7 - Consistency of the Kingdom
The Holy Spirit will always guide you truly, because
your joy is His. This is His Will for everyone, because
He speaks for the Kingdom of God, which is joy. Following
Him is therefore the easiest thing in the world, and
the only thing that is easy, because it is not of the
world, and is therefore natural.
world goes against your nature, being out of accord
with God’s laws. The world perceives orders of
difficulty in everything. This is because the ego perceives
nothing as wholly desirable. By
demonstrating to yourselves that there is no order of
difficulty in miracles, you will convince yourselves
that, in your natural state, there is no difficulty
because it is a state of grace.
Grace is the natural state of every Son of God. When he
is not in a state of grace, he is out of his natural environment
and does not function well. Everything he does becomes
a strain, because he was not created for the environment
that he has made. He therefore cannot adapt to it, nor
can he adapt it to him. There is no point in trying.
A Son of God is happy
only when he knows he is with God. That
is the only environment in which he will not experience

it protect his peace, and shine love upon him? Does
it keep his heart untouched by fear, and allow him
to give always, without any sense of loss? Does it
teach him that this giving is his joy, and that God
Himself thanks him for his giving?

cannot make it, any more than you can make yourselves.

of exceptions is the lesson. Every Son who returns to

because he has learned it of the Holy Spirit, Who wants
to teach him everything He knows. When
