T26E3 "Who could fear love, and stand upon the ground where sin has left a place for Heaven's altar to rise and tower far above the world, and reach beyond the universe to touch the heart of ALL creation?"
T26E3 "What IS Heaven, but a song of gratitude and love and praise, by everything created, to the Source of its creation?"
T26E3 "For here does every light of heaven come, to be rekindled and increased in joy."
T26E4 "Forgiveness brings no little miracles to lay before the gate of Heaven."
T26E4 "And YOU will join the lights of Heaven there, and sing their song of gratitude and praise."
T26E5 "For no-one hears the song of Heaven, and remains without a voice that adds its power to the song, and makes it sweeter still."
T26E5 "This tiny spot of sin that stands between you still is holding back the happy opening of Heaven's gate."
T26E5 "How LITTLE is the hindrance which withholds the wealth of Heaven from you."
T26E5 "And how GREAT will be the joy in Heaven when you join the mighty chorus to the Love of God."
T26F1 "All learning is a help or hindrance to the gate of Heaven."
T26F1 "For never will another road be made, except the way to Heaven."
T26F1 "You but choose whether to go TOWARD Heaven, or away to nowhere."
T26F2 "Think not the way to Heaven's gate is difficult at all."
T26F2 "Nothing you undertake with certain purpose and high resolve and happy confidence, holding each other's hand and keeping step to Heaven's song, is difficult to do."
T26F4 "The tiny instant you would keep, and make eternal, passed away in Heaven too soon for anything to notice it had come."
T26F5 "So VERY long ago, for such a tiny interval of time that not one note in Heaven's song was missed."
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?"
T26F12 "You HAVE gone on, and reached the world that lies at Heaven's gate."
T26G2 "But God has given him a better Friend, in whom all power in earth and Heaven rests."
T26H5 "If this were so, would Heaven be opposed by its own opposite, as real as it."
T26H8 "Yet is this wish in line with Heaven's state, and not in OPPOSITION to God's Will."
T26H8 "Although it falls far short of giving you your full inheritance, it DOES remove the obstacles which YOU have placed between the Heaven where you are, and RECOGNITION of where and what you are."
T26H9 "A LITTLE sigh that speaks for Heaven as a preference to this world which death and desolation seem to rule."
T26H9 "In joyous answer will creation rise within you, to REPLACE the world you see with Heaven, wholly perfect and complete."
T26H14 "Heaven is shining on the Son of God."
T26J1 "Look with loving eyes on him who carries Christ within him, that you may behold His glory, and rejoice that Heaven is NOT separate from you."
T26J3 "And now you stand on ground so holy Heaven leans to join with it, and make it like Itself."
T26J4 "What hatred claimed is given up to love, and freedom lights up every living thing and lifts it into Heaven, where the lights grow ever brighter as each one comes home."
T26J4 "And Heaven's joy has been increased because what is its own has been restored to it."
T26J5 "Heaven is grateful for this gift of what has been withheld so long."
T26J5 "What has been blocked is opened; what was held APART from light is given up that light may shine on it, and leave no space nor distance lingering between the light of Heaven and the world."
T26J5 "There is no place in Heaven holier."
T26J6 "What hatred has released to love becomes the brightest light in Heaven's radiance."
T26J6 "And all the lights in Heaven brighter grow in gratitude for what has been restored."
T26J6 "And shall the Lord of Heaven and His Son give LESS in gratitude for so much MORE?"
T26K2 "And what is limited can NOT be Heaven."
T27B1 "You hold a picture of your crucifixion before his eyes, that he may see his sins are writ in Heaven in your blood and death, and go before him, closing off the gate, and damning him to hell."
T27B1 "Yet this is writ in hell and NOT in Heaven, where you are BEYOND attack, and prove his INNOCENCE."
T27B9 "Into this empty space, from which the GOAL of sin has been removed, is Heaven free to be remembered."
T27H14 "And, from THIS dream, the Lord of Heaven will Himself awaken His beloved Son."
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?"
T29C7 "There IS no change in immortality, and Heaven knows it not."
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."
T29F1 "And where They are is Heaven and is peace."
T29F2 "The changelessness of Heaven is in you, so deep within that nothing in this world but passes by, unnoticed and unseen."
T29F5 "Who would lay bloody hands on Heaven itself, and hope to find its peace?"
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."
T29H1 "Heaven cannot be found where it is not, and there can be no peace EXCEPTING there."
T29I5 "Its life and power are its believer's gift, and this is what the miracle restores to what HAS life and power worthy of the gift of Heaven and eternal peace."
T29I9 "In Heaven would the Son of God but laugh, if idols could intrude upon his peace."
T29I9 "For MORE than Heaven can you never have."
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?"
T29J1 "And in that dream was Heaven changed to hell, and God made enemy unto His Son."
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."
T29J9 "Whenever you feel fear in any form, - and you ARE fearful if you do not feel a deep content, a certainty of help, a calm assurance Heaven goes with you, - be sure you made an idol, and believe it will betray you."
T30C1 "And Heaven itself but represents your will, where everything created is for you."
T30C4 "No light of Heaven shines except for you, for it was set in Heaven by your will."
T30D8 "So high in Heaven is it set that those outside of Heaven know not it is there."
T30D8 "The sky embraces it, and softly holds it in its perfect place, which is as far from earth as earth from Heaven."
T30D10 "The Mind of Heaven's Son in Heaven is, for there the Mind of Father and of Son joined in creation which can HAVE no end."
T30F3 "Not yet is Heaven quite remembered, for the purpose of forgiveness still remains."
T30F4 "No-one outside of Heaven knows how this can be."
T30F4 "For understanding this is Heaven itself."
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."
T30F7 "And to go straight on, and quickly reach the gate of Heaven itself."
T30I2 "For that is changeless, and has no effects which anything in Heaven or on earth could ever alter."
T30I3 "And Heaven gives no answer to the prayer, nor CAN the miracle be given you to heal appearances you do not like."
T31F1 "But choose the Spirit, and all Heaven bends to touch your eyes, and bless your holy sight, that you may see the world of flesh no more, except to heal and comfort and to bless."
T31F4 "Only in arrogance could you conceive that YOU must make the way to Heaven plain."

T31G14 "There is hell or Heaven."
T31H7 "There is no place for hell within a world whose loveliness can yet be so intense and so inclusive it is but a step from there to Heaven."
T31H8 "And thus will all the vestiges of hell, the secret sins and hidden hates be gone, and all the loveliness which they concealed appear like lawns of Heaven to our sight, to lift us high above the thorny roads we travelled on before the Christ appeared."
T31H10 "I give You thanks for what my brothers are, and as each one elects to join with me, the song of thanks from earth to Heaven grows from tiny, scattered threads of melody to one inclusive chorus from a world redeemed from hell, and giving thanks to You."
W20L3 "His will is done because all power is given him in Heaven and on earth."
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."
W45L8 "Yet even with the little understanding you have already gained, you should be able to remind yourself that this is no idle game, but an exercise in holiness and an attempt to reach the Kingdom of Heaven."
W47L7 "Let go all the trivial things that churn and bubble on the surface of your mind, and reach down and below them to the Kingdom of Heaven."
W50L5 "Such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
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."
W73L4 "It is not Heaven, but the light of Heaven shines on it."
W73L6 "Forget the ego's arguments which seek to prove all this is really Heaven."
W73L8 "And end forever the insane belief that it is hell in place of Heaven that you choose."
W75L4 "We see the light, and in it we see Heaven's reflection lie across the world."
W76L9 "They would not save, but damn in Heaven's name."
W76L12 "His Voice will speak of this to us, as well as of the joys of Heaven which His laws keep limitless forever."
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."
W89L5 "I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have."
W95L15 "And Heaven looks to you in confidence that you will try today."
W98L9 "And you will have conviction then of Him Who knows the function that you have on earth as well as Heaven."
W99L3 "How could there be a meeting place at all where earth and Heaven can be reconciled within a mind where both of them exist?"
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."
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."
W110L9 "This is the key that opens up the gate of Heaven, and which lets you enter in the peace of God and His eternity."
W121L7 "Each one awaits release from hell through you, and turns to you imploringly for Heaven here and now."
W122L6 "Would you stand outside while all of Heaven waits for you within?"
W122L9 "Earnestly and gladly will we seek for it today, aware we hold the key within our hands, accepting Heaven's answer to the hell we made, but where we would remain no more."
W126L5 "Think you the Lord of Heaven would allow the world's salvation to depend on this?"
W129L8 "Today the lights of Heaven bend to you, to shine upon your eyelids as you rest beyond the world of darkness."
W130L10 "Perception is consistent with your choice, and hell or Heaven comes to you as one."
W130L11 "Yet the release of Heaven still remains within your range of choice, to take the place of everything that hell would show to you."
W131L4 "Be glad as well to learn you search for Heaven, and must find the goal you really want."
W131L5 "You will find Heaven."
W131L6 "Why wait for Heaven?"
W131L7 "Heaven remains your one alternative to this strange world you made and all its ways; its shifting patterns and uncertain goals, its painful pleasures and its tragic joys."
W131L7 "He did not make two minds, with Heaven as the glad effect of one, and earth the other's sorry outcome which is Heaven's opposite in every way."
W131L8 "How could it be His Son could be in hell when God Himself established him in Heaven?"
W131L9 "He thinks he made a hell opposing Heaven, and believes that he abides in what does not exist, while Heaven is the place he cannot find."
W131L14 "There walks with you the Spirit Heaven sent you that you might approach this door some day, and through His aid slip effortlessly past it to the light."
W131L15 "Today is set by Heaven Itself to be a time of grace for you and for the world."
W133L13 "Heaven Itself is reached by empty hands and open minds, which come with nothing to find everything and claim it as their own."
W133L14 "And then receive what waits for everyone who reaches, unencumbered, to the gate of Heaven, which swings open as he comes."
W134L10 "Forgiveness stands between illusions and the truth, between the world you see and that which lies beyond, between the hell of guilt and Heaven's gate."
W134L18 "In everything you do remember this: No one is crucified alone, and yet, No one can enter Heaven by himself."
W135L21 "Without defenses, you become a light which Heaven gratefully acknowledges to be its own."
W135L25 "Heaven asks nothing."
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 "And Heaven has not bowed to hell, nor life to death."
W138L1 "In this world Heaven is a choice, because here we believe there are alternatives to choose between."
W138L1 "If Heaven exists there must be hell as well, for contradiction is the way we make what we perceive and what we think is real."
W138L2 "It is this strange perception of the truth which makes the choice of Heaven seem to be the same as the relinquishment of hell."
W138L6 "In this insanely complicated world Heaven appears to take the form of choice, rather than merely being what it is."
W138L9 "Heaven is chosen consciously."
W138L9 "All that is veiled in shadows must be raised to understanding to be judged again, this time with Heaven's help, and all mistakes in judgment which the mind had made before are open to correction as the truth dismisses them as causeless."
W138L10 "The conscious choice of Heaven is as sure as is the ending of the fear of hell, when it is raised from its protective shield of unawareness, and is brought to light."
W138L11 "We make the choice for Heaven as we wake, and spend five minutes making sure that we have made the one decision that is sane."
W138L12 "And finally we close the day with this, acknowledging we chose but what we want: "Heaven is the decision I must make."
W149L2 " 138) "Heaven is the decision I must make.""
W151L12 "And you will see the love beyond the hate, the constancy in change, the pure in sin, and only Heaven's blessing on the world."
W151L18 "As we give thanks, the world unites with us, and happily accepts our holy thoughts, which Heaven has corrected and made pure."
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."
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."
W153L18 "In time, with practice, you will never cease to think of Him, and hear His loving Voice guiding your footsteps into quiet ways, where you will walk in true defenselessness, for you will know that Heaven goes with you."
W154L1 "Our part is cast in Heaven, not in hell."
W154L6 "There is one major difference in the role of Heaven's messengers, which sets them off from those the world appoints."
W157L1 "It is a time Heaven has set apart to shine upon, and cast a timeless light upon this day when echoes of eternity are heard."
W157L3 "Today it will be given you to feel a touch of Heaven, though you will return to paths of learning, yet you have come far enough along the way to alter time sufficiently to rise above its laws, and walk into eternity a while."
W157L6 "Yet it leaves a vision in our eyes which we can offer everyone, that he may come the sooner to the same experience in which the world is quietly forgot, and Heaven is remembered for a while."
W157L7 "As this experience increases and all goals but this become of little worth, the world to which you will return becomes a little closer to the end of time; a little more like Heaven in its ways; a little nearer its deliverance."
W157L8 "But the Holy One, the Giver of the happy dreams of life, Translator of perception into truth, the holy Guide to Heaven given you, has dreamed for you this journey, which you make and start today, with the experience, this day holds out to you to be your own."
W159L1 "Here the laws of Heaven and the world agree."
W159L3 "Christ's vision pictures Heaven, for it sees a world so like to Heaven that what God created perfect can be mirrored there."
W159L3 "The real world pictures Heaven's innocence."
W159L4 "It is the bond by which the giver and receiver are united in extension here on earth as they are one in Heaven."
W161L1 "Here is Atonement made complete, the world passed safely by and Heaven now restored."
W161L9 "This do the body's eyes behold in one whom Heaven cherishes, the angels love, and God created perfect."
W161L10 "You are not forgot in Heaven."
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."
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."
W165L4 "Deny not Heaven."
W168L4 "What now remains that Heaven be delayed an instant longer?"
W169L12 "Experience that grace provides will end in time, for grace foreshadows Heaven yet does not replace the thought of time but for a little while."
W170R58 "God would not have Heaven incomplete."
W183L3 "There is no substitute for Heaven."
W183L4 "It is His holiness that lights up Heaven, and that brings to earth the pure reflection of the light above, wherein are earth and Heaven joined as one."
W183L9 "He holds the might of Heaven in His hand and calls them friend, and gives His strength to them that they may see He would be Friend to them."
W184L8 "But what is true in earth and Heaven is beyond your naming."
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."
W185L1 "Heaven would be completely given back to full awareness, memory of God entirely restored, the resurrection of all creation fully recognized."
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?""
W186L1 "It but acknowledges the Will of God is done on earth as well as Heaven."
W186L1 "It unites all wills on earth in Heaven's plan to save the world, restoring it to Heaven's peace."
W186L14 "Forgiveness is an earthly form of love which as it is in Heaven has no form."
W187L10 "And as we look within, we see the purity of Heaven shine in our reflection of our Father's Love."
W188L1 "Why wait for Heaven?"
W189L10 "And we ask but that Your Will, Which is our own as well, be done in us and in the world, that it becomes a part of Heaven now."
W190L8 "In pain does fear appear to triumph over love, and time replace eternity and Heaven."
W190L9 "Lay down your arms and come without defense into the quiet place where Heaven's peace holds all things still at last."
W190L11 "And so again we make the only choice that ever can be made; we choose between illusions and the truth, or pain and joy, or hell and Heaven."
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."
W191L9 "You who perceive yourself as weak and frail, with futile hopes and devastated dreams, born but to die, to weep and suffer pain, hear this: All power is given you in earth and Heaven."
W191L11 "Remember this and earth and Heaven are one."
W192L2 "And who would pardon Heaven?"
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."
W193L2 "Yet it is He Who gives the means by which perception is made true and beautiful enough to let the light of Heaven shine upon it."
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?"
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."
W194L1 "So great the distance is that it encompasses, it sets you down just short of Heaven, with the goal in sight and obstacles behind."
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."
W198L6 "His Words are born in God, and come to you with Heaven's love upon them."
W198L6 "Those who hear His Words have heard the song of Heaven, for these are the words in which all will merge as one at last."
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."
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."
W200L2 "This is the final point to which each one must come at last, to lay aside all hope of finding happiness where there is none; of being saved by what can only hurt; of making peace of chaos, joy of pain and Heaven out of hell."
W200L3 "For what could be more foolish than to seek and seek and seek again for hell, when you have but to look with open eyes to find that Heaven lies before you, through a door which opens easily to welcome you?"
W200L6 "In truth it has no function and does nothing, for it is unknown in Heaven."
W200L8 "But it begins within the world perceived as different, and leading from this fresh perception to the gate of Heaven and the way beyond."
W200L9 "We go to Heaven, and the path is straight."
W200L10 "And you look up and on toward Heaven, with the body's eyes but serving for an instant longer now."
W223L2 "We are lonely here, and long for Heaven where we are at home."
W224L1 "My true identity is so secure, so lofty, sinless, glorious and great, wholly beneficent and free from guilt, that Heaven looks to It to give it light."
W226L2 "What need have I to linger in a place of vain desires and of broken dreams, when Heaven can so easily be mine?""
W227L2 "And so today we find our glad return to Heaven, which we never really left."
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."
W231L2 "To remember Him is Heaven."
W240W34 "And let Him give you peace and certainty, which you have thrown away, but Heaven has preserved for you in Him."
W241L2 "Father, Your Son, who never left, returns to Heaven and his home."
W249L1 "It is now so like to Heaven, that it quickly is transformed into the Light which it reflects."
W250W45 "Would you still hold return to Heaven back?"
W252L2 "Reveal It now to me who am Your Son, that I may waken to the truth in You, and know that Heaven is restored to me.""
W253L1 "For thus am I led past this world to my creations, children of my Will, in Heaven where my holy Self abides with them, and Him Who has created me."
W255L1 "God's Son can have no cares, and must remain forever in the peace of Heaven."
W260W54 "Though it was made to fence him into hell without escape, yet has the goal of Heaven been exchanged for the pursuit of hell."
W263L2 "And while we still remain outside the gate of Heaven, let us look on all we see through holy vision and the eyes of Christ."
W265L1 "Let no appearance of my "sins" obscure the light of Heaven, shining on the world."
W270W63 "Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home in God alone, does Christ remain at peace, within the Heaven of your holy mind."
W272L1 "My home is set in Heaven by Your Will and mine."
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."
W280W75 "The Holy Spirit is His gift, by Which the quietness of Heaven is restored to God's beloved Son."
W281L2 "My Father placed me safe in Heaven, watching over me."
W283L1 "His holiness remains the light of Heaven and the Love of God."
W283L1 "Is not the light of Heaven infinite?"
W286L1 "Your Love is Heaven, and Your Love is mine.""
W287L1 "Where would I go but Heaven?"
W292L1 "For God's Will is done in earth and Heaven."
W300L2 "But we have listened to Your Voice, and learned exactly what to do to be restored to Heaven and our true Identity."
W303L1 "Let all God's holy Thoughts surround me, and be still with me while Heaven's Son is born."
W306L1 "What but Christ's vision would I use today, when it can offer me a day in which I see a world so like to Heaven that an ancient memory returns to me?"
W310L1 "The joy that comes to me is not of days nor hours, for it comes from Heaven to Your Son."
W318L1 "In me, God's holy Son, are reconciled all parts of Heaven's plan to save the world."
W320L1 "His holy will can never be denied, because his Father shines upon his mind, and lays before it all the strength and love in earth and Heaven."
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 "And as it is in Heaven, so on earth."
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.""
W340L2 "Not one who will remain in fear, and none the Father will not gather to Himself, awake in Heaven in the Heart of Love."
W340W135 "Miracles fall like drops of healing rain from Heaven on a dry and dusty world, where starved and thirsty creatures came to die."
W342L1 "I stand before the gate of Heaven, wondering if I should enter in and be at home."
W344L1 "Let my forgiven brothers fill my store with Heaven's treasures, which alone are real."
W345L1 "Father, in Heaven it is different, for there, there are no needs."
W350W141 "I am the Heaven where His Love resides."
W350W143 "We do not seek a function that is past the gates of Heaven."
W350W145 "And as he sees the gate of Heaven stand open before him, he will enter in and disappear into the Heart of God."
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."
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."
M5B8 "This is the stage of real peace, for here is Heaven's state fully reflected."
M5B8 "From here, the way to Heaven is open and easy."
M5E2 "Who chooses hell when he perceives a way to Heaven?"
M6C4 "Seen in their proper perspective, without distortion and without fear, they re-establish Heaven."

M15A3 "It goes against all the thinking of the world, but so does Heaven."
M15A5 "To turn hell into Heaven is the function of God's teachers, for what they teach are lessons in which Heaven is reflected."
M17A10 "And for this "sacrifice" is Heaven restored to his awareness."
M17A11 "And thus the Gate of Heaven is reopened, and its light can shine again on an untroubled mind."
M20A1 "Neither justice nor injustice exists in Heaven, for error is impossible and correction meaningless."
