INSTRUMENT OF TRUTH – context

Just to see the context of the upcoming classes  INSTRUMENT OF TRUTH here is an inspiring reference from the Urtext of A Course in Miracles, lesson 154, ” I am among the ministers of God”

Would you receive the messages of God? For thus do you become His messengers. You are appointed now, and yet you wait to give the messages you have received, and so you do not know that they are yours, and do not recognize them. No‐one can receive and understand he has received until he gives. For in the giving is his own acceptance of what he received. 

You who are now the messengers of God receive His messages, for that is part of your appointed role. He has not failed to offer what you need, nor has it been left unaccepted. Yet another part of your appointed task is yet to be accomplished. 

How interesting it says here: No‐one can receive and understand he has received until he gives. The upcoming class series is in perfect alignment with this. It is an opportunity to discover what you have received in your spiritual transformation, by you giving it away. And discovering: In which way you are giving it away? How truth is flowing through you? How Spirit is inspiring you to what?

91: Miracles are seen in light

Lesson 91 “Miracles are seen in light.”

It is important to remember that miracles and vision necessarily go together. This needs repeating and frequent repeating. It is a central idea in your new thought system and the perception which it produces. The miracle is always there. Its presence is not caused by your vision; its absence is not the result of your failure to see. It is only your awareness of miracles that is affected. You will see it in the light; you will not see it in the dark.

To you, then, light is crucial. While you remain in darkness the miracle remains unseen. Thus you are convinced it is not there. This follows from the premises from which the darkness comes. Denial of light leads to failure to perceive it. Failure to perceive light is to perceive darkness. The light is useless to you then, even though it is there. You cannot use it because its presence is unknown to you. And the seeming reality of the darkness makes the idea of light meaningless.

To be told that what you do not see is there sounds like insanity. It is very difficult to become convinced that it is insanity not to see what is there, and to see what is not there instead. You do not doubt that the bodyʹs eyes can see. You do not doubt the images they show you are reality. Your faith lies in the darkness, not the light. How can this be reversed? For you it is impossible, but you are not alone in this.

Your efforts, however little they may be, have strong support. Did you but realize how great this strength, your doubts would vanish. Today we will devote ourselves to the attempt to let you feel this strength. When you have felt the strength in you, which makes all miracles within your easy reach, you will not doubt. The miracles your sense of weakness hides will leap into awareness as you feel the strength in you.

Three times today, set aside about 10 minutes for a quiet time in which you try to leave your weakness behind. This is accomplished very simply, as you instruct yourself that you are not a body. Faith goes to what you want, and you instruct your mind accordingly. Your will remains your teacher, and your will has all the strength to do whatever it desires. You can escape the body if you choose. You can experience the strength in you.

Begin the longer practice periods with this statement of true cause and effect relationships:

Miracles are seen in light. The bodyʹs eyes do not perceive the light. But I am not a body. What am I?”

The question with which this statement ends is needed for our exercises today. What you think you are is a belief to be undone. But what you really are must be revealed to you. The belief you are a body calls for correction, being a mistake. The truth of what you are calls on the strength in you to bring to your awareness what the mistake concealed.

If you are not a body, what are you? You need to be aware of what the Holy Spirit uses to replace the image of a body in your mind. You need to feel something to put your faith in, as you lift it from the body. You need a real experience of something else, something more solid and more sure; more worthy of your faith, and really there.

If you are not a body, what are you? Ask this in honesty, and then devote several minutes to allowing your mistaken thoughts about your attributes to be corrected, and their opposites to take their place. Say, for example:

I am not weak, but strong.”

I am not helpless, but all powerful.”

I am not limited, but unlimited.”

I am not doubtful, but certain.”

I am not an illusion, but a reality.”

I cannot see in darkness, but in light.”

In the second phase of the exercise period, try to experience these truths about yourself. Concentrate particularly on the experience of strength. Remember that all sense of weakness is associated with the belief you are a body, a belief that is mistaken and deserves no faith. Try to remove your faith from it, if only for a moment. You will become accustomed to keeping faith with the more worthy in you as we go along.

Relax for the rest of the practice period, confident that your efforts, however meager, are fully supported by the strength of God and all His Thoughts. It is from Them your strength will come. It is through Their strong support that you will feel the strength in you. They are united with you in this practice period, in which you share a purpose like Their own. Theirs is the light in which you will see miracles, because Their strength is yours. Their strength becomes your eyes, that you may see.

Five or six times an hour, at reasonably regular intervals, remind yourself that miracles are seen in light. Also, be sure to meet temptation with todayʹs idea. This form would be helpful for this special purpose:

Miracles are seen in light.

Let me not close my eyes because of this.”

Review + lesson 81


Introduction Review 2


We are now ready for another review.  We will begin where our last review left off, and cover two ideas each day.  The earlier part of the day will be devoted to one of these ideas, and the latter part of the day to the other.  We will have one longer exercise period and frequent shorter ones in which we practice each of them.

The longer practice periods will follow this general form: Take about 15 minutes for each of them, and begin by thinking about the idea and the comments which are included in the assignments.  Devote about 3 or 5 minutes to reading them over slowly, several times if you wish, and then close your eyes and listen.  Repeat the first phase if you find your mind wandering, but try to spend the major part of the practice period listening quietly but attentively.

There is a message waiting for you.  Be confident that you will receive it.  Remember that it belongs to you, and that you want it.  Do not allow your intent to waver in the face of distracting thoughts.  Realize that, whatever form they take, they have no meaning and no power.  Replace them with your determination to succeed.

Do not forget that your will has power over fantasies and dreams.  Trust it to see you through, and carry you beyond them all.  Regard these practice periods as dedications to the way, the truth, and the life.  Refuse to be side‐tracked into detours, illusions, and thoughts of death.  You are dedicated to salvation.  Be determined each day not to leave your function unfulfilled. Reaffirm your determination in the shorter practice periods as well, and using the original form of the idea for general application, and a more specific form when needed.  Some specific forms will be included in the comments. These, however, are merely suggestions.  It is not the particular words you use that matter

Lesson 81 Our ideas for review today are: (61‐62)


61. “I am the light of the world.”
How holy am I, who have been given the function of lighting up the world!  Let me be still before my holiness.  In its calm light let all my conflicts disappear.  In its peace let me remember who I am.
Some specific forms for applying the idea when specific difficulties seem to arise might be:
Let me not obscure the light of the world in me.”
“Let the light of the world shine through this appearance.”
“This shadow will vanish before the light.”

62. “Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.”
It is through accepting my function that I will see the light in me.  And in this light will my function stand clear and perfectly unambiguous before my sight.  My acceptance does not depend on my recognizing what my function is, for I do not yet understand forgiveness.  Yet I will trust that in the light I will see it as it is.
Specific forms for using the idea might include:
Let this help me learn what forgiveness means.”
“Let me not separate my function from my will.”
“I would not use this for an alien purpose.”

Introduction and Lesson 81

73: I will there be light

Lesson 73 “I will there be light.

Today we are considering the will that you share with God. This is not the same as the egoʹs idle wishes, out of which darkness and nothingness arise.  The will you share with God has all the power of creation in it.  The egoʹs idle wishes are unshared, and therefore have no power at all.  Its wishes are not idle in the sense that they can make a world of illusions in which your belief can be very strong.  But they are idle indeed in terms of creation.  They make nothing that is real.

Idle wishes and grievances are partners or co‐makers in picturing the world you see.  The wishes of the ego gave rise to it, and the egoʹs need for grievances, which are necessary to maintain it, peoples it with figures which seem to attack you and call for “righteous” judgment.  They become the “middlemen” the ego employs to traffic in grievances, and stand between your awareness and your brotherʹs reality.  Beholding them, you do not know your brothers nor your Self.

Your will is lost to you in this strange bartering, in which guilt is traded back and forth, and grievances increase with each exchange.  Can such a world have been created by the will the Son of God shares with his Father?  Did God create disaster for His Son?  Creation is the will of both together.  Would God create a world that kills Himself?

Today we will try once more to reach the world that is in accordance with your will.  The light is in it because it does not oppose the Will of God.  It is not Heaven, but the light of Heaven shines on it.  Darkness has vanished; the egoʹs idle wishes have been withdrawn.  Yet the light that shines upon this world reflects your will, and so it must be in you that we will look for it.

Your picture of the world can only mirror what is within. The source of neither light nor darkness can be found without. Grievances darken your mind, and you look out on a darkened world.  Forgiveness lifts the darkness, reasserts your will, and lets you look upon a world of light.

We have repeatedly emphasized that the barrier of grievances is easily past, and cannot stand between you and your salvation.  The reason is very simple.  Do you really want to be in hell?  Do you really want to weep and suffer and die?  Forget the egoʹs arguments which seek to prove all this is really Heaven.  You know it is not so.  You can not want this for yourself.  There is a point beyond which illusions cannot go.  Suffering is not happiness, and it is happiness you really want.  Such is your will in truth.  And so salvation is your will as well.  You want to succeed in what we are trying to do today.  We undertake it with your blessing and your glad accord.

We will succeed today if you remember that you will salvation for yourself.  You will to accept Godʹs plan because you share in it.   You have no will that can really oppose it, and you do not want to do so.  Salvation is for you.  Above all else you want the freedom to remember who you really are.  Today it is the ego which stands powerless before your will.  Your will is free, and nothing can prevail against it.   

Therefore we undertake the exercises for today in happy confidence, certain that we will find what it is your will to find, and remember what it is your will to remember.  No idle wishes can detain us, nor deceive us with an illusion of strength.  Today let your will be done.  And end forever the insane belief that it is hell in place of Heaven that you choose.

We will begin our longer practice periods with the recognition that Godʹs plan for salvation, and only His, is wholly in accord with your will.  It is not the purpose of an alien power, thrust upon you unwillingly.  It is the one purpose here on which you and your Father are in perfect accord. You will succeed today, the time appointed for the release of the Son of God from hell and from all idle wishes.  His will is now restored to his awareness.  He is willing this very day to look upon the light in him and be saved.

After reminding yourself of this and determining to keep your will clearly in mind, tell yourself with gentle firmness and quiet certainty:
“I will there be light.
Let me behold the light
that reflects God’s Will and mine.”

Then let your will assert itself, joined with the power of God and united with your Self.  Put the rest of the practice period under Their guidance.  Join with Them as They lead the way.

In the shorter practice periods, again make a declaration of what you really want.  Say:
I will there be light.
Darkness is not my will.”

This should be repeated several times an hour.  It is most important, however, to apply todayʹs idea in this form immediately you are tempted to hold a grievance of any kind.  This will help you let your grievances go, instead of cherishing them and hiding them in the darkness

Lesson 73

69: My grievances hide the light of the world in me

Lesson 69 “My grievances hide the light of the world in me.

No‐one can look upon what your grievances conceal. Because your grievances are hiding the light of the world in you, everyone stands in darkness, and you beside him. But as the veil of your grievances is lifted, you are released with him.  Share your salvation now with him who stood beside you when you were in hell.  He is your brother in the light of the world which saves you both.

Today let us make another real attempt to reach the light in you.  Before we undertake this in our more extended practice period, let us devote several minutes in thinking about what we are trying to do. We are literally attempting to get in touch with the salvation of the world.  We are trying to see past the veil of darkness that keeps it concealed.  We are trying to let the veil be lifted, and see the tears of Godʹs Son disappear in the sunlight.

Let us begin our longer practice period today with the full realization of all this,and real determination to reach what is dearer to us than all else.   Salvation is our only need.  There is no other purpose here, and no other function to fulfill.  Learning salvation is our only goal.  Let us end the ancient search today, by finding the light in us and holding it up for everyone who searches with us to look upon and rejoice.

Very quietly now, with your eyes closed, try to let all the content which generally occupies your consciousness go.  Think of your mind as a vast round area, surrounded by a layer of heavy dark clouds.  You can see only the clouds because you seem to be standing outside the whole area, and quite apart from it.  From where you stand, you can see no reason to believe there is a brilliant light hidden by the clouds.  The clouds seem to be the only reality. They seem to be all there is to see.  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.   We will make this attempt today.

After you have thought about the importance of what you are trying to do for yourself and the world, try to settle in perfect stillness, remembering only how much you want to reach the light in you today, ‐ now.  Determine to go past the clouds.   Reach out and touch them in your mind.  Brush them aside with your hand; feel them resting on your cheeks and forehead and eyelids as you go through them.  Go on; clouds cannot stop you.

If you are doing the exercises properly, you will begin to feel a sense of being lifted up and carried ahead.  Your little effort and small determination call on the power of the universe to help you, and God Himself will raise you from darkness into light.   You are in accord with His Will.  You cannot fail because your will is His.

Have confidence in your Father today, and be certain that He has heard you and has answered you.  You may not recognize His answer yet, but you can indeed be sure that it is given you, and you will yet receive it.  Try, as you attempt to go through the clouds to the light, to hold this confidence in your mind.  Try to remember that you are at last joining your will to Godʹs.  Try to keep the thought clearly in mind that what you undertake with God must succeed.  Then let the power of God work in you and through you, that His Will and yours may be done.

In the shorter practice periods, which you will want to do as often as possible in view of the importance of todayʹs idea to you and your happiness, remind yourself that your grievances are hiding the light of the world from your awareness.  Remind yourself also that you are not searching for it alone, and that you do know where to look for it.   Say, then:
My grievances hide the light of the world in me.
I cannot see what I have hidden.
Yet I want to let it be revealed to me for my salvation and the salvation of the world.”

Also, be sure to tell yourself:
If I hold this grievance, the light of the world will be hidden from me,”
if you are tempted to hold anything against anyone today.

Lesson 69

64: Let me not forget my function

Lesson 64 “Let me not forget my function.”

Todayʹs idea is merely another way of saying, “Let me not wander into temptation.” The purpose of the world you see is to obscure your function of forgiveness, and provide you with a justification for forgetting it.  It is the temptation to abandon God and His Son, taking on a physical appearance.  It is this which the bodyʹs eyes look upon.

Nothing the bodyʹs eyes seem to see can be anything but a form of temptation, since this was the purpose of the body itself. Yet we have learned that the Holy Spirit has another use for all the illusions you have made, and therefore He sees another purpose in them.  To the Holy Spirit, the world is a place where you learn to forgive yourself what you think of as your sins.  In this perception, the physical appearance of temptation becomes the spiritual recognition of salvation.

To review our last few lessons, your function here is to be the light of the world, a function given you by God.  It is only the arrogance of the ego which leads you to question this, and only the fear of the ego which induces you to regard yourself as unworthy of the task assigned to you by God Himself.  The worldʹs salvation awaits your forgiveness because through it does the Son of God escape from all illusions and thus from all temptation.  The Son of God is you.

Only by fulfilling the function given you by God will you be happy.  That is because your function is to be happy by using the means by which happiness becomes inevitable.  There is no other
way.  Therefore every time you choose whether or not to fulfill your function, you are really choosing whether to be happy or not.

Let us remember this today.  Let us remind ourselves of it in the morning and again at night, and all through the day as well. Prepare yourself in advance for all the decisions you will make today by remembering that they are all really very simple. Each one will lead to happiness or unhappiness.  Can such a simple decision really be difficult to make? Let not the form of the decision deceive you.  Complexity of form does not imply complexity of content.  It is impossible that any decision on earth can have a content different from just this one simple choice.  That is the only choice the Holy Spirit sees.  Therefore it is the only choice there is.

Today, then, let us practice these thoughts:
“Let me not forget my function.
Let me not try to substitute mine for Godʹs.
Let me forgive and be happy.”

At least once devote ten or fifteen minutes to reflecting on this with closed eyes.   Related thoughts will come to help you, if you remember the crucial importance of your function to you and to the world.

In the frequent applications of todayʹs idea to be made throughout the day, devote several minutes to reviewing the thoughts, and then to thinking about them and about nothing else.  This will be difficult at first particularly, since you are not proficient in the mind discipline which it requires.  You may need to repeat “Let me not forget my function” quite often, to help you concentrate.

Two forms of the shorter practice periods are required.  At times, do the exercises with your eyes closed, trying to concentrate on the thoughts you are applying.  At other times keep your eyes
open after reviewing the thoughts and look slowly and unselectively about you, telling yourself:
This is the world it is my function to save.”

Lesson 64

63: The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness

Lesson 63 “The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.”

How holy are you who have the power to bring peace to every mind!  How blessed are you who can learn to recognize the means for letting this be done through you!  What purpose could you have that would bring you greater happiness?

You are indeed the light of the world with such a function.  The Son of God looks to you for his redemption.  It is yours to give him, for it belongs to you.  Accept no trivial purpose or meaningless desire in its place, or you will forget your function and leave the Son of God in hell.  This is no idle request that is being asked of you. You are asked to accept salvation that it may be yours to give.

Recognizing the importance of this function, we will be happy to remember it very often today.  We will begin the day by acknowledging it, and close the day with the thought of it in our awareness.  And throughout the day, we will repeat this as often as we can:


The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.

I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.”

You will probably find it easier to let the related thoughts come to you in the minute or two which you should devote to considering this if you can close your eyes.  Do not, however, wait for such an opportunity.  No chance should be lost for reinforcing todayʹs idea.  Remember that Godʹs Son looks to you for his salvation. And who but your Self must be His Son?

Lesson 63
