has no direction. Time seems to go in one direction,
but when you reach its end it will roll up like
a long carpet which has spread along the past
behind you and will disappear. As long as you
believe the Son of God is guilty, you will walk
along this carpet, believing that it leads to
death. And the journey will seem long and cruel
and senseless, for so it is.
journey which the Son of God has set himself
is foolish indeed, but the journey on which
his Father sets him is one of release and joy.
The Father is not cruel, and His Son cannot
hurt himself. The retaliation he fears and which
he sees will never touch him, for although he
believes in it, the Holy Spirit knows it is
not true. The
Holy Spirit stands at the end of time, where
you must be because He is with you. He has always
undone everything unworthy of the Son of God,
for such was His mission, given Him by God.
And what God gives has always been.

has always sought his guiltlessness, and he
has found it. For everyone is seeking to escape
from the prison he has made, and the way to
find release is not denied him. Being IN him,
he HAS found it. When he finds it is only a
matter of time, and time is but an illusion.
For the Son of God is guiltless now, and the
brightness of his purity shines untouched forever
in God’s Mind.

guiltlessness is in the Mind of his Father,
and protects him forever.
you have accepted
the Atonement for yourselves, you will realize
that there is no guilt in God’s Son. And
only as you look upon him as guiltless can you
understand his oneness. For the idea of guilt
brings a belief in condemnation of one by another,
projecting separation in place of unity.
can condemn only yourself, and by so doing you
cannot know that you are God’s Son. You
have denied the condition of his Being, which
is his perfect blamelessness. Out of Love he
was created, and in Love he abides. Goodness
and mercy have always followed him, for he has
always extended the Love of his Father.
As you perceive the holy companions who travel
with you, you will realize that there is no
journey, but only an awakening. The Son of God,
who sleepeth not, has kept faith with his Father
for you. There is no road to travel on, and
no time to travel through. For God waits not
for His Son in time, being forever unwilling
to be without him. And so it has always been.

accepting his purity as yours, learn of him
that it is yours.

can hold on to the past only through guilt.
For guilt establishes that you will be punished
for what you have done, and thus depends on
one-dimensional time, proceeding from past to
future. No one who believes this can understand
what always means. And therefore guilt must
deprive you of the appreciation of eternity.

then, is a way of holding past and future in
your minds to ensure the ego’s continuity.
For if what has been will be punished, the ego’s
continuity is guaranteed. Yet
the guarantee of your continuity is God’s,
not the ego’s. And immortality is the
opposite of time, for time passes away, while
immortality is constant.
the Atonement teaches you what immortality
is, for by accepting your guiltlessness you
learn that the past has never been, and so the
future is needless. The future, in time, is
always associated with expiation, and only guilt
could induce a sense of need for expiation.
the guiltlessness of the Son of God as yours
is therefore God’s way of reminding you
of His Son, and what he is in truth. For God
has never condemned His Son, and being guiltless,
he is eternal.
cannot dispel guilt by making it real and then
atoning for it. This is the ego’s plan,
which it offers instead of dispelling it. The
ego believes in atonement through attack, being
fully committed to the insane notion that attack
is salvation. And
you who cherish guilt must also believe it,
for how else but by identifying with the ego
could you hold dear what you do not want?
The ego teaches you to attack yourself because
you are guilty, and this must increase the guilt,
for guilt is the result of attack. In
the ego’s teaching, then, there is no
escape from guilt. For attack makes guilt real,
and if it is real, there is no way to overcome
Holy Spirit dispels it simply through the calm
recognition that it has never been. As He looks
upon the guiltless Son of God, He knows this
is true. And being true for you, you cannot
attack yourself, for without guilt, attack is
impossible. You, then, are saved because God’s
Son is guiltless. And being wholly pure, you
