizing the salvation of the world."
W58L4 "And because I am unafraid, everyone must share in my understanding, which is the gift of God to me and to the world."
W59L4 "Let me welcome vision and the happy world it will show me."
W60L3 "How safe the world will look to me when I can see it!"
W60L3 "What could there be to fear in a world which I have forgiven, and which has forgiven me?"
W60L5 "As I open my eyes, His Love lights up the world for me to see."
W60L5 "And as I look upon the world with the vision He has given me, I remember that I am His Son."
W61L1 "Who is the light of the world except God's Son?"
W61L2 "It is not humility to insist that you cannot be the light of the world, if that is the function God assigned to you."
W61L5 "They should begin with telling yourself: "I am the light of the world."
W61L7 "You are the light of the world."
W62L1 "It is your forgiveness that will bring the world of darkness to the light."
W62L1 "Forgiveness is the demonstration that you are the light of the world."
W62L2 "Illusions about yourself and the world are one."
W62L5 "As often as you can, closing your eyes if possible, say to yourself: "Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world."
W63L2 "You are indeed the light of the world with such a function."
W63L3 "And throughout the day, we will repeat this as often as we can: "The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness."
W63L3 "I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.""
W64L1 "The purpose of the world you see is to obscure your function of forgiveness, and provide you with a justification for forgetting it."
W64L2 "To the Holy Spirit, the world is a place where you learn to forgive yourself what you think of as your sins."
W64L3 "To review our last few lessons, your function here is to be the light of the world, a function given you by God."
W64L3 "The world's salvation awaits your forgiveness because through it does the Son of God escape from all illusions and thus from all temptation."
W64L7 "Related thoughts will come to help you, if you remember the crucial importance of your function to you and to the world."
W64L9 "At other times keep your eyes open after reviewing the thoughts and look slowly and unselectively about you, telling yourself: "This is the world it is my function to save.""
W65L2 "This is the only way in which you can take your rightful place among the Saviors of the world."
W67L1 "This is why you are the light of the world."
W67L1 "This is why God appointed you as the world's savior."
W68L6 "Spend the remainder of the practice period trying to think of yourself as completely at peace with everyone and everything, safe in a world which protects you and loves you, and which you love in return."
W69L1 "Because your grievances are hiding the light of the world in you, everyone stands in darkness, and you beside him."
W69L1 "He is your brother in the light of the world which saves you both."
W69L2 "We are literally attempting to get in touch with the salvation of the world."
W69L5 "After you have thought about the importance of what you are trying to do for yourself and the world, try to settle in perfect stillness, remembering only how much you want to reach the light in you today, - now."
W69L8 "In the shorter practice periods, which you will want to do as often as possible in view of the importance of today's idea to you and your happiness, remind yourself that your grievances are hiding the light of the world from your awareness."
W69L8 "Say, then: "My grievances hide the light of the world in me."
W69L8 "Yet I want to let it be revealed to me for my salvation and the salvation of the world.""
W69L8 " Also, be sure to tell yourself: "If I hold this grievance, the light of the world will be hidden from me," if you are tempted to hold anything against anyone today."
W70L9 "You are in charge of the salvation of the world."
W70L9 "Within me is the world's salvation and my own.""
W72L6 "This is the universal belief of the world you see."
W73L1 "Its wishes are not idle in the sense that they can make a world of illusions in which your belief can be very strong."
W73L2 "Idle wishes and grievances are partners or co-makers in picturing the world you see."
W73L3 "Can such a world have been created by the will the Son of God shares with his Father?"
W73L3 "Would God create a world that kills Himself?"
W73L4 "Today we will try once more to reach the world that is in accordance with your will."
W73L4 "Yet the light that shines upon this world reflects your will, and so it must be in you that we will look for it."
W73L5 "Your picture of the world can only mirror what is within."
W73L5 "Grievances darken your mind, and you look out on a darkened world."
W73L5 "Forgiveness lifts the darkness, reasserts your will, and lets you look upon a world of light."
W75L2 "It is a new era, in which a new world is born."
W75L2 "Today we see a different world because the light has come."
W75L2 "No shadows from the past remain to darken our sight and hide the world forgiveness offers us."
W75L3 "Today we will accept the new world as what we want to see."
W75L4 "Our longer practice periods will be devoted to looking at the world which our forgiveness shows us."
W75L4 "Today the real world rises before us in gladness, to be seen at last."

W75L8 "I have forgiven the world.""
W75L9 "Keep it in your awareness of yourself and see it everywhere today, as we celebrate the beginning of your vision, and the sight of the real world which has come to replace the unforgiven world you thought was real."
W76L11 "Hear Him Who tells you this, and realize how foolish are the laws you thought upheld the world you thought you saw."
W77L3 "You have been promised full release from the world you made."
W77L4 "Miracles do not obey the laws of this world."
W77L5 "You have asked for the salvation of the world and for your own."
W78L3 "So is the seeing of the world reversed, as we look out toward truth, away from fear."
W78L9 "The world and Heaven join in thanking you, for not one Thought of God but must rejoice as you are saved, and all the world with you."
W79L1 "This is the situation of the world."
W79L2 "Everyone in this world seems to have his own special problems."
W79L4 "The world seems to present you with a vast number of problems, each requiring a different answer."
W79L5 "No one could solve all the problems the world appears to hold."
W81L1 "61) "I am the light of the world.""
W81L3 "Some specific forms for applying the idea when specific difficulties seem to arise might be: "Let me not obscure the light of the world in me.""
W81L3 ""Let the light of the world shine through this appearance.""
W81L4 "62) "Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.""

W85L1 "69) "My grievances hide the light of the world in me.""
W85L3 ""The light of the world will shine all this away.""

W93L12 "You can do much for the world's salvation today."
W94L1 "The sounds of this world are still, the sights of this world disappear, and all the thoughts which this world ever held are wiped away forever by this one idea."
W94L3 "This is the Self Which never left Its home in God, to walk the world uncertainly."
W95L13 "You are One Self, complete and healed and whole, with power to lift the veil of darkness from the world, and let the light in you come through to teach the world the truth about itself."
W95L15 "We need your help, your little part in bringing happiness to all the world."
W95L16 "Your own acknowledgment you are One Self, united with your Father, is a call to all the world, to be at one with you."
W96L9 "These are your own real thoughts you have denied, and let your mind go wandering in a world of dreams, to find illusions in their place."
W97L6 "The Holy Spirit will be glad to take five minutes of each hour from your hands, and carry them around this aching world where pain and misery appear to rule."
W97L8 "Begin these happy exercises with the words the Holy Spirit speaks to you, and let them echo round the world through Him: "Spirit am I, a holy Son of God, Free of all limits, safe and healed and whole, Free to forgive, and free to save the world.""
W98L6 "Here is an offer guaranteeing you your full release from pain of every kind, and joy the world does not contain."

W100L3 "Without your smile the world cannot be saved."
W100L3 "While you are sad the light which God Himself appointed as the means to save the world is dim and lusterless."
W100L4 "Thus do you fail to show the world how great the happiness He wills for you."
W100L5 "If you are sad your part is unfulfilled, and all the world is thus deprived of joy, along with you."
W100L5 "God asks that you be happy, so the world can see how much He loves His Son, and wills no sorrow rises to abate his joy; no fear besets him to disturb his peace."
W100L7 "Now let us try to find that joy which proves to us and all the world God's Will for us."
W100L9 "And it is Him you answer every time you tell yourself you are essential to God's plan for the salvation of the world."
W104L3 "Then lay aside the conflicts of the world which offer other gifts and other goals made of illusions, witnessed to by them, and sought for only in a world of dreams."
W105L1 "They are not like to the gifts the world can give, in which the giver loses as he gives the gift; the taker is the richer by his loss."
W105L2 "This strange distortion of what giving means pervades all levels of the world you see."
W106L2 "Be not afraid today to circumvent the voices of the world."
W106L7 "Listen today, and you will hear a Voice Which will resound throughout the world through you."

W107L4 "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 which the appearances the world presents engender."
W107L9 "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."
W107L10 "And yet you will be glad to look again upon this world."
W107L10 "For you will bring with you the promise of the changes which the truth that goes with you will carry to the world."

W121L1 "Here is the key to meaning in a world which seems to make no sense."
W121L2 "The unforgiving mind is full of fear, and offers love no room to be itself; no place where it can spread its wings in peace, and soar above the turmoil of the world."
W121L4 "It looks upon the world with sightless eyes, and shrieks as it beholds its own projections rising to attack its miserable parody of life."
W121L5 "Yet it regards its judgment of the world as irreversible, and does not see it has condemned itself to this despair."
W122L1 "Do you want happiness, a quiet mind, a certainty of purpose, and a sense of worth and beauty that transcends the world?"
W122L3 "Forgiveness lets the veil be lifted up which hides the Face of Christ from those who look with unforgiving eyes upon the world."
W122L7 "All of the complexities the world has spun of fragile cobwebs disappear before the power and the majesty of this extremely simple statement of the truth."
W122L7 "It is the gift of God and not the world."
W122L7 "The world can give no gifts of any value to a mind which has received what God has given as its own."
W122L8 "Open your eyes today, and look upon a happy world of safety and of peace."
W122L12 "Before the light you will receive today the world will fade until it disappears, and you will see another world arise you have no words to picture."
W122L13 "Let not your gifts recede throughout the day, as you return again to meet a world of shifting change and bleak appearances."
W123L5 "An unheard message will not save the world, however mighty be the Voice that speaks, however loving may the message be."
W123L6 "Thanks be to you who heard, for you become the messengers who bring His Voice with you, and let it echo round and round the world."
W123L6 "And so they grow in power and in strength until they fill the world with gladness and with gratitude."
W123L7 "This holy half an hour given Him will be returned to you in terms of years for every second; power to save the world eons more quickly for your thanks to Him."

W124L7 "Today we would experience ourselves at one with Him, so that the world may share our recognition of reality."
W124L7 "In our experience the world is freed."
W125L1 "No peace is possible until His Word is heard around the world; until your mind, in quiet listening, accepts the message which the world must hear to usher in the quiet time of peace."
W125L2 "This world will change through you."
W125L3 "We stand apart from all the judgments which the world has laid upon the Son of God."
W125L3 "Today we will not listen to the world, but wait in silence for the Word of God."

W125L7 "Three times today, at times most suitable for silence, give ten minutes set apart from listening to the world, and choose instead a gentle listening to the Word of God."
W125L9 "You will need no rule but this to let your practicing today lift you above the thinking of the world, and free your vision from the body's eyes."
W126L1 "Today's idea, completely alien to the ego and the thinking of the world, is crucial to the thought reversal which this course will bring about."
W126L5 "Think you the Lord of Heaven would allow the world's salvation to depend on this?"
W126L8 "And if you only catch a tiny glimpse of the release which lies in the idea we practice for today, this is a day of glory for the world."
W126L10 "In silence close your eyes upon the world which does not understand forgiveness, and seek sanctuary in the quiet place where thoughts are changed and false beliefs laid by."
W127L5 "No laws the world obeys can help you grasp love's meaning."
W127L5 "What the world believes was made to hide love's meaning and to keep it dark and secret."
W127L5 "There is not one principle the world upholds but violates the truth of what love is, and what you are as well."
W127L5 "Seek not within the world to find your Self."
W127L7 "The world which seems to hold you prisoner can be escaped by anyone who does not hold it dear."
W127L10 "The world in infancy is newly born."
W127L10 "And we will watch it grow in strength and health to shed its blessing upon all who come to learn to cast aside the world they thought was made in hate to be love's enemy."
W128L1 "The world you see has nothing that you need to offer you; nothing that you can use in any way, nor anything at all that serves to give you joy."
W128L1 "No one but must accept this thought as true, if he would leave this world behind and soar beyond its petty scope and little ways."
W128L2 "Each thing you value here is but a chain that binds you to the world, and it will serve no other end but this."
W128L2 "The only purpose worthy of your mind this world contains is that you pass it by, without delaying to perceive some hope where there is none."
W128L2 "The world you see has nothing that you want."
W128L4 "Let nothing which relates to body thoughts delay your progress to salvation, nor permit temptation to believe the world has anything you want to hold you back."
W128L5 "Today we practice letting go all thought of values we have given to the world."
W128L5 "Thus do we lift the chains which bar the door to freedom from the world, and go beyond all little values and diminished goals."
W128L6 "Peace and be still a little while, and see how far you rise above the world when you release your mind from chains, and let it seek the level where it finds itself at home."
W128L7 "Your whole perspective on the world will shift by just a little every time you let your mind escape its chains."
W128L7 "The world is not where it belongs."
W128L7 "And you belong where it would be, and where it goes to rest when you release it from the world."
W128L8 "And when you think you see some value in an aspect or an image of the world, refuse to lay this chain upon your mind, and tell yourself with quiet certainty: "This will not tempt me to delay myself."
W128L8 "The world I see has nothing that I want.""
W129L1 "You cannot stop with the idea the world is worthless, for unless you see that there is something else to hope for you will only be depressed."
W129L1 "Our emphasis is not on giving up the world, but on exchanging it for what is far more satisfying, filled with joy, and capable of offering you peace."
W129L1 "Think you this world can offer that to you?"
W129L2 "It might be worth a little time to think once more about the value of this world."
W129L2 "The world you see is merciless indeed, unstable, cruel, unconcerned with you, quick to avenge and pitiless with hate."
W129L2 "This is the world of time, where all things end."
W129L3 "Is it a loss to find a world instead where losing is impossible?"
W129L5 "How far away from this are you who stay bound to this world."
W129L5 "And yet how near are you when you exchange it for the world you want."
W129L5 "Here can you but look forward, never back to see again the world you do not want."
W129L5 "Here is the world that comes to take its place as you unbind your mind from little things the world sets forth to keep you prisoner there."
W129L6 "This world holds nothing that you really want, but what you choose instead you want indeed!"
W129L7 "Begin with this: "Beyond this world there is a world I want."
W129L7 "I choose to see that world instead of this, For here is nothing that I really want.""
W129L7 "Then close your eyes upon the world you see, and in the silent darkness watch the lights that are not of this world light one by one until where one begins, another ends, loses all meaning as they blend in one."
W129L8 "Today the lights of Heaven bend to you, to shine upon your eyelids as you rest beyond the world of darkness."
W129L9 "Remember your decision hourly, and take a moment to confirm your choice by laying by whatever thoughts you have, and dwelling briefly only upon this: "The world I see has nothing that I want."
W129L9 "Beyond this world there is a world I want.""
W130L1 "No one can see a world his mind has not accorded value."
W130L2 "And who can choose to see a world of which he is afraid?"
W130L3 "What, then, can fear project upon the world?"
W130L4 "All separation, all distinctions, and the multitude of differences you believe make up the world."
W130L6 "The world you see is proof you have already made a choice as all-embracing as its opposite."
W130L8 "Begin your searching for the other world, by asking for a strength beyond your own, and recognize what it is you seek."
W130L8 "And you come to these five minutes emptying your hands of all the petty treasures of this world."
W130L8 "Let me accept the strength God offers me And see no value in this world, that I May find my freedom and deliverance.""
W131L3 "But the world can not dictate the goal for which you search unless you give it power to do so."
W131L3 "Otherwise, you still are free to choose a goal that lies beyond the world and every worldly thought, and one which comes to you from an idea relinquished yet remembered, old yet new; an echo of a heritage forgot, yet holding everything you really want."
W131L7 "Heaven remains your one alternative to this strange world you made and all its ways; its shifting patterns and uncertain goals, its painful pleasures and its tragic joys."
W131L10 "We will devote ten minutes to this goal three times today, and we will ask to see the rising of the real world to replace the foolish images that we held dear, with true ideas arising in the place of thoughts which have no meaning, no effect, and neither source nor substance in the truth."
W131L10 "Begin with this: "I ask to see a different world, and think A different kind of thoughts from those I made."
W131L10 "The world I seek I did not make alone, The thoughts I want to think are not my own.""
W131L11 "For several minutes watch your mind and see, although your eyes are closed, the senseless world you think is real."
W131L11 "Review the thoughts as well which are compatible with such a world, and which you think are true."
W131L13 "A tiny moment of surprise, perhaps, will make you pause before you realize the world you see before you in the light reflects the truth you knew, and did not quite forget in wandering away in dreams."
W131L14 "This is a day of gladness, for we come to the appointed time and place where you will find the goal of all your searching here and all the seeking of the world, which end together as you pass beyond the door."
W131L15 "Today is set by Heaven Itself to be a time of grace for you and for the world."
W132L1 "What keeps the world in chains but your beliefs?"
W132L1 "And what can save the world except your Self?"
W132L1 "A madman thinks the world he sees is real and does not doubt it."
W132L3 "Here in the present is the world set free."
W132L3 "For as you let the past be lifted and release the future from your ancient fears, you find escape and give it to the world."
W132L3 "You have enslaved the world with all your fears, with doubts and miseries, your pain and tears, and all your sorrows press upon it, and keep it a prisoner to your beliefs."
W132L4 "The world is nothing in itself."
W132L4 "Perhaps you think you did not make the world, but came unwillingly to what was made already, hardly waiting for your thoughts to give it meaning."
W132L4 "There is no world apart from what you wish, and herein lies your ultimate release."
W132L4 "Change but your mind on what you want to see, and all the world must change accordingly."
W132L5 "It is not pride that tells you that you made the world you see, and that it changes as you change your mind."
W132L5 "But it is pride that argues you have come into a world quite separate from yourself, impervious to what you think, and quite apart from what you chance to think it is."
W132L6 "But healing is the gift of those who are prepared to learn there is no world, and can accept the lesson now."
W132L7 "Others find it in experience that is not of this world, which shows them that the world does not exist because what they behold must be the truth, and yet it clearly contradicts the world."
W132L8 "Today's idea is true because the world does not exist."
W132L9 "How can a world of time and place exist if you remain as God created you?"
W132L10 "What is the lesson for today except another way of saying that to know your Self is the salvation of the world?"
W132L10 "To free the world from every kind of pain is but to change your mind about yourself."
W132L10 "There is no world apart from your ideas because ideas leave not their source, and you maintain the world within your mind in thought."
W132L11 "Are these inherent in the world you see?"
W132L11 "If you are real the world you see is false, for God's creation is unlike the world in every way."
W132L13 "There is no world because it is a thought apart from God, and made to separate the Father and the Son, and break away a part of God Himself and thus destroy His wholeness."
W132L13 "Can a world which comes from this idea be real?"
W132L13 "Deny you are a shadow briefly laid upon a dying world."
W132L13 "Release your mind, and you will look upon a world released."
W132L14 "Today our purpose is to free the world from all the idle thoughts we ever held about it, and about all living things we see upon it."
W132L14 "And we who are as He created us would loose the world this day from every one of our illusions, that we may be free."
W132L15 "Begin the fifteen minute periods in which we practice twice today with this: "I who remain as God created me Would loose the world from all I thought it was."
W132L15 "For I am real because the world is not, And I would know my own reality.""
W132L15 "Then merely rest, alert but with no strain, and let your mind in quietness be changed so that the world is freed along with you."
W132L16 "You need not realize that healing comes to many brothers far across the world as well as to the ones you see near by, as you send out these thoughts to bless the world."
W132L17 "Throughout the day, increase the freedom sent through your ideas to all the world, and say whenever you are tempted to deny the power of your simple change of mind: "I loose the world from all I thought it was, And choose my own reality instead.""
W133L2 "When you let your mind be drawn to bodily concerns, to things you buy, to eminence as valued by the world, you ask for sorrow, not for happiness."
W133L2 "It does not try to substitute utopian ideas for satisfactions which the world contains."
W133L2 "There are no satisfactions in the world."
W134L7 "Forgiveness is the only thing that stands for truth in the illusions of the world."
W134L10 "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."
W134L13 "Forgiveness must be practiced for the world cannot perceive its meaning, nor provide a guide to teach you its beneficence."
W134L13 "There is no thought in all the world which leads to any understanding of the laws it follows, nor the Thought which it reflects."
W134L13 "It is as alien to the world as is your own reality."
W134L16 "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."
W135L3 "The world is based on this insane belief."
W135L3 "For no one walks the world in armature but must have terror striking at his heart."
W135L21 "Your followers will join their light with yours, and it will be increased until the world is lighted up with joy."
W135L27 "And all the world will take this giant stride, and celebrate your Easter time with you."
W136L7 "It is a choice you make, a plan you lay when, for an instant, truth arises in your own deluded mind, and all your world appears to totter and prepare to fall."
W137L1 "For healing is the opposite of all the world's ideas which dwell on sickness and on separate states."
W137L2 "The world obeys the laws that sickness serves, but healing operates apart from them."
W137L5 "Just as the real world will arise to take the place of what has never been at all, healing offers restitution for imagined states and false ideas which dreams embroider into pictures of the truth."
W137L6 "For anti-Christ becomes more powerful than Christ to those who dream the world is real."
W137L7 "Just as forgiveness shines away all sin, and the real world will occupy the place of what you made, so healing must replace the fantasies of sickness which you hold before the simple truth."
W137L9 "Healing, forgiveness, and the glad exchange of all the world of sorrow for a world where sadness cannot enter, are the means by which the Holy Spirit urges you to follow Him."
W137L10 "Perhaps you will not recognize them all, nor realize how great your offering to all the world, when you let healing come to you."
W137L13 "We will remember, as the hour strikes, our function is to let our minds be healed that we may carry healing to the world, exchanging curse for blessing, pain for joy, and separation for the peace of God."
W137L14 "And I would share my healing with the world, That sickness may be banished from the mind Of God's One Son, Who is my only Self.""
W138L1 "In this world Heaven is a choice, because here we believe there are alternatives to choose between."
W138L2 "Yet what is true in God's creation cannot enter here, until it is reflected in some form the world can understand."
W138L6 "In this insanely complicated world Heaven appears to take the form of choice, rather than merely being what it is."
W139L6 "Yet it is the universal question of the world."
W139L6 "What does this prove except the world is mad?"
W139L6 "Nothing the world believes is true."
W139L12 "For several minutes let your mind be cleared of all the foolish cobwebs which the world would weave around the holy Son of God and learn the fragile nature of the chains which seem to keep the knowledge of yourself apart from your awareness, as you say: "I will accept Atonement for myself, For I remain as God created me.""
W140L1 "Cure is a word which cannot be applied to any remedy the world accepts as beneficial."
W140L1 "What the world perceives as therapeutic is but what will make the body "better.""
W140L3 "The happy dreams the Holy Spirit brings are different from the dreams of the world, where one can merely dream he is awake."
W140L7 "There is no remedy the world provides that can effect a change in anything."
W140R49 "Each day of practicing, as we review, we close as we began, repeating first the Thought that made the day a special time of blessing and of happiness for us; and through our faithfulness restored the world from darkness to the light, from grief to joy, from pain to peace, from sin to holiness."
W144L2 " 128) "The world I see has nothing that I want.""
W145L1 " 129) "Beyond this world there is a world I want.""
W146L2 " 132) "I loose the world from all I thought it was.""
W151L2 "You do not seem to doubt the world you see."
W151L3 "But how else do you judge the world you see?"
W151L10 "Let Him be Judge as well of everything that seems to happen to you in this world."
W151L12 "And you will see the love beyond the hate, the constancy in change, the pure in sin, and only Heaven's blessing on the world."
W151L13 "It stands beyond the body and the world, past every witness for unholiness, within the Holy, holy as Itself."
W151L17 "And so you lay the gift of snow-white lilies on the world, replacing witnesses to sin and death."
W151L17 "Through your transfiguration is the world redeemed and joyfully released from guilt."
W151L18 "As we give thanks, the world unites with us, and happily accepts our holy thoughts, which Heaven has corrected and made pure."
W151L18 "Now has our ministry begun at last, to carry 'round the world the joyous news that truth has no illusions, and the peace of God, through us, belongs to everyone."
W152L1 "Here is your world, complete in all details."
W152L6 "Is it not strange that you believe to think you made the world you see is arrogance?"
W152L6 "You but accuse Him of insanity to think He made a world where such things seem to have reality."
W152L6 "Yet only madness makes a world like this."
W153L1 "You who feel threatened by this changing world, its twists of fortune and its bitter jests, its brief relationships and all the "gifts" it merely lends to take away again, attend this lesson well."
W153L1 "The world provides no safety."
W153L2 "The world gives rise but to defensiveness."
W153L4 "The sense of threat the world encourages is so much deeper and so far beyond the frenzy and intensity of which you can conceive that you have no idea of all the devastation it has wrought."
W153L7 "What can save you now from your delusion of an angry god whose fearful image you believe you see at work in all the evils of the world?"
W153L8 "We will not play such childish games today, for our true purpose is to save the world, and we would not exchange for foolishness the endless joy our function offers us."
W153L9 "And in defenselessness we stand secure, serenely certain of our safety now, sure of salvation; sure we will fulfill our chosen purpose as our ministry extends its holy blessing through the world."
W153L11 "And while you fail to teach what you have learned salvation waits, and darkness holds the world in grim imprisonment."
W153L13 "You who have played that you are lost to hope, abandoned by your Father, left alone in terror in a fearful world made mad by sin and guilt, be happy now."
W153L14 "Let this day bring the last chapter closer to the world, that everyone may learn the tale he reads of terrifying destiny, defeat of all his hopes, his pitiful defense against a vengeance he can not escape, was but his own deluded fantasy."
W153L16 "At other times the business of the world will close on us, and we will be unable to withdraw a little while and turn our thoughts to God."
W153L18 "Nor would you keep your mind away from Him a moment, even though your time is spent in offering salvation to the world."
W153L18 "Think you He will not make this possible for you who chose to carry out His plan for the salvation of the world and yours?"
W154L4 "It is this joining, through the Voice of God, of Father and of Son, that sets apart salvation from the world."
W154L4 "It is this Voice which speaks of laws the world does not obey; Which promises salvation from all sin, with guilt abolished in the mind which God created sinless."
W154L6 "There is one major difference in the role of Heaven's messengers, which sets them off from those the world appoints."
W154L13 "The world recedes as we light up our minds, and realize these holy words are true."
W155L1 "There is a way of living in the world that is not here, although it seems to be."
W155L1 "And the ones who walk the world as you do recognize their own."
W155L2 "The world is an illusion."
W155L4 "If truth demanded they give up the world, it would appear to them as if it asked the sacrifice of something that is real."
W155L4 "Many have chosen to renounce the world while still believing its reality, and they have suffered from a sense of loss and have not been released accordingly."
W155L4 "Others have chosen nothing but the world, and they have suffered from a sense of loss still deeper, which they did not understand."
W155L13 "Your feet are safely set upon the road which leads the world to God."
W156L1 "How could you walk the world alone and separate from your Source?"
W156L2 "You cannot walk the world apart from God because you could not be without Him."
W156L4 "There is a Light in you Which cannot die, Whose Presence is so holy that the world is sanctified because of you."
W156L6 "As you step back, the Light in you steps forward and encompasses the world."
W156L8 "I light the world, I light my mind and all The minds which God created one with me.""
W157L4 "Nothing is needed but today's idea to light your mind, and let it rest in still anticipation and in quiet joy wherein you quickly leave the world behind."
W157L6 "Your body will be sanctified today, its only purpose being now to bring the vision of what you experience this day to light the world."
W157L6 "Yet it leaves a vision in our eyes which we can offer everyone, that he may come the sooner to the same experience in which the world is quietly forgot, and Heaven is remembered for a while."
W157L7 "As this experience increases and all goals but this become of little worth, the world to which you will return becomes a little closer to the end of time; a little more like Heaven in its ways; a little nearer its deliverance."
W158L2 "No one who walks the world but has received it."
W158L6 "Here is the joining of the world of doubt and shadows made with the intangible."
W158L6 "Here is a quiet place within the world made holy by forgiveness and by love."
W158L8 "It requires but the recognition that the world can not give anything that faintly can compare with this in value; nor set up a goal which does not merely disappear when this has been perceived."
W159L1 "Here the laws of Heaven and the world agree."
W159L1 "The world believes that to possess a thing it must be kept."
W159L3 "Christ's vision pictures Heaven, for it sees a world so like to Heaven that what God created perfect can be mirrored there."
W159L3 "The darkened glass the world presents can show but twisted images in broken parts."
W159L3 "The real world pictures Heaven's innocence."
W159L5 "Christ's vision is the bridge between the worlds, and in its power can you safely trust to carry you from this world into one made holy by forgiveness."
W159L7 "Here does the world remember what was lost when it was made."
W159L8 "They can be brought from here back to the world, but they can never grow in its unnourishing and shallow soil."
W159L9 "His lilies do not leave their home when they are carried back into the world."
W159L9 "They do not leave their source, but carry its beneficence with them, and turn the world into a garden like the one they came from, and to which they go again with added fragrance."
W159L10 "Christ has dreamed the dream of a forgiven world."
W160L2 "There is a stranger in our midst, who comes from an idea so foreign to the truth he speaks a different language, looks upon a world truth does not know, and understands what truth regards as senseless."
W160L9 "Today we offer thanks that Christ has come to search the world for what belongs to Him."
W161L1 "Here is Atonement made complete, the world passed safely by and Heaven now restored."
W161L2 "It sees instead but fragments of the whole, for only thus could it invent the partial world you see."
W162L1 "This single thought, held firmly in the mind, would save the world."
W162L1 "These words are sacred, for they are the words God gave in answer to the world you made."
W162L2 "They are the trumpet of awakening that sounds around the world."
W162L3 "He will save the world because he gives the world what he receives each time he practices the words of truth."
W162L4 "So wholly is it changed that it is now the treasury in which God places all His gifts and all His Love to be distributed to all the world, increased in giving; kept complete because its sharing is unlimited."
W162L5 "With this acceptance is salvation brought to everyone, for who could cherish sin when holiness like this has blessed the world?"
W162L6 "The light is come today to bless the world, for you have recognized the Son of God, and in your recognition is the world's."
W164L1 "He hears the sounds the senseless busy world engenders, yet He hears them faintly, for beyond them all He hears the song of Heaven and the Voice of God more clear, more meaningful, more near."
W164L2 "The world fades easily away before His sight."
W164L2 "A melody from far beyond the world increasingly is more and more distinct; an ancient Call to Which He gives an ancient answer."
W164L3 "How quiet is the time you give to spend with Him beyond the world."
W164L3 "On this day is grief laid by, for sights and sounds which come from nearer than the world are clear to you who will today accept the gifts He gives."
W164L4 "There is a silence into which the world can not intrude."
W164L5 "And in His judgment will a world unfold in perfect innocence before your eyes."
W164L6 "Brothers, this day is sacred to the world."
W164L6 "Your vision, given you from far beyond all things within the world looks back on them in a new light."
W164L6 "And what you see becomes the healing and salvation of the world."
W164L7 "We will receive but what is given us from Judgment made beyond the world."
W164L7 "We stand forgiven in the sight of Christ, with all the world forgiven in our own."
W164L7 "We bless the world as we behold it in the light in which our Savior looks on us, and offer it the freedom given us through His forgiving vision, now our own."
W164L8 "He has need of your most holy mind to save the world."
W164L8 "Is not Christ's vision worthy to be sought above the world's unsatisfying goals?"
W164L9 "We can change the world if you acknowledge them."
W164L9 "You may not see the value your acceptance gives the world."
W165L1 "What makes this world seem real except your own denial of the truth which lies beyond?"
W165L6 "For now you are among the Saviors of the world."
W166L2 "Here is the paradox that underlies the making of the world."
W166L2 "This world is not the Will of God, and so it is not real."
W166L2 "Impossible indeed; but every mind which looks upon the world and judges it as certain, solid, trustworthy and true believes in two creators; or in one, himself alone."
W166L3 "He must deny their presence, contradict the truth, and suffer to preserve the world he made."
W166L4 "Without the world he made is he an outcast, homeless and afraid."
W166L5 "Still he wanders on in misery and poverty, alone though God is with him, and a treasure his so great that everything the world contains is valueless before its magnitude."
W166L14 "You are entrusted with the world's release from pain."
W166L15 "And now you go to share it with the world."
W167L2 "In this world there appears to be a state that is life's opposite."
W168L4 "Request Him now to give the means by which this world will disappear, and vision first will come, with knowledge but an instant later."
W168L4 "For in grace you see a light that covers all the world in love, and watch fear disappear from every face as hearts rise up and claim the light as theirs."
W169L1 "It is the world's most lofty aspiration, for it leads beyond the world entirely."
W169L2 "Grace is acceptance of the Love of God within a world of seeming hate and fear."
W169L2 "By grace alone the hate and fear are gone, for grace presents a state so opposite to everything the world contains that those whose minds are lighted by the gift of grace can not believe the world of fear is real."
W169L6 "The world has never been at all."
W169L10 "There is no need to further clarify what no one in the world can understand."
W169L13 "What is the Face of Christ but his who went a moment into timelessness, and brought a clear reflection of the Unity he felt an instant back to bless the world?"
W169L15 "Our learning goal today does not exceed this prayer, yet in the world what could be more than what we ask this day of Him Who gives the grace we ask, as it was given Him?"
W170L11 "And you return to a new world unburdened by its weight; beheld not in its sightless eyes, but in the vision that your choice restored to you."
W170L13 "And we bless the world with what we have received from You alone."
W170R59 "For this alone I need; that you will hear the words I speak and give them to the world."
W170R59 "You are my voice, my eyes, my feet, my hands, through which I save the world."
W170R510 "We practice but an ancient truth we knew before illusion seemed to claim the world."
W170R510 "And we remind the world that it is free of all illusion every time we say, "God is but Love, and therefore so am I.""
W181L8 "And as our focus goes beyond mistakes, we will behold a wholly sinless world."
W181L8 "This will become the only thing we see reflected in the world and in ourselves."
W181L9 "The world which once proclaimed our sins becomes the proof that we are sinless."
W182L1 "Your Father's Name reminds you who you are, even within a world which does not know; even though you have not remembered it."
W182L3 "Repeat God's Name and all the world responds by laying down illusions."
W182L3 "Every dream the world holds dear has suddenly gone by, and where it seemed to stand you find a star; a miracle of grace."
W182L3 "The sorrowful cast off their mourning, and the tears of pain are dried as happy laughter comes to bless the world."
W182L7 "Think not He hears the little prayers of those who call on Him with names of idols cherished by the world."
W182L9 "You can escape all bondage of the world, and give the world the same release you found."
W182L9 "You can remember what the world forgot, and offer it your own remembering."
W183L1 "This world you seem to live in is not home to you."
W183L3 "We speak today for everyone who walks this world, for he is not at home."
W183L6 "He is so little that He seems so easily shut out, His tiny Voice so readily obscured, His calls for help almost unheard amid the grating sounds and harsh and rasping noises of the world."
W183L7 "For He would bring you back with Him, that He Himself might stay, and not return again where He does not belong and where He lives an outcast in a world of alien thoughts."
W183L8 "When you are still an instant, when the world recedes from you, when valueless ideas cease to have value in your restless mind, then will you hear His Voice."
W184L2 "This space you see as setting off all things from one another is the means by which the world's perception is achieved."
W184L3 "What are these names by which the world becomes a series of discrete events, of things ununified, of bodies kept apart and holding bits of mind as separate awarenesses?"
W184L6 "This is the sum of the inheritance the world bestows."
W184L6 "And everyone who learns to think that it is so accepts the signs and symbols which assert the world is real."
W184L7 "Such is the teaching of the world."
W184L7 "Learning which stops with what the world would teach stops short of meaning."
W184L7 "In its proper place, it serves but as a starting point from which another kind of learning can begin, a new perception can be gained, and all the arbitrary names the world bestows can be withdrawn as they are raised to doubt."
W184L8 "Think not you made the world."
W184L9 "It would indeed be strange if you were asked to go beyond all symbols of the world, forgetting them forever; yet were asked to take a teaching function."
W184L9 "You have need to use the symbols of the world a while."
W184L9 "They become but means by which you can communicate in ways the world can understand, but which you recognize is not the unity where true communication can be found."
W184L10 "Thus what you need are intervals each day in which the learning of the world becomes a transitory phase; a prison house from which you go into the sunlight and forget the darkness."
W184L10 "And then step back to darkness, not because you think it real, but only to proclaim its unreality in terms which still have meaning in the world which darkness rules."
W184L11 "Use all the little names and symbols which delineate the world of darkness."
W184L11 "Use all the names the world bestows on them but for convenience, yet do not forget they share the Name of God along with you."
W184L12 "The Name of God is the inheritance He gave to those who chose the teaching of the world to take the place of Heaven."
W185L2 "You have but to look upon the world you see around you to be sure how very few they are."
W185L2 "The world would be completely changed should any two agree these words express the only thing they want."
W186L7 "Salvation of the world depends on you, and not upon this little pile of dust."
W186L10 "The functions which the world esteems are so uncertain that they change ten times an hour at their most secure."
W186L13 "For Love must give, and what is given in His Name takes on the form most useful in a world of form."
W186L14 "Salvation of the world depends on you who can forgive."
W187L1 "It is the second phase on which the world and true perception differ."
W187L1 "Having had and given, then the world asserts that you have lost what you possessed."
W187L3 "If you are to save the world, you first accept salvation for yourself."
W187L5 "There is no giver and receiver in the sense the world conceives of them."
W187L11 "Now are we blessed, and now we bless the world."
W188L1 "Light is not of the world, yet you who bear the light in you are alien here as well."
W188L3 "The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world."
W188L4 "The shining in your mind reminds the world of what it has forgotten, and the world restores the memory to you as well."
W188L4 "And in His blessing does the light in you shine brighter, adding to the gifts you have to offer to the world."
W188L6 "Exclude the outer world, and let your thoughts fly to the peace within."
W188L9 "We will forgive them all, absolving all the world of what we thought it did to us."
W188L9 "For it is we who make the world as we would have it."
W189L1 "There is a light in you the world can not perceive."
W189L1 "And with its eyes you will not see this light, for you are blinded by the world."
W189L1 "To feel the Love of God within you is to see the world anew, shining in innocence, alive with hope, and blessed with perfect charity and love."
W189L2 "Who could feel fear in such a world as this?"
W189L3 "This is the world the Love of God reveals."
W189L3 "It is so different from the world you see through darkened eyes of malice and of fear that one belies the other."
W189L3 "A world in which forgiveness shines on everything and peace offers its gentle light to everyone is inconceivable to those who see a world of hatred, rising from attack, poised to avenge, to murder and destroy."
W189L4 "Yet is the world of hatred equally unseen and inconceivable to those who feel God's Love in them."
W189L4 "Their world reflects the quietness and peace that shines in them; the gentleness and innocence they see surrounding them; the joy with which they look out from the endless wells of joy within."
W189L5 "If hatred finds a place within your heart, you will perceive a fearful world, held cruelly in death's sharp-pointed, bony fingers."
W189L5 "If you feel the Love of God within you, you look out upon a world of mercy and of love."
W189L6 "For its simplicity avoids the snares the foolish convolutions of the world's apparent reasoning but serve to hide."
W189L7 "Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God."
W189L9 "Through every opened door His Love shines outward from Its home within, and lightens up the world in innocence."
W189L10 "And we ask but that Your Will, Which is our own as well, be done in us and in the world, that it becomes a part of Heaven now."
W190L5 "There is nothing in the world which has the power to make you ill or sad, or weak or frail."
W190L6 "My holy brothers, think of this awhile; the world you see does nothing."
W190L7 "The world may seem to cause you pain."
W190L7 "And yet the world, as causeless, has no power to cause."
W190L8 "And the world becomes a cruel and a bitter place, where sorrow rules and little joys give way before the onslaught of the savage pain that waits to end all joy in misery."
W190L11 "Let our gratitude unto our Teacher fill our hearts as we are free to choose our joy instead of pain, our holiness in place of sin, the peace of God instead of conflict, and the light of Heaven for the darkness of the world."
W191L1 "Here is your declaration of release from bondage of the world."
W191L1 "And here as well is all the world released."
W191L1 "You do not see what you have done by giving to the world the role of jailor to the Son of God."
W191L2 "What have you done that this should be your world?"
W191L5 "But let today's idea find a place among your thoughts, and you have risen far above the world and all the worldly thoughts that hold it prisoner."
W191L5 "And his salvation is the gift he gives to everyone in gratitude to Him Who pointed out the way to happiness that changed his whole perception of the world."
W191L6 "And with this holy thought you learn as well that you have freed the world."
W191L6 "You will not see a devastating image of yourself walking the world in terror, with the world twisting in agony because your fears have laid the mark of death upon its heart."
W191L8 "For time has lost its hold upon the world."
W191L8 "The Son of God has come in glory to redeem the lost, to save the helpless and to give the world the gift of his forgiveness."
W191L8 "Who could see the world as dark and sinful when God's Son has come again at last to set it free?"
W191L9 "You play the game of death, of being helpless, pitifully tied to dissolution in a world which shows no mercy to you."
W191L10 "Then let the Son of God awaken from his sleep, and opening his holy eyes return again to bless the world he made."
W191L10 "Your glory is the light that saves the world."
W191L10 "Look about the world and see the suffering there."
W191L11 "They cannot see the mercy of the world until you find it for yourself."
W191L11 "Remember this and all the world is free."
W192L1 "Yet what can such a function mean within a world of envy, hatred and attack?"
W192L2 "Therefore you have a function in the world in its own terms."
W192L3 "Creation cannot even be conceived of in the world."
W192L4 "Forgiveness gently looks upon all things unknown in Heaven, sees them disappear, and leaves the world a clean and unmarked slate on which the Word of God can now replace the senseless symbols written there before."
W192L8 "The bars which limit him become the world in which the jailor lives, along with him."
W193L5 "These are the words by which salvation comes to all the world."
W193L12 "Thus will you remain unbound, in peace eternal in the world of time."
W193L13 "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."
W194L2 "Accept today's idea, and you have released the world from all imprisonment by loosening the heavy chains that locked the door to freedom on it."
W194L2 "You are saved, and your salvation thus becomes the gift you give the world because you have received."
W194L4 "Yet in this world the temporal progression still seems real."
W194L5 "Then is each instant, which was slave to time, transformed into a holy instant when the light that was kept hidden in God's Son is freed to bless the world."
W194L5 "Now is he free, and all his glory shines upon a world made free with him, to share his holiness."
W194L6 "As it becomes a thought which rules your mind, a habit in your problem-solving repertoire, a way of quick reaction to temptation, you extend your learning to the world."
W194L6 "And as you learn to see salvation in all things, so will the world perceive that it is saved."
W194L7 "For he who has escaped all fear of future pain has found his way to present peace, and certainty of care the world can never threaten."
W194L8 "Think you the world could fail to gain thereby, and every living creature not respond with healed perception?"
W194L8 "Who entrusts himself to God has also placed the world within the Hands to which he has himself appealed for comfort and security."
W194L8 "He lays aside the sick illusions of the world along with his, and offers peace to both."
W194L9 "No longer is the world our enemy, for we have chosen that we be its friends."
W195L1 "Gratitude is a lesson hard to learn for those who look upon the world amiss."
W195L1 "Your gratitude is due to Him alone Who made all cause of sorrow disappear throughout the world."
W196L9 "If it can but be you you crucify, you did not hurt the world and need not fear its vengeance and pursuit."
W197L3 "The world must thank you when you offer it release from your illusions."
W198L7 "This world has many seeming separate haunts where mercy has no meaning, and attack appears as justified."
W198L10 "Accept the one illusion which proclaims there is no condemnation in God's Son, and Heaven is remembered instantly; the world forgotten, all its weird beliefs forgotten with it, as the Face of Christ appears unveiled at last in this one dream."
W198L11 "Now is there silence all around the world."
W199L5 "There is no thought that will not gain thereby in power to help the world, nor none which will not gain in added gifts to you as well."
W199L5 "We sound the call of freedom 'round the world with this idea."
W199L8 "Your brothers stand released with you in it; the world is blessed along with you, God's Son will weep no more, and Heaven offers thanks at the increase of joy your practice brings even to it."
W200L4 "This world is not where you belong."
W200L4 "But it is given you to find the means whereby the world no longer seems to be a prison house for you or anyone."
W200L5 "For you must change your mind about the purpose of the world, if you would find escape."
W200L5 "You will be bound 'til all the world is seen by you as blessed, and everyone made free of your mistakes and honored as he is."
W200L7 "There is no peace except the peace of God because He has one Son, who cannot make a world in opposition to God's Will and to his own, which is the same as His."
W200L7 "What could he hope to find in such a world?"
W200L7 "Or must he see that, as he looks on it, the world can but deceive?"
W200L8 "Peace is the bridge which everyone will cross to leave this world behind."
W200L8 "But it begins within the world perceived as different, and leading from this fresh perception to the gate of Heaven and the way beyond."
W200L9 "And that is all there is to what appears to be a world apart from God, where bodies have reality."
W200L11 "For we have found a simple, happy way to leave the world of ambiguity, and to replace our shifting goals and solitary dreams with single purpose and companionship."
W200R61 "Each would be enough to give release to you and to the world from every form of bondage, and invite the memory of God to come again."
W200R63 "And we repeat it every time the hour strikes, or we remember, in between, we have a function that transcends the world we see."
W200R67 "Let us offer Him the whole review we now begin, and let us also not forget to Whom it has been given, as we practice, day by day, advancing toward the goal He set for us; allowing Him to teach us how to go, and trusting Him completely for the way each practice period can best become a loving gift of freedom to the world."
W204L1 "God's Name reminds me that I am His Son, not slave to time, unbound by laws which rule the world of sick illusions, free in God, forever and forever one with Him."
W206L1 " 186) "Salvation of the world depends on me.""
W207L1 " 187) "I bless the world because I bless myself.""
W212L1 "I seek the function that would set me free from all the vain illusions of the world."
W220IN21 "The lessons which remain are merely introductions to the times in which we leave the world of pain, and go to enter into peace."
W220IN27 "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."
W220IN27 "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."
W224L1 "It lights the world as well."
W224L1 "It is the gift my Father gave me, and the one as well I give the world."
W224L2 "Remind me, Father, now, for I am weary of the world I see."
W226L1 "If I so choose, I can depart this world entirely."
W226L1 "It is not death which makes this possible, but it is change of mind about the purpose of the world."
W226L1 "But if I see no value in the world as I behold it, nothing that I want to keep as mine or search for as a goal, it will depart from me."
W230W23 "Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice."
W230W25 "From here we give salvation to the world, for it is here salvation was received."
W230W25 "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."
W237L1 "I will arise in glory, and allow the light in me to shine upon the world throughout the day."
W237L1 "I bring the world the tidings of salvation that I hear as God my Father speaks to me."
W237L1 "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."
W240L1 "It attests that you have seen yourself as you could never be, and therefore look upon a world which is impossible."
W240L1 "Not one thing in this world is true."
W240W31 "The world is false perception."
W240W31 "When the thought of separation has been changed to one of true forgiveness, will the world be seen in quite another light; and one which leads to truth, where all the world must disappear, and all its errors vanish."
W240W32 "The world was made as an attack on God."
W240W32 "Thus the world was meant to be a place where God could enter not, and where His Son could be apart from Him."
W240W33 "Their aim is to fulfill the purpose which the world was made to witness and make real."
W240W34 "Sounds become the call of God, and all perception can be given a new purpose by the One Whom God appointed Savior to the world."
W240W34 "Follow His light and see the world as He beholds it."
W240W35 "Let us not rest content until the world has joined our changed perception."
W240W35 "We must save the world."
W241L1 "For today holds out the instant to the darkened world where its release is set."
W241L1 "The glory of salvation dawns today upon a world set free."
W242L1 "I do not understand the world."
W245L2 "To all the world we give the message that we have received."
W249L1 "Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense."
W249L1 "The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving."
W252L1 "Its strength comes not from burning impulses which move the world, but from the boundless Love of God Himself."
W252L1 "How far beyond this world my Self must be, and yet how near to me and close to God."
W253L1 "Even in this world, it is I who rule my destiny."
W253L1 "For thus am I led past this world to my creations, children of my Will, in Heaven where my holy Self abides with them, and Him Who has created me."
W258L1 "Shall we continue to allow God's grace to shine in unawareness, while the toys and trinkets of the world are sought instead?"
W264L2 "Must we not join in what will save the world, along with us?"
W265L1 "I have indeed misunderstood the world, because I laid my "sins" on it, and saw them looking back at me."
W265L1 "And how deceived was I to think that what I feared was in the world, instead of in my mind alone."
W265L1 "Today I see the world in the celestial gentleness with which creation shines."
W265L1 "Let no appearance of my "sins" obscure the light of Heaven, shining on the world."
W265L2 " "In quiet would I look upon the world, which but reflects Your Thoughts and mine as well."
W266L2 "How can we lose the way to Him, when He has filled the world with those who point to Him, and given us the sight to look on them?"
W267L1 "Now my mind is healed, and all I need to save the world is given me."
W269L1 "Today I choose to see a world forgiven, in which everyone shows me the face of Christ, and teaches me that what I look upon belongs to me; that nothing is, except Your holy Son.""
W270L1 ""Father, Christ's vision is Your gift to me, and it has power to translate all that the body's eyes behold into the sight of a forgiven world."
W270L1 "The world forgiven signifies Your Son acknowledges his Father, lets his dreams be brought to truth, and waits expectantly the one remaining instant more of time, which ends forever as Your memory returns to him."
W270L2 "And through His sight we offer healing to the world through Him, the holy Son whom God created whole; the holy Son whom God created one."
W270W64 "For when forgiveness rests upon the world and peace has come to every Son of God, what could remain to keep things separate, for what remains to see except Christ's face?"
W271L1 "In Christ's sight, the world and God's creation meet, and as they come together all perception disappears."
W271L1 "His kindly sight redeems the world from death."
W275L2 "For Your Voice will tell me what to do, and where to go; to whom to speak, and what to say to him; what thoughts to think; what words to give the world."
W278L1 "If I accept that I am prisoner within a body, in a world in which all things that seem to live appear to die, then is my Father prisoner with me."
W278L1 "And this do I believe, when I maintain the laws the world obeys must I obey; the frailties and the sins which I perceive are real, and cannot be escaped."
W282L1 "If I could realize but this today, salvation would be reached for all the world."
W283L2 "And so we offer blessing to all things, uniting lovingly with all the world, which our forgiveness has made one with us."
W289L1 "Unless the past is over in my mind, the real world must escape my sight."
W289L1 "How can I then perceive the world forgiveness offers?"
W289L1 "This the past was made to hide, for this the world that can be looked on only now."
W289L2 "For You have offered me Your own replacement, in a present world the past has left untouched and free of sin."
W290W81 "The real world is a symbol, like the rest of what perception offers."
W290W81 "Your world is seen through eyes of fear, and brings the witnesses of terror to your mind."
W290W81 "The real world cannot be perceived except through eyes forgiveness blesses, so they see a world where terror is impossible, and witnesses to fear can not be found."
W290W82 "The real world holds a counterpart for each unhappy thought reflected in your world; a sure correction for the sights of fear and sounds of battle which your world contains."
W290W82 "The real world shows a world seen differently, through quiet eyes and with a mind at peace."
W290W83 "The world it sees arises from a mind at peace within itself."
W290W84 "The real world is the symbol that the dream of sin and guilt is over, and God's Son no longer sleeps."
W290W84 "The real world signifies the end of time, for its perception makes time purposeless."
W290W85 "And as we look upon a world forgiven, it is He Who calls to us and comes to take us home, reminding us of our Identity Which our forgiveness has restored to us."
W291L1 "His sight shows me all things forgiven and at peace, and offers this same vision to the world."
W291L1 "And I accept this vision in its name, both for myself and for the world as well."
W293L1 "Can the world seem bright and clear and safe and welcoming, with all my past mistakes oppressing it, and showing me distorted forms of pain?"
W293L1 "All the world shines in reflection of its holy light, and I perceive a world forgiven at last."
W293L2 ""Father, let not Your holy world escape my sight today."
W293L2 "Nor let my ears be deaf to all the hymns of gratitude the world is singing underneath the sounds of fear."
W293L2 "There is a real world which the present holds safe from all past mistakes."
W293L2 "And I would see only this world before my eyes today.""
W295L1 "Christ asks that He may use my eyes today, and thus redeem the world."
W295L1 "And as they are removed from me, the dreams that seemed to settle on the world are gone."
W295L1 "As I am saved, the world is saved with me."
W296L1 ""The Holy Spirit needs my voice today, that all the world may listen to Your Voice, and hear Your Word through me."
W296L1 "I would be Savior to the world I made."
W296L2 "How gladly does the Holy Spirit come to rescue us from hell, when we allow His teaching to persuade the world, through us, to seek and find the easy path to God!"
W297L1 "And I, who would be saved, would make it mine, to be the way I live within a world that needs salvation, and that will be saved as I accept Atonement for myself."
W300L2 ""We seek Your holy world today."
W300L2 "And we give thanks today the world endures but for an instant."
W300W92 "It is the all-inclusive nature of Christ's Second Coming that permits it to embrace the world, and hold you safe within its gentle advent which encompasses all living things with you."
W301L1 "Nor can I suffer pain, or feel I am abandoned and unneeded in the world."
W301L1 "Let me see Your world instead of mine."
W301L1 "Father, I will not judge Your world today.""
W301L2 "God's world is happy."
W301L2 "But we have learned the world we saw was false, and we will look upon God's world today."
W302L1 "Your holy world awaits us, as our sight is finally restored and we can see."
W302L1 "Let me forgive Your holy world today that I may look upon its holiness, and understand it but reflects my own.""
W304L1 "I can obscure my holy sight, if I intrude my world upon it."
W304L1 "I would bless the world by looking on it through the eyes of Christ."
W304L2 "Let me forgive, and thus receive salvation for the world."
W305L1 "Who uses but Christ's vision finds a peace so deep and quiet, undisturbable and wholly changeless, that the world contains no counterpart."
W305L1 "And all the world departs in silence, as this peace envelops it, and gently carries it to truth, no more to be the home of fear."
W305L1 "For Love has come, and healed the world by giving it Christ's peace."
W306L1 "What but Christ's vision would I use today, when it can offer me a day in which I see a world so like to Heaven that an ancient memory returns to me?"
W306L1 "Today I can forget the world I made."
W306L1 "Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God."
W308L1 "He has come to give His present blessing to the world, restoring it to timelessness and love."
W308L2 "This instant is the time You have appointed for Your Son's release, and for salvation of the world in him.""
W310L2 "We spend this day together, you and I, and all the world joins with us in our song of thankfulness and joy to Him Who gave salvation to us, and Who set us free."
W310W101 "At first you see a world which has accepted this as true, projected from a now corrected mind."
W310W102 "The final judgment on the world contains no condemnation."
W310W102 "For it sees the world as totally forgiven, without sin, and wholly purposeless."
W310W102 "And all the figures in the dream in which the world began go with it."
W310W103 "You who believed that God's Last Judgment would condemn the world to hell along with you, accept this holy truth: God's Judgment is the gift of the Correction He bestowed on all your errors, freeing you from them, and all effects they ever seemed to have."
W310W104 "And the world awaits your glad acceptance, which will set it free."
W312L1 "How surely, therefore, must the real world come to greet the holy sight of anyone who takes the Holy Spirit's purpose as his goal for seeing."
W312L2 ""I have no purpose for today except to look upon a liberated world, set free from all the judgments I have made."
W313L1 "The eyes of Christ look on a world forgiven."
W313L2 "We save the world when we are joined."
W314L1 "From new perception of the world there comes a future very different from the past."
W318L1 "In me, God's holy Son, are reconciled all parts of Heaven's plan to save the world."
W318L1 "I am the goal the world is searching for."
W319L2 "What aim but the salvation of the world could You have given me?"
W320L1 ""Your Will can do all things in me, and then extend to all the world as well through me."
W321L2 "Today we answer for the world, which will be freed along with us."
W321L2 "And how sure is all the world's salvation, when we learn our freedom can be found in God alone."
W323L1 "Such is the 'sacrifice' You ask of me, and one I gladly make; the only 'cost' of restoration of Your memory to me, for the salvation of the world.""
W325L1 "From insane wishes comes an insane world."
W325L1 "From judgment comes a world condemned."
W325L1 "And from forgiving thoughts a gentle world comes forth, with mercy for the holy Son of God, to offer him a kindly home where he can rest a while before he journeys on, and help his brothers walk ahead with him and find the way to Heaven and to God."
W331L1 "You could never leave me desolate, to die within a world of pain and cruelty."
W332L2 ""We would not bind the world again today."
W333L2 "No light but this can save the world."
W338L1 "It needs but this to let salvation come to all the world."
W340L1 "I was born into this world but to achieve this day, and what it holds in joy and freedom for Your holy Son, and for the world he made, which is released along with him today.""
W340W132 "And thus it illustrates the law of truth the world does not obey, because it fails entirely to understand its ways."
W340W133 "Each lily of forgiveness offers all the world the silent miracle of love."
W340W134 "And thus the miracle will justify your faith in it, and show it rested on a world more real than what you saw before; a world redeemed from what you thought you saw."
W340W135 "Miracles fall like drops of healing rain from Heaven on a dry and dusty world, where starved and thirsty creatures came to die."
W340W135 "Now the world is green."
W342L2 "And as we go, the world goes with us on the way to God."
W345L2 "The light has come, to offer miracles to bless the tired world."
W349L2 "And so we trust in Him to send us miracles to bless the world and heal our minds as we return to Him."
W350L1 "And only my forgiveness teaches me to let Your memory return to me, and give it to the world in thankfulness.""
W350W143 "We accept our part as Saviors of the world, which through our joint forgiveness is redeemed."
W350W144 "Ours are the eyes through which Christ's vision sees a world redeemed from every thought of sin."
W350W144 "Ours are the ears which hear the Voice of God proclaim the world as sinless."
W350W144 "Ours the minds which join together as we bless the world."
W351L1 "And if I see him sinful, I proclaim myself a sinner; not a Son of God; alone and friendless in a fearful world."
W359L1 ""Father, today we will forgive Your world, and let creation be Your own."
W359L1 "Sin is impossible, and on this fact forgiveness rests upon a certain base more solid than the shadow world we see."
W360L1 "Peace be to me, and peace to all the world."
W360FL1 "For we would not return again to the belief in sin, which made the world seem ugly and unsafe, attacking and destroying, dangerous in all its ways and treacherous beyond the hope of trust and the escape from pain."
W360FL3 "Unto us the aim is given to forgive the world."
W365EP3 "Henceforth, hear but the Voice for God and for your Self when you retire from the world, to seek reality instead."
M1A1 "The role of teaching and learning is actually reversed in the thinking of the world."
M1A4 "Everyone who follows the world's curriculum, and everyone here does follow it until he changes his mind, teaches solely to convince himself that he is what he is not."
M1A4 "Herein is the purpose of the world."
M1A5 "Except for God's teachers there would be no hope of salvation, for the world of sin would be forever real."
M1A5 "How can they work out their own salvation and the salvation of the world?"
M2A2 "They come from all over the world."
M2A2 "It calls for teachers to speak for it and redeem the world."
M2A2 "And each one saves a thousand years of time as the world judges it."
M2A3 "He has therefore found his own salvation and the salvation of the world."
M2A3 "In his rebirth is the world reborn."
M2A4 "Yet it is time alone that winds on wearily, and the world is very tired now."
M2A4 "But time, with its illusions of change and death, wears out the world and all things in it."
M3A3 "The world of time is the world of illusion."
M4A3 "In time, the teacher of God seems to begin to change his mind about the world with a single decision, and then learns more and more about the new direction as he teaches it."
M5A1 "They do not look alike to the body's eyes, they come from vastly different backgrounds, their experiences of the world vary greatly, and their superficial "personalities" are quite distinct."
M5B1 "The teachers of God have trust in the world, because they have learned it is not governed by the laws the world made up."
M5B1 "It is through this Power that the teachers of God look on a forgiven world."
M5B4 "It is only to the extent to which they are helpful that any degree of reality should be accorded them in this world of illusion."
M5C2 "They choose for all mankind; for all the world and all things in it; for the unchanging and unchangeable beyond appearances; and for the Son of God and his Creator."
M5H1 "To the world, generosity means "giving away" in the sense of "giving up.""
M5H1 "This has been emphasized throughout the text and the workbook, but it is perhaps more alien to the thinking of the world than many other ideas in our curriculum."
M5H1 "Its greater strangeness lies merely in the obviousness of its reversal of the world's thinking."
M5H1 "In the clearest way possible and at the simplest of levels, the word means the exact opposite to the teachers of God and to the world."
M5H2 "This does not refer, however, to the self the world speaks of."
M5I1 "The past as well held no mistakes; nothing that did not serve to benefit the world as well as him to whom it seemed to happen."
M5J1 "To give up all problems to one Answer is to reverse the thinking of the world entirely."
M5K2 "They have in truth abandoned the world, and let it be restored to them in newness and in joy so glorious they never could have conceived of such a change."
M5K3 "It is the function of God's teachers to bring true learning to the world."
M5K3 "Properly speaking, it is unlearning that they bring, for that is "true learning" in the world."
M5K3 "It is given to the teachers of God to bring the glad tidings of complete forgiveness to the world."
M6C1 "The resistance to recognizing this is enormous, because the existence of the world as we perceive it depends on the body being the decision-maker."
M6C3 "It costs the world we see, for the world will never again appear to rule the mind."
M6C3 "For with this recognition is responsibility placed where it belongs; not with the world, but on him who looks on the world and sees it as it is not."
M6C3 "The world does nothing to him."
M6C3 "Nor does he do anything to the world, because he was mistaken about what it was."
M6C4 "Place cause and effect in their true sequence in one respect, and the learning will generalize and transform the world."
M9A1 "The belief in order of difficulties is the basis for the world's perception."
M9A1 "And a more threatening idea, or one conceived of as more desirable by the world's standards, completely upsets the mental balance."
M9A3 "Certainly they seem to be in the world outside."
M9A3 "And this meaning does not exist in the world outside at all."
M9A4 "On this the judgment of all differences rests, because it is on this that judgments of the world depend."
M9A6 "This is the gift of its Teacher; the understanding that only two categories are meaningful in sorting out the messages the mind receives from what appears to be the outside world."
M10A2 "The world's training is directed toward achieving a goal in direct opposition to that of our curriculum."
M10A2 "The world trains for reliance on one's judgment as the criterion for maturity and strength."
M11A1 "Judgment, like other devices by which the world of illusions is maintained, is totally misunderstood by the world."
M11A1 "As the world uses the term, an individual is capable of "good" and "bad" judgment, and his education aims at strengthening the former and minimizing the latter."
M11A3 "The aim of our curriculum, unlike the goal of the world's learning, is the recognition that judgment in the usual sense is impossible."
M12A1 "The world you see cannot be the world God loves, and yet His Word assures us that He loves the world."
M12A1 "But it is true that the world must be looked at differently, if His promises are to be accepted."
M12A1 "What the world is, is but a fact."
M12A2 "For they say different things about the world, and things so opposite that it is pointless to try to reconcile them."
M12A2 "God offers the world salvation; your judgment would condemn it."
M12A3 "How is peace possible in this world?"
M12A4 "How easily, then, is your judgment of the world escaped."
M12A4 "It is not the world which makes peace seem impossible."
M12A4 "It is the world you see that is impossible."
M12A4 "Yet has God's Judgment on this distorted world redeemed it and made it fit to welcome peace."
M12A4 "It is no longer, "Can peace be possible in this world?""
M13A2 "God's teachers appear to be many, for that is the world's need."
M13A4 "And these ears will carry to the mind of the hearer messages which are not of this world, and the mind will understand because of their Source."
M14A1 "Although in truth the term sacrifice is altogether meaningless, it does have meaning in the world."
M14A1 "Like all things in the world its meaning is temporary, and will ultimately fade into the nothingness from which it came when there is no more use for it."
M14A1 "The first illusion, which must be displaced before another thought system can take hold, is that it is a sacrifice to give up the things of this world."
M14A1 "What could this be but an illusion, since this world itself is nothing more than that?"
M14A2 "It takes great learning both to realize and to accept the fact that the world has nothing to give."
M14A2 "There is no sacrifice in the world's terms that does not involve the body."
M14A2 "Think a while about what the world calls sacrifice."
M14A3 "Once this confusion has occurred, it becomes impossible for the mind to understand that all the "pleasures" of the world are nothing."
M14A4 "God's teachers can have no regret on giving up the pleasures of the world."
M14A4 "No-one who has escaped the world and all its ills looks back on it with condemnation."
M14A5 "There is no pleasure of the world that does not demand this, for otherwise the pleasure would be seen as pain."
M14A5 ""Seek but do not find" remains this world's stern decree, and no-one who pursues the world's goals can do otherwise."
M14A6 "There is no other hope in all the world that they can trust."
M14A6 "There is no other voice in all the world that echoes God's."
