LESSON EIGHTY-NINE

Love's Guidance

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.


REVIEW II

1 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 each 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.

2 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 three or four minutes to reading them over slowly, several times if you wish, and then close your eyes and listen.

While the ideas – of themselves – are quite important, the crucial part is the Listening, Our Communion.

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.

3 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. – The ego mindset is quite good at distraction. – Realize that, whatever form they take, they have no meaning and no power. – Each and every thought coming from the ego mindset is meaningless, for it comes from belief in a ‘reality’ that is non-existent. – Replace them with your determination to succeed. Do not forget that your will has power over all fantasies and dreams. – The choice is always Yours.  Choose once again until Your choice is always God and Love. – Trust it to see you through and carry you beyond them all.

4 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.

What else could You be doing that is as important as this is?  No other endeavor has worth even close to this one.

5 Reaffirm your determination in the shorter practice periods as well, 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.

It is Your heart’s desire and Your diligence that matter.  Desire is prayer.

1 These are our review ideas for today: with much to be learned about Our right to them and their purpose.

[77] I am entitled to miracles.  A miracle – rightly received – makes You, the recipient, so very happy.

2 I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God’s.  His Laws are Light, and bring this Light to You, and all the world. His laws release me from all grievances and replace them with miracles. THE HOLY SPIRIT knows that is just wonderful; the ego thinks it’s disaster.  Which one is in charge: happiness or hell?

Choice is always Mine, and I can always choose again.  The ego is so very persuasive.  I can just try it.

Why not make the right choice now.  Why delay for another moment?  Each passing moment in the dream is a lost Holy Instant.  Why deprive Yourself of peace and joy?  For what, exactly?  Nothing but the petty, useless ego.

You can now make another choice, … right now!  Would You not rather have a miracle than to be insane?  Sanity gives You peace and happiness, and is much more fun!  It’s a simple choice.

I know You’re right belovèd Brother, and I listen to You!  I can start right now.

And I would accept the miracles in place of the grievances, which are but illusions that hide the miracles beyond.  It is a good trade.  I must admit it.  I know this will be a great adventure. So let’s get started!  Now I would accept only what the laws of God entitle me to have that I may use it on behalf of the function He has given me.

Forgiveness is a Gift of Love and power.  How so?  It makes You Whole first, and then restores Your Brother.  And what is Your Wholeness but the Son of God now coming back into His Right Mind!  This is the why of A Course In Miracles, not just endless sinning/forgiving.  It’s Awakening, the end of the dream; Your return to Heaven right here and now.

3 You might use these suggestions for specific applications of this idea:

4 Behind this is a miracle to which I am entitled.  I’ve only blocked them.  Now I’ll accept them, starting this instant!
Let me not hold a grievance against you [name],
but offer you the miracle that belongs to you instead. 
For if I really knew Myself and You, there would be nothing but the Son of God.  And I would remember by loving You.
Seen truly, this offers me a miracle.

Miracles bless Giver and Receiver.

[78] Let miracles replace all grievances.   “All grievances”, not just one or two, or ten, but every one.

5 By this idea do I unite my will with the Holy Spirit’s and perceive them as one. By this idea do I accept my release from hell.  Grievances have seemed appealing, but they are an instant hell and they keep You there.  Be smart, reject them.  By this idea do I express my willingness to have all my illusions be replaced with truth according to God’s plan for my salvation.  The Holy Spirit is not foreign to Me, for It is nothing but My Right Mind.  Why would I not so gladly accept It! I would make no exceptions and no substitutes. I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have.  What has the ego given Me: pain, sorrow, all misery!

6 Useful specific forms for applying this idea would be:

7 I would not hold this grievance apart from my salvation.   I can choose happiness and let it go.  And I will do that!
Let our grievances be replaced by miracles, [name]. 
For We truly can Love One another.
Beyond this is the miracle by which all my grievances are replaced. 
And I will claim it now for every One of Us, joyously!

[Thank you Dear Brother]
