306: The gift of Christ is all I seek today

Lesson 306 “The gift of Christ is all I seek today.”

What but Christʹs vision would I use today, when it can offer me a day in which I see a world so like to Heaven that an ancient memory returns to me?  Today I can forget the world I made. Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace.  Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God.

And so, our Father, we return to You, remembering we never went away; remembering Your holy gifts to us.  In gratitude and thankfulness we come, with empty hands and open hearts and minds, asking but what You give.  We cannot make an offering sufficient for Your Son.  But in Your Love the gift of Christ is his.”

290: My present happiness is all I see.

Lesson 290 “My present happiness is all I see.”


Unless I look upon what is not there, my present happiness is all I see.  Eyes that begin to open see at last.  And I would have Christʹs vision come to me this very day.  What I perceive without Godʹs own correction for the sight I made is frightening and painful to behold.  Yet I would not allow my mind to be deceived by the belief the dream I made is real an instant longer.  This the day I seek my present happiness, and look on nothing else except the thing I seek.

With this resolve I come to You, and ask Your strength to hold me up today, while I but do Your Will.  You cannot fail to hear me, Father.  What I ask have You already given me, and I am sure that I will see my happiness today.”

289: The past is over. It can touch me not.

Lesson 289 “The past is over.  It can touch me not.”

Unless the past is over in my mind, the real world must escape my sight.  For I am really looking nowhere; seeing but what is not there.  How can I then perceive the world forgiveness offers? This the past was made to hide, for this the world that can be looked on only now.  It has no past.  For what can be forgiven but the past, and if it is forgiven it is gone.

Father, let me not look upon a past that is not there.  For You have offered me Your own replacement, in a present world the past has left untouched and free of sin.  Here is the end of guilt.  And here am I made ready for Your final step.  Shall I demand that You wait longer for Your Son to find the loveliness You planned to be the end of all his dreams and all his pain?”

288: Let me forget my brother’s past today.

“Let me forget my brotherʹs past today.”

This is the thought that leads the way to You, and brings me to my goal.  I cannot come to You without my brother.  And to know my Source, I first must recognize what You created one with me.  My brotherʹs is the hand that leads me on the way to You.  His sins are in the past along with mine, and I am saved because the past is gone. Let me not cherish it within my heart, or I will lose the way to walk to You.  My brother is my Savior.  Let me not attack the Savior You have given me.  But let me honor him who bears Your Name, and so remember that It is my own.”


Forgive me, then, today.  And you will know you have forgiven me if you behold your brother in the light of holiness.  He cannot be less holy than can I, and you can not be holier than he.

287: You are my goal, my Father. Only You.

Lesson 287 “You are my goal, my Father.  Only You.”

Where would I go but Heaven?  What could be a substitute for happiness?  What gift could I prefer before the peace of God?  What treasure would I seek and find and keep that can compare with my Identity?  And would I rather live with fear than love?

You are my goal, my Father.  What but You could I desire to have?  What way but that which leads to You could I desire to walk?  And what except the memory of You could signify to me the end of dreams and futile substitutions for the truth?  You are my only goal.  Your Son would be as You created Him.  What way but this could I expect to recognize my Self, and be at one with my Identity?”

284: I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt

Lesson 284 “I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.”
Loss is not loss when properly perceived.  Pain is impossible.  There is no grief with any cause at all and suffering of any kind is nothing but a dream.  Such is the truth, at first to be but said, and then repeated many times, and next to be accepted as but partly true, with many reservations, then to be considered seriously more and more, and finally accepted as the truth.  I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.  And I would go beyond the words today, go past all reservations, and arrive at full acceptance of the truth in them.

Father, what You have given cannot hurt, and grief and pain must be impossible.  Let me not fail to trust in You today, accepting but the joyous as Your gifts; accepting but the joyous as the truth.

278: If I am bound, my Father is not free.

Lesson 278 “If I am bound, my Father is not free.”
If I accept that I am prisoner within a body, in a world in which all things that seem to live appear to die, then is my Father prisoner with me.  And this do I believe, when I maintain the laws the world obeys must I obey; the frailties and the sins which I perceive are real, and cannot be escaped.  If I am bound in any way, I do not know my Father or my Self.  And I am lost to all reality.  For truth is free, and what is bound is not a part of truth.

Father, I ask for nothing but the truth.  I have had many foolish thoughts about myself and my creation, and have brought a dream of fear into my mind.  Today I would not dream.  I choose the
way to You instead of madness and instead of fear.  For truth is safe and only love is sure.”

109: I rest in God

Lesson 109 “I rest in God.
We ask for rest today, and quietness unshaken by the worldʹs appearances.  We ask for peace and stillness in the midst of all the turmoil born of clashing dreams.  We ask for safety and for happiness, although we seem to look on danger and on sorrow.  And we have the thought that will answer our asking with what we request.
 “I rest in God.”  

This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek.  

I rest in God.”  

This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is.  Here is the end of suffering for all the world, and everyone who ever came and yet will come to linger for a while.  Here is the thought in which the Son of God is born again, to recognize Himself.

I rest in God.”  

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.  There is no suffering it cannot heal.  There is no problem which it cannot solve.  
And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.

This is the day of peace.  You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate, your rest remains completely undisturbed.  Yours is the rest of truth.  Appearances cannot intrude on
you.  You call to all to join you in your rest, and they will hear and come to you because you rest in God.  They will not hear another voice but yours, because you gave your voice to God and now you rest in Him, and let Him speak through you.

In Him you have no cares and no concerns, no burdens, no anxiety, no pain, no fear of future and no past regrets.  In timelessness you rest, while time goes by without its touch upon you, for your rest can never change in any way at all. W You rest today. And as you close your eyes, sink into stillness. Let these periods of rest and respite reassure your mind that all its frantic fantasies were but the dreams of fever that has passed away.  Let it be still and thankfully accept its healing.  No more fearful dreams will come
now that you rest in God.  Take time today to slip away from dreams and into peace.

Each hour that you take your rest today a tired mind is suddenly made glad, a bird with broken wings begins to sing, a stream long dry begins to flow again.  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.

With each five minutes that you rest today the world is nearer waking.  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.  And they will hear the bird begin to sing, and see the stream begin to flow again, with hope reborn and energy restored to walk with lightened steps along the road that suddenly
seems easy as they go.

You rest within the peace of God today, and call upon your brothers from your rest, to draw them to their rest along with you.  You will be faithful to your trust today, forgetting no‐one, bringing everyone into the boundless circle of your peace, the holy sanctuary where you rest.  Open the temple doors and let them come from far across the world and near as well; your distant brothers and your closest friends; bid them all enter here and rest with you.

You rest within the peace of God today, quiet and unafraid.   Each brother comes to take his rest, and offer it to you. We rest together here, for thus our rest is made complete, and what we give today we have received already.  Time is not the
guardian of what we give today.  We give to those unborn and those passed by, to every Thought of God, and to the Mind in Which these Thoughts were born, and where they rest.  And we remind them of their resting place each time we tell ourselves:
I rest in God.”

97: I am Spirit

Lesson 97 “I am Spirit.”

Todayʹs idea identifies you with your One Self. It accepts no split identity, nor tries to weave opposing factors into unity. It simply states the truth. Practice this truth today as often as you can, for it will bring your mind from conflict to the quiet fields of peace. No chill of fear can enter, for your mind has been absolved of madness, letting go illusions of a split identity.

We state again the truth about your Self, the holy Son of God Who rests in you; Whose mind has been restored to sanity. You are the Spirit lovingly endowed with all your Fatherʹs Love and peace and joy. You are the Spirit Which completes Himself, and shares His Function as Creator. He is with you always, as you are with Him.

Today we try to bring reality still closer to your mind. Each time you practice, awareness is brought a little nearer at least; sometimes a thousand years or more are saved. The minutes which you give are multiplied over and over, for the miracle makes use of time, but is not ruled by it. Salvation is a miracle, the first and last; the first that is the last, for it is one.

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. Give, then, these minutes willingly, and count on Him Who promised to lay timelessness beside them. He will offer all His strength to every little effort which you make.

Give Him the minutes which He needs today to help you understand with Him you are the Spirit that abides in Him, and Which calls through His Voice to every living thing; offers His sight to everyone who asks; replaces errors with the simple truth.

The Holy Spirit will be glad to take five minutes of each hour from your hands, and carry them around this aching world where pain and misery appear to rule. He will not overlook one open mind that will accept the healing gifts they bring, and He will lay them everywhere He knows they will be welcome. And they will increase in healing power each time someone accepts them as his thoughts, and uses them to heal.

Thus will your gifts to Him be multiplied a thousand‐fold and tens of thousands more. And when it is returned to you, it will surpass in might the little gift you gave as much as does the radiance of the sun outshine the tiny gleam a firefly makes an uncertain moment, and goes out. The steady brilliance of this light remains, and leads you out of darkness, nor will you be able to forget the way again.

Begin these happy exercises with the words the Holy Spirit speaks to you, and let them echo round the world through Him:

Spirit am I, a holy Son of God, Free of all limits, safe and healed and whole, Free to forgive, and free to save the world.”

Expressed through you, the Holy Spirit will accept this gift which you received of Him, increase its power, and give it back to you.

Offer each practice period today gladly to Him. And He will speak to you, reminding you that you are Spirit, one with Him and God, your brothers and your Self. Listen for His assurance every time you speak the word He offers you today, and let Him tell your mind that they are true. Use them against temptation, and escape its sorry consequences if you yield to the belief that you are something else. The Holy Spirit gives you peace today. Receive His words, and offer them to Him.
