T6C8 "God created His Sons by extending His Thought and retaining the extensions of His Thought in His Mind."
T6C9 "But thoughts begin in the mind OF THE THINKER, from which they extend outward."
T6C9 "Because your minds are split, you can also perceive as well as think, but perception cannot escape from the basic laws of mind."
T6C9 "You perceive FROM your mind, and extend your perceptions outward."
T6C10 "This convergence SEEMS to be far in the future ONLY because your mind is NOT in perfect alignment with the idea, and therefore DOES NOT WANT IT NOW."
T6C11 "He tells you to return your whole mind to God, BECAUSE IT HAS NEVER LEFT HIM."
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."
T6C13 "He perceives ONLY what is true in YOUR mind, and extends outward to ONLY what is true in other minds."
T6C14 "The Holy Spirit projects by RECOGNIZING HIMSELF in EVERY mind, and thus perceives them as ONE."
T6C15 "The great peace of the Kingdom shines in your mind forever, but it must shine OUTWARD to make YOU aware of it."
T6C15 "No darkness abides ANYWHERE in the Kingdom, so your part is only to allow no darkness to abide in your OWN mind."
T6D1 "This is because, as we have said before, every idea begins in the mind of the thinker and extends outward."
T6D1 "Therefore, what extends FROM the mind IS STILL IN IT, and FROM what it extends IT KNOWS ITSELF."
T6D2 "Your Godlike mind can never be defiled."
T6D5 "The only REAL safety lies in projecting ONLY the Holy Spirit, because as you see His gentleness in others your own mind perceives ITSELF as totally harmless."
T6D6 "Without anxiety, the mind is wholly kind, and because it PROJECTS beneficence, it IS beneficent."
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."
T6E4 "The ego cannot hear the Holy Spirit, but it DOES feel that part of the same mind that made it is AGAINST it."
T6E5 "Perceiving something alien to itself in your MIND, the ego turns to the body, NOT the mind as its ally BECAUSE the body is not part of you."
T6E5 "The ego, which is not real, attempts to persuade the mind, which IS real, that it IS its own learning device, and that the learning device is more real than IT is."
T6E5 "No-one in his right mind could POSSIBLY believe this, and no-one in his right mind DOES believe it."
T6E12 "Fidelity to premises is a law of the mind, and everything God created is faithful to His laws."
T6F1 "Could God teach you that you had made a split mind when He knows your mind only as whole?"
T6F7 "EVERYTHING is accomplished through life, and life is of the mind and in the Mind."
T6F7 "If we share the same mind, YOU CAN OVERCOME DEATH BECAUSE I DID."
T6F9 "If the mind can heal the body, but the body cannot heal the mind, then the mind MUST BE STRONGER."
T6F9 "This is because He ALWAYS tells you that ONLY the mind is real, because only the mind CAN BE SHARED."
T6F9 "To be of one mind is meaningful, but to be of one body is meaningless."
T6F9 "By the laws of mind, then, the body IS meaningless."
T6G3 "This is because a change in motivation IS a change of mind, and this will INEVITABLY produce fundamental change BECAUSE the mind IS fundamental."
T6G4 "Therefore, the first lesson SEEMS to contain a contradiction because it is BEING LEARNED BY A CONFLICTED MIND."
T6G5 "Further, the mind of the learner projects its own split, and therefore does NOT perceive consistent minds in others, making him suspicious of THEIR motivations."
T6G6 "The fundamental change will still occur with the change of mind IN THE THINKER."
T6G7 "Helen thought he had become (quite) irrational on this point, but it was quite strongly reinforced in HIS mind, and so he wanted to teach it in his text."
T6G8 "If you identify WITH your thought system, and you cannot escape this, and if you accept two thought systems which are in COMPLETE DISagreement, peace of mind IS impossible."
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 "The Holy Spirit does not teach your mind to be critical of other minds, because He does not want you to teach your errors and LEARN THEM YOURSELVES."
T6H3 "In the mind of the THINKER, then, He IS judgmental, but only in order to unify it so IT CAN perceive WITHOUT judgment."
T6H3 "This enables the mind to TEACH without judgment and therefore learn to BE without judgment."
T6H3 "The UNdoing is necessary only in YOUR mind, so that you cannot PROJECT it."
T6H7 "If you allow yourselves to HAVE in your minds only what God put there, you are acknowledging your mind as God created it."
T6H11 "Doubts ABOUT being MUST not enter your mind, or you CANNOT know what you are with certainty."
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."
T6H12 "What you have made has thus DIVIDED YOUR WILL and given you a sick mind that MUST be healed."
T6H13 "Once YOUR mind is healed, it radiates health and thereby TEACHES healing."
T7C2 "This is an immutable law of mind in this world as well as in the Kingdom."
T7C3 "The outstanding characteristic of the laws of mind, as they operate in this world, is that by obeying them, and I assure you that you MUST obey them, you can arrive at diametrically opposed results."
T7C3 "The laws of mind govern thoughts, and you DO respond to two conflicting voices."
T7C5 "ONLY if he perceives as a MIND can he overcome this."
T7E2 "Your mind CANNOT be unified in allegiance to the ego, because the mind does NOT BELONG to it."
T7E5 "God has lit your minds Himself, and keeps your mind lit BY His light because His light is WHAT YOUR MINDS ARE."
T7E6 "The SPIRIT is not asleep in the minds of the sick, but the part of the mind that can perceive it and be glad IS."
T7E8 "It is their RESULT in a state of mind which does not know Him."
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."
T7E11 "But the strength of right perception is so great that it brings the mind INTO accord with His, because it yields to His pull which IS in all of you."
T7F2 "Since the ego CANNOT obliterate the impulse to communicate because it is also the impulse to CREATE, it can only try to teach you that the BODY can both communicate AND create, and therefore DOES NOT NEED THE MIND."
T7F2 "The ego, then, tries to teach you that the body can ACT like the mind, and therefore IS self-sufficient."
T7F3 "He recognizes no other, because he does NOT accept the ego's confusion of mind and body."
T7F3 "The body in the service of the ego can hurt other BODIES, but this CANNOT occur UNLESS the body has ALREADY been confused WITH the mind."
T7F5 "This is co-incidental, because the healer may NOT be experiencing HIMSELF as truly helpful at the time, and the belief that he IS, in the mind of ANOTHER, HELPS HIM."
T7F7 "The "fearful healer" is a contradiction in terms, and is therefore a concept that ONLY a conflicted mind could POSSIBLY perceive as meaningful."
T7F9 "That is because by changing HIS mind he has changed the most powerful device that was ever created FOR change."
T7F10 "This in no way contradicts the changelessness of mind as GOD created it."
T7F10 "This DOES place you in a position of needing to learn a lesson which SEEMS contradictory: you must learn to change your mind ABOUT your mind."
T7F11 "You are recognizing the changeless mind in your brother by perceiving (knowing) that he could NOT have changed his mind."
T7F11 "It is ONLY the Holy Spirit in him that never changes His mind."
T7F11 "But by changing your mind about HIS FOR him, you help him undo the change his ego thinks it has made in him."
T7F14 "But I do want to share my MIND with you because we ARE of one Mind, and that Mind IS ours."
T7F14 "See ONLY this Mind everywhere, because only this IS everywhere and in everything."
T7F15 "The mind WE share IS shared by all our brothers, and as we see them truly, they WILL be healed."
T7G1 "They make or create depending on whether the ego or the Holy Spirit begets or inspires them, but they WILL return to the mind of the thinker, and they WILL affect his total perception."
T7G2 "The mind that accepts attack CANNOT love."
T7G3 "The ingeniousness of the ego to preserve itself is enormous, but it stems from the power of the mind WHICH THE EGO DENIES."
T7G5 "Mind ALWAYS REproduces as it was produced."
T7G5 "Rejection is therefore the only decision which the ego could POSSIBLY encounter if the mind which made it knew ITSELF."
T7G6 "It perceives their threat as total because it senses the fact that all commitments which the mind makes ARE total."
T7G6 "Forced therefore to detach itself from you who ARE mind, it is willing to attach itself to anything ELSE."
T7G6 "It does NOT follow, however, that the mind cannot make illusions."
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 "If the mind CANNOT attack, the ego proceeds perfectly logically to the position that YOU cannot be mind."
T7G9 "The ego therefore wants to engage your mind in its OWN delusional system, because otherwise the light of YOUR understanding WILL dispel it."
T7G12 "If you dissociate your mind FROM it, you are perceiving the most powerful force in the universe of thought AS IF it were weak, because you do NOT believe YOU are part of it."
T7H1 "It has no power in ITSELF, but YOU can give it the power of YOUR mind, whose power is without limit of ANY kind."
T7H2 "Mind is too powerful to be subject to exclusion."
T7H5 "The only way to dispel illusions is to withdraw ALL investment from them, and they will HAVE no life for you because you have put them OUT OF YOUR MIND."
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."
T7I1 "Projection is a fundamental law of the mind, and therefore one which ALWAYS operates."
T7I1 "It is the law which unifies the Kingdom and keeps it in the mind of God."
T7I2 "Every mind MUST project, because that is how it lives, and every mind IS life."
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."
T7I3 "It projects conflict FROM your mind to OTHER minds, in an attempt to persuade you that you have gotten RID of it."
T7I7 "There is no way out of this, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to fragment the mind."
T7I7 "To fragment is to break into pieces, and mind CANNOT attack."
T7I7 "This is because it does not understand what the mind IS, and therefore does not understand what YOU are."
T7I7 "Yet ITS existence IS dependent on your mind, because it is a BELIEF."
T7I8 "It DOES depend on your mind, and as you made it by believing in it, so you can dispel it by withdrawing belief FROM it."

T7J5 "The Kingdom is forever extending, because it is in the Mind of God."
T7J5 "A split mind CANNOT perceive its fullness, and needs the miracle OF its wholeness to dawn upon it and heal it."

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."
T7L5 "When a mind has only light, it KNOWS only light."
T8A3 "If you DO NOT WANT THEM on the basis of LOSS OF PEACE, they will be removed from your mind FOR you."
T8B5 "But if you LISTEN to both, your mind will split on WHAT YOUR REALITY IS."
T8C6 "Can you ask the part of your mind that taught you to believe they ARE the same to teach you the DIFFERENCE?"
T8E6 "Only then will your MIND will to follow me."
T8E10 "If you want to be DIFFERENT, I will wait until you change your mind."
T8F9 "But their thought is so powerful that they can even imprison the mind of God's Son IF THEY SO CHOOSE."
T8G1 "When attack in ANY form enters your mind, you are EQUATING YOURSELF WITH A BODY."
T8G3 "This interpretation of the body will change your mind entirely about its value."
T8G3 "But if you use it ONLY to reach the minds of those who believe they ARE bodies and teach them THROUGH the body that THIS IS NOT SO, you will begin to understand the power of the mind that is in both of you."
T8G6 "Do not ALLOW him to belittle himself in YOUR mind, but give him freedom from his belief in littleness, and escape from YOURS."
T8G10 "It becomes ONLY a means by which the part of the mind which you have separated from your Soul can reach beyond its distortions and RETURN to the Soul."
T8G11 "ALL mind is whole, and the belief that part of it is physical or NOT MIND is a fragmented (or sick) interpretation."
T8G11 "Mind CANNOT be made physical, but it CAN be made manifest THROUGH the physical if it uses the body to GO BEYOND itself."
T8G11 "By reaching OUT, the mind EXTENDS itself."
T8G11 "A mind which has been blocked has allowed itself to be vulnerable to attack, because it has TURNED AGAINST ITSELF."
T8G12 "Help and healing are the normal expressions of a mind which is working THROUGH the body but not IN it."
T8G12 "If the mind believes the body is its GOAL, it WILL distort its perception OF the body, and by blocking its own extension BEYOND it will INDUCE illness by FOSTERING SEPARATION."
T8G13 "This releases the mind from the temptation to see it in many lights, and gives it over ENTIRELY to the One Light in which it can be really understood at all."
T8G14 "Learning must lead BEYOND the body to the re-establishment of the power of the mind IN it."
T8G14 "This can be accomplished ONLY if the mind EXTENDS to other minds, and does not ARREST ITSELF in its extension."
T8G14 "The arrest of the mind's extension is the cause of all illness, because ONLY EXTENSION IS THE MIND's FUNCTION."
T8G14 "Block this, and you have blocked health because you have BLOCKED THE MIND's JOY."
T8G15 "To see a body as anything EXCEPT a means of pure extension is to limit your mind and HURT YOURSELF."
T8G15 "If the body is brought under the purpose of the mind, it becomes whole because the mind's purpose IS one."
T8G16 "Attack can only be an assumed goal of the body, but the body APART from the mind HAS NO PURPOSE AT ALL."

T8I6 "This is because it believes that MIND IS DANGEROUS, and that to MAKE MINDLESS is to heal."
T8I9 "When you limit YOURSELF, we are NOT of one mind, and that IS sickness."
T8I9 "But sickness is not of the body, but OF THE MIND."
T8I9 "ALL forms of DISfunction are merely signs that the mind has split, and does not accept a UNIFIED PURPOSE."
T8J1 "Fear of the Will of God is one of the strangest beliefs that the human mind has ever made."
T8J1 "This could not possibly have occurred unless the mind was already profoundly split, making it possible for IT to be afraid of what it really is."
T8J4 "His perception of this will can make it real to YOU, because HE is in your mind, and therefore He IS your reality."
T8J4 "If, then, His perception OF your mind brings its reality TO you, He IS teaching you what you are."
T8J5 "Divided wills do not communicate because they speak for different things TO THE SAME MIND."
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."

T9D8 "A "miserable sinner" cannot be healed without magic, nor can an "unimportant mind" esteem itself without magic."
T9D9 "The light in HIS mind will therefore ANSWER the questioner, who MUST decide with God that there IS light BECAUSE HE SEES IT."
T9E8 "But this cannot mean anything to you, until you remember God's open arms, and finally know His open Mind."
T9E8 "Like Him, YOU are ALWAYS, in His Mind, and with a mind like His."
T9E8 "In your open mind are YOUR creations, in perfect communication, born of perfect understanding."
T9F3 "And this evaluation MUST be in your mind, because HE is."
T9F4 "The ego is also in your mind, because you have ACCEPTED it there."
T9G4 "Even the faintest hint of your reality literally drives the ego from your mind, because of the complete lack of investment in it."
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."
T9G10 "You are altogether irreplaceable in the Mind of God."
T9G11 "Your value is in GOD's Mind, and therefore NOT in yours alone."
T9H3 "God does not change His Mind about YOU, for He is not uncertain of HIMSELF."
T9H4 "When ANYTHING threatens your peace of mind, ask yourself "Has God changed His Mind about me?""
T9H4 "Then ACCEPT His decision, for it is indeed changeless, and refuse to change your mind about YOURSELF.-"
T9H5 "Any part of your mind that does not know this, has banished itself from knowledge, because it has NOT MET ITS CONDITIONS."
T9H9 "You will remember everything the instant you DESIRE IT WHOLLY, for if to desire wholly is to create, you will have willed away the separation, returning your mind simultaneously to your Creator and your creations."
T9I1 "Even in this world's therapy, when dissociated material is ACCEPTED, it ceases to be fearful, for the laws of mind always hold."
T9I3 "To remember is merely to restore to your mind WHAT IS ALREADY THERE."
T9I6 "If you realized the complete havoc this makes of your peace of mind, you COULD not make such an insane decision."
T9I6 "It follows, then, that you want something OTHER than peace of mind, and you have not considered what it must be."
T9I8 "God would have them released from their sickness, and returned to His Mind."
T9I8 "He is ALWAYS accepted for all, and when your mind receives Him, the remembrance of Him awakens throughout the Sonship."
T9I15 "A whole mind is not idolatrous, and does not know of conflicting laws."
T9J3 "Reality can dawn only in an unclouded mind."
T9J3 "Knowledge cannot dawn on a mind full of illusions, because truth and illusions are irreconcilable."
T9J3 "Truth is whole, and CANNOT be known by PART of a mind."
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."
T9J4 "To be out of control is to be out of REASON, and the mind DOES become unreasonable without reason."
T9J4 "By DEFINING the mind wrongly, you perceive it as FUNCTIONING wrongly."
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."

T10B8 "God has given you a place in His Mind which is yours forever."
T10B8 "God's Mind cannot be lessened."
T10C4 "Every healing thought which you ACCEPT, either FROM your brother or in your OWN mind, teaches you that you are God's Son."

T11A2 "This is quite evidently a mental split, in which you have attacked the integrity of your mind, and pitted one level within it against another."
T11B2 "Perhaps the danger of this to your OWN mind is not yet fully apparent."
T11B5 "He does NOT change His mind about reality, because REALITY does not change."

T11D7 "If only the loving thoughts of God's Son ARE the world's reality, the real world MUST be IN HIS MIND."
T11D7 "His insane thoughts, too, must be in his mind, but an INTERNAL conflict of this magnitude he cannot tolerate."

T11D8 "That is why you MUST realize that your hatred IS in your mind, and NOT OUTSIDE IT, before you can get rid of it."
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."
T11D10 "For it was made out of what you do NOT want, projected FROM your mind, because you were AFRAID of it."
T11D11 "Yet this world is ONLY in the mind of its maker, along with his REAL salvation."
T11D11 "For you DO have control over your mind, for the mind is the mechanism of decision."
T11D11 "If you will recognize that ALL attack which you perceive, is in your own mind, and NOWHERE ELSE, you will at last have placed its source, and where it began it must end."
T11E2 "The SEARCH is inevitable, because the ego is part of your mind, and because of its source, the ego is not wholly split off, or it could not be believed at all."
T11E2 "For it is your mind that BELIEVES in it, and gives existence TO it."
T11E2 "Yet it is ALSO your mind that has the power to DENY its existence, and you will surely do so when you realize exactly what the journey it sets you IS."
T11F1 "BEFORE the idea of attack can enter your mind, YOU MUST HAVE PERCEIVED YOURSELF AS WEAK."

T11H11 "Yet you COULD not have seen reality, for the reality of your mind is the loveliest of God's Creations."
T11H11 "Yet in this same place you could have looked upon me and all your brothers, in the perfect safety of the Mind that created us."
T11H14 "The death penalty never leaves the ego's mind, for that is what it always reserves for you in the end."
T11I2 "For a split mind and all its works were not created by the Father, and could not live in the knowledge OF Him."
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."
T11J1 "It is the judgment of one mind by another as UNWORTHY of love, and DESERVING of punishment."
T11J1 "For the mind that judges, perceives itself as SEPARATE from the mind being judged, believing that by punishing ANOTHER, IT will escape punishment."
T11J1 "All this is but the delusional attempt of the mind to deny itself, and ESCAPE THE PENALTY OF DENIAL."
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."

T12C7 "For BENEATH them, and concealed as long as THEY are hidden, is the loving mind that THOUGHT it made them in anger."
T12C7 "And the pain in this mind is so apparent, when it is uncovered, that its need of healing cannot BE denied."
T12C12 "For a darkened mind cannot live in the light, and it must seek a place of darkness, where it can believe it is where it is NOT."
T12D3 "An open mind is more honest than this."
T12E2 "For these figures HAVE NO WITNESSES, being perceived in one SEPARATE mind only."
T12E4 "Its ONLY reality is in your OWN mind, and by attacking others, you are literally attacking WHAT IS NOT THERE."
T12E6 "In your madness, you OVERLOOK REALITY COMPLETELY, and you see ONLY YOUR SPLIT MIND everywhere you look."
T12G4 "The out of mind is out of sight, because what is denied is THERE, but is not recognized."
T12G12 "What comes to you of Him comes safely, for He will ensure it never can become a dark spot, hidden in your mind, and kept to hurt you."

T12G14 "We will restore to you the peace of mind that we MUST find together."
T12G15 "The sound of it will banish sorrow from the mind of God's most holy Son, where it cannot abide."

T13A2 "YOU are an aspect of knowledge, being in the Mind of God, Who KNOWS you."
T13B2 "He is not separate from either, being in the mind of both, and knowing that Mind is one."
T13C4 "You could as easily have FREED him from the past, and lifted from his mind the cloud of guilt that binds him TO it."
T13D1 "You are accustomed to the notion that the mind can see the source of pain where it is not."
T13D5 "A minute, even less, will be enough to free you from the past, and give your mind in peace over to the Atonement."
T13D6 "The Holy Spirit does not KEEP illusions in your mind to frighten you, and show them to you fearfully, to demonstrate what He has saved you FROM."
T13D10 "Your guilt is without reason, because it is not in the Mind of God, where YOU are."
T13D15 "Believing this, he must escape, for such a war would surely end his peace of mind, and so destroy him."
T13E3 "You WILL find the peace in which He has established you, because HE does NOT change His Mind."
T13E7 "Learn that even the darkest nightmare that disturbed the mind of God's sleeping Son, holds no power over him."
T13E9 "The Holy Spirit has a very different kind of reconciliation in His mind for you, and one which HE WILL EFFECT, as surely as the ego will NOT effect what it attempts."
T13F4 "The thoughts which the mind of God's Son projects, HAVE all the power that he gives them."
T13G2 "But you will add another burden to your mind, ALREADY burdened, or you would NOT have sought another."
T13H8 "Do not attest to it, and do not foster belief in it in any mind."
T13H8 "Remember always MIND IS ONE, and CAUSE IS ONE."
T13H12 "Peace abides in every mind that quietly accepts the plan that GOD has set for his Atonement, RELINQUISHING HIS OWN."
T13H13 "And it is HIS decision to undo EVERYTHING that would obscure your innocence from your unclouded mind."
T13H14 "For it is quite impossible that He could ever let His Son drop from His loving Mind, wherein he was created, and where his abode was fixed in perfect peace forever."
T13I2 "The state of guiltlessness is only the condition in which what is NOT there has been REMOVED, from the disordered mind that THOUGHT it WAS."
T13I3 "When you have let all that has obscured the truth in your most holy mind be undone for you, and stand in grace before your Father, He will give Himself to you, as He has ALWAYS done."
T13I3 "Ask rather to LEARN how to forgive, and restore WHAT ALWAYS WAS to your unforgiving mind."
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."
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."
T14A3 "The Atonement was established as the means of restoring guiltlessness to the mind which has denied it, and thus denied Heaven to Itself."
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 "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."
T14B2 "The only part of your mind that has reality, is the part that links you still with God."
T14B4 "There is nothing in the Mind of God that does not share his shining innocence."
T14C5 "He KNOWS you are not separate from God, but He perceives much in your mind that lets you THINK you are."
T14D1 "For their separation is only in your mind, and they are reconciled by union, as YOU are."
T14D5 "Light cannot enter darkness, when a mind BELIEVES in darkness, and will not let it go."
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."
T14D10 "Banish not power from your mind, but let all that would hide your glory, be brought to the judgment of the Holy Spirit, and there undone."
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."
T14E7 "The image of holiness that shines in YOUR mind is NOT obscure, and will NOT change."
T14F4 "And this is true about the thoughts that cross the mind of those who think they live apart."
T14F5 "It shifts unceasingly across the mirror of your mind, and the reflections of Heaven last but a moment, and grow dim, as darkness blots them out."
T14F9 "You who believe you understand something of the dynamics of the mind, let me assure you that you know NOTHING of it at all."
T14F9 "The study of the ego is NOT the study of the mind."
T14F12 "Neither his mind, NOR YOURS, holds but these two orders of thought."
T14G10 "They do not exist in His Mind at all."
T14G11 "He would establish His bright teaching so firmly in your mind, that no dark lessons of guilt can abide in what He has established as holy by His Presence."
T14G14 "The Holy Spirit will, OF HIMSELF, fill every mind that so makes room for Him."
T15B10 "Whenever you are tempted to be dispirited by the thought of HOW LONG it would take to change your mind so completely, ask yourself, "How long is an instant?""
T15E4 "And yet, it is your mind that IS the host to Him."
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."
T15E6 "This means, however, that it is a time in which your mind is OPEN, both to receive AND give."
T15E8 "And it cannot come into a mind that has decided to OPPOSE it."
T15F11 "For the holy instant reaches to eternity, and to the Mind of God."
T15G3 "In the holy instant, you recognize the IDEA of love in you, and UNITE this idea with the Mind that thought It, AND COULD NOT RELINQUISH IT."
T15G3 "The holy instant thus becomes a lesson in how to hold ALL of your brothers in YOUR mind, experiencing not loss, but COMPLETION."
T15G7 "But remember that understanding is OF THE MIND, and, ONLY of the mind."
T15G7 "KNOWLEDGE is therefore of the mind, and its CONDITIONS are in the mind, WITH it."
T15H3 "You have NOTHING to lose by looking open-eyed at this, for ugliness such as this belongs not in your holy mind."
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."
T15H8 "It is always PHYSICAL closeness that the ego demands, and it does not object where the mind goes, or what it thinks, for this seems unimportant."
T15H8 "To the ego, THE MIND IS PRIVATE, and only the body CAN be shared."
T15H12 "They can do only as the mind directs."
T15K7 "And communication, which MUST be of the mind, CANNOT be sacrificed."
T16A4 "Keep but one thought in mind, and do not lose sight of it, however tempted you may be to judge the situation, and DETERMINE your response BY judging it."
T16A4 "Focus your mind only on this: "I am not alone, and I would not intrude the past upon my Guest."
T16C4 "You have succeeded whenever you have reached another mind, and JOINED with it."
T16D6 "For nothing real has ever left the mind of its Creator."
T16E10 "Every illusion which you accept into your mind, BY JUDGING IT TO BE ATTAINABLE, removes your own sense of completion, and thus denies the Wholeness of your Father."
T16F13 "You can NOT change His Mind."
T16H7 "The illusions you bring with you, will weaken the EXPERIENCE of Him for a while, and will prevent you from KEEPING the experience in your mind."
T17A2 "They CANNOT do so IN reality, but they CAN do so in the mind that would HAVE REALITY DIFFERENT."
T17B4 "But forget not this; when you become disturbed and lose YOUR peace of mind because ANOTHER is attempting to solve his problems through fantasy, you are refusing to FORGIVE YOURSELF for just this same attempt."
T17C5 "The Great Transformer of perception will undertake WITH you the careful searching of the mind that MADE this world, and uncover TO YOU the SEEMING reasons for your making it."
T17C7 "Even salvation will become a dream, and vanish from his mind."
T17D10 "Give the past to Him Who can change YOUR mind about it, FOR you."
T17E5 "The ego IS hyper alert to threat, and the part of your mind into which the ego was accepted is VERY anxious to preserve its reason, AS IT SEES IT."
T17F5 "Only a radical shift in purpose COULD induce a COMPLETE change of mind about what the whole relationship IS FOR."
T18C5 "Yet here is a world, clearly WITHIN your mind, that SEEMS to be outside."
T18C10 "For we are joined as one in purpose, being of one mind with Him."
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."
T18D9 "Not one ray that shines forever in the Mind of God but shines on you."
T18F2 "Never approach the holy instant AFTER you have tried to remove all fear and hatred from your mind."
T18F3 "Nor will He change His Mind about it."
T18G3 "Only by assigning to the mind the properties OF THE BODY, does separation SEEM to be possible."
T18G3 "And it is MIND that seems to be fragmented and private and ALONE."
T18G3 "Its guilt, which KEEPS it separate, is projected to the body, which suffers and dies, BECAUSE IT IS ATTACKED to hold the separation in the mind, and let it NOT KNOW its unity."
T18G3 "Mind cannot attack, but it CAN make fantasies, and direct the body to act them out."
T18G3 "Unless the mind BELIEVES the body is ACTUALLY acting out ITS fantasies, it will attack the body by INCREASING the projection of its guilt upon it."
T18G4 "In this, the mind is CLEARLY delusional."
T18G4 "The mind can not attack, but it CAN deceive itself."
T18G9 "The body is a limit imposed on the universal communication which is an eternal property of mind."
T18G9 "Mind reaches to ITSELF."
T18G12 "If you will consider what this "transportation" REALLY entails, you will realize that it is a sudden UNawareness of the body, and a joining of your self and SOMETHING ELSE, in which your mind ENLARGES to encompass it."
T18G13 "You have accepted this INSTEAD of the body, and have LET yourself be ONE with something beyond it, simply by NOT letting your mind be limited BY it."
T18G16 "There are the laws of limit lifted FOR you, to welcome you to openness of mind, and freedom."
T18H7 "When peace comes at last to those who wrestle with temptation, and fight against giving in to sin; when the light comes at last into the mind given to contemplation, or when the goal is finally achieved by anyone, it ALWAYS comes with just ONE happy realization, -- "I need do nothing.""
T18H9 "And, if you recognize you NEED do nothing, you HAVE withdrawn the body's value from your mind."
T18H10 "He will remain when you forget, and the body's activities return to occupy your conscious mind."
T18I3 "This fragment of your mind is such a tiny part of it that, could you but appreciate the whole, you would see instantly that it is like the smallest sunbeam is to the sun."
T18I5 "Each body seems to house a SEPARATE mind, a DISCONNECTED thought, living alone and in no way joined to the Thought by which it was created."
T18J3 "From the world of bodies, MADE by insanity, insane messages seem to be returned to the mind which made it."
T19A2 "The BODY is healed BECAUSE YOU CAME WITHOUT IT, and joined the Mind in which all healing rests."
T19B1 "Its health or sickness depends ENTIRELY on how the mind perceives it, and the purpose which the mind would use it FOR."
T19B1 "And it IS obvious that a segment of the mind CAN see itself as SEPARATED from the Universal Purpose."
T19B4 "While the OTHER part would HEAL, and therefore calls upon the mind, and NOT the body."
T19B4 "The INEVITABLE compromise is the belief that the BODY must be healed, and NOT the mind."
T19B4 "For this divided goal has given both an EQUAL reality, and can SEEM to be possible only if the mind is limited TO the body, and divided into little parts with SEEMING wholeness, but WITHOUT CONNECTION."
T19B5 "But it WILL keep the delusional thought-system IN THE MIND."
T19B5 "They ARE together, and when they are SEEN together, ALL attempts to KEEP both truth AND illusion in the mind, where both MUST be, are recognized as DEDICATION TO ILLUSION."
T19B7 "If you but understood how much this strange concealment has hurt your mind, and how confused your own identification has become to you, BECAUSE of it!"
T19B12 "Grace is not given to a BODY, but to a MIND."
T19B12 "And the mind that RECEIVES it, looks INSTANTLY beyond the body, and sees the holy place where IT was healed."
T19B15 "You CAN enslave a body, but an IDEA is free, INCAPABLE of being kept in prison, or limited in ANY way,EXCEPT BY THE MIND THAT THOUGHT IT."
T19C1 "And thus the mind IS guilty, and will forever so remain, unless a mind NOT part of it can give it absolution."
T19C3 "The Son of God CAN be mistaken; he CAN deceive himself; he can even turn the power of his mind AGAINST himself."
T19C8 "For he has somehow managed to corrupt his Father, and change His Mind COMPLETELY."
T19D1 "Fear can become so acute that the sin is denied the acting out, but, while the guilt REMAINS attractive, the mind will suffer, and not let go the IDEA of the sin."
T19D1 "For guilt still calls to it, and the mind hears it and yearns for it, making it a willing captive to its sick appeal."
T19D1 "And only an AVENGER, with a mind UNLIKE your own, could stamp it out through FEAR."
T19D6 "And this is but an error in perception, which can be easily corrected IN THE MIND, although the body's eyes will see no change."
T19D6 "The eyes see many things the mind corrects, and YOU respond, NOT to the eyes' illusions, BUT TO THE MIND's CORRECTIONS."
T19D6 "Yet in your mind is One Who KNOWS it is unbroken, and forever changeless."
T19D7 "In error, yes, for this CAN be corrected by the mind."
T19D7 "But sin is the belief that YOUR perception is UNCHANGEABLE, and that the MIND must ACCEPT AS TRUE what it is told THROUGH it."
T19D7 "If it does not obey, the MIND is judged insane."
T19D9 "For the belief that bodies LIMIT the mind leads to a perception of the world in which the PROOF of separation seems to be everywhere."
T19D12 "For, in the NEW perception, the mind CORRECTS it when it SEEMS to be seen, and it becomes invisible."
T19G3 "The Holy Spirit's messengers are sent far beyond the body, calling the mind to join in holy communion, and be at peace."
T19H3 "Only the mind can set a purpose, and only mind can see the means for its accomplishment, and justify its use."
T19H3 "Peace and guilt are both conditions of the mind, to be ATTAINED."
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."
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."
T19L9 "Join him in gladness, and remove all trace of guilt from his disturbed and tortured mind."
T20C2 "Only the mind can value, and only the mind decides on what it would receive and give."
T20G11 "This produces what SEEMS to be a wall of flesh AROUND the mind, keeping it prisoner in a tiny spot of space and time, beholden unto death, and given but an instant in which to sigh and grieve and die in honor of its master."
T21A1 "It is the witness to your state of mind, the OUTSIDE picture of an INWARD condition."
T21A1 "Therefore, seek not to change the WORLD, but will to change your mind ABOUT the world."
T21C1 "The tiny change of mind by which the crucifixion is changed to Resurrection."
T21D2 "For nothing is so cherished and protected, as is a goal the mind accepts."
T21D10 "The mind could neither ask it nor RECEIVE it of itself."
T21D10 "The INTENTION is in the mind, which tries to USE the body to carry out the means for sin, in which the MIND believes."
T21D10 "Thus is the JOINING of mind and body an INESCAPABLE belief of those who value sin."
T21D12 "You gave perception and belief and faith from mind TO body."
T21E4 "The Holy Spirit's purpose was accepted by the part of your mind the ego knows not of."
T21F1 "It literally PICKS IT OUT, as mind directs."
T21F4 "And thus it recognizes that miracles do NOT affect ANOTHER'S mind, only its OWN."
T21F4 "They always change YOUR mind."
T21F5 "How can the segment of the mind DEVOID of reason understand what reason IS?"
T21F10 "Faith and belief are STRONG in madness, guiding perception toward what the mind has valued."
T21F11 "The part of mind where reason lies was dedicated, by your will in union with your Father's, to the UNDOING of insanity."
T21G3 "Nor could one mind think only for itself, unless the body WERE the mind."
T21G4 "Madness is an ATTACK on reason, that drives it out of mind, and TAKES ITS PLACE."
T21G7 "But reason tells you it is GIVEN you to change his whole mind, which is one with YOU, in just an instant."
T21H10 "You can desire a world you rule, which rules you not, and CHANGE your mind."
T21H11 "For only then have you RENOUNCED the option to change your mind AGAIN."
T21H13 "And none can leave the thinker's mind, or leave him unaffected."
T22C9 "It is the meaningless idea that thoughts can leave the thinker's mind, be DIFFERENT from it, AND IN OPPOSITION to it."
T22C9 "If this were true, thoughts would not be the mind's extensions, but its ENEMIES."
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."
T22D3 "Reason is not salvation in itself, but it MAKES WAY for peace, and brings you to a state of mind in which salvation can be given you."
T22D9 "Yet reason sees a holy relationship as what it IS; a common state of mind, where both give errors gladly to correction, that both may happily be healed as one."
T22G1 "Do you want freedom of the body, or of the mind?"
T22G1 "He will believe it possible of mind OR body, and he will make the other SERVE his choice, as means to find it."
T22G2 "Where freedom of the BODY has been chosen, the mind is used as MEANS, whose value lies in its ability to contrive ways to achieve the body's freedom."
T22G2 "And so the mind is DEDICATED to serve illusions."
T23B1 "The memory of God comes to the quiet mind."
T23B1 "It CANNOT come where there is conflict, for a mind at war against itself remembers not Eternal Gentleness."
T23B8 "Let all this madness be undone for you, and turn in peace to the remembrance of God, still shining in your quiet mind."
T23E6 "When the temptation to attack rises to make your mind darkened and murderous, remember you CAN see the battle from above."
T23E7 "Only a PURPOSE unifies, and those who share a purpose have a mind as one."
T24A1 "Given this state, the mind is quiet, and the condition in which God is remembered is attained."
T24A2 "And your decisions come from your beliefs as certainly as all creation rose in His Mind BECAUSE of what He knows."
T24C6 "The shining radiance of the Son of God, so like his Father that the memory of Him springs instantly to mind."
T24C6 "And all the world he made, and all his specialness, and all the sins he held in its defense AGAINST himself, will vanish as his mind accepts the truth about himself, as it returns to take their place."
T24C8 "Let him forgive you all your specialness, and make you whole in mind, and one with him."
T24D5 "They are NOT BODIES; as One Mind they wait for all illusions to be BROUGHT to them, and left behind."
T24E2 "Purpose is of the mind."
T24E3 "The purpose of attack is in the MIND, and its effects are felt but where it IS."
T24E3 "Nor is mind limited; so must it be that harmful purpose hurts the mind AS ONE."
T24G3 "And no thought within His Mind is absent from your own."
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."
T24H4 "Ask yourself this: CAN YOU PROTECT THE MIND?"
T24H8 "It is essential it be kept in mind that ALL perception still is upside down, until its PURPOSE has been understood."
T25A3 "But the mind that thinks it IS a body is sick indeed!"
T25B1 "For the Mind is HIS."
T25B1 "HIS holiness directs the body THROUGH the mind at one with Him."
T25B3 "Perception is a choice of what you want YOURSELF to be; the world you WANT to live in, and the state in which you think your mind will be content and satisfied."
T25B3 "And ALWAYS is it faithful to your purpose, from which it never separates, nor gives the slightest witness unto anything the purpose IN YOUR MIND upholdeth not."
T25B6 "The Holy Spirit serves Christ's purpose in your mind, so that the aim of specialness CAN be corrected where the error lies."
T25B6 "But this is understood by mind PERCEIVED as one, AWARE that it is one, AND SO EXPERIENCED."
T25B7 "It is apparent that a mind so split could NEVER be the teacher of the Oneness Which unites ALL things within Itself."
T25B7 "And so what IS within this mind, and DOES unite all things together MUST be its teacher."
T25B7 "Yet must It use the language which this mind can understand in the condition which it THINKS it is."
T25C4 "Be glad that it is gone within your mind to darken what IS there."
T25C7 "Look at its loveliness, and understand the Mind that thought it, NOT in flesh and bones, but in a frame as lovely as Itself."
T25C7 "Within the darkness see the Savior FROM the dark, and understand your brother as his Father's Mind shows him to you."
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."
T25D5 "Nothing remains an instant, to obscure the sinlessness that shines unchanged, beyond the pitiful attempts of specialness to put it out of mind, where it MUST be, and light the BODY up INSTEAD of it."
T25H3 "And NOTHING that the world believes as true has ANY meaning in His Mind at all."
T25H5 "And it is the AGREEMENT of their Thought that makes the Son a co-creator with the Mind Whose Thought created him."
T25I2 "Have little faith that wisdom COULD be found in such a state of mind."
T25I5 "Vengeance is alien to His Mind BECAUSE He knows of justice."
T25I5 "It is impossible for you to SHARE the Holy Spirit's justice, with a mind that can conceive of specialness at all."
T26E4 "What BUT a miracle could change his mind, so that he understands that love cannot BE feared?"
T26F3 "Time lasted but an instant in your mind, with NO effect upon eternity."
T26F4 "Not one illusion still remains unanswered in your mind."
T26F9 "And how can he be kept in chains long since removed, and gone forever from his mind?"
T26H3 "Ideas are of the mind."
T26H3 "What is projected OUT, and seems to be EXTERNAL to the mind, is NOT outside at all, but an effect of what is in, and has NOT left its source."
T26H6 "Thus has He lost His Mind, proclaiming sin has taken His reality from Him, and brought His Love at last to vengeance' heels."
T26H11 "Sin is belief attack can be projected OUTSIDE the mind where the belief arose."
T26H12 "Such is creation's law; that each idea the mind conceives but ADDS to its abundance, NEVER takes away."
T26H12 "This is as true of what is idly wished as what is truly willed, because the mind can wish to be deceived, but CANNOT make it be what it is not."
T26I7 "Yet this illusion has a cause which, though untrue, must be ALREADY in your mind."
T27B8 "For now it witnesses to NOTHING yet, its purpose being open, and the mind made free again to choose what it is FOR."
T27C4 "A broken body shows the mind has NOT been healed."
T27C5 "So does your healing show your mind is healed, and has forgiven what he did NOT do."
T27C11 "In a split mind, identity MUST seem to be divided."
T27C11 "Correction, to a mind so split, MUST be a way to punish sins you think are YOURS in someone else."
T27C12 "When you perceive correction is the SAME as pardon, then you also know the Holy Spirit's Mind and yours are One."
T27C12 "Yet must He work with what is GIVEN Him, and you allow Him only HALF your mind."
T27C16 "With HALF a mind, this is NOT understood."
T27C16 "Leave, then, correction to the Mind That IS united, functioning as One BECAUSE It is not split in purpose, and conceives a single function as Its ONLY one."
T27C16 "In His ACCEPTANCE of this function lies the means whereby your mind is unified."
T27E2 "Yet it must also be that in your state of mind, solution is impossible."
T27E2 "Therefore, God must have given you a way of reaching to ANOTHER state of mind, in which the answer is ALREADY THERE."
T27E7 "The Holy Instant is the interval in which the mind is still enough to hear an answer that is NOT entailed within the question asked."
T27F2 "This does NOT mean the conflict must be gone forever from your mind."
T27F3 "From there, each one is born into this world, as witness to a state of mind which has TRANSCENDED conflict, and has reached to peace."
T27H2 "No-one has difficulty making up his mind to let a simple problem be resolved, if it is SEEN as hurting him, and also very easily removed."
T27H7 "Whatever cause they have is something quite APART from him, and what he sees is SEPARATE from his mind."
T27H8 "Helpless he stands, a victim to a dream conceived and cherished by a SEPARATE mind."
T27H8 "Careless indeed of him this mind must be, as thoughtless of his peace and happiness as is the weather, or the time of day."
T27H9 "And this IS what you choose, if you deny the cause of suffering is in YOUR mind."
T27H13 "So fearful is the dream, so seeming real, he could not waken to reality without the sweat of terror and a scream of mortal fear, unless a gentler dream preceded his awaking, and allowed his calmer mind to welcome, NOT to fear, the Voice that called with love to waken him."
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."
T28A1 "The thoughts that made it are no longer in the mind that thought of them, and loved them for a while."
T28B5 "Who would keep a senseless lesson in his mind, when he can learn and can preserve a BETTER one?"
T28B6 "It has never changed, because there never was a time in which He did not keep it safely in your mind."
T28B6 "Yet, was It NEVER absent from your mind, for it was NOT your Father's Will that He be unremembered by His only Son."
T28B9 "The miracle comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant, and is still."
T28B9 "It reaches gently from that quiet time, and from the mind it healed in quiet then, to other minds to SHARE its quietness."
T28B9 "And they will JOIN in doing nothing to prevent its radiant extension back into the Mind that caused ALL minds to be."
T28B11 "How instantly the memory of God arises in the mind that has no fear to keep the memory away."
T28C2 "Yet must all healing come about because the mind is recognized as NOT within the body, and its innocence is quite APART from it, and where ALL healing IS."
T28C3 "A mind within a body, and a world of other bodies, each with SEPARATE minds, are your "creations," you the "other" mind, creating with effects UNLIKE yourself."
T28C11 "Thus is the body healed by miracles BECAUSE they show the mind MADE sickness, and employed the body to be victim, or EFFECT, of what it made."
T28C11 "The lesson is the MIND was sick that thought the body COULD be sick; projecting OUT its guilt caused NOTHING, and had NO effects."
T28C12 "The body is released, because the mind acknowledges "this is not DONE TO me, but I am doing this.""
T28C12 "And thus the mind is free to make another choice instead."
T28D1 "No mind is sick until another mind AGREES that they are separate."
T28D2 "If you WITHHOLD agreement, and accept the part YOU play in making sickness real, the other mind cannot project its guilt without your aid in LETTING it perceive itself as separate and apart from YOU."
T28D2 "UNITING with a brother's mind prevents the CAUSE of sickness, and perceived effects."
T28E2 "The dream is but illusion in the mind."
T28E2 "And with the MIND you WOULD unite, but NEVER with the dream."
T28E2 "It is the DREAM you fear, and NOT the mind."
T28E3 "Think, rather, of him as a mind in which illusions still persist, but as a mind which brother is to you."
T28E3 "Your mind and his ARE joined in brotherhood."
T28E6 "His desire to be a sick and separated mind can NOT remain without a witness or a cause."
T28F1 "But who WITHDRAWS his mind from sharing them IS sharing Him."
T28G3 "Yet you have made of it a symbol of the limitations which you want your MIND to have and see and KEEP."
T28G4 "The body REPRESENTS the gap between the little bit of mind you call your own, and all the rest of what is REALLY yours."
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."
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."
T29B2 "For now you think that IT determines when you meet, and limits your ability to make communion with each other's mind."
T29C7 "And this but means the mind remains unchanged in its belief of what the PURPOSE of the body is."
T29D4 "On earth this means forgive your brother, that the darkness may be lifted from YOUR mind."
T29G3 "But you can NOT remove the Power to change your mind, and see ANOTHER purpose there."
T29H7 "Yet where ARE dreams, but in a mind asleep?"
T29I2 "In some way you believe they will complete your little self, and let you walk in safety in a world perceived as dangerous, with forces massed against your confidence and peace of mind."
T29I3 "An idol is a wish, made tangible and given form, and thus perceived as real, and seen OUTSIDE the mind."
T29I3 "Yet they remain ideas, and CANNOT leave the mind that is their source."
T29I4 "Its form is nowhere, for its source abides within your mind where God abideth not."
T29J1 "A dream of judgment came into the mind that God created perfect as Himself."
T29J7 "It is a dream in which no-one is used to substitute for something else, or interposed between the thoughts the mind conceives and what it sees."
T29J8 "They are not made to separate the mind from what it thinks."
T30B3 "Now the answer will provoke attack, unless you quickly straighten out your mind to WANT an answer that will work."
T30B5 "If you are so unwilling to receive you cannot even let your QUESTION go, you can begin to change your mind with this: "At least I can decide I do not LIKE what I feel now.""
T30B7 " Now you have changed your mind about the day, and have REMEMBERED what you really want."
T30B8 "It is a statement of an open mind, not certain yet, but willing to be shown: "Perhaps there IS another way to look at this."
T30B12 "Let this be the ONE reminder that you keep in mind, and you will have the day you want, and give it to the world by having it yourselves."
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 "The thoughts YOU think are in your mind, as you are in the Mind Which thought of you."
T30D6 "And so there ARE no separate parts in what exists within God's Mind."
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 "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."
T30D10 "Forget not, then, that idols MUST keep hidden what you are, NOT from the Mind of God, but from your own."
T30E6 "Appearances can but deceive the mind that WANTS to be deceived."
T30F1 "The real world is the state of mind in which the ONLY purpose of the world is seen to be forgiveness."
T30F5 "The real world is a state in which the mind has learned how easily do idols go when they are still perceived, but wanted not."
T30F5 "How willingly the mind can let them go when it has understood that idols are nothing and nowhere, AND ARE PURPOSELESS."
T30G4 "The mind MUST think of its Creator as it looks upon itself."
T31A11 "It is the RECOGNITION that it is a state of mind UNWANTED that becomes the means whereby the choice is reassessed; another outcome seen to be preferred."
T31A12 "Be innocent of judgment, unaware of any thoughts of evil or of good that ever crossed your mind of anyone."
T31C3 "If you are sin you ARE a body, for the mind acts not."
T31C3 "And purpose must be in the body, NOT the mind."
T31C3 "If you are sin, you lock the mind WITHIN the body, and you give its purpose to its prison house, which acts INSTEAD of it."
T31C4 "Yet is the BODY prisoner, and NOT the mind."
T31C4 "It gives no orders that the mind need serve, nor sets conditions that it must obey."
T31C4 "It holds in prison but the willing mind that would abide in it."
T31C4 "It sickens at the bidding of the mind that would become its prisoner."
T31C4 "And it grows old and dies, because that mind is sick within ITSELF."
T31C4 "And so the body, where no learning CAN occur, could never change unless the mind PREFERRED the body change in its appearances, to suit the purpose given by the mind."
T31C5 "The mind that thinks it is a sin has but ONE purpose; that the body be the source of sin, and KEEP it in the prison house it chose, and guards, and holds itself at bay, a sleeping prisoner to the snarling dogs of hate and evil, sickness and attack; of pain and age, of grief and suffering."
T31C6 "Open your mind to change, and there will be no ancient penalty exacted from your brother or yourself."
T31E2 "For it is made to serve two purposes, but one of which the mind can recognize."
T31E7 "Now must the Holy Spirit find a way to help you see this concept of the self must be undone, if ANY peace of mind is to be given you."
T31E11 "It also shows some glimmering of sight into perception's law that what you see reflects the state of the PERCEIVER's mind."
T31E13 "It does not concern itself with content of the mind, but with the simple statement THAT IT THINKS."
T31E15 "There will be some confusion every time there is a shift, but be you thankful that the learning of the world is loosening its grasp upon your mind."
T31E15 "And be you sure and happy in the confidence that it will go at last, and leave your mind at peace."
T31E16 "It is to this unsealed and open mind that truth returns, unhindered and unbound."
T31G6 "Yet it need not be fixed, unless you choose to hold it past the hope of change, and keep it static and concealed within your mind."
T31G6 "Alternatives are in your mind to use, and you CAN see yourself another way."
T31G13 "And thus it serves a wholly open mind, unclouded by old concepts and prepared to look on ONLY what the present holds."
W1IN11 "An untrained mind can accomplish nothing."
W1IN11 "It is the purpose of these exercises to train the mind to think along the lines which the course sets forth."
W1IN13 "The purpose of these exercises is to train the mind to a different perception of everything in the world."
W1IN13 "The purpose is to train the mind to generalize the lessons, so that you will understand that each of them is as applicable to one situation as it is to another."
W3L2 "The point of the exercises is to help you clear your mind of all past associations, to see things exactly as they appear to you now, and to realize how little you really understand about them."
W3L2 "It is therefore essential that you keep a perfectly open mind, unhampered by judgment, in selecting the things to which the idea for the day is to be applied."
W4L1 "In these practice periods, begin with noting the thoughts that are crossing your mind for about a minute."
W4L3 "It is also the beginning of training your mind to recognize what is the same and what is different."
W4L4 "Do not, however, examine your mind for more than a minute or so."
W5L2 "But again, this should not be substituted for practice periods in which you first search your mind for "sources" of upset in which you believe, and forms of upset which you think result."
W5L3 "They are all equally disturbing to my peace of mind.""
W5L3 "Then examine your mind for whatever is distressing you, regardless of how much or how little you think it is doing so."
W5L4 "Then search your mind for no more than a minute or so, and try to identify a number of different forms of upset that are disturbing you, regardless of the relative importance you may give them."
W6L3 "They are all equally disturbing to my peace of mind.""
W8L1 "The mind's preoccupation with the past is the cause of the total misconception about time from which your seeing suffers."
W8L1 "Your mind cannot grasp the present, which is the only time there is."
W8L2 "The mind is actually blank when it does this, because it is not really thinking about anything."
W8L3 "The purpose of the exercises for today is to begin to train your mind to recognize when it is not really thinking at all."
W8L3 "While thoughtless "ideas" preoccupy your mind, the truth is blocked."
W8L3 "Recognizing that your mind has been merely blank, rather than believing that it is filled with real ideas, is the first step to opening the way to vision."
W8L4 "With as little investment as possible, search your mind for the usual minute or so, merely noting the thoughts you find there."
W8L4 "Then name each of your thoughts specifically, for example: "I seem to be thinking about (name of person), about (name of object), about (name of emotion), and so on," concluding at the end of the mind-searching period with: "But my mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.""
W9L2 "It is difficult for the untrained mind to believe that what seems to be pictured before it is not there."
W9L2 "Each little step will clear a little of the darkness away, and understanding will finally come to lighten every corner of the mind which has been cleared of the debris which darkens it."
W10L3 "This is merely another way of repeating our earlier statement that your mind is really a blank."
W10L4 " The exercises consist, as before, in searching your mind for all the thoughts which are available to you, without selection or judgment."
W10L4 "As each one crosses your mind, say: "This thought about ____ does not mean anything.""
W12L3 "All terms which cross your mind are suitable subjects for today's exercises."
W14L4 "With eyes closed, think of all the horrors in the world that cross your mind."
W14L6 "What God did not create can only be in your own mind apart from His."
W16L4 "In applying the idea for today, search your mind for a minute or so, with eyes closed, and actively seek not to overlook any "little" thought which tends to elude the search."
W16L5 "In the practice periods, first repeat the idea, and then as each one crosses your mind, hold it in awareness while you tell yourself: "This thought about ____ is not a neutral thought.""
W19L3 "The idea is to be repeated first, and then the mind should be carefully searched for the thoughts it contains at that time."
W19L3 "As you consider each one, name it in terms of the central person or theme it contains, and holding it in your mind as you do so, say: "I am not alone in experiencing the effects of this thought about ____.""
W21L2 "Then close your eyes and search your mind carefully for situations past, present or anticipated, which arouse anger in you."
W21L4 "As you search your mind for all the forms in which attack thoughts present themselves, hold each one in mind and tell yourself; "I am determined to see ____ (name of person) differently.""
W22L1 "Today's idea accurately describes the way anyone who holds attack thoughts in his mind must see the world."
W22L1 "What peace of mind is possible to him then?"
W23L6 "As you look about you, repeat the idea slowly to yourself, and then close your eyes and devote about a minute to searching your mind for as many attack thoughts as occur to you."
W23L6 "As each one crosses your mind, say: "I can escape from the world by giving up attack thoughts about ____.""
W23L6 "Hold each one in mind as you say this, and then dismiss that thought and go on to the next."
W24L2 "The idea for today is a step toward opening your mind so that learning can begin."
W24L4 "Practice periods begin with repeating today's idea, followed by searching the mind, with closed eyes, for unresolved situations about which you are currently concerned."
W24L4 "You will quickly realize that you have a number of goals in mind as part of the desired outcome; and also that these goals are on different levels, and often conflict."
W24L6 "You will also recognize that many of your goals are contradictory, that you have no unified outcome in mind, and that you must experience disappointment in connection with some of your goals however the situation turns out."
W24L6 "After covering the list of as many hoped for goals as possible for each unresolved situation that crosses your mind, say to yourself: "I do not perceive my own best interests in this situation," and go on to the next."
W26L2 "Attack thoughts therefore make you vulnerable in your own mind, which is where the attack thoughts are."
W28L5 "You could, in fact, gain vision from just that table, if you could withdraw all your own ideas from it, and look upon it with a completely open mind."
W30L4 "The mind is its only source."
W30L5 "To aid in helping you to become more accustomed to this idea as well, devote several practice periods to applying today's idea with your eyes closed, using whatever subject comes to mind, and looking within rather than without."
W31L3 "As you survey your inner world, merely let whatever thoughts cross your mind come into your awareness, each to be considered for a moment and then replaced by the next."
W32L2 "However, since you see them as different, the practice periods for today will again include two phases, one involving the world you see outside you, and the other the world you see in your mind."
W34L1 "Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter."
W34L1 "It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises."
W34L3 "Search your mind for fear thoughts, anxiety provoking situations, "offending" personalities or events, or anything else about which you are harboring unloving thoughts."
W34L3 "Note each one casually, repeating the idea for today slowly, as you watch them arise in your mind, and let each one go to be replaced by the next."
W34L5 "The shorter applications are to be frequent, and made whenever you feel your peace of mind is threatened in any way."
W34L5 " If the inroads on your peace of mind take the form of more generalized adverse emotions, such as depression, anxiety or worry, use the idea in its original form."
W34L6 "If you find you need more than one application of today's idea to help you change your mind in any specific context, try to take several minutes and devote them to repeating the idea until you feel some sense of relief."
W35L4 "For each of the three five-minute practice periods today, begin by repeating today's idea to yourself, and then close your eyes and search your mind for the various kinds of descriptive terms in which you see yourself."
W35L5 "Toward the latter part of the exercise period, however, more self-inflating descriptive terms may well cross your mind."
W35L7 "They will occur to you as various situations, personalities, and events in which you figure cross your mind."
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."
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."
W38L4 "In the four longer practice periods, each preferably to last a full five minutes, repeat the idea for today, close your eyes, and then search your mind for any sense of loss or unhappiness of any kind, as you see it."
W38L6 "In the frequent shorter applications, apply the idea in its original form unless a specific problem concerning you or someone else arises, or comes to mind."
W39L8 "Slowly, without conscious selection and without undue emphasis on any one in particular, search your mind for every thought that stands between you and your salvation."
W39L9 "It will become much easier as your mind becomes more disciplined and less distractible."
W41L3 "It will cure all sorrow and pain and fear and loss because it will heal the mind that thought these things were real, and suffered out of its allegiance to these beliefs."
W41L4 "Nothing can destroy your peace of mind because God goes with you wherever you go."
W41L6 "Try to enter very deeply into your own mind, keeping it clear of any thoughts that might divert your attention."
W42L5 "Let them come without censoring unless you realize that your mind is merely wandering, and you have let obviously irrelevant thoughts intrude."
W42L5 "You may also reach a point where no thoughts at all seem to come to mind."
W42L5 "If such interferences occur, open your eyes and repeat the thought once more while looking slowly about; close your eyes, repeat the idea once more, and then continue to look for related thoughts in your mind."
W43L3 "Whatever you do you do in Him, because whatever you think you think with His Mind."
W43L6 "If you should find your mind wandering; if you begin to be aware of thoughts which are clearly out of accord with today's idea; or if you seem to be unable to think of anything, open your eyes, repeat the first phase; and then try the second phase again."
W44L3 "It is a particularly difficult form for the undisciplined mind because it represents a major goal of mind training."
W44L3 "It embodies precisely what the untrained mind lacks."
W44L4 "The form of exercise we will use today is the most natural and easy one in the world for the trained mind, just as it seems to be the most unnatural and difficult for the untrained mind."
W44L5 "Your mind is no longer wholly untrained."
W44L7 "Then try to sink into your mind, letting go every kind of interference and intrusions by quietly sinking past them."
W44L7 "Your mind cannot be stopped in this unless you choose to stop it."
W45L2 "You think with the Mind of God."
W45L2 "They are the same thoughts, because they are thought by the same Mind."
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."
W45L2 "They are in your mind as well, where He is."
W45L2 "As you are part of His Mind, so are your thoughts part of His Thoughts."
W45L3 "We will have to look for them in your mind, because that is where they are."
W45L3 "What is thought by the Mind of God is eternal, being part of creation."
W45L6 "Spend a fairly short period in thinking a few relevant thoughts of your own, keeping the idea in mind as you do so."
W45L6 "After you have added some four or five thoughts of your own, repeat the idea again, and tell yourself gently: "My real thoughts are in my mind."
W45L6 "Then try to go past all the unreal thoughts which cover the truth in your mind, and reach to the eternal."
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."
W45L6 "They are there in your mind now, completely unchanged."
W45L6 "They will always be in your mind, exactly as they always were."
W45L7 "Here is your mind joined with the Mind of God."
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."
W45L9 "Take a minute or two, as you repeat the idea throughout the day, to appreciate your mind's holiness."
W46L2 "Forgiveness thus undoes what fear has produced, returning the mind to the awareness of God."
W46L3 "Close your eyes as you do so, and spend a minute or two in searching your mind for those whom you have not forgiven."
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.""
W46L6 ""No fear is possible in a mind beloved of God.""
W47L7 "In the latter phase of the practice period, try to reach down into your mind to a place of real safety."
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."
W48L2 "It is particularly important that you use the idea immediately, should anything disturb your peace of mind."
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 "The part of your mind in which truth abides is in constant communication with God, whether you are aware of it or not."
W49L1 "It is the other part of your mind that functions in the world and obeys the world's laws."
W49L2 "Try to identify with the part of your mind where stillness and peace reign forever."
W49L4 "Be very still and open your mind."
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."
W50L5 "Let no idle and foolish thoughts enter to disturb the holy mind of the Son of God."
W52L3 "8) "My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.""
W52L3 "I see only my own thoughts, and my mind is preoccupied with the past."
W52L3 "Let me remember that I look on the past to prevent the present from dawning on my mind."
W52L5 "Yet my mind is part of creation and part of its Creator."
W53L4 "He is the Source of all meaning, and everything that is real is in His Mind."
W53L4 "It is in my mind too, because He created it with me."
W54L2 "Let me look on the world as the representation of my own state of mind."
W54L2 "I know that my state of mind can change."
W54L4 "It is therefore in my power to change every mind along with mine, for mine is the power of God."
W55L5 "Let me open my mind to its real purpose by withdrawing the one I have given it, and learning the truth about it."
W56L5 "30) "God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.""
W56L5 "In my own mind, behind all my insane thoughts of separation and attack, is the knowledge that all is one forever."
W56L5 "It has been kept for me in the Mind of God, Who has not left His Thoughts."
W57L5 "35) "My mind is part of God's."
W59L5 "45) "God is the Mind with which I think.""
W59L5 "I have no thoughts apart from Him because I have no mind apart from His."
W59L5 "As part of His Mind, my thoughts are His and His Thoughts are mine."
W61L5 "Let a few related thoughts come to you, and repeat the idea to yourself if your mind wanders away from the central thought."
W62L3 "It will remove all sense of weakness, strain and fatigue from your mind."
W62L6 "Let related thoughts come freely, for your heart will recognize these words, and in your mind is the awareness that they are true."
W63L3 "And throughout the day, we will repeat this as often as we can: "The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness."
W64L8 "This will be difficult at first particularly, since you are not proficient in the mind discipline which it requires."
W65L2 "This is the only way in which you can find peace of mind."
W65L4 "This is part of the long range disciplinary training which your mind needs so that the Holy Spirit can use it consistently for the purpose He shares with you."
W65L5 "Then close your eyes, repeat the idea to yourself once again, and watch your mind carefully to catch whatever thoughts cross it."
W66L7 "We have seen that there are only two parts of your mind."
W66L9 "Think also about the many forms which the illusion of your function has taken in your mind, and the many ways in which you try to find salvation under the ego's guidance."
W67L3 "And somewhere in your mind It is there for you to find."
W67L5 "You need to hear the truth about yourself as frequently as possible, because your mind is so preoccupied with false self-images."
W68L1 "It is the decision to let the ego rule your mind, and to condemn the body to death."
W68L2 "Shut off from your Self, Who remains aware of His likeness to His Creator, your Self seems to sleep, while the part of your mind that weaves illusions in its sleep appears to be awake."
W68L5 "Begin today's extended practice period by searching your mind for those against whom you hold what you regard as major grievances."
W69L4 "Think of your mind as a vast round area, surrounded by a layer of heavy dark clouds."
W69L5 "Reach out and touch them in your mind."
W69L7 "Try, as you attempt to go through the clouds to the light, to hold this confidence in your mind."
W69L7 "Try to keep the thought clearly in mind that what you undertake with God must succeed."
W70L1 "You see neither guilt nor salvation as in your own mind, and nowhere else."
W70L1 "When you realize that all guilt is solely an invention of your mind, you must also realize that guilt and salvation must be in the same place."
W70L3 "It may not, however, be clear to you why the recognition that guilt is in your own mind entails the realization that salvation is there as well."
W70L3 "That is the way your mind has worked, but hardly His."
W71L2 "The change of mind that is necessary for salvation is thus demanded of everyone and everything except yourself."
W71L3 "The role assigned to your own mind in this plan, then, is simply to determine what other than itself must change if you are to be saved."
W72L2 "For it is this wish which seems to surround the mind with a body, keeping it separate and alone, and unable to reach other minds except through the body which was made to imprison it."
W72L8 "Our upside-down perception has been ruinous to our peace of mind."
W73L5 "Grievances darken your mind, and you look out on a darkened world."
W73L10 "After reminding yourself of this and determining to keep your will clearly in mind, tell yourself with gentle firmness and quiet certainty: "I will there be light."
W74L3 "During this introductory phase, be sure to deal quickly with any conflict thoughts that may cross your mind."
W74L5 "After you have cleared your mind in this way, close your eyes and try to experience the peace to which your reality entitles you."
W75L5 "Keep a completely open mind, washed of all past ideas and clean of every concept you have made."
W76L5 "The body is endangered by the mind that hurts itself."
W76L5 "The body suffers that the mind will fail to see it is the victim of itself."
W76L5 "The body's suffering is a mask the mind holds up to hide what really suffers."
W76L10 "Dismiss all foolish magical beliefs today, and hold your mind in silent readiness to hear the Voice that speaks the truth to you."
W78L5 "You know the one to choose; his name has crossed your mind already."
W78L6 "We will attempt to hold him in our mind, first as you now consider him."
W78L7 "The body's eyes are closed, and as you think of him who grieved you, let your mind be shown the light in him beyond your grievances."
W80R22 "Repeat the first phase if you find your mind wandering, but try to spend the major part of the practice period listening quietly but attentively."
W82L1 "63) "The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.""
W82L3 "Suggestions for specific forms for applying this idea are: "Let peace extend from my mind to yours, (name)" "I share the light of the world with you, (name)" "Through my forgiveness I can see this as it is.""
W85L5 "It has not left its Source and so it cannot have left my mind."
W91L5 "Faith goes to what you want, and you instruct your mind accordingly."
W91L7 "You need to be aware of what the Holy Spirit uses to replace the image of a body in your mind."
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."
W93L12 "And you can do much today to bring the conviction to your mind that the idea for the day is true indeed."
W95L4 "It is difficult at this point not to allow your mind to wander if it undertakes extended attempts."
W95L4 "You have seen the extent of your lack of mental discipline, and of your need for mind training."
W95L11 "Begin the longer practice periods with this assurance, given to your mind with all the certainty that you can give: "I am One Self, united with my Creator, At one with every aspect of creation, And limitless in power and in peace.""
W95L12 "Then close your eyes and tell yourself again, slowly and thoughtfully, attempting to allow the meaning of the words to sink into your mind, replacing false ideas: "I am One Self.""
W95L14 "You are One Self, and it is given you to feel this Self within you, and to cast all your illusions out of the One Mind Which is this Self, the holy truth in you."
W95L16 "Repeat today's idea as frequently as possible, and understand each time you do so, someone hears the voice of hope, the stirring of the truth within his mind, the gentle rustling of the wings of peace."
W96L1 "Although you are One Self, you experience yourself as two; as both good and evil, loving and hating, mind and body."
W96L4 "A mind and body cannot both exist."
W96L4 "If you are physical your mind is gone from your self-concept, for it has no place in which it could be really part of you."
W96L5 "Spirit makes use of mind as means to find Its Self-expression."
W96L5 "And the mind that serves the Spirit is at peace and filled with joy."
W96L5 "Yet mind can also see itself divorced from Spirit, and perceive itself within a body it confuses with itself."
W96L6 "Yet mind apart from Spirit cannot think."
W96L7 "Your Self retains Its Thoughts, and They remain within your mind and in the Mind of God."
W96L7 "The Holy Spirit holds salvation in your mind, and offers it the way to peace."
W96L8 "We will attempt today to find this Thought, Whose presence in your mind is guaranteed by Him Who speaks to you from your One Self."
W96L8 "Our hourly five minute practicing will be a search for Him within your mind."
W96L8 "Salvation comes from this One Self through Him Who is the bridge between your mind and It."
W96L9 "Wait patiently, and let Him speak to you about your Self, and what your mind can do, restored to It and free to serve Its Will."
W96L9 "These are your own real thoughts you have denied, and let your mind go wandering in a world of dreams, to find illusions in their place."
W96L10 "If you succeed, the Thoughts that come to you will tell you you are saved, and that your mind has found the function that it sought to lose."
W96L10 "Your mind will bless all things."
W96L11 "Perhaps your mind remains uncertain yet a little while."
W96L11 "Every time you spend five minutes of the hour seeking Him Who joins your mind and Self, you offer Him another treasure to be kept for you."
W96L12 "Each time today you tell your frantic mind salvation comes from your One Self, you lay another treasure in your growing store."

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?"
W99L3 "The mind which sees illusions thinks them real."

W104L1 "They are not welcomed gladly by a mind which has instead received the gifts it made where His belong, as substitutes for them."
W104L5 "This reminder will we bring to mind as often as we can: "I seek but what belongs to me in truth."

W106L1 "If you will lay aside the ego's voice however loudly it may seem to call; if you will not accept its petty gifts which give you nothing that you really want; if you will listen with an open mind which has not told you what salvation is; then you will hear the mighty Voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in Its messages."
W107L2 "Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is?"

W121L2 "The unforgiving mind is sad, without the hope of respite and release from pain."
W121L3 "The unforgiving mind is torn with doubt, confused about itself and all it sees, afraid and angry, weak and blustering, afraid to go ahead, afraid to stay, afraid to waken or to go to sleep, afraid of every sound, yet more afraid of stillness; terrified of darkness, yet more terrified at the approach of light."

W128L7 "Open your mind to Him."
W128L8 "Protect your mind throughout the day as well."
W128L8 "And when you think you see some value in an aspect or an image of the world, refuse to lay this chain upon your mind, and tell yourself with quiet certainty: "This will not tempt me to delay myself."
W129L5 "Here is the world that comes to take its place as you unbind your mind from little things the world sets forth to keep you prisoner there."

W131L9 "Leave foolish thoughts like these behind today, and turn your mind to true ideas instead."

W131L11 "There is a door beneath them in your mind which you could not completely lock to hide what lies beyond."
W132L2 "Yet is salvation easily achieved, for anyone is free to change his mind, and all his thoughts change with it."

W132L4 "Change but your mind on what you want to see, and all the world must change accordingly."

W132L5 "It is not pride that tells you that you made the world you see, and that it changes as you change your mind."
W132L10 "To free the world from every kind of pain is but to change your mind about yourself."
W132L10 "There is no world apart from your ideas because ideas leave not their source, and you maintain the world within your mind in thought."
W132L13 "Release your mind, and you will look upon a world released."
W132L15 "Then merely rest, alert but with no strain, and let your mind in quietness be changed so that the world is freed along with you."
W133L2 "When you let your mind be drawn to bodily concerns, to things you buy, to eminence as valued by the world, you ask for sorrow, not for happiness."
W133L8 "What attracts your mind to it?"
W134L3 "This twisted viewpoint but reflects the hold that the idea of sin retains as yet upon your mind as you regard yourself."
W134L9 "When you feel that you are tempted to accuse someone of sin in any form, do not allow your mind to dwell on what you think he did, for this is self-deception."
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."
W134L12 "He can remove the ponderous and useless armor made to chain his mind to fear and misery."
W134L13 "And yet it joins your mind with the reality in you."
W134L16 "Then choose one brother as He will direct, and catalogue his "sins" as one by one they cross your mind."
W134L18 "When this occurs, allow your mind to see through this illusion as you tell yourself: "Let me perceive forgiveness as it is."
W135L7 "It is your mind which gave the body all the functions that you see in it, and set its value far beyond a little pile of dust and water."
W135L8 "It will be strong and healthy if the mind does not abuse it by assigning it to roles it cannot fill, to purposes beyond its scope, and to exalted aims which it cannot accomplish."
W135L9 "The body, valueless and hardly worth the least defense, need merely be perceived as quite apart from you, and it becomes a healthy, serviceable instrument through which the mind can operate until its usefulness is over."
W135L10 "Defend the body and you have attacked your mind."
W135L10 "You will not see the mind as separate from bodily conditions."
W135L10 "And you will impose upon the body all the pain that comes from the conception of the mind as limited and fragile, and apart from other minds and separate from its Source."
W135L11 "You offer it protection of a kind from which it gains no benefit at all, but merely adds to your distress of mind."
W135L12 "A healed mind does not plan."
W135L13 "A healed mind is relieved from the belief that it must plan, although it cannot know the outcome which is best, the means by which it is achieved, nor how to recognize the problem that the plan is made to solve."
W135L14 "Enslavement of the body to the plans the unhealed mind sets up to save itself must make the body sick."
W135L14 "For everything the mind employs for this will function flawlessly, and with the strength that has been given it and cannot fail."
W135L15 "They are the means by which a frightened mind would undertake its own protection at the cost of truth."
W135L16 "The mind engaged in planning for itself is occupied in setting up control of future happenings."
W135L16 "It overlooks the present, for it rests on the idea the past has taught enough to let the mind direct its future course."
W135L17 "The mind that plans is thus refusing to allow for change."
W136L4 "But afterwards your plan requires that you must forget you made it, so it seems to be external to your own intent; a happening beyond your state of mind, an outcome with a real effect on you, instead of one effected by your self."
W136L7 "It is a choice you make, a plan you lay when, for an instant, truth arises in your own deluded mind, and all your world appears to totter and prepare to fall."
W136L14 "And it comes to any mind that would lay down its arms and cease to play with folly."
W136L15 "I will accept the truth of what I am, And let my mind be wholly healed today.""
W136L16 "Healing will flash across your open mind as peace and truth arise to take the place of war and vain imaginings."
W136L16 "There will be no dim figures from your dreams, nor their obscure and meaningless pursuits with double purposes insanely sought, remaining in your mind."
W136L17 "No response at all is in the mind to what the body does."
W136L19 "If you let your mind harbor attack thoughts, yield to judgment or make plans against uncertainties to come, you have again misplaced yourself, and made a bodily identity which will attack the body, for the mind is sick."
W136L19 "And my mind Cannot attack."
W137L2 "It gives the body final power to make separation real and keep the mind in solitary prison, split apart and held in pieces by a solid wall of sickened flesh which it can not surmount."
W137L6 "The body seems to be more solid and more stable than the mind."
W137L10 "And as you let yourself be healed, you see all those around you, or who cross your mind, or whom you touch, or those who seem to have no contact with you, healed along with you."
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."
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.""
W138L8 "These mad beliefs can gain unconscious hold of great intensity, and grip the mind with terror and anxiety so strong that it will not relinquish its ideas about its own protection."
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."
W138L12 "I make it now and will not change my mind, Because it is the only thing I want.""
W139L5 "But you have split your mind into what knows and does not know the truth."
W139L7 "It is set forever in the holy Mind of God and in your own."
W139L11 "We can remember it for everyone, for in creation are all minds as one, and in our memory is the recall how dear our brothers are to us in truth, how much a part of us is every mind, how faithful they have really been to us, and how our Father's Love contains us all."
W139L12 "For several minutes let your mind be cleared of all the foolish cobwebs which the world would weave around the holy Son of God and learn the fragile nature of the chains which seem to keep the knowledge of yourself apart from your awareness, as you say: "I will accept Atonement for myself, For I remain as God created me.""
W140L1 "When it tries to heal the mind, it sees no separation from the body where it thinks the mind exists."
W140L2 "Yet he has not awakened from the dream, and so his mind remains exactly as it was before."
W140L3 "The dreams forgiveness lets the mind perceive do not induce another form of sleep, so that the dreamer dreams another dream."
W140L3 "His happy dreams are heralds of the dawn of truth upon the mind."
W140L4 "For the mind which understands that sickness can be nothing but a dream is not deceived by forms the dream may take."
W140L7 "The mind that brings illusions to the truth is really changed."
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.""
W140R42 "It is this Thought Which fully guarantees salvation to the Son, for in his mind no thoughts can dwell but those his Father shares."
W140R44 "And yet your mind holds only what you think with God."
W140R45 "Begin each day with time devoted to the preparation of your mind to learn what each idea you will review that day can offer you in freedom and in peace."
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."
W140R47 "Each hour of the day bring to your mind the Thought with which the day began, and spend a quiet moment with It."
W140R49 "And as you give your mind to the ideas for the day again before you sleep, His gratitude surrounds you in the peace wherein He wills you be forever, and are learning now to claim again as your inheritance."
W151L9 "Accept His word of what you are, for He bears witness to your beautiful creation and the Mind Whose Thought created your reality."
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 "And as each thought is thus transformed, it takes on healing power from the Mind Which saw the truth in it, and failed to be deceived by what was falsely added."
W151L16 "And everyone will share the thoughts with you which He has retranslated in your mind."
W152L2 "Can fear and sickness enter in a mind where love and perfect holiness abide?"
W152L5 "And that includes all shifts in feeling, alterations in conditions of the body and the mind, in all awareness and in all response."
W152L6 "What can He know of the ephemeral, the sinful and the guilty, the afraid, the suffering and lonely, and the mind which lives within a body that must die?"
W153L1 "No peace of mind is possible where danger threatens thus."
W153L2 "The mind is now confused, and knows not where to turn to find escape from its imaginings."
W153L3 "Attack, defense; defense, attack, become the circles of the hours and the days which bind the mind in heavy bands of steel with iron overlaid, returning but to start again."
W153L3 "There seems to be no break nor ending in the ever-tightening grip of imprisonment upon the mind."
W153L18 "Nor would you keep your mind away from Him a moment, even though your time is spent in offering salvation to the world."
W153L20 "Our practicing will now begin to take the earnestness of love to help you keep your mind from wandering from its intent."
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."

W156L8 "I light the world, I light my mind and all The minds which God created one with me.""
W157L4 "Nothing is needed but today's idea to light your mind, and let it rest in still anticipation and in quiet joy wherein you quickly leave the world behind."
W157L5 "For your experience today will so transform your mind that it becomes the touchstone for the holy Thoughts of God."
W158L1 "The knowledge that you are a mind, in Mind and purely mind, sinless forever, wholly unafraid because you were created out of Love."
W158L2 "The revelation that the Father and the Son are One will come in time to every mind."
W158L2 "Yet is that time determined by the mind itself, not taught."

W161L2 "Complete abstraction is the natural condition of the mind."
W161L2 "All hearing but brings to your mind the sounds it wants to hear."

W161L4 "The mind that taught itself to think specifically can no longer grasp abstraction in the sense that it is all-encompassing."
W161L6 "The body is the target for attack, for no one thinks he hates a mind."
W161L6 "Yet what but mind directs the body to attack?"
W162L1 "This single thought, held firmly in the mind, would save the world."
W162L3 "Holy indeed is he who makes these words his own; arising with them in his mind, recalling them throughout the day, at night bringing them with him as he goes to sleep."

W162L4 "Christ's vision has restored your sight by salvaging your mind."

W165L3 "Who would deny his safety and his peace, his joy, his healing and his peace of mind, his quiet rest, his calm awakening, if he but recognized where they abide?"
W165L4 "Nor need you perceive how great the gift, how changed your mind will be, before it comes to you."
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 "Now is Christ's power in your mind to heal as you were healed."
W166L2 "Impossible indeed; but every mind which looks upon the world and judges it as certain, solid, trustworthy and true believes in two creators; or in one, himself alone."
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 "Be witness in your happiness to how transformed the mind becomes which chooses to accept His gifts and feel the touch of Christ."
W167L3 "A thought is in the mind."
W167L3 "It can be then applied as mind directs it."
W167L3 "The emphasis this course has placed on that idea is due to its centrality in our attempts to change your mind about yourself."
W167L6 "The mind can think it sleeps, but that is all."
W167L6 "What is alien to the mind does not exist, because it has no source."
W167L6 "For mind creates all things that are, and cannot give them attributes it lacks, nor change its own eternal, mindful state."
W167L6 "What seems to die is but the sign of mind asleep."
W167L7 "Yet mind is mind awake or sleeping."
W167L8 "God creates only mind awake."
W167L9 "When the mind elects to be what it is not, and to assume an alien power which it does not have, a foreign state it cannot enter, or a false condition not within its Source, it merely seems to go to sleep a while."
W167L9 "When the mind awakes, it but continues as it always was."
W167L12 "A sleeping mind must waken as it sees its own perfection mirroring the Lord of Life so perfectly it fades into what is reflected there."
