T16G2 "The holy instant is His most helpful tool in protecting you from the attraction of guilt, the REAL lure in the special relationship."
T16G2 "You do NOT recognize that this IS its REAL appeal, for the ego has taught you that FREEDOM lies in it."

T27H11 "How COULD you doubt it, while you lie asleep, and dream in secret that its CAUSE is real?"
T27I2 "The dreaming of the world takes many forms, because the body seeks in many ways to PROVE it is autonomous and real."

T29H5 "No sadness and no suffering proclaims a message OTHER than an idol found, which represents a parody of life which, in its lifelessness, is really death, conceived as real and given living form."
T29H7 "And CAN a dream succeed in making real the pictures it projects outside itself?"
T29I3 "An idol is a wish, made tangible and given form, and thus perceived as real, and seen OUTSIDE the mind."
T29I4 "He can take NO form in which he EVER will be real."
T29J4 "But they are eager to forget that they made up the dream in which their toys are real, and recognize their wishes are their own."

T30G2 "You do NOT forgive the unforgivable, nor overlook a REAL attack that calls for punishment."
T30G2 "Salvation does not lie in being asked to make unnatural responses, which are inappropriate to what is real."
T30G2 "Instead, it merely asks that you respond appropriately to what is NOT real, by not perceiving what has not occurred."
T30G3 "This understanding is the ONLY change that lets the real world rise to take the place of dreams of terror."
T30G3 "And if it HAD a real foundation, pardon could have none."

T31D5 "Who would be willing to be turned AWAY from all the roadways of the world, UNLESS he understood their real futility?"
T31D5 "The learning that the world can offer but ONE choice, no matter what its form may be, is the beginning of acceptance that there is a REAL alternative instead."
T31D7 "There IS a choice which you have power to make, when you have seen the real alternatives."
T31E6 "But they can NOT be used to demonstrate the world is real."

W41L2 "Yet its effects cannot be cured because it is not real."

W53L5 "The fact that I see a world in which there is suffering and loss and death shows me that I am seeing only the representation of my insane thoughts, and am not allowing my real thoughts to cast their beneficent light on what I see."
W54L1 "They will either make a false world or lead me to the real one."
W54L1 "As the world I see arises from my thinking errors, so will the real world rise before my eyes as I let my errors be corrected."
W54L3 "I can also call upon my real thoughts, which share everything with everybody."

W54L5 "I would look upon the real world, and let it teach me that my will and the Will of God are one."

W70L6 "Then devote a few minutes with your eyes closed, to reviewing some of the external places where you have looked for salvation in the past, - in other people, in possessions, in various situations and events, and in self-concepts which you sought to make real."
W70L8 "Since all illusions of salvation have failed you, surely you do not want to remain in the clouds looking vainly for idols there, when you could so easily walk on into the light of real salvation."

T5I16 "If he will learn this NOW, he will be willing in accord with the last judgment, which is really only the Biblical reminder of the inevitability of self-INCLUSION."
T5I16 "This is what "Physician, heal thyself" really means."
T6B1 "But we know that nothing can be really explained only in negative terms."
T6B8 "But yet I know that they cannot really betray themselves or me, and that it is still on them that I MUST build my church."
T6B16 "Nor could they have described my reactions to Judas Iscariot as they did, if they had really understood ME."
T6E3 "You cannot really understand conflict until YOU fully understand one basic fact that the ego does not know."
T6E5 "This is perhaps the strangest perception of all, if you consider what it really involves."
T6G11 "This is still a preliminary step, because having and being are still not equated but it is more advanced than the first step, which is really only a thought REVERSAL."
T7C2 "However, its CONTENT is somewhat different in this world from what it REALLY is, because the thoughts it governs are VERY different from the thoughts in the Kingdom."
T7D4 "Therefore, it does not REALLY learn at all."
T7E1 "It is therefore a lesson which you CANNOT REALLY LEARN, and therefore CANNOT REALLY TEACH."

T8D8 "This IS your responsibility, because once you have really done this you WILL accept the Atonement for yourself."
T8E6 "I can tell you what to DO, but this will not really help you unless you collaborate by believing that I KNOW what to do."
T8G13 "This releases the mind from the temptation to see it in many lights, and gives it over ENTIRELY to the One Light in which it can be really understood at all."
T8J1 "This could not possibly have occurred unless the mind was already profoundly split, making it possible for IT to be afraid of what it really is."
T8J6 "THIS is really why you persist in asking the teacher who could not possibly teach you your will."
T8J8 "Both really fear both abandonment AND retaliation, but the former is more reactive against abandonment and the latter against retaliation."
T8J14 "Can you REALLY devote yourself to nothing?"
T8K2 "Let us suppose, then, that what you request of the Holy Spirit IS what you really want, but that YOU ARE STILL AFRAID OF IT."
T8K2 "In this case, he is not really asking for RELEASE from fear, but for the removal of a symptom WHICH HE HAS SELECTED."
T9C8 "Yet this question, ridiculous as it seems, is REALLY the crucial issue in the whole separation fantasy."
T9D1 "If he is a psychotherapist, he is more likely to start with the equally incredible idea that HE really believes in attack, and so does the patient, but it does not matter in EITHER case."

T9H7 "Is it not possible that you merely shifted from one dream to another without really wakening?"
T9I12 "Are you REALLY afraid of losing THIS?"
T9I12 "Look calmly at the logical conclusion of the ego's thought-system, and judge whether its offering is really what you want, for this IS what it offers you."

T9K1 "No-one can really DO this, but that you can THINK you can, and BELIEVE YOU HAVE, is beyond dispute."
T10A2 "Yet what would you say to someone who REALLY believed this question involves conflict?"
T10B4 "Do you REALLY believe that part of God can be missing or lost to Him?"
T10F9 "The ego can and does allow you to regard yourself as supercilious, unbelieving, "light hearted -," distant, emotionally shallow, callous, uninvolved, and even desperate, BUT NOT REALLY AFRAID."
T11B8 "This is what RECOGNIZING it really means."

T11C16 "When we have OVERCOME fear, not by hiding it, not by minimizing it, not by denying its full import in ANY way, THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL REALLY SEE."

T13D4 "Can you EXPECT to use your brothers as a means to solve the past, and still to see them as they really ARE?"
T14F8 "For you do NOT respond to what a brother REALLY offers you, but only to the particular perception of his offering by which your EGO judges it."
T14G14 "Only those who see they CANNOT know, UNLESS the effects of understanding are with them, can really learn at all."
T15H2 "For the ego REALLY BELIEVES that it can get, and KEEP, by MAKING GUILTY."
T15H6 "For it would much prefer to attack directly, and avoid delaying what it REALLY wants."
T15H9 "For what the ego really, wants you do NOT realize."
T16C5 "Yet can you REALLY believe that all that has happened, EVEN THOUGH you do NOT understand it, HAS NOT HAPPENED?"
T16C5 "And are you REALLY safer in maintaining the UNreality of what has happened, than you would be in joyously accepting it FOR WHAT IT IS, and giving thanks for it?"

T17E12 "And ONLY on this basis are you REALLY free to choose."
T17F9 "Forget not now the misery you REALLY found."
T17H6 "But what you REALLY blame him for is WHAT YOU DID TO HIM."
T18B3 "Do you REALLY think it strange that a world in which EVERYTHING is backward and upside down, arose from this?"
T18D8 "Let not time worry you, for all the fear that you experience is really past."
T18G12 "If you will consider what this "transportation" REALLY entails, you will realize that it is a sudden UNawareness of the body, and a joining of your self and SOMETHING ELSE, in which your mind ENLARGES to encompass it."

T19D3 "This is not really a change in your perception, for it is SIN that calls for punishment, NOT error."
T19G2 "What has the body REALLY given you, that justifies your strange belief that in it lies salvation?"
T19H5 "It is not REALLY punitive at all."
T19I1 "What seems to be the FEAR of death, is really its ATTRACTION."

T22C3 "You can be sure indeed that any seeming happiness which does not last is really fear."
T24C4 "If you think you are, and would defend your specialness against the truth of what you REALLY are, how can you know the truth?"
T25B5 "The Holy Spirit links the other part, the tiny, mad desire to be separate, different, and special, TO the Christ, to make the Oneness clear to what is REALLY One."
T25B6 "Because His purpose still is One with both the Father AND the Son, He KNOWS the Will of God, and what you REALLY will."

T25G6 "And nothing that you THINK you see in it is REALLY there at all."
T25H3 "Yet there is nothing ELSE you COULD believe, if you but looked at what it really IS."
T25I12 "Nor need you look to your experience WITHIN the world, which is but shadows of all that is REALLY happening within yourself."
T25I13 "How can the special REALLY understand that justice is the same for everyone?"
T26D5 "For no-one understands what is the same, and seems to choose where no choice really is."
T26E3 "Who could behold the Face of Christ, and NOT recall His Father as He really is?"
T26F7 "And how much can his own delusions about time and place affect a change in where he REALLY is?"
T26F10 "It MUST draw you from the past into the present, where you really ARE."
T26H11 "Or is it a mistake about your will, and what you REALLY are?"

T27C1 "And if you forgive him his transgressions, you but ADD to all the guilt that he has really earned."
T27C3 "And, by GIVING it, you grant your brother mercy, but retain the proof he is not REALLY innocent."
T27C13 "Consider how this self perception MUST extend, and do not overlook the fact that EVERY thought extends, because that is its purpose, being what it really IS."
T27F7 "This is because they really ARE the same, DESPITE their different forms."
T27F9 "Leave, then, the transfer of your learning to the One Who REALLY understands its laws, and Who will GUARANTEE that they remain unviolated and unlimited."
T27F10 "Yet all the witnesses that you behold will be FAR less than all there really ARE."
T27H7 "Once you were unaware of what the cause of everything the world appeared to thrust upon you, uninvited and unasked, must REALLY be."
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."
T28G4 "The body REPRESENTS the gap between the little bit of mind you call your own, and all the rest of what is REALLY yours."
T29C6 "But what is that except the state confusion really MEANS?"
T29C8 "For it asks that God be LESS than all He really is."
T29D3 "In glory will you see your brother then, and understand what REALLY fills the gap so long perceived as keeping you apart."
T29I1 "For idols are unrecognized as such, and never seen for what they really are."
T29I8 "It does not really matter more of what, - more beauty, more intelligence, more wealth; or even more affliction and more pain."
T30B4 "This cancels out the terms which you have set, and lets the ANSWER show you what the question MUST have really been."
T30B4 "And you will not get it, for it would destroy the day by robbing you of what you REALLY want."

T30B9 "That is really all."
T30D5 "But what is REALLY asked for CANNOT be denied."
T30F1 "Instead, there is a wish to understand all things created as they really are."

T30H2 "What have you really done, except to show there WAS no meaning there?"
T30H5 "How can communication REALLY be established, while the symbols which are used mean different things?"
T30H7 "And they are NOT in line with what you really are."
T30I6 "This will you look upon, when you decide there is not one appearance you would hold in place of what your brother really IS."
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."
T31A9 "But in guilt he has forgotten what he really is."
T31B2 "Thus is it really not a choice at all."
T31B7 "Nothing will hurt you in this holy place to which you come to listen silently, and learn the truth of what you really want."

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."
W7L2 "This first time idea is not really so strange as it may sound at first."
W7L3 "Do you, then, really see it?"
W8L1 "No one really sees anything."
W8L2 "The mind is actually blank when it does this, because it is not really thinking about anything."
W8L3 "The purpose of the exercises for today is to begin to train your mind to recognize when it is not really thinking at all."
W9L1 "You do not need to practice what you really understand."
W10L3 "This is merely another way of repeating our earlier statement that your mind is really a blank."
W13L1 "Today's idea is really another form of the preceding one, except that it is more specific as to the emotion aroused."
W13L5 "Whatever form such resistance may take, remind yourself that you are really afraid of such a thought because of the "vengeance" of the "enemy.""
W14L2 "If you do, it will be because you really understand what they are for."
W16L3 "We will practice this idea in many forms before you really understand it."
W17L1 "This idea is another step in the direction of identifying cause and effect as it really operates."
W17L1 "It is always the thought that comes first, despite the temptation to believe that it is really the other way around."
W17L3 "Regardless of what you may believe, you do not see anything which is really alive and really joyous."
W17L3 "That is because you are unaware as yet of any thoughts which are really true and therefore really happy."
W19L1 "Thinking and its results are really simultaneous, for cause and effect are never separate."
W20L4 "Therefore, as you repeat the idea, you are stating that you are determined to change your present state for a better one, and one you really want."
W21L3 "Remember that you do not really recognize what really arouses anger in you, and nothing that you believe in this connection means anything."
W22L3 "At the end of each practice period, ask yourself: "Is this the world I really want to see?""
W25L3 "Since you have no personal interests, your goals are really concerned with nothing."
W26L1 "That is because you believe that you can really attack."
W27L1 "You may feel hesitant about using the idea on the ground that you are not sure you really mean it."
W28L1 "Today we are really giving specific application to the idea for yesterday."
W28L2 "You see a lot of separate things about you, which really means you are not seeing at all."
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."
W35L3 "By establishing your Source it establishes your identity, and it describes you as you must really be in truth."
W40L2 "You can practice quite well under almost any circumstance, if you really want to."
W49L2 "It is really the only part there is."
W52L5 "Would I not rather join the thinking of the universe than to obscure all that is really mine with my pitiful and meaningless "private" thoughts?"
W53L4 "Let me remember the power of my decision, and recognize where I really abide."
W57L3 "It must be, then, that the world is really a place where he can be set free."
W64L4 "Therefore every time you choose whether or not to fulfill your function, you are really choosing whether to be happy or not."
W64L5 "Prepare yourself in advance for all the decisions you will make today by remembering that they are all really very simple."
W64L5 "Can such a simple decision really be difficult to make?"
W65L3 "Today, and for a number of days to follow, set aside ten to fifteen minutes for a more sustained practice period in which you try to understand and accept what today's idea really means."
W65L7 "Finally, repeat the idea for today once more and devote the rest of the practice period to trying to focus on its importance to you; the relief its acceptance will bring you by resolving your conflicts once and for all, and the extent to which you really want salvation in spite of your own foolish ideas to the contrary."
W66L1 "This is because you do not really see the connection."
W66L8 "Does the ego really have gifts to give, being itself an illusion and offering only the illusion of gifts?"
W69L4 "Therefore you do not attempt to go through them and past them, which is the only way in which you would be really convinced of their lack of substance."
W70L4 "Today we will practice realizing that God's Will and ours are really the same in this."
W70L4 "God wants us to be healed, and we do not really want to be sick because it makes us unhappy."

W73L7 "You have no will that can really oppose it, and you do not want to do so."
W73L7 "Above all else you want the freedom to remember who you really are."
W73L11 "In the shorter practice periods, again make a declaration of what you really want."
W76L3 "You really think that you would starve unless you have stacks of green paper strips and piles of metal discs."
W76L3 "You really think a small round pellet or some fluid pushed into your veins through a sharpened needle will ward off death."
W76L3 "You really think you are alone unless another body is with you."
W76L5 "The body's suffering is a mask the mind holds up to hide what really suffers."
W77L6 "In doing this, you do not really ask for anything."
W79L1 "Even if it is really solved already, you will still have the problem because you cannot recognize that it has been solved."
W79L1 "The problem of separation, which is really the only problem, has already been solved."
W91L6 "But what you really are must be revealed to you."
W96L4 "If you are physical your mind is gone from your self-concept, for it has no place in which it could be really part of you."
W98L7 "His confidence in you will bring the light to all the words you say, and you will go beyond their sound to what they really mean."
W102L1 "Yet this belief is surely shaken now, at least enough to let you question it, and to suspect it really makes no sense."
W106L1 "If you will lay aside the ego's voice however loudly it may seem to call; if you will not accept its petty gifts which give you nothing that you really want; if you will listen with an open mind which has not told you what salvation is; then you will hear the mighty Voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in Its messages."
W120L2 "Today I lay aside All sick illusions of myself, and let My Father tell me Who I really am."
W126L10 "Repeat today's idea, and ask for help in understanding what it really means."
W127L4 "No course whose purpose is to teach you what you really are could fail to emphasize there is no difference in what you are and what love is."
W129L3 "Is it loss to find all things you really want and know they have no ending, and they will remain exactly as you want them throughout time?"
W129L6 "This world holds nothing that you really want, but what you choose instead you want indeed!"
W129L7 "I choose to see that world instead of this, For here is nothing that I really want.""
W130L1 "Your values are determiners of this, for what you value you must want to see, believing what you see is really there."
W130L2 "Yet who can really hate and love at once?"
W131L3 "Otherwise, you still are free to choose a goal that lies beyond the world and every worldly thought, and one which comes to you from an idea relinquished yet remembered, old yet new; an echo of a heritage forgot, yet holding everything you really want."
W131L4 "Be glad as well to learn you search for Heaven, and must find the goal you really want."
W131L5 "You will reach the goal you really want as certainly as God created you in sinlessness."
W131L6 "It is as far removed from time as is a tiny candle from a distant star, or what you chose from what you really want."
W131L12 "Nothing but this has any meaning now; no other goal is valued now nor sought; nothing before this door you really want, and only what lies past it do you seek."
W133L7 "You therefore will not recognize the things you really have, denying they are there."
W134L4 "Thus is forgiveness really but a sin, like all the rest."
W135L25 "You give up nothing in these times today when, undefended you present yourself to your Creator as you really are."
W136L19 "Do not be confused about what must be healed, but tell yourself: "I have forgotten what I really am, For I mistook my body for myself."
W137L4 "The separation sickness would impose has never really happened."
W138L2 "It is not really thus."
W138L4 "You need to be reminded that you think a thousand choices are confronting you when there is really only one to make."
W139L3 "To be alive and not to know yourself is to believe that you are really dead."
W139L5 "But you do not ask what part of you can really doubt yourself."
W139L5 "It cannot really be a part of you that asks this question, for it asks of one who knows the answer."
W139L6 "Atonement remedies the strange idea that it is possible to doubt yourself and be unsure of what you really are."
W139L11 "We can remember it for everyone, for in creation are all minds as one, and in our memory is the recall how dear our brothers are to us in truth, how much a part of us is every mind, how faithful they have really been to us, and how our Father's Love contains us all."

W184L8 "His true identity is hidden from you by what you believe he really is."
W185L7 "Let us today devote our practicing to recognizing that we really mean the words we say."
W185L10 "For thus you reach to what they really want, and join your own intent with what they seek above all things, perhaps unknown to them, but sure to you."
W190L6 "And it will change entirely as you elect to change your mind, and choose the joy of God as what you really want."
W194L4 "And so you are not asked to understand the lack of sequence really found in time."
W194L6 "If you can see the lesson for today as the deliverance it really is, you will not hesitate to give as much consistent effort as you can to make it be a part of you."
W227L2 "And so today we find our glad return to Heaven, which we never really left."
W228L2 "And I stand ready to receive Your Word alone for what I really am.""
W231L1 "For there is nothing else that I could ever really want to find."
W250W41 "And being mad, it sees illusions where truth should be, and where it really is."
W251L2 "What we denied ourselves You have restored, and only that is what we really want.""

W340W134 "Yet faith will bring its witnesses to show that what it rested on is really there."
W358L1 ""You Who remember what I really am alone remember what I really want."
W365EP2 "Therefore obey your will, and follow Him Whom you accepted as your voice, to speak of what you really want and really need."
M1A3 "Yet it is impossible not to use the content of any situation on behalf of what you really teach and therefore learn."
M3A4 "Time really, then, goes backward to an instant so ancient that it is beyond all memory and past even the possibility of remembering."
M3A5 "For the teacher is not really the one who does the teaching."
M5B4 "Because he has valued what is really valueless, he will not generalize the lesson for fear of loss and sacrifice."
M5B7 "Now must the teacher of God understand that he did not really know what was valuable and what was valueless."
M5B7 "All that he really learned so far was that he did not want the valueless and that he did want the valuable."
M5B7 "He must learn to lay all judgment aside and ask only what he really wants in every circumstance."
