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.

I call upon God’s name and on my own.
They must be the same in quality for God is My Father, as well as Mother. The question, then, is really: What am I?
What is the answer: I am Son of God. I am that I am. This is important! For how can I awaken believing that I’m only something called a ‘human’? For ‘human’ is ‘dirt man’, a product but of pure delusion, egregrious lies about the Son of God; the Son that You are.
Would You believe them?
1 God’s Name is holy, but no holier than yours. For what are You Son of but Holiness! To call upon His Name is but to call upon your own. In the dream this saying isn’t always truth; as Reality it surely is: Like Father, like Son. A father gives his son his name, and thus identifies the son with him. His brothers – and His sisters too – share his name, and thus are they united in a bond to which they turn for their identity. I wonder what it is I really am? Am I but ‘human’, or, even worse, some thing called a ‘mortal’? Your Father’s Name reminds you who you are, even within a world that does not know; even though you have not remembered it. Still You are the Son. Remember the Prince taken by the gypsies, wearing gypsy clothes, thinking gypsy thoughts, speaking gypsy tongue, yet still the Prince.
2 God’s Name cannot be heard without response, nor said without an echo in the mind which calls you to remember. Say His Name, and you invite the angels to surround the ground on which you stand and sing to you as they spread out their wings to keep you safe and shelter you from every worldly thought that would intrude upon your holiness. Call upon God – even as an expletive as You did once when calling Me – and S/He responds with this same Host of Angels!
3 Repeat God’s Name and all the world responds by laying down illusions. There is but one Power, and God is It! Every dream the world holds dear has suddenly gone by, and where it seemed to stand you find a star; a miracle of grace. The sick arise, healed of their sickly thoughts. The blind can see; the deaf can hear; the sorrowful cast off their mourning, and the tears of pain are dried as happy laughter comes to bless the world. Just as in that ancient prayer: the Lord Our God, the Lord is One. One God: One infinitum Presence.
4 Repeat the Name of God and little names have lost their meaning (but not their God-given Identity; no, surely not that). No temptation but becomes a nameless and unwanted thing before God’s Name. His Glory is such that all things of the dream are but outshone. Repeat His Name – God, God, God, God, God! – and see how easily you will forget the names of all the gods you value. They have lost the name of god you gave them. They become anonymous and valueless to you, although before you let the Name of God replace their little names, you stood before them worshipfully, naming them as gods. You remember how important they did seem to You; and yet they were but nothing.
5 Repeat the Name of God and call upon your Self, Whose Name is His. Like Father, like Son, when God is the Father, and the Son; therefore, the Son of God. Repeat His Name and all the tiny, nameless things on earth slip into right perspective. For His Idea is really All-Power. Those who call upon the Name of God cannot mistake the nameless for the Name, nor sin for grace, nor bodies for the holy Son of God. In other words, the Name of God – as Your Name – does free You from the dream, free You up for Reality.
6 And should you join a brother as you sit with him in silence and repeat God’s Name along with him within your quiet minds, you have established there an altar which reaches to God Himself and to His Son. Recall that I have said: “When two or more are gathered in My Name, I am there. What does that really mean, but Your willingness to gather for Me, for God, rather than for Your ego selves. Practice but this today; repeat God’s Name slowly again and still again. Become oblivious to every name but His. See God everywhere!
7 Hear nothing else. In other words, do shut up the ego! Let all your thoughts become anchored on this. God, God, God, God, God. I know I said that before! Don’t worry! Simplicity is but the holy key. No other words we use except at the beginning, when we say today’s idea but once. Or repetitions, if they are needed. Till You reach this state: And then God’s Name becomes our only thought, our only word, the only thing that occupies our minds, the only wish we have, the only sound with any meaning, and the only name of everything that we desire to see; of everything that we would call our own. And this state is on beyond amazing to spectacular!
8 Thus do we give an invitation which can never be refused. Even by the very hardest hearted. And God will come and answer it Himself. For He so Loves You! Think not He hears the little prayers of those who call on Him with names of idols cherished by the world. They cannot reach Him thus. He cannot hear requests that He be not Himself or that His Son receive another name than His. Healing comes from Your willingness and Your enthusiasm to reach out to God.
9 Repeat His Name, and you acknowledge Him as sole Creator of reality. The Name of God does bring with It Your holy understanding. And you acknowledge also that His Son is part of Him, creating in His Name. Sit silently, and let His Name become the all-encompassing idea which holds your mind completely. For His Name cannot be separated from His pure Nature. Let all thoughts be still except this one. And to all other thoughts respond with this, and see God’s Name replace the thousand little names you gave your thoughts, not realizing that there is one Name for all there is and all that there will be. For God alone is but Reality.
10 Today you can achieve a state in which you will experience the gifts of grace. What could be better? The grace of God is everything to You. You can escape all bondage of the world and give the world the same release you found. Does this seem far-fetched or impossible? I promise You, it is quite possible! You can remember what the world forgot and offer it your own remembering. Yes! It’s possible. You can accept today the part you play in its salvation and your own as well, and both can be accomplished perfectly. I’m glad You like My rhymes, and don’t let them distract You from what I am saying here, belovèd Sister!1
11 Turn to the Name of God for your release, and it is given you. Freely You have received, as freely give. No prayer but this is necessary, for it holds them all within it. Words are insignificant and all requests unneeded when God’s Son calls on his Father’s Name. His Father’s Thoughts become his own. What is with all this “name” stuff? You wonder. Remember: name is synonymous with nature. He makes his claim to all his Father gave, is giving still, and will forever give, for Eternity. He calls on Him to let all things he thought he made be nameless now, and in their place the holy Name of God becomes his judgment of their worthlessness. He – and “He” is You – asks but for His, for Her, inheritance: daily portion from the King, forever; eternal manna. Such, the Gifts of God, given All of You.
12 All little things are silent. I speak not of little creatures here, but rather the smallness of the dream, all its limits; constricting Love; constricting Life. Little sounds are soundless now. The little things of earth have disappeared. All the pettiness of “being human”. The universe consists of nothing but the Son of God who calls upon his Father. And his Father’s Voice gives answer in his Father’s holy Name. What does this mean? With words I do my best to give expression, which You understand, to heal ongoing illusions of the sleeping Son of God. Gentle healing, giving Truth, rather than attacking error. In this eternal, still relationship, – the one You thought was forever ruptured – in which communication far transcends all words and yet exceeds in depth and height whatever words could possibly convey, – comes forth Your Knowing – is peace eternal. In our Father’s Name, we would experience this peace today. And in His Name it shall be given us. We will let God – and not ego – be Our Mind and Our Nature; be Reality.
