C:2.8 you identify some things you call progress and others that you  call evolution and you hope you have some miniscule role to play in
C:3.5 in wanting only what your eyes can see and hands can hold. You  call these things real and all else unreal. You can close your eyes

C:4.19 Even you who do not recognize what love is protect what you  call love from the illusions you have made.
C:4.20 love is has guided you in choosing to set love apart from what you  call the real world, from that which is, in fact, the sum total of
C:4.22 Some would  call such a life selfish and wonder how the occupants of this
C:4.26 This joining is the goal you seek, the only goal worthy of love’s  call.
C:5.12 and it is what remains outside that calls you to do what love would  call you not to do. What remains outside is all that has not joined
C:6.9 truth will bring. What could be more insane than that which you now  call sanity? What loss can there be in joining with what is so like
C:6.12 not be that which came before. For every challenge faced is but a  call to face the next. And each one comes to replace the old with
C:6.21 and new life you still before they have a chance at birth and  call them wishful thinking. What harm do you expect happy thoughts to

C:7.11 dozens or even hundreds of times a day. An unreturned phone  call, a bit of traffic, a harsh word spoken, an unremembered errand—
C:7.18 how bound your thinking is to specifics. Again this is why we  call on love and the hidden knowledge of your heart. Your heart
C:7.18 Your heart may be said to break, but the image that these words  call forth is of a heart cracked open, not of a heart in separate

C:8.6 Problems that mount up and seem too much to bear can cause what you  call emotional turmoil or even a nervous breakdown. In these
C:9.14 are guided by memories trying to reveal the truth to you. They  call to you from a place that you know not. The difficulty is that
C:9.14 not. The difficulty is that the only self that is listening to this  call is your separated self. It is in the attempts of the separated
C:9.22 value, but again I tell you that this value is temporary. My words  call you to the eternal, to nourishment and rest of the spirit rather
C:9.32 from the reality you have made in which you use the body that you  call your home and identify as your own self. How can the user and
C:9.38 In doing so you see yourself as “spending your time” wisely, and you  call yourself a “well-rounded individual.” As long as more than this
C:9.42 bind both. Who is master and who is slave in this body you would  call your home? What freedom would you have without the demands your
C:9.48 desire to be loved. Why wait to see that these desires are all that  call you to the strange behavior you display? Those who give in to
C:10.1 own body? If you are not even joined with this presence that you  call your home, how can you be expected to join with others?
C:10.2 in union closer than the union that you feel with the body you  call your own is indeed ridiculous. Joining happens in relationship,
C:10.19 What you would  call your state of mind is more like a general atmosphere, an
C:10.19 of your separated self care little for such as this and would  call such concerns irrelevant to its well-being. Its survival as it
C:11.2 of its creator, as does each work of art you would gaze upon and  call a masterpiece, as well as those creations of little hands you
C:11.15 from it. But what this willingness really does is allow your  call to be sounded, your call to love and to be loved. It is a
C:11.15 this willingness really does is allow your call to be sounded, your  call to love and to be loved. It is a willingness to receive love
C:11.16 It is a  call that comes not from weakness but from strength, and that goes
C:11.16 from strength, and that goes out to truth and not illusion. It is a  call whose answer will come to you quickly on the wings of angels, a
C:11.17 This is a  call that requires you to do nothing but to remain faithful to it.

C:13.10 will strongly resist your attempts to listen to your heart, and will  call this every kind of foolishness, a waste of time that could be
C:14.10 You thus hold the one you love the most in the greatest bondage, and  call that bondage a relationship.
C:14.15 things for yourself stems from something other than fear. You might  call this desire pride or security, or even accept that it is vanity,
C:14.15 or security, or even accept that it is vanity, before you would  call it fear. But fear is what it is.
C:14.20 no deception must remain afraid of the great deceiver. Whether they  call it life or death, it is still the same. It is the chance that
C:14.22 Loss of love comes from only one source.  Call it fear or call it separation but it is still the same. For in

C:15.9 the many ills that have made you and those you love suffer, to  call into question humanity’s right to specialness seems the ultimate
C:15.9 that you could change and be unlike others of your kind, you would  call an act of treachery. To give your allegiance to your Father and
C:16.3 Yet if this child grows up with behavior that remains unchanged you  call him deviant or criminal, and claim that it is not love he seeks,

C:16.24 physician were to give up his power to heal you would surely  call it a waste, and yet you give up your power to be who you are and

C:20.48 one heartbeat, the return to what is known. This knowing you might  call wisdom and think of as an attainable ideal of thought. Yet it is
C:23.24 These learning opportunities  call for a period of engagement with life. Many of you will have
C:26.12 the limit of your patience with instruction? Have you not felt the  call to live growing stronger in you by the day? Are you not anxious
C:27.14 that is happening in the present as your present reality, and as a  call to be in relationship with it. It is the willingness to set
C:28.13 There are no more decisions for you to make. There is only a  call for a dedicated and devoted will, a will dedicated to the
C:29.16 —as we have stated before—your ideas of using the very body you  call your home rather than allowing it to serve you.
C:29.22 own or to separate what you have from what another has and then to  call it special. You claim in order to reclaim your Self.
C:31.6 or remove your own brain to view it beneath a microscope. Yet you  call your body your own and identify it as your self. Your body moves
C:32.2 What would love have me see? What would love have me say? When you  call upon Love you call upon your Source. When you seek the wisdom of
C:32.2 me see? What would love have me say? When you call upon Love you  call upon your Source. When you seek the wisdom of your heart you
C:32.2 call upon your Source. When you seek the wisdom of your heart you  call upon me. When you seek the truth that is in your mind, you call
C:32.2 you call upon me. When you seek the truth that is in your mind, you  call upon the Holy Spirit. Thus is the Sacred Trinity always
T1:2.8 But now this alternative is being revealed to you, and it does  call for a change of thought so extensive that all thought as you
T1:2.12 of thinking is referred to here as the “art” of thought in order to  call your wholehearted attention to the continual act of creation
T1:2.17 experience. It is there not for you alone, but in listening to its  call for a response, it becomes a gift for you that is in no way
T1:2.19 to acknowledge the relationship inherent in the experience, the  call for a response, and the nature of all gifts as being given to
T1:2.22 and the nature of the gift is to realize unity. To realize the  call for a response is to hear the call to create like unto the
T1:2.22 to realize unity. To realize the call for a response is to hear the  call to create like unto the Creator. This creating like unto the
T1:3.6 is, is a faith in miracles. Miracles are what you are now asked to  call upon. For calling upon miracles is an act of faith. You think
T1:4.4 sunset. Are you any less the glory of God than the sun? This is a  call to be as aware of your Self as you are capable of being aware of
T1:4.6 rule of the art of thought is to acknowledge relationship, the  call for a response, and the nature of all gifts as being given to
T1:4.6 and the nature of all gifts as being given to all. This is thus a  call to realize that you exist in relationship, that your
T1:4.9 of you as your responsibility is placed where it belongs, in the  call to respond. This response is only yours to give and is all you
T1:4.11 responsible, and responsibility here. This is no accident. Your  call is to respond and you have seen this call incorrectly as a call
T1:4.11 This is no accident. Your call is to respond and you have seen this  call incorrectly as a call to be responsible. The idea of
T1:4.11 Your call is to respond and you have seen this call incorrectly as a  call to be responsible. The idea of responsibility sprang from the
T1:4.12 these gifts that has led to your oppression. Again I tell you, your  call is to respond rather than to be responsible. How can you be free
T1:8.1 of God. I have told you that you are no different than I was. Now I  call you to be no different than I am.
T1:8.11 myth often more accurately reflects the truth than what you would  call real. This is not a call, however, to embrace myth, but to
T1:8.11 reflects the truth than what you would call real. This is not a  call, however, to embrace myth, but to embrace the truth.
T1:9.13 your self-image? And did this threat occur at what you would  call the feeling level or at the intellectual level? Were your
T1:10.11 Let us separate experiences you might  call peak experiences from experiences of extremes that served as
T2:2.1 that are consistent with the idea you currently hold of hearing a  call or having a calling.
T2:2.7 seek guarantees of the rightness and outcome of following such a  call, seek for proof they have already been given. The call itself is
T2:2.7 such a call, seek for proof they have already been given. The  call itself is proof. It is proof of the heart’s ability to be heard.
T2:4.18 you may feel as if you are in a time of waiting for you hear no such  call. The call is to be who you are and this is happening at
T2:4.18 as if you are in a time of waiting for you hear no such call. The  call is to be who you are and this is happening at lightning speed, a
T2:4.19 you will begin to see that each new response is the answer to a  call that your heart alone can hear. As I have said, your heart has
T2:4.19 heart has now become your eyes and ears. Your heart hears only one  call, one voice, the language of one Source—that of unity.
T2:5.1 listen to your heart, you hear and are able to respond to the one  call, this does not mean that this one call has but one request to
T2:5.1 able to respond to the one call, this does not mean that this one  call has but one request to make of you, as in a call to be a
T2:5.1 mean that this one call has but one request to make of you, as in a  call to be a minister, nor that it will come in but one form, as in a
T2:5.1 to be a minister, nor that it will come in but one form, as in a  call to action. We have talked heretofore about a calling you feel
T2:5.1 will come as announcements, signs, or even as seeming demands. All  call you to the present where response is able to be given. All call
T2:5.1 All call you to the present where response is able to be given. All  call you “back” to who you are.
T2:5.2 Again let me stress the present-moment nature of being called. A  call is, at its most basic level, a means of communication. If you
T2:5.2 are meant for you. If you are looking only for a specific type of  call, you will miss many unlearning and learning opportunities. Thus
T2:5.3 The  call that comes in the form of an announcement is the call that
T2:5.3 The call that comes in the form of an announcement is the  call that carries with it no ambiguity. The certainty of an
T2:5.3 that it is time to act. This might be considered the highest form of  call, the call from the already accomplished to the already
T2:5.3 time to act. This might be considered the highest form of call, the  call from the already accomplished to the already accomplished. Such
T2:5.3 from the already accomplished to the already accomplished. Such a  call signals an end to learning from the lessons of the past and a
T2:5.3 a beginning of learning from the new. This Course itself is such a  call, an announcement of your readiness for the new. This is the
T2:5.3 of your readiness for the new. This is the all-encompassing  call and is not about specifics. Because it is not about specifics
T2:5.5 for certain attitudes or behaviors. You may also be called upon to  call others to account for their attitudes or behaviors.
T2:5.6 These last two calls, the  call that appears in the form of a sign and the call that comes in
T2:5.6 last two calls, the call that appears in the form of a sign and the  call that comes in the form of a demand, are about specifics in a way
T2:5.6 comes in the form of a demand, are about specifics in a way that the  call that comes as an announcement is not. They represent the
T2:6.7 sit. The exercises of A Course in Miracles began with asking you to  call into question these beliefs in known, observable, facts. You may
T2:7.2 true of those you hold most dear to you as it is of those you would  call strangers. It is the very independence of others that makes your
T2:10.8 Just beyond your mind’s ability to  call it forth lies the truth that you and all other beings know. The
T2:10.10 universe. The learning you are in need of is the learning that will  call who you are back to your united mind and heart. This is the
T2:12.7 The power of thought and the power of prayer, once aligned,  call constantly upon the same power of intercession that is the
T2:12.7 as a learning device, so you must come to see your own ability to  call forth intercession as a gift and treasure you are able to give
T2:12.8 be that you, as a miracle-minded being, are not called upon to also  call forth the treasure that exists around you? When you call to
T2:12.8 to also call forth the treasure that exists around you? When you  call to those whom you meet in relationship, you call but to the
T2:12.8 you? When you call to those whom you meet in relationship, you  call but to the already accomplished.
T2:12.12 relationship with, is how you are called to live your life and the  call you are asked to sound to all your brothers and sisters.
T2:13.1 The final  call of this Treatise is, in contrast to those put forth previously,
T2:13.1 Treatise is, in contrast to those put forth previously, a personal  call from me to you. By now you have seen that your fears of losing
T2:13.5  Call upon your relationship with me to aid you, as I call upon you to
T2:13.5 Call upon your relationship with me to aid you, as I  call upon you to assist me in calling all of our brothers and sisters
T2:13.5 calling all of our brothers and sisters to their return to unity. We  call to one another in gratitude. This is the attitude of the
T3:2.1 representation being to share the Self in a new way. Expressions you  call art are desires to share the Self in a new way. These
T3:2.1 are desires to share the Self in a new way. These expressions you  call art are expressions of a Self who observes and interacts in
T3:2.2 representation of what the artist chooses to share, few of us would  call these representations useless or without value. Art is a
T3:2.8 Thus, not all that is called art is art, and not all that you  call self is Self, even while both may represent the truth as you
T3:3.9 because failure is deemed a certainty. While you continue to see the  call of this Course as a call to goodness, you will surely fail.
T3:3.9 a certainty. While you continue to see the call of this Course as a  call to goodness, you will surely fail.
T3:4.1 is the only way to learn a new curriculum. This Course will not  call you to effort of any kind. It will not tell you to leave behind
T3:4.3 an idea of a state that is not ideal. You cannot have an idea you  call “right” without believing in an idea that can be “wrong.”
T3:5.4 cracked and peeling walls that you built. That you would eventually  call to yourself a fire that would burn these walls to ash or a flood
T3:7.8 Thus has been the best of what you  call life within the illusion.
T3:9.3 see things that are like unto those within the house of illusion and  call them what you called them once before. But here you will find
T3:11.10 To realize the difference between truth and illusion is not to  call one right and the other wrong but to simply recognize what they
T3:14.1 to be, or the architects of the new world of heaven on earth that I  call you to create.
T3:14.10 there are things that you, at this point, still hold to yourself and  call unforgivable, now is the time to let them go. If you have read
T3:15.13 what this Course did was bypass the way of learning of the ego and  call upon the Christ in you to learn anew. That learning put an end
T3:19.2 can certainly still be experienced and expressed. This is no  call for judgment upon the physical. How could this be true when the
T3:19.14 so many are being called in the strongest manner it is possible to  call them. It is only when what is observable is so widely evident
T3:20.8 in a new way, but all situations within the house of illusion  call for the same response, the response of love to love. Why think
T3:20.8 to see that in so doing you but reinforce it? What you might even  call the “fact” of it? Can you not instead ask yourself what harm
T3:20.9 you are being told directly here that no circumstance should  call you to abandon them.
T3:20.10 Look at the examples all around you. People who live what you  call healthy lives succumb to illnesses and accidents just as do
T3:20.10 to illnesses and accidents just as do those who live what you  call unhealthy lives. “Good” people have as much calamity befall them
T3:20.14 compassion and for your desire to be of service to the world. But I  call to you from peace and ask for you to remain in peace with me and
T3:20.14 to remain in peace with me and let not the suffering of the world  call you from it. When these things of the world threaten to call you
T3:20.14 world call you from it. When these things of the world threaten to  call you from your peace, you must remind yourself that it is only
T3:20.15 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let nothing  call you to return to the ways of old. They do not work! To minister
T3:20.15 house of illusion is to offer the temporary to the temporary when I  call you to offer the eternal to the eternal. The new way will work
T3:20.15 The new way will work wherever it finds willingness. You cannot  call others to abandon their willingness to live in illusion by
T3:20.15 willingness to live in illusion by joining them there! You can only  call others to a willingness to set illusion aside and to begin the
T3:20.15 illusion aside and to begin the journey home to unity. You can only  call to them from unity if you are already there!
T3:20.16 responded to. It is the love within your heart that will sound the  call. And when it is heard, and your brother or sister reaches out to
T3:20.19 and nothing else for there is nothing else. There is but one  call for all circumstances, the call to love from love, the call that
T3:20.19 is nothing else. There is but one call for all circumstances, the  call to love from love, the call that welcomes all to live in truth.
T3:20.19 but one call for all circumstances, the call to love from love, the  call that welcomes all to live in truth.
T3:21.11 or female, married or single, homosexual or heterosexual. You might  call yourselves Chinese or Lebanese or American, black or white or
T3:21.11 Your personal self may be deeply affected by these things you  call yourself or may be minimally affected.
T3:21.13 Many of you have political or philosophical identities. You may  call yourself Christian or doctor or Democrat. You may have beliefs
T3:21.14 to your personal self: a historical aspect, an aspect we will  call self-image, and an aspect that has to do with beliefs.
T3:21.21 more than the oceans that separate east from west. This is why this  call to return to your Self is being sounded far and wide and why it
T3:21.21 and ordinary people like yourself. There is no exclusivity to this  call. It excludes no race nor religion nor ones of either sex or
T3:21.24 There is no “other” who can follow the  call meant for you. No other who can give the response you are meant
T3:22.2 called to leadership and while I have surely meant this and do not  call for leaders to amass followers, I do not mean to dissuade any of
T3:22.2 to amass followers, I do not mean to dissuade any of you who feel a  call to represent this Course and the teachings of this Course with
T3:22.2 of this Course with your lives and work. Those who feel this  call are surely needed. And each of you will find the sharing of this
T3:22.10 in matters of a personal nature. This very readiness is what I now  call your attention to as I complete this Treatise with lessons
T3:22.17 is really the observation of a Self beyond the personal self. To  call forth observance is to call forth the sight of your true Self.
T3:22.17 of a Self beyond the personal self. To call forth observance is to  call forth the sight of your true Self. To call forth the sight of
T3:22.17 forth observance is to call forth the sight of your true Self. To  call forth the sight of your true Self is to call your true Self into

T4:4.6 of the Father, as one of life-giving union. I called you then and I  call you now to this inheritance.
T4:4.10 do not speak of bodies living forever instead of living for what you  call a lifetime—be it a lifetime of twenty or fifty or ninety
T4:6.6 in the universe, dear brothers and sisters, for everyone’s choice. I  call you to a new choice, but not to intolerance of those who are not
T4:6.6 but not to intolerance of those who are not ready to make it. I  call you to a new choice with the full realization that your choice
T4:8.16 To learn everything there is to know about even one subject, and to  call that learning complete, is an error. If you rethink this
T4:9.7 all of the forerunners of the new who have been courageous enough to  call you to examine yourself. Be grateful to yourself that you have
D:1.12 sacraments have largely lost their meaning, the sacrament I now  call you to restores meaning. Since new names are only symbols of new

D:3.8 your true nature as a being existing in union, and this is why we  call them ideas to carry forward. These are new ideas to you because
D:4.8 structured life to a greater extent than many of those who  call themselves free.
D:4.26 accept that your release is possible, to desire it without fear, to  call it into being.
D:4.31 and the reasons that you feel must prevent you from the acceptance I  call you to. Yet as you fully accept that your right to your

D:5.22 So let today’s dialogue serve as a final  call, a most emphatic call, to acceptance. See the importance of this
D:5.22 So let today’s dialogue serve as a final call, a most emphatic  call, to acceptance. See the importance of this acceptance to

D:6.6 determined their use to be. There is thus truth, or what we might  call the seeds of the truly real, or the energy of creation, in
D:6.16 before you. Calling what you think you know into question is not a  call to return to uncertainty, but a call to allow real certainty to

D:7.4 you have learned. In order to experience the new you must answer the  call to let revelation and discovery, rather than learning, be what
D:7.10 Realize that this is a  call to love all of yourself. You who once could love spirit or mind,
D:7.11 nothing that it is, is deserving of anything other than love. This  call to love all of your Self is a call to unconditional,

D:7.26 In order to facilitate your understanding, I  call you now to imagine your body as a dot in the center of a circle
D:7.28 duty or social engagement. You may expand this small territory you  call your own with business travel or vacations, and have more than
D:7.29 with consciousness of the All of Everything. This territory we will  call the territory of your conscious awareness. This territory of
D:9.7 consider what imprisons you and then being called to reconsider. The  call is still the same, but the means by which you are considering
D:9.7 is still the same, but the means by which you are considering the  call has changed. Thus there is no contradiction although there may
D:10.2 process of learning. Notice the inability of teaching or learning to  call forth talents, ideas, imagination, inspiration, instinct,
D:10.4 personal accomplishment, nothing to be proud of, nothing to  call your own. You thus must begin to realize that the bringing forth
D:11.5 receive the attention of your thoughts. The hope of answering your  call and fulfilling your promise has lit a bonfire in your heart and
D:17.7 chain of giving and receiving as one. You offer up your glory and  call it down from heaven, both at the same time.
D:Day1.13 God cares not what you  call Him. God knows who He is. It is man who has known not who he is,
D:Day1.15 all beloved sons and daughters of love itself, no matter what you  call that love. You all are equally beloved. That you give your
D:Day3.6 old learning as well as new—than love. This is the area that you  call money and that I call abundance. Feel your body’s reaction to
D:Day3.6 as new—than love. This is the area that you call money and that I  call abundance. Feel your body’s reaction to this statement. Some of
D:Day4.15 world as opposed to the world of your perception, what we might  call a world-view attained through learning.
D:Day4.17 That challenge was meant then, and continues to mean now, a  call to a new choice. It asks that you challenge your world-view in a
D:Day4.18 challenge has been reacted to as a challenge to be externalized, a  call to create a new system. But nowhere in my example life is such a
D:Day4.43 to the mountain top, not once or many times. But this is not what I  call you to.
D:Day5.20 to your weariness and to your heart’s desire to rest. Listen to the  call to peace and let yourself recline in the embrace of love,
D:Day6.31 There is, thus, no  call to be discouraged. This is not delay, but what you might think
D:Day8.14 you have been both a participant and a victim of it. It may still  call up feelings of shame or irritation. It may even still intrigue
D:Day8.30 I  call you now to embrace this freedom.
D:Day9.16 limited view of yourself would have you be, was a necessary tool to  call you to the learning that would return you to your true identity.
D:Day10.9 that come, not as these seeming warnings, but as what you might  call intuitive flashes of insight—intuition that causes you to make
D:Day10.11 reject an existing trust as you do with the thoughts of the mind you  call rational. It works against you because all feelings are capable
D:Day10.16 When I  call you to replace conviction with reliance, I call you to replace
D:Day10.16 When I call you to replace conviction with reliance, I  call you to replace belief in an outside source with reliance upon
D:Day10.32 All the issues that those you would  call spiritual leaders are called to champion or censor have their
D:Day10.32 we are speaking of situations that would seem to be extreme and to  call for extreme measures. The only extreme measure called for now is
D:Day10.32 the same extreme measure that I called for during my life. It is the  call to embrace your power.
D:Day18.4 is interlaced with bringing this expression to fulfillment. If the  call is there, the need is there. Have no question in your mind about
D:Day19.7 occur within. The function of those called to the way of Jesus is to  call others to the new through means so widespread, varied, and
D:Day22.9 is what we have been calling Christ-consciousness, but what you  call it now matters not. All the words that have been expressed here,
D:Day22.10 The unknown can only be made known through reception and expression.  Call it what you will for what you call it matters not. Throw out all
D:Day22.10 through reception and expression. Call it what you will for what you  call it matters not. Throw out all the words that express the unknown
D:Day35.6 the mountain came to you. You will thus always have the power to  call upon the mountain top experience and the view of wholeness we
D:Day35.6 it within you, and when you feel not its power, you will be able to  call it forth simply by asking for it to be so.
D:Day36.3 Your experiences in their totality you  call your life. Yet you have stood apart from these experiences—all
D:Day37.10 but Jesus. Not separated but individuated. You realize that the  call for the second coming of Christ has sounded and that it is a
D:Day37.10 call for the second coming of Christ has sounded and that it is a  call to the difference you have always desired while not requiring
D:Day38.5  Call me God the Father, call me God the Mother, call me Creator, or
D:Day38.5 Call me God the Father,  call me God the Mother, call me Creator, or Great Spirit, Yahweh or
D:Day38.5 Call me God the Father, call me God the Mother,  call me Creator, or Great Spirit, Yahweh or Allah, but call me yours.
D:Day38.5 the Mother, call me Creator, or Great Spirit, Yahweh or Allah, but  call me yours. For this is who I Am.
D:Day38.6  Call yourself daughter or son, sister or brother, co-creator or
D:Day38.6 daughter or son, sister or brother, co-creator or friend. But  call yourself mine. For we belong to one another.
D:Day38.7 And realize that as I  call upon you, I call you who I Am.
D:Day38.7 And realize that as I call upon you, I  call you who I Am.
D:Day38.10 to see me as your own God as well as God of all. Now it is time to  call me who I Am.
D:Day39.8 in union and relationship is to be Christ, to realize that what we  call Christ is the integration of relationship into the Self.
D:Day40.6 others are. These are the attributes of your being, what you might  call your personality or even who you are. As has been said before,
A.24 of this Course and of this beginning level of what I only loosely  call a curriculum. It is appropriate to remember and to be reminded
A.25 for those in need of challenges, is the challenge presented in the  call to reside in unity and to express the divinity of their nature
A.25 of their nature through sharing in union and relationship. This  call is addressed further in the work of the Treatises.
A.47 all around you. I am with you and will never leave you comfortless.  Call on me, for I am here. Talk to me, and I will hear you. Listen,

called (233)

C:I.3 uses, though new, wounds the heart of the most tender, of those most  called to love and its sweetness. “I am wrong to feel the way I do”
C:P.25 Spirit is, but your identity. While the Holy Spirit was properly  called upon to change your perception and show you the false from the
C:P.26 recognize. In the family of man, there are many families but it is  called one family, the family of man. It is called one species, the
C:P.26 many families but it is called one family, the family of man. It is  called one species, the human species. Within this family of man are
C:P.26 which you call “your” family. A family has many members but it is  called one family. All of its members are descended from the same
C:1.7 and now is near, you realize none of what you formerly possessed and  called your treasures are needed. How silly you feel to have carted
C:4.27 as one and leave beyond your vision the world that you have seen and  called your home. This foreign world where you have been so lonely
C:6.13 birthed amongst sorrow, is seen as giving up. Heaven’s help is most  called upon for just this time, this time when giving up is close,
C:7.6 never be taken from you. For those whose lives are threatened, it is  called the will to live. For those whose identity is threatened, it
C:7.6 the will to live. For those whose identity is threatened, it is  called the cry of the individual. For others it is the call to
C:7.15 demand ransom of the world, for without them you would be the one  called upon to pay.
C:8.10 for a situation, problem, or relationship. Often this search is  called seeking for the truth. While the way in which you go about
C:10.15 I existed in human form, and after I rose again? This is rightly  called the mystery of faith: Christ has died, Christ has risen,
C:11.15 give? It can come in many manners and be given many forms. It can be  called a willingness to change your mind, or to allow yourself to be
C:11.15 or to allow yourself to be open to new possibilities. It can be  called a change of heart, or a willingness but to, for a little
C:11.17 need not give it, for it will extend from you naturally in miracles  called love. Love is all that will fill your emptiness, and all that
C:12.3 and failed. For all of you believe that you have tried this idea  called love, and all of you believe you have evidence that it is not
C:19.11 did not proclaim myself to be above or different from the rest, but  called each of you brother and sister and reminded you of our
C:20.38 and has no use for things. The inanimate as well as the animate is  called upon, depended upon for service. All use is replaced with
C:26.10 You find it almost impossible still to believe effort is not  called for—that what your heart but wishes for could simply come
C:27.16 worker because you do not think that you will ever know what is  called for.
C:30.5 You are headed toward what might be  called universal consciousness, though you will not know it when it
C:31.11 aggrandized all your thoughts and given them an identity we have  called the ego. Without dislodging your belief in your ego as
C:31.34 This aspect of giving and receiving as one is  called relationship. It allows you to experience who you are and thus
T1:1.6 you to trust in your heart, your reunited mind and heart will now be  called to act in unison. That A Course of Love instructed you little
T1:1.10 to think as God thinks.” Where once you recognized only illusion and  called it reality, the mind joined in union will now, more and more,
T1:1.12 Again your willingness is  called upon. Be willing now to apply the art of thought to the
T1:2.21 of being is negated. All senses and feelings of the human being are  called into awareness and yet there is also acknowledgment of the
T1:4.21 to learn the art of thought will be provided through what we have  called the re-experiencing of memory. These are opportunities to
T1:6.5 concept of prayer of which we speak nor one that can reasonably be  called a way of life or likened to the art of thought. Prayers such
T1:8.12 Mary is  called upon now as the myth to end all myths for in this example life
T1:8.13 You are each  called to return to your virgin state, to a state unaltered by the
T1:9.13 seemed to lie dormant for periods of time and then to suddenly be  called back to life through some event or situation? What was this
T1:9.13 level? Were your feelings hurt or your pride? Your feelings  called into question or your ideas? And what guise did the ego take
T1:9.15 have been changing. You will not see so much to value in what has  called your ego into action and will turn away from it.
T2:2.9 would cite practical reasons for doing other than what they feel  called to do. All of these ideas illustrate your belief that
T2:4.12 are rather asked to listen from within that peace to what you feel  called to do. This is not about the past and all those things that at
T2:4.13 Being who you are is what you are  called to do. You are here asked to live a life as seamless as that
T2:5.1 Course calls you to, we must also talk of another aspect of being  called. While we have concluded that when you listen to your heart,
T2:5.2 Again let me stress the present-moment nature of being  called. A call is, at its most basic level, a means of communication.
T2:5.5 to account” for certain attitudes or behaviors. You may also be  called upon to call others to account for their attitudes or
T2:7.10 As was stated in the beginning of this Treatise, this Course has not  called you to a static state of sameness, an acceptance of who you
T2:8.5 that that truth will not change. As we have said that you are not  called to a static acceptance that does not include change, this new
T2:10.1 occurring within it. This is a living Course. This is why you are  called to live it rather than to take it. This is why you are called
T2:10.1 are called to live it rather than to take it. This is why you are  called to be a teacher and a learner both. This is how the exchange
T2:10.11 Why, then, is this  called learning? Learning simply means to come to know. If what you
T2:11.4 You are  called to peace, a peace that begins and ends with ceasing to do
T2:11.14 Here that relationship is being  called Christ in order to keep the holiness and importance of this
T2:12.8 within, how can it be that you, as a miracle-minded being, are not  called upon to also call forth the treasure that exists around you?
T2:12.10 This holy relationship is what you are  called to cultivate as a gardener cultivates her garden. The gardener
T2:12.12 in all you are and all you are in relationship with, is how you are  called to live your life and the call you are asked to sound to all
T3:1.7 you are experiencing as the transformation to which you have been  called. These changes, perhaps, seem like little things—a change in
T3:2.4 you are asked to accept a new belief regarding the choice we have  called the separation, a choice you have deemed as sin.
T3:2.8 Just as artistic representations of illusion are sometimes  called art, representations of the self of illusion have been called
T3:2.8 called art, representations of the self of illusion have been  called the self without this being so. In each, however, is the self
T3:2.8 is the self you believe is real revealed. Thus, not all that is  called art is art, and not all that you call self is Self, even while
T3:3.2 true.” You make this same statement to yourself as well, seemingly  called to continuously challenge your own lovability.
T3:7.9 Now you have seized upon even this idea and  called it not treasure but theory and related it to the origins of
T3:8.1 is the House of Truth. Or better said, the House of Truth has been  called the Kingdom of God. I remind you, once again, that what you
T3:8.1 the Kingdom of God. I remind you, once again, that what you have  called things are but representations too and that we move now beyond
T3:9.3 like unto those within the house of illusion and call them what you  called them once before. But here you will find yourself gently
T3:9.6 have followed me beyond the walls of the house of illusion are now  called to begin the act of revealing and creating anew the life of
T3:9.7 believed in a Promised Land but they did not dwell in it. You are  called to dwell in the Promised Land, the House of Truth.
T3:10.9 that all doubt is doubt about yourself and that you are no longer  called to doubt yourself. Your Self is now your Christ-Self.
T3:10.10 learned. Your true Self has no cause for uncertainty. Thus you are  called, as well, to forget the uncertainty of the past.
T3:10.11 may seem like remedial lessons, they are not. You are no longer  called to a time of uncertainty to learn through contrast the lessons
T3:10.11 in the past and that all that is from the past is what you are being  called to forget. Thus when uncertainty arises, you need but remind
T3:10.16 This is why we have  called these lessons in forgetting practical lessons for the life of
T3:11.7 This is what you are now  called to do: Be aware that the love of God lives within you. Live
T3:11.9 I have  called the Kingdom of God the House of Truth rather than the House of
T3:11.16 the truth, that having remembered the truth of who you are, you are  called to forget the personal self who would find this cause for
T3:13.10 than the truth. To act as if this is the truth is what you are  called to do. You may even begin by something as simple as choosing
T3:14.2 is happening as “bad.” A “god” outside of the self would soon be  called upon to intercede. Blame would be placed. A return to
T3:14.11 in your world. This is the only act you can choose worthy of being  called selfishness. Be self “less” rather than selfish now and allow
T3:14.13 precedents. This is why you have been assured that what you are  called to is a life so new that you cannot even imagine it. Imagine
T3:15.9 The new beginning you are  called to now is a new beginning that, like all others that you have
T3:16.2 calling. You do not need to struggle to create the new world you are  called to create. You do not need to have a plan and you do not need
T3:16.3 the new from the old. If this were possible, you would indeed be  called to effort and to struggle, to planning and to a state of
T3:17.4 it was as much a new beginning as the new beginning you are now  called to. It required the learning of a new thought system, the
T3:17.5 your true Self could not learn the untrue, a new self, which we have  called the ego-self, was made. Since the ego-self cannot learn the
T3:17.6 The Holy Spirit was  called upon to return this remembrance to minds and hearts. But again
T3:17.6 that symbolize what is. In these stories, the Holy Spirit is always  called upon to return the true Self to the self of illusion. A Holy
T3:17.6 to return the true Self to the self of illusion. A Holy Spirit is  called to return to your mind and heart.
T3:17.8 of the Holy Spirit has now ended because the time of illusion is now  called to an end. What is finite has an end point and this is that
T3:18.8 observance is now an act of worship and of devotion and that you are  called to observe the truth rather than illusion no matter how real
T3:19.2 upon the physical. How could this be true when the physical is now  called upon to serve the greatest learning humankind has ever known?
T3:19.7 you any fear that you may have that an end to sexual union may be  called for. While some of you may have less desire for physical
T3:19.14 This is why no more time can be wasted and why so many are being  called in the strongest manner it is possible to call them. It is
T3:20.6 is the most common observance in such a circumstance. You might feel  called to tears, to words that acknowledge how “bad” the illness or
T3:20.6 the long walk toward death’s door. All of these actions could be  called your “observance” of the situation.
T3:20.11 the means, of living by the truth. Miracles are not meant to be  called upon to create specific outcomes in specific circumstances.
T3:20.12 explosions within it. You have stepped out of this house and are  called not to return. To turn your back not on the truth nor on God
T3:21.6 Your personal self exists in illusion. It is  called a personal self because it is attached to a person. A person
T3:21.17 Now however, you are being  called to accept your true identity even while you retain the form of
T3:21.21 While this has been  called the time of Christ, it is obviously no longer the time of
T3:21.24 This is quite obviously an old way of thinking. While no one is  called to evangelize, all are called equally to represent the truth
T3:21.24 old way of thinking. While no one is called to evangelize, all are  called equally to represent the truth and to observance of the truth.
T3:22.1 you currently live. While you may be happy to learn that you are not  called to evangelize or even to a leadership role, you know that you
T3:22.1 to evangelize or even to a leadership role, you know that you are  called to something and think that you as yet know not what that
T3:22.2 Surely there are already those  called to represent not only their true Selves but this Course to the
T3:22.2 would not be known to you. So even while I have said that no one is  called to leadership and while I have surely meant this and do not
T3:22.17 self into a representation of the truth. Realize that what we have  called “closed eyes” observation is really the observation of a Self
T4:1.22 in a state of unity rather than a state of separation. This yearning  called you to the limits of the state of consciousness that was the
T4:2.4 representation or demonstration of The Way. This is why I have been  called “The Way, The Truth and The Light.” I came to show The Way to
T4:2.16 be? This is the power of the devotion of the observant that you are  called to, the power of cause and its effect. This is the power you
T4:2.19 This is why it has long been stated that you are not  called to evangelize or convince anyone of the merits of this course
T4:2.28 see in union and relationship is the shared vision to which you are  called.
T4:2.29 where there is cause for fear. You must remember that you are now  called to see without judgment. To see without judgment is to see
T4:4.6 inheritance, the power of the Father, as one of life-giving union. I  called you then and I call you now to this inheritance.
T4:4.9 This is why this Treatise is  called “A Treatise on the New.” There has not been a time on Earth in
T4:4.18 those who came after me but could only be an example. What you are  called to do is to, through your multitude, sustain
T4:9.7 what these forerunners of the new, these prophets of the new have  called you to learn. Be appreciative of every tool that has advanced
T4:9.8 These have been the last of the intermediaries, these  called to a wisdom beyond their personal capacity. Now these
T4:9.8 capacity. Now these forerunners of the new, along with you, are  called to step beyond what they have learned to what can only be
T4:10.14 and create not the future but an extension of the past. You who are  called to leave learning behind are called to return to your union
T4:10.14 of the past. You who are called to leave learning behind are  called to return to your union and relationship with God wherein you
T4:11.1 predictions of the future have been made, and many of them have been  called prophecy. But the future is yet to be created.
T4:12.16 pushing against his limits? Has not this pushing against limits been  called progress? Have not even the most devastating misuses of power
D:1.9 These anti-ego tendencies are a real danger in this time. You are not  called to selflessness but to Self !
D:1.11 Help is here. Be what you have been  called to be. Open your dwelling place to your true Self, your true
D:1.12 This thought makes you worry about the identity of the one you have  called yourself. This has been the purpose of many renaming
D:2.2 denial of the false for the acceptance of the true. Although you are  called to these two actions simultaneously—the action of acceptance
D:3.7 Our first action in understanding what we are  called together to do is to begin to declassify all the various
D:4.2 made you feel as if each being stood separate and alone, you are now  called to see no more. In unity you are whole and inseparable, one
D:4.11 about the idea of divine design. This divine design could also be  called creation, and where we have spoken of creation previously,
D:4.22 brings you no joy and allows you not to be who you are, then you are  called to walk away. If you are tempted by a relationship in which
D:4.22 it will provide, you are but tempted by a false security, and are  called to turn away. If you are lured away from who you are by a
D:4.24 received. Become the author of your own life. Live it as you feel  called to live it.
D:5.7 You have determined sex to be the ultimate fulfillment of love and  called it “making love.” If it were painful rather than pleasurable,
D:5.10 judgment from your seeing, this must be reemphasized now as you are  called to see what you might previously have thought of as
D:5.11 Remember now that you are not  called to reinterpret but to accept revelation. You will not arrive
D:5.14 In this time of Christ, we are not  called to recreate the “tools” of learning but to allow all that was
D:6.20 that has no reality except in your imagination. What is this thing  called fate? Like all the systems you believe in, it is a system too,
D:6.21 system we are leaving behind. As a non-learning being you are now  called to accept that you no longer need this type of learning device
D:6.24 of learning—the pattern of acceptance. What might the body be  called to accept? This is an easy answer, as you have already called
D:6.24 be called to accept? This is an easy answer, as you have already  called upon the body to accept the indwelling of Christ. You have
D:7.7 as man or woman in a particular time in history. Now you are  called to discover how to exist in form without being defined by this
D:7.9 truly. You have not been aware of all that you are. You are thus now  called to discover and to become aware of all that you are. The body,
D:7.16 Observation takes place in time. Even while you have been  called to observe what is, what you are observing in form are the
D:7.21 in creation. This is why you have been told that you are not  called to evolution. Time-bound evolution is the way of the creature,
D:9.7 may feel as if contradictory things are being said, such as being  called to consider what imprisons you and then being called to
D:9.7 such as being called to consider what imprisons you and then being  called to reconsider. The call is still the same, but the means by
D:10.5 Working with what is in unity is not work but relationship. You are  called to realize your relationship with what is given from unity. It
D:11.5 and amplified by what you have learned. You know you have been  called and that a contribution has been asked of you. And so your
D:12.4 This work is  called a dialogue. A dialogue is most often thought of as a discourse
D:13.7 time when no intermediaries are needed or required. Thus you are not  called to become an intermediary trying to bridge the knowing of the
D:13.7 knowing of the separated self and the Self of union. What you are  called to do is to share in union with others whose awareness is
D:14.5 These questions could be asked when decision-making seems to be  called for, and when plans seem to need to be made.
D:16.9 spirit, and so, you think, you must at least be. You are, after all,  called a human being.
D:17.2 to a climax, to what, during the time of evolution, might have been  called evolutionary leaps.
D:Day1.11 and some from another. You may think that, as long as the power is  called forth, it matters not the name by which it is called. You may
D:Day1.11 as the power is called forth, it matters not the name by which it is  called. You may think that it all comes from the same source,
D:Day1.11 or broken. You may wonder why it should matter whether this power be  called Buddha or Allah, Muhammad or God.
D:Day1.14 to lead you beyond, the world would be a different place. Have I not  called you to a new time in which the conditions of learning exist no
D:Day1.16 I am not your teacher and you are not  called to follow me blindly. But you are called to follow, or succeed
D:Day1.16 teacher and you are not called to follow me blindly. But you are  called to follow, or succeed me. Only in this way can new life be
D:Day2.15 But just as you are  called here to accept me despite possible misgivings such as
D:Day2.15 me despite possible misgivings such as religious beliefs, you are  called to accept yourself. This unconditional acceptance is
D:Day3.27 Let me set your mind at ease, for you are not  called to sacrifice, as you have been told time and time again. I do
D:Day3.48 to the step beyond it, the step of action and ideas, the step often  called that of bargaining.
D:Day4.24 knew that it existed, but since they knew not how to access it, they  called it the Kingdom of Heaven and longed for access to it after
D:Day4.50 of abundance no more so than the acceptance of anger. You are  called to accept and not look back, not to dwell in any of the states
D:Day4.51 To be  called to make a new choice before full acceptance of what is would
D:Day5.18 here that while you want to know the specifics of how this thing  called access to unity will work, you are also impatient with
D:Day6.18 be changing the very fabric of your daily life. Changes you feel  called to make are not discouraged here. The point being made is
D:Day8.3 of what you do not like. Do you really think you are being  called to accept “normal life?” Called to accept those conditions
D:Day8.3 Do you really think you are being called to accept “normal life?”  Called to accept those conditions that have made you feel unhappy?
D:Day8.3 those conditions that have made you feel unhappy? No! You are being  called to an acceptance of new conditions!
D:Day8.4 truth, to stem from the details of your life. Even so, you are not  called to accept what you do not like, but to accept that you don’t
D:Day8.13 to combat illusion. Thus when you see others gossiping, you are  called to see only the truth of who they are—to see beyond the
D:Day8.13 it, and beyond the fear to the love that will dispel it. You are not  called to walk away in disgust, showing your righteous contempt for
D:Day8.19 Does this seem confusing? To be  called to see only the truth, to see beyond illusion, and then to be
D:Day8.22 now, it does not mean that you will react in whatever way anger once  called you to react and it does not mean that something is wrong with
D:Day8.22 means that you are involved in a situation or relationship that has  called forth that feeling. It is in the expression of that feeling
D:Day8.27 I have  called this time both the time of unity and the time of acceptance
D:Day9.15 carrot of fulfillment the ego but dangled before you in the place it  called the future. As with all messages of the ego, it but says that
D:Day10.11 you because all feelings are capable of providing what you have  called intuitive knowledge or insights and your distrust of this

D:Day10.18 between your Self and the man or woman you are. Now you are  called to forget what you have “learned” and to let all distinctions
D:Day10.18 you have “learned” and to let all distinctions slip away. You are  called to forget what you have learned and to realize what you know.

D:Day10.31 If you are being  called to acknowledge these feelings, what are you being called to do
D:Day10.31 are being called to acknowledge these feelings, what are you being  called to do with them? You are being called to respond to them with
D:Day10.31 feelings, what are you being called to do with them? You are being  called to respond to them with acceptance and love. As a man, I took
D:Day10.31 acceptance and love. As a man, I took a stand for the powerless and  called them to power. I am still doing so. Not because any of you are
D:Day10.32 All the issues that those you would call spiritual leaders are  called to champion or censor have their roots in timeless and
D:Day10.32 spiritual truths. It is the timeless and universal that you are  called, in unity, to respond to and with. But this response will not

D:Day14.12 coming to know. These words are only one means, which is why this is  called a dialogue. Realize now that this is but one voice of the
D:Day17.4 the world around you is all about. An approach to knowing, which was  called learning, was previously the predominant approach. As this

D:Day18.5 is to be what you represent in truth. Followers of all faiths are  called to example lives and to representation of the same truth. All
D:Day18.7 would aide understanding of the invisible. This is what you are now  called to do. Whether you demonstrate the myth of duality or the

D:Day19.4 through their acts of creation. Those called to the way of Mary are  called to be what they want to see reflected in the world and to the
D:Day19.5 reflection, they wonder why they, unlike their brothers and sisters  called to “do,” do not have a specific part to play in establishing
D:Day19.6 through relationship. All live and create in relationship. Those  called to the way of Mary, however, are called to the creation and

D:Day19.10 All are  called to become, but some must “do” in order to “become.” Those
D:Day19.10 are called to become, but some must “do” in order to “become.” Those  called to the way of Mary are not required to do in the sense of
D:Day19.11 This is not to say that those  called to the way of Jesus will find acclaim and those called to the
D:Day19.11 that those called to the way of Jesus will find acclaim and those  called to the way of Mary will find obscurity. Many called to the way

D:Day28.2 we will speak here of those experienced during the years of what is  called adulthood, coming of age, or the age of reason. These have
D:Day32.7 than scientific notions of the source of life. Whether it be  called God or the Big Bang or evolution, this notion presents the
D:Day32.11 Jesus spoke to you of his life as an example life. Jesus was  called the Son of God and also God. Those who understand the meaning
D:Day35.20 And yet you are not being  called upon to create as you have been, but to create as who you
D:Day35.20 as you have been, but to create as who you truly are being. You are  called to nothing short of creating a new heaven and a new earth.
D:Day36.3 only as physical events. Your experiences may, in their totality, be  called your life, but they cannot be called you. You stand apart. And

C:26.20 How can I, when each of you will hear the answer of your heart? The  calling of love to love inviolate? The answer that only you can hear.
C:28.11 feeling of wondering what is next as you wait in anticipation for a  calling of some kind, so certain are you of an impending challenge to
T1:3.6 in miracles. Miracles are what you are now asked to call upon. For  calling upon miracles is an act of faith. You think the quest for

T2:2.1 with the idea you currently hold of hearing a call or having a  calling.
T2:2.2 Having a  calling is spoken of in lofty terms. Few outside of those who feel
T2:2.2 spoken of in lofty terms. Few outside of those who feel they have a  calling for something beyond their ordinary, limited, view of
T2:2.2 of themselves use this phrase. But many recognize that they have a  calling even unto things the world considers mundane.
T2:2.4 What bravery it takes in today’s world to follow a  calling to teach. To set aside other careers that offer far more
T2:2.7 unexplainable. Those who seek an explanation before following a  calling, who look for reasons of a practical nature, who would seek
T2:2.9 are is far broader than this simple idea of hearing and following a  calling would indicate. You think what prevents you from being who

T2:4.10 Thus a first step in our work with regard to  calling is recognizing the dualistic nature of your thoughts and
T2:4.11 This requires an examination of your specific notions concerning  calling as you apply them to yourself. Whether you feel that you a

T2:4.18 This is why you do not have to “wait” to hear your  calling even though some of you may feel as if you are in a time of
T2:5.1 one form, as in a call to action. We have talked heretofore about a  calling you feel from within, as if you are listening to a new voice
T2:5.1 that would reveal your talents and desires to you. This type of  calling comes as a light shone into the darkness and is revelatory in
T2:6.1 the treasures that lie within. There is no time in the place we are  calling within and your heart knows not of time even while it adheres
T2:11.15 but you will perceive that such battles exist. You will be prone to  calling upon the Christ as your higher self to defend you against the

T3:4.1 meanness, illness or insanity. It merely calls you to sanity by  calling you to let go of illusion in favor of the truth.
T3:6.5 While the untrue cannot exist with the true, what I am  calling here bitterness is all that you have forced, through sheer
T3:16.2 else or anything less. You do not need to give your effort to this  calling. You do not need to struggle to create the new world you are
T3:20.10 people have as much calamity befall them as do “bad.” I am not  calling you to just another version of being good or mentally
T3:20.10 healthy, to exercises in visualization or positive thinking. I am  calling you to live by the truth and to never deny it. To see no

D:Day10.30 I am not  calling you to be as these people are or were or to act as these

C:7.13 is a relationship—even those as simple as unreturned phone  calls and snarled traffic. You relate to someone or something in
C:13.2 one thing only. This is a simple exercise, and enjoyable too. It but  calls for you to ask one thing: Ask yourself what you already know of

T2:5.1 a light shone into the darkness and is revelatory in nature. Other  calls will come as announcements, signs, or even as seeming demands.
T2:5.2 of communication. If you are not listening, you will not hear the  calls that are meant for you. If you are looking only for a specific

T2:8.4 all calls to know your Self and to act on this knowing. These are  calls to truth and but take the form of honesty for a brief time as
T2:13.5 This is the attitude of the wholehearted, the place from which all  calls are sounded and received, the place where the true thinking of

T3:3.9 are not good enough to be the “good” self you believe this Course  calls you to be. Most of you have now believed you are “good enough”
T3:3.9 for days or hours or moments, but something always and eventually  calls you back to the idea that you are not good enough or that you

T3:4.2 The sameness that this Course  calls you to is not a sameness of body or of habit. It asks not for
T3:15.16 the very nature of the self described by the words human being. This  calls for still more forgetting as you must consciously let go of all
T3:20.16 These  calls go out from love to love. It is not the words of your mouth

T1:3.9 even this you would fear for if you asked for such a miracle and it  came to be, you would then have to contemplate your power to perform
T1:4.27 fear has been associated with God. This was the thinking I  came to reverse. While I succeeded in revealing a God of love, this

T3:2.5 believed in a corresponding cost that was, in essence, a cost that  came at the expense or denigration of the self. You believed that for
T3:2.5 was the belief that with each successful step toward independence  came a corresponding step away from God. As independence seemed to be
T3:4.6 of illusion, the one error that became the basis of all that  came after it. You cannot make another error such as this for it is
T3:5.5 that you have tried need not be repeated, just as the crucifixion  came to end the need to learn through suffering and death.
T3:8.4 this place still believes in its own history and that of those who  came before it. These beliefs hold the seeds of bitterness, the angst

T4:1.19 Many came to know the truth by indirect means and shared what they  came to know through similarly indirect means. This is the nature of

T4:2.4 before me. It was the time of man wandering in the wilderness. I  came as a representation or demonstration of The Way. This is why I

T4:2.8 in a process of evolution that has made you better than those who  came before, you are carrying judgment. While you continue to believe
T4:4.5 This is one of the reasons that I  came in the form of the “son of God.” In the time in which I lived,
T4:4.18 example life could not sustain Christ-consciousness for those who  came after me but could only be an example. What you are called to do

T3:13.3 true meaning by looking beyond the experiences themselves to the  cause.
T3:13.4 it is. But your ability to distinguish between love and fear as  cause is all that is important now as you will create the new
T3:13.10 fact that you have accepted this new idea. Choose an act that will  cause you no fear to begin with. For instance, you might tell
T3:14.5 those who desire great change will find these great changes will not  cause them to be other than who they are. There is nothing wrong with

T3:19.11 acts of those living in illusion because they will be unable to  cause effect in the House of Truth.
T3:20.1 that has to do with effectiveness. Illusion has at its base a false  cause and so no effects that exist in truth. Now, your every thought
T3:20.7 in relationship and that the relationship is meaningful or able to  cause effect. You can’t imagine not feeling “bad” given such

T3:20.10 are never to be confused as such. Your observance is to remain with  cause rather than stray to effect.
T3:20.12 You can no longer return to the house of illusion, not even to  cause explosions within it. You have stepped out of this house and
T3:20.13 observance of the laws of love. Your observance is to remain with  cause rather than to stray to effect, the manner of living practiced
T3:20.13 manner of living practiced by those who have birthed the idea that  cause and effect are one in truth.
T3:21.11 about yourself that few of you have doubted. Those who have had  cause to doubt circumstances of their birth are often consumed with a
T3:21.18 form and cease to be accepted as aspects of your identity. This will  cause your existence to seem to have more of a dualistic nature for a

T4:1.1 It will leave no one out. It will not appeal to fear nor give you  cause for fear. It will not be about tools or tell you that some have
T4:1.3 tried and failed to achieve. These are the types of ideas that will  cause discomfort to many of you as you still find it hard to believe
T4:1.3 in your own chosenness. It is this idea of being chosen that will  cause your mind to conclude that some are not chosen now and that

D:Day3.34 I will try to address you in an in-between tone, one that will not  cause you to feel spoken down to or incite your hostility. One that

D:Day4.51 All, all you cannot bring forward with you is fear, for fear is the  cause of the state of learning. You may have thought separation was

D:Day6.2 away from your “normal” life for forty days and forty nights would  cause too much anxiety and exclude too many, this is not the only, or
D:Day6.7 instinct and encourage even more boldness. Negative reactions might  cause the artist to doubt her instincts, to make changes, or to be

T1:5.7 at its edges, this pushing simply leaves the edges quite intact and  causes them to be capable of offering resistance. Your search for
T1:9.12 way that embracing both the male and female attributes within you  causes a merging of both and a wholeness to be achieved, so too does
T2:4.19 to think of as an ability. As your old way of responding to life  causes you to struggle or resist and the new way of thinking replaces

D:Day14.2 All that causes loneliness is rejection of feelings. All that  causes violence is rejection of feelings.

T3:22.11 The ability to  cease all acts of comparison will arise out of this observation of

C:30.11 The cycle of giving and receiving is thus never complete, and the  certainty you seek always waiting for something you do not yet have—
T2:5.3 an announcement is the call that carries with it no ambiguity. The  certainty of an announcement can alert you that it is time to act.

T3:10.9 behind them revealed. Thoughts of the Christ-mind will hold a  certainty that cannot be disguised. Remember that all doubt is doubt
T3:10.10 You will feel for a while as if constant  certainty is impossible. This feeling will remain only as long as you

T3:16.12 consequences your actions might bring. These fears rob you of your  certainty and result in a lack of trust. The key to resisting these
T3:21.8 This  certainty is antithetical to you. You think that to believe in one

T3:21.20 two aspects to this contradictory seeming answer. One is that your  certainty regarding the identity of your personal self will be useful

T3:22.15 is a pattern of the old thought system that needs to be replaced by  certainty. If you have enjoyed the game of chance, play a real game
T4:1.2 Treatises. But it will do this only to reach a conclusion of  certainty from which you can live.
T4:1.15 will seek to dispel so that you are left with no confusion and only  certainty. The only thing that will dispel this confusion and bring
T4:1.15 The only thing that will dispel this confusion and bring you the  certainty that is needed to create the new world is an understanding
T4:8.16 subjects—so that you can come to this completion and enjoy this  certainty and pride that at least you know all there is to know about
D:2.9 because the patterns of old have at times provided you with a false  certainty that they are difficult to deny. When we speak of denying

D:6.16 is not a call to return to uncertainty, but a call to allow real  certainty to come.
D:6.19 not except to make you see that these attitudes are not ruled by  certainty, but by a mere idea of bettering the odds against what fate
D:9.3 come up with a definition of who you are, a truth of who you are, a  certainty about who you are. You have been led to see that this
D:12.16 Many of you may, as well, have experienced the fading of your  certainty about this truth over time. It may have been your inability
D:12.16 arose within your thinking, but regardless of this fading of your  certainty, you still carry within you the moment of realization—the
D:12.16 or of something that has not yet occurred but that you are given the  certainty to know will occur. But once you have felt this certainty,
D:12.16 given the certainty to know will occur. But once you have felt this  certainty, you will never be so sure again that you cannot know the
D:12.17 anything “beyond a shadow of a doubt,” without knowing anything with  certainty, when the reverse is what is true. It is sane to know the
D:13.1 then discover that you were wrong. You know the difference between  certainty and uncertainty and are far more likely to err, especially
D:Day3.39 spoke of these thoughts you did not think coming with authority and  certainty, a certainty you had previously lacked. When I said earlier
D:Day3.39 thoughts you did not think coming with authority and certainty, a  certainty you had previously lacked. When I said earlier in this
D:Day3.44 is the natural state of unity and thus your natural state, just as  certainty rather than uncertainty is your natural state, just as joy
D:Day3.47 What you have begun to see is that the mind is not the source of  certainty, no matter how much knowledge it attains. What you have
D:Day3.47 to see in similar terms, is that money is also not the source of  certainty, no matter how much it enables you to attain. Certainty, in
D:Day3.47 source of certainty, no matter how much it enables you to attain.  Certainty, in other words, comes from somewhere else. This somewhere
D:Day3.47 the reality of union. Living in this reality, the reality of  certainty, is the only key to abundance.
D:Day4.23 being existing in union before you could know anything else with the  certainty you seek, for union is the treasure that has been locked
D:Day4.46 the self of union all that continues to exist. It will mean peace,  certainty, safety, and joy with no price.
D:Day6.8 even be a commitment simply to practice, with the artist feeling no  certainty about the value of the piece, but determining to see the
D:Day6.23 apprentice is in a position to be able to begin to perform with any  certainty. Even learning is accelerated by hands-on activities, by

D:Day7.21 present that some of you are finding difficult and a false sense of  certainty that some of you may be experiencing. Thus these will be
D:Day8.16 now of accepting yourself in the present and of understanding  certainty. Certainty cannot be predetermined, just as you cannot
D:Day8.16 of accepting yourself in the present and of understanding certainty.  Certainty cannot be predetermined, just as you cannot predetermine
D:Day8.16 Being aware of how you feel in the present moment is the only way to  certainty. Thus to say that you are certain that you do not like
D:Day8.16 that you do not like peas, is an inaccurate use of the term of  certainty. It may have been consistent with the term or word
D:Day8.16 term of certainty. It may have been consistent with the term or word  certainty as it was used in the past, but you will not want to
D:Day8.16 term and the condition. You may think that taking away the type of  certainty associated with the “term” of certainty will cause you to
D:Day8.16 that taking away the type of certainty associated with the “term” of  certainty will cause you to be even less certain than you were
D:Day8.16 but this is highly appropriate and much needed practice for true  certainty.
D:Day8.19 in yourself and others and even to, at times, the false sense of  certainty about your non-acceptance that we have spoken of.
D:Day8.20 When you develop a false sense of  certainty, you see not the true Self and the holiness of the true
D:Day8.21 in the present you know your feelings are of the truth. This is  certainty. This is all that will prevent you from “reacting” to
D:Day9.5 confidence to be yourself. This confidence is what must precede true  certainty in this time of elevation of the self of form. The
D:Day9.5 true certainty in this time of elevation of the self of form. The  certainty that arises from unity is different from this confidence in
D:Day9.5 elevation of the self of form to take place. What good will be the  certainty of unity if the self of form has no confidence in its
D:Day9.5 has no confidence in its ability to express it? Expression of the  certainty of unity is what the elevated Self of form is all about.
D:Day9.5 certainty of unity is what the elevated Self of form is all about.  Certainty of mind and heart has been realized by many. The expression
D:Day9.5 of mind and heart has been realized by many. The expression of that  certainty in form has not.
D:Day9.33 build your confidence. Unity and your access to unity will be your  certainty. Trust in your own abilities—the abilities of the self of
D:Day10.2 See you now why the  certainty of union must be combined with the confidence of the self
D:Day10.2 of union must be combined with the confidence of the self of form?  Certainty is knowing that this power exists. Confidence is the
D:Day10.4 of disbelief and thus releases you from the need for belief.  Certainty is complete lack of doubt and any perceived need for doubt.
D:Day10.5 feelings in connection with the ideas of confidence, reliance, and  certainty.
D:Day10.6 will not be the case for most of you, for the simple reason that the  certainty that comes from union will seem to come, at least
D:Day10.6 come, at least initially, from a place other than the self. Because  certainty seems to come from a place “other than” or beyond the self
D:Day10.6 than” or beyond the self of form because it comes in the form of  certainty.
D:Day10.8 This intuition came as a feeling, but not necessarily as a feeling of  certainty. You may have reacted to the intuition with confidence or
D:Day10.12 the new and the forgotten. This is why it has been said that the  certainty that comes from access to unity may be less difficult for
D:Day10.14 assurances of what you know will lead to either confidence or  certainty is foolish.
D:Day10.15 a moment here and consider our need for a distinction between the  certainty you feel from unity and the confidence you need to feel in
D:Day10.15 need to feel in the self of form. Reflect further on your idea of  certainty coming from a place “other than” the self. Realize in these
D:Day27.2 You have been asked to let go of uncertainty, not  certainty. You have been assured of a certainty you never before
D:Day27.2 to let go of uncertainty, not certainty. You have been assured of a  certainty you never before believed you were capable of. This
D:Day27.2 of a certainty you never before believed you were capable of. This  certainty is beginning to form within you but will not come into its
D:Day27.2 but will not come into its fullness except through experience. This  certainty has only been able to begin to form within you because you

T4:12.14 Why was this so? You eagerly awaited each learning  challenge in the hopes that it would bring you to the state in which
T4:12.14 you to the state in which you now abide! You dreaded each learning  challenge because you feared that it would not bring you to this
D:Day3.4 to growing a bit angry with the beginning of this Course and its  challenge to your ideas regarding love. Most of you approached
D:Day4.17 you already know, that everything about my life was purposeful. That  challenge was meant then, and continues to mean now, a call to a new
D:Day4.17 and continues to mean now, a call to a new choice. It asks that you  challenge your world-view in a most thorough manner.
D:Day4.18 The problem with this throughout the centuries has been a tendency to  challenge one world-view only to replace it with another of no
D:Day4.18 only to replace it with another of no greater truth or value. My  challenge has been reacted to as a challenge to be externalized, a
D:Day4.18 of no greater truth or value. My challenge has been reacted to as a  challenge to be externalized, a call to create a new system. But

T2:4.3 the change of thinking taught within A Course in Miracles was a  change of thinking about yourself. It attempted to dislodge the
T2:4.5 factors. Either way, the result would always be the same; a sudden  change from ease of movement to struggle, from going with the flow to

T2:8.5 that you are not called to a static acceptance that does not include  change, this new idea of acceptance requires further clarification.
T2:8.6 It was said often within A Course of Love that the truth does not  change. Thus the truth of who you are has not changed and you are as

T3:1.7 perhaps, seem like little things—a change in attitude here, a  change in behavior there. But I assure you that these changes are

T3:8.8 you are powerless? How difficult it is to believe that you need not  change the world but only your own self. How difficult to imagine
T3:8.8 world but only your own self. How difficult to imagine that this one  change could bring about all the changes you would imagine that even
T3:9.1 these ideas without accepting their ability to be applied is to  change your beliefs without changing your ideas. This many have done.

T3:10.8 there is another practice that will help you to become aware of this  change. While much the same as forgetting it will seem to have a

T3:12.11 mistakes may occur within creation, remember that creation is about  change and growth. There is no right or wrong within creation but
T3:12.11 no right or wrong within creation but there are stages of growth and  change. Humankind is now passing through a tremendous stage of growth

T3:16.6 if what is now is still awaiting replacement by what will be, is a  change that must occur within. As has already been said, this change
T3:16.6 is a change that must occur within. As has already been said, this  change has to do with the time-bound temptations of the human
T3:16.12 of the truth. This fear relates very strongly to your ideas of  change and as such is the greatest detriment to your new beginning.
T3:20.11 how thorough your learning must be. It is a learning that must not  change to fit the circumstances of illusion but be unchanging to fit
T3:21.9 or in other words, a set of information. These facts are subject to  change and mean one thing to one person and one thing to another.

T3:22.1 living by the truth will take you, for surely your life must  change. The very precepts put forth within this Course, precepts that
T4:1.8 by many, becomes a crisis in education that calls for education to  change. It may signal that what is taught is no longer relevant, or

T3:8.5 who believe in past lives have also often adopted beliefs regarding  choice and believe that choices for suffering were made for some
T3:8.5 made for some greater good or to repay debts of the past. The only  choice that has been made is that of attachment to the human form as

T3:12.8 Let’s return a moment to the  choice that was made for the human experience, the choice to express
T3:12.8 a moment to the choice that was made for the human experience, the  choice to express who you are in the realm of physicality. You were
T3:12.8 of physicality. You were not “better” or more “right” before this  choice was made than you are now. You made a choice consistent with
T3:12.8 “right” before this choice was made than you are now. You made a  choice consistent with the laws of creation and the steps of creation
T3:12.8 laws of creation and the steps of creation outlined above. From this  choice, many experiences ensued. Some of these experiences were the
T3:12.8 experiences were the result of fear, some the result of love. The  choice to express who you are in physical terms was not a choice made
T3:12.8 love. The choice to express who you are in physical terms was not a  choice made of fear but made of love. A physical self is not
T3:12.8 not inconsistent with the laws of God or of creation. It is simply a  choice.
T3:13.7 such as earning and paying. How you implement this idea will be your  choice. But the idea that you do not have to earn your way nor pay

T3:17.1 shown, to have chosen to express the Self in physical form was a  choice consistent with the laws of love. There was no need for the
T3:18.2 ability to observe what the Self expresses, was part of the original  choice for physical form. The word observance has rightly been linked

T4:1.9 There but seems to be a difference in the “educated”  choice and the “uneducated” choice. Many of you may look back on
T4:1.9 to be a difference in the “educated” choice and the “uneducated”  choice. Many of you may look back on choices that you made and say,

T4:1.11 The  choice that lies before you now concerns what it is you would come to
T4:1.11 asked throughout this Course is if you are willing to make the  choice to come to know your Self and God now. This is the same as
T4:1.11 not be otherwise. But at the same time, it must be seen that your  choice matters in time, even if all will make the same choice
T4:1.11 that your choice matters in time, even if all will make the same  choice eventually.
T4:1.14 so much calamity would not have befallen them. And so the idea of  choice rears its head again and wraps the simple statement that All

T4:1.25 that a new experience awaits and that they stand at the threshold of  choice.
T4:3.14 destruction to some, as new life to others. Either way is but your  choice. Your attachment to life has kept you alive in form. Your
T4:3.15 has been fulfilled. It is you who have chosen the means. Now a new  choice is before you.
T4:4.14 to you, the means of life-everlasting will be understood as a  choice. Because there was no relationship save that of intermediaries
T4:4.14 of intermediaries between the human and the divine, there was no  choice but to end the separated state in order to return to unity
T4:4.15 in unity while in human form, you will have no cause, save your own  choice, to leave human form. To abide in unity is to abide in your
T4:4.18 the union of the human and the divine as a new state of being, this  choice will be eternally yours. It will be a choice of your creation,
T4:4.18 state of being, this choice will be eternally yours. It will be a  choice of your creation, a creation devoid of fear. It will be a new
T4:4.18 choice of your creation, a creation devoid of fear. It will be a new  choice.
T4:5.1 Life-everlasting in form is not your only  choice. As many of you believed that I was the Son of God and more

T4:5.13 awareness. Loosed of the body and the body’s limited vision, real  choice has been revealed to those having experienced death. At that
T4:5.13 elevation of the personal self in this time of Christ can be the new  choice.
T4:6.5 unity and relationship in harmony. It excludes no one and no one’s  choice and no one’s vision. Your brothers and sisters who do not

T4:6.6 brothers and sisters, for everyone’s choice. I call you to a new  choice, but not to intolerance of those who are not ready to make it.
T4:6.6 of those who are not ready to make it. I call you to a new  choice with the full realization that your choice alone will affect
T4:6.6 it. I call you to a new choice with the full realization that your  choice alone will affect millions of your brothers and sisters, as

T4:8.1 now beginning to be able to understand that it was God who made this  choice. This was the Creator making a choice. Creation’s response was
T4:8.1 that it was God who made this choice. This was the Creator making a  choice. Creation’s response was the universe, which is an expression
T4:8.1 which is an expression of God’s love, an expression of God’s  choice, a representation of God’s intent.
T4:8.2 without reverting to old ideas of not having had “yourself” any  choice in the matter, or reverting to old ideas of blaming God for

T4:8.2 of all for life everlasting and life ever-expressing. It was the  choice for creation, for creation is the expression of love.
T4:9.9 your sharing of the same may find it difficult to leave it behind. A  choice made by you to stay with learning rather than to move beyond
T4:9.9 learning rather than to move beyond it would be an understandable  choice, but you are needed now. Needed to help establish the covenant
T4:12.28 because you abide in a consciousness of unity through your  choice.
D:6.4 false representation of the ego as the self, the body, given your  choice to return to who you truly are while still in form, continues,

D:Day2.23 The example was that of a symbolic gesture. It, too, was a choice. A  choice to take all that suffering upon myself and kill it. To say,

D:Day4.45 This is real choice. What is a  choice that leads not to difference of any kind? These are the only

T3:20.1 truth. Now, your every thought and action will have effect, and the  choices that lie before you will be choices of where your thoughts
T3:20.1 action will have effect, and the choices that lie before you will be  choices of where your thoughts and actions will have the greatest
T4:1.9 choice and the “uneducated” choice. Many of you may look back on  choices that you made and say, “I would have chosen differently if I

C:29.19 this choice before now. Now I tell you clearly, the choice is yours.  Choose once again.
C:29.20 but it cannot prevent you from claiming this choice as your own.  Choose anew and let the power of heaven come together to seal the

T1:3.9 a miracle at all, which many of you will balk at doing, you want to  choose the “right” miracle. Some of you may think through just what

T1:4.16 My request to you to  choose a miracle is but a request to you to hear Creation’s response

T4:12.29 You do not have to  choose to share, because you cannot not share. You do not have to

D:8.13 as if you have taken that step and yet remain unchanged. When you  choose to take this step it is taken. What you will become aware of
D:16.9 way that is and what is lies in choice. While you think that you can  choose to stand apart from God, apart from Love, apart from Creation,
D:16.9 Creation, you cannot. But you can, while existing in time and form,  choose to stand apart from movement, being, and expression. You can

D:Day3.22 to what you can accomplish, to how you can live the life you would  choose to live. You may have left behind aspirations of wealth, and

C:P.11 good person, you are accepting ministry to those in hell rather than  choosing heaven. You accept what you view as possible and reject what
C:P.14 awakened but still are caught in the nightmare your ego has made. By  choosing to reject yourself you have chosen to try to make sense of
C:P.16 your back and sighed, looking back on a world familiar to you, and  choosing it instead. You do not see that this choice, even made with
C:P.16 hell when you could instead have chosen heaven. Yet you know that  choosing heaven is the only true way to change the world. It is the

C:4.20 now. It may not be what love is, but what love is has guided you in  choosing to set love apart from what you call the real world, from

C:10.20 to be made. Yet if the separated self can look back and see that it  chose being right over being happy, it will congratulate itself
C:11.18 the unity you seek. In having chosen separation over unity, you but  chose fear over love. When you let go of fear and invite unity to
C:12.21 had no ability to be more than what it was, except for as the son  chose to participate in it.
C:18.15 which unity can be experienced. Obviously, this is up to you. As you  chose to create a state of separation, you must choose to create a
C:20.31 in a universe of fear. You set the laws of the universe when you  chose fear. The laws of the universe of love are God-given.
C:29.19 As you once  chose separation you can now choose unity. Not knowing that unity was
T3:2.3 While we have said you  chose the separation, it has not been said that this choice was the
T3:2.3 said that this choice was the choice it has been made to seem. You  chose to represent yourself in a new way, to express yourself in a
T3:2.3 expand awareness, through relationship, of self and others. You  chose a means of creation—as God chose a means of creation. That
T3:2.3 of self and others. You chose a means of creation—as God  chose a means of creation. That means of creation is separation,
T3:2.5 in logic, but the logic of the illusion—in which you believed you  chose to separate from God out of defiance and a desire to be one
T3:2.12 what the cost. This discussion merely examined the reality you  chose to believe in, the reality of an ego-self, a self-concept
T4:3.7 effort to weigh love’s strength against fear’s veracity. While you  chose to believe and live in a world the nature of which was fear,
T4:5.12 after your death. It was formerly only after your death that you  chose direct revelation by God. Think about this now and you will see
T4:8.1 “you” or some species without form who at some point in time  chose to express love in physical form, and so began this experience
T4:8.9 God always knew what your mind  chose to rebel against: that creation is perfect. Your mind, being of
T4:8.9 being of God, was constrained by the learning limits of the body and  chose to rebel against the learning that was needed in order to come
D:8.8 What was learned was only able to be learned because you  chose to become the wholehearted. You chose to join mind and heart
D:8.8 able to be learned because you chose to become the wholehearted. You  chose to join mind and heart and it was done. But you do not yet know
D:Day2.24 “I” did not suffer, for I knew who I was and  chose no suffering. This is what is meant by the idea that has been
D:Day27.12 words, separate from it because of the degree of separation that you  chose. Because you never chose union, or wholeness, you did not
D:Day27.12 of the degree of separation that you chose. Because you never  chose union, or wholeness, you did not experience lack of body
D:Day36.5 fact. The story of your life, in short, would be a story of how you  chose to respond, day-in and day-out, to the world around you. You,

C:P.16 a difference, is still a choice for hell when you could instead have  chosen heaven. Yet you know that choosing heaven is the only true way
C:P.20 yourself. You prefer selflessness to self because this is your  chosen way to abolish ego and to please God. This is not unlike the
C:1.18 to accept love or to reject it and choose fear. Both cannot be  chosen. All feelings you label joyous or compassionate are of love.
C:2.3 are but two from which you choose: love and fear. Because you have  chosen fear so many times and labeled it so many things you no longer
C:3.7 can the world be anything but symbolic, with each symbol’s meaning  chosen by you and for you. Nothing is what it is, but only what it is
C:4.8 to own, the need to keep, the grasping call, the driving force, the  chosen passion—all these things that you have made to replace what
C:4.13 Thus, your image of love is based upon comparison. You have  chosen one who demonstrates that which in you is most lacking and you
C:4.16 and not to others. You hope to be a winner in this game you play, a  chosen one who will have each ounce of love that is given returned in
C:5.22 Your entire resistance to God is based on this. You think you have  chosen to be separate from God so that you can make it on your own,
C:5.24 achieved it. Yet you think when this occurs that you have simply  chosen the wrong thing and so choose another and another, not
C:6.11 is a mountain left to climb, why choose heaven? Surely it can be  chosen later when disease has taken your limbs’ use from your control
C:7.9 the vault is your own heart, or that the truth is what you have  chosen to keep secure and set aside there. When you believe that this
C:7.11 for yourself from the world. A grievance is something you have  chosen for yourself, a piece of a relationship separated off and held
C:7.11 treated you so badly? You withhold even a smile, because you have  chosen grievances over love.
C:9.4 and that all things happen in relationship. Thus you have  chosen to use relationship to prove your existence and to make things
C:10.22 fears of any other kind of existence. That an option could be  chosen that leaves no room for fear at all does not occur to it, for
C:11.11 do with your free will matters not to God at all, for what you have  chosen to use it for is the one thing that it cannot provide—your
C:11.12 from Him—something that could never truly occur—you have  chosen instead to do nothing at all with your free will but make this
C:11.18 your relationship with love. Love is the unity you seek. In having  chosen separation over unity, you but chose fear over love. When you
C:15.12 before you. No, this is not an easy choice, or it would have been  chosen long ago and saved much suffering and put an end to hell. But
C:17.10 belief in sin—or in other words, your belief that what you have  chosen is not reversible.
C:20.41 and you will see that what you would call your imperfections are as  chosen and as dear to you as all the rest.
C:26.2 of you question the line between fate and accomplishment. Are some  chosen for greatness? Others for mediocrity?
C:28.4 sought through bearing witness is a symptom of distrust. Few are  chosen to be prophets, and the plethora of testimony taking place is
T1:7.2 suffering. This acceptance is due to the belief that spirit has  chosen a form, and more accurately put a “lesser” form in which to
T1:10.6 open hearts and minds to the divine presence within. You have  chosen them for just this reason. But you can now be an observer and
T1:10.12 that we are talking of leaving behind are extremes of reaction to a  chosen lesson. What you are being asked to leave behind is the need
T1:10.13 This is what you have believed and why you have not  chosen yet to accept your inheritance. Yet let the memory of the
T2:3.2 must do is wholeheartedly recognize the treasure you have already  chosen to bring to the world. Your heart speaks to you of this
T2:10.16 for certain circumstances that would be quickly put behind you or  chosen for specific outcomes. While many love to learn for the sake
T2:10.18 What are your plans and dreams but  chosen lessons? While you do not think of them as such you do not
T2:10.18 When life does not go as you have planned, you feel as if your  chosen path has been denied to you. You often feel a sense of loss
T2:10.18 experiences or opportunities that would not have arisen had your  chosen plan come to fruition.
T2:10.19 not for you to choose a lesson plan, but to let life itself be your  chosen way of learning.
T2:11.12 understanding the truth of these statements. For even while you have  chosen separation, this choice did not preclude the existence of
T3:1.11 future. The personal self you presented to others in the past was a  chosen self and never a whole self as evidenced by the variety of
T3:2.11 done so. How many times have you asked yourself why you would have  chosen separation if there had not been a reason for you to do so?
T3:3.2 that has served the ego faithfully. All of your traits have been  chosen either in accordance with the ego’s desires or in opposition
T3:6.4 beginning with the idea of your abandonment here. Since the ego is a  chosen self and a learned self, there has always been just enough
T3:6.5 of some, but even being that it is just another word, it is one  chosen to introduce an idea of such fallacy that it rivals only the
T3:7.6 Illusion has been to you like a house with many doors. You have  chosen many doors to the same house and but thought them to offer
T3:8.7 the idea of love can replace the idea of suffering but it is  chosen not because of the suffering that seems to make no sense of
T3:11.12 not a hell to which anyone has been banished. It can at times be a  chosen hell, just as it can at times be a chosen heaven. Choice and
T3:11.12 It can at times be a chosen hell, just as it can at times be a  chosen heaven. Choice and the awareness of the power of choice that
T3:14.6 be required to take, worry not! The changes that come to you will be  chosen changes. You will lose nothing you would keep.
T3:14.11 causes for vengeance and blame. The suffering that has been  chosen has been mighty. The choice now is not a choice to explore the
T3:15.1 a new relationship. Others, in a similar relationship, might have  chosen to let the past go and enter into new relationships. Parents
T3:17.1 Why would you ever have  chosen to obscure the truth? As we have already shown, to have chosen
T3:17.1 have chosen to obscure the truth? As we have already shown, to have  chosen to express the Self in physical form was a choice consistent
T3:17.3 because there became a need for a beginning and an ending to the  chosen experience. Thus each self of form is born into time and each
T3:17.4 of the “time” it takes for learning to occur. A new experience was  chosen—the experience of existing within the realm of physicality.
T3:20.18 never meant to rest upon you even if it is one you might have freely  chosen. Your task is to create the new world and make it observable,
T3:21.15 the world you live in and the “type” of person you feel you have  chosen to be within that world. Whether you have given thought to the
T4:1.3 and particularly in your own chosenness. It is this idea of being  chosen that will cause your mind to conclude that some are not chosen
T4:1.3 being chosen that will cause your mind to conclude that some are not  chosen now and that many were not chosen in the past.
T4:1.3 mind to conclude that some are not chosen now and that many were not  chosen in the past.
T4:1.4 of them incorrect, there are some answers that are not offered to be  chosen because they do not relate to the question. All of the
T4:1.5 has been asked and a response is awaited. Are you willing to be  chosen? Are you willing to be the chosen of God? All are asked. What
T4:1.5 is awaited. Are you willing to be chosen? Are you willing to be the  chosen of God? All are asked. What is your answer?
T4:1.6 Why, you might ask, is a word such as  chosen used, when many other words would do, and when the concept of
T4:1.6 used, when many other words would do, and when the concept of being  chosen is one laden with so many false ideas about exclusivity? I am
T4:1.6 of its use historically. Many different groups believe they are the  chosen people of God, or Buddha, or Muhammad. Many of this generation
T4:1.6 or Buddha, or Muhammad. Many of this generation believe they are a  chosen generation. Neither way of thinking is wrong. All are chosen.
T4:1.6 are a chosen generation. Neither way of thinking is wrong. All are  chosen.
T4:1.7 to go to school. This might be as easily stated as all are  chosen for schooling. Some might look at this as lack of choice,
T4:1.9 of you may look back on choices that you made and say, “I would have  chosen differently if I had but known” this or that. The choice is
T4:1.9 such. No choice ever excludes anyone from coming to know his or her  chosen lesson.
T4:1.10 learn through what is not of the curriculum because they have  chosen another means of learning. Means is what is being spoken of
T4:1.10 means are for one end. All will learn the same content, for all are  chosen; and all learning, no matter what the means, will eventually
T4:1.11 now. This is the same as being asked if you are willing to be the  chosen of God. This is the same question that has been asked
T4:1.11 that has been asked throughout the existence of time. Some have  chosen to come to know themselves and God directly. Others have
T4:1.11 have chosen to come to know themselves and God directly. Others have  chosen to come to know themselves and God indirectly. These are the
T4:1.11 Self and God, as no choices are offered that are not such. All are  chosen and so it could not be otherwise. But at the same time, it
T4:1.12 Does this sound exclusive to you? The embrace is inclusive. All are  chosen.
T4:1.14 The only alternative would seem to be that this must be simply the  chosen time and you the chosen people. If the chosen time had been
T4:1.14 seem to be that this must be simply the chosen time and you the  chosen people. If the chosen time had been two thousand years ago,
T4:1.14 must be simply the chosen time and you the chosen people. If the  chosen time had been two thousand years ago, life would have been
T4:1.14 life would have been different since then. If Jesus Christ were the  chosen one, his life would have changed the world. If the Israelites
T4:1.14 his life would have changed the world. If the Israelites were the  chosen people, so much calamity would not have befallen them. And so
T4:1.14 rears its head again and wraps the simple statement that All Are  Chosen in confusion.
T4:1.17 choice of a means of coming to know the truth has shifted. All were  chosen and all are chosen.
T4:1.17 of coming to know the truth has shifted. All were chosen and all are  chosen.
T4:1.18 completed God’s act of choosing you by choosing God. This is all the  chosen people are in time—those who have chosen God as God has
T4:1.18 God. This is all the chosen people are in time—those who have  chosen God as God has chosen them. That you have chosen God and
T4:1.18 the chosen people are in time—those who have chosen God as God has  chosen them. That you have chosen God and chosen a new means of
T4:1.18 —those who have chosen God as God has chosen them. That you have  chosen God and chosen a new means of coming to know the truth—the
T4:1.18 have chosen God as God has chosen them. That you have chosen God and  chosen a new means of coming to know the truth—the means of
T4:1.19 done you a great service. With the means they had available—in the  chosen means of a chosen consciousness united in oneness with the

T4:2.7 any other is not speaking the truth. This is why we began with the  chosen and will return again and again to the statement that all are
T4:2.7 chosen and will return again and again to the statement that all are  chosen.
T4:2.8 you are carrying judgment. While you continue to believe that being  chosen means that some are not chosen, you are carrying judgment.
T4:2.8 you continue to believe that being chosen means that some are not  chosen, you are carrying judgment. While you continue to believe that
T4:2.9 of this time as a time of judgment and of separating the  chosen people from all others abound. All are chosen. All are chosen
T4:2.9 and of separating the chosen people from all others abound. All are  chosen. All are chosen with love and without judgment.
T4:2.9 the chosen people from all others abound. All are chosen. All are  chosen with love and without judgment.
T4:2.10 this new time will separate you from others, or cause you, as the  chosen, to be separate, you will not become fully aware of the new
T4:2.14 you, because of the patterns of the past, to believe that you are  chosen to be the pioneers into a new time without believing that you
T4:2.14 the lack of specialness implied in the statement that all are  chosen, is through your observation of yourself.
T4:2.15 what the Self expresses was among the original reasons for this  chosen experience. Observe now the expressions of the self you are
T4:2.17 are and know your power. You must see as I see and see that all are  chosen.
T4:3.4 intent is synonymous with cause. The original intent of this  chosen experience was the expression of the Self of love in
T4:3.15 promise. It is a promise that has been fulfilled. It is you who have  chosen the means. Now a new choice is before you.
T4:5.13 of the body by death. Being loosed of the body by death was the  chosen means of the time of the intermediary, the chosen means of
T4:5.13 by death was the chosen means of the time of the intermediary, the  chosen means of attaining Christ-consciousness and direct revelation.
T4:6.3 Those who believe that only some will be  chosen can create a scenario in which it appears that some are chosen
T4:6.3 be chosen can create a scenario in which it appears that some are  chosen and some are not. Those who believe that life-everlasting

T4:6.8 to unity. Accept no separation. Accept all choices. Thus are all  chosen in the fullness of time.
T4:8.7 learning process. A learning process that was as known to you and  chosen by you as it was by God, because you and God are one.
T4:8.11 to see it as such. Your rebellion was not allowed, it was mutually  chosen. Just as, as a parent, you come to see that you cannot fight a
T4:12.29 do not have to continually choose unity, because you have already  chosen unity and abide there. You do, however, have to refrain from
D:Day1.4 ways, have many male friends, teachers, guides. It means that one is  chosen as a mate to the exclusion of others chosen as a mate.
D:Day1.4 It means that one is chosen as a mate to the exclusion of others  chosen as a mate.
D:Day1.6 left behind the state of the initiate, the time of waiting. You have  chosen. You are merely asked now to look at what you have chosen and
D:Day1.6 You have chosen. You are merely asked now to look at what you have  chosen and to understand what you inherit through the secret of
D:Day4.48 our dialogue so that you know more of the difference you have  chosen. Once this difference is wholly known to you, we will begin
D:Day4.53 unity, love is all that is required. Acceptance has been the means  chosen, by us, to move you through the layers of illusion that have
D:Day5.9 as part of your body, it will be helpful to have identified this  chosen access point for unity even while remembering it is not of the
D:Day5.21 can return more specifically to our focus on access. Wherever your  chosen point of access lies, imagine now the needle that was
D:Day5.21 and imagine the point of intersection connecting with your  chosen access point. Imagine this now, not as a needle but as the
D:Day6.2 too many, this is not the only, or even the major reason for this  chosen method.
D:Day6.3 can continue to expand on your awareness of the difference you have  chosen, we thus must address this time so that any confusion it seems
D:Day14.1 by calling on wholeness, accepting the healed self’s ability to be  chosen while not encountering resistance or any attempts at rejection
D:Day16.4 as rejected feelings, feelings about which consciousness was not  chosen. With this rejection, these feelings became physical. What is
D:Day18.7 demonstrating the same thing. The way in which you do this must be  chosen, and for this choice to be made with full consciousness, you

C:P.6 dominion and that of spirit? What recognizes the difference? The  Christ in you.
C:P.7 It is easy to imagine how the  Christ in you differs from your ego but not as easy to recognize how
C:P.7 in you differs from your ego but not as easy to recognize how the  Christ in you differs from spirit. The Christ in you is that which is
C:P.7 as easy to recognize how the Christ in you differs from spirit. The  Christ in you is that which is capable of learning in human form what
C:P.7 of learning in human form what it means to be a child of God. The  Christ in you is that which is capable of bridging the two worlds.
C:P.7 the two worlds. This is what is meant by the second coming of  Christ.
C:P.8 The ego is what you made.  Christ is what God made. The ego is your extension of who you think
C:P.8 what God made. The ego is your extension of who you think you are.  Christ is God’s extension of who He is. In order to end the need for

C:P.24 world is not. God is patient for God sees you only as you are. The  Christ in you is also still and ever present. But the weakening done
C:P.25 that threatens even the most astute of learners is through the  Christ in you, through the One who knows what it is to be God’s child
C:P.25 and show you the false from the true, your recognition of the  Christ in you is proper in this time of identification of your
C:P.27 the human race there is a story about the coming of God’s son, Jesus  Christ, who was born, grew into a man, died and rose again to live on
C:P.36 Jesus, united with the  Christ in you, is he who can teach you who you are and how to live as
C:P.37 power and so brought the power of heaven to earth. This is what the  Christ in you can teach you to do. This is miracle-mindedness. This
C:P.38 This is oneness. The  Christ in you teaches only in the sense of imparting knowledge that
C:P.38 are accomplished. Because you are complete. But if your joining with  Christ is the accomplishment and completion of all lessons, who is he
C:P.39 The  Christ in you is your shared identity. This shared identity made
C:P.39 is your shared identity. This shared identity made Jesus one with  Christ. The two names mean the same thing, as oneness is what was
C:P.39 was always shared and always will be. You are eternally one with  Christ. The only way you can identify Jesus differently is to relate
C:2.10 Your real Self is the  Christ in you. How could it be anything but love, or see with eyes
C:2.10 that walks this earth that does not weep at what it sees. Yet the  Christ in you does not weep, for the Christ in you sees with eyes of
C:2.10 weep at what it sees. Yet the Christ in you does not weep, for the  Christ in you sees with eyes of love. The difference is the eyes of
C:2.15 to the present. Look within to the one in you who knows the way.  Christ is within you and you rest within God. I vowed to never leave
C:3.4 you only can imagine. To seek the “face” of God, even in the form of  Christ, is to seek for what is forever without form. To truly see is
C:3.6 light that comes only to eyes that no longer see, you will find the  Christ who abides in you. In Jesus Christ, the Son of God became the
C:3.6 no longer see, you will find the Christ who abides in you. In Jesus  Christ, the Son of God became the son of man. He walked the world
C:3.6 And yet you know this was not Jesus, nor is this a picture of the  Christ. Jesus gave a face to love, as you do here as well. But love
C:3.16 light shines from within our heart, our altar to the Lord. Here the  Christ in us abides and here we concentrate our energies and our

C:8.4 deepest part of you, from the center in which you are joined with  Christ. It speaks of no experiences here, wears no faces, and bears
C:9.18 fear is what blocks the vision of your heart, the light the  Christ in you would shine upon the darkness. Can you not see that
C:10.4 Self, the altar to your Creator, the Self you share in unity with  Christ. Christ is the “part” of God that resides in you, not in
C:10.4 the altar to your Creator, the Self you share in unity with Christ.  Christ is the “part” of God that resides in you, not in separation
C:10.15 and after I rose again? This is rightly called the mystery of faith:  Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again. What is
C:10.15 again? This is rightly called the mystery of faith: Christ has died,  Christ has risen, Christ will come again. What is missing from this
C:10.15 called the mystery of faith: Christ has died, Christ has risen,  Christ will come again. What is missing from this recitation? Christ
C:10.15 risen, Christ will come again. What is missing from this recitation?  Christ was born. Nowhere in the mystery of faith is it stated that
C:10.15 Christ was born. Nowhere in the mystery of faith is it stated that  Christ became a body.
C:12.9 Your Self rests totally unchanged within the  Christ in you. Re-establishing your relationship with your brother is
C:12.14 brother who made this choice for all, and you are reunited with the  Christ in you.
C:14.31 For your refusal to give up specialness is your refusal of the  Christ in you and a refusal of love itself.
C:19.4 returned to your awareness, for this unification returns you to the  Christ in you and the one mind united with God which you have never
C:19.7 each and every one of your brothers and sisters, for in each is the  Christ available to be seen and experienced as it was from me. It is
C:19.12 belief. They were then reunited with me as they were united with the  Christ. You thus must learn to see yourself as you see your brothers
C:19.20 My brothers and sisters in  Christ, do not become impatient now. We are on the home stretch and
C:20.13 has been overcome with oneness. Oneness prevails. The reign of  Christ is at hand.
C:20.14 not be here. Yet you think not of me living and imagine it not.  Christ reigns in the kingdom in which I live just as Christ reigned
C:20.14 imagine it not. Christ reigns in the kingdom in which I live just as  Christ reigned within me on earth. In the cave on this earth where my
C:20.14 on earth. In the cave on this earth where my dead body was laid, the  Christ in me returned me to the embrace. The singular heartbeat of
C:20.17 a thing, as you are not a thing. Your identity is shared and one in  Christ. A shared identity is a quality of oneness. A shared identity
C:20.17 oneness. A shared identity is one identity. When you identify with  Christ you identify with the one identity. When you realize the
C:20.17 When you realize the oneness of your identity you will be one with  Christ. Christ is synonymous with oneness.
C:20.17 realize the oneness of your identity you will be one with Christ.  Christ is synonymous with oneness.

C:27.9 The thought of God by which you were created is synonymous with the  Christ in you. It is your relationship with your Source and all that

T1:6.9 Self. It heralds the return of heaven through the second coming of  Christ, the energy that will bridge the two worlds.
T1:7.4 even though I have stated that the time of the second coming of  Christ is here. I have said that the time of parables has ended and
T1:8.5 once occupied, it returned me to you in the form of the resurrected  Christ who exists in all of you, bringing resurrection even unto your
T1:8.6 This is in effect the way in which the man Jesus became the  Christ. This is in effect the way.
T1:8.16 birth. My mother, Mary, was responsible for the incarnation of  Christ in me as I am responsible for the incarnation of Christ in
T1:8.16 of Christ in me as I am responsible for the incarnation of  Christ in you. This union of the male and female is but union of the
T1:9.8 to facilitate for you this receiving or communion. Only through the  Christ within you does this giving and receiving become one in truth.
T1:9.9 new form would exist within you; that you would become the Body of  Christ and giving and receiving would be complete.
T1:9.10 You are the Body of  Christ.
T1:9.11 and a time of miracles. It will mean that you are the living Body of  Christ.
T1:10.14 to the art of thought, the description of heaven, the abode of  Christ. Peace has come to you and you to Peace.
T1:10.15 that is our eternal home. Welcome home my brothers and sisters in  Christ. Welcome home.
T2:3.3 being actually resides. Remember always that your heart is where the  Christ in you abides and that the Christ is your identity. Remember
T2:3.3 that your heart is where the Christ in you abides and that the  Christ is your identity. Remember that it is the Christ in you that
T2:3.3 abides and that the Christ is your identity. Remember that it is the  Christ in you that learns and raises learning to the holiest of
T2:3.3 that learns and raises learning to the holiest of levels. It is the  Christ in you that learns to walk the earth as child of God, as who
T2:3.4 to now for a specific reason. While the truth that it is the  Christ in you that learns may have been given little attention as you
T2:3.6 If you still balk at the idea that the  Christ could be in need of learning, then your idea of the Christ is
T2:3.6 that the Christ could be in need of learning, then your idea of the  Christ is still based on an old way of thinking, as are your ideas of
T2:3.8 In this same way, then,  Christ can be seen as the seed of your identity. Christ is the
T2:3.8 same way, then, Christ can be seen as the seed of your identity.  Christ is the continuous and on-going expansion of the same thought
T2:3.8 of the same thought of love that brought life into existence.  Christ is your identity in the broadest sense imaginable. Christ is
T2:3.8 existence. Christ is your identity in the broadest sense imaginable.  Christ is your identity within the unity that is creation.
T2:6.8 changes, you exist fully accomplished within the seed that is the  Christ in you even while you continue to grow and change. Physical
T2:6.10 so that you exist—even within form—as the only Son of God, the  Christ, the word made flesh. Remember that the phrase, the Son of
T2:6.10 made flesh. Remember that the phrase, the Son of God, and the name  Christ, but represent the original creation and are not to be
T2:6.10 are not to be mistaken for heavenly deities separate from you. The  Christ is your Self as you were created and remain. The Christ is the
T2:6.10 you. The Christ is your Self as you were created and remain. The  Christ is the accomplished Self.
T2:10.8 The access to what seems to lie beyond your ability lies in the  Christ in you. You might think of the ego as the hand that swats away
T2:10.10 You forget constantly that the  Christ in you is the learner here. What need is there for a computer
T2:10.13 The  Christ in you is the real you. The Christ in you is the Self who you
T2:10.13 The Christ in you is the real you. The  Christ in you is the Self who you become when you have united heart
T2:10.13 in which you are able to learn. I am here to show you the way to the  Christ in you. I began my teaching by appealing to your heart so as
T2:10.15 it is realized that it is hard for you to believe that the  Christ in you is in need of learning. Think a moment of why this
T2:10.19 The  Christ in you has no need to plan. A need to come to know, yes. But a
T2:10.19 to plan. A need to come to know, yes. But a need to plan, no. The  Christ in you needs not for you to choose a lesson plan, but to let
T2:11.1 The  Christ in you is relationship. As you were told within the pages of A
T2:11.10 and your world will be difficult you are listening to your ego. The  Christ in you knows not of difficulty.
T2:11.11 How can it be that we speak both of the  Christ in you and of Christ as being relationship itself? How can it
T2:11.11 How can it be that we speak both of the Christ in you and of  Christ as being relationship itself? How can it be that we have
T2:11.11 as being relationship itself? How can it be that we have spoken of  Christ being both wholly human and wholly divine? These statements
T2:11.14 Here that relationship is being called  Christ in order to keep the holiness and importance of this
T2:11.15 and forms. There will never actually be a battle going on between  Christ and the ego, but you will perceive that such battles exist.
T2:11.15 that such battles exist. You will be prone to calling upon the  Christ as your higher self to defend you against the ego-self. This
T2:11.15 you need defense against or saving from. This is how the notion of  Christ as savior arose. This is the belief in a good self and a bad
T2:11.15 savior arose. This is the belief in a good self and a bad self with  Christ acting as conscience and defender of good and the ego acting
T2:12.9 but a third something, this is what we speak of here again. If  Christ is relationship, and if the Christ in you is the real you,
T2:12.9 what we speak of here again. If Christ is relationship, and if the  Christ in you is the real you, then this all-encompassing
T2:12.11 of many factors, one no more important than another. While the  Christ in you has been compared to the seed of all you are, what you
T2:12.11 of all you are, what you have had revealed to you here is that the  Christ is also the relationship of all that would bring the seed to
T3:1.12 accomplished. As has already been said, the accomplished Self is the  Christ. Your remembrance of the Christ-Self has abolished the
T3:6.5 false idea that has entered this holiest of places, this abode of  Christ, this bridge between the human and the divine. It exists not
T3:6.6 itself behind. Bring bitterness no longer to the dwelling place of  Christ and we will seal the place of its entrance with the sweetness
T3:14.14 with the rebirth of a Self of love. It begins with the birth of  Christ in you and in your willingness to live in the world as the
T3:15.13 did was bypass the way of learning of the ego and call upon the  Christ in you to learn anew. That learning put an end to the old.
T3:17.7 of the Holy Spirit has ended and the time of the second coming of  Christ is here. The name of Christ was associated with my name, the
T3:17.7 and the time of the second coming of Christ is here. The name of  Christ was associated with my name, the name Jesus, because I lived
T3:17.8 and this is that end point for the time of illusion. The return of  Christ, or your ability and willingness to live as your true Self, to
T3:19.15 bid them join you in the reality of the truth. But in this time of  Christ, a new time, a time without parallel or comparison, this will
T3:20.15 My dear brothers and sisters in  Christ, let nothing call you to return to the ways of old. They do
T3:21.21 While this has been called the time of  Christ, it is obviously no longer the time of Jesus Christ. My time
T3:21.21 the time of Christ, it is obviously no longer the time of Jesus  Christ. My time came and my time ended. The time when a single baby
T4:1.14 years ago, life would have been different since then. If Jesus  Christ were the chosen one, his life would have changed the world. If
T4:1.17 the difference between the time of the Holy Spirit and the time of  Christ. This has also been restated as the difference between the
T4:1.24 Many not yet grown to maturity have been born into the time of  Christ, and do not fit within the time or the consciousness of the
T4:1.26 Those born into the time of  Christ will settle for nothing less than the truth and will soon
T4:1.27 soon all who remain on earth will be those born into the time of  Christ.
T4:5.2 your accomplishment with that of all others and become the body of  Christ.
T4:5.5 you. It is you and all who exist with you. It is the body of  Christ. It is like unto what the water of the ocean is to the living
T4:5.6 can thus be seen as the All of everything and life, or the Body of  Christ, as all that makes up the seemingly individual parts of the
T4:5.7 from your body, or other than your body, you are part of the body of  Christ, the body of energy that makes up the universe.
T4:5.10 of who you truly are. To know your Self as my brother or sister in  Christ; to be the Body of Christ.
T4:5.10 know your Self as my brother or sister in Christ; to be the Body of  Christ.
T4:5.13 will continue. The same is true right now! For this is the time of  Christ and thus of your ability to choose Christ-consciousness, the
T4:5.13 revelation. The elevation of the personal self in this time of  Christ can be the new choice.
T4:6.4 In this time of  Christ, this time of direct revelation and direct sharing, the
T4:6.8 the unequalled opportunity now, because you exist in the Time of  Christ, to directly share Christ-consciousness and thus sustain
T4:7.2 That you are living in the time of  Christ does not mean that you will automatically realize
T4:7.2 the indirect means that were available to you, during the time of  Christ, your understanding of your Self and God cannot help but grow
T4:7.2 the spirit was available to all as intermediary, during the time of  Christ, Christ-consciousness is available to all.
T4:7.5 judgment remains in you. Why? Because it is not in the nature of  Christ, it is not in the nature of the Christ-Self to know fear or
T4:11.3 Can I teach you to do this? My dear brothers and sisters in  Christ, as you once willingly resigned as your own teacher, I now
T4:11.5 be regarded as the equal sharing between brothers and sisters in  Christ, the sharing of fellow creators in unity and relationship.
T4:12.1 Welcome, my new brothers and sisters in  Christ, to the creation of the future through the sustainability of
T4:12.18 sharing in unity and relationship with your brothers and sisters in  Christ?
D:1.1 Dear Brothers and Sisters in  Christ,
D:1.11 and finally consumed—taken into the Self of union. The body of  Christ becomes real through this indwelling of Christ in form.
D:1.11 of union. The body of Christ becomes real through this indwelling of  Christ in form.
D:1.14 I am no longer the personal self who was separate and alone. I am my  Christ Self. I dwell in unity. My identity is certain. This is the
D:1.23 would realize that your Self is all there is. We are one body, one  Christ. We are one Self.
D:1.27 love and unity in which we truly exist together, as one body, one  Christ, one Self.
D:2.23 your agreement to bring heaven to earth and to usher in the reign of  Christ. To usher in is to show the way, to cast your palms upon the
D:3.2 My dear brothers and sisters in  Christ, this is the call you have heard for as long as you can
D:3.6 love and fear, sickness and health, life and death. In this time of  Christ, such learning is no longer necessary, and so these conditions
D:3.15 You are a representation of all of your brothers and sisters in  Christ. You are a representation of the truth. You are a
D:3.18 is also newly the Self. The body is also, newly, one body, one  Christ.
D:3.23 needed for the creation of the Covenant of the New in this time of  Christ.
D:4.31 Dear brothers and sisters in  Christ, I hear your protests and the reasons that you feel must
D:5.14 In this time of  Christ, we are not called to recreate the “tools” of learning but to
D:6.24 as you have already called upon the body to accept the indwelling of  Christ. You have replaced the personal self, the self of learning,
D:7.14 the particular to the universal by loving all. We are one body, one  Christ.
D:7.18 or the state of Christ-consciousness. By becoming one body, one  Christ, you have accepted existence as a non-particular being in a
D:7.23 Everyone knows, in this time of  Christ, that the end of the old way is near and that the new is
D:10.7 In this time of  Christ, discovery is about acceptance of your true way of knowing, a
D:12.12 with unity more and more frequently, until finally you will sustain  Christ consciousness and live in the world as the elevated Self of
D:12.19 one of oneness, include you. We are, in unity, one body. We are, in  Christ consciousness, one Christ. We are, in wholeheartedness, one
D:12.19 We are, in unity, one body. We are, in Christ consciousness, one  Christ. We are, in wholeheartedness, one heart and one mind.
D:13.2 the state of unity, from a state you share with all at the level of  Christ consciousness but that may literally not be sharable with
D:13.6 Once you have attained a state of being able to sustain  Christ consciousness, this will no longer be a problem because you
D:13.7 as it did those of the past because you are living in the time of  Christ, a time when no intermediaries are needed or required. Thus
D:13.8 others who are experiencing the expanding awareness of the time of  Christ, and you will begin to see the evidence that things are
D:13.12 separation. This does not work. Join with your brother and sister in  Christ, however, and sharing becomes effortless and joyful and
D:Day1.25 This has been spoken of as the second coming of  Christ because my story goes unfulfilled without your fulfillment. It
D:Day1.29 you and in me, so that together we bring about the second coming of  Christ and the elevation of the Self of form.
D:Day10.22 of this Course that this is the time of the second coming of  Christ. What we have just discussed is what both of these statements
D:Day10.24 comes from your own heart and those of your brothers and sisters in  Christ as it does from me. It comes, in truth, from our union, from
D:Day10.33 My dear brothers and sisters in  Christ, turn your thoughts not to ideals of social activism, to
D:Day17.1 without being the creator. Something has been missing. What is  Christ? What is Christ-consciousness? Are they different or the same?
D:Day17.2 the All of All given an identity. God holds you within Himself.  Christ is held within you as the center or heart of yourself—as
D:Day17.2 center or heart of yourself—as your identity and God’s identity.  Christ is the “I Am” of God, the expression of “I Am” in form, the
D:Day17.2 and the informed, the movement, being, and expression of creation.  Christ is that which anointed form with the “I Am” of God. In many
D:Day17.4 is why it was said in the beginning pages of the Course that the  Christ in you was the learner. The Christ in you is what was created
D:Day17.4 pages of the Course that the Christ in you was the learner. The  Christ in you is what was created to inspire movement beyond simple
D:Day17.7 Christ-consciousness is not the second coming of  Christ but the first coming—the movement of being into form. This
D:Day17.7 movement of being into form. This being was fully expressed by Jesus  Christ, who represented, in form, the first coming and who began the
D:Day17.11 is your will to know, to be, and to express. The time of  Christ, and the second coming of Christ, are expressions meant to
D:Day17.11 to be, and to express. The time of Christ, and the second coming of  Christ, are expressions meant to symbolize the completion of the
D:Day17.12 has now been realized, which is why this is called the time of  Christ. The “time” of Christ, whom so many associate with Jesus
D:Day17.12 which is why this is called the time of Christ. The “time” of  Christ, whom so many associate with Jesus Christ, represents the
D:Day17.12 of Christ. The “time” of Christ, whom so many associate with Jesus  Christ, represents the “time” of fulfillment of the way of Jesus.
D:Day18.2 return wholeness and will bring about the completion of the time of  Christ. This symbiotic working together will be essential for the
D:Day37.10 And then you realize that Jesus was being God and was called Jesus  Christ because he lived within Christ-consciousness, or the
D:Day37.10 the man, the God, the historical figure who has been called Jesus  Christ was not only Jesus but Christ. Not only Christ but Jesus. Not
D:Day37.10 figure who has been called Jesus Christ was not only Jesus but  Christ. Not only Christ but Jesus. Not separated but individuated.
D:Day37.10 has been called Jesus Christ was not only Jesus but Christ. Not only  Christ but Jesus. Not separated but individuated. You realize that
D:Day37.10 but individuated. You realize that the call for the second coming of  Christ has sounded and that it is a call to the difference you have
D:Day37.22 Yet the idea of God as Father, introduced and championed by Jesus  Christ, was also created by Jesus Christ. Thus is the power of man
D:Day37.22 introduced and championed by Jesus Christ, was also created by Jesus  Christ. Thus is the power of man and God together, the power of
D:Day37.23 and thus exist. But this creation, like the creation of Jesus  Christ himself, is not all of God, while at the same time it is all
D:Day37.28 Holy relationship is relationship with the  Christ in you—the bridge to unity.
D:Day39.7 “Between” you and me is the presence of  Christ. Remember we have talked about the Christ “in” you. Remember
D:Day39.7 and me is the presence of Christ. Remember we have talked about the  Christ “in” you. Remember that you have been told of Christ being a
D:Day39.7 about the Christ “in” you. Remember that you have been told of  Christ being a bridge. When you relate to anyone, Christ is there,
D:Day39.7 have been told of Christ being a bridge. When you relate to anyone,  Christ is there, bridging the distance that would keep you separate
D:Day39.7 that would keep you separate and holding you in relationship.  Christ has provided the necessary link between the separate and each
D:Day39.7 the separate and each other, between all and God. Yet if the time of  Christ is about the end of the need for the intermediary, what
D:Day39.7 for the intermediary, what becomes of the intermediary relationship  Christ seems to offer? Are you ready to hold relationship on your own?
D:Day39.8 fallen. To be individuated being in union and relationship is to be  Christ, to realize that what we call Christ is the integration of
D:Day39.8 union and relationship is to be Christ, to realize that what we call  Christ is the integration of relationship into the Self.
D:Day39.9 requires relationship. Thus you must now accept yourself as  Christ, or as the bridge of relationship between all that is
D:Day39.10 me. Discovering your own relationship with me is discovering the  Christ in you. When you have discovered your own relationship with me
D:Day39.10 are who I Am because you realize—or make real—your oneness with  Christ. When you have discovered your own relationship with me is
D:Day39.10 needed—because you have realized and made real your oneness with  Christ. When relationship is established you realize that
D:Day39.10 you hold this link, through relationship with me, within yourself.  Christ is direct relationship with me.
D:Day39.40 All of these aspects of what stand between are also an aspect of the  Christ in you.
D:Day39.41 of relief, my beloved, for you do not have to learn all that the  Christ in you learned. This is why we have had to enter the time of
D:Day39.41 ready to enter the time of being in union and relationship. The  Christ in you is the accomplished. The Christ in you is that which,
D:Day39.41 union and relationship. The Christ in you is the accomplished. The  Christ in you is that which, upon this final acceptance, returns your
D:Day39.49 And so am I. As the  Christ in you ceases to be a bridge, the Christ in you is not only
D:Day39.49 And so am I. As the Christ in you ceases to be a bridge, the  Christ in you is not only integrated into you but integrated into me.
D:Day39.49 our willingness joined do we both become, welcome, and share, the  Christ relationship to and with each other.
D:Day40.5 its isness is what I hold, or anchor within myself, and that which  Christ bridges through relationship. Your attributes are the
D:Day40.7 As soon as I became I Am there also became all I am not, the  Christ connection between all I Am and all I am not, and an I Am,
D:Day40.8 the “opposing” force of separation. With the acceptance of the  Christ in you, you are returned to relationship and need no longer
D:Day40.20 from what it is being. It doesn’t understand, until joining with the  Christ Self, before becoming one with holy relationship itself, that
D:Day40.22 exist as an extension of love, you have always held within you the  Christ, who is the relationship with love. This is why individuation
D:Day40.23 Now, as you recognize, acknowledge, and accept the  Christ as the Self you have been in relationship with, you are
D:Day40.29 the demonstration of oneness that was heralded in the time of Jesus  Christ.
E.16 of accepting the relationship of the between, the relationship of  Christ, into your own being. The cooperative relationship of all with
A.1 and A Course of Love has to do with the movement into the Time of  Christ, a time of direct learning in union and relationship with God.
A.19 The way of the heart is the way of the Time of  Christ. The time of the Holy Spirit has passed. The time of the
A.22 The way of learning in the Time of  Christ brings with it a new kind of evidence, an evidence

Christ consciousness (4)

D:12.12 with unity more and more frequently, until finally you will sustain  Christ consciousness and live in the world as the elevated Self of
D:12.19 one of oneness, include you. We are, in unity, one body. We are, in  Christ consciousness, one Christ. We are, in wholeheartedness, one
D:13.2 the state of unity, from a state you share with all at the level of  Christ consciousness but that may literally not be sharable with
D:13.6 Once you have attained a state of being able to sustain  Christ consciousness, this will no longer be a problem because you

C:2.1 The body’s eyes are not the eyes with which love can be recognized.  Christ’s vision is. For only Christ’s vision beholds the face of God.
C:2.1 eyes with which love can be recognized. Christ’s vision is. For only  Christ’s vision beholds the face of God.

Christ-conscious (1)

D:Day17.1 since you have been life-conscious without being  Christ-conscious. You have been the created without being the

Christ-consciousness (163)

T4:1.18 and chosen a new means of coming to know the truth—the means of  Christ-consciousness, is what has ushered in the new time.
T4:2.1 predictive. I have never been and will never be predictive, for I am  Christ-consciousness. Christ-consciousness is awareness of what is.
T4:2.1 been and will never be predictive, for I am Christ-consciousness.  Christ-consciousness is awareness of what is. Only an awareness of
T4:2.3 I have always been a proponent of The Way of  Christ-consciousness as The Way to Self and God.
T4:2.4 called “The Way, The Truth and The Light.” I came to show The Way to  Christ-consciousness, which is The Way to God and Self. But I also
T4:2.16 rather than illusion. This is the power to observe what is. This is  Christ-consciousness.
T4:2.28 my state of consciousness, a state of consciousness we are calling  Christ-consciousness, allowed me to exist in union and relationship
T4:2.31 might begin to recognize those who, like you, are joined with me in  Christ-consciousness? Have you suspected that you might see in ways
T4:2.33 Seeing with the vision of  Christ-consciousness is already upon you. You are in the process of
T4:3.3 observant will return you to your original purpose. The vision of  Christ-consciousness will take you beyond it.
T4:4.12 you to the new. I am calling you to transform. I am calling you to  Christ-consciousness. I am calling you to everlasting consciousness
T4:4.14 perception but saw finite life and mortal bodies. Once vision and  Christ-consciousness has returned to you, the means of
T4:4.16 of this Course, this discussion is necessary to your awareness of  Christ-consciousness. To believe that you are mortal is to believe
T4:4.18 has always been, the transformation from singular consciousness to  Christ-consciousness. Form has been but a representation of singular
T4:4.18 of singular consciousness. As form becomes a representation of  Christ-consciousness, it will take on the nature of
T4:4.18 of Christ-consciousness, it will take on the nature of  Christ-consciousness, of which my life was the example life. To
T4:4.18 of which my life was the example life. To sustain  Christ-consciousness in form is creation of the new. My one example
T4:4.18 form is creation of the new. My one example life could not sustain  Christ-consciousness for those who came after me but could only be an
T4:4.18 What you are called to do is to, through your multitude, sustain  Christ-consciousness, and thus create the union of the human and the
T4:5.3 The many forms are made one body through  Christ-consciousness. The one body is one energy given many
T4:5.3 existing in everything, and creating the life in everything, is  Christ-consciousness. It is also what we have been referring to as
T4:5.6 makes up the seemingly individual parts of the All of everything.  Christ-consciousness is your awareness of this.
T4:5.10 To align your will with the Will of God is to make the choice for  Christ-consciousness, to make the choice to be aware of who you truly
T4:5.13 For this is the time of Christ and thus of your ability to choose  Christ-consciousness, the consciousness returned to those loosed of
T4:5.13 means of the time of the intermediary, the chosen means of attaining  Christ-consciousness and direct revelation. The elevation of the
T4:6.1 literally or figuratively, is a part of the consciousness that is  Christ-consciousness. This is why you hear differing reports of the
T4:6.3 that will return all, as one body, to the natural state of  Christ-consciousness.
T4:6.5 you to share a vision of what is, the very vision of what is that is  Christ-consciousness. It is a vision of the perfection of creation.
T4:6.7  Christ-consciousness is not a static state of beliefs any more than
T4:6.7 a static state of beliefs any more than singular consciousness is.  Christ-consciousness is consciousness of what is. While consciousness
T4:6.7 of God’s law of love, can find many expressions. You can exist in  Christ-consciousness, as have many others of the past, and through
T4:6.7 as have many others of the past, and through your existence in  Christ-consciousness, affect much with what you envision, imagine and
T4:6.7 those who have come before. The changes those who have existed in  Christ-consciousness have wrought have been great, but they did not
T4:6.7 have wrought have been great, but they did not sustain  Christ-consciousness, primarily because they were unable to share
T4:6.7 Christ-consciousness, primarily because they were unable to share  Christ-consciousness directly due to individual and collective choice.
T4:6.8 now, because you exist in the Time of Christ, to directly share  Christ-consciousness and thus sustain Christ-consciousness. You can
T4:6.8 of Christ, to directly share Christ-consciousness and thus sustain  Christ-consciousness. You can pass on the inheritance you accept in
T4:7.1  Christ-consciousness will be temporary or sustainable depending on
T4:7.1 for judgment. It is simply an alternative that will draw you out of  Christ-consciousness and not allow it to be sustainable.
T4:7.2 the time of Christ does not mean that you will automatically realize  Christ-consciousness, just as living in the time of the Holy Spirit
T4:7.2 was available to all as intermediary, during the time of Christ,  Christ-consciousness is available to all.
T4:7.3 Those of you who have acquired  Christ-consciousness and are now learning the vision of
T4:7.3 acquired Christ-consciousness and are now learning the vision of  Christ-consciousness must realize the many choices that will seem to
T4:7.3 Those who allow themselves to experience revelation will enter  Christ-consciousness.
T4:7.4 Those who sustain  Christ-consciousness will abide within it free of judgment. They will
T4:7.4 but will abide within the perfect world that is in the vision of  Christ-consciousness. This perfect world will be observable to them
T4:7.5 the radical sounding nature of life-everlasting. You cannot sustain  Christ-consciousness while fear remains in you, just as you cannot
T4:7.5 while fear remains in you, just as you cannot sustain  Christ-consciousness while judgment remains in you. Why? Because it
T4:7.7 But you will also realize that an end to your learning is in sight.  Christ-consciousness and the ability to know what is, once it has
T4:7.7 you would learn in order to return you to your Self and the unity of  Christ-consciousness. The same is true of all conditions of all
T4:8.14 surely knows everything that is. But consciousness of what is, the  Christ-consciousness that allows you to be in communion with God, is

T4:11.5 partner in the creation of the future through the sustainability of  Christ-consciousness.
T4:12.1 Christ, to the creation of the future through the sustainability of  Christ-consciousness. Today we join together to birth the new.
T4:12.20 thing that is going to hold you back from your ability to sustain  Christ-consciousness is doubt about yourself. You must constantly
T4:12.20 take hold of you. Even though you are abiding now in the state of  Christ-consciousness, the pattern of the old thoughts will continue
T4:12.20 dwell in fear will end your ability to dwell within the love that is  Christ-consciousness. As there is no longer any cause for self-doubt
T4:12.22 has always been a state of consciousness that we are here calling  Christ-consciousness. There has never been a sustained
T4:12.22 here calling Christ-consciousness. There has never been a sustained  Christ-consciousness in form. The Christ-consciousness that has
T4:12.22 There has never been a sustained Christ-consciousness in form. The  Christ-consciousness that has always existed, a consciousness of what
T4:12.23 a consciousness with limits. You, as a being joined in  Christ-consciousness, must share this consciousness in order to know
T4:12.23 overcome by it if such were possible. Such is not possible, because  Christ-consciousness is not available to the separated self.
T4:12.23 because Christ-consciousness is not available to the separated self.  Christ-consciousness is the consciousness of unity for unity is what
T4:12.28 Free will continues in the pattern of  Christ-consciousness. Love continues. The individual or singular

D:2.8 the consciousness of the separated self rather than sustaining  Christ-consciousness.
D:2.22 real world and all your brothers and sisters exist in the unity of  Christ-consciousness. Change within effects change without, not the
D:2.22 for advice or guidance. Within is where you find the knowing of  Christ-consciousness, the consciousness of unity. Within is where you
D:2.22 the answer to the only remaining question; that of how to sustain  Christ-consciousness in form.
D:3.1 simply our agreement to proceed together on the palm-strewn path of  Christ-consciousness. It is a path upon which joy triumphs over
D:3.1 and the denial of the old that will allow for the sustainability of  Christ-consciousness in form.
D:3.5 you joined mind and heart and returned to the oneness and unity of  Christ-consciousness. Sustaining Christ-consciousness will accomplish
D:3.5 to the oneness and unity of Christ-consciousness. Sustaining  Christ-consciousness will accomplish the same thing in your world.
D:3.16 aware only of the reality of the separated self, would not sustain  Christ-consciousness in form.
D:3.21 or even understanding. It is. Awareness of what is, is a quality of  Christ-consciousness. Thus you are already aware of the truth of
D:4.5 has had an imprisoned personal self. Each of you who have entered  Christ-consciousness has had the cell door and the prison gate thrown
D:5.19 state. Only then can we proceed to creation of the new. Because  Christ-consciousness is consciousness of what is, we begin with what
D:6.27 true Self cannot cease to experience its natural state, the state of  Christ-consciousness, sharing in unity, the All of Everything. So
D:6.27 thought, or the continual act of prayer that sustains the unity of  Christ-consciousness.
D:7.3 integration of levels is the integration of form and unity. When  Christ-consciousness is sustained, time will collapse and the sun may
D:7.18 exists in form from the Self that exists in union or the state of  Christ-consciousness. By becoming one body, one Christ, you have
D:15.16 mind will no longer be necessary as your access to unity, or  Christ-consciousness, is maintained and sustained. Let us begin with
D:15.20 is to recognize it as that which sustains life. Sustaining unity or  Christ-consciousness is being done with the need to maintain
D:15.21 acceptance and discovery of all that is available within unity, or  Christ-consciousness, will no longer be needed. This will be as big a
D:16.13 of becoming is the time in between your awareness of and access to  Christ-consciousness or unity, and your sustainability of
D:16.13 access to Christ-consciousness or unity, and your sustainability of  Christ-consciousness or unity, in form. In your time of directly
D:16.21 learning to be replaced with the only replacement that will sustain  Christ-consciousness, the replacement of learning with sharing in
D:Day4.31 on such as these, you impose a function unnatural to this time of  Christ-consciousness upon this time. It is as if you ask to see
D:Day4.41 is the first choice of the new temptations, the first real choice of  Christ-consciousness, of the time beyond learning.
D:Day6.1 the true Self—the time in between your awareness of and access to  Christ-consciousness, or unity, and your sustainability of
D:Day6.1 access to Christ-consciousness, or unity, and your sustainability of  Christ-consciousness, or unity, in form. As was said earlier: To
D:Day7.8 separation. They exist in love. They do not exist in fear. As with  Christ-consciousness, you are moving from a place of maintenance of
D:Day7.16 When your natural state is fully returned to you and sustained within  Christ-consciousness, the conditions of the time of acceptance, like
D:Day10.18 You have “learned” the distinction between  Christ-consciousness and the man Jesus. You have “learned” the
D:Day10.19 Thus I will speak to you from this point onward as the voice of  Christ-consciousness, the voice of your own true consciousness, the
D:Day10.19 reliance on an outside source for reliance on yourself, Jesus for  Christ-consciousness. You needed the reference point of a “person,”
D:Day10.19 this sameness in yourself. This sameness of the person you are and  Christ-consciousness, of union and presence, of the individual and
D:Day10.20 accept that the man Jesus was simply a representation, in form, of  Christ-consciousness. I do, however, ask you to give up your
D:Day10.20 voice as the voice of your own true consciousness—the voice of  Christ-consciousness. Yet to realize that this is the same voice that
D:Day10.21 this time as the man Jesus so that you realize that man and  Christ-consciousness can be joined. That you, as man or woman,
D:Day10.21 or woman, existing in this particular time and space, can join with  Christ-consciousness. You can be both/and, rather than either/or. As
D:Day10.21 rather than either/or. As I speak to you now as the voice of  Christ-consciousness—as your own true Self—you will not have lost
D:Day10.21 only know more fully the content of the man Jesus. As you join with  Christ-consciousness in this dialogue, you will realize you have not
D:Day11.7  Christ-consciousness is the awareness of existence through
D:Day11.8 of the web of form with the divine All. Life is consciousness.  Christ-consciousness is awareness of what is. It is the awareness of
D:Day12.2 space within the visible surroundings. This is the reality of  Christ-consciousness. Consciousness may seem to be embodied by form
D:Day12.3 The merging of form with  Christ-consciousness is this merging of the Self with the
D:Day12.4 divided nor separated nor occupied by form. Space is all that is.  Christ-consciousness is the space of all that is.
D:Day12.7 in the world of form, a world that is perceived rather than known.  Christ-consciousness replaces perception with knowing, form with
D:Day13.5 form only. These forms are still encompassed by the loving space of  Christ-consciousness and thus are easily rendered ineffective.
D:Day15.3 that is the great informer. As you are more fully able to maintain  Christ-consciousness you begin the movement away from being observed
D:Day15.4 How can the invisible be observed? From within  Christ-consciousness, you begin to be able to know and to make known
D:Day15.11 you remain in the state of maintenance rather than sustenance of  Christ-consciousness. This is an acceptable state for this time of
D:Day15.11 one instance and not another as you move in and out of the state of  Christ-consciousness will not serve the purpose of creation.
D:Day15.12 means to join together with others who have the ability to maintain  Christ-consciousness in your company. This creates the joining
D:Day15.16 from judgment and any notion that may have remained within them that  Christ-consciousness is a form of “group think.” Never will you feel
D:Day15.21 While you are asked to promote wholeness and the sustainability of  Christ-consciousness with others sharing this specific means of
D:Day16.9 of the past required. There is also no escape, however, because in  Christ-consciousness, you must become fully aware of the present. The
D:Day16.10 moment. When you remain in the present moment you remain within  Christ-consciousness where all that is exists in harmony. To embrace
D:Day16.10 There is no escape for there is only the embrace. The embrace is  Christ-consciousness.
D:Day17.1 cause of movement that began the creation story. We have spoken of  Christ-consciousness as the awareness of existence through
D:Day17.1 through relationship. We have spoken of life-consciousness and  Christ-consciousness as the merging of the human and the divine into
D:Day17.1 form. Thus there must be a difference between life-consciousness and  Christ-consciousness, since you have been life-conscious without
D:Day17.1 the creator. Something has been missing. What is Christ? What is  Christ-consciousness? Are they different or the same?
D:Day17.2 You have been told  Christ-consciousness is neither God nor man but the relationship that
D:Day17.2 that allows the awareness that God is everything. You have been told  Christ-consciousness has also been known as wisdom, Sophia, spirit.
D:Day17.2 Christ-consciousness has also been known as wisdom, Sophia, spirit.  Christ-consciousness thus obviously predates the man Jesus, and
D:Day17.3 of coming to know. This “part” of God, the animator and informer, is  Christ-consciousness.
D:Day17.4 you attempting to move beyond learning to a new means of knowing?  Christ-consciousness. This is why it was said in the beginning pages
D:Day17.5 patterns of learning because of the strength of their connection to  Christ-consciousness. While no one has more access to
D:Day17.5 connection to Christ-consciousness. While no one has more access to  Christ-consciousness than another, some exhibited more willingness to
D:Day17.5 movement and expression. Those like Jesus, who fully expressed  Christ-consciousness in form, did so as individuals, by not negating
D:Day17.5 as they realized this connection. Many others with realization of  Christ-consciousness as strong as that of the man, Jesus, did not
D:Day17.7  Christ-consciousness is not the second coming of Christ but the first
D:Day17.7 coming and who began the movement from maintenance to sustenance of  Christ-consciousness. Let’s consider why this representation should
D:Day17.8 are necessary for wholeness. Representation of the power of  Christ-consciousness in human form was necessary to complete the
D:Day17.9  Christ-consciousness was represented not only by Jesus, but by his
D:Day17.9 by Jesus, but by his mother, Mary. Mary, like Jesus, realized full  Christ-consciousness and full expression of Christ-consciousness in
D:Day17.9 Jesus, realized full Christ-consciousness and full expression of  Christ-consciousness in form. Each did so in individual ways, ways
D:Day17.9 by example, and preparing a way for those who would approach  Christ-consciousness through teaching and learning and leading
D:Day17.9 was a representation and preparation for those who would approach  Christ-consciousness through relationship.
D:Day17.10 represent what God created, the means of coming to know—which is  Christ-consciousness—through individual choice or will.
D:Day17.11  Christ-consciousness is your will to know, to be, and to express. The
D:Day18.2 the world. So do each of you. These two ways also represent God and  Christ-consciousness, the extension of God. God is everything in
D:Day18.2 on heaven and on earth. Thus, God represents the world without.  Christ-consciousness is God within you, your particular manifestation
D:Day18.8 of the truth. They are your means of coming to know. They arise from  Christ-consciousness. They come not in response but as creations.
D:Day18.11 are the creations unique to you through your interaction with the  Christ-consciousness that abides within you. One way of doing this is
D:Day19.8 Mary cannot be reborn without the way of Jesus. Both ways arose from  Christ-consciousness as demonstrations of ways. Those who have
D:Day21.9 upon yourself has been expressed as a dialogue taking place within  Christ-consciousness, the consciousness you share in union and
D:Day21.9 yourself to hear this voice as your own? To express the voice of  Christ-consciousness as only you can express it?
D:Day22.9 This awareness is what we have been calling  Christ-consciousness, but what you call it now matters not. All the
D:Day23.5 will to know and to make known. This will is divine will, your will,  Christ-consciousness. It is alive within you. All that is required is
D:Day37.10 was being God and was called Jesus Christ because he lived within  Christ-consciousness, or the compassionate consciousness that you
D:Day38.3 Now we set aside once again the “we” of  Christ-consciousness, of our shared being, and enter into

D:8.10 The self and the expression of self that  comes from any place other than wholeheartedness is not the true Self
D:9.13 through which what already exists, what is already accomplished,  comes or passes through by means of the expression of your form and
D:10.1 of the personal self in the wider circle of unity is timeless. What  comes to you in the form of natural abilities or talents, as ideas,

D:Day3.13 you, and not your gifts. Everything coming with a price. Abundance  comes, even to those gifted, only through the exploitation of gifts.
D:Day3.20 acknowledged, seldom spoken of. Think you not that the shame that  comes from heartaches or mistaken actions is any greater than the
D:Day3.40 will open to you. You may see, audibly hear, and interact with what  comes to you from union.
D:Day3.47 matter how much it enables you to attain. Certainty, in other words,  comes from somewhere else. This somewhere else we have defined as
D:Day5.5 physical body. Some could feel it in their hands and others as if it  comes directly from their mouths as speech is enabled that bypasses
D:Day5.13 Self you are, you know love is not an attribute and that all love  comes from the same Source. You know you have been able to “give”
D:Day5.21 onion to illustrate, but as a point of entry and pass-through. What  comes of unity enters you and passes through you to the world. This

D:Day10.24 are a full participant. As much of what you read in these dialogues  comes from your own heart and those of your brothers and sisters in

D:Day33.7 wording may make love sound as if it is an event, something that  comes to you or happens to you. Yet if relationship and being are
D:Day33.7 whole is love. In other words, every relationship, everything that  comes to you, every event, every situation, is of being, which is
D:Day33.15 one in being, creator and created. This is a realization that only  comes of love because love is the only “condition” of union.
D:Day38.14 Fullness  comes only from love, which is the source and substance of who we are
D:Day40.30 With this ability to individuate in unity and relationship  comes the greatest gift of all. It is the end of becoming and the
D:Day40.30 of becoming and the beginning of being who you are. With this gift  comes the ability to be known and to know. Can you give up the ideal

T4:10.1 a student to the realization of your accomplishment. You were once  comfortable being your own teacher. You willingly gave up this role
T4:10.1 being your own teacher. You willingly gave up this role and became  comfortable in the true role of learner. You are now asked to be

D:12.12 unguarded moments. I am attempting to help you to become aware and  comfortable with the idea that, released of old patterns, the self

D:Day4.35 bit farther, stretch your mind just a little beyond where it is  comfortable going, that there you will find this access, this portal

C:19.15 Yet, in the case of coming to know what lies before you now—  coming to know your own Self—it is obvious that another’s
C:27.3 purpose here, rather than being one of finding meaning, is one of  coming to know through relationship. It is in coming to know through

T1:7.4 is ending even though I have stated that the time of the second  coming of Christ is here. I have said that the time of parables has
T1:9.12 already happening. As the ego has become threatened and allowed the  coming of guidance, males and females both have begun to work with
T2:4.16 in the process of unmaking what you have made. The old structure is  coming down so that the new, what might be likened to a building with
T2:9.18 This phase of  coming to accept need and dependency is necessary only as a learning
T2:10.11 forgotten, you still are in need of the learning that assists you in  coming to know once again.

T2:10.15 in which coming to know is not appropriate? Is there any reason that  coming to know should not be seen as something continuous and ongoing?
T3:1.9 This change that is in the process of  coming about has to do with awareness. When you become aware of the
T3:10.7 you have formerly reacted to every situation. Not one situation  coming to you now will be a repeat of the past. How can it be when
T3:17.7 the time of the Holy Spirit has ended and the time of the second  coming of Christ is here. The name of Christ was associated with my
T4:1.9 if I had but known” this or that. The choice is the way of  coming to know. No choice is not such. No choice ever excludes anyone
T4:1.9 to know. No choice is not such. No choice ever excludes anyone from  coming to know his or her chosen lesson.
T4:1.17 The same truth has always existed, but the choice of a means of  coming to know the truth has shifted. All were chosen and all are
T4:1.18 has chosen them. That you have chosen God and chosen a new means of  coming to know the truth—the means of Christ-consciousness, is what
T4:1.22 You have felt this shift  coming and so has the world. This is the yearning we have spoken of
T4:2.33 of learning to create anew. Creating anew is the precursor of the  coming of the new world. Remember, only from a shared vision of what
T4:4.4 particularly historically, as the time of the child of the parent  coming into his or her inheritance or time of fullness. The power and
T4:8.17 and sisters, does come to an end, and that end is fast approaching.  Coming to know through learning will be of the past as soon as
T4:9.5 You have felt this time  coming. You have realized that your learning has reached an end
T4:12.30 fear-free and continually able to sustain Christ-consciousness, is  coming to know the new design, and the new patterns that reveal the
T4:12.33 creation that is before us. It will be mutually decided through the  coming revelations and our responses to the revelations of the new.
D:4.11 Let us begin by  coming to agreement about the idea of divine design. This divine

D:13.3 The first is that what you will be discovering, what you will be  coming to know, will be coming to you from the state of unity, which
D:13.3 you will be discovering, what you will be coming to know, will be  coming to you from the state of unity, which is a shared state.
D:13.3 state of unity, which is a shared state. Although what you will be  coming to know is already known to you, it will still come in the

D:13.5 and details and particulars. While you are perfectly capable of  coming to know in wholeness, a way that is actually natural to you,

D:16.2 occurs in each of us, seemingly one at a time. Creation is our  coming into our true identity, and is the extension or expression of
D:16.19 like memories of childhood. This time of becoming is a time of  coming to acceptance of them as what they are—images. This time of
D:16.19 them as what they are—images. This time of becoming is a time of  coming to acceptance that they are not real. They are no more real
D:16.20 of letting these images be without reacting to them. It is a time of  coming to no longer “hold” these images in your mind and heart. It is
D:Day1.25 This has been spoken of as the second  coming of Christ because my story goes unfulfilled without your
D:Day1.29 in you and in me, so that together we bring about the second  coming of Christ and the elevation of the Self of form.
D:Day2.4 was always envisioned. This is the moment of fulfillment and desire  coming together, the time in which to realize “it was all worth it.”
D:Day3.13 of nothing being truly free. Not you, and not your gifts. Everything  coming with a price. Abundance comes, even to those gifted, only
D:Day3.39 you did not think. We spoke of these thoughts you did not think  coming with authority and certainty, a certainty you had previously
D:Day4.9 system. That you all attempt to learn the same things, and in  coming to identify the world in the same way—the way that has been
D:Day4.49 fearless, you will know this, and you will pass through the time of  coming to acceptance again and again until you are ready. You cannot
D:Day4.51 dwelt in illusion. The relationship of union is what you are here  coming to know once again, which is why the time of fear, and along
D:Day5.3 since you are not your body, the idea of what originates “within”  coming from a point beyond the body is not now too unbelievable to
D:Day6.4 spoken of becoming as the time of movement, being, and expression  coming together. We have further spoken of your point of access to
D:Day6.30 allow this. This is the point of movement, being, and expression  coming together. The point of convergence, intersection, and
D:Day7.1 What does the idea of only now  coming to acceptance imply but that you were previously unaccepting?
D:Day8.17 of feelings here, and there has been a reason for this discussion  coming so late in our time together. To accept the feelings of the
D:Day10.15 feel in the self of form. Reflect further on your idea of certainty  coming from a place “other than” the self. Realize in these
D:Day10.22 the beginning of this Course that this is the time of the second  coming of Christ. What we have just discussed is what both of these
D:Day10.22 mean. This is the culmination point of these two great objectives  coming together in you and your brothers and sisters.
D:Day14.11 way to arrive at acceptance of your relationship with your means of  coming to know.
D:Day14.12 words is a form of acceptance of the unknown and as such a means of  coming to know. These words are only one means, which is why this is
D:Day15.18 keeps you in constant contact with the unknown and with unceasing  coming to know.
D:Day15.19 constant dialogue for you have not claimed a knowing that disallows  coming to know. You are in dialogue because in dialogue, coming to
D:Day15.19 disallows coming to know. You are in dialogue because in dialogue,  coming to know is a fluid exchange.
D:Day15.20 the current of the energy, or clear pools of the spacious selves,  coming together. This current washes some stones clean and washes
D:Day15.21 of Christ-consciousness with others sharing this specific means of  coming to know with you, you are not asked to disregard any other
D:Day15.21 to know with you, you are not asked to disregard any other means of  coming to know or to see any others differently than you see those
D:Day15.26 see that it may be quite different from the others with whom you are  coming to know, and perhaps quite different than you thought it would
D:Day15.27 attention now so that as you join in true spaciousness with those  coming to know along with you, you do not create false ideas
D:Day16.11 to whether or not you are able to remain in a state of constant  coming to know. What you expel is what you do not want to know. What
D:Day16.13 hold onto it as the “known” and do not remain in a constant state of  coming to know. What you would hold onto is based on fear and
D:Day16.13 love and so exists along with you in the spacious state of constant  coming to know.
D:Day17.2 traditions, life is ritually or sacramentally anointed in its  coming and its going in remembrance of the original anointing.
D:Day17.3 God is the creator of knowing because God created a means of  coming to know. This “part” of God, the animator and informer, is
D:Day17.4 became more and more centered in the mind and more and more about  coming to know what others had already learned and were capable of
D:Day17.7 Christ-consciousness is not the second  coming of Christ but the first coming—the movement of being into
D:Day17.7 Christ-consciousness is not the second coming of Christ but the first  coming—the movement of being into form. This being was fully
D:Day17.7 fully expressed by Jesus Christ, who represented, in form, the first  coming and who began the movement from maintenance to sustenance of
D:Day17.10 is the ability to represent what God created, the means of  coming to know—which is Christ-consciousness—through individual
D:Day17.11 to know, to be, and to express. The time of Christ, and the second  coming of Christ, are expressions meant to symbolize the completion
D:Day17.11 completion of the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth as a means of  coming to know.
D:Day18.8 of the present and thus of the truth. They are your means of  coming to know. They arise from Christ-consciousness. They come not
D:Day19.11 time of transition, both ways are needed to demonstrate the means of  coming to know, which are what all true expression is about.
D:Day20.7 This is why you can “know” while always  coming to know. Why you can know yourself and constantly be coming to
D:Day20.7 always coming to know. Why you can know yourself and constantly be  coming to know. The only thing there is to know is the One Self in
D:Day20.9 One Self can be made known, then you are the source and the power of  coming to know and making known.
D:Day22.1 spoken little of channeling here, it is only because you have been  coming to know yourself as channels without the need for these words.
D:Day23.3 interconnected to all that lives and breathes along with you. We are  coming metaphorically and literally out of the clouds, out of the
D:Day26.1 It has been said that you are the source and the power of  coming to know and making known. It naturally follows, then, that you
D:Day26.3 guide. This simply means that you turn to the Self as the source of  coming to know of the unknown. While simple, this idea can be
D:Day27.6  Coming to know is not an aspect of the mind alone. It is not an
D:Day27.6 aspect of the mind alone. It is not an aspect of the spirit alone.  Coming to know is a quality of inner-sight, of wholehearted human
D:Day28.1 reached to begin to view the choices available would be to put off  coming to know the difference between externally and internally
D:Day28.2 of those experienced during the years of what is called adulthood,  coming of age, or the age of reason. These have been discussed before
D:Day36.19 as directly as it is being stated here. But our time together is  coming to an end and your acceptance of the truth of who you are and
D:Day37.10 separated but individuated. You realize that the call for the second  coming of Christ has sounded and that it is a call to the difference
D:Day37.22 that you appeal to when you appeal to God. Knowing what you are  coming to know about the true nature of God should thus not leave you
D:Day39.48 come to know. Because we are constantly creating, we are constantly  coming to know anew. This is eternity. A being in time wants to be

E.1 self-improvement, imagine how much time will be saved by this quest  coming to an end. But what now will you do? What now will you be?
A.11 What you are finding through this method is receptivity. You are  coming home to the way of the heart. What you gain by sharing with
A.29 diverse “learning” situations, the individuals will actually be  coming to many very similar new insights and truths.
