C:2.6 and think that to act in love more frequently is an achievement. You  label acting from love “good” and acting out of anger “bad.” You feel
C:2.7 living that hell is solidified and becomes quite real. You can  label joy heaven and pain hell and seek the middle ground for your

C:9.14 as all the rest. It is the separated self that feels impelled to  label feelings good and bad, some worthy of acknowledgment and the

C:9.45 apparent. Again you would place the blame outside yourself and  label drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, and even food as destructive
C:17.5 loyal to the world you see. This is why even Heaven, which you would  label good, is not wholly good in your estimation of it. Why is it
C:21.7 that there are two ways of viewing a situation, even if you do not  label one way of viewing or perceiving being of the mind and the

C:8.18 aware than ever of its actions and complaints, its sturdiness or  lack thereof. You may be realizing how it governs your existence and
C:9.17 be as separate as he is. It always seems as if others have what you  lack and what you are looking for. You seem to be alone in your
C:9.17 looking for. You seem to be alone in your frailty, loneliness, and  lack of love. Others misunderstand you and know you not, and neither
C:9.37 you would have it do. Its purpose, simply stated, is to supply a  lack. This is your definition of completion. What is missing in you

C:18.21 so only to differentiate your feelings of love from your feelings of  lack of love or fear. What we have as yet talked even less of,
C:18.23 that all you experience as painful is the result of feelings of  lack of love, and that all you have experienced as pleasurable are
C:20.28 Because you are changeless and boundless, you are all-powerful. Only  lack of expression leads to powerlessness. No true expression is
C:21.5 much misunderstanding. Occasionally the problems associated with a  lack of a common language have been set aside when the actions needed

C:25.5 is in the perceiver rather than the perceived. Each time you feel a  lack of love, it comes from within yourself. This lack of love, or
C:25.5 time you feel a lack of love, it comes from within yourself. This  lack of love, or “faked” love of which you cannot help but be aware,
C:25.5 you want something, you are also becoming aware that you feel you  lack something. All feelings of lack are synonymous with feelings of
C:25.5 becoming aware that you feel you lack something. All feelings of  lack are synonymous with feelings of fear. Where there is fear, love

C:25.12 believe that you have no need for struggle, to believe you have no  lack, to believe in your state of grace. While you believe even one
C:25.13 believe acted toward you without love. While you believe feelings of  lack of love come from anywhere but within, you will not be
C:29.2 to a higher Will or higher Cause. Some of you associate it with a  lack of free will, a lack of choice, a course that will lead you to a
C:29.2 higher Cause. Some of you associate it with a lack of free will, a  lack of choice, a course that will lead you to a subservient stature.

T1:3.17 to miracles, only to having them performed through you. Your  lack of willingness to perform miracles, you will say, stems from
T1:3.24 not the choices made in each of these scenarios and the reasoning or  lack of reasoning behind them? You are not worthy. You are not
T1:6.6 prerequisite. To pray out of fear is to ask from an unreal state of  lack for what is seen as missing or desired. In contrast, true
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
T1:9.16 undervalued rather than looking for an other to provide what you  lack. This is important and universal in its impact. It would seem to
T1:10.2 it. And this will be tempting on occasion. You will wonder at the  lack of extremes in your feelings and want to bring them back. You

T2:7.5 is the cause for fear? What is the hidden source of your feelings of  lack or deprivation? What is the hidden source of your desire to
T2:9.10 to attain something is the extent to which your belief in want or  lack is revealed. This is the purview of special relationships. Thus

T3:14.7 illness, the life of scarcity caused by perceived lack, the  lack of stature caused by perceived disrespect. It is only by your
T3:16.10 that you are lacking only in what you do not give. The belief in  lack is a temptation of the human experience. This will relate to all
T3:16.12 might bring. These fears rob you of your certainty and result in a  lack of trust. The key to resisting these temptations is not
T3:19.6 been blamed for all actions that have arisen from real and perceived  lack. Yet the body has no will and the survival of the true Self is
T4:1.7 stated as all are chosen for schooling. Some might look at this as  lack of choice, saying that anything that is mandatory allows no room
T4:1.8 made from fear or made from love. But there is, in other words, no  lack of choice. A choice is always made. A choice to accept or
T4:2.14 ideas of specialness. One of the best means for us to clarify the  lack of specialness implied in the statement that all are chosen, is
T4:8.8 inconsistent with God. Judgment is inconsistent with God. Bondage or  lack of freedom is inconsistent with God.

D:Day3.51 is depression, a lowering of spirits and energy, a lack of desire, a  lack of activity, a sinking feeling of going under, of going into the
D:Day3.59 universe, of God, of the All of All, and still accept the reality of  lack. You cannot accept that in the reality of unity all things come
D:Day4.9 way things “are” within the world. This is an anger that stems from  lack of choice. When you are “taught” the “way things are,” where is
D:Day4.43 once again become a glutton of want, when you once again feel the  lack that you would pray for? Surely this you can do, for I deny no
D:Day6.15 not to make it so. And so, abundance will have to come first,  lack of cause for worry will have to come first, an ability to focus
D:Day6.28 here—in the passionate acceptance of our work together. And so the  lack of desire you are experiencing for other areas of the life you
D:Day9.1 Freedom from want, freedom from  lack, freedom from repression, are what we will now enjoy together on
D:Day9.1 place of safety and of rest, a place away from “normal” life and the  lack of freedom you have experienced there. I am your refuge from the
D:Day9.12 comparison. It arose from seeking. It arose from your perception of  lack.
D:Day10.4 Conviction is tied to belief, and to a former  lack of belief that has been overcome. Reliance is not tied to belief
D:Day10.4 thus releases you from the need for belief. Certainty is complete  lack of doubt and any perceived need for doubt.
D:Day10.7 that lead you to either a state of confidence or to a state of  lack of confidence could be spoken of most succinctly by considering
D:Day10.8 You may have reacted to the intuition with confidence or with  lack of confidence.
D:Day10.11 these feelings as much as you have trusted in rational thought. This  lack of trust works both for you and against you now. It works for

D:Day13.5 no love there is no God present. Where there is no love there is a  lack of godliness or what you have defined as evil. A complete lack
D:Day13.5 is a lack of godliness or what you have defined as evil. A complete  lack of love creates formidable obstacles, or in other words,
D:Day13.7 totally spacious, for fear is part of the density of form, being a  lack of love.

T4:10.1 as your own teacher, to becoming a true student, and to now  leading you beyond the time of being a student to the realization of
D:7.18 Revelation is of God. Observation, vision, and desire are steps  leading you beyond what the individual, separated self sees, to the

D:8.4 your natural talent or ability has been one of the primary factors  leading to this realization. It has been one of the primary factors
D:8.4 leading to this realization. It has been one of the primary factors  leading to this realization because a part of you has always known
D:9.10 not inconsistent with our aims here. Learning always has as its goal  leading the learner beyond learning. With “A Treatise on the New” we

C:10.3 This will lead to seeming failure to learn what I would have you  learn. What God would have me teach, you cannot fail to learn, but
C:10.3 have you learn. What God would have me teach, you cannot fail to  learn, but neither can you learn of it in parts. The thought system
C:10.3 would have me teach, you cannot fail to learn, but neither can you  learn of it in parts. The thought system of truth is as wholly
C:10.6 ear, the lie that it would have you believe makes all else you would  learn here as impossible as this. You listen to this voice because it
C:11.1 that causes it to function, then you would indeed be required to  learn things on your own, for all true learning must come from your
C:11.3 risk of trying too hard to be earnest rather than simply desiring to  learn.
C:11.4 is all about is as ridiculous as feeling as if you have failed to  learn what love is. Neither can happen. And your perception that
C:18.8 have attempted to help you see: a world you can observe and  learn in and from, for as long as you would choose to learn what the
C:18.8 observe and learn in and from, for as long as you would choose to  learn what the idea of separation would teach you. Making a new
C:18.8 idea of separation would teach you. Making a new choice, a choice to  learn from unity, is what this Course prepares you for.
C:18.9 of a split mind. It cannot be emphasized strongly enough that you  learn what you choose to learn. For proof of this all you need do is
C:18.9 be emphasized strongly enough that you learn what you choose to  learn. For proof of this all you need do is look at the world that
C:18.9 you need do is look at the world that was created from your wish to  learn what the idea of separation would teach you. When you resided
C:18.9 the extent of involvement this learning would require. In order to  learn what the idea of separation would teach you, you needed to
C:18.11 unity will alter your belief system and that of others, for what you  learn in unity is shared. Because you are currently learning from
C:18.13 from what unity can teach you must be birthed as an idea. To hear or  learn of another’s idea is not to give birth to it. You thus must
C:18.23 learning device. But you have not recognized this and have failed to  learn that all you experience as painful is the result of feelings of
C:19.5 of another kind is your willingness to accept that you are here to  learn, and that your body can provide the means.
C:19.10 a body by those who believed in me, although I had a body to help me  learn just as you do.
C:19.12 reunited with me as they were united with the Christ. You thus must  learn to see yourself as you see your brothers and sisters, and place
C:22.16 apart from everything else within your world. Anyone wanting to  learn anything about you would be wiser to observe you as you are
C:22.19 cannot conceive of the story without the “I.” Yet this you must  learn to do, and this task is given you as an exercise.
C:23.23 You are not being tested but given opportunities for unlearning. To  learn that a previously held belief is no longer valid is the only
C:23.25 of course your mind will resist unlearning what it has striven to  learn—return your dedication to union. Acknowledge your mind’s
C:23.27 situations is a reflection of belief that you have nothing to  learn. An attitude of openness is required for unlearning and new
C:23.29 You might ask, how do you  learn what you have failed to learn previously? What are the lessons?
C:23.29 You might ask, how do you learn what you have failed to  learn previously? What are the lessons? What is the curriculum? How
C:24.1 Where you learned to hate, you will  learn to love. Where you learned to fear, you will learn safety.
C:24.1 to hate, you will learn to love. Where you learned to fear, you will  learn safety. Where you learned to distrust, you will learn trust.
C:24.1 fear, you will learn safety. Where you learned to distrust, you will  learn trust. And each learning experience will be a learning
C:25.12 and vulnerable state. During the time of tenderness, you will  learn, through the practice of devotion, to identify and reject all
C:25.19 feelings of unlearning, and should be accepted as such. You will  learn that while some things you have done and will continue to do
C:25.19 they may still be done with patience, grace, and love. You will  learn that other things you have done, beliefs you have held,
C:25.23 or that the answer you have received is correct, you will soon  learn to trust this quiet process of discernment. You will know you
C:25.24 way. Remind yourself that you have nothing to lose. You will soon  learn that this is so. You will also soon realize why this time of
C:27.13 you are. Living in relationship is living in the present. How do you  learn to move from living in separation to living in relationship?
C:27.17 As you  learn to live in relationship in the present, this confusion will
C:29.27 No chance to  learn or grow is ever missed. Each still exists, though not in time.
C:30.2 some eventual outcome, rather than for your being. You attempt to  learn for something other than your Self, for some purpose other than
C:30.2 for being separated from the Self and your function here. When you  learn in order to contribute something to your work and your world,
C:30.3 order to make it part of your Self. Be like the little children, and  learn in order to claim your learning for your Self. Learn who you
C:30.3 children, and learn in order to claim your learning for your Self.  Learn who you are through each experience rather than learning in
C:31.13 Impossible learning goals lead to depression. This is why we must  learn anew with a mind and heart joined in wholeheartedness.
C:31.20 to love are seen in a new light, a light that keeps what you would  learn to help you remember who you are, and in that remembrance
C:31.22 think you are, but about who you truly are, and yet it is the way to  learn the difference while learning is still necessary.
C:31.23 lies within everything that exists, as it lies within you. As you  learn that who you are is love, no deception is possible, and you can
C:31.28 If you but change what you look for, what you see and what you  learn will also change.
C:31.29 back what you think your brothers and sisters want to see, they can  learn nothing from you. If your truth about who you think you are
C:31.37 ideas of our Father and me as you have realized that you are here to  learn. Now, with a clear learning goal in mind, these idealized
T1:1.1 A split mind does not  learn for a split mind is incapable of giving and receiving as one. A
T1:2.1 ending is but a beginning in truth and has led you to readiness to  learn the art of thought.
T1:2.5 continues here as well. The difference is that you are now ready to  learn a new means of response to this unlearning and learning. That
T1:2.7 on having the discipline required to train your mind to focus and to  learn, or shamed yourself when you were unable to do so. To those
T1:2.7 and thus further entrenched the ego-mind. To think that you could  learn the truth of who you are through these same means was the
T1:4.3 in other words, a way of thinking, the new way that we are going to  learn together. They are the state of giving and receiving as one.
T1:4.20 But you must give up your penchant for interpretation before you can  learn to respond. I realize that this will concern you while you
T1:4.20 is for you to begin to practice the art of thought and thus begin to  learn the difference.
T1:4.21 As was already stated, the first opportunities for you to  learn the art of thought will be provided through what we have called
T1:4.23 of the mode by which the art of thought teaches and helps you  learn. It is not through study, effort, or reinterpretation but
T1:7.4 they were and no matter how much they spoke the truth will be to not  learn the new.
T1:10.12 knowing cannot come to you in peace? Why would you believe you can  learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in peace
T1:10.12 believe you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot  learn in peace eternal?
T2:3.7 create beautiful music already exists within you, you do not have to  learn what beautiful music is, only how to express it. If you see
T2:3.7 only how to express it. If you see beauty within, you do not have to  learn what beauty is, only how to express it. Expression and creation
T2:4.6 my dear brothers and sisters, and this is what it is time for you to  learn.
T2:6.9 with what you made. This is what is happening as you unlearn and  learn in unison. You are creating the state of unity as a new reality
T2:7.19 Self joined in unity at the place of your heart. From this place you  learn to discriminate, to separate the false from the true, for your
T2:10.2 self as teacher has now been replaced with the belief that you only  learn in unity.
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
T2:10.12 ego, or in other words, as long as you would continue to attempt to  learn in the same way that you have previously learned, you will not
T2:10.12 learn in the same way that you have previously learned, you will not  learn because the “you” that will be involved in the learning process
T2:10.13 wholeheartedness. You are in a state in which you are able to  learn. I am here to show you the way to the Christ in you. I began my
T2:10.13 return of wholeheartedness, the state of union in which all that you  learn is shared, first by mind and heart, and then in unity with your
T2:10.16 put behind you or chosen for specific outcomes. While many love to  learn for the sake of learning alone, still they would be loath to
T2:12.7 Calling is not only something you receive but something you must  learn to give. As you have come to see calling as a gift and a
T3:4.1 opposite. This Course has stated time and time again that you cannot  learn on your own and that resigning as your own teacher is the only
T3:4.1 your own and that resigning as your own teacher is the only way to  learn a new curriculum. This Course will not call you to effort of
T3:5.5 have already tried to do. These lessons you have already tried to  learn. This Course has come so that these many things that you have
T3:5.5 not be repeated, just as the crucifixion came to end the need to  learn through suffering and death.
T3:9.3 you are in a place so foreign that you must immediately begin to  learn again, starting with the smallest building blocks of knowledge,
T3:10.3 Although many a child has been blamed for his or her failure to  learn, blame of yourself is as uncalled for as is blaming a child for
T3:10.6 and realize that all lessons are gifts. What you have struggled to  learn in the past you have struggled with only because you did not
T3:10.11 they are not. You are no longer called to a time of uncertainty to  learn through contrast the lessons of certainty. Realize that this is
T3:10.12 the way of living in the House of Truth. You will not need to  learn a foreign language to dwell in this new house, but you will
T3:10.12 a foreign language to dwell in this new house, but you will need to  learn what will at first seem to you a foreign thought system. This
T3:10.15 people will gravitate toward beautiful music. Many will be eager to  learn what you have remembered because they will realize that the
T3:11.15 of varying degrees of awareness. As the old continues to help you to  learn lessons of the new you will be seeing how the lessons of the
T3:13.4 and leaving illusion behind. The new thought system is simple to  learn. What is of love is truth. What is of fear is illusion. The

T3:15.11 system of the truth. As we have said before, it is impossible to  learn the new with the thought system of the old. It is impossible to
T3:15.11 the new with the thought system of the old. It is impossible to  learn the truth through the same methods that have been used in the
T3:15.11 truth through the same methods that have been used in the past to  learn illusion. This Course teaches that love cannot be learned. I
T3:15.11 system. Thus, truth, like love, is not something that you can  learn. The Good News is that you have no need to learn the truth. The
T3:15.11 that you can learn. The Good News is that you have no need to  learn the truth. The truth exists within you and you are now aware of
T3:15.13 you to your Self. Despite whatever method you feel you used to  learn what you have learned, what this Course did was bypass the way
T3:15.13 the way of learning of the ego and call upon the Christ in you to  learn anew. That learning put an end to the old. Living what you have
T3:17.5 from the self. While it was important to the desired experience to  learn the lessons of what was observable within the physical realm,
T3:17.5 of your experience in physical form. Since your true Self could not  learn the untrue, a new self, which we have called the ego-self, was
T3:17.5 we have called the ego-self, was made. Since the ego-self cannot  learn the true, your true Self had to be appealed to for this
T3:17.8 Without this means of communication with the ego-self the ability to  learn the truth could not have returned to you. The “time” of the
T3:18.1 rightly then, how those who have not learned by the Holy Spirit will  learn. They will now learn through observation.
T3:18.1 who have not learned by the Holy Spirit will learn. They will now  learn through observation.
T3:18.2 worship and devotion. Minds that have been unwilling to accept or  learn an unobservable truth, will now accept and learn from
T3:18.2 to accept or learn an unobservable truth, will now accept and  learn from observable truth. This is why you must become that
T3:18.9 instructed by the thought system of the truth. Thus your eyes will  learn to observe only the truth, even unto seeing what before but
T3:20.4 to reveal to you your fears concerning the miracle so that you would  learn from them. The second was to assure you that the miracle is the

T4:1.7 they do not learn what is taught in school, they will, by default,  learn what is not taught in school. If you can consider this example
T4:1.8 seen amid many school systems in the current time, the choice to not  learn what is taught in school, when taken up by many, becomes a
T4:1.8 is always made. A choice to accept or reject, say yes or say no, to  learn this or to learn that, to learn now or to learn later.
T4:1.8 A choice to accept or reject, say yes or say no, to learn this or to  learn that, to learn now or to learn later.

T4:1.10 have rebelled and will rebel against it. Those who do not choose to  learn from the curriculum, will, like school children, learn through
T4:1.10 not choose to learn from the curriculum, will, like school children,  learn through what is not of the curriculum because they have chosen
T4:1.10 is being spoken of here. But all means are for one end. All will  learn the same content, for all are chosen; and all learning, no
T4:1.21 state of consciousness and that you have given your willingness to  learn in a new way. The new way is here. If you are now to learn
T4:1.21 to learn in a new way. The new way is here. If you are now to  learn directly, you are also now to share directly. This is the way
T4:1.24 All across the world, people of the world have been demanding to  learn directly, through experience, and saying “no more” to the
T4:1.24 in your children and they are not only ready, but also demanding to  learn through observation and direct communication or experience.
T4:2.25 As you allow awareness of this relationship to grow in you, you will  learn the lessons that are being spoken of within this Treatise.
T4:5.2 of your time here as that of being apprentice musicians. You must  learn or relearn what you have forgotten so that you can once again
T4:5.12 consciousness, to end the time of the intermediary and to begin to  learn directly, you are given the same opportunity that was formerly
T4:7.7 in the past, and in the future, to bring you the lessons you would  learn in order to return you to your Self and the unity of
T4:7.8 remind you that no choice is wrong. Some will choose to continue to  learn through the full variety of the human experience even after it
T4:8.7 you experience in dreams, can you not see that you would have to  learn to breathe, to speak, to walk, much as a baby learns to do
T4:8.10 do with a child who is too impatient, too bright, too eager, to  learn slowly and mature gracefully? Do you withdraw your love? Never.
T4:8.16 the ego’s answer to being a learning being—choosing something to  learn that it could master. Yet all that this was, was a desire to be
T4:8.16 desire consistent with your true nature and your purpose here. To  learn everything there is to know about even one subject, and to call
T4:9.7 grateful to yourself that you have had the courage to listen and to  learn and to study what these forerunners of the new, these prophets
T4:9.7 forerunners of the new, these prophets of the new have called you to  learn. Be appreciative of every tool that has advanced your progress.
T4:10.4 your relationships as teachers. It is here that you can begin to  learn to let go of learning because it is here that learning has been
T4:10.14 This will not happen through learning but through sharing. You can  learn to change the world, but not how to create a new world. Does
T4:10.14 but not how to create a new world. Does this not make sense? You can  learn about who you were and who others were, but you cannot learn
T4:10.14 You can learn about who you were and who others were, but you cannot  learn anymore who you are or who those are who have joined you in
T4:10.14 to creating who you are anew in unity and relationship. You can  learn from the past but not from the future. When you build upon what
T4:10.14 the past but not from the future. When you build upon what you can  learn you build upon the past and create not the future but an
T4:12.3 of the new already in existence. They are beginning to see that they  learn as one. They are beginning to see that their questions are the
T4:12.14 not bring you to this state and that you would continue to need to  learn, and to perhaps suffer from, the conditions of learning!
T4:12.23 In other words, you, as a being of singular consciousness, could  learn the thought patterns of a singular consciousness because it was
T4:12.26 a foreign land but returned to your home of origin. What you cannot  learn you can remember. What you cannot learn will simply be known
T4:12.26 of origin. What you cannot learn you can remember. What you cannot  learn will simply be known through sharing.
D:1.4 want to figure out what to do, what comes next, what you need to  learn, how to better “prepare” for what is ahead.
D:1.18 So what is it that we will now do? If I do not teach, and you do not  learn, what is our continuing means for completing this
D:1.21 allowing and accepting the state of unity even though you could not  learn how to do so. This has been the difficulty with every
D:1.22 needed. You have now come upon a curriculum that is impossible to  learn. No teacher is available for none is needed. And yet many of

D:2.19 system based upon faulty judgment. This system was meant to help you  learn to deal fairly with a hostile environment and then to develop a
D:2.20 seeming difficulty with this new beginning stems from your desire to  learn anew. You would say, “If the justice system doesn’t work, let’s
D:2.20 work, teach me a new way.” You would say, “I will work hard to  learn and to implement the new if you will just tell me what that new

D:5.16 the answer to the question of “What is next?” If there is nothing to  learn, if coursework is behind you and accomplishment is complete,
D:5.17 now is your confusion concerning what is. This is crucial as you  learn to accept what is and to deny what is not. While the question

D:6.25 The ego, however, narrowed your ideas of what the body was here to  learn to ideas of survival. You thus learned to survive rather than
D:7.2 You were told within this Course that what you  learn in unity is shared. This language was used because you were
D:7.23 provision of the time of learning that allows the learning being to  learn at his or her own pace and to pass this learning on in time.
D:8.2 now, this you have heard before. This idea of no longer needing to  learn has intrigued you since it was first mentioned, and yet it

D:8.8 Between the Course and the Treatises, all of what you needed to  learn was put forth. What we are now doing is discussing what was
D:8.10 likely linked to the natural ability or talent you did not have to  learn, to that which was given and available just a step beyond where
D:13.9 Just as you were taught that you could not  learn on your own, you are now being told by one who knows that you

D:Day3.2 leaders, guides, authorities, for only through them did you  learn. You are beginning to see now that this learning was not a
D:Day3.25 In our dialogue, we have begun to use examples of what you did not  learn in order to demonstrate that what you learned is not true. What
D:Day3.25 you do not have enough, that you will only have what you can earn or  learn, that only through effort will you gain, and that with your
D:Day3.26 these things. They were learned, to the degree that you could  learn them within the teachings of A Course of Love. But beyond
D:Day3.29 to demonstrate, when it is actually the easiest. You think you could  learn what is for you the most difficult type of learning, be it
D:Day3.29 be it philosophy, math, or foreign languages, before you could  learn how to make money, or in other words, to have abundance. You
D:Day3.45 no choice but to continue to struggle and strive, to earn and to  learn, to, in short, carry on in the world as you always have.
D:Day3.59 striving except money. You cannot accept that you no longer have to  learn and accept the condition of learning that is want.
D:Day3.61 in relationship with all that flows from unity. This you cannot  learn but you can practice. Thus your practice begins.
D:Day4.8 Even after the onset of language, children continue to  learn without thinking. Does this not sound odd, foreign to you? And
D:Day4.9 The ability to  learn is given to all in like measure. The conformity of learning,
D:Day4.9 is the product of an externalized system. That you all attempt to  learn the same things, and in coming to identify the world in the
D:Day4.20 was natural that my example life was seen as something from which to  learn. In order to “teach” what my life represented to those who did

D:Day4.49 without making this wholehearted choice, but you will read only to  learn and learning will not transform you. If you do not truly and
D:Day4.52 that needs to be left behind. You will still think you have more to  learn because you are angry, depressed, in a state of denial contrary
D:Day5.18 You want relief and an end to effort, not another lesson to  learn that you will be told is not a lesson. Not another cause for
D:Day5.23 discussed earlier. While many will heal, all attempts to teach or  learn “how to” heal must be thwarted, for if not, the pattern of
D:Day6.30 in which you find yourself. There is no time to wait while you  learn, or think you learn, the qualities that will allow this. This

D:Day8.27 All feelings of non-acceptance lead to a feeling of needing to  learn “how to” reach acceptance of that which you do not like, or
D:Day9.25 do so but desired to do something else! Desired to wait, desired to  learn, desired to imitate.
D:Day21.2 pattern of learning you have been so familiar with, for in order to  learn, the source of wisdom, even though you may have seen it as
D:Day25.2 will fight back. If there is nothing new to record, nothing new to  learn, no new divine inspiration, a part of your mind will attempt to

T2:1.6 place in the sense that you have imagined it. Even rest, once truly  learned, is simply rest. It is not a resting place, a place to stop
T2:1.6 not a point at which you arrive, never to depart. Rest, when truly  learned, is a state of being in which struggle has ceased and peace
T2:1.8 that you do not yet fully recognize is that of unity. As you have  learned much of unity within the context of this Course, unity, like

T3:14.2 had passed and see the truth, realizing that a lesson had been  learned and becoming aware that for a while you but flirted with
T3:15.11 the past to learn illusion. This Course teaches that love cannot be  learned. I have said here that love, peace, and truth are
T3:15.13 are simply concerned with assisting you to live what you have  learned. Learning was needed in order to return you to your Self.
T3:15.13 Despite whatever method you feel you used to learn what you have  learned, what this Course did was bypass the way of learning of the
T3:15.13 anew. That learning put an end to the old. Living what you have  learned will usher in the new.
T3:17.5 you now exist. It may seem ridiculous to say that the untrue can be  learned, but this is exactly what has been learned during the time of
T3:17.5 that the untrue can be learned, but this is exactly what has been  learned during the time of your experience in physical form. Since
T3:18.1 You may wonder rightly then, how those who have not  learned by the Holy Spirit will learn. They will now learn through

T4:1.20 did occur and has continued to occur even unto this time. You have  learned much of the nature of the truth by seeing what you have

T4:1.21 It is the truth that you have now learned all that can be  learned from this state of consciousness and that you have given your

T4:12.17 The time for puzzlement is over. Pass on no more of the prevailing  learned wisdom. I told you once we would create a new language and

T4:12.22 It is your innate consciousness, a consciousness far too vast to be  learned but one easily shared by all.
T4:12.25 unity. Realize that it is a truly new state, a state that cannot be  learned, a state the awareness of which can only be revealed to you
T4:12.26 akin to being stranded in a foreign land with none of the ways you  learned how to adapt in the past being of service to you. That is how
D:1.16 as your reality and acting from that truth. Once the truth has been  learned, the nature of untruth remains only as an acceptance of
D:1.17 can serve as reminders as you continue to become the Self you have  learned that you are. But further learning is not what will complete
D:1.21 These Dialogues begin with prayer to remind you of what you have  learned in unity, a learning that has been different from all

D:3.9 of the future to be created. These are the ideas that replace the  learned concepts we leave behind.
D:3.21 What you need remember now is that your separated self already  learned this concept of giving and receiving, and that for the

D:Day3.24 the ego is no longer with you, the pattern remains because what you  learned, and the way in which you learned it, remains.

T2:10.10 You forget constantly that the Christ in you is the  learner here. What need is there for a computer brain or for the ego
T2:10.10 is there for a computer brain or for the ego to be teacher when the  learner in you is the all-powerful? The learner in you is the
T2:10.10 ego to be teacher when the learner in you is the all-powerful? The  learner in you is the unifying force of the universe. The learning
T4:10.1 gave up this role and became comfortable in the true role of  learner. You are now asked to be willing to give up the role of
T4:10.1 of learner. You are now asked to be willing to give up the role of  learner and to believe that you will become comfortable and more in

D:4.16 had become an externalized self took you, the true Self and the true  learner, out of the learning loop. Obviously these systems, built as
D:9.10 with our aims here. Learning always has as its goal leading the  learner beyond learning. With “A Treatise on the New” we established

D:Day21.6 pattern of learning had as its outcome the sameness of teacher and  learner—the transfer of knowledge that would eventually make
D:Day21.6 —the transfer of knowledge that would eventually make teacher and  learner equal. Means and end have always been the same.

T4:11.3 as your teacher. In unity there is no need for teachers or for  learners. There is need only for the sustainability of
T4:12.27 was a pattern to the process of learning that was shared by all  learners and inherent to your natures. The means were different for

C:I.9 how to escape the reality of the mind with the mind’s pattern of  learning or of logic. You cannot live in a new and fresh world and
C:P.3 not need to, then who is this Course and all other such courses for?  Learning our true identity, the identity of the Self that is capable
C:P.3 our true identity, the identity of the Self that is capable of  learning, is something everyone must do. Can the ego learn this?
C:P.4 spirit and part ego, assuming there would be such a state in which  learning could take place would be meaningless.
C:P.6 What is it in you that is capable of  learning? What is it in you that recognizes that ego is not what you
C:P.7 differs from spirit. The Christ in you is that which is capable of  learning in human form what it means to be a child of God. The Christ
C:P.8 Christ is God’s extension of who He is. In order to end the need for  learning, you must know who you are and what this means. Where the
C:P.24 still and ever present. But the weakening done your ego by whatever  learning you have done has left room for strength, a strength that
C:P.29 studied much and learned the lessons of the Course well, leave their  learning and their teaching sit idly by while they earn their living
C:P.43 You were your Self before you began your  learning, and the ego cannot take your Self from you but only can
C:P.44 approach, an approach that seems at first to leave behind abstract  learning and the complex mechanisms of the mind that so betray you.
C:P.44 away from intellect, the pride of the ego, and approach this final  learning through the realm of the heart. This is why, to end
C:1.5 Yet when you apply your thought to  learning you learn. Let this encourage you. This is an ability we can
C:1.8 consider that you could still learn from your mistakes and find the  learning in the end to be the same, and this you surely might do from
C:1.9 own at the beginning, before she knows the way. There is no shame in  learning. No shame in following the course another has put forth.
C:1.9 exactly the same way as another. This is true with the teaching and  learning of information, and true with the teaching and learning of
C:1.9 teaching and learning of information, and true with the teaching and  learning of the truth as well. The only way that you can fail to
C:1.10 anything on your own. Your determination to do so only blocks your  learning. It is only through union with me that you learn because it
C:1.11 A teacher always has a role in the  learning of the student. This does not diminish the student’s
C:1.13 what you can do on your own, only then will your autonomy and your  learning be complete, for this is all your learning has been for. The
C:1.13 your autonomy and your learning be complete, for this is all your  learning has been for. The goal of this world is for you to stand on
C:2.9 the inability of your true Self to forget that gives you hope of  learning to recognize love, and, with that recognition, of ending the
C:2.16 involving the other. You believe that to know with your mind is a  learning process that stands apart from all else that you are. Thus
C:2.18 Yet your mind too rejoiced in the  learning of all the teachings that have brought you here,
C:2.19 even unto the greater peace and contentment offered by your  learning. It can and does see itself as better and stronger and more
C:2.21 still with you regardless of your perception of the outcome of your  learning. Your perception of an outcome within your control is all
C:3.10 use the mind to deal in concepts, you have been unable to let new  learning have its effect. This is because you believe your mind is in
C:3.11 What has this meant for  learning that is not of this world? It means that you filter it
C:3.11 a certain way certain things will happen as a result. Like a child  learning not to touch a stove because it is hot and a burn will
C:3.11 not to touch a stove because it is hot and a burn will result, or  learning that a warm blanket is comforting, you subject it to a
C:3.12 another, and it is only in the study of the two that you believe  learning takes place.
C:3.13 of your concepts of the heart, concepts much more in line with  learning that is not of this world.
C:3.14 understand. As you read, be aware your heart, for this is where this  learning enters and will stay. Your heart is now your eyes and ears.
C:3.15 What this will mean to you goes far beyond the  learning of this Course. One such concept, given up and not replaced,
C:3.16 heart. We give up trying. We simply learn in a new way and in our  learning realize that our light shines from within our heart, our
C:3.16 the Christ in us abides and here we concentrate our energies and our  learning, soon to learn that what we would know cannot be computed in
C:4.8 Yearning,  learning, seeking, acquiring, the need to own, the need to keep, the
C:6.1 them. Forgive yourself. Forgive God. Then you will be ready to begin  learning just how different it really is to live in the reality of
C:6.6 been created. This simple realization will start you on the path to  learning what your heart would have you learn.
C:7.3 and names one thing this and one thing that—is the basis of all  learning in your world. It is based on contrast and opposites and on
C:8.3 level, though in truth, no levels separate union at all. As a  learning being, the idea of levels is helpful to you and will aid you
C:8.3 aid you in seeing that you progress from one step, or one level of  learning, to another. This is more a process of remembering than
C:8.3 of learning, to another. This is more a process of remembering than  learning, and this you will understand as memory begins to return to
C:8.5 at emotions, a way that will allow them to assist you in your  learning rather than block you from it.
C:9.50 Before you can begin, however, we must expand on the lessons you are  learning by observing your own self. Now we seek to uncover the
C:10.11 your attempt to do miracles on your own. In the early stages of your  learning, you will be tempted to play a game of make believe. You
C:10.16 To give up the body entirely is a choice you need not make. As your  learning advances you will see that this is possible, but there may
C:10.23 or the shadow form on the ground as you walk to and fro, you will be  learning the only separation that can be useful to you.
C:11.1 would indeed be required to learn things on your own, for all true  learning must come from your Source.
C:11.3 know more than you now know, and why you begin each new course of  learning by feeling as if you have less. You then begin your attempts
C:11.3 have less than anyone else. Some of you may be confident in your  learning skills and rush in to conquer this new territory as you have
C:11.3 in tow, and when they have turned the last page be done with  learning what this book would have to teach and rush on to the next.
C:11.4 failure are detrimental here. To feel you have achieved success in  learning what love is all about is as ridiculous as feeling as if you
C:11.5 the barriers that keep you from realizing what love is. That is the  learning goal of this Course—your awareness of what love is—and
C:15.8 —one of great necessity to overcome if you are to reach the  learning goal this Course has set. Loyalty stems from faith, and
C:15.9 act of treachery. To give your allegiance to your Father and to the  learning goals this Course has set is but an act of treason upon the
C:17.17 for it is beyond concepts. But now we begin to integrate your  learning as we move to wholeness. The first move toward wholeness is
C:18.6 keeps you separate, then you can begin to see it as what it is, a  learning device given you by a loving creator. Before the idea of
C:18.6 loving creator. Before the idea of separation, there was no need for  learning. But a loving creator creates not that which can have a need
C:18.6 that which can have a need go unfulfilled. As soon as the need for  learning arose, the perfect means to fulfill that need was
C:18.7 because there was no external world to be perceived. A  learning device, when not perceived as such, holds not much hope of
C:18.9  Learning from unity requires an integrated mind and heart, or
C:18.9 mind and heart, or wholeheartedness. A half-hearted approach to this  learning will not work, nor will the attention of a split mind. It
C:18.9 it was that you were asking for, or the extent of involvement this  learning would require. In order to learn what the idea of separation
C:18.11 for what you learn in unity is shared. Because you are currently  learning from separation, however, each must experience unity
C:18.12 temporarily collapsing time. Time is actually a measurement of  learning, or the “time” it takes for learning to pass from one level
C:18.12 is actually a measurement of learning, or the “time” it takes for  learning to pass from one level to another through experience, for
C:18.12 to pass from one level to another through experience, for here  learning is experienced in time.
C:18.13 In order for your experience base to change from that of  learning in separation to that of learning in unity, learning from
C:18.13 base to change from that of learning in separation to that of  learning in unity, learning from what unity can teach you must be
C:18.13 from that of learning in separation to that of learning in unity,  learning from what unity can teach you must be birthed as an idea. To
C:18.13 birth to it. You thus must each experience the birth of the idea of  learning from unity in order for it to come from within and leave not
C:18.22 we do so, we must clarify further the function of the body as a  learning device. Your body seems to experience both pleasure and
C:18.22 Your body seems to experience both pleasure and pain, yet as a  learning device, it is neutral. It does not experience, but only
C:18.22 you and the body is the perfect relationship for the purpose of  learning, since both the experience and the reaction to the
C:18.22 when you have misperceived the body as your home rather than as a  learning device. Because you have misperceived the body as your home,
C:18.23 Yet the body has no mercy to offer the separated self. It is only a  learning device. But you have not recognized this and have failed to
C:18.24 real Self that would dispel it. The Self you have taken out of the  learning loop is the Self of love.
C:19.1 There was no evil intent in the creation of the body as a  learning device, and as a learning device it was perfectly created.
C:19.1 intent in the creation of the body as a learning device, and as a  learning device it was perfectly created. The problem lies in what
C:19.1 as yourself did ideas of glorifying the body arise. To glorify a  learning device makes no sense. And yet in creating the perfect
C:19.4 glorify the separated self lies the world that was created for your  learning, and that so exists in truth. It is not the only world by
C:19.15 my experience. While many have learned much of others, this type of  learning is but a starting point, a gateway to experience.
C:21.5 language of your mind and heart. Your mind insists on thinking and  learning in a certain way, a way contrary to the language of your
C:22.2 We will be letting images serve as  learning devices. They will enhance our use of language so that our
C:23.1 is the great teacher. And your loving relationships the means of  learning love.
C:23.7 Let me remind you of a key  learning aid discussed some pages back: You would not be other than
C:23.12 your belief in form. This is consistent with our primary focus on  learning from the heart. The mind goes from the small to the large,
C:23.24 These  learning opportunities call for a period of engagement with life.
C:23.26 you will indeed feel tested and will try to take control of the  learning situation. Not taking control, however, is the key to
C:23.27 Attempting to exert control over  learning situations is a reflection of belief that you have nothing
C:23.27 to learn. An attitude of openness is required for unlearning and new  learning both. Control opposes openness. Mastery comes through the
C:23.27 openness. Mastery comes through the process of both unlearning and  learning anew. This is but another way of stating that which was
C:23.27 desire to remain your own teacher and/or to choose your teachers and  learning situations. Neither can occur if you would truly choose to
C:23.28 You recognize that your false beliefs were the result of faulty  learning. As unlearning is replaced by new learning, judgment falls
C:23.28 were the result of faulty learning. As unlearning is replaced by new  learning, judgment falls away as your innocence is established. Can a
C:23.29 What is the curriculum? How will you know when you have achieved a  learning objective? Yet how can you become a master of what another
C:23.29 only you can master. Only your own life experiences have led to the  learning you have accumulated and translated into beliefs. Only your
C:24.1 Where you learned to distrust, you will learn trust. And each  learning experience will be a learning experience because it will
C:24.1 you will learn trust. And each learning experience will be a  learning experience because it will touch your heart. It may be as
C:24.4 forerunner of compassion. The time of tenderness is thus the final  learning ground before accomplishment is complete. The learning that
C:24.4 the final learning ground before accomplishment is complete. The  learning that occurs during the time of tenderness is learning from
C:24.4 complete. The learning that occurs during the time of tenderness is  learning from love. No lessons learned without love touch your heart.
C:24.4 lessons are both unlearning and moving through unlearning to new  learning. These lessons must be accomplished in life and require an
C:25.1 to be included in what you do. Devotion is thus our first lesson in  learning how to be engaged in life during the time of tenderness.
C:25.24 Experience is necessary to complete the cycle of unlearning and  learning.
C:27.12 Because you do not understand does not mean that you are not  learning the truth. You do not understand because you think in terms
C:28.6 of dawn. It is the middle of the journey, a time of teaching and of  learning both. It is the time of planting and of harvest that comes
C:29.2 service into your lives. But now you shall. For you cannot bring the  learning you have done here into an engagement with life and not
C:30.2 is sought, the journey becomes but the means for getting there. All  learning is seen as preparation for the future, or for some eventual
C:30.3 Your  learning must take on a new focus. Be like the little children, and
C:30.3 Self. Be like the little children, and learn in order to claim your  learning for your Self. Learn who you are through each experience
C:30.3 for your Self. Learn who you are through each experience rather than  learning in order to find out who you are or what your contribution
C:31.13 to come to understanding with a split mind is impossible. Impossible  learning goals lead to depression. This is why we must learn anew
C:31.19 be no more. But in order to remember your Self, you need a means of  learning who you are. Everything that has ever happened in your life
C:31.19 Everything that has ever happened in your life has happened as a  learning device to help you remember who you are. Those things about
C:31.19 unlearned. While you hang on to them by keeping them hidden, no  learning occurs.
C:31.22 you truly are, and yet it is the way to learn the difference while  learning is still necessary.
C:31.26 as a part of you. What you have not yet learned from awaits your  learning—or in other words, awaits the transfer of your feelings
C:31.37 as you have realized that you are here to learn. Now, with a clear  learning goal in mind, these idealized relationships must be
C:32.2 Trinity always available in every situation, and for whichever  learning mode you are most comfortable. All learning modes, however,
C:32.2 and for whichever learning mode you are most comfortable. All  learning modes, however, will eventually return you to the Source,
T1:1.2 will attempt to give specific examples of what to look for as your  learning continues, or how to identify wholehearted responses from
T1:1.3 need of knowing has been provided within A Course of Love. That your  learning does not feel complete is not a failing of this Course or of
T1:1.3 complete is not a failing of this Course or of yourself. That your  learning does not feel complete is the result of forgetfulness, which
T1:1.3 of forgetfulness, which is the opposite of mindfulness. Your further  learning then is learning based on mindfulness or remembering.
T1:1.3 which is the opposite of mindfulness. Your further learning then is  learning based on mindfulness or remembering.
T1:1.5 prepared you for this. As each situation that re-enacts a previous  learning experience arises, you will, if you trust your heart, be
T1:1.5 to you now and will allow you to give up any remnants of false  learning you acquired. All that you learned in error from identifying
T1:1.6 in the mechanics of the mind was consistent with the theme and  learning goals of this Course. The mechanics of the mind can in truth
T1:1.7 to be restful enough for it to even contemplate union or the new  learning required in order to facilitate your return to union. Your
T1:1.8 impression that relying on feeling alone would complete your  learning would in actuality leave your learning incomplete. Without
T1:1.8 alone would complete your learning would in actuality leave your  learning incomplete. Without this “Treatise on the Art of Thought,”
T1:1.9 once in charge of all your thoughts. Since the ego is incapable of  learning the ego-mind had to be circumvented in order for true
T1:1.9 of learning the ego-mind had to be circumvented in order for true  learning to take place. This is what A Course of Love accomplished.
T1:1.9 to take place. This is what A Course of Love accomplished. This  learning was accomplished in you, making you The Accomplished. As The
T1:2.5 continues here. What was spoken of within A Course of Love as new  learning has begun and continues here as well. The difference is that
T1:2.5 now ready to learn a new means of response to this unlearning and  learning. That response is the art of thought.
T1:2.7 situation in the past was focus. You thus applied your thoughts to  learning subjects of a specific nature. Through this focus you
T1:2.8 It did not exist when you knew not of it and so your attempts at  learning have been valiant and are no cause for anxiety. But now this
T1:2.9 You have already succeeded in  learning in this new way once or you would not be here. This is your
T1:3.1 shaped your life. These opportunities are but the forerunners of new  learning. They are but opportunities to replace illusion with the
T1:3.18 would you know that disease was not meant to be to further someone’s  learning? If you were to ask to win the lottery, how could such

T1:6.2 How is this revelation to take place? It will begin by  learning the art of thought as the act of prayer. We have spoken
T1:7.2 includes the choice to suffer. This belief may accept suffering as a  learning device rather than a punishment, but it still, in its
T1:7.2 acceptance of a false notion, invites suffering. This belief accepts  learning through contrast, that evil is seen in relation to good,
T1:7.4 in such a way as your examples any longer. I have said a new way of  learning is needed and is here. To continue to rely on the ways of
T1:7.5 an ability to perceive differently, in order to make this new  learning possible. If you do not let what you have attained serve
T1:7.5 what you have attained serve you, you will not realize what this new  learning has been for. You may reach an ideal of human satisfaction
T1:10.6 These extremes of the human experience have been  learning devices. They have cracked open hearts and minds to the
T1:10.6 now be an observer and look upon them as your brothers and sisters  learning choice without choosing to return to learning in the same
T1:10.6 brothers and sisters learning choice without choosing to return to  learning in the same way again. You no longer need these experiences
T1:10.6 divine presence. Once you have learned to read you do not return to  learning to read over and over again even while you may continue to
T1:10.9 of profound joy or grief that also became an experience of profound  learning. You will think that you would not be who you are now
T1:10.10 what you have remembered to what was truly there. No moment of true  learning ever arrived without the Peace of God for without the Peace
T1:10.10 without the Peace of God for without the Peace of God no true  learning is possible.
T1:10.11 call peak experiences from experiences of extremes that served as  learning devices. Peak experiences often follow occasions of
T1:10.13 return to you now and you will see that peace is all you have sought  learning to attain. If you do not pause now and accept that it is
T2:3.3 Remember that it is the Christ in you that learns and raises  learning to the holiest of levels. It is the Christ in you that
T2:3.4 that learns may have been given little attention as you began your  learning, it cannot now be ignored. Now you have realized your
T2:3.4 your learning, it cannot now be ignored. Now you have realized your  learning. You have begun to see the changes that your learning is
T2:3.4 realized your learning. You have begun to see the changes that your  learning is capable of bringing to your life. You have felt the peace
T2:3.4 the embrace. You know that you are experiencing something real and  learning something that is of relevance even within the daily life
T2:3.4 the distinction between the ego-self that previously was the self of  learning and experience, and the Christ-Self that is now the Self of
T2:3.4 learning and experience, and the Christ-Self that is now the Self of  learning and experience. You must take on the mantle of your new
T2:3.6 If you still balk at the idea that the Christ could be in need of  learning, then your idea of the Christ is still based on an old way
T2:3.6 is still based on an old way of thinking, as are your ideas of  learning.
T2:3.7  Learning and accomplishment are not linear as you have perceived them
T2:4.3 than as who you are, you have not integrated these two pieces of  learning.
T2:4.4 This is the stage of  learning that you are at and what this Treatise addresses. This
T2:4.4 act within the world as the new Self you have identified. Just like  learning how to swim, it is a new way of movement. Just as moving
T2:4.6 A first step then in  learning to recognize when you are acting upon notions of who you
T2:4.17 As the old goes, the new arrives. There is no time-lapse in this  learning and so it is a condition of miracle readiness. The old is
T2:4.18 Course of Love, time is but a measurement of the “time” it takes for  learning to occur. As this notion of time dissolves, the state of
T2:5.2 only for a specific type of call, you will miss many unlearning and  learning opportunities. Thus recognition of the different calls that
T2:5.3 to the already accomplished. Such a call signals an end to  learning from the lessons of the past and a beginning of learning
T2:5.3 an end to learning from the lessons of the past and a beginning of  learning from the new. This Course itself is such a call, an
T2:5.5 are often calls that come to you from within the teaching and  learning ground of relationships. You may be literally “called to
T2:5.6 that comes as an announcement is not. They represent the remnants of  learning from the past, the final breaking of old patterns. They may
T2:5.7 signs or demands will be calls that assist you in integrating this  learning and making it one with who you are. These lessons will bring
T2:6.2 you thus allow to govern your thinking. If time is but a measure of  learning, and if your learning is now at the stage at which it occurs
T2:6.2 your thinking. If time is but a measure of learning, and if your  learning is now at the stage at which it occurs in unison with
T2:6.2 this process and more quickly bring about the end of the pattern of  learning that you refer to as time. The end of the pattern of
T2:6.2 of learning that you refer to as time. The end of the pattern of  learning that you refer to as time is the beginning of the time of
T2:6.7 you that a chair is a chair and regard it as a fact. Through the  learning you have done since your birth, you have come to recognize a
T2:7.17 stated an opinion. While these modes of behavior, in themselves, are  learning aides that prepare you for acting with the certainty you
T2:8.1 In order for this  learning to come to completion, you must put into practice the belief
T2:8.1 relationships. While your love relationships will provide a rich  learning ground for you now, they must also now be separated from all
T2:8.2 one you come to know through relationship is your Self. This is the  learning ground on which you now stand. All that prevents you from
T2:8.8 Thus again is your  learning advanced by leaps and bounds formerly reserved for the
T2:9.2 all these tools, including needs, can ignite the combination of  learning and unlearning, the letting-go of one so that the other can
T2:9.12 As soon as the desire to hang on arises, both  learning and unlearning cease to occur. The desire to maintain a
T2:9.18 phase of coming to accept need and dependency is necessary only as a  learning ground of experience on which trust can grow. Once this
T2:10.3 today.” I want you now to keep this example in mind as we explore  learning in unity.
T2:10.10 The learner in you is the unifying force of the universe. The  learning you are in need of is the learning that will call who you
T2:10.10 force of the universe. The learning you are in need of is the  learning that will call who you are back to your united mind and
T2:10.11 Why, then, is this called  learning? Learning simply means to come to know. If what you know has
T2:10.11 Why, then, is this called learning?  Learning simply means to come to know. If what you know has been
T2:10.11 If what you know has been forgotten, you still are in need of the  learning that assists you in coming to know once again.
T2:10.12 you will not learn because the “you” that will be involved in the  learning process will not be the real you.
T2:10.15 it is hard for you to believe that the Christ in you is in need of  learning. Think a moment of why this should be so. Is there ever a
T2:10.16 state would make you rather listen to your ego as it prescribes  learning for certain circumstances that would be quickly put behind
T2:10.16 for specific outcomes. While many love to learn for the sake of  learning alone, still they would be loath to give up or let go the
T2:10.16 ability to choose their lessons. And still we are only talking about  learning as you have perceived of it rather than learning from life.
T2:10.16 only talking about learning as you have perceived of it rather than  learning from life.
T2:10.17 What difference does it make to your concepts of  learning when you think of life as your coursework? Would you be any
T2:10.18 you do not think of them as such you do not think of life as your  learning ground. You still think of lessons as being about specific
T2:10.19 choose a lesson plan, but to let life itself be your chosen way of  learning.
T2:11.8 and ideas are with you, until it is totally replaced by new  learning. Learning thus must complement your new beliefs, the
T2:11.8 ideas are with you, until it is totally replaced by new learning.  Learning thus must complement your new beliefs, the ultimate goal of
T2:11.8 thus must complement your new beliefs, the ultimate goal of this  learning being the end of the need for beliefs at all.
T2:11.9 This  learning, then, must be seen for what it is. It is the holiest of
T2:11.9 evidence of means and end being the same. Your devotion to this  learning must now be complete, your willingness total, your way of
T2:11.9 learning must now be complete, your willingness total, your way of  learning that of a mind and heart joined in wholeheartedness.
T2:11.13 So let us now, for the sake of continued  learning, speak of separation in a new way. Let us speak of
T2:11.17 identity you have learned since birth until you replace it with new  learning. While you have learned much here, you may be thinking that
T2:11.17 the very miracle you have been prepared for within this course of  learning.
T2:12.2 love. Your readiness for miracles has been achieved through the  learning you have accomplished. Miracles cannot be used, and so your
T2:12.2 learning you have accomplished. Miracles cannot be used, and so your  learning needed to include an ability to distinguish between service
T2:12.6 As with the  learning goal being set here of going beyond belief to simply
T2:12.6 goal being set here of going beyond belief to simply knowing, the  learning goal in relation to the miracle is the same—it is one of
T2:12.7 you have come to see calling as a gift and a treasure as well as a  learning device, so you must come to see your own ability to call
T3:1.7 but the result of the change in cause that has occurred through your  learning of this Course.
T3:3.9 While your recognition of your Self has come a long way through your  learning of this Course, your self is still seen as a stumbling
T3:3.9 personality, and simply declare yourself unsuitable for further  learning. Whether you think such thoughts consciously or not, there
T3:5.2 As with the gentle  learning of this Course, not all emptiness has come to you at the
T3:6.4 is not a God of vengeance but that you are still in the process of  learning that your Self is not vengeful. The ego has given you many
T3:9.2 they will not take time, as did the ego’s ideas, to spread through  learning.
T3:9.3 starting with the smallest building blocks of knowledge, as if  learning a new alphabet. Yet you soon will find that this new reality
T3:9.3 will find that this new reality is known to you and requires no new  learning at all. You will be tempted, at first, to see things that
T3:10.7 Truth? Being cognizant of this is the only way that the simultaneous  learning and unlearning that was spoken of earlier will be able to be

T3:13.4 accomplished. The new learning that lies ahead of you now is simply  learning in accordance with the new thought system of the truth;
T3:14.5 still would not be other than who you are. What this means to the  learning stage you are at now is that you but think you are
T3:15.13 simply concerned with assisting you to live what you have learned.  Learning was needed in order to return you to your Self. Despite
T3:15.13 what you have learned, what this Course did was bypass the way of  learning of the ego and call upon the Christ in you to learn anew.
T3:15.13 of the ego and call upon the Christ in you to learn anew. That  learning put an end to the old. Living what you have learned will
T3:17.4 been said before, time is a measurement of the “time” it takes for  learning to occur. A new experience was chosen—the experience of
T3:17.4 as the new beginning you are now called to. It required the  learning of a new thought system, the thought system of the physical,
T3:17.4 well as many other creation stories, but tell of a “mistake” in the  learning of a thought system of physicality, a mistake that became a
T3:17.5 of unlearning or forgetting of the truth that has led, through the  learning of untruth in the mechanism of time, to the world in which
T3:17.5 cannot learn the true, your true Self had to be appealed to for this  learning to take place.
T3:18.3 an observable form. It is thus from observable form that the final  learning will take place. This is the perfect example of using what
T3:19.2 be true when the physical is now called upon to serve the greatest  learning humankind has ever known?
T3:20.2 there is sense to be made from these concepts in regards to the  learning of the truth. As this is all that time is for, and all that
T3:20.2 and all that time is but a measurement of, it rightly follows that  learning can take place at a slow pace or a fast pace. There is no
T3:20.2 place at a slow pace or a fast pace. There is no more or less to  learning in terms of knowing the truth that you have always known,
T3:20.3 with you and thus what you strive for in effectiveness is your own  learning. Now, rather than learning the truth, you are learning how
T3:20.3 strive for in effectiveness is your own learning. Now, rather than  learning the truth, you are learning how to live by the truth. This
T3:20.3 is your own learning. Now, rather than learning the truth, you are  learning how to live by the truth. This will benefit you and in so

T3:20.4 you were asked to request a miracle as a learning device. This  learning device had two aspects. The first was to reveal to you your
T3:20.11 think as other than who you are in truth. This is how thorough your  learning must be. It is a learning that must not change to fit the
T3:20.11 are in truth. This is how thorough your learning must be. It is a  learning that must not change to fit the circumstances of illusion

T3:22.4 if you are unable to integrate two precepts of this course of  learning into your new reality. One is the often-repeated injunction
T4:1.7 easily choose not to learn. The nature of life, however, is one of  learning, and if they do not learn what is taught in school, they
T4:1.10 is not of the curriculum because they have chosen another means of  learning. Means is what is being spoken of here. But all means are
T4:1.10 end. All will learn the same content, for all are chosen; and all  learning, no matter what the means, will eventually lead them to the
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 would seem a likely
T4:1.17 This has also been restated as the difference between the time of  learning through contrast and the time of learning through
T4:1.17 between the time of learning through contrast and the time of  learning through observation. It is further stated here as the
T4:1.17 observation. It is further stated here as the difference between  learning by contrast and indirect communication and learning through
T4:1.17 between learning by contrast and indirect communication and  learning through observation and direction communication or
T4:1.19 came to know through similarly indirect means. This is the nature of  learning and of sharing in relationship. Means and end are one. Cause
T4:1.20 varying sets of beliefs that, in the way of the time—the way of  learning through contrast—provided contrast through dissent. The
T4:1.20 one believed became the evil that another fought and in the contrast  learning did occur and has continued to occur even unto this time.
T4:1.21 directly, you are also now to share directly. This is the way of  learning in relationship. Means and end are one. Cause and effect are
T4:1.22 impatience with the personal self, with acquiring all that your new  learning in science and technology but seemed to offer. It is what
T4:1.22 your fear, a fear that once prevented the direct and observable  learning that now is available to you.
T4:1.23 changed from the world of your ancestors despite the advances of  learning that have taken place, it is a different world. You have not
T4:1.27 to come to know themselves and God directly, and to pass on this  learning through direct means. What I am saying is that it is not
T4:1.27 to come to know themselves and God, and to continue to pass their  learning on indirectly, or through indirect communication and
T4:1.27 will become aware of the new state of consciousness and that  learning will pass through them directly through observation and
T4:2.15 you were a few years ago, and different now than when you began your  learning of this Course, you are not other than whom you have always
T4:2.15 there in all the years since then, and there before you began your  learning of this Course. Your awareness of the Self that you are now
T4:2.33 Christ-consciousness is already upon you. You are in the process of  learning what it means. This Treatise is here to help you do so.
T4:2.33 of learning what it means. This Treatise is here to help you do so.  Learning to see anew is the precursor of learning to create anew.
T4:2.33 is here to help you do so. Learning to see anew is the precursor of  learning to create anew. Creating anew is the precursor of the coming
T4:7.3 Those of you who have acquired Christ-consciousness and are now  learning the vision of Christ-consciousness must realize the many
T4:7.6 Your mind, heart, and body have joined in alignment to bring this  learning about. They now exist in harmony. Your mind and heart in
T4:7.7 You will realize that what is is optimal to your  learning. But you will also realize that an end to your learning is
T4:7.7 to your learning. But you will also realize that an end to your  learning is in sight. Christ-consciousness and the ability to know
T4:7.7 it has reached a state of sustainability in you, ends your need for  learning and thus ends the conditions of learning. In other words,
T4:7.7 in you, ends your need for learning and thus ends the conditions of  learning. In other words, being in harmony with poor health and
T4:7.7 of learning. In other words, being in harmony with poor health and  learning the lesson that it has come to impart to you, will return
T4:7.7 of Christ-consciousness. The same is true of all conditions of all  learning everywhere. The conditions are perfect for optimal learning.
T4:7.7 of all learning everywhere. The conditions are perfect for optimal  learning. This is the nature of the universe. These conditions are
T4:7.7 the universe. These conditions are perfect not only for individual  learning, but for shared learning, learning in community and learning
T4:7.7 are perfect not only for individual learning, but for shared  learning, learning in community and learning as a species.
T4:7.7 perfect not only for individual learning, but for shared learning,  learning in community and learning as a species.
T4:7.7 learning, but for shared learning, learning in community and  learning as a species.
T4:7.8 But let me again emphasize that the conditions of  learning will be no longer needed once learning has occurred. The
T4:7.8 that the conditions of learning will be no longer needed once  learning has occurred. The student no longer needs to attend school
T4:7.8 an educated choice, an enlightened choice, a free choice due to the  learning that has already occurred, the choice will be one guided by
T4:7.9 But the choice many of you will make—the choice to move from  learning to creating—will create a new world.
T4:8.7 upon what you could “do” with the human body, you can imagine the  learning process that ensued. If your reality had been like unto the
T4:8.7 things were loving acts within a loving universe, a love-filled  learning process. A learning process that was as known to you and
T4:8.7 acts within a loving universe, a love-filled learning process. A  learning process that was as known to you and chosen by you as it was
T4:8.9 creation is perfect. Your mind, being of God, was constrained by the  learning limits of the body and chose to rebel against the learning
T4:8.9 by the learning limits of the body and chose to rebel against the  learning that was needed in order to come into the time of fullness
T4:8.9 express itself in form, never realizing that this just delayed the  learning that had to occur to release you from the limits you
T4:8.16 to know about this one thing. This was the ego’s answer to being a  learning being—choosing something to learn that it could master.
T4:8.16 it could master. Yet all that this was, was a desire to be done with  learning, which is a true desire consistent with your true nature and
T4:8.16 everything there is to know about even one subject, and to call that  learning complete, is an error. If you rethink this definition you
T4:8.16 you rethink this definition you will see that even in regards to the  learning of one subject it is not the truth. The only instance in
T4:8.16 truth. The only instance in which this is the truth is in regards to  learning who you are.
T4:8.17  Learning, dear brothers and sisters, does come to an end, and that
T4:8.17 to an end, and that end is fast approaching. Coming to know through  learning will be of the past as soon as Christ-consciousness is
T4:8.17 begin to come to know through constant revelation of what is. True  learning has had only one purpose—the purpose of returning you to
T4:8.17 of returning you to awareness of your true identity. Be done with  learning now as you accept who you truly are.
T4:9.1  Learning is not meant to last. This is why even this coursework comes
T4:9.1 to an end. It comes to an end here and now as we move past study and  learning to observation, vision, and revelation.
T4:9.2 this coursework must also eventually come to an end. For this end to  learning is the goal toward which we now work.
T4:9.3 You have realized that all of your  learning and studying has taken you as far as you can go. You
T4:9.3 and been enthralled by those who have synthesized all of the great  learning that has gone on so that they can tell you where it is that
T4:9.5 You have felt this time coming. You have realized that your  learning has reached an end point. The excitement of new learning is
T4:9.5 that your learning has reached an end point. The excitement of new  learning is not lasting because it is not new. You have begun to see
T4:9.5 that you have reached in your understanding of the truth. All the  learning that you have done seems to leave you ready to change and
T4:9.5 but certainly not able to realize the transformation that your  learning has seemed to promise.
T4:9.7 Realize that the self-centeredness of the final stage of your  learning has been necessary. Only by centering your study upon
T4:9.9 be beacons now to the new. You who have gained so much through your  learning and your study and your sharing of the same may find it
T4:9.9 it difficult to leave it behind. A choice made by you to stay with  learning rather than to move beyond it would be an understandable
T4:9.9 in this next phase of the journey, the journey out of the time of  learning that will usher in the fullness of time.
T4:10.2 you to imagine because as you consider your willingness to give up  learning you will meet resistance and realize, for perhaps the first
T4:10.2 will meet resistance and realize, for perhaps the first time, that  learning is what your entire life has been about. You cannot imagine
T4:10.2 anything new, or be anything beyond that which you now are, without  learning. Your thoughts might stray to ideas about experiencing,
T4:10.2 and yet you will quickly see that you merely think of experience as  learning through a different means than studying.
T4:10.3 As you have advanced along your self-centered path of  learning, you have come to see everything in your life as exactly
T4:10.3 see everything in your life as exactly what it has been—a means of  learning. You have encountered problems and wondered what lessons
T4:10.3 come to teach you. You have encountered illness and wondered what  learning the illness has come to bring you. You have learned anew
T4:10.4 as teachers. It is here that you can begin to learn to let go of  learning because it is here that learning has been least practiced
T4:10.4 you can begin to learn to let go of learning because it is here that  learning has been least practiced through the means of studying.
T4:10.6 The outcome of  learning or what is studied is the production of things and perceived
T4:10.7 What we work toward now is to advance from  learning and producing things and perceived meaning, to producing
T4:10.8 The  learning that was applied to anything other than the Self could not
T4:10.8 Means and end are one, cause and effect the same. Thus this applied  learning produced things and perceived meaning.
T4:10.9 The  learning you have accomplished in regards to your Self could not help
T4:10.9 and end are one, cause and effect the same. Thus this accomplished  learning produced unity and relationship through unity and
T4:10.10 The first accomplishment of your  learning about your Self was the return of unity and relationship to
T4:10.11  Learning has had to do with what is perceived. No longer learning has
T4:10.11 Learning has had to do with what is perceived. No longer  learning has to do with what is revealed. Learning has had to do with
T4:10.11 is perceived. No longer learning has to do with what is revealed.  Learning has had to do with what is unknown. No longer learning has
T4:10.11 is revealed. Learning has had to do with what is unknown. No longer  learning has to do with what is and can only be known through
T4:10.11 has to do with what is and can only be known through revelation.  Learning has had to do with supplying a lack. No longer learning has
T4:10.11 revelation. Learning has had to do with supplying a lack. No longer  learning has to do with the realization that there is no lack.
T4:10.11 learning has to do with the realization that there is no lack.  Learning was what was necessary in order to allow you to fulfill the
T4:10.11 desired experience of expressing the Self of love in form. No longer  learning is the revelation that the time of accomplishment is upon
T4:10.11 of the Self of love in form is what you are now ready to do.  Learning was what was necessary in order to know who you are and how
T4:10.11 order to know who you are and how to express who you are. No longer  learning, or being accomplished, is synonymous with knowing who you
T4:10.12 of love is the natural state of being of those who have moved beyond  learning to creating through unity and relationship.
T4:10.13 I said earlier, some will not be willing to move out of the time of  learning. Those who have learned what this Course would teach but do
T4:10.13 what this Course would teach but do not move beyond the state of  learning will change the world. They will make the world a better
T4:10.13 advance beyond what they can teach and to the state of leaving  learning behind.
T4:10.14 Those of you willing to leave  learning behind will create the new. This will not happen through
T4:10.14 learning behind will create the new. This will not happen through  learning but through sharing. You can learn to change the world, but
T4:10.14 the future but an extension of the past. You who are called to leave  learning behind are called to return to your union and relationship
T4:11.2 The future depends on you who are willing to leave  learning behind and who are willing to accept your new roles as
T4:11.4 our new means of communicating and creating, a sharing that replaces  learning with what is beyond learning. I conclude this Treatise by
T4:11.4 and creating, a sharing that replaces learning with what is beyond  learning. I conclude this Treatise by sharing that which will assist
T4:12.5 of enormous proportions are upon you. The first is the end of  learning, the ramifications of which will only slowly occur to your
T4:12.7 are not the acts of an intermediary and why they represent direct  learning.
T4:12.8 All conditions that were intermediary in nature during the time of  learning, are, during the time of sharing, naturally converted to
T4:12.9 will now elicit direct experiences of sharing. If you have enjoyed  learning through gatherings of students, gather still, and experience
T4:12.10 All you must remember now is that the time of  learning is past. While you are still encountering concerns and
T4:12.10 questions, you will be prone to continue to think of yourself as a  learning being. While these dialogues continue to address these same
T4:12.10 capacity to express who you are. As long as you continue to invite  learning, you will continue to invite the conditions of learning.
T4:12.10 to invite learning, you will continue to invite the conditions of  learning. These are the conditions you have experienced throughout
T4:12.10 vigilant of your thought patterns so that you eradicate the idea of  learning in separation and replace it with the idea of sharing in
T4:12.10 in separation and replace it with the idea of sharing in unity.  Learning is a condition of the separated self, which is why it is no
T4:12.12 he saw the dawning of his contentment as the sign that one period of  learning was over and that it was time to move on to the next. During
T4:12.12 over and that it was time to move on to the next. During the time of  learning, this statement was consistent with learned wisdom. During
T4:12.12 wisdom. During the new time of sharing, there is no “next phase” of  learning for you to move on to. There is no reason for you not to
T4:12.13 you see that your idea of growth was synonymous with your idea of  learning? That you were always both awaiting and dreading your next
T4:12.13 learning? That you were always both awaiting and dreading your next  learning challenge?
T4:12.14 Why was this so? You eagerly awaited each  learning challenge in the hopes that it would bring you to the state
T4:12.14 bring you to the state in which you now abide! You dreaded each  learning challenge because you feared that it would not bring you to
T4:12.14 to need to learn, and to perhaps suffer from, the conditions of  learning!
T4:12.19 you will occasionally have setbacks and choose the conditions of  learning instead of sharing in unity in order to realize some bit of
T4:12.20 when it arises. The self-centeredness of the final stage of  learning is over.
T4:12.21 patterns of old were patterns designed for the optimal benefit of  learning. These patterns were created by the one mind and heart that
T4:12.21 were once the co-creator of the pattern of consciousness that was  learning.
T4:12.24 sharing in unity and relationship. There is no pattern within it for  learning (which is individual), for individual gain, or for
T4:12.25 was possible to achieve as an individual. The purpose of individual  learning was the return of unity! Pause a moment here, and celebrate
T4:12.25 personal self, through the self-centeredness of the final stages of  learning, has achieved the ultimate achievement possible! Let
T4:12.25 the ultimate achievement possible! Let yourself be grateful for the  learning you have achieved. Celebrate this graduation, this
T4:12.27 of when we talk of patterns. There was a pattern to the process of  learning that was shared by all learners and inherent to your
T4:12.27 was the same. There was an overall design that ensured optimal  learning and that design was known to you in the pattern of that
T4:12.28 or singular consciousness that was appropriate to the time of  learning does not continue. Thus the new pattern is one of creation
T4:12.28 new pattern is one of creation in relationship and unity rather than  learning. What this means will be revealed to you and shared by all
T4:12.29 from choosing separation. You do have to refrain from choosing  learning and the conditions of learning.
T4:12.29 You do have to refrain from choosing learning and the conditions of  learning.
T4:12.31 is. This will help you to adapt to the revelations that replace  learning. This will help you to adapt to the truth of a sharing you
D:1.4 not been convinced that you are done preparing as you are done with  learning. You still want to figure out what to do, what comes next,
D:1.15 cannot be taught what unity would freely give. The goal is no longer  learning. The goal is accepting the identity that has always been
D:1.17 This cannot be done through  learning, for as you have been told, learning was the means of the
D:1.17 This cannot be done through learning, for as you have been told,  learning was the means of the separated self’s return to unity. These
D:1.17 again. They can be used as continuing lessons until you feel that  learning is fully accomplished. They can serve as reminders as you
D:1.17 to become the Self you have learned that you are. But further  learning is not what will complete the transformation of the personal
D:1.17 the transformation of the personal self to the elevated Self.  Learning will not sustain Christ-consciousness.
D:1.21 begin with prayer to remind you of what you have learned in unity, a  learning that has been different from all learning you but thought
D:1.21 have learned in unity, a learning that has been different from all  learning you but thought you accomplished as a separated self. You
D:1.21 to be truly learned, you first had to enter a state in which this  learning could occur, a state that could not be taught but only
D:1.22 heart in unity have returned to a natural state of knowing in which  learning is no longer needed. You have now come upon a curriculum
D:1.22 of you still feel what you would describe as a need for continued  learning and a continuing relationship with a teacher who will guide
D:1.26  Learning accepts that there are those separate from you who know
D:1.26 of unity that could not be taught, but was the condition for  learning, acceptance of your true identity cannot be taught but is
D:1.26 condition necessary for being who you are and the realization that  learning is no longer necessary.
D:2.1 is being continued here, the work of replacing the old patterns of  learning with the new pattern of acceptance.
D:2.4 are both learned systems and systems of design. The pattern of  learning was a pattern of divine design, created in unity and
D:2.5 to feel a need to learn rather than realizing that the time of  learning has come to an end, would be to not realize completion.
D:2.6 could at times be acceptable and even appropriate. In regard to the  learning that you have now completed, learning that has revealed the
D:2.6 appropriate. In regard to the learning that you have now completed,  learning that has revealed the true nature of who you are, your
D:2.7 the truth. To learn the truth and not accept it is different from  learning what is necessary for a career. To learn the truth and not
D:2.7 is insane. To learn the truth and not accept the completion of your  learning is insane.
D:2.9 the old so that the new can serve you. We speak of denying modes of  learning in favor of simple acceptance of what is.
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
D:2.15 they may not have seemed so, all patterns have had to do with  learning because you were, as a separated self, a being whose only
D:2.15 you were, as a separated self, a being whose only function was  learning. The function of all learning was to return you to your true
D:2.15 self, a being whose only function was learning. The function of all  learning was to return you to your true identity. Because we are
D:2.19 the nature of who you are through external means—the means of  learning the nature of the world around you. Thus, in the example of
D:2.19 and then to develop a pattern based on what was learned so that  learning would not need to be endlessly repeated. Now these systems
D:2.19 Now these systems and patterns have become so entrenched that no new  learning is seen as possible or desirable even though the systems and
D:2.19 the systems and patterns are known not to work. In truth, no new  learning or new systems based on the learning patterns of old will
D:2.19 not to work. In truth, no new learning or new systems based on the  learning patterns of old will work. Thus we begin anew.
D:3.5 to mend the rift of duality, a state that was necessary for the  learning of the separated self but that is no longer necessary. The
D:3.6 sickness and health, life and death. In this time of Christ, such  learning is no longer necessary, and so these conditions of learning
D:3.6 such learning is no longer necessary, and so these conditions of  learning are no longer necessary. Thus one of your first acts of
D:3.6 acts of acceptance is the acceptance of the end of the conditions of  learning. This does not mean, however, that you accept goodness and
D:3.7 all the various aspects of life that were needed in the time of  learning. This is why we began quite truthfully and simply with an
D:3.17 as teacher and yourself as student. While you think of yourself as a  learning being you will still be looking to something or someone
D:3.20 Can this be said of any of the systems you have developed as a  learning being? Are your systems life-giving and life-supporting? The
D:3.21 form it is simply a shared quality of oneness. It is not in need of  learning or even understanding. It is. Awareness of what is, is a
D:4.2 also are not different. The differences you saw during the time of  learning, differences that made you feel as if each being stood
D:4.9 to externalize the patterns contained within. Patterns are both of  learning and of design.
D:4.11 that you have either seen and learned enough during your time as a  learning being that you accept that a divine design created the
D:4.12 created the internal world. The internal divine pattern was that of  learning.
D:4.13 together to create a pattern of acceptance to replace the pattern of  learning.
D:4.15 were part of the divine pattern. Contrast is one such system. As a  learning being, you accepted that you learned through contrast,
D:4.15 through contrast, knowing that contrast was provided for your  learning. It was upon the foundation of this and other thought
D:4.16 even for the divinely inspired thought systems to provide the  learning they were designed to impart. Such is the case with the
D:4.16 they were designed to impart. Such is the case with the system of  learning through contrast, since when the ego entered with its false
D:4.16 self took you, the true Self and the true learner, out of the  learning loop. Obviously these systems, built as they were upon
D:4.18 existence, is now recreating the patterns that served the time of  learning. What was learned in the instant in which you came to know
D:4.18 in the instant in which you came to know your Self is all that  learning was for. Let us not dwell any longer on why this has taken
D:4.18 taken so long or on the suffering that occurred during the time of  learning. This would be like dwelling on the inmate’s life as an
D:4.24 own internal authority be your first “act” of acceptance rather than  learning. Turn to this as the new pattern and to the thought system
D:4.28 to what is, to what is left now that the patterns and systems of  learning are no longer.
D:5.5 illustrates how one aspect of what was created in the pattern of  learning, while not being seen in the way it was intended, still
D:5.11 All was given to you to remind you of who you are in the time of  learning that is now passing away. Thus all was given to you to
D:5.12 Love and the loving patterns given in the time of  learning are all that exist in all you see. But what now will become
D:5.12 now will become of these patterns that are no longer needed as your  learning and that of those around you comes to an end? What was
D:5.12 around you comes to an end? What was created to serve the time of  learning, to represent what is and aid you in your return to what is,
D:5.13 a tool to help you do so. This would assume that you are still a  learning being and have need of such help. You are no longer a
D:5.13 a learning being and have need of such help. You are no longer a  learning being and need not this assistance.
D:5.14 In this time of Christ, we are not called to recreate the “tools” of  learning but to allow all that was created to show the way back to
D:5.21 inconsistent with your being. You will wonder how, if you are done  learning, the patterns of learning will change to help you embrace
D:5.21 You will wonder how, if you are done learning, the patterns of  learning will change to help you embrace the acceptance of this new
D:6.1 restated many times so that you would not forget the purpose of the  learning you were participating in. Eventually your learning reached
D:6.1 purpose of the learning you were participating in. Eventually your  learning reached an end point as the learning goal of this Course was
D:6.1 in. Eventually your learning reached an end point as the  learning goal of this Course was met, and this you were told as well.
D:6.2 comparison, a method that will be used less and less as the time of  learning passes. The thought reversal of which we recently spoke is
D:6.2 which we recently spoke is why I bring this up. During your time of  learning, I used a method of comparison—I compared the real to the
D:6.2 of you the repetition of the properties of the false that aided your  learning may now work as a detriment to your acceptance as you cling
D:6.2 let them go in order to embrace true representation. In the time of  learning, you were so entrenched in your false beliefs that their

D:6.5 it as such assisted us in bringing about the end of the time of  learning. But now your body—your form—must be seen in a new way.
D:6.13 has been a false certainty, it served a great purpose in the time of  learning. Discovery has been a grand facilitator of the human
D:6.21 you are now called to accept that you no longer need this type of  learning device and to realize that it will no longer serve you.
D:6.22 the “laws” of the body, the laws you gave the body in the time of  learning, knowing not what the design of the body represented? What
D:6.24 We have talked of but one replacement for the pattern of  learning—the pattern of acceptance. What might the body be called
D:6.24 of Christ. You have replaced the personal self, the self of  learning, with the true Self. You have accepted your true identity.
D:6.25 The body was, in the time of  learning, representative of a learning being. The ego, however,
D:6.25 The body was, in the time of learning, representative of a  learning being. The ego, however, narrowed your ideas of what the
D:6.25 being, but you increased not its capacity for true living or true  learning. And with the extended life span came extended reasons for
D:6.28 time go together. Yet you have been told time is a measurement of  learning. If you are no longer a learning being, for what is time
D:6.28 been told time is a measurement of learning. If you are no longer a  learning being, for what is time needed? Time is needed now only for
D:6.28 Time is needed now only for the transformation of the self from a  learning being to a being that can accept the shared consciousness of
D:7.2 This language was used because you were still, at that time, a  learning being. Now we will adjust our language somewhat to represent
D:7.2 what was said earlier as “What you discover in unity is shared.”  Learning does not occur in unity, but discovery is an ongoing aspect
D:7.3 You were also told within this Course that because you were  learning in separation, unity had to be experienced individually
D:7.3 in separation, unity had to be experienced individually before  learning could be shared at another level, and that levels are a
D:7.4 of form take place in time because experience, too, was designed for  learning. Now experience is needed in time to aid your total
D:7.4 must answer the call to let revelation and discovery, rather than  learning, be what you gain from experience.
D:7.9 aware of all that you are. The body, rather than aiding you in  learning as it once did, will aid you now in this discovery.
D:7.23 old that needs to be left behind. It is a provision of the time of  learning that allows the learning being to learn at his or her own
D:7.23 behind. It is a provision of the time of learning that allows the  learning being to learn at his or her own pace and to pass this
D:7.23 the learning being to learn at his or her own pace and to pass this  learning on in time.
D:8.2 Imagine this first as a place where no  learning is needed. Ah, you might say now, this you have heard
D:8.2 too “good” to be true. You are too used to thinking of yourself as a  learning being to truly experience the freedom of not being bound by
D:8.2 your life, you can think of no ability you have not achieved through  learning. And yet most of you have “discovered” something that comes
D:8.3 ability or talent that existed in some form prior to the time of  learning. We concentrate on this idea merely as an idea and not in
D:8.3 you have experienced something that existed prior to the time of  learning. And that this something was quite wonderful.
D:8.4 You might think of this ability that existed prior to the time of  learning as coming from the content of the wider circle of who you
D:9.4 sought. Even now, when you have learned all that you are in need of  learning, the pattern, even of your wholeheartedness, remains one of
D:9.5 Thought is a practice and a pattern of the separated and thus  learning self. When it was said within this Course that you are an
D:9.5 accurate and truthful way of expressing what was true for you as a  learning being.
D:9.8 work. The aims we clearly embraced together when you were still a  learning being were meant to allow you to come to know your true
D:9.10 self. Thus the Treatises were not inconsistent with our aims here.  Learning always has as its goal leading the learner beyond learning.
D:9.10 here. Learning always has as its goal leading the learner beyond  learning. With “A Treatise on the New” we established what lies
D:9.10 With “A Treatise on the New” we established what lies beyond  learning. Now, as we embrace the new together, it must be realized
D:9.12 abilities you discovered existed within you prior to the time of  learning, ideas are also discoveries that you make, discoveries that
D:9.12 also discoveries that you make, discoveries that exist apart from  learning. Ideas “come to you.” They are given and received. They are
D:9.12 and pleasing in nature. You may think that they are the result of  learning, of thoughts you have contemplated and struggled with. You
D:9.12 and struggled with. You may think that all of your previous  learning and thinking merely resulted eventually in a new idea being
D:10.1 knowing that come to you, and through you, outside of the pattern of  learning.
D:10.2  Learning is about the transfer of knowledge that was gained in the
D:10.2 is about the transfer of knowledge that was gained in the time of  learning, through the process of learning. Notice the inability of
D:10.2 that was gained in the time of learning, through the process of  learning. Notice the inability of teaching or learning to call forth
D:10.2 through the process of learning. Notice the inability of teaching or  learning to call forth talents, ideas, imagination, inspiration,
D:10.2 intuition, vision, or calling. You may believe that teaching and  learning appropriately work with and enable the use of abilities such
D:10.3 expression in much the same ways that the effort of teaching and  learning limits them. It is your joyous acceptance of the already
D:10.7 of your true way of knowing, a way that existed prior to the time of  learning and that has always existed. When put into practice and
D:10.7 When put into practice and allowed to replace the pattern of  learning, this way of discovery will be a constant coming to know of

D:15.1 are like unto the patterns that were created for your time of  learning and that will be applied anew to the creation of new
D:15.21 Let this idea enter you now. You have left behind the conditions of  learning. Why? Because they are no longer needed. The time of
D:15.21 of learning. Why? Because they are no longer needed. The time of  learning has ended. When this time of becoming has ended, the
D:15.21 be as big a step as was the step that left behind the conditions of  learning, a step from which you at times feel as if you are still
D:15.23 What you gain here you gain from what is beyond effort and beyond  learning, and from the maintenance of the state in which you reject
D:15.23 the maintenance of the state in which you reject the conditions of  learning. You maintain here, in short, all of the conditions

D:16.12 to go. You have often thought that even though you may be done with  learning, you don’t feel quite complete, or possibly even feel as if
D:16.12 learning, you don’t feel quite complete, or possibly even feel as if  learning has not quite been accomplished in you. This is precisely
D:16.14 in what you know. You realize fully that you are no longer a  learning being and that you have no need for teachers or for guidance
D:16.15 becoming is to realize that an in-between exists between the time of  learning and the time of being the elevated Self of form; that times
D:16.16 your former ideas about yourself, all of the patterns of the time of  learning, all of the moments in which you feel an inability to join
D:16.21 images, and when you retain them you do not allow for the time of  learning to be replaced with the only replacement that will sustain
D:16.21 that will sustain Christ-consciousness, the replacement of  learning with sharing in unity and relationship.
D:17.14 conceive of a time in which desire will no longer serve you, just as  learning now no longer serves you? If you reach a state of full
D:17.24 heartaches are experienced along the way. All the experiences and  learning occur on the journey.
D:Day1.14 Have 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
D:Day3.2 What was it that was “taught” to in the time of  learning? It was the mind. Thus, your mind has been trained for

D:Day3.2 through them did you learn. You are beginning to see now that this  learning was not a choice but only the way you knew life to be. While
D:Day3.2 but only the way you knew life to be. While the freedom of childhood  learning might be seen as the way learning was meant to be, the time

D:Day3.2 be seen as the way learning was meant to be, the time of this pure  learning has grown shorter and shorter while the time of enforced
D:Day3.2 learning has grown shorter and shorter while the time of enforced  learning has grown more entrenched.
D:Day3.3 In the area of the body came another form of  learning about which you saw yourself as having little choice. When
D:Day3.3 but to listen? So the mind and body were both conditioned to have  learning thrust upon them. You long ago quit resisting most of this
D:Day3.3 learning thrust upon them. You long ago quit resisting most of this  learning and “accepted” it as the way things are. This kind of
D:Day3.4 and as a species, have been conditioned by thousands of years of  learning through the mind—learning in often painful ways—said
D:Day3.4 conditioned by thousands of years of learning through the mind—  learning in often painful ways—said “no” to learning through the
D:Day3.4 through the mind—learning in often painful ways—said “no” to  learning through the heart. Many of you will admit to growing a bit
D:Day3.4 its challenge to your ideas regarding love. Most of you approached  learning through the heart with even more openness than you did new
D:Day3.5 where anger seems to arise, anger is a product of the condition of  learning. It always was, but now this is being revealed to you not
D:Day3.6 is greeted with even more anger and more resistance in regard to  learning of all kinds—in other words both old learning as well as
D:Day3.6 in regard to learning of all kinds—in other words both old  learning as well as new—than love. This is the area that you call
D:Day3.7 to money or abundance. The area of money, or abundance, is where  learning fooled you and failed you the most.
D:Day3.12 ideas of lack, an idea you so thoroughly learned during the time of  learning that letting it go, even now, still torments you with worry
D:Day3.13 This is the basic fallacy that the time of  learning supported. The idea of “if this, then that.” The idea of
D:Day3.23 is the “reality” of your life because it was the reality of the  learning life. Even if you are one of those others consider lucky,
D:Day3.25 have learned that nothing is “given,” for what use would you have of  learning if such were not the case? In our dialogue, we have begun to
D:Day3.26 learn them within the teachings of A Course of Love. But beyond  learning is where we now stand. We now stand at the place of the
D:Day3.26 is where we now stand. We now stand at the place of the rejection of  learning—the rejection of all you learned.
D:Day3.28 The condition of want, like all conditions of  learning, ended with the end of learning. The condition of want was a
D:Day3.28 of want, like all conditions of learning, ended with the end of  learning. The condition of want was a learning device—not one of
D:Day3.28 ended with the end of learning. The condition of want was a  learning device—not one of divine design, but one of the thought
D:Day3.29 You think you could learn what is for you the most difficult type of  learning, be it philosophy, math, or foreign languages, before you
D:Day3.36  Learning is no longer the way for good reason. It exemplifies the
D:Day3.38 What you have “learned,” and since the time of  learning had revealed to you, is a new way, the way of direct
D:Day3.39 When I said earlier in this chapter that you are most comfortable  learning through the mind because of your familiarity with the
D:Day3.39 through the mind because of your familiarity with the pattern of  learning through the mind, you can perhaps see why these first
D:Day3.40 open to other means of accessing the wisdom you once sought through  learning, or through the mind, other means will open to you. You may
D:Day3.47 form. This would be like still seeing the mind as the only source of  learning, and learning as the only source of knowledge. What you have
D:Day3.47 be like still seeing the mind as the only source of learning, and  learning as the only source of knowledge. What you have begun to see
D:Day3.50 at the unseen benefits of what you have acquired from this  learning, of promises seemingly made and not kept. Where, you may
D:Day3.57 Can you begin to see acceptance as an active function, much as  learning was an active function? Acceptance is an active function. It
D:Day3.58 another trick of the mind, you will not see it as the replacement of  learning, and as such as an active state, a state in which you begin
D:Day3.58 active state, a state in which you begin to work with what is beyond  learning, a state in which you are in relationship with what is
D:Day3.58 a state in which you are in relationship with what is beyond  learning. It is in truth, a state in which you enter into an
D:Day3.59 accept that you no longer have to learn and accept the condition of  learning that is want.
D:Day4.1 attention to these areas most incorrectly influenced by the time of  learning. Remember here all the “arguments” that I needed to present
D:Day4.5 As we discussed in yesterday’s dialogue,  learning has not been a choice. Both as divine design and as a
D:Day4.5 as divine design and as a pattern of the thought system of the ego,  learning has been with you and within you. Although the divine design
D:Day4.5 with you and within you. Although the divine design of the time of  learning is being recreated, the ceaseless pattern of learning
D:Day4.5 of the time of learning is being recreated, the ceaseless pattern of  learning remains.
D:Day4.6 The divine design of  learning was a given and a natural part of you, much like breathing.
D:Day4.7  Learning was not meant to be linked with thinking. Again I’ll draw
D:Day4.7 to be linked with thinking. Again I’ll draw your attention to the  learning of childhood. Learning begins long before the onset of the
D:Day4.7 Again I’ll draw your attention to the learning of childhood.  Learning begins long before the onset of the time of language that
D:Day4.7 man and early childhood can thus be linked as examples of a kind of  learning that, despite evolution, has not left any of you. You all
D:Day4.8 Does this not sound odd, foreign to you? And yet this is the way  learning was designed to be. Learning was given as a natural means of
D:Day4.8 foreign to you? And yet this is the way learning was designed to be.  Learning was given as a natural means of access to all that was
D:Day4.8 through effort any more than breathing was designed to be effortful.  Learning was designed, like the intake of breath, to be taken in and
D:Day4.9 ability to learn is given to all in like measure. The conformity of  learning, however, is the product of an externalized system. That you
D:Day4.9 —the way that has been taught—think that you have succeeded in  learning, is the cause of the insanity of the world and of your anger
D:Day4.13 state free from want, a state free from suffering, a state free from  learning, a state free from death. To be told that such a place
D:Day4.15 of your perception, what we might call a world-view attained through  learning.
D:Day4.20 In the time of  learning, however, it was natural that my example life was seen as
D:Day4.27 knowing the truth of your existence, how could you be done with  learning? This was what learning was for. And learning is not the way
D:Day4.27 your existence, how could you be done with learning? This was what  learning was for. And learning is not the way to the access that you
D:Day4.27 could you be done with learning? This was what learning was for. And  learning is not the way to the access that you seek. As all that
D:Day4.30 Thinking, in this time beyond  learning, could be rightly seen as a constraint you but try to impose
D:Day4.30 on all that is natural. Your thinking, since it is a product of  learning, does nothing but attempt to learn or teach. These are the
D:Day4.31 and all the treasure that will come with the end of the time of  learning. You, on the other hand, are thinking, yearning, grasping
D:Day4.41 the first real choice of Christ-consciousness, of the time beyond  learning.
D:Day4.49 making this wholehearted choice, but you will read only to learn and  learning will not transform you. If you do not truly and
D:Day4.51 forward with you is fear, for fear is the cause of the state of  learning. You may have thought separation was the cause, but
D:Day4.51 again, which is why the time of fear, and along with it the time of  learning, can cease to be.
D:Day4.52 I have not so directly linked fear and the time of  learning before, but now you need to see their connection, for if you
D:Day4.53 of illusion that have disguised your fear, to move you beyond false  learning to the truth that only needs to be accepted. If you can move
D:Day4.55 your own homecoming. To leave behind the time of wandering, seeking,  learning. To leave behind fear for the embrace of the love and safety
D:Day5.19 This is because you are still entrenched in the pattern of  learning, as your earnest effort to leave effort behind implies.
D:Day5.19 that union cannot be learned, for if it could be, the time of  learning would be perpetuated rather than ended.
D:Day5.20 Remember that you are tired of  learning. You are tired here, after your climb. You simply want to
D:Day5.22 for it is the way of creation. Again, this is why the “effort” of  learning must cease.
D:Day5.23 or learn “how to” heal must be thwarted, for if not, the pattern of  learning will remain. This is why there have always seemed to be
D:Day5.23 to share, only that the means of sharing was not one of teaching or  learning.
D:Day5.24 will only, in this way, be seen as the new givens come to replace  learning.
D:Day5.25 access to unity. Focus does not mean thinking. Focus does not mean  learning. Remember the example of how your breathing becomes
D:Day6.1 becoming is to realize that an in-between exists between the time of  learning and the time of being the elevated Self of form. This is
D:Day6.19  Learning takes the student away from “normal” life and creates a
D:Day6.19 for the elevation of which we speak. There are no hallowed halls of  learning that will accomplish this. There is no mountain top in any
D:Day6.23 a position to be able to begin to perform with any certainty. Even  learning is accelerated by hands-on activities, by doing what one has
D:Day6.24 You have done your  learning and your teacher has stepped aside as a teacher and become a
D:Day6.32 seem never ending? It is until it is replaced by reverence, just as  learning was unending until it was replaced by acceptance. The
D:Day6.32 of this time of acceptance are not the conditions of the time of  learning, and so you will soon see that the difficulty of the time of
D:Day6.32 and so you will soon see that the difficulty of the time of  learning truly is behind you.
D:Day7.2 of yourself was the precondition that set the stage for the time of  learning. The time of learning would not have been needed had you not
D:Day7.2 that set the stage for the time of learning. The time of  learning would not have been needed had you not denied your Self.
D:Day7.5 You must realize here that the pattern of  learning is now all that is left that can be degenerating to you.
D:Day7.5 be degenerating to you. While you always were supported, the idea of  learning that you accepted during the time of learning was not one of
D:Day7.5 supported, the idea of learning that you accepted during the time of  learning was not one of support but one of effort. You must accept,
D:Day7.5 support but one of effort. You must accept, now, that the pattern of  learning is an extension of fear and be willing and vigilant in
D:Day7.8 new you. They exist in acceptance and union. They do not exist in  learning and separation. They exist in love. They do not exist in
D:Day7.9 that led the body to exhibit the conditions of fear in the time of  learning. Thus it is the mind’s acceptance of love that will lead the
D:Day7.13 is easy to see from here how the dominoes fall and each condition of  learning is replaced, always by a far gentler and more compassionate
D:Day7.16 of the time of acceptance, like the conditions of the time of  learning, will pass. There are no conditions in the state of union as
D:Day7.18 of the time of acceptance, like the conditions of the time of  learning, arise from within. Life has always existed within the
D:Day7.18 conditions of the time of acceptance. The conditions of the time of  learning were but imposed conditions that also arose from within.
D:Day7.19 heart, of the real Self from the ego-self, that created the need for  learning and the imposition, from within, of the conditions of the
D:Day7.19 and the imposition, from within, of the conditions of the time of  learning.
D:Day8.27 the bypassing of this “how to” function—a function of the time of  learning—that we are heading toward.
D:Day8.29 the new. This is thinking comprised of the time-delay of the time of  learning—of a time when you used your feelings, opinions, and
D:Day9.12 image, no matter how it was formed, is a product of the time of  learning. It became an image in your mind, and maybe even within your
D:Day9.12 your mind, and maybe even within your heart, through the process of  learning. It arose from the learning of right from wrong, good from
D:Day9.12 your heart, through the process of learning. It arose from the  learning of right from wrong, good from bad. It arose from the
D:Day9.12 the learning of right from wrong, good from bad. It arose from the  learning of moral and religious beliefs. It arose from comparison. It
D:Day9.13 This ideal image is intimately related with the time of  learning in another way as well. It is the epitome of learning, what
D:Day9.13 the time of learning in another way as well. It is the epitome of  learning, what you have seen learning as being for. While other
D:Day9.13 way as well. It is the epitome of learning, what you have seen  learning as being for. While other learning goals may have receded,
D:Day9.13 of learning, what you have seen learning as being for. While other  learning goals may have receded, this one seems a learning goal
D:Day9.13 for. While other learning goals may have receded, this one seems a  learning goal worthy of your effort. It seems to be a true goal
D:Day9.15 As with most goals of the time of  learning, it was an ego-centered goal, a carrot of fulfillment the
D:Day9.16 The idea of your “potential” was a useful  learning tool and one that served the purposes of the Holy Spirit as
D:Day9.16 yourself would have you be, was a necessary tool to call you to the  learning that would return you to your true identity. But the time
D:Day9.27 the beauty and truth of who you are has been taught out of you by  learning practices that sought for sameness, and saw not your
D:Day9.28 All of these  learning practices were the product of false images of the way things
D:Day9.32 simple realization that you do still desire, or think you desire,  learning challenges of this type and with the realization that this
D:Day9.32 of this type and with the realization that this is all these are—  learning challenges. You seek learning challenges now only because of
D:Day9.32 that this is all these are—learning challenges. You seek  learning challenges now only because of the consistency with which
D:Day9.32 which you did so in the past. In the past you moved quickly from one  learning challenge to another. You have just completed a monumental
D:Day9.32 learning challenge to another. You have just completed a monumental  learning challenge and so your natural pattern would be to keep going
D:Day9.32 pattern would be to keep going now, to use the momentum of this  learning success to achieve another.
D:Day10.5 Realize that in the time of  learning, you felt a need for your doubt just as you felt a need for
D:Day10.12 body is the “given” form and while it was the perfect vehicle for  learning in the time of learning, it is now being transformed into
D:Day10.12 and while it was the perfect vehicle for learning in the time of  learning, it is now being transformed into the perfect vehicle for
D:Day10.12 what has been in a new way, and as you all know from the time of  learning, it is often more difficult to become adept in doing
D:Day14.6 This is why, after  learning to disclaim all that you have called your “own,” you are now
D:Day17.4 dialogue, kept you examining, kept you attempting to move beyond  learning to a new means of knowing? Christ-consciousness. This is why
D:Day17.4 around you is all about. An approach to knowing, which was called  learning, was previously the predominant approach. As this approach
D:Day17.4 know what others had already learned and were capable of teaching,  learning began to fail the cause of knowing.
D:Day17.5 always been individuals who challenged the predominant patterns of  learning because of the strength of their connection to
D:Day17.9 those who would approach Christ-consciousness through teaching and  learning and leading example lives. Another way, that of Mary, was
D:Day18.3 As has been said, the time of teaching and  learning is over. If the way of Jesus was a way of acceptance,
D:Day18.3 is over. If the way of Jesus was a way of acceptance, teaching,  learning, and leading an example life, then the remaining ways of
D:Day20.2 reality—an ending within your conscious awareness. A true end of  learning.
D:Day21.2 This was true even within the pattern of  learning you have been so familiar with, for in order to learn, the
D:Day21.2 the wisdom, guidance or information moved. If it did not do so,  learning did not occur. In traditional learning patterns, the wisdom,
D:Day21.2 moved. If it did not do so, learning did not occur. In traditional  learning patterns, the wisdom, guidance, or information sought moved

D:Day21.6 to one that isn’t channeled to all. The old notions of teaching and  learning but made it seem as if some had more and others less. But
D:Day21.6 it seem as if some had more and others less. But even the pattern of  learning had as its outcome the sameness of teacher and learner—the
D:Day22.1 Yesterday we spoke of teachers being channels during the time of  learning. It was also noted that you realize that all of life is a
D:Day39.45 expect heaven. Do not expect answers, only knowing. Do not expect  learning, only revelation. Do not expect all, without also expecting
A.1 to do with the movement into the Time of Christ, a time of direct  learning in union and relationship with God. The word learning is
A.1 time of direct learning in union and relationship with God. The word  learning is loosely used here for no learning is needed in union and
A.1 relationship with God. The word learning is loosely used here for no  learning is needed in union and relationship.
A.2 Yet, as your work with A Course of Love begins,  learning and unlearning continue. It continues for the sole purpose
A.2 and unlearning continue. It continues for the sole purpose for which  learning has always existed—that of returning you from self-doubt
A.2 from your perceived state of separation to your true state of union.  Learning is needed only until perception is cured. The perception of

A.3 Perception is the result of learning. Perception is  learning.
A.4 not to apply your thought and your effort, your usual means of  learning, to this Course of Love. This Course is not for the mind but
A.4 Again I say to you, in the direct relationship achieved in union, no  learning is required. Until you have truly recognized unity, which

A.4 in A Course in Miracles. While you continue to put effort into  learning what cannot be learned, as you continue to see yourself as a

A.5 This is not to say that you will find this Course or the end of  learning to be easy. Yet it is your difficulty in giving up your

C:1.11 It is pervasive in the life of your physical form and in the  life of your mind. It is only your heart that does not consider this
C:1.14 to do so, no matter how futile, as being that which makes up your  life. To not engage is to not prove your own existence.
C:1.17 All the symbols of your physical  life reflect a deeper meaning that, while hidden to you, you still

C:2.7 life, for a life of joy is seen as nothing more than a daydream, a  life of pain a nightmare.
C:2.8 and few of you believe you will succeed. Others refuse to think of  life in terms of purpose and thereby condemn themselves to

C:4.18 In this you are correct, for love is nothing like your image of your  life and has no resemblance to how you spend your days or the way
C:4.18 setting apart gives love little relevance to other areas of your  life. Love is seen as personal, something another gives in a special

C:4.26 The world is but a reflection of your inner  life, the reality unseen and unprepared for by all your strategy and
C:5.16 which you stand, much like your inner world, is where you live the  life that makes the most sense. It is where your values are formed,
C:5.18 that you have to do, but that you do not want to do. The more your  life consists of such things, the smaller your reality becomes. All
C:5.22 admit that you cannot get there on your own. You thus have made of  life a test, believing that you can pass or fail through your own
C:5.23 All your efforts to be an individual are concentrated on the  life of your body. Your concentration on the life of your body is

C:5.24 This getting what you want that drives your  life is proven time and time again to not be what you want once you
C:5.24 you have not found happiness in what you seek! You continue living  life as a test, driving yourself to follow one accomplishment with
C:5.26 against. Why should you make this sacrifice? What then would your  life be for? You want so little really. How can you be asked to give
C:6.10 and the clouds that block the sun. Without all of these, what would  life be? Perpetual sunshine would be too easy, too lacking in
C:6.12 Eagerness for  life and eagerness for heaven are seen to be in opposition. Heaven
C:6.12 milieu of eternal peace is rightly kept, you think, for the end of  life, and so you scream at the unfairness when a young one leaves the
C:6.12 say. How unfair that those who die young have not had a chance at  life, a chance to face the struggle and the challenge, the coming of
C:6.13 you hold before yourself when grasped is quickly eaten and  life feeds on itself once again. Just as you eat to still your hunger
C:6.13 your hunger only to become hungry again, so does the rest of your  life need this constant maintenance to retain the reality you have
C:6.13 “Struggle to succeed and succeed to struggle yet another day” is the  life you have made, and the life you fear heaven would replace. To
C:6.13 to struggle yet another day” is the life you have made, and the  life you fear heaven would replace. To give up the idea that this is
C:6.14 as failure, and here is what you fear the most. To not succeed at  life would indeed be a failure if it were possible for it to be so.
C:6.15 other choice. A god of love was as foreign a concept to them as is a  life of peace to you. What is foreign to the world has changed, but
C:6.20 of them? And do you not still think of them as who they were in  life? What is the difference, in your mind, between who they were and
C:6.20 you would deny in favor of thoughts of death so grim they make of  life a nightmare.
C:6.21 It is your denial of all your happy thoughts that has led you to a  life of such unhappiness. Thoughts of terror and of sin you will
C:6.21 and of sin you will embrace, but thoughts of resurrection and new  life you still before they have a chance at birth and call them
C:6.21 All that you have wished for and have not acquired within your  life is the evidence you would use to deny yourself hope of any kind.
C:7.1 “I could have been where that person is if not for the unfairness of  life,” you wail. Your mind dwells in a world of its own made up
C:7.5 and of itself, for it is the primary thought by which you live your  life. Your effort goes into maintaining this illusion that what you
C:7.6 is the piece that screams never to that which would beat you down.  Life is seen as a constant taking away and this, you claim, will
C:7.9 the eternal will be upon you. Death will be a dream as the wind of  life reunited with itself gathers from directions that are beyond

C:7.14 to be right, or in control, or to have more or be more. This is  life based on comparison of illusion to illusion.
C:7.23 Do not turn your back on the hope offered here, and when new  life flows in to release the old, forget not from where it came.
C:8.6 you feel controlled by your feelings, emotions that seem to have a  life of their own, and a body that reacts to all of it in ways that
C:8.7 heart and buries stillness deep beneath an ever-changing milieu of  life lived on the surface, as if your own skin were the playground
C:9.19 fear. Age has not taken fear from any of you nor made your dream of  life any less of a nightmare. Yet you spare few moments of compassion
C:9.19 and one that you would try to tell yourself is not present in your  life. You look to others to feel compassion for, to those living in
C:9.20 way you have been able to see to bring relief to the nightmare of a  life of fear. You project fear outward and away from yourself, seeing
C:9.21 Think now of one of those you have identified as living the  life of fear you deny yourself. And imagine that you could bring this
C:9.23 what you do not want and try to replace it with its opposite. Your  life is thus spent in struggling against what you have for what you
C:9.23 need, and so make yourself continuously needy. You thus spend your  life trying to fulfill your needs. For most of you, this trying takes
C:9.23 you, this trying takes on the form of work and you spend your entire  life working to meet your needs and those of the ones you love. What
C:9.23 needs and those of the ones you love. What would you do with your  life if you had no needs to meet? What would you do with your life if
C:9.23 your life if you had no needs to meet? What would you do with your  life if you had no fear? These questions are the same.
C:9.25 of this insane idea’s validity. It is your proof as well that a  life of fear is warranted. How could you not fear for the safety of a
C:9.26 relationship your species itself would cease to be, in fact, all  life would end. Of course you must help your sister and brother, for
C:9.32 of use be one and the same? This insanity makes the purpose of your  life seem to be one of usefulness. The more your body can be of use
C:9.39 time here has not been in vain. You know that whatever else your  life seems to be for, if on your deathbed you have not found what you
C:9.39 in dark despair and fear. You will have no hope for what lies beyond  life, for you will have found no hope in life.
C:9.39 hope for what lies beyond life, for you will have found no hope in  life.
C:9.44 mistreatment. These, like the larger examples of your daily  life gone awry, are but demonstrations of internal desires taken to a
C:10.5 hurdle to overcome. As you observe the body and dare to think of  life without it, you again and again encounter its reality. When its
C:10.15 I am here to teach you once again because I was the example  life. Do you believe that when I walked the earth I was a body, or do
C:10.17 This observation will help to put the responsibility of your  life back into your hands, where it belongs. You are not helpless,
C:10.19 heavy-hearted rather than light-hearted and gay. Being serious about  life is a major strategy of the separated self, which recognizes its
C:11.2 or office walls. You did not create your Self, and yet you make of  life a recreation of yourself and in so doing try to prove that “you”
C:11.9 He then will judge you and determine if you should be rewarded for a  life of goodness or punished for a life of evil. He might accept you
C:11.9 if you should be rewarded for a life of goodness or punished for a  life of evil. He might accept you back, but He might not. A God such
C:11.10 that this was but God’s curse on you, a thing to tempt you to the  life of desperation that you live. But your strongest perception of
C:12.2 the same. How could this be the correct answer when this is so?  Life is too complicated to be solved by love.
C:12.10 the one contradiction that has created the world you see and the  life you live. Although it is impossible for something to have gone
C:12.18 You may very well say, however, that an idea seemed to take on a  life of its own and compel you to do things you might have never
C:12.19 an adventurous vacation when brought to fruition might reshape the  life of the one participating in it, it would not change who that
C:12.19 he was born into. All that would change would be the shape of his  life, the things that would happen within it, perhaps the places in
C:12.19 that would be part of it. In short, the external aspects of the  life.
C:12.20 From the idea of separation came the idea of an external aspect of  life. Before the idea of the separation, there was no such thing—
C:12.20 fear they would not exist, so too is it with the external aspect of  life. Without the original idea of separation, the external aspect of
C:12.20 Without the original idea of separation, the external aspect of  life would not exist. Just as fear is not real although it seems to

C:12.22 the idea of separation seemed to bring about a completely reshaped  life, a destiny different than that which had already been written.

C:14.11 without change as the major goal of your life. Without it,  life would not be worth living, and so it was necessary to retain it
C:14.20 must remain afraid of the great deceiver. Whether they call it  life or death, it is still the same. It is the chance that cannot be
C:14.23 purpose of giving you something to look forward to, a reward for a  life lived according to your own rules, a reward to be gained by some
C:14.31 make special? All that is lost is specialness. This is the view of  life you cannot imagine bringing about, or bringing joy in its
C:15.1 desire to give and receive specialness is the driving desire of your  life, and the world you see but reflects this desire. Love’s opposite

C:15.10 that will not leave behind your brothers and your sisters to a  life of suffering and of sin.
C:15.12 that knows neither specialness nor separation. In this choice lies  life eternal.
C:16.5  Life in prison and a body condemned to death is what judgment does to
C:16.15 miraculously work in the future. You have nothing but evidence of a  life of unhappiness and despair, where occasional moments of joy or
C:16.15 that you love out of the many that you do not are all that make your  life worth living. You think that to be asked to give up the caution,
C:16.15 people 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:16.24 give up your power to be who you are and think it is just the way  life is. You give away your power and then bow down to those whom you
C:16.25 good as you may want to be, you would still go meekly through your  life trying to comply with rules of God and man with thought of some
C:18.4 you have changed the nature of the universe and made it possible for  life to exist separately and alone with no relationship, no
C:18.8 chain and your Self among those who comprise it, and imagine the  life that you experience now taking place much like that you would
C:18.13 desire to know from which all ideas are born, in order to give it  life.
C:19.5 fiction to you, realize that you accept much in all areas of your  life, from that of religion to science itself, that sounds like
C:19.13 state. You must think in terms of “I” and “them,” “death and  life,” “good and evil.” This is thought. Thought occurs in words, and
C:19.15 not even my experience. If this were so, all of those who read of my  life and words would have learned what I learned from my experience.

C:20.10 From here your  life becomes imaginal, a dream that requires you not to leave your
C:20.12 the source of all beginnings, the kernel and the wholeness of all  life. The whole exists untroubled by what it will be. It is.
C:20.47 for your belief in your inability to effect change within your own  life and certainly within the greater life of the universe. You must
C:20.47 effect change within your own life and certainly within the greater  life of the universe. You must understand that when you think of your
C:20.47 universe. You must understand that when you think of your personal  life, personal concerns, personal relationships, you are separating
C:20.47 its scope. It is as if you have cordoned off a little section of  life and said, “These are the things that relate to my existence and
C:22.1 these functions are all prescribed to be for certain parts of your  life and for certain times that you deem appropriate. Please assure

C:25.9 This anger is re-enacted in thousands of different scenarios in your  life day after day and year after year until you realize and truly

C:25.18 many of the things you have been concerned about previously. Your  life may actually seem to have less purpose. You may begin to wonder
C:25.19 and habits that have occupied you, will not accompany you into your  life of love. These you will leave behind.
C:25.20 need will arise as you realize that you can take no credit for your  life. Wanting to take credit is of the ego, and at this stage the
C:25.24 is so. You will also soon realize why this time of engagement with  life is necessary. Experience is necessary to complete the cycle of
C:25.25 Being fully engaged with  life while taking the time for discernment is uncommon. Putting
C:25.25 stillness, activity before rest, is seen as synonymous with a full  life. We must, therefore, speak a bit of what a full life is.
C:25.25 with a full life. We must, therefore, speak a bit of what a full  life is.
C:26.1 It is often spoken of with some amazement that I lived a short  life, preached for only a small part of it, traveled not very far,
C:26.1 dies young. You each have some notion of what you believe a full  life to be. For some of you it would include marriage and children,
C:26.1 or financial security. Most of you will think of having a long  life.
C:26.3 Few recognize the tragedy in the  life of a person, except in instances of great dichotomy, perhaps
C:26.3 in instances of great dichotomy, perhaps best expressed in the  life of the tragic hero. This observance of tragedy in life occurs
C:26.3 in the life of the tragic hero. This observance of tragedy in  life occurs only when the observation is also made of the greatness,
C:26.3 the observation is also made of the greatness, the glory, in the  life. Without the recognition of the glory of life, there is no

C:26.7 described your purpose here. To have no meaning to attach to your  life is the tragedy you see within it and attempt to keep hidden from
C:26.7 the fall, for if you were to attempt to assign the meaning to your  life that you think it should have, a fall would surely await you, at
C:26.7 in your imaginings. You are thus caught in a double bind, living a  life you feel is devoid of meaning and letting fear keep you from
C:26.8 This is what we now leave behind as we seek to become involved with  life. I say we because I am with you and will not leave your side. I

C:26.9 as meaning is due you through no effort of your own. Scenes of your  life play through your mind that “prove” that you are neither
C:26.9 mind that “prove” that you are neither inherently happy, nor your  life inherently meaningful. Your reliance on these scenes and
C:26.11 not long stated that if you knew what would bring meaning to your  life you would surely do it? Have you not long wished to know your
C:26.12 is you have been doing? Have you not grown weary of what passes for  life in your world? Have you not wished you could throw out all the
C:26.18 you are ready for the next step, the step of being engaged with  life. The step of living from love. And I assure you, there is no
C:26.24 left but that you long for, believing that you know it not. Your  life here is much like a search for your story. Where will this
C:26.24 table of contents, or at least a brief outline. Where does your  life fit in the larger picture? And yet, you realize that—like
C:26.25 This viewing of your  life as a story is what you do. You spend each day in review or
C:26.25 knew your place in the pattern of creation from the outset. A full  life is quite simply a fulfillment of that thought and that pattern.
C:27.1 errors lie. For what quest can be fulfilled when the only answer to  life seems to be death? This is why and how my death and resurrection
C:27.7 your concerns about concentration on the self will end.  Life is not a matter of self versus other. Life is a matter of

C:27.7 not a matter of self versus other. Life is a matter of relationship.  Life is not a matter of human versus divine, but a matter of
C:27.7 but a matter of relationship between the human and the divine.  Life is not a matter of one living thing versus another, but of the
C:27.11 and you matter as an interactive part of the relationship that is  life. You are already accomplished as who you are. All is
C:27.21 You are ready now, and all that will you prevent you from living a  life of love is unwillingness to do so. There is only one remaining
C:29.1 is the meaning of which we speak when we ask for a commitment to  life that requires your attention. It is both a request for focus and

C:29.11 Many of you think of  life itself as toil. There is much you need to do just to stay alive,

C:32.1 form in which a teacher arrives. It can truly be said that all of  life is your teacher. There is not one aspect of it that is not
T1:2.20 elementary in relation to a sunset, its application to all areas of  life will at first seem quite demanding. But what is elementary
T1:3.1 to the re-experiencing of all that you believe has shaped your  life. These opportunities are but the forerunners of new learning.
T1:3.18 would have on the rest of the world. If you were to ask for a  life to be spared, how would you know it was not that person’s “time
T1:4.21 of memory. These are opportunities to re-experience the lessons your  life has brought you. You will experience the same lessons in the
T1:5.5 This fear of all and nothingness is fear of God, fear of  Life, fear of Creation, fear of Self. For there is only all and
T1:5.7 The whole of  life could in fact be seen as the illusion of an in-between you have
T1:6.3 choosing union. With this definition, you can see how your  life can become a prayer. This does not negate the fact that a prayer
T1:6.5 of which we speak nor one that can reasonably be called a way of  life or likened to the art of thought. Prayers such as these emanate
T1:8.2 buried. As who I Am, I resurrected. “I am the resurrection and the  life.” What I was in life was the manifestation, in form, of the Will
T1:8.2 I resurrected. “I am the resurrection and the life.” What I was in  life was the manifestation, in form, of the Will of God. Thus too
T1:8.2 of the Will of God. Thus too have you been. God is the giver of  life, thus life is God’s Will. But with my resurrection, which was
T1:8.2 Will of God. Thus too have you been. God is the giver of life, thus  life is God’s Will. But with my resurrection, which was accomplished
T1:8.2 with my resurrection, which was accomplished for all, the meaning of  life, the reality of life, changed, though you have known this not.
T1:8.2 which was accomplished for all, the meaning of life, the reality of  life, changed, though you have known this not. The great experiment
T1:8.2 though you have known this not. For the resurrection and  life are now one and the same.
T1:8.4 two thousand years without your comprehension of it. The nature of  life changed with the resurrection. I am the resurrection and the
T1:8.4 of life changed with the resurrection. I am the resurrection and the  life. So are you.
T1:8.5 suffer the separation. Even though the resurrection returned not  life to the form I once occupied, it returned me to you in the form

T1:9.5 Now you are asked to carry new  life not in the womb but in the united mind and heart.
T1:9.13 dormant for periods of time and then to suddenly be called back to  life through some event or situation? What was this event or
T1:10.6 may continue to read for a lifetime. You can continue to experience  life and still carry the Peace of God within you. As you live in
T2:1.6 This place is not  life but neither is it death, for even death is not an eternal
T2:1.6 It is not a resting place, a place to stop along the journey of  life any more than it is a place at which life stops and death
T2:1.6 stop along the journey of life any more than it is a place at which  life stops and death reigns. It is not a point at which you arrive,
T2:1.8 feel like a bubble of protection, something that sets you apart from  life and the chaos that seems to reign there. You must realize that
T2:3.1 Your  life is already an act of creation. It was created. All of it. It
T2:3.1 you. Your work here is to express it. You are far more than your  life here. You created your life here in union with the one mind and
T2:3.1 express it. You are far more than your life here. You created your  life here in union with the one mind and one heart, in union, in
T2:3.1 is reflected in the world you see. The only difference between the  life you are living and the life you want lies in your willingness to

T2:3.2 be no need for form if there had been no desire for expression.  Life is the desire to express outwardly what exists within. What I
T2:3.4 to see the changes that your learning is capable of bringing to your  life. You have felt the peace and love of the embrace. You know that
T2:3.4 and learning something that is of relevance even within the daily  life you currently move through. Now you must fully recognize the
T2:3.7 and on-going expansion of the same thought of love that brought  life into existence. The seeds of creation exist in everything and
T2:3.8 and on-going expansion of the same thought of love that brought  life into existence. Christ is your identity in the broadest sense
T2:4.1 all, the alpha and the omega, eternity and infinity. It is not only  life as you know it now, but life in all its aspects. It is life
T2:4.1 eternity and infinity. It is not only life as you know it now, but  life in all its aspects. It is life beyond death as well as life
T2:4.1 not only life as you know it now, but life in all its aspects. It is  life beyond death as well as life before birth and life during your
T2:4.1 now, but life in all its aspects. It is life beyond death as well as  life before birth and life during your time here. It is all one
T2:4.1 aspects. It is life beyond death as well as life before birth and  life during your time here. It is all one because it is all from the
T2:4.7 This applies directly to your reaction to all that occurs within your  life. Let us look now at your reaction to the idea put forth earlier
T2:4.12 tells you that if you had but acted earlier you would have had the  life you’ve dreamed of and maybe it is not too late. This is not
T2:4.13 you are is what you are called to do. You are here asked to live a  life as seamless as that of the birds of the air. You are asked to
T2:4.13 as seamless as that of the birds of the air. You are asked to live a  life where there is no division between who you are and what you do.
T2:4.19 come to think of as an ability. As your old way of responding to  life causes you to struggle or resist and the new way of thinking
T2:5.1 In order for you to more fully understand the  life that this Course calls you to, we must also talk of another
T2:7.2 your control, those who can influence the course of your day or your  life in ways you would not choose. Others represent the accidents
T2:7.7 most difficult belief of all to integrate into the living of your  life. Each time another thwarts you, you will be tempted to believe
T2:7.10 for change. Certainly there will continue to be things within your  life that are in need of change. As was stated in the beginning of
T2:9.4 indebted as you feel grateful for the meeting of needs. When your  life is running smoothly and needs are being continuously met, you
T2:9.7 are like puzzle pieces that fit together. Other beings that share  life with you on this planet are not concerned with needs or need
T2:10.14 ways. It is the voice of love, the voice of creation, the voice of  life. It is the voice of certainty that allows you to move through
T2:10.16 about learning as you have perceived of it rather than learning from  life.
T2:10.17 does it make to your concepts of learning when you think of  life as your coursework? Would you be any more willing to let another
T2:10.18 lessons? While you do not think of them as such you do not think of  life as your learning ground. You still think of lessons as being
T2:10.18 still think of lessons as being about specific subject matter. When  life does not go as you have planned, you feel as if your chosen path
T2:10.18 you. You often feel a sense of loss and rarely one of gain. Unless  life goes the way you have intended for it to go, you do not feel
T2:10.19 Christ in you needs not for you to choose a lesson plan, but to let  life itself be your chosen way of learning.
T2:11.1 you are a being who exists in relationship into the living of your  life.
T2:11.12 yourself the ego has put forth would have been a true image. But as  life cannot exist apart from relationship, this choice was not
T2:11.13 existence? While this illustration is not attempting to say that  life does not exist apart from the body, it is attempting to reveal,
T2:11.13 there is a condition under which you are here and able to experience  life as a separate being. That condition is relationship and
T2:12.12 all you are in relationship with, is how you are called to live your  life and the call you are asked to sound to all your brothers and
T2:13.6 here. Remember that the seriousness with which you once looked at  life is of the ego. Drape your persona in a mantle of peace and joy.
T3:1.6 You who have spent most of your  life representing the ego have but given a face to illusion and made
T3:1.12 help you fulfill. I can do this because I accomplished this, both in  life and in all time and time beyond time, making you, along with me,
T3:1.13 able to represent the truth and, in so doing, we bring the truth to  life and life to the truth.
T3:1.13 represent the truth and, in so doing, we bring the truth to life and  life to the truth.
T3:3.3 ago gave up trying. Most of you fall somewhere in between, living a  life full of good intentions and effort and being surprised neither
T3:3.7 that exist 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
T3:3.8 You cannot think your way to the new  life that calls to you. You can only get there by being who you are
T3:4.5 that would not support it was the folly that the ego made of  life. The only way for such an error to be seen as an error was
T3:5.7 an end to pain and suffering and a beginning of resurrection and new  life. It was a gift meant to empty the world of the ego-self and to
T3:5.7 purpose worthy of God’s son, the crucifixion would have ended  life in form and returned the sons of man to the formless. Instead,
T3:5.8 means 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
T3:6.1 the same as the “rewards” you seek—some of you from God, some from  life, some from fate. No matter who it is you think is in charge of
T3:6.2 have just traveled, discussing the reign of God and the meaning of  life and death. But this is one of the key ideas that will keep you
T3:6.2 and your own self. It is an idea that has been transferred to all of  life, much as the idea of an unlovable self was transferred into all
T3:6.2 as the idea of an unlovable self was transferred into all areas of  life without your realization.
T3:7.8 Thus has been the best of what you call  life within the illusion.
T3:8.11 looked for was found. If what was looked for were means of making  life easier, why not the idea of machinery and tools that would seem
T3:9.6 experiences have eased the fears of many but made many more long for  life after death rather than life. You who have followed me beyond
T3:9.6 of many but made many more long for life after death rather than  life. You who have followed me beyond the walls of the house of
T3:9.6 are now called to begin the act of revealing and creating anew the  life of heaven on earth.
T3:10.1 or known. Thus are more practical lessons needed in regard to the  life of the body that you now will let serve our cause of creating
T3:10.2 an exercise in forgetting. As often as is possible within your daily  life, I ask you to forget as much of what you have learned as you are
T3:10.7 time of unlearning what the past but seemed to teach you. Now, while  life may seem much unchanged in its outward appearance, it is up to
T3:10.16 we have called these lessons in forgetting practical lessons for the  life of the body. They are lessons that will soon be translated in
T3:12.9 The  life of the physical self became a life of suffering and strife only
T3:12.9 The life of the physical self became a  life of suffering and strife only because the physical or personal
T3:13.4 have been made now, giving you the beginnings of a vision of a  life in physical form that will not include the very temptations we
T3:13.9 imagine the truth of these words really being represented in the  life you live here. This you must now do. You must represent the
T3:13.9 must now do. You must represent the truth of these words with your  life.
T3:14.1 physical experience. You may live a more peaceful and meaningful  life, but you will not become the savior I ask you to be, or the
T3:14.2 this period of translation, rather than cursing your station in  life and feeling badly that you do not enjoy the health, wealth or
T3:14.2 yourself on desiring less and be more content living a simple  life. If you have felt a lack of respect you may feel that what
T3:14.5 at now is that you but think you are discontent with much of your  life. As you begin to dwell in the House of Truth and see with the
T3:14.5 Truth and see with the eyes of love, you will see far less about the  life you lead that you would change than you would imagine. You fear
T3:14.6 love, you will be much more likely to see love everywhere within the  life you currently live than to see the need to change your life
T3:14.6 the life you currently live than to see the need to change your  life completely in order to find love. You who are worried about the
T3:14.7 This is precisely why you must choose not to keep the  life of discomfort caused by perceived illness, the life of scarcity
T3:14.7 not to keep the life of discomfort caused by perceived illness, the  life of scarcity caused by perceived lack, the lack of stature caused
T3:14.9 You will clearly see all of the choices that throughout your  life have been made in love and made of you a person you would not be
T3:14.9 You will also clearly see all of the choices that throughout your  life were caused by fear and how little consequence they had in
T3:14.13 This is why you have been assured that what you are called to is a  life so new that you cannot even imagine it. Imagine not the past and
T3:15.1 children to give them the chance to begin again. At all stages of  life new friendships are formed and the relationship with each new
T3:15.1 and the births of new family members form new configurations in a  life. Nature begins anew each spring.
T3:16.4 more peaceful and free of fear than you have ever been. While your  life may not have changed in ways that you would like and while its
T3:16.4 that you feel you need in order to reflect, within your daily  life, the new Self you have become.
T3:16.8 in patterns that have you attempting to “accomplish” set goals in  life. The key to resisting these temptations is not resistance at all
T3:19.7 Because the spiritual  life has so often been linked with celibacy I will mention sexual
T3:21.15 aspect is based upon your family of origin, its history, and on the  life you have led since your birth. The self-image aspect is based
T3:21.24 more eloquently or who are better examples of a good and saintly  life are those who will lead the way for others to follow. Do not
T3:22.1 ideas may not seem to have much relevance or relationship to the  life you currently live. While you may be happy to learn that you are
T3:22.1 in what direction living by the truth will take you, for surely your  life must change. The very precepts put forth within this Course,
T3:22.1 seem as evidence that you will no longer be allowed the “separate”  life, or private life that you have lived.
T3:22.1 that you will no longer be allowed the “separate” life, or private  life that you have lived.
T3:22.3 be otherwise. You may bring this beauty to any number of walks of  life, to what you currently do or to something you have always dreamt
T3:22.15 Do not bring this attitude into your new thought system or your new  life. If you are tired of the old, be willing to be done with the old.
T4:1.7 or opportunity, they might easily choose not to learn. The nature of  life, however, is one of learning, and if they do not learn what is
T4:1.14 chosen people. If the chosen time had been two thousand years ago,  life would have been different since then. If Jesus Christ were the
T4:1.14 been different since then. If Jesus Christ were the chosen one, his  life would have changed the world. If the Israelites were the chosen
T4:2.21 that exists with you, including the days that make up your  life in time and space. Observing what is unites you with the present
T4:2.22 your own direct relationship with God, or the possibility that your  life is a direct experience of the pattern of unity or oneness that
T4:2.23 exists with the unseen and even the seen. You have moved through  life believing you have relationships with family and friends and
T4:2.23 of time, but still essentially seeing yourself moving through  life alone, with few sustaining connections save for special
T4:2.23 or of other occurrences that are likely to have an impact on your  life or on your part of the world. But unless you believe in the
T4:2.28 differentiated me from my brothers and sisters at the time of my  life on earth. Because my state of consciousness, a state of
T4:3.5 the displacement of the original intent was so complete that each  life has begun with fear and proceeded from this beginning
T4:3.13 state of a being of form, and at the same time to hang on to  life; not realizing that what exists in form does not have to be
T4:3.13 to its natural state of love, is one of unity and everlasting  life.
T4:3.14 The idea of everlasting  life in form has seemed a curse to some, a miracle to others. Death
T4:3.14 a miracle to others. Death comes as destruction to some, as new  life to others. Either way is but your choice. Your attachment to
T4:3.14 life to others. Either way is but your choice. Your attachment to  life has kept you alive in form. Your attachment to death has kept
T4:3.15 The promise of  life everlasting was not an empty promise. It is a promise that has
T4:4.1 Where there is a pattern of life-everlasting, there is everlasting  life. Means and end are one, cause and effect the same.
T4:4.2 as rest. You do not realize that your nature, and the nature of your  life, like that of all around you, is governed by seasons natural to
T4:4.6 What my  life demonstrated was a capacity for inheritance not based upon
T4:4.6 demonstrated was a capacity for inheritance not based upon death. My  life, death and resurrection revealed the power of inheritance, the
T4:4.7 There is no discontinuity within creation. Like begets like.  Life begets life. Thus is revealed the pattern of life-everlasting.
T4:4.7 is no discontinuity within creation. Like begets like. Life begets  life. Thus is revealed the pattern of life-everlasting.
T4:4.10 a lifetime—be it a lifetime of twenty or fifty or ninety years.  Life has continuously been prolonged without a substantial change in
T4:4.10 been prolonged without a substantial change in the nature of  life. To think of living on and on as you have lived your life thus
T4:4.10 nature of life. To think of living on and on as you have lived your  life thus far would not appeal to many of you. Those aged and
T4:4.10 of you. Those aged and contemplating death might wish for prolonged  life, but many of these same welcome death as the end to suffering
T4:4.10 as the end to suffering and strife. To continue on endlessly with  life as it has been would only relegate more and more to lives not
T4:4.12 while you still abide in form is to be fully aware that you have  life everlasting.
T4:4.13 Being fully aware that you have  life everlasting is totally different than having faith in an
T4:4.13 faith would not be necessary. Faith will become unnecessary, as  life everlasting becomes known to you.
T4:4.14 True vision sees life-everlasting where perception but saw finite  life and mortal bodies. Once vision and Christ-consciousness has
T4:4.18 it will take on the nature of Christ-consciousness, of which my  life was the example life. To sustain Christ-consciousness in form is
T4:4.18 the nature of Christ-consciousness, of which my life was the example  life. To sustain Christ-consciousness in form is creation of the new.
T4:4.18 Christ-consciousness in form is creation of the new. My one example  life could not sustain Christ-consciousness for those who came after
T4:5.3 and thus this one energy existing in everything, and creating the  life in everything, is Christ-consciousness. It is also what we have
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 seemingly
T4:5.12 this now and you will see that it is true. You hoped to live a good  life and at the end of that life to know God. Your vision of the
T4:5.12 it is true. You hoped to live a good life and at the end of that  life to know God. Your vision of the afterlife was one in which God
T4:5.13 in the glory that is yours, that determines the way in which your  life will continue. The same is true right now! For this is the time
T4:6.3 and some are not. Those who believe that life-everlasting includes  life on other worlds can create a scenario in which it appears that
T4:6.3 and the one life-giving energy that unites us all will but continue  life as it has been but in different form. The realization of unity
T4:7.8 one guided by love and thus be a joyous choice and ensure a joyous  life. These choices will change the world.
T4:8.1 express love in physical form, and so began this experience of human  life. You are now beginning to be able to understand that it was God
T4:8.2 It was one choice made in unity. It was the choice of all for  life everlasting and life ever-expressing. It was the choice for
T4:8.2 made in unity. It was the choice of all for life everlasting and  life ever-expressing. It was the choice for creation, for creation is
T4:9.5 you ready to change and able to change in certain ways that make  life easier or more peaceful, but certainly not able to realize the
T4:10.2 for perhaps the first time, that learning is what your entire  life has been about. You cannot imagine how you will come to know
T4:10.3 path of learning, you have come to see everything in your  life as exactly what it has been—a means of learning. You have
T4:10.3 on your Self, but you did, in a sense, study every aspect of your  life for the lessons contained therein. So how, you might ask, do you
T4:10.4 In keeping with your new self-centered focus on what  life has had to teach you, you have also seen your relationships as
T4:12.12 who spoke of how he knew, as soon as he was content within the  life of the monastery, that it was time to once again move out into
D:1.2 In going forth with the vision of unity you become as I was during  life. You “receive” and you “give” from the well of the spirit. You
D:2.1 contrary to the attitudes and actions with which you have led your  life thus far. You were told within A Course of Love that willingness
D:2.2 you are asked to refuse to accept who you are not and the ways of  life that allowed you to live within the world as a false self.
D:2.6 here, an example that illustrates only one aspect of the learner’s  life, an inability to claim the new identity could at times be
D:2.14 Many of you have believed that the more details of  life you have within your control, the more likely you are to control
D:2.14 outcome. Others of you have believed that the more details of your  life that are kept under the control of a benevolent system, such as
D:3.2 This call has always sounded. It is not a death knell but a call to  life. It is not of the past or the future but of the eternal now. It
D:3.3 It calls to you and asks you to invest your  life with the very purpose you have always desired. You are not
D:3.3 purpose you have always desired. You are not purposeless now. Your  life is not meaningless. You are the ushers, the pioneers of the new.
D:3.6 You learned from the contrast of love and fear, sickness and health,  life and death. In this time of Christ, such learning is no longer
D:3.7 together to do is to begin to declassify all the various aspects of  life that were needed in the time of learning. This is why we began
D:3.10 be seeking now for replacements for that which formerly ordered your  life. Thus we will speak of these replacements.
D:3.20 As the system of nature supports the  life of many different trees, the trees are all still of one
D:4.5 crimes of some. Think instead of prison simply becoming a way of  life for those who are incarcerated there. Each of you has had an
D:4.7 as an actual prisoner, when released from prison, must adjust to a  life in which his or her actions are no longer restricted
D:4.7 restricted artificially, you must adjust to your new freedom. Your  life has been artificially restricted by the prison you have created
D:4.7 yet those who are imprisoned often become so acclimated to prison  life, that life on the “outside” is no longer seen as desirable. How
D:4.7 who are imprisoned often become so acclimated to prison life, that  life on the “outside” is no longer seen as desirable. How can this be?
D:4.8 A  life of artificial structure is all any of you have known. An
D:4.8 structure is all any of you have known. An internally structured  life will quickly replace the life of the inmate if you will but let
D:4.8 have known. An internally structured life will quickly replace the  life of the inmate if you will but let it do so. Even those who
D:4.8 system you have made are free to follow an internally structured  life to a greater extent than many of those who call themselves free.
D:4.11 idea of a purposeless existence, a universe with no divine order, a  life in which you are at the mercy of fate. The new idea you are
D:4.11 purposeful, that the universe exists in divine order, and that your  life is part of that divine design.

D:Day1.5 requirements, requirements of daily life rather than of eternal  life. The requirement asked of you here is not to exclude others in

D:Day2.2 You have let go the ego, re-viewed your  life, unlearned previous patterns, and now see the difference between
D:Day2.2 in moments in which you would desire peace, memories of your  life continue to play within your mind, often still bringing you
D:Day2.3 poor choices have been reconciled. You can see the pattern of your  life as clearly now as if a masterful biography had been written of
D:Day2.3 this clarity that has brought a new “haunting” to some of you. Your  life is being seen more as a whole now. The parts are fitting
D:Day2.12 your judgment. We look for a simple acceptance of the facts of your  life.
D:Day2.14 your re-viewing and unlearning of the perceived lessons of your  life.
D:Day2.16 This is an example from my own  life, an example the idea of which still plagues many of you. This

D:Day2.17 will not walk in my footsteps. Perhaps you will be granted eternal  life, but not until you have suffered as I suffered. This idea would

D:Day2.18 As was said within this Course, my life is the example  life. The way in which I have talked of it recently may have led some
D:Day2.18 of it recently may have led some of you to consider it as a symbolic  life rather than an actual life. All of our lives here are symbolic
D:Day2.18 some of you to consider it as a symbolic life rather than an actual  life. All of our lives here are symbolic rather than actual. Just as
D:Day2.18 story is symbolic rather than actual. This does not mean that my  life did not happen, that it did not occur in time and space, just as
D:Day2.19 So let us consider my  life again, just briefly, and let us consider the something more it

D:Day2.21 idea put forth here that until you are aware of who you are, your  life has not literally or symbolically begun.
D:Day2.22 It was in awareness of who I Am that my  life took on meaning. It could be argued that this awareness existed
D:Day2.23 My mature  life thus began with the recognition of who I Am, as does yours. This
D:Day2.23 of who I Am, as does yours. This time was followed by my “example  life,” a life that began with the forty days and forty nights spent
D:Day2.23 I Am, as does yours. This time was followed by my “example life,” a  life that began with the forty days and forty nights spent upon the
D:Day2.23 of light to darkness, power to the powerless, health to the sick,  life to the dead. My life touched all those willing to be touched,

D:Day3.7 your mind that these new ideas will change your actions and your  life, your mind that, through increased stillness, will give you more

D:Day3.9 Just posing the idea that having a spiritual context for your  life will assist you in living abundantly will cause you to think, “I
D:Day3.9 You might think spirituality can assist you in living a more simple  life and thus a life of limits of which you are more accepting. But
D:Day3.9 spirituality can assist you in living a more simple life and thus a  life of limits of which you are more accepting. But given time to
D:Day3.9 between the general and specific, thinking of both your own lack in  life and that of those whose lack is more pronounced than your own.
D:Day3.15 such as these? How do you accept me when you see me as symbolizing a  life of “godly” poverty, and of calling my followers to abandon their
D:Day3.22 greatest limits to what you can accomplish, to how you can live the  life you would choose to live. You may have left behind aspirations
D:Day3.22 as one that does not touch upon this aspect of “reality.” The better  life you might attain will be a by-product rather than the effect of
D:Day3.23 solid and unrelenting. Not having “enough” is the “reality” of your  life because it was the reality of the learning life. Even if you are
D:Day3.23 “reality” of your life because it was the reality of the learning  life. Even if you are one of those others consider lucky, one of
D:Day3.49 you are responsible for the abundance or lack of abundance in your  life. That it is you who, by changing your beliefs or your actions,
D:Day3.60 Active acceptance is what allows the great transformation from  life as you have known it, to death of that old life, to rebirth of
D:Day3.60 transformation from life as you have known it, to death of that old  life, to rebirth of new life. By clinging to some of the old, you
D:Day3.60 as you have known it, to death of that old life, to rebirth of new  life. By clinging to some of the old, you prevent its death and you
D:Day4.7 that, despite evolution, has not left any of you. You all begin  life without the ability to think in the terms you now associate
D:Day4.10 You are here now not to relearn or be taught what  life is all about, not to relearn or be taught the “way things are”
D:Day4.10 to relearn or be taught the “way things are” but to discover what  life is all about and to discover the way to remake things as they
D:Day4.16 contemplate for a moment what you know about the example left by my  life, you will almost surely realize fairly quickly that my life
D:Day4.16 by my life, you will almost surely realize fairly quickly that my  life challenged the world-view of the time and that it is still
D:Day4.17 Let me assure you of what you already know, that everything about my  life was purposeful. That challenge was meant then, and continues to
D:Day4.18 a call to create a new system. But nowhere in my example  life is such a system found despite all attempts to make it so.
D:Day4.20 In the time of learning, however, it was natural that my example  life was seen as something from which to learn. In order to “teach”
D:Day4.20 seen as something from which to learn. In order to “teach” what my  life represented to those who did not know me, methods of teaching
D:Day4.32 natural state, much like breathing is simply a fact of the natural  life of the body.
D:Day4.44 remains unknown, is still what you know you have longed for all your  life. This unknown has been described to you in terms both specific
D:Day4.44 you have desired and more. It has been described as the end to the  life of misery you have known and the beginning of new life. And I
D:Day4.44 end to the life of misery you have known and the beginning of new  life. And I tell you truly, here is where this new life either begins
D:Day4.44 beginning of new life. And I tell you truly, here is where this new  life either begins or is once again delayed. Here is where you say, I
D:Day4.46 living from love is. It means that you will resurrect to eternal  life here and now. It means no turning back, no return to fear or
D:Day6.2 way partially because to ask you to walk away from your “normal”  life for forty days and forty nights would cause too much anxiety and
D:Day6.13 to go about this creative process while remaining embroiled in daily  life—I want to acknowledge the difficulty some of you will seem to
D:Day6.13 you will seem to be experiencing even while pointing out to you that  life is life.
D:Day6.13 seem to be experiencing even while pointing out to you that life is  life.
D:Day6.14 a corresponding desire not to have to focus on the details of daily  life. You may be thinking that the ease so often spoken of in our
D:Day6.15 will have to come first, an ability to focus on other than daily  life will have to come first. These are what these continuing
D:Day6.16 They will facilitate this by facilitating the acceptance of  life as it is. This is why this dialogue is occurring on the holy
D:Day6.16 is occurring on the holy mountain without taking you away from  life as you know it. We are, after all, speaking of the elevation of
D:Day6.16 of the elevation of the self of form. This elevation must occur in  life, in your life as it is, rather than in some idealized situation
D:Day6.16 of the self of form. This elevation must occur in life, in your  life as it is, rather than in some idealized situation away from what
D:Day6.16 than in some idealized situation away from what you consider normal  life.
D:Day6.17 our dialogue on the holy mountain while you remain within your  life for the very purpose of not allowing this to happen.
D:Day6.18 not have changed or will be changing the very fabric of your daily  life. Changes you feel called to make are not discouraged here. The
D:Day6.18 discouraged here. The point being made is simply that removal from  life is not possible or desirable.
D:Day6.19 Learning takes the student away from “normal”  life and creates a place for teaching and only calls this place
D:Day6.19 and discovery cannot occur in a place set apart from “normal”  life. Believe me when I tell you that the elevation you are currently
D:Day6.20 experience. They were temptations of the world, of the normal, daily  life of my time. They were attempts to distract me from my purpose,
D:Day6.22 The point here, however, is this: Quit trying to remove yourself from  life! If this were required it would be done! Think not that I cannot
D:Day6.28 so the lack of desire you are experiencing for other areas of the  life you still seem so deeply involved in is disturbing to you. Yet
D:Day6.28 why should this be disturbing? Why should you continue to desire the  life you have had?
D:Day6.29 and yet here are you told not to try to remove yourself from  life.
D:Day6.30 you need to be other than yourself in order to navigate your daily  life? What you are being shown here is that you do not. What you are
D:Day6.30 intersection, and pass-through. This is it! Right here in your  life as it is right now.
D:Day6.31 that you are able to embrace this dialogue and remain in your  life. Realize that this is just what we work toward! This difficulty
D:Day7.2 base emotion of fear. Fear is degenerating. Nothing about fear is  life giving. You thus were given life only to have it become
D:Day7.2 degenerating. Nothing about fear is life giving. You thus were given  life only to have it become degenerated by fear.
D:Day7.3 no longer denying unity. You have replaced fear with love. Love is  life giving and life supporting. There is thus nothing now
D:Day7.3 unity. You have replaced fear with love. Love is life giving and  life supporting. There is thus nothing now degenerating about life.
D:Day7.3 and life supporting. There is thus nothing now degenerating about  life.
D:Day7.4  Life is now supported. Support is thus a condition of the time of
D:Day7.5 because so many of you still do not feel supported in your daily  life. You may feel supported in your spiritual life, in your progress
D:Day7.5 in your daily life. You may feel supported in your spiritual  life, in your progress toward full awareness and the elevation of the
D:Day7.9 The conditions that affect  life are conditions that affect the body. Yet it was only your mind’s
D:Day7.12 you give up the control you have but thought you exerted over your  life and its circumstances, and live in a state of grace, meeting
D:Day7.14 an “if this, then that” situation, just because breathing sustains  life? Your access to union sustains real life, the life of the Self,
D:Day7.14 because breathing sustains life? Your access to union sustains real  life, the life of the Self, and will come to sustain the elevated
D:Day7.14 sustains life? Your access to union sustains real life, the  life of the Self, and will come to sustain the elevated Self of form
D:Day7.18 like the conditions of the time of learning, arise from within.  Life has always existed within the conditions of the time of
D:Day8.1 as a result of our dialogue concerning not removing yourself from  life. Your whole purpose in pursuing the course of this dialogue may
D:Day8.1 at least subconsciously, the idea of removing yourself from normal  life. Even the conditions of the time of acceptance may not have
D:Day8.2 If you can’t remove yourself from  life, what choice have you but to join with it? Love it. Love
D:Day8.2 enough to accept yourself. Love will transform normal, ordinary,  life into extraordinary life. Loving exactly who you are and where
D:Day8.2 Love will transform normal, ordinary, life into extraordinary  life. Loving exactly who you are and where you are in every moment is
D:Day8.2 the transformation that will end your desire to remove yourself from  life. All those frustrations you currently feel have a purpose: To
D:Day8.3 not like. Do you really think you are being called to accept “normal  life?” Called to accept those conditions that have made you feel
D:Day8.4 Realize that your desire for your  life to be different, your desire for your unhappiness to be gone, is
D:Day8.4 gone, is very unlikely, in truth, to stem from the details of your  life. Even so, you are not called to accept what you do not like, but
D:Day8.8 be but of the way you are now. There will be many things within your  life that will take some time to change, but many others that can
D:Day9.1 on our mountain top retreat. We have not removed ourselves from  life in any way, and yet we have reached a place of retreat, a place
D:Day9.1 retreat, a place of safety and of rest, a place away from “normal”  life and the lack of freedom you have experienced there. I am your
D:Day9.32 the freedom to strive to be more and to do more. You might ask what  life would be for without this type of freedom to strive, to achieve,
D:Day10.27 I asked you once before to review your ideas about the afterlife, a  life in which most of you believe peacefulness reigns and the spirit
D:Day10.27 not be likely to think of them much differently than they were in  life, even while you are able to imagine them being peaceful and free
D:Day10.28 longer as you consider a particular person you fondly remember from  life and how you have thought of him or her since death. Do you not
D:Day10.31 you do not know your power. If there is one thing associated with my  life more so than any other, it was this. I was an advocate for all
D:Day10.32 for now is the same extreme measure that I called for during my  life. It is the call to embrace your power.
D:Day11.5 as it is of the self of form. God is the oneness and the separation.  Life is the relationship. God is what is. Life is the relationship of
D:Day11.5 and the separation. Life is the relationship. God is what is.  Life is the relationship of what is with Its Self.
D:Day11.8  Life is the connecting tissue of the web of form with the divine All.
D:Day11.8 Life is the connecting tissue of the web of form with the divine All.  Life is consciousness. Christ-consciousness is awareness of what is.
D:Day13.3 the one. The oneness that your individual self represents in this  life is the oneness of the Holy One who is both one—somewhat in the
D:Day15.6 relationship of observation that you have interacted with all other  life forms as well as with inanimate forms. In the relationship
D:Day15.8 place at the birth of the body and then cease to be. It is not about  life and making form alive but about spirit and informing spirit. It

D:Day15.24 been in two places at once without being divided. As you re-enter  life on level-ground, this ability to carry an undivided but spacious
D:Day16.4 know—that you are responsible for the sorry circumstances of your  life.
D:Day16.5 or the world in general, are to blame for the sorry state of your  life.
D:Day17.2 anointed form with the “I Am” of God. In many religious traditions,  life is ritually or sacramentally anointed in its coming and its
D:Day17.12 of what can be realized, or made real, through following the example  life of Jesus.
D:Day18.3 was a way of acceptance, teaching, learning, and leading an example  life, then the remaining ways of Jesus that are still applicable and
D:Day18.3 in this final period are those of acceptance and of being an example  life.
D:Day18.4 One Self among the many. In other words, to choose to be an example  life is to choose to be made known by, and to, the many. It is full
D:Day18.5 To be an example  life is to be what you represent in truth. Followers of all faiths
D:Day18.8 Often science and religion have puzzled over the “beginning” of  life, over what causes the formation of life, over what tells the
D:Day18.8 over the “beginning” of life, over what causes the formation of  life, over what tells the brain what to do, over the organizing
D:Day18.9 been the accomplished. If this had not been true, the cause of  life would not have been a cause of truth. Just as neither brain nor
D:Day18.9 could not truly exist and allow for a functioning state of  life or consciousness. Thus there was only a degree of separation
D:Day18.12 that has been re-found to be recreated for everyone. What else would  life be for but to make the invisible paradise of love visible and
D:Day19.10 only in that the example is not an example of an individuated  life but an example of the union and relationship that is all life.
D:Day19.10 life but an example of the union and relationship that is all  life.
D:Day21.6 You realize now that  life itself is a channel and that you are constantly receiving. You

D:Day22.1 the time of learning. It was also noted that you realize that all of  life is a channel. There is a big difference between seeing a teacher
D:Day22.1 is a big difference between seeing a teacher as a channel, all of  life as a channel, and the Self as a channel or channeler.
D:Day22.2 unknown moves into the state of knowing. This is the way in which  life itself can be seen as a channel. Since the first transition
D:Day22.2 in as many ways as possible to make this idea clear to you. You are  life, and you are also surrounded by living forces channeling to you
D:Day22.11 in which you know love, in which you know of joy without sorrow, and  life everlasting. This is the great unknown that you can make known.
D:Day23.1 must be a being who knows love without fear, joy without sorrow, and  life everlasting. You must be this. A Course of Love gave you the
D:Day24.2 You are the virgin, the pregnant, the birth, and the new  life. This is the way of the world as well as the way of creation.
D:Day27.1 of being apprehensive in terms of being fearful of the rest of your  life, but apprehensive in terms of taking hold of the rest of your
D:Day27.1 life, but apprehensive in terms of taking hold of the rest of your  life, of keeping it within your understanding, within your ability to
D:Day27.1 own grasp of it. You have been asked to let go of much, but not of  life.
D:Day27.2 agreed to this mountain top experience while remaining engaged in  life. You have thus begun to experience on two levels. This has been
D:Day27.3 Experiencing  life without the insight of spirit was to experience external life.
D:Day27.3 life without the insight of spirit was to experience external  life. Life itself showed you the way, pointed you in differing
D:Day27.3 life without the insight of spirit was to experience external life.  Life itself showed you the way, pointed you in differing directions,
D:Day27.3 you what you needed to know. This was the external experience of  life. Most of you have had well-examined external lives. You have
D:Day27.3 lives. You have looked for causes behind the direction in which  life led you, but your life was not inner-directed because it was
D:Day27.3 for causes behind the direction in which life led you, but your  life was not inner-directed because it was devoid of inner-sight.
D:Day27.6 ability to combine both levels of being through the experience of  life. You have already been doing this. You are, in fact, becoming
D:Day27.7 in, this new relationship that you have with yourself and with  life. You quite literally have a new way of seeing. You might think
D:Day27.8 breathing. In this same way, the dualistic seeming nature of all of  life will be revealed to only seem to be so.
D:Day27.15  Life, your humanity, is the variability. Spirit, your oneness, is the
D:Day27.15 humanity, is the variability. Spirit, your oneness, is the constant.  Life is oneness extended into separation and variability through
D:Day27.15 experience. The elevated Self of form will be the expression of new  life lived within the constant of wholeness but continuing to
D:Day28.1 or no choice between staying engaged in an externally directed  life and removing oneself from life. This may have seemed to be an
D:Day28.1 engaged in an externally directed life and removing oneself from  life. This may have seemed to be an either/or proposition and thus
D:Day28.1 from an externally directed to an internally directed experience of  life creates unlimited choices. The unlimited choices of internally
D:Day28.1 to know the difference between externally and internally directed  life experiences.
D:Day28.3 stage of awareness is a stage of simple external movement through  life. Many people, especially young adults, have little experience
D:Day28.5 outcome. By living the experiences of these externally directed  life situations, growth occurs, changes happen, new avenues to
D:Day28.5 of experience: That of external movement toward a chosen type of  life.
D:Day28.10 You and your  life are one. Your life is not the giver and you the receiver.
D:Day28.10 You and your life are one. Your  life is not the giver and you the receiver.
D:Day28.13 Depending on the circumstances of your  life, one of these two attitudes will have a reverse side that will
D:Day28.13 will have a reverse side that will have a greater hold on you. Your  life may have shown you that you are not in control in many ways and
D:Day28.13 ways and at many times. Therefore, you think that you must take what  life has to “give.” This is most likely the attitude of those whose
D:Day28.13 has to “give.” This is most likely the attitude of those whose major  life dilemmas have been of a monetary or career nature, where success
D:Day28.13 or failure “in life” is seen as the most crucial element of a happy  life.
D:Day28.14 of reversing is that of God determining the circumstances of your  life, you have probably been more affected by the relationships of
D:Day28.14 life, you have probably been more affected by the relationships of  life, by loss or death of loved ones, by accidents, or illness, or

C:9.33 all your happiness and power to that which you have made! It matters  little now that in so doing you once again imitated what your faulty
C:9.36 union, and each joining that you do in holy relationship returns a  little of the memory of union to you. This memory of your divinity is

T3:20.6 the future as a repetition of the present or as a long war with  little chance of being won. You chide yourself not to deny the facts,
T3:20.16 your brother or sister reaches out to you, all you need ask for is a  little willingness. All you need do is open the door through which

T3:10.11 While these may seem like remedial lessons, they are not. You are no  longer called to a time of uncertainty to learn through contrast the

T3:20.1 By saying that there is no  longer any time to be wasted on illusion we are saying that you will
T3:20.1 any time to be wasted on illusion we are saying that you will no  longer serve time but that time will serve you. Time was wasted on

T3:21.21 While this has been called the time of Christ, it is obviously no  longer the time of Jesus Christ. My time came and my time ended. The

T4:1.8 longer relevant, or that the means of teaching what is relevant no  longer works. It may be a choice made regarding means or content, a
T4:1.16 within you. It is in this way that time is not real and will no  longer be real to you as you come to live by the truth. It is in this
T4:2.30 Realize now that you have come to recognize unity. You do not any  longer see each person and event as separate, with no relation to the

T4:10.11 Learning has had to do with what is perceived. No  longer learning has to do with what is revealed. Learning has had to
T4:10.11 what is revealed. Learning has had to do with what is unknown. No  longer learning has to do with what is and can only be known through
T4:10.11 through revelation. Learning has had to do with supplying a lack. No  longer learning has to do with the realization that there is no lack.
T4:10.11 the desired experience of expressing the Self of love in form. No  longer learning is the revelation that the time of accomplishment is
T4:10.11 in order to know who you are and how to express who you are. No  longer learning, or being accomplished, is synonymous with knowing
T4:11.5 As I do so, I bid you to read these words in a new way. You are no  longer a learner here and what I reveal to you must be regarded as
T4:11.5 pages as a memory returned to your reunited heart and mind. No  longer regard me as an authority to whom you turn, but as an equal

D:3.21 being one. This awareness exists within you and you cannot any  longer claim to be unaware of it through non-acceptance of what is.
D:4.7 prison, must adjust to a life in which his or her actions are no  longer restricted artificially, you must adjust to your new freedom.
D:4.7 so acclimated to prison life, that life on the “outside” is no  longer seen as desirable. How can this be?
D:4.18 to know your Self is all that learning was for. Let us not dwell any  longer on why this has taken so long or on the suffering that
D:4.20 to tell you anew what to do with who you are now that you are no  longer a prisoner. Do not give keys to a new jailer and ask to be

D:5.12 all you see. But what now will become of these patterns that are no  longer needed as your learning and that of those around you comes to
D:5.13 are still a learning being and have need of such help. You are no  longer a learning being and need not this assistance.
D:5.18 you is also what I am addressing here. Release through death is no  longer the answer. Release through life is the answer. Release
D:5.20 What I’m revealing to you here is that what was once a prison may no  longer be a prison! If you continue to think of your body as a
D:5.21 time of no time. You will wonder how to live in time as a being no  longer bound by time. And I tell you truly, that once acceptance of

D:5.22 Hesitate no longer. Let your willingness exceed your trepidation. No  longer wait to be told more before you accept what you have already

D:6.21 As a non-learning being you are now called to accept that you no  longer need this type of learning device and to realize that it will
D:6.21 need this type of learning device and to realize that it will no  longer serve you.
D:6.28 you have been told time is a measurement of learning. If you are no  longer a learning being, for what is time needed? Time is needed now
D:8.2 Ah, you might say now, this you have heard before. This idea of no  longer needing to learn has intrigued you since it was first
D:8.8 know how to rid yourself of former patterns. Your mind, while it no  longer wants to cling to known patterns, is confronted with them

D:11.6 Is it not possible to conceive of a time in which desire will no  longer serve you, just as learning now no longer serves you? If you
D:11.6 in which desire will no longer serve you, just as learning now no  longer serves you? If you reach a state of full acceptance of who you
D:12.16 the phrase “beyond a shadow of a doubt” will be something you no  longer need add to your knowing of the truth because you will realize
D:13.6 a state of being able to sustain Christ consciousness, this will no  longer be a problem because you will constantly abide in awareness of
D:15.16 prepared for this by the realization that your thinking mind will no  longer be necessary as your access to unity, or Christ-consciousness,
D:15.21 left behind the conditions of learning. Why? Because they are no  longer needed. The time of learning has ended. When this time of
D:15.21 all that is available within unity, or Christ-consciousness, will no  longer be needed. This will be as big a step as was the step that
D:16.3 did not form. But as can be easily seen, the earth is no  longer a formless wasteland. Form was animated with spirit and
D:16.6 awareness of Self are whole and complete, being, like love, is no  longer capable of being learned, for it no longer has attributes.
D:16.6 being, like love, is no longer capable of being learned, for it no  longer has attributes.
D:16.14 are confident in what you know. You realize fully that you are no  longer a learning being and that you have no need for teachers or for
D:16.20 images be without reacting to them. It is a time of coming to no  longer “hold” these images in your mind and heart. It is a time of
D:17.10 hope by as you have moved beyond the state of initiation. You are no  longer hopeful for what will come. Hope is desire accompanied by
D:17.10 accompanied by expectation. To expect is to await, and you are no  longer waiting. You have arrived. You have passed through the stage
D:17.14 Is it not possible to conceive of a time in which desire will no  longer serve you, just as learning now no longer serves you? If you

D:Day3.24 is the pattern of the ego’s survival, and even though the ego is no  longer with you, the pattern remains because what you learned, and
D:Day3.36 Learning is no  longer the way for good reason. It exemplifies the difference between

D:Day4.34 serve you now. It is not a tool, as is meditation, for you are no  longer in need of tools. But you have taken yourself away from the
D:Day4.46 anger, no return to separation, no return to judgment. It means no  longer trying to leave these things behind for they will be gone. It

D:Day7.3 your Self is the precondition for the time of acceptance. You are no  longer denying your Self. You are no longer denying unity. You have
D:Day7.3 time of acceptance. You are no longer denying your Self. You are no  longer denying unity. You have replaced fear with love. Love is life
D:Day8.21 Now you must realize that you no  longer have cause to fear your feelings. They will no longer be the
D:Day8.21 that you no longer have cause to fear your feelings. They will no  longer be the source of the misdirection of the past if you accept
D:Day8.28 over which are true and which are false! To realize that you no  longer have false feelings. That your feelings are not misleading you

D:Day14.13 of the many will continue to point the way for only a short time  longer. Thus the voice of the many must be heard as the voice of the
D:Day15.9 new practice of informing, until the practice of observation is no  longer needed.

D:17.5 want, asks for a response rather than a provision. Desire is a  longing for, a stretching out for. Imagine yourself at the summit of
D:17.5 earth below. This is the stance of both desire and fulfillment. Of  longing and attainment. Of having asked and having received. Of

C:2.10 is the miracle. The miracle is true seeing. Think not that love can  look on misery and see love there. Love looks not on misery at all.

C:2.15 from the past to show you the way beyond illusions to the present.  Look within to the one in you who knows the way. Christ is within you

C:9.5  Look around the room in which you sit and take away the usefulness
C:9.5 each thing you see in it. How many items would you keep that you now  look upon? Your body too was created for its usefulness. It sets you
C:9.10  Look upon your body now as you earlier looked upon the space you
C:9.10 Take away the body’s usefulness. Would you keep that which you now  look upon? As you stand back and observe your body, always with the

C:9.34 you to make of yourself and your world what you will. Now you  look upon this world with guilt and see it as evidence of your evil
C:9.41 achievement has become the idol you would glorify, and you need not  look far for evidence that this is so. This idolatry tells you that

C:12.5 security of a loving home, even if it is one only of philosophy. You  look for the soft assurance of certainty, not of your mind but of
C:12.10 in God’s creation, something has gone wrong! All you need do is  look about you to know that this is so—and, rather than be
C:12.18 you to do things you might have never dreamed of doing. People often  look back upon their lives and wonder how they got from here to
C:13.10 value. And there is not even the slightest chance of being made to  look foolish by what you are asked to do.
C:14.9 same world based upon these different foundations could not help but  look quite different.
C:14.10 is required is all to feed your idea of your own specialness. You  look for constant verification that this one you love loves you in
C:14.12 about yourself and the world you have made if you are but willing to  look at it with eyes that truly see. It is the magnifying glass that
C:14.19 place. Still others are more coy in their design, and dress it up to  look like sacrifice and gifts given, but all with the same purpose in

C:14.30 love’s opposite is brought into existence. While you refuse to  look upon this simple fact, you have no hope of change, nor does your
C:15.5 others well. You would not be special to this one if you did not  look a certain way, and you would not be special to that one if you
C:15.5 because if you were to go your own way and choose your own  look, lifestyle, or attitude, you might risk being seen as special

C:16.13 This form of forgiveness seems impossible to you because you  look upon an unforgiven world where evil walks, danger lurks, and
C:16.24 a sacrificial lamb, an offering onto God that God does not want. You  look back on stories of sacrifice from the Bible and think what a
C:18.9 learn what you choose to learn. For proof of this all you need do is  look at the world that was created from your wish to learn what the
C:19.23 your perception, can be changed. This is necessary before you can  look back in a new way and not simply cover the same ground you have

C:29.13 another way of saying your life, and an alternative view of how you  look at your life, when seen thus, is absolutely necessary.
C:29.14 No wholeness will be possible for you while you  look at life in terms of schedules, plans, time-tables, or things to
C:29.22 You who have so long been afraid to claim your smallest gifts,  look again at claiming with the definition I have provided. Claiming
C:29.25 gifts, your talents, your uniqueness, are your service. Can you not  look at them thus? And can you not come to understand the reciprocal
C:31.9 Thus your confusion is also your key to understanding. You need but  look at creation’s projection to understand the nature of perfection
C:31.28 Just as you  look to God for your Self, knowing not what it is you seek, so too do
C:31.28 to God for your Self, knowing not what it is you seek, so too do you  look to your brothers and sisters and all else that lives along with
C:31.28 and sisters and all else that lives along with you. But when you  look, knowing not what you seek, what you find varies. Since there is
C:31.28 a variety of answers means nothing. If you but change what you  look for, what you see and what you learn will also change.
C:31.29 If you can  look for your Self within your brothers and sisters, however, they
C:31.29 within your brothers and sisters, however, they must also be able to  look for their Selves in you. If you are constantly reflecting back
C:32.1 is first and foremost anything that aids your remembering. Thus  look not at the form in which a teacher arrives. It can truly be said
C:32.1 the difference for your answers. Now you can see that you need to  look to a different source.
T1:1.2 Thus this Treatise will attempt to give specific examples of what to  look for as your learning continues, or how to identify wholehearted
T1:2.13 needs to at first be seen in two parts. An example illustrates. To  look at a sunset is to see an object, the sun. It is also to see the
T1:4.16 to who you are. What might such a response sound like? Feel like?  Look like? It is a response of pure appreciation and love. It is
T1:4.16 love. It is always available. It is the gift given in everything you  look upon and see without the obstacle of the ego-mind’s
T1:5.9 study and the reason, when you have freed your self, that you will  look back and see how easy this one choice really is.
T1:7.4 I have said that the time of parables has ended and asked you not to  look to those historical figures that taught in such a way as your
T1:10.6 chosen them for just this reason. But you can now be an observer and  look upon them as your brothers and sisters learning choice without
T1:10.9 Each of you will have an experience you  look back on, an experience of profound joy or grief that also became
T1:10.10 such sway over you that you would choose not the Peace of God. But  look past what you have remembered to what was truly there. No moment
T1:10.11 they do not happen within them. Peak experiences are what you can  look forward to rather than back upon if you but choose the Peace of
T2:2.7 Those who seek an explanation before following a calling, who  look for reasons of a practical nature, who would seek guarantees of
T2:4.7 to your reaction to all that occurs within your life. Let us  look now at your reaction to the idea put forth earlier of having a
T3:3.9 better suited to putting these beliefs into practice. Or you might  look at your behaviors, your habits, your general personality, and
T3:8.6 that you think you would have given anything to change? Do you  look upon the ill and blame them for their illness? Do you not look
T3:8.6 you look upon the ill and blame them for their illness? Do you not  look upon all suffering and feel bitter at your own inability to
T3:8.12 for what they have imagined it was possible to find. Why would you  look for an end to suffering if you felt this was impossible? Much
T3:8.12 an end to suffering if you felt this was impossible? Much better to  look for cures and treatments than for an end to what but seemed
T3:14.2 and strife would still seem to be possible. You would merely  look back after the interlude had passed and see the truth, realizing
T3:14.11 The choice now is not a choice to explore the why behind it or to  look for remedies for the past. The choice now is whether you want
T3:14.12 of you but of God. You might think of this in terms of nature and  look upon nature’s ability to correct itself. You are a part of
T3:15.2 and death. This is something we will return to, but first let us  look at other types of new beginnings and all that would hamper them
T3:16.2 plan and you do not need to know precisely what this new world will  look like. You simply need to be willing to live by the truth.
T3:19.12 is to blame for the illness within them. But you must be able to  look at and see reality for what it is. Just as we are telling you
T3:20.6 how realistic you should be or should assume the other to be. You  look ahead, and in your mind’s eye you “observe” the future as a
T3:20.10 system is not tied to beliefs of an “if this, then that” nature.  Look at the examples all around you. People who live what you call
T3:21.22 or turns to someone older. And yet it will matter that someone will  look at you and see that you are not so different than he or she. It
T3:21.22 not so different than he or she. It will matter that someone will  look at you and be drawn to the truth of him- or herself that is seen
T3:22.16 personal self. You have created your personal self, and only you can  look upon this personal self with the vision of creation, creating
T4:1.7 be as easily stated as all are chosen for schooling. Some might  look at this as lack of choice, saying that anything that is
T4:1.9 the “educated” choice and the “uneducated” choice. Many of you may  look back on choices that you made and say, “I would have chosen
T4:1.13 might be possible is possible, and has been possible, are you to  look on all of those who have come before you as failures? Has the
T4:1.16 notions of blame must be gone from you. Thus, you are asked not to  look back with blame, for no such cause for blame exists. No cause to
T4:1.16 back with 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
T4:2.29 judgment. To see without judgment is to see truly. You need not  look for good or bad, but only need be steadily aware that you can
T4:4.11 What is it then, of which I speak? If you still must  look ahead and see death looming on the horizon, how can it be that I

D:4.7 merely mirrors this restriction on a grand scale for all to see and  look upon with dread. For most, the prison system is a very
D:4.10 Let’s  look at each of these terms separately so that we see the nature of
D:4.20 Turn your back on the prison of your former existence and do not  look at it again. Do not long for its old structure or the false
D:4.20 or the false security you came to feel at times within it. Do not  look for a new structure with barred windows and doors to keep you
D:5.9 Thus must it be now with everything in your world. Everywhere you  look the lie of false representation will be exposed and the truth
D:6.10 science is beginning to see much as it truly is, scientists still  look for natural laws that govern what is in an “if this, then that”
