beyond yourself can make you fearful or loving because
nothing is beyond you.
and eternity are both in your minds, and will conflict
until you perceive time solely as a means to regain
eternity. You cannot do this as long as you believe
that anything which happens to you is caused by factors
outside yourself. You must learn that time is solely
at your disposal, and that nothing in the world can
take this responsibility from you. You can violate God’s
laws in your imagination, but you cannot escape from
them. They were established for your protection, and
are as inviolate as your safety.
God created nothing beside you and nothing beside you
exists, for you are part of Him. What except Him can
exist? Nothing beyond Him can happen because nothing
except Him is real.
creations add to Him as you do, but nothing is added
that is different because everything has always been.
What can upset you except the ephemeral, and how can
the ephemeral be real if you are God’s only creation
and He created you eternal? Your holy will establishes
everything that happens to you. Every response you make
to everything you perceive is up to you because your
will determines your perception of it.
God does not change His Mind about you, for He is not
uncertain of Himself. And what He knows can be known
because He does not know only for Himself. He created
you for Himself, but He gave you the power to create
for your self so you could be like him. That is why
your will is holy.
anything exceed the Love of God? Can anything, then,
exceed your will? Nothing can reach you from beyond
it because, being in God, you encompass everything.
Believe this, and you will realize how much is up to
anything threatens your peace of mind, ask yourself,
God changed His Mind about me?”
Then accept His decision, for it is indeed changeless,
and refuse to change your mind about yourself. God will
never decide against you, or He would be deciding against
reason you do not know your creations is simply that
you would decide against them as long as your minds
are split, and to attack what you have created is impossible.
But remember that it is as impossible for God. The law
of creation is that you love your creations as yourself
because they are part of you. Everything that was created
is therefore perfectly safe because the laws of God
protect it by His Love. Any part of your mind that does
not know this has banished itself from knowledge because
it has not met its conditions.
Who could have done this but you?
this gladly, for in this recognition lies the realization
that your banishment is not of God, and therefore does
not exist. You are at home in God, dreaming of exile,
but perfectly capable of awakening to reality. Is it
your will to do so? You know, from your own experience,
that what you see in dreams you think is real as long
as you are asleep. Yet the instant you waken you know
that everything that seemed to happen did not happen
at all. You do not think this mysterious, even though
all the laws of what you awakened to were violated while
you slept. It is not possible that you merely shifted
from one dream to another, without really wakening?
Would you bother to reconcile what happened in conflicting
dreams, or would you dismiss both together if you discovered
that reality is in accord with neither?
do not remember being awake. When you hear the Holy
Spirit you merely feel better because loving seems possible
to you, but you do not remember yet that it once was
so. And it is in this remembering that you will know
it can be so again. What
is possible has not yet been accomplished. Yet what
has once been is so now, if it is eternal. When you
remember, you will know what you remember is eternal,
and therefore is now.
will remember everything the instant you desire it wholly,
for if to desire wholly is to create, you will have
willed away the separation, returning your mind simultaneously
to your Creator and your creations. Knowing them you
will have no wish to sleep, but only the will to waken
and be glad. Dreams will be impossible because you will
want only truth, and being at last your will it will
