T5E2 "If you are part of God, it is also the idea of YOURSELF, as well as of all the parts of God."
T5E3 "He may have dissociated the call for God, just as YOU have."
T5E7 "We have said before that the Holy Spirit is God's answer to the ego."
T5E8 "Eternity is an idea of God, so the soul understands it perfectly."
T5E9 "Its equal ability to look BEYOND symbols into eternity also enables it to understand the laws of God, for which it speaks."
T5E10 "It is therefore the task of the Holy Spirit to re-interpret you on behalf of God."
T5E11 "This is because you have no meaning apart from your rightful place in the Sonship, and the rightful place of the Sonship in God."
T5E14 "The Holy Spirit can deal with an unwilling learner without going counter to his will, because part of his will IS still for God."
T5E14 "YOU are at home there, too, because it is a place of peace, and peace is of God."
T5E15 "You who are part of God are not at home EXCEPT in His peace."
T5E16 "His understanding looks back to God, in remembrance of Me."
T5F2 "They came from the Holy Spirit within YOU, and we know that what God creates is eternal."
T5F4 "It is yours because it is part of you, just as you are part of God, because He created you."
T5F9 "If you are part of God, and the Sonship is one, you CANNOT be limited to the self the ego sees."
T5F9 "Sharing is God's way of creating, and also YOURS."
T5F11 "The mind that was in me is still irresistibly drawn to every mind created by God, because God's wholeness IS the wholeness of his Son."
T5F13 "Make it dependable in my name, because my name is the name of God's Son."
T5F13 "By following Him, He leads you back to God where you belong."
T5F14 "I will never leave you or forsake you, because to forsake you would be to forsake myself and God who created me."
T5F14 "You will forsake yourselves and your God if you forsake any of YOUR brothers."
T5F14 "You must learn to see him as he is, and KNOW that he belongs to God, as you do."
T5F14 "How could you treat your brother better than by rendering unto God the things which are God's?"
T5F16 "The Atonement gives you the power of a healed mind, but the power to create is of God."
T5F16 "The full power of creation (creating) cannot be expressed as long as any of God's ideas are withholding it from the Kingdom."
T5F16 "That is because only the complete can think completely, and the thinking of God lacks nothing."
T5F17 "I place the peace of God in your heart, and in your hands, to hold and share."
T5F17 "My judgment is as strong as the wisdom of God, in whose Heart and Hands we have our being."
T5F17 "The Thoughts of God are with you."
T5G3 "Guilt is more than merely not of God."
T5G3 "It is the symbol of the ATTACK on God."
T5G4 "But how can part of God detach itself WITHOUT believing it is attacking Him?"
T5G5 "And however ridiculous the idea of attacking God may be to the sane mind, never forget that the ego is NOT SANE."
T5G5 "Listening to the ego's voice MEANS that you believe it is possible to attack God."
T5G7 "This is because the mind as God created it IS capable of creating reality."
T5G7 "We said before that you must learn to think WITH God."
T5G9 "The ego believes that by punishing ITSELF, it will mitigate the punishment of God."
T5G9 "It attributes to God a punishing attempt, and then takes over this intent as its OWN prerogative."
T5G9 "It tries to usurp ALL the functions of God as it perceives them, because it recognizes that only total allegiance can be trusted."
T5G10 "The ego cannot OPPOSE the laws of God, any more than YOU can."
T5G11 "God created one, and so you cannot eradicate it."
T5G11 "Only what God creates is irreversible and unchangeable."
T5G11 "What YOU have made can always be changed, because when you do not think LIKE God, you have not really thought at all."
T5G12 "The function of thought comes FROM God and is IN God."
T5G12 "God Himself orders your thought, because your thought was created BY Him."
T5G12 "They also show that you believe you CAN think apart from God, and WANT to."
T5H2 "God in His knowledge is not waiting."
T5H2 "All the Sons of God are waiting for your return, just as YOU are waiting for THEIRS."
T5H2 "Your place is ONLY in eternity, where God Himself placed you forever."
T5H3 "God offers you the continuity of eternity in exchange."
T5H4 "The mind does indeed know its power, because the mind does indeed know God."
T5H4 "The mind that was in me IS in you, for God creates with perfect fairness."
T5H9 "Give it therefore to the Holy Spirit, who will undo it in you because it does not BELONG in your mind, which is part of God."
T5H13 "There can BE no case against a child of God, and every witness to guilt in God's creations is bearing false witness to God Himself."
T5H14 "Appeal everything you believe gladly to God's own Higher Court, because it speaks for Him, and therefore speaks truly."
T5H14 "The voice for God will not hear it at all, because it can only witness truly."
T5H15 "Is not a child of God worth patience?"
T5H16 "The Holy Spirit, who speaks for God in time, also knows that time is meaningless."
T5H16 "And because He has been given you so freely by God, you must give Him as you received Him."
T5I1 ""God will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed (or set) on Thee because he trusteth in Thee.""
T5I2 "The statement means that God's peace is set in the Holy Spirit, because it is fixed on God."
T5I2 "You, then, ARE fixed in the peace of God."
T5I5 "Fixation is the pull of God, on whom your mind IS fixed because of the Holy Spirit's irrevocable set."
T5I10 "You were eternally fixated on God in your creation, and the pull of this fixation is so strong that you will never overcome it."
T5I12 "He has not learned that EVERY mind that God created is equally worthy of being healed because GOD CREATED IT WHOLE."
T5I13 "You are asked merely to return to God the mind as HE created it."
T5I13 "Why should you listen to the endless insane calls which you think are made upon you, when you KNOW the voice of God Himself is in you?"
T5I13 "God commended His Spirit to you, and asks that you commend yours to Him."
T5I15 "God Himself gave you the perfect correction for everything you have made which is not in accord with His Holy Will."
T5I16 "God weeps at the sacrifice of His children who believe they are lost to Him."
T5I18 "Whenever you are not wholly joyous, it is because you have reacted with a lack of love to some Soul which God created."
T5I20 "Be very firm with yourselves in this, and keep yourselves fully aware of the fact that the UNDOING process, which does NOT come from you, is nevertheless WITHIN you because God placed it there."
T5I20 "I WILL to let Him by allowing Him to decide for God for me."
T6B3 "The real meaning of the crucifixion lies in the APPARENT intensity of the assault of some of the Sons of God upon a brother."
T6B6 "This is not a lesson which the Sons of God should WANT to teach if they are to realize their own salvation."
T6B7 "God placed it there Himself, and so it is true forever."
T6B7 "Help me to teach it to our brothers in the name of the Kingdom of God."
T6B9 "There is no choice in this, because only you can BE the foundation of God's church."
T6B9 "Any church which does not inspire love has a hidden altar which is not serving the purpose for which God intended it."
T6B10 "As the world judges these things, but NOT as God knows them, I was betrayed, abandoned, beaten, torn, and finally killed."
T6B13 "I will, with God Himself, that none of His Sons should suffer."
T6B13 "Remember that the Holy Spirit is the communication link between God the Father and His separated Sons."
T6B13 "But the Resurrection IS the symbol of sharing, because the re-awakening of every Son of God is necessary to enable the Sonship to know its wholeness."
T6B14 "Their own imperfect love made them vulnerable to projection, and out of their own fear they spoke of the wrath of God as His RETALIATORY weapon."
T6B16 "Judas was my brother and a Son of God, as much a part of the Sonship as myself."
T6B18 "No-one is "punished" for sins, and the Sons of God are not sinners."
T6B19 "As such, it is the perfect symbol of conflict between the ego and the Son of God."
T6B19 "But YOU need to develop your weakened ability to BE grateful, or you cannot appreciate God."
T6B20 "The power of the Sons of God is operating all the time, because they were created as creators."
T6B21 "This is NOT as God thinks, and you must think as He thinks if you are to know Him again."
T6C1 "The wholeness of God, which IS His peace, cannot be appreciated EXCEPT by a whole mind, which recognizes the wholeness of God's creation and BY this recognition knows its Creator."
T6C6 "You cannot be ANYWHERE that God did not put you, and God created you as part of HIM."
T6C7 "Anything that God creates is as true as He is."
T6C7 "The perfect equality of the Holy Spirit's perception is the counterpart of the perfect equality of God's knowing."
T6C7 "The ego's perception has no counterpart in God, but the Holy Spirit remains the bridge between perception and knowledge."
T6C8 "EVERYTHING meets in God, because everything was created BY Him and IN Him."
T6C8 "God created His Sons by extending His Thought and retaining the extensions of His Thought in His Mind."
T6C9 "Prayer is a re-statement of INCLUSION, directed by the Holy Spirit under the laws of God."
T6C9 "God created you to create."
T6C9 "This is as true of God's thinking as it is of yours."
T6C10 "He can INSPIRE perception and lead it toward God by making it PARALLEL to God's way of thinking, and thus guaranteeing their ultimate meeting."
T6C10 "Coming from God, He uses EVERYTHING for good, but does not BELIEVE in what is not true."
T6C11 "The Holy Spirit can speak only for this, because he speaks for God."
T6C11 "He tells you to return your whole mind to God, BECAUSE IT HAS NEVER LEFT HIM."
T6C12 "God made nothing either necessary OR difficult."
T6C13 "This is the way in which you MUST perceive God's Creations, bringing all of your perceptions into the one parallel line which the Holy Spirit sees."
T6C13 "This line is the direct line of communication with God, and lets YOUR mind converge with HIS."
T6C13 "There is NO CONFLICT ANYWHERE in this perception, because it means that ALL perception is guided by the Holy Spirit, whose mind is fixed on God."
T6C14 "This is the one message which God gave TO Him, and for which He must speak because that is what He IS."
T6C14 "The peace of God lies in that message, and so the peace of God lies in YOU."
T6C15 "Each of us IS the Light of the world, and by joining our minds IN this Light, we proclaim the Kingdom of God together and AS ONE."
T6D2 "By attacking nothing, it presents no barrier at all to the communication of God."
T6D5 "The protection of God then dawns upon it, assuring it that it is perfectly safe forever."
T6E2 "When God created you, He made you part of Him."
T6E2 "This enables the ego to regard itself as SEPARATE AND OUTSIDE ITS MAKER, thus speaking for the part of your mind that believes YOU are separate and outside the Mind of God."
T6E6 "You are a Child of God, a priceless part of His Kingdom, which He created as part of Him."
T6E6 "You have chosen a sleep in which you have had bad dreams, but the sleep is not real, and God calls you to awake."
T6E7 "BEING alone lives in the Kingdom, where everything lives in God without question."
T6E8 "YOU are as certain as God, because you are as true as He is."
T6E8 "Your abilities are totally useless in the presence of God's accomplishments and also of yours."
T6E10 "This is not true of anything that God created, but it is the kindest solution possible to what YOU have made."
T6E11 "You WOULD be in an impossible situation if God showed you your perfection, and PROVED to you that you were wrong."
T6E12 "This is the kind of reasoning that the ego engages in, but God, who KNOWS that His creations are perfect does NOT insult them."
T6E12 "Fidelity to premises is a law of the mind, and everything God created is faithful to His laws."
T6E13 "What would be gained if God proved to you that you have thought insanely?"
T6E13 "Can God lose His own certainty?"
T6E13 "Would you have God teach you that you have sinned?"
T6E13 "God does not teach."
T6E13 "To teach is to imply a lack which God KNOWS is not there."
T6E13 "God is not conflicted."
T6E13 "Teaching aims at change, but God created ONLY the changeless."
T6E14 "It could not shatter the peace of God, but it COULD shatter YOURS."
T6E14 "God did not blot it out, because to eradicate it would be to attack it."
T6E15 "God's answer IS your teacher."
T6F1 "Could God teach you that you had made a split mind when He knows your mind only as whole?"
T6F2 "What God DOES know is that His communication channels are not open to Him, so that He cannot impart His joy and know that His Children are wholly joyous."
T6F2 "God's extending outward, though not His completeness, was blocked when the Sonship does not communicate with Him as one."
T6F6 "Nothing lasting lies in dreams, and the Holy Spirit, shining with the light from God Himself, speaks only for what lasts forever."
T6F8 "God did not make the body, because it is destructible, and therefore not of the Kingdom."
T6F11 "Only one equal gift CAN be offered to the equal Sons of God, and that is FULL APPRECIATION."
T6F11 "The Holy Spirit, which leads to God, translates communication into being, just as He ultimately translates perception into knowledge."
T6G9 "But the Holy Spirit teaches you that truth was created by God, and YOUR decision CANNOT change it."
T6G9 "That is why we suggested before that there was help in reminding yourselves to allow the Holy Spirit to decide for God for YOU."
T6G10 "But it MUST be insane to believe IT IS UP TO YOU to decide what God's Creations ARE."
T6G13 "To desire wholly is to CREATE, and creating CANNOT be difficult if God Himself created you AS a creator."
T6G13 "The second step, then, is still perceptual but it is nevertheless a giant step toward the unified perception that parallels God's knowing."
T6H1 "In YOUR mind, and your mind ONLY, He sorts out the true from the false, and teaches you to judge every thought that you allow to ENTER in the light of what God PUT there."
T6H3 "God Himself has established what you can project with perfect safety."
T6H3 "Therefore, the Holy Spirit's third lesson is: Be vigilant ONLY for God and HIS Kingdom."
T6H7 "If you allow yourselves to HAVE in your minds only what God put there, you are acknowledging your mind as God created it."
T6H7 "The final step will still be taken FOR you by God."
T6H7 "But by the third step, the Holy Spirit has PREPARED you FOR God."
T6H9 "The third step is thus one of PROTECTION for your minds by allowing you to identify ONLY with the center, where God placed the altar to HIMSELF."
T6H9 "We have already said that altars are BELIEFS, but God and His creations are BEYOND belief because they are beyond question."
T6H9 "The Voice FOR God speaks only for BELIEF beyond question, but this IS the preparation for BEING without question."
T6H10 "As long as belief in God and His Kingdom is assailed by ANY doubts in your minds, His perfect Accomplishment is NOT apparent to you."
T6H10 "This is why you MUST be vigilant ON GOD's BEHALF."
T6H12 "Certainty is OF God for YOU."
T6H12 "By making another Kingdom WHICH YOU VALUED, you did NOT keep the Kingdom of God alone in your minds, and thus placed part of your mind OUTSIDE of it."
T6H14 "It is in the perfect safety of God."
T7A1 "The creative power of both God AND His Creations is limitless, but it is NOT in reciprocal relationship."
T7A1 "You DO communicate fully WITH God, as He does with YOU."
T7A1 "This is an ongoing process in which you SHARE, and BECAUSE you share it, you are inspired to create LIKE God."
T7A1 "But in Creation you are NOT in a reciprocal relation TO God, because He created YOU, but you did NOT create Him."
T7A2 "If you created GOD and He created you, the KINGDOM could not increase through its OWN creative thought."
T7A2 "Creation would therefore be limited, and you would NOT be co-creators WITH God."
T7A2 "As God's creative Thought proceeds FROM Him TO you, so must YOUR creative thoughts proceed FROM you to YOUR creations."
T7A2 "God's accomplishments are NOT yours."
T7A3 "You claim this power when you have become wholly vigilant for God AND the Kingdom."
T7A3 "YOUR creations belong in YOU, as YOU belong in God."
T7A3 "You are part of God, as your sons are part of His Sons."
T7A3 "God's creations have ALWAYS BEEN, because HE has always been."
T7B1 "To bargain is to LIMIT giving, and this is NOT God's Will."
T7B1 "To will WITH God is to create like HIM."
T7B1 "God does not limit HIS gifts in ANY way."
T7B2 "What you believe you are DETERMINES your gifts, and if God created you by extending HIMSELF AS you, you can only extend YOURSELF as He did."
T7B2 "God extends outward beyond limits and beyond time, and you, who are co-creators with Him, extend His Kingdom forever and beyond limit."
T7B3 "To think like God is to share His certainty of WHAT YOU ARE."
T7B3 "To this the Holy Spirit leads you, that your joy may be complete because the Kingdom of God is whole."
T7B3 "We have said that the last step in the re-awakening of knowledge is taken by God."
T7B4 "God does not take steps because His Accomplishments are NOT gradual."
T7B5 "The "last step" that God was said to take was therefore true in the beginning, is true now, and will be true forever."
T7B5 "God does not REVEAL this to you, because it was never hidden."
T7B6 "To heal is the ONLY kind of thinking in this world that resembles the Thought of God, and because of the elements which they SHARE, can transfer TO it."
T7B6 "Sickness and separation are not of God, but the Kingdom IS."
T7B6 "If you obscure the Kingdom, you are perceiving WHAT IS NOT OF GOD."
T7C6 "God and His Sons, in the surety of Being, KNOW that what you project you ARE."
T7C7 "God Himself created the law by creating BY it."
T7C8 "The Holy Spirit IS the translator of the Laws of God to those who do NOT understand them."
T7C9 "God's Law of Creation, in perfect form, does NOT involve the USE of truth to convince His sons OF truth."
T7C11 "This Meaning comes from God and IS God."
T7C11 "That is why it IS the Kingdom of God."
T7D7 "By teaching the power of the Kingdom of God Himself, He teaches you that ALL POWER IS YOURS."
T7E1 "God's MEANING waits in the Kingdom because that is where He placed it."
T7E1 "How can you, who ARE God's meaning, perceive yourselves as absent FROM it?"
T7E3 "Because God's equal Sons have everything, they CANNOT compete."
T7E5 "God has lit your minds Himself, and keeps your mind lit BY His light because His light is WHAT YOUR MINDS ARE."
T7E7 "Healing is also a science because it obeys the laws of God, whose laws are true."
T7E8 "Inspiration is of the Spirit, and certainty is of God according to His laws."
T7E8 "Both therefore come from the same Source, because inspiration comes from the voice FOR God and certainty comes from the laws OF God."
T7E8 "Healing does not come DIRECTLY from God, who knows His Creations as perfectly whole."
T7E8 "But healing is nevertheless OF God, because it proceeds from His Voice and from His laws."
T7E9 "This is an intermediary step toward the knowledge that YOU are in God BECAUSE YOU ARE PART OF HIM."
T7E9 "This is God's will AND yours."
T7E9 "The laws of God ESTABLISH this, and the Holy Spirit reminds you OF it."
T7E9 "When you heal, you are REMEMBERING THE LAWS OF GOD and FORGETTING the laws of the ego."
T7E10 "BY healing you learn of wholeness, and by learning of wholeness you learn to remember God."
T7E11 "This perception is therefore IN accord with the laws of God even in a state of mind which is OUT of accord with His."
T7E12 "To oppose the pull or the will of God is not an ability but a real delusion."
T7E12 "God HAS given you a gift, which you both HAVE and ARE."
T7E12 "Healing, then, is a way of APPROACHING knowledge by THINKING in accordance with the laws of God and RECOGNIZING THEIR UNIVERSALITY."
T7E13 "Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of Heaven, because that is where the laws of God operate truly, and they can operate ONLY truly, because they are the laws of Truth."
T7E13 "God is all in all in a very literal sense."
T7F4 "He may believe that this gift comes from God TO him, but it is quite evident that he does NOT understand God if he thinks HE has something that others DO NOT."
T7F7 "Can ANYTHING of God NOT be for all and always?"
T7F8 "EVERYTHING that is of God can be counted on, because everything of God is WHOLLY REAL."
T7F8 "Understanding MEANS consistence, because GOD means consistence."
T7F8 "God CANNOT be out of accord with HIMSELF, and YOU cannot be out of accord with Him."
T7F9 "Learning is constant and so vital in its power for change that a Son of God can recognize his power in an instant, and change the world in the next."
T7F10 "This in no way contradicts the changelessness of mind as GOD created it."
T7F11 "This is how God Himself created YOU, in understanding, in appreciation, and in love."
T7F15 "This light will shine back upon YOU and on the whole Sonship because this IS your proper gift to God."
T7F15 "This is the true communion of the Spirit Who sees the altar of God in everyone, and by bringing it to YOUR appreciation calls upon you to love God and His Creation."
T7G1 "That includes his perception of God, of His Creations, and of his own."
T7G8 "If you will keep in mind what the Holy Spirit offers you, you cannot be vigilant for anything BUT God and His Kingdom."
T7G9 "When YOU believe what God DOES NOT KNOW, your thought seems to CONTRADICT His, and this makes it appear AS IF YOU ARE ATTACKING HIM."
T7G9 "We have repeatedly emphasized that the ego DOES believe it can attack God, and tries to persuade you that YOU have done this."
T7G11 "The ego is therefore totally committed to UNtruth, perceiving in total contradiction to the Holy Spirit and to the knowledge of God."
T7G12 "You can be perceived with meaning ONLY by the Holy Spirit, because your being IS the knowledge of God."
T7G12 "ANY belief that you accept which is APART from this WILL obscure God's voice in you, and will therefore obscure God TO you."
T7G12 "Unless you perceive His Creation truly, you CANNOT know the Creator, because God and His Creation ARE NOT SEPARATE."
T7G12 "This limitless power is God's gift to you, because it is WHAT YOU ARE."
T7G13 "Perceived WITHOUT your part IN it, God's Creation IS perceived as weak, and those who SEE themselves as weakened DO attack."
T7G15 "In this depressing state, the Holy Spirit reminds you gently that you are sad because you are not fulfilling your function as co-creators WITH God, and are therefore depriving YOURSELVES of joy."
T7G15 "This is not God's will, but YOURS."
T7G15 "If your will is out of accord with God's, YOU ARE WILLING WITHOUT MEANING."
T7G15 "But because ONLY God's will is unchangeable, no REAL conflict of will is possible."
T7G15 "Creation, not separation, IS your will BECAUSE it is God's."
T7H2 "But in the service of the Holy Spirit, the law becomes as beneficent as all of the laws of God."
T7H3 "This IS the law of God, and it HAS NO EXCEPTIONS."
T7H4 "You do NOT need God's blessing, because that you have forever."
T7H6 "Give only honor to the sons of the living God, and count yourself among them gladly."
T7H7 "ONLY honor is a fitting gift for those whom God Himself created worthy of honor and whom He honors."
T7H7 "Give them the appreciation which God accords them always, because they are His Beloved Sons in whom He is well pleased."
T7H8 "One Child of God is the only teacher sufficiently worthy to teach another."
T7H8 "He always teaches you the inestimable worth of EVERY Son of God, teaching it with infinite patience born of the Love of Him for whom He speaks."
T7H10 "Being the part of your mind which does NOT believe it is responsible for ITSELF, and being without allegiance to God, it is incapable of trust."
T7H10 "Projecting its insane belief that YOU have been treacherous to YOUR Creator, it believes that your brothers, who are as incapable of this as you are, are out to TAKE GOD FROM YOU."
T7H10 "If you will to separate YOURSELF from God, that is what you will think others are doing TO you."
T7H11 "You ARE the will of God."
T7H11 "But see the love of God in you, and you will see it everywhere because it IS everywhere."
T7H11 "They are part of you as you are part of God."
T7H11 "YOU are as lonely without understanding this as God Himself is lonely when His Sons do not know Him."
T7H11 "The peace of God IS understanding this."
T7H12 "They will always be treasured by God, because they belong to His Beloved Sons who belong to Him."
T7I1 "It is the law which unifies the Kingdom and keeps it in the mind of God."
T7I3 "The ego, using its own warped version of the laws of God, uses the power of the mind ONLY to defeat the mind's real purpose."
T7I7 "It is the distorted product of the misapplication of the laws of God by distorted minds which are misusing their own power."
T7J1 "Only you can limit your creative power, but God wills to release it."
T7J2 "Do not withhold your gifts to the Sonship, or you withhold yourself from God."
T7J2 "The soul KNOWS that the consciousness of all its brothers is included in its own, as IT is included in God."
T7J3 "The ego cannot prevail against a totality which includes God, and any totality MUST include God."
T7J3 "It does NOT wish to CONTAIN God, but to EXTEND HIS BEING."
T7J4 "The extension of God's Being is the Soul's only function."
T7J4 "But God does NOT know unfulfillment, and therefore you MUST create."
T7J5 "The Kingdom is forever extending, because it is in the Mind of God."
T7J6 "The creations of every Son of God are yours, because every creation belongs to everyone, being created for the Sonship as a whole."
T7J7 "You have not failed to add to the inheritance of the Sons of God, and thus have not failed to secure it for yourselves."
T7J7 "If it was the will of God to give it to you, He gave it forever."
T7J7 "Disobeying God's will is meaningful only to the insane."
T7J8 "Your self-fullness is as boundless as God's."
T7J10 "Is it not possible that you have done the same thing with the premises of God?"
T7J11 "But the function which God Himself GAVE your minds through His you may DENY but you CANNOT prevent."
T7J11 "Truth is GOD's will."
T7K3 "You REALLY believe that doing the opposite of God's will CAN be better for you."
T7K3 "You also believe that it is POSSIBLE to do the opposite of God's will."
T7K3 "But God WILLS."
T7K3 "You CAN wish for the impossible, but you can only WILL with God."
T7K6 "God Himself trusts you and therefore your trustworthiness IS beyond question."
T7K6 "I trust MY choices ONLY because they ARE God's Will."
T7K6 "We said before that YOU are the will of God."
T7K7 "It was accomplished FOR you by the Will of God, who has not left you comfortless."
T7K7 "There IS no confusion in the mind of a Son of God, whose will MUST be the will of the Father, because the Father's Will IS His Son."
T7K8 "Miracles are IN ACCORD with the Will of God, whose will you do NOT know because you are confused about what YOU will."
T7K8 "If you ARE God's will and do NOT ACCEPT His will, you can ONLY be not accepting what you are."
T7L1 "This is His will for everyone, because He speaks for the Kingdom of God which IS joy."
T7L1 "The world goes AGAINST your nature, because it is out of accord with God's laws."
T7L2 "Grace is the natural state of every Son of God."
T7L2 "A Son of God is happy ONLY when he knows he is WITH God."
T7L3 "Is it worthy to be a home for a Child of God?"
T7L3 "Does it teach him that this giving IS his joy, and that God Himself thanks him for his giving?"
T7L4 "God watches over His children and denies them nothing."
T7L4 "You who could give the love of God to everything you see and touch and remember are literally denying Heaven to yourselves."
T7L5 "Every Son who returns to the Kingdom with this lesson in his heart has healed the Sonship and given thanks to God."
T7L5 "The majesty of God is there, for YOU to recognize and appreciate and KNOW."
T7L6 "Perceiving the majesty of God AS your brother is to accept your OWN inheritance."
T7L6 "God gives only equally."
T7L7 "We said before that only the whole Sonship is a worthy co-creator with God, because only the whole Sonship can create LIKE Him."
T7L7 "He is a co-creator with God with YOU."
T7L7 "Deny his creative power and you are denying yours AND THAT OF GOD WHO CREATED YOU."
T7L8 "Your creations cannot establish your reality, any more than YOU can establish God's."
T7L8 "Because God shared His Being with you, you can know Him."
T7L8 "The Kingdom of God includes all His Sons and their children, who are like the Sons as they are like the Father."
T7L8 "Know then the Sons of God, and you will know ALL Creation."
T8A2 "This is not a bargain made by God, who made no bargains at all."
T8C2 "Is THIS the teacher to whom a Son of God should turn to find HIMSELF?"
T8C4 "It is NEVER God Who coerces you, because He SHARES His Will WITH you."
T8C4 "The LESSON is that your will and God's CANNOT be out of accord because they ARE one."
T8C5 "The ego wants to teach you that you want to OPPOSE God's Will."
T8C5 "The Holy Spirit opposes ANY imprisoning of the will of a Son of God, KNOWING that the will of the Son IS the Father's."
T8C7 "His direction is freedom, and His goal is God."
T8C7 "But He cannot conceive of God without YOU, because it was not God's Will to BE without you."
T8C7 "When you have learned that your will IS God's, you could no more will to be without Him than He could will to be without YOU."
T8C7 "Deny YOURSELF this, and you ARE denying God His Kingdom, because He created you FOR this."
T8C8 "When we said, "all power and glory are yours because the Kingdom is His," this is what we meant: The Will of God is without limit, and all power and glory lie within it."
T8C8 "YOU are the Will of God, because this is how you were created."
T8C9 "To what else EXCEPT all power and glory can the Holy Spirit appeal to restore God's Kingdom?"
T8C9 "Awakening runs easily and gladly through the Kingdom in answer to the call of God."
T8C9 "This is the natural response of every Son of God to the Voice of His Creator, because it is the voice for HIS creations and for his own extension."
T8D1 "Glory be to God in the highest, and to you because He has so willed it."
T8D2 "To fulfill the Will of God perfectly is the only joy and peace that can be fully KNOWN, because it is the only function that can be FULLY EXPERIENCED."
T8D2 "But the WISH for other experience will block this, because God's Will CANNOT be forced upon you, being an experience of total WILLINGNESS."
T8D3 "That is why you need Him, and why God gave Him TO you."
T8D3 "Only HIS teaching will release your will to God's, uniting it with His power and glory, and establishing them as yours."
T8D4 "You who belong in God have the holy function of extending His Fatherhood by placing no limits upon it."
T8D4 "Let the Holy Spirit teach you HOW to do this, for you will know what it MEANS of God Himself."

T8D11 "Glory is God's gift to you because that is what HE is."
T8E1 "If God's Will for you is complete peace and joy, unless you experience ONLY this you MUST be refusing to acknowledge His Will."
T8E4 "You WERE in darkness until God's Will was done completely by ANY part of the Sonship."
T8E5 "YOUR reactions to me ARE the reactions of the world to God."
T8E5 "If you will accept the fact that I am with you, you are DENYING the world and ACCEPTING GOD."
T8E8 "If it were not so, the Sons of God would be unequal."
T8E9 "Your will is as free as mine, and God Himself would not go against it."
T8E9 "I cannot will what God does not will."
T8E9 "I CAN offer you my will to make yours invincible by this sharing, but I CANNOT oppose yours without competing with it and thereby violating God's Will for you."
T8E9 "Nothing God created can oppose your will, as nothing God created can oppose His."
T8E9 "God GAVE your will its power, which I can only acknowledge in honor of His."
T8E10 "How else can it be, if God's Kingdom IS freedom?"
T8E10 "Freedom cannot be learned by tyranny of ANY kind, and the perfect equality of ALL God's Sons cannot be recognized through the dominion of one will over another."
T8E10 "God's Sons are equal in will, all being the Will of their Father."
T8E11 "In our remembrance of EACH OTHER lies our remembrance of God."
T8E12 "By OFFERING freedom you will be free, because freedom is the only gift which you can offer to God's Sons, being an acknowledgment of what they are and what HE is."
T8E16 "By NOT BEING SEPARATE, the Will of God is established IN ours and AS ours."
T8E16 "The UNDIVIDED will of the Sonship is the perfect creator, being wholly in the likeness of God, Whose Will it IS."
T8E16 "By separating your will from mine, you ARE exempting yourself from the Will of God which IS yourself."

T8E20 "Our success in transcending the ego is guaranteed by God, and I can share my perfect confidence IN His Promise because I know He gave me this confidence for both of us and ALL of us."
T8E20 "Nothing can prevail against our united wills, because nothing can prevail against God's."
T8E20 "Would ye know the Will of God for YOU?"
T8E20 "I will deny YOU nothing, as God denies ME nothing."
T8E21 "Ours is simply the journey back to God Who is our home."
T8E22 "Let us not lose sight of His direction through illusions, for ONLY illusions of another direction can obscure the one for which God's Voice speaks in all of us."
T8F2 "God's welcome waits for us all, and He will welcome us as I am welcoming YOU."
T8F2 "Forget not the Kingdom of God for anything the world has to offer."
T8F2 "The world can ADD nothing to the power and the glory of God and His Holy Sons, but it CAN blind the Sons to the Father if they behold it."
T8F2 "You cannot behold the world and know God."
T8F3 "But God did not will the destruction of His Creations, having created them for eternity."
T8F4 "No-one created by God can find joy in anything except the eternal."
T8F4 "What God AND His Sons create IS eternal, and in this and this only is their joy."
T8F4 "Listen to the story of the prodigal son, and learn what God's treasure is and YOURS."
T8F6 "God wants only His Son, because His Son is His only treasure."
T8F6 "But they EXTEND your creation, as God extended Himself to YOU."
T8F6 "Can the Creations of God Himself take joy in what is not real?"
T8F6 "And what IS real except the Creations of God and those which are created like His?"
T8F7 "But you COULD not make YOURSELF unworthy because YOU ARE THE TREASURE OF GOD."
T8F7 "There CAN be no question of its worth, because its value lies in God's sharing Himself with it and ESTABLISHING ITS VALUE FOREVER."
T8F7 "YOUR function is to ADD to God's treasure by creating YOURS."
T8F8 "Creation is the Will of God."
T8F9 "When you THINK you are unwilling to will with God, YOU ARE NOT THINKING."
T8F9 "God's will IS thought."
T8F9 "God does not contradict HIMSELF."
T8F9 "But their thought is so powerful that they can even imprison the mind of God's Son IF THEY SO CHOOSE."
T8F10 "The whole power of God's Son lies in all of us, but not in any of us alone."
T8F10 "God would not have us be alone because HE does not will to be alone."
T8F10 "Our creations are as holy as we are, and we are the Sons of God Himself, and therefore as holy as He is."
T8F10 "You who are God's own treasure do not regard yourselves as valuable."
T8F11 "I share with God the knowledge of the value HE puts upon you."
T8F11 "Whom God has joined CANNOT be separated, and God has joined all His Sons WITH HIMSELF."
T8F11 "The journey to God is merely the reawakening of the knowledge of where you are always, and what you are forever."
T8F12 "I can make you aware of the CONDITIONS of truth, but the experience is of God."
T8F12 "What God has willed for you IS yours."
T8F12 "You who are beloved of God are wholly blessed."
T8G2 "When a Child of God thinks of himself in this way, he is belittling himself and seeing his brothers as similarly belittled."
T8G2 "Being the communication link between God and His separated Sons, He interprets everything YOU have in the light of what HE is."
T8G4 "This is God's way of making unlimited what YOU have limited."
T8G4 "His Voice does not see the body as YOU do, because He knows the ONLY reality that ANYTHING can have is the service it can render God on behalf of the function HE has given."
T8G6 "To communicate with part of God Himself is to reach beyond the Kingdom to its Creator, through His Voice which He has established as part of YOU."
T8G7 "Let no Son of God remain hidden for His Name's sake, because His Name is YOURS."
T8G10 "In this sense the body DOES become a temple to God, because His Voice abides in it by directing the use TO WHICH YOU PUT IT."
T8G15 "When your learning promotes depression INSTEAD of joy, you CANNOT be listening to God's joyous teacher, and you MUST be learning amiss."
T8G18 "Joy is unified purpose, and unified purpose is ONLY God's."
T8G18 "You have condemned yourself, but condemnation is not of God."
T8G19 "Do not arrest your thought in this world, and you will open your mind to Creation in God."
T8I6 "But to make mindless is impossible, since it would mean to make nothing out of what God Created."
T8I7 "Actually, it is PARTICULARLY the references to the outcomes of love that should be taken literally because the Bible is ABOUT love, being about GOD."
T8I8 "The name of God's Son is One, and you are enjoined to do the works of love BECAUSE we share this oneness."
T8I9 "I give you NO limits, because God lays none upon you."
T8I10 "We said before that your task is only to meet the conditions FOR meaning, since meaning itself is of God."
T8J1 "Fear of the Will of God is one of the strangest beliefs that the human mind has ever made."
T8J1 "The very fact that the will of God, which IS what you are, is perceived as fearful TO you demonstrates that you ARE afraid of what you are."
T8J1 "It is not, then, the will of God of which you are afraid, but YOURS."
T8J1 "What seems to be the fear of God is really only the fear of YOUR OWN REALITY."
T8J3 "When we said that the Holy Spirit's function is to sort out the true from the false in your unconscious, we meant that He has the power to look into what YOU have hidden, and perceive the Will of God there."
T8J4 "But if you ask the sacrifice of reality OF YOURSELVES, the Holy Spirit MUST remind you that this is not God's will BECAUSE it is not yours."
T8J5 "There is NO DIFFERENCE between your will and God's."
T8J7 "Your will is your salvation BECAUSE IT IS THE SAME AS GOD's."
T8J7 "NO mind can believe that its will is STRONGER than God's."
T8J7 "If, then, a mind believes that ITS will is different FROM His, it can only decide either that there IS no God, or that GOD'S WILL IS FEARFUL."
T8J7 "Martyrdom takes many forms, the category including ALL doctrines which hold that God demands sacrifices of ANY kind."
T8J8 "Either basic type of insane decision will induce panic, because the atheist believes he is alone and the martyr believes that God is crucifying him."
T8J8 "The atheist maintains that God has left him, but he does not care."
T8J8 "He will, however, become very fearful, and hence very ANGRY, if anyone suggests that God has NOT left him."
T8J9 "The Holy Spirit is totally incapable of giving YOU anything that does NOT come from God."
T8J10 "Ultimately everyone must learn the will of God, because ultimately everyone must recognize HIMSELF."
T8J10 "Fear cannot be real without a cause, and GOD is the only Cause."
T8J10 "God is Love, and you DO want Him."
T8J11 "Would the Holy Spirit deny the Will of God?"
T8J11 "And could He fail to recognize it in God's Sons?"
T8J12 "God COULD not will that happiness DEPENDED on what you could never have."
T8J13 "The fact that God is love does not require belief, but it DOES require ACCEPTANCE."
T8J15 "God, in His devotion to YOU, created you devoted to EVERYTHING, and GAVE you what you are devoted TO."
T8J16 "Remember, then, that God's Will is ALREADY possible, and nothing else will EVER be."
T8J16 "Say, therefore, : "Christ is in me, and where He is God MUST be, for Christ is PART of Him.""
T8K4 "If you would know your prayers are answered, never doubt a Son of God."
T8K4 "If you would know God and His Answer, believe in me, whose faith in YOU cannot be shaken."
T8K6 "You cannot hear the Voice for God in yourself alone, because you are NOT alone."
T8K7 "Would God have created a Voice for you alone?"
T8K7 "Could you hear His answer EXCEPT as He answers ALL of God's Sons?"
T8K8 "I love you for the truth in you, as GOD does."
T8K8 "If you would hear ME, hear my brothers, in whom God's Voice speaks."
T8K9 "Believe in me BY believing in them, for the sake of what God gave them."
T8K9 "Hear only God's answer in His Sons, and YOU are answered."
T8K12 "To believe that it is possible to get much FOR little, is to believe that you can bargain with God."
T8K13 "God's laws are ALWAYS fair, and PERFECTLY consistent."
T8K14 "Say, then, to everyone, "Because I will to know myself, I see you as God's Son and my brother.""
T9A2 "HE is still right, because he is a Son of God."
T9B5 "Correction is of God, Who does not know of arrogance."
T9B5 "The Holy Spirit forgives everything, BECAUSE GOD CREATED EVERYTHING."
T9B6 "GOD gave you the function to create in eternity."
T9C3 "By RE-INTERPRETING the ability to ATTACK, which you DID make, into the ability to SHARE, He TRANSLATES what you have made, into what God created."
T9C5 "Many have tried to do this in my name, forgetting that my words make PERFECT sense, because they come from GOD."
T9C10 "Only if the decision that reality is fearful is WRONG, can GOD be right."
T9C10 "And I ASSURE you that God IS right."
T9C11 "Had you REMEMBERED, you could no more have been wrong than God can."
T9C12 "It belongs to you and me and God, and is perfectly satisfying to all of us."
T9D1 "The ego's plan for forgiveness is far more widely used than God's."
T9D3 "Projecting condemnation onto God, they make Him retaliative, and FEAR HIS RETRIBUTION."
T9D7 "When God said: "Let there be Light," there WAS light."
T9D9 "The light in HIS mind will therefore ANSWER the questioner, who MUST decide with God that there IS light BECAUSE HE SEES IT."
T9D11 "Trust Him, for help is His function, and He is of God."
T9E3 "God has but one Son, knowing them all as One."
T9E3 "Only God Himself is more than they, but they are not less than He is."
T9E3 "Every Soul God created is part of you, and shares His glory WITH you."
T9E4 "Neither God's Light nor YOURS is dimmed because you do not see."
T9E5 "You can know yourself only as God knows His Son, for KNOWLEDGE is shared WITH God."
T9E6 "THEY will become the witnesses to your reality, as YOU were created witnesses to God's."
T9E8 "But this cannot mean anything to you, until you remember God's open arms, and finally know His open Mind."
T9E8 "God's meaning is incomplete without you, and you are incomplete without your creations."
T9E9 "You will never know that you are co-creator with God, until you learn that your brother is a co-creator with YOU."
T9F1 "God's Will is your salvation."
T9F2 "God wills you perfect happiness NOW."
T9F8 "With the grandeur of God in you, you have chosen to be little, and lament your littleness."
T9F9 "If it comes from God, He knows it to be true."
T9F10 "Whenever you question your value, say, "God Himself is incomplete without me.""
T9F10 "The truth about YOU is so lofty that nothing that is unworthy of God is worthy of you."
T9F10 "Choose, then, what you want in these terms, and accept nothing that you would not offer to God as wholly fitting for HIM, for YOU do not want anything else."
T9G1 "Grandeur is of God, and ONLY of Him."
T9G1 "Whenever you become aware of it, however dimly, you abandon the ego automatically, because in the presence of the grandeur of God, the meaninglessness of the ego becomes perfectly apparent."
T9G1 "The grandiosity of the ego is its alternative to the grandeur of God."
T9G4 "The ego is immobilized in the presence of God's grandeur, because HIS grandeur establishes YOUR freedom."
T9G5 "But your grandeur is of God, who created it out of His love."
T9G5 "By blessing you hold it in your minds, protecting it from illusions, and keeping yourself in the Mind of God."
T9G6 "Remember always that you cannot be anywhere EXCEPT in the Mind of God."
T9G6 "Your grandeur is God's ANSWER to the ego, because it is true."
T9G9 "God WANTS you to behold what He created, because it is HIS joy."
T9G9 "Can your grandeur be arrogant, when God HIMSELF witnesses to it?"
T9G9 "What He cannot TRANSFORM to the Will of God does not exist at all."
T9G9 "Yet what God has created cannot BE replaced."
T9G10 "God is incomplete without you, simply because His grandeur is total, and you cannot BE missing from it."
T9G10 "You are altogether irreplaceable in the Mind of God."
T9G10 "God, through His Voice, reminds you of it, and God Himself keeps your extensions safe within it."
T9G11 "God, Who KNOWS your value, would not have it so, and so it is NOT so."
T9G11 "Your value is in GOD's Mind, and therefore NOT in yours alone."
T9G11 "To accept your littleness IS arrogant, because it means that you believe that YOUR evaluation of yourself is TRUER THAN GOD's."
T9G11 "But if truth is indivisible, then YOUR evaluation of yourself MUST BE GOD's."
T9G12 "But do not be afraid of His Answer, for it comes from God."
T9G12 "Listen and do not question what you hear, for God does not deceive."
T9H1 "You can VIOLATE God's laws in your imagination, but you cannot escape from them."
T9H2 "God created nothing beside you, and nothing beside you exists, for you are part of Him."
T9H2 "What can upset you except the ephemeral, and how can the ephemeral be real, if you are God's ONLY creation, and He created you eternal?"
T9H3 "God does not change His Mind about YOU, for He is not uncertain of HIMSELF."
T9H4 "Can anything EXCEED the love of God?"
T9H4 "Nothing can reach you from BEYOND it, because being in God, YOU encompass everything."
T9H4 "When ANYTHING threatens your peace of mind, ask yourself "Has God changed His Mind about me?""
T9H4 "God will never decide AGAINST you, or He would be deciding against Himself."
T9H5 "But remember that IT IS AS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD."
T9H5 "Everything that was created is therefore PERFECTLY safe, because the laws of God protect it by His love."
T9H6 "Recognize this gladly, for in this recognition lies the realization that your banishment is not of God, and therefore does not exist."
T9H6 "You are at home in God, dreaming of exile, but perfectly capable of awakening to Reality."
T9I2 "Offer the Holy Spirit only your will to remember, for He retains the knowledge of God and of you FOR you, waiting for your acceptance."
T9I2 "Give up gladly EVERYTHING that would stand in the way of your remembering, for God is in your memory, and His Voice will tell you that you are part of Him when you are willing to remember Him and know your own reality again."
T9I3 "God WILL do His part if you will do yours, and HIS return in exchange for yours IS the exchange of knowledge for perception."
T9I4 "YOUR denial of reality precludes ACCEPTANCE of God's gift, BECAUSE YOU HAVE ACCEPTED SOMETHING ELSE IN ITS PLACE."
T9I4 "If you understand that the misuse of defenses always constitutes an attack on truth, and truth is God, you will realize why this is ALWAYS fearful."
T9I4 "If you further recognize that you are PART of God, you will also understand why it is that YOU ALWAYS ATTACK YOURSELF FIRST."
T9I5 "And if your reality is God's, when YOU attack, you are not remembering HIM."
T9I6 "By deciding AGAINST your reality, you have made yourself vigilant AGAINST God and His Kingdom."
T9I7 "You have NOT attacked God, and you DO love Him."
T9I7 "The idols are nothing, but their worshippers are the Sons of God in sickness."
T9I8 "God would have them released from their sickness, and returned to His Mind."
T9I8 "What Comforter can there be for the sick children of God except His power through YOU?"
T9I9 "Heal your brothers simply by accepting God FOR them."
T9I9 "Your minds are not separate, and God has only one channel for healing, because He has but one Son."
T9I9 "To believe that a Son of God can be sick is to believe that PART OF GOD CAN SUFFER."
T9I10 "Do not side with sickness in the presence of a Son of God, even if HE believes in it, for YOUR acceptance of God in him ACKNOWLEDGES the love of God which he has forgotten."
T9I10 "Your recognition of him as PART OF GOD teaches him the truth about himself, WHICH HE IS DENYING."
T9I10 "Would you STRENGTHEN his denial of God, and thus lose sight of YOURSELF?"
T9I11 "To believe a Son of God is sick is to worship the same idol he does."
T9I11 "God created love, NOT idolatry."
T9I11 "But this is impossible, because you are part of God, Who IS all power."
T9I11 "A sick god MUST be an idol, made in the image of what its maker thinks HE is."
T9I11 "And that is exactly what the ego DOES perceive in a Son of God; -- a sick god, self-created, self-sufficient, very vicious, and very vulnerable."
T9I13 "There are no idolaters in the Kingdom, but there is great appreciation for every Soul which God created, because of the calm knowledge that each one is part of Him."
T9I13 "God's Son knows no idols, but He DOES know His Father."
T9I13 "When you do not value yourself you become sick, but MY value of you can heal you, because the value of God's Son is one."
T9I14 "Peace came from God through me to YOU."
T9I14 "Yet every Son of God has the power to deny illusions ANYWHERE in the Kingdom, merely by denying them completely in himself."
T9I15 "I do not bring God's message with deception, and you will learn this as you learn that you ALWAYS receive as much as you ACCEPT."
T9I16 "God is not jealous of the gods you make, but YOU are."
T9I16 "You think they are your father, because you are projecting onto them the fearful fact that YOU MADE THEM TO REPLACE GOD."
T9I16 "But when they seem to speak to you, remember that NOTHING can replace God, and whatever replacements you have attempted ARE nothing."
T9I17 "You WILL hear the god you listen to."
T9I17 "You MADE the god of sickness, and BY making him, you made yourself ABLE to hear him."
T9I17 "If God has but one Son, there is but one God."
T9I18 "Only at the altar of God will you find peace, and this altar is in you, because God put it there."
T9I19 "You can give up the god of sickness for your brothers; in fact, you would HAVE to do so, if you give him up for yourself."
T9I19 "And if you accept him, you WILL bow down and worship him, because HE WAS MADE AS GOD's REPLACEMENT."
T9I19 "He is the belief that YOU CAN CHOOSE WHICH GOD IS REAL."
T9J2 "If God created you perfect, you ARE perfect."
T9J2 "GOD is not at war with the god of sickness which you made, but YOU are."
T9J2 "He is the symbol of willing AGAINST God, and you are afraid of him BECAUSE he cannot be reconciled with God's will."
T9J4 "If you perceive other gods, YOUR mind is split, and you will not be able to LIMIT the split, because the split IS the sign that you have removed part of your mind from God's Will, and this MEANS that it is out of control."
T9J5 "God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it."
T9J5 "The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His."
T9J5 "But God Himself has protected EVERYTHING He created BY His laws."
T9J6 "Creation is perfectly lawful, and the chaotic is without meaning, BECAUSE IT IS WITHOUT GOD."
T9J6 "YOU CANNOT DO WHAT GOD DID NOT INTEND, because what He did not intend DOES NOT HAPPEN."
T9J7 "Nothing but the laws of God has ever operated, and nothing except His Will will ever be."
T9J8 "When you have experienced the protection of God, the making of idols becomes inconceivable."
T9J8 "There are no strange images in the Mind of God, and what is not in His Mind CANNOT be in yours, because you are of One Mind, and that Mind belongs to HIM."
T9J8 "Peace is yours because God created you."
T9J9 "The miracle is the act of a Son of God who has laid aside all false gods, and who calls on his brothers to do likewise."
T9J9 "The power of one mind CAN shine into another, because all the lamps of God were lit by the same spark."
T9J10 "But God has kept the spark alive, so the rays can never be completely forgotten."
T9J10 "Put all your faith in it, and God Himself will answer you."
T9K1 "The rituals of the god of sickness are strange and very demanding."
T9K1 "Depression MEANS that you have foresworn God."
T9K1 "They do not realize that, to deny God, is to deny their own identity, and in this sense, the wages of sin IS death."
T9K2 "Do not forget, however, that to deny God will inevitably result in projection, and you will believe that others, AND NOT YOURSELF, have done this TO you."
T9K2 "It is the DENIAL of the spark that brings depression, and whenever you see your brothers WITHOUT it, you ARE denying God."
T9K3 "Allegiance to the denial of God is the ego's religion."
T9K3 "The god of sickness obviously demands the denial of health, because health is in direct opposition to its own survival."
T9K3 "Blasphemy, then, is SELF-destructive, not God destructive."
T9K3 "This IS the offering which your god demands, because having made him out of YOUR insanity, he IS an insane idea."
T9K3 "He has many forms, but though he may seem like many different things, he is but one idea;-- the denial of God."
T9K4 "Sickness and death entered the mind of God's Son against His Will."
T9K4 "The "attack on God" made His Son think he was fatherless, and out of his depression he made the god of depression."
T9K6 "Son of God, you have not sinned, but you have been much mistaken."
T9K6 "But this can be corrected, and God will help you, knowing that you could not sin against Him."
T9K7 "The love of God is in everything He created, for His Son is everywhere."
T9K7 "Look with peace upon your brothers, and God will come rushing into your heart, in gratitude for your gift to Him."
T9K8 "Do not look to the god of sickness for healing, but only to the God of love, for healing is the acknowledgment of Him."
T9K8 "Remember, though, that to do this IS blasphemy, for it means that you are looking without love on God and His Creation, from which He cannot be separated."
T9K8 "What is of God is His forever, and you ARE of God."
T9K9 "If you will accept yourself as God created you, you will be incapable of suffering."
T9K10 "You do not realize how much you have denied yourself, and how much God, in His love, would not have it so."
T9K10 "To interfere with you would be to attack HIMSELF, and God is not insane."
T9K10 "God will never cease to love His Son, and His Son will never cease to love Him."
T9K10 "That was the condition of His Son's Creation, fixed forever in the Mind of God."
T9K10 "God gave HIMSELF to you in your Creation, and His gifts ARE eternal."
T9K11 "Heaven waits for his return, for it was created as the dwelling place of God's Son."
T9K11 "God has given you the means for undoing what you have made."
T9K12 "If God knows His children as wholly sinless, it is blasphemous to perceive them as guilty."
T9K12 "If God knows His children as wholly without pain, it is blasphemous to perceive suffering anywhere."
T9K12 "If God knows his children to be wholly joyous, it is blasphemous to feel depressed."
T9K12 "If God created His Son perfect, that is how you must learn to see him, to learn of his reality."
T9K13 "Do not perceive ANYTHING God did not create, or you ARE denying Him."
T9K13 "You believe that the sick things which you have made are your real creations, because you believe that the sick images you perceive are the Sons of God."
T9K14 "Only if you ACCEPT the Fatherhood of God will you have anything, because His Fatherhood GAVE you everything."
T9K14 "As long as both appear to you to be desirable, the concept of choice, which is not of God, will remain with you."
T10A1 "Either God or the ego is insane."
T10A1 "Neither God nor the ego proposes a partial thought system."
T10A2 "The authority problem remains the ONLY source of perceived conflict, because the ego was MADE out of the wish of God's Son to father HIM."
T10B1 "You have made by projection, but God has created by extension."
T10B1 "The cornerstone of God's creation is YOU, for HIS thought system is light."
T10B2 "My brother, you are part of God and part of me."
T10B3 "For in this lies the beginning of knowledge; the foundation on which God will help you build again the thought system which you share WITH Him."
T10B3 "In whatever part of the mind of God's Son you restore this reality, you restore it to YOURSELF."
T10B3 "For you dwell in the Mind of God WITH your brother, for God Himself did not will to be alone."
T10B4 "There are no beginnings and no endings in God, Whose Universe is Himself."
T10B4 "Can you exclude yourself from the Universe, or from God, Who IS the Universe?"
T10B4 "Do you REALLY believe that part of God can be missing or lost to Him?"
T10B5 "If you were not part of God, His Will would not be unified."
T10B5 "If your place in His Mind cannot be filled by anyone EXCEPT you, and your filling it WAS your creation, WITHOUT you, there would be an empty place in God's Mind."
T10B6 "What holds for God holds for you."
T10B6 "If you believe YOU are absent from God, you WILL believe He is absent from you."
T10B7 "Infinity is meaningless WITHOUT you, and YOU are meaningless without God."
T10B7 "There IS no end to God and His Son, for we ARE the universe."
T10B7 "God is not incomplete, and He is not childless."
T10B8 "Look upon the glory of His creation, and you will learn what God has kept for YOU."
T10B8 "God has given you a place in His Mind which is yours forever."
T10B8 "Could YOU be alone there, if it was given you because GOD did not will to be alone?"
T10B8 "God's Mind cannot be lessened."
T10B9 "To give without limit is God's Will for you, because only this can bring you the joy which is His, and which He wills to share with YOU."
T10B9 "God is your heritage, because His one gift is Himself."
T10B10 "God willed to create, and your will is His."
T10B10 "God's Will was that you are His Son."
T10B10 "The reason you must ask what God's Will is in everything, is merely because It IS yours."
T10B11 "Ask him, therefore, what God's Will is for you, and He will tell you YOURS."
T10B11 "The projection of the ego makes it appear as if God's Will is OUTSIDE yourself, and therefore NOT YOURS."
T10B11 "In THIS interpretation, it IS possible for God's Will and yours to conflict."
T10B11 "God, then, may seem to demand of you what you do NOT want to give, and thus DEPRIVE you of what you want."
T10B11 "Would God, Who wants ONLY your will, be capable of this?"
T10B11 "Yet God's Son cannot will death for himself, because His Father is Life, and HIS SON IS LIKE HIM."
T10B12 "But it is immutable by God's Will AND YOURS, for otherwise His Will would not have been extended."
T10B12 "You are afraid to know God's Will, because you believe it is NOT yours."
T10B13 "He is the Voice for God, but never forget that God did not will to be alone."
T10B14 "God's Will is that His Son be One, and united with Him in His Oneness."
T10C1 "The Son of God HAS both Father and Son because he IS both Father and Son."
T10C2 "But when you attack ANY part of God and His Kingdom, your understanding is NOT perfect, and what YOU will is therefore lost to you."
T10C4 "Every miracle which you accomplish speaks to you of the Fatherhood of God."
T10C4 "Every healing thought which you ACCEPT, either FROM your brother or in your OWN mind, teaches you that you are God's Son."
T10C4 "But in every hurtful thought you hold, wherever you perceive it, lies the denial of God's Fatherhood and your Sonship."
T10C5 "You can only heal yourself, for only God's Son NEEDS healing."
T10C5 "What can the Son of God NOT accomplish with the Fatherhood of God in him?"
T10C7 "You can safely trust His patience, for He CANNOT leave a part of God."
T10C8 "You who have God MUST be as God, for HIS function became YOURS with His gift."
T10C8 "The Guest whom God sent you will teach you how to do this, if you but recognize the little spark, and are WILLING TO LET IT GROW."
T10C9 "Would you be hostage to the ego or host to God?"
T10C9 "Know, then, Who abides with you, merely by recognizing WHAT IS ALREADY THERE, and do not be satisfied with imaginary comforters, for the Comforter of God is in you."
T10D1 "Unless you have hurt yourselves, you could never suffer in ANY way, for that is not God's Will for His Son."
T10D1 "God is very quiet, for there is no conflict in Him."
T10D1 "But it ALWAYS attacks the Son of God, and the Son of God is YOU."
T10D2 "God's Son is indeed in need of comfort, for he knows not what he does, believing his will is not his own."
T10D2 "At home in God he is lonely, and amid all his brothers he is friendless."
T10D2 "Would God let this be real, if He did not will to be alone Himself?"
T10D2 "Oh my children, if you knew what God wills for you, your joy would be complete!"
T10D3 "When the light comes, and you have said, "God's Will is mine," you will see such beauty that you will KNOW it is not of you."
T10D3 "The bleak little world will vanish into nothingness, and your heart will be so filled with joy that it will leap into Heaven and into the presence of God."
T10D3 "But I CAN tell you, and remind you often, that what God wills for Himself He wills for YOU, and what He wills for you IS yours."
T10D4 "Yours is the way of pain, of which God knows nothing."
T10D4 "But the dark journey is not the way of God's Son."
T10D4 "Walk in light, and do not see the dark companions, for they are not fit companions for the Son of God, who was created OF Light and IN Light."
T10D5 "God hides nothing from His Son, even though he would hide himself."
T10D5 "Yet the Son of God cannot hide his glory, for God wills him to be glorious, and GAVE him the Light that shines in him."
T10D5 "You will never lose your way, for God leads you."
T10D6 "Do not be deceived by the dark comforters, and never let them enter the mind of God's Son, for they have no place in His temple."
T10D6 "Only God's Comforter CAN comfort you."
T10D6 "But be holy in the Presence of God, or you will not know that you are there."
T10D6 "For what is unlike God cannot enter His Mind, because it was not in His Thought, and therefore does not belong to Him."
T10D7 "You cannot enter God's Presence with the dark companions beside you, but you also cannot enter alone."
T10D8 "God blessed His Son forever."
T10D8 "Time cannot separate you from God, if you use it on BEHALF of the eternal."
T10E1 "As God's Creation it is yours, and belonging to you, it is His."
T10E1 "But if you hate part of your own Soul, ALL your understanding is lost, because you are looking on what God creates AS YOURSELF without love."
T10E2 "Could you try to make God homeless, and know YOU are at home?"
T10E2 "God's laws hold ONLY for your protection, and they never hold in vain."
T10E2 "What you experience, when you deny your father, is still for your protection, for the power of your will cannot be lessened without the intervention of God AGAINST it, and any limitation on YOUR power is NOT the Will of God."
T10E2 "Therefore, look ONLY to the power that God gave you to save you, remembering that it is yours BECAUSE it is His, and join with your brothers in His peace."
T10E3 "Every altar to God is part of your Soul, because the Light He created is One with Him."
T10E3 "That is the law of God, for the protection of the wholeness of His Son."
T10E6 "YOU CANNOT ENTER GOD's PRESENCE IF YOU ATTACK HIS SON."
T10E6 "Christ is at God's altar, waiting to welcome His Son."
T10E7 "The door is NOT barred, and it is impossible for you to be unable to enter the place where God would have you be."
T10E7 "God is my Life and YOURS, and NOTHING is denied by God to His Son."
T10E7 "At God's altar, Christ waits for the restoration of Himself in YOU."
T10E8 "God knows His Son as wholly blameless as Himself, and He is approached through the appreciation of His Son."
T10E8 "For Christ is the Son of God, who lives in his Creator, and shines with His glory."
T10E8 "Christ is the extension of the love and the loveliness of God, as perfect as his Creator, and at peace with Him."
T10E8 "Blessed is the Son of God, whose radiance is of His Father, and whose glory He wills to share as His Father shares it with Him."
T10E9 "Peace be unto you who rest in God, and in whom the whole Sonship rests."
T10F4 "But the truth is very simple; ALL POWER IS OF GOD."
T10F6 "We once said that to will contrary to God is wishful thinking, and not real willing."
T10F6 "The real conflict you experience, then, is between the ego's idle wishes and the Will of God, WHICH YOU SHARE."
T10F6 "Your whole creative function lies in your complete dependence on God, Whose function He shares WITH you."
T10F7 "The belief in EGO autonomy is costing you the knowledge of your dependence on God, IN WHICH YOUR FREEDOM LIES."
T10F7 "The ego sees ALL dependency as threatening, and has twisted even your longing for God into a means of establishing ITSELF."
T10F10 "YOUR recognition that whatever seems to separate you from God is ONLY fear, regardless of the form it takes, and quite apart from HOW THE EGO WANTS YOU TO EXPERIENCE IT, is therefore the basic ego threat."
T10F11 "If the ego's goal of autonomy COULD be accomplished GOD's purpose could be DEFEATED, and this IS impossible."
T10F11 "According to the ego's teaching, ITS goal CAN be accomplished, and GOD's Purpose can NOT."
T10F11 "According to the Holy Spirit's teaching, ONLY God's Purpose IS accomplishment, and it is ALREADY accomplished."
T10F12 "God is as dependent on you as you are on Him, because HIS autonomy ENCOMPASSES yours, and is therefore incomplete WITHOUT it."
T10F12 "But it is given YOU to know that GOD's function IS yours, and happiness CANNOT be found apart from your joint will."
T10F13 "Yet God's Son is not insane, and CANNOT believe it."
T10F13 "But the sane KNOW that only attack COULD produce fear, from which the love of God COMPLETELY protects them."
T10F18 "Accept what God does NOT deny, and HE will demonstrate its truth."
T10F18 "The witnesses for God stand in His Light and behold what HE created."
T10F18 "Their silence is the sign that they have beheld God's Son, and in the Presence of Christ, THEY need demonstrate nothing, for Christ speaks to them of Himself and of His Father."
T10G3 "Let the Christ in you interpret FOR you, and do not try to limit what you see by narrow little beliefs which are unworthy of God's Son."
T10G3 "For until Christ comes into His Own, the Son of God WILL see himself as fatherless."
T10G4 "You live in me because you live in God."
T10G4 "And can you perceive it in yourself and NOT perceive it in God?"
T10G4 "This is as true now as it will ever be, for the resurrection is the Will of God, Which knows no time and no exceptions."
T10G4 "For we ascend unto the Father together, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, for such is the nature of God's Son as His Father created him."
T10G5 "Do not underestimate the power of the devotion of God's Son, nor the power of the god he worships over him."
T10G5 "For he places HIMSELF at the altar of his god, whether it be the god he made or the God Who created him."
T10G5 "That is why his slavery is as complete as his freedom, for he will obey ONLY the god he accepts."
T10G5 "The god of the crucifixion demands that he crucify, and his worshippers obey."
T10G5 "In his name they crucify THEMSELVES, believing that the power of the Son of God is born of sacrifice and pain."
T10G5 "The God of the resurrection demands nothing, for He does not will to TAKE AWAY."
T10G6 "The freedom to leave behind everything that hurts you and humbles you and frightens you cannot be thrust upon you, but it CAN be offered you through the grace of God."
T10G6 "And you can ACCEPT it by His grace, for God IS gracious to His Son, accepting him without question as His Own."
T10G6 "Guard them in their resurrection, for otherwise you will not awake in God, safely surrounded by what is yours forever."
T10G7 "You will not find peace until you have removed the nails from the hands of God's Son and taken the last thorn from his forehead."
T10G7 "The Love of God surrounds His Son whom the god of the crucifixion condemns."
T10G7 "For the UNDOING of the crucifixion of God's Son is the work of the redemption, in which everyone has a part of equal value."
T10G7 "God does not judge His blameless Son."
T10G8 "Yet you CANNOT crucify God's Son, for the Will of God cannot die."
T10G8 "His Son HAS BEEN redeemed from his own crucifixion, and you cannot assign to death whom God has given eternal life."
T10G8 "While you perceive the Son of God as crucified you are asleep."
T10G10 "God's Son IS saved."
T10G10 "There is no order of difficulty in miracles because all of God's Sons are of equal value, and their equality is their Oneness."
T10G10 "The whole power of God is in every part of Him, and nothing contradictory to His Will is either great or small."
T10G10 "To God ALL things are possible."
T10H1 "God created ONLY the eternal, and everything YOU see is perishable."
T10H1 "Every loving thought that the Son of God ever had is eternal."
T10H4 "You do not know the difference between what you have made, and what God created, and so you do not know the difference between what you have made, and what YOU have created."
T10H4 "You CAN know God, because it is His Will to BE known."
T10H7 "Yet God will not refuse the answer He GAVE you."
T10H8 "YOU made the problem which God HAS answered."
T10H9 "Yet only by asking will you learn that nothing that is of God demands ANYTHING of you."
T10H9 "God GIVES; He does NOT take."
T10H9 "For what is yours IS everything, and you share it WITH God."
T10H10 "Little children of God, you do not understand your Father."
T10H10 "Nothing of God will enslave His Son, whom He created free and whose freedom is protected by HIS Being."
T10H11 "Blessed are you who will ask the truth of God without fear, for only thus can you learn that His answer IS the release from fear."
T10H11 "Beautiful Child of God, you are asking only for what I promised you."
T10H11 "God's Sons have nothing which they do not share."
T10H11 "Ask for truth of any Son of God, and you have asked it of me."
T10H11 "Ask anything of God's Son, and His Father will answer you, for Christ is not deceived in His Father and His Father is not deceived in Him."
T10H12 "Christ is the Son of God Who is in no way separate from His Father, Whose EVERY thought is as loving as the Thought of His Father, by which He was created."
T10H12 "Be not deceived in God's Son, for thereby you MUST be deceived in yourself."
T10H13 "Only loving thoughts are recognized, and because no-one is without YOUR help, the Help of God goes with YOU everywhere."
T10H13 "What problems will not disappear in the presence of God's answer?"
T10H14 "Be not deceived in God's Son, for he is one with himself, and One with his Father."
T10H15 "If what you perceive offends you, you are offended in YOURSELF, and are condemning God's Son, whom God condemneth not."
T10H15 "Let the Holy Spirit remove ALL offense of God's Son against himself and perceive no-one but through HIS guidance, for He would save you from ALL condemnation."
T10H15 "Accept His healing power, and use it for all He sends you, for He wills to heal the Son of God in whom He is not deceived."
T10H18 "For if God is not deceived in you, you can be deceived only in YOURSELF."
T10H18 "But you can learn the truth of yourself of the Holy Spirit, Who will teach you that, as part of God, deceit in YOU is impossible."
T11B4 "Deny him YOUR help, and you will NOT perceive God's answer to YOU."
T11B5 "How simple, then, is God's plan for salvation."
T11B6 "But hear his call for the help of God, and you will recognize your OWN need for the Father."
T11B6 "For you will recognize God's answer as you want it to be, and if you want it in truth, it will be truly yours."
T11B6 "For the sake of YOUR need, then, hear every call for help as what it is, so God can answer YOU."
T11C5 "If you give no power to the fog to obscure the light, it HAS none, for it has power ONLY because the Son of God gave power TO it."
T11C5 "He must HIMSELF withdraw that power, remembering that all power is of God."
T11C5 "But YOUR remembering is HIS, for God cannot be remembered alone."
T11C5 "To perceive the healing of your brother as the healing of yourself, is thus the way to remember God."
T11C5 "For you forgot your brothers WITH Him, and God's answer to your forgetting is but the way to remember."
T11C13 "YOU STILL WILL WHAT GOD WILLS, and no nightmare can defeat a Child of God in his purpose."
T11C13 "For your purpose was given you by God, and you must accomplish it, BECAUSE it is His Will."
T11C17 "Whatever is revealed to Him that is not of God, is gone."
T11D4 "Poverty is of the ego, and never of God."
T11D7 "If only the loving thoughts of God's Son ARE the world's reality, the real world MUST be IN HIS MIND."
T11D9 "Long ago we said that God so loved the world that He gave it TO His only-begotten Son."
T11D9 "God DOES love the real world, and those who perceive its reality CANNOT see the world of death."
T11D9 "God gave you the real world in exchange for the one you made, out of your split mind, and which IS the symbol of death."
T11D9 "For if you could REALLY separate yourselves from the Mind of God, you WOULD die."
T11D11 "The altar of God, where Christ abideth, is there."
T11D12 "From this place, where God and His Son dwell in peace, and where you are welcome, you will look out in peace, and behold the world truly."
T11D12 "But to find the place, you must relinquish your investment in the world as YOU have projected it, allowing the Holy Spirit to project the real world TO you, from the altar of God."
T11E4 "For He will never deceive God's Son, Whom He loves with the love of the Father."
T11E6 "There can BE no disinherited parts of the Sonship, for God is whole, and all his extensions are like Him."
T11F12 "Your learning POTENTIAL, properly understood, is limitless, BECAUSE IT WILL LEAD YOU TO GOD."
T11F12 "For it is YOUR will to learn aright, and NOTHING can oppose the will of God's Son."
T11G2 "God is in your memory BECAUSE of Him."
T11G4 "He would awaken them from the sleep of forgetting, to the remembering of God."
T11G5 "The Holy Spirit keeps the vision of Christ for every Son of God who sleeps."
T11G5 "In His sight, the Son of God is perfect, and He longs to share His vision WITH you."
T11G5 "He will SHOW you the real world, because God GAVE you Heaven."
T11G7 "Every Child of God is one in Christ, for his Being is in Christ, as Christ's is in God."
T11G8 "When this has been accomplished, perception and knowledge have become so similar that they share the unification of the Laws of God."
T11G9 "At the altar of God, the holy perception of God's Son becomes so enlightened that light streams into it, and the Spirit of God's Son shines in the Mind of the Father, and becomes one with it."
T11G9 "Very gently does God shine upon Himself, loving the extension of Himself which is His Son."
T11G9 "The world has no purpose, as it blends into the Purpose of God."
T11G9 "There, the Redeemer and the redeemed join in perfect love of God, and of each other."
T11G9 "Heaven is your home, and being in God, it must ALSO be in you."
T11H2 "In every Child of God His blessing lies, and in your blessing of the Children of God is His blessing to YOU."
T11H4 "God shares His function with you in Heaven, and the Holy Spirit shares HIS with you on earth."
T11H11 "Yet you COULD not have seen reality, for the reality of your mind is the loveliest of God's Creations."
T11H11 "Coming only from God, its power and grandeur could only bring you peace, IF YOU REALLY LOOKED UPON IT."
T11H12 "And you will see me as you look within, and we will look upon the world as God created it together."
T11H14 "The death penalty is the ego's ultimate goal, for it fully believes that you are a criminal, as deserving of death as God knows you are deserving of life."
T11H15 "The ego is not a traitor to God to Whom treachery is impossible."
T11H15 "For as long as you feel guilty, you are listening to the voice of the ego, which tells you that you HAVE been treacherous to God, AND THEREFORE DESERVE DEATH."
T11H15 "And from what you want God does NOT save you."
T11I1 "Do you REALLY believe that you can kill the Son of God?"
T11I2 "God's Son is as safe as his Father, for the Son knows his Father's protection and CANNOT fear."
T11I3 "The definition of reality is God's, not yours."
T11I4 "For no one can forget what God Himself placed in his memory."
T11I4 "For God would reunite you with yourself, and did not abandon you in your seeming distress."
T11I5 "But the memory of God cannot shine in a mind which has MADE it invisible, and WANTS TO KEEP IT SO."
T11I5 "For the memory of God can dawn only in a mind that wills to remember, and that has relinquished the insane desire to control reality."
T11I6 "Son of God, be not content with nothing."
T11I6 "God could not offer His Son what has no value, nor could His Son receive it."
T11I7 "God's Son CAN be seen, because His Vision is shared."
T11I8 "And you who share God's Being with Him, could never be content WITHOUT reality."
T11I8 "What God did not give you has no power over you, and the attraction of love for love remains irresistible."
T11I9 "The real world was given you by God, in loving exchange for the world YOU made, and which you SEE."
T11J1 "The acceptance of guilt into the mind of God's Son was the beginning of the separation, as the acceptance of the Atonement is its end."
T11J2 "Not one of them but has thought that God is cruel."
T11J3 "If this were the real world, God WOULD be cruel."
T11J3 "For if it did, attack WOULD be salvation, and this is the ego's interpretation, NOT God's."
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 "Guilt hides Christ from your sight, for it is the denial of the blamelessness of God's Son."
T11J6 "In this strange world which you have made, the Son of God HAS sinned."
T11J6 "Without guilt the ego HAS no life, and God's Son IS without guilt."
T11J7 "As long as you believe the Son of God is guilty, you will walk along this carpet, believing that it leads to death."
T11J8 "The journey which the Son of God has set HIMSELF is foolish indeed."
T11J8 "He has ALWAYS undone everything unworthy of the Son of God, for such was His mission, given BY God."
T11J8 "And what God gives HAS always been."
T11J9 "You will see me as you learn the Son of God is guiltless."
T11J9 "For the Son of God is guiltless NOW, and the brightness of his purity shines untouched forever in God's Mind."
T11J9 "God's Son will ALWAYS be as he was created."
T11J10 "You can condemn only yourself, and by doing so, you cannot know that you are God's Son."
T11J11 "The Son of God, who sleepeth not, has kept faith with his Father FOR you."
T11J11 "For God waits not for His Son in time, being forever unwilling to be without him."
T11J11 "Let the holiness of God's Son shine away the cloud of guilt that darkens your mind, and by accepting his purity AS yours, learn of him that it IS yours."
T11J13 "But the guarantee of your continuity is God's, not the ego's."
T11J13 "Accepting the guiltlessness of the Son of God AS YOURS is therefore God's way of reminding you of His Son, and what he is in truth."
T11J13 "For God has never condemned His Son, and being guiltless, he IS eternal."
T11J15 "As He looks upon the guiltless Son of God, he KNOWS this is true."
T11J15 "You, then, ARE saved BECAUSE God's Son is guiltless."
T12A1 "For guilt stands in the way of your remembering God, Whose pull is so strong that YOU cannot resist it."
T12A2 "But you have no idea that you are failing the Son of God, by seeing HIM as guilty."
T12B1 "For in that dark and secret place is the realization that you have betrayed God's Son, by condemning him to death."
T12B1 "For the ego's destructive urge is so intense, that nothing short of the crucifixion of God's Son can ultimately satisfy it."
T12B1 "It does not know who the Son of God IS, because it is blind."
T12B4 "When it was confronted with the REAL guiltlessness of God's Son, it DID attempt to kill him."
T12B4 "And the reason it gave was that guiltlessness is blasphemous to God."
T12B4 "To the ego, THE EGO IS GOD, and guiltlessness MUST be interpreted AS THE FINAL GUILT WHICH FULLY JUSTIFIES MURDER."
T12B7 "For the redeemed son of man IS the guiltless Son of God, and to recognize HIM, IS your redemption."
T12C2 "Under the ego's dark foundation is the memory of God, and it is of THIS that you are really afraid."
T12C3 "You would be willing to look upon your savage wish to kill God's Son, IF YOU DID NOT BELIEVE THAT IT SAVES YOU FROM LOVE."
T12C3 "For still deeper than the ego's foundation, and MUCH stronger than IT will ever be, is your intense and burning love of God, AND HIS FOR YOU."
T12C4 "The Holy Spirit, then, seems to be ATTACKING YOUR FORTRESS, for you would SHUT OUT GOD, and He does not will to BE excluded."
T12C5 "You have built your whole insane belief system, because you think you would be HELPLESS in God's Presence."
T12C5 "YOU THINK YOU HAVE MADE A WORLD THAT GOD WOULD DESTROY."
T12C6 "You would rather be slaves of the crucifixion, than Sons of God in redemption."
T12C6 "You are more afraid of God than of the ego, and love cannot enter where it is not welcome."
T12C7 "Not all the tricks and games that you have offered it can heal it, for HERE is the REAL crucifixion of God's Son."
T12C8 "For He will heal every little thought that you have kept to hurt you, and cleanse it of its littleness, restoring it to the magnitude of God."
T12C9 "For grandeur is the RIGHT of God's Son, and no illusions can satisfy him, or save him from what he IS."
T12C11 "You were at peace until you asked for special favor, and God did not give it."
T12C11 "And the peace of God's Son was shattered, for he no longer understood his Father."
T12C12 "God did not ALLOW this to happen."
T12C13 "God did not do this to you."
T12E6 "God calls you and you do not hear, for you are preoccupied with your own voice."
T12E8 "For you will love them, and by drawing nigh unto them, you will draw them to YOURSELF, perceiving them as witnesses to your reality, which you share with GOD."
T12E8 "For every Son of God is given you, to whom God gave HIMSELF."
T12E8 "And it is God Whom you must offer them, to recognize His gift to YOU."
T12E11 "Beyond your darkest dreams, He sees God's guiltless Son within you, shining in perfect radiance, which is undimmed by your dreams."
T12F3 "For the cloud which obscures God's Son to you IS the past, and if you would have it past AND GONE, you must NOT SEE IT NOW."
T12F8 "God's guiltless Son is ONLY light."
T12F8 "The holy light that shines forth from God's Son is the witness that his light is of his Father."
T12F13 "God's Son is still as loving as his Father."
T12G5 "To give this sad world over, and exchange your errors for the peace of God, is but YOUR will."
T12G5 "And Christ will ALWAYS offer you the Will of God, in recognition that you share it WITH Him."
T12G6 "It is God's Will that nothing touch His Son except Himself, and nothing else comes nigh unto him."
T12G6 "He is as safe from pain as God Himself, Who watches over him in everything."
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."
T12G7 "The peace of God passeth your understanding ONLY in the past."
T12G7 "God loves His Son forever, and His Son RETURNS his Father's love forever."
T12G7 "But this one thing is ALWAYS yours, being the gift of God unto His Son."
T12G7 "Your ONE reality was GIVEN you, and BY it God created you as one with Him."
T12G12 "God's Son is not a traveler through OUTER worlds."
T12G13 "Content yourselves with what you will as surely KEEP, and be not restless, for you undertake a quiet journey to the peace of God, where He would have you be in quietness."
T12G14 "We walk together on the way to quietness that is the gift of God."
T12G15 "The sound of it will banish sorrow from the mind of God's most holy Son, where it cannot abide."
T12G15 "Thus does the Son of God give thanks unto his Father for his purity."
T13A2 "YOU are an aspect of knowledge, being in the Mind of God, Who KNOWS you."
T13B1 "Yet the last step must be taken by God, because the last step in your redemption, which SEEMS to be in the future, WAS accomplished by God in your creation."
T13B1 "Yet only God can gather them together by crowning them AS ONE with the final gift of eternity."
T13B2 "He is a thought of God, and God has GIVEN Him to you, because He has NO thoughts He does not share."
T13B3 "Every miracle you offer to the Son of God, is but the true perception of one ASPECT of the whole."
T13B4 "And every miracle you do contains them all, as every aspect of reality you see blends quietly into the one reality of God."
T13B4 "The only miracle that ever was, is God's most holy Son, created in the One Reality that is his Father."
T13B5 "For miracles, offered the Son of God through the Holy Spirit, attune YOU to reality."
T13B6 "Unite with me, under the holy banner of His teaching, and, as we grow in strength, the power of God's Son will move in us, and we will leave no-one untouched and no-one left alone."
T13B6 "And suddenly, time will be over, and we will all unite in the Eternity of God the Father."
T13B7 "YOU are the witnesses to the Fatherhood of God, and He has given you the power to create the witnesses to YOURS, which is as HIS."
T13B7 "The miracle which God created is perfect, as are the miracles which YOU created in His Name."
T13B8 "God knows it, but YOU do not, and so you do not SHARE His witness TO it."
T13B8 "God waits your witness to His Son, and to Himself."
T13B8 "They witness to what you do not know, and, as they reach the gates of Heaven, God will open them."
T13C1 "Between the future and the past, the laws of God must intervene, if you would free yourselves."
T13C4 "You do NOT believe the Son of God is guiltless, because you see the past, and see HIM not."
T13C5 "The idea that the guiltless Son of God can attack himself, and MAKE him guilty, IS insane."
T13C6 "In every condemnation that you offer the Son of God, lies the conviction of your OWN guilt."
T13C6 "Remember always that it is impossible to condemn the Son of God IN PART."
T13C8 "Can YOU see guilt where God KNOWS there is perfect innocence?"
T13D7 "The Holy Spirit does what God would have Him do, and has ALWAYS done so."
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."
T13D9 "His will is like His Father's, and He offers mercy to every Child of God, as He would have YOU do."
T13D9 "There is no other way to look within, and see the light of love shining as steadily, and as surely, as God Himself has always loved His Son."
T13D10 "Your guilt is without reason, because it is not in the Mind of God, where YOU are."
T13D10 "And in Christ's vision He would show you the perfect purity that is forever within God's Son."
T13D10 "You cannot enter into REAL relationship with ANY of God's Sons, unless you love them all, and EQUALLY."
T13D11 "You can love ONLY as God loves."
T13D11 "No-one who condemns a brother, can see HIMSELF as guiltless in the peace of God."
T13D11 "To him I say, "Behold the Son of God, and look upon his purity, and be still."
T13D13 "The difference is that I love ONLY what God loves WITH me, and, because of this, I treasure you beyond the value that you set on yourselves, even unto the worth that God has placed upon you."
T13D13 "I thank the Father for your loveliness, and for the many gifts that you will let me offer to the Kingdom, in honor of its wholeness that is of God."
T13D14 "God loves you."
T13D16 "God would not have His Son embattled, and so His Son's imagined "enemy," which he made, is TOTALLY unreal."
T13D16 "Gladness and joy belong to God for your release, because YOU made it not."
T13E1 "Value is where God placed it, and the value of what God esteems CANNOT BE JUDGED, for it HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED."
T13E1 "In Heaven is everything God values, and nothing else."
T13E2 "How is this possible, when His mission is of God?"
T13E3 "You whose minds are darkened by doubt and guilt, remember this; God gave the Holy Spirit TO you, and gave HIM the mission to REMOVE all doubt, and every trace of guilt, that His dear Son has laid upon himself."
T13E3 "Nothing can prevent what God would HAVE accomplished from accomplishment."
T13E3 "Whatever your reactions to the Holy Spirit's voice may be, whatever voice you choose to listen to, whatever strange thoughts may occur to you, God's Will IS done."
T13E5 "THE WILL OF GOD CAN FAIL IN NOTHING."
T13E5 "Have faith in only this one thing, and it will be sufficient; God wills you be in Heaven, and nothing can keep you FROM it, or IT from you."
T13E5 "They will not prevail against the peace God wills for you."
T13E5 "The Holy Spirit WILL restore your sanity, because insanity is NOT the Will of God."
T13E5 "You will NOT keep what God would have removed, because it breaks communication with you, with whom He would communicate."
T13E6 "The communication link which God Himself placed within you, joining your minds with His, CANNOT be broken."
T13E6 "You may believe you WANT it broken, and this belief DOES interfere with the deep peace, in which the sweet and constant communication which God would SHARE with you, is known."
T13E7 "God willed you Heaven, and will ALWAYS will you nothing else."
T13E7 "There is no chance that Heaven will not be yours, for God is sure, and what He wills is sure as He is."
T13E7 "Salvation is as sure as God."
T13E7 "Learn that even the darkest nightmare that disturbed the mind of God's sleeping Son, holds no power over him."
T13E7 "God watches over him, and light surrounds him."
T13E8 "Can God's Son lose himself in dreams, when God has placed WITHIN him the glad call to awaken and be glad?"
T13E8 "But the will of God must be accepted AS your will, to KNOW it."
T13E9 "Failure is of the ego, NOT of God."
T13F4 "That is why God placed the Holy Spirit IN you, where YOU placed the dream."
T13F4 "The thoughts which the mind of God's Son projects, HAVE all the power that he gives them."
T13F4 "The thoughts he shares with God are BEYOND his belief, but those HE made ARE his beliefs."
T13G5 "Like God, He KNOWS it to be true."
T13G9 "God is everywhere, and His Son is IN Him WITH everything."
T13H3 "Say, therefore, to yourself, gently, but with the conviction born of the love of God and of His Son: What I experience I will make manifest."
T13H3 "Let me bring peace to God's Son from his Father."
T13H6 "No penalty is ever asked of God's Son, except BY himself and OF himself."
T13H6 "The joy of learning darkness has no power over the Son of God, is the happy lesson the Holy Spirit teaches, and would have YOU teach WITH Him."
T13H7 "No-one can hurt the Son of God."
T13H8 "God is the ONLY Cause, and guilt is NOT of Him."
T13H8 "Teach no-one he has hurt you, for, if you do, you teach YOURSELF that what is NOT of God, HAS POWER OVER YOU."
T13H8 "You will learn communication with this Oneness ONLY when you learn to DENY the causeless, and accept the Cause of God as YOURS."
T13H8 "The power that God has given to His Son IS his, and nothing else can His Son see, or choose to look upon, without imposing on HIMSELF the penalty of guilt, IN PLACE of all the happy teaching the Holy Spirit would gladly offer him."
T13H9 "No thought of God's Son CAN be separate, or isolated in its effects."
T13H11 "He will never ask what you have done to make you worthy of the gift of God."
T13H11 "Instead, accept His answer, for He KNOWS you are worthy of everything God wills FOR you."
T13H11 "Do not try to escape the gift of God, which He so freely, and so gladly offers you."
T13H11 "He offers you but what God gave Him FOR you."
T13H11 "GOD KNOWS THAT YOU ARE."
T13H11 "NOTHING can shake God's conviction of the perfect purity of everything that He created, for it IS wholly pure."
T13H12 "Peace abides in every mind that quietly accepts the plan that GOD has set for his Atonement, RELINQUISHING HIS OWN."
T13H12 "The One Who knows the plan, of God which God would have you follow, can teach you what it IS."
T13H12 "You have no other "enemy," and against this strange distortion of the purity of the Son of God, the Holy Spirit is your ONLY friend."
T13H13 "WITH Him, you will not fail to learn what God wills FOR you IS your will."
T13H13 "Salvation is of Him to Whom God GAVE it FOR you."
T13H13 "Forget HIM not, and He will make EVERY decision for you, for YOUR Salvation and the peace of God in you."
T13H14 "Seek not to appraise the worth of God's Son, whom He created holy, for to do so is TO EVALUATE HIS FATHER, and judge AGAINST Him."
T13H14 "God's Spirit teaches only that the "sin" of SELF replacement on the throne of God is NOT a source of guilt."
T13H14 "Never forget the Love of God, Who HAS remembered you."
T13H15 "For His decisions are reflections of WHAT GOD KNOWS ABOUT YOU, and in this light, error of ANY kind becomes impossible."
T13I1 "Yet truth is offered FIRST, to be received, even as God gave it first to His Son."
T13I1 "The first in time means nothing, but the First in Eternity is God the Father, Who is both First and One."
T13I2 "This state, and only this, must YOU attain with God beside you."
T13I4 "For, in the end, whatever form it takes, your guilt arises from your failure to fulfill your function in God's Mind with ALL OF YOURS."
T13I4 "God breaks no barriers; neither did He MAKE them."
T13I4 "God will not fail, nor ever has, in anything."
T13I5 "Decide that God is right, and YOU are wrong, about yourself."
T13I5 "FAIL NOT YOURSELF, but instead, offer to God AND YOU His blameless Son."
T13I5 "For this small gift of appreciation FOR His love, God will Himself exchange your gift for HIS."
T13I6 "Leave ALL decisions to the One Who speaks for God, and for your function as He KNOWS it."
T13I6 "So will He teach you to remove the awful burden you have laid upon yourself, by loving not the Son of God, and trying to teach him guilt INSTEAD of love."
T13I6 "Give up this frantic and insane attempt, which cheats you of the joy of living with your God and Father, and awaking gladly to His Love and Holiness, which join together as truth in YOU, making you One with Him."
T13I7 "When you have learned how to decide WITH God, ALL decisions become as easy and as right as breathing."
T14A1 "Unless you are guiltless you cannot know God, Whose Will is that you know Him."
T14A1 "Accepting His Son as guilty is denial of the Father so complete, that knowledge is swept away from recognition, in the very mind where God Himself has placed it."
T14A2 "You who have thrown your selves away, and valued God so little, hear me speak for Him, and for yourselves."
T14A3 "Atonement teaches you the true condition of the Son of God."
T14B1 "God can communicate ONLY to the Holy Spirit in your mind, because only He shares the knowledge of what you are WITH God."
T14B1 "And only the Holy Spirit can answer God for YOU, for only He knows what God IS."
T14B1 "Everything ELSE, that YOU have placed within your mind, CANNOT exist, for what is not in communication with the Mind of God, has never been."
T14B1 "Communication with God is Life."
T14B2 "The only part of your mind that has reality, is the part that links you still with God."
T14B2 "Would you have ALL of it transformed into a radiant message of God's Love, to share with all the lonely ones, who have denied Him with you?"
T14B2 "GOD MAKES THIS POSSIBLE."
T14B2 "Listen to the Holy Spirit, and to God through Him."
T14B2 "There IS no guilt in you, for God is blessed in His Son, as the Son is blessed in Him."
T14B3 "Each one of you has a special part to play in the Atonement, but the message given to each to share is always the same; GOD's SON IS GUILTLESS."
T14B3 "The burden of guilt is heavy, but God would not have you bound by it."
T14B3 "His gentleness is yours, and all the love you share with God, He holds in trust for you."
T14B4 "Who can condemn whom God has blessed?"
T14B4 "There is nothing in the Mind of God that does not share his shining innocence."
T14B4 "The happy learners of the Atonement become the teachers of the innocence that is the RIGHT of all that God created."
T14B5 "The inheritance of the Kingdom is the right of God's Son, given him in his creation."
T14B5 "Never allow purity to remain hidden, but shine away the heavy veils of guilt, within which the Son of God has hidden himself from his own sight."
T14B7 "Each effort made on its behalf is offered to the single purpose of RELEASE from guilt, to the eternal glory of God and His creation."
T14B7 "And every teaching that points to this points straight to Heaven, and to the peace of God."
T14B7 "The power of God Himself supports this teaching, and GUARANTEES its limitless results"
T14B8 "You will not see yourself BEYOND the power of God if you teach only this."
T14B8 "You will NOT be exempt from the effect of this most holy lesson, which seeks but to restore what is the right of God's creation."
T14B9 "Within its holy circle, is everyone whom God created as His Son."
T14B9 "The power of God draws everyone to its safe embrace of love and union."
T14B10 "Restore to God His Son, as He created him, by teaching him his innocence."
T14B11 "The power of love is in His gentleness, which is of God and therefore cannot crucify, nor suffer crucifixion."
T14B11 "And everything you give to God IS yours."
T14C5 "He KNOWS you are not separate from God, but He perceives much in your mind that lets you THINK you are."
T14C8 "There are no hidden chambers in God's Temple."
T14C8 "No-one can fail to come where God has called him, if he close not the door himself upon His Father's welcome."
T14D3 "Yet it IS true, because GOD knows it."
T14D3 "To God, unknowing is impossible."
T14D5 "God knows it not."
T14D6 "His task is mighty, but the power of God is with Him."
T14D7 "Do not delay yourselves in your return to peace, by wondering how He can fulfill what God has given Him to do."
T14D9 "Sharing perception with Him Whom God has given you, teaches you how to RECOGNIZE what you see."
T14D9 "God has one Purpose, which He shares with you."
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."
T14D9 "All honor to you through Him, and through Him unto God."
T14D10 "In the darkness you have obscured the glory God gave you, and the power that He bestowed upon His guiltless Son."
T14D10 "Behind the dark doors which you have closed lies nothing, BECAUSE nothing CAN obscure the gift of God."
T14D10 "It is the CLOSING of the doors, that interferes with recognition of the power of God that shines in you."
T14D11 "To what He promised God, He is wholly faithful, for He shared WITH God the promise that was given to Him to share with YOU."
T14D11 "No altar stands to God WITHOUT His Son."
T14D11 "Can you offer guilt to God?"
T14D12 "You know not God, because you know not this."
T14D12 "And yet you DO know God, and ALSO this."
T14D12 "He shines not in division, but in the meeting-place where God, UNITED with His Son, speaks to His Son THROUGH Him."
T14D12 "All interference in the communication that God Himself wills with His Son is quite impossible here."
T14D13 "He will surely lead you to where God and His Son await your recognition."
T14D13 "God's glory and His Son's BELONG to you in truth."
T14D14 "Where God is, there are YOU."
T14D14 "Nothing can change the knowledge GIVEN you by God into UNknowing."
T14D14 "Everything God created KNOWS its Creator."
T14D15 "And Heaven remains the Will of God for YOU."
T14D15 "Here, your meager offerings are BROUGHT TOGETHER with the gift of God, and only what is worthy of the Father will be accepted by the Son, for whom it was intended."
T14D15 "To whom God gives Himself, He IS given."
T14E1 "The bringing together of truth and illusion, OF THE EGO AND GOD, is the Holy Spirit's only function."
T14E2 "Bringing the ego to God, is but to bring error to truth, where it stands corrected, because it is the OPPOSITE of what it meets, and is undone because the CONTRADICTION can no longer stand."
T14E3 "You are not frail, with God beside you."
T14E3 "The Atonement OFFERS YOU GOD."
T14E3 "God has not left His altar, though His worshippers placed other gods upon it."
T14E4 "The graciousness of God will take them gently in, and cover all their sense of pain and loss, with the immortal assurance of their Father's Love."
T14E4 "For God is Life, and they abide IN Life."
T14E5 "But no reflections of the images of other gods must dim the mirror that would hold God's reflection in it."
T14E5 "Earth can reflect Heaven or hell; God or the ego."
T14E5 "God will shine upon it of Himself."
T14E6 "The reflection of God NEEDS no interpretation."
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."
T14E8 "God is no image, and His creations, as part of Him, hold Him in them in truth."
T14F1 "When no perception stands between God and His Creation, or between His Children and their own, the knowledge of creation MUST continue forever."
T14F2 "By sharing its reflection HERE, its truth becomes the only perception which the Son of God accepts."
T14F7 "The power of God, and NOT of you, engenders miracles."
T14F7 "The miracle ITSELF is but the witness that you HAVE the power of God in you."
T14F7 "The power of God IS limitless."
T14F11 "It is impossible to remember God in secret and alone."
T14F12 "As God communicates to the Holy Spirit in you, so does the Holy Spirit TRANSLATE His communications THROUGH you, so YOU can understand them."
T14F12 "God has no secret communications, for everything of Him is perfectly open, and freely accessible to all, being FOR all."
T14F13 "And God Himself, Who wills to be with His Son forever, will bless each recognition of His Son, with all the love He holds for him."
T14G1 "Knowledge is power, and all power is of God."
T14G2 "Yet all that stands between you, and the power of God in you, is but your learning of the false, and your attempts to UNDO THE TRUE."
T14G2 "For you have taught yourselves HOW TO IMPRISON THE SON OF GOD, a lesson so unthinkable that only the insane, in deepest sleep, could even DREAM of it."
T14G2 "Can God learn how NOT to be God?"
T14G4 "Yet God did not abandon you."
T14G4 "And so you have another lesson, sent from Him, ALREADY learned for every Child of Light, by Him to Whom God gave it."
T14G5 "This lesson shines with God's glory, for in it lies His power, which He shares so gladly with His Son."
T14G6 "You have one test, as sure as God, by which to recognize if what you learned is true."
T14G6 "If you are WHOLLY free of fear of any kind, and if all those who meet, or even THINK of you, SHARE in your perfect peace, then you can be sure that you have learned GOD's lesson, and NOT yours."
T14G6 "The ABSENCE of PERFECT peace means but ONE thing; you THINK you do not will for God's Son what His Father wills for him."
T14G7 "By this refusal to attempt to teach yourself what you do not know, the Guide Whom God has given you, will speak to you."
T14G8 "God's Son can make no needs His Father will not meet, if he but turn to Him ever so little."
T14G8 "It is impossible that God lose His identity, for if He did, YOU WOULD LOSE YOURS."
T14G12 "Thank God that He is there, and works through you."
T14G12 "God's Son will ALWAYS be indivisible."
T14G12 "As we are held as one in God, so do we learn as one in Him."
T14G12 "God's Teacher is as like to His Creator as is His Son, and through His Teacher does God proclaim His Oneness AND His Son's."
T14G12 "This is the Will of God for all creation, and all creation joins in willing this."
T14G13 "Each brings the other WITH it, for it is the law of God that they be not separate."
T14G16 "The power of God, from which they both arise, is yours as surely as it is His."
T15A1 "God's Teacher cannot be satisfied with His teaching, until it constitutes ALL your learning."
T15B7 "Each instant is a clean, untarnished birth, in which the Son of God emerges FROM the past, into the present."
T15B9 "There is no change in Heaven, because THERE IS NO CHANGE IN GOD."
T15B10 "In the holy instant, in which you see yourself as bright with freedom, you WILL remember God."
T15B12 "As long as it takes tore-establish perfect sanity, perfect peace, and perfect love for everyone, for God, and for YOURSELF."
T15B13 "He needs but very little, to restore God's Whole power to you."
T15B13 "There never WAS an instant in which God's Son could lose his purity."
T15B13 "For, caught in the single instant of the eternal sanctity of God's creation, it is TRANSFORMED into forever."
T15C1 "What holds remembrance of God, CANNOT be bound by time."
T15C1 "For, unless GOD is bound, you CANNOT be."
T15C1 "An instant, offered to the Holy Spirit, is offered to God on your behalf, and in that instant, you will awaken gently in Him."
T15C2 "It WILL come, being the lesson God gives you, through the Teacher HE has appointed, to translate time to eternity."
T15C3 "Blessed is God's Teacher, Whose joy it is to teach God's holy Son his holiness."
T15C3 "Through Him, YOU stand before God's altar, where He gently translated hell into Heaven."
T15C3 "For it is only in Heaven that God would have you be."
T15C3 "How long can it take, to be where God would have you?"
T15C3 "The blessed instant reaches out to ENCOMPASS time, as God extends Himself to encompass you."
T15C5 "A Son of God who has been released through the Holy Spirit in a brother, IF THE RELEASE IS COMPLETE, is ALWAYS recognized."
T15C6 "No gift of God is recognized in any other way."
T15C7 "God's Teacher, and His lesson will support your strength."
T15C7 "It is only your weakness that will depart from you in this practice, for it is the practice of the power of God in you."
T15D5 "The power of God will support every effort you make on behalf of the magnitude of His dear Son."
T15D5 "God is not willing that His Son be content with less than everything."
T15D5 "We asked you once before, "Would you be hostage to the ego or host to God?""
T15D6 "When God GAVE Himself to you in your creation, He ESTABLISHED you as host to Him forever."
T15D6 "All your attempts to deny His magnitude, and make His Son hostage to the ego, CANNOT make little whom God has joined with Him."
T15D7 "Decide for God through Him."
T15D7 "The power and the glory that lie in you, from God, are for all who, like you, perceive themselves as little, and have deceived themselves into believing that littleness can be blown up, BY THEM, into a sense of magnitude that can content them."
T15D7 "All honor is due the host of God."
T15D8 "It is our task TOGETHER to restore the awareness of magnitude, to the host whom God appointed for Himself."
T15D8 "It is beyond ALL your littleness to give the gift of God, but NOT beyond YOU."
T15D8 "For God would give Himself THROUGH you."
T15D10 "Holy Child of God, when will you learn that ONLY holiness can content you, and give you peace?"
T15D10 "I would but teach you what is yours, so that, together, we can replace the shabby littleness, that binds the host of God to guilt and weakness, with the glad awareness of the glory that is in him."
T15D12 "The host of God need not seek to find ANYTHING."
T15D12 "If you are wholly willing to leave Salvation to the plan of God, and UNwilling to attempt to grasp for peace YOURSELF, Salvation will be GIVEN you."
T15D12 "Rather, join with me in His, that we may release all those who would be bound, proclaiming together that the Son of God is host to Him."
T15D13 "Call forth in everyone ONLY the remembrance of God, and of the Heaven that is in him."
T15D13 "God's power is forever on the side of His host, for it protects ONLY the peace in which He dwells."
T15E1 "This course is not beyond IMMEDIATE learning, unless you prefer to believe that WHAT GOD WILLS TAKES TIME."
T15E3 "Give over EVERY plan that you have made for your Salvation, in exchange for God's."
T15E3 "For peace is of God, and of no-one beside Him."
T15E3 "And value NO plan of the ego, BEFORE the plan of God."
T15E3 "God would have His host abide in perfect freedom."
T15E5 "I call to you to make the holy instant yours AT ONCE, for the release from littleness in the mind of the host of God, depends on willingness, and NOT on time."
T15E7 "And then you wonder why it is that you are not in full communication with those around you, and with God, Who surrounds ALL of you together."
T15E9 "Thus will He make you ready to acknowledge that you ARE host to God, and hostage to no-one and to nothing."
T15F3 "If you would love UNlike to God, Who KNOWS no special love, how CAN you understand it?"
T15F9 "God knows you NOW."
T15F9 "His frame of reference is simply God."
T15F10 "The meaning of love is the meaning God GAVE to it."
T15F10 "Every brother God loves as He loves you; neither less nor more."
T15F10 "But in the holy instant, you unite DIRECTLY with God, and ALL your brothers join in Christ."
T15F11 "For Christ is the Self the Sonship shares, as God shares His Self with Christ."
T15F11 "Think you that you can judge the Self of God?"
T15F11 "God has created It BEYOND judgment, out of HIS need to extend His love."
T15F11 "For the holy instant reaches to eternity, and to the Mind of God."
T15F13 "In the holy instant, we SHARE our faith in God's Son, because we recognize, together, that he is wholly worthy OF it, and, in our appreciation of his worth, we CANNOT doubt his holiness."
T15G2 "You do NOT find it difficult to believe that, when ANOTHER calls on God for love, YOUR call remains as strong."
T15G2 "Nor do you think that, by God's answer to HIM, YOUR hope of answer is diminished."
T15G2 "That is because you recognize, however dimly, that God is an IDEA, and so YOUR faith in Him is STRENGTHENED by sharing."
T15G4 "And this IS love, for this alone is natural, under the laws of God."
T15G4 "In the holy instant, the laws of God prevail, and only THEY have meaning."
T15G4 "When the Son of God ACCEPTS the laws of God as what he gladly wills, it is impossible that he be bound, or limited in ANY way."
T15G4 "In this instant, he IS as free as God would have him be."
T15G6 "For, in the holy instant, you will recognize the ONLY need the aspects of the Son of God share equally, and, BY this recognition, you will join with me in OFFERING what is needed."
T15G8 "In the holy instant, God is remembered, and the language of communication with ALL your brothers, is remembered WITH Him."
T15G8 "God, and the power of God, will take their rightful place in you, and you will experience the full communication of ideas with ideas."
T15H3 "The host of God CAN have no REAL investment here."
T15H5 "It is this chain that binds the Son of God to guilt, and it is this chain the Holy Spirit would REMOVE from his holy mind."
T15H5 "For the chain of savagery belongs not around the chosen host of God, who CANNOT make himself host to the ego."
T15H13 "And He will do so, for the power of God in Him AND YOU is joined in REAL relationship, so holy and so strong, that it can overcome even this, WITHOUT fear."
T15H14 "And you understand that YOUR completion is God's, Whose only need is to have you Be complete."
T15I2 "God's Son has such great need of your willingness to strive for this, that you cannot conceive of need so great."
T15I2 "Behold the only need that God and His Son share, and will to meet together."
T15I2 "Turn, then, in peace, from guilt to God and them."
T15I3 "The loneliness of God's Son is the loneliness of his Father."
T15I3 "For the holy host of God is BEYOND failure, and NOTHING that he wills can BE denied."
T15I4 "Think but an instant on this; God gave the Sonship to you, to ensure your perfect creation."
T15I4 "And this universe, being of God, is far beyond the petty sum of all the separate bodies YOU perceive."
T15I4 "For all its parts are joined in God through Christ, where they become like to their Father."
T15I5 "The Holy Spirit is God's attempt to free you of what He does not understand."
T15I5 "The Holy Spirit asks you to respond as God does, for He would teach you what YOU do not understand."
T15I5 "God would respond to EVERY need, WHATEVER form it takes."
T15I5 "God does NOT understand your problem in communication, for He does NOT share it with you."
T15I6 "In Him alone, lies the awareness of what God CANNOT know, and what YOU do NOT understand."
T15I6 "Leave, then, what seems to you to be impossible, to Him Who knows it MUST be possible, because it is the Will of God."
T15I6 "And let Him, Whose teaching is ONLY of God, teach you the ONLY meaning of relationships."
T15I6 "For God Himself created the only relationship that HAS meaning, and that is His relationship with YOU."
T15I7 "As the ego would limit your perception of your brothers to the body, so would the Holy Spirit RELEASE your vision, and let you see the Great Rays shining from them, so unlimited that they reach to God."
T15I7 "For, once you have accepted it as the ONLY PERCEPTION THAT YOU WANT, it is translated into knowledge, by the part that God Himself plays in the Atonement, for it is the ONLY step in it He understands."
T15I7 "God is ready NOW, but YOU are not."
T15I9 "Real relationships HAVE no limits, having been established by God."
T15I110 "Yet it is impossible to DIVIDE your strength between Heaven and hell, God and the ego, and RELEASE your power unto creation, that is the ONLY purpose for which it was GIVEN you."
T15I11 "If you would but let the Holy Spirit tell you of the Love of God for you, and the need that your creations have to be with you forever, you would experience the attraction of the Eternal."
T15I12 "But this you must remember; the attraction of guilt OPPOSES the attraction of God."
T15I12 "What you invest in guilt, you withdraw from God."
T15I12 "And limit not your vision of God's Son to what INTERFERES with his release, and what the Holy Spirit must UNDO to set him free."
T15I13 "And your thoughts will be as free as God's."
T15I13 "And you experience ONLY the attraction of God."
T15J2 "For, in this liberating instant, no guilt is laid upon the Son of God, and his unlimited power is thus restored to him."
T15J2 "I am incapable of receiving sacrifice as God is."
T15J5 "The idea is simply this; you believe that it is possible to be host to the ego, or hostage to God."
T15J7 "How fearful, then, has God become to you, and how great a sacrifice do you believe His Love demands!"
T15J7 "And so the ego seems to demand LESS of you than God, and of the two is judged as the LESSER of two evils, one to be feared a little, but the Other TO BE DESTROYED."
T15J8 "And this you think SAVES YOU FROM GOD, whose TOTAL Love would COMPLETELY destroy you."
T15J8 "But the REAL price of NOT accepting this has been so great, that you have GIVEN GOD AWAY, rather than look at it."
T15J9 "For, if GOD would demand total sacrifice of you, you thought it safer to project Him outward and AWAY from you, and NOT be host to Him."
T15J10 "Salvation is simple, being of God, and therefore VERY easy to understand."
T15J10 "In YOU are both the question and the Answer; the demand for sacrifice and the peace of God."
T15K2 "For He is Host to God."
T15K2 "No fear can touch the Host Who cradles God in the time of Christ."
T15K4 "Guilt is the CONDITION of sacrifice, as peace is the condition for the awareness of your relationship with God."
T15K6 "For, unless the universe were joined in YOU, it would be APART FROM God, and to be without Him IS to be without meaning."
T15K9 "God offers thanks to the holy host who would receive Him, and let Him enter, and abide where He would be."
T16B3 "The POWER of love, which IS its meaning, lies in the strength of God, which hovers over it and blesses it silently, by enveloping it in healing wings."
T16C3 "For it is the way GOD thinks, and what is natural to Him, IS natural to you."
T16C6 "Miracles are natural to God, and to the One Who speaks for Him."
T16C7 "The host of God has called to you, and you HAVE heard."
T16C8 "God wills you better."
T16C8 "Could you not look with greater charity, on whom God loves with perfect love?"
T16C9 "This year, determine NOT to deny what has been given you BY God, to use for Him."
T16D5 "Created by God, He left neither God nor His creation."
T16D5 "He is both God and you, as you are God and Him together."
T16D5 "For God's answer to the separation added more to you than you tried to TAKE AWAY."
T16D6 "You who are host to God, are also host to THEM."
T16D6 "What is BEYOND GOD?"
T16D6 "Their gratitude has joined with yours and God's, to strengthen your faith in what you taught."
T16E2 "This is the last step in the readiness for God."
T16E8 "No specialness can offer you what God has given, and what YOU are joined WITH Him in giving."
T16E8 "Across the bridge IS your completion, for you will be WHOLLY in God, willing for NOTHING special, but only to be wholly like unto Him, completing Him by your completion."
T16E9 "Only there is the completion of God and of His Son established forever."
T16E9 "And, in the Name of God, be wholly willing to abandon ALL illusion."
T16E9 "In any relationship in which you are wholly willing to accept completion, and ONLY this, there is God completed, and His Son WITH Him."
T16E9 "The bridge that leads to union IN YOURSELF, MUST lead to knowledge, for it was built with God beside you."
T16E11 "Whom God remembers, MUST be whole."
T16E11 "And God has NEVER forgotten what makes HIM whole."
T16E12 "In Him are joined your WILLINGNESS to love, and all the love of God, Who forgot you not."
T16E12 "And then TOGETHER we go straight to God, in joyous answer to His call for His completion."
T16E13 "If special relationships of ANY kind would HINDER God's completion, CAN they have any value TO YOU?"
T16E13 "What would interfere with God, MUST interfere with you."
T16E13 "Only in time does interference in God's completion SEEM to be possible."
T16E13 "There is no veil the love of God in us together CANNOT lift."
T16F1 "Very simply, the attempt to make guilty is ALWAYS directed against God."
T16F4 "It is in the special relationship, born of the hidden wish for special love from God, that the ego's hatred triumphs."
T16F4 "For the special relationship is THE RENUNCIATION OF THE LOVE OF GOD, and the attempt to secure for the self the specialness that He denied."
T16F5 "To the ego, completion lies in triumph, and in the extension of the "victory," even to the final triumph over God."
T16F10 "If you perceived the special relationship as a triumph over God, WOULD YOU WANT IT?"
T16F10 "The central theme in its litany to sacrifice is that GOD MUST DIE SO YOU CAN LIVE."
T16F12 "The special relationship is a RITUAL OF FORM, aimed at the raising of the form to take the place of God, at the EXPENSE of content."
T16F12 "The special relationship MUST be recognized for what it is; a senseless ritual, in which strength is extracted from the death of God, and invested in His killer, as the sign that form has triumphed over content, and love has LOST its meaning."
T16F13 "God is not angry."
T16F13 "Nor can your chosen substitute for the Wholeness of God, have ANY influence at all upon It."
T16F14 "And, to the same extent, you are DENYING truth, and so are making YOURSELF unable to make the simple choice between truth and illusion, fantasy and God."
T16F15 "Yet, for every learning that would hurt you, God offers you correction, and COMPLETE escape from ALL its consequences."
T16F16 "You will cross the bridge into reality, simply because you will recognize that God is on the other side AND NOTHING AT ALL IS HERE."
T16G1 "The search for the special relationship is the sign that you equate your self with the ego, and NOT with God."
T16G1 "Yet, this CANNOT be natural, for it is UNlike the relationship of God and His Son, and ALL relationships that are unlike this One, MUST be unnatural."
T16G1 "For God created love as He would have it be, and GAVE it as it IS."
T16G2 "For the love of God, no longer seek for union in separation, nor for freedom in bondage!"
T16G4 "For God is left WITHOUT, and NOTHING taken in."
T16G10 "Wait no longer, for the Love of God and YOU."
T16H8 "What God has given you is truly given."
T16H8 "For God's gifts HAVE no reality, APART from your receiving them."
T16H8 "And EVERYTHING the Holy Spirit teaches you, is to remind you that you HAVE received what God has given you."
T16H9 "God holds nothing against ANYONE, for He is INCAPABLE of illusions of ANY kind."
T16H10 "The power of God, and all His Love, without limit, will support you, as you seek only your place in the plan of Atonement arising from His Love."
T16H10 "Be an ally of God, and NOT the ego, in seeking how Atonement can come to you."
T16H11 "And, through THEIR reality, give over ALL illusions, for the reality of your relationship with God."
T16H12 "Let us not wander into temptation, for the temptation of the Son of God is NOT Your Will."
T17A1 "The betrayal of the Son of God lies only in illusions, and all his "sins" are but his own imagining."
T17A1 "In his dreams he HAS betrayed himself, his brothers and his God."
T17C1 "FOR YOU WILL SEE THE SON OF GOD."
T17C3 "This step, the smallest ever taken by anything, is still the greatest accomplishment of all, in God's plan of Atonement."
T17C3 "And, with this final blessing of God's Son UPON HIMSELF, the REAL perception, born of the new perspective he has learned, has served its purpose."
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 "Not even what the Son of God made in insanity, could be without a hidden spark of beauty, that gentleness could release."
T17C6 "The smallest leaf becomes a thing of wonder, and a blade of grass a sign of God's perfection."
T17C6 "From the forgiven world, the Son of God is lifted easily to his home."
T17D1 "Be willing to forgive the Son of God for what he did NOT do."
T17D10 "God's Son is one."
T17D10 "And whom God has JOINED as one, the ego CANNOT break apart."
T17D12 "For you can NEVER choose EXCEPT between God and the ego."
T17D12 "Only the Thoughts of God ARE true."
T17D13 "Let me enter, in the Name of God, and bring YOU peace, that YOU may offer peace to me."
T17E1 "God established His relationship with you TO MAKE YOU HAPPY, and nothing YOU do which does NOT share His purpose CAN be real."
T17E1 "The purpose GOD ascribed to anything IS its only function."
T17E1 "To fulfill this function, you relate to your creations as GOD to HIS."
T17E1 "For nothing God created is APART from happiness, and nothing God created but would EXTEND happiness, as its Creator did."
T17E2 "And by that, all that is meant is that He will RESTORE to them the function that was GIVEN them, by God."
T17E2 "But the holy relationship SHARES God's purpose, rather than aiming to make a SUBSTITUTE for it."
T17E2 "Every special relationship that YOU have made IS a substitute for God's Will, and glorifies yours instead of His, BECAUSE OF THE DELUSION THEY ARE DIFFERENT."
T17E3 "In a sense, the special relationship was the EGO's answer to the creation of the Holy Spirit, Who was God's Answer to the separation."
T17E4 "The whole defense system that the ego evolved, to PROTECT the separation from the Holy Spirit, was in response to the Gift with which God blessed it, and BY His blessing enabled it to be HEALED."
T17E4 "And the truth is that the Holy Spirit IS in close relationship with you, because, in Him, is your relationship with God restored to you."
T17E4 "And through Him, have all your holy relationships been carefully preserved, to serve God's purpose FOR you."
T17E10 "The power of Heaven, the Love of God, the tears of Christ and the joy of His Eternal Spirit are marshalled to defend you from your own attack."
T17E15 "The frame fades gently, and God rises to your remembrance, offering you the whole of creation, in exchange for your little picture, wholly without value, and entirely deprived of meaning."
T17E15 "As God ascends into HIS rightful place and you to yours, you will experience again the MEANING of relationship, and know it to be true."
T17E16 "For here is God, and where HE is, only the perfect and complete CAN be."
T17F10 "For you have chosen but the goal of God, from which your true intent was NEVER absent."
T17F10 "For God Himself has blessed your special relationship."
T17H8 "For loneliness in God MUST be a dream."
T17I5 "Such was the crucifixion of the Son of God."
T18A2 "NOTHING can come BETWEEN what God has joined, and what the Holy Spirit sees as one."
T18B1 "You who believe that God is fear made but ONE substitution."
T18B5 "And turn you to the stately calm within, where, in holy stillness, dwells the living God you never left, and Who never left you."
T18B7 "Here you are joined in God, as much together as you are with Him."
T18B8 "Your reality was GOD's creation, and HAS no substitute."
T18B8 "You are so firmly joined in truth, that only God is there."
T18B8 "God is with you, my brothers."
T18B9 "God and His whole Creation has entered it together."
T18B9 "And God Himself is glad that your relationship is as it was created."
T18B10 "Whom God hath called should hear no substitutes."
T18B11 "The peace of God is given you, with the glowing purpose in which you join."
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."
T18C11 "For this dream comes from your will, JOINED with the Will of God."
T18D1 "What you forgot was simply that God can NOT destroy Himself."
T18D5 "The gift is given forever, for God Himself received it."
T18D5 "YOU HAVE ACCEPTED GOD."
T18D5 "The will of God IS granted you."
T18D6 "And where we go we carry God with us."
T18D7 "In your relationship, you have joined with me in bringing Heaven to the Son of God, who hid in darkness."
T18D9 "Not one ray that shines forever in the Mind of God but shines on you."
T18D9 "When such great light has joined with you to give the little spark of your desire the power of God Himself, can YOU remain in darkness?"
T18D9 "And from this light will the Great Rays extend back into darkness and forward unto God, to shine away the past and so make room for His Eternal Presence, in which everything is radiant in the light."
T18E3 "God did not create His dwelling-place unworthy of Him."
T18E4 "GOD HAS ESTABLISHED THEM."
T18E6 "Purification is of God alone."
T18E6 "Rather than seek to prepare YOURSELF for Him, try to think thus: "I who am host to God AM worthy of Him."
T18E9 "What you believe to be impossible WILL BE, if God so wills it, but you will remain quite UNAWARE of it."
T18E9 "Everything God wills is not only possible, but has already happened."
T18F3 "Yet it IS possible, because God wills it."
T18G1 "For God created only this, and He did not depart from it, nor leave it separate from Himself."
T18G1 "The Kingdom of Heaven is the dwelling place of the Son of God, who left not his Father, and dwells not apart from Him."
T18G2 "What could God give, but knowledge of Himself?"
T18G4 "But love does not condemn it, and can use it lovingly, respecting what the Son of God has made, and using it to SAVE him from illusions."
T18G5 "And what God created is only what He would have it be, being His Will."
T18G7 "YOU have done this to a thing that has no meaning, proclaiming it to be the dwelling place of the Son of God, and turning it AGAINST him."
T18G7 "This is the host of God that YOU have made."
T18G7 "And neither God nor His most holy Son can enter an abode which harbors hate, and where you have sown the seeds of vengeance, violence, and death."
T18G10 "There IS no barrier between God and His Son, nor can His Son be separated from himself, except in illusion."
T18G10 "Yet this could only BE, IF God were wrong."
T18G10 "God would have had to create DIFFERENTLY, and to have separated HIMSELF from His Son, to make this possible."
T18G11 "YOU cannot put a barrier around yourself, because God placed none between HIMSELF and you."
T18G11 "Where God is not?"
T18I1 "You cannot even think of GOD without a body, or some form you think you recognize."
T18I2 "God cannot come into a body, nor can you join Him there."
T18I2 "It draws a circle, infinitely small, around a very little segment of Heaven, splintered from the whole, proclaiming that, within it, is YOUR Kingdom, where God can enter not."
T18I9 "The Thought of God surrounds your little kingdom, waiting at the barrier you built, to come in and shine upon the barren ground."
T18I11 "No son of God remains OUTSIDE His Fatherhood."
T18I12 "You could no more know God alone, than He knows YOU without your brother."
T18J1 "The rest is fully in God's keeping, and needs no guide."
T18J1 "But this wild and delusional thought needs help, because, in its delusions, it thinks it is the Son of God, whole and omnipotent, sole ruler of the kingdom it set apart, to tyrannize by madness into obedience and slavery."
T18J2 "Within its barricades is still a tiny segment of the Son of God, complete and holy, serene and unaware of what you think surrounds it."
T18J4 "Yet God can bring you there, if you are willing to follow the Holy Spirit through seeming terror, trusting Him not to abandon you, and LEAVE you there."
T18J10 "Here there is no attack upon the Son of God, and YOU are welcome."
T18J11 "Here you are led, that God Himself can take the final step unhindered."
T18K1 "Where learning ends, there God begins, for learning ends before Him Who is complete where He begins, and where there IS no end."
T18K4 "And when the memory of God has come to you, in the holy place of forgiveness, you will remember nothing else."
T19A2 "Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity to heal the Son of God."
T19B3 "Faithlessness would interpose illusions between the Son of God and his Creator; faith would remove ALL obstacles that SEEM to rise between them."
T19B5 "For God gave healing not APART from sickness, nor established remedy where sickness CANNOT be."
T19B10 "Faith is the gift of God, through Him Whom God has GIVEN you."
T19B10 "Faithlessness looks upon the Son of God, and judges him UNWORTHY of forgiveness."
T19B10 "But, through the eyes of faith, the Son of God is seen ALREADY forgiven, free of all the guilt he laid upon himself."
T19B11 "Faith is a gift you offer to the Son of God THROUGH Him, and WHOLLY acceptable to his Father as to him."
T19B13 "In the holy instant, you stand before the altar God has raised unto Himself and BOTH of you."
T19B15 "Whom God created as His Son is slave to nothing, being lord of all, along with his Creator."
T19C2 "It assumes the Son of God IS guilty, and has thus SUCCEEDED in losing his innocence, and making himself what God created NOT."
T19C2 "Thus is creation seen as NOT eternal, and the Will of God open to opposition AND DEFEAT."
T19C2 "For BY it, God HIMSELF is changed, and rendered incomplete."
T19C3 "The Son of God CAN be mistaken; he CAN deceive himself; he can even turn the power of his mind AGAINST himself."
T19C4 "And it is this doctrine that REPLACES the reality of the Son of God, as his Father created him, and willed that he be forever."
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."
T19C8 "There is no stone in all the ego's embattled citadel more heavily defended than the idea that sin is real; the NATURAL expression of what the Son of God has MADE himself to be, AND WHAT HE IS."
T19C8 "Mourn then the death of God, Whom sin has killed!"
T19D4 "Mistakes He recognizes, and would correct them all, as God entrusted Him to do."
T19D5 "In time, the Holy Spirit CLEARLY sees the Son of God can make mistakes."
T19D8 "When you are tempted to believe that sin is real, remember this: If sin is real, both God AND YOU are not."
T19D8 "If sin is real, God must be at war WITHIN HIMSELF."
T19D9 "And God and His creation seem to be split apart, and overthrown."
T19D9 "For sin would PROVE what God created holy could not prevail against it, nor remain ITSELF before the power of sin."
T19D10 "Sin is perceived as mightier than God, before which God HIMSELF must bow, and offer His creation to its conqueror."
T19D10 "For there would be a power BEYOND God's, capable of making another will, which could attack His Will, and OVERCOME it."
T19D16 "For you will CALL to him and he will answer, RECOGNIZING in your call the call of God."
T19D18 "When God has taken the last step Himself, the Holy Spirit will gather ALL your thanks and gratitude that you have offered Him, and lay them gently before His Creator, in the Name of His most holy Son."
T19E1 "If YOU would make it homeless, how can it abide within the Son of God?"
T19E3 "This little wall of hatred would STILL oppose the Will of God, and keep It limited."
T19E3 "You still oppose the Will of God, just by a little."
T19E3 "God's Will is One, NOT many."
T19E4 "Peace could no more DEPART from you than from God."
T19E4 "It can NOT contain the Will of God."
T19F9 "Salvation is looked upon as a way by which the Son of God was killed, instead of YOU."
T19G6 "Forgive me for all the sins you think the Son of God committed."
T19H1 "For what He gives MUST be extended, if YOU would have its limitless power, and use it for the Son of God's release."
T19I3 "It is the Will of God."
T19I3 "And death is the result of the thought we call the ego, as surely as life is the result of the Thought of God."
T19J1 "From the ego came sin and guilt and death, in OPPOSITION to life and innocence, and to the Will of God Himself."
T19J2 "One thing is sure; God, Who created neither sin nor death, wills not that you be bound by them."
T19J3 "You who believe you have condemned the Son of God to this ARE arrogant."
T19J4 "For God has ANSWERED this insane idea with His Own, an Answer which left Him not, and therefore brings the Creator to the awareness of every mind which heard His Answer, and ACCEPTED it."
T19J5 "For death is seen as SAFETY, the great dark savior from the light of truth, the answer to the Answer, the silencer of the Voice that speaks for God."
T19J5 "Only God's ANSWER is its end."
T19J6 "the ego would lay the Son of God, slain by its orders, proof in his decay that God Himself is powerless before the ego's might, unable to protect the life that He created, against the ego's savage wish to kill."
T19J7 "And what but insanity could look upon the defeat of God, and think it REAL?"
T19J8 "The end of sin, which nestles quietly in the safety of your relationship, protected by your union, ready to grow into a mighty force for God, is very near."
T19J8 "Your new-born purpose is nursed by angels, cherished by the Holy Spirit, and protected by God Himself."
T19J9 "What has been given you, even in its infancy, is in full communication with God AND you."
T19J9 "Behold this infant, to whom you gave a resting place by your forgiveness of EACH OTHER, and see in it the Will of God."
T19K1 "And, as this Memory rises in your mind, peace must still surmount a final obstacle, AFTER which is salvation completed, and the Son of God ENTIRELY restored to sanity."
T19K3 "Here is your promise never to allow union to call you OUT of separation; the great amnesia in which the memory of God seems quite forgotten; the cleavage of your Self from you; THE FEAR OF GOD, the final step in your dissociation."
T19K4 "For, in your secret alliance with them, you have agreed never to let the fear of God be lifted, so you could look upon the face of Christ, and join Him in His Father."
T19L2 "No-one can look upon the fear of God unterrified, unless he has ACCEPTED the Atonement, and learned illusions are not real."
T19L4 "To look upon the fear of God DOES need some preparation."
T19L4 "You are afraid of God BECAUSE you fear each other."
T19L8 "For HIS redemption he will give you yours, as surely as God created every living thing, and loves it."
T19L9 "And offer thanks to God that he is holy, and has been given the gift of holiness for YOU."
T19L10 "Look on your brother, and see in him the gift of God you would RECEIVE."
T19L11 "So will we prepare TOGETHER the way unto the Resurrection of God's Son."
T19L12 "And, knowing, nothing in the plan God has established for salvation will be left undone."
T19L12 "Here is the Peace of God, given to you eternally by Him."
T19L12 "Heaven is the gift you OWE each other, the debt of gratitude you offer to the Son of God, in thanks for what he is, and what his Father created him to be."
T19L14 "What you had faith in still is faithful, and watches over you in faith so gentle, yet so strong, that it would lift you far beyond the veil, and place the Son of God safely within the sure protection of his Father."
T20A1 "Let us not spend this holy week brooding on the crucifixion of God's Son, but happily in the celebration of his RELEASE."
T20A1 "But a RISEN Christ becomes the symbol of the Son of God's forgiveness upon HIMSELF; the sign he looks upon himself as healed and whole."
T20B1 "This week begins with palms and ends with lilies, the white and holy sign the Son of God is innocent."
T20B2 "And we honor the perfect PURITY of the Son of God, and NOT his sins."
T20B3 "A week is short, and yet this holy week is the symbol of the whole journey that the Son of God has undertaken."
T20C3 "Here is your gift to BOTH; your judgment upon the Son of God for what he is."
T20C4 "I have great need for lilies, for the Son of God has not forgiven me."
T20C4 "Be you his Friend for me, that I may be forgiven, and you may look upon the Son of God as whole."
T20C7 "The fear of God is NOTHING to you now."
T20C7 "WITH him, your vision has become the greatest power for the UNDOING of illusion that God Himself could give."
T20C7 "For what God gave the Holy Spirit, YOU have received."
T20C7 "The Son of God looks unto YOU for his release."
T20C7 "For you have asked for AND BEEN GIVEN the strength to look upon this final obstacle, and see no thorns nor nails to crucify the Son of God, and crown him king of death."
T20C8 "The song of Easter is the glad refrain the Son of God was NEVER crucified."
T20C10 "This is the way to Heaven and to the peace of Easter, in which we join in glad awareness that the Son of God is risen from the past, and has awakened to the present."
T20D7 "Seek not to make the Son of God ADJUST to his insanity."
T20D8 "And of the one blind thing in all the seeing universe you ask, "how shall I look upon the Son of God?""
T20D9 "Did you meet with joy, to bless the Son of God, and give him thanks for all the happiness he held out to you?"
T20D9 "Did you RECOGNIZE each other as the eternal gift of God to you?"
T20D10 "And yet his holiness remained untouched and perfect, and with him beside you shall you this day enter with him to Paradise, and know the peace of God."
T20D12 "The innocent see safety, and the pure see God within His Son, and look unto the Son to lead them to the Father."
T20D12 "Each of you now will lead the other to the Father, as surely as God created His Son holy, and kept him so."
T20D12 "In your brother is the light of God's eternal promise of YOUR immortality."
T20E1 "Power is of God, GIVEN by Him, and RE-AWAKENED by the Holy Spirit, Who knows that, as you give you GAIN."
T20E2 "Being without illusion of what you are, the Holy Spirit merely gives EVERYTHING to God, Who has already given AND RECEIVED all that is true."
T20E3 "It is the re-awakening of the laws of God in minds that have established OTHER laws, and given them power to enforce what God created not."
T20E4 "What God has given follows HIS laws, and His alone."
T20E4 "Their power is of God."
T20E4 "And they will give it only to what GOD has given, to SHARE with them."
T20E5 "Nothing but this can touch them, for they see ONLY this, sharing their power according to the Will of God."
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 "And as they rest, the face of Christ shines on them, and they remember the laws of God, forgetting all the rest, and yearning only to have His laws perfectly fulfilled in them and all their brothers."
T20E8 "But ask yourself if it is possible that GOD would have a plan for your salvation that does NOT work."
T20E9 "God's guarantee will hold against ALL obstacles, for it rests on certainty, and NOT contingency."
T20E9 "And what can be more certain than the Son of God?"
T20F1 "In this world, God's Son comes closest to himself in a holy relationship."
T20F1 "So do the parts of God's Son gradually join in time, and with each joining is the end of time brought nearer."
T20F2 "Peace to your holy relationship, which has the power to hold the unity of the Son of God together."
T20F7 "This gift returns the laws of God to your remembrance."
T20F8 "He knows the Son of God."
T20F8 "And yet it is impossible the confidence of God should be misplaced."
T20G1 "The meaning of the Son of God lies solely in his relationship with his Creator."
T20G1 "Yet has the Son of God invented an unholy relationship between him and his Father."
T20G6 "What God would have NOT be, is here kept "safe" from Him."
T20G6 "But what you do NOT realize is what you fear within your brother, and would not SEE in HIM, is what makes God seem fearful and kept unknown."
T20G8 "The instant that the mad idea of making your relationship with God unholy seemed to be possible, ALL relationships were made meaningless."
T20G10 "The holy relationship reflects the TRUE relationship the Son of God has with his Father in reality."
T20G11 "Here does the Son of God stop briefly by, to offer his devotion to death's idols, and then pass on."
T20G13 "It is as like your real relationship with God, as equal things are like themselves."
T20G13 "Perhaps you fear each other a little yet; perhaps a shadow of the fear of God remains with you."
T20I4 "And bless the Son of God in your relationship, nor see in him what you have MADE of him."
T20I4 "The Holy Spirit GUARANTEES that what God has willed and given shall be yours."
T20I5 "Why do you think the body is a better home, a safer shelter for God's Son?"
T20I12 "YOU can behold the holiness God gave His Son."
T21A2 "See IT as damned, and all you see is what YOU did to hurt the Son of God."
T21A2 "If you see holiness and hope, you joined the Will of God to set him free."
T21B7 "This is the vision of the Son of God, whom you know well."
T21B8 "Nothing will ever be as dear to you as is this ancient hymn of love the Son of God sings to his Father still."
T21B8 "And they will look upon the vision of the Son of God, remembering who he is they sing of."
T21C3 "It is impossible the Son of God be merely driven by events OUTSIDE him."
T21C3 "No accident or chance is POSSIBLE within the universe as God created it, OUTSIDE of which is nothing."
T21C3 "Be happy, and you GAVE the power of decision to Him Who MUST decide for God for you."
T21C6 "All that the ego is, is an idea that it is possible that things should HAPPEN to the Son of God, WITHOUT his will."
T21C6 "This is the Son of God's REPLACEMENT for his will, a mad revolt against what must forever be."
T21C6 "This is the statement that he HAS the power to make God powerLESS."
T21C6 "And so to take it from HIMSELF, and leave himself WITHOUT what God has willed FOR him."
T21D3 "For faith can keep the Son of God in chains, as long as he believes he IS in chains."
T21D5 "It is impossible that the Son of God LACK faith."
T21D5 "Faith given to illusions does NOT lack power, for, BY it, does the Son of God believe that he is powerless."
T21E2 "Loudly the ego tells you NOT to look inward, for if you do, your eyes will light on sin, and God will strike you blind."
T21F1 "The still small Voice for God, is NOT drowned out by all the ego's raucous screams and senseless ravings, to those who WANT to hear."
T21F6 "God's plan for your salvation could not have been established WITHOUT your will and your consent."
T21F6 "It MUST have been accepted by the Son of God, for what God wills for him, he MUST receive."
T21F6 "For God wills not, apart from him."
T21F6 "Nor does the Will of God wait upon time to be accomplished."
T21F6 "Therefore, what JOINED the Will of God MUST be in you NOW, being eternal."
T21F7 "God's plan is simple; NEVER circular, and NEVER Self-defeating."
T21F8 "For this MUST have an answer, if the plan of God for your salvation is complete."
T21G3 "No-one can think but for himself, as God thinks not without His Son."
T21G5 "If you choose sin INSTEAD of healing, you would condemn the Son of God to what can NEVER be corrected."
T21G7 "The power to HEAL the Son of God is given you, BECAUSE he MUST be one with you."
T21G10 "The Son of God is ALWAYS blessed as one."
T21G11 "The power that YOU have over the Son of God is NOT a threat to his reality."
T21G11 "God is not mocked; no more His Son can BE imprisoned, save by his own desire."
T21H1 "Treachery to the Son of God is the defense of those who do NOT identify with him."
T21H2 "No-one believes the Son of God is powerless."
T21H2 "And those who see themselves as helpless MUST believe that they are NOT the Son of God."
T21H2 "These are the dark ones, silent and afraid, alone and not communicating, fearful the power of the Son of God will strike them dead, and raising up their helplessness AGAINST him."
T21H13 "The power of the Son of God's desire remains the proof that he is wrong who sees himself as helpless."
T21I2 "It is unshakable as is the Love of God for His Creation."
T21I3 "Yet he WILL ask, because desire IS a request, an ASKING FOR, and made by one whom God Himself will never fail to answer."
T21I4 "God has ALREADY given him all that he REALLY wants."
T21I4 "But what he is uncertain of, God CANNOT give."
T21I4 "For He does NOT desire it while he REMAINS uncertain, and God's giving MUST be incomplete unless it is RECEIVED."
T21I5 "What is the holy instant but God's appeal to you to RECOGNIZE what He has given you?"
T22A1 "Rejoice whom God hath joined have come together, and need no longer look on sin APART."
T22A5 "Here is the golden circle, where you RECOGNIZE the Son of God."
T22B1 "If you attack whom God would heal, and hate the one He loves, then you and your Creator have a DIFFERENT will."
T22B4 "GOD HAS NO SECRETS."
T22B10 "Be certain that God does not entrust His Son to the unworthy."
T22B12 "And who is drawn to Christ is drawn to God, as surely as both are drawn to every holy relationship, the home prepared for them as earth is turned to Heaven."
T22C9 "ONLY if it were possible the Son of God could LEAVE his Father's Mind, make himself DIFFERENT, and OPPOSE His Will, would it be possible that the self he made, and all IT made, should be his master."
T22C11 "Yet it IS possible to recognize him for what he IS, if God would have it so."
T22C11 "What God has given to your holy relationship IS THERE."
T22C11 "Receive of him what God has given him for you, NOT what YOU tried to give."
T22C12 "Beyond the bodies that you interposed between you, and shining in the golden light that reaches it from the bright endless circle that extends forever, is your holy relationship, beloved of God, and holy as Himself."
T22C13 "And God created it for YOU."
T22E7 "God's offer still is open; yet it waits acceptance."
T22E8 "To all who share the love of God the grace is given to be the givers of what they have received."
T22F3 "God holds your hands, and what can separate whom He has joined as one with Him?"
T22F3 "God rests with you in quiet, undefended and wholly undefending."
T22F4 "Is it this tiny mouse, or everything that God created?"
T22F4 "You are NOT joined together by this mouse, but by the Will of God."
T22F4 "And can a mouse BETRAY whom God has joined?"
T22G3 "Be not disturbed at all to think how He can change the role of means and end so easily in what God loves, and would have free forever."
T22G7 "God would let NOTHING interfere with those whose wills are His."
T22G10 "He will join to it ALL the power that God has given Him, to make each little gift of love a source of healing for everyone."
T22G11 "Think you the Will of God is powerLESS?"
T22G11 "Let us look straight at how this error came about, for here lies buried the heavy anchor that seems to keep the fear of God in place, unmovable and solid as a rock."
T22G12 "Who can attack the Son of God, and NOT attack his Father?"
T22G12 "How can God's Son be weak and frail and easily destroyed, UNLESS HIS FATHER IS?"
T23A1 "And what is weak is NOT the Will of God."
T23A1 "And God is feared, as an OPPOSING will."
T23A5 "Let us not let littleness lead God's Son into temptation."
T23B1 "The memory of God comes to the quiet mind."
T23B1 "Surely you realize the ego IS at war with God."
T23B2 "Do you not realize a war against yourself would BE a war on God?"
T23B2 "The death of God, if it were possible, would be YOUR death."
T23B2 "And God thinks otherwise."
T23B2 "Only the mad belief the Will of God can be attacked and overthrown."
T23B3 "Be certain that it is impossible God and the ego, or yourself and it, will EVER meet."
T23B4 "Your "enemy" was God Himself, to Whom all conflict, triumph, and attack of ANY kind are all unknown."
T23B4 "The Son of God at war with his Creator is a condition as ridiculous as nature roaring at the wind in anger, and proclaiming that it is part of itself no longer."
T23B5 "The war against yourself was undertaken to teach the Son of God that he is NOT himself, and NOT his Father's Son."
T23B7 "For you MUST be as God created you."
T23B7 "And truth stands radiant, APART from conflict, untouched and quiet, in the peace of God."
T23B8 "And this occurs whenever you look on ANYTHING that God created with anything but love."
T23B8 "Let all this madness be undone for you, and turn in peace to the remembrance of God, still shining in your quiet mind."
T23B10 "Open the doors of His most holy home, and let forgiveness sweep away all trace of the belief in sin that keeps God homeless, and His Son with Him."
T23B10 "You are not strangers in the house of God."
T23B10 "Welcome your brother to the home where God has set him in serenity and peace, and dwells with him."
T23B11 "How can the resting place of God turn on itself, and seek to overcome the One Who dwells there?"
T23B11 "And think what happens when the house of God perceives itself divided."
T23B12 "So is the memory of God obscured in minds that have become illusion's battleground."
T23C4 "What he has done is thus interpreted as an irrevocable sentence on himself, which God Himself is powerless to overlook."
T23C4 "Sin cannot BE remitted, being the belief the Son of God can make mistakes for which his own destruction becomes inevitable."
T23C5 "And fear of God, and of each other, now appears as sensible, made real by what the Son of God has done, both to himself AND his Creator."
T23C7 "For, if God cannot BE mistaken, then He must accept His Son's belief in what he is, and HATE him for it."
T23C7 "See how the fear of God is REINFORCED by this third principle."
T23C8 "And now is conflict made inevitable, and beyond the help of God."
T23C8 "Atonement thus becomes a myth, and vengeance, NOT forgiveness, is the Will of God."
T23C8 "And God Himself SEEMS to be siding with it, to overcome His Son."
T23C13 "Nor will God end His vengeance upon both, for, in His madness, HE must have this substitute for love, and kill you both."
T23C15 "These are the means by which the laws of God APPEAR to be reversed."
T23C16 "Give thanks unto the hero on love's throne, who saved the Son of God for fear and death!"
T23C20 "Where God created life, there life must be."
T23D2 "Is death in ANY form, however lovely and charitable it may SEEM to be, a blessing and a sign the Voice for God speaks through you to your brother?"
T23E1 "The fear of God is fear of life, and NOT of death."
T23E2 "So WILL they be, to those who see God's Son a body."
T23E3 "God does not share His function with a body."
T23E3 "Creation is the means for God's extension."
T23E4 "The lovely light of your relationship IS like the love of God."
T23E4 "It cannot yet assume the holy function God gave His Son, for your forgiveness of one another is not complete as yet."
T23E6 "And God Himself and all the lights of Heaven, will gently lean to you, and hold you up."
T23E6 "And NO illusion can attack the peace of God TOGETHER with His Son."
T23E9 "Those with the strength of God in their awareness could never THINK of battle."
T23E9 "Who, with the love of God upholding him, could find the choice of miracles or murder hard to make?"
T24A1 "Given this state, the mind is quiet, and the condition in which God is remembered is attained."
T24A1 "God does not wait upon illusions to let Him be Himself."
T24A2 "What God creates has NO alternative."
T24B3 "This takes many forms, but ALWAYS clashes with the reality of God's creation, and with the grandeur which He gave His Son."
T24B3 "What God created cannot be attacked, for there is nothing in the universe unlike itself."
T24B7 "God gave you both Himself."
T24B8 "The fear of God and of each other comes from each unrecognized belief in specialness."
T24B8 "And God Himself must honor it, or suffer vengeance."
T24B9 "For what is specialness but an attack upon the Will of God?"
T24C2 "Here is a goal that would defeat salvation, and thus run COUNTER to the Will of God."
T24C4 "Its tiny answer, soundless in the melody which pours from God to you eternally in loving praise of what you are, is all you listen to."
T24C4 "You strain your ears to hear ITS soundless voice, and yet the Call of God Himself is soundless to you."
T24C5 "You CAN defend your specialness, but never will you hear the Voice for God beside it."
T24C6 "The shining radiance of the Son of God, so like his Father that the memory of Him springs instantly to mind."
T24C6 "Is it a sacrifice to give up nothing, and to receive the Love of God forever?"
T24C8 "Not one attack you thought you made on him has taken from him the gift that God would have him give to you."
T24C8 "It is not God Who has condemned His Son."
T24C9 "Just one step more, and every vestige of the fear of God will melt away in love."
T24C9 "Yet it is not illusions that have reached this final obstacle that seems to make God and His Heaven so remote that they cannot be reached."
T24C10 "You are alike to God as God is to Himself."
T24C11 "Give him but what he has, remembering God gave Himself to BOTH of you in equal love, that both might share the universe with Him Who chose that love could never be divided and kept separate from what it IS and must forever be."
T24C11 "God's love gave you to him and him to you, BECAUSE He gave Himself."
T24C11 "What is the same as God IS One with Him."
T24C11 "And ONLY specialness could make the truth of God and you AS One seem anything BUT Heaven."
T24C13 "The hope of specialness makes it seem possible God made the body as the prison-house which keeps His Son from Him."
T24C13 "For it DEMANDS a special place God cannot enter, and a hiding-place where none is welcome but your tiny self."
T24C13 "Nothing is sacred here but unto you, and you alone, apart and separate from all your brothers; safe from ALL intrusions of sanity upon illusions; safe from God, and safe for conflict everlasting."
T24C13 "Here are the gates of hell you closed upon yourself, to rule in madness and in loneliness your special kingdom, APART from God, AWAY from truth and from salvation."
T24C14 "The key you threw away God gave your brother, whose holy hands would offer it to you, when you were ready to accept His plan for your salvation in place of yours."
T24C14 "You but emerge from an illusion of what you are, to the acceptance of yourself as God created you."
T24D2 "Inviolate it stands, strongly defended with all your puny might against the Will of God."
T24D2 "And thus it stands against YOURSELF, YOUR enemy, NOT God's."
T24D2 "So does it seem to split you off from God, and make you separate from Him as its defender."
T24D2 "YOU would protect what God created not."
T24D4 "Would God have left His Son in such a state, where safety HAS no meaning?"
T24D4 "A secret vow that what God wants for you will never be, and that you will oppose His Will forever."
T24D5 "God asks for your forgiveness."
T24D5 "And God Himself, Who knows that death is NOT your will, must say, "Thy will be done," because YOU think it is."
T24D7 "And they curse God because He did not make their dream reality."
T24D7 "Curse God and die, but not by Him Who made not death, but only in the dreams."
T24D7 "Open your eyes a little; see the Savior God gave to you that you might look on him, and give him back his birthright."
T24D8 "Such is the Will of God, and of His Son."
T24D8 "Would God condemn HIMSELF to hell and to damnation?"
T24D8 "God calls to you from him to join His Will to save you BOTH from hell."
T24D8 "God asks your mercy on His Son, and on Himself."
T24E6 "Do not defend this senseless dream, in which God is bereft of what He loves, and you remain beyond salvation."
T24E6 "And thus you saved what YOU appointed to be your savior, and crucified the one whom God has given you instead."
T24F6 "His love for God replaces ALL the fear you thought you saw within yourself."
T24F6 "And seeks it still, that each might offer YOU the Love of God."
T24G1 "In him is your assurance God is here, and with you now."
T24G1 "While he is what he is, you can be sure that God is knowable, and WILL be known to you."
T24G2 "See in him God's creation."
T24G2 "Without you, there would be a lack in God, a Heaven incomplete, a Son without a Father."
T24G2 "For what God wills is whole, and part of Him BECAUSE His Will is One."
T24G2 "Your brother's holiness shows you that God is One with him AND you; that what he has is yours BECAUSE you are not separate from him OR from his Father."
T24G3 "Nothing that God created has He failed to lay before you lovingly, as yours forever."
T24G3 "God changes not His Mind about His Son with passing circumstance which has no meaning in eternity where He abides, and you with Him."
T24G4 "Forget not that the healing of God's Son is all the world is for."
T24G4 "Yet it is GIVEN you to be BEYOND its laws in ALL respects, in EVERY way, and EVERY circumstance; in ALL temptation to perceive what is NOT there, and ALL belief God's Son can suffer pain because he sees himself as he is not."
T24G5 "And that is made, not of itself, but through the Voice that speaks for God in everything that lives, and shares His Being."
T24G6 "And let the fear of God no longer hold the vision you were MEANT to see from you."
T24G7 "And where is God Himself but in that part of Him He set forever in your brother's holiness, that YOU might see the truth about yourself set forth at last in terms you recognized and understood?"
T24G8 "His errors can NOT withhold God's blessing from himself, nor you who see him truly."
T24G9 "And both shall see God's glory in His Son, whom you mistook as flesh, and bound to laws that have NO power over him at all."
T24G10 "It CANNOT be what governs part of God holds not for all the rest."
T24G10 "Think, then, how great the Love of God for YOU must be, that He has given you a part of Him, to save from pain and give YOU happiness."
T24G10 "And never doubt but that your specialness will disappear before the Will of God Who loves each part of Him with equal love and care."
T24G12 "Now you are merely asked that you pursue another goal with far LESS vigilance, with little effort and with little time, and with the power of God maintaining it, and promising success."
T24G12 "But a tiny willingness, a nod to God, a greeting to the Christ in you, you find a burden wearisome and tedious, too heavy to be borne."
T24G12 "Yet, to the dedication to the truth as GOD established it, NO sacrifice is asked, NO strain called forth, and all the power of Heaven and the might of truth itself is given to provide the means, and GUARANTEE the goal's accomplishment."
T24H1 "Yet it stands in place of your creations, who ARE Son to you, that you might SHARE the Fatherhood of God, not snatch it FROM Him."
T24H2 "What is this parody of God's creation, that takes the place of YOURS?"
T24H2 "And where are THEY, now that the host of God has found another son that he prefers to them?"
T24H2 "The memory of God shines not alone."
T24H6 "God is a Means as well as End."
T24H11 "Such is the travesty on God's creation."
T24H12 "The Son of God retains his Father's Will."
T25A2 "Yet does the Son of God abide EXACTLY where he is, and walks with him, within his holiness, as plain to see as is his specialness set forth within his body."
T25B4 "YOU are the means for God."
T25B6 "Because His purpose still is One with both the Father AND the Son, He KNOWS the Will of God, and what you REALLY will."
T25C5 "The masterpiece that God has set within this frame is all there IS to see."
T25C5 "But what God has created NEEDS no frame, for what He has created HE supports, and frames within Himself."
T25C5 "The Holy Spirit is the frame God set around the part of Him that YOU would see as separate."
T25C6 "The frame that God has given it but serves HIS purpose, not yours APART from His."
T25C6 "But God has set His masterpiece within a frame that will endure forever, when yours has crumbled into dust."
T25C6 "What God creates is safe from ALL corruption, unchanged and perfect in eternity."
T25C7 "God kept it safe that YOU might look on it, and SEE the holiness that He has given it."
T25C8 "HE is the frame in which YOUR holiness is set, and what God gave him MUST be given you."
T25C9 "God cherishes creation as the perfect Father that He is."
T25C10 "The gratitude of God Himself is freely offered to everyone who shares His Purpose."
T25C11 "YOU are the same, as God Himself is One, and NOT divided in His Will."
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."
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 "NOT as the Law Itself upholds the universe as God created it."
T25D4 "But in some form adapted to the need the Son of God believes he has."
T25D4 "And thus has God protected still His Son, even in error."
T25D10 "The Son of God could NEVER sin, but he CAN wish for what would hurt him."
T25E2 "The Son of God creates to bring him joy, sharing his Father's purpose in his own creation, that his joy might be increased, and God's along with his."
T25E4 "Would you not do this, for the Love of God?"
T25E6 "What aim can supersede the Will of God and of His Son, that Heaven be restored to him for whom it was created as his ONLY home?"
T25F1 "The state of sinlessness is merely this: The WHOLE desire to attack is gone, and so there is no reason to perceive the Son of God as other than he is."
T25F2 "Attack makes Christ your enemy, and God along with Him."
T25F2 "And who would see the Son of God as innocent, and wish him dead?"
T25F3 "And yet, beneath the ego's senseless shrieks, such IS the Call that God has given him, that YOU might hear in him His Call to YOU, and answer by returning unto God what is His own."
T25F4 "The Son of God asks only this of you; that you return to him what is his due, that you may SHARE in it with him."
T25F4 "If you decide against his proper function, the ONLY one he really has in truth, you are depriving him of all the joy he WOULD have found if he fulfilled the role God gave to him."
T25F5 "And how great will be YOUR joy when he is free to offer you the gift of sight God gave to him for you."
T25F5 "He HAS no need but this; that you allow him freedom to complete the task God gave to him."
T25F5 "And AS you see him, so do YOU define the function he will have for you, until you see him differently, and LET him be what God APPOINTED that he be to you."
T25F6 "Against the hatred that the Son of God may cherish toward himself is God believed to be without the power to save what He created from the pain of hell."
T25F6 "But in the love he shows himself is God made free to LET His Will be done."
T25F6 "In each of you, you see the picture of your OWN belief of what the Will of God MUST be for you."
T25G1 "The grace of God rests gently on forgiving eyes, and everything they look on speaks of Him to the beholder."
T25G1 "And, being IN ACCORD with what God wills, he HAS the power to heal and bless all those he looks on with the grace of God upon his sight."
T25G3 "The WISH to see calls down the grace of God upon your eyes, and brings the gift of light that makes sight possible."
T25G3 "God is glad to have you look on him."
T25G4 "Here, where the laws of God do NOT prevail in perfect form, can he yet do ONE perfect thing, and make ONE perfect choice."
T25G6 "The specialness he chose to HURT himself did God appoint to be the means for his salvation, from the very instant that the choice was made."
T25G7 "The Son of God can make NO choice the Holy Spirit can not employ on his BEHALF, and NOT against himself."
T25G7 "In light, you see it is your SPECIAL FUNCTION in the plan to save the Son of God from ALL attack, and let him understand that he is safe, as he has ALWAYS been, and will remain in time and in eternity alike."
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."
T25H2 "Yet IS it possible what God created NOT should SHARE the attributes of His creation, when it OPPOSES it in every way?"
T25H3 "If you could realize NOTHING is changeless BUT the Will of God, this course would not be difficult for you."
T25H3 "It MUST be so that either God is mad, or is this world a place of madness."
T25H4 "If ONE belief so deeply valued here were true, then every Thought God ever had is an illusion."
T25H4 "The rest is up to God, and NOT to you."
T25H5 "For God and His beloved Son do NOT think differently."
T25H6 "And one in which is nothing contradicted that would lead the Son of God to sanity and joy."
T25H8 "Your special function is the special form in which the fact that God is NOT insane appears most sensible and meaningful to you."
T25H8 "The Son of God can NOT be bound by time or place, or anything God did NOT will."
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."
T25H11 "It is God's Will that you remember this, and so emerge from deepest mourning into perfect joy."
T25H11 "Accept the function that has been assigned to you in God's Own plan to show His Son that hell and Heaven are different; NOT the same."
T25H12 "The whole belief that someone loses but reflects the underlying tenet God must be insane."
T25H12 "If THIS were true, then God is mad indeed."
T25H12 "You who believe that God is mad, look carefully at this, and understand that it MUST be that EITHER God OR this must be insane, but hardly both."
T25H13 "And on this single rock of truth can faith in God's eternal saneness rest, in perfect confidence and perfect peace."
T25H14 "Remember ALL temptation is but this; a mad belief that God's insanity would make YOU sane, and GIVE you what you want."
T25H14 "That either God OR you must LOSE to madness, because your aims can NOT be reconciled."
T25H14 "No-one CAN suffer for the Will of God to be fulfilled."
T25H14 "NOT for you alone, but for the Self which IS the Son of God."
T25I5 "God knows not of this."
T25I6 "And so they fear the Holy Spirit, and perceive the wrath of God in Him."
T25I6 "Nor can they trust Him NOT to strike them dead with lightening bolts torn from the fires of Heaven by God's Own angry hand."
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."
T25I7 "And flee the blessing of the Holy Spirit as if He were a messenger from hell, sent from above in treachery and guile, to work God's vengeance on them in the guise of a deliverer and friend."
T25I9 "In God's Own justice does He recognize all you deserve, but understands as well that you can NOT accept it for yourself."
T25I9 "And God rejoices as His Son receives what loving justice KNOWS to be his due."
T25I9 "BECAUSE they are the same, does mercy stand at God's right Hand, and GIVE the Son of God the power to forgive HIMSELF of sin."
T25I10 "God knows of NO injustice."
T25I10 "Yet God ensured that justice WOULD be done unto the Son He loves, and would protect from ALL unfairness you might seek to offer, believing vengeance IS his proper due."
T25I12 "You can be perfect witness to the power of love AND justice, if you understand it is impossible the Son of God COULD merit vengeance."
T25I12 "God's Son has found a witness unto his sinlessness, and NOT his sin."
T25I14 "You have the right to all the universe; to perfect peace, complete deliverance from ALL effects of sin, and to the life eternal, joyous, and complete in EVERY way, as God appointed for His holy Son."
T25I14 "The world deceives, but it can NOT replace God's justice with a version of its own."
T25I14 "For only love IS just, and CAN perceive what justice must accord the Son of God."
T25I14 "Let love decide, and never fear that you, in your unfairness, will deprive yourself of what GOD's justice has allotted you."
T25J2 "God's justice warrants gratitude, NOT fear."
T25J2 "Nothing you give is lost to you or anyone, but cherished and preserved for you in Heaven, where all the treasures given to God's Son are kept for him, and offered anyone who but holds out his hand in willingness they be received."
T25J2 "For God IS fair."
T25J3 "Thus is justice NOT accorded to the Son of God."
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."
T25J6 "Salvation cannot SEEK to help God's Son be MORE unfair than HE has sought to be."
T25J9 "What is God's BELONGS to everyone, and IS his due."
T26B3 "What greater sacrifice could be demanded than that God's Son perceive himself without his Father?"
T26B3 "The memory of God MUST be denied, if ANY sacrifice is asked of ANYONE."
T26B3 "What witness to the wholeness of God's Son is seen within a world of separate bodies, however much he witnesses to truth?"
T26B5 "His holiness gives life to you, who CANNOT die because his sinlessness is known to God, and can no more be sacrificed by you than can the light in you be blotted out because he sees it not."
T26B6 "You who would make a sacrifice of life, and make your eyes and ears bear witness to the death of God and of His holy Son, think not that you have power to make of them what God willed not they be."
T26B6 "In Heaven God's Son is NOT imprisoned in a body, nor is sacrificed in solitude to sin."
T26B7 "God's justice rests in gentleness upon His Son, and keeps him safe from ALL injustices the world would lay upon him."
T26B7 "What is the Holy Spirit's Special Function but to release the holy Son of God from the imprisonment he made, to KEEP himself from justice?"
T26C2 "If THIS were true, then God WOULD be unfair; sin WOULD be possible, attack be justified, and vengeance fair."
T26C3 "Think not the limits YOU impose on what you see can limit God in ANY way."
T26C3 "It does injustice to the Son of God, and therefore is not true."
T26C3 "They are mistakes from which the Son of God IS suffering, but needlessly."
T26C3 "He makes but one judgment; that to hurt God's Son MUST be unfair, and therefore is not so."
T26C4 "If the Son of God is guilty, then is he condemned, and he DESERVES no mercy from the God of justice."
T26C4 "But ask not God to punish him because YOU find him guilty, and would have him die."
T26C4 "God OFFERS you the means to see his innocence."
T26C5 "If God is just, then CAN there be NO problems that justice cannot solve."
T26C6 "And in its place, the Love of God can be remembered, and will shine away all memory of sacrifice and loss."
T26D1 "Complexity is not of God."
T26D4 "Nothing the Son of God believes can be destroyed."
T26E4 "Here the Son of God Himself comes to receive each gift that brings him nearer to his home."
T26E5 "And how GREAT will be the joy in Heaven when you join the mighty chorus to the Love of God."
T26F3 "God gave His Teacher to REPLACE the one you made, NOT to CONFLICT with it."
T26F3 "What God gave Answer to IS answered, and IS gone."
T26F5 "What disappeared too quickly to affect the simple knowledge of the Son of God, can hardly still be there for you to choose to be your teacher."
T26F7 "And do you WANT that fearful instant kept, when Heaven seemed to disappear, and God was feared and made a symbol of your hate?"
T26F8 "Can sin withstand the Will of God?"
T26F9 "No past illusions have the power to keep you in a place of death, a vault God's Son entered an instant, to be instantly restored unto His Father's Perfect Love."
T26F9 "The Son that God created is as free as God created him."
T26F9 "And will you not forgive him now, because he made an error in the past that God remembers not, and is not there?"
T26F11 "This terrible illusion was denied in but the time it took for God to give His Answer to illusion for ALL time and EVERY circumstance."
T26F12 "There IS no hindrance to the Will of God, nor any need that you repeat again a journey that was over long ago."
T26G2 "This is no friendship worthy of God's Son, nor one with which he could remain content."
T26G2 "But God has given him a better Friend, in whom all power in earth and Heaven rests."
T26G2 "What God appointed HAS no substitute."
T26G3 "Who dwells with shadows is alone indeed, and loneliness is NOT the Will of God."
T26G3 "Would you allow one shadow to usurp the throne that God appointed for your Friend, if you but realized ITS emptiness has left YOURS empty and unoccupied?"
T26G3 "Make NO illusion friend, for if you do, it CAN but take the place of him whom God has called your Friend."
T26H2 "The Son of God perceives what he would see, because perception IS a wish fulfilled."
T26H2 "Yet has God given Answer to the world of sickness, Which applies to ALL its forms."
T26H3 "God's Answer is eternal, though It operates in time, where It is needed."
T26H3 "But, because It IS of God, the laws of time do not affect Its workings."
T26H3 "God's Answer lies where the belief in sin MUST be, for only there can its effects be utterly undone, and without cause."
T26H5 "Not one is true in ANY way, and all must yield with equal ease to what God gave as Answer to them all."
T26H5 "God's Will is One."
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 "Yet is this wish in line with Heaven's state, and not in OPPOSITION to God's Will."
T26H9 "And EVERY miracle is possible the INSTANT that the Son of God perceives his wishes and the Will of God are One."
T26H10 "What is the Will of God?"
T26H10 "This is the miracle by which creation became YOUR function, sharing it with God."
T26H10 "Here does the Son of God ask NOT too much, but FAR too little."
T26H12 "God wills you learn what always has been true."
T26H12 "Nor never will success BE possible in trying to deceive the Son of God."
T26H13 "God's Son could never be content with LESS than full salvation, and ESCAPE from guilt."
T26H13 "If loss in ANY form is possible, then is God's Son made incomplete and not himself."
T26H14 "God gave to ALL illusions that were made ANOTHER purpose that would justify a miracle, WHATEVER form they took."
T26H14 "In every miracle ALL healing lies, for God gave Answer to them all as one."
T26H14 "What God calls one will be forever one, NOT separate."
T26H14 "Heaven is shining on the Son of God."
T26H15 "Each instant is the Son of God reborn, until he chooses NOT to die again."
T26H15 "To you to whom it has been given to save the Son of God from crucifixion and from hell and death, all glory be forever."
T26H15 "For you HAVE power to save the Son of God, because his Father willed that it be so."
T26H16 "To use the power God has given you as He would have it used is natural."
T26H16 "The gift of God to you is limitless."
T26H16 "Abide in peace, where God would have you be."
T26H16 "There is no difference among the Sons of God."
T26H17 "Call on your brother's name, and God will answer, for on Him you call."
T26H17 "And by this little gift of truth but let to be itself; the Son of God allowed to be himself, and all creation freed to call upon the Name of God as one."
T26I6 "You have been told that everything brings good that comes from God."
T26J1 "Think but how holy you must be, from whom the Voice for God calls lovingly unto your brother, that you may awake in him the Voice that answers to YOUR call."
T26J1 "However much you wish he be condemned, God is in him."
T26J2 "Forget not that a shadow held between your brother and yourself obscures the Face of Christ and memory of God."
T26J7 "Now is the temple of the living God rebuilt as host again to Him by Whom it was created."
T26J7 "In gentle gratitude do God the Father AND the Son return to what is Theirs, and will forever be."
T26K2 "God limits not."
T26K3 "Yet it is YOU who ask this of yourself, in deep injustice to the Son of God."
T26K4 "Is it not retribution for your own attack upon the Son of God you seek?"
T27A1 "If it could occur at all, it would entail the whole of God's creation, and the Father with the sacrifice of his beloved Son."
T27B1 "Whenever you consent to suffer pain, to be deprived, unfairly treated, or in need of ANYTHING, you but accuse your brother of attack upon God's Son."
T27C8 "And laughter will REPLACE your sighs BECAUSE God's Son remembered that he IS God's Son."
T27C10 "What is the separation but a wish to take God's Function from Him and DENY that it is His?"
T27D4 "For what you leave as vacant GOD will fill, and where HE is, there MUST the truth abide."
T27D6 "And thus is God left free to take the final step Himself."
T27E1 "Yet, if God gave an Answer, there MUST be a way in which your problems are resolved, for what He wills already has been done."
T27E2 "Therefore, God must have given you a way of reaching to ANOTHER state of mind, in which the answer is ALREADY THERE."
T27F10 "God thanks you for your healing, for He knows it is a gift of love unto His Son, and therefore is it given unto Him."
T27G3 "And otherwise he lies, if you should call him by the Holy Name of God Himself."
T27G4 "God's Witness sees no witnesses AGAINST the body."
T27G4 "Nor COULD it tell a Part of God Himself what It should feel, and what Its Function is."
T27G6 "And God Himself has GUARANTEED the strength of miracles for what they witness TO."
T27H13 "Nothing more fearful than an idle dream has terrified God's Son, and made him think that he has lost his innocence, denied his Father, and made war upon himself."
T27H13 "God willed he waken gently, and with joy."
T27I6 "Into eternity, where all is one, there crept a tiny, mad idea, at which the Son of God remembered not to laugh."
T27I6 "A timelessness in which is time made real; a Part of God Which can attack Itself; a separate brother as an enemy; a mind WITHIN a body; all are forms of circularity, whose ending starts at its beginning, ending at its cause."
T27I9 "Perhaps you come in tears, but hear Him say, "My brother, Holy Son of God, behold your idle dream, in which this could occur," and you will leave the holy instant with your laughter and your brother's JOINED with His."
T28A2 "Memory, like perception, is a skill made up by you, to take the place of what God GAVE in your creation."
T28B1 "The Holy Spirit can indeed make use of memory, for God Himself is there."
T28B8 "What YOUR remembering would witness to, is but the fear of God."
T28B9 "Born out of sharing, there can BE no pause in time to cause the miracle delay in hastening to all unquiet minds, and bringing them an instant's stillness, when the memory of God returns to them."
T28B10 "For in that instant is His memory allowed to offer all its treasures to the Son of God, for whom they have been kept."
T28B10 "For in that instant does the Son of God do NOTHING that would make himself afraid."
T28B11 "How instantly the memory of God arises in the mind that has no fear to keep the memory away."
T28B11 "The stillness speaks in gentle sounds of love the Son of God remembers from BEFORE his own remembering came IN BETWEEN the present and the past, to shut them out."
T28B12 "Now is the Son of God at last aware of PRESENT Cause and Its benign effects."
T28B12 "And where is sacrifice, when memory of God has come to TAKE THE PLACE of loss?"
T28B13 "What better way to close the little gap between illusions and reality than to allow the memory of God to flow ACROSS it, making it a bridge an instant will suffice to reach beyond?"
T28B13 "For God has closed it with Himself."
T28C1 "It is BECAUSE he is God's Son that he must ALSO be a father, who creates as God created him."
T28C3 "Always in sickness does the Son of God attempt to make himself his cause, and NOT allow himself to be his Father's Son."
T28D3 "Thus are you JOINED in sickness, to preserve the little gap unhealed, where sickness is kept carefully protected, cherished, and upheld by firm belief, lest God should come to bridge the little gap that leads to Him."
T28D5 "God builds the bridge, but only in the space left clean and vacant by the miracle."
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?"
T28E7 "The Holy Spirit's Function is to take the broken picture of the Son of God, and put the pieces into place again."
T28E8 "How holy is the smallest grain of sand, when it is recognized as being part of the completed picture of God's Son."
T28E8 "And every aspect of the Son of God is just the same as every other part."
T28E9 "What God has given cannot BE a loss, and what is not of Him has NO effects."
T28E9 "Your willingness to LET illusions go is all the Healer of God's Son requires."
T28F1 "God is the ALTERNATE to dreams of fear."
T28F1 "Except you share it, NOTHING can exist, and YOU exist because God shared His Will with you, that His creation might create."
T28F5 "What is there God created can be sick?"
T28G5 "Whoever says, "There IS no gap between my mind and yours," has kept GOD's promise, NOT his tiny oath to be forever faithful unto death."
T28G5 "And he will keep the promise that you make with him, because it is the one which he has made to God, as God has made to him."
T28G6 "God keeps His promises; His Son keeps his."
T28G6 "Yet God reminds him of it every time he does not share a promise to be sick, but lets his mind be healed and unified."
T28G6 "His secret vows are powerless before the Will of God, Whose promises he shares."
T28G6 "And what he substitutes is NOT his will, who has made promise of himself to God."
T28H1 "God asks for nothing, and His Son, like Him, need ask for nothing."
T28H1 "A space where God is not, a gap between the Father and the Son is NOT the Will of either, who have promised to be One."
T28H1 "God's promise is a promise to HIMSELF, and there is no-one who could BE untrue to what He wills as part of what He IS."
T28H2 "The beautiful relationship you have with all your brothers is a part of you BECAUSE it is a part of God Himself."
T28H3 "And yet, BECAUSE it does, it can be seen as NOT your home, but merely as an aid to help you reach the home where God abides."
T28H4 "It serves to help the HEALING of God's Son, and, for THIS purpose, it cannot BE sick."
T28H7 "It is an ark of safety, resting on God's promise, that His Son is safe forever in Himself."
T28H7 "From here, the body can be seen as what it is, and neither less nor more in worth than the extent to which it can be used to liberate God's Son unto his home."
T29A1 "There is no time, no place, no state where God is absent."
T29A2 "Here is the fear of God most plainly seen."
T29A2 "No-one who hates but is afraid of love, and therefore MUST he be afraid of God."
T29B5 "And there ARE overtones of seeming fear around the happy message "God is Love.""
T29B5 "Without the fear of God, what could induce you to abandon Him?"
T29B5 "Would you ALLOW the body to say "No" to Heaven's calling, were you not afraid to find a LOSS of self in finding God?"
T29C1 "Is it not because you see it as the road to hell, instead of looking on it as a simple way, without a sacrifice or ANY loss, to find yourself in Heaven and in God?"
T29C3 "No more is pain your friend and guilt your god, and you should WELCOME the effects of love."
T29C8 "For it asks that God be LESS than all He really is."
T29C8 "And what is GONE from Him becomes your god, PROTECTING you from being part of Him."
T29C9 "The body that is asked to be a god WILL be attacked, because its nothingness has not been recognized."
T29C10 "As something, is the body asked to be God's enemy, replacing what He is with littleness and limit and despair."
T29C10 "He lives in God, and it is this that makes him Savior unto YOU, and ONLY this."
T29D1 "Only those who think that God is lessened by their strength could fail to understand this must be so."
T29D2 "No more, perhaps, than just a tiny spark, a space of light created in the dark, where God shines still."
T29D3 "And as you see him shining in the space of light where God abides within the darkness, you will see that God Himself is where his body is."
T29D4 "There, in its place, God's Witness has set forth the gentle way of kindness to God's Son."
T29D5 "How holy are you, that the Son of God can be your Savior in the midst of dreams of desolation and disaster."
T29F1 "There is a resting place so still no sound except a hymn to Heaven rises up to gladden God the Father and the Son."
T29F2 "The still infinity of endless peace surrounds you gently in its soft embrace, so strong and quiet, tranquil in the might of its Creator, nothing can intrude upon the sacred Son of God within."
T29F2 "Here is the role the Holy Spirit gives to you who wait upon the Son of God, and would behold him waken and be glad: He is a part of you, and you of him, BECAUSE he is his Father's Son, and not for ANY purpose you may see in him."
T29F3 "This sacred Son of God is like yourself; the mirror of his Father's Love for you, the soft reminder of his Father's Love by which he was created, and which still abides in him, as It abides in you."
T29F3 "Be very still, and hear God's Voice in him, and let It tell you what his function is."
T29F3 "He was created that YOU might be whole, for only the complete can be a part of God's Completion, Which created you."
T29F5 "For you would understand how great the cost of holding anything God did not give in minds that can direct the hand to bless, and lead God's Son unto His Father's house."
T29F5 "If God esteems him worthy of Himself, would YOU attack him with the hands of hate?"
T29G2 "God's Son can never change by what men made of him."
T29G3 "Think not that YOU can set a goal unlike God's Purpose FOR you, and establish it as changeless and eternal."
T29G3 "Change is the gift of God He gave to all that YOU would make eternal, to ensure that ONLY Heaven would not pass away."
T29G4 "You CANNOT change, because your Function HAS been fixed by God."
T29G4 "And where it once held seeming sway is now restored the Function God established for His Son in full awareness."
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 "How lovely is the world whose purpose is forgiveness of God's Son!"
T29H1 "Each idol that you worship when God calls will never answer in His place."
T29H3 "Yet does he seek to kill God's Son within, and PROVE that he is victor over him."
T29H5 "God dwells within, and your completion lies in Him."
T29H7 "Your holy minds are altars unto God, and where He is NO idols can abide."
T29H8 "The fear of God is but the fear of loss of idols."
T29H8 "An idol CANNOT take the place of God."
T29I4 "Its form is nowhere, for its source abides within your mind where God abideth not."
T29I4 "What hand could be held up to block God's way; whose voice could make demands He enter not?"
T29I6 "Here does the changeless change; the peace of God, forever given to all living things, give way to chaos."
T29I6 "And the Son of God, as perfect, sinless, and as loving as his Father, come to hate a little while; to suffer pain, and finally to die."
T29I7 "An idol is beyond where God has set all things forever, and has left no room for anything EXCEPT His Will to be."
T29I7 "Nothing and nowhere MUST an idol be, while God is everything and everywhere."
T29I8 "And it is THIS that is against God's Will."
T29I9 "God has not many sons, but only One."
T29I9 "In Heaven would the Son of God but laugh, if idols could intrude upon his peace."
T29I9 "If Heaven is within why would you seek for idols which would make of Heaven less, to give you MORE than God bestowed upon your brother AND on you, as One with Him?"
T29I9 "God GAVE you all there is."
T29I9 "No idol can establish you as MORE than God."
T29J1 "What happened to the holy Son of God, that this could BE his wish; to let himself fall lower than the stones upon the ground, and look to idols that they raise him up?"
T29J1 "A dream of judgment came into the mind that God created perfect as Himself."
T29J1 "And in that dream was Heaven changed to hell, and God made enemy unto His Son."
T29J3 "Judgment is an INjustice to God's Son, and it IS justice that who judges HIM will not escape the penalty he laid upon HIMSELF within the dream he made."
T29J3 "God knows of justice; NOT of penalty."
T29J8 "Forgiveness, once complete, brings timelessness so close the song of Heaven can be heard, not with the ears, but with the holiness that never left the altar which abides forever deep within the Son of God."
T30B10 "For they are made with idols or with God."
T30B11 "NOTHING can be caused without some form of union, be it with a dream of judgment or the Voice for God."
T30C1 "God ASKS you do your will."
T30C1 "And not one Thought that God has ever had but waited for your blessing to be born."
T30C1 "God is no enemy to you."
T30C2 "And would God leave His Son WITHOUT what he has chosen for himself?"
T30C2 "God but ensured that you would never LOSE your will, when He gave you His perfect Answer."
T30C2 "God would not have His Son made prisoner to what he does not want."
T30C3 "Now hear God speak to you through Him Who is His Voice, and YOURS as well, reminding you that it is NOT your will to hate, and be a prisoner to fear, a slave to death, a LITTLE creature with a LITTLE life."
T30C3 "What lies in you has joined with God Himself in all creation's birth."
T30C4 "If YOU be prisoner, then God Himself could not be free."
T30C4 "For what is done to him whom God so loves is done to God Himself."
T30C5 "God turns to YOU to ask the world be saved, for by your OWN salvation is it healed."
T30C5 "And now is God forgiven, for you chose to look upon your brother as a friend."
T30D2 "What form can be a substitute for God the Father's Love?"
T30D2 "What form can take the place of all the love in the divinity of God the Son?"
T30D4 "Your will to be complete IS but God's will, and this is given you BY being His."
T30D4 "God knows not form."
T30D4 "Creation gives no SEPARATE person and no SEPARATE thing the power to complete the Son of God."
T30D4 "What idol CAN be called upon to give the Son of God what he already HAS?"
T30D5 "Completion is the FUNCTION of God's Son."
T30D5 "If there were change in him; if he could be reduced to ANY form and limited to what is NOT in him, he would not BE as God created him."
T30D5 "NOT in any form that would content you not, but in the whole, completely lovely Thought God holds of you."
T30D6 "Nothing that God knows not exists."
T30D6 "For thoughts endure as long as does the mind that thought of them, and in the Mind of God there is no ending, nor a time in which His Thoughts were absent, or could suffer change."
T30D6 "And so there ARE no separate parts in what exists within God's Mind."
T30D7 "The Thought God holds of you is perfectly unchanged by your forgetting."
T30D7 "The Thoughts of God are FAR beyond all change, and shine forever."
T30D8 "The Thought God holds of you is like a star, unchangeable in an eternal sky."
T30D9 "Beyond all idols is the Thought God holds of you."
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."
T30D9 "In perfect sureness of Its changelessness and of Its rest in Its eternal home, the Thought God holds of you has never left the Mind of Its Creator, Whom It knows as Its Creator knows that It is there."
T30D10 "Where could the Thought God holds of you EXIST but where you are?"
T30D10 "An idol OR the Thought God holds of you is your reality."
T30D10 "Forget not, then, that idols MUST keep hidden what you are, NOT from the Mind of God, but from your own."
T30D10 "But you, the holy Son of God Himself, are unaware of your reality."
T30E4 "Reality observes the laws of God, and NOT the rules you set."
T30E6 "God's Son needs NO defense against his dreams."
T30E6 "For thus the Son of God declares that he is free of idols."
T30E7 "And you are asked to let yourself be free of all the dreams of what you never were, and seek no more to substitute the strength of idle wishes for the Will of God."
T30E8 "And the Son of God CAN have no need of them."
T30E8 "What could God's plan for his salvation BE, except a means to give him to Himself?"
T30F4 "The final step is God's, because it is but God Who could create a perfect Son, and share His Fatherhood with him."
T30F4 "And so is Heaven's Son prepared to be Himself, and to remember that the Son of God knows everything his Father understands, and understands it perfectly with Him."
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 "Yet God need not create His Son AGAIN, that what is his be given BACK to him."
T30F5 "And what the Son of God knew in creation he MUST know again."
T30F6 "For He MUST be unremembered 'til His Son has reached BEYOND forgiveness to the Love of God."
T30F9 "The Will of God forever lies in those whose hands are joined."
T30F9 "And thus the Will of God MUST reach to their awareness."
T30G4 "And recognizing God is just, it seems impossible His pardon COULD be real."
T30G4 "Thus is the fear of God the sure result of seeing pardon as unmerited."
T30G4 "No-one who sees himself as guilty CAN avoid the fear of God."
T30G4 "Nor will you think that God intends for you a fearful judgment which your brother does not merit."
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."
T30G7 "You must forgive God's Son ENTIRELY."
T30G7 "And so there cannot be appearances which have replaced the truth about God's Son."
T30G8 "God's Son is perfect, or he cannot be God's Son."
T30G9 "But what you see as having power to make an idol of the Son of God, you will NOT pardon."
T30H1 "Would God have left the meaning of the world to YOUR interpretation?"
T30I3 "What you ask IS given you, but not of God Who knows no limits."
T30I4 "CHOOSE what you would heal, and He Who gives all miracles has not been given freedom to bestow His gifts upon God's Son."
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."
T31A4 "You who have taught yourselves the Son of God is guilty, say not that you cannot learn the simple things salvation teaches you."
T31A5 "It was NOT made to do the Will of God, but to uphold a wish that It COULD be opposed, and that a will APART from It was yet more real than It."
T31A6 "His simple lessons in forgiveness have a power mightier than yours, because they call from God and from your Self to you."
T31A6 "God willed not His Son forget Him."
T31A6 "Which outcome is inevitable, sure as God, and far beyond all doubts or question?"
T31A7 "The certain outcome of the lesson that God's Son is guilty is the world you see."
T31A7 "However much you may have overlearned your chosen task, the lesson which reflects the Love of God is stronger still."
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."
T31A9 "The soft, eternal calling of each part of God's creation to the whole is heard throughout the world this second lesson brings."
T31A9 "The Christ in you remembers God with all the certainty with which He knows His Love."
T31A9 "For God were fear indeed, if he whom He created innocent could be a slave to guilt."
T31A9 "God's perfect Son remembers his creation."
T31A10 "The fear of God results as surely from the lesson that His Son is guilty as God's Love must be remembered when he LEARNS his innocence."
T31A10 "He will appear when you have answered Him, and you will know in Him that God is Love."
T31B6 "BECAUSE he is your equal in God's Love will YOU be saved from all appearances, and answer to the Christ Who calls to you."
T31B6 "Forget the dismal lessons that you learned about this Son of God who calls to you."
T31B6 "Because He hears one Voice, He cannot hear a DIFFERENT answer from the one He gave when God appointed Him His only Son."
T31C6 "For God has said there IS no sacrifice that can be asked; there IS no sacrifice that can be made."
T31D9 "For God IS merciful, and did not let HIS Son abandon Him."
T31E1 "It is an idol, made to take the place of your reality as Son of God."
T31F4 "What COULD there be within the universe that God created that must still be done?"
T31F4 "For God Himself hath said, "Thy will be done.""
T31F5 "You who believe that you can choose to see the Son of God as you would have him be, forget not that no CONCEPT of yourself will stand against the truth of what you are."
T31F6 "Thy will be done, you holy Child of God."
T31G4 "For you will not interpret what you see without the Aid that God has given you."
T31G5 "And let your cruel concept of yourself be changed to one which brings the peace of God."
T31G9 "The veil across the Face of Christ, the fear of God and of salvation, and the love of guilt and death, - they all are different names for just ONE error; that there is a space between you and your brother, kept apart by an illusion of yourself which holds him off from you, and you away from him."
T31G10 "To everyone has God entrusted all, because a PARTIAL savior would be one who is but partly saved."
T31G10 "The holy ones whom God has given each of you to save are everyone you meet or look upon, not knowing who they are; all those you saw an instant and forgot, and those you knew a long while since, and those you will yet meet, the unremembered and the not yet born."
T31G10 "For God has given you His Son to save from every concept that he ever held."
T31G11 "Yet while you wish to stay in hell, how COULD you be the savior of the Son of God?"
T31G15 "Can you to whom God says, "Release My Son" be tempted NOT to listen, when you learn that it is YOU for whom He asks release?"
T31H1 "It would persuade the holy Son of God he is a body, born in what must die, unable to escape its frailty, and bound by what it orders him to feel."
T31H3 "He would remove all misery from you whom God created altars unto joy."
T31H3 "His strength is yours because He is the Self that God created as His ONLY Son."
T31H3 "The images you make can not prevail against what God Himself would have you be."
T31H4 "They will redeem the world, for they are joined to all the power of the Will of God."
T31H5 "Learn, then, the happy habit of response to ALL temptation to perceive yourself as weak and miserable with these words: "I am as God created me."
T31H5 "Thus is Christ's strength INVITED to prevail, replacing all your weakness with the strength that comes from God, and that can NEVER fail."
T31H6 "You ARE as God created you, and so is every living thing you look upon, REGARDLESS of the images you see."
T31H6 "A miracle has come to heal God's Son, and close the door upon his dreams of weakness, opening the way to his salvation and release."
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."
T31H8 "And God ordained, in loving kindness, that it BE for you."
T31H9 "God has ordained I cannot call in vain."
W12L5 "Beneath your words is written the Word of God."
W13L2 "It represents a situation in which God and the ego "challenge" each other as to whose meaning is to be written in the empty space which meaninglessness provides."
W13L4 "Then close your eyes and conclude with: "A meaningless world engenders fear because I think I am in competition with God.""
W14L1 "What God did not create does not exist."
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 "God did not create it, and so it is not real."
W14L4 "Say, for example: "God did not create that war, and so it is not real.""
W14L4 ""God did not create that airplane crash, and so it is not real.""
W14L4 ""God did not create that disaster (specify) so it is not real.""
W14L4 ""God did not create that illness (specify with name of person) and so it is not real.""
W14L5 "For example, do not say, "God did not create illness," but, "God did not create cancer," or heart attacks, or whatever may arouse fear in you."
W14L6 "What God did not create can only be in your own mind apart from His."
W14L6 ""God did not create a meaningless world.""
W14L7 "Say: "God did not create a meaningless world."
W19L2 "And salvation must be possible because it is the Will of God."
W20L3 "God has one Son, and he is the resurrection and the life."
W29L2 "Certainly God is not in a table, for example, as you see it."
W29L5 "For example, a suitable list might include: "God is in this coat hanger.""
W29L5 ""God is in this magazine.""
W29L5 ""God is in this finger.""
W29L5 ""God is in this lamp.""
W29L5 ""God is in that body.""
W29L5 ""God is in that door.""
W29L5 ""God is in that wastebasket.""
W35L7 "After you have named each one, add: "But my mind is part of God's."
W36L1 "You are holy because your mind is part of God's."
W36L1 "If your mind is part of God's you must be sinless, or a part of His Mind would be sinful."
W37L1 "And he is entitled to everything, because it is his birthright as a Son of God."
W38L1 "Your holiness is totally unlimited in its power because it establishes you as a Son of God, at one with the Mind of his Creator."
W38L1 "Through your holiness the power of God is made manifest."
W38L1 "Through your holiness the power of God is made available."
W38L1 "And there is nothing the power of God cannot do."
W38L2 "If you are holy, so is everything God created."
W38L5 "You might like, for example, to include thoughts such as: "There is nothing my holiness cannot do because the power of God lies in it.""
W39L4 "God does not know unholiness."
W40L3 "Repeat today's idea, and then add several of the attributes which you associate with being a Son of God, applying them to yourself."
W40L3 "One practice period might, for example, consist of the following: "I am blessed as a Son of God."
W40L3 "Another might be something as follows: "I am blessed as a Son of God."
W40L3 "If only a brief period is available, merely telling yourself that you are blessed as a Son of God will do."
W41L4 "Nothing can destroy your peace of mind because God goes with you wherever you go."
W41L8 "It is quite possible to reach God."
W41L10 "You can indeed afford to laugh at fear thoughts, remembering that God goes with you wherever you go."
W42L1 "You will see because it is the Will of God."
W42L2 "God is indeed your strength, and what He gives is truly given."
W42L2 "Such is the strength of God."
W42L4 "God gives truly.""
W42L4 "or, "God's gifts to me must be mine because He gave them to me.""
W43L1 "Perception is not an attribute of God."
W43L1 "Without this link with God, perception would have replaced knowledge forever in your minds."
W43L1 "With this link with God, perception will become so changed and purified that it will lead to knowledge."
W43L2 "In God you cannot see."
W43L2 "Perception has no function in God, and does not exist."
W43L2 "Made by the Son of God for an unholy purpose, it must become the means for the restoration of his holiness to his awareness."
W43L2 "Yet does the Holy Spirit give it a meaning very close to God's."
W43L2 "Healed perception becomes the means by which the Son of God forgives his brother and thus forgives himself."
W43L3 "You cannot see apart from God because you cannot be apart from God."
W43L3 "If vision is real, and it is real to the extent to which it shares the Holy Spirit's purpose, then you cannot see apart from God."
W43L4 "You might say, for example: "God is my Source."
W43L4 ""God is my Source."
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."
W43L7 "When you are with someone else, for example, try to remember to tell him silently: "God is my Source."
W43L8 "For this kind of application, use this form: "God is my Source."
W44L6 "God is the Light in which you see."
W45L2 "You think with the Mind of God."
W45L2 "Nor do the thoughts you think with the Mind of God leave your mind, because thoughts do not leave their source."
W45L2 "Therefore your thoughts are in the Mind of God, as you are."
W45L3 "What is thought by the Mind of God is eternal, being part of creation."
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."
W45L5 "Instead, we will try to recognize that only what God would have us do is possible."
W45L5 "We will also try to understand that only what God would have us do is what we want to do."
W45L5 "It is the Will of God."
W45L6 "Under all the senseless thoughts and mad ideas with which you have cluttered up your mind are the thoughts which you thought with God in the beginning."
W45L7 "Here is your mind joined with the Mind of God."
W45L8 "For this kind of practice only one thing is necessary; approach it as you would an altar dedicated in Heaven itself to God the Father and God the Son."
W45L9 "In using the shorter form for applying today's idea, try to remember how important it is to you to understand the holiness of the mind that thinks with God."
W46L1 "God does not forgive because He has never condemned."
W46L2 "Although God does not forgive, His Love is nevertheless the basis of forgiveness."
W46L2 "Forgiveness thus undoes what fear has produced, returning the mind to the awareness of God."
W46L4 "Mention each one by name, and say: "God is the Love in which I forgive you, (name)""
W46L5 "After you have applied the idea for today to all those who have come to mind, tell yourself: "God is the Love in which I forgive myself.""
W46L5 " Then devote the remainder of the practice period to offering related ideas such as: "God is the Love with which I love myself.""
W46L5 ""God is the Love in which I am blessed.""
W46L6 "You might say, for example: "I cannot be guilty because I am a Son of God.""
W46L6 ""No fear is possible in a mind beloved of God.""
W46L7 "In this event, tell him silently: "God is the Love in which I forgive you.""
W47L3 "God is your safety in every circumstance."
W47L3 "There are no exceptions because God has no exceptions."
W47L4 "Then spend a minute or two in searching for situations in your life which you have invested with fear, dismissing each one by telling yourself, "God is the Strength in which I trust.""
W47L5 "But the strength of God in you is successful in all things."
W47L7 "There is a place in you where the strength of God abides."
W47L8 "Remember that peace is your right because you are giving your trust to the strength of God."
W48L3 "The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind, not necessarily in a place which you recognize as yet, you have remembered God and let His strength take the place of yours."
W49L1 "It is quite possible to listen to God's Voice all day without interrupting your regular activities in any way."
W49L1 "The part of your mind in which truth abides is in constant communication with God, whether you are aware of it or not."
W49L2 "The part that is listening to the Voice of God is calm, always at rest and wholly certain."
W49L2 "Try to hear God's Voice call to you lovingly, reminding you that your Creator has not forgotten His Son."
W49L3 "We will try actually to hear the Voice reminding you of God and of your Self."
W49L3 "We will approach this happiest and holiest of thoughts with confidence, knowing that in doing so we are joining our will with the Will of God."
W49L4 "Go past all the raucous shrieks and sick imaginings that cover your real thoughts and obscure your eternal link with God."
W49L4 "We are trying to reach God."
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."
W50L2 "All these things are your replacements for the Love of God."
W50L3 "Only the Love of God will protect you in all circumstances."
W50L3 "It will transport you into a state of mind which nothing can threaten, nothing can disturb, and nothing can intrude upon the eternal calm of the Son of God."
W50L4 "Put all your faith in the Love of God within you, eternal, changeless and forever unfailing."
W50L4 "Through the Love of God in you, you can resolve all seeming difficulties without effort and in sure confidence."
W50L5 "Let no idle and foolish thoughts enter to disturb the holy mind of the Son of God."
W51L4 "The thoughts of which I am aware do not mean anything because I am trying to think without God."
W51L4 "My real thoughts are the thoughts I think with God."
W51L4 ""My" thoughts are meaningless, but all creation lies in the Thoughts I think with God."
W52L1 "Nothing in God's creation is affected in any way by this confusion of mine."
W52L2 "And I will look with God on all that I failed to see before."
W52L3 "Let me understand that I am trying to use time against God."
W53L4 "14) "God did not create a meaningless world.""
W53L4 "How can a meaningless world exist if God did not create it?"
W53L5 "Yet God's way is sure."
W54L4 "A Son of God cannot think or speak or act in vain."
W54L4 "It is therefore in my power to change every mind along with mine, for mine is the power of God."
W54L5 "I would look upon the real world, and let it teach me that my will and the Will of God are one."
W55L1 "This cannot be what God created for His beloved Son."
W55L1 "The very fact that I see such things is proof that I do not understand God."
W55L2 "It is anything but a reflection of the Love of God and the love of His Son."
W55L2 "My loving thoughts will save me from this perception of the world, and give me the peace God intended me to have."
W55L4 "I am willing to follow the Guide God has given me to find out what my own best interests are, recognizing that I cannot perceive them by myself."
W56L1 "But God has kept my inheritance safe for me."
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."
W56L4 "29) "God is in everything I see.""
W56L4 "God is still everywhere and in everything forever."
W56L5 "30) "God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.""
W56L5 "It has been kept for me in the Mind of God, Who has not left His Thoughts."
W57L2 "I have deluded myself into believing it is possible to imprison the Son of God."
W57L2 "The Son of God must be forever free."
W57L2 "He is as God created him, and not what I would make of him."
W57L2 "He is where God would have him be, and not where I thought to hold him prisoner."
W57L3 "I see the world as a prison for God's Son."
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 "35) "My mind is part of God's."
W58L3 "In the presence of my holiness, which I share with God Himself, all idols vanish."
W58L4 "And because I am unafraid, everyone must share in my understanding, which is the gift of God to me and to the world."
W58L5 "40) "I am blessed as a Son of God.""
W58L5 "I am blessed as a Son of God."
W58L5 "All good things are mine because God intended them for me."
W59L1 "41) "God goes with me wherever I go.""
W59L1 "How can I be alone when God always goes with me?"
W59L1 "I am perfect because God goes with me wherever I go."
W59L2 "42) "God is my strength."
W59L2 "Let me be willing to exchange my pitiful illusion of seeing for the vision that is given by God."
W59L3 "43) "God is my Source."
W59L3 "I can see what God wants me to see."
W59L4 "44) "God is the Light in which I see.""
W59L4 "God is the only Light."
W59L4 "Now it is given me to understand that God is the Light in which I see."
W59L5 "45) "God is the Mind with which I think.""
W59L5 "I have no thoughts which I do not share with God."
W60L1 "46) "God is the Love in which I forgive.""
W60L1 "God does not forgive because He has never condemned."
W60L1 "It is the reflection of God's Love on earth."
W60L1 "It will bring me near enough to Heaven that the Love of God can reach down to me and raise me to my home."
W60L2 "47) "God is the Strength in which I trust.""
W60L2 "It is through the strength of God in me, which I am remembering as I forgive."
W60L4 "49) "God's Voice speaks to me all through the day.""
W60L4 "There is not a moment in which God's Voice ceases to call on my forgiveness to save me."
W60L4 "There is nowhere else I can go, because God's Voice is the only voice and the only guide that has been given to His Son."
W60L5 "50) "I am sustained by the Love of God.""
W60L5 "As I listen to God's Voice, I am sustained by His Love."
W61L1 "Who is the light of the world except God's Son?"
W61L1 "It refers to you as you were created by God."
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."
W61L3 "True humility requires that you accept today's idea because it is God's Voice which tells you it is true."
W61L7 "God has built His plan for the salvation of His Son on you."
W62L3 "It will restore the invulnerability and power God gave His Son to your awareness."
W62L4 "It will help to make the day as happy for you as God wants you to be."
W63L2 "The Son of God looks to you for his redemption."
W63L2 "Accept no trivial purpose or meaningless desire in its place, or you will forget your function and leave the Son of God in hell."
W63L3 "I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.""
W63L4 "Remember that God's Son looks to you for his salvation."
W64L1 "It is the temptation to abandon God and His Son, taking on a physical appearance."
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 "It is only the arrogance of the ego which leads you to question this, and only the fear of the ego which induces you to regard yourself as unworthy of the task assigned to you by God Himself."
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."
W64L3 "The Son of God is you."
W64L4 "Only by fulfilling the function given you by God will you be happy."
W64L7 "Let me not try to substitute mine for God's."
W65L2 "This is the only way in which you can say and mean, "My only function is the one God gave me.""
W65L4 "The purpose of this is to arrange your day so that you have set apart the time for God, as well as for all the trivial purposes and goals you will pursue."
W65L8 "In the shorter practice periods, which should be undertaken at least once an hour, use this form in applying today's idea: "My only function is the one God gave me."
W66L4 "Our longer practice period today has as its purpose your acceptance of the fact that not only is there a very real connection between the function God gave you and your happiness, but that they are actually identical."
W66L4 "God gives you only happiness."
W66L5 "Begin the 10 to 15 minute practice period by reviewing these thoughts: "God gives me only happiness."
W66L6 "The first premise is that God gives you only happiness."
W66L6 "This could be false, of course, but in order to be false it is necessary to define God as something He is not."
W66L6 "God cannot give what He does not have, and He cannot have what He is not."
W66L6 "Unless God gives you only happiness, He must be evil."
W66L7 "The second premise is that God has given you your function."
W66L8 "Thus it must be that your function is established by God through His Voice or is made by the ego which you made to replace Him."
W66L8 "Unless God gave your function to you, it must be the gift of the ego."
W66L10 "For God Himself shares it with us."
W66L12 "In the shorter practice periods, which would be most helpful today if undertaken twice an hour, this form of the application is suggested: "My happiness and function are one, because God has given me both.""
W67L1 "This is why God appointed you as the world's savior."
W67L1 "This is why the Son of God looks to you for his salvation."
W67L2 "Any attribute which is in accord with God as He defines Himself is appropriate for use."
W67L2 "We are trying today to undo your definition of God and replace it with His Own."
W67L6 "This is the Voice for God, reminding you of your Father and of your Self."
W67L6 "This is the Voice of truth, replacing everything that the ego tells you about yourself with the simple truth about the Son of God."
W68L2 "Who can dream of hatred and not fear God?"
W68L3 "It is as sure that those who hold grievances will redefine God in their own image as it is certain that God created them like Himself and defined them as part of Him."
W69L2 "We are trying to let the veil be lifted, and see the tears of God's Son disappear in the sunlight."
W69L6 "Your little effort and small determination call on the power of the universe to help you, and God Himself will raise you from darkness into light."
W69L7 "Try to remember that you are at last joining your will to God's."
W69L7 "Try to keep the thought clearly in mind that what you undertake with God must succeed."
W69L7 "Then let the power of God work in you and through you, that His Will and yours may be done."
W70L3 "God would not have put the remedy for sickness where it cannot help."
W70L4 "Your purpose was to ensure that healing did not occur; God's purpose was to ensure that it did."
W70L4 "Today we will practice realizing that God's Will and ours are really the same in this."
W70L4 "God wants us to be healed, and we do not really want to be sick because it makes us unhappy."
W70L4 "Therefore, in accepting the idea for today, we are in agreement with God."
W71L1 "You may not realize that the ego has set up a plan for salvation in opposition to God's."
W71L1 "Since it is the opposite of God's, you also believe that to accept God's plan in place of the ego's is to be damned."
W71L5 "God's plan for salvation works simply because, by following His direction, you seek for salvation where it is."
W71L5 "But if you are to succeed, as God promises you will, you must be willing to seek there only."
W71L6 "Only God's plan for salvation will work."
W71L6 "There can be no real conflict about this, because there is no possible alternative to God's plan that will save you."
W71L6 "All things are possible to God."
W71L7 "God's plan for your salvation will work, and other plans will not."
W71L7 "They have led to depression and anger, but God's plan will succeed."
W71L8 "Remembering this, let us devote the remainder of the extended practice period to asking God to reveal His plan to us."
W71L8 "This is enough to establish your claim to God's answer."
W71L9 "In the shorter practice periods tell yourself often that God's plan for salvation, and only His, will work."
W71L9 "Be alert to all temptation to hold grievances today, and respond to them with this form of today's idea: "Holding grievances is the opposite of God's plan for salvation."
W72L1 "While we have recognized that the ego's plan for salvation is the opposite of God's, we have not yet emphasized that it is an active attack on His plan, and a deliberate attempt to destroy it."
W72L1 "In the attack, God is assigned the attributes which are actually associated with the ego, while the ego appears to take on the attributes of God."
W72L2 "The ego's fundamental wish is to replace God."
W72L3 "Although the attempt to keep the limitations which a body would impose is obvious here, it is perhaps not so apparent why holding grievances is an attack on God's plan for salvation."
W72L4 "Herein is God attacked, for if His Son is only a body, so must He be as well."
W72L5 "If God is a body, what must His plan for salvation be?"
W72L5 "The body's apparent reality makes this view of God quite convincing."
W72L5 "And it asserts that his salvation must be death, projecting this attack onto God, and holding Him responsible for it."
W72L6 "God made you a body."
W72L6 "God gave you nothing."
W72L6 "It is the death of God and your salvation."
W72L7 "But while it stands at the center of your concept of yourself, you are attacking God's plan for salvation, and holding your grievances against Him and His creations, that you may not hear the Voice of truth and welcome it as Friend."
W72L8 "The light of truth is in us, where it was placed by God."
W72L8 "To see our Self as separate from the body is to end the attack on God's plan for salvation, and to accept it instead."
W72L9 "Our goal in the longer practice periods today is to become aware that God's plan for salvation has already been accomplished in us."
W72L9 "As long as we attack it, we cannot understand what God's plan for us is."
W72L9 "Now we are going to try to lay judgment aside, and ask what God's plan for us is: "What is salvation, Father?"
W72L10 "We have attacked God's plan for salvation, without waiting to hear what it is."
W72L12 "The exercises are as follows: "Holding grievances is an attack on God's plan for salvation."
W73L1 "Today we are considering the will that you share with God."
W73L1 "The will you share with God has all the power of creation in it."
W73L3 "Can such a world have been created by the will the Son of God shares with his Father?"
W73L3 "Did God create disaster for His Son?"
W73L3 "Would God create a world that kills Himself?"
W73L4 "The light is in it because it does not oppose the Will of God."
W73L7 "You will to accept God's plan because you share in it."
W73L9 "We will begin our longer practice periods with the recognition that God's plan for salvation, and only His, is wholly in accord with your will."
W73L9 "You will succeed today, the time appointed for the release of the Son of God from hell and from all idle wishes."
W73L10 "Let me behold the light that reflects God's Will and mine.""
W73L10 "Then let your will assert itself, joined with the power of God and united with your Self."
W74L1 "God's is the only will."
W74L1 "As an expression of the Will of God, you have no goal but His."
W74L3 "Begin the longer practice periods by repeating these thoughts several times, slowly and with firm determination to understand what they mean and to hold them in mind: "There is no will but God's."
W74L3 "My will is God's.""
W74L3 ""My will and God's are one.""
W74L3 ""God wills peace for His Son.""
W74L3 "Tell yourself immediately: "There is no will but God's These conflict thoughts are meaningless.""
W74L4 "Think about it briefly but very specifically, identify the particular person or persons and the situation or situations involved, and tell yourself: "There is no will but God's."
W74L7 "In the shorter periods, which should be undertaken at regular and predetermined intervals today, say to yourself: "There is no will but God's."
W75L8 "Give thanks for mercy and the Love of God."
W75L9 "We dedicate this day to the serenity in which God would have you be."
W76L6 "There are no laws except the laws of God."
W76L7 "The laws of God can never be replaced."
W76L7 "Magic imprisons, but the laws of God set free."
W76L9 "Perhaps you even think that there are laws which set forth what is God's and what is yours."
W76L10 "There are no laws but God's."
W76L10 "You will be listening to One Who says there is no loss under the laws of God."
W76L10 "God's laws forever give and never take."
W76L12 "Let us today open God's channels to Him, and let His Will extend through us to Him."
W76L12 "We will now repeat today's idea until we have listened and understood there are no laws but God's."
W76L12 "Then we will tell ourselves, as a dedication with which the practice period concludes: "I am under no laws but God's.""
W76L13 "It is our acknowledgment that God is our Father, and that His Son is saved."
W77L1 "You will receive miracles because of what God is."
W77L1 "And you will offer miracles because you are one with God."
W77L2 "It is implicit in what God your Father is."
W77L2 "It was ensured in your creation, and guaranteed by the laws of God."
W77L3 "You have been assured that the Kingdom of God is within you, and can never be lost."
W77L4 "They merely follow from the laws of God."
W77L5 "You are but asking that the Will of God be done."
W77L7 "God has established miracles as my right.""
W78L2 "We will not wait before the shield of hate, but lay it down and gently lift our eyes in silence, to behold the Son of God."
W78L3 "For every grievance is a block to sight, and as it lifts, you see the Son of God where he has always been."
W78L3 "Today we will attempt to see God's Son."
W78L5 "He will be the one of whom we ask God's Son be shown to us."
W78L5 "Such is his role in God your Father's plan."
W78L7 "Then let us ask of Him who knows this Son of God in his reality and truth, that we may look on him a different way, and see our Savior shining in the light of true forgiveness, given unto us."
W78L7 "We ask Him in the Holy Name of God and of His Son, as holy as Himself: "Let me behold my Savior in this one You have appointed as the One for me To ask to lead me to the holy light In which he stands, that I may join with him.""
W78L8 "The Holy Spirit leans from him to you, seeing no separation in God's Son."
W78L8 "You have allowed the Holy Spirit to express through him the role God gave Him, that you might be saved."
W78L9 "God thanks you for these quiet times today, in which you laid your images aside, and looked upon the miracle of love the Holy Spirit showed you in their place."
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."
W78L10 "We will remember this throughout the day, and take the role assigned to us as part of God's salvation plan, and not our own."
W80L1 "Accept that fact, and you are ready to take your rightful place in God's plan for salvation."
W80L2 "You have recognized your only problem, opening the way for the Holy Spirit to give you God's answer."
W80L4 "The problem must be gone because God's answer cannot fail."
W82L5 "And unless I fulfill my function, I will not experience the joy that God intends for me."
W83L1 "65) "My only function is the one God gave me.""
W83L2 "I have no function but the one God gave me."
W83L2 "All doubt must disappear and I acknowledge that my only function is the one God gave me."
W83L3 ""This does not give me a function other than the one God gave me.""
W83L3 ""Let me not use this to justify a function God did not give to me.""
W83L5 "All things that come from God are one."
W86L1 "71) "Only God's plan for salvation will work.""
W86L2 "Only God's plan for salvation will work."
W86L3 "These are some suggested forms for applying this idea specifically: "God's plan for salvation will save me from my perception of this.""
W86L3 ""This is no exception in God's plan for my salvation.""
W86L3 ""Let me perceive this only in the light of God's plan for salvation.""
W86L4 "72) "Holding grievances is an attack on God's plan for salvation.""
W86L5 "Holding grievances is an attempt to prove that God's plan for salvation will not work."
W86L5 "I would accept God's plan for salvation and be happy."
W87L4 "74) "There is no will but God's.""
W87L5 "I am safe today because there is no will but God's."
W87L5 "I am safe because there is no will but God's."
W87L6 "These are some useful forms of this idea for specific applications: "Let me perceive this in accordance with the Will of God.""
W87L6 ""It is God's Will you are His Son (name), and mine as well.""
W87L6 ""This is part of God's Will for me, however I may see it.""
W88L4 "76) "I am under no laws but God's.""
W88L5 "I am under no laws but God's."
W88L5 "I am perfectly free of the effects of all laws save God's."
W88L6 ""I see only the laws of God at work in this.""
W88L6 ""Let me allow God's laws to work in this, and not my own.""
W89L2 "I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God's."
W89L2 "Now I would accept only what the laws of God entitle me to have, that I may use it on behalf of the function He has given me."
W89L5 "By this idea do I express my willingness to have all my illusions be replaced with truth, according to God's plan for my salvation."
W89L5 "I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have."
W90L5 "That is because I do not yet realize that God has placed the answer together with the problem, so that they cannot be separated by time."
W91L10 "Relax for the rest of the practice period, confident that your efforts, however meager, are fully supported by the strength of God and all His Thoughts."
W92L3 "It is God's strength in you that is the light in which you see, as it is His Mind with which you think."
W92L4 "Strength is the truth about you; weakness is an idol falsely worshipped, and adored that strength may be dispelled, and darkness rule where God appointed that there should be light."
W92L8 "Such is the meeting place we try today to find and rest in, for the peace of God is where your Self, His Son, is waiting now to meet Itself again, and be as One."
W93L3 "These thoughts are not according to God's Will."
W93L4 "Your image of yourself cannot withstand the Will of God."
W93L5 "The self you made is not the Son of God."
W93L5 "It does not battle with the Son of God."
W93L5 "What power can this self you made possess, when it would contradict the Will of God?"
W93L6 "Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God."
W93L6 "Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God."
W93L6 "Nothing can touch it, nor can change what God created as eternal."
W93L6 "Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God, and light and joy and peace abide in you."
W93L7 "Salvation requires the acceptance of but one thought; you are as God created you, not what you made of yourself."
W93L7 "Whatever evil you may think you did, you are as God created you."
W93L7 "Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God."
W93L7 "Light and joy and peace abide in you because God put them there."
W93L8 "My sinlessness is guaranteed by God.""
W93L8 "Then put away your foolish self-images, and spend the rest of the practice period in trying to experience what God has given you, in place of what you have decreed for yourself."
W93L9 "You are what God created, or what you made."
W93L9 "Try not to interfere with the Self Which God created as you by hiding Its majesty behind the tiny idols of evil and sinfulness you have made to replace It."
W93L10 "My sinlessness is guaranteed by God.""
W93L11 "Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God.""
W93L12 "You can do much today to bring you closer to the part in salvation which God has assigned to you."
W94L1 "You are as God created you."
W94L2 "If you remain as God created you, you must be strong, and light must be in you."
W94L2 "You are as God created you."
W94L2 "Darkness cannot obscure the glory of the Son of God."
W94L3 "Begin these times of searching with these words: "I am as God created me."
W94L3 "Now try to reach the Son of God in you."
W94L3 "This is the Self Which never left Its home in God, to walk the world uncertainly."
W94L4 "God has Himself promised that it will be revealed to all who ask for it."
W94L5 "If you do not meet the requirement of practicing for the first five minutes of every hour, at least remind yourself hourly: "I am as God created me."
W94L5 "Tell yourself frequently today that you are as God created you."
W94L5 "And be sure to respond to anyone who seems to irritate you with these words: "You are as God created You."
W95L1 "Today's idea accurately describes you as God created you."
W95L2 "You see yourself as a ridiculous parody on God's creation, weak, vicious, ugly and sinful, miserable and beset with pain."
W95L2 "Such is your version of your self; a self divided into many warring parts, separated from God, and tenuously held together by its erratic and capricious maker, to which you pray."
W95L2 "It does not understand you are the Son of God, for it is senseless and understands nothing."
W95L12 "You are God's Son, One Self with One Creator and one goal; to bring awareness of this Oneness to all minds, that true creation may extend the Allness and the Unity of God."
W95L13 "You are One Self, the holy Son of God, united with your brothers in this Self; united with your Father in His Will."
W95L14 "This is your Self, the Son of God Himself, sinless as Its Creator, with His strength within you, and His Love forever yours."
W96L7 "Yet would you have God's plan for the release of His dear Son bring pain to him, and fail to set him free?"
W96L7 "Your Self retains Its Thoughts, and They remain within your mind and in the Mind of God."
W96L8 "Salvation is a Thought you share with God, because His Voice accepted it for you, and answered in your name that it was done."
W97L2 "We state again the truth about your Self, the holy Son of God Who rests in you; Whose mind has been restored to sanity."
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.""
W97L9 "And He will speak to you, reminding you that you are Spirit, one with Him and God, your brothers and your Self."
W98L1 "We dedicate ourselves to truth today, and to salvation as God planned it be."
W98L1 "In gladness we accept it as it is, and take the part assigned to us by God."
W98L5 "Is it not worth five minutes of your time each hour to be able to accept the happiness which God has given you?"
W98L8 "Today you practice with Him, as you say: "I will accept my part in God's plan for salvation.""
W99L1 "They both imply that something has gone wrong; something you need be saved from or forgiven for; something amiss that needs corrective change, something apart or different from the Will of God."
W99L3 "And yet they are not real because the mind that thinks these thoughts is separate from God."
W99L4 "What but a Thought of God could be this plan by which the never done is overlooked, and sins forgotten which were never real?"
W99L5 "The Holy Spirit holds this plan of God exactly as it was received of Him within the Mind of God, and in your own."
W99L5 "Yet does He know one thing must still be true; God still is Love, and this is not His Will."
W99L7 "God still is Love, and this is not His Will.""
W99L8 "This part belongs to God, as does the rest."
W99L10 "It is God's will your mind be One with His."
W99L10 "It is God's Will that He has but one Son."
W99L10 "It is God's Will that His one Son is you."
W99L11 "You have no function that is not of God."
W99L12 "God still is Love, and this is not His Will.""
W99L13 "Remind yourself of this between the times you give five minutes to be shared with Him Who shares God's plan with you."
W99L13 "Thus do you lay forgiveness on your mind, and let all fear be gently laid aside that Love may find Its rightful place in you, and show you that you are the Son of God."
W100L1 "Just as God's Son completes his Father, so your part in it completes your Father's plan."
W100L2 "God's Will for you is perfect happiness."
W100L2 "They will see their function in your shining face, and hear God calling to them in your happy laugh."
W100L3 "You are indeed essential to God's plan."
W100L3 "While you are sad the light which God Himself appointed as the means to save the world is dim and lusterless."
W100L3 "You are indeed essential to God's plan."
W100L3 "Just as your light increases every light that shines in Heaven, so your joy on earth calls to all minds to let their sorrows go, and take their place beside you in God's plan."
W100L4 "God's messengers are joyous, and their joy heals sorrow and despair."
W100L4 "They are the proof that God wills perfect happiness for all who will accept their Father's gifts as theirs."
W100L4 "For if we do, we fail to take the part that is essential to God's plan, as well as to our vision."
W100L4 "Sadness is the sign that you would play another part, instead of what has been assigned to you by God."
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."
W100L5 "You are God's messenger today."
W100L6 "Only this is asked of you or anyone who wants to take his place among God's messengers."
W100L7 "You but receive according to God's plan, and never lose or sacrifice or die."
W100L7 "Now let us try to find that joy which proves to us and all the world God's Will for us."
W100L8 "What foolish goal can keep you from success when He Who calls to you is God Himself?"
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."
W101L1 "Yet you must think it so while you believe that sin is real, and that God's Son can sin."
W101L2 "The sinful warrant only death and pain, and it is this they ask for, for they know it waits for them and it will seek them out and find them somewhere, sometime, in some form which evens the account they owe to God."
W101L4 "If sin is real salvation has become your bitter enemy, the curse of God upon you who have crucified His Son."
W101L5 "Accept atonement with an open mind which cherishes no lingering belief that you have made a devil of God's Son."
W101L6 "God's Will for you is perfect happiness because there is no sin, and suffering is causeless."
W101L7 "Fear not the Will of God."
W101L7 "Say: "God's Will for me is perfect happiness."
W101L8 "Remember this today, and tell yourself as often as you can: "God's Will for me is perfect happiness."
W102L2 "Be you free today to join the happy Will of God."
W102L3 "For several days we will continue to devote our longer practice periods to exercises planned to help you reach the happiness God's Will has placed in you."
W102L4 "Begin the longer practice periods today with this acceptance of God's Will for you: "I share God's Will for happiness for me, And I accept it as my function now.""
W102L4 "You cannot fail to find it when you learn it is your choice, and that you share God's Will."
W102L5 "You have no need to be less loving to God's Son than He Whose Love created him as loving as Himself."
W102L5 "And be sure that you are joining with God's Will in doing this."
W103L2 "These images, with no reality in truth, bear witness to the fear of God, forgetting being Love."
W103L2 "This basic error we will try again to bring to truth today, and teach ourselves: "God, being Love, is also happiness."
W103L2 "Begin your longer exercises for today with this association, which corrects the false belief that God is fear."
W103L3 "God being Love, it will be given you."
W103L3 "Bolster this expectation frequently throughout the day, and quiet all your fears with this assurance, kind and wholly true: "God, being Love, is also happiness."
W104L1 "They come to you from God, Who cannot fail to give you what He wills."
W104L2 "Today we would remove all meaningless and self-made gifts which we have placed upon the holy altar where God's gifts belong."
W104L2 "Therefore we will to have them now, and know in choosing them in place of what we made, we but unite our will with what God wills, and recognize the same as being One."
W104L4 "All this we lay aside, and seek instead that which is truly ours, as we ask to recognize what God has given us."
W104L5 "God's gifts of joy and peace are all I want.""
W105L1 "God's peace and joy are yours."
W105L3 "Accept God's peace and joy, and you will learn a different way of looking at a gift."
W105L3 "God's gifts will never lessen when they are given away."
W105L3 "As Heaven's peace and joy intensify when you accept them as God's gift to you, so does the joy of your Creator grow when you accept His joy and peace as yours."
W105L5 "Today accept God's peace and joy as yours."
W105L6 "Begin today by thinking of those brothers who have been denied by you the peace and joy which are their right under the equal laws of God."
W105L6 "Think of your "enemies" a little while, and tell each one as he occurs to you: "My brother, peace and joy I offer you, That I may have God's peace and joy as mine.""
W105L7 "Thus you prepare yourself to recognize God's gifts to you, and let your mind be free of all that would prevent success today."
W105L7 "Now are you ready to accept the gift of peace and joy which God has given you."
W105L7 "Now you can say "God's peace and joy are mine," for you have given what you would receive."
W105L8 "So tell yourself "God's peace and joy are mine," and close your eyes a while, and let His Voice assure you that the words you speak are true."
W105L9 "And if a brother seems to tempt you to deny God's gift to him, see it as but another chance to let yourself receive the gifts of God as yours."
W105L9 "Then bless your brother thankfully, and say: "My brother, peace and joy I offer you, That I may have God's peace and joy as mine.""
W106L4 "Today the promise of God's Word is kept."
W106L4 "They end the dream instead, and last forever for they come from God, to His dear Son, whose other name is you."
W106L5 "God calls to them through you."
W106L5 "He needs your voice to speak to them, for who could reach God's Son except his Father calling through your Self?"
W106L10 "Today the holy Word of God is kept through your receiving it to give away, so you can teach the world what giving means by listening and learning it of Him."
W106L10 "I am the messenger of God today, My voice is His, to give what I receive.""
W109L2 ""I rest in God.""
W109L2 ""I rest in God.""
W109L2 "Here is the thought in which the Son of God is born again, to recognize Himself."
W109L3 ""I rest in God.""
W109L3 "Completely undismayed this thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God."
W109L3 "And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God."
W109L4 "You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate, your rest remains completely undisturbed."
W109L4 "You call to all to join you in your rest, and they will hear and come to you because you rest in God."
W109L4 "They will not hear another voice but yours, because you gave your voice to God and now you rest in Him, and let Him speak through you."
W109L5 "No more fearful dreams will come now that you rest in God."
W109L6 "The world is born again each time you rest, and hourly remember that you came to bring the peace of God into the world, that it might take its rest along with you."
W109L8 "You rest within the peace of God today, and call upon your brothers from your rest, to draw them to their rest along with you."
W109L9 "You rest within the peace of God today, quiet and unafraid."
W109L9 "We give to those unborn and those passed by, to every Thought of God, and to the Mind in Which these Thoughts were born, and where they rest."

W110L1 "Its truth would mean that you have made no changes in yourself which have reality, nor changed the universe so that what God created was replaced by fear and evil, misery and death."
W110L1 "If you remain as God created you, fear has no meaning, evil is not real, and misery and death do not exist."
W110L3 "If you remain as God created you appearances cannot replace the truth, health cannot turn to sickness, nor can death be substitute for life, or fear for love."
W110L3 "All this has not occurred, if you remain as God created you."
W110L4 "If you are as God created you, then there has been no separation of your mind from His, no split between your mind and other minds, and only unity within your own."
W110L5 "This is the truth that God has promised you."
W110L6 "For your five minute practice periods, begin with this quotation from the text: "I am as God created me."
W110L6 "Then, with this statement firmly in your mind, try to discover in your mind this Self Who is the holy Son of God Himself."

W120L3 "On the hour: "I rest in God.""
W120L4 "On the half hour: "I am as God created me.""
W121L14 "I will awaken from the dream that I Am mortal, fallible, and full of sin, And know I am the perfect Son of God.""
W122L3 "It lets you recognize the Son of God, and clears your memory of all dead thoughts so that remembrance of your Father can arise across the threshold of your mind."
W122L5 "God's plan for your salvation cannot change, nor can it fail."
W122L6 "There is no plan but this for the salvation of the Son of God."
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 "God wills salvation be received today, and that the intricacies of your dreams no longer hide their nothingness from you."
W122L14 "Today I have received the gifts of God.""
W123L3 "Be thankful that your value far transcends your meager gifts and petty judgments of the one whom God established as His Son."
W123L4 "We sing the song of thankfulness today in honor of the Self Which God has willed to be our true identity in Him."
W123L5 "And we give thanks that in our solitude a Friend has come to speak the saving Word of God to us."
W123L6 "Receive the thanks of God today, as you give thanks to Him."
W124L1 "Today we will again give thanks for our identity in God."
W124L1 "At one with God and with the universe, we go our way rejoicing, with the thought that God Himself goes everywhere with us."
W124L2 "And everything we see reflects the holiness within the mind at one with God and with itself."
W124L2 "Our shining footprints point the way to truth, for God is our Companion as we walk the world a little while."
W124L3 "And God, Who loves us with the equal love in which we were created, smiles on us and offers us the happiness we gave."
W124L6 "No miracle can ever be denied to those who know that they are one with God."
W124L7 "We join in this awareness as we say that we are one with God."
W124L8 "Sometime today, whenever it seems best, devote a half an hour to the thought that you are one with God."
W124L8 "We will trust God's Voice to speak as He sees fit today, certain He will not fail."
W124L11 "Count this half hour as your gift to God, in certainty that His return will be a sense of love you cannot understand, a joy too deep for you to comprehend, a sight too holy for the body's eyes to see, and yet you can be sure some day, perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, you will understand and comprehend and see."
W124L11 "Add further jewels to the golden frame that holds the mirror offered you today by hourly repeating to yourself: "Let me remember I am one with God, At one with all my brothers and my Self, In everlasting holiness and peace.""
W125L2 "No other means can save it, for God's plan is simply this: The Son of God is free to save himself, given the Word of God to be his Guide, forever in his mind and at his side to lead him surely to his Father's house by his own will, forever free as God's."
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."
W125L4 "Hear, holy Son of God, your Father speak."
W125L4 "We gather at the throne of God today, the quiet place within your mind where He abides forever in the holiness which He created and will never leave."
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."
W125L8 "In quiet listen to your Self today, and let Him tell you God has never left His Son, and you have never left your Self."
W125L9 "You will hear the Word in which the Will of God the Son joins in His Father's Will, at one with It, with no illusions interposed between the wholly indivisible and true."
W125L9 "As every hour passes by today be still a moment, and remind yourself you have a special purpose for this day; - in quiet to receive the Word of God."
W126L6 "It is not what God intended it to be for you."
W127L1 "It is the heart of God and also of His Son."
W127L2 "If it could make such distinctions it would have to judge between the righteous and the sinner, and perceive the Son of God in separate parts."
W127L3 "There is no love but God's, and all of love is His."
W127L4 "Love's meaning is your own, and shared by God Himself."
W127L7 "Let us together, then, be glad to give some time to God today, and understand there is no better use for time than this."
W127L7 "Withdraw all value you have placed upon its meagre offerings and senseless gifts, and let the Gift of God replace them all."
W127L10 "Now are they all our brothers in God's Love."
W127L11 "And as he comes to mind, give him this message from your Self: "I bless you, brother, with the Love of God Which I would share with you."
W127L11 "For I would learn The joyous lesson that there is no love But God's and yours and mine and everyone's.""
W129L4 "And God Himself speaks to His Son as His Son speaks to Him."
W130L8 "You wait for God to help you, as you say: "It is impossible to see two worlds."
W130L8 "Let me accept the strength God offers me And see no value in this world, that I May find my freedom and deliverance.""
W130L9 "God will be there."
W130L9 "And you will know God's strength upheld as you made this choice."
W131L4 "God's Son cannot seek vainly, though he try to force delay, deceive himself, and think that it is hell he seeks."
W131L5 "You will reach the goal you really want as certainly as God created you in sinlessness."
W131L6 "Yet this cannot be if it is where God wills His Son to be."
W131L6 "How could the Will of God be in the past or yet to happen?"
W131L7 "God made no contradictions."
W131L8 "God does not suffer conflict."
W131L8 "How could it be His Son could be in hell when God Himself established him in Heaven?"
W131L9 "How could the Son of God make time to take away the Will of God?"
W131L14 "Today God keeps His ancient promise to His holy Son, as does His Son remember his to Him."
W132L9 "You are as God created you."
W132L9 "How can a world of time and place exist if you remain as God created you?"
W132L11 "Yet if you are as God created you, you cannot think apart from Him, nor make what does not share His timelessness and love."
W132L11 "If you are real the world you see is false, for God's creation is unlike the world in every way."
W132L11 "And as it was His Thought by which you were created, so it is your thoughts which made it and must set it free, that you may know the Thoughts you share with God."
W132L12 "Your real creations wait for this release to give you fatherhood, not of illusions, but as God in truth."
W132L12 "God shares His Fatherhood with you who are His Son, for He makes no distinctions in what is Himself and what is still Himself."
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."
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."
W134L2 "Truth is God's creation, and to pardon this is meaningless."
W134L10 "Thus will you see alternatives for choice in terms which render choosing meaningful, and keep your mind as free of guilt and pain as God Himself intended it to be, and as it is in truth."
W135L5 "What but the body falters and must fail to serve the Son of God as worthy host?"
W135L26 "Now is the light of hope reborn in you, for now you come without defense to learn the part for you within the plan of God."
W135L26 "What little plans or magical beliefs can still have value, when you have received your function from the Voice of God Himself?"
W135L27 "I will not defend myself, Because the Son of God needs no defense Against the truth of his Reality.""
W136L9 "And so the body is more powerful than Everlasting Life, Heaven more frail than hell, and God's design for the salvation of His Son opposed by a decision stronger than His Will."
W136L10 "And you believe that Heaven quails before such mad attacks as these, with God made blind by your illusions, truth turned into lies, and all the universe made slaves to laws which your defenses would impose on it."
W136L11 "God knows not of your plans to change His Will."
W136L12 "Perhaps it sighs a little when you throw away its gifts, and yet it knows with perfect certainty that what God wills for you must be received."
W136L13 "For it lets you think what God has given you is not the truth right now, as it must be."
W136L13 "The Thoughts of God are quite apart from time."
W136L13 "Yet what God wills is here, and you remain as He created you."
W137L3 "But healing is accomplished as he sees the body has no power to attack the universal Oneness of God's Son."
W137L11 "What is opposed to God does not exist, and who accepts it not within his mind becomes a haven where the weary can remain to rest."
W137L12 "Would you not offer shelter to God's will?"
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.""
W137L15 "And as you rest in quiet be prepared to give as you receive, to hold but what you give, and to receive the Word of God to take the place of all the foolish thoughts that ever were imagined."
W138L2 "Yet what is true in God's creation cannot enter here, until it is reflected in some form the world can understand."
W139L1 "For here we come to a decision to accept ourselves as God created us."
W139L7 "It is set forever in the holy Mind of God and in your own."
W139L9 "This does Atonement teach, and demonstrates the oneness of God's Son is unassailed by his belief he knows not what he is."
W139L10 "Today accept Atonement, not to change reality, but merely to accept the truth about yourself, and go your way rejoicing in the endless Love of God."
W139L10 "We start with this review of what our mission is: "I will accept Atonement for myself, For I remain as God created me.""
W139L11 "We have not lost the knowledge that God gave to us when He created us like Him."
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.""
W140L5 "Peace be to you who have been cured in God, and not in idle dreams."
W140L5 "God abides in holy temples."
W140L10 "We will be still and listen for the Voice of healing which will cure all ills as one, restoring saneness to the Son of God."
W140L10 "Today we hear a single Voice Which speaks to us of truth where all illusions end, and peace returns to the eternal quiet home of God."
W140R42 "There is a central theme that unifies each step in the review we undertake, which can be simply stated in these words: "My mind holds only what I think with God.""
W140R44 "And yet your mind holds only what you think with God."
W140R45 "Open your mind and clear it of all thoughts that would deceive, and let this Thought alone engage it fully and remove the rest: "My mind holds only what I think with God.""
W140R45 "Five minutes with this Thought will be enough to set the day along the lines which God appointed, and to place His Mind in charge of all the thoughts you will receive that day."
W140R46 "Let each word shine with the meaning God has given it as it was given to you through His Voice."
W140R49 "God offers thanks to you who practice thus the keeping of His Word."
W142L2 " 124) "Let me remember I am one with God.""
W143L1 " 125) "In quiet I receive God's Word today.""
W144L1 " 127) "There is no love but God's.""
W151L3 "This is awareness which you understand, and think more real than what is witnessed to by the eternal Voice of God Himself."
W151L7 "Yet you must learn to doubt their evidence will clear the way to recognize yourself, and let the Voice for God alone be Judge of what is worthy of your own belief."
W151L7 "He passes by such idle witnesses, which merely bear false witness to God's Son."
W151L8 "He recognizes only what God loves, and in the holy light of what He sees do all the ego's dreams of what you are vanish before the splendor He beholds."
W151L8 "The Voice of God can only honor Him, rejoicing in His perfect, everlasting sinlessness."
W151L11 "You will no longer doubt that only good can come to you who are beloved of God, for He will judge all happenings and teach the single lesson which they all contain."
W151L13 "So will you see the holy Face of Christ in everything, and hear in everything no sound except the echo of God's Voice."
W151L14 "We practice wordlessly today, except at the beginning of the time you spend with God."
W151L14 "Let Him evaluate each thought that comes to mind, remove the elements of dreams, and give them back to you as clean ideas which do not contradict the Will of God."
W151L15 "Give Him your thoughts, and He will give them back as miracles which joyously proclaim the wholeness and the happiness God wills His Son as proof of His eternal Love."
W151L16 "So are you taught to teach the Son of God the holy lesson of his sanctity."
W151L16 "No one can fail to listen when you hear the Voice of God give honor to God's Son."
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."
W152L5 "As God created you, you must remain unchangeable with transitory states by definition false."
W152L6 "God made it not."
W152L7 "To think that God made chaos, contradicts His Will, invented opposites to truth, and suffers death to triumph over life, all this is arrogance."
W152L7 "And can you see what God created not?"
W152L7 "To think you can is merely to believe you can perceive what God willed not to be."
W152L9 "But truth is humble in acknowledging its mightiness, its changelessness and its eternal wholeness, all-encompassing, God's perfect gift to His beloved Son."
W152L10 "And we accept of Him that which we are, and humbly recognize the Son of God."
W152L10 "To recognize God's Son implies as well that all self-concepts have been laid aside and recognized as false."
W152L10 "And in humility the radiance of God's Son, his gentleness, his perfect sinlessness, his Father's love, his right to Heaven and release from hell, are joyously accepted as our own."
W152L11 "And He Who never left will come again to our awareness, grateful to restore His home to God as it was meant to be."
W152L12 "God's Voice will answer, for He speaks for you and for your Father."
W152L12 "He will substitute the peace of God for all your frantic thoughts, the truth of God for self-deceptions, and God's Son for your illusions of yourself."
W153L5 "You do not realize what you have done to sabotage the holy peace of God by your defensiveness."
W153L5 "For you behold the Son of God as but a victim to attack by fantasies, by dreams, and by illusions he has made; yet helpless in their presence, needful only of defense by still more fantasies and dreams, by which illusions of his safety comfort him."
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?"
W153L10 "God's ministers have chosen that the truth be with them."
W153L10 "What defense could possibly be needed by the ones who are among the chosen ones of God by His election and their own as well?"
W153L11 "It is the function of God's ministers to help their brothers choose as they have done."
W153L11 "God has elected all, but few have come to realize His Will is but their own."
W153L13 "Now a quiet time has come in which we put away the toys of guilt, and lock our quaint and childish thoughts of sin forever from the pure and holy minds of Heaven's children and the Son of God."
W153L14 "God's ministers have come to waken him from the dark dreams this story has evoked in his confused, bewildered memory of this distorted tale."
W153L14 "God's Son can smile at last, on learning that it is not true."
W153L15 "And as distraction ceases to arise to turn us from our purpose, we will find that half an hour is too short a time to spend with God."
W153L16 "Each hour adds to our increasing peace, as we remember to be faithful to the Will we share with God."
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."
W153L17 "Yet when we can, we will observe our trust as ministers of God in hourly remembrance of our mission and His Love."
W153L20 "The ministers of God can never fail, because the love and strength and peace that shine from them to all their brothers come from Him."
W154L2 "Whatever your appointed role may be it was selected by the Voice for God, Whose function is to speak for you as well."
W154L3 "God has joined His Son in this, and thus His Son becomes His messenger of unity with Him."
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."
W154L4 "So is its Self the one Reality in Which its will and That of God are joined."
W154L7 "The messengers of God perform their part by their acceptance of His messages as for themselves, and show they understand the messages by giving them away."
W154L8 "Would you receive the messages of God?"
W154L9 "You who are now the messengers of God receive His messages, for that is part of your appointed role."
W154L9 "He Who has received for you the messages of God would have them be received by you as well."
W154L10 "He alone can speak to us and for us, joining in One Voice the getting and the giving of God's Word; the giving and receiving of His Will."
W154L12 "But this is sure; until belief is given it, you will receive a thousand miracles and then receive a thousand more, but will not know that God Himself has left no gift beyond what you already have; nor has denied the tiniest of blessings to His Son."
W154L13 "Our lesson for today is stated thus: "I am among the ministers of God, And I am grateful that I have the means By which to recognize that I am free.""
W155L5 "Thus can you serve them while you serve yourself, and set their footsteps on the way which God has opened up to you, and them through you."
W155L8 "Illusion can but seem to hold in chains the holy Son of God."
W155L10 "And all illusions walking in the way you travelled will be gone from you as well, with nothing left to keep the truth apart from God's completion, holy as Himself."
W155L11 "When dreams are over, time has closed the door on all the things that pass and miracles are purposeless, the holy Son of God will make no journeys."
W155L12 "We walk to God."
W155L12 "What way could give you more than everything, or offer less and still content the holy Son of God?"
W155L12 "We walk to God."
W155L13 "Your feet are safely set upon the road which leads the world to God."
W155L13 "Dreams are not a worthy guide for you who are God's Son."
W156L1 "If this be true, how can you be apart from God?"
W156L2 "You cannot walk the world apart from God because you could not be without Him."
W156L5 "The Light you carry is their own, and thus they see in you their holiness, saluting you as Savior and as God."
W156L6 "It is a foolish thought, a silly dream, not frightening, ridiculous perhaps, but who would waste an instant in approach to God Himself for such a senseless whim?"
W156L7 "The approach to God is near."
W156L8 "God speaks for you in answering your question with these words: "I walk with God in perfect holiness."
W156L8 "I light the world, I light my mind and all The minds which God created one with me.""
W157L5 "For your experience today will so transform your mind that it becomes the touchstone for the holy Thoughts of God."
W158L7 "It does not look upon a body and mistake it for the Son whom God created."
W158L8 "Greet him as the Son of God he is, acknowledging that he is one with you in holiness."
W158L10 "Each brother whom you meet today provides another chance to let Christ's vision shine on you, and offer you the peace of God."
W159L3 "Christ's vision pictures Heaven, for it sees a world so like to Heaven that what God created perfect can be mirrored there."
W159L10 "Are you not worth the gift, when God appointed it be given you?"
W159L10 "Judge not God's Son, but follow in the way He has established."
W159L10 "His vision gives the means for a return to our unlost and everlasting sanctity in God."
W160L4 "Is it fear or you that is unsuited to the home which God provided for His Son?"
W160L7 "Yet is your Self as certain of Its Own as God is of His Son."
W160L8 "Whom God has joined remains forever one, at home in Him, no stranger to Himself."
W161L1 "Here is the Answer of the Voice of God."
W161L7 "When hatred rests upon a thing, it calls for death as surely as God's Voice proclaims there is no death."
W161L9 "This do the body's eyes behold in one whom Heaven cherishes, the angels love, and God created perfect."
W161L11 "Ask this of him that he may set you free: "Give me your blessing, holy Son of God, I would behold you with the eyes of Christ, And see my perfect sinlessness in you.""
W161L12 "And He will answer Whom you called upon, for He will hear the Voice of God in you, and answer in your own."
W162L1 "These words are sacred, for they are the words God gave in answer to the world you made."
W162L1 "For they come from God."
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."
W162L4 "And thus you learn to think with God."
W162L6 "You are as God created you."
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."
W163L2 "Embodiment of fear, the host of sin, god of the guilty and the lord of all illusions and deceptions, does the thought of death seem mighty."
W163L4 "Here is the strength and might of God Himself perceived within an idol made of dust."
W163L4 "Here is the opposite of God proclaimed as lord of all creation, stronger than God's Will for life, the endlessness of love and Heaven's perfect, changeless constancy."
W163L4 "Here is the Will of Father and of Son defeated finally, and laid to rest beneath the headstone death has placed upon the body of the holy Son of God."
W163L5 "It says but this: "Here lies a witness God is dead.""
W163L7 "The idea of the death of God is so preposterous that even the insane have difficulty in believing it."
W163L7 "For it implies that God was once alive and somehow perished, killed, apparently, by those who did not want him to survive."
W163L8 "God made not death."
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."
W164L9 "Would God deceive you?"
W165L2 "The Thought of God created you."
W165L2 "The Thought of God protects you, cares for you, makes soft your resting place and smooth your way, lighting your mind with happiness and love."
W165L2 "Eternity and Everlasting Life shine in your mind because the Thought of God has left you not, and still abides with you."
W165L4 "Yet God is fair."
W165L5 "For this sight proves that you have exchanged your blindness for the seeing eyes of Christ; your mind has come to lay aside denial and accept the Thought of God as its inheritance."
W165L6 "Would God consent to let His Son remain forever starved by his denial of the nourishment he needs to live?"
W165L6 "Abundance dwells in him, and deprivation cannot cut him off from God's sustaining Love and from his home."
W165L7 "Your doubts are meaningless, for God is certain."
W166L1 "God's trust in you is limitless."
W166L2 "This world is not the Will of God, and so it is not real."
W166L2 "But never in One God."
W166L3 "The gifts of God are not acceptable to anyone who holds such strange beliefs."
W166L3 "He must believe that to accept God's gifts, however evident they may become, however urgently he may be called to claim them as his own, is being pressed to treachery against himself."
W166L5 "Yet in his lonely, senseless wanderings God's gifts go with him, all unknown to him."
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."
W166L8 "And what becomes of all the tragedy you sought to make for him whom God intended only joy?"
W166L9 "Perhaps God's Word is truer than your own."
W166L10 "God's Will does not oppose."
W166L10 "It is not God you have imprisoned in your plan to lose your Self."
W166L12 "This is the lesson that His giving holds, for He has saved you from the solitude you sought to make, in which to hide from God."
W166L12 "He has reminded you of all the gifts that God has given you."
W166L13 "Teach them by showing them the happiness that comes to those who feel the touch of Christ and recognize God's gifts."
W166L14 "Your hand becomes the giver of Christ's touch; your change of mind becomes the proof that who accepts God's gifts can never suffer anything."
W166L15 "God has entrusted all His gifts to you."
W166L15 "For God entrusts the giving of His gifts to all who have received them."
W167L1 "It is the one condition in which all that God created share."
W167L1 "There is no death because what God created shares His Life."
W167L1 "There is no death because an opposite to God does not exist."
W167L3 "Its truth established you as one with God."
W167L8 "God creates only mind awake."
W167L8 "Forever unopposed by opposites of any kind, the Thoughts of God remain forever changeless, with the power to extend forever changelessly but yet within Themselves, for They are everywhere."
W167L10 "Nor will we let imagined opposites to life abide even an instant where the Thought of Life Eternal has been set by God Himself."
W168L1 "God speaks to us."
W168L3 "Today we ask of God the gift He has most carefully preserved within our hearts, waiting to be acknowledged."
W168L3 "This the gift by which God leans to us and lifts us up, taking salvation's final step Himself."
W168L4 "God loves His Son."
W169L1 "Grace is an aspect of the Love of God which is most like the state prevailing in the Unity of truth."
W169L2 "Grace is acceptance of the Love of God within a world of seeming hate and fear."
W169L3 "It is not shut tight against God's Voice."
W169L4 "And yet we urge you to bear witness to the Word of God to hasten the experience of truth, and speed its advent into every mind which recognizes its effects on you."
W169L5 "Oneness is simply the idea God is."
W169L5 "We say "God is," and then we cease to speak, for in that knowledge words are meaningless."
W169L6 "It comes to every mind when total recognition that its will is God's has been completely given and received completely."
W169L6 "The Son of God has merely disappeared into His Father, as His Father has in Him."
W169L11 "As you take the role assigned to you, salvation comes a little nearer each uncertain heart that does not beat as yet in tune with God."
W170L6 "With love as enemy must cruelty become a god, and gods demand that those who worship them obey their dictates, and refuse to question them."
W170L7 "Today we look upon this cruel god dispassionately."
W170L8 "For the god of cruelty takes many forms."
W170L9 "The final one, the hardest to believe is nothing, and a seeming obstacle with the appearance of a solid block, impenetrable, fearful and beyond surmounting, is the fear of God Himself."
W170L9 "Here is the basic premise which enthrones the thought of fear as god."
W170L10 "And He is terrible above all else, cruel beyond conception, striking down all who acknowledge Him to be their God."
W170L11 "For you look for the last time upon this bit of carven stone you made, and call it god no longer."
W170L11 "You have reached this place before, but you have chosen that this cruel god remain with you in still another form, and so the fear of God returned with you."
W170L12 "Now your voice belongs to God, and echoes His."
W170L12 "The Call of God is heard and answered."
W170L12 "Now has fear made way for love, as God Himself replaces cruelty."
W170R54 "Each one but clarifies some aspect of this thought, or helps it be more meaningful, more personal and true, and more descriptive of the holy Self we share and now prepare to know again: "God is but Love, and therefore so am I.""
W170R56 "God's Son is crucified until you walk along the road with me."
W170R58 "Release me as you practice once again the thoughts I brought to you from Him Who sees your bitter need, and knows the answer God has given Him."
W170R58 "God would not have Heaven incomplete."
W170R510 "And your wholeness now complete, as God established it."

W181L10 "Our sinlessness is but the Will of God."
W182L1 "God's Name is holy, but no holier than yours."
W182L2 "God's Name can not be heard without response, nor said without an echo in the mind which calls you to remember."
W182L3 "Repeat God's Name and all the world responds by laying down illusions."
W182L4 "Repeat the Name of God and little names have lost their meaning."
W182L4 "No temptation but becomes a nameless and unwanted thing before God's Name."
W182L4 "They have lost the name of god you gave them."
W182L4 "They become anonymous and valueless to you, although before you let the Name of God replace their little names, you stood before them worshipfully, naming them as gods."
W182L5 "Repeat the Name of God and call upon your Self, Whose Name is His."
W182L5 "Those who call upon the Name of God can not mistake the nameless for the Name, nor sin for grace nor bodies for the holy Son of God."
W182L5 "And should you join a brother as you sit with him in silence, and repeat God's Name along with him within your quiet minds, you have established there an altar which reaches to God Himself and to His Son."
W182L6 "Practice but this today; repeat God's Name slowly again and still again."
W182L6 "And then God's Name becomes our only thought, our only word, the only thing that occupies our minds, the only wish we have, the only sound with any meaning, and the only Name of everything that we desire to see; of everything that we would call our own."
W182L7 "And God will come and answer it Himself."
W182L8 "And to all other thoughts respond with This, and see God's Name replace the thousand little names you gave your thoughts, not realizing that there is One Name for all there is, and all that there will be."
W182L10 "Turn to the Name of God for your release, and it is given you."
W182L10 "Words are insignificant and all requests unneeded when God's Son calls on His Father's Name."
W182L10 "He calls on Him to let all things he thought he made be nameless now, and in their place the holy Name of God becomes his judgment of their worthlessness."
W182L11 "The universe consists of nothing but the Son of God who calls upon his Father."
W184L10 "Here you understand the Word, the Name Which God has given you; the One Identity Which all things share; the one acknowledgment of what is true."
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 "God has no name."
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."
W184L13 "No one can fail who seeks the meaning of the Name of God."
W184L14 "And though we use a different name for each awareness of an aspect of God's Son, we understand that they have but One Name Which He has given them."
W185L1 "Heaven would be completely given back to full awareness, memory of God entirely restored, the resurrection of all creation fully recognized."
W185L2 "He wants the peace of God and it is given him."
W185L3 "Two minds with one intent become so strong that what they will becomes the Will of God."
W185L4 "And what bargain can give them the peace of God?"
W185L5 "To mean you want the peace of God is to renounce all dreams."
W185L7 "We want the peace of God."
W185L8 "And being one, one question should be asked of all of them; "Is this what I would have in place of Heaven and the peace of God?""
W185L9 "You choose God's peace or you have asked for dreams, and dreams will come as you requested them."
W185L9 "Yet will God's peace come just as certainly, and to remain with you forever."
W185L10 "You want the peace of God."
W185L11 "No one who truly seeks the peace of God can fail to find it."
W185L11 "For he merely asks that he deceive himself no longer by denying to himself what is God's Will."
W185L11 "The peace of God is yours."
W185L12 "No gift of God can be unshared."
W185L12 "It is this attribute which sets the gifts of God apart from every dream that ever seemed to take the place of truth."
W185L13 "No one can lose and everyone must gain whenever any gift of God has been requested and received by anyone."
W185L13 "God gives but to unite."
W185L14 "It is this one intent we seek today, uniting our desires with the need of every heart, the call of every mind, the hope that lies beyond despair, the love attack would hide, the brotherhood that hate has sought to sever, but which still remains as God created it."
W185L14 "With Help like this beside us, can we fail today as we request the peace of God be given us?"
W186L1 "It but acknowledges the Will of God is done on earth as well as Heaven."
W186L3 "It is pride that would deny the Call of God Himself."
W186L4 "All false humility we lay aside today, that we may listen to God's Voice reveal to us what He would have us do."
W186L5 "If God's Voice assures you that salvation needs your part, and that the whole depends on you, be sure that it is so."
W186L6 "It is this image which quails and retreats in terror as the Voice for God assures you that you have the strength, the wisdom and the holiness to go beyond all images."
W186L6 "Sin can not tarnish the truth in you, and misery can come not near the holy home of God."
W186L7 "All this the Voice for God relates to you."
W186L7 "What can it tell the holy Son of God?"
W186L8 "We will accept the function God has given us, for all illusions rest upon the weird belief that we can make another for ourselves."
W186L9 "Is this the Son of God?"
W186L11 "Your plan may be impossible, but God's can never fail because He is its Source."
W187L9 "The great illusion of the fear of God diminishes to nothingness before the purity that you will look on here."
W187L10 "And here, before the altar to one God, one Father, one Creator and one Thought, we stand together as one Son of God."
W187L10 "The Name of God is on our lips."
W187L11 "We would behold it shining with the grace of God in everyone."
W188L3 "The peace of God is shining in you now, and from your heart extends around the world."
W188L4 "To you, the giver of the gift, does God Himself give thanks."
W188L5 "The peace of God can never be contained."
W188L5 "The peace of God is shining in you now, and in all living things."
W188L6 "For honest thoughts, untainted by the dream of worldly things outside yourself, become the holy messengers of God Himself."
W188L6 "And they point surely to their Source, where God the Father and the Son are One."
W188L7 "God's peace is shining on them, but they must remain with you as well, for they were born within your mind, as yours was born in God's."
W188L7 "For as the peace of God is shining in you, it must shine on them."
W188L8 "We take our wandering thoughts, and gently bring them back to where they fall in line with all the thoughts we share with God."
W188L9 "Thus are our minds restored with them, and we acknowledge that the peace of God still shines in us, and from us to all living things that share our life."
W188L9 "And we lay our saving blessing on it as we say: "The peace of God is shining in me now."
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."
W189L3 "This is the world the Love of God reveals."
W189L4 "Yet is the world of hatred equally unseen and inconceivable to those who feel God's Love in them."
W189L5 "If you feel the Love of God within you, you look out upon a world of mercy and of love."
W189L7 "Simply do this: Be still and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself."
W189L7 "Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God."
W189L8 "Your part is simply to allow all obstacles that you have interposed between the Son and God the Father to be quietly removed forever."
W189L8 "God will do His part in joyful and immediate response."
W189L8 "But do not make demands, nor point the road to God by which He should appear to you."
W189L9 "God knows His Son, and knows the way to him."
W190L1 "For pain proclaims God cruel."
W190L1 "It witnesses to God the Father's hatred of His Son, the sinfulness He sees in him, and His insane desire for revenge and death."
W190L3 "It demonstrates God is denied, confused with fear, perceived as mad and seen as traitor to Himself."
W190L3 "If God is real there is no pain."
W190L3 "If pain is real there is no God."
W190L3 "For vengeance is not part of love, and fear, denying love and using pain to prove that God is dead, has shown that death is victor over life."
W190L3 "The body is the Son of God, corruptible in death, as mortal as the Father he has slain."
W190L6 "And it will change entirely as you elect to change your mind, and choose the joy of God as what you really want."
W190L8 "In pain is God denied the Son He loves."
W190L10 "Here does the joy of God belong to you."
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 "You do not see what you have done by giving to the world the role of jailor to the Son of God."
W191L3 "Deny your own identity and you will not escape the madness which induced this weird, unnatural and ghostly thought which mocks creation and which laughs at God."
W191L4 "You are as God created you."
W191L6 "One holy thought like this and you are free; you are the holy Son of God Himself."
W191L7 "You need but tell yourself: "I am the holy Son of God Himself."
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?"
W191L10 "Then let the Son of God awaken from his sleep, and opening his holy eyes return again to bless the world he made."
W191L11 "You are the holy Son of God Himself."
W192L1 "It is your Father's holy Will that you complete Himself and that your Self shall be His sacred Son, forever pure as He, of love created and in love preserved, extending love, creating in its Name, forever one with God and with your Self."
W192L2 "It is not God's creation, for it is the means by which untruth can be undone."
W192L3 "Yet God created One Who has the power to translate into form the wholly formless."
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."
W192L5 "Only forgiveness can restore the peace that God intended for His holy Son."
W192L6 "We are one, and therefore give up nothing, for we have indeed been given everything by God."
W192L10 "The Son of God deserves your mercy."
W192L10 "He is as God created him."
W193L1 "God does not know of learning."
W193L2 "God sees no contradictions."
W193L2 "God does not perceive at all."
W193L3 "These are the lessons God would have you learn."
W193L8 "God would not have you suffer thus."
W193L8 "And God would have him not forget His Love, and all the gifts His Love brings with It."
W193L8 "Would you fail to learn the simple lessons Heaven's Teacher sets before you that all pain may disappear, and God may be remembered by His Son?"
W193L9 "All things are lessons God would have you learn."
W193L9 "For God has willed that laughter should replace each one, and that His Son be free again."
W193L11 "His are the lessons God would have us learn."
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."
W193L13 "And then you hold the key that opens Heaven's gate, and brings the Love of God the Father down to earth at last, to raise it up to Heaven."
W193L13 "God will take this final step Himself."
W194L1 "Your foot has reached the lawns that welcome you to Heaven's gate; the quiet place of peace where you await with certainty the final step of God."
W194L3 "And so each instant given unto God in passing, with the next one given Him already, is a time of your release from sadness, pain, and even death itself."
W194L4 "God holds your future as He holds your past and present."
W194L4 "You are but asked to let the future go, and place it in God's hands."
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."
W194L7 "What worry can beset the one who gives his future to the loving hands of God?"
W194L8 "Place, then, your future in the hands of God."
W194L8 "Who entrusts himself to God has also placed the world within the Hands to which he has himself appealed for comfort and security."
W194L9 "For in God's hands we rest untroubled, sure that only good can come to us."
W195L4 "You do not offer God your gratitude because your brother is more slave than you, nor could you sanely be enraged if he seems freer."
W195L4 "We offer thanks to God our Father that in us all things will find their freedom."
W195L6 "We give thanks for every living thing, for otherwise we offer thanks for nothing, and we fail to recognize the gifts of God to us."
W195L8 "The fear of God is now undone at last, and we forgive without comparing."
W195L9 "God has cared for us, and calls us Son."
W195L10 "God gives thanks to you, His Son, for being what you are; His Own completion and the Source of love, along with Him."
W195L10 "For love can walk no road except the way of gratitude, and thus we go who walk the way to God."
W196L4 "And what would seem to need a thousand years can easily be done in just one instant by the grace of God."
W196L5 "Yet it merely stood for the belief the fear of God is real."
W196L6 "The fear of God is real to anyone who thinks this thought is true."
W196L8 "For once you understand it is impossible that you be hurt except by your own thoughts, the fear of God must disappear."
W196L8 "And God, Whom you had thought to banish, can be welcomed back within the holy mind He never left."
W196L9 "Nor need you hide in terror from the deadly fear of God projection hides behind."
W196L10 "And thus a god outside yourself became your mortal enemy; the source of fear."
W196L11 "For fear of God has disappeared."
W196L12 "There is no Thought of God that does not go with you to help you reach that instant, and to go beyond it quickly, surely and forever."
W196L12 "When the fear of God is gone, there are no obstacles which still remain between you and the holy peace of God."
W197L1 "And so you think God's gifts are loans at best; at worst, deceptions which would cheat you of defenses to ensure that when He strikes He will not fail to kill."
W197L2 "How easily are God and guilt confused by those who know not what their thoughts can do."
W197L4 "In your gratitude are they accepted universally, and thankfully acknowledged by the Heart of God Himself."
W197L5 "God blesses every gift you give to Him and every gift is given Him because it can be given only to yourself, and what belongs to God must be His Own."
W197L6 "But learn to let forgiveness take away the sins you think you see outside yourself, and you can never think the gifts of God are lent but for a little while, before He snatches them away again in death."
W197L6 "Thank your Self for this, for He is grateful only unto God, and He gives thanks for you unto Himself."
W197L7 "Thanks be to you, the holy Son of God, for as you were created you contain all things within your Self."
W197L7 "And you are still as God created you."
W197L7 "In your heart the Heart of God is laid."
W197L8 "All that you think can only be His Thoughts, sharing with Him the holy Thoughts of God."
W197L8 "Earn now the gratitude you have denied yourself when you forgot the function God has given you."
W198L3 "Yet does it point to where the truth must be, and gives direction with the certainty of God Himself."
W198L3 "It is a dream in which the Son of God awakens to his Self and to his Father knowing They are One."
W198L4 "How could there be another way, when this one is the plan of God Himself?"
W198L6 "His Words are born in God, and come to you with Heaven's love upon them."
W198L6 "And as this one will fade away, the Word of God will come to take its place, for It will be remembered then and loved."
W198L7 "Yet all are one; a place where death is offered to God's Son and to his Father."
W198L7 "How mad to think that you could be condemned, and that the holy Son of God can die!"
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."
W198L10 "This is the gift the Holy Spirit holds for you from God your Father."
W198L11 "And now the Word of God alone remains upon it."
W198L11 "Then are symbols done, and everything you ever thought you made completely vanished from the mind which God forever knows to be His only Son."
W198L12 "In this vision of the Son, so brief that not an instant stands between this single sight and timelessness itself, you see the vision of yourself and then you disappear forever into God."
W198L13 "For He would give to us the gift that God has given us through Him today."
W199L2 "It rests in God, and who can be afraid who lives in Innocence and only loves?"
W199L4 "It thus becomes a vehicle which helps forgiveness be extended to the all-inclusive goal that it must reach, according to God's plan."
W199L7 "For He would give you perfect freedom, perfect joy, and hope that finds its full accomplishment in God."
W199L8 "You are God's Son."
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."
W199L8 "And God Himself extends His Love and happiness each time you say: "I am not a body."
W199L8 "I hear the Voice that God has given me, And it is only this my mind obeys.""
W200L1 "You will not find peace except the peace of God."
W200L1 "There is nothing else for you to find except the peace of God, unless you seek for misery and pain."
W200L6 "Is not the escape of God's beloved Son from evil dreams which he imagines, yet believes are true, a worthy purpose?"
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 "Yet can he learn to look on it another way, and find the peace of God."
W200L8 "Now the way is easy, sloping gently toward the bridge where freedom lies within the peace of God."
W200L9 "God alone is sure, and He will guide your footsteps."
W200L9 "And that is all there is to what appears to be a world apart from God, where bodies have reality."
W200L11 "The peace of God is ours, and only this will we accept and want."
W200L11 "For peace is union if it be of God."
W200L11 "We are close to home, and draw still nearer every time we say: "There is no peace except the peace of God, And I am glad and thankful it is so.""
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 "For I am still as God created me.""
W200R64 "For we attempt this time to reach a quickened pace along a shorter path to the serenity and peace of God."
W201L1 "I am blessed with oneness with the universe and God, my Father, One Creator of the Whole that is my Self, forever One with me."
W202L1 "Why would I choose to stay an instant more where I do not belong, when God Himself has given me His Voice to call me home?"
W203L1 " 183) "I call upon God's Name and on my own.""
W203L1 "The Name of God is my deliverance from every thought of evil and of sin, because it is my own as well as His."
W204L1 " 184) "The Name of God is my inheritance.""
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."
W205L1 " 185) "I want the peace of God.""
W205L1 "The peace of God is everything I want."
W205L1 "The peace of God is my one goal; the aim of all my living here, the end I seek, my purpose and my function and my life while I abide where I am not at home."
W206L1 "I am entrusted with the gifts of God, because I am His Son."
W207L1 "God's blessing shines upon me from within my heart, where He abides."
W208L1 " 188) "The peace of God is shining in me now.""
W208L1 "And in that stillness, we will find the peace of God."
W208L1 "It is within my heart, which witnesses to God Himself."
W209L1 " 189) "I feel the Love of God within me now.""
W209L1 "The Love of God is what created me."
W209L1 "The Love of God is everything I am."
W209L1 "The Love of God proclaimed me as His Son."
W209L1 "The Love of God within me sets me free."
W210L1 " 190) "I choose the joy of God instead of pain.""
W210L1 "It is not a thought of God, but one I thought apart from Him and from His Will."
W211L1 " 191) "I am the holy Son of God Himself.""
W211L1 "In silence and in true humility I seek God's glory, to behold it in the Son whom He created as my Self."
W212L1 " 192) "I have a function God would have me fill.""
W212L1 "Only the function God has given me can offer freedom."
W213L1 " 193) "All things are lessons God would have me learn.""
W213L1 "A lesson is a miracle which God offers to me, in place of thoughts I made that hurt me."
W214L1 "194) "I place the future in the hands of God.""
W214L1 "For what God gives can only be for good."
W219L1 "I am God's Son."
W220L1 " 200) "There is no peace except the peace of God.""
W220L1 "But let me follow Him Who leads me home, and peace is certain as the Love of God."
W220IN22 "For we wait in quiet expectation for our God and Father."
W220IN23 "Nor will we forget our hourly remembrance, in between calling to God when we have need of Him as we are tempted to forget our goal."
W220IN24 "Yet we will not content ourselves with simple practicing in the remaining holy instants which conclude the year that we have given God."
W220IN29 "And so we start upon the final part of this one holy year, which we have spent together in the search for Truth and God, Who is Its one Creator."
W220IN210 "We had a wish that God would fail to have the Son whom He created of Himself."
W220IN210 "We wanted God to change Himself, and be what we would make of Him."
W220IN210 "The memory of God is shimmering across the wide horizons of our minds."
W220IN210 "A moment more, and we who are God's Son are safely home, where He would have us be."
W220IN211 "For in this final section we will come to understand that we need only call to God, and all temptations disappear."
W220IN211 "We will accept the way God's plan will end, as we received the way it started."
W220W11 "What is sin except a false idea about God's Son?"
W220W11 "What then is free to take its place is now the Will of God."
W220W15 "He has forgiven you already, for such is His function, given Him by God."
W220W15 "Now must you share His function, and forgive whom He has saved, whose sinlessness He sees, and whom He honors as the Son of God."
W221L2 "God is here because we wait together."
W222L1 "God is with me."
W223L1 "I was mistaken when I thought I lived apart from God, a separate entity which moved in isolation, unattached, and housed within a body."
W223L1 "Now I know my life is God's, I have no other home, and I do not exist apart from Him."
W227L2 "The Son of God this day lays down his dreams."
W227L2 "The Son of God this day comes home again, released from sin and clad in holiness, with his right mind restored to him at last."
W230L1 "How merciful is God my Father, that when He created me He gave me peace forever."
W230W21 "Salvation is a promise, made by God, that you would find your way to Him at last."
W230W21 "God's Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts, and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace."
W230W22 "The Thought of peace was given to God's Son the instant that his mind had thought of war."
W230W23 "And what they hid is now revealed; an altar to the holy Name of God whereon His Word is written, with the gifts of your forgiveness laid before It, and the memory of God not far behind."
W230W24 "It is a dream in which there is no sorrow, for it holds a hint of all the glory given us by God."
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."
W234L1 "Nothing has ever happened to disturb the peace of God the Father and the Son."
W235L1 "I need but look upon all things that seem to hurt me, and with perfect certainty assure myself, "God wills that I be saved from this," and merely watch them disappear."
W235L1 "And I am saved because God in His mercy wills it so."
W236L1 "And thus I set it free, to do the Will of God."
W237L1 "I bring the world the tidings of salvation that I hear as God my Father speaks to me."
W237L2 ""Christ is my eyes today, and His the ears which listen to the Voice of God today."
W240L1 "We are the Son of God."
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."
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."
W242L1 "And He is glad to make no choices for me but the ones that lead to God."
W243L1 "Thus do I free myself and what I look upon, to be in peace as God created us."
W244L2 "In God are we secure."
W244L2 "For what can come to threaten God Himself, or make afraid what will forever be a part of Him?"
W245L2 "And thus we come to hear the Voice of God, Who speaks to us as we relate His Word; Whose Love we recognize because we share the Word that He has given unto us."
W246L1 "Let me not think that I can find the way to God if I have hatred in my heart."
W246L1 "Let me not try to hurt God's Son and think that I can know his Father or my Self."
W248L1 "Now I disown self-concepts and deceits and lies about the holy Son of God."
W248L1 "Now am I ready to accept him back as God created him, and as he is."
W249L1 "And so the journey which the Son of God began has ended in the Light from Which he came."
W250L1 "Let me behold the Son of God today, and witness to his glory."
W250W43 "Sin "proves" God's Son is evil; timelessness must have an end; eternal Life must die."
W250W43 "And God Himself has lost the Son He loves, with but corruption to complete Himself, His Will forever overcome by death, love slain by hate, and peace to be no more."
W250W44 "The Son of God may play he has become a body, prey to evil and to guilt, with but a little life that ends in death."
W250W45 "How long, oh Son of God, will you maintain the game of sin?"
W250W45 "How long, oh holy Son of God, how long?"
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."
W254L2 "And in the stillness, hallowed by His Love, God speaks to us and tells us of our Will, as we have chosen to remember Him."
W255L1 "And yet my God assures me that His Son is like Himself."
W255L1 "Let me this day have faith in Him Who says I am God's Son."
W255L1 "God's Son can have no cares, and must remain forever in the peace of Heaven."
W256L1 "The way to God is through forgiveness here."
W256L1 "And who would yet remain asleep in heavy clouds of doubt about the holiness of him whom God created sinless?"
W256L1 "God is our goal; forgiveness is the means by which our minds return to Him at last."
W257L1 "Let us therefore be determined to remember what we want today, that we may unify our thoughts and actions meaningfully, and achieve only what God would have us do today."
W258L1 "All that is needful is to train our minds to overlook all little, senseless aims, and to remember that our goal is God."
W258L1 "Shall we continue to allow God's grace to shine in unawareness, while the toys and trinkets of the world are sought instead?"
W258L1 "God is our only goal, our only Love."
W259L1 "Sin is the only thought that makes the goal of God seem unobtainable."
W259L1 "And what but this could be the source of fear, obscuring God's creation; giving love the attributes of fear and of attack?"
W260W51 "The body is a fence the Son of God imagines he has built to separate parts of his Self from other parts."
W260W52 "For the Son of God's impermanence is "proof" his fences work, and do the task his mind assigns to them."
W260W52 "And if he did not die, what "proof" is there that God's eternal Son has been destroyed?"
W260W54 "The body is the means by which God's Son returns to sanity."
W260W54 "The Son of God extends his hand to reach his brother, and to help him walk along the road with him."
W261L1 "I live in God."
W262L1 "For he is part of me and I of him, and we are part of You Who are our Source, eternally united in Your Love; eternally the holy Son of God.""
W263L2 "Let all appearances seem pure to us, that we may pass them by in innocence, and walk together to our Father's house as brothers and the holy Sons of God."
W265L1 "What is reflected here is in God's Mind."
W265L1 "Yet is my mind at one with God's."
W266L2 "This day we enter into paradise, calling upon God's Name and on our own, acknowledging our Self in each of us; united in the holy Love of God."
W266L2 "How many Saviors God has given us!"
W267L1 "Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love."
W267L1 "I am a messenger of God, directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love, and held forever quiet and at peace within His loving arms."
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."
W270W61 "Christ is God's Son as He created him."
W270W61 "He is the Self we share, uniting us with one another, and with God as well."
W270W61 "He abides unchanged forever in the Mind of God."
W270W62 "Christ is the link that keeps you one with God, and guarantees that separation is no more than an illusion of despair."
W270W62 "He is the part in Which God's Answer lies; where all decisions are already made, and dreams are over."
W270W63 "Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home in God alone, does Christ remain at peace, within the Heaven of your holy mind."
W270W64 "He will exchange them for the final dream which God appointed as the end of dreams."
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?"
W270W65 "As we behold His glory, will we know we have no need of learning or perception or of time, or anything except the holy Self, the Christ Whom God created as His Son."
W271L1 "Today I choose to look upon what Christ would have me see, to listen to God's Voice, and seek the witnesses to what is true in God's creation."
W271L1 "In Christ's sight, the world and God's creation meet, and as they come together all perception disappears."
W272L1 "God's Son must be as You created him.""
W272L2 "And if we hear temptation call to us to stay and linger in a dream, we turn aside and ask ourselves if we, the Sons of God, could be content with dreams, when Heaven can be chosen just as easily as hell, and love will happily replace all fear."
W273L1 "We need but tell our minds, with certainty, "The stillness of the peace of God is mine," and nothing can intrude upon the peace that God Himself has given to His Son."
W275L1 "Let us today attend the Voice of God, Which speaks an ancient lesson, no more true today than any other day."
W275L1 "For the Voice of God tells us of things we cannot understand alone, nor learn apart."
W275L1 "And in this the healing of the Voice of God is found."
W276L1 "What is the Word of God?"
W276L1 "And thus did God become the Father of the Son He loves, for thus was he created."
W277L2 "Let us not worship idols, nor believe in any laws idolatry would make to hide the freedom of the Son of God."
W277L2 "And he can not be bound unless God's Truth can lie, and God can will that He deceive Himself."
W279L1 "The end of dreams is promised me, because God's Son is not abandoned by His Love."
W279L1 "Should I wait in chains which have been severed for release, when God is offering me freedom now?"
W280L1 "Whom God created limitless is free."
W280L1 "No Thought of God has left Its Father's Mind."
W280L1 "No Thought of God is limited at all."
W280L1 "No Thought of God but is forever pure."
W280L1 "Can I lay limits on the Son of God, whose Father willed that he be limitless, and like Himself in freedom and in love?"
W280W71 "As He must bridge the gap between reality and dreams, perception leads to knowledge through the grace that God has given Him, to be His gift to everyone who turns to Him for truth."
W280W74 "From knowledge, where He has been placed by God, the Holy Spirit calls to you, to let forgiveness rest upon your dreams, and be restored to sanity and peace of mind."
W280W75 "The Holy Spirit is His gift, by Which the quietness of Heaven is restored to God's beloved Son."
W280W75 "Would you refuse to take the function of completing God, when all He wills is that you be complete?"
W282L1 "This the decision not to be insane, and to accept myself as God Himself, my Father and my Source, created me."
W282L1 "And this the choice to recognize the Self Whom God created as the Son He loves, and Who remains my one Reality."
W283L1 ""Father, I made an image of myself, and it is this I call the Son of God."
W283L1 "His holiness remains the light of Heaven and the Love of God."
W283L2 "Now are we one in shared Identity, with God our Father as our only Source, and everything created part of us."
W285L1 "Today I wake with joy, expecting but the happy things of God to come to me."
W286L2 "Today we will not doubt the end which God Himself has promised us."
W287L1 "What gift could I prefer before the peace of God?"
W290L1 "What I perceive without God's own correction for the sight I made is frightening and painful to behold."
W290W84 "The real world is the symbol that the dream of sin and guilt is over, and God's Son no longer sleeps."
W290W85 "Now He waits but that one instant more for God to take His final step, and time has disappeared, taking perception with it as it goes, and leaving but the Truth to be Itself."
W290W85 "That instant is our goal, for it contains the memory of God."
W291L1 "And it is given us to recognize it is a holiness in which we share; it is the Holiness of God Himself."
W292L1 "God's promises make no exceptions."
W292L1 "For God's Will is done in earth and Heaven."
W294L1 "I am a Son of God."
W294L1 "Did God create the mortal and corruptible?"
W294L1 "What use has God's beloved Son for what must die?"
W298L1 "I accept instead what God establishes as mine, sure that in that alone I will be saved; sure that I go through fear to meet my Love."
W298L2 "And I am grateful for Your holy gifts of certain sanctuary, and escape from everything that would obscure my love for God my Father and His holy Son.""
W299L1 "Yet God my Father, Who created it, acknowledges my holiness as His."
W300W91 "Christ's Second Coming, which is sure as God, is merely the correction of mistakes and the return of sanity."
W300W91 "It is the invitation to God's Word to take illusion's place; the willingness to let forgiveness rest upon all things without exception and without reserve."
W300W92 "There is no end to the release the Second Coming brings, as God's creation must be limitless."
W300W93 "The Second Coming ends the lessons which the Holy Spirit teaches, making way for the Last Judgment, in which learning ends in one last summary that will extend beyond itself, and reaching up to God."
W300W93 "The Second Coming is the time in which all minds are given to the hands of Christ, to be returned to Spirit in the Name of true creation and the Will of God."
W300W94 "In this equality is Christ restored as one Identity, in Which all Sons of God acknowledge that they all are one."
W300W94 "And God the Father smiles upon His Son, His one creation and His only joy."
W300W95 "Let us rejoice that we can do God's Will, and join together in Its holy light."
W300W95 "Behold, the Son of God is one in us, and we can reach our Father's Love through him."
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."
W303L1 "Let all God's holy Thoughts surround me, and be still with me while Heaven's Son is born."
W306L1 "Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God."
W307L2 "And with this prayer, we enter silently into a state where conflict cannot come, because we join our holy will with God's in recognition that they are but one."
W309L1 "Within me is Eternal Innocence, because it is God's Will that It be there forever and forever."
W309L1 "To look within is but to find my will as God created it, and as it is."
W309L1 "Within me is the holiness of God."
W310W101 "Christ's Second Coming gives the Son of God the gift to hear the Voice for God proclaim that what is false is false, and what is true has never changed."
W310W102 "Bodies now are useless, and will therefore fade away, because the Son of God is limitless."
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."
W310W103 "To fear God's saving grace is but to fear complete release from suffering, return to peace, security and happiness, and union with your own Identity."
W310W104 "God's Final Judgment is as merciful as every step in His appointed plan to bless His Son, and call Him to return to the eternal peace He shares with him."
W310W104 "For It alone can heal all sorrow, wipe away all tears, and gently waken from his dreams of pain the Son whom God acknowledges as His."
W310W105 "This is God's Final Judgment: "You are still My holy Son, forever innocent, forever loving and forever loved, as limitless as Your Creator, and completely changeless and forever pure."
W311L1 "He will relieve you of the agony of all the judgments you have made against yourself, and re-establish peace of mind by giving you God's Judgment of His Son."
W315L1 "And everyone who finds the way to God becomes my Savior, pointing out the way to me, and giving me his certainty that what he learned is surely mine as well."
W315L2 ""I thank You, Father, for the many gifts that come to me today and every day from every Son of God."
W316L1 "Let me come to where my treasures are, and enter in where I am truly welcome and at home among the gifts that God has given me."
W318L1 "In me, God's holy Son, are reconciled all parts of Heaven's plan to save the world."
W318L1 "I am the means by which God's Son is saved, because salvation's purpose is to find the sinlessness which God has placed in me."
W318L1 "I am God's Son, His one Eternal Love."
W319L1 "And yet it is the Will of God I learn that what one gains is given unto all."
W320L1 "The Son of God is limitless."
W320W111 "Creation is the sum of all God's Thoughts, in number infinite, and everywhere without all limit."
W320W111 "Forever and forever are God's Thoughts exactly as They were and as They are, unchanged through time and after time is done."
W320W112 "God's Thoughts are given all the power that Their own Creator has."
W320W112 "What God has willed to be forever one will still be one when time is over; and will not be changed throughout the course of time, remaining as it was before the thought of time began."
W320W113 "Creation is the holy Son of God, for in Creation is His Will complete in every aspect, making every part container of the whole."
W320W114 "We are Creation; we the Sons of God."
W320W114 "God's memory is in our holy minds, which know their oneness and their unity with their Creator."
W320W114 "Let our function be only to let this memory return, only to let God's Will be done on earth, only to be restored to sanity, and to be but as God created us."
W321L2 "And how sure is all the world's salvation, when we learn our freedom can be found in God alone."
W322L1 "And as illusions go I find the gifts illusions tried to hide, awaiting me in shining welcome, and in readiness to give God's ancient messages to me."
W322L1 "And every dream serves only to conceal the Self Which is God's only Son, the likeness of Himself, the Holy One Who still abides in Him forever, as He still abides in me."
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."
W326L1 "Let me know that I am an Effect of God, and so I have the power to create like You."
W326L1 "Your plan I follow here, and at the end I know that You will gather Your Effects into the tranquil Heaven of Your Love, where earth will disappear, and separate things unite in glory as the Son of God.""
W326L2 "Let us today behold earth disappear, at first transformed, and then, forgiven, fade entirely into God's holy Will."
W327L1 "For God has promised He will hear my call, and answer me Himself."
W328L1 "What seems to be the second place is first, for all things we perceive are upside-down until we listen to the Voice of God."
W328L1 "It seems that we will gain autonomy but by our striving to be separate, and that our independence from the rest of God's creation is the way in which salvation is obtained."
W329L2 "Through It we find our way at last to God."
W330L1 "Why should we teach them they are powerless, when God holds out His power and His Love, and bids them take what is already theirs?"
W330L1 "The mind that is made willing to accept God's gifts has been restored to Spirit, and extends its freedom and its joy, as is the Will of God united with its own."
W330L1 "The Self Which God created cannot sin, and therefore cannot suffer."
W330W121 "It is the will that sees the Will of God as enemy, and takes a form in which It is denied."
W330W121 "The ego is the "proof" that strength is weak and love is fearful, life is really death, and what opposes God alone is true."
W330W122 "In its insanity it thinks it has become a victor over God Himself, and in its terrible autonomy it "sees" the Will of God has been destroyed."
W330W123 "The Son of God is egoless."
W330W123 "What can he know of madness and the death of God, when he abides in Him?"
W330W124 "In suffering, the price for faith in it is so immense that crucifixion of the Son of God is offered daily at its darkened shrine, and blood must flow before the altar where its sickly followers prepare its feast of death."
W330W125 "And peace will be restored forever to the holy minds which God created as His Son, His dwelling-place, His joy, His love, completely His, completely one with Him."
W331L2 "Forgiveness shows us that God's Will is one, and that we share It."
W331L2 "Let us look upon the holy sights forgiveness shows today, that we may find the peace of God."
W334L1 "God's Voice is offering the peace of God to all who hear and choose to follow Him."
W334L1 "And so I go to find the treasures God has given me."
W336L1 "For here, and only here, is peace of mind restored, for this the dwelling-place of God Himself."
W337L1 "God has already done all things that need be done."
W337L1 "And I must learn I need do nothing of myself, for I need but accept my Self, my sinlessness, created for me, now already mine, to feel God's Love protecting me from harm, to understand my Father loves His Son; to know I am the Son my Father loves."
W338L1 "Yet God has planned that His beloved Son will be redeemed."
W340W133 "And each is laid before the Word of God upon the universal altar to Creator and creation, in the Light of perfect purity and endless joy."
W341L2 "For it contains the Word of God to us, and in its kind reflection we are saved."
W342L2 "And as we go, the world goes with us on the way to God."
W343L2 "The mercy and the peace of God are free."
W344L2 "How near we are to one another, as we go to God."
W344L2 "How close the ending of the dream of sin, and the redemption of the Son of God."
W346L2 "And when the evening comes today, we will remember nothing but the peace of God."
W346L2 "For we will learn today what peace is ours when we forget all things except God's Love."
W347L2 "Be very still, and hear the gentle Voice for God assuring you that He has judged you as the Son He loves."
W348L2 "God's grace suffices us in everything that He would have us do."
W350L1 "The Son of God incorporates all things within himself as You created him."
W350W141 ""I am God's Son, complete and healed and whole, shining in the reflection of His Love."
W350W141 "I am the holy home of God Himself."
W350W142 "Yet in the final days of this one year we gave to God together, you and I, we found a single purpose that we shared."
W350W144 "Ours are the ears which hear the Voice of God proclaim the world as sinless."
W350W145 "We are the holy messengers of God who speak for Him, and carrying His Word to everyone whom He has sent to us, we learn that It is written on our hearts."
W350W145 "We bring glad tidings to the Son of God, who thought he suffered."
W350W145 "And as he sees the gate of Heaven stand open before him, he will enter in and disappear into the Heart of God."
W358L1 "You speak for God, and so You speak for me, and what You give me comes from God Himself."
W359L1 "But we have not made sinners of the holy Sons of God."
W360FL2 "His is the only way to find the peace that God has given us."
W360FL2 "It is His way that everyone must travel in the end, because it is this ending God Himself appointed."
W360FL3 "It is the goal that God has given us."
W360FL3 "For all that we forgive we will not fail to recognize as part of God Himself."
W360FL4 "For it is that remembrance which contains the memory of God, and points the way to Him and to the Heaven of His peace."
W360FL5 "We are forgiven now, and we are saved from all the wrath we thought belonged to God, and found it was a dream."
W361L1 "And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son."
W362L1 "And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son."
W363L1 "And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son."
W364L1 "And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son."
W365L1 "And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son."
W365EP2 "Indeed, your pathway is more certain still, for it can not be possible to change the course of those whom God has called to Him."
W365EP2 "His is the Voice of God, and also yours."
W365EP3 "Henceforth, hear but the Voice for God and for your Self when you retire from the world, to seek reality instead."
W365EP3 "His is the Word that God has given you."
W365EP5 "We will be told exactly what God wills for us each time there is a choice to make."
W365EP5 "And He will speak for God and for your Self, thus making sure that hell will claim you not, and that each choice you make brings Heaven nearer to your reach."
W365EP5 "For we go homeward to an open door which God has held unclosed to welcome us."
W365EP5 "He loves God's Son as we would love him, and He teaches us how to behold him through His eyes, and love him as He does."
W365EP5 "God's angels hover close, and all about."
M1A4 "Into this hopeless and closed learning situation, which teaches nothing but despair and death, God sends His teachers."
M1A5 "Except for God's teachers there would be no hope of salvation, for the world of sin would be forever real."
M1A5 "This is a manual for the teachers of God."
M2A1 "A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one."
M2A1 "He has entered an agreement with God, even if he does not yet believe in Him."
M2A1 "He has become a teacher of God."
M2A3 "There is a course for every teacher of God."
M2A3 "Its central theme is always, "God's Son is guiltless, and in his innocence is his salvation.""
M2A4 "There was never a question of outcome, for what can change the Will of God?"
M2A4 "Yet time has an ending, and it is this that the teachers of God are appointed to bring about."
M3A1 "Certain pupils have been assigned to each of God's teachers, and they will begin to look for him as soon as he has answered the Call."
M3A2 "Further, the plan for this correction was established and completed simultaneously, for the Will of God is entirely apart from time."
M3A2 "The instant the idea of separation entered the mind of God's Son, in that same instant was God's Answer given."
M3A4 "God's Will in everything but seems to take time in the working-out."
M3A5 "God's Teacher speaks to any two who join together for learning purposes."
M3A5 "The relationship is holy because of that purpose, and God has promised to send His Spirit into any holy relationship."
M3A5 "And thus he who was the learner becomes a teacher of God Himself, for he has made the one decision that gave his teacher to him."
M4A1 "The teachers of God have no set teaching level."
M4A1 "Each teaching-learning situation involves a different relationship at the beginning, although the ultimate goal is always the same; to make of the relationship a holy relationship, in which both can look upon the Son of God as sinless."
M4A1 "There is no-one from whom a teacher of God cannot learn, so there is no-one whom he cannot teach."
M4A1 "Therefore, the plan includes very specific contacts to be made for each teacher of God."
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."
M4A3 "Perhaps the best way to demonstrate that these levels cannot exist is simply to say that any level of the teaching-learning situation is part of God's plan for Atonement, and His plan can have no levels, being a reflection of His Will."
M4A3 "God's teachers work at different levels, but the result is always the same."
M4A4 "God is not mistaken in His Son."
M4A5 "No teacher of God can fail to find the Help he needs."
M5A1 "The surface traits of God's teachers are not at all alike."
M5A1 "Nor at the beginning stages of their functioning as teachers of God, have they yet acquired the deeper characteristics that will establish them as what they are."
M5A1 "God gives special gifts to His teachers because they have a special role in His plan for Atonement."
M5A1 "These special gifts, born in the holy relationship toward which the teaching-learning situation is geared, become characteristic of all teachers of God who have advanced in their own learning."
M5A2 "All differences among the Sons of God are temporary."
M5A2 "Nevertheless, in time it can be said that the advanced teachers of God have the following characteristics:"
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."
M5B2 "And who would place his faith in the shabby offerings of the ego when the gifts of God are laid before him?"
M5B3 "When the teacher of God has learned that much, he goes on to the second stage."
M5B4 "Next, the teacher of God must go through "a period of sorting-out.""
M5B5 "The third stage through which the teacher of God must go can be called a "period of relinquishment.""
M5B5 "Few teachers of God escape this distress entirely."
M5B5 "Therefore, the period of overlap is apt to be one in which the teacher of God feels called upon to sacrifice his own best interests on behalf of truth."
M5B6 "This is a quiet time, in which the teacher of God rests a while in reasonable peace."
M5B6 "Its potential is literally staggering, and the teacher of God is now at the point in his progress at which he sees in it his whole way out."
M5B6 "The teacher of God needs this period of respite."
M5B7 "Now must the teacher of God understand that he did not really know what was valuable and what was valueless."
M5C1 "All other traits of God's teachers rest on trust."
M5C2 "The peace of mind which the advanced teachers of God experience is largely due to their perfect honesty."
M5C2 "There is no challenge to a teacher of God."
M5C2 "Challenge implies doubt, and the trust on which God's teachers rest secure makes doubt impossible."
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."
M5D1 "God's teachers do not judge."
M5D1 "Judgment implies a lack of trust, and trust remains the bedrock of the teacher of God's whole thought system."
M5D1 "No teacher of God can judge and hope to learn."
M5E1 "Harm is impossible for God's teachers."
M5E1 "It demonstrates the absence of God's curriculum and its replacement by insanity."
M5E1 "No teacher of God but must learn, - and fairly early in his training, - that harmfulness completely obliterates his function from his awareness."
M5E1 "Nor can God's Teacher be heard at all except by those who realize that harm can actually achieve nothing."
M5E2 "Therefore God's teachers are wholly gentle."
M5E2 "The might of God's teachers lies in their gentleness, for they have understood their evil thoughts came neither from God's Son nor his Creator."
M5F1 "God's teachers trust in Him."
M5F1 "They hold His gifts and follow in His way, because God's Voice directs them in all things."
M5G1 "God's teachers have learned how to be simple."
M5G1 "And does what God created need defense?"
M5G1 "No-one can become an advanced teacher of God until he fully understands that defenses are but the foolish guardians of mad illusions."
M5G1 "Yet when the teacher of God finally agrees to look past them, he finds nothing was there."
M5G1 "And it is God."
M5H1 "The term generosity has special meaning to the teacher of God."
M5H1 "Like all the other attributes of God's teachers this one rests ultimately on trust, for without trust no-one can be generous in the true sense."
M5H1 "To the teachers of God, it means "giving away" in order to keep."
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 "The teacher of God is generous out of Self-interest."
M5H2 "The teacher of God does not want anything he cannot give away, because he realizes it would be valueless to him by definition."
M5H2 "But he does want to keep for himself all things that are of God, and therefore for His Son."
M5I1 "Patience is natural to the teacher of God."
M5I1 "Even so, the teacher of God is willing to reconsider all his past decisions, if they are causing pain to anyone."
M5J1 "The extent of the teacher of God's faithfulness is the measure of his advancement in the curriculum."
M5J1 "Faithfulness is the teacher of God's trust in the Word of God to set all things right; not some, but all."
M5J2 "Faithfulness, then, combines in itself the other attributes of God's teachers."
M5J2 "It implies acceptance of the Word of God and His definition of His Son."
M5K1 "The centrality of open-mindedness, perhaps the last of the attributes the teacher of God acquires, is easily understood when its relation to forgiveness is recognized."
M5K1 "As judgment shuts the mind against God's Teacher, so open-mindedness invites Him to come in."
M5K1 "As condemnation judges the Son of God as evil, so open-mindedness permits him to be judged by the Voice for God on His behalf."
M5K3 "You may have noticed that the list of attributes of God's teachers does not include those things which are the Son of God's inheritance."
M5K3 "What God has given is so far beyond our curriculum that learning but disappears in its presence."
M5K3 "It is the function of God's teachers to bring true learning to the world."
M5K3 "It is given to the teachers of God to bring the glad tidings of complete forgiveness to the world."
M6B1 "Sickness is a method, conceived in madness, for placing God's Son on his Father's throne."
M6B1 "God is seen as outside, fierce and powerful, eager to keep all power for Himself."
M6B2 "It symbolizes the defeat of God's Son and the triumph of his Father over him."
M6B2 "It represents the ultimate defiance in a direct form which the Son of God is forced to recognize."
M6B2 "Now has he given himself what God would give to him, and thus entirely usurped the throne of his Creator."
M6C4 "The final outcome of this lesson is the remembrance of God."
M6D1 "If the patient must change his mind in order to be healed, what does the teacher of God do?"
M6D1 "For those already willing to change their mind he has no function except to rejoice with them, for they have become teachers of God with him."
M6D2 "To them God's teachers come to represent another choice which they had forgotten."
M6D2 "The simple presence of a teacher of God is a reminder."
M6D2 "As God's messengers, they are the symbols of salvation."
M6D2 "They ask the patient for forgiveness for God's Son in his own Name."
M6D2 "With God's Word in their minds they come in benediction, not to heal the sick but to remind them of the remedy God has already given them."
M6D2 "It is not their voice that speaks the Word of God."
M6D2 "Behold, you Son of God, what life can offer you."
M6D3 "Not once do the advanced teachers of God consider the forms of sickness in which their brother believes."
M6D3 "They seek for God's Voice in this brother who would so deceive himself as to believe God's Son can suffer."
M6D3 "And they remind him that he has not made himself, and must remain as God created him."
M6D3 "And this is the function of God's teachers; to see no will as separate from their own, nor theirs as separate from God's."
M7A1 "The teacher of God has seen the correction of his errors in the mind of the patient, recognizing it for what it is."
M7A2 "And what is time before the gifts of God?"
M7A2 "We have referred many times in the text to the storehouse of treasures laid up equally for the giver and the receiver of God's gifts."
M7A2 "No teacher of God should feel disappointed if he has offered healing and it does not appear to have been received."
M7A3 "It is not the function of God's teachers to evaluate the outcome of their gifts."
M7A4 "God's treasure house can never be empty."
M7A4 "Yet is its fullness guaranteed by God."
M7A4 "What concern, then, can a teacher of God have about what becomes of his gifts?"
M7A4 "Given by God to God, who in this holy exchange can receive less than everything?"
M8A1 "For a teacher of God to remain concerned about the result of healing is to limit the healing."
M8A1 "It is now the teacher of God himself whose mind needs to be healed."
M8A2 "Whenever a teacher of God has tried to be a channel for healing he has succeeded."
M8A2 "Now the teacher of God has only one course to follow."
M8A3 "It is in this that the teacher of God must trust."
M8A3 "The teacher of God is a miracle worker because he gives the gifts he has received."
M8A3 "He thought the gifts of God could be withdrawn."
M8A3 "And so the teacher of God can only recognize it for what it is, and let it be corrected for him."
M8A4 "This is the certainty that gives God's teachers the power to be miracle workers, for they have put their trust in Him."
M8A5 "The real basis for doubt about the outcome of any problem that has been given to God's Teacher for resolution is always self-doubt."
M10A1 "Changes are required in the minds of God's teachers."
M10A1 "Remember that no-one is where he is by accident, and chance plays no part in God's plan."
M10A1 "It is most unlikely that changes in his attitudes would not be the first step in the newly-made teacher of God's training."
M10A2 "As the teacher of God advances in his training, he learns one lesson with increasing thoroughness."
M10A2 "This becomes easier and easier, as the teacher of God learns to give up his own judgment."
M10A2 "The giving up of judgment, the obvious prerequisite for hearing God's Voice, is usually a fairly slow process, not because it is difficult, but because it is apt to be perceived as personally insulting."
M11A2 "It is necessary for the teacher of God to realize not that he should not judge, but that he cannot."
M11A2 "It is the only Judgment there is, and it is only one: "God's Son is guiltless, and sin does not exist.""
M11A5 "Now can the teacher of God rise up unburdened, and walk lightly on."
M11A6 "The teacher of God lays it down happily the instant he recognizes its cost."
M11A6 "Teacher of God, this step will bring you peace."
M12A1 "Yet the Word of God promises other things that seem impossible, as well as this."
M12A1 "The world you see cannot be the world God loves, and yet His Word assures us that He loves the world."
M12A1 "God's Word has promised us that peace is possible here, and what He promises can hardly be impossible."
M12A2 "This time, ask yourself whether your judgment or the Word of God is more likely to be true."
M12A2 "God offers the world salvation; your judgment would condemn it."
M12A2 "God says there is no death; your judgment sees but death as the inevitable end of life."
M12A2 "God's Word assures you that He loves the world; your judgment says it is unlovable."
M12A3 "But in the Judgment of God what is reflected here is only peace."
M12A4 "Yet has God's Judgment on this distorted world redeemed it and made it fit to welcome peace."
M12A4 "Peace now belongs here, because a Thought of God has entered."
M12A4 "What else but a Thought of God turns hell to Heaven merely by being what It is?"
M13A1 "This One, sanctified and redeemed, becomes the Self Who is the Son of God."
M13A1 "And being limitless, His Thoughts are joined with God's forever and ever."
M13A1 "His perception of Himself is based upon God's Judgment, not His Own."
M13A1 "Thus does He share God's Will, and bring His Thoughts to still deluded minds."
M13A1 "He is forever One, because He is as God created Him."
M13A2 "Thus does the son of man become the Son of God."
M13A2 "Nothing external alters, but everything internal now reflects only the Love of God."
M13A2 "God can no longer be feared, for the mind sees no cause for punishment."
M13A2 "God's teachers appear to be many, for that is the world's need."
M13A2 "Yet being joined in one purpose, and one they share with God, how could they be separate from each other?"
M13A2 "And God works through them now as One, for that is what they are."
M13A3 "Only a very few can hear God's Voice at all, and even they cannot communicate His messages directly through the Spirit Which gave them."
M13A3 "So do God's teachers need a body, for their Unity could not be recognized directly."
M13A4 "Yet what makes them God's teachers is their recognition of the proper purpose of the body."
M13A4 "As they advance in their profession, they become more and more certain that the body's function is but to let God's Voice speak through it to human ears."
M13A4 "From this understanding will come the recognition, in this new teacher of God, of what the body's purpose really is; the only use there really is for it."
M13A4 "The teachers of God appear to share the illusion of separation, but because of what they use the body for, they do not believe in the illusion despite appearances."
M13A5 "Use it to bring the Word of God to those who have It not, and the body becomes holy."
M13A5 "Yet the teacher of God does not make this decision alone."
M13A5 "God's Voice will tell him when he has fulfilled his role, just as It tells him what his function is."
M13A6 "God's teachers choose to look on dreams a while."
M13A6 "Awareness of dreaming is the real function of God's teachers."
M13A6 "And it is this God's teachers acknowledge as behind the dream, beyond all seeing and yet surely theirs."
M14A3 "Only through God's Word could this be possible."
M14A4 "God's teachers can have no regret on giving up the pleasures of the world."
M14A6 "In one sense that is true, for you hold dear the things that crucify God's Son."
M14A6 "And what, oh teacher of God, is it that you want?"
M14A6 "You have been called by God, and you have answered."
M14A6 "There is no other voice in all the world that echoes God's."
M14A7 "The Word of God has no exceptions."
M14A7 "It is Its holiness that points to God."
M14A7 "For it is here the split with God occurs."
M14A8 "Teacher of God, do not forget the meaning of sacrifice, and remember what each decision you make must mean in terms of cost."
M14A8 "Decide for God, and everything is given you at no cost at all."
M14A8 "God holds out His Word to you, for He has need of teachers."
M15A2 "It is His Call God's teachers answer, turning to Him in silence to receive His Word."
M15A3 "But time stands still, and waits on the goals of God's teachers."
M15A3 "The illusion of orders of difficulty is an obstacle the teacher of God must learn to pass by and leave behind."
M15A3 "One sin perfectly forgiven by one teacher of God can make salvation complete."
M15A4 "What, then, is the function of the teacher of God in this concluding lesson?"
M15A4 "He need merely trust that, if God's Voice tells him it is a lesson he can learn, he can learn it."
M15A5 "To turn hell into Heaven is the function of God's teachers, for what they teach are lessons in which Heaven is reflected."
M15A5 "And now sit down in true humility, and realize that all God would have you do you can do."
M16A1 "No-one can escape God's final judgment."
M16A1 "He will hear his sinlessness proclaimed around and around the world, setting it free as God's final judgment on him is received."
M16A1 "Time pauses as eternity comes near, and silence lies across the world that everyone may hear this judgment of the Son of God: "Holy are you, eternal, free and whole, At peace forever in the Heart of God."
M16A2 "Is this your judgment on yourself, teacher of God?"
M16A2 "What is your judgment on the world, teacher of God?"
M16A3 "God's Judgment waits for you to set you free."
M16A3 "There is no deceit in God."
M17A1 "To the advanced teacher of God this question is meaningless."
M17A1 "For the advanced teacher of God, then, this question is superfluous."
M17A2 "What must they do to learn to give the day to God?"
M17A3 "This must depend on the teacher of God himself."
M17A4 "It may be that the teacher of God is not in a situation which fosters quiet thought as he awakes."
M17A4 "If this is so, let him but remember that he chooses to spend time with God as soon as possible, and let him do so."
M17A4 "One can as easily give God only an instant, and in that instant join with Him completely."
M17A5 "If possible, however, just before sleeping is a desirable time to devote to God."
M17A5 "If it is expedient to spend this time earlier, at least be sure that you do not forget a brief period,- not more than a moment will do,- in which you close your eyes and think of God."
M17A7 "How simply and how easily does time slip by for the teacher of God who has accepted His protection!"
M17A7 "There is no difference in his state at different times and different places, because they are all one to God."
M17A8 "Yet there will be temptations along the way the teacher of God has yet to travel, and he has need of reminding himself throughout the day of his protection."
M17A8 "It is not good enough for God's teacher because it is not good enough for God's Son."
M17A9 "For all temptation is nothing more than the attempt to substitute another will for God's."
M17A9 "When all magic is recognized as merely nothing, the teacher of God has reached the most advanced state."
M17A10 "There is no substitute for the Will of God."
M17A10 "In simple statement, it is to this fact that the teacher of God devotes his day."
M17A10 "Perhaps he needs to remember "God is with me."
M17A11 "It is God's teachers who must teach it that it can."
M17A11 ""There is no will but God's.""
M17A11 "All through his training, every day and hour, and even every minute and second, must God's teachers learn to recognize the forms of magic and perceive their meaninglessness."
M18A1 "If this issue is mishandled, the teacher of God has hurt himself and has also attacked his pupil."
M18A1 "How to deal with magic thus becomes a major lesson for the teacher of God to master."
M18A1 "If a magic thought arouses anger in any form, God's teacher can be sure that he is strengthening his own belief in sin and has condemned himself."
M18A2 "And in this gift is his judgment upon the holy Son of God."
M18A5 "A magic thought, by its mere presence, acknowledges a separation from God."
M18A5 "It states, in the clearest form possible, that the mind which thinks it believes it has a separate will that can oppose the Will of God and succeed."
M18A5 "Who usurps the place of God and takes it for himself now has a deadly "enemy.""
M18A7 "Each one says clearly to your frightened mind, "You have usurped the place of God."
M18A7 "Here we have the fear of God most starkly represented."
M18A7 "For in that thought has guilt already raised madness to the throne of God Himself."
M18A8 " Into this hopeless situation God sends His teachers."
M18A8 "They bring the light of hope from God Himself."
M18A9 "Remember then, teacher of God, that anger recognizes a reality that is not there; yet is the anger certain witness that you do believe in it as fact."
M18A9 "The fear of God is causeless."
M19A1 "Correction of a lasting nature, - and only this is true correction, - cannot be made until the teacher of God has ceased to confuse interpretation with fact, or illusion with truth."
M19A2 "God's teachers' major lesson is to learn how to react to magic thoughts wholly without anger."
M19A2 "Through them, the Holy Spirit can now speak of the reality of the Son of God."
M19A2 "Now He can remind the world of sinlessness, the one unchanged, unchangeable condition of all that God created."
M19A2 "Now He can speak the Word of God to listening ears, and bring Christ's vision to eyes that see."
M19A2 "And now is guilt forgiven, overlooked completely in His sight and in God's Word."
M19A3 "Reality is blotted out as this insane belief is taken as replacement for God's Word."
M19A3 "God reigns forever, and His laws alone prevail upon you and upon the world."
M19A4 "In order to heal, it thus becomes essential for the teacher of God to let all his own mistakes be corrected."
M19A4 "The sole responsibility of God's teacher is to accept the Atonement for himself."
M19A4 "When this has been accomplished, the teacher of God becomes a miracle worker by definition."
M20A1 "If God's Son were fairly judged, there would be no need for salvation."
M20A4 "Salvation is God's justice."
M20A4 "God's Judgment is His justice."
M20A4 "Onto this, - a judgment wholly lacking in condemnation; an evaluation based entirely on love, - you have projected your injustice, giving God the lens of warped perception through which you look."
M20A5 "Pray for God's justice, and do not confuse His mercy with your own insanity."
M20A5 "God's justice points to Heaven just because it is entirely impartial."
M20A5 "The peace of God descends on all the world, and we can see."
M21A2 "First, how can the peace of God be recognized?"
M21A2 "God's peace is recognized at first by just one thing; in every way it is totally unlike all previous experiences."
M21A3 "God's peace can never come where anger is, for anger must deny that peace exists."
M21A3 "Therefore, forgiveness is the necessary condition for finding the peace of God."
M21A4 "How is the peace of God retained, once it is found?"
M21A4 "Stop for a moment now and think of this: Is conflict what you want, or is God's peace the better choice?"
M21A5 "Life has no opposite, for it is God."
M21A5 "Forgive the world, and you will understand that everything which God created cannot have an end, and nothing He did not create is real."
M21A6 "What is the peace of God?"
M21A6 "Now is the mighty Will of God Himself His gift to you."
M21A6 "The Will of God is One and all there is."
M21A6 "God's peace is the condition for His Will."
M22A1 "God does not understand words, for they were made by separated minds to keep them in the illusion of separation."
M22A3 "The sleeping Son of God has but this power left to him."
M22A3 "Only the Word of God has any meaning, because it symbolizes that which has no human symbols at all."
M22A4 "Is the teacher of God then to avoid the use of words in his teaching?"
M22A4 "The teacher of God must, however, learn to use words in a new way."
M22A4 "The teacher of God accepts the words which are offered him and gives as he receives."
M22A5 "A major hindrance in this aspect of his learning is the teacher of God's fear about the validity of what he hears."
M22A5 "God's teachers have God's Word behind their symbols."
M23A1 "Atonement is the Word of God."
M23A1 "The teacher of God has taken accepting the Atonement for himself as his only function."
M23A2 "The progress of the teacher of God may be slow or rapid, depending on whether he recognizes the Atonement's inclusiveness or for a time excludes some problem areas from it."
M23A2 "The teacher of God may have accepted the function God has given him long before he has learned all that his acceptance holds out to him."
M23A2 "And having done what was required, would God withhold the rest?"
M23A3 "That forgiveness is healing needs to be understood, if the teacher of God is to make progress."
M23A3 "A body that can order a mind to do as it sees fit could merely take the place of God and prove salvation is impossible."
M23A4 "Nor is it at this level that the teacher of God calls forth the miracle of healing."
M23A4 "Healing is the result of the recognition, by God's teacher, of Who it is that is in need of healing."
M23A4 "It is true of all things that God created."
M23A5 "When a teacher of God fails to heal, it is because he has forgotten Who he is."
M23A5 "Step back now, teacher of God."
M23A6 "Not to believe this is to be unfair to God, and thus unfaithful to Him."
M23A6 "A sick person perceives himself as separate from God."
M23A7 "Who can limit the power of God Himself?"
M23A7 "Who then can say who can be healed of what, and what must remain beyond God's power to forgive?"
M23A7 "It is not up to God's teachers to set limits upon Him, because it is not up to them to judge His Son."
M23A7 "Yet this will not be understood until God's teacher recognizes that they are the same mistake."
M23A7 "Herein does he receive Atonement, for he withdraws his judgment from the Son of God, accepting him as God created him."
M23A7 "No longer does he stand apart from God, determining where healing should be given and where it should be withheld."
M23A7 "Now can he say with God, "This is my beloved Son, created perfect and forever so.""
M24A1 "God's gifts can rarely be received directly."
M24A1 "Even the most advanced of God's teachers will give way to temptation in this world."
M24A2 "He has become the risen Son of God."
M24A2 "He has recognized himself as God created him, and in so doing he has recognized all living things as part of him."
M24A2 "There is now no limit on his power, because it is the Power of God."
M24A2 "So has his name become the Name of God, for he no longer sees himself as separate from Him."
M24A3 "It means that in remembering Jesus you are remembering God."
M24A3 "Can God fail His Son?"
M24A3 "And can one who is one with God be unlike Him?"
M24A4 "It becomes the shining symbol for the Word of God, so close to What it stands for that the little space between the two is lost the moment that the Name is called to mind."
M24A4 "Remembering His name is to give thanks for all the gifts that God has given you."
M24A4 "And gratitude to God becomes the way in which He is remembered, for love cannot be far behind a grateful heart and thankful mind."
M24A4 "God enters easily, for these are the true conditions for your coming home."
M24A6 "No-one who has become a true and dedicated teacher of God forgets his brothers."
M24A7 "Would God leave anyone without a very present help in time of trouble; a Savior who can symbolize Himself?"
M24A7 "In him you find God's Answer."
M25A3 "A teacher of God should be as helpful to those who believe in it as to those who do not."
M25A4 "The teacher of God is therefore wise to step away from all such questions, for he has much to teach and learn apart from them."
M25A5 "Does this mean that the teacher of God should not believe in reincarnation himself, or discuss it with others who do?"
M25A6 "No teaching that does not lead to this is of concern to God's teachers."
M26A3 "Nor does their value lie in proving anything; achievements from the past, unusual attunement with the "unseen," or special favors from God."
M26A3 "God gives no special favors, and no-one has any powers that are not available to everyone."
M27A1 "God indeed can be reached directly, for there is no distance between Him and His Son."
M27A1 "Here then is the role of God's teachers."
M27A1 "But in their joining is the Power of God."
M27A2 "There are those who have reached God directly, retaining no trace of worldly limits and remembering their own Identity perfectly."
M27A2 "And meanwhile, they give all their gifts to the teachers of God who look to them for help, asking all things in Their Name and in no other."
M27A3 "Sometimes a teacher of God may have a brief experience of direct union with God."
M27A3 "If God were reached directly in sustained awareness, the body would not be long maintained."
M27A3 "And they need helpers who are still in bondage and still asleep, so that by their awakening can God's Voice be heard."
M27A4 "God takes you where you are and welcomes you."
M28A1 "The cyclical, the changing and unsure; the undependable and the unsteady, waxing and waning in a certain way upon a certain path, - all this is taken as the Will of God."
M28A2 "In this perception of the universe as God created it, it would not be possible to think of Him as loving."
M28A2 "Who loves such a god knows not of love, because he has denied that life is real."
M28A3 "Death is the symbol of the fear of God."
M28A3 "The grimness of the symbol is enough to show it cannot co-exist with God."
M28A3 "It holds an image of the Son of God in which he is "laid to rest" in devastation's arms, where worms await to greet him and to last a little while by his destruction."
M28A3 "God is insane, and fear alone is real."
M28A4 "The curious belief that there is part of dying things that may go on apart from what will die does not proclaim a loving God, nor re-establish any grounds for trust."
M28A4 "There is either a god of fear or One of Love."
M28A4 "Not one can be acceptable to God's teachers, because not one could be acceptable to God."
M28A5 "The "reality" of death is firmly rooted in the belief that God's Son is a body."
M28A5 "And if God created bodies, death would indeed be real."
M28A5 "But God would not be loving."
M28A5 "Death is indeed the death of God, if He is Love."
M28A6 "But what is born of God and still can die?"
M28A6 "God is, and in Him all created things must be eternal."
M28A7 "Teacher of God, your one assignment could be stated thus: Accept no compromise in which death plays a part."
M28A7 "Nothing but this; the realization that the Son of God is guiltless now and forever."
M29A1 "It is the recognition of the gifts of God."
M29A1 "It is the invitation to God to take His final step."
M29A2 "Idols have disappeared, and the remembrance of God shines unimpeded across the world."
M29A3 "Nothing is left to contradict the Word of God."
M29A4 "The Son of God is free."
M29A4 "And we, God's children, rise up from the dust and look upon our perfect sinlessness."
M29A5 "As God created us so will we be forever and forever, and we wish for nothing but His Will to be our own."
M29A6 "God's teachers have the goal of wakening the minds of those asleep, and seeing there the vision of Christ's face to take the place of what they dream."
M29A6 "And in His final judgment is restored the truth about the holy Son of God."
M29A6 "He is redeemed, for he has heard God's Word and understood Its meaning."
M29A6 "He is free because he let God's Voice proclaim the truth."
M29A6 "And all he sought before to crucify are resurrected with him, by his side as he prepares with them to meet his God."
M30A2 "Surely no teacher of God has come this far without realizing that."
M30A4 "As God created you, you have all power."
M30A5 "Yet to accept the power given him by God is but to acknowledge his Creator and accept His gifts."
M30A5 "Prepare for this each morning, remember God when you can throughout the day, ask the Holy Spirit's help when it is feasible to do so, and thank Him for His guidance at night."
M30A6 "For God has given Him the power to translate your prayers of the heart into His language."
M30A6 "God would be cruel if He let your words replace His Own."
M30A7 "God does not wait, for waiting implies time and He is timeless."
M30A7 "God knows but His Son, and as he was created so he is."
M30A8 "God turns to you for help to save the world."
M30A8 "Teacher of God, His thanks He offers you, And all the world stands silent in the grace You bring from Him."
M30A8 "I give thanks for you, And join your efforts on behalf of God, Knowing they are on my behalf as well And for all those who walk to God with me."
U2A1 "When the term is capitalized it refers to God or Christ (i.e.,"
U2A1 "the Mind of God or the Mind of Christ)."
U2A1 "Spirit is the Thought of God which He created like Himself."
U2A1 "The unified Spirit is God's one Son, or Christ."
U2A2 "In this world, because the mind is split, the Sons of God appear to be separate."
U2A3 "Spirit is the part that is still in contact with God through the Holy Spirit, Who abides in this part but sees the other part as well."
U2A3 "It would, however, be an equivalent of "spirit," with the understanding that, being of God, it is eternal and was never born."
U2A4 "Spirit retains the potential for creating, but its Will which is God's, seems to be imprisoned while the mind is not unified."
U2A4 "Creation continues unabated because that is the Will of God."
U2A5 "This is the final vision, the last perception, the condition in which God takes the final step Himself."
U2A5 "Therefore it is not the ONE-MINDEDNESS of the Christ Mind, Whose Will is One with God's."
U3A2 "How could God's Son as He created him abide in form or in a world of form?"
U3A6 "Where there was crucifixion stands God's Son."
U3A9 "Your questions have no answer, being made to still God's Voice, which asks of everyone one question only: "Are you ready yet to help Me save the world?""
U4A1 "Forgiveness is for God and toward God but not of Him."
U4A2 "This makes God appear to be an enemy instead of what He really is."
U4A3 "God knows what His Son needs before he asks."
U4A4 "THE FACE OF CHRIST has to be seen before the memory of God can return."
U4A4 "And this we leave to God."
U4A6 "God's Will is all there is."
U4A6 "What remains is peace eternal and the Will of God."
U4A7 "But Will is constant, as the gift of God."
U4A7 "It is the gift of God to save His Son."
U4A8 "God IS NOT SEEN BUT ONLY UNDERSTOOD."
U5A1 "God did not create it, for what He creates must be eternal as Himself."
U5A2 "While everything that God created is forever without sin and therefore is forever without guilt."
U5A6 "God has come to claim His Own."
U5A7 "And now God's KNOWLEDGE, changeless, certain, pure and wholly understandable, enters its Kingdom."
U5A7 "And gone are bodies in the blazing light upon the altar to the Son of God."
U5A7 "God knows it is His Own, as it is his."
U5A7 "For where God's memory has come at last there is no journey, no belief in sin, no walls, no bodies, and the grim appeal of guilt and death is there snuffed out forever."
U5A8 "Oh my brothers, if you only knew the peace that will envelop you and hold you safe and pure and lovely in the Mind of God, you could but rush to meet Him where His altar is."
U6A1 "But there is need for help beyond yourself as you are circumscribed by false beliefs about your Identity, Which God alone established in reality."
U6A1 "Beyond each one there is a Thought of God, and this will never change."
U6A1 "God does not help because He knows no need."
U6A1 "Thank God for them for they will lead you home."
U6A2 "The Name of Jesus is the Name of one who was a man but saw the face of Christ in all his brothers and remembered God."
U6A2 "So he became identified with Christ, a man no longer, but at one with God."
U6A3 "In his complete identification with the Christ--the perfect Son of God, His one creation and His happiness, forever like Himself and One with Him - Jesus became what all of us must be."
U6A3 "He leads us back to God because he saw the road before him, and he followed it."
U6A3 "He offered us all a final demonstration that it is impossible to kill God's Son; nor can his life in any way be changed by sin and evil, malice, fear or death."
U6A5 "He will remain with you to lead you from the hell you made to God."
U6A5 "For he will set your mind at rest at last and carry it with you unto your God."
U6A6 "Is he God's only Helper?"
U6A6 "But Jesus is for you the bearer of Christ's single message of the Love of God."
U6A6 "Yet he would help you yet a little more if you will share your pains and joys with him, and leave them both to find the peace of God."
U6A6 "Yet still it is his lesson most of all that he would have you learn, and it is this: "There is no death because the Son of God is like his Father."
U6A6 "Forget your dreams of sin and guilt, and come with me instead to share the resurrection of God's Son."
U7A1 "Jesus is the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, Whom he called down upon the earth after he ascended into Heaven, or became completely identified with the Christ, the Son of God as He created Him."
U7A1 "His is the Voice for God, and has therefore taken form."
U7A1 "This form is not His reality, which God alone knows along with Christ, His real Son, Who is part of Him."
U7A3 "The Holy Spirit is described as the remaining communication link between God and His separated sons."
U7A3 "He never forgets the Son of God."
U7A3 "And He brings the Love of your Father to you in an eternal shining that will never be obliterated because God has put it there."
U7A4 "He speaks for God and also for you, being joined with both."
U7A4 "He seems to be a Voice, for in that form He speaks God's Word to you."
U7A5 "Alone he cannot be the Helper of God's Son for he alone is functionless."
U7A5 "For in its place the hymn to God is heard a little while."
U7A5 "And then the Voice is gone, no longer to take form but to return to the eternal Formlessness of God."
U8A1 "No-one can fail to do what God appointed him to do."
U8A1 "Behind each one there is reality and there is God."
U8A1 "The end IS sure and guaranteed by God."
U8A4 "Look up and find your certain destiny the world would hide but God would have you see."
U8A5 "For God is here, and with Him all our brothers."
U8A6 "The morning star of this new day looks on a different world where God is welcomed and His Son with Him."
U8A6 "The Son is still, and in the peace that God has given him enters his home and is at peace at last."
P2A1 "God has given everyone a Teacher Whose wisdom and help far exceed whatever contributions an earthly therapist can provide."
P2A2 "What higher goal could there be for anyone than to learn to call upon God and hear His Answer?"
P2A2 "And what more transcendent aim can there be than to recall the Way, the Truth and the Life, and to remember God?"
P2A5 "The patient need not think of truth as God in order to make progress in salvation."
P2A5 "By whatever routes He chooses, all psychotherapy leads to God in the end."
P3A3 "The self he sees is his god, and he seeks only to serve it better."
P3B4 "Ideally, psychotherapy is a series of holy encounters in which brothers meet to bless each other and to receive the peace of God."
P3B4 "The therapist is only a somewhat more specialized Teacher of God."
P3C1 "To be a Teacher of God, it is not necessary to be religious or even to believe in God to any recognizable extent."
P3C3 "No-one who learns to forgive can fail to remember God."
P3C3 "All blocks to the remembrance of God are forms of unforgiveness, and nothing else."
P3C4 "Yet it is not the awareness of God that constitutes a reasonable goal for psychotherapy."
P3C4 "It would be unfair indeed if belief in God were necessary to psychotherapeutic success."
P3C4 "Nor is belief in God a really meaningful concept, for God can be but known."
P3C4 "Belief implies that unbelief is possible, but knowledge of God has no true opposite."
P3C4 "Not to know God is to have no knowledge, and it is to this that all unforgiveness leads."
P3C5 "Some forms of religion have nothing to do with God, and some forms of psychotherapy have nothing to do with healing."
P3C5 "Yet if pupil and teacher join in sharing one goal, God will enter into their relationship because He has been invited to come in."
P3C5 "In the same way, a union of purpose between patient and therapist restores the place of God to ascendance, first through Christ's vision and then through the memory of God Himself."
P3C6 "If healing is an invitation to God to enter into His Kingdom, what difference does it make how the invitation is written?"
P3C6 "God comes to those who would restore His world, for they have found the way to call to Him."
P3C7 "Perhaps the teacher does not think of God as part of teaching."
P3C7 "Perhaps the psychotherapist does not understand that healing comes from God."
P3C7 "They can succeed where many who believe they have found God will fail."
P3D4 "In a sense, the egoless psychotherapist is an abstraction that stands at the end of the process of healing, too advanced to believe in sickness and too near to God to keep his feet on earth."
P3E1 "It is a judgment on the Son of God, and judgment is a mental activity."
P3E2 "Once God's Son is seen as guilty, illness becomes inevitable."
P3E4 "It is as if God were the devil and must be found in evil."
P3E5 "And who can understand this without the Word of God, given by Him to the Holy Spirit as His gift to you?"
P3E8 "This is a mockery so alien to God that it must be forever inconceivable."
P3F3 "For God Himself holds out his brother as his Savior from the world."
P3F4 "And two come very close to God in this attempt, however limited, however lacking in sincerity."
P3F4 "Where two have joined for healing, God is there."
P3F5 "What he asks is asked by God through him."
P3F5 "And what we do for him becomes the gift we give to God."
P3F5 "The sacred calling of God's holy Son for help in his perceived distress can be but answered by his Father."
P3F5 "This holy interaction is the plan of God Himself, by which His Son is saved."
P3F6 "And now God's promises are kept by Him."
P3F7 "Somewhere all gifts of God must be received."
P3F7 "And as we see the sinlessness in him come shining through the veil of guilt that shrouds the Son of God, we will behold in him the Face of Christ, and understand that it is but our own."
P3F8 "Let us stand silently before God's Will, and do what It has chosen that we do."
P3F8 "It will be God to Whom you answer, for you called on Him."
P3F8 "Holy is healing, for the Son of God returns to Heaven through its kind embrace."
P3F8 "For healing tells him, in the Voice of God, that all his sins have been forgiven him."
P3G1 ""God may not enter here" the sick repeat, over and over, while they mourn their loss and yet rejoice in it."
P3H1 "God does not know of separation."
P3H1 "God comes to him who calls, and in Him he recognizes Himself."
P3H4 "For this, one thing and one thing only is required: The therapist in no way confuses himself with God."
P3H4 "This confusion is rarely if ever in awareness, or the unhealed healer would instantly become a Teacher of God, devoting his life to the function of true healing."
P3H6 "Yet it is as insane not to accept a function God has given you as to invent one He has not."
P3H6 "Think what this means; he has the gifts of God Himself to give away."
P3H6 "His patients are God's saints, who call upon his sanctity to make it theirs."
P3H7 "The insane, thinking they are God, are not afraid to offer weakness to the Son of God."
P3H7 "What answer can he give to one who seems to be a stranger; alien to the truth and poor in wisdom, without the god who must be given him?"
P3H7 "Behold your God in him, for what you see will be your Answer."
P3H9 "But if you fail in that, you have denied that God created you, and so you will not know you are His Son."
P3H9 "Oh let your patient in, for he has come to you from God."
P4A1 "There are no errors in God's plan."
P4A1 "To demand sacrifice of yourself is to demand a sacrifice of God, and He knows nothing of sacrifice."
P4A2 "Would God send His Son to you and not be sure you recognize his needs?"
P4A2 "Think what God is telling you; He needs your voice to speak for Him."
P4A2 "Would you rather choose who would be god, or hear the Voice of Him Who is God in you?"
P4A3 "Your patients need not be physically present for you to serve them in the Name of God."
P4A3 "This may be hard to remember, but God will not have His gifts to you limited to the few you actually see."
P4A4 "A holy therapist, an advanced Teacher of God, never forgets one thing; he did not make the curriculum of salvation, nor did he establish his part in it."
P4A4 "They come bearing God."
P4A4 "Let him not betray the Son of God."
P4B4 "God is said to have looked on all He created and pronounced it good."
P4B4 "Yet it is the means of return; the way God chose for the return of His Son."
P4B7 "They are the Saints of God."
P4B10 "The defenseless therapist has the strength of God with him, but the defensive therapist has lost sight of the Source of his salvation."
P4B10 "Because it is the Will of God that he take his place in the plan for salvation."
P4B10 "Because it is the Will of God that his patients be helped to join with him there."
P4B10 "Yet it can be but an illusion, because time does not exist and the Will of God has always been exactly as it is."
P4C1 "No-one can pay for therapy, for healing is of God and He asks for nothing."
P4C2 "To give money where God's plan allots it has no cost."
P4C3 "For if it does, it merely crucifies God's Son again."
P4C4 "It is promised him, and guaranteed by God."
P4C5 "This is the law of God, and not of the world."
P4C5 "So it is with God's healers."
P4C5 "But they will lose this understanding unless they remember that all they have comes only from God."
P4C5 "Where God's Son turns against himself, he can look only upon darkness."
P4C6 "Whatever their purpose may have been before the Holy Spirit entered them, they are always His potential temple; the resting place of Christ and home of God Himself."
P4C7 "How much is lost by throwing God away?"
P4C8 "Remember the plan of God for the restoration of joy and peace."
P4C8 "And then God sent His Son to give it to you."
S1A1 "Prayer is the greatest gift with which God blessed His Son at his creation."
S1A1 "God gives thanks to His extension in His Son."
S1A2 "What God created one must recognize its oneness, and rejoice that what illusions seemed to separate is one forever in the Mind of God."
S1A2 "Prayer now must be the means by which God's Son leaves separate goals and separate interests by, and turns in holy gladness to the truth of union in his Father and himself."
S1A3 "Lay down your dreams, you holy Son of God, and rising up as God created you, dispense with idols and remember Him."
S1A3 "It is God's gift to you."
S1A4 "Asking is holy, and it is holy because it is a way of reaching God."
S1A5 "This does not mean that you cannot get messages for another, if it is God Who chooses this way of reaching him."
S1A6 "Asking is the way to God because it offers us His Will as He would have us hear it."
S1A7 "God does not use words and does not answer in words."
S1A7 "Yet God has answered, and His Answer will reach you when you are ready."
S1A8 "God's Voice is silent and speaks in silence."
S1A9 "The only real request is for God's Answer."
S1A9 "Trust requires faith that God understands, knows, and will answer."
S1B1 "Prayer is a way offered by the Holy Spirit to reach God."
S1B1 "It is impossible to pray for idols and hope to reach God."
S1B2 "The form of the answer, if given by God through His Voice, will suit your need as you see it."
S1B4 "God answers only for eternity."
S1B5 "That nothingness becomes the altar of God."
S1B6 "Help in prayer does not mean that another mediates between you and God."
S1B6 "One who has realized the goodness of God prays without fear."
S1C1 "But it does change in form, and grows with learning until it reaches its formless state, and fuses into total communication with God."
S1C1 "In its asking form it need not, and often does not, make appeal to God, or even involve belief in Him."
S1C2 "The prayer, or asking-out-of-need, always involves feelings of weakness and inadequacy, and could never be made by a Son of God who knows Who he is."
S1C3 "Here, the asking may be addressed to God in honest belief, though not yet with understanding."
S1C5 "And now it has become holy, for it acknowledges the Son of God as he was created."
S1C8 "Now, without needs of any kind, and clad forever in the pure sinlessness which is the gift of God to you, His Son, prayer can again become what it was meant to be."
S1C8 "And for this giving God Himself gives thanks."
S1C9 "God is the goal of every prayer, giving it timelessness instead of end."
S1C9 "And then all things will be transformed together, and returned unblemished into the Mind of God."
S1C10 "The stages necessary to its attainment, however, need to be understood, if peace is to be restored to the Son of God, who lives now with the illusion of death and the fear of God."
S1D1 "For this the means is prayer, of rising power and with ascending goals, until it reaches even up to God."
S1D2 "They call upon a vengeful god, and it is he who seems to answer them."
S1D6 "He is a Son of God, along with you."
S1D7 "Yet these things, too, are used for goals that substitute for God, and therefore distort the purpose of prayer."
S1D7 "The goal of God is lost in the quest for lesser goals of any kind, and prayer becomes requests for enemies."
S1D7 "All other goals are at the cost of God."
S1E2 "Even the joining, then, is not enough, if those who pray together do not ask, before all else, what is the Will of God."
S1E4 "Prayer can bring the peace of God."
S1F1 "Let it but leave the ground where it begins to rise to God, and true humility will come at last to grace the mind that thought it was alone and stood against the world."
S1F2 "The truly humble have no goal but God because they need no idols, and defense no longer has a purpose."
S1F2 "It does not hide in shame because it is content with what it is, knowing creation is the Will of God."
S1F2 "Its selflessness is Self, and this it sees in every meeting, where it gladly joins with every Son of God, whose purity it recognizes that it shares with him."
S1F2 "Humility has taught you how to understand your glory as God's Son, and recognize the arrogance of sin."
S2A1 "Behold the greatest help that God ordained to be with you until you reach to Him."
S2B1 "It has, in fact, become a scourge; a curse where it was meant to bless, a cruel mockery of grace, a parody upon the holy peace of God."
S2B2 "God's mercy has become a twisted knife that would destroy the holy Son He loves."
S2B3 "Then learn that God has given you a means by which you can return to Him in peace."
S2B3 "How otherwise can prayer return to God?"
S2B3 "For as you see the Son you see yourself, and as you see yourself is God to you."
S2B6 "God has given all His Sons a remedy for all illusions that they think they see."
S2B7 "God's mercy would remove this withering and poisoned thinking from your holy mind."
S2B8 "God calls on you to save His Son from death by offering the love of Christ to him."
S2B8 "This is your need, and God Himself holds out this gift to you."
S2B8 "And thus is prayer restored to formlessness, beyond all limits into timelessness, with nothing of the past to hold it back from re-uniting with the ceaseless song that all creation sings unto its God."
S2B9 "There can be no trace of it remaining, if the plan that God established for returning be achieved at last, and learning be complete."
S2C1 "Yet all the forms that it may take have but one goal; their purpose is to separate and make what God created equal, different."
S2C2 "And who can tell another he is steeped in sin, and yet perceive him as the Son of God?"
S2C3 "Now he merely says that here is one whose sinfulness he shares, since both have been unworthy and deserve the retribution of the wrath of God."
S2C3 "It is not love for God's creation and the holiness that is His gift forever."
S2C4 "Here the goal is to separate from God the Son He loves, and keep him from his Source."
S2C6 "God gives and does not ask for recompense."
S2C6 "For who would try to strike a bargain with the Son of God, and thank his Father for his holiness?"
S2C7 "Within the world of opposites there is a way to use forgiveness for the goal of God, and find the peace He offers you."
S2C8 "You do not want to be afraid of God."
S2C8 "You want to see the sunlight and the glow of Heaven shining on the face of earth, redeemed from sin and in the Love of God."
S2C8 "Your wings are free, and prayer will lift you up and bring you home where God would have you be."
S2D1 "Would God deceive you?"
S2D1 "He gives His Teacher to whoever asks, and seeks to understand the Will of God."
S2D2 "You Child of God, the gifts of God are yours, not by your plans but by His holy Will."
S2D4 "God did not choose this sorry path for you."
S2D4 "What you have chosen still can be undone, for prayer is merciful and God is just."
S2D4 "God's Will is truth, and you are one with Him in Will and purpose."
S2D5 "But let it not be you who sets the form in which forgiveness comes to save God's Son."
S2D7 "It is to God you turn to hear what you should do."
S2D7 "Behold your brother there beyond the door; the Son of God as He created him."
S3B1 "It is external proof of inner "sin," and witnesses to unforgiving thoughts that injure and would hurt the Son of God."
S3B2 "The body's source is unforgiveness of the Son of God."
S3B3 "Nothing but that; the sign of judgment made by brother upon brother, and the Son of God upon himself."
S3B4 "What he has done now must God's Son undo."
S3C1 "As prayer within the world can ask amiss and seeming charity forgive to kill, so healing can be false as well as true; a witness to the power of the world or to the everlasting Love of God."
S3C3 "This is what death should be; a quiet choice, made joyfully and with a sense of peace, because the body has been kindly used to help the Son of God along the way he goes to God."
S3C4 "For Christ is clearer now; His vision more sustained in us; His Voice, the Word of God, more certainly our own."
S3C7 "It can be held at bay a little while, and there can be brief respite as it waits to take its vengeance on the Son of God."
S3C7 "Yet it cannot be overcome until all faith in it has been laid by, and placed upon God's substitute for evil dreams; a world in which there is no veil of sin to keep it dark and comfortless."
S3C7 "At last the gate of Heaven opens and God's Son is free to enter in the home that stands ready to welcome him, and was prepared before time was and still but waits for him."
S3D1 "And here the meaning of true healing has been lost, and idols have arisen to obscure the unity that is the Son of God."
S3D5 "Healers there are, for they are Sons of God who recognize their Source, and understand that all their Source creates is one with them."
S3D5 "And in that place is written now the holy Word of God."
S3D5 "Nothing else can heal as God established healing."
S3D6 "God's Voice alone can tell you how to heal."
S3D6 "There is no fear in one who has been truly healed, for love has entered now where idols used to stand, and fear has given way at last to God."
S3E1 "Bringers of peace - the Holy Spirit's voice, through whom He speaks for God, Whose Voice He is - such are God's healers."
S3E1 "They have no gifts but those they have from God."
S3E1 "Their healing has restored their wholeness so they can forgive, and join the song of prayer in which the healed sing of their union and their thanks to God."
S3E3 "God thanks His healers, for He knows the Cause of healing is Himself, His Love, His Son, restored as His completion and returned to share with Him creation's holy joy."
S3E3 "Do not forget the gratitude of God."
S3E3 "Do not forget forgiveness of God's Son."
S3E4 "Your prayer has risen up and called to God, Who hears and answers."
S3E4 "This level cannot be attained until there is no hatred in your heart, and no desire to attack the Son of God."
S3E4 "Never forget this; it is you who are God's Son, and as you choose to be to him so are you to yourself, and God to you."
S3E5 "Nor will your judgment fail to reach to God, for you will give the role to Him you see in His creation."
S3E7 "My arms are open to the Son I love, who does not understand that he is healed, and that his prayer has never ceased to sing his joyful thanks in unison with all creation, in the holiness of God."
S3E9 "See the shadows fade away in gentleness; the thorns fall softly from the bleeding brow of him who is the holy Son of God."
G1A1 "For here is nothingness, where neither birth nor death is real, nor any form in the misshapen mind that spawned it has any meaning in the Mind of God."
G1A3 "And you will think that God has ceased to care for you who have betrayed the Son He loves, and chosen fear and guilt to be their friends."
G1A4 "Does God deceive or does the world?"
G1A5 "There is no cost for any gift that comes to you from God."
G1A6 "Each one contains the whole of fear, the opposite of love, (in all its ways), the hell that hides the memory of God, the crucifixion of His holy Son."
G1A7 "The tiniest of dreams, the smallest wish for values of the world is large enough to stand between you and the sweet release that God would offer you."
G1A7 "But be sure of this and do not let it slip away: What God has joined is one."
G1A7 "And one as well is everything that fear has made to be the great deceiver and the substitute for God's creation."
G1A7 "And everything that God has promised you will never fail in anything."
G1A8 "An unremembered world will leave no trace behind its going, when God's gifts have been accepted as the only thing you want."
G1A8 "Darkness cannot conceal the gifts of God unless you want it so."
G1A9 "How dear are you to God, Who asks but that you walk with me and bring His light into a sickened world which fear has drained of love and life and hope."
G1A9 "When you have seen with me but once, you would no longer value any fearful thing at cost of glory and the peace of God."
G1A10 "Come now to me and we will go to God."
G1A10 "But when we come together there can be no way in which the Word of God can fail."
G2A1 "How can you change these little, cruel offerings for those that Heaven gives and God would have you keep?"
G2A1 "Open your hands, and give all things to me that you have held against your holiness and kept as slander on the Son of God."
G2A2 "I take them from you gladly, laying them beside the gifts of God that He has placed upon the altar to His Son."
