T11J12 "For guilt establishes that you WILL BE punished for what you have done, and thus depends on one-dimensional time, proceeding from past to future."
T11J13 "And immortality is the opposite of time, for time passes away, while immortality is constant."
T11J13 "The future IN TIME is ALWAYS associated with expiation, and ONLY guilt could induce a sense of NEED for expiation."
T12B5 "Most of the time you DISMISS it, BUT YOU DO NOT DISMISS THE EGO'S THOUGHT SYSTEM."
T12D4 "The ego has a very strange notion of time, and it is with this notion that the questioning might well begin."
T12D4 "The ego invests heavily in the past, and in the end, believes that the past is the ONLY aspect of time that is meaningful."
T12D7 "It is evident that the Holy Spirit's perception of time is the exact opposite of the ego's."
T12D7 "And the reason is equally clear, for they perceive the GOAL of time as diametrically opposed."
T12D8 "The Holy Spirit interprets time's PURPOSE as rendering the need for it UNNECESSARY."
T12D8 "Thus does He regard the function of time as temporary, serving only His teaching function, which is temporary by definition."
T12D8 "HIS emphasis is therefore on the ONLY aspect of time which CAN extend to the infinite."
T12D9 "The ego, on the other hand, regards the function of time as one of extending itself IN PLACE of eternity."
T12D9 "For, like the Holy Spirit, the ego interprets the goal of time as its own."
T12D9 "The continuity of past and future, UNDER ITS DIRECTION, is the only purpose it perceives in time, and it closes over the present, so that no gap in the EGO's continuity can occur."
T12D9 "ITS continuity, then, would KEEP you in time, while the Holy Spirit would release you FROM it."
T12D10 "You, too, will interpret the function of time as you interpret yours."
T12D10 "If you accept your function in the world of time AS HEALING, you will emphasize ONLY the aspect of time in which healing can occur."
T12D10 "And time WILL be as you interpret it, for OF ITSELF it IS nothing."
T12F4 "Time can release as well as imprison, depending on whose interpretation of it you use."
T12F4 "You would DESTROY time's continuity by breaking it into past, present, and future, FOR YOUR OWN PURPOSES."
T12F6 "It extends to ALL aspects of consciousness AT THE SAME TIME, and thus enables them to REACH EACH OTHER."
T12F6 "The present is before time WAS, and WILL BE when time is no more."
T12F7 "In this one, still dimension of time, which does not change, and where there is no sight of what you were, you look at Christ, and call His witnesses to shine on you, BECAUSE YOU CALLED THEM FORTH."
T12F8 "Now is the time for salvation, for NOW is the release from time."
T12G2 "You do not really want the world you see, for it has disappointed you since time began."
T12G2 "The roads you made have led you nowhere, and no city that you built has withstood the crumbling assault of time."
T12G7 "For all else you have LENT yourself in time, and it WILL fade."
T12G8 "Love waits on welcome, NOT on time, and the real world is but your welcome of what always was."
T12G11 "In time, He gives you all the things that you need have, and will renew them as long as you have need of them."
T12G11 "Therefore, He has no investment in the things that He supplies, except to make certain that you will NOT use them on behalf of lingering in time."
T12G14 "THIS is the only REAL need to be fulfilled in time."
T12G15 "Healing in time IS needed, for joy cannot establish its eternal reign where sorrow dwells."
T13B2 "His message speaks of timelessness in time, and that is why Christ's vision looks on everything with love."
T13B3 "Everyone seen WITHOUT the past thus brings you nearer to the end of time, by bringing healed and healing sight into the darkness, and ENABLING THE WORLD TO SEE."
T13B6 "And suddenly, time will be over, and we will all unite in the Eternity of God the Father."
T13I1 "The first in time means nothing, but the First in Eternity is God the Father, Who is both First and One."
T14E1 "The making of time, to TAKE THE PLACE of timelessness, lay in the decision to BE NOT as you WERE."
T14E2 "It CANNOT change with time, or mood, or chance."
T14F1 "The reflections that you accept into the mirror of your minds in time, but bring eternity nearer or farther."
T14F2 "But eternity ITSELF is beyond ALL time."
T14F2 "Reach out of time and touch it, with the help of its reflection IN you, and you will turn FROM time to holiness, as surely as the reflection of holiness calls everyone to lay all guilt aside."
T14G11 "He does not see time as you do."
T14G11 "And each miracle He offers you, CORRECTS your use of time, and makes it His."
T15A1 "Can you imagine what it means to have no cares, no worries, no anxieties, but merely to be perfectly calm and quiet all the time?"
T15A1 "Yet that is what time is for; to learn just that, and nothing more."
T15A1 "When this has happened, you will no longer need a teacher, or time in which to learn."
T15A2 "One of the sources of perceived discouragement from which you suffer, is your belief that THIS TAKES TIME, and that the results of the Holy Spirit's teaching are far in the future."
T15A2 "For the Holy Spirit USES time in His OWN way, and is NOT bound to it."
T15A2 "Time is His friend in teaching."
T15A2 "But all the waste that time seems to bring with it, is due but to your identification with the ego, who uses time to support ITS belief in destruction."
T15A2 "The ego, like the Holy Spirit, uses time to convince you of the inevitability of the goal and end of learning."
T15B1 "The ego IS an ally of time, but NOT a friend."
T15B4 "And it is THIS the ego's version of time supports."
T15B4 "The only time the ego allows anyone to look upon, with some amount of equanimity is the PAST."
T15B6 "There is NO ESCAPE from fear, in the ego's use of time."
T15B6 "For time, according to its teaching, is nothing but a teaching device for COMPOUNDING guilt, until it becomes all-encompassing, and demands vengeance forever."
T15B8 "This lesson takes NO time."
T15B8 "For what IS time, WITHOUT a past and future?"
T15B8 "It HAS taken time to misguide you so completely, but it takes no time at all to BE what you ARE."
T15B8 "Begin to practice the Holy Spirit's USE of time, as a teaching aid to happiness and peace."
T15B8 "Take this very instant, NOW, and think of it as ALL THERE IS of time."
T15B8 "From this holy instant, wherein holiness is born, you will go forth in time without fear, and with no sense of change WITH time."
T15B9 "Time is inconceivable without change, and holiness does NOT change."
T15B10 "Could you not give so SHORT a time to the Holy Spirit, for your Salvation?"
T15B11 "They attest to YOUR willingness to BE released, and to offer time to the Holy Spirit, for HIS use of it."
T15B11 "Practice GIVING this blessed instant of freedom to all who are ENSLAVED by time, and thus make time their friend FOR them."
T15B13 "Time is your friend, if you leave it to the Holy Spirit to use."
T15B13 "He Who transcends time FOR you, understands what it is FOR."
T15B13 "Holiness lies not in time, but in Eternity."
T15B13 "His changeless state is BEYOND time, for his purity remains forever beyond attack, and without variability."
T15B13 "Time stands still in his holiness, and changes not."
T15B13 "And so it is no longer time at all."
T15C1 "The Atonement is in time, but not FOR time."
T15C1 "What holds remembrance of God, CANNOT be bound by time."
T15C2 "What can take time, when ALL the obstacles to learning it have been removed?"
T15C2 "Truth is so far beyond time, that ALL of it happens at once."
T15C2 "For as it was created one, so its oneness depends not on time at all."
T15C2 "Be not concerned with time, and fear not the instant of holiness which will remove ALL fear."
T15C2 "It WILL come, being the lesson God gives you, through the Teacher HE has appointed, to translate time to eternity."
T15C3 "His joy is not contained in time."
T15C3 "The blessed instant reaches out to ENCOMPASS time, as God extends Himself to encompass you."
T15D2 "But what you do not realize, each time you choose, is that your choice is your evaluation OF YOURSELF."
T15D3 "There is a deep responsibility you owe yourself, and one which you must learn to remember ALL the time."
T15D5 "Let this question be asked you by the Holy Spirit in you, EVERY time you make a decision."
T15E1 "This course is not beyond IMMEDIATE learning, unless you prefer to believe that WHAT GOD WILLS TAKES TIME."
T15E5 "You can claim the holy instant ANY time and ANYWHERE you want it."
T15E5 "And the extent to which you learn to be willing to ACCEPT me, IS the measure of the time in which the holy instant will be yours."
T15E5 "I call to you to make the holy instant yours AT ONCE, for the release from littleness in the mind of the host of God, depends on willingness, and NOT on time."
T15E6 "The simple reason, stated simply as what it is, is this: The holy instant is a time in which you receive AND GIVE perfect communication."
T15E6 "This means, however, that it is a time in which your mind is OPEN, both to receive AND give."
T15F10 "In time, you have been told to offer miracles as Christ directs, and let the Holy Spirit bring to you those who are seeking you."
T15G5 "But the AWARENESS of changelessness comes swiftly, as the veil of time is pushed aside."
T15I1 "The holy instant does not REPLACE the need for learning, for the Holy Spirit must not leave you as your Teacher, until the holy instant has extended far beyond time."
T15J1 "It IS in your power, IN TIME, to delay the perfect union of the Father and the Son."
T15J1 "Neither time nor season means anything in eternity."
T15J1 "The time of Christ we celebrate TOGETHER."
T15J2 "The holy instant is truly the time of Christ."
T15J3 "The time of Christ is the time appointed for the gift of freedom, offered to everyone."
T15J3 "For it is in your power to make the time of Christ be NOW."
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."
T15K2 "No fear can touch the Host Who cradles God in the time of Christ."
T15K8 "Let no despair darken the joy of Christmas, for the time of Christ is meaningless APART from joy."
T15K8 "Such is the message of the time of Christ, which I give you, that YOU may give it, and return it to the Father, Who gave it to me."
T15K9 "For in the time of Christ, communication with Him is restored, and He joins us in the celebration of His Son's Creation."
T15K10 "This is the week-end in which a new year will be born from the time of Christ."
T16C10 "Is it not time you brought these facts TOGETHER, and made SENSE of them?"
T16E13 "Only in time does interference in God's completion SEEM to be possible."
T16E13 "The bridge that He would carry you across, lifts you FROM time into eternity."
T16E13 "Waken from time, and answer fearlessly the call of Him Who gave eternity to you in your creation."
T16F16 "This year is thus the time to make the EASIEST decision that ever confronted you, and also the ONLY one."
T16G5 "For a time the body is still seen, but NOT exclusively, as it is seen here."
T16G7 "Time is kind, and, if you use it FOR reality, it will keep gentle pace with you, in your transition."
T16G7 "The period of disorientation, which precedes the actual transition, is far shorter than the time it took to fix your minds so firmly on illusions."
T16H7 "For a time, you may attempt to bring illusions INTO the holy instant, to hinder your full awareness of the COMPLETE DIFFERENCE, in ALL respects, between your EXPERIENCE of truth and illusion."
T16H7 "Yet the holy instant IS eternal, and your illusions of time will NOT prevent the timeless from being what it is, nor you from EXPERIENCING it as it is."
T16H9 "In the holy instant, this is done for you IN TIME, to bring to you the true condition of Heaven."
T17C2 "This little step, so small it has escaped your notice, is a stride through time into eternity, and beyond all ugliness, into beauty that will enchant you, and will never cease to cause you wonderment at its perfection."
T17C4 "The perception of the real world will be so short, that you will barely have time to thank God for it."
T17D5 "Time is indeed unkind to the unholy relationship."
T17D5 "For time IS cruel in the ego's hands, as it is kind when used for gentleness."
T17E11 "It is a picture of timelessness, set in a frame of time."
T17E11 "For, as the whole thought-system of the ego lies in ITS gifts, so the whole of Heaven lies in this instant, borrowed from eternity, and set in time for YOU."
T17E14 "The other picture is lightly framed, for time cannot contain eternity."
T17F2 "This invitation is ACCEPTED IMMEDIATELY, and the Holy Spirit wastes no time in introducing the practical results of asking Him to enter."
T17F5 "For the CONTRAST would be obscured, and the ego given time to re-interpret each slow step, according to its liking."
T17F6 "THIS IS THE TIME FOR FAITH."
T17F7 "Have faith in EACH OTHER in what but SEEMS to be a trying time."
T17F12 "The experience of an instant, HOWEVER compelling it may be, is easily forgotten, if you allow time to close over it."
T17F12 "It must be kept shining and gracious, in your AWARENESS of time, but not CONCEALED within it."
T17F13 "You REINFORCE this, every time YOU ATTACK EACH OTHER, for the attack MUST blind you to YOURSELF."
T18B1 "That ONE error, which brought truth to illusion, infinity to time, and life to death, was all you ever made."
T18C3 "No limits on substitution are laid upon you; for a time, it seems as if the world were GIVEN you, to make it what you will."
T18C6 "All your time is spent in dreaming."
T18D8 "Let not time worry you, for all the fear that you experience is really past."
T18D8 "Time has been re-adjusted to help us do, together, what your separate pasts would hinder."
T18F7 "Whichever is saner at the time when threat is perceived, should remember how deep is his indebtedness to the other, and how much gratitude is due him."
T18G14 "Time is not relevant; it can occur with something past, present, or anticipated."
T18H3 "Time controls it entirely."
T18H4 "This course does not attempt to teach more than they learned in time."
T18H4 "But it does aim at SAVING time."
T18H5 "But the means are tedious and very time consuming, for all of them LOOK TO THE FUTURE for release from a state of present unworthiness and inadequacy."
T18H6 "A HOLY RELATIONSHIP IS A MEANS OF SAVING TIME."
T18H7 "Here is the ultimate release that everyone will one day find in his own way, at his own time."
T18H7 "We do not need this time."
T18H7 "Time has been SAVED for you, because you are together."
T18H7 "This is the special means this course is using, to save you time."
T18H8 "Save time for me by only this one preparation, and practice doing NOTHING ELSE."
T18H9 "Here is the quick and open door through which you slip past centuries of effort, and ESCAPE from time."
T18H9 "For here is time denied, and past and future gone."
T18H9 "Who need do nothing has no need for time."
T18K2 "Love is not learned, because there never WAS a time in which you knew it not."
T19B15 "And learn how NOT to interfere with it, and make it slave to time."
T19D5 "In time, the Holy Spirit CLEARLY sees the Son of God can make mistakes."
T19D5 "Yet you do NOT share His recognition of the difference between time and eternity."
T19D5 "And when correction is completed, time IS eternity."
T19D5 "Time is like a downward spiral, that seems to travel down from a long, unbroken line, along another plane, but which in no way BREAKS the line, or interferes with its smooth continuousness."
T19D7 "This One can teach you how to look on time differently, and to see BEYOND it."
T19J9 "The miracle of life is ageless, born in time, but nourished in eternity."
T19L10 "It is almost Easter, the time of Resurrection."
T20B4 "The time of Easter is a time of JOY, and not of mourning."
T20B4 "For Easter is the time of YOUR salvation, along with mine."
T20C6 "Listen and hear this carefully, nor think it but a dream; -- a careless thought to play with, or a toy you would pick up from time to time and then put by."
T20C8 "Your home has called to you since time began, nor have you ever failed entirely to hear."
T20E8 "You may wonder how you can BE at peace when, while you are in time, there is so much that must be done BEFORE the way to peace is open."
T20F1 "Only in time can anything BE lost, but never lost forever."
T20F1 "So do the parts of God's Son gradually join in time, and with each joining is the end of time brought nearer."
T20F2 "Each speaks in time of what is far BEYOND it."
T20F5 "The little breath of eternity that runs through time like golden light is all the same."
T20F6 "You look upon each holy instant as a DIFFERENT point in time."
T20G8 "In that unholy instant time was born, and bodies made to house the mad idea, and give it the ILLUSION of reality."
T20G8 "And so it SEEMED to have a home, that held together for a little while in time, and vanished."
T20G13 "This is no time for sadness."
T20H5 "The unholy instant IS the time of bodies."
T21E4 "This part has seen your brother, and RECOGNIZED him perfectly, since time began."
T21F6 "Nor does the Will of God wait upon time to be accomplished."
T21H10 "It IS the same as are the other three, EXCEPT IN TIME."
T21H13 "Elusive happiness, or happiness in changing forms that shift with time and place, is an illusion that has no meaning."
T21I5 "Here is the future NOW, for time is powerless BECAUSE of your desire for what will NEVER change."
T22A1 "No two can look on sin TOGETHER, for they COULD never see it in the same place and time."
T22B11 "For what is time to what was ALWAYS so?"
T22C3 "But sorrow CAN be turned to joy, for time gives way to the eternal."
T22C3 "But everything in time can CHANGE with time."
T22C8 "For time YOU made, and time you CAN command."
T22C8 "You are no more a slave to time than to the world you made."
T22C12 "How still it rests, in time and yet beyond, immortal yet on earth."
T22C12 "Time waits upon its will, and earth will BE as it would HAVE it be."
T22G6 "No trace of anything in time can long remain in minds that serve the timeless."
T23A5 "Do not let time intrude upon your sight of him."
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."
T24G6 "And it is HE they look for everywhere, and find no sight or place or time where He is NOT."
T24G7 "Yet will you choose in countless situations, and through time which seems to have no end, until the truth be your decision."
T24G12 "Now you are merely asked that you pursue another goal with far LESS vigilance, with little effort and with little time, and with the power of God maintaining it, and promising success."
T24H4 "The body, yes, a little; not from time, but temporarily."
T24H6 "This is the state of true creation, found not within time, but in eternity."
T24H7 "A perfect Being, all-encompassing and all-encompassed, nothing to add and nothing taken FROM; not born of size nor weight nor time, nor held to limits or uncertainties of ANY kind."
T25B6 "All this takes note of time and place AS IF they were discrete, for while YOU think that part of YOU is separate, the concept of a Oneness JOINED as one is meaningless."
T25C2 "In NO respect, at ANY time or place, has ANYTHING but fear and guilt been your reward."
T25D6 "For he has come with Heaven's help within him, ready to lead him OUT of darkness into light at ANY time."
T25D6 "The time he chooses can be ANY time, for help is there, awaiting but his choice."

T25E6 "No other place, no other state nor time."
T25F3 "Christ stands before you both, each time you look on one another."
T25G5 "Forgiveness is the ONLY function meaningful in time."
T25G5 "Then is time no more."
T25G5 "But WHILE in time, there is still much to do."
T25G5 "He HAS a special part in time, for so he chose, and choosing it, made it for himself."
T25G7 "In light, you see it is your SPECIAL FUNCTION in the plan to save the Son of God from ALL attack, and let him understand that he is safe, as he has ALWAYS been, and will remain in time and in eternity alike."
T25H8 "The FORM is suited to your special needs, and to the special time and place in which you think you find yourself, and where you can be free of place and time, and ALL that you believe must limit you."
T25H8 "The Son of God can NOT be bound by time or place, or anything God did NOT will."
T26B5 "You sacrifice YOUR innocence with his, and die each time you see in him a sin deserving death."
T26B6 "Born again each instant, untouched by time, and FAR beyond the reach of ANY sacrifice of life OR death."
T26C1 "It WILL recur, and then recur again and yet again, until it has been answered for ALL time, and will not rise again in ANY form."
T26C3 "And yet you COULD not think so, if you saw them vanish one by one, WITHOUT regard to size, complexity, or place and time, or ANY attribute which you perceive that makes each one seem different from the rest."
T26C4 "Each time you keep a problem for YOURSELF to solve, or judge that it is one which HAS no resolution, you have made it great, and past the hope of healing."
T26D2 "It is not a place, and WHEN you reach it is APART from time."
T26D3 "Salvation IS a borderland, where place and time and choice have meaning still, and yet it can be seen that they are temporary, OUT of place, and EVERY choice has been ALREADY made."
T26F1 "There are but TWO directions you can take, while time remains and choice is meaningful."
T26F2 "Nothing is ever lost but time, which, in the end, IS nothing."
T26F3 "Time lasted but an instant in your mind, with NO effect upon eternity."
T26F3 "And so is ALL time past, and everything EXACTLY as it was before the way to nothingness was made."
T26F3 "The tiny tick of time, in which the first mistake was made, and ALL of them within that ONE mistake, held also the Correction for that one, and ALL of them that came within the first."
T26F3 "And in that tiny instant time was gone, for that was all it ever was."
T26F4 "To you who still believe you live in time, and know not it is gone, the Holy Spirit still guides you through the infinitely small and senseless maze you still perceive in time, though it has long since gone."
T26F5 "So VERY long ago, for such a tiny interval of time that not one note in Heaven's song was missed."
T26F5 "Yet, in each unforgiving act or thought, in every judgment, and in all belief in sin is that one instant still called back, as if it could be made again in time."
T26F6 "Forgiveness is the great release from time."
T26F6 "And who can stand upon a distant shore, and dream himself across an ocean, to a place and time that have long since gone by?"
T26F6 "Yet can he still IMAGINE he is elsewhere, and in another time."
T26F7 "And how much can his own delusions about time and place affect a change in where he REALLY is?"
T26F8 "Forget the time of terror that has been so long ago corrected and undone."
T26F8 "Would He allow His Son to lose his way along a road long since a distant memory of a time gone by?"
T26F10 "The shadow voices do not CHANGE the laws of time or of eternity."
T26F11 "The real world is the second part of the hallucination time and death are real, and have existence which can be perceived."
T26F11 "This terrible illusion was denied in but the time it took for God to give His Answer to illusion for ALL time and EVERY circumstance."
T26F11 "Each day, and every minute in each day, and every instant that each minute holds, you but relive the single instant when the time of terror was replaced by Love."
T26F12 "And ALL of time is but the mad belief that what is over is still here and now."
T26H3 "God's Answer is eternal, though It operates in time, where It is needed."
T26H3 "But, because It IS of God, the laws of time do not affect Its workings."
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 "If it has been projected BEYOND your minds, you think of it as time."
T26I2 "Unless you so perceive it, you WILL be afraid of it, believing that the risk of loss is great between the time its PURPOSE is made yours, and its EFFECTS will come to you."
T26I3 "Do not project this fear to time, for time is NOT the enemy that you perceive."
T26I3 "Time is as neutral as the body is, except in terms of what you see it FOR."
T26I3 "This makes the interval BETWEEN the time in which forgiveness is withheld and given seem dangerous, with terror justified."
T26I5 "It stands ALREADY there, in present grace, within the only interval of time which sin and fear have overlooked, but which is all there IS to time."
T26I5 "The working out of ALL correction takes no time at all."
T26I5 "Why wait 'til they unfold in time, and fear they may NOT come, although already THERE?"
T26I6 "This is NOT reason, for it is unjust, and clearly hints at punishment until the time of liberation is at hand."
T26I8 "Delay is senseless, and the reason that would maintain effects of PRESENT cause must be delayed until a FUTURE time is merely a denial of the fact that consequence and cause MUST come as one."
T26I8 "And do not let it be DISGUISED as time, and so preserved BECAUSE its form is changed, and what it IS cannot be recognized."
T26J4 "When They come, time's purpose is fulfilled."
T27D5 "It lets the Holy Spirit make EXCHANGE of pictures possible, until the time when aids are meaningless, and learning done."
T27E2 "Thus it MUST be that time is not involved, and every problem can be answered now."
T27F2 "Miracles wait not on time."
T27H8 "Careless indeed of him this mind must be, as thoughtless of his peace and happiness as is the weather, or the time of day."
T27H9 "Be glad indeed it is, for thus are YOU the ONE decider of your destiny in time."
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."
T27I1 "In the brief time allotted it to live, it seeks for other bodies as its friends and enemies."
T27I3 "The body's serial adventures, from the time of birth to dying is the theme of every dream the world has ever had."
T27I5 "No-one believes there really was a time when he knew nothing of a body, and could never have conceived this world as real."
T27I6 "Together, we can laugh them BOTH away, and understand that time can NOT intrude upon eternity."
T27I6 "It IS a joke to think that time can come to circumvent eternity, which MEANS there is no time."
T27I6 "A timelessness in which is time made real; a Part of God Which can attack Itself; a separate brother as an enemy; a mind WITHIN a body; all are forms of circularity, whose ending starts at its beginning, ending at its cause."
T28B2 "But ONLY your desire made the link, and ONLY you have held it to a part of time where guilt appears to linger still."
T28B2 "The Holy Spirit's use of memory is quite APART from time."
T28B3 "And thus do their effects appear to be INCREASED by time, which TOOK AWAY their cause."
T28B4 "Yet time is but another phase of what DOES NOTHING."
T28B4 "Time neither takes away, nor can restore."
T28B6 "It has never changed, because there never was a time in which He did not keep it safely in your mind."
T28B7 "The miracle reminds you of a Cause forever present, perfectly untouched by time and interference."
T28B8 "There WAS no time in which His Son could be condemned for what was causeless, and AGAINST His Will."
T28B9 "It reaches gently from that quiet time, and from the mind it healed in quiet then, to other minds to SHARE its quietness."
T28B9 "Born out of sharing, there can BE no pause in time to cause the miracle delay in hastening to all unquiet minds, and bringing them an instant's stillness, when the memory of God returns to them."
T28B10 "He to Whom time is given offers thanks for every quiet instant given Him."
T28D8 "Here can the lean years enter not, for time waits not upon this feast, which HAS no end."
T28F6 "Truth has left no room for them in ANY place or time."

T29B1 "Conditional upon the right to separate will you agree to meet from time to time, and keep apart in intervals of separation, which protect you from the "sacrifice" of love."
T29B1 "THE BODY SAVES YOU, for it gets away from total "sacrifice," and gives you time in which to build again your separate selves, which you believe DIMINISH as you meet."

W1IN13 "It is recommended that each exercise be repeated several times a day, preferably in a different place each time, and if possible in every situation in which you spend any long period of time."
W4L3 "This is a major exercise, and will be repeated from time to time in somewhat different form."
W7L2 "Old ideas about time are very difficult to change, because everything you believe is rooted in time, and depends on your not learning these new ideas about it."
W7L2 "Yet that is precisely why you need new ideas about time."
W7L2 "This first time idea is not really so strange as it may sound at first."
W8L1 "The mind's preoccupation with the past is the cause of the total misconception about time from which your seeing suffers."
W8L1 "Your mind cannot grasp the present, which is the only time there is."
W8L1 "It therefore cannot understand time, and cannot, in fact, understand anything."
W10L2 "This is the second time we have used this kind of idea."
W10L2 "This time, the idea is introduced with "My thoughts" instead of "These thoughts," and no link is made overtly with the things around you."
W10L5 "Today's idea can obviously serve for any thought that distresses you at any time."
W10L5 "It is not recommended that this time period be extended, and it should be reduced to half a minute or even less if you experience discomfort."
W12L2 "Look around you, this time quite slowly."
W12L2 "Try to pace yourself so that the slow shifting of your glance from one thing to another involves a fairly constant time interval."
W12L2 "Do not allow the time of the shift to become markedly longer or shorter, but try, instead, to keep a measured, even tempo throughout."
W12L2 "You teach yourself this as you give whatever your glance rests on equal attention and equal time."
W12L4 "Be sure that you do not alter the time intervals between applying today's idea to what you think is pleasant and what you think is unpleasant."
W13L4 "The exercises for today, which should be done about three or four times, for not more than a minute or so at most each time, are to be practiced in a somewhat different way from the preceding ones."
W15L4 "The idea should be repeated quite slowly each time."
W19L3 "The idea is to be repeated first, and then the mind should be carefully searched for the thoughts it contains at that time."
W19L5 "Apart from the "as needed" application of today's idea, at least three practice periods are required, shortening the length of time involved, if necessary."
W20L1 "There has been virtually no attempt to direct the time for undertaking them, minimal effort has been required, and not even active cooperation and interest have been asked."
W21L1 "This time, however, specific mind-searching periods are necessary in addition to applying the idea to particular situations as they arise."
W22L3 "Look at the world about you at least five times today, for at least a minute each time."
W23L7 "You do not yet recognize this, and you are asked at this time only to treat them as the same in today's practice periods."
W26L5 "A full two minutes should be attempted for each of them, although the time may be reduced to a minute if the discomfort is too great."
W26L6 "You will not be able to use very many for one practice period, because a longer time than usual should be spent with each one."
W27L1 "The purpose of today's exercises is to bring the time when the idea will be wholly true a little nearer."
W27L3 "It is recommended that you set a definite time interval for using the idea when you wake or shortly afterwards, and attempt to adhere to it throughout the day."
W27L3 "It will not be difficult to do this, even if you are engaged in conversation or otherwise occupied at the time."
W31L2 "During that time, look about you slowly while repeating the idea two or three times."
W32L4 "To facilitate this, select a time when few distractions are anticipated, and when you yourself feel reasonably ready."
W34L2 "One in the morning and one in the evening is advised, with an additional one to be undertaken at any time in between which seems most conducive to readiness."
W35L9 "As often as possible during the day, pick up a specific attribute or attributes which you are ascribing to yourself at the time, and apply the idea for today to them, adding the idea to each of them in the form stated above."
W38L5 "From time to time you may want to vary this procedure, and add some relevant thoughts of your own."
W40L3 "Today's exercises take little time and no effort."
W41L7 "From time to time you may repeat today's idea, if you find it helpful."
W41L8 "This exercise can bring very startling results even the first time it is attempted, and sooner or later it is always successful."
W42L2 "This means that you can receive it any time and anywhere, wherever you are and in whatever circumstances you find yourself."
W42L2 "You cannot but be in the right place at the right time."
W42L3 "We will have two three-to-five-minute longer exercise periods today, one as soon as possible after you wake, and another as close as possible to the time you go to sleep."
W42L3 "It is better, however, to wait until you can sit quietly by yourself at a time when you feel ready, than it is to be concerned with the time as such."
W43L4 "The third may be undertaken at the most convenient and suitable time which circumstances and readiness permit."
W43L4 "Then glance around you for a short time, applying today's idea specifically to what you see."
W43L9 "Try today not to allow long periods of time to slip by without remembering today's idea, and thus remembering your function."
W44L4 "A longer time is highly recommended, but only if you find the time merely slipping by with little or no sense of strain."
W44L6 "You might find it helpful to remind yourself from time to time that to reach light is to escape from darkness, whatever you may believe to the contrary."
W44L11 "Throughout the day, repeat the idea often, with eyes open or closed as seems better to you at the time."
W46L7 "They will be needed at any time during the day when you become aware of any kind of negative reaction to anyone, present or not."
W48L2 "You can use it with your eyes open at any time and in any situation."
W50L1 "Here is the answer to every problem that confronts you today and tomorrow and throughout time."
W52L3 "Let me understand that I am trying to use time against God."
W62L3 "Remember that in every attack you call upon your own weakness, while every time you forgive you call upon the strength of Christ in you."
W64L4 "Therefore every time you choose whether or not to fulfill your function, you are really choosing whether to be happy or not."
W65L3 "It gives you the answer to all the searching you have done since time began."
W65L4 "Try, if possible, to undertake the daily extended practice periods at approximately the same time each day."
W65L4 "Try, also, to determine this time today in advance, and then adhere to it as closely as possible."
W65L4 "The purpose of this is to arrange your day so that you have set apart the time for God, as well as for all the trivial purposes and goals you will pursue."
W67L4 "You may find it necessary to repeat the idea for today from time to time, to replace distracting thoughts."
W70L5 "We will follow this practice for a number of lessons, and it would again be well to decide in advance when would be a good time to lay aside for each of them, and adhere to your own decision as closely as possible."
W73L9 "You will succeed today, the time appointed for the release of the Son of God from hell and from all idle wishes."
W75L2 "Today the time of light begins for you and everyone."
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 "Remind yourself every quarter of an hour or so that today is a time for special celebration."
W79L3 "There is no time in which you feel completely free of problems, and at peace."
W79L5 "Others remain unsolved under a cloud of denial, and rise to haunt you from time to time, only to be hidden again but still unsolved."
W79L9 "The shorter practice periods for today will not be set by time, but by need."
W90L5 "I seem to have problems only because I am misusing time."
W90L5 "I believe that the problem comes first, and time must elapse before it can be worked out."
W90L5 "That is because I do not yet realize that God has placed the answer together with the problem, so that they cannot be separated by time."
W90L6 ""Time cannot separate this problem from its solution.""
W91L5 "Three times today, set aside about 10 minutes for a quiet time in which you try to leave your weakness behind."
W92L10 "After the morning meeting, we will use the day in preparation for the time at night when we will meet again in hope and trust."
W95L5 "Frequent but shorter practice periods have other advantages for you at this time."
W95L5 "In addition to recognizing your difficulties with sustained attention, you must also have noticed that, unless you are reminded of your purpose frequently, you tend to forget about it for long periods of time."
W95L6 "Structure, then, is necessary for you at this time, planned to include frequent reminders of your goal, and regular attempts to reach it."
W95L6 "Regularity in terms of time is not the ideal requirement for the most beneficial form of practice in salvation."
W95L16 "Repeat today's idea as frequently as possible, and understand each time you do so, someone hears the voice of hope, the stirring of the truth within his mind, the gentle rustling of the wings of peace."
W96L2 "Until you have accepted this, you will attempt an endless list of goals you cannot reach; a senseless series of expenditures of time and effort, hopefulness and doubt, each one as futile as the one before, and failing as the next one surely will."
W96L6 "Waste no more time on this."
W96L11 "Every time you spend five minutes of the hour seeking Him Who joins your mind and Self, you offer Him another treasure to be kept for you."
W96L12 "Each time today you tell your frantic mind salvation comes from your One Self, you lay another treasure in your growing store."
W97L3 "Each time you practice, awareness is brought a little nearer at least; sometimes a thousand years or more are saved."
W97L3 "The minutes which you give are multiplied over and over, for the miracle makes use of time, but is not ruled by it."
W97L4 "You are the Spirit in Whose Mind abides the miracle in which all time stands still; the miracle in which a minute spent in using these ideas becomes a time which has no length and which has no end."
W97L6 "And they will increase in healing power each time someone accepts them as his thoughts, and uses them to heal."
W97L9 "Listen for His assurance every time you speak the word He offers you today, and let Him tell your mind that they are true."
W98L3 "They do not doubt their own ability, because they know their function will be filled completely, in the perfect time and place."
W98L5 "Is it not worth five minutes of your time each hour to be able to accept the happiness which God has given you?"
W98L6 "You can exchange a little of your time for peace of mind and certainty of purpose, with the promise of complete success."
W98L6 "And since time has no meaning, you are being asked for nothing in return for everything."
W98L9 "He will be with you each practice period you share with Him, exchanging every instant of the time you offer Him for timelessness and peace."
W98L10 "Throughout the hour let your time be spent in happy preparation for the next five minutes you will spend again with Him."
W98L10 "Repeat today's idea while you wait for the glad time to come to you again."
W98L10 "Repeat it often, and do not forget each time you do so, you have let your mind be readied for the happy time to come."
W98L11 "And when the hour is gone, and He is there once more to spend a little time with you be thankful, and lay down all earthly tasks, all little thoughts and limited ideas, and spend a happy time again with Him."
W99L5 "It is apart from time in that its Source is timeless."
W99L5 "Yet it operates in time because of your belief that time is real."
W100L9 "And it is Him you answer every time you tell yourself you are essential to God's plan for the salvation of the world."
W104L2 "These are the gifts which we inherited before time was, and which will still be ours when time has passed into eternity."
W105L9 "Spend your five minutes thus with Him each time you can today, but do not think that less is worthless when you cannot give Him more."
W107L2 "Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity."
W107L11 "Each time you tell yourself with confidence, "Truth will correct all errors in my mind," you speak for all the world, and Him Who would release the world as He would set you free."
W108L10 "Effect and cause will be far better understood from this time on, and we will make much faster progress now."
W108L10 "Think of the exercises for today as quick advances in your learning, made still faster and more sure each time you say: "To give and to receive are one in truth.""
W109L5 "In timelessness you rest, while time goes by without its touch upon you, for your rest can never change in any way at all."
W109L5 "Take time today to slip away from dreams and into peace."
W109L6 "The world is born again each time you rest, and hourly remember that you came to bring the peace of God into the world, that it might take its rest along with you."
W109L7 "And the time when rest will be the only thing there is comes closer to all worn and tired minds, too weary now to go their way alone."
W109L9 "Time is not the guardian of what we give today."
W109L9 "And we remind them of their resting place each time we tell ourselves: "I rest in God.""
W110L1 "We will repeat today's idea from time to time."
W110L2 "Today's idea is therefore all you need to let complete correction heal your mind and give you perfect vision, which will heal all the mistakes that any mind has made at any time or place."
W110L2 "It is enough to let time be the means for all the world to learn escape from time, and every change which time appears to bring in passing by."
W110R32 "Learning will not be hampered when you miss a practice period because it is impossible at the appointed time."
W110R32 "But learning will be hampered when you skip a practice period because you are unwilling to devote the time to it which you are asked to give."
W110R310 "Repeat it, and allow your mind to rest a little time in silence and in peace."
W122L12 "Now we walk directly into light, and we receive the gifts which have been held in store for us since time began, kept waiting for today."
W124L6 "Their thoughts are timeless, and apart from distance as apart from time."
W124L10 "You will remember then the Thought to which you gave this half an hour, thankfully aware no time was ever better spent."
W125L1 "No peace is possible until His Word is heard around the world; until your mind, in quiet listening, accepts the message which the world must hear to usher in the quiet time of peace."
W125L4 "His Voice would give to you His holy Word to spread across the world the tidings of salvation and the holy time of peace."
W127L6 "If you achieve the faintest glimmering of what love means today, you have advanced in distance without measure and in time beyond the count of years to your release."

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?"
W131L6 "Time is the great illusion it is past or in the future."

W131L15 "Today is set by Heaven Itself to be a time of grace for you and for the world."
W132L2 "The present now remains the only time."
W132L9 "There is no place where you can suffer, and no time that can bring change to your eternal state."
W132L9 "How can a world of time and place exist if you remain as God created you?"
W133L4 "It would be most ungenerous to you to let alternatives be limitless, and thus delay your final choice until you had considered all of them in time, and not been brought so clearly to the place where there is but one choice which must be made."
W133L6 "Time can never take away a value that is real."
W134L14 "Today we practice true forgiveness that the time of joining be no more delayed."
W134L16 "Briefly consider all the evil things you thought of him, and each time ask yourself "Would I condemn myself for doing this?""
W134L17 "The time remaining should be given to experiencing the escape from all the heavy chains you sought to lay upon your brother, which were laid upon yourself."
W135L6 "Defend its life, or give it gifts to make it beautiful or walls to make it safe, and you but say your home is open to the thief of time, corruptible and crumbling, so unsafe it must be guarded with your very life."
W135L16 "Time becomes a future emphasis, to be controlled by learning and experience obtained from past events and previous beliefs."
W135L20 "Your present trust in Him is the defense which promises a future undisturbed, without a trace of sorrow, and with joy which constantly increases as this life becomes a holy instant, set in time, but heeding only immortality."
W135L21 "And it will lead you on in ways appointed for your happiness according to the ancient plan, begun when time was born."
W135L22 "We will anticipate that time today with present confidence, for this is part of what was planned for us."
W135L26 "For this is Easter time in your salvation."
W135L27 "And all the world will take this giant stride, and celebrate your Easter time with you."
W135L27 "Throughout the day, as foolish little things appear to raise defensiveness in you and tempt you to engage in weaving plans, remind yourself this is a special day for learning, and acknowledge it with this: "This is Easter time."
W136L13 "It is this fact which demonstrates that time is an illusion."
W136L13 "The Thoughts of God are quite apart from time."
W136L13 "For time is but another meaningless defense you made against the truth."
W136L18 "The body's health is fully guaranteed because it is not limited by time, by weather or fatigue, by food and drink, or any laws you made it serve before."
W137L11 "Nor does time elapse between the instant they are healed and all the grace of healing it is given them to give."
W137L13 "Is not a little time a small expense to offer for the gift of everything?"
W138L3 "Decision lets one of the conflicting goals become the aim of effort and expenditure of time."
W138L3 "Without decision time is but a waste and effort dissipated."
W138L3 "And time goes by without results."
W138L7 "So we begin today considering the choice that time was made to help us make."
W138L9 "All that is veiled in shadows must be raised to understanding to be judged again, this time with Heaven's help, and all mistakes in judgment which the mind had made before are open to correction as the truth dismisses them as causeless."
W138L12 "As every hour passed, we have declared our choice again in a brief quiet time devoted to maintaining sanity."
W139L7 "And they will come again until the time Atonement is accepted, and they learn it is impossible to doubt yourself and not to be aware of what you are."
W140L11 "We have no need to make them different, and thus delay the time when we can hear our Father speak to us."
W140R41 "Now a review again, this time aware we are preparing for the second part of learning how the truth can be applied."
W140R45 "Begin each day with time devoted to the preparation of your mind to learn what each idea you will review that day can offer you in freedom and in peace."
W140R46 "There is no hurry now, for you are using time for its intended purpose."
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."
W140R49 "Each day of practicing, as we review, we close as we began, repeating first the Thought that made the day a special time of blessing and of happiness for us; and through our faithfulness restored the world from darkness to the light, from grief to joy, from pain to peace, from sin to holiness."
W151L14 "We practice wordlessly today, except at the beginning of the time you spend with God."
W153L13 "Now a quiet time has come in which we put away the toys of guilt, and lock our quaint and childish thoughts of sin forever from the pure and holy minds of Heaven's children and the Son of God."
W153L15 "And as distraction ceases to arise to turn us from our purpose, we will find that half an hour is too short a time to spend with God."
W153L18 "In time, with practice, you will never cease to think of Him, and hear His loving Voice guiding your footsteps into quiet ways, where you will walk in true defenselessness, for you will know that Heaven goes with you."
W153L18 "Nor would you keep your mind away from Him a moment, even though your time is spent in offering salvation to the world."
W153L19 "We call upon His strength each time we feel the threat of our defenses undermine our certainty of purpose."
W155L11 "When dreams are over, time has closed the door on all the things that pass and miracles are purposeless, the holy Son of God will make no journeys."
W157L1 "It is a special time of promise in your calendar of days."
W157L1 "It is a time Heaven has set apart to shine upon, and cast a timeless light upon this day when echoes of eternity are heard."
W157L3 "Today it will be given you to feel a touch of Heaven, though you will return to paths of learning, yet you have come far enough along the way to alter time sufficiently to rise above its laws, and walk into eternity a while."
W157L7 "The time will come when you will not return in the same form in which you now appear, for you will have no need of it."
W158L2 "The revelation that the Father and the Son are One will come in time to every mind."
W158L2 "Yet is that time determined by the mind itself, not taught."
W158L3 "The time is set already."
W158L3 "For time but seems to go in one direction."
W158L4 "Time is a trick; a sleight of hand, a vast illusion in which figures come and go as if by magic."
W158L5 "It revealed itself to him at its appointed time."
W158L11 "It matters not when revelation comes, for that is not of time."
W158L11 "Yet time has still one gift to give in which true knowledge is reflected in a way so accurate its image shares its unseen holiness; its likeness shines with its immortal Love."
W162L1 "From time to time we will repeat it, as we reach another stage in learning."
W162L3 "He will save the world because he gives the world what he receives each time he practices the words of truth."
W163L3 "For it will come with certain footsteps when the time has come for its arrival."
W164L1 "What time but now can truth be recognized?"
W164L1 "The present is the only time there is."
W164L1 "He looks past time and sees eternity as represented there."
W164L3 "How quiet is the time you give to spend with Him beyond the world."
W166L11 "He points to all the gifts you have each time the thought of poverty oppresses you, and speaks of His Companionship when you perceive yourself as lonely and afraid."
W167L4 "It is the fixed belief ideas can leave their source, and take on qualities the source does not contain, becoming different from their own origin, apart from it in kind as well as distance, time, and form."
W169L4 "But we have also said the mind determines when that time will be, and has determined it."

T12D5 "For the ego cannot tolerate RELEASE from the past, and though it is no more, the ego tries to preserve its IMAGE by responding as if it were present."
T12D5 "Thus, it dictates reactions to those you meet NOW from a PAST reference point, obscuring their PRESENT reality."
T12D5 "And you will receive messages from them out of your OWN past because, by making it real in the present, you are forbidding yourself to LET IT GO."
T12D6 "The shadowy figures from the past are precisely what you must ESCAPE."
T12D6 "They carry the spots of pain in your minds, directing you to attack in the present, in retaliation for a past that is no more."
T12D6 "For unless you learn that PAST pain is delusional, you are choosing a future of delusions, and losing the endless opportunities which you COULD find for release in the present."
T12D6 "For the ego would PRESERVE your nightmares, and PREVENT you from awaking, and understanding that THEY are past."
T12D7 "Would you RECOGNIZE a holy encounter, if you are merely perceiving it as a meeting with your OWN past?"
T12D7 "The ego teaches that you always encounter your PAST, and because your dreams WERE not holy, the future CANNOT be, and the present is without meaning."
T12D8 "And it is in the REALITY of now, without past OR future, that the beginning of the appreciation of eternity lies."
T12D10 "For healing CANNOT be accomplished in the past, and MUST be accomplished in the present to RELEASE the future."
T12D10 "THIS interpretation ties the future to the present, and EXTENDS THE PRESENT, rather than the past."
T12D10 "But if you interpret your function as DESTRUCTION, you will lose sight of the present, and hold on to the past TO ENSURE A DESTRUCTIVE FUTURE."
T12E2 "Each one peoples his world with figures from his INDIVIDUAL past, and it is because of this that private worlds DO differ."
T12F1 "His past has NO reality in the present, and you CANNOT see it."
T12F1 "Your past reactions TO him are also NOT THERE, and if it is to these that you react NOW, you see but an image of him that you made and cherish INSTEAD of him."
T12F1 "If you remember the PAST as you look upon him, you will be unable to perceive the reality that is NOW."
T12F2 "You consider it "natural" to use your PAST experience as the reference point from which to JUDGE the present."
T12F2 "When you have learned to look upon everyone with NO REFERENCE AT ALL to the past, either his OR yours as you perceived it, you will be able to learn FROM WHAT YOU SEE NOW."
T12F2 "For the past can cast no shadow to darken the present, UNLESS YOU ARE AFRAID OF LIGHT."
T12F3 "The Christ revealed to you NOW has no past, for He is changeless."
T12F3 "To be born again is to let the PAST go, and LOOK WITHOUT CONDEMNATION UPON THE PRESENT."
T12F3 "For the cloud which obscures God's Son to you IS the past, and if you would have it past AND GONE, you must NOT SEE IT NOW."
T12F4 "Past, present, and future are not continuous, UNLESS YOU FORCE CONTINUITY ON THEM."
T12F4 "You would anticipate the future on the basis of your PAST experience and plan for it accordingly."
T12F4 "And by so doing, you are ALIGNING past and future, and not allowing the miracles, which could intervene BETWEEN them, to free you to be born again."
T12F5 "The miracle enables you to see your brother WITHOUT his past, and so perceive him as born again."
T12F5 "His errors ARE all past, and by perceiving him WITHOUT them, you are RELEASING him."
T12F5 "And since his past is yours, you SHARE in this release."
T12F5 "Let no dark cloud out of YOUR past obscure him from you, for truth lies ONLY in the present, and you WILL find it if you seek it there."
T12F5 "Your past was made in anger, and if you use it to ATTACK the present you will NOT SEE the freedom that the present holds."
T12F6 "THEIR continuity is timeless, and their communication is unbroken, for they are NOT SEPARATED by the past."
T12F6 "Only the past CAN separate, and IT is nowhere."
T12F7 "The present offers you your brothers in the light that would unite you WITH them, and free YOU from the past."
T12F7 "Would you, then, hold the past AGAINST them?"
T12F13 "Continuous WITH his Father, he has no past APART from Him."
T12G4 "He lives within you in the quiet present, and waits for you to leave the past behind, and enter into the world He holds out to you in love."
T12G7 "The peace of God passeth your understanding ONLY in the past."
T13A1 "All therapy is release from the past."
T13A1 "HE TEACHES THAT THE PAST DOES NOT EXIST, a fact which belongs to the sphere of knowledge, and which therefore NO-ONE IN THE WORLD KNOWS."
T13C1 "The guilty ALWAYS condemn, and HAVING done so, they WILL condemn, linking the future to the past, as is the ego's law."
T13C1 "Between the future and the past, the laws of God must intervene, if you would free yourselves."
T13C3 "You WILL accept your treasure, and if you place your faith in the past, the future WILL be like it."
T13C4 "You do NOT believe the Son of God is guiltless, because you see the past, and see HIM not."
T13C4 "You could as easily have FREED him from the past, and lifted from his mind the cloud of guilt that binds him TO it."
T13D4 "When you maintain that YOU are guilty, but the source LIES IN THE PAST, you are NOT looking inward."
T13D4 "The past is NOT in you."
T13D4 "Can you EXPECT to use your brothers as a means to solve the past, and still to see them as they really ARE?"
T13D4 "You wanted not salvation in the past."
T13D5 "Use no relationship to hold you to the past, but with each one, each day, be born again."
T13D5 "A minute, even less, will be enough to free you from the past, and give your mind in peace over to the Atonement."
T13D8 "Look THROUGH the cloud of guilt that dims your vision, and look PAST darkness, to the holy place where you will see the light."
T13D16 "The war, the guilt, the past, are gone as one, into the unreality from whence they came."
T13G8 "All this lies in the Holy Spirit's plan to free you from the past, and open up the way to freedom FOR you."
T14E1 "Thus, truth was made past, and the present was dedicated to illusion."
T14E1 "And the past, too, was changed, and INTERPOSED between what ALWAYS was, and NOW."
T14E1 "The past that YOU remember NEVER was, and represents only denial of what ALWAYS was."
T14G3 "Atonement teaches you how to escape forever from everything that you have taught yourselves in the past, by showing you ONLY what you ARE NOW."
T14G3 "Learning is therefore IN THE PAST, but its influence DETERMINES the present, by giving it whatever meaning it holds for you."
T14G3 "Nothing you have ever learned can help you understand the present, or teach you how to undo the past."
T14G3 "Your past IS what you have taught yourselves."
T14G7 "And I will not use my own past learning as the light to guide me now.""
T14G10 "For the past binds HIM not, and therefore binds not you."
T14G11 "He Who has freed you from the past, would teach you, you ARE free of it."
T15B5 "For underneath its fanatical insistence that the past and future be the same, is hidden a far more insidious threat to peace."
T15B7 "Fear is NOT of the present, but ONLY of the past and future, which do not exist."
T15B7 "There is no fear in the present, when each instant stands clear and separated from the past, without its shadow reaching out into the future."
T15B7 "Each instant is a clean, untarnished birth, in which the Son of God emerges FROM the past, into the present."
T15B8 "Nothing can reach you here, out of the past, and it is here that you are COMPLETELY absolved, COMPLETELY free, and WHOLLY without condemnation."
T15C2 "In the blessed instant, you will let go ALL your past learning, and the Holy Spirit will quickly offer you the WHOLE lesson of peace."
T15E1 "For beyond the past and future, in which you will NOT find it, it stands in shimmering readiness for your acceptance."
T15F1 "Judgment ALWAYS rests on the past, for PAST experience is the basis on which you judge."
T15F1 "Judgment becomes impossible without the past, for WITHOUT it you do NOT understand anything."
T15F2 "The past is the EGO's chief learning device, for it is in the past that you learned to define your OWN needs, and acquired methods for meeting them ON YOUR OWN TERMS."
T15F3 "The past HAS taught you this."
T15F8 "Without the values from the past you WOULD see them all the same, and LIKE YOURSELF."
T15F9 "The holy instant PARALLELS His knowing, by bringing ALL perception OUT of the past, thus removing the frame of reference you have built, by which to JUDGE your brothers."
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."
T15G8 "There is NO exclusion in the holy instant, because the past is gone, and, with it, goes the whole basis FOR exclusion."
T16A3 "All you have learned of empathy IS FROM THE PAST."
T16A3 "And there is NOTHING from the past that you would share, for there is nothing there that YOU WOULD KEEP."
T16A4 "Do NOT use empathy to MAKE THE PAST REAL, and so perpetuate it."
T16A4 "Focus your mind only on this: "I am not alone, and I would not intrude the past upon my Guest."
T16H1 "It is impossible to let the past go, WITHOUT relinquishing the special relationship."
T16H1 "For the special relationship is an attempt to RE-ENACT the past, AND CHANGE IT."
T16H1 "Imagined slights, remembered pain, past disappointments, perceived injustices and deprivations, all enter into the special relationship, which becomes a way in which you seek to restore your wounded SELF-esteem."
T16H1 "What basis would you have for choosing a special partner, WITHOUT the past?"
T16H1 "EVERY such choice is made because of something "evil" in the past, TO WHICH YOU CLING, and for which must SOMEONE ELSE "atone.""
T16H2 "The special relationship TAKES VENGEANCE ON THE PAST."
T16H2 "By seeking to remove suffering IN THE PAST, it OVERLOOKS the present, in its preoccupation with the past, and its TOTAL COMMITMENT to it."
T16H2 "Shades of the past envelop it, and make it what it is."
T16H2 "How can you change the past, EXCEPT in fantasy?"
T16H2 "And who can give you what you think THE PAST deprived you of?"
T16H2 "The past is nothing."
T16H2 "Do not seek to lay the blame for deprivation on it, for the past IS GONE."
T16H3 "And it must also be that this purpose COULD NOT BE FULFILLED IN THE PRESENT, but ONLY in the past."
T16H3 "Do not underestimate the intensity of the ego's drive for vengeance on the past."
T16H4 "For the ego holds the past AGAINST YOU, and, in your ESCAPE from it, it sees ITSELF deprived of the vengeance it believes that you so justly merit."
T16H4 "Yet, without your ALLIANCE in your own destruction, the ego could not hold you to the past."
T16H4 "The past is gone; seek not to preserve it in the special relationship, which binds you to it, and would teach you that SALVATION is past, and that you must RETURN to the past, to FIND salvation."
T16H4 "There is NO fantasy that does not contain the dream of retribution for the past."
T16H6 "The holy instant is the OPPOSITE of the ego's fixed belief in salvation through vengeance for the past."
T16H6 "In the holy instant, it is ACCEPTED that the past is gone, and WITH its passing, the drive for vengeance HAS BEEN uprooted, and has disappeared."
T16H9 "Their reality HAS no past, and ONLY illusions can BE forgiven."
T17C6 "For forgiveness literally TRANSFORMS vision, and lets you see the real world, reaching quietly and gently across chaos, and removing all illusions that had twisted your perception, and fixed it on the past."
T17D1 "To forgive is merely to remember ONLY the LOVING thoughts you gave in the past, and those that were given you."
T17D3 "And why whatever reminds you of your PAST grievances, no matter how distorted the associations by which you ARRIVE at the remembrance may be, ATTRACTS you, and seems to you to go by the name of love."
T17D7 "If all but loving thoughts have been forgotten, what remains IS eternal, and the TRANSFORMED past is made LIKE THE PRESENT."
T17D7 "No longer does the past CONFLICT with now."
T17D8 "That is why Atonement centers ON THE PAST, which is the SOURCE of separation, and where it must be undone."
T17D10 "Give the past to Him Who can change YOUR mind about it, FOR you."
T17D10 "But first, be SURE you fully realize what YOU have made the past to REPRESENT, and why."
T17D11 "In brief, the past is NOW your justification for entering into a continuing, unholy alliance with the ego AGAINST THE PRESENT."
T17D11 "Yet the frame of reference to which the present is REFERRED for meaning, is an ILLUSION of the past, in which those elements which FIT the purpose of the unholy alliance are retained and ALL THE REST LET GO."
T17D11 "And what is thus let go, is all the truth the past could ever OFFER to the present, as witnesses for ITS reality, while what is KEPT, but witnesses to the reality of dreams."
T17G3 "Not only is your judgment IN THE PAST, but you have no idea what SHOULD have happened."
T17H6 "Yet, for all its might, so great it reaches past the stars and to the universe that lies beyond them, your little faithlessness can make IT useless, if you would use the faithlessness instead."
T17H6 "It is not HIS past but YOURS, you hold against him."
T17H8 "And EVERY situation was thus MADE FREE of the past, which WOULD have made it purposeLESS."
T18D8 "You have gone PAST fear, for no two minds can JOIN in the desire for love without love's joining THEM."
T18D9 "And from this light will the Great Rays extend back into darkness and forward unto God, to shine away the past and so make room for His Eternal Presence, in which everything is radiant in the light."
T18E9 "And that is WHY the past has gone."
T18H3 "Only its past and future make it seem real."
T18H3 "Its whole attraction is imaginary, and therefore MUST be thought of from the past, or in the future."
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."
T18J9 "Let your Guide TEACH you their UNsubstantial nature, as He leads you PAST them."
T19B8 "By faith, you OFFER the gift of freedom from the past, which you have RECEIVED."
T19B8 "You freely choose to OVERLOOK his errors, looking PAST all barriers between your self and his, and seeing them AS ONE."
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."
T19C8 "This is his past, his present, and his future."
T19D14 "But peace will gently cover them, extending past, COMPLETELY unhindered."
T19F1 "As love must look past fear, so must fear see love not."
T19G6 "Can it be difficult for us to walk past barriers together, when you have JOINED the Limitless?"
T19I2 "They but walk past, and it is gone."
T20C6 "You have the vision to look past ALL illusions."
T20C10 "This is the way to Heaven and to the peace of Easter, in which we join in glad awareness that the Son of God is risen from the past, and has awakened to the present."
T20C11 "And by the hands that GAVE it to each other, shall both of you be led past fear to Love."
T20F6 "The past takes nothing FROM it, and the future will ADD no more."
T20G13 "Idolatry is past and meaningless."
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."
T21D12 "But, in their seeing, they look PAST it, as do you."
T21E3 "Your faith is moving inward, PAST insanity, and on to reason."
T21F9 "And you HAVE gone past this."
T22D5 "And they were made to look on error, and NOT see past it."
T22F5 "Can the illusion of immovability be long defended for what is quietly PAST THROUGH, and GONE BEYOND?"
T22G7 "What form of suffering could BLOCK your sight, preventing you from seeing PAST it?"
T23E8 "It is their past, their present, and their future."
T24G9 "Futility of function not fulfilled will haunt you while your brother lies asleep, 'til what has been assigned to you is done, and he is risen from the past."
T24H6 "Not 'til you go PAST learning to the Given; not 'til you make again a holy home for YOUR creations is it understood."
T25B4 "Its radiance shines through each body that It looks upon, and brushes ALL its darkness into light merely by looking PAST it TO the Light."
T25C1 "The ONLY value that the past can hold is that you learn it gave you NO rewards that you would WANT to keep, for only thus will you be WILLING to relinquish it, and have it gone forever."
T25C4 "Its past HAS failed."
T26D3 "They are brought together, and only ONE continues past the gate where Oneness is."
T26E1 "And what is charity WITHIN the world gives way to simple justice past the gate that opens into Heaven."
T26F4 "You think you live in what is past."
T26F5 "Only in the past, - an ancient past, too short to make a world in answer to creation, - did this world APPEAR to rise."
T26F6 "It is the key to learning that the past is over."
T26F7 "Is any echo from the past that he may hear a fact in what is there to hear where he is now?"
T26F7 "The unforgiven is a voice that calls from out a past forever more gone by."
T26F7 "Is this a HINDRANCE to the truth the past has gone, and CANNOT be returned to you?"
T26F8 "Can it be up to you to see the past, and put it in the present?"
T26F8 "And everything that points the way in the direction of the past but sets you on a mission whose accomplishment can ONLY be unreal."
T26F9 "A dreadful instant in a distant past, now perfectly corrected, is of no concern or value."
T26F9 "No past illusions have the power to keep you in a place of death, a vault God's Son entered an instant, to be instantly restored unto His Father's Perfect Love."
T26F9 "And will you not forgive him now, because he made an error in the past that God remembers not, and is not there?"
T26F10 "Now are you shifting back and forth, between the past and present."
T26F10 "Sometimes the past seems real, as if it WERE the present."
T26F10 "Voices FROM the past are heard, and then are doubted."
T26F10 "This is the borderland between the worlds, the bridge between the past and present."
T26F10 "Here the shadow of the past remains, but still a present Light is dimly recognized."
T26F10 "It MUST draw you from the past into the present, where you really ARE."
T26F10 "They come from what is past and gone, but hinder not the true existence of the here and now."
T26F11 "And so you die each day to live again, until you cross the gap between the past and present, which is NOT a gap at all."
T26F12 "Forgive the past and let it go, for it IS gone."
T26H5 "Yet the belief that it is real has made some errors seem forever PAST the hope of healing, and the lasting grounds for hell."
T27B10 "The simple way to let this be achieved is merely this; to let the body have no purpose from the past, when you were sure you KNEW its purpose was to foster guilt."
T27G5 "The miracle forgives BECAUSE it stands for what is PAST forgiveness, and is TRUE."
T28A1 "The miracle but shows the past is gone, and what has truly gone HAS no effects."
T28A2 "Remembering is as selective as perception, being its past tense."
T28A2 "It is perception of the past, as if it were occurring NOW, and still were there to see."
T28B1 "But this is NOT a memory of past events, but ONLY of a PRESENT state."
T28B2 "You are so long accustomed to believe that memory holds only what is past, that it is hard for you to realize it is a skill that CAN remember NOW."
T28B2 "There IS no link of memory to the past."
T28B2 "He does NOT seek to use it as a means to KEEP the past, but rather as a way TO LET IT GO."
T28B3 "Committed to its vaults, the history of all the body's past is hidden there."
T28B3 "All of the strange associations made to keep the past alive, the present dead, are stored within it, waiting your command that they be brought to you, and lived again."
T28B4 "And yet you make strange use of it, as if the past had CAUSED the present, which is but a CONSEQUENCE, in which no change can be made possible, because its cause has GONE."
T28B4 "No change can be made in the present, if its cause is PAST."
T28B4 "ONLY the past is held in memory, as you make use of it, and so it is a way to hold the past AGAINST the now."
T28B6 "It is NOT past, because He let it not be unremembered."
T28B7 "Its memory does NOT lie in the past, nor waits the future."
T28B11 "There IS no past to keep its fearful image in the way of glad awakening to present peace."
T28B11 "The stillness speaks in gentle sounds of love the Son of God remembers from BEFORE his own remembering came IN BETWEEN the present and the past, to shut them out."
T28B12 "There never WAS a cause besides It, that could generate a DIFFERENT past or future."
T28B12 "ITS effects are changelessly eternal, BEYOND fear, and PAST the world of sin entirely."
T29A2 "The rest are past, but this one still remains to block your path, and make the way to light seem dark and fearful, perilous and bleak."
T29H6 "Let us forget the purpose of the world the past has given it."
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."
T30F7 "His gratitude to you is past your understanding, for you have enabled Him to rise from chains, and go with you TOGETHER to His Father's house."
T30G6 "Be not deceived about the MEANING of a fixed belief that SOME appearances are harder to look past than others are."
T31A10 "How wrong are you who fail to hear the call that echoes past each seeming call to death, that sings behind each murderous attack, and pleads that love restore the dying world!"
T31A12 "Now is he born again to you, and you are born again to him, WITHOUT the past that sentenced him to die, and you with him."
T31B2 "Yet must we see them both, before you can look PAST them, to the ONE Alternative that IS a different choice."
T31G6 "Yet it need not be fixed, unless you choose to hold it past the hope of change, and keep it static and concealed within your mind."
T31G13 "It sees no past in anyone at all."
T31H10 "In joyous welcome is my hand outstretched to every brother who would join with me in reaching past temptation, and who looks with fixed determination toward the light that shines beyond in perfect constancy."
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."
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 "Are not your aesthetic reactions to the cup, too, based on past experiences?"
W7L3 "What do you know about this cup except what you learned in the past?"
W7L3 "You would have no idea what this cup is except for your past learning."
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."
W8L2 "The only wholly true thought one can hold about the past is that it is not here."
W8L2 "Very few minds have realized what is actually entailed in picturing the past or in anticipating the future."
W8L4 "Then name each of your thoughts specifically, for example: "I seem to be thinking about (name of person), about (name of object), about (name of emotion), and so on," concluding at the end of the mind-searching period with: "But my mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.""
W10L3 "This aspect of the correction process began with the idea that the thoughts of which you are aware are meaningless, outside rather than within; and then stressed their past rather than their present status."
W21L2 "Then close your eyes and search your mind carefully for situations past, present or anticipated, which arouse anger in you."
W28L3 "You are not defining it in past terms."
W41L6 "Today we will make our first real attempt to get past this dark and heavy cloud, and to go through it to the light beyond."
W41L6 "Try, instead, to get a sense of turning inward, past all the idle thoughts of the world."
W41L7 "You are trying to reach past all these things."
W44L7 "Then try to sink into your mind, letting go every kind of interference and intrusions by quietly sinking past them."

W47L4 "Today we will try to reach past your own weakness to the Source of real strength."
W47L5 "Now try to slip past all concerns related to your own sense of inadequacy."
W49L4 "Go past all the raucous shrieks and sick imaginings that cover your real thoughts and obscure your eternal link with God."
W52L2 "7) "I see only the past.""
W52L2 "I hold the past against everyone and everything, making them my "enemies.""
W52L2 "There will be no past, and therefore no "enemies.""
W52L3 "8) "My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.""
W52L3 "I see only my own thoughts, and my mind is preoccupied with the past."
W52L3 "Let me remember that I look on the past to prevent the present from dawning on my mind."
W52L3 "Let me learn to give the past away, realizing that in so doing I am giving up nothing."
W52L4 "The choice is not whether to see the past or the present: it is merely whether to see or not."
W56L3 "I would let the door behind this world be opened for me, that I may look past it to the world that reflects the Love of God."
W56L4 "And we who are part of Him will yet look past all appearances, and recognize the truth beyond them all."
W66L3 "Today we will try to go past this wholly meaningless battle, and arrive at the truth about your function."
W67L3 "After you have gone over several such related thoughts, try to let all thoughts drop away for a brief preparatory interval, and then try to reach past all your images and preconceptions about yourself to the truth in you."
W67L4 "Yet perhaps you will succeed in going past that, and through the interval of thoughtlessness to the awareness of a blazing light in which you recognize yourself as Love created you."
W69L2 "We are trying to see past the veil of darkness that keeps it concealed."
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."

W106L2 "Walk lightly past their meaningless persuasion."
W106L3 "Go past all things which do not speak of Him Who holds your happiness within His hand, held out to you in welcome and in love."

W109L3 "Completely undismayed this thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God."
W109L5 "In Him you have no cares and no concerns, no burdens, no anxiety, no pain, no fear of future and no past regrets."
W110L2 "It is enough to heal the past and make the future free."
W110L3 "You need no thought but just this one, to let redemption come to light the world and free it from the past."
W110L4 "In this one thought is all the past undone; the present saved to quietly extend into a timeless future."
W127L9 "Let us give thanks today that we are spared a future like the past."
