1 For morning and evening review:
 God, being Love, is also happiness.
Although it may not seem this way in the dream, Love is always happiness, joy pressed down and running over, more than enough for the entire endless Universe!
This is not the self-absorbed, partial ‘love’ of the ego though; a thing to be given or withheld, just depending on the whim of the giver.
Not so the Love of God of which He is Be-ing Us. For Love is not some thing to be bestowed on certain Ones, and to be withheld from Others.
It is both the Substance and the Nature of All Creation. And It is synonym to Spirit when referred to Substance. And it is synonym to Life, when referred to Existence. Synonym to Soul when referred to each One’s Identity. So do All God’s Great Rays work Together.
2 Let me remember love is happiness
And nothing else brings joy. And so I choose
To entertain no substitutes for love.
What does block Your natural flow as Love’s Living Presence but that ancient ‘devil’: unforgiveness. i.e. a lack of giving, an insistence on revenge, on getting even for ‘wrongs’ both ‘real’ and imagined.
Dreaming is so full with opportunities, where One may revel in grievances. Thus You find Your freedom in Your desire to Awaken.
Why fix a dream but to keep on dreaming? You see, the remedy is quite simple. To end a nightmare, choose to Awaken.
 I seek but what belongs to me in truth.
And that is but freedom from this endless nightmare of dreaming to recognize that You are the blessed, Holy Son of God.
3 Love is my heritage and with it joy.
Love and Joy are but Your very Substance; You know: not the 3 b’s (brain, blood, bones). Truth is: You are Spirit.
These are the gifts my Father gave to me.
These are the Gifts My Father gives as Me to Be freely to All My Brothers. “Freely You have received, just as freely give.” Your Love is endless.
I would accept all that is mine in truth.
It is What I am!
4 On the hour:
5 God, being Love, is also happiness.
6 On the half hour:
7 I seek but what belongs to me in truth.
1 Our third review begins today. – And before You read any further, I would like to comment about the Lessons, as well as the purpose of the reviews.
From time far on beyond Your comprehension, have You been dreaming idle dreams that serve only the purpose of keeping You addicted to the dream. And in this they have been quite successful.
We so long for Your joyous homecoming. Yet Dreamers seem not too, being content with the state of dreaming, having totally forgotten the wondrous Joys of Home.
Thus the creation of these Lessons to remind You; and that is, literally, to re-mind You; restore Your mind to You. They’re quite important.
Since each One of You in the dream marches to Your own drummer, the Lessons have the potential to have All who do them be on the same page, so to speak. The power of that is astronomical, for it becomes – for You: the shared thoughts – a memory of how it is at Home. How comforting and safe that is.
The reviews take the new thoughts and make them much more familiar.
The time You give to them sharing them with Me, makes them so much more precious. So dear to both of Us, as We Join together.
We will review two of the last 20 ideas each day until we have reviewed them all. We will observe a special format for these practice periods which you are urged to follow as closely as you can. We understand, of course, that it may be impossible for you to undertake what is suggested here as optimal each day and every hour of the day.
2 Learning will not be hampered when you miss a practice period because it is impossible at the appointed time. Nor is it necessary that you make excessive efforts to be sure that you catch up in terms of numbers. Rituals are not our aim and would defeat our learning goal.
3 But learning will be hampered when you skip a practice period because you are unwilling to devote the time to it which you are asked to give. Do not deceive yourself in this. Unwillingness can be most carefully concealed behind a cloak of situations you cannot control. Learn to distinguish situations which are poorly suited to your practicing from those which you establish to uphold a camouflage for your unwillingness.
4 Those practice periods which you have lost because you did not want to do them for whatever reason should be done as soon as you have changed your mind about your goal. You are unwilling to cooperate in practicing salvation only if it interferes with goals you hold more dear. When you withdraw the value given them, allow your practice periods to be replacements for your litanies to them. They gave you nothing. But your practice periods offer you everything. Accept their offering and be at peace.
5 The format you should use for these reviews is this: devote five minutes twice a day or longer if you would prefer to contemplating the ideas assigned. Read over the ideas and comments which are written first in each day’s exercises. Then begin to think about them quietly, letting your mind relate them to your needs, your seeming problems, and all your concerns.
6 Place the ideas within your mind, and let it use them as it chooses. Give it faith that it will use them wisely, being helped in its decisions by the One Who gave the thoughts to you. What can you trust but what is in your mind? Have faith, in these reviews, the means the Holy Spirit uses will not fail. The wisdom of your mind will come to your assistance. Give it direction at the start, then lean back in quiet faith, and let it use the ideas you have given it as they were given you.
7 You have been given them in perfect trust, in perfect confidence that you would use them well, in perfect faith that you would understand their messages and use them for yourself. Offer them to your mind in that same trust and confidence and faith. It will not fail. It is the Holy Spirit’s chosen means for your salvation. And with His trust merits yours as well.
8 We emphasize the benefits to you if you devote the first five minutes of the day to your review and also give the last five minutes of your waking day to it. If this cannot be done, at least try to divide them so you undertake one in the morning, and the other in the hour just before you go to sleep.
9 The exercises to be done throughout the day are equally important and perhaps of even greater value. You have been inclined to do the exercises and then go on to other things, without applying what you learned to them. As a result, your learning has had little reinforcement, and you have not given it the opportunity to prove its worth to you.
10 Here is another chance to use it well. In these reviews we stress the need to let your learning not lie idly by between your longer practice periods. Attempt to give your daily two ideas a brief but serious review each hour. Use one on the hour and the other one a half an hour later. You need not give more than just a moment to each one.
11 Repeat it, and allow your mind to rest a little time in silence and in peace. Then turn to other things, but try to keep the thought with you and let it serve to help you keep your peace throughout the day. If you are shaken, think of it again. These practice periods are planned to help you form the habit of applying what you learn each day to everything you do.
12 Do not repeat it and then lay it down. Its usefulness is limitless to you. And it is meant to serve you in all ways, all times and places, and whenever you need help of any kind. Try, then, to take it with you in the business of the day and make it holy, worthy of God’s Son, acceptable to God and to your Self.
13 Each day’s review assignment will conclude with a restatement of the thought to use each hour and the one to be applied on each half hour as well. Forget them not. This second chance with each of these ideas will bring such large advances that we come from these reviews with learning gains so great that we begin again on solid ground.
14 Do not forget how little you have learned. Do not forget how much you can learn now. Do not forget your Father’s need of you as you review these thoughts He gave to you.
What a grateful thing to be in harmony with the Father. Grateful for You, and for the Father too.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
