A Course in Miracles

Workbook For Students

Lesson 102 - I share God's Will for happiness for me.

You do not want to suffer. You may think it buys you something, and may still believe, a little, that it buys you what you want. Yet this belief is surely shaken now, at least enough to let you question it, and to suspect it really makes no sense. It has not gone as yet, but lacks the roots that once secured it tightly to the dark and hidden secret places of your mind.

Today we try to loose its weakened hold still further. And to realize that pain...

  • is purposeless,
  • without a cause, and
  • with no power to accomplish anything.

It cannot purchase anything at all. It offers nothing, and does not exist. And everything you think it offers you is lacking in existence, like itself. You have been slave to nothing. Be you free today to join the happy Will of God.

For several days we will continue to devote our longer practice periods to exercises planned to help you reach the happiness God's Will has placed in you.

  • Here is your home, and
  • here your safety is.
  • Here is your peace, and
  • here there is no fear.
  • Here is salvation.
  • Here is rest at last.

Practice Instructions

1. Begin the longer practice periods (10-30 minutes morning & night) with this acceptance of God's Will for you:

“I share God's Will for happiness for me, and I accept it as my function now.”

2. Then seek this function deep within your mind, for it is there, awaiting but your choice. You cannot fail to find it when you learn it is your choice, and that you share God's Will.

Be happy, for your only function here is happiness.

You have no need to be less loving to God's Son than He Whose Love created him as loving as Himself.

3. Besides these hourly five-minute rests, pause frequently today to tell yourself that you have now accepted happiness as your one function.

“I share God's Will for happiness for me, and I accept it as my function now.”

And be sure that you are joining with God's Will in doing this.
