T13C6 "Those whom you see as guilty, become the witnesses to guilt IN YOU, and you WILL see it there, for it IS there, until it is undone."
T13C7 "For while you see one spot of guilt within you, YOU WILL NOT SEE THE LIGHT."
T13C7 "You throw a dark veil over it, and cannot see it, BECAUSE YOU CANNOT LOOK WITHIN."
T13C7 "You are afraid of what you would see there, but it is NOT there."
T13C7 "If you would look within, you would see only the Atonement, shining in quiet and in peace, upon the altar to your Father."
T13C7 "Instead, it bids you look upon your brothers, AND SEE THE GUILT IN THEM."
T13C8 "For those who see their brothers dark, and guilty in the dark in which they shroud them, are too afraid to look upon the light within."
T13C8 "Can YOU see guilt where God KNOWS there is perfect innocence?"
T13D1 "You are accustomed to the notion that the mind can see the source of pain where it is not."
T13D3 "You will see guilt in that relationship, BECAUSE YOU PUT IT THERE."
T13D4 "Can you EXPECT to use your brothers as a means to solve the past, and still to see them as they really ARE?"
T13D5 "When everyone is welcome to you as you would have YOURSELF be welcome to your Father, you will see no guilt in you."
T13D5 "For you will have ACCEPTED the Atonement, which shone within you all the while you dreamed of guilt, and would not look within and SEE it."
T13D7 "Give NO reality to guilt, and see NO reason for it."
T13D7 "He would have you see and teach as He does, and through Him."
T13D9 "Nothing can keep FROM you what Christ would have you see."
T13D9 "There is no other way to look within, and see the light of love shining as steadily, and as surely, as God Himself has always loved His Son."
T13D9 "You who have ALWAYS loved your Father can have no fear, for ANY reason, to look within, and see your holiness."
T13D10 "All else He would have you see."
T13D11 "No-one who condemns a brother, can see HIMSELF as guiltless in the peace of God."
T13D12 "But look upon yourself, and gladness and appreciation for what you will see, will banish guilt forever."
T13D14 "See only praise of Him in what He has created, for He will never cease His praise of YOU."
T13D15 "But if he could but realize the war is between forces that are real and UNREAL powers, he could look upon himself, and SEE his freedom."
T13F5 "You were created ONLY to create, neither to see NOR do."
T13F6 "His MESSAGE is not indirect, but He must introduce the simple truth into a thought-system which has become so twisted and so complex, that you CANNOT SEE that it means nothing."
T13F6 "But YOU, who CANNOT undo what you have made, nor escape the heavy burden of it's dullness that lies upon your minds, cannot see THROUGH it."
T13G3 "The contrast between what is true, and what is not, is PERFECTLY apparent, yet you do NOT see it."
T13G5 "And as it shines, YOUR BROTHERS see it, and, realizing that this light is NOT what you have made, they see in you MORE than YOU see."
T13G5 "The heavy chains which SEEM to bind them unto despair, they do NOT see as nothing, until YOU bring the light TO them."
T13G5 "And THEN they see the chains have disappeared, and so they MUST have been nothing."
T13G6 "And YOU will see it WITH them."
T13G6 "But see that this HAS BEEN your goal, and RECOGNIZE how foolish it has been."
T13H2 "You do NOT want either alone, for without both, you do not see YOURSELVES as whole, and therefore happy."
T13H8 "The power that God has given to His Son IS his, and nothing else can His Son see, or choose to look upon, without imposing on HIMSELF the penalty of guilt, IN PLACE of all the happy teaching the Holy Spirit would gladly offer him."
T13H9 "But those who believe they are guilty, WILL respond to guilt, because THEY THINK IT IS SALVATION, and will NOT refuse to see it, and side WITH it."
T13I1 "When you accept a brother's guiltlessness, you will SEE Atonement in him."
T13I1 "For, by proclaiming it in HIM, you make it YOURS, and you WILL see what you sought."
T13I1 "You will not see the symbol of your brother's guiltlessness shining within him, while you still believe IT IS NOT THERE."
T13I1 "Grant it to him, and you will see the truth of what you have acknowledged."
T14B8 "You will not see yourself BEYOND the power of God if you teach only this."
T14B11 "But you RESTORE guiltlessness to whomever you SEE as guiltless."
T14B12 "Each one you see you place, within the holy circle of Atonement, or leave outside, judging him fit for crucifixion or redemption."
T14D2 "Yet you cannot know this, for, by HIDING truth in fear, you see no reason to believe the more you LOOK at fear, the LESS you see it, and the clearer WHAT IT CONCEALS becomes."
T14D7 "You will SEE how easily ALL that He asks can be accomplished."
T14D8 "For He sees FOR YOU, and unless you look WITH Him, He CANNOT see."
T14D9 "You cannot see alone."
T14D9 "It is the recognition that NOTHING you see means ANYTHING alone."
T14E6 "Clear but the mirror, and the message which shines forth from what the mirror holds out for everyone to see, NO-ONE will fail to understand."
T14E6 "Let him, then, see it in YOU, and share it WITH you."
T14F11 "If you undertake the search TOGETHER, you bring with you a light so powerful, that what you see is GIVEN meaning."
T14G4 "Do NOT attempt to understand ANY event, or ANYTHING, or ANYONE in its light, for the light of darkness, by which you TRY to see, can ONLY obscure."
T14G4 "Put no confidence at all in darkness to illuminate your understanding, for if you do, you CONTRADICT the light, and thereby THINK you see the darkness."
T14G11 "He does not see time as you do."
T14G14 "Only those who see they CANNOT know, UNLESS the effects of understanding are with them, can really learn at all."
T14G16 "But see the mighty works that He will do through you, and you MUST be convinced you did them through Him."
T15B9 "And change is an illusion, taught by those who could not see themselves as guiltless."
T15B10 "In the holy instant, in which you see yourself as bright with freedom, you WILL remember God."
T15F8 "Without the values from the past you WOULD see them all the same, and LIKE YOURSELF."
T15F8 "Nor would you see ANY separation between yourself and them."
T15F9 "For in the holy instant, FREE of the past, you see that LOVE IS IN YOU, and you HAVE no need to look WITHOUT, and snatch it guiltily from where you THOUGHT it was."
T15H12 "And you will see SAFETY IN GUILT, and DANGER IN COMMUNICATION."
T15I9 "But to SEE this, it is necessary to give up EVERY use the ego has for the body, and to accept the fact that the ego has NO purpose you would SHARE with it."
T15I11 "For the body IS little and limited, and only those whom you would see WITHOUT the limits that the ego would impose on them, can offer YOU the gift of freedom."
T15J2 "And to see me, is to see me in everyone, and offer everyone the gift you offer me."
T15J5 "You see no other alternatives."
T15J8 "For you see love AS DESTRUCTIVE, and your only question is WHO is to be destroyed, you or another?"
T15J8 "You think that everyone OUTSIDE yourself demands your sacrifice, but you do NOT see that ONLY you demand sacrifice, and ONLY of yourself."
T15J10 "But do not try to project it FROM you, and see it OUTSIDE yourself."
T15K1 "Your brothers and your Father have become VERY fearful to you, and you would bargain with them for a few special relationships, in which you think you see some scraps of safety."
T15K2 "See it not OUTSIDE of yourself, but as shining in the Heaven within, and accept it as the sign the time of Christ has come."
T15K7 "The Prince of Peace was born to re-establish the CONDITION of love, by teaching that communication remains unbroken, even if the body is destroyed, PROVIDED THAT you see NOT the body as the necessary means of communication."
T16C1 "You still think holiness is difficult, because you cannot see how it can be extended to include EVERYONE, and you HAVE learned that it MUST include everyone, to BE holy."
T16C8 "For you have many witnesses that speak of it so clearly, that only the blind and deaf could fail to see and hear them."
T16D4 "You have been VERY careful to avoid the obvious, and NOT to see the REAL cause and effect relationship that is PERFECTLY apparent."
T16E4 "This is the choice they see."
T16E11 "Hear not the call of hate, and see no fantasies."
T16E11 "See in the call of hate, and in every fantasy that rises to delay you, but the call for help, that rises ceaselessly from you to your Creator."
T16F1 "For the ego would have you see Him, AND HIM ALONE, as guilty, leaving the Sonship OPEN to attack, and unprotected against it."
T16F4 "For the ego would never have you see that the separation can ONLY BE LOSS, being the one condition in which Heaven CANNOT be."
T16F8 "Where both partners see this special self IN EACH OTHER, the EGO sees "a union made in Heaven.""
T16F11 "See how EXACTLY is this ritual enacted in the special relationship."
T16F13 "See in the special relationship nothing more than a meaningless attempt to raise other gods before Him, and, by worshipping them, to obscure THEIR tininess, AND HIS GREATNESS."
T16G4 "YOU SEE THE WORLD YOU VALUE."
T16G4 "On this side of the bridge, you see the world of separate bodies, seeking to join each other in SEPARATE UNIONS, and to become one BY LOSING."
T16G5 "Once you have crossed the bridge, the VALUE of the body is so diminished in YOUR sight, that you will see no need at all to MAGNIFY it."
T16G6 "On this side, everything you see is grossly distorted, and COMPLETELY out of perspective."
T16G9 "Only the wholly insane could look on death and suffering, sickness and despair, and see it thus."
T16G9 "See no illusion of truth and beauty there."
T17B4 "And you WILL see forgiveness where YOU have given it."
T17C1 "Nothing you see here, sleeping or waking, comes near to such loveliness, and nothing will you value like unto this, nor hold so dear."
T17C1 "FOR YOU WILL SEE THE SON OF GOD."
T17C1 "He was created to see this FOR YOU, until you learned to see it for yourself."
T17C3 "Fantasies are all undone, no-one and nothing remains still bound by them, and, by YOUR OWN forgiveness, you are FREE TO SEE."
T17C3 "And WHAT you see is only what YOU HAVE MADE, with the blessing of your forgiveness on it."
T17C5 "The real world is attained simply by the COMPLETE forgiveness of the old; the world you see WITHOUT forgiveness."
T17D3 "That is why you see, IN BOTH what is not there, and MAKE of both the slaves of vengeance."
T17D9 "And you will LET it transform the relationship, so you can see it more and more."
T17E9 "What you VALUE is the FRAME, for THERE you see no conflict."
T17E11 "But if you accept THIS gift, you will NOT see the frame at all, because the gift can only BE accepted through your willingness to focus ALL your attention ON THE PICTURE."
T17E12 "One is a tiny picture, hard to see at all beneath the heavy shadows of its enormous and disproportionate enclosure."
T17E14 "And what you SEE there, YOU will recognize as what it is; a picture of what YOU THOUGHT WAS REAL, and nothing more."
T17E14 "For, BEHIND this picture, YOU WILL SEE NOTHING."
T17F8 "For this will go, and you will see the JUSTIFICATION for your faith emerge, to bring you shining conviction."
T17F10 "For all it needs now IS your blessing, that you may see that in it rests salvation."
T17F11 "And He has NOT been lacking in appreciation for all you have done for Him, nor does He see the mistakes at all."
T17G5 "And you WILL see the outcome truly, for deception can not prevail against you."
T17G5 "Here, again, you see the OPPOSITE of the ego's way of looking."
T17G8 "As a result, YOU DO NOT SEE THE PROBLEM."
T17H1 "Yet faith MUST be where something has BEEN done, and where you SEE it done."
T17H3 "For you will see that peace and faith will not come separately."
T17H3 "See it as something ELSE, and you ARE faithless."
T17H8 "And you will see the means you once employed to lead you to illusions, transformed to means for truth."
T17I4 "And it was nothing but the intolerable strain of your refusal to give faith to truth, and see its evident reality."
T17I5 "See only this in EVERY situation, and it WILL be a means for bringing ONLY this."
T18B1 "Everything you see reflects it."
T18B2 "You have expressed surprise at hearing how VERY different is reality from what YOU see."
T18B4 "When you seem to see some twisted form of the original error rise to frighten you, say only, 'God is NOT fear, but love,' and it will disappear."
T18C3 "You do not find the differences between what you see in sleep and on awaking disturbing."
T18C3 "You recognize that what you see on waking is blotted out in dreams."
T18C5 "Dreams show you that you HAVE the power to make a world as you would have it, and that, BECAUSE you WANT it, you SEE it."
T18C5 "And WHILE you see it, you do NOT doubt that it is real."
T18C6 "And what you seem to WAKE to, is but another FORM of this same world you see in dreams."
T18C7 "And while you see more VALUE in sleeping than in waking, you will NOT let go of it."
T18C10 "You are so used to choosing between dreams, you do not see that you have made, at last, the choice between the truth and ALL ILLUSIONS."
T18D7 "Those who would see WILL see."
T18G8 "You SEE yourself as locked in a separate prison, remote and unreachable, incapable of reaching out as being reached."
T18H2 "Afterwards, you will see the body again, but never quite the same."
T18H4 "It is impossible to accept the holy instant WITHOUT RESERVATION unless, JUST FOR AN INSTANT, you are willing to see no past or future."
T18I1 "Can you who see yourselves WITHIN a body, know yourself AS AN IDEA?"
T18I1 "And while you limit your awareness to its tiny senses, you will not see the grandeur that surrounds you."
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."
T18I9 "See how life springs up everywhere!"
T18I10 "And you will RECOGNIZE yourself, and see your little garden gently transformed into the Kingdom of Heaven, with all the love of its Creator shining upon it."
T18J6 "The body cannot see this, for the body AROSE from this for its protection, which must ALWAYS depend on keeping it NOT seen."
T18J6 "Yet they will SEE what it dictates."
T18J6 "Its thinness and transparency are not apparent, until you see the light BEHIND it."
T18J6 "And then you see it as a fragile veil, before the light."
T18J7 "It gives way softly to the mountain tops that rise above it, and has no power at all to hold back anyone willing to climb above it, to see the sun."
T18J8 "Yet in this cloud bank it is easy to see a whole world rising."
T19B1 "And it IS obvious that a segment of the mind CAN see itself as SEPARATED from the Universal Purpose."
T19B2 "If, then, you SEE him as a body, YOU have established a condition in which UNITING with him becomes impossible."
T19B7 "You do NOT see how great the devastation wrought by your faithlessness."
T19B7 "For, by WITHHOLDING faith, you SEE what IS unworthy of it, and CANNOT look beyond the barrier to what is joined with YOU."
T19B8 "And in that One you see your faith is FULLY justified."
T19B10 "Faith sees him only NOW, because it looks not to the past to judge him, but would see in him ONLY what it would see in YOU."
T19B11 "But faith UNITES you in the holiness you see, NOT through the body's eyes, but in the sight of Him Who joined you, and in Whom YOU are united."
T19B13 "There will you see the miracle of your relationship, as it was MADE AGAIN through faith."
T19D3 "What you see clearly AS A MISTAKE, you WANT corrected."
T19D6 "The eyes see many things the mind corrects, and YOU respond, NOT to the eyes' illusions, BUT TO THE MIND's CORRECTIONS."
T19D6 "You SEE the line as broken, and as you shift to different aspects of the spiral, the line looks different."
T19D7 "This One can teach you how to look on time differently, and to see BEYOND it."
T19D11 "You SEE it still, because you do not realize that its FOUNDATION has gone."
T19D12 "You will NOT see it long."
T19D12 "In the holy instant, you will see the smile of Heaven shining on BOTH of you."
T19D13 "Forget what you HAVE seen, and raise your eyes, in faith, to what you now CAN see."
T19D13 "Look not for what has been REMOVED, but for the glory that has been RESTORED, for you to see."
T19D16 "You can indeed be sure of NOTHING you see OUTSIDE you, but of this you CAN be sure."
T19D18 "You CANNOT see the Holy Spirit, but you CAN see your brothers truly."
T19D18 "And the light in them will show you all that you NEED to see."
T19E10 "See but how easily this little wisp is lifted up and carried away, never to return."
T19F1 "As love must look past fear, so must fear see love not."
T19F3 "What fear DEMANDS, love cannot even SEE."
T19F4 "And in their savage search for sin, they pounce on any living thing they see, and carry it screaming to their master, to be devoured."
T19F6 "If you send THEM forth, they will see only the blameless and the beautiful, the gentle and the kind."
T19F6 "For THEY see the world as kind."
T19F7 "If you send forth ONLY the messengers the Holy Spirit gave you, WANTING no messages but theirs, you will see fear no more."
T19F7 "And none you cannot ask love's messengers to REMOVE from it, and see it still."
T19G2 "Do you not see that this is the belief in DEATH?"
T19G3 "It is only the messengers of FEAR that see the body, for they look for what can suffer."
T19G7 "Would you see in me the symbol of guilt, or of the END of guilt?"
T19G7 "Remembering that what I signify to you, you see within YOURSELF?"
T19H3 "Only the mind can set a purpose, and only mind can see the means for its accomplishment, and justify its use."
T19I2 "See him throw aside the black robe he was wearing to his funeral, and hear him laugh at death."
T19J5 "Those who fear death see not how often and how loudly they CALL to it, and bid it come to SAVE them from communication."
T19J9 "Behold this infant, to whom you gave a resting place by your forgiveness of EACH OTHER, and see in it the Will of God."
T19J11 "Let me not see it as a sign of sin and death, nor use it for destruction."
T19K1 "What would you see, WITHOUT the fear of death?"
T19K4 "See how the belief in death would seem to 'save' you."
T19L1 "IT would not have you see its weakness and learn it has NO power to KEEP you from the truth."
T19L1 "But first, lift up your eyes and look upon each other in innocence, born of COMPLETE forgiveness of each other's illusions, and through the eyes of faith, which see them not."
T19L3 "Here, with the journey's end before you, you SEE its purpose."
T19L5 "You see his madness, which you hate because you SHARE in it."
T19L8 "Forgive the sins your brother THINKS he has committed, and all the guilt YOU see in him."
T19L10 "Look on your brother, and see in him the gift of God you would RECEIVE."
T19L11 "See him as guiltless as I look on you, and OVERLOOK the sins he THINKS he sees within himself."
T19L14 "Yet it is GIVEN you to SEE this purpose in your holy Friend, and RECOGNIZE it as your own."
T20B4 "If you see glimpses of the face of Christ behind the veil, looking between the snow white petals of the lilies you have received and GIVEN as your gift, you will behold each other's face, and RECOGNIZE it."
T20C1 "See all the useless things made for its eyes to see."
T20C3 "And each has set a light upon his altar, that they may see what he has placed upon it, and take it for their own."
T20C4 "But look you first upon the altar in your chosen home, and see what you have laid upon it, to offer me."
T20C5 "Look you still closer at them now, and you will see your altar is no longer what it was."
T20C5 "And they CAN see but thorns."
T20C5 "And what enables Him to SEE His purpose shine forth from every altar, now is yours as well as His."
T20C6 "And yet, I cannot USE your gift of lilies, while you see them not."
T20C6 "It has been given you to see no thorns, no strangers, and NO obstacles to peace."
T20C7 "For you have asked for AND BEEN GIVEN the strength to look upon this final obstacle, and see no thorns nor nails to crucify the Son of God, and crown him king of death."
T20C8 "You will not see it with the body's eyes."
T20D4 "It is a picture of what you think YOU are; of how you SEE yourself."
T20D4 "And they look out in sorrow from what is sad WITHIN, and see the sadness THERE."
T20D5 "The world you see is but a judgment on YOURSELF."
T20D6 "The world the holy see is one with them, just as the world the ego looks upon is like itself."
T20D6 "The world the holy see is beautiful, because they see their innocence in it."
T20D7 "The world BELIEVES in sin, but the belief that made it as you see it, is NOT outside you."
T20D9 "Did you see the holiness that shone in both of you, to bless the other?"
T20D12 "The innocent see safety, and the pure see God within His Son, and look unto the Son to lead them to the Father."
T20D12 "See HIM as sinless, and there can BE no fear in you."
T20E2 "And therein lies your need to see your brother sinless."
T20E2 "See sin in him INSTEAD, and Heaven is lost to YOU."
T20E2 "But see him as he IS, and what is yours shines from him to you."
T20E4 "And is it THIS that you would see within your Savior FROM insanity?"
T20E4 "He is as free from this as you are, and in the freedom that you see in HIM, you see your own."
T20E5 "Nothing but this can touch them, for they see ONLY this, sharing their power according to the Will of God."
T20E5 "See, then, the power of sinlessness within your brother, and share with him the power of the RELEASE from sin you offered HIM."
T20E6 "And each one FINDS his Savior, when he is ready to look upon the face of Christ, and see Him sinless."
T20E6 "For He Who knows the rest will see to it WITHOUT your help."
T20F3 "Do you recognize the fear that rises from the meaningless attempt to judge what lies so far BEYOND your judgment you cannot even SEE it?"
T20F3 "Judge not what is invisible to you, or you will NEVER see it."
T20F3 "It will be GIVEN you to see your brother's worth, when all you WANT for him is peace."
T20F4 "Who would SEE the face of Christ, and yet insist that judgment still has meaning?"
T20F4 "For this insistence is of those who do NOT see."
T20G3 "They smile on no-one, and those who smile on them they do not see."
T20G4 "And its relationships MUST be unholy, for what they ARE, it does not even SEE."
T20G6 "But what you do NOT realize is what you fear within your brother, and would not SEE in HIM, is what makes God seem fearful and kept unknown."
T20H4 "It IS impossible to see your brother sinless, and yet to look upon him as a body."
T20H4 "To see a SINLESS body is impossible."
T20H5 "You either SEE, or not."
T20H6 "He does not REALLY see him as sinful; he does not see him at all."
T20H8 "Attempt to see him not in darkness, for your imaginings about him WILL seem real there."
T20H8 "Such was your PURPOSE, and while this purpose seems to have ANY meaning, the means for its attainment will be evaluated as WORTH the seeing, and so you will NOT see."
T20H9 "Your question should not be, "How can I see my brother without the body?""
T20H9 "Ask only, "Do I REALLY wish to see him sinless?""
T20I3 "All this is GIVEN you, who would but SEE your brother sinless."
T20I4 "It is HIS desire to see his sinlessness, as it is YOURS."
T20I4 "And bless the Son of God in your relationship, nor see in him what you have MADE of him."
T20I4 "And as you look upon each other, you will see an altar to your Father, holy as Heaven, glowing with radiant purity, and sparkling with the shining lilies you laid upon it."
T20I7 "All that could SAVE you, you will never see."
T20I8 "Could you have FAITH in what you see, if you ACCEPTED this?"
T20I8 "AND WOULD YOU SEE IT?"
T20I9 "Nothing is in between, and which you choose determines what you see."
T20I9 "For what you see is merely HOW you elect to meet your goal."
T20I12 "And NEVER need you think that there IS something else for you to see."
T21A1 "Projection makes perception; the world you see is what you GAVE it, nothing more than that."
T21A2 "See IT as damned, and all you see is what YOU did to hurt the Son of God."
T21A2 "If you see holiness and hope, you joined the Will of God to set him free."
T21A2 "And you will see the WITNESS to the choice you made, and learn from this to RECOGNIZE the one you made."
T21A2 "The world you see but shows you how much joy YOU have allowed yourself to see in you, and to accept as YOURS."
T21B1 "Never forget the world the sightless "see" MUST be imagined."
T21B1 "You do NOT see."
T21B2 "You can be SHOWN which doors are open, and you can SEE where safety lies."
T21B3 "And, STILL believing this, they hold those lessons dear, and cling to them BECAUSE they cannot see."
T21B4 "And so they keep the world they learned to "see" in their imagination, believing that their choice is that, or nothing."
T21B4 "And so it is with all who see the body as all they have, and all their brothers have."
T21B6 "Listen, and see if you remember an ancient song you knew so long ago, and held more dear than any melody you taught yourself to cherish since."
T21B6 "Beyond the body, beyond the sun and stars, past EVERYTHING you see and yet somehow familiar, is an arc of golden light that stretches, as you look, into a great and shining circle."
T21B8 "And now the blind can see, for that same song they sing in honor of their Creator, gives praise to them as well."
T21B8 "And, when you see it in each other, you ARE remembering for everyone."
T21C2 "Say ONLY this, but MEAN it with NO reservations, for here the power of salvation lies: "I AM responsible for what I see."
T21C4 "WITHHOLD it, and you keep the world as now you see it."
T21C4 "GIVE IT AWAY, and everything YOU see goes with it."
T21C4 "And CAN accept correction, if it is willing to see that it was wrong."
T21C5 "The world you see is but the idle witness that you were RIGHT."
T21C5 "See only this, and you will also see how circular the reasoning on which your "seeing" rests."
T21C5 "And, as you look upon the change in HIM, it will be given you to see it in YOURSELF."
T21C6 "Perhaps you do not see the need for you to give this little offering."
T21C6 "And, very simply, see in it the whole exchange of separation for salvation."
T21C8 "Be willing, for an instant, to leave your altars free of what YOU placed upon them and what is REALLY there you CANNOT fail to see."
T21C8 "Then only is it possible to look within and see what MUST be there, plainly in sight, and wholly INDEPENDENT of inference and judgment."
T21C9 "What you desire, you WILL see."
T21C11 "It is as needful that you recognize you MADE the world you see, as that you recognize that you did NOT create yourself."
T21C11 "And if you think what YOU have made can TELL you what you see and feel, and place your faith in its ability to do so, you ARE denying your Creator, and BELIEVING that you made yourself."
T21C13 "SEE what "proves" otherwise, and you DENY your whole reality."
T21D10 "Except you do not realize you CANNOT see, BECAUSE of it."
T21D12 "And give it power to serve as means to help the blind to see."
T21E1 "You are indeed afraid to look within, and see the sin you THINK is there."
T21E1 "Your faith that sin is there but witnesses your desire that it BE there to see."
T21E1 "And its unknown "Enemy," Whom it cannot even see, it FEARS."
T21E3 "And your belief in sin has been ALREADY shaken, nor are you now ENTIRELY unwilling to look within and see it NOT."
T21E4 "How otherwise COULD it have been willing to see the Holy Spirit's purpose as its own?"
T21F2 "For, on the voice you choose to hear, and on the sights you choose to see, depends ENTIRELY your whole belief of what you ARE."
T21F3 "Listen to what the ego says, and see what it DIRECTS you see, and it is sure that you will see YOURSELF as tiny, vulnerable, and afraid."
T21F9 "What reason points to, you CAN see, because the witnesses on its behalf ARE clear."
T21G1 "Reason cannot see sin, but CAN see errors, and LEADS to their correction."
T21G2 "And who can see a sinful world, and look upon himself APART from it?"
T21G3 "Yet it is easy to LEAVE the home of madness, if you see reason."
T21G4 "Madness and reason see the same things, but it is certain that they look upon them differently."
T21G4 "For they BELIEVE they see the body, and LET their madness tell them it is real."
T21G5 "To see the body as a barrier between what REASON tells you MUST be joined, MUST be insane."
T21G5 "Nor COULD you see it, if you heard the voice of reason."
T21H1 "Do you not see that all your misery comes from the strange belief that you are powerless?"
T21H1 "And only those who FIRST believe that they are little, could SEE attraction there."
T21H1 "And you are FOR him or AGAINST him; either you love him or attack him; protect his unity, or see him shattered and slain by your attack."
T21H2 "And those who see themselves as helpless MUST believe that they are NOT the Son of God."
T21H6 "It is NOT necessary that he understand HOW he can see it."
T21H6 "And do I WANT to see what I denied, BECAUSE it is the truth?""
T21H8 "But what you WANT to see, MUST be your choice."
T21H9 "And then it WILL be clear to you that, as you look on the EFFECTS of sin, in ANY form, all you need do is simply ask yourself, "Is this what I WOULD see?""
T21H9 "And if you CHOOSE to see a world WITHOUT an enemy, in which you are NOT helpless, the MEANS to see it WILL be given you."
T21H10 "And you can want to see a sinless world, and let an "enemy" tempt you to use the body's eyes, and CHANGE what you desire."
T21H11 "Yet the last question adds the WISH FOR CONSTANCY in your desire to see the real world, so the desire becomes the ONLY one you have."
T21I2 "It comes as surely unto those who see the final question is NECESSARY to the rest, as peace MUST come to those who choose to heal, and NOT to judge."
T22A1 "No two can look on sin TOGETHER, for they COULD never see it in the same place and time."
T22A2 "Only the lonely and alone, who see their brothers DIFFERENT from themselves."
T22B1 "And you HAVE faith in this, and see much evidence on its behalf."
T22B2 "Reason would tell you that the world you see through eyes that are not yours, MUST make no sense to you."
T22B7 "And the strange, shifting ones he sees about him will become to him his comforters, and he will recognize his home, and see them there WITH him."
T22C2 "All that is possible in the dark world of misery is to select some ASPECTS out of it, see them as DIFFERENT, and DEFINE the difference as joy."
T22C5 "The ego will assure you now that it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to see NO guilt in anyone."
T22C9 "And here we see again another form of the same fundamental illusion we have seen many times before."
T22D1 "You can SEE reason."
T22D2 "SHARE this belief, and reason will be unable to SEE your errors, and make way for their correction."
T22D2 "Reason CAN see the difference between sin and mistakes, because it WANTS correction."
T22D5 "The body's eyes see ONLY form."
T22D5 "They cannot see BEYOND what they were MADE to see."
T22D5 "And they were made to look on error, and NOT see past it."
T22D6 "Yet how can sight which stops at nothingness, as if it WERE a solid wall, see truly?"
T22D6 "These eyes, made NOT to see, will NEVER see."
T22D6 "What was its maker's GOAL, but not to see?"
T22D6 "See how the body's eyes rest on externals, and CANNOT go beyond."
T22D7 "And is Not THERE to see."
T22D7 "And, IF you see it, you MUST be mistaken, for you are seeing what can NOT be real, as if it WERE."
T22D8 "You gave him not his holiness, but tried to see your sins in him, to save yourself."
T22D9 "And so it MUST become impossible for each to see HIMSELF as causing sin, by his DESIRE to have sin real."
T22E5 "Either alone will see it as a solid block, nor realize how thin the drapery that separates you now."
T22E6 "Think of the loveliness that YOU will see, who walk with Him!"
T22E6 "How thankful will they be to see you come among them, offering Christ's forgiveness to dispel their faith in sin."
T22F3 "See how the means and the material of evil dreams are nothing!"
T22G1 "For one you see as means; the other, end."
T22G4 "This holy relationship, lovely in its innocence, mighty in strength, and blazing with a light far brighter than the sun which lights the sky YOU see, is chosen of your Father as a means for His Own plan."
T22G8 "You will see your value through each other's eyes, and each one is released as he beholds his Savior IN PLACE of the attacker who he THOUGHT was there."
T22G11 "You do not see what this belief has done."
T22G11 "You see yourself as vulnerable, frail, and easily destroyed."
T22G12 "You do not see that this is your attempt, BECAUSE you think the Father and the Son are separate."
T22G14 "You would not choose attack on its reality, if it were not ESSENTIAL to attack to see it SEPARATE FROM ITS CREATOR."
T23A1 "Do you not see the OPPOSITE of frailty and weakness is sinlessness?"
T23A2 "And he will see ONLY the sinless, who can NOT attack."
T23A3 "Nothing they see is harmful, for their AWARENESS of the truth releases everything from the illusion of harmfulness."
T23A6 "Look on it lovingly, and see the light of Heaven in it."
T23B9 "See how the conflict of illusions disappears, when it is brought to truth!"
T23C7 "See how the fear of God is REINFORCED by this third principle."
T23D4 "They do NOT see that, if it is, SALVATION IS ATTACK."
T23E2 "So WILL they be, to those who see God's Son a body."
T23E6 "When the temptation to attack rises to make your mind darkened and murderous, remember you CAN see the battle from above."
T23E7 "See no-one from the battleground, for there you look on him from nowhere."
T23E7 "You have NO reference point from where to look, where meaning can be given what you see."
T24B7 "Could you attack each other if you chose to see NO specialness of any kind between you?"
T24C1 "Against the littleness you see in him you stand as tall and stately, clean and honest, pure and unsullied by comparison with what you see."
T24C5 "The special messages the special hear convince them THEY are different and apart; each in his special sins and safe from love, which does not see his specialness at all."
T24C5 "And it WOULD show them that the specialness they think they see IS an illusion."
T24C6 "What would they see instead?"
T24C6 "You will no longer see what never was, nor hear what makes no sound."
T24C8 "Think of the loveliness that you will see within yourself, when you have looked on him as on a Friend."
T24D1 "No-one who clings to ONE illusion can see himself as sinless, for he holds one error to himself as lovely still."
T24D7 "The special ones are all asleep, surrounded by a world of loveliness they do not see."
T24D7 "Open your eyes a little; see the Savior God gave to you that you might look on him, and give him back his birthright."
T24E2 "See it as means to hurt, and it is hurt."
T24E2 "See it as means to heal, and it is healed."
T24E5 "But DO consider, and consider well, whether it be your WISH that you might see your brother sinless."
T24F3 "How beautiful His hand that holds His brother's, and how lovingly He walks beside him, showing him what CAN be seen and heard, and where he will see nothing, and there IS no sound to hear."
T24F5 "And what THEY see and hear and hold and lead is given light, that YOU may lead as you were led."
T24F6 "And what you see IS like yourself."
T24F6 "For what but Christ IS there to see and hear and love, and follow home?"
T24F7 "He reaches through them, holding out His hand, that everyone may bless all living things, and see their holiness."
T24F8 "The sight of Christ is all there is to see."
T24G2 "See in him God's creation."
T24G4 "Until you see the healing of the Son as all you wish to be accomplished by the world, by time, and ALL appearances, you will NOT know the Father OR yourself."
T24G5 "See in his freedom YOURS, for such it IS."
T24G5 "And not one sin you see in him but keeps you BOTH in hell."
T24G6 "It is HIS sinlessness that eyes that see can look upon."
T24G6 "It is HIS loveliness they see in everything."
T24G7 "Choose, then, his body OR his holiness as what you WANT to see, and which you choose is yours to look upon."
T24G7 "And where is God Himself but in that part of Him He set forever in your brother's holiness, that YOU might see the truth about yourself set forth at last in terms you recognized and understood?"
T24G8 "His errors can NOT withhold God's blessing from himself, nor you who see him truly."
T24G8 "He is the mirror of yourself, wherein you see the judgment you have laid on BOTH of you."
T24G9 "See him as what he IS, that YOUR deliverance may not be long."
T24G9 "And both shall see God's glory in His Son, whom you mistook as flesh, and bound to laws that have NO power over him at all."
T24G10 "Then see HIM not as prisoner to them."
T24G10 "You place YOURSELF under the laws you see as ruling HIM."
T24G10 "The Christ in you CAN see your brother truly."
T24G13 "You who believe it easier to see your brother's body than his holiness, be sure you understand what made this judgment."
T24G13 "To Him, this judgment makes no sense at all, for ONLY what His Father wills is possible, and there IS no alternative for Him to see."
T24H3 "Be thankful, rather, it is given you to see his holiness BECAUSE it is the truth."
T24H4 "And, if you see this purpose in your brother's, such is your condemnation of your own."
T24H5 "Only the PURPOSE that you see in it has meaning, and, if THAT is true, its safety rests secure."
T24H9 "Look at yourself, and you will see a body."
T24H11 "One do you see OUTSIDE yourself, your OWN beloved son."
T24H12 "And what you see will serve that purpose well, and prove ITS own reality to you."
T25A1 "Christ is within a frame of holiness, whose ONLY purpose is that He may be made manifest to those who know Him not; that He may call to them to come to Him, and see Him where they THOUGHT their bodies were."
T25A2 "Yet does the Son of God abide EXACTLY where he is, and walks with him, within his holiness, as plain to see as is his specialness set forth within his body."
T25B2 "How can you manifest the Christ in you, EXCEPT you look on holiness, and see Him there?"
T25B2 "And you MUST see your brother as yourself."
T25B2 "Framed in his body you will see YOUR sinfulness, wherein YOU stand condemned."
T25C2 "Is it not strange that you should cherish still some hope of satisfaction from the world you see?"
T25C2 "For one thing is sure; the way YOU see, and long HAVE seen, gives NO support to base your future hopes, and NO suggestions of success at all."
T25C4 "It cannot BE a frame if IT is what you see."
T25C4 "Who hangs an empty frame upon a wall, and stands before it, deep in reverence, as if a masterpiece were there to see?"
T25C5 "Yet, if you see your brother as a body, it IS but this you do."
T25C5 "The masterpiece that God has set within this frame is all there IS to see."
T25C5 "His masterpiece He offers YOU to see."
T25C5 "And would you rather see the frame INSTEAD of this?"
T25C5 "And see the picture not at all?"
T25C5 "The Holy Spirit is the frame God set around the part of Him that YOU would see as separate."
T25C6 "This IS its purpose, and you do NOT make the frame INTO the picture, when you choose to see it in its place."
T25C7 "Accept HIS frame instead of yours, and you WILL see the masterpiece."
T25C7 "God kept it safe that YOU might look on it, and SEE the holiness that He has given it."
T25C7 "Within the darkness see the Savior FROM the dark, and understand your brother as his Father's Mind shows him to you."
T25C8 "He will step forth from darkness as you look on him, and YOU will see the dark no more."
T25C8 "His gentleness becomes YOUR strength, and BOTH will gladly look within and see the holiness that MUST be there BECAUSE of what you looked upon in him."
T25C10 "Give, then, what He has given you, that YOU may see His Son as one, and thank his Father, as He thanks YOU."
T25C11 "See not in him the sinfulness HE sees, but give him honor that you may esteem yourself AND him."
T25C11 "To each of you is given the power of salvation, that escape from darkness into light be yours to share, that you may see as one what never HAS been separate, nor apart from ALL His Love as given equally."
T25D3 "But this world has two who made it, and they do NOT see it as the same."
T25D5 "The lamps of Heaven are NOT for it to choose to see them where it will."
T25D5 "If it elects to see them elsewhere from their home, as if they lit a place where they could never be, AND YOU AGREE, then must the Maker of the world correct your error, lest you still remain in darkness, where the lamps are NOT."
T25D6 "And when he chooses to AVAIL himself of what is given him, then will he see each situation that he thought before was means to justify his anger, turned to an event which justifies his love."
T25D7 "Let ALL your brother's errors be to you nothing except a chance for YOU to see the workings of the Helper given YOU to see the world HE made, instead of yours."
T25D8 "For these two questions ARE the same, and, when you see them AS the same, your choice is made."
T25D8 "For it is SEEING them as one that brings release from the belief there are two ways to see."
T25D8 "Such its PURPOSE is, to those who WANT to see peace and forgiveness descend on THEM, and offer THEM the light."
T25D10 "Make, then, your choice, but recognize that, in this choice, the purpose of the world you see is chosen, and WILL be justified."
T25E1 "Their joy is in the INNOCENCE they see."
T25E2 "And, while you think that suffering and sin will bring you joy, so long will they be there for you to see."
T25F2 "And who would see the Son of God as innocent, and wish him dead?"
T25F3 "But what is there to see by searching for your Savior, seeing Him through sightless eyes?"
T25F3 "It is NOT Christ you see by looking thus."
T25F3 "And HATE BECAUSE there is no sin in him for you to see."
T25F4 "In everyone you see but the reflection of what you chose to have HIM be to you."
T25F5 "And AS you see him, so do YOU define the function he will have for you, until you see him differently, and LET him be what God APPOINTED that he be to you."
T25F6 "In each of you, you see the picture of your OWN belief of what the Will of God MUST be for you."
T25G1 "He can see no evil; nothing in the world to fear, and no-one who is different from himself."
T25G2 "Dimness seems better; easier to see, and better recognized."
T25G2 "And who can say that he PREFERS the darkness, and maintain he WANTS to see?"
T25G3 "The WISH to see calls down the grace of God upon your eyes, and brings the gift of light that makes sight possible."
T25G3 "Let him no more be lonely, for the lonely ones are those who see no function in the world for them to fill; no place where they are needed, and no aim which ONLY they can perfectly fulfill."
T25G6 "And nothing that you THINK you see in it is REALLY there at all."
T25G7 "In light, you see it is your SPECIAL FUNCTION in the plan to save the Son of God from ALL attack, and let him understand that he is safe, as he has ALWAYS been, and will remain in time and in eternity alike."
T25H4 "Do not attempt to see it differently, nor twist it into something it is not."
T25I3 "To the world, justice and VENGEANCE are the same, for sinners see justice ONLY as their punishment, perhaps sustained by someone ELSE, but NOT escaped."
T25I9 "No further than what you SEE He offers you, and what you recognize you COULD not give yourself."
T25I10 "He would not allow His Son be judged by those who seek his death, and COULD not see his worth at all."
T25I13 "He is NOT impartial, and CANNOT fairly see another's rights BECAUSE his own have been obscured to him."
T25J1 "You CANNOT answer this until you see all that the answer MUST entail."
T25J3 "It is impossible the Holy Spirit could SEE unfairness as a resolution."
T25J4 "Only a LOSS could justify attack, and loss of ANY kind He cannot see."
T26A1 "To see a brother in ANOTHER body, SEPARATE from yours, is the expression of a wish to see a little PART of him, and sacrifice the rest."
T26A1 "Look at the world, and you will see nothing attached to ANYTHING beyond itself."
T26B1 "The world you see is based on SACRIFICE of oneness."
T26B2 "And to ACCEPT the limits of a body is to IMPOSE these limits on each brother that you see."
T26B2 "For you MUST see him as you see yourself."
T26B2 "And while you see your brother as a body,APART from you and separate in his cell, you are demanding sacrifice of him AND you."
T26B4 "Those who would see the witnesses to truth INSTEAD of to illusion merely ask that they might see a PURPOSE in the world that gives it sense and makes it meaningful."
T26B5 "But judge him not, for you will hear no song of liberation for yourself, nor see what it is given him to witness to, that YOU may see it and rejoice WITH him."
T26B5 "You sacrifice YOUR innocence with his, and die each time you see in him a sin deserving death."
T26C3 "Think not the limits YOU impose on what you see can limit God in ANY way."
T26C4 "God OFFERS you the means to see his innocence."
T26C4 "Would it be fair to punish him because you will not LOOK at what is there to see?"
T26C5 "ONE is given you to see in him his perfect sinlessness."
T26C6 "And you will see each little hurt resolved before the Holy Spirit's gentle sight."
T26E2 "Forgiveness turns the world of sin into a world of glory, wonderful to see."
T26E2 "And here you see the Face of Christ arising in its place."
T26F8 "Can it be up to you to see the past, and put it in the present?"
T26H7 "Perhaps you do not see the role forgiveness plays in ending death, and ALL beliefs that rise from mists of guilt."
T26H9 "In joyous answer will creation rise within you, to REPLACE the world you see with Heaven, wholly perfect and complete."
T26I1 "The one remaining problem that you have is that you see an interval between the TIME when you forgive, and will receive the benefits of trust."
T26I1 "And this space you see as time, because you still believe you are EXTERNAL to each other."
T26I2 "You see EVENTUAL salvation; not IMMEDIATE results."
T26I2 "Salvation WOULD wipe out the space you see between you still, and let you INSTANTLY become as one."
T26I3 "Time is as neutral as the body is, except in terms of what you see it FOR."
T26I5 "The change of purpose the Holy Spirit brought to your relationship has IN it all effects that you will see."
T26K1 "And thus you see what IS the same as DIFFERENT."
T26K6 "What this injustice does to you who judge unfairly, and who see as you have judged, you cannot calculate."
T26K6 "And so you see YOURSELF deprived of light, abandoned to the dark, unfairly left without a purpose in a futile world."
T26K6 "And I would rather know of Them than see injustice, which Their Presence shines away.""
T27A1 "And if you are unfairly treated, he MUST suffer the unfairness that you see."
T27A2 "But every pain you suffer do you see as proof that HE is guilty of attack."
T27B1 "You hold a picture of your crucifixion before his eyes, that he may see his sins are writ in Heaven in your blood and death, and go before him, closing off the gate, and damning him to hell."
T27B4 "Show THIS unto your brother, who will see that every scar is healed, and every tear is wiped away in laughter and in love."
T27B7 "For it becomes the symbol of reproach, the sign of guilt whose consequences still are there to see, so that the cause can NEVER be denied."
T27B7 "How futile MUST it be to see yourself a picture of the proof that what your function IS can never be."
T27C2 "And what has consequences MUST be real, because what it has DONE is there to see."
T27C3 "To witness sin, and yet forgive it, is a paradox which reason cannot see."
T27C7 "Your health is a result of your desire to see your brother with no blood upon his hands, nor guilt upon his heart made heavy with the proof of sin."
T27C7 "And what you wish is GIVEN you to see."
T27C10 "Alone, you CANNOT see they are the same, and therefore is correction NOT of you."
T27C14 "In THIS interpretation of correction, your own mistakes you will not even SEE."
T27C15 "His INABILITY to see His goal divided and distinct for each of you preserves your Self from being made aware of any function OTHER than Its Own."
T27D3 "The picture of your brother that you see means nothing."
T27D3 "There is nothing to attack or to deny; to love or hate, or to endow with power or to see as weak."
T27D3 "The picture of your brother that you see is wholly absent, and has never been."
T27E7 "Here are the answers which will SOLVE your problems, because they stand APART from them, and see what CAN be answered; what the QUESTION is."
T27F5 "The holy instant's radiance will light YOUR eyes, and give them sight to see beyond ALL suffering, and see Christ's Face INSTEAD."
T27F5 "And what YOU see the world will witness, and will witness TO."
T27F7 "If he DID, it would be there no more for him to see."
T27F7 "But this can only be attained by One Who does not see the DIFFERENCES you see."
T27F8 "But that it HAS been made, IN SPITE of all the differences you see, convinces YOU that they could not be real."
T27G3 "You use its eyes to see, its ears to hear, and let it TELL you what it is it feels."
T27H3 "No-one who looks upon this "reasoning" EXACTLY as it is could fail to see it does NOT follow, and it makes NO sense."
T27H4 "And he MUST see it in ANOTHER hand, if he would be a victim of attack he did NOT choose."
T27H7 "The one who makes them does NOT see himself as making them, and their reality does NOT depend on him."
T27H8 "He CANNOT doubt his dreams' reality BECAUSE he does not see the part he plays in MAKING them, and MAKING them seem real."
T27H9 "This is the ONLY picture you can see, the ONE alternative that you can choose, the OTHER possibility of cause, if you be NOT the dreamer of your dreams."
T27H10 "But if the choice is REALLY given you, then you must see the causes of the things you choose BETWEEN exactly AS they are and WHERE they are."
T27H12 "The little gap you do not even see, the birthplace of illusions and of fear, the time of terror and of ancient hate, the instant of disaster; -- all are here."
T27H15 "He represents his Father, Whom you see as offering both life AND death to you."
T27H15 "Brother, He gives BUT life, and what you see as gifts your brother offers REPRESENT the gifts you dream your Father gives to you."
T27I4 "Then let us merely look upon the dream's beginning, for the part you see is but the SECOND part, whose CAUSE lies in the first."
T27I5 "And we will see the grounds for laughter, NOT a cause for fear."
T27I7 "The world you see depicts EXACTLY what you thought YOU did."
T27I8 "But, once deluded into blaming THEM, you will not see the CAUSE of what they do BECAUSE you want the guilt to rest on them."
T27I12 "Yet you need but learn you choose but NOT to listen, NOT to see."
T28B5 "And see, instead, the NEW effects of cause accepted NOW, with consequences HERE."
T28B8 "In quietness, see in the miracle a lesson in allowing Cause to have Its OWN effects, and doing NOTHING that would interfere."
T28B12 "What has been lost to see the causeless NOT?"
T28C5 "ONLY that you see you made the one you would EXCHANGE for this."
T28C7 "The fear was held in place BECAUSE he did not see that he was AUTHOR of the dream, and not a figure IN the dream."
T28C10 "And you can accept the role of maker of their hate BECAUSE you see that it has no effects."
T28D4 "For it was made to keep you separated in a body which you see as if it were the CAUSE of pain."
T28E2 "You see them as the same, because you think that YOU are but a dream."
T28E5 "But if you see there IS no truth in yours, his dreams will disappear before his eyes, and he will understand what MADE the dream."
T28F4 "It cannot see nor hear."
T28F5 "For eyes and ears are senses without sense, and what they see and hear they but report."
T28F5 "It is not THEY that hear and see, but YOU, who PUT TOGETHER every jagged piece, each senseless scrap and shred of evidence, and MAKE a witness to the world you want."
T28F7 "Look at the little gap, and you behold the innocence and emptiness of sin that you will see within yourself, when you have lost the fear of recognizing love."
T28G2 "It is indeed a senseless point of view to hold responsible for sight a thing that cannot see, and blame it for the sounds you do not like, although it cannot hear."
T28G3 "Yet you have made of it a symbol of the limitations which you want your MIND to have and see and KEEP."
T28G4 "No-one can suffer if he does NOT see himself attacked, AND LOSING BY ATTACK."
T29B3 "And so you MUST misuse each circumstance and everyone you meet, and see in them a purpose NOT their own."
T29B4 "You do NOT see how limited and weak is YOUR allegiance, and how frequently you have demanded that it go away, and leave you quietly alone in "peace.""
T29C1 "Is it not because you see it as the road to hell, instead of looking on it as a simple way, without a sacrifice or ANY loss, to find yourself in Heaven and in God?"
T29C1 "And you will NOT see the many gains your choice has offered you."
T29C2 "Yet, though you do not see them, they are there."
T29C5 "You do not see how much you now can GIVE, because of everything you have received."
T29C5 "You can not see your Guest, but you CAN see the gifts He brought."
T29D2 "He must see someone ELSE as NOT a body, one with him, without the wall the world has built to keep apart all living things who know not that they live."
T29D3 "And as you see him shining in the space of light where God abides within the darkness, you will see that God Himself is where his body is."
T29D5 "See how eagerly he comes, and steps aside from heavy shadows that have hidden him, and shines on you in gratitude and love."
T29F2 "Here is the role the Holy Spirit gives to you who wait upon the Son of God, and would behold him waken and be glad: He is a part of you, and you of him, BECAUSE he is his Father's Son, and not for ANY purpose you may see in him."
T29F4 "There is no gift the Father asks of you but that you see in all creation but the shining glory of His Gift to you."
T29G3 "But you can NOT remove the Power to change your mind, and see ANOTHER purpose there."
T29G5 "For nothing here but is defined as what you see it FOR."
T29H6 "For otherwise, the future WILL be like the past, and but a series of depressing dreams, in which all idols fail you, one by one, and you see death and disappointment everywhere."
T29H6 "You try to see in it a place of idols, found outside yourself, with power to make complete what is within by splitting what you are BETWEEN the two."
T29I3 "An idol is a false impression, or a false belief; some form of anti-Christ which constitutes a gap BETWEEN the Christ and what you see."
T30B3 "This means you HAVE decided by yourself, AND CANNOT SEE THE QUESTION."
T30B7 "This is the READINESS for asking, brought to your awareness, for you CANNOT be in conflict when you ask for what you want, and SEE that it is this for which you ask."
T30B8 "Nor will you fight AGAINST it, for you see that it is YOU who will be helped by it."
T30B10 "Let THIS be understood, and you can see there cannot BE coercion here, nor grounds for opposition that you may be free."
T30D2 "So you see YOUR will within the idol, thus reducing it to a SPECIFIC form."
T30E1 "You WILL attack what does not satisfy, and thus you will not see you made it up."
T30E4 "See ONE in them, and you will see them all."
T30E4 "See NONE in them, and they will touch you not."
T30F6 "Perhaps they still look back, and think they see an idol that they want."
T30G2 "But you are merely asked to see forgiveness as the NATURAL reaction to distress which rests on error, and thus calls for help."
T30G4 "If you can see your brother MERITS pardon, you have learned forgiveness is YOUR right, as much as his."
T30G8 "Look on your brother with the willingness to see him as he is."
T30G8 "There IS no way to think of him but this, if you would know the truth about yourself: "I thank you, Father, for your perfect Son, And in his glory will I see my own.""
T30G9 "But what you see as having power to make an idol of the Son of God, you will NOT pardon."
T30H2 "And then, in looking back, you think you see ANOTHER meaning in what went before."
T30H4 "In this shared purpose is one meaning shared by everyone and everything you see."
T30H4 "You do not have to judge, for you have learned one meaning has been GIVEN everything, and you are GLAD to see it everywhere."
T30H6 "All sacrifice entails the LOSS of your ability to see relationships AMONG events."
T30H7 "Do not interpret out of solitude, for what you see means nothing."
T30I1 "And if you fail to see BEYOND appearances, you ARE deceived."
T30I1 "For everything you see will change, and yet you thought it real before, and now you think it real again."
T30I5 "BECAUSE reality is changeless is a miracle already there to heal all things that change, and offer them to you to see in happy form, devoid of fear."
T30I5 "And you WILL see the Christ in him because you LET Him come to you."
T30I6 "Why should you fear to see the Christ in him?"
T30I6 "You but behold yourself in what you see."
T31A1 "How hard is it to see that what is false can not be true, and what is true can not be false?"
T31A5 "Now does your ancient overlearning stand implacable before the Voice of Truth, and teach you that Its lessons are not true; too hard to learn, too difficult to see, and too opposed to what is REALLY true."
T31A7 "The certain outcome of the lesson that God's Son is guilty is the world you see."
T31A7 "And you WILL learn God's Son is innocent, and see ANOTHER world."
T31A8 "And now you see YOU were mistaken."
T31B2 "Yet must we see them both, before you can look PAST them, to the ONE Alternative that IS a different choice."
T31B3 "You see yourself divided into both these roles, forever split between the two."
T31B5 "For he is asking what will come to you, because you see an image of yourself, and hear your voice requesting what you want."
T31B10 "This is the road to nowhere, for the light cannot be given while you walk alone, and so you cannot SEE which way you go."
T31C6 "Let us be glad that you WILL see what you believe, and that it HAS been given you to CHANGE what you believe."
T31C6 "Release your body from imprisonment, and you will see no-one as prisoner to what you have escaped."
T31C6 "And what they see upholds their freedom FROM imprisonment and death."
T31D3 "The roads this world can offer seem to be quite large in number, but the time must come when everyone begins to see how like they are to one another."
T31D4 "For from this lowest point will learning lead to heights of happiness, in which you see the PURPOSE of the lesson shining clear, and perfectly within your learning grasp."
T31E3 "The other side he does not want to see."
T31E3 "For it is here the world's reality is set, to see to it the idol lasts."
T31E7 "A concept of the self is meaningless, for no-one here can see what it is for, and therefore cannot picture what it IS."
T31E7 "Yet is all learning that the world directs begun and ended with the single aim of teaching you this concept of yourself, that you will choose to follow this world's laws, and never seek to go BEYOND its roads, nor realize the way you see yourself."
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."
T31E8 "Could he see your future, and ordain before it came what you should do in EVERY circumstance?"
T31E9 "Who is there to see?"
T31E14 "To see a guilty world is but the sign your learning has been guided by the world, and you behold it as you see yourself."
T31E14 "If you can be hurt by ANYTHING, you see a picture of your secret wishes."
T31E14 "And in your suffering of ANY kind, you see your own concealed desire to kill."
T31E15 "There will come a time when images have all gone by, and you will see you know not what you are."
T31F1 "You see the flesh or recognize the Spirit."
T31F1 "What you decide in this determines all you see, and think is real, and hold as true."
T31F1 "But choose the Spirit, and all Heaven bends to touch your eyes, and bless your holy sight, that you may see the world of flesh no more, except to heal and comfort and to bless."
T31F2 "If you choose to see the body, you behold a world of separation, unrelated things, and happenings that make no sense at all."
T31F3 "For YOU can see the body WITHOUT help, but do not understand how to behold a world APART from it."
T31F3 "It is your world salvation will undo, and LET you see another world your eyes could never find."
T31F3 "You do not understand how what YOU see arose to meet your sight."
T31F4 "The means are GIVEN you by which to see the world that will replace the one you made."
T31F5 "You who believe that you can choose to see the Son of God as you would have him be, forget not that no CONCEPT of yourself will stand against the truth of what you are."
T31F5 "And so it looks on you with eyes that see as yours."
T31G2 "You could not recognize your "evil" thoughts as long as you see value in attack."
T31G3 "In terms of concepts, it is thus you see him MORE than just a body, for the "good" is NEVER what the body seems to be."
T31G4 "And this will be your concept of YOURSELF, when you have reached the world beyond the sight your eyes alone can offer you to see."
T31G4 "For you will not interpret what you see without the Aid that God has given you."
T31G6 "Alternatives are in your mind to use, and you CAN see yourself another way."
T31G7 "The light is kept from everything you see."
T31G7 "And what you see is hell, for fear IS hell."
T31G10 "Who has learned to see his brother NOT as this HAS saved himself, and thus IS he a savior to the rest."
T31G11 "How would you know his holiness, while you see him apart from yours?"
T31G11 "For holiness is seen through holy eyes that look upon the innocence within, and thus EXPECT to see it everywhere."
T31G11 "This is the Savior's vision; that he see HIS innocence in all he looks upon, and sees his own salvation everywhere."
T31G11 "He BRINGS the light to what he looks upon, that he may see it as it really is."
T31G12 "Yet it can look with love or look with hate, depending only on the simple choice of whether you would JOIN with what you see, or keep yourself apart and separate."
T31G14 "Consider what temptation is, and see the real alternatives you choose between."
T31G15 "And THEY cannot see until he looks on them with seeing eyes, and offers them forgiveness with his own."
T31H4 "Be never fearful of temptation then, but see it as it is; another chance to choose again, and let Christ's strength prevail in every circumstance and every place you raised an image of yourself before."
T31H4 "The Saviors of the world, who see like Him, are merely those who chose His strength instead of their own weakness, seen APART from Him."
T31H6 "You ARE as God created you, and so is every living thing you look upon, REGARDLESS of the images you see."
T31H6 "Yield NOT to this, and you will see ALL pain in EVERY form WHEREVER it occurs but disappear as mists before the sun."
T31H6 "Choose once again what you would have him be, remembering that every choice you make establishes your own identity as you will see it, and believe it IS."
W1IN13 "The Workbook is divided into two sections, the first dealing with the undoing of what you see now, and the second with the restoration of sight."
W1IN14 "Unless specified to the contrary, the exercise should be practiced with the eyes open, since the aim is to learn how to see."
W1IN14 "Each one applies to every situation in which you find yourself, and to everything you see in it."
W1IN14 "Be sure that you do not decide that there are some things you see to which the idea for the day is inapplicable."
W1IN15 "You are merely asked to apply them to what you see."
W1L3 "The statement is merely applied to anything you see."
W1L3 "Do not attempt to apply it to everything you see, for these exercises should not become ritualistic."
W1L3 "Only be sure that nothing you see is specifically excluded."
W2L2 "Take the subjects simply as you see them."
W3L1 "Whatever you see becomes a proper subject for applying the idea."
W3L1 "Anything is suitable if you see it."
W3L1 "Some of the things you see may have emotionally-charged meaning for you."
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."
W4L3 "It is a first attempt in the long-range purpose of learning to see the meaningless as outside you and the meaningful within."
W4L3 "It is like the things I see in this room (or wherever you are)" "
W6L1 "For example: "I am angry at ____ because I see something that is not there.""
W6L1 ""I am worried about ____ because I see something that is not there.""
W7L1 "It is the reason why nothing that you see means anything."
W7L1 "It is the reason why you have given everything you see all the meaning that it has for you."
W7L1 "It is the reason why you do not understand anything you see."
W7L1 "It is the reason why your thoughts do not mean anything, and why they are like the things you see."
W7L1 "It is the reason why you are upset because you see something that is not there."
W7L3 "Do you see a cup, or are you merely reviewing your past experiences of picking up a cup, being thirsty, drinking from a cup, feeling the rim of a cup against your lips, having breakfast, and so on?"
W7L3 "Do you, then, really see it?"
W7L4 "For example: "I see only the past in this pencil.""
W7L4 ""I see only the past in this shoe.""
W7L4 ""I see only the past in this hand.""
W7L4 ""I see only the past in that body.""
W7L4 ""I see only the past in that face.""
W8L1 "This idea is, of course, the reason why you see only the past."
W8L4 "This is because you actually cannot see anything, and it is easier to recognize that no matter how vividly you may picture a thought, you are not seeing anything."
W9L3 "These exercises, for which three or four practice periods are sufficient, involve looking about you and applying the idea for the day to whatever you see, remembering the need for its indiscriminate application, and the essential rule of excluding nothing."
W9L4 "For example: "I do not see that typewriter as it is now.""
W9L4 ""I do not see this key as it is now.""
W9L4 ""I do not see this telephone as it is now.""
W9L4 "Begin with things that are nearest you, and then extend the range: "I do not see that coat rack as it is now.""
W9L4 ""I do not see that face as it is now.""
W9L4 ""I do not see that door as it is now.""
W10L3 "To recognize this is to recognize nothingness when you think you see it."
W11L1 "Today's idea introduces the concept that your thoughts determine the world you see."
W12L2 "What you see does not matter."
W12L3 "As you look about you, say to yourself: "I think I see a fearful world, a dangerous world, a hostile world, a sad world, a wicked world, a crazy world," and so on, using whatever descriptive terms happen to occur to you."
W12L4 "At the end of the practice period, add: "But I am upset because I see a meaningless world.""
W12L5 "It is this you see in it."
W12L5 "The truth upsets you now, but when your words have been erased, you will see His."
W14L1 "The world you see has nothing to do with reality."
W14L3 "The idea for today is another step in learning to let go the thoughts which you have written on the world, and see the Word of God in their place."
W14L6 "These things are part of the world you see."
W15L1 "You think you think them, and so you think you see them."
W15L2 "You will begin to understand it when you have seen little edges of light around the same familiar objects which you see now."
W15L4 "In practicing the idea for today, repeat it first to yourself, and then apply it to whatever you see around you, using its name and letting your eyes rest on it as you say: "This ____ is an image which I have made.""
W16L1 "Everything you see is the result of your thoughts."
W17L1 "You see no neutral things because you have no neutral thoughts."
W17L2 "In applying today's idea, say to yourself, with eyes open: "I see no neutral things because I have no neutral thoughts.""
W17L2 "Then look about you, resting your glance on each thing that catches your eye long enough to say: "I do not see a neutral ____ because my thoughts about ____ are not neutral.""
W17L2 "For example, you might say: "I do not see a neutral wall, because my thoughts about walls are not neutral.""
W17L2 " "I do not see a neutral body, because my thoughts about bodies are not neutral.""
W17L3 "Regardless of what you may believe, you do not see anything which is really alive and really joyous."
W18L1 "The idea for today is another step in learning that the thoughts which give rise to what you see are never neutral or unimportant."
W18L2 "Today's idea does not refer to what you see as much as to how you see it."
W18L3 "Selecting subjects for the application of the idea randomly, look at each one long enough to say: "I am not alone in experiencing the effects of how I see ____.""
W20L1 "Yet you will not see if you regard yourself as being coerced, and if you give in to resentment and opposition."
W20L4 "The exercises for today consist in reminding yourselves throughout the day that you want to see."
W20L4 "Today's idea also tacitly implies the recognition that you do not see now."
W20L5 "You can see them differently, and you will."
W20L5 "What you desire you will see."
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.""
W21L4 ""I am determined to see ____ (specify the situation) differently.""
W22L1 "Today's idea accurately describes the way anyone who holds attack thoughts in his mind must see the world."
W22L3 "As your eyes move slowly from one object to another, from one body to another, say to yourself: "I see only the perishable."
W22L3 "I see nothing that will last."
W22L3 "What I see is a form of vengeance.""
W22L3 "At the end of each practice period, ask yourself: "Is this the world I really want to see?""
W23L1 "Every thought you have makes up some segment of the world you see."
W23L2 "If the cause of the world you see is attack thoughts, you must learn that it is these thoughts which you do not want."
W23L3 "The world you see is a vengeful world, and everything in it is a symbol of vengeance."
W23L4 "You see the world which you have made, but you do not see yourself as the image-maker."
W23L4 "This is what salvation means, for where is the world you see when its cause is gone?"
W23L5 "The idea for today introduces the thought that you are not trapped in the world you see, because its cause can be changed."
W23L5 "By taking the first two steps, you will see that this is so."
W23L7 "We are still at the stage of identifying the cause of the world you see."
W25L1 "Today's idea explains why nothing you see means anything."
W25L1 "It is in recognizing this that what you see is given meaning."
W26L1 "You see attack as a real threat."
W27L2 "There may be a great temptation to believe that some sort of sacrifice is being asked of you when you say you want to see above all else."
W28L2 "You may wonder why it is important to say, for example, "Above all else I want to see this table differently.""
W28L2 "You see a lot of separate things about you, which really means you are not seeing at all."
W28L2 "You either see or not."
W28L2 "When you have seen one thing differently, you will see all things differently."
W28L2 "The light you will see in any one of them is the same light you will see in them all."
W28L3 "When you say "Above all else I want to see this table differently," you are making a commitment to withdraw your preconceived ideas about the table, and open your minds to what it is and what it is for."
W28L4 "In saying, "Above all else I want to see this table differently," you are committing yourself to seeing."
W28L6 "In using the table as a subject for applying the idea for today you are therefore really asking to see the purpose of the universe."
W28L7 "We will have six two minute practice periods today, in which the idea for the day is stated first, and then applied to whatever you see in looking about you."
W28L8 "As usual, the applications should include the name of the subject which your eyes happen to 'light on, and you should rest your eyes on it while saying: "Above all else, I want to see this ____ differently" Each application should be made quite slowly and as thoughtfully as possible."
W29L1 "The idea for today explains why you can see all purpose in anything."
W29L1 "And it explains why nothing you see means anything."
W29L2 "Certainly God is not in a table, for example, as you see it."
W29L3 "You do not see them now."
W30L1 "From this idea will the world open up before you, and you will look upon it and see in it what you have never seen before."
W30L2 "Instead, we are trying to see in the world what is in our minds, and what we want to recognize is there."
W30L2 "Thus we are trying to join with what we see, rather than keeping it apart from us."
W30L3 "Whenever you have a moment or so, repeat it to yourself slowly, looking about you, and trying to realize that the idea applies to everything you do see now, or could see now if it were within the range of your sight."
W30L4 "To help you begin to get used to this idea, try to think of things beyond your present range as well as those you can actually see, as you apply today's idea."
W31L1 "Again, the idea should be applied to both the world you see without and the world you see within."
W32L1 "You are not the victim of the world you see because you invented it."
W32L1 "You will see it or not see it, as you wish."
W32L1 "While you want it you will see it; when you no longer want it, it will not be there for you to see."
W32L2 "However, since you see them as different, the practice periods for today will again include two phases, one involving the world you see outside you, and the other the world you see in your mind."
W32L3 "Again we will begin the practice periods for the morning and evening by repeating the idea for today two or three times, while looking around at the world you see as outside yourself."
W32L6 "Apply the idea by telling yourself: "I have invented this situation as I see it.""
W34L5 "If a specific form of temptation arises in your awareness, the exercise should take this form: "I could see peace in this situation instead of what I now see in it.""
W35L1 "Today's idea does not describe the way you see yourself now."
W35L2 "What you see while you believe you are in it is seen through the eyes of the image."
W35L2 "Images cannot see."
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."
W35L6 "A suitable unselected list for applying the idea for today might be as follows: "I see myself as imposed on.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as depressed.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as failing.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as endangered.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as helpless.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as victorious.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as losing out.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as charitable.""
W35L6 ""I see myself as virtuous.""
W37L1 "Your purpose is to see the world through your own holiness."
W37L2 "Those who see themselves as whole make no demands."
W37L5 "You may continue the practice period with your eyes closed; you may open your eyes again and apply the idea for today to your outer world if you so desire; you may alternate between applying it to what you see around you and to those who are in your thoughts; or you may use any combination of these two phases of application which you prefer."
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."
W38L4 "Use this form in applying the idea for today: "In the situation involving ____ in which I see myself, there is nothing that my holiness cannot do.""
W39L2 "If you did, you would see at once how direct and simple the text is, and you would not need a Workbook at all."
W39L7 "It is imperative for your own salvation that you see them differently."
W41L5 "How could you, when the truth is hidden deep within, under a heavy cloud of insane thoughts, dense and obscuring, yet representing all you see?"
W42L1 "You will see because it is the Will of God."
W43L2 "In God you cannot see."
W43L3 "You cannot see apart from God because you cannot be apart from God."
W43L4 "Then glance around you for a short time, applying today's idea specifically to what you see."
W43L4 "I cannot see this desk apart from Him.""
W43L4 "I cannot see that picture apart from Him.""
W43L5 "Thoughts such as: "I see through the eyes of forgiveness," "I see the world as blessed," "The world can show me myself," "I see my own thoughts, which are like God's," or any thought related more or less directly to today's idea is suitable."
W43L7 "I cannot see you apart from Him.""
W43L8 "I cannot see this apart from Him.""
W44L1 "You cannot see in darkness, and you cannot make light."
W44L1 "You can make darkness and then think you see in it, but light reflects life, and is therefore an aspect of creation."
W44L2 "In order to see, one must recognize that light is within, not without."
W44L2 "You do not see outside yourself."
W44L3 "Yet the training must be accomplished if you are to see."
W44L6 "God is the Light in which you see."
W51L1 "1) "Nothing I see means anything.""
W51L1 "The reason this is so is that I see nothing, and nothing has no meaning."
W51L1 "It is necessary that I recognize this that I may learn to see."
W51L2 "2) "I have given what I see all the meaning it has for me.""
W51L2 "And it is this and only this that I see."
W51L2 "I am willing to recognize the lack of validity in my judgments because I want to see."
W51L2 "My judgments have hurt me, and I do not want to see according to them."
W51L3 "3) "I do not understand anything I see.""
W51L3 "How could I understand what I see when I have judged it amiss?"
W51L3 "What I see is the projection of my own errors of thought."
W51L3 "I do not understand what I see because it is not understandable."
W51L3 "I can exchange what I see now for this merely by being willing to do so."
W51L5 "I have not realized how much I have misused everything I see by assigning this role to it."
W52L1 "6) "I am upset because I see what is not there.""
W52L2 "7) "I see only the past.""
W52L2 "When I have forgiven myself and remembered who I am, I will bless everyone and everything I see."
W52L2 "And I will look with God on all that I failed to see before."
W52L3 "I see only my own thoughts, and my mind is preoccupied with the past."
W52L3 "What, then, can I see as it is?"
W52L4 "9) "I see nothing as it is now.""
W52L4 "If I see nothing as it is now, it can truly be said that I see nothing."
W52L4 "I can see only what is now."
W52L4 "The choice is not whether to see the past or the present: it is merely whether to see or not."
W52L4 "Now I would choose again, that I may see."
W53L1 "I can therefore see a real world, if I look to my real thoughts as my guide for seeing."
W53L2 "12) "I am upset because I see a meaningless world.""
W53L2 "I am grateful that this world is not real, and that I need not see it at all unless I choose to value it."
W53L5 "Whatever I see reflects my thoughts."
W53L5 "The fact that I see a world in which there is suffering and loss and death shows me that I am seeing only the representation of my insane thoughts, and am not allowing my real thoughts to cast their beneficent light on what I see."
W54L1 "As the world I see arises from my thinking errors, so will the real world rise before my eyes as I let my errors be corrected."
W54L1 "What I see shows me which they are."
W54L2 "17) "I see no neutral things.""
W54L2 "What I see witnesses to what I think."
W54L2 "And so I also know that the world I see can change as well."
W54L3 "If I have no private thoughts, I cannot see a private world."
W54L3 "Even the mad idea of separation had to be shared before it could form the basis of the world I see."

W54L5 "Recognizing the shared nature of my thoughts, I am determined to see."
W55L1 "21) "I am determined to see things differently.""
W55L1 "What I see now are but signs of disease, disaster and death."
W55L1 "The very fact that I see such things is proof that I do not understand God."
W55L1 "What I see tells me that I do not know who I am."
W55L1 "I am determined to see the witnesses to the truth in me, rather than those which show me an illusion of myself."
W55L2 "22) "What I see is a form of vengeance.""
W55L2 "The world I see is hardly the representation of loving thoughts."
W55L3 "Without attack thoughts I could not see a world of attack."
W55L3 "As forgiveness allows love to return to my awareness I will see a world of peace and safety and Joy."
W55L3 "And It is this that I choose to see, in place of what I look on now."
W56L1 "How can I know who I am when I see myself as under constant attack?"
W56L1 "I have tried to give my inheritance away in exchange for the world I see."
W56L2 "27) "Above all else I want to see.""

W56L3 "28) "Above all else I want to see differently.""
W56L3 "The world I see holds my fearful self-image in place, and guarantees its continuance."
W56L3 "While I see the world as I see it now, truth cannot enter my awareness."
W56L4 "29) "God is in everything I see.""
W56L5 "30) "God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.""
W57L1 "31) "I am not the victim of the world I see.""
W57L2 "32) "I have invented the world I see.""
W57L2 "I made up the prison in which I see myself."
W57L3 "I see everything upside-down, and my thoughts are the opposite of truth."
W57L3 "I see the world as a prison for God's Son."
W57L3 "I would look upon the world as it is, and see it as a place where the Son of God finds his freedom."
W57L4 "34) "I could see peace instead of this.""
W57L4 "When I see the world as a place of freedom, I will realize that it reflects the laws of God instead of the rules which I made up for it to obey."
W57L5 "In this light, I begin to see what my illusions about myself had kept hidden."
W58L1 "36) "My holiness envelops everything I see.""
W58L1 "Having forgiven, I no longer see myself as guilty."
W58L1 "Seen through understanding eyes the holiness of the world is all I see, for I can picture only the thoughts I hold about myself."
W58L2 "Everyone and everything I see in it's light shares in the joy it brings to me."
W58L2 "As I recognize my holiness, so does the holiness of the world shine forth for everyone to see."
W59L2 "Let me not look to my own eyes to see today."
W59L3 "I cannot see apart from Him.""
W59L3 "I can see what God wants me to see."
W59L3 "I cannot see anything else."
W59L3 "It is these I choose when I think I can see apart from Him."
W59L3 "It is these I choose when I try to see through the body's eyes."
W59L4 "44) "God is the Light in which I see.""
W59L4 "I cannot see in darkness."
W59L4 "Therefore, if I am to see, it must be through Him."
W59L4 "Now it is given me to understand that God is the Light in which I see."
W60L1 "The blameless cannot blame, and those who have accepted their innocence see nothing to forgive."
W60L2 "As I begin to see, I recognize His reflection on earth."
W60L3 "How safe the world will look to me when I can see it!"
W60L3 "It will not look anything like what I imagine I see now."

W60L5 "As I open my eyes, His Love lights up the world for me to see."
W62L1 "It is your forgiveness that lets you recognize the light in which you see."
W64L1 "The purpose of the world you see is to obscure your function of forgiveness, and provide you with a justification for forgetting it."
W64L2 "Nothing the body's eyes seem to see can be anything but a form of temptation, since this was the purpose of the body itself."
W65L8 "It is what you see now that will be totally changed when you accept today's idea completely."
W66L1 "This is because you do not really see the connection."
W66L5 " Try to see the logic in this sequence, even if you do not accept the conclusion."
W68L1 "To hold a grievance is to see yourself as a body."
W68L6 "Determine now to see all these people as friends."

W69L2 "We are trying to let the veil be lifted, and see the tears of God's Son disappear in the sunlight."
W69L4 "You can see only the clouds because you seem to be standing outside the whole area, and quite apart from it."
W69L4 "From where you stand, you can see no reason to believe there is a brilliant light hidden by the clouds."
W69L4 "They seem to be all there is to see."
W69L8 "I cannot see what I have hidden."
W70L1 "You see neither guilt nor salvation as in your own mind, and nowhere else."
W70L3 "This is not a role which can be partially accepted, and you must surely begin to see that accepting it is salvation."
W71L4 "Surely you can see how it is in strict accord with the ego's basic doctrine, "Seek but do not find?""
W71L9 "There could be no better way to spend a half minute or less than to remember the Source of your salvation, and to see It where It is."
W72L6 "This is the universal belief of the world you see."
W72L8 "Now we are going to try to see this differently."
W72L8 "To see our Self as separate from the body is to end the attack on God's plan for salvation, and to accept it instead."
W72L10 "Now we would see and hear and learn."
W73L2 "Idle wishes and grievances are partners or co-makers in picturing the world you see."
W75L2 "Today we see a different world because the light has come."
W75L3 "Today we will accept the new world as what we want to see."
W75L3 "We will to see the light; the light has come."
W75L4 "This is what we want to see, and only this."
W75L4 "We do not see the ego's shadow on the world today."
W75L4 "We see the light, and in it we see Heaven's reflection lie across the world."
W75L7 "From this time forth you will see differently."
W75L7 "And you will see the world that has been promised you since time began, and in which is the end of time ensured."
W75L8 "Without the darkness of the past upon your eyes, you cannot fail to see today."
W75L8 "And what you see will be so welcome that you will gladly extend today forever."
W76L5 "The body suffers that the mind will fail to see it is the victim of itself."
W78L1 "And as you raise it up before your eyes, you will not see the miracle beyond."
W78L2 "We will reverse the way you see by not allowing sight to stop before it sees."
W78L3 "For every grievance is a block to sight, and as it lifts, you see the Son of God where he has always been."
W78L3 "Each grievance made the darkness deeper, and you could not see."
W78L3 "Today we will attempt to see God's Son."
W78L4 "Someone, perhaps, you fear and even hate; someone you think you love who angers you; someone you call a friend, but whom you see as difficult at times, or hard to please; demanding, irritating, or untrue to the ideal he should accept as his according to the role you set for him."
W78L6 "Our longer practice periods today will see him in this role."
W78L7 "Then let us ask of Him who knows this Son of God in his reality and truth, that we may look on him a different way, and see our Savior shining in the light of true forgiveness, given unto us."
W78L8 "And what you see through Him will free you both."
W79L2 "Who can see that a problem has been solved if he thinks the problem is something else?"
W79L2 "Even if he is given the answer, he cannot see its relevance."

W79L9 "You will see many problems today, each one calling for an answer."
W80R24 "Trust it to see you through, and carry you beyond them all."
W81L5 "It is through accepting my function that I will see the light in me."
W81L5 "Yet I will trust that in the light I will see it as it is."
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.""
W84L3 "You might find these specific forms helpful in applying the idea: "Let me not see an illusion of myself in this.""
W84L3 ""My Creator did not create this as I see it.""
W85L2 "My grievances show me what is not there, and hide from me what I would see."
W85L2 "To see, I must lay grievances aside."
W85L2 "I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed."
W85L3 "I want to see.""
W85L5 "But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see will but reflect the light that shines in me and in itself."
W86L6 ""If I see grounds for grievances in this, I will not see the grounds for my salvation.""

W91L10 "Their strength becomes your eyes, that you may see."
W92L1 "This is why you believe that you can change what you see by keeping little bits of glass or other clear material before your eyes held in a frame or placed against the eye."
W92L1 "These are among the many magical beliefs that come from the conviction you are a body, and the body's eyes can see."
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."

W105L2 "This strange distortion of what giving means pervades all levels of the world you see."
W105L9 "And if a brother seems to tempt you to deny God's gift to him, see it as but another chance to let yourself receive the gifts of God as yours."

W124L9 "And you will see Christ's Face upon it, in reflection of your own."
W124L10 "Perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, you will see your own transfiguration in the glass this holy half an hour will hold out to you, to look upon yourself."
W124L10 "Perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, you will look into this glass, and understand the sinless light you see belongs to you; the loveliness you look on is your own."
W124L11 "Count this half hour as your gift to God, in certainty that His return will be a sense of love you cannot understand, a joy too deep for you to comprehend, a sight too holy for the body's eyes to see, and yet you can be sure some day, perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow, you will understand and comprehend and see."

W126L6 "It is not a means for your release from what you see in someone other than yourself."
W127L2 "He does not see that changing love must be impossible."
W127L5 "Yet it is perfectly apparent to the eyes that see and ears that hear its Voice."
W128L1 "The world you see has nothing that you need to offer you; nothing that you can use in any way, nor anything at all that serves to give you joy."
W128L2 "For everything must serve the purpose you have given it until you see a different purpose there."
W128L2 "The world you see has nothing that you want."
W128L6 "Peace and be still a little while, and see how far you rise above the world when you release your mind from chains, and let it seek the level where it finds itself at home."
W128L7 "And when your eyes are opened afterwards, you will not value anything you see as much as when you looked at it before."
W128L8 "And when you think you see some value in an aspect or an image of the world, refuse to lay this chain upon your mind, and tell yourself with quiet certainty: "This will not tempt me to delay myself."
W128L8 "The world I see has nothing that I want.""
W129L1 "You cannot stop with the idea the world is worthless, for unless you see that there is something else to hope for you will only be depressed."
W129L2 "The world you see is merciless indeed, unstable, cruel, unconcerned with you, quick to avenge and pitiless with hate."
W129L5 "Here can you but look forward, never back to see again the world you do not want."
W129L7 "I choose to see that world instead of this, For here is nothing that I really want.""
W129L7 "Then close your eyes upon the world you see, and in the silent darkness watch the lights that are not of this world light one by one until where one begins, another ends, loses all meaning as they blend in one."
W129L8 "And yet your mind can see it plainly, and can understand."
W129L9 "Remember your decision hourly, and take a moment to confirm your choice by laying by whatever thoughts you have, and dwelling briefly only upon this: "The world I see has nothing that I want."
W130L1 "What you see reflects your thinking."
W130L1 "And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see."
W130L1 "Your values are determiners of this, for what you value you must want to see, believing what you see is really there."
W130L1 "No one can see a world his mind has not accorded value."
W130L2 "And who can choose to see a world of which he is afraid?"
W130L2 "Fear must make blind, for this its weapon is; that which you fear to see you cannot see."
W130L4 "Fear has made everything you think you see."
W130L5 "It is impossible to see two worlds which have no overlap of any kind."
W130L6 "The world you see is proof you have already made a choice as all-embracing as its opposite."
W130L6 "What we would learn today is more than just the lesson that you cannot see two worlds."
W130L6 "It also teaches that the one you see is quite consistent from the point of view from which you see it."
W130L6 "It is all a piece because it stems from one emotion, and reflects its source in everything you see."
W130L8 "You wait for God to help you, as you say: "It is impossible to see two worlds."
W130L8 "Let me accept the strength God offers me And see no value in this world, that I May find my freedom and deliverance.""
W130L10 "The unreal or the real, the false or true is what you see, and only what you see."
W130L11 "All you need say to any part of hell, whatever form it takes, is simply this: "It is impossible to see two worlds."
W131L10 "We will devote ten minutes to this goal three times today, and we will ask to see the rising of the real world to replace the foolish images that we held dear, with true ideas arising in the place of thoughts which have no meaning, no effect, and neither source nor substance in the truth."
W131L10 "Begin with this: "I ask to see a different world, and think A different kind of thoughts from those I made."
W131L11 "For several minutes watch your mind and see, although your eyes are closed, the senseless world you think is real."
W131L13 "Put out your hand and see how easily the door swings open with your one intent to go beyond it."
W131L13 "Angels light the way, so that all darkness vanishes and you are standing in a light so bright and clear that you can understand all things you see."
W131L13 "A tiny moment of surprise, perhaps, will make you pause before you realize the world you see before you in the light reflects the truth you knew, and did not quite forget in wandering away in dreams."
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."
W132L7 "Some see it suddenly on point of death, and rise to teach it."
W132L11 "Are these inherent in the world you see?"
W132L11 "If you are real the world you see is false, for God's creation is unlike the world in every way."
W132L14 "Today our purpose is to free the world from all the idle thoughts we ever held about it, and about all living things we see upon it."
W132L16 "You need not realize that healing comes to many brothers far across the world as well as to the ones you see near by, as you send out these thoughts to bless the world."
W133L14 "Should you begin to let yourself collect some needless burdens, or believe you see some difficult decisions facing you, be quick to answer with this simple thought: "I will not value what is valueless, For what is valuable belongs to me.""
W134L4 "It would see as right the plainly wrong; the loathsome as the good."
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."
W134L10 "Forgiveness stands between illusions and the truth, between the world you see and that which lies beyond, between the hell of guilt and Heaven's gate."
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."
W135L10 "You will not see the mind as separate from bodily conditions."
W135L11 "You do not heal, but merely take away the hope of healing, for you fail to see where hope must lie if it be meaningful."
W135L17 "And it does not see that here and now is everything it needs to guarantee a future quite unlike the past, without a continuity of any old ideas and sick beliefs."
W135L19 "But your defenses did not let you see His loving blessing shine in every step you ever took."
W136L8 "For see, this dust can make you suffer, twist your limbs and stop your heart, commanding you to die and cease to be."
W136L10 "Who else can see them and react to them as if they were the truth?"
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."
W140R44 "So do we start each practice period in this review with readying our minds to understand the lessons that we read, and see the meaning which they offer us."
W140R47 "Then repeat the two ideas you practice for the day unhurriedly, with time enough to see the gifts which they contain for you, and let them be received where they were meant to be."
W144L2 " 128) "The world I see has nothing that I want.""
W145L2 " 130) "It is impossible to see two worlds.""
W151L2 "You do not seem to doubt the world you see."
W151L3 "But how else do you judge the world you see?"
W151L12 "And He will reinterpret all you see, and all occurrences, each circumstance, and every happening which seems to touch on you in any way from His one frame of reference, wholly unified and sure."
W151L12 "And you will see the love beyond the hate, the constancy in change, the pure in sin, and only Heaven's blessing on the world."
W151L13 "Such is your resurrection, for your life is not a part of anything you see."
W151L13 "So will you see the holy Face of Christ in everything, and hear in everything no sound except the echo of God's Voice."
W152L6 "Is it not strange that you believe to think you made the world you see is arrogance?"
W152L7 "Humility would see at once these things are not of Him."
W152L7 "And can you see what God created not?"
W153L7 "What can save you now from your delusion of an angry god whose fearful image you believe you see at work in all the evils of the world?"
W153L11 "For you will not see the light until you offer it to all your brothers."
W153L12 "The game of fear is gladly laid aside when children come to see the benefits salvation brings."
W153L20 "You lay aside but what was never real, to look on Christ and see His sinlessness."
W154L1 "It is not our part to judge our worth, nor can we know what role is best for us; what we can do within a larger plan we cannot see in its entirety."
W155L9 "It goes before you now, that they may see something with which they can identify; something they understand to lead the way."
W156L5 "The Light you carry is their own, and thus they see in you their holiness, saluting you as Savior and as God."
W158L4 "For we but see the journey from the point at which it ended, looking back on it, imagining we make it once again; reviewing mentally what has gone by."
W158L8 "And this you give today, see no one as a body."
W158L10 "This lesson is not difficult to learn, if you remember in your brother you but see yourself."
W158L10 "If he be lost in sin so must you be; if you see light in him your sins have been forgiven by yourself."
W160L9 "They see Him as a stranger, for they do not recognize themselves."
W161L2 "It sees instead but fragments of the whole, for only thus could it invent the partial world you see."
W161L2 "The purpose of all seeing is to show you what you wish to see."
W161L3 "Yet He can use but what we made to teach us from a different point of view, so we can see a different use in everything."
W161L4 "We need to see a little that we learn a lot."
W161L10 "What you will see will sing to you of ancient melodies you will remember."
W161L11 "See him first as clearly as you can, in that same form to which you are accustomed."
W161L11 "See his face, his hands and feet, his clothing."
W161L11 "Watch him smile, and see familiar gestures which he makes so frequently."
W161L11 "Ask this of him that he may set you free: "Give me your blessing, holy Son of God, I would behold you with the eyes of Christ, And see my perfect sinlessness in you.""
W161L12 "And you will see him suddenly transformed from enemy to Savior; from the devil into Christ."
W163L6 "For here again we see an obvious position which we must accept if we be sane; what contradicts one thought entirely can not be true unless its opposite is proven false."
W163L8 "And it is given us to look past death and see the life beyond."
W164L5 "Now will you see it with the eyes of Christ."
W164L6 "And what you see becomes the healing and salvation of the world."
W164L7 "All that we see will but increase our joy, because its holiness reflects our own."
W164L9 "You may not see the value your acceptance gives the world."
W165L1 "What could keep from you what you already have, except your choice to see it not, denying it is there?"
W166L6 "Yet is he really tragic when you see that he is following the way he chose, and need but realize Who walks with him, and open up his treasures to be free?"
W168L4 "For in grace you see a light that covers all the world in love, and watch fear disappear from every face as hearts rise up and claim the light as theirs."
W169L12 "It is here that miracles are laid; to be returned by you from holy instants you receive, through grace, in your experience, to all who see the light that lingers on your face."
W170L7 "And those who see in him their safety have no guardian, no strength to call upon in danger, and no mighty warrior to fight for them."
W170L13 "In them we see Your glory, and in them we find our peace."
W170R56 "Yet a Savior must remain with those he teaches, seeing what they see, but still retaining in his mind the way which led him out, and now will lead you out with him."
W180L4 "But the experience of freedom and of peace that comes as you give up your tight control of what you see speaks for itself."
W181L2 "It is this which gives consistency to what you see."
W181L2 "This faith receives its only sure support from what you see in others past their sins."
W181L2 "And you will not transcend their sight and see the sinlessness that lies beyond."
W181L8 "This will become the only thing we see reflected in the world and in ourselves."
W182L4 "Repeat His Name and see how easily you will forget the names of all the gods you valued."
W182L8 "And to all other thoughts respond with This, and see God's Name replace the thousand little names you gave your thoughts, not realizing that there is One Name for all there is, and all that there will be."
W183L9 "He holds the might of Heaven in His hand and calls them friend, and gives His strength to them that they may see He would be Friend to them."
W184L1 "You have made up names for everything you see."
W184L2 "You see something where nothing is, and see as well nothing where there is unity; a space between all things, between all things and you."
W184L13 "But first you must accept One Name for all reality, and realize the many names you gave its aspects have distorted what you see but have not interfered with truth at all."
W184L14 "And we are given strength to see beyond them."
W185L2 "You have but to look upon the world you see around you to be sure how very few they are."
W186L3 "Today's idea may seem quite sobering until you see its meaning."
W187L3 "But you will not believe that this is done until you see the miracles it brings to everyone you look upon."
W187L7 "Your blessing lies on everyone who suffers when you choose to see all suffering as what it is."
W187L10 "And as we look within, we see the purity of Heaven shine in our reflection of our Father's Love."
W187L11 "What we have looked upon we would extend, for we would see it everywhere."
W187L11 "And to ensure this holy sight is ours, we offer it to everything we see."
W187L11 "For where we see it, it will be returned to us in form of lilies we can lay upon our altar, making it a home for Innocence Itself, Who dwells in us and offers us His Holiness as ours."
W189L1 "And with its eyes you will not see this light, for you are blinded by the world."
W189L1 "Yet you have eyes to see it."
W189L1 "To feel the Love of God within you is to see the world anew, shining in innocence, alive with hope, and blessed with perfect charity and love."
W189L3 "It is so different from the world you see through darkened eyes of malice and of fear that one belies the other."
W189L3 "A world in which forgiveness shines on everything and peace offers its gentle light to everyone is inconceivable to those who see a world of hatred, rising from attack, poised to avenge, to murder and destroy."
W189L4 "Their world reflects the quietness and peace that shines in them; the gentleness and innocence they see surrounding them; the joy with which they look out from the endless wells of joy within."
W189L4 "What they have felt in them they look upon, and see Its sure reflection everywhere."
W189L5 "What would you see?"
W190L5 "But it is you who have the power to dominate all things you see by merely recognizing what you are."
W190L6 "My holy brothers, think of this awhile; the world you see does nothing."
W191L1 "You do not see what you have done by giving to the world the role of jailor to the Son of God."
W191L2 "What have you done that this is what you see?"
W191L6 "You will not see a devastating image of yourself walking the world in terror, with the world twisting in agony because your fears have laid the mark of death upon its heart."
