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.
Workbook PART I
Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
For when We are Light, all We can see is Light as Our Brothers. And as that holy Light, only Good is visible to Us.
1 It is your forgiveness that will bring the world of darkness to the light. Your Love will bear It. It is your forgiveness that lets you recognize the light in which you see. Forgiveness brings amazing clarity. Forgiveness is the demonstration that you are the light of the world. Through your forgiveness does the truth about yourself return to your memory. Now do You experience Love’s Presence as It’s Be-ing You. Therefore in your forgiveness lies your salvation. For You are blessed as You bless Your Brother.
2 Illusions about yourself and the world are one. That is why all forgiveness is a gift to yourself. The criticism that You levy on Your Brother now does fall on You as well. Forgiveness saves You by its Love, dissipating Your goal is to find out who you are, having denied your identity by attacking creation and its Creator. Now you are learning how to remember the truth. For this, attack must be replaced by forgiveness so that thoughts of life may replace thoughts of death. Forgiveness is not a word to be spouted, bandied about because it is the catchword of this Course. It must flower from the Love that stands quietly behind it.
3 Remember that in every attack you call upon your own weakness, – to be unforgiving is the only enemy of peace – while every time you forgive you call upon the strength of Christ in you. You are much more than You believed You were. Do you not then begin to understand what forgiveness will do for you? It will remove all sense of weakness, strain, and fatigue from your mind. It will take away all fear and guilt and pain. It will restore the invulnerability and power God gave His Son to your awareness. Thus ending any possibility of fear. And with fear gone, it is obvious that only Love is Real. Fear belongs only to the dream, never to the Real.
4 Let us be glad to begin and end this day by practicing today’s idea and to use it as frequently as possible throughout the day. It will help to make the day as happy for you as God wants you to be. And it will help those around you as well as those who seem to be far away in space and time to share this happiness with you. For We All experience Your thoughts, and vice versa. Thinking isn’t private. Remember that I’ve said Your thought is as obvious as if it were written right across Your forehead.
5 As often as you can, closing your eyes if possible, say to yourself:
6 Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
I would fulfill my function that I may be happy. Again, what is forgiveness but the willingness to Love kindly replacing hate.
7 Then devote a minute or two to considering your function and the happiness and release it will bring you.
8 Let related thoughts come freely, for your heart will recognize these words, and in your mind is the awareness that they are true. Should your attention wander, repeat the idea and add:
9 I would remember this because I want to be happy. So many do not know that this is really possible. Let Me show Them with joy!
