CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON THIRTY-FOURTRANSCRIBER’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 could see peace instead of this.
All I need is to be willing to see, instead of dreaming endless dreams of Me; none of them peaceful.
1 The idea for today begins to describe the conditions that prevail in the other way of seeing. What You are thinking does both make up and color Your vision. Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter. Quite independent of circumstances. It must begin with your own thoughts and then extend outward. It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises. Yes, Your thinking counts.
2 Three longer practice periods are required for today’s exercises. One in the morning and one in the evening are advised, with an additional one to be undertaken at any time in between which seems most conducive to readiness. All applications should be done with your eyes closed. It is your inner world to which the applications of today’s idea should be made. This is a happy opportunity to watch the use to which You put Your mind. Pay close attention.
3 Some five minutes of mind searching are required for each of the longer practice periods. Search your mind for fear thoughts, anxiety provoking situations, “offending” personalities or events, or anything else about which you are harboring unloving thoughts. Note them all casually, repeating the idea for today slowly as you watch them arise in your mind, and let each one go, to be replaced by the next. But, but … You say, is there not any righteous indignation? Sure there is, plenty! It’s just not justified since You’re the one dreaming the whole thing!
4 If you begin to experience difficulty in thinking of specific subjects, continue to repeat the idea to yourself in an unhurried manner, without applying it to anything in particular. Be sure, however, not to make any specific exclusions. It’s okay to be ‘wrong’. Remember! You are only dreaming.
5 The shorter applications are to be frequent and made whenever you feel your peace of mind is threatened in any way. The purpose is to protect yourself from temptation throughout the day. If a specific form of temptation arises in your awareness, the exercise should take this form:
6 I could see peace in this situation instead of
what I now see in it.
7 If the inroads on your peace of mind take the form of more generalized adverse emotions, such as depression, anxiety, or worry, use the idea in its original form. And don’t forget to be willing to see peace. That is crucial! If you find you need more than one application of today’s idea to help you change your mind in any specific context, try to take several minutes and devote them to repeating the idea until you feel some sense of relief. It will help you if you tell yourself specifically:
8 I can replace my feelings of depression, anxiety
or worry [or my thoughts about this situation,
personality, or event] with peace.
For I am leaning on the Holy Spirit to the rescue!! Correcting all My misperceptions that are quite numerous!
Yet once corrected am I whole again. Our Wholeness is now, an ever-present possibility, based on willingness to stay connected!
[Thank you Dear Brother]
