What have you done that this should be your world?
What have you done that this is what you see?
Deny your own identity and this is what remains.
Pain is a sign illusions reign in place of truth.
If God is real there is no pain.
If pain is real there is no God.
For vengeance is not part of love.
Jesus is speaking.
This is a dream.
It is a nightmare of abandonment by an Eternal Love,
which could not leave the Son whom It created out of love.
I will awaken you as surely as I awakened myself,
for I awoke for you.
Your Father loves you.
All the world of pain is not His Will.
Forgive yourself the thought He wanted this for you.
You cannot understand how much your Father loves you,
for there is no parallel in your experience of the world to help you
There is nothing on earth with which it can compare,
and nothing you have ever felt apart from Him resembles it ever so
Only the Love of God will protect you in all circumstances.
It will lift you out of every trial,
and raise you high above all the perceived dangers of this world
into a climate of perfect peace and safety.
Would you know the Will of God for you?
Ask it of me who knows it for you and you will find it.
I will deny you nothing, as God denies me nothing.
Ours is simply the journey back to God Who is our home.
The journey to God is merely the reawakening of the knowledge
of where you
are always, and what you are forever.
It is a journey without distance
to a goal that has never changed.
Truth can only be experienced.
It cannot be described and it cannot be explained.
I can make you aware of the conditions of truth,
but the experience is of God.
Together we can meet its conditions,
but truth will dawn upon you of itself.
I give you the lamp and will go with you.
You will not take this journey alone.
I will lead you to your true Father,
Who hath need of you,
as I have.
To your tired eyes I bring a vision of a different world,
so new and clean and fresh you will forget the pain and sorrow that you
Yet this a vision is which you must share with everyone you see,
for otherwise you will behold it not.
To give this gift is how to make it yours.
And God ordained, in loving kindness, that it be for you.
It is not time we need for this.
It is but willingness.
For what would seem to need a thousand years
can easily be done in just one instant by the grace of God.
His gift of grace is more than just an answer.
It restores all memories the sleeping mind forgot;
all certainty of what Love's meaning is.
This world is full of miracles.
They stand in shining silence next to every dream of pain and suffering,
of sin and guilt.
Let us be glad that we can walk the world,
and find so many chances to perceive another situation
where God's gift can once again be recognized as ours!
And thus will all the vestiges of hell,
the secret sins and hidden hates be gone.
And all the loveliness which they concealed appear like lawns of Heaven to
to lift us high above the thorny roads we traveled on before
the Christ appeared.
God gives thanks to you,
His Son, for being what you are.
You are His Own completion and the Source of love,
along with Him.
Your gratitude to Him is one with His to you.
For love can walk no road except the way of gratitude,
and thus we go who walk the way to God.
You do not walk alone.
God's angels hover near and all about.
His Love surrounds you,
and of this be sure;
that I will never leave you comfortless.
A Course In Miracles.
