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.

Now are we one with Him Who is our Source.
And not just now, We have been so forever. We had deliberately forgotten Oneness for it did not suit the selfish nature of the dreaming. And now We are remembering. How good it feels! How safe, how comforting, to not be alone. How much We Love Our Source and each Other!
1 What time but now can truth be recognized? The present is the only time there is. Which is why the ego just loves procrastination!
And so today, this instant, now, we come to look upon what is forever there-not in our sight, – blinded by all of Our self-centeredness – but in the eyes of Christ. All are included in His Self; no-One is ever left out.
He looks past time and sees eternity as represented there. He hears the sounds the senseless busy world engenders, yet He hears them faintly, for beyond them all He hears the song of Heaven and the Voice of God more clear, more meaningful, more near. He is never distracted by the world because His mind is stayed Heaven, while yet He walks the world as Our Companion.
2 The world fades easily away before His sight. Its sounds grow dim. A melody from far beyond the world increasingly is more and more distinct-an ancient call to which He gives an ancient answer. You will recognize them both. For they are but your answer to your Father’s call to you. As You do begin to remember – to feel and hear – the forgotten song of Love that always sings to You. You forgot to hear it when You fell into the dream. It is dawning on You, just how much You’ve given up in Your foolish quest for Your self-determination.
Christ answers for you, echoing your Self, using your voice to give His glad consent, accepting your deliverance for you. Remember to show Your gratitude by staying in constant communion with Him … if You are grateful. If You aren’t, then work on gratitude.
3 How holy is your practicing today, as Christ gives you His sight and hears for you and answers in your name the call He hears. Once again do I encourage You to make no decisions on Your own at all.
How quiet is the time you give to spend with Him beyond the world. How easily are all your seeming sins forgot and all your sorrows unremembered. – Here You stand in a land unmarked by time, sorrow or grievance. Like Rumi’s field out beyond right and wrong, is the time You spend with Your Self, We call the Holy Spirit. How joyous it is to law down all sadness and grievances. How good to be free! – On this day is grief laid by, for sights and sounds which come from nearer than the world are made clear to you who will today accept the gifts He gives. How glad You are! How light You feel to day. You had not understood just how heavy were these burdens, and how they weighed You down.
4 There is a silence into which the world can not intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. It is as if You had a treasure long buried under so much useless stuff within the basement of Your home. The gold is there, You just had completely forgotten all about it. And now You are being reminded that You are the Son of God. It’s actuality, not fantasy.
There is a sense of holiness in you the thought of sin has never touched. All this today you will remember. Faithfulness in practicing today will bring rewards so great and so completely different from all things you sought before that you will know that here your treasure is and here your rest. And as I said centuries ago: Where Your treasure is, there is Your heart also. To treasure the Son of God that You really are is the return of Sanity.
5 This is the day when vain imaginings part like a curtain to reveal what lies beyond them. – Your Reality. – Now is what is really there made visible, – the Son of God who’s really there because He is everywhere. – while all the shadows which appeared to hide it sink to obscurity. – As the Light rises, the shadows vanish. – Now is the balance righted and the scales of judgment left to Him Who judges true. – As I have said before the verdict always is not guilty. – And in His judgment will a world unfold in perfect innocence before your eyes. Now will you see it with the eyes of Christ. Now is its transformation clear to you. Reality is always perfection.
6 Brothers, this day is sacred to the world. Your vision, given you from far beyond all things within the world, looks back on them in a new light. And what you see becomes the healing and salvation of the world. The valuable and valueless are both perceived and recognized for what they are. And what is worthy of your love receives your love, while nothing to be feared remains. You see, as You read My words, how important every thought You have is to the world, and to each Other.
7 We will not judge today. We will receive but what is given us from judgment made beyond the world. Our practicing today becomes our gift of thankfulness for our release from blindness and from misery. All that we see will but increase our joy because its holiness reflects our own. We stand forgiven in the sight of Christ, with all the world forgiven in our own. As We stand together to Love and bless the world, the world does feels this Love, and everything enlightens. And We feel blessing flow right back to Us. For everything is grateful to be loved.
8 We bless the world as we behold it in the light in which our Savior looks on us and offer it the freedom given us through His forgiving vision, now our own. The multitudes who came to Me for healing thought it was for their bodies. Yet it was their minds that cried out for Me, feeling for eternity.
Open the curtain in your practicing by merely letting go all things you think you want. All You really long for is freedom from the dream, for You are still among the multitudes and not the Saviours until You make connection with Holy Spirit Your priority.
Your trifling treasures put away and leave a clean and open space within your mind where Christ can come and offer you the treasure of salvation. He has need of your most holy mind to save the world. You understand that it is always Your mind of which We speak, and not the body, which only does the bidding of the mind.
9 Is not this purpose worthy to be yours? You know this question is rhetorical! It is the only Purpose in the dream.
Is not Christ’s vision worthy to be sought above the world’s unsatisfying goals? These are important questions that We ask. You have not yet realized to depth of self-preoccupation that it takes to remain an ego.
I would have You wake each day and say: ‘Father, Brother, Holy Spirit, what would You have Me do for You?
Let not today slip by without the gifts it holds for you receiving your consent and your acceptance. Will You accept My offer of a job in this world of unemployment? It’s volunteer, and the benefits go far beyond eternity. For this Love cannot be measured, but must be experienced.
We can change the world if you acknowledge them. You may not see the value your acceptance gives the world. So let’s bring it right home to number One: But this you surely want-you can exchange all suffering for joy this very day. All this by simply changing Your Teacher: allegiance to the Holy Spirit and not to the ego.
Practice in earnest, and the gift is yours. Exchange lip service now for whole-hearted participation.
Would God deceive you? Can His promise fail? Think You the ego more reliable? That’s preposterous. The ego cares not at all for You, but for its survival, while You are the Father’s most belovèd. Can you withhold so little when His Hand holds out complete salvation to His Son? Can You not feel His majesty and Love in the consistency of every sunrise, the breeze that does caress You, the mulberries falling from the tree to bless You with their sweetness, the fragrance of the roses, the warmth of sun on sand, all the different bird songs, and that eternal place of stillness in Your mind.
Let Yourself feel how much You’re loved by God and All Creation!
[Thank you Dear Brother]
