LESSON TWENTY-FIVETRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face. The Guidance is in normal type In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You. When You see the word ‘YOU’ capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.
I do not know what anything is for. This humble admission is truly Your password to Heaven. There is now room within Your mind to receive. And receive You will!
1 Purpose is meaning. Today’s idea explains why nothing you see means anything. You do not know what it is for. Therefore it is meaningless to you. This world is like a so-called ‘fun’ house – although it isn’t fun at all, full of meaningless distortions. Everything is for your own best interests. That is what it is for; that is its purpose; that is what it means. It is in recognizing this that your goals become unified. It is in recognizing this that what you see is given meaning. Rejoice, this is such a grand and a happy experience!
2 You perceive the world and everything in it as meaningful in terms of ego goals. These goals have nothing to do with your own best interests because the ego is not you. This false identification makes you incapable of understanding what anything is for. As a result, you are bound to misuse it. When you believe this, you will try to withdraw the goals you have assigned to the world instead of attempting to reinforce them.
3 Another way of describing the goals you now perceive as valuable is to say that they are all concerned with “personal” interests. Since you have no personal interests, your goals are really concerned with nothing. What do I mean by this but what I have said before: The Son of God exists as everything, and not on His or Her own. Is not a single finger meaningless without the hand? What can it really do without its Wholeness: the rest of the hand? And where is the hand without the body?
Or how about a toe? Will it hold You up on its own? And yet the finger and the toe are really vital to the Whole. Do You see that the ego sense of self is truly useless for it fosters only separation instead of Wholeness?
In cherishing them, therefore, you have no goals at all. And thus you do not know what anything is for. Including Your self, clinging to ego.
4 Before you can make any sense out of the exercises for today, one more thought is necessary. At the most superficial levels, you do recognize purpose. Yet purpose cannot be understood at these levels. For example, you do understand that a telephone is for the purpose of talking to someone who is not physically in your immediate vicinity. What you do not understand is what you want to reach him for. And it is this that makes your contact with him meaningful or not. Kindness extended, for example, is always rich with meaning, for it is Love in holy action. Just let this settle in Your mind. No need to leap into ‘doing good’; it will come to You naturally, without any strain
You don’t need to be re-created for the Son of God You are is still present and available.
5 It is crucial to your learning to be willing to give up the goals you have established for everything. For they have not come from Your Wholeness; therefore, are they pointless. The recognition that they are meaningless, rather than “good” or “bad,” is the only way to accomplish this. The idea for today is a step in this direction.
6 Six practice periods, each of two minutes duration, are required. Each practice period should begin with a slow repetition of the idea for today followed by looking about you and letting your glance rest on whatever happens to catch your eye, near or far, “important” or “unimportant,” “human” or “unhuman.” With your eyes resting on each subject you so select, say, for example:
7 I do not know what this chair is for.
I do not know what this pencil is for.
I do not know what this hand is for.
8 Say this quite slowly, without shifting your eyes until you have completed the statement. Then move on to the next subject, and apply today’s idea as before.
I see that I do not really know anything! I am simply clueless without being grounded as the Holy Spirit. Perhaps that is My priority. I must ask and Listen. This is but the “little willingness” Our Brother asks of Us. I’d like to give it.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
