Guidance from Elder Brother

CIMS DAILY LESSON
TRANSCRIBER’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.
1 Today’s review covers these ideas:
 I am upset because I see what is not there.
And I do believe in everything I see, not understanding that things are not seen externally but internally. i.e. It’s all going on in My mind.
2 Reality is never frightening. It is impossible that it could upset me. Reality brings only perfect peace. When I am upset, it is always because I have replaced reality with illusions which I made up. The illusions are upsetting because I have given them reality and thus regard reality as an illusion. Nothing in God’s creation is affected in any way by this confusion of mine. I am always upset by nothing.
The problem is it seems so very real to You that it’s hard to disbelieve it. Yet ‘hard’ is not impossible if You are willing to be self-disciplined, turning to God, or Me or the Holy Spirit when temptation comes to You. Come it does, for You are so accustomed to bowing down to the ego.
Yet God alone deserves Your reverence.
 I see only the past.
This trait is the nature of the ego mindset: to dwell within the past with endless repetitions. And yet You looked as blindly at what You call the ‘past’ as You do in what You call the ‘present’. And You are never present in the present, for the unreal ‘past’ does rule all Your vision.
3 As I look about, I condemn the world I look upon. I call this seeing. I hold the past against everyone and everything, making them my “enemies.”
– Quite a conundrum, until You turn and ask for help from Me, from the Father, or the Holy Spirit. –
When I have forgiven myself and remembered who I am, I will bless everyone and everything I see. There will be no past and therefore no “enemies.” And I will look with God on all that I failed to see before.
This Holy view can bring Me only joy, gratitude, and deep appreciation for the Father’s Love.
 My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.
No wonder I see nothing as it is. I’m too busy with contemplation of how I thought it was! Thinking is the key! I must clear My thought.
4 I see only my own thoughts, and my mind is preoccupied with the past. What, then, can I see as it is? Let me remember that I look on the past to prevent the present from dawning on my mind. Let me understand that I am trying to use time against God. Let me learn to give the past away, realizing that in so doing I am giving up nothing.
When You are willing to stay in the present – let Us stop now and do this with the painful migraine.
You went back to sleep earlier and woke with joy without it, then left the present by remembering that You had had jt, and the pain returned.
Yes, this is identical to Babci’s experience of waking with a surety that She could walk again, being afraid to try it, and thus remaining still unable to.1
If You will stay focused on here and now with Me, it will dissipate again. Let go Your fear of how persistent migraine can be and of ice skating today being ruined by the pain. They are imposed illegitimately. These thoughts are of the ego, surely not the Holy Spirit!
Why trust the ego? The ego has no Love for You, and the Holy Spirit absolutely Loves You.
Put Your trust with Love.
 I see nothing as it is now.
Nor have I ever, since I began the dreaming. And yet I have put so much faith in the strange ‘reality’ of dreaming.
5 If I see nothing as it is now, it can truly be said that I see nothing.
So there is nothing to upset Me, cause Me pain or scare Me. There is nothing, that is, except My own imagination.
I can see only what is now. The choice is not whether to see the past or the present: it is merely whether to see or not. What I have chosen to see has cost me vision.
– For I have really chosen not to see God’s Reality.–
Now I would choose again that I may see.
 My thoughts do not mean anything.
They are but idle, unreal musings of a mind that’s been dreaming in a stupor!
6 I have no private thoughts. Yet it is only private thoughts of which I am aware. What can these thoughts mean? They do not exist, and so they mean nothing. Yet my mind is part of creation and part of its Creator. Would I not rather join the thinking of the universe than to obscure all that is really mine with my pitiful and meaningless “private” thoughts?
That could not be any clearer, could it?
1 Babci was my Mother-in-law. In her sixties She had a massive heart attack, and then a stroke on top of it. As She was refusing therapy, the hospital wanted Her in a nursing home. I suggested to my Husband that I work with her, improving her diet. Figuring She would say no, He asked her and She said yes.
She came with many pills that were quickly unnecessary. In one week She went from foetid dark brown urine, to going like a baby.
There’s much more to the story; and germane here is that She told me that one night in the hospital it came to her that She could walk, and to get up and do it. And She was afraid, and didn’t. And the point Brother was making is that I was like that the other night with the migraine.
And 99% of the time, I have very quick healings of them by listening to His Voice; the point being what the Lessons teach: It’s all in Our minds.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
