ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

1 Beginning with today, we will have a series of review periods. Each of them will cover five of the ideas already presented, starting with the first and ending with the fiftieth. There will be a few short comments after each of the ideas which you should consider in your review. In the practice periods, the exercises should be done as follows:

2 Begin the day by reading the five ideas, with the comments included. Thereafter, it is not necessary to follow any particular order in considering them, though each one should be practiced at least once. Devote two minutes or more to each practice period, thinking about the idea and the related comments. Do this as often as possible during the day. If any one of the five ideas appeals to you more than the others, concentrate on that one. At the end of the day, however, be sure to review all of them once more.

3 It is not necessary to cover the comments that follow each idea literally or thoroughly in the practice periods. Rather, try merely to emphasize the central point and think about it as part of your review of the idea to which it relates.

4 The review exercises should be done with your eyes closed and when you are alone in a quiet place if possible. This is emphasized particularly for reviews at your stage of learning. It will be necessary, however, that you learn to require no special settings in which to apply what you have learned. You will need it most in situations which appear to be upsetting, rather than in those which already seem to be calm and quiet.

5 The purpose of your learning is to enable you to bring the quiet with you and to heal distress and turmoil. This is not done by avoiding them and seeking a haven of isolation for yourself. You will yet learn that peace is part of you and requires only that you be there to embrace any situation in which you are. And finally you will learn that there is no limit to where you are, so that your peace is everywhere, as you are.

6 You will note that for review purposes the ideas are not always given in quite their original form of statement. Use them as they are given here. It is not necessary to return to the original statements nor to apply the ideas as was suggested then. We are now emphasizing the relationships among the first fifty of the ideas we have covered and the cohesiveness of the thought system to which they are leading you.

WORKBOOK INTRODUCTION
<AUDIO> <VIDEO><ON-LINE>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio

1 A theoretical foundation such as the text is necessary as a background to make these exercises meaningful. Yet it is the exercises which will make the goal possible. An untrained mind can accomplish nothing. It is the purpose of these exercises to train the mind to think along the lines which the course sets forth.

2 The exercises are very simple. They do not require more than a few minutes, and it does not matter where or when you do them. They need no preparation. They are numbered, running from 1 to 365. The training period is one year. Do not undertake more than one exercise a day.

3 The purpose of these exercises is to train the mind to a different perception of everything in the world. The workbook is divided into two sections, the first dealing with the undoing of what you see now and the second with the restoration of sight. It is recommended that each exercise be repeated several times a day, preferably in a different place each time and, if possible, in every situation in which you spend any long period of time. The purpose is to train the mind to generalize the lessons, so that you will understand that each of them is as applicable to one situation as it is to another.

4 Unless specified to the contrary, the exercise should be practiced with the eyes open, since the aim is to learn how to see. The only rule that should be followed throughout is to practice the exercises with great specificity. Each one applies to every situation in which you find yourself and to everything you see in it. Each day's exercises are planned around one central idea, the exercises themselves consisting of applying that idea to as many specifics as possible. Be sure that you do not decide that there are some things you see to which the idea for the day is inapplicable. The aim of the exercises will always be to increase the application of the idea to everything. This will not require effort. Only be sure that you make no exceptions in applying the idea.

5 Some of the ideas you will find hard to believe, and others will seem quite startling. It does not matter. You are merely asked to apply them to what you see. You are not asked to judge them, nor even to believe them. You are asked only to use them. It is their use which will give them meaning to you, and show you they are true. Remember only this-you need not believe them, you need not accept them, and you need not welcome them. Some of them you may actively resist. None of this will matter nor decrease their efficacy. But allow yourself to make no exceptions in applying the ideas the exercises contain. Whatever your reactions to the ideas may be, use them. Nothing more than this is required.

WORKBOOK EPILOGUE
<AUDIO> <VIDEO>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio

This course is a beginning, not an end.
Your Friend goes with you. You are not alone.
No-one who calls on Him can call in vain.
Whatever troubles you, be certain that
He has the answer, and will gladly give
it to you if you simply turn to Him,
and ask it of Him. He will not withhold
all answers that you need for anything
that seems to trouble you. He knows the way
to solve all problems and resolve all doubts.
His certainty is yours. You need but ask
it of Him, and it will be given you.

You are as certain of arriving home
as is the pathway of the sun laid down
before it rises, after it has set,
and in the half-lit hours in between.
Indeed, your pathway is more certain still,
for it can not be possible to change
the course of those whom God has called to Him.
Therefore obey your will, and follow Him
Whom you accepted as your voice, to speak
of what you really want and really need.
His is the Voice of God, and also yours.
And thus He speaks of freedom and of truth.

No more specific lessons are assigned,
for there is no more need of them. Henceforth,
hear but the Voice for God and for your Self
when you retire from the world, to seek
reality instead. He will direct
your efforts, telling you exactly what
to do, how to direct your mind, and when
to come to Him in silence, asking for
His sure direction and His certain Word.
His is the Word that God has given you.
His is the Word you chose to be your own.

And now I place you in His hands, to be
His faithful followers, with Him as Guide
through every difficulty, and all pain
that you may think is real. Nor will He give
you pleasures that will pass away, for He
gives only the eternal and the good.
Let Him prepare you further. He has earned
your trust by speaking daily to you of
your Father and your brother and your Self.
He will continue; now you walk with Him
as certain as is He of where you go;
as sure as He of how you must proceed,
as confident as He is of the goal,
and of your safe arrival in the end.

The end is certain, and the means as well.
To this we say "Amen." We will be told
exactly what God wills for us, each time
there is a choice to make. And He will speak
for God and for your Self, thus making sure
that hell will claim you not, and that each choice
you make brings Heaven nearer to your reach.
And so we walk with Him from this time on,
and turn to Him for guidance and for peace
and sure direction. Joy attends our way.
For we go homeward to an open door
that God has held unclosed to welcome us.

We trust our ways to Him and say "Amen."
In peace we will continue in His way
and trust all things to Him. In confidence
we wait His answers as we ask His will
for everything we do. He loves God's Son
as we would love him, and He teaches us
how to behold him through His eyes, and love
him as He does. You do not walk alone.
God's angels hover close and all about.
His Love surrounds you, and of this be sure:
that I will never leave you comfortless.

OUR FINAL LESSONS
<AUDIO><VIDEO>>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

Our final lessons will be left as free
of words as possible. We use them but
at the beginning of our practicing,
and only to remind us that we seek
to go beyond them. Let us turn to Him
Who leads the way and makes our footsteps sure.
To Him we leave these lessons, as to Him
we give our lives henceforth. For we would not
return again to the belief in sin
which made the world seem ugly and unsafe,
attacking and destroying, dangerous
in all its ways and treacherous beyond
the hope of trust and the escape from pain.

His is the only way to find the peace
that God has given us. It is His way
that everyone will travel in the end,
because it is this ending God Himself
appointed. In the dream of time it seems
to be far off. And yet, in truth, it is
already here; already serving us
as gracious guidance in the way to go.
Let us together follow in the way
that truth points out to us. And let us be
the leaders of our many brothers, who
are seeking for the way, but find it not.

And to this purpose let us dedicate
our minds, directing all our thoughts to serve
the function of salvation. Unto us
the aim is given to forgive the world.
It is the goal that God has given us.
It is His ending to the dream we seek,
and not our own. For all that we forgive
we will not fail to recognize as part
of God Himself. And thus His memory
is given back completely and complete.

It is our function to remember Him
on earth, as it is given us to be
His own completion in reality.
So let us not forget our goal is shared,
for it is that remembrance which contains
the memory of God, and points the way
to Him and to the Heaven of His peace.
And shall we not forgive our brother, who
can offer this to us? He is the way,
the truth and life that shows the way to us.
In him resides salvation, offered us
through our forgiveness, given unto him.

We will not end this year without the gift
our Father promised to His holy Son.
We are forgiven now, and we are saved
from all the wrath we thought belonged to God,
and found it was a dream. We are restored
to sanity, in which we understand
that anger is insane, attack is mad,
and vengeance merely foolish fantasy.
We have been saved from wrath because we learned
we were mistaken. Nothing more than that.
And is a father angry at his son
because he failed to understand the truth?

We come in honesty to Him, and say
we did not understand, and ask Him to
help us to learn His lessons through the Voice
of His own Teacher. Would He hurt His Son?
Or would He rush to answer him, and say,
"This is my Son, and all I have is his?"
Be certain He will answer thus, for these
are His own Words to you. And more than that
can no one ever have, for in these Words
is all there is and all that there will be
throughout all time and in eternity.

WHAT AM I?
<AUDIO><VIDEO>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

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 abides.
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 Saviours 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 gates 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 which hear the Voice of God
proclaim the world as sinless. Ours the minds
which 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.

WHAT IS A MIRACLE?
<AUDIO><VIDEO>>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

A miracle is a correction. It
does not create, nor really change at all.
It merely looks on devastation, and
reminds the mind that what it sees is false.
It undoes error, but does not attempt
to go beyond perception, nor exceed
the function of forgiveness. Thus it stays
within time's limits. Yet it paves the way
for the return of timelessness and love's
awakening, for fear must slip away
under the gentle remedy it gives.

A miracle contains the gift of grace,
for it is given and received as one.
And thus it illustrates the law of truth
the world does not obey, because it fails
entirely to understand its ways.
A miracle inverts perception, which
was upside-down before, and thus it ends
the strange distortions that were manifest.
Now is perception open to the truth.
Now is forgiveness fully justified.

Forgiveness is the home of miracles.
The eyes of Christ delivers them to all
they look upon in mercy and in love.
Perception stands corrected in His sight,
and what was meant to curse has come to bless.
Each lily of forgiveness offers all
the world the silent miracle of love.
And each is laid before the Word of God
upon the universal altar to
Creator and creation, in the Light
of perfect purity and endless peace.

The miracle is taken first on faith,
because to ask for it implies the mind
has been made ready to conceive of what
it cannot see and does not understand.
Yet faith will bring its witnesses, to show
that what it rested on is really there.
And thus the miracle will justify your faith
in it, and show it rested on a world
more real than what you saw before;
a world redeemed from what you thought you saw.

Miracles fall like drops of healing rain
from Heaven on a dry and dusty world,
where starved and thirsty creatures came to die.
Now have they water. Now the world is green.
And everywhere the signs of life spring up,
to show that what is born can never die,
for what has life has immortality.

WHAT IS THE EGO?
<AUDIO><VIDEO><READ ON-LINE>>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

The ego is idolatry; the sign
of limited and separated self,
born in a body, doomed to suffer and
to end its life in death. It is the will
that sees the Will of God as enemy,
and takes a form in which It is denied.
The ego is the "proof" that strength is weak
and love is fearful, life is really death,
and what opposes God alone is true.

The ego is insane. In fear it stands
beyond the Everywhere, apart from All,
in separation from the Infinite.
In its insanity, it thinks it has
become a victor over God Himself,
and in its terrible autonomy
it "sees" the Will of God has been destroyed.
It dreams of punishment, and trembles at
the figures in its dreams, its "enemies"
who seek to murder it before it can
ensure its safety by attacking them.

The Son of God is egoless. What can
he know of madness and the death of God,
when he abides in Him? What can he know
of sorrow and of suffering, when he
lives in eternal joy? What can he know
of fear and punishment, of sin and guilt,
of hatred and attack, when all there is
surrounding him is everlasting peace,
forever conflict-free and undisturbed,
in deepest silence and tranquility?

To know Reality is not to know
the ego and its thoughts, its works, its acts,
its laws and its beliefs, its dreams, its hopes,
its plans for its salvation, and the cost
belief in it entails. In suffering,
the price for faith in it is so immense
that crucifixion of the Son of God
is offered daily at its darkened shrine,
and blood must flow before the altar where
its sickly followers prepare to die.

Yet will one lily of forgiveness change
the darkness into light; the altar to
illusions to the shrine of Life Itself.
And peace will be restored forever to
the holy minds which God created as
His Son, His dwelling-place, His joy, His love,
completely His, completely one with Him.

WHAT IS CREATION?
<AUDIO><VIDEO><READ ON-LINE>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

Creation is the sum of all God's Thoughts,
in number infinite, and everywhere
without all limit. Only Love creates,
and only like Itself. There was no time
when all that It created was not there.
Nor will there be a time when anything
that It created suffers any change.
Forever and forever are God's Thoughts
exactly as They were and as They are,
unchanged through time and after time is done.

God's Thoughts are given all the power that
Their own Creator has. For He would add
to Love by Its extension. Thus His Son
shares in creation, and must therefore share
in power to create. What God has willed
to be forever one will still be one
when time is over; and will not be changed
throughout the course of time, remaining as
it was before the thought of time began.

Creation is the opposite of all
illusions, for Creation is the truth.
Creation is the holy Son of God,
for in Creation is His Will complete
in every aspect, making every part
container of the whole. Its oneness is
forever guaranteed inviolate;
forever held within His holy Will
beyond all possibility of harm,
of separation, imperfection and
of any spot upon its sinlessness.

We are creation; we the Sons of God.
We seem to be discrete and unaware
of our eternal unity with Him.
Yet back of all our doubts, past all our fears,
there still is certainty. For Love remains
with all Its Thoughts, Its sureness being Theirs.
God's memory is in our holy minds,
which know their oneness, and their unity
with their Creator. Let our function be
only to let this memory return,
only to let God's Will be done on earth,
only to be restored to sanity,
and to be but as God created us.

Our Father calls to us. We hear His Voice,
and we forgive creation in the Name
of its Creator, Holiness Itself,
Whose holiness His own creation shares;
Whose holiness is still a part of us

WHAT IS THE LAST JUDGMENT?
<AUDIO><VIDEO>>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

Christ's Second Coming gives the Son of God
the gift to hear the Voice for God proclaim
that what is false is false, and what is true
has never changed. And this the judgment is
in which perception ends. At first you see
a world which has accepted this as true,
projected from a now corrected mind.
And with this holy sight, perception gives
a silent blessing and then disappears,
its goal accomplished and its mission done.

The final judgment on the world contains
no condemnation. For it sees the world
as totally forgiven, without sin,
and wholly purposeless. Without a cause,
and now without a function in Christ's sight,
it merely slips away to nothingness.
There it was born, and there it ends as well.
And all the figures in the dream in which
the world began go with it. Bodies now
are useless, and will therefore fade away,
because the Son of God is limitless.

You who believed that Gods last judgment would
condemn the world to hell along with you,
accept this holy truth: God's judgment is
the gift of the Correction He bestowed
on all your errors, freeing you from them,
and all effects they ever seemed to have
To fear His saving grace is but to fear
complete release from suffering, return
to peace, security and happiness,
and union with your own Identity.

God's final judgment is as merciful.
as every step in His appointed plan
to save His Son, and call Him to return
to the eternal peace He shares with him.
Be not afraid of Love. For It alone
can heal all sorrow, wipe away all tears,
and gently waken from his dreams of pain
the Son whom God acknowledges as His.
Be not afraid of this. Salvation asks
you give it welcome. And the world awaits
your glad acceptance, which will set it free.

This is God's final judgment: "You are still
My holy Son, forever innocent,
forever loving and forever loved,
as limitless as Your Creator, and
completely changeless and forever pure.
Therefore awaken and return to Me.
I am Your Father, and you are My Son.

WHAT IS THE SECOND COMING?
<AUDIO>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

Christ's Second Coming, which is sure as God,
is merely the correction of mistakes
and the return of sanity. It is
a part of the condition which restores
the never-lost, and re-establishes
what is forever and forever true.
It is the invitation to God's Word
to take illusion's place; the willingness
to let forgiveness rest upon all things
without exceptions and without reserve.

It is this all-inclusive nature of
Christ's Second Coming that permits it to
embrace the world, and hold you safe within
its gentle advent, which encompasses
all living things with you. There is no end
to the release the Second Coming brings,
as God's creation must be limitless.
Forgiveness lights the Second Coming's way
because it shines on everyone as well.
*And thus is oneness recognized at last.
--*this line not in Notes--

The Second Coming ends the lessons which
the Holy Spirit teaches, making way
for the Last Judgment, in which learning ends
in one last summary which will extend
beyond itself, and reaching up to God.
The Second Coming is the time in which
all minds are given to the hands of Christ,
to be returned to Spirit in the Name
of true creation and the Will of God.

The Second Coming is the one event
in time which time itself can not affect.
For everyone who ever came to die,
or yet will come or who is present now,
is equally released from what he made.
In this equality is Christ restored
as one Identity, in Which all Sons
of God acknowledge that they all are one.
And God the Father smiles upon His Son,
His one creation and His only joy.

Pray that this Second Coming will be soon,
but do not rest with that. It needs your eyes
and ears and hands and feet. It needs your voice,
and most of all it needs your willingness.
Let us rejoice that we can do God's Will,
and join together in Its holy light.
Behold, the Son of God is one in us,
and we can reach our Father's Love through him.

WHAT IS THE REAL WORLD?
<AUDIO> <VIDEO><COMMENTARY>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

The real world is a symbol, like the rest
of what perception offers. Yet it stands
for what is opposite to what you made.
Your world is seen through eyes of fear, and brings
the witnesses of terror to your mind.
The real world cannot be perceived except
through eyes forgiveness blesses, so they see
a world where terror is impossible,
and witnesses to fear can not be found.

The real world holds a counterpart for each
unhappy thought reflected in your world;
a sure correction for the sights of fear
and sounds of battle which your world contains.
The real world shows a world seen differently,
through quiet eyes and with a mind at peace.
Nothing but rest is here. There are no cries
of pain and sorrow heard, for nothing here
remains outside forgiveness. And the sights
are gentle. Only happy sights and sounds
can reach the mind that has forgiven itself.

What need has such a mind for thoughts of death,
attack and murder? What can it perceive
surrounding it but safety, love and joy?
What is there it would choose to be condemned,
and what is there that it would judge against?
The world it sees arises from a mind
at peace within itself. No danger lurks
in anything it sees, for it is kind
and only kindness does it look upon.

The real world is the symbol that the dream
of sin and guilt is over, and God's Son
no longer sleeps. His waking eyes perceive
the sure reflection of his Father's Love;
the certain promise that he is redeemed.
The real world signifies the end of time,
for this perception makes time purposeless.

The Holy Spirit has no need of time
when it has served His purpose. Now He waits
but that one instant more for God to take
His final step, and time has disappeared,
taking perception with it as it goes,
and leaving but the Truth to be Itself.
That instant is our goal, for it contains
the memory of God. And as we look
upon a world forgiven, it is He
Who calls to us and comes to take us home,
reminding us of our Identity
Which our forgiveness has restored to us.

WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?
<AUDIO> <VIDEO>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

The Holy Spirit mediates between
Illusions and the truth. As He must bridge
the gap between reality and dreams,
perception leads to knowledge through the grace
that God has given Him, to be His gift
to everyone who turns to Him for truth.
Across the bridge that He provides, are dreams
all carried to the truth, to be dispelled
before the light of knowledge. There are sights
and sounds forever laid aside. And where
they were perceived before, forgiveness has
made possible perception's tranquil end.

The goal the Holy Spirit's teaching sets
is just this end of dreams. For sights and sounds
must be translated from the witnesses
of fear to those of love. And when this is
entirely accomplished, learning has
achieved the only goal it has in truth.
For learning, as the Holy Spirit guides
it to the outcome He perceives for it,
becomes the means to go beyond itself,
to be replaced by the Eternal Truth.

If you but knew how much your Father yearns
to have you recognize your sinlessness,
you would not let His Voice appeal in vain,
nor turn away from His replacement for
the fearful images and dreams you made.
The Holy Spirit understands the means
you made, by which you would attain what is
forever unattainable. And if
you offer them to Him, He will employ
the means you made for exile to restore
your mind to where it truly is at home.

From knowledge, where He has been placed by God,
the Holy Spirit calls to you, to let
forgiveness rest upon your dreams, and be
restored to sanity and peace of mind.
Without forgiveness will your dreams remain
to terrify you. And the memory
of all your Father's Love will not return
to signify the end of dreams has come.

Accept your Father's gift. It is a call
from Love to Love, that It be but Itself.
The Holy Spirit is His gift, by Which
the quietness of Heaven is restored
to God's beloved Son. Would you refuse
to take the function of completing God,
when all He wills is that you be complete?

WHAT IS THE CHRIST?
<AUDIO> <VIDEO>
Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio  

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

Christ is God's Son as He created him.
He is the Self we share, uniting us
with one another, and with God as well.
He is the Thought Which still abides within
the Mind Which is His Source. He has not left
His holy home, nor lost the innocence
in which He was created. He abides
unchanged forever in the Mind of God.

He is the link that keeps you one with God,
and guarantees that separation is
no more than an illusion of despair,
for hope forever will abide in Him.
Your mind is part of His, and His of yours.
He is the part in Which God's Answer lies;
where all decisions are already made,
and dreams are over. He remains untouched
by anything the body's eyes perceive.
For though in Him His Father placed the means
for your salvation, yet does He remain
the Self Who, like His Father, knows no sin.

Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home
in God alone, does Christ remain at peace,
within the Heaven of your holy mind.
This is the only part of you that has
reality in truth. The rest is dreams.
Yet will these dreams be given unto Christ,
to fade before His glory, and reveal
your holy Self, the Christ, to you at last.

The Holy Spirit reaches from the Christ
in you to all your dreams, and bids them come
to Him to be translated into truth.
He will exchange them for the final dream
which God appointed as the end of dreams.
For when forgiveness rests upon the world
and peace has come to every Son of God,
what could remain to keep things separate,
for what remains to see except Christ's face?

And how long can this holy face be seen,
when it is but the symbol that the time
for learning now is over, and the goal
of the Atonement has been reached at last?
So therefore let us seek to find Christ's face,
and look on nothing else. As we behold
His glory, will we know we have no need
of learning or perception or of time,
or anything except the holy Self,
the Christ Whom God created as His Son.

WHAT IS THE BODY?
<AUDIO> <VIDEO>

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

The body is a fence the Son of God
imagines he has built to separate
parts of his Self from other parts. It is
within this fence he thinks he lives, to die
as it decays and crumbles. For within
this fence he thinks that he is safe from love.
Identifying with <its safety>, he
regards himself as <what his safety is>.
How else could he be certain he remains
within the body, keeping love outside?

The body will not stay. Yet this he sees
as double safety. For the Son of God's
impermanence is "proof" his fences work,
and do the task his mind [assigned] to them.
For if his oneness still remained untouched,
who could attack and who could be attacked?
Who could be victor? Who could be his prey?
Who could be victim? Who the murderer?
And if he did not die, what proof is there
that God's eternal Son [has] been destroyed?

The body is a dream. Like other dreams,
it sometimes seems to picture happiness,
but can quite suddenly revert to fear,
where every dream is born. For only love
creates in truth, and truth can never fear.
Made to be fearful, must the body serve
the purpose given it. But we can change
the purpose [which] the body will obey
by changing what we think that it is for.

The body is the means by which God's Son
returns to sanity. Though it was made
to fence him into hell without escape,
yet has the goal of Heaven been exchanged
for the pursuit of hell. The Son of God
extends his hand to reach his brother, and
to help him walk along the road with him.
Now is the body holy. Now it serves
to heal the mind that it was made to kill.

You will identify with what you think
will make you safe. Whatever it may be,
you will believe that it is one with you.
Your safety lies in truth and not in lies.
Love is your safety. Fear does not exist.
Identify with love, and you are safe.

WHAT IS THE WORLD?
<AUDIO> <VIDEO><COMMENTARY>

The world is false perception. It is born
of error, and it has not left its source.
It will remain no longer than the thought
that gave it birth is cherished. When the thought
of separation has been changed to one
of true forgiveness, will the world be seen
in quite another light; and one that leads
to truth, where all the world must disappear,
and all its errors vanish. Now its source
has gone, and its effects are gone as well.

The world was made as an attack on God.
It symbolizes fear. And what is fear
except love's absence? Thus the world was meant
to be a place where God could enter not,
and where His Son could be apart from Him.
Here was perception born, for knowledge could
not cause such insane thoughts. But eyes deceive,
and ears hear falsely. Now mistakes become
quite possible, for certainty has gone.

The mechanisms of illusion have
been born instead. And now they go to find
what has been given them to seek. Their aim
is to fulfill the purpose which the world
was made to witness and make real. They see
in its illusions but a solid base
where truth exists, upheld apart from lies.
Yet everything which they report is but
illusion which is kept apart from truth.

As sight was made to lead away from truth,
it can be redirected. Sounds become
the call of God. And all perception can
be given a new purpose, by the One
Whom God appointed Saviour to the world.
Follow His light, and see the world as He
beholds it. Hear His Voice alone in all
that speaks to you. And let Him give you peace
and certainty, which you have thrown away,
but Heaven has preserved for you in Him.

Let us not rest content until the world
has joined our changed perception. Let us not
be satisfied until forgiveness has
been made complete. And let us not attempt
to change our function. We must save the world.
For we who made it must behold it through
the eyes of Christ, that what was made to die
can be restored to everlasting life.

WHAT IS SALVATION?
<AUDIO> <VIDEO>

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT ~ October 1, 1970

Salvation is a promise, made by God,
that you would find your way to Him at last.
It cannot but be kept. It guarantees
that time will have an end, and all the thoughts
that have been born in time will end as well.
God's Word is given every mind that thinks
that it has separate thoughts, and will replace
these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.

The Thought of peace was given to God's Son
the instant that his mind had thought of war.
There was no need for such a Thought before,
for peace was given without opposite,
and merely was. But when the mind is split,
there is a need of healing. So the Thought
Which has the power to heal the split became
a part of every fragment of the mind
which still was one, but failed to recognize
its oneness. Now it did not know itself,
and thought its own identity was lost.

Salvation is undoing in the sense
that it does nothing, failing to support
the world of dreams and malice. Thus it lets
illusions go. By not supporting them,
it merely lets them quietly go down
to dust. And what they hid is now revealed;
an altar to the holy Name of God,
whereon His Word is written, with the gifts
of your forgiveness laid before It, and
the memory of God not far behind.

Let us come daily to this holy place,
and spend a while together. Here we share
our final dream. It is a dream in which
there is no sorrow, for it holds a hint
of all the glory given us by God.
The grass is pushing through the soil, the trees
are budding now, and birds have come to live
within their branches. Earth is being born
again in new perception. Night has gone,
and we have come together in the light.

From here we give salvation to the world,
for it is here salvation was received.
The song of our rejoicing is the call
to all the world that freedom is returned,
that time is almost over, and God's Son
has but an instant more to wait until
his Father is remembered, dreams are done,
eternity has shined away the world,
and only Heaven now exists at all

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT ~ September 16, 1970

Words will mean little now. We use them but
as guides on which we do not now depend,
for now we seek direct experience
of truth alone. The lessons which remain
are merely introductions to your times
in which you leave the world of pain and go,
and enter into peace. Now we begin
to reach the goal this course has set, and find
the end towards which our practicing was geared.

Now we attempt to let the exercise
be merely a beginning. For we wait
in quiet expectation for our God
and Father. He has promised He will take
the final step Himself. And we are sure
His promises are kept. We have come far
along the road. And now we wait for Him.
We will continue spending time with Him
each morning and at night, as long as makes
us happy. We will not consider time
a matter of duration now. We use
as much as we will need for the result
that we desire. Nor will we forget
our hourly remembrance, in between
calling to God when we have need of Him
as we are tempted to forget our goal.

We will continue with a central thought
for all the days to come. And we will use
that thought to introduce our times of rest,
and calm our minds at need. Yet we will not
content ourselves with simple practicing
in the remaining holy instants which
conclude the year that we have given God.
We say some simple words of welcome, and
expect our Father to reveal Himself
as He has promised. We have called on Him,
and He has promised that His Son will not
remain unanswered when he calls on Him.

Now do we come to Him with but His Word
upon our minds and hearts. And wait for Him
to take the step to us that He has told
us, through His Voice, He would not fail to take
when we invited Him. He has not left
His Son in all his madness, nor betrayed
His trust in him. Has not His faithfulness
earned Him the invitation that He seeks
to make you happy? We will offer it,
and it will be accepted. So our times
with Him will now be spent. We say the words
of invitation that His Voice suggests,
and then we wait for Him to come to us.

Now is the time of prophesy fulfilled.
Now are all ancient promises upheld
and fully kept. No step remains for time
to separate from its accomplishment.
For now we cannot fail. Sit silently
and wait upon your Father. He has willed
to come to you when you had recognized
it is your will He do so. And you could
have never come this far unless you saw,
however dimly, that it is your will.

I am so close to you we cannot fail.
Father, we give these holy times to You
in gratitude to Him Who taught us how
to leave the world of sorrow, in exchange
for its replacement given us by You.
We look not backward now. We look ahead,
and fix our eyes upon the journey's end.
Accept these little gifts of thanks from us,
as through Christ's vision we behold a world
beyond the world we made, and take that world
to be the full replacement for our own.

And now we wait in silence, unafraid,
and certain of Your coming. We have sought
to find our way by following the Guide
You sent to us. We did not know the way,
but You did not forget us. And we know
that You will not forget us now. We ask
but that Your ancient promises be kept
which are Your Will to keep. We will with You
in asking this. The Father and the Son,
Whose holy Will created all that is,
can fail in nothing. In this certainty,
we undertake these last few steps to You,
and rest in confidence upon Your Love,
Which will not fail Your Son, who called to You.

And so we start upon the final part
of this one holy year, which we have spent
together in the search for truth and God,
Who is its its one Creator. We have found
the way He chose for us, and made the choice
to follow it as He would have us go.
His hand has held us up. His Thoughts have lit
the darkness of our minds. His Love has called
to us unceasingly since time began.

We had a wish that God would fail to have
the Son whom He created in Himself.
We wanted God to change Himself, and be
what we would make of Him. And we believed
that our insane desires were the truth.
Now we are glad that this is all undone,
and we no longer think illusions true.
The memory of God is shimmering
across the wide horizons of our minds.
A moment more, and It will rise again.
A moment more, and we who are God's Son
are safely home, where He would have us be.

Now is the need for practice almost done.
For in this final section we will come
to understand that we need only call
to God, and all temptations disappear.
Instead of words, we need but feel His Love.
Instead of prayers, we need but call His Name.
Instead of judging, we need but be still
and let all things be healed. We will accept
the way God's plan will end, as we received
the way it started. Now is it complete.
This year has brought us to eternity.

One further use for words we still retain.
From time to time, instructions on a theme
of special relevance will intersperse
our daily lessons and the periods
of wordless, deep experience which should
come afterwards. These special thoughts should be
reviewed each day, each one of them to be
continued till the next is given you.
They should be slowly read and thought about
a little while, preceding one of the
holy and blessed instants in the day.
We give the first of these instructions now.

WHAT IS FORGIVENESS?
<AUDIO> <VIDEO> <GUIDANCE>

Sept. 21, 1970

Forgiveness recognizes what you thought
your brother did to you has not occurred.
It does not pardon sins, and make them real.
It sees there was no sin. And in this view
are all your sins forgiven. What is sin
except a false idea of God's Son?
Forgiveness merely sees its falsity,
and therefore lets it go. What then is free
to take its place is now the Will of God.

An unforgiving thought is one which makes
a judgment that it will not raise to doubt,
although it is untrue. The mind is closed,
and will not be released. The thought protects
projection, tightening its chains, so that
distortions are more veiled and more obscure;
less easily accessible to doubt,
and further kept from reason. What can come
between a fixed projection and the aim
that it has chosen as its needed goal?

An unforgiving thought does many things.
In frantic action it pursues its goal,
twisting and overturning what it sees
as interfering with its chosen path.
Distortion is its purpose, and the means
by which it would accomplish it as well.
It sets about its furious attempts
to smash reality without concern
for anything that would appear to pose
a contradiction to its point of view.

Forgiveness, on the other hand, is still
and quietly does nothing. It offends
no aspect of reality, nor seeks
to twist it to appearance that it likes.
It merely looks and waits and judges not.
He who would not forgive must judge, for he
must justify his failure to forgive.
But he who would forgive himself must learn
to welcome truth exactly as it is.

Do nothing, then, and let forgiveness show
you what to do through Him Who is your Guide,
your Saviour and Defender, strong in hope
and certain of your ultimate success.
He has forgiven you already, for
such is His function, given Him by God.
Now must you share His function, and forgive
whom He has saved, whose sinlessness He sees,
and whom He honors as the Son of God.

REVIEW V
<AUDIO><VIDEO>

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

Now we review again. This time we are
ready to give more effort and more time
to what we undertake. We recognize
we are preparing for another phase
of understanding. We would take this step
completely that we may go on again
more certain, more sincere, with faith upheld
more surely. Our footsteps have not been
unwavering, and doubts have made us walk
uncertainly and slowly on the road
this course sets forth. But now we hasten on,
for we approach a greater certainty,
a firmer purpose and a surer goal.


"Steady our feet, our Father; let our doubts
be quiet and our holy minds be still,
and speak to us. We have no words to give
to You. We would but listen to Your Word
and make it ours. Lead our practicing
as does a father lead a little child
along a way he does not understand.
Yet does he follow, sure that he is safe
because his father leads the way for him.


So do we bring our practicing to You.
And if we stumble, You will raise us up.
If we forget the way, we count upon
Your sure remembering. We wander off,
but You will not forget to call us back.
Quicken our footsteps now, that we may walk
more certainly and quickly unto You.
And we accept the Word You offer us
to unify our practicing as we
review the thoughts that You have given us."


This is the thought which should precede the thoughts
that we review. Each one but clarifies
some aspect of this thought, or helps it be
more meaningful, more personal and true,
and more descriptive of the holy Self
we share and now prepare to know again:

"God is but love, and therefore so am I."

This Self alone knows love. This Self alone
is perfectly consistent in Its thoughts;
knows Its Creator, understands Itself,
is perfect in Its knowledge and Its love,
and never changes from Its constant state
of union with Its Father and Itself.


And it is This that waits to meet us at
the journey's ending. Every step we take
brings us a little nearer. This review
will shorten time immeasurably, if
we keep in mind that This remains our goal,
and as we practice it is This to which
we are approaching. Let us raise our hearts
from dust to life as we remember This
is promised us, and that this course was sent
to open up the path of light to us,
and teach us, step by step, how to return
to the Eternal Self we think we lost.


I take the journey with you. For I share
your doubts and fears a little while, that you
may come to me who recognize the road
by which all doubts and fears are overcome.
We walk together. I must understand
uncertainty and pain, although I know
they have no meaning. Yet a Saviour must
remain with those he teaches, seeing what
they see, but still retaining in his mind
the way which led him out, and now will lead
you out with him. God's Son is crucified
until you walk along the road with me.


My resurrection comes again each time
I lead a brother safely to the place
at which the journey ends and is forgot.
I am renewed each time a brother learns
there is a way from misery and pain.
I am reborn each time a brother's mind
turns to the light in him and looks for me.
I have forgotten no-one. Help me now
to lead you back to where your journey was
begun, and make another choice with me.


Release me as you practice once again
the thoughts I brought to you from Him Who sees
your bitter need, and knows the answer God
has given Him. Together we review
these thoughts. Together we devote our time
and effort to them. And together we
will teach them to our brothers. God would not
have Heaven incomplete. It waits for you,
as I do. I am incomplete without
your part in me. And as I am made whole,
we go together to our ancient home,
prepared for us before time was and kept
unchanged by time, immaculate and safe,
as it will be at last, when time is done.


Let this review be then your gift to me.
For this alone I need; that you will hear
the words I speak, and give them to the world.
You are my voice, my eyes, my feet, my hands,
through which I save the world. The Self from Which
I call to you is but your Own. To Him
we go together. Take your brother's hand,
for this is not a way we walk alone.
In him I walk with you and you with me.
Our Father wills His Son be One with Him.
What lives but must not then be one with you?


Let this review become a time in which
we share a new experience for you,
yet one as old as time and older still.
Hallowed your name. Your glory undefiled
forever. And your wholeness now complete,
as God established it. You are His Son,
completing His extension in your own.
We practice but an ancient truth we knew
before illusion seemed to claim the world.
And we remind the world that it is free
of all illusion every time we say,


"God is but love, and therefore so am I."


With this we start each day of our review.
With this we start and end each period
of practice time. And with this thought we sleep,
to waken once again with these same words
upon our tongue to greet another day.
No thought that we review but we surround
with it, and use the thoughts to hold it up
before our minds and keep it clear in our
rememberance throughout the day. And thus
when we have finished this review, we will
have recognized the words we speak are true.


Yet are the words but aids, and to be used,
except at the beginning and the end
of practice periods, but to recall
the mind, as needed, to its purpose. We
place faith in the experience that comes
from practice, not the means we use. We wait
for the experience, and recognize
that it is only here conviction lies.
We use the words, and try and try again
to go beyond them to their meaning, which
is far beyond their sound. The sound grows dim
and disappears, as we approach the Source
of meaning. It is here that we find rest. "

.REVIEW IV
<AUDIO><VIDEO>
Now we review again, this time aware
   we are preparing for the second part
   of learning how the truth can be applied.
   Today we will begin to concentrate
   on readiness for what will follow next.
   Such is our aim for this review and for
   the lessons following. Thus we review
   the recent lessons and their central thoughts
   in such a way as will facilitate
   the readiness which we would now achieve.|
 
   There is a central theme which unifies
   each step in the review we undertake.
   It can be simply stated in these words:
 
   "My mind holds only what I think with God."
 
   This is a fact. And represents the truth
   of What you are and What your Father is.
   It is this Thought by Which the Father gave
   creation to the Son, establishing
   the Son as co-creator with Himself.
   It is this Thought Which fully guarantees
   salvation to the Son. For in his mind
   no thoughts can dwell but those his Father shares.
   Lack of forgiveness blocks this Thought from his
   awareness. Yet It is forever true.|
 
   Let us begin our preparation with
   some understanding of the many forms
   in which the lack of true forgiveness may
   be carefully concealed. Because they are
   illusions, they are not perceived to be
   but what they are; defenses which protect
   your unforgiving thoughts from being seen
   and recognized. Their purpose is to show
   you something else, and hold correction off
   through self-deception made to take its place.|
 
   And yet your mind holds only what you think
   with God. Your self-deceptions cannot take
   the place of truth. No more than can a child
   who throws a stick into the ocean change
   the coming in and going out of tides,
   the warming of the water by the sun,
   the silver of the moon on it by night.
   So do we start each practice period
   in this review with readying our mind
   to understand the lessons that we read
   and see the meaning which they offer us.|
 
   Begin each day with time devoted to
   the preparation of your mind to learn
   what each idea you will review that day
   can offer you in freedom and in peace.
   Open your mind and clear it of all thoughts
   that would deceive, and let this Thought alone
   engage it fully and remove the rest:
 
   "My mind holds only what I think with God."
 
   Five minutes with this Thought will be enough
   to set the day along the lines which God
   appointed, and to place His Mind in charge
   of all the thoughts you will receive that day.|
   They will not come from you alone, for they
   will all be shared with Him. And so each one
   will bring the message of His Love to you,
   returning messages of yours to Him.
   So will communion with the Lord of Hosts
   be yours, as He Himself has willed it be.
   And as His Own completion joins with Him,
   so will He join with you who are complete
   as you unite with Him and He with you.|
 
   After your preparation, merely read
   each of the two ideas assigned to you
   to be reviewed that day. Then close your eyes
   and say them slowly to yourself. There is
   no hurry now, for you are using time
   for its intended purpose. Let each word
   shine with the meaning God has given it
   as it was given to you through His Voice.
   Let each idea that you review today
   give you the gift which He has laid in it
   for you to have of Him. And we will use
   no format for our practicing but this:|
 
   Each hour of the day, bring to your mind
   the Thought with which the day began, and spend
   a quiet moment with It. Then repeat
   the two ideas you practice for the day
   unhurriedly, with time enough to see
   the gifts which they contain for you, and let
   them be received where they were meant to be.|
   We add no other thoughts, but let them be
   the messages they are. We need no more
   than that to give us happiness and rest
   and endless quiet, perfect certainty,
   and all our Father wills that we receive
   as the inheritance we have of Him.
 
   Each day of practicing, as we review,
   we close as we began, repeating first
   the Thought that made the day a special time
   of blessing and of happiness for us;
   and through our faithfulness restored the world
   from darkness to the light, from grief to joy,
   from pain to peace, from sin to holiness.|
   God offers thanks to you who practice thus
   the keeping of His Word. And as you give
   your mind to the ideas for the day
   again before you sleep, His gratitude
   surrounds you with the peace wherein He willed
   you be forever, and are learning now
   to claim again as your inheritance.

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

   Our third review begins today. We will
   review two of the last twenty 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 just 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. 

   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  goal.   

   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
   the camouflage for your unwillingness. 

   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 practicing
   can offer everything to you. And so
   accept their offering, and be at peace. 

   The format you should use for these reviews
   is this: Devote five minutes twice a day,
   or longer if you would prefer, to
   considering the thoughts that are assigned.
   Read over the ideas and comments which
   are written first in each day's exercise.
   And then begin to think about them while
   letting your mind relate them to your needs,
   your seeming problems and all your concerns. 

   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 direction at
   the start, and then lean back in quiet faith,
   and let the mind employ the thoughts you gave
   as they were given you for it to use. 

   You have been given them in perfect trust;
   in perfect confidence that you would use
   them well; in perfect faith that you would see
   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. Since it has His trust,
   His means must surely merit yours as well. 

   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. 

   The exercises to be done throughout
   the day are equally important, and
   perhaps of even greater value. You
   have been inclined to practice only at
   appointed times and then go on your way
   to other things, without applying what
   you learned to them. As a result, you have
   gained little reinforcement, and have not
   given it the opportunity to prove
   how great are its potential gifts to you. 

   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. 

   Repeat it, then 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 as well.
   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. 

   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.  

   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
   with firmer footsteps and with stronger faith. 

   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.

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

1We are now ready for another review. We will begin where our last review left off and cover two ideas each day. The earlier part of each day will be devoted to one of these ideas, and the latter part of the day to the other. We will have one longer exercise period and frequent shorter ones in which we practice each of them.  

2The longer practice periods will follow this general form: take about 15 minutes for each of them, and begin by thinking about the idea and the comments which are included in the assignments. Devote about three or four minutes to reading them over slowly, several times if you wish, and then close your eyes and listen. Repeat the first phase if you find your mind wandering, but try to spend the major part of the practice period listening quietly but attentively.  

3There is a message waiting for you. Be confident that you will receive it. Remember that it belongs to you and that you want it. Do not allow your intent to waver in the face of distracting thoughts. Realize that, whatever form they take, they have no meaning and no power. Replace them with your determination to succeed. Do not forget that your will has power over all fantasies and dreams. Trust it to see you through and carry you beyond them all. 

4Regard these practice periods as dedications to the way, the truth, and the life. Refuse to be side-tracked into detours, illusions, and thoughts of death. You are dedicated to salvation. Be determined each day not to leave your function unfulfilled.  

5Reaffirm your determination in the shorter practice periods as well, using the original form of the idea for general application and a more specific form when needed. Some specific forms will be included in the comments. These, however, are merely suggestions. It is not the particular words you use that matter.

ORIGINAL HAND SCRIPT

1 Beginning with today, we will have a series of review periods. Each of them will cover five of the ideas already presented, starting with the first and ending with the fiftieth. There will be a few short comments after each of the ideas which you should consider in your review. In the practice periods, the exercises should be done as follows:

2 Begin the day by reading the five ideas, with the comments included. Thereafter, it is not necessary to follow any particular order in considering them, though each one should be practiced at least once. Devote two minutes or more to each practice period, thinking about the idea and the related comments. Do this as often as possible during the day. If any one of the five ideas appeals to you more than the others, concentrate on that one. At the end of the day, however, be sure to review all of them once more.

3 It is not necessary to cover the comments that follow each idea literally or thoroughly in the practice periods. Rather, try merely to emphasize the central point and think about it as part of your review of the idea to which it relates.

4 The review exercises should be done with your eyes closed and when you are alone in a quiet place if possible. This is emphasized particularly for reviews at your stage of learning. It will be necessary, however, that you learn to require no special settings in which to apply what you have learned. You will need it most in situations which appear to be upsetting, rather than in those which already seem to be calm and quiet.

5 The purpose of your learning is to enable you to bring the quiet with you and to heal distress and turmoil. This is not done by avoiding them and seeking a haven of isolation for yourself. You will yet learn that peace is part of you and requires only that you be there to embrace any situation in which you are. And finally you will learn that there is no limit to where you are, so that your peace is everywhere, as you are.

6 You will note that for review purposes the ideas are not always given in quite their original form of statement. Use them as they are given here. It is not necessary to return to the original statements nor to apply the ideas as was suggested then. We are now emphasizing the relationships among the first fifty of the ideas we have covered and the cohesiveness of the thought system to which they are leading you.

1 A theoretical foundation such as the text is necessary as a background to make these exercises meaningful. Yet it is the exercises which will make the goal possible. An untrained mind can accomplish nothing. It is the purpose of these exercises to train the mind to think along the lines which the course sets forth.

2 The exercises are very simple. They do not require more than a few minutes, and it does not matter where or when you do them. They need no preparation. They are numbered, running from 1 to 365. The training period is one year. Do not undertake more than one exercise a day.

3 The purpose of these exercises is to train the mind to a different perception of everything in the world. The workbook is divided into two sections, the first dealing with the undoing of what you see now and the second with the restoration of sight. It is recommended that each exercise be repeated several times a day, preferably in a different place each time and, if possible, in every situation in which you spend any long period of time. The purpose is to train the mind to generalize the lessons, so that you will understand that each of them is as applicable to one situation as it is to another.

4 Unless specified to the contrary, the exercise should be practiced with the eyes open, since the aim is to learn how to see. The only rule that should be followed throughout is to practice the exercises with great specificity. Each one applies to every situation in which you find yourself and to everything you see in it. Each day's exercises are planned around one central idea, the exercises themselves consisting of applying that idea to as many specifics as possible. Be sure that you do not decide that there are some things you see to which the idea for the day is inapplicable. The aim of the exercises will always be to increase the application of the idea to everything. This will not require effort. Only be sure that you make no exceptions in applying the idea.

5 Some of the ideas you will find hard to believe, and others will seem quite startling. It does not matter. You are merely asked to apply them to what you see. You are not asked to judge them, nor even to believe them. You are asked only to use them. It is their use which will give them meaning to you, and show you they are true. Remember only this-you need not believe them, you need not accept them, and you need not welcome them. Some of them you may actively resist. None of this will matter nor decrease their efficacy. But allow yourself to make no exceptions in applying the ideas the exercises contain. Whatever your reactions to the ideas may be, use them. Nothing more than this is required.
