D:Day9.11 As was said  earlier, all of your images are false images. Isn’t it possible that
D:Day14.7 for the self to be the fully invisible or spacious Self described  earlier. What you once stopped and held in a “holding pattern” to

D:Day37.2 that you are being does not define who you are any better than the  earlier example of your experiences would define who you are, because
D:Day40.11 no form, no conditions, no nature. It simply is. It was said  earlier that being is as Love is. This was a reference to my being,
D:Day40.11 being God, as in being human, being takes on attributes. As was said  earlier, this was meant to provide for the individuation process

D:Day4.1 Remember here all the “arguments” that I needed to present in the  early part of this Course just to convince you that you are not alone
D:Day4.7 as well. Despite the creation story that symbolizes man’s journey,  early man was not a being who learned in the same way that you do.
D:Day4.7 early man was not a being who learned in the same way that you do.  Early man had no language. His mind was not full of thoughts. Early

C:5.22 to effort as if it is the way to God, not wanting to believe all  effort is in vain or that a simple solution exists. A simple solution
C:5.22 little value. The individual, you reason, is made through all this  effort and struggle and without it would not be. In this you are

C:6.17 Those who could not change the world one iota through their constant  effort, in peace create the world anew.
C:7.5 for it is the primary thought by which you live your life. Your  effort goes into maintaining this illusion that what you are must be
C:9.7 and gentleness. A desire to know everything but only through its own  effort, a desire to see everything but only through its own eyes, a
C:10.7 therapy to still the negative messages that you hear, and after much  effort succeeded at replacing what was negative with messages of a
C:10.9 of your separated self wanting something for itself and all its  effort. This is but a stage you will pass through, though some may

C:20.47 peace. You can barely keep your personal concerns in order. Your  effort to do so is all that stands between you and chaos.
C:22.12 no other access. These forces must then be directed. Often great  effort is expended keeping these forces from piercing your heart, the
C:26.9 not accept that happiness as well as meaning is due you through no  effort of your own. Scenes of your life play through your mind that

T2:11.16 But this is not the new way and the lack of value from this type of  effort can surely now be seen.
T3:3.3 fall somewhere in between, living a life full of good intentions and  effort and being surprised neither by what seems to work nor what
T3:3.9 idea that you are not good enough or that you do not want to put the  effort into being good enough. Like a person who believes she has a
T3:4.1 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 your
T3:16.2 give anything 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
T3:16.3 from the old. If this were possible, you would indeed be called to  effort and to struggle, to planning and to a state of knowing that
T3:16.3 without changing their nature in the slightest measure. All the  effort of the ego has not brought an end to suffering or strife, nor
T3:20.13 you work toward? No. This is not your work. This is not about your  effort. This is about your observance. Your observance of the laws of
T3:22.14 out the world where what is, is separated from what will be by your  effort and the time that it will take you to, through your effort,
T3:22.14 by your effort and the time that it will take you to, through your  effort, create the desired outcome. Observation of what you desire is
T4:2.12 and that those who follow in time will do so more easily, with less  effort, and with even greater success. They may consider themselves
T4:3.5 a Self of love despite your fear, fear has thwarted your every  effort and caused the very effort that has continued the cycle of

T4:3.7 will not be judged by it. All judgment is the cause of fear and this  effort to weigh love’s strength against fear’s veracity. While you

T4:12.18 than throwing out the old and beginning again? And doing so without  effort, without struggle. What could be more looked forward to than
D:2.1 within this willingness an ability to receive and left behind your  effort to “learn” this Course, began the work that is being continued
D:10.3 when you also think that it is your hard work and diligence, your  effort and struggle, that bring the expression of these givens
D:10.3 in error and limit your expression in much the same ways that the  effort of teaching and learning limits them. It is your joyous
D:14.8 than receiving, when you believe you have cause for stress and  effort rather than for just being open to what comes.
D:14.10 incremental and discovery is not. Learning took place in parts in an  effort to lead to wholeness. Discovery comes to you in wholeness. So
D:15.23 hard work is done. What you gain here you gain from what is beyond  effort and beyond learning, and from the maintenance of the state in
D:Day3.25 you will only have what you can earn or learn, that only through  effort will you gain, and that with your gain will come another’s

D:Day5.22 would give in which the ego once made its bid to claim ownership.  Effort, as translated by the ego, was about turning everything that

C:P.4 Course in Miracles. While a course in miracles is meaningless to the  ego and unnecessary to spirit it would seem to have no audience at

C:P.9 to protect it from the ego’s reach are valiant but unnecessary. The  ego cannot claim the glory that is yours.

C:P.14 you have not awakened but still are caught in the nightmare your  ego has made. By choosing to reject yourself you have chosen to try
C:P.15 confused yourself further by accepting that you are two selves—an  ego self represented by the body—and a spirit self that represents
C:P.15 in which you can believe but not take part. You thus have placed the  ego at odds with spirit, giving the ego an internal and invisible foe
C:P.15 part. You thus have placed the ego at odds with spirit, giving the  ego an internal and invisible foe to do battle with. This was hardly

C:P.20 selflessness to self because this is your chosen way to abolish  ego and to please God. This is not unlike the attitude of a good
C:P.22 of God, prolonged interest in self can further entrench the  ego.
C:P.24 in you is also still and ever present. But the weakening done your  ego by whatever learning you have done has left room for strength, a
C:P.24 strength that grows, and grows impatient with delay. It is not your  ego that grows impatient for change, for your ego is highly invested

C:P.42 you have not vanquished the ego. You learn and then you let the  ego come and take all you have learned from you again and still
C:P.43 You were your Self before you began your learning, and the  ego cannot take your Self from you but only can obscure it. Thus the

C:P.44 so betray you. We take a step away from intellect, the pride of the  ego, and approach this final learning through the realm of the heart.

C:1.13 is the state your ego has you endlessly striving to achieve. Your  ego would have you believe that only when you need no one to achieve
C:2.9 and yet you constantly forget. This forgetting is the work of your  ego. Your true Self does not want to forget, and cannot for even the
C:2.17 mind rebels. Your mind rebels because it is the stronghold of the  ego. Your thought system is what has made the world you see, the ego
C:2.17 the ego. Your thought system is what has made the world you see, the  ego its constant companion in its construction.
C:2.19 Just as the Holy Spirit can use what the  ego has made, the ego can use what the mind has learned but has not
C:2.19 Just as the Holy Spirit can use what the ego has made, the  ego can use what the mind has learned but has not integrated. Until
C:2.19 Once you are what you have learned, there is no room in which the  ego can exist and, banished from the home you made for it, it slowly
C:2.19 the home you made for it, it slowly dies. Until this happens, the  ego takes pride in what the mind has acquired, even unto the greater
C:3.22 depending on the tenacity of your thoughts, which, led by your  ego, would throw logic in love’s way. Some others might use their
C:4.15 would mean, an ideal that changed over time. Those most bound by the  ego might think of stature and of wealth, of physical beauty and the
C:8.25 systems: the thought system of God, and the thought system of the  ego or the separated self. The thought system of the separated self
C:9.30 announces that his body is not within his control. What is your  ego but an imaginary friend to you?
C:10.17 many has seemed to be “Would you rather be right or happy?” Only the  ego would choose being right over happiness. As you observe your
C:13.10 Your  ego will strongly resist your attempts to listen to your heart, and
C:14.28 of love, of innocence and of joy, threatens your specialness, your  ego, your separated self who quickly rushes in with love’s
C:20.3 here. You have given up the vision of your eyes and the “I” of your  ego. You are loosed of bounds, no longer a thing of beauty, but
C:20.46 to believe in your ability and mightiness. Remember not your  ego concerns and remember instead the warmth of the embrace. Remember
C:23.8 rather than as a being existing in relationship. This comes from  ego rather than from the true Self.
C:25.20 can take no credit for your life. Wanting to take credit is of the  ego, and at this stage the desire to create may be linked with ego as
C:25.20 the ego, and at this stage the desire to create may be linked with  ego as well. Your personal self will be looking for a place in which
C:27.5 the self as important seems at one time like a function of the  ego, and at another as a function of the divine. You become confused
C:29.3 of being of service to God. This is a symptom of the reign of the  ego and its ability to both aggrandize your notion of yourself, and
C:31.11 all your thoughts and given them an identity we have called the  ego. Without dislodging your belief in your ego as yourself you will
C:31.11 we have called the ego. Without dislodging your belief in your  ego as yourself you will never realize your true identity.
C:31.12 by coming to a better understanding of the heart, or love. How the  ego becomes dislodged matters not. What matters is where you place
C:31.14 The  ego is that part of yourself that clings to the idea of separation,
C:31.16 is just a small portion of yourself you share, the portion that your  ego has deemed safe, acceptable, presentable. The portion that your
C:31.16 ego has deemed safe, acceptable, presentable. The portion that your  ego has deemed will cause you no risk. It is the ego that asks: Are
C:31.16 portion that your ego has deemed will cause you no risk. It is the  ego that asks: Are you certain that if you share that feeling, you
C:31.16 that if you try something new, you will still be accepted? It is the  ego that deems honesty a game; the ego that you let decide upon your
C:31.16 will still be accepted? It is the ego that deems honesty a game; the  ego that you let decide upon your truth. For what you live is what
C:31.25 Your  ego thoughts can never share the truth with you nor with anyone else.
C:31.25 can never share the truth with you nor with anyone else. The  ego invented the idea of “telling” the truth and using it as an
C:31.25 able to keep truth a secret, one of the most ridiculous ideas of the  ego thought system.
C:31.27 is being of one truth, and how can you be of anything less? Only the  ego sprang from a lie, the lie of separation that created the
C:31.35 extension of mind into a realm in which experience can occur. Your  ego has made of this something different than it is. Rather than
C:31.35 than extension of mind, your experience has become a projection of  ego. This can change.
T1:1.9 A mind and heart joined in union abolishes the  ego. The ego-mind was what was once in charge of all your thoughts.
T1:1.9 ego-mind was what was once in charge of all your thoughts. Since the  ego is incapable of learning the ego-mind had to be circumvented in
T1:4.8 The ego-mind, in its imitation of creation, put the “you” of the  ego or the body at the center of its thought system and from this
T1:5.10 is the only cause of your experience here. When released from the  ego thought system, the heart becomes the determiner of what you
T1:9.12 In the broadest of terms, this is already happening. As the  ego has become threatened and allowed the coming of guidance, males
T1:9.12 both have begun to work with the parts of themselves over which the  ego has the least control. For males this has most often meant a
T1:9.12 a turning away from the intellectual realm, which was ruled by the  ego, to the realm of feelings. For females this has most often meant
T1:9.13 ask you to cull from your own recent experience. What has caused the  ego to become more apparent to you as you have learned this Course?
T1:9.13 feelings called into question or your ideas? And what guise did the  ego take as it rallied to your aide? Did it require you to retreat or
T1:9.14 reaction, is cognizant with your old pattern, or the pattern of the  ego. What breaks the ego’s hold will be the second reaction, or the
T1:9.15 changing. You will not see so much to value in what has called your  ego into action and will turn away from it.
T2:1.3 thing is capable of being a treasure or being treasured are of the  ego. We will instead assume that you have moved beyond these ego
T2:1.3 of the ego. We will instead assume that you have moved beyond these  ego concerns and explore the realm of internal treasures.
T2:1.4 Those of you who have moved beyond the realm of the  ego, in your fear of returning to it, often turn away from internal
T2:1.4 internal treasures that you believe, when realized, might feed the  ego. Despite many observations within this Course regarding desire,
T2:1.13  Ego desires cause one to think of a grand piano. Thoughts joined in
T2:1.13 one to think of a grand piano. Thoughts joined in unity hear music.  Ego desires cause one to think of an elaborately framed painting.
T2:4.2 are hardly the same thing. You are at the mercy only of your own  ego and only until you willingly let it go.
T2:7.6 This source is the  ego. Even now, the ego will take every opportunity that arises to
T2:7.6 This source is the ego. Even now, the  ego will take every opportunity that arises to prove to you that
T2:7.6 should be resisted. As long as you continue to listen to your  ego you will not understand giving and receiving as one and will not
T2:7.19 learn to discriminate, to separate the false from the true, for your  ego thoughts cannot long abide in the holy place of your heart. Then,
T2:9.1 that this desire is not present in all relationships. It is only the  ego that stands between desire and the meeting of desire, needs and
T2:9.2 are many other means of practice that assist you in bypassing your  ego mind. Some practices more commonly thought of as tools might be
T2:9.2 mind such as affirmations. These tools are all means of releasing  ego mind and inviting the one mind, or unity into the present moment.
T2:10.8 your ability lies in the Christ in you. You might think of the  ego as the hand that swats away this knowing.
T2:10.9 The  ego is the teacher you have relied upon when you have relied upon
T2:10.10 the learner here. What need is there for a computer brain or for the  ego to be teacher when the learner in you is the all-powerful? The
T2:10.10 knowing that already exists, the memory that is swatted away by the  ego.
T2:10.12 But as long as you continue to attempt to learn with your  ego, or in other words, as long as you would continue to attempt to
T2:10.13 words, by ending the separated state which is the state in which the  ego exists. The end of the separated state or the ego, is the
T2:10.13 state in which the ego exists. The end of the separated state or the  ego, is the beginning of your ability to hear only one voice, the
T2:10.16 your desire for a static state would make you rather listen to your  ego as it prescribes learning for certain circumstances that would be
T2:11.2 you now know that struggle of any kind alerts you to the presence of  ego, you will continue to do battle with the ego rather than leaving
T2:11.2 you to the presence of ego, you will continue to do battle with the  ego rather than leaving it forever behind.
T2:11.3 Doing battle with the  ego has become the preoccupation of many gifted and learned people.
T2:11.3 battle that in your imaginings has extended even to the angels. The  ego is the dragon that must be slain, the evil of the despot to be
T2:11.4 a peace that begins and ends with ceasing to do battle with the  ego. As the ego has been the known identity of your existence until
T2:11.4 that begins and ends with ceasing to do battle with the ego. As the  ego has been the known identity of your existence until now, it will,
T2:11.4 be of service to you and your expression, there is no service the  ego can do you. The ego is the one untruth, given many names and many
T2:11.4 you and your expression, there is no service the ego can do you. The  ego is the one untruth, given many names and many faces and the only
T2:11.7 with your understanding that all that is real is shared does the  ego lose its power. The ego was made from the belief in separation
T2:11.7 that all that is real is shared does the ego lose its power. The  ego was made from the belief in separation and all that followed from
T2:11.7 relationship. Separation is all that opposes relationship, and the  ego is all that opposes your true identity.
T2:11.8 Yet, as has already been said, the  ego, having been with you from your earliest remembering, will
T2:11.10 yourself and your world will be difficult you are listening to your  ego. The Christ in you knows not of difficulty.
T2:11.12 separation without relationship, then the image of yourself the  ego has put forth would have been a true image. But as life cannot
T2:11.12 choice was not available and did not overturn the laws of God. The  ego is but your belief that this has occurred; that what could never
T2:11.14 have given your relationship with your separate identity the name of  ego. Here, we are asking you to choose the one real relationship and
T2:11.15 of doing battle can only remain if you remain convinced that the  ego is real. As long as you believe that the ego is real, you will

T2:11.17 While you have learned much here, you may be thinking that your  ego is still very much with you, and wondering, if you have not yet
T2:12.11 the relationship of all that would bring the seed to fruition. The  ego could be here compared to a gardener who believes that the seed
T2:12.11 light and air, the seed would but remain a source of struggle. The  ego would hang on to what is already accomplished within you, never

T2:13.6 that the seriousness with which you once looked at life is of the  ego. Drape your persona in a mantle of peace and joy. Let who you are
T3:1.1 represented an ego-self who you believed yourself to be. Now the  ego has been separated from the personal self so that you may claim
T3:1.3 The false representation of the  ego as the self is what has led to the world you see. A true
T3:1.6 You who have spent most of your life representing the  ego have but given a face to illusion and made it seem real. When I

T3:2.5 While you have believed you are the self of the  ego, you have believed in a need to both glorify the self and
T3:2.6 self can begin to represent the truth for it leaves untruth, or the  ego, behind. It is only this one, unaltered Self that is the truth of
T3:3.1 you. What cannot be recognized or known cannot be loved. While your  ego has not been loveable, you have always been. Here is where you
T3:3.2 characteristics are nothing more than a persona that has served the  ego faithfully. All of your traits have been chosen either in

T3:6.4 Self, beginning with the idea of your abandonment here. Since the  ego is a chosen self and a learned self, there has always been just
T3:6.4 the ego’s thought system to keep within you the idea of a self the  ego is not. Thus has the ego had a self to blame for everything,
T3:6.4 to keep within you the idea of a self the ego is not. Thus has the  ego had a self to blame for everything, including your very

T3:14.1 birth of the thought system of the truth. The thought system of the  ego was based on fear. In this time of translation from one thought
T3:14.1 change is the change from the foundation of fear, the basis of the  ego thought system, to a foundation of love, the basis of the thought
T3:14.1 the thought system of truth. While the foundation of fear, like the  ego, will have left you now, a pattern of behaving fearfully may
T3:14.2 clear. Because you now are translating the thought system of the  ego into the thought system of the truth, you will begin to believe
T3:14.11 the illusion from which it came. Remember that bitterness, like the  ego, has existed in all. If your brother or sister would not give up
T3:15.8 With the death of the  ego, special relationships too have breathed their last. As I said
T3:15.11 for the finalizing of the translation of the thought system of the  ego to the thought system of the truth. As we have said before, it is
T3:15.13 learned, 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
T3:16.3 These have been the ways of creation in the thought system of the  ego, ways that have brought much advancement to the forms you occupy
T3:16.3 their nature in the slightest measure. All the effort of the  ego has not brought an end to suffering or strife, nor made of this
T3:16.8 your mind and heart will aid the translation of this aspect of the  ego thought system to the thought system of the truth.
T3:16.16 All of these temptations worked together in the thought system of the  ego and created patterns that caused them to only seem to be
T3:19.4 things have always had as their cause the thought system of the  ego or the bitterness of the heart. As cause and effect are one,

T2:11.16 The alternative is removing all faith from your belief in the  ego-self. The alternative is replacing belief in an ego-self with
T2:11.16 belief in the ego-self. The alternative is replacing belief in an  ego-self with belief in a Christ-Self. Total replacement. As long as
T2:13.3 you are here, you have a persona. While this persona is no longer an  ego-self but a Christ-Self, it is still a persona. This is the “you”
T3:1.1 the personal self that you presented to others represented an  ego-self who you believed yourself to be. Now the ego has been
T3:1.6 by your body, while adhering to the ego’s thought system, became an  ego-self or an unreal self. An unreal self cannot help but exist in
T3:1.12 is the Christ. Your remembrance of the Christ-Self has abolished the  ego-self and allows us to begin the lessons of the personal self.
T3:1.13 lessons of this Course, to distinguish the personal self from the  ego-self. There is a danger even now in focusing upon the self of the
T3:1.13 the self of the body, as this self has been so long bound to the  ego-self. Even with the ego once and finally vanquished, the patterns

T3:4.7 is to prevent the replacement of illusion with illusion, or one  ego-self with another. The training of this Course, while gentle in

T3:17.5 a new self, which we have called the ego-self, was made. Since the  ego-self cannot learn the true, your true Self had to be appealed to
T3:17.8 known the existence of the illusion and the thought system of the  ego-self and been able to communicate within that illusion. Without
T3:17.8 within that illusion. Without this means of communication with the  ego-self the ability to learn the truth could not have returned to
T3:21.11 Even while this experience is experience of an  ego-self, it is still an experience as near to certainty as you have
T4:1.26 the truth and will soon begin looking earnestly for it. Even the  ego-self will be perceived clearly by these, and they will not want
D:Day3.28 striving for more, a trick to guarantee the survival of the  ego-self, a trick that provided the small rewards of time-bound
D:Day4.25 no more good than blaming others, for without the dismantling of the  ego-self, without the dismantling of the self as separate and alone,
D:Day7.19 It was the disjoining of mind and heart, of the real Self from the  ego-self, that created the need for learning and the imposition, from
D:Day8.26 the future self you think you can only dream of being. The  ego-self was the self you felt safe presenting to the world, the self

C:P.5 Miracles opened a door by threatening the ego. All those who, with  egos weakened, walked this world with the hope of leaving ego behind,
T1:9.12 most often meant a turning away from the feeling realm where their  egos held most sway, toward the intellectual. This instinctual
A.18 difficulty lies. To give up difficulty for ease is more than some  egos are willing to accept. To give up effort for receptivity is more

D:6.2 to be stated and stated again. But as we enter this new time of  elevated form, these same ideas—ideas that many of you attached to

D:3.18 This is not meant to convey any division between the Self and the  elevated Self of form, but to demonstrate that there is a difference
D:3.18 that there is a difference in form between the Self and the  elevated Self of form. The Self was and will always remain more than

D:6.26 from this new experience in form you now enter into, but that the  elevated Self of form is now able to join with the Self in the unity

C:6.11 of your mind, the meaning you give to joining, the face you put on  eternal peace. With such a vision in your mind it is no wonder that
C:6.12 for heaven are seen to be in opposition. Heaven and its milieu of  eternal peace is rightly kept, you think, for the end of life, and so
C:7.9 leaving not a corner of the universe untouched. In an instant the  eternal will be upon you. Death will be a dream as the wind of life
C:7.22 fantasy but in truth. Not in changing form and circumstance but in  eternal consistency.
C:9.22 I tell you that this value is temporary. My words call you to the  eternal, to nourishment and rest of the spirit rather than the body.
C:10.4 the “part” of God that resides in you, not in separation but in the  eternal wholeness in which God and you together exist in truth.
C:12.23 death. He knows no pain or sorrow. His son remains with him in his  eternal home, joined with him as always in eternal completion.
C:12.23 remains with him in his eternal home, joined with him as always in  eternal completion.
C:14.5 Harmony is life. What creator would create a temporary life and hold  eternal life as a reward for death?
C:15.12 knows neither specialness nor separation. In this choice lies life  eternal.
C:20.27 being. You flow from love, an outpouring without end. You are thus  eternal. You are pure and innocent because you flow from love. What
C:21.2 Love is  eternal, and you do not as yet grasp its meaning or the meaning of
C:21.2 as a particular being, you are time-bound. You can realize the  eternal even in your temporary form if you can let go of your

T1:2.17 world and to the present but also to the higher world and the  eternal. It binds you to all those who have and will experience the
T1:5.4 human mind that cannot comprehend the all or the nothingness, the  eternal or the void. While your thought system here has been

T1:10.15 Thus are we one in a relationship of love and peace that is our  eternal home. Welcome home my brothers and sisters in Christ. Welcome
T2:1.6 place is not life but neither is it death, for even death is not an  eternal resting place in the sense that you have imagined it. Even
T2:13.5 in equal exchange by all who in creation exist together in oneness  eternal.
T3:5.8 is that in each the ego will die and the Self be reborn to life  eternal. Without rebirth of the Self, the original purpose goes
T3:12.2 came before that of the personal self did not come in time, they are  eternal, eternal levels of consciousness that still exist and have
T3:12.2 that of the personal self did not come in time, they are eternal,  eternal levels of consciousness that still exist and have always
T3:12.4 of the personal self from a time-bound state of consciousness to an  eternal state of consciousness. This change, as has been said before,
T3:16.17 and true interrelated whole. What forms the House of Truth is love  eternal and it has always encompassed you, even unto encompassing the

T3:20.15 to the temporary when I call you to offer the eternal to the  eternal. The new way will work wherever it finds willingness. You
T4:4.15 of matter to the divine that matter can become divine and thus  eternal. If you can abide in unity while in human form, you will have
D:3.2 but a call to life. It is not of the past or the future but of the  eternal now. It is within you as we speak, the tone and timbre of
D:3.19 of the new, because the elevated Self of form is new. The Self is  eternal. Your Self of elevated form is newly birthed, just as I was
D:3.19 birthed, just as I was once newly birthed even though my Self was  eternal. One of the major things we will be seeing as we proceed is
D:5.15 acceptance that recognizes that while the Self that God created is  eternal and the self of form as ancient as the sea and stars, the
D:15.11 life took on existence in form and space. It is temporal rather than  eternal. Alongside it, in the state of unity, rests all that is
D:15.11 than eternal. Alongside it, in the state of unity, rests all that is  eternal, all that is real. What is real is but another way of saying
D:15.11 is real is but another way of saying what is true. What is true is  eternal life, not temporal life. There are no degrees of life. One
D:15.11 All that lives contains the breath or wind of spirit, which is  eternal and complete.
D:15.12 Expression, movement, and being are about what is  eternal passing through what is temporal. Thus I return you to the
D:15.12 is a relationship without end. What passes through you now is the  eternal come to replace the temporal.
D:15.13 To try to capture the  eternal would be like trying to catch the wind. But just as the wind
D:16.6 any more than it is an attribute. This is because love remains in  eternal wholeness. Love cannot be learned, and so has stood apart
D:16.7 is a description of the All of All because it is whole and rests in  eternal completion and wholeness. Love is the state of unity, the
D:16.7 to you. Love, God, Creation, are all that remained in union, in  eternal completion, when form came into being.
D:Day1.5 of simple requirements, requirements of daily life rather than of  eternal life. The requirement asked of you here is not to exclude
D:Day1.5 to exclude others in whom you believe and have found a connection to  eternal life, only to accept me as who I am.
D:Day2.17 It is hard for you to believe that my resurrection heralded  eternal life when death has been a constant companion of all those
D:Day2.17 me you will not walk in my footsteps. Perhaps you will be granted  eternal life, but not until you have suffered as I suffered. This
D:Day2.24 to demonstrate that the end of suffering had come, and with it,  eternal life.
D:Day4.46 what living from love is. It means that you will resurrect to  eternal life here and now. It means no turning back, no return to
D:Day16.2 because you have felt it, is still there because consciousness is  eternal. All that you have learned that has touched your heart is
D:Day16.3 and goes and is impermanent. What is of spirit, or consciousness, is  eternal.
D:Day18.6 the human and divine and thus accomplished the resurrection of the  eternal in form. Your virgin state, the state unaltered by the
D:Day29.1 life and the individuated self, what you do and who you are, the  eternal and the temporal, joy and sadness, sickness and health, all

eternally (3)

C:P.39 as oneness is what was always shared and always will be. You are  eternally one with Christ. The only way you can identify Jesus
T4:4.18 human and the divine as a new state of being, this choice will be  eternally yours. It will be a choice of your creation, a creation
D:7.19 while creation is and is as it was created, it was created to be  eternally expanding and expressing in new ways.

eternity (22)

C:5.9 to make a mockery of who you are. Love does mark your place—but in  eternity, not here. What you leave behind is never real.
C:9.26 for they are yourself, and they are your only means to grasp  eternity even within this false reality you have made.
C:9.33 is happiness, and never has it been otherwise. God’s creation is for  eternity and has no use for time. Time too is of your making, an idea
C:21.2 eternal, and you do not as yet grasp its meaning or the meaning of  eternity. This is because, as a particular being, you are time-bound.
C:21.3 The holy relationship in its broadened form is  eternity, the eternity of the embrace. If the embrace is the source
C:21.3 The holy relationship in its broadened form is eternity, the  eternity of the embrace. If the embrace is the source of all, the one
C:21.3 If the embrace is the source of all, the one heartbeat, then it is  eternity itself. It is the face of love, its texture, taste, and

T2:4.1 is an aspect of the whole, the all of all, the alpha and the omega,  eternity and infinity. It is not only life as you know it now, but
D:7.18 to particular forms as they exist in time. Time is not an aspect of  eternity or of unity. Time is thus what has separated the self that

D:Day28.20 is the “wholeness” of time, or eternity, experienced and made real.  Eternity might thus be seen as the unchanging constant that has not
D:Day28.20 has not been affected by the variable of time. Said in another way,  eternity and time are part of the same continuum as are properties
D:Day39.38 within you. That mystery is the tension of opposites. It is time and  eternity. Love and hate. Good and evil. In other words, All and
D:Day39.38 that has existed since the beginning of time, between time and  eternity, between the attributeless love and the attribute laden
D:Day39.48 constantly creating, we are constantly coming to know anew. This is  eternity. A being in time wants to be known in time but can only be
D:Day39.48 A being in time wants to be known in time but can only be known in  eternity. You now are the bridge between time and eternity.
D:Day39.48 only be known in eternity. You now are the bridge between time and  eternity.
E.9 long as you carry this knowing within yourself, this is how long the  eternity of being will be for you. There is no one to turn out the
E.28 road? An endless quest? An endless quest for love’s expression is  eternity itself.

T3:19.15 It has been said from the beginning that your role will not be to  evangelize or to be convincing. You cannot argue the case of truth in
T3:21.24 is quite obviously an old way of thinking. While no one is called to  evangelize, all are called equally to represent the truth and to
T3:22.1 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 are called
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 of study.
T4:2.19 study. This is just a course of study. Those whom you would seek to  evangelize or convince are as holy as your Self. This holiness need

D:Day1.18 every one of us. Let me move forward and speak a moment of Adam and  Eve and the fall from paradise. Let us extend our idea of the
D:Day1.18 creation story to include the creation of man and woman. Adam and  Eve represent your birth into form. I represent your birth into what
D:Day1.18 into form. I represent your birth into what is beyond form. Adam and  Eve represent what occurred within you at the beginning of the story
D:Day1.19 The story of Adam and  Eve, and the story of Jesus, are within you. As within, so without.
D:Day1.19 are within you. As within, so without. In each of you is Adam and  Eve represented in form. In each of you am I represented in form.

C:P.3 The separated self or the ego does not learn.  Even when the ego has taken many courses and received many teachings,
C:P.13 or your discoveries of other forms of the truth, although you may  even have experienced what seemed to be miracles happening “to” you,

C:1.16 do you continue to recognize that love is at the heart of all things  even while it is not valued here? Here is a fine example that means
C:2.8 Yet you believe that to think the opposite is true insanity. Given  even your limited view of who you are, could this really be true?
C:2.9 of your ego. Your true Self does not want to forget, and cannot for  even the tiniest fraction of a second. It is precisely the inability
C:2.12 an advocate of heartlessness but wholeheartedness. If you believe  even the tiniest fraction of what is true, if you but believe you are
C:2.13 of Him, to create what is unlike to His being in every way. Would  even you attempt such folly? Would you conceive of the inconceivable?
C:2.19 this happens, the ego takes pride in what the mind has acquired,  even unto the greater peace and contentment offered by your learning.
C:2.19 on the back for your new abilities. Without your vigilance it may  even seem to have become stronger than before and fiercer in its
C:3.4 you see and those you only can imagine. To seek the “face” of God,  even in the form of Christ, is to seek for what is forever without
C:3.7 Each one you place in relationship to yourself, and so you do not  even see the form as it is but only as what it will do for you. You

C:4.19  Even you who do not recognize what love is protect what you call love
C:4.22 dream have earned the right to turn their backs upon the world  even for the scanty hours that they make believe they can do so.
C:5.6 you have forgotten that it exists. All truth lies in relationship,  even one so simple as this. The pencil is not real, nor the hand that
C:5.11 come from love, your response to them is what is guided by fear.  Even feelings of destruction and violence come from love. You are not
C:5.22 so on your own, the more you realize the futility of your efforts,  even though you do not want to admit that your efforts are futile.
C:6.4 That the universe is an interrelated whole is no longer disputed  even by science. What you have made to hide your reality has been,
C:6.10 How can it be for you if you cannot put in effort to attain it? And  even if it were so, what then? Some, you think, might choose to live
C:6.14 would indeed be a failure if it were possible for it to be so. Yet  even this possibility you would cling to, for with no chance of
C:6.20 in bodily form, perhaps, yet you imagine them happy and at peace.  Even those who claim not to believe in God or an afterlife of any
C:7.2 And yet you would withhold a piece of yourself  even from love, and this is what we must correct. For what you
C:7.4 you have determined to be unique, your existence would seem to serve  even less purpose than it does now. Thus that which is most separate,
C:7.11 that you choose this form of withholding, sometimes dozens or  even hundreds of times a day. An unreturned phone call, a bit of
C:7.11 of these in your mind, and there you build them into reasons for  even further withholding. Now you have an excuse—or several excuses
C:7.11 anyone when your day has already treated you so badly? You withhold  even a smile, because you have chosen grievances over love.
C:7.13 What you do not realize is that every situation is a relationship—  even those as simple as unreturned phone calls and snarled traffic.
C:7.18 in a manner much more whole than the perception of your split mind.  Even your language and images reflect this truth, this difference
C:7.21 the truth is different in one place than it is in another and it  even appears to be in conflict. You cling to known truths, even
C:7.21 and it even appears to be in conflict. You cling to known truths,  even though you are aware of their instability in time as well as

C:9.26 they are yourself, and they are your only means to grasp eternity  even within this false reality you have made.
C:9.31 you have no needs at all. What you truly are cannot be used, not  even by God. See you not that it is only in illusion that you can use
C:9.45 outside yourself and label drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, and  even food as destructive forces. Like the automobile you would blame
C:9.49 remain separate, you must use your brothers and sisters in order to  even maintain the illusion of your separation. Would it not simply be
C:10.1 linked with anything than you are with your own body? If you are not  even joined with this presence that you call your home, how can you

C:11.2 and your Creator are two separate things, and too seldom remember  even that you are not your own creator. You have made this separation
C:11.3 quit before you begin in order to keep from failing one more time.  Even those who feel the power of these words within their hearts and
C:11.14 made go, and realize that willingness does not negate free will. Yet  even while you cannot yet quite give up your guardianship of it, it
C:12.5 love. You are looking for the safety and security of a loving home,  even if it is one only of philosophy. You look for the soft assurance
C:12.5 thinks, “If I could just be sure…” and stops there, for you are not  even sure of what it is you seek assurance. And yet you know what
C:12.8 the others follow—and through no effort on your part at all. And  even this one change is not a change at all, for it merely seeks to
C:12.13 ceased to be seen here God’s image was lost to earth forever? Could  even one have come and gone and left this void forever more unfilled?
C:12.21 But just as your ideas do not take on a life of their own  even though they at times seem to, this idea as well had no ability
C:13.5 is love. You will want to give it many names at first, and might not  even recognize it as love, for it will come without all the longing
C:13.10 is money or the use of any other thing you value. And there is not  even the slightest chance of being made to look foolish by what you
C:14.11 and child, of best friends, of a marriage or a partnership, or  even that of a mentor or student. Whatever the relationship’s
C:14.15 other than fear. You might call this desire pride or security, or  even accept that it is vanity, before you would call it fear. But
C:14.19 your own, for as long as it maintains its autonomy, which it must,  even its nearness is not enough. And so what you attempt next is an
C:14.20 Some may realize that they are afraid of losing love, and  even speak of it and try to alleviate the fear with official
C:14.20 and trust, for their feelings remain strong despite their fear. For  even those who fear no deception must remain afraid of the great
C:15.4 make another special could make a difference to many—or possibly  even to anyone. You just want to love your mate and children, your
C:15.9 seems the ultimate act of disloyalty to your own kind. To  even think that you could change and be unlike others of your kind,
C:15.11 is a way to do so, a way that will not harm any of those you love  even while betraying all they would hold dear. But which would you
C:16.10 mind would have you believe it does. For your split mind judges  even love and opposes it on the basis that it uses no judgment! Here
C:16.10 no judgment! Here you can see the value that you place on judgment,  even to the ridiculous notion that you can judge judgment itself. You
C:16.10 from what your mind would bid it do, and this is why you fear it  even while you yearn for it. This is what the split mind would call
C:16.11 Again your memory of creation serves you,  even if it has not served you well. It is this memory that tells you
C:16.13 against disaster. And yet you cling to all attempts to do so  even while knowing they are ineffective.
C:16.14 vigilance because you know no other way to ensure your safety, and  even if you cannot guarantee your safety against everything all of
C:16.15 you love as well as your own self is to be asked to live a life of  even greater risk than that which you live now.
C:16.17 thus reinforces the idea of separation, making of it something  even darker than it started out as being. It no longer seems like a
C:16.20 Might makes right is a saying that is known to many of you, and  even those who know the saying not believe in the tenets it
C:17.3 claim that you are aware of all that exists within the universe, or  even that you fully know your own Self. What is fearful about the
C:17.5 so this assumption that what is unknown must be bad cannot be valid,  even by your own standards of evidence. Yet, in your estimation, the
C:17.5 the reason that you use is loyal to the world you see. This is why  even Heaven, which you would label good, is not wholly good in your
C:17.6 had children, taken mind-altering drugs, or attempted strenuous or  even terrifying physical feats. But all of you without exception have
C:17.6 and dreaming, being married, using drugs, or having children; but  even those of you who would listen to what the experts have to say
C:17.7 your plans and rail against everything that interferes with them,  even knowing in advance that your greatest efforts at organization
C:17.16 is to only give thought to forgiveness. This many of you will give,  even to deciding to forgive despite your better judgment. See you not
C:17.16 See you not how little sense this makes, how insincere this  even sounds?
C:18.1 stories of many cultures and religions. When you accept this,  even in non-literal terms, as the story of the separation, you accept
C:18.2 the globe. I am among those whose hand you hold. All are linked,  even if each one is not holding the hand of every other one. If one

C:18.21 your feelings of lack of love or fear. What we have as yet talked  even less of, however, is what emotion covers up, and the stillness
C:19.6 Your saving grace is that  even a separated self yearns for union and knowledge of its Creator.
C:19.8 What my brothers and sisters saw in me allowed me to be who I was,  even while in human form. I tell you truly if you were to see any of
C:19.11 witnessed to your arrival just as the scriptures witnessed to mine.  Even while some of my words were distorted or misinterpreted, you can
C:19.15 that another’s experience will not bring this knowledge to you, not  even my experience. If this were so, all of those who read of my life
C:19.16 are ideas quite foreign to you, and truly, while you remain here,  even experiences beyond thoughts and words you will apply word and
C:19.24 idea of self-redemption has long been a culprit that has kept union,  even with your own Self, undesirable to you. The concept that in
C:19.24 The concept that in oneness there is no need for blame or guilt or  even for redemption is inconceivable to the separate mind. But not to
C:20.1 quite different from that which you have felt before. Your heart may  even feel as if it is stretching outward, straining heavenward, near

C:20.21 you can quit thinking even of holy things, holy men and women, and  even divine beings, even the one God. Is not the embrace itself holy?
C:20.21 even of holy things, holy men and women, and even divine beings,  even the one God. Is not the embrace itself holy? Is not the sunrise
C:20.35 You have not before now been able to  even imagine knowing what you do. You hope to have moments of clarity
C:20.35 moment, what you have done, what you hope to do in the future. But  even these moments of clarity are fractional. They seldom have any

C:21.2 a particular being, you are time-bound. You can realize the eternal  even in your temporary form if you can let go of your particularity.
C:21.3 conceptualized. It is an abstract rather than a particular concept,  even while having a seeming structure that your heart can feel.
C:21.7 Mind and heart interpret meaning in different ways. You do not  even begin to understand the enormity of this conflict or what it
C:21.7 as natural. You see that there are two ways of viewing a situation,  even if you do not label one way of viewing or perceiving being of
C:22.3 picture is the relationship between the globe and the axis,  even though you realize the axis allows the globe to spin.

T1:2.7 have learned by using their skills and knowledge in the world for  even greater rewards. These rewards have further emphasized the
T1:3.3 it is. The ego-mind sees not anything but what it wants as gifts and  even these it sees not as gifts but as rewards. The ego-mind barters
T1:3.9 turning of water into wine. What harm could come from it? And yet  even this you would fear for if you asked for such a miracle and it
T1:3.19 at the suggestion that you need proof to shore up your faith, balk,  even while you remain convinced that a failure of such proof would
T1:3.20 convinced of your own power. How could this possibly be important?  Even were you to possess such power, surely it is a power that is of
T1:3.20 not you for its accomplishment. Better not to mess with such things.  Even the thought of it leads you to ideas of magic and power that is
T1:3.21 of Jesus and of the saints and that is surely where they belong. To  even implore them would be heresy.
T1:3.23 so much suffering in so many places. Surely you wouldn’t want that  even if it could come to be. Indeed this would require the auspices

T1:4.5 an object to you, no effect is possible from the sunset. The sun,  even during the most blazing sunset, has at times remained no more
T1:4.12 You may answer that there are many,  even within this Course’s definition of gift, the most obvious of
T1:7.1 achievement would complete you and take away your feelings of lack.  Even the most successful among you have found that your worldly
T1:7.2  Even the most spiritual and godly among you accept suffering. Even
T1:7.2 Even the most spiritual and godly among you accept suffering.  Even those who understand as completely as possible the truth of who
T1:7.4 But I have not yet said that the time of the Holy Spirit is ending  even though I have stated that the time of the second coming of
T1:8.3 event changes over time and it may take a hundred or a thousand or  even two thousand years for the real truth to be realized. Even
T1:8.3 or even two thousand years for the real truth to be realized.  Even though many versions of the truth have been accepted previously,
T1:8.5 suffer the separation, you need no longer suffer the separation.  Even though the resurrection returned not life to the form I once
T1:8.5 resurrected Christ who exists in all of you, bringing resurrection  even unto your forms. I became the Word incarnate upon my
T1:8.5 after me are not as I was but as I Am. Does this not make sense,  even in your human terms of evolution? You are the resurrected and
T1:8.7 Now, how could one man’s resurrection be the way or  even a way. How can resurrection provide a path or example for you to
T1:10.6 to read you do not return to learning to read over and over again  even while you may continue to read for a lifetime. You can continue
T2:1.5 place is indeed hallowed ground and an earned respite, a demarcation  even between the old way and the new way of living. But it is not the
T2:1.6 This place is not life but neither is it death, for  even death is not an eternal resting place in the sense that you have
T2:1.6 not an eternal resting place in the sense that you have imagined it.  Even rest, once truly learned, is simply rest. It is not a resting
T2:1.8 you think in terms of place because you think in terms of form. Thus  even I have often used the idea of place as a teaching aid. But you
T2:1.9  Even the desires you may have once identified as hoping to develop
T2:2.2 use this phrase. But many recognize that they have a calling  even unto things the world considers mundane.
T2:3.4 something real and learning something that is of relevance  even within the daily life you currently move through. Now you must
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 waiting
T2:5.1 in nature. Other calls will come as announcements, signs, or  even as seeming demands. All call you to the present where response
T2:6.1 in the place we are calling within and your heart knows not of time  even while it adheres to the rules of time you would place upon
T2:6.8 exist fully accomplished within the seed that is the Christ in you  even while you continue to grow and change. Physical form and action
T2:6.9 You are creating the state of unity as a new reality for your Self  even though it is actually a return to what has always been. You are
T2:6.10 in unity in the present, in the here and now, so that you exist—  even within form—as the only Son of God, the Christ, the word made
T2:7.6 This source is the ego.  Even now, the ego will take every opportunity that arises to prove to
T2:9.4 there has been a loss such as with the loss of a job or loved one or  even of the promise of some service. When you think in such a way you
T2:9.5 to possessions, you but continue to feel as if you “have” needs  even long after they have been met. Since I have already stated that
T2:10.3 you? You might feel frustrated with your memory at such a time and  even say something such as “my brain just isn’t working right today.”
T2:10.18 you have intended for it to go, you do not feel gifted or blessed  even when you may have looked back often on situations that did not
T2:11.1 created and how you remain. This is the truth of who you are and  even, in your own terms, a fact of your existence. Earlier this was
T2:11.2  Even though you no longer want to be other than who you are, and even
T2:11.2 Even though you no longer want to be other than who you are, and  even though you now have a much clearer understanding of who you are,
T2:11.3 and strife. It is the battle that in your imaginings has extended  even to the angels. The ego is the dragon that must be slain, the
T2:11.12 This is the key to understanding the truth of these statements. For  even while you have chosen separation, this choice did not preclude
T2:11.15 is nonsense, or but a form of the insanity that is prevalent still,  even in your thinking. You do not realize that this source of
T3:1.11 presented yourself to be could be two completely different selves.  Even within the illusion in which you existed there was a self kept
T3:1.13 distinguish the personal self from the ego-self. There is a danger  even now in focusing upon the self of the body, as this self has been
T3:1.13 of the body, as this self has been so long bound to the ego-self.  Even with the ego once and finally vanquished, the patterns of the
T3:2.8 that is called art is art, and not all that you call self is Self,  even while both may represent the truth as you perceive of it.
T3:3.5 could be rightly placed. Your depression was blamed on the past.  Even your successes were often claimed to be at the expense of
T3:4.1 behind your addictions or to go on a diet or a fast. It will not  even tell you to be kind. It does not tell you to be responsible and
T3:5.3 by a loss of self due to illness or addiction, depression, or  even physical exhaustion. All these things you have brought to
T3:5.6 time in which I lived it, and has an appropriateness that continues  even now. I walked the earth in order to reveal a God of love. The
T3:5.6 suffered. The answer was that God’s love was so mighty that he would  even allow the death of his only son to redeem the world.
T3:6.4 old as time itself and the cause of bitterness being able to exist,  even within your hearts.
T3:6.5 you have always been convinced existed in the hearts of some, but  even being that it is just another word, it is one chosen to
T3:7.4 You are who you are and remain endlessly who you are,  even here within the human experience. This is the idea that is
T3:7.6 You took yourself into these many rooms and in some you were  even capable of representing your true Self. This representation of
T3:7.9 Now you have seized upon  even this idea and called it not treasure but theory and related it
T3:8.8 one change could bring about all the changes you would imagine that  even an army of angels could not bring about. While such a thought
T3:8.13 Has not a part of you always known that suffering does not have to be  even while you have accepted that it is? Let us now put an end to
T3:10.14 your memory. You will soon forget the thought system of the ego-self  even though, when encountering those who still use that thought
T3:11.15 You will, in truth, for quite some time, be striving to remain aware  even that you have changed dwelling places. There is a reason for
T3:12.7 to you here is something completely new, something you have not  even dreamed of. This state you have not even dared to dream of is a
T3:12.7 new, something you have not even dreamed of. This state you have not  even dared to dream of is a state in which only God’s laws of love
T3:12.7 dared to dream of is a state in which only God’s laws of love exist  even within the realm of physicality. What this means is that all
T3:13.10 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 one thing a day that
T3:14.5 who will be visited by great change are but those who desire it. Yet  even those who desire great change will find these great changes will
T3:14.13 assured that what you are called to is a life so new that you cannot  even imagine it. Imagine not the past and make for yourself no cause
T3:15.3 expectations of continued special treatment within the relationship.  Even, and sometimes especially, what is considered poor behavior can
T3:15.5 you often act “as if” you believe a new beginning is possible,  even while awaiting the lapse that will surely prove to you that the
T3:15.5 loved one of an alcoholic can similarly approach each day with faith  even while suspiciously looking for signs that faith is unwarranted.
T3:16.4 in ways that you would like and while its limitations may seem  even more frustrating than before, I am also confident in saying that
T3:16.17 House of Truth is love eternal and it has always encompassed you,  even unto encompassing the house of illusion that you made to obscure
T3:18.9 of the truth. Thus your eyes will learn to observe only the truth,  even unto seeing what before but seemed unobservable.
T3:19.12 led to the old reality, a reality that will still exist for some  even after it changes completely for you.
T3:19.13 This will seem  even more inconsistent with a benevolent universe than it once did
T3:19.14 this disparity would be divisive and extremely uncomfortable and  even rage-producing for those still living in illusion. But it will
T3:20.6 is given despite the “fact” that it is unwarranted. Yet  even while you offer encouragement, you worry about giving “false”
T3:20.7 seemingly already written, and think that is more realistic and  even helpful than living by the laws of truth.
T3:20.8 begin 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
T3:20.9 While you need not act in ways inconsistent with compassion or  even verbalize your new beliefs, you are being told directly here
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
T3:20.18 Thus you are released from a burden never meant to rest upon you  even if it is one you might have freely chosen. Your task is to
T3:21.11  Even while this experience is experience of an ego-self, it is still
T3:21.12 And  even more so than these things, although this hasn’t as often been
T3:21.12 few things, in addition to your name and family of origin ever are.  Even the most materialistic among you rarely count what you have
T3:21.13 in favor of equal rights or environmental protection. And you may,  even while recognizing, as you surely do, that these beliefs are
T3:21.17 Now however, you are being called to accept your true identity  even while you retain the form of your personal self. As your true
T3:21.17 that of a self who exists in separation, this would seem impossible.  Even while your belief system has changed and you believe that you
T3:21.20 answer lies in realizing that your former identity does not matter,  even while realizing that it will serve your new purpose. Further,
T3:21.20 realizing that it will serve your new purpose. Further, there are  even two aspects to this contradictory seeming answer. One is that
T3:22.1 you may be happy to learn that you are not called to evangelize or  even to a leadership role, you know that you are called to something
T3:22.2 It would not be available, and it would not be known to you. So  even while I have said that no one is called to leadership and while
T3:22.9 self, and your attention has begun to wander from this topic  even as it is being concluded.
T4:1.11 at the same time, it must be seen that your choice matters in time,  even if all will make the same choice eventually.
T4:1.12 As was said within “A Treatise on the Personal Self,”  even the house of illusion is held within the embrace of love, of
T4:1.13 not; that this time might just be different than any other time.  Even as you begin to tentatively let this excitement grow, your
T4:1.14 be your science or technology, your advanced mental abilities, or  even your leisure time that has opened up this opportunity. The only
T4:1.20 and in the contrast learning did occur and has continued to occur  even unto this time. You have learned much of the nature of the truth
T4:1.26 less than the truth and will soon begin looking earnestly for it.  Even the ego-self will be perceived clearly by these, and they will
T4:2.11 one achieves but opens the door for others and this is known to you.  Even those who did not desire to fly in a plane when this feat was
T4:2.12 follow in time will do so more easily, with less effort, and with  even greater success. They may consider themselves “better than” for
T4:2.13 Thus, you must examine your intention  even now and remove from it all ideas that were of the old way. You
T4:2.16 any others without knowing that the truth of who they are is present  even though it might seem not to be? This is the power of the
T4:2.22 in some concept of unity or oneness, but you have also denied  even the possibility of experiencing your own direct relationship
T4:2.23 to realize the relationship that exists with the unseen and  even the seen. You have moved through life believing you have
T4:3.6 relationships fearful as well. Trust became something to be earned.  Even the most loving parent, like unto your most loving image of God,
T4:3.13 change. That the nature of matter is one of change. That the nature,  even of form, once returned to its natural state of love, is one of
T4:4.2 taken to extremes. Inherent within the extreme is the balance.  Even in the biblical description of creation was a day of rest spoken
T4:4.3 this balance between old generations and new seems necessary and  even crucial. One generation must pass to make room for the new.
T4:4.4  Even before the planet reached the state of over-population, this
T4:4.5 God.” In the time in which I lived, the idea of inheritance was an  even stronger idea, an idea with much more power than in current
T4:4.12 Christ-consciousness. I am calling you to everlasting consciousness  even while you still abide in form. To be cognizant or aware of
T4:5.11 choice now. This is not a choice automatic to you in human form or  even upon the death of your human form. When you die, you do not die
T4:7.3 come ever closer to the truth by means of science, technology, and  even art and literature. Those who allow themselves to experience
T4:7.6 body. Sustaining this harmony will keep your body in perfect health,  even while the manner of this perfection of your health will remain
T4:7.8 continue to learn through the full variety of the human experience  even after it is unnecessary. Why? Because it is a choice, pure and
T4:8.9 be flat—God saw and knew to be consistent with the nature of man,  even while the fear and struggle that this impatience generated was
T4:8.12 To take away your freedom in order to protect you,  even from yourself, would not have been an act of love. To take away
T4:8.16 and your purpose here. To learn everything there is to know about  even one subject, and to call that learning complete, is an error. If
T4:8.16 is an error. If you rethink this definition you will see that  even in regards to the learning of one subject it is not the truth.
T4:9.1 Learning is not meant to last. This is why  even this coursework comes to an end. It comes to an end here and now
T4:12.16 Has not this pushing against limits been called progress? Have not  even the most devastating misuses of power attained through this
T4:12.20 singular consciousness, to let doubt of yourself take hold of you.  Even though you are abiding now in the state of Christ-consciousness,
T4:12.27 design, a pattern that was part of the pattern of your thoughts,  even after the ego came to rule your thought system. Without this
T4:12.31 help you to adapt to the truth of a sharing you will have received  even before it is communicated through the means to which you are
D:1.8 final surrender. The surrender of the control of the personal self.  Even with the ego gone, the personal self can continue to move about
D:1.13 as you open your heart and allow your true identity to be what is,  even within your form. You are in grace and union with the Source and
D:1.20 Is a piece of music not received by you  even when you may be one of thousands or millions who hear it? Does
D:1.21 an incredible feat by allowing and accepting the state of unity  even though you could not learn how to do so. This has been the
D:2.6 inability to claim the new identity could at times be acceptable and  even appropriate. In regard to the learning that you have now
D:2.10 It is proper now to deny the modes of learning,  even when they seemed to work for you in the past. That they seemed
D:2.19 so entrenched that no new learning is seen as possible or desirable  even though the systems and patterns are known not to work. In truth,
D:3.6 does not mean, however, that you accept goodness and deny evil or  even that you accept love and deny fear. How can this be?
D:3.19 of elevated form is newly birthed, just as I was once newly birthed  even though my Self was eternal. One of the major things we will be
D:3.21 simply a shared quality of oneness. It is not in need of learning or  even understanding. It is. Awareness of what is, is a quality of
D:4.8 quickly replace the life of the inmate if you will but let it do so.  Even those who actually are incarcerated in the prison system you
D:4.16 pattern came most of your false ideas, ideas that made it difficult  even for the divinely inspired thought systems to provide the
D:4.26 and so long barred that they may as well be prison walls. You may  even be a prisoner in truth, and wonder how, save a grand escape, you
D:6.6 seen it, for everything that exists in form is of the same Source.  Even those things you have made you have not made from nothing. There
D:6.6 this cannot be repeated enough, creation begins with what is. And so  even the creations you have made are only distinct from what was
D:6.7 to have rigidity and a particular meaning. But they still are real,  even if they are not as they appear to be to the body’s eyes.
D:6.9 it would have been impossible to repopulate the earth afterwards  even if it had taken place as described.

D:6.14 is open to the discovery of something new and “unbelievable” and  even “scientifically impossible,” as well as to the creation of
D:6.19 a person who has exhibited unhealthy habits gets sick, you think,  even if you would not say, that they “did it to themselves” or that
D:7.16 Observation takes place in time.  Even while you have been called to observe what is, what you are
D:7.22 has left so many unfulfilled, as environmental concerns mount,  even the perceived survival needs are leading you toward new answers
D:7.24 over his environment will come to an abrupt and painful end. Some  even fear an evolutionary setback, and see any threat against
D:9.4 your life without reaching the place of fulfillment you have sought.  Even now, when you have learned all that you are in need of learning,
D:9.4 you have learned all that you are in need of learning, the pattern,  even of your wholeheartedness, remains one of thought. This pattern

D:11.2 You might  even consider this Dialogue the written notes of my thoughts. In this
D:11.2 be insane. Are you willing any longer to see me as a lecturer, or  even as a great teacher? Am I but a giver of information from whom
D:11.12 to the question your thoughts cannot quite comprehend well enough to  even articulate, much less to answer.
D:12.9 still a useful distinction, as “thinking” is seen as what you “do.”  Even in your dictionary definition, being “thoughtful” is seen as a
D:12.10 to be the more meditative version of your “thinking,” often  even resulting in a conclusion to your thinking, a summary of the
D:12.18 self was involved, somehow, in this coming to know of the truth,  even if this coming to know of the truth wasn’t quite “of” the “you”
D:13.5 you did not know before in form, that it is important, monumental  even; but you will be unable to “see” this knowing, to envision it in
D:13.8 to truly understand that you are not alone and separate, and that  even the coming to know of the state of unity is a shared coming to
D:14.14 state of unity is what is real, yet you have known this reality not,  even though it is the more subtle memory of this state that is behind
D:15.10 to do here? With our continuing work of creation? Would this not  even be consistent with spirit existing in every living form from the
D:16.9 You are alive. You have form. You think and feel. You have  even been told that you would cease to be without the existence of
D:16.12 as if you still have a long way to go. You have often thought that  even though you may be done with learning, you don’t feel quite
D:16.12 be done with learning, you don’t feel quite complete, or possibly  even feel as if learning has not quite been accomplished in you. This
D:16.18 you thinking that you are “acting” as if you have changed, while  even within your new actions you see archetypes of the previously

D:17.21 have traveled so far to reach. You are here and desire fills you,  even while you know the glory of having arrived.
D:17.23 Only in myth is this response to a specific question, but  even the specific questions of myth, when seen truly, were questions
D:Day2.8 of this feeling arises from the erroneous idea that you can fail,  even here. These are the temptations that confront those who have
D:Day2.11 Now is the time for acceptance,  even of these actions that you would rather not accept. They
D:Day2.14 We speak not of forgiveness or  even atonement here, for these have been thoroughly discussed
D:Day3.2 and you are most willing to have new insight, new information, and  even new discoveries, enter through your mind—because this is known
D:Day3.4 love. Most of you approached learning through the heart with  even more openness than you did new ideas about love, not realizing
D:Day3.6 There is one area that is greeted with  even more anger and more resistance in regard to learning of all
D:Day3.7 more peace, your mind that will accept comfort of a certain type,  even extending to a new comfortableness of being. You believe having
D:Day3.8 for your life will assist you in feeling more loved and possibly  even assist you in finding some one to love. You may believe that
D:Day3.12 thoroughly learned during the time of learning that letting it go,  even now, still torments you with worry and anger. It is the idea of
D:Day3.13 and not your gifts. Everything coming with a price. Abundance comes,  even to those gifted, only through the exploitation of gifts.
D:Day3.13 gifted, only through the exploitation of gifts. Abundance remains,  even to those born with it, only through the exploitation of others.
D:Day3.14 To think in such terms, and then to see such thoughts as  even capable of having spiritual value, is something you think of as
D:Day3.14 of as insane. There seems no remedy, and so you would rather not  even attempt an understanding of how things might be different. As
D:Day3.14 these ideas are still with most of you to one degree or another.  Even though you know these are false ideas, and in that knowing may
D:Day3.14 Even though you know these are false ideas, and in that knowing may  even say to yourself as you read them that you no longer think in
D:Day3.17 or abundance as being “given” when it is hard work to attain. Not  even when it seems to come from some event of luck or fate. We are
D:Day3.21 a position in which you feel you need to ask for money from others,  even from a bank, is seen as a dire situation indeed. This asking
D:Day3.21 indeed. This asking will likely be an ordeal of some consequence.  Even those who are seen by others as constant “takers,” unafraid to
D:Day3.22 of you truly think that money would not solve most of your problems.  Even those of you on this spiritual path think money is among the
D:Day3.23 of your life because it was the reality of the learning life.  Even if you are one of those others consider lucky, one of those who
D:Day3.24 not of your survival. It is the pattern of the ego’s survival, and  even though the ego is no longer with you, the pattern remains
D:Day3.27 accept a response to what you desire. Remember that we are headed  even beyond desire, and know that desire must first be met before you
D:Day3.29 abundance. You think you could more easily find love than money,  even those of you who have felt loveless for too long to contemplate.
D:Day3.31 or spend it only with trepidation and an eye upon the bank account?  Even those of you who would feel prepared to let it bring you joy
D:Day3.45 win, in this insane argument about abundance, is an acknowledgment,  even from God, that you do not have what you need, that you are
D:Day3.46  Even those of you who would claim to know this anger not, who would
D:Day3.46 silence for God’s provision, are still waiting for provision.  Even those of you who have asked God for abundance, and opened

D:Day3.57 Do you see the difference,  even here, in belief and acceptance? Can you begin to see acceptance
D:Day4.8  Even after the onset of language, children continue to learn without
D:Day4.25 how many of the truths I expressed were still available to you,  even within your religious institutions. You feel, perhaps, that you

D:Day4.34 new. You realize that this is the purpose of our time together here  even though you have not put this purpose into words and put these
D:Day5.1 no longer needed once a door has been unlocked and passed through.  Even though it will not be permanently needed, however, this point of

D:Day6.2 too much anxiety and exclude too many, this is not the only, or  even the major reason for this chosen method.
D:Day6.7 reactions might validate the artist’s instinct and encourage  even more boldness. Negative reactions might cause the artist to

D:Day6.23 is in a position to be able to begin to perform with any certainty.  Even learning is accelerated by hands-on activities, by doing what

D:Day8.16 associated with the “term” of certainty will cause you to be  even less certain than you were before. You will be less certain in
D:Day8.19 of that which you do not like in yourself and others and  even to, at times, the false sense of certainty about your
D:Day9.7 freedom of feeling. And yet if the truth be admitted, you know that  even this is not quite true. You know that you censor your own
D:Day9.12 of the time of learning. It became an image in your mind, and maybe  even within your heart, through the process of learning. It arose
D:Day9.21 To represent an image is to become an image. To become an image,  even an idealized image, is to still become a false idol or even what

D:Day18.1 to facilitate the creation of change through a specific function  even while moving into the new as they do so. Each way is as needed
D:Day19.12 The fear of losing the self is still the primary fear,  even among those who have never found the self. They fear losing the

D:Day21.2 This was true  even within the pattern of learning you have been so familiar with,

D:Day37.15 But more fundamentally than  even all of this, you might ask, if you are one in being with God, is
D:Day37.15 it being said that you are being God? That you have been being God  even within the limited parameters of life as you have known it?
D:Day37.16 in that you feel a bond, a link between heaven and earth, and  even some possibility of communication through prayer or other

T1:5.6 A part of you is aware of this and as fearful of the all of  everything as of the void of nothing. You feel as if you are headed
T1:5.8 you must move into a state that is real. Nothing is as real as  everything, and is what some of you will or have experienced as a

T3:9.4 within the universe of truth and that the universe of truth contains  everything within its benevolent embrace. No one stands beyond the
T3:10.1 it with meaning rather than allowing the meaning that exists in  everything to be remembered or known. Thus are more practical lessons

T4:5.3 this one energy existing in everything, and creating the life in  everything, is Christ-consciousness. It is also what we have been
T4:5.6 God can thus be seen as the All of  everything and life, or the Body of Christ, as all that makes up the
T4:5.6 as all that makes up the seemingly individual parts of the All of  everything. Christ-consciousness is your awareness of this.
T4:8.5 Creation in form had a starting point. This is the nature of  everything that lives in form. It has a starting point from which it
T4:8.14 is synonymous with creation? You like to think that God knows  everything, and God surely knows everything that is. But
T4:8.14 You like to think that God knows everything, and God surely knows  everything that is. But consciousness of what is, the

T4:12.36 Make no mistake that what is asked of us is  everything. What is asked is our total willingness to abandon the
T4:12.36 the new. But also make no mistake that what is given to us is  everything. All the power of creation is released onto us. Let us

D:5.9 Thus must it be now with  everything in your world. Everywhere you look the lie of false
D:5.10 previously have thought of as inconsequential in the light of truth.  Everything given represents the truth.
D:5.11 You will not arrive at the truth through thinking about what  everything means. This is the old way that led to so much
D:5.13 for such is a desire to think through once again the meaning of  everything and to have a tool to help you do so. This would assume
D:5.22 call, to acceptance. See the importance of this acceptance to  everything that is still to come. Hesitate no longer. Let your
D:6.6 —and it is—it is not perhaps as you have previously seen it, for  everything that exists in form is of the same Source. Even those
D:6.6 call the seeds of the truly real, or the energy of creation, in  everything that exists in form.
D:6.27 The self of form, as form, could never truly experience the All of  Everything that is the natural state of the formless. But the true
D:6.27 the state of Christ-consciousness, sharing in unity, the All of  Everything. So these two states, the state of form and the state of
D:7.27 shared consciousness, the circle of unity. In truth, this circle is  everything, the All of All, the universe, God. But just as the Earth
D:7.27 will not always be aware of this circle of the Self as the All of  Everything, and it will, in fact, be helpful as we begin, to imagine
D:7.29 shared consciousness, rather than with consciousness of the All of  Everything. This territory we will call the territory of your
D:7.29 may be, it will still at times give way to awareness of the All of  Everything.

D:Day11.6 relationship is All because it is all that is knowable. The All of  Everything cannot be known any more than can nothingness. The All of
D:Day11.6 Everything cannot be known any more than can nothingness. The All of  Everything is unknowable. Thus you are the knowable of God. You are
D:Day11.6 of All with Its Self. Separation is as unknowable as the All of  Everything. To be separate in truth would be to not exist. To be the
D:Day11.6 To be separate in truth would be to not exist. To be the All of  Everything would be to not know existence. Only what exists in
D:Day11.6 exists in relationship knows that it exists. Thus relationship is  everything. Relationship is the truth. Relationship is consciousness.
D:Day11.7 man. It is the relationship that allows the awareness that God is  everything. It has been called wisdom, Sophia, spirit. It is that
D:Day12.4 The space of the One Self is  everything. Space is neither divided nor separated nor occupied by
D:Day13.6 and apparent in this boundary-less Self of form. This Self is  everything and everyone. Because it is everything and everyone it is
D:Day13.6 Self of form. This Self is everything and everyone. Because it is  everything and everyone it is also the self of the void, the void of
D:Day14.1 Self. Acceptance is necessary because escape is not possible.  Everything that is, is with us, which is why we are the accomplished
D:Day15.1 the dialogue. When you fully realize that you are in-formed by  everything and everyone in creation, you will have entered the
D:Day15.2 To inform is to make known. Thus you can be made known by  everything and everyone in creation just as everything and everyone
D:Day15.2 you can be made known by everything and everyone in creation just as  everything and everyone in creation can be made known by you. We have
D:Day15.2 you to come to know it. The unknown and the known exist together in  everything and everyone. Thus your willingness to be made known and
D:Day15.21 because entering the dialogue is an all-encompassing state in which  everything and everyone interacts with you through the exchange of
D:Day16.1  Everything that can’t be seen but is, is consciousness. Accepting
D:Day16.1 Everything that can’t be seen but is, is consciousness. Accepting  everything that can’t be seen, including the unknown, is full
D:Day16.11 This relates to  everything, not only your response to sickness or crisis situations,
D:Day16.14 thus does not include either love or fear. This is because love is  everything and fear is nothing.
D:Day16.15 feeling and all thought, all of which were of love because love is  everything. All feeling and all thoughts of love extended into the
D:Day16.16 them with love, the spacious Self will be whole, for it will embrace  everything—as love, which is everything—embraces it. This is
D:Day16.16 will be whole, for it will embrace everything—as love, which is  everything—embraces it. This is paradise re-found.

D:Day18.2 represent God and Christ-consciousness, the extension of God. God is  everything in heaven and on earth and is in everything on heaven and
D:Day18.2 extension of God. God is everything in heaven and on earth and is in  everything on heaven and on earth. Thus, God represents the world
D:Day20.7 One Self in its many expressions. You are the known and the unknown.  Everything is both the known and the unknown.

D:Day22.3 The universal is everything. The channel is what, from among  everything, is allowed reception and expression. Some will find many
D:Day22.8 you awaiting your expression. Awareness of union with God exists in  everything. It is there in every tree and every flower, in every

D:Day32.18 be the consciousness we all share? Could not God’s relationship to  everything be what differentiates God from us and us from God? So
D:Day32.19 own? Could you see that God’s power stems from His relationship to  everything rather than from His being? This is the easiest way to say
D:Day32.20 is powerful—in relationship. Because God is in relationship with  everything, God is All Powerful. Because you are in a state of
D:Day33.7 whole, and that whole is love. In other words, every relationship,  everything that comes to you, every event, every situation, is of
D:Day33.15 we become powerful. To realize that you are in relationship with  everything and everyone all of the time, is to realize the full
D:Day33.15 of your power. You cannot realize that you are in relationship with  everything and everyone all of the time and retain the desire to use
D:Day33.15 is impossible. The realization that you are in relationship with  everything and everyone all of the time is the realization of oneness
D:Day34.2 the same. In relationship, the difference between all and nothing is  everything. So too is it with creation and destruction. Without
D:Day34.2 In relationship, the difference between creation and destruction is  everything.
D:Day34.3 is needed to create difference. However, relationship with  everything creates sameness—or the very oneness in being that we
D:Day35.1 relationship to God, who is your being, you can know relationship to  everything, because in this one relationship, you are in relationship
D:Day35.3 relationship, relationship is also God. God is the relationship of  everything to everything.
D:Day35.3 relationship is also God. God is the relationship of everything to  everything.
D:Day35.4 God, that others are one with you, that God is the relationship of  everything to everything, or that you are the relationship of
D:Day35.4 are one with you, that God is the relationship of everything to  everything, or that you are the relationship of everything to God.
D:Day35.4 of everything to everything, or that you are the relationship of  everything to God. Everything that is shared with God is shared with
D:Day35.4 everything, or that you are the relationship of everything to God.  Everything that is shared with God is shared with all because God is
D:Day35.4 with God is shared with all because God is in relationship with  everything. It has been said that when you reach awareness of the
D:Day35.5 unaware of your being that you were not sharing the relationship of  everything with God? As long as you have known that you are a self,
D:Day35.17 creation is continuous and ongoing. It is continuous and ongoing in  everything that has been created, including you. This does not mean,
D:Day35.21 of the All of All. How can you choose when what you create is  everything?
D:Day36.7 When you start over, knowing that what you have been given is  everything, your creatorship of your experience is a totally
D:Day36.10 and nothing without relationship. In relationship, the difference is  everything. This same difference is what is meant when it is said
D:Day36.10 your awareness of unity and relationship, it was as if God was  everything and you were nothing, or as if you were everything and God
D:Day36.10 was as if God was everything and you were nothing, or as if you were  everything and God was nothing. But just as with all and nothing,
D:Day36.11 being—simply existing at the opposite end of the continuum of  everything that is creation.
D:Day36.14 or instinctively—has always been yours. The power to create—  everything from weapons of mass destruction to cathedrals of towering
D:Day37.4 household, in a city, in a state, in a country, in a world, wherein  everything has a separate name and purpose. In a sense, this is the
D:Day37.9 you want to believe that there is a compassionate being in charge of  everything, looking out for you, there to help when you are in need.
D:Day37.14 yourself, God, and fate to be benevolent, or you may believe that  everything, including yourself, works against you. You may rely more

C:P.42 Your willingness to learn is  evident or you would not be here. You have been told and told again

C:6.16 The Bible says, “The sun shines and the rain falls on the good and  evil alike.” Why then do you think that peace is endless sunshine?
C:9.34 you look upon this world with guilt and see it as evidence of your  evil nature. It reinforces your belief that you have changed too much

T2:11.15 and defender of good and the ego acting as devil and defender of  evil. This is nonsense, or but a form of the insanity that is
T2:11.15 that seems real to you within your world. This battle of good and  evil, while you believe in it still, will be demonstrated before you
T2:11.16 in perceived battles, valiantly fighting for good to win out over  evil. But this is not the new way and the lack of value from this
T3:4.3 self. You cannot have an idea of goodness without having an idea of  evil. You cannot have an idea of an ideal state without having an

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:8.21 superior, the ultimate achievement of the world and all its years of  evolution. There are days you will feel quite of the earth, as if
C:12.12 than that which you inhabit now; but certainly within the laws of  evolution, you have changed as little as the birds of the air or fish
T1:8.5 but as I Am. Does this not make sense, even in your human terms of  evolution? You are the resurrected and the life.
T4:1.14 The only answer might seem to lie in the laws of  evolution, the slow learning and adaptive process of man. Surely this

T4:2.8 said before, this is not about evolution unless you wish to speak of  evolution in terms of awareness. You must realize that if you were to

D:7.21  Evolution is the time-bound way in which the body has participated in

D:7.21 you have been told that you are not called to evolution. Time-bound  evolution is the way of the creature, the natural response of the

D:7.25 These scenarios of fear we leave behind as we abandon ideas of  evolution in time and proceed to an awareness of how the elevated
D:7.25 awareness of how the elevated Self of form can replace the laws of  evolution in time with the laws of transformation outside of time.
D:17.2 The series build to a climax, to what, during the time of  evolution, might have been called evolutionary leaps.
D:Day3.28 the ego-self, a trick that provided the small rewards of time-bound  evolution, the small rewards that would keep you assured of progress
D:Day4.7 can thus be linked as examples of a kind of learning that, despite  evolution, has not left any of you. You all begin life without the

C:27.11 as you can look about and see that no two bodies on this earth are  exactly the same, the Self you are is a unique Self. A Self of

C:22.17 You have made of yourself a laboratory where you bring everything for  examination, categorization, testing, and filing away. This is the

C:4.2 love will provide for you through its acquisition. This is a classic  example of not recognizing that love is.
C:9.22 That your sights are set on the care of the body alone is another  example of choosing an opposite for replacement.
C:9.23 in struggling against what you have for what you have not. Only one  example is needed to clarify the predicament in which you have placed
C:9.27 Let us return to the  example of feeding your sister’s hunger and quenching your brother’s

T1:3.12 urgency of the need to leave fear behind. Can you not, from this one  example of your fear of miracles, see the glaring reality of all you

T1:8.9 There is no longer a god-head to follow into paradise. Take not the  example of any of these and know instead the example of woman, of
T1:8.9 paradise. Take not the example of any of these and know instead the  example of woman, of Mary, Mother of God.
T1:8.10 to join with man in order for new life to come forth, is but another  example of how your memory of creation was made to serve what you
T1:8.12 Mary is called upon now as the myth to end all myths for in this  example life alone is the key to the riddle provided.

T4:12.11 and sisters, is the learned wisdom of the past. Let me give you an  example that relates to the state of rebellion that was discussed

C:11.1 The  exercises in this Course of Love are few, and they are contained
C:11.4 Each one of these risks I have sought to limit by limiting the  exercises to a simple few that will stay with you when all hurrying,
C:13.1 of unity, you will need no understanding of it. This is all the  exercises that call you to observe your body are for. They are the
C:13.3 These are but  exercises in memory recollection, and the more you practice them the
C:13.3 true memory will return to you. Do not apply any effort to these  exercises, particularly not that of recalling spirit. Just let
C:18.8 of the one projected there. Again, this is but what this Course’s  exercises have attempted to help you see: a world you can observe and
C:23.12 to those which you term induction and deduction. In the past,  exercises have most often begun with an alteration of beliefs
C:23.12 form. Here we have taken an opposite approach, beginning with  exercises to alter your belief in your identity and concluding with
C:23.12 exercises to alter your belief in your identity and concluding with  exercises to alter your belief in form. This is consistent with our
C:23.18 equally given to all. Imagination is linked to true vision, for it  exercises the combined capabilities of mind and heart. It is akin to
C:32.4 and no effort. There is no prolonged study and the few specific  exercises are not required. This Course has succeeded in ways you do
T2:6.7 essential of which is that it is a structure on which to sit. The  exercises of A Course in Miracles began with asking you to call into
T2:6.7 beliefs in known, observable, facts. You may have regarded these  exercises as silly or you may have thought of the lessons of physics
T2:6.7 of the lessons of physics and felt as if you understood these  exercises on an intellectual level. But what these exercises have

T2:1.4 regarding desire, you may still fear your desire. Despite many  exhortations that your purpose here is to be who you are, you may

C:P.4 to have no audience at all if these are the only two states that  exist. Since it is impossible to be part spirit and part ego,
C:P.27 God does, however, have a son, a child, an offspring, who must  exist in some form like unto the Father. Within the story of the
C:P.40 the same being as the caterpillar. The caterpillar did not cease to  exist; it simply transformed into what it always was. Thus it would

C:1.3 Self even though you do not realize that without love you would not  exist.
C:1.4 creating. Because of the extension of God’s thought of love, you  exist. I exist with you in this selfsame thought. You do not
C:1.4 Because of the extension of God’s thought of love, you exist. I  exist with you in this selfsame thought. You do not understand this
C:1.15 existence in a world apart from your Creator. This world does not  exist. And you do not exist apart from your Creator. Your yearning
C:1.15 apart from your Creator. This world does not exist. And you do not  exist apart from your Creator. Your yearning for love is what tells
C:2.19 you are what you have learned, there is no room in which the ego can  exist and, banished from the home you made for it, it slowly dies.
C:3.2 attempting to learn what they are. They are the same as you. All  exist within you. You are the universe itself.
C:3.3 disappear, or cease to be. There is no human condition that does not  exist in all humans. It is completely impossible for one to have what
C:5.17 outside and is illusion, for what is not one with you does not  exist.
C:6.2 Your brother does not  exist apart from you, nor you from your brother. This is reality.
C:6.8 you cannot be separate, all these factors that oppose your reality  exist only in opposition to it. This is what you chose to create when
C:6.13 hurry on to where the challenge of a new success and new reason to  exist awaits. The carrot of fulfillment you hold before yourself when
C:6.14 a choice to renounce illusion, these are the only real choices that  exist, and they do not extend into your illusions but only into
C:6.20 In honesty will you admit an envy, an awareness that they still  exist, but without the pain and burden of the body, without the
C:7.16 you when saved for yourself alone as they would be if they did not  exist. They bring you not to truth or happiness, nor can they buy you
C:8.12 no goal but your only reality, the natural state in which you would  exist but for your decision to reject your reality and your true
C:8.13 and realize the unity that is your home? Were it possible to  exist in unity and still withhold, unity would be a mockery. Who
C:9.4 you. In your memory of creation you have remembered that all things  exist in relationship, and that all things happen in relationship.
C:9.12 hold. The memories of your heart are the strongest and purest that  exist, and their remembrance will help to still your mind and reveal
C:9.15 easy to see that neither the desire to control nor to protect would  exist without the layer of fear that comes before it.
C:10.3 What you truly do not understand is wholeness. All things  exist in wholeness, including the thought system that you made to
C:10.3 of yourself—has no thought system separate from your own and must  exist in the reality where you think you are.
C:10.4 but in the eternal wholeness in which God and you together  exist in truth.
C:10.16 You have not been told that the body does not  exist, only that it is not you. Like all tools you made, it is
C:11.18 You  exist, quite simply, because of your relationship with love. Love is
C:12.15 What this Course is saying is that at some point that does not  exist in time, God’s son made the choice for separation. Whether
C:12.17 many that you could never keep track of them all, and yet they still  exist within you and do not splinter off and become something on
C:12.20 the concept of fear, and realized that without fear they would not  exist, so too is it with the external aspect of life. Without the
C:12.20 original idea of separation, the external aspect of life would not  exist. Just as fear is not real although it seems to be, separation
C:12.21 occurring to you. Just as an idea of yours, once born, continues to  exist, so too, did this idea of separation. But just as your ideas do
C:12.23 He knows it not, and because He knows it not, it does not  exist. Because He knows it not, He has not been hurt by it. He knows
C:13.12 leveled any hurts on you or anyone else. No reason for guilt will  exist within this memory. No shame or fear is here, and no grievances
C:14.5 order to gain life? What creator would create a world not meant to  exist in harmony? Harmony is life. What creator would create a
C:14.16 be meant to be because you are, and you cannot fathom that you would  exist at all if there were not a reason for you to do so.
C:14.17 is a universe but itself and everything in it? Nothing would seem to  exist outside of it, and so it must be unique. Everything that would
C:14.18 for the maintenance of your body, because without it you would not  exist. And when you cease to exist, so does your universe. The lights
C:14.18 body, because without it you would not exist. And when you cease to  exist, so does your universe. The lights will be turned out upon it
C:15.1 world you see but reflects this desire. Love’s opposite would not  exist but for your invitation of it. All hate, guilt, shame, and envy
C:18.4 changed the nature of the universe and made it possible for life to  exist separately and alone with no relationship, no connection, no
C:18.8 that cannot take you away from the internal world where you  exist in wholeness, a link in the chain of creation. Imagine again
C:18.10 is to alter what you experience. The state in which you now  exist was not only unbelievable but also inconceivable to you in your
C:18.16 where then is the mind? The center is but the Source in which all  exist as one mind. To say this to you before we loosened some of your
C:19.1 the whole range of experiences available to a separate being would  exist.
C:20.2 world, the universe, the all of all in whose embrace you literally  exist. Feel the gentleness and the love. Drink in the safety and the
C:20.12 We  exist in the embrace of love like the layers of light that form a
C:20.17 The world does not  exist apart from you, and so you must realize your compassionate
C:20.17 you, sharing the one heartbeat. The heartbeat of the world does not  exist apart from God. The heartbeat of the world is thus alive and
C:20.20 possible to have a concept of wholeness, of all, and for it not to  exist? And how could it exist apart from you? Oneness with Christ,
C:20.20 of wholeness, of all, and for it not to exist? And how could it  exist apart from you? Oneness with Christ, dear brother and sister,
C:20.21 air, the ocean and her surf, all live by the universal heartbeat and  exist within the embrace. Is not all you can imagine holy when you
C:20.22 exists within the embrace. How could you be less than sacred? You  exist in holiness.
C:22.7 examples, the partnership creates something that did not previously  exist by providing a function and a purpose for each. In the case of
C:23.2 it is your nature to seek for more, it is also the nature of life to  exist in relationship and to become known through relationship. This
C:27.10 and who God is? Is it such a huge leap to go from saying you only  exist in relationship to you only exist as relationship? You think it
C:27.10 leap to go from saying you only exist in relationship to you only  exist as relationship? You think it is, and feel yourself further
C:31.35 You do not  exist outside of relationship, just as your mind does not exist
C:31.35 You do not exist outside of relationship, just as your mind does not  exist outside of oneness. Your experience here is but an extension of
T1:2.8 often throughout A Course of Love, an alternative exists. It did not  exist when you knew not of it and so your attempts at learning have
T1:2.10 thoughts of your ego-mind were ruled by the nature of the body. To  exist as creatures whose only thoughts are of survival of the body is
T1:2.10 as creatures whose only thoughts are of survival of the body is to  exist in a lower order. The laws of the body have thus subjected you
T1:4.6 gifts as being given to all. This is thus a call to realize that you  exist in relationship, that your relationship calls for a response,
T1:5.9 that make the in-between state of the illusion in which you now  exist seem real. I must make a distinction here, between the
T1:5.9 Your heart as we have defined it many times within this Course, must  exist in the thought system that is real to you. The thought system
T1:6.2 in another way, prayer reproduces the truth and allows the truth to  exist as it is. Prayer does this because it is the act of consciously
T1:7.2 chosen a form, and more accurately put a “lesser” form in which to  exist, and that that choice includes the choice to suffer. This
T1:7.2 and on the other hand there is light. One or the other must  exist at a given time, but never both. Thus the absence of good
T1:7.2 does not accept that there is only one reality and that it must  exist where you are.
T1:8.10 serve what you would have come to be. The separated self could not  exist in separation and so created a way in which other separated
T1:9.2 about this union and the separation of male and female continues to  exist only in form.
T1:9.9 resurrect into a new form, you would also; that this new form would  exist within you; that you would become the Body of Christ and giving
T2:2.9 willingness is necessary. Only in your own willingness does anything  exist because only in your willingness is the power of creation
T2:3.7 of love that brought life into existence. The seeds of creation  exist in everything and provide for continuing creation. Thus the
T2:3.7 for continuing creation. Thus the seeds of all that you can express  exist “within” you, in the creation that is you. The power of
T2:4.9 While two sets of thoughts and feelings  exist, the only way to come to peace with them is through an
T2:6.8 fully accomplished within its seed and yet grows and changes, you  exist fully accomplished within the seed that is the Christ in you
T2:6.8 form and action of all kinds are but expressions of what already  exist within the seed of the already accomplished.
T2:6.9 your recognition of the state of unity. It is a recognition that you  exist in unity outside of the pattern of time. Miracles create an
T2:6.10 As I have already said that your heart must  exist where you think you are, you can begin to see that this change
T2:6.10 heart join in unity in the present, in the here and now, so that you  exist—even within form—as the only Son of God, the Christ, the
T2:7.5 from you. The relationship is the source of your unity. That you  exist in relationship with all is a belief that you must now
T2:11.5 by untruth. The truth simply exists as love exists and as you  exist. When we say something is, this is what it is of which we
T2:11.12 Separate things must still  exist in relationship. This is the key to understanding the truth of
T2:11.12 ego has put forth would have been a true image. But as life cannot  exist apart from relationship, this choice was not available and did
T2:11.13 as a state that exists rather than as a state that does not  exist. If you exist as a separate being but your being is contingent
T2:11.13 state that exists rather than as a state that does not exist. If you  exist as a separate being but your being is contingent upon
T2:11.13 Is this not similar to saying that a living human body does not  exist without its heart? Is not what is essential to a living body a
T2:11.13 While this illustration is not attempting to say that life does not  exist apart from the body, it is attempting to reveal, in an easily
T2:11.15 the ego is real, you will feel as if there are two identities that  exist within you and you will see yourself as doing battle in
T2:11.15 between Christ and the ego, but you will perceive that such battles  exist. You will be prone to calling upon the Christ as your higher
T2:13.5 Gratitude is the recognition of the state of grace in which you  exist here and remain forever beyond all time and the passing of all
T2:13.5 but is given and received in equal exchange by all who in creation  exist together in oneness eternal.
T3:1.1 This is the only way in which the personal self will continue to  exist following the completion and the integration of this Course.
T3:1.6 became an ego-self or an unreal self. An unreal self cannot help but  exist in an unreal reality. It is as if you have been an actor upon a
T3:1.8 this is the only way in which the personal self will now continue to  exist. This statement implies and acknowledges your previous belief
T3:1.10 To say that the personal self will now  exist only as the self you present to others is to say that the
T3:2.1 What purpose would it seem to serve to have anything  exist only as a representation? We might think of this in terms of
T3:3.7 new thought system must be wholehearted. They cannot be beliefs that  exist only in your mind, a new philosophy to be applied to life. They
T3:3.7 only in your mind, a new philosophy to be applied to life. They must  exist in your heart. And how can they exist in the heart of an
T3:3.7 be applied to life. They must exist in your heart. And how can they  exist in the heart of an unlovable self?
T3:5.1 While you have just been told that you now  exist in a state of emptiness, this is not a state to be feared. Yet
T3:6.4 is as old as time itself and the cause of bitterness being able to  exist, even within your hearts.
T3:6.5 While the untrue cannot  exist with the true, what I am calling here bitterness is all that
T3:6.6 the bitter herbs of scripture illustrated. Many rights and rituals  exist for the purification of the unclean but I assure you that you
T3:9.1 It is an idea that says all that love would not create does not  exist. It is an idea that says that if you live from love and within
T3:9.3 Ideas of love, or the truth, are joined in unity and  exist in relationship. All of the ideas within the house of illusion
T3:10.16 of illusion still exists, you will continue to encounter those who  exist within it. While you continue to encounter those who exist in
T3:10.16 those who exist within it. While you continue to encounter those who  exist in the house of illusion you will continue to encounter
T3:11.1 is an illusionary self. This could be further stated as those who  exist in the house of illusion are aware of the personal self alone
T3:11.10 those living in illusion or their reality. Their reality does not  exist. Believing in the reality of illusion will never make it the
T3:11.12 think of yourself as different than your brothers and sisters. All  exist in the House of Truth. The house of illusion exists within the
T3:11.15 of course, continue to be aware that very few realize that they  exist in the House of Truth. You will, in truth, for quite some time,
T3:12.2 You  exist within the time of consciousness of the personal self. Thus we
T3:12.2 time, they are eternal, eternal levels of consciousness that still  exist and have always existed.
T3:12.3 Temptations of the human experience  exist only in time. What we are about to do is move the human
T3:12.5 already been stated, in order to remove the limits that continue to  exist, we must remove all time-bound temptations.
T3:12.7 even dared to dream of is a state in which only God’s laws of love  exist even within the realm of physicality. What this means is that
T3:13.1 and our new purpose, that of the miracle that will allow you to  exist as who you are in human form, we may proceed unencumbered by
T3:14.1 from the new thought system. The new thought system will still  exist within your mind and heart, as nothing can now take this memory
T3:16.15 behind you is the idea of the holy relationship in which all  exist in unity and within the protection of love’s embrace. If you
T3:17.1 but there was a need for the Self to have an observable form and to  exist in relationship with others with observable forms. This was
T3:17.3 As soon as spirit took on form, man began to  exist in time because there became a need for a beginning and an
T3:17.5 of untruth in the mechanism of time, to the world in which you now  exist. It may seem ridiculous to say that the untrue can be learned,
T3:18.3 to serve our new purpose of the miracle that will allow you to  exist as who you are in human form. See what perfect sense this makes
T3:19.12 beliefs and ideas led to the old reality, a reality that will still  exist for some even after it changes completely for you.
T3:20.1 Illusion has at its base a false cause and so no effects that  exist in truth. Now, your every thought and action will have effect,
T3:21.5 Your real Self exists in truth. It does not  exist in illusion.
T3:21.7 The only means for the personal self and the true Self to  exist together is for the truth to be lived in time. In order for the
T3:21.11 to certainty as you have been capable, simply because you could not  exist without an identity. You might think of this as being certain
T3:21.15 interconnection of these ideas you hold about yourself or not, they  exist. Your world-view, and your view of your personal self, are
T3:21.17 Even while your belief system has changed and you believe that you  exist in unity, all the things we have enumerated above will act to
T3:21.18 of this Treatise is complete, the personal self will continue to  exist only as the self you present to others. It will be a
T3:21.19 our new purpose, the purpose of the miracle that will allow you to  exist as who you are in human form. How, you might rightly ask, can
T3:22.13 what is into existence. You believe that what does not appear to  exist with you in the here and now is not, and place it in a separate
T4:1.28 This is the truth of the state of the world in which you  exist today.
T4:2.7 not become aware of their true nature does not mean that it did not  exist; that there are others living among you in this time who will
T4:2.7 not become aware of their true nature does not mean that it does not  exist within them. You are no more accomplished than anyone has been
T4:2.28 of consciousness we are calling Christ-consciousness, allowed me to  exist in union and relationship with all, I could see my brothers and
T4:2.30 relation to the whole. You are beginning to see the connections that  exist and this is the beginning.
T4:2.32 first and foremost of revelation. It is believing that you  exist in relationship and union with all, and that each encounter is
T4:2.32 and purpose—purpose that will be revealed to you because you  exist in union with the Source and Cause of revelation.
T4:3.6 of being. Both states of being—the natural and the unnatural—  exist in relationship. While relationship is what has kept you
T4:3.12 be. There is a reason why the original nature of your being cannot  exist in a form unnatural to love. A form whose nature is fear cannot
T4:4.16 of the personal self with the true Self in the reality in which you  exist now. Remember, the heart must abide in the reality where you
T4:4.16 mind’s acceptance of your new reality has the heart been freed to  exist in the new reality that is the state of unity and relationship.
T4:5.2 are God’s harmony, God’s expression, God’s melody. You, and all that  exist with you, form the orchestra and chorus of creation. You might
T4:5.4 for your body to live, this one Energy had to enter your form and  exist where you think you are. This is the Energy of Love, the Energy
T4:5.5 you and It surrounds and It encompasses you. It is you and all who  exist with you. It is the body of Christ. It is like unto what the
T4:6.7 one truth of God’s law of love, can find many expressions. You can  exist in Christ-consciousness, as have many others of the past, and
T4:6.8 You have the unequalled opportunity now, because you  exist in the Time of Christ, to directly share Christ-consciousness
T4:7.5 to you through a heart and mind joined in unity, your body too will  exist or abide within this natural state. It cannot help to, as it,
T4:7.6 body have joined in alignment to bring this learning about. They now  exist in harmony. Your mind and heart in union have brought harmony
T4:11.3 need only for the sustainability of Christ-consciousness in which we  exist together as creators in unity and relationship.
T4:12.12 of learning for you to move on to. There is no reason for you not to  exist in continual contentment. Continual contentment will not stunt
T4:12.24 You now  exist within a shared consciousness. The pattern of a shared
T4:12.33 before us. Because you are a being still existing in form, you still  exist in the realm of time and space. Yet time and space no longer
D:1.15 These Dialogues are for everyone because we  exist in unity with everyone. No one will be forced to join our
D:1.27 what can only be received in the love and unity in which we truly  exist together, as one body, one Christ, one Self.
D:2.22 Within is where the real world and all your brothers and sisters  exist in the unity of Christ-consciousness. Change within effects
D:4.12 that make up your world, everything from the planet on which you  exist to the stars in the sky, from the body you seem to inhabit to
D:4.13 patterns, the internal and the external, were created together to  exist in a complementary fashion. Both of these divine patterns are
D:5.11 of the truth, returns you to the reality of the truth where you  exist in oneness.
D:5.12 and the loving patterns given in the time of learning are all that  exist in all you see. But what now will become of these patterns that
D:5.20 of your environment, your mind, and time as a prison, how can it  exist in perfect harmony with the universe? As you can see, you are
D:6.6 nothing. There is not one thing that you have made that does not  exist as some variation of what was originally created. Because, and
D:6.11 your ideas about the body and the systems of the world in which you  exist. If you are no longer living in an “if this, then that” world,
D:6.12 of relationships, relationships without end, relationships that  exist in harmony and cooperation. This is a harmony and cooperation
D:6.26 Now that your Self has joined the elevated Self of form, you  exist together both in time and outside of time. Remember, the
D:7.7 a particular time in history. Now you are called to discover how to  exist in form without being defined by this time-bound particularity.
D:7.8 it as “bound” by the particularity of time and space. It may still  exist in a particular time and place, but this is simply the nature
D:7.18 of creation, because they are related to particular forms as they  exist in time. Time is not an aspect of eternity or of unity. Time is
D:7.27 and space. It is not a circle that can be drawn around where you  exist so as to define, perhaps, a mile of space and say that this is
D:9.12 learning, ideas are also discoveries that you make, discoveries that  exist apart from learning. Ideas “come to you.” They are given and
D:9.14 the dot of the body; and if you accept that these ideas that already  exist were able to pass through you in order to gain expression in
D:12.1 through which thought can enter your mind. You believe thoughts  exist in your mind and are themselves the product of your brain,
D:14.9 that naturally extend from the state of unity in which all  exist along with you, was advanced by the idea of acceptance you took
D:16.2 to join with the accomplishment and wholeness that already  exist in unity. Creation occurs in each of us, seemingly one at a
D:16.9 movement, being, and expression. You can choose, in other words, to  exist without allowing spirit to move you, without allowing yourself
D:16.9 self-expression. You might think that you can be simply because you  exist and that as long as you exist in form you are being because you
D:16.9 that you can be simply because you exist and that as long as you  exist in form you are being because you are being something. You are
D:16.15 and the time of being the elevated Self of form; that times still  exist in which you are not wholly present as who you are.
D:Day1.14 I not called you to a new time in which the conditions of learning  exist no more? In which the suffering and death that have obscured
D:Day3.41 is the idea of a responsive relationship with unity that does not  exist only within the mind of the wholehearted.
D:Day4.46 the individual is gone, and the self of union all that continues to  exist. It will mean peace, certainty, safety, and joy with no price.
D:Day6.21 to know what to look for, they would find it. It is being created to  exist both within the body and beyond the body. It is, in truth, the
D:Day7.7 into nothingness. Time is replaced by presence, by your ability to  exist in the here and now in acceptance and without fear.
D:Day7.8 those I have yet to speak of, are also in an in-between state. They  exist along with the new you. They exist in acceptance and union.

D:Day6.2 if you have truly taken leave of the everyday world of your “normal”  existence and feel fully present on the holy mountain. This is not a

D:Day11.7 Christ-consciousness is the awareness of  existence through relationship. It is not God. It is not man. It is
D:Day17.1 story. We have spoken of Christ-consciousness as the awareness of  existence through relationship. We have spoken of life-consciousness

D:Day35.5 that you are a self, as long as you have been aware of your own  existence, you have been aware of God. Your awareness of Self is God.
D:Day36.2 This was the way in which you created your experience of a separate  existence.
D:Day36.12 What we have called illusion is this simple nothingness of  existence without relationship to God, and thus existence without

T4:5.5 as a small spark of the energy that has created a living universe  existing within you and uniting you to all that has been created. You

D:3.8 a new way. These are ideas that address your true nature as a being  existing in union, and this is why we call them ideas to carry
D:7.1 Just as when you were a being  existing in the shared consciousness of unity you couldn’t know what

D:8.7 like the home in which you reside, the idea that you have an already  existing awareness of the Source of unity beyond the body will
D:15.10 work of creation? Would this not even be consistent with spirit  existing in every living form from the beginning of time until the
D:16.9 apart from Love, apart from Creation, you cannot. But you can, while  existing in time and form, choose to stand apart from movement,
D:Day4.23 your identity. You needed to first know yourself as a being  existing in union before you could know anything else with the
D:Day4.47 The old challenges, the old reasons for  existing will be gone. All that will be left to do will be the
D:Day10.11 It works for you in that you do not have to resist and reject an  existing trust as you do with the thoughts of the mind you call
D:Day10.21 and Christ-consciousness can be joined. That you, as man or woman,  existing in this particular time and space, can join with
D:Day19.16 Thus it is realistic to see the two ways as intertwined circles  existing in support and harmony with one another. As those given
D:Day21.2 to learn, the source of wisdom, even though you may have seen it as  existing outside of yourself, had to function as what it was—a
D:Day29.5 Your access to union, so newly discovered and yet always  existing within you, has been a part of the process that has allowed
D:Day32.8 Another idea of God within the concept of a Creator God is of God  existing in all of what has been created. God is, within this
D:Day36.11 Without relationship, what is not God is simply being—simply  existing at the opposite end of the continuum of everything that is

C:1.12 perception is healed, to create like your Creator. This yearning  exists naturally within you and cannot be diminished or satiated.
C:1.17 reflect a deeper meaning that, while hidden to you, you still know  exists. The union of two bodies joined in love create a child, the
C:2.1 be taught love but you can be taught to see love where it already  exists. The body’s eyes are not the eyes with which love can be
C:2.2 will not recognize God. Everything real is of God. Nothing unreal  exists. Each person passing from this life to the next learns no
C:2.2 secret. They simply realize love is all there is. Nothing unreal  exists. Think for yourself: If you were going to die tomorrow what
C:5.5 Relationship  exists apart from particulars. This is what you can’t conceive of and
C:5.5 the specific details or forms of your world. You think relationship  exists between one body and another, and while you think this is so,
C:5.6 Relationship is what  exists between one thing and another. It is not one thing or another
C:5.6 separate, a third something. You realize that a relationship  exists between your hand and a pencil when you go to write something
C:5.6 you take so completely for granted that you have forgotten that it  exists. All truth lies in relationship, even one so simple as this.
C:5.6 is a statement that describes the truly real, the only reality that  exists. It is the joining that is real and that causes all creation
C:5.6 that causes all creation to sing a song of gladness. No one thing  exists without another. Cause and effect are one. Thus, one thing
C:5.7 and say, “I love this one” or “I love that,” yet you know that love  exists apart from the object of your affection. Love is set apart in
C:5.12 It is in understanding the relationship that  exists between what you feel and what you do that love’s lessons are
C:5.12 find love. It is in every joining, every entering into, that love  exists. Every joining, every entering into, is preceded by a
C:5.22 wanting to believe all effort is in vain or that a simple solution  exists. A simple solution within your world, a solution that requires
C:6.1 so. You have to forgive yourself for being what you are, a being who  exists only in relationship. You have to forgive all others for being
C:6.2 that is the center of your being is the center of everything that  exists. This is reality. None of these things make you less than what
C:6.8 Spirit. Contrast demonstrates only to reveal the relationship that  exists between truth and illusion. When you chose to deny
C:7.17 or one that is specific and not generalizable. All relationship  exists in wholeness. The small examples used earlier were meant to
C:7.20 from this center that you will come to understand that relationship  exists in wholeness. We have begun to dislodge your idea that you
C:7.22 toss it to the wind and ask for an alternative. An alternative  exists. Not in dreams of fantasy but in truth. Not in changing form
C:8.10 recognition that something other than what appears on the surface  exists.
C:9.13 definition of your entire problem: You do not allow anything that  exists in your world, including yourself, to be what it is.
C:9.21 hungry and you prepare a feast for him fit to serve a king. This one  exists in the violence you would keep outside your doors, and from
C:10.2 never really ceased to be, but as long as you do not realize that it  exists its benefits are unavailable to you. As much as I would like
C:10.6 be ready, just as having lost something does not mean it no longer  exists. Yet your separated self would cite all evidence of its
C:12.12 day and in a lovely place you can see that creation’s paradise still  exists, but nowhere can you find the being God created in His image.
C:13.8 that are your own, memories that are of your own Self. For no spirit  exists that is not part of you, or you of it. If you find yourself
C:14.7 reason try to fit the unfitable without seeing that an alternative  exists.
C:14.18 and if it depends on you that it is you? Only what you are aware of  exists in the universe that is you. Only what happens to you affects
C:14.21 to fear, and those who would not, would still believe that love  exists despite fear’s claim upon it, and think that they are lucky to
C:17.3 And yet you know you cannot claim that you are aware of all that  exists within the universe, or even that you fully know your own
C:18.14 Once an idea is born, it  exists in relationship to its creator. All that remains now is a
C:19.4 self lies the world that was created for your learning, and that so  exists in truth. It is not the only world by any means, but it is
C:19.17 any other number. Yet, on the other hand, when only one of anything  exists it is highly prized. God is thus “God” due, at least in part,
C:19.24 The Holy Spirit  exists in your right mind, and is the bridge to exchanging perception
C:20.12 all beginnings, the kernel and the wholeness of all life. The whole  exists untroubled by what it will be. It is.
C:20.19 Are your tears not shed for what lives and breathes and  exists along with you? And is the you who shed such tears a personal
C:20.22 Sanctity is all that  exists within the embrace. How could you be less than sacred? You
C:20.30 or uniformity. You are a unique expression of the selfsame love that  exists in all creation. Thus your expression of love is as unique as
C:20.48 thought. It is not wisdom but the truth. The truth is that which  exists. The false is illusion. Love is all that matters because love
C:21.2 existing apart from particulars. I repeat that relationship  exists between one thing and another and that it is in the
C:21.8 easy to see in extreme circumstances, but it is a situation that  exists constantly and in every instance until unity is achieved.
C:22.13 illness, or accidents, while in the “beyond meaning” category  exists the relationship that broke your heart, grief, poverty, war,
C:22.23 will allow you to see your “self” as an integral part of all that  exists within your world rather than as the small and insignificant
C:27.8 know God through relationship. Christ is the holy relationship that  exists between all and God, providing the bridge that spans the very
C:27.10 relationship rather than singular objects and bodies, as all that  exists, and thus who you are and who God is? Is it such a huge leap
C:29.16 this manner of functioning, but it did not create it. Life  exists in service to itself. This could also be stated thus: Life
C:29.16 exists in service to itself. This could also be stated thus: Life  exists in relationship. Relationship is the interaction within which
C:29.17 The universe  exists in reciprocal relationship or holy relationship, rather than
C:29.20 wholehearted, for it is in wholeheartedness that the power of choice  exists. A split mind and heart can prevent you from utilizing the
C:29.24 with God achieve the state of unity. Only the state of unity  exists.
C:29.27 No chance to learn or grow is ever missed. Each still  exists, though not in time. Each still exists, but in the present.
C:29.27 is ever missed. Each still exists, though not in time. Each still  exists, but in the present. Can you replace your attention to the
C:31.23 is revealed in truth. This truth lies within everything that  exists, as it lies within you. As you learn that who you are is love,
C:32.2 all the rest that the difference you so prize as your uniqueness  exists. And only there. Only in relationship are you uniquely you.
C:32.2 there. Only in relationship are you uniquely you. Only relationship  exists. For Love is relationship.
T1:2.8 as was stated often throughout A Course of Love, an alternative  exists. It did not exist when you knew not of it and so your attempts
T1:3.3 order. Because of all of this, it cannot experience the truth and so  exists in illusion.
T1:4.9 of God. Your thoughts are released from their concentration on what  exists outside of you as your responsibility is placed where it
T1:4.19 feelings has given them their meaning—think again. Their meaning  exists already and is not up to you to determine. This is not your
T1:7.2 peace in relation to chaos, love in relation to fear. This belief  exists in the in-between, where on the one hand there is darkness,
T1:8.5 it returned me to you in the form of the resurrected Christ who  exists in all of you, bringing resurrection even unto your forms. I
T1:9.6 something does not come from nothing and that nothing is all that  exists without relationship.
T1:10.8 many references that have been made to God not seeing suffering. God  exists with you in peace. When you feel peace, you feel the Peace of
T2:1.3 the first sense is, first and foremost, something that you believe  exists and have defined as being of value. As this Treatise is not
T2:1.13 put a brush to a canvas. But it does mean that the treasure  exists without these “things” and that the treasure is already a
T2:3.1 life is already an act of creation. It was created. All of it. It  exists, fully realized within you. Your work here is to express it.
T2:3.2 desire for expression. Life is the desire to express outwardly what  exists within. What I refer to so often here as being within, as if
T2:3.2 of one heart and one mind. It is the place where everything already  exists fully realized. It is like a trunk full of treasure. Like a
T2:3.3 Your mind  exists in unity. Your heart exists where you think you are, thus
T2:3.3 Your mind exists in unity. Your heart  exists where you think you are, thus providing the means for union
T2:3.7 easier to explain. If the ability to create beautiful music already  exists within you, you do not have to learn what beautiful music is,
T2:5.7 that dependency is a matter of the interdependency of all that  exists in relationship. Thus, all the calls that come to you in the
T2:6.6 you will be someone other than who you are in the present. Unity  exists only in the here and now of the present. There is no will be
T2:6.8 of what is already accomplished that needs adjustment now. As a tree  exists fully accomplished within its seed and yet grows and changes,
T2:6.9 reality outside of the pattern of ordinary time. Although this state  exists as the already accomplished, it is up to you to create it for
T2:7.14 includes accepting that you have needs. That you are a being who  exists in relationship is the same as saying you are a being who
T2:9.14 to arrive. As has already been said, you have arrived and rest  exists only in the state of unity.
T2:10.10 back to your united mind and heart. This is the knowing that already  exists, the memory that is swatted away by the ego.
T2:10.13 by ending the separated state which is the state in which the ego  exists. The end of the separated state or the ego, is the beginning
T2:11.1 were told within the pages of A Course of Love, you are a being who  exists in relationship. This is how you were created and how you
T2:11.1 is to show you how to integrate the belief that you are a being who  exists in relationship into the living of your life.
T2:11.5 protection. The truth is not threatened by untruth. The truth simply  exists as love exists and as you exist. When we say something is,
T2:11.5 truth is not threatened by untruth. The truth simply exists as love  exists and as you exist. When we say something is, this is what it is
T2:11.7 in unity that is inherent in the acceptance that you are a being who  exists in relationship. Separation is all that opposes relationship,
T2:11.12 existence of relationship and it is in relationship that union still  exists. If you had been able to choose separation without
T2:11.13 separation in a new way. Let us speak of separation as a state that  exists rather than as a state that does not exist. If you exist as a
T2:11.13 is this not the same thing as saying that you are a being who  exists in relationship? Is this not similar to saying that a living
T2:11.16 An alternative to this insanity  exists. The alternative is removing all faith from your belief in the
T2:12.8 being, are not called upon to also call forth the treasure that  exists around you? When you call to those whom you meet in
T2:12.10 cultivates her garden. The gardener knows that although the plant  exists fully realized within its seed, it also needs the relationship
T2:12.12 This cultivation then, of the all-encompassing holy relationship that  exists within you and without you, both in all you are and all you
T3:1.1 The personal self  exists as the self you present to others. This is the only way in
T3:1.8 I began this Treatise by saying that the personal self  exists as the self you present to others and that this is the only
T3:2.5 beliefs have shaped your dualistic view of the world and all that  exists with you within it. For every “glory,” gift, or success you
T3:6.3 reward given in another, is the cause of much of the bitterness that  exists within your hearts.
T3:6.5 abode of Christ, this bridge between the human and the divine. It  exists not in some but in all, as the ego has existed not in some but
T3:10.1 to encounter the truth, you must realize that while meaninglessness  exists within your mind, you will be working still to replace it with
T3:10.1 to replace it with meaning rather than allowing the meaning that  exists in everything to be remembered or known. Thus are more
T3:10.15 because they will realize that the memory of this language  exists within them as well. It will come naturally to you to welcome
T3:10.16 among those in human form. While the house of illusion still  exists, you will continue to encounter those who exist within it.
T3:11.1 of the self but are unaware that the self of illusion, the self that  exists in illusion, is an illusionary self. This could be further
T3:11.9 learning is no longer that the Kingdom of God or the House of Truth  exists, but how to live within it. The question of how to live within
T3:11.12 and sisters. All exist in the House of Truth. The house of illusion  exists within the House of Truth because it is where your brothers
T3:11.12 chosen heaven. Choice and the awareness of the power of choice that  exists within is all that differentiates one from the other.
T3:12.9 and strife only because the physical or personal self forgot that it  exists in relationship and believed itself to be separate and alone.
T3:15.11 The Good News is that you have no need to learn the truth. The truth  exists within you and you are now aware of its reality.
T3:18.10 and happiness. You can observe this within yourself because it  exists within your Self. What exists within you is shared by all.
T3:18.10 this within yourself because it exists within your Self. What  exists within you is shared by all. This is the relationship of the
T3:21.5 Your real Self  exists in truth. It does not exist in illusion.
T3:21.6 Your personal self  exists in illusion. It is called a personal self because it is
T3:21.17 of your personal self. As your true identity is that of a Self who  exists in unity and the identity of your personal self is that of a
T3:21.17 unity and the identity of your personal self is that of a self who  exists in separation, this would seem impossible. Even while your
T3:21.23 said that anyone should, or will, remain blind to the unity that  exists beyond all barriers of seeming differences such as those of
T3:22.12 now to what I spoke of earlier as creative tension, the tension that  exists between accepting what is and desiring what will be. Linking
T3:22.12 dualistic world in which you have lived, a world wherein a lag time  exists between what is and what will be. You may have, upon reading
T3:22.13 is not, and place it in a separate category, a category that only  exists in the dualistic world of illusion where here and now is
T4:1.16 are asked not to look back with blame, for no such cause for blame  exists. No cause to look back exists at all, for the truth exists in
T4:1.16 blame, for no such cause for blame exists. No cause to look back  exists at all, for the truth exists in the present. This is the same
T4:1.16 for blame exists. No cause to look back exists at all, for the truth  exists in the present. This is the same as saying the truth exists
T4:1.16 truth exists in the present. This is the same as saying the truth  exists within you. It is in this way that time is not real and will
T4:2.21 it brings. The power to observe what is relates to everything that  exists with you, including the days that make up your life in time
T4:2.23 A Course of Love as your inability to realize the relationship that  exists with the unseen and even the seen. You have moved through life
T4:2.25 point of what I have revealed to you. A new relationship now  exists between the physical and spiritual. It is not an indirect
T4:2.25 It is not an indirect relationship but a direct relationship. It  exists and you are becoming aware of its existence. You will
T4:3.10 Vision will allow you to see the nature of the world and all that  exists within it truly. Observation will allow you to elevate the
T4:3.13 and at the same time to hang on to life; not realizing that what  exists in form does not have to be separate and alone; not realizing
T4:5.3 expressions in form. The same life-force courses through all that  exists in matter in the form of this energy. Awareness of this one
T4:5.4 that is known as God. Since you are clearly alive, this Energy  exists within you as it exists in all else that lives. It is one
T4:5.4 Since you are clearly alive, this Energy exists within you as it  exists in all else that lives. It is one Energy endlessly able to
T4:5.5 been created. You are the substance of the universe. The same energy  exists in the stars of the heavens and the waters of the ocean that
T4:5.5 exists in the stars of the heavens and the waters of the ocean that  exists in you. This energy is the form and content of the embrace. It
T4:5.5 like unto what the water of the ocean is to the living matter that  exists within it. The living matter that exists within the ocean has
T4:5.5 to the living matter that exists within it. The living matter that  exists within the ocean has no need to search for God. It lives in
T4:7.5 this natural state. It cannot help to, as it, just like your heart,  exists in the state or reality in which you think you are. The only
T4:12.8 of the non-intermediary nature of this dialogue is that it  exists in unity. It is given and received in unity. Intermediary
D:1.23 This is akin to thinking of a god who  exists outside or apart from yourself. If you fully accepted your
D:3.12 source, thus giving and receiving is an idea, as are all ideas, that  exists apart from form. Giving and receiving are thus one within the
D:3.17 “other” than your Self rather than seeking the awareness that  exists within.
D:3.19 It is this difference that  exists between the Self and the elevated Self of form that makes of
D:3.19 within this Course as unique expressions of the selfsame love that  exists in all.
D:3.21 aware of the truth of giving and receiving being one. This awareness  exists within you and you cannot any longer claim to be unaware of it
D:4.11 believe in a divine design without accepting that a divine design  exists and that you are part of it. Remember that our goal here is to
D:4.11 asked to accept is that existence is purposeful, that the universe  exists in divine order, and that your life is part of that divine
D:4.12 from the body you seem to inhabit to the animal and plant life that  exists around you. From the daintiest and most intricately laced
D:4.14 upon which how you live arises. The truth is a system of thought. It  exists in wholeness and has always been available.
D:5.21 that seems inconsistent with your being, while still in a form that  exists within a form, within a world that seems inconsistent with
D:6.6 body, as all else you see among the living, is, in fact, living. It  exists as living form. And so we begin with a distinction between
D:6.6 as living form. And so we begin with a distinction between what  exists as living form, and what exists as inanimate or non-living
D:6.6 with a distinction between what exists as living form, and what  exists as inanimate or non-living form. While you might think this is
D:6.6 is not perhaps as you have previously seen it, for everything that  exists in form is of the same Source. Even those things you have made
D:6.6 of the truly real, or the energy of creation, in everything that  exists in form.
D:6.27 The elevated Self of form, however, being a form that still  exists in time, must realize the consciousness of the true Self in
D:7.5 of unity and places you outside of time. In this state, no duality  exists. Doing and being are one.
D:7.8 nature of one aspect of what you are. The nature of form is that it  exists as matter, it occupies space and is perceptible to the senses.
D:7.18 eternity or of unity. Time is thus what has separated the self that  exists in form from the Self that exists in union or the state of
D:7.18 what has separated the self that exists in form from the Self that  exists in union or the state of Christ-consciousness. By becoming one
D:7.26 now as you begin to imagine the “more” that you are, the “more” that  exists beyond the body’s boundary and beyond the boundary of time and
D:7.27 a mile of space and say that this is all you. No, the circle that  exists around you is the circle of shared consciousness, the circle
D:7.29 who live and work nearby. This territory of conscious awareness  exists within the larger consciousness of unity, just as the
D:7.29 larger consciousness of unity, just as the territory of your body  exists within the larger territory of the planet Earth. We will begin
D:8.5 this as an idea is to imagine this “given” Self as the Self that  exists beyond the boundary we have described as the dot of the body.
D:9.12 as a cause for talent, but what is heredity but that which already  exists within you? So too is it with an idea. An idea already exists
D:9.12 exists within you? So too is it with an idea. An idea already  exists within you, but is awaiting its birth through you.
D:9.13 now come to see your form; it is that through which what already  exists, what is already accomplished, comes or passes through by
D:10.4 of unity, your expression of these givens, since that expression  exists in the realm of time and space and involves the work and time
D:10.4 realize that the bringing forth of the accomplishment that already  exists in unity is your new work, the work of the Self of union, the
D:12.13 and unusual as it may sound, that this access and entryway already  exists within you, and that you have already benefited from moments
D:13.6 you can come to understand it. What comes of union is a knowing that  exists in relationship. Once you have attained a state of being able
D:16.15 To realize the state of becoming is to realize that an in-between  exists between the time of learning and the time of being the
D:Day3.39 felt the reality of union, you have felt the place in which no want  exists. You felt this through the responsiveness of the relationship
D:Day4.13 You have been told that in unity a “place”  exists that is your natural state, a state free from want, a state
D:Day4.13 from learning, a state free from death. To be told that such a place  exists is no more comforting than consoling words if you do not feel
D:Day4.26 is both access and the place to which you desire access. As all that  exists in truth, union is means and end.
D:Day4.27 To know the basic truth of who you are—that you are a being who  exists in unity rather than in separation—is thus the first step to
D:Day4.27 And learning is not the way to the access that you seek. As all that  exists in truth, the truth of who you are is means and end as well.
D:Day4.30 of its training. Thus, a major key to your discovery of all that  exists within you in the state of unity, is an end to thinking as you
D:Day4.32 Access simply  exists within your natural state, much like breathing is simply a
D:Day4.35 this portal to all that lies beyond time and space, to all that  exists in the place of unity.
D:Day4.40 back at form and matter? Or do you turn and look up where no form  exists? Do you believe you can choose the formless and still return
D:Day5.8 Thus, access too is the same. It  exists. It is there for you. It is given. It cannot be denied unless
D:Day6.1 To realize the state of becoming is to realize that an in-between  exists between the time of learning and the time of being the
D:Day6.9 In all stages of its creation, the piece of music  exists in relationship to its creator. Be it only an idea, a
D:Day6.9 work that will qualify more as practice than as art, the piece  exists. In each stage of creation it is what it is. Only when it is a
D:Day6.19 and manifestation without the accomplishment that already  exists.
D:Day10.2 confidence of the self of form? Certainty is knowing that this power  exists. Confidence is the expression of your reliance upon it. To
D:Day10.2 upon it. To rely on your own power is to rely on the connection that  exists between the self of form and the Self of union and to, through
D:Day10.35 aware of them. So is every other living thing because all that lives  exists in relationship. What I have often referred to as the urgency
D:Day10.35 aspects of urgency are converging. When your reliance on all that  exists apart from your Self—your reliance on science and technology
D:Day11.4 The One Self  exists within the many in order to know Its Self through sharing in
D:Day11.6 be the All of Everything would be to not know existence. Only what  exists in relationship knows that it exists. Thus relationship is
D:Day11.6 not know existence. Only what exists in relationship knows that it  exists. Thus relationship is everything. Relationship is the truth.
D:Day13.6 void of the loveless self. As long as the void of the loveless self  exists within the spacious Self, they exist in harmony. It is only in
D:Day13.7 the suffering self. A suffering self, held within the spacious Self,  exists in harmony with the spacious Self. Attempts to eject the self
D:Day13.8 relationship is not only possible but inevitable. True relationship  exists naturally in the state of harmony that is the spacious Self.
D:Day15.2 and everyone. Thus your willingness to be made known and to know  exists alongside your willingness to embrace the unknown.
D:Day15.23 has always existed within you in the realm of the unknown that also  exists within you.
D:Day16.2 Because all that is not physical  exists only in consciousness, it simply exists. It is simply “there”
D:Day16.2 all that is not physical exists only in consciousness, it simply  exists. It is simply “there” within consciousness. All that you
D:Day16.9 time, wholeness, where all that is real and all that was ever real  exists. While the physical manifestations of all that you feared and
D:Day16.10 moment you remain within Christ-consciousness where all that is  exists in harmony. To embrace is the opposite of to escape. To hold
D:Day16.13 about. What you hold within the embrace is held in love and so  exists along with you in the spacious state of constant coming to
D:Day21.1 of any of the ideas that you may still have that an outside source  exists. There is no such thing as an outside source. There are no
D:Day21.6 that you receive in union as a channel of the divine life force that  exists in everything and everyone. There is nothing channeled to one
D:Day22.7 You realize that you have known a place where nothing but love  exists, where there is no suffering, no death, no pain nor sorrow, no
D:Day22.8 now within you awaiting your expression. Awareness of union with God  exists in everything. It is there in every tree and every flower, in

T1:2.17 all those who have and will experience the sunset by being a shared  experience. It is there not for you alone, but in listening to its
T1:2.18 Finally, the sunset becomes, through your  experience of it, an opportunity to apply the art of thought.
T1:2.19 Thus, these are the basic rules of the art of thought: First, to  experience what is and to acknowledge what is, both as a fact of your
T1:2.19 the Creator. Second, to acknowledge the relationship inherent in the  experience, the call for a response, and the nature of all gifts as
T1:2.21 To  experience what is and to acknowledge what is, one must be present,
T1:2.21 acknowledge what is, one must be present, present as human being. To  experience what is and to acknowledge what is as being a gift of God
T1:2.21 a gift of God is to be present as a divine being having a human  experience. No part of being is negated. All senses and feelings of
T1:3.1 the art of thought to be applied relate to memory in terms of your  experience here. In other words they will relate to the
T1:3.2 Seeing how different from the  experience of illusion is the experience of truth is the same as
T1:3.2 Seeing how different from the experience of illusion is the  experience of truth is the same as seeing how different the art of
T1:3.3 it cannot see the higher order. Because of all of this, it cannot  experience the truth and so exists in illusion.
T1:3.4 The  experience of truth dispels illusion and thus the ego-mind. The art
T1:4.19 Interpretation but gives you opinions about those things that you  experience. Response reveals the truth to you because it reveals the
T1:4.21 to re-experience the lessons your life has brought you. You will  experience the same lessons in the same way, rather than in a new
T1:4.27 a God of love, this revelation has not been reconciled with your  experience here. This is what we will now seek to do by putting an
T1:5.2 the art of thought. One aspect of this fear has to do with the human  experience, the other aspect with the divine experience.
T1:5.2 to do with the human experience, the other aspect with the divine  experience.
T1:5.3 has gone wrong within it, this fear in relation to the human  experience is of what it was I spoke. The choice for suffering that
T1:5.8 In order to  experience the truth, you must move into a state that is real.
T1:5.9 system has kept you from this freedom is the seeming difficulty you  experience in learning this course of study and the reason, when you
T1:5.10 The body, and thus the “you” whom you think you are, would not  experience anything without the presence of the heart. The heart is
T1:5.10 the presence of the heart. The heart is the only cause of your  experience here. When released from the ego thought system, the heart
T1:5.10 the ego thought system, the heart becomes the determiner of what you  experience since you know it as the cause. This is what is meant by
T1:5.11 The “here” that you  experience is the experience dictated by the ego-mind, and this
T1:5.11 The “here” that you experience is the  experience dictated by the ego-mind, and this experience is all that
T1:5.11 you experience is the experience dictated by the ego-mind, and this  experience is all that makes you believe you are other than who you
T1:5.12 manner in which you would be once and finally convinced. You must  experience the reality of the new thought system or it will remain
T1:5.12 of fear on which the old thought system was built in order to  experience the new.
T1:5.13 The art of thought invites the  experience of the new thought system by being willing to replace the
T1:6.6 memory and transforming that divine memory into a present moment  experience.
T1:6.7 perception. If perception were all that were available to you, each  experience would begin and end and have no ability to relate to
T1:6.7 experiences without relating to them in the same way. It is the way  experience is related to, through memory, which shapes the different
T1:9.13 a few brief examples. These I ask you to cull from your own recent  experience. What has caused the ego to become more apparent to you as
T1:10.2 of extremes in your feelings and want to bring them back. You will  experience this loss of extremes as a lack. You will think something
T1:10.2 is wrong. You will feel this particularly when others around you  experience extremes. A friend is experiencing feelings on an extreme
T1:10.2 same reason, the reason of wanting to be fully engaged in the human  experience.
T1:10.3 Here is this  experience you have created and how often have you been fully engaged
T1:10.3 human of ways. You will cry and laugh for the poignancy of the human  experience. This is the known that you will be tempted not to give
T1:10.4 This is temptation. The temptation of the human  experience. This is what you continue to choose over the Peace of
T1:10.5 You used your free will to choose the human  experience. Now are you willing to use it to choose the Peace of God
T1:10.6 These extremes of the human  experience have been learning devices. They have cracked open hearts
T1:10.6 while you may continue to read for a lifetime. You can continue to  experience life and still carry the Peace of God within you. As you
T1:10.8 the Peace of God is all the joy of what you have known as the human  experience and none of the sorrow.
T1:10.9 Each of you will have an  experience you look back on, an experience of profound joy or grief
T1:10.9 Each of you will have an experience you look back on, an  experience of profound joy or grief that also became an experience of
T1:10.9 back on, an experience of profound joy or grief that also became an  experience of profound learning. You will think that you would not be
T2:1.1 it will begin to be regarded as an ability. And finally, through  experience, it will become your identity. We will begin by discussing
T2:3.4 between the ego-self that previously was the self of learning and  experience, and the Christ-Self that is now the Self of learning and
T2:3.4 experience, and the Christ-Self that is now the Self of learning and  experience. You must take on the mantle of your new identity, your
T2:7.21 this belief builds on the belief of the already accomplished through  experience. As you experience giving and receiving being one in
T2:7.21 on the belief of the already accomplished through experience. As you  experience giving and receiving being one in truth, your belief will
T2:9.18 accept need and dependency is necessary only as a learning ground of  experience on which trust can grow. Once this trust is realized you
T2:10.7 told that you can no longer believe that what you know is related to  experience, you are not being told that you have exactly the same
T2:10.7 same knowledge as does every person of every variety and level of  experience. Yet no one can know more of the truth than another, and
T2:11.13 way, that there is a condition under which you are here and able to  experience life as a separate being. That condition is relationship
T2:13.2 and I, as your teacher, have all but discounted the personal self I  experience in relationship with you. Now, in unity, we are ready to
T2:13.6 not who you truly are, but forget not also to be in joy in your  experience here. Remember that the seriousness with which you once
T3:1.7 you are now to play. There is not one of you who has not begun to  experience the transformation that is, in truth, occurring, although
T3:7.4 you are and remain endlessly who you are, even here within the human  experience. This is the idea that is beyond compare as you are beyond
T3:7.5 The only thing within the human  experience that made you incapable of representing who you are in
T3:7.5 who you are in truth was the ego. The only thing within the human  experience that deprived the human experience of meaning was the ego.
T3:7.5 The only thing within the human experience that deprived the human  experience of meaning was the ego. Thus, with the ego gone, you are
T3:8.4 is an idea intrinsically tied to the personal self and the  experience of the personal self. Whether you believe the personal
T3:10.16 of illusion you will continue to encounter temptations of the human  experience. These are what we will now address.
T3:11.5 The house of illusion is the stage on which the drama of the human  experience has been acted out.
T3:11.11 Thus we begin to address the temptations of the human  experience. Two are spoken of in tandem here: The temptation to judge
T3:11.16 This first lesson on the temptation of the human  experience comes in truth as a warning against righteousness. It
T3:11.16 this and all such reminders regarding the temptations of the human  experience are necessary.
T3:12.3 Temptations of the human  experience exist only in time. What we are about to do is move the
T3:12.3 exist only in time. What we are about to do is move the human  experience out of the realm of time. For this to happen, we must
T3:12.3 to happen, we must remove the time-bound temptations of the human  experience of the personal self.
T3:12.4 of Truth. How then can the personal self begin to realize the human  experience outside of time? The answer is thus: by changing the
T3:12.7 realm of physicality. What this means is that all that in this human  experience has come of love will be retained. All that will be lost
T3:12.8 Let’s return a moment to the choice that was made for the human  experience, the choice to express who you are in the realm of
T3:13.2 We proceed by further defining the temptations of the human  experience. In “A Treatise on the Art of Thought,” we spoke of these
T3:13.2 we spoke of these temptations in regards to extremes of the human  experience, saying that these things that draw you from the peace of
T3:13.2 of who you are, and so cause you to be aware only of a self of human  experience, or a personal self. While you may still feel a connection
T3:13.2 but memories to you while your reality remains that of the physical  experience and the personal self. In such times you can conceive only
T3:13.2 of a God outside of yourself and trust not in the benevolence of the  experience, whether it be an extreme experience of pain or of
T3:13.2 not in the benevolence of the experience, whether it be an extreme  experience of pain or of pleasure. You begin to fear that pleasure
T3:14.1 these patterns of fear remain as deterrents to action, you will not  experience the freedom of living from the new thought system. The new
T3:14.1 mind and heart, as nothing can now take this memory from you, but to  experience the new thought system as thought alone will not bring
T3:14.1 changes you would so desire to have come about within your physical  experience. You may live a more peaceful and meaningful life, but you
T3:14.2 flirting with illusion is like unto the temptations of the human  experience and would not occur were the temptations gone from you.
T3:15.1 Some of you have had more  experience with new beginnings than others. For most mature adults,
T3:15.2 What hampers new beginnings of all kinds within the human  experience are ideas that things cannot be different than they once
T3:16.6 this change has to do with the time-bound temptations of the human  experience. All of these temptations relate to the beliefs set forth
T3:16.8 to be other than who you are in truth is a temptation of the human  experience. It will come in many forms, all of which will be related
T3:16.10 you do not give. The belief in lack is a temptation of the human  experience. This will relate to all situations in which you feel you
T3:16.12 to have no fear. Fear of loss is a great temptation of the human  experience. If it were not for this fear of loss, you would not find
T3:16.14 in regards to special relationships are temptations of the human  experience. These temptations will relate to any issues that you
T3:17.3 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 self of
T3:17.3 always existed as choices, as beginnings and endings to the finite  experience of time. It is the nature of what is finite to begin and
T3:17.4 is a measurement of the “time” it takes for learning to occur. A new  experience was chosen—the experience of existing within the realm
T3:17.4 it takes for learning to occur. A new experience was chosen—the  experience of existing within the realm of physicality. As such, it
T3:17.5 and separate from the self. While it was important to the desired  experience to learn the lessons of what was observable within the
T3:17.5 but this is exactly what has been learned during the time of your  experience in physical form. Since your true Self could not learn the
T3:18.3 Because this was part of the original choice for the physical  experience, it is a natural choice to serve our new purpose of the
T3:18.3 made for a new purpose. It is the perfect ending for the desired  experience, as it was the goal of the desired experience.
T3:18.3 ending for the desired experience, as it was the goal of the desired  experience.
T3:19.4 For ages physical reality has been linked to temptations of the human  experience. Let us now dispel this link. The physical form has been
T3:19.9 thought, one goal. That goal is the original thought that began the  experience in physical form, the thought of expressing the Self in
T3:19.10 body behind and see it not as the source of temptations of the human  experience. The true source of these temptations has been revealed to
T3:21.10 known what is you have never been able to be certain. You have no  experience with certainty other than—and this is a crucial other
T3:21.10 self. Thus your personal self is the only place in which you have  experience that can now be used for a new purpose.
T3:21.11 Even while this  experience is experience of an ego-self, it is still an experience as
T3:21.11 Even while this experience is  experience of an ego-self, it is still an experience as near to
T3:21.11 while this experience is experience of an ego-self, it is still an  experience as near to certainty as you have been capable, simply
T4:1.17 and learning through observation and direction communication or  experience. The same truth has always existed, but the choice of a
T4:1.24 people of the world have been demanding to learn directly, through  experience, and saying “no more” to the lessons of the
T4:1.24 demanding to learn through observation and direct communication or  experience. Many not yet grown to maturity have been born into the
T4:1.25 of consciousness in which they have lived. Others do not wish to  experience the truth directly, but only to experience experience.
T4:1.25 Others do not wish to experience the truth directly, but only to  experience experience. They are in the desperate throes of wanting to
T4:1.25 do not wish to experience the truth directly, but only to experience  experience. They are in the desperate throes of wanting to experience
T4:1.25 experience. They are in the desperate throes of wanting to  experience everything before they allow themselves to directly
T4:1.25 to experience everything before they allow themselves to directly  experience the truth, thinking still that the experience of the truth
T4:1.25 themselves to directly experience the truth, thinking still that the  experience of the truth will exclude much that they would want to try
T4:1.25 into its pull and settle there. But all have become aware that a new  experience awaits and that they stand at the threshold of choice.
T4:1.27 them directly through observation and direct communication or  experience. It means that the last generation born into the time of
T4:2.15 the Self expresses was among the original reasons for this chosen  experience. Observe now the expressions of the self you are and have
T4:2.22 relationship with God, or the possibility that your life is a direct  experience of the pattern of unity or oneness that is creation.
T4:2.29 what shared vision will mean, and do not yet recognize it when you  experience it. This is why you can still think of observance of what
T4:3.4 intent is synonymous with cause. The original intent of this chosen  experience was the expression of the Self of love in observable form.
T4:4.18 in form because this goal but reflected the desire for a temporary  experience. The temporary experience has been elongated because of
T4:4.18 but reflected the desire for a temporary experience. The temporary  experience has been elongated because of the appeal of the physical
T4:4.18 experience has been elongated because of the appeal of the physical  experience. What this Treatise is saying to you is that if the
T4:4.18 What this Treatise is saying to you is that if the physical  experience appeals to you, and if you create the union of the human
T4:7.3 and even art and literature. Those who allow themselves to  experience revelation will enter Christ-consciousness.
T4:7.8 choose to continue to learn through the full variety of the human  experience even after it is unnecessary. Why? Because it is a choice,
T4:8.1 in time chose to express love in physical form, and so began this  experience of human life. You are now beginning to be able to
T4:8.7 that ensued. If your reality had been like unto the reality you  experience in dreams, can you not see that you would have to learn to
T4:10.2 than studying, and yet you will quickly see that you merely think of  experience as learning through a different means than studying.
T4:10.11 was what was necessary in order to allow you to fulfill the desired  experience of expressing the Self of love in form. No longer learning
T4:12.9 enjoyed learning through gatherings of students, gather still, and  experience sharing directly. If a time arrives when you no longer

T4:12.15 impatient or desirous of a return to journeying before you begin to  experience the joy of sharing and the new challenges of creating the
T4:12.16 cause of learned wisdom. It became part of the nature of the human  experience by becoming so consistent within you that it came, through
T4:12.16 within you that it came, through the passing down of the human  experience, to be integral to your nature. Have you not always been

D:4.19 structure that will provide you with parameters in which to begin to  experience your new freedom. It is your questions and concerns that
D:4.19 freedom at all, let us simply speak of a place and a way to begin to  experience it, and of a place and a way to begin to create the new.

D:6.27 The self of form, as form, could never truly  experience the All of Everything that is the natural state of the
D:6.27 the natural state of the formless. But the true Self cannot cease to  experience its natural state, the state of Christ-consciousness,
D:7.1 in the shared consciousness of unity you couldn’t know what the  experience of form would be like without entering into it, you cannot
D:7.1 of form would be like without entering into it, you cannot know the  experience of unity without entering into it. To “enter” into the
D:7.1 experience of unity without entering into it. To “enter” into the  experience of form is something you can picture in your mind, and
D:7.1 because you are aware of the self of form. To “enter” into the  experience of unity is something more difficult to imagine, and
D:7.4 Experiences of form take place in time because  experience, too, was designed for learning. Now experience is needed
D:7.4 in time because experience, too, was designed for learning. Now  experience is needed in time to aid your total acceptance of what you

D:Day3.21 constant “takers,” unafraid to ask for a “hand out” or free lunch,  experience these same emotions, the buildup of anger, resentment, and
D:Day3.52 to money, or abundance, each stage is experienced and felt. This  experience has only one combined value, one combined purpose, the

D:Day4.2 to show you this: That on one side are the temptations of the human  experience, which is just another way of saying all that you have
D:Day4.2 that will incite you to leave behind the temptations of the human  experience.
D:Day4.3 you feel as if you have a choice when the temptations of the human  experience are the only choices that have been known to you? Thus you
D:Day4.34 that you are here to fast from want. You know that you are here to  experience both the old temptations and the new. You realize that

D:Day4.56 the kind of discourse that can only be had without fear. To truly  experience relationship. It is from this beginning that you will come
D:Day4.60 to you and put behind us forever the temptations of the human  experience.
D:Day6.14 be there if only you could be truly “taken away” from it all and  experience nothing but our relationship, focus on nothing but your
D:Day6.20 moment to the temptations associated with the mountain top of my own  experience. They were temptations of the world, of the normal, daily
D:Day6.20 of elevation I knew I had attained. The temptations of the human  experience are the same now as they were then. They are the same on
D:Day6.23 when the teacher steps aside, and the apprentice is able to gain  experience, that the apprentice is in a position to be able to begin
D:Day9.2 Allow yourself, now, to  experience your arrival, your return to your true home, your return
D:Day10.3 the apostles, let your conviction spring from your willingness to  experience its cause and its effect. I am asking you now to be
D:Day10.26 ideal self you left much room for feelings of the type you currently  experience. This is why we have recently spoken of anger and of those
D:Day13.3 You are thus not meant to lose the  experience of the self of form but to integrate it so that you are
D:Day15.23 Practice is the merging of the known and the unknown through  experience, action, expression, and exchange. It alters the known
D:Day18.9 of separation that was able to occur to allow for a certain type of  experience. Now a new degree of union is occurring to allow for a new
D:Day18.9 Now a new degree of union is occurring to allow for a new type of  experience.
D:Day21.9 You began your mountain top  experience with a companion who had offered himself as a teacher in
D:Day27.2 form within you but will not come into its fullness except through  experience. This certainty has only been able to begin to form within
D:Day27.2 to form within you because you have agreed to this mountain top  experience while remaining engaged in life. You have thus begun to
D:Day27.2 experience while remaining engaged in life. You have thus begun to  experience on two levels. This has been a goal of the time we have
D:Day27.3 Experiencing life without the insight of spirit was to  experience external life. Life itself showed you the way, pointed you
D:Day27.3 taught you what you needed to know. This was the external  experience of life. Most of you have had well-examined external
D:Day27.5 have practiced during our mountain top time together the ability to  experience on two levels.
D:Day27.6 Coming to know is a quality of inner-sight, of wholehearted human  experience combined with spiritual experience. You are and always
D:Day27.6 of wholehearted human experience combined with spiritual  experience. You are and always have been both human and spirit, both
D:Day27.6 within you the ability to combine both levels of being through the  experience of life. You have already been doing this. You are, in
D:Day27.9 The two levels of  experience which you have been participating in are the joint
D:Day27.9 as dualistic in nature can be experienced as different levels of  experience of one whole. You might consider this by again picturing
D:Day27.9 of one whole. Different aspects exist only as different levels of  experience.
D:Day27.10 To be able to hold onto, apprehend, and carry with you the ability to  experience both levels of experience, the internal and the external,
D:Day27.10 and carry with you the ability to experience both levels of  experience, the internal and the external, the form and the content,
D:Day27.12 you might think for a moment, just as an illustration, of your  experience of separation always taking place at a certain number of
D:Day27.12 cold. Yet the perfect temperature always existed, you just did not  experience it. You were, in other words, separate from it because of
D:Day27.12 you chose. Because you never chose union, or wholeness, you did not  experience lack of body temperature or the effects of weather, but it
D:Day27.13 is a constant and an aspect of wholeness. The variability of how you  experience who you are is also a constant within the aspect of
D:Day27.13 the aspect of separation. Merge the two, however, into one level of  experience and the whole formula changes.
D:Day27.14 is what we move toward as we practice participating in two levels of  experience simultaneously. We practice experiencing the constant and
D:Day27.14 and the variable together. We practice in order to move toward an  experience of variability within wholeness rather than within
D:Day27.15 Life is oneness extended into separation and variability through  experience. The elevated Self of form will be the expression of new
D:Day27.15 of new life lived within the constant of wholeness but continuing to  experience the variability of separation. This is what you practice
D:Day27.16 Separation, as well as the variability of the  experience of the separate self, have always been variables that
D:Day27.16 What you have experienced, however, has not been wholeness or the  experience of wholeness, but the experience of separation. What we
D:Day27.16 has not been wholeness or the experience of wholeness, but the  experience of separation. What we are speaking of now is being able
D:Day27.16 of separation. What we are speaking of now is being able to  experience wholeness and the variability of experience that has come
D:Day27.16 of now is being able to experience wholeness and the variability of  experience that has come through the separated self of form. This is
D:Day27.16 to do through your practice. Your proficiency will change your  experience, and your experience will change the world.
D:Day27.16 practice. Your proficiency will change your experience, and your  experience will change the world.
D:Day28.1 Moving from an externally directed to an internally directed  experience of life creates unlimited choices. The unlimited choices
D:Day28.1 unlimited choices. The unlimited choices of internally directed  experience are what you must begin to face as we begin our descent
D:Day28.3 through life. Many people, especially young adults, have little  experience other than this. Their lives are directed almost totally
D:Day28.5 avenues to explore at times open up, leading to the next level of  experience: That of external movement toward a chosen type of life.
D:Day28.8 the reality of wholeness that is new. The reality of being able to  experience the variability of separation from within the state of
D:Day28.18 can only take place within time because only within time is the  experience of separation possible, and experience is where the power
D:Day28.18 only within time is the experience of separation possible, and  experience is where the power of transformation lies. This
D:Day28.18 transformation will, however, take you beyond time, because once  experience is moved out of the realm of separation and into the realm
D:Day28.19 change, the transformation, we have been working on by changing your  experience of time to one of experiencing two levels of “time.” Our
D:Day28.20 to occur, however. What will create the shift is the ability to  experience “time outside of time” and “time” simultaneously. Thus is
D:Day28.22 To move to internally directed  experience is to make the move into wholeness that will cause the
D:Day28.22 the move into wholeness that will cause the “shift of the ages,” the  experience of variability within wholeness.
D:Day28.23 This is what our time on the mountain has provided you with: The  experience required in order to realize a new possibility.
D:Day28.25 Separation is desired no longer, but  experience is. Your will and God’s are one and thus it is being made
D:Day29.1 have already realized the ability to participate in two levels of  experience simultaneously and that duality is really just a matter of
D:Day29.1 and that duality is really just a matter of different levels of  experience. If you can be having the experience of the mountain top
D:Day29.1 a matter of different levels of experience. If you can be having the  experience of the mountain top and the experience of level ground
D:Day29.1 If you can be having the experience of the mountain top and the  experience of level ground simultaneously, then you can also have the
D:Day29.1 of level ground simultaneously, then you can also have the  experience of all other “opposites” in this same, simultaneous way.
D:Day29.1 If you can integrate all that opposes wholeness into one level of  experience, you will be able to experience life from within the
D:Day29.1 opposes wholeness into one level of experience, you will be able to  experience life from within the reality of wholeness rather than from

D:Day29.5 to two levels of experience. It is your access to two levels of  experience—the experience of wholeness and the experience of
D:Day29.5 of experience. It is your access to two levels of experience—the  experience of wholeness and the experience of separation. While you
D:Day29.5 to two levels of experience—the experience of wholeness and the  experience of separation. While you may have seen it as access to
D:Day29.6 your spacious self has also been part of the process and part of the  experience of merging wholeness and separation. While you may have
D:Day29.7 and where you are, for who you are and where you find yourself, and  experience yourself, are your reality. This is why experience has
D:Day29.7 yourself, and experience yourself, are your reality. This is why  experience has needed to find a place in which it could become the
D:Day29.7 the common denominator between wholeness and separation. Once you  experience yourself in wholeness and find yourself in union, you have
D:Day29.7 union, you have made of yourself the common denominator upon which  experience can find anchor in wholeness and union.
D:Day30.2 The two levels of  experience we have spoken of might be seen as the process, much like
D:Day30.5 Now let us consider this in terms of  experience. As knower and known are one, experience and experiencer
D:Day30.5 consider this in terms of experience. As knower and known are one,  experience and experiencer are one. In other words, one must
D:Day30.5 one, experience and experiencer are one. In other words, one must  experience in order to know. It follows then that what is experienced
D:Day30.5 is experienced is what is known. It also follows then, that to not  experience joining is to not experience wholeness. Stated another
D:Day30.5 It also follows then, that to not experience joining is to not  experience wholeness. Stated another way, the self cannot know the
D:Day30.5 with the Self. The Self must be the knower and the known, the  experience and the experiencer. The quest to join with God is this
D:Day30.5 God is this quest. The quest to be the knower and the known, the  experience and the experiencer. The culmination of this quest then,
D:Day31.1 relationship. Let us consider this by considering the two levels of  experience—that of the mountain top experience—and that of the
D:Day31.1 considering the two levels of experience—that of the mountain top  experience—and that of the experience on level ground.
D:Day31.1 experience—that of the mountain top experience—and that of the  experience on level ground.
D:Day31.2 While you have been immersed in one level of  experience you have been either knower or known. This is why
D:Day31.2 of experience you have been either knower or known. This is why  experience has seemed to exist apart from you. You say, “I had this
D:Day31.2 apart from you. You say, “I had this experience” or “I had that  experience,” as if you have “had” contact and interaction with
D:Day31.2 of the unity in which relationship exists. You “know” the  experience because you have “had” the experience. The truth that you
D:Day31.2 exists. You “know” the experience because you have “had” the  experience. The truth that you are the experience escapes you.
D:Day31.2 because you have “had” the experience. The truth that you are the  experience escapes you.
D:Day31.3 What the mountain top  experience is helping you to see is that you are the experience. The
D:Day31.3 mountain top experience is helping you to see is that you are the  experience. The mountain top experience did not happen to you or
D:Day31.3 helping you to see is that you are the experience. The mountain top  experience did not happen to you or happen separately from you. It
D:Day31.3 from you. It has happened and is happening within you. You are the  experience and the experiencer, the knower and the known. This
D:Day31.3 the knower and the known. This joining is the point of the  experience and the key to experiencing wholeness.
D:Day31.5 To have experienced only separation is to have known only half of any  experience, to have seen every experience in only one dimension—in
D:Day31.5 is to have known only half of any experience, to have seen every  experience in only one dimension—in short, to have seen experience
D:Day31.5 seen every experience in only one dimension—in short, to have seen  experience as happening to you rather than as you. By realizing the
D:Day31.5 than as you. By realizing the unity of the relationship in which  experience becomes manifest, you not only realize oneness, but
D:Day31.6 All  experience is a product of knower and knowee. It is the One Self
D:Day31.7 Joining is differentiated from union only by  experience. Union is the realm of the One. Joining is where the realm
D:Day31.7 is the One—the common denominator. By knowing the One in the many,  experience can be achieved within wholeness.
D:Day31.8 Self. Notice the link here of knowing and experiencing. To know  experience as the Self is to know the Self as creator, or in other
D:Day31.8 is to join the two. The two are thus joined in the relationship of  experience. Experience is not known separately from the Self. Self
D:Day31.8 the two. The two are thus joined in the relationship of experience.  Experience is not known separately from the Self. Self and God are
D:Day31.8 and experiencing together in wholeness. For the individuated Self to  experience separately from God is to negate the purpose of the
D:Day31.8 to experience separately from God is to negate the purpose of the  experience of the Self which is God. To negate is to deny what is.
D:Day31.8 The acceptance of what is is the Source of union and the ability to  experience in wholeness.
D:Day32.1 The  experience of the Self is God. It is not from God. It is not of God.
D:Day32.2 If all of life is the oneness that is God and God has chosen to  experience that oneness through relationship, then you are also that
D:Day32.2 experience that oneness through relationship, then you are also that  experience and are in relationship with God through that experience.
D:Day32.2 also that experience and are in relationship with God through that  experience.
D:Day32.18 Self, and the means that have been used—such as the two levels of  experience you have achieved during the days and nights of our time
D:Day34.4 wholehearted desire that is upon you now is the desire to know and  experience this oneness of being in relationship rather than the
D:Day34.6 This is your world and your  experience. This is your life and your experience of life. Now you
D:Day34.6 This is your world and your experience. This is your life and your  experience of life. Now you must believe that you are its creator and
D:Day34.7 If you do not make real your power, you will  experience yourself as powerless. If you experience your being as
D:Day34.7 real your power, you will experience yourself as powerless. If you  experience your being as powerless, you are negating the power of God
D:Day34.8 to draw to the close of our time together by asking each other to  experience our power—the power of sameness of being. Are you
D:Day34.8 our power—the power of sameness of being. Are you willing to  experience the power of God? To let it flow through you? Realize how
D:Day35.6 to be of practical benefit to you as you leave the mountain top  experience behind? This question has been asked in this way in order
D:Day35.6 will return to level ground, you will also retain the mountain top  experience. As was said before, the mountain came to you. You will

D:Day36.1 The exercise of your power is in the creation of your  experience.
D:Day36.2 As an ego-self, you created an  experience for yourself that was separate from all others. You made
D:Day36.2 You did so continuously. This was the way in which you created your  experience of a separate existence.

D:Day36.5 those that would move the story of your life along as a “personal”  experience rather than as experience itself. Even experiences

D:Day36.7 what you have been given is everything, your creatorship of your  experience is a totally different exercise. You realize that your

D:Day36.8 a “given” set of circumstances in a “given” world and creating your  experience as a creator who has realized oneness and unity—who has
D:Day36.9 a new set of circumstances and a new world by creating it as your  experience. This is starting over with the realization that you are
D:Day36.9 over with the realization that you are now the creator of your  experience. You have always been creating because you have always
D:Day36.10 power of being because you were a being who existed, but you did not  experience being powerful.
