W-353: My eyes, my tongue, my hands, my feet today have but one purpose; to be given Christ to use to bless the world with miracles.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

When I do not interfere, my eyes, my tongue, my hands, my feet are used as a conduit for God’s Love.  I am healed in the process of blessing the world with miracles.  Pure vessel, clear conduit, undone personally, discovered Universally.

LESSON 353

My eyes, my tongue, my hands, my feet today
Have but one purpose; to be given Christ
To use to bless the world with miracles.

 Father, I give all that is mine today to Christ, to use in any way that best will serve the purpose that I share with Him.  Nothing is mine alone, for He and I have joined in purpose.  Thus has learning come almost to its appointed end.  A while I work with Him to serve His purpose.  Then I lose myself in my Identity, and recognize that Christ is but my Self.

W-352: Judgment and love are opposites. From one come all the sorrows of the world. But from the other comes the peace of God Himself.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

I have within me both the memory of Love and the One Who leads me to Love … when I suspend all judgment and allow complete disorientation and release of personal identity then the memory of Love surfaces naturally, easefully and reveals what never was does not exist but What Always Is, Is Still …

LESSON 352

Judgment and love are opposites.  From one
Come all the sorrows of the world.  But from
The other comes the peace of God Himself.

Forgiveness looks on sinlessness alone, and judges not.  Through this I come to You.  Judgment will bind my eyes and make me blind.  Yet love, reflected in forgiveness here, reminds me You have given me a way to find Your peace again.  I am redeemed when I elect to follow in this way.  You have not left me comfortless.  I have within me both the memory of you, and the One Who leads me to it.  Father, I would hear Your Voice and find Your peace today.  For I would love my own Identity, and find in It the memory of You.

W-351: My sinless brother is my guide to peace. My sinful brother is my guide to pain. And which I choose to see I will behold.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

If I see my brother as sinful, I see a sinner when I look in the mirror.  If I see my brother as innocent, I see the face of Christ when I look in the mirror.  Choosing to see the face of Christ relieves us all of “alone and friendless” and gives us mental safety in a crazy dream world; I choose to walk with Spirit in the Name of Love.

LESSON 351

My sinless brother is my guide to peace.
My sinful brother is my guide to pain.
And which I choose to see I will behold.

 Who is my brother but Your holy Son?  And if I see him sinful I proclaim myself a sinner, not a Son of God; alone and friendless in a fearful world.  Yet this perception is a choice I make, and can relinquish.  I can also see my brother sinless, as Your holy Son.  And with this choice I see my sinlessness, my everlasting Comforter and Friend beside me, and my way secure and clear.  Choose, then, for me, my Father, through Your Voice.  For He alone gives judgment in Your Name.

14. What Am I?

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

In Part II of the Workbook, every 10 lessons we are given an instruction.  It comes in the form of a question.  There are 14 of these questions all together, and each one of them corresponds to a set of 10 lessons, and is to be read every day for the next 10 days along with our lesson for the day.  “What Am I?” is the fourteenth and final instruction and goes with Lessons 351 – 360.

14.  What Am I?

 I am God’s Son, complete and healed and whole, shining in the reflection of His Love. In me is His creation sanctified and guaranteed eternal life. In me is love perfected, fear impossible, and joy established without opposite. I am the holy home of God Himself. I am the Heaven where His Love resides. I am His holy Sinlessness Itself, for in my purity abides His Own.

Our use for words is almost over now. Yet in the final days of this one year we gave to God together, you and I, we found a single purpose that we shared. And thus you joined with me, so what I am are you as well. The truth of what we are is not for words to speak of nor describe. Yet we can realize our function here, and words can speak of this and teach it, too, if we exemplify the words in us.

We are the bringers of salvation. We accept our part as saviors of the world, which through our joint forgiveness is redeemed. And this, our gift, is therefore given us. We look on everyone as brother, and perceive all things as kindly and as good. We do not seek a function that is past the gate of Heaven. Knowledge will return when we have done our part. We are concerned only with giving welcome to the truth.

Ours are the eyes through which Christ’s vision sees a world redeemed from every thought of sin. Ours are the ears that hear the Voice for God proclaim the world as sinless. Ours the minds that join together as we bless the world. And from the oneness that we have attained we call to all our brothers, asking them to share our peace and consummate our joy.

We are the holy messengers of God who speak for Him, and carrying His Word to everyone whom He has sent to us, we learn that it is written on our hearts. And thus our minds are changed about the aim for which we came, and which we seek to serve. We bring glad tidings to the Son of God, who thought he suffered. Now is he redeemed. And as he sees the gate of Heaven stand open before him, he will enter in and disappear into the Heart of God.

Remember, in Part II of the Workbook, every 10 lessons we are given an instruction.  It comes in the form of a question.  There are 14 of these questions all together, and each one of them corresponds to a set of 10 lessons, and is to be read every day for the next 10 days along with our lesson for the day.  “What Am I?” is the fourteenth and final instruction and goes with Lessons 351 – 360.

W-350: Miracles mirror God’s eternal Love. To offer them is to remember Him, and through His memory to save the world.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

The Light is in my brother no matter what role his personality plays in this dream.  His character can be despicable or virtuous — his Light is still the same.  When I look into the mirror of God’s Love, I see God’s Love reflected back at me — God’s Love is the “Who” and the “What” I really am.  Reflections upon reflections upon reflections of Limitless Love is the final leg of a roadless journey undertaken in imagination yet never achieved in Reality.

LESSON 350

Miracles mirror God’s eternal Love.
To offer them is to remember Him,
And through His memory to save the world.

What we forgive becomes a part of us, as we perceive ourselves.  The Son of God incorporates all things within himself as You created him.  Your memory depends on his forgiveness.  What he is, is unaffected by his thoughts.  But what he looks upon is their direct result.  Therefore, my Father, I would turn to You.  Only Your memory will set me free.  And only my forgiveness teaches me to let Your memory return to me, and give it to the world in thankfulness.

And as we gather miracles from Him, we will indeed be grateful.  For as we remember Him, His Son will be restored to us in the reality of Love.

W-349: Today I let Christ’s vision look upon all things for me and judge them not, but give each one a miracle of love instead.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

When Christ’s vision look upon all things for me without judgment, a twinkle of pure light transforms each one and every thing, and Light reveals Love every where.

 

 

 

LESSON 349

Today I let Christ’s vision look upon
All things for me and judge them not, but give
Each one a miracle of love instead.

 So would I liberate all things I see, and give to them the freedom that I seek.  For thus do I obey the law of love, and give what I would find and make my own.  It will be given me, because I have chosen it as the gift I want to give.  Father, Your gifts are mine.  Each one that I accept gives me a miracle to give.  And giving as I would receive, I learn Your healing miracles belong to me.

Our Father knows our needs.  He gives us grace to meet them all.  And so we trust in Him to send us miracles to bless the world, and heal our minds as we return to Him.

W-348: I have no cause for anger or for fear, for You surround me. And in every need that I perceive, Your grace suffices me.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

Remembering that my Father is with me always, very very close, nearer than my very breath, my eyelashes, my nails, my tongue, my hands, my feet … remembering that takes care of everything.  Isn’t it odd to believe that I need anger and fear?  On a deep, unconscious level, the ego has us all believing there is something to fear, and that fear is good protection.  That doesn’t reasonate anymore and disallowing that nonsense “thinking” is easier and easier as I enter God’s embrace and discover grace in everyone and everything everywhere, now.

LESSON 348

I have no cause for anger or for fear, 
for You surround me.  And in every need
That I perceive, Your grace suffices me.

Father, let me remember You are here, and I am not alone.  Surrounding me is everlasting Love.  I have no cause for anything except the perfect peace and joy I share with You.  What need have I for anger or for fear?  Surrounding me is perfect safety.  Can I be afraid, when Your eternal promise goes with me?  Surrounding me is perfect sinlessness.  What can I fear, when You created me in holiness as perfect as Your Own?

God ‘s grace suffices us in everything that He would have us do.  And only that we choose to be our will as well as His.

W-347: Anger must come from judgment. Judgment is the weapon I would use against myself, to keep the miracle away from me.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

Atonement is the only weapon my Father offers me to combat fear.  Fear leads to anger and judgment.  Atonement is the Love principle itself, and cuts only one way: all calls for Love are met with Love, and Love is met with Love.  Atonement is the undoing of fear and separation.  Atonement is the paradoxical achievement of what never went away but was simply buried in illusion that Unity could be divided.  Atonement is the miracle that dissolves attachment to our perverse need to judge another, projecting out what we believe about ourselves, to achieve temporary relief.  This belief in judgment never works — how many times have we tried it and still been left unsatisfied?  Atonement judges us as completely loved and lovable, and it is this that I listen to today.

LESSON 347

Anger must come from judgment.  Judgment is
The weapon I would use against myself,
To keep the miracle away from me.

Father, I want what goes against my will, and do not want what is my will to have.  Straighten my mind, my Father.  It is sick.  But You have offered freedom, and I choose to claim Your gift today.  And so I give all judgment to the One You gave to me to judge for me.  He sees what I behold, and yet He knows the truth.  He looks on pain, and yet He understands it is not real, and in His understanding it is healed.  He gives the miracles my dreams would hide from my awareness.  Let Him judge today.  I do not know my will, but He is sure it is Your Own.  And He will speak for me, and call Your miracles to come to me.

Listen today.  Be very still, and hear the gentle Voice for God assuring you that He has judged you as the Son He loves.

W-346: Today the peace of God envelops me, And I forget all things except His Love.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

I would forget all things except Your Love.  I would remember only the truth of Your Love.  Your Love transcends time and time is nothing but a dream of leaving You.  To stop dreaming, awaken, know the truth of You is all I desire to desire without desire.  I allow the Peace of God to envelop me and feel a calm and relaxation suffuse me …

LESSON 346

Today the peace of God envelops me,
And I forget all things except His Love.

Father, I wake today with miracles correcting my perception of all things.  And so begins the day I share with You as I will share eternity, for time has stepped aside today.  I do not seek the things of time, and so I will not look upon them.  What I seek today transcends all laws of time and things perceived in time.  I would forget all things except Your Love.  I would abide in You, and know no laws except Your law of love.  And I would find the peace which You created for Your Son, forgetting all the foolish toys I made as I behold Your glory and my own.

And when the evening comes today, we will remember nothing but the peace of God.  For we will learn today what peace is ours, when we forget all things except God’s Love.

W-345: I offer only miracles today, For I would have them be returned to me.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

Instead of looking at a mirror and seeing myself, I can look into my Father’s mirror and see reflected what He sees when He looks at me, His Son.  The Unified shining Light that only Loves is all there is.  When I open myself as a conduit to the Holy Spirit … when I am willing to receive the healing that leads to true perception … only miracles exist, for I would offer them to have them and receive them to give them.

LESSON 345

I offer only miracles today,
For I would have them be returned to me.

Father, a miracle reflects Your gifts to me, Your Son.  And every one I give returns to me, reminding me the law of love is universal.  Even here, it takes a form which can be recognized and see to work.  The miracles I give are given back in just the form I need to help me with the problems I perceive.  Father, in Heaven it is different, for there, there are no needs.  But here on earth, the miracle is closer to Your gifts than any other gift that I can give.  then let me give this gift alone today, which, born of true forgiveness, lights the way that I must travel to remember You.

Peace to all seeking hearts today.  The light has come to offer miracles to bless the tired world.  It will find rest today, for we will offer what we have received.
