C:12.4 of yourself. Yet you must understand that nothing that is not  part of God is worthy of joining, nor can join with you. What you

C:12.7 come of giving up your need to do so. Your desire for certainty is  part of your resistance to any ideas that seem to be about change.
C:12.8 alone will all the others follow—and through no effort on your  part at all. And even this one change is not a change at all, for it
C:12.19 the places in which it would occur or the people that would be  part of it. In short, the external aspects of the life.
C:13.5 courage, and from another like gentleness, and while this is all  part of what you are encouraged to feel, it is simply asked that you

C:14.2 Is it not true that you have made an enemy of creation? Do you feel  part of it and at one with all within it? If not, you have made
C:14.2 different from all the rest, and in this seeking proclaim that one  part of creation is better than another part. You thus seek to
C:14.2 seeking proclaim that one part of creation is better than another  part. You thus seek to fragment creation as you have fragmented your
C:14.16 meant to occur. Although you know not your purpose, at least a  part of you believes that this is true, for there must be some reason
C:14.18 to say that you think otherwise. Yet, since only what you know is  part of your universe, do you not see that it depends on you, and if
C:17.2 that you would fill as your own Self is held for you by another  part of your consciousness that has never left it. It is the reunion
C:17.14 is added to the space in the universe that is yours and has become  part of the whole along with you. All that has proceeded from fear is

C:19.17 Still, oneness and unity go together, the unity of creation being  part of the oneness of God, and the oneness of God part of the unity
C:19.17 of creation being part of the oneness of God, and the oneness of God  part of the unity of creation. A mind trained by separation can have
C:19.24 you have made between mind and heart are their ability to keep one  part of yourself blameless. Whatever happens, your divided notion of

C:22.10 Further, it is the  part of you through which everything within your world passes and
C:22.23 This intimacy itself will allow you to see your “self” as an integral  part of all that exists within your world rather than as the small
C:22.23 You will find that you fulfill a grand purpose, and have a wonderful  part to play in a grand design. You will not feel cheated by losing
C:25.14 invulnerability can only be claimed by those who recognize it as  part of their true identity. Invulnerability will then serve you and
C:25.22 for change that does not necessarily require action on your  part, you will feel some relief.

C:29.11 While this is neither good nor bad, this attitude of life as toil is  part of your rebellion against ideas of service. You have no time for
C:30.3 little children, and inhale the world around you in order to make it  part of your Self. Be like the little children, and learn in order to
C:31.8 countries, various cities, but all of you rely on the one Earth as  part of a sameness and interdependence you accept. You are aware that
C:31.8 the cosmos too is something that the Earth and all on the Earth are  part of. You believe fully that you are inseparable from the Earth,
C:31.9 nature of perfection and your own Self as Creator and Created. Being  part of the whole that is your known universe has made you and no
C:31.11 able, in your limited view of yourself, to come up with. There is a  part of you that knows that you have higher thoughts, and knows that
C:31.14 The ego is that  part of yourself that clings to the idea of separation, and thus
C:31.26 you are. What you have learned in truth resides in your mind as a  part of you. What you have not yet learned from awaits your learning
T1:2.14 The sunset is a gift of God. It is what it is. This is the first  part of this example.
T1:2.15 The second  part is its reception. A gift has been given. What is your response?
T1:2.16 The sunset is  part of your human experience. In the lower order of that experience
T1:2.17 is acknowledged. It is a fact of your existence as a human being, a  part of the natural world, a gift of the Creator. Secondly, it is
T1:2.21 God is to be present as a divine being having a human experience. No  part of being is negated. All senses and feelings of the human being

T2:1.1 becomes instead something regarded as an ability and later as simply  part of your identity. This is what we are going to explore in this
T2:4.2 You are not only  part of creation, but as has been said many times, a creator, and as
T2:4.15 until it is no longer needed. Anything continuous and ongoing is  part of creation. Thus the very act of undoing old patterns is an act
T2:6.5 abilities within time. You believe that your treasures only become  part of your identity when you have passed beyond the time it takes

T3:1.6 unreal reality. It is as if you have been an actor upon a stage, the  part you play as unreal as the setting on which you play it. Yet
T3:1.6 on which you play it. Yet there is a “you” who has been playing the  part, a part that, while developed under the ego’s direction, still
T3:1.6 you play it. Yet there is a “you” who has been playing the part, a  part that, while developed under the ego’s direction, still allowed

T3:3.9 Whether you think such thoughts consciously or not, there is a  part of you that still believes you are not good enough to be the
T3:5.4 walls to ash or a flood that would wash them away, was as much a  part of the survival mechanism of your real Self as was the rush to
T3:5.4 survival mechanism of your real Self as was the rush to rebuild a  part of the survival mechanism of the ego-self.
T3:6.5 or unrecognizable. But it has become, like the ego, so much a  part of your reality that it must, like the ego, be consciously left

T3:18.2 Observation, the ability to observe what the Self expresses, was  part of the original choice for physical form. The word observance

T4:4.8 Changing form is  part of the pattern of life-everlasting. The change in the form you
T4:4.8 spoken of as that of elevation of the personal self, is a natural  part of the pattern of life-everlasting. It is long over-due. It is
T4:5.7 Just as your finger is but one  part of your body, without being separate from your body, or other
T4:5.7 being separate from your body, or other than your body, you are  part of the body of Christ, the body of energy that makes up the
T4:6.1 Now I ask you to consider the  part you play in the creation of this all-encompassing consciousness.
T4:6.1 you alive or dead, asleep or awake, literally or figuratively, is a  part of the consciousness that is Christ-consciousness. This is why
T4:8.12 rebellion against the constraints of your nature in form thus became  part of the pattern of creation because it was the created’s
T4:12.4 you will realize that it also addresses you individually and as  part of the collectivity of the whole. This dialogue will, however,
T4:12.16 rebellion was the effect of the cause of learned wisdom. It became  part of the nature of the human experience by becoming so consistent
T4:12.27 was known to you in the pattern of that design, a pattern that was  part of the pattern of your thoughts, even after the ego came to rule
T4:12.27 ego could have succeeded in becoming the ruler of the personal self.  Part of this design and pattern was the freedom of free will.
T4:12.33 of the design or pattern that reveals our lack of separation is  part of the creation that is before us. It will be mutually decided
T4:12.34 Creation of the new has begun. We are an interactive  part of this creative act of a loving Creator. Creation is a
D:2.23 This is the agreement God asks of you, your  part of the shared agreement that will fulfill the promises of your
D:4.11 without accepting that a divine design exists and that you are  part of it. Remember that our goal here is to deny the old and accept
D:4.11 that the universe exists in divine order, and that your life is  part of that divine design.
D:4.15 have accepted as the truth. Some of these systems of thought were  part of the divine pattern. Contrast is one such system. As a
D:4.16 Other systems of thought were not  part of the divine pattern. The ego is one such system. It may seem
D:4.16 systems, built as they were upon patterns now being recreated, are  part of the old.
D:4.29 is the return of wholeness. This return is not selfish on your  part, but magnanimous. It returns wholeness to you and wholeness to
D:4.30 fail. This will not bring suffering but will end suffering. Your  part is to invite it and accept it when it comes. State your
D:6.13 a grand facilitator of the human spirit’s quest for the truth and is  part of what brought you, finally, to the quest to know your Self.
D:7.3 rise or set to separate day into night. Resting and waking will be  part of the same continuum of being.

D:13.11 We come now to the second  part of what we are exploring together here, the idea that what you
D:Day1.21 you. When it occurred within me, it occurred within all. It became  part of the continuing story of creation, of creation acted out
D:Day1.22 The story came after the fact. Thus the fulfillment was always  part of the story of creation. It was always part of you as it was

D:Day3.59 matter of all or nothing. You cannot accept part of one reality and  part of another. You cannot accept, for instance, the compassionate
D:Day4.1 here all the “arguments” that I needed to present in the early  part of this Course just to convince you that you are not alone and
D:Day4.6 The divine design of learning was a given and a natural  part of you, much like breathing. You have no choice about breathing,
D:Day4.54 have to be accepting. Accepting of all that you are. Fear is not a  part of what you are, which is why it cannot remain with you as the
D:Day5.9 as the center of the Self rather than the pump that functions as  part of your body, it will be helpful to have identified this chosen
D:Day5.15 Realize here that although you are now a  part of a community seeking the same goal, the realization, or
D:Day10.17  Part of the difficulty you find in accepting reliance on your Self is
D:Day13.7 you become completely fearless and totally spacious, for fear is  part of the density of form, being a lack of love.

D:Day19.5 their brothers and sisters called to “do,” do not have a specific  part to play in establishing the world in which all are able to be
D:Day25.2 within this stillness, however. As it envelopes you, there is a  part of you that will fight back. If there is nothing new to record,

D:Day28.20 the same continuum as are properties such as hot and cold. They are  part of the same whole that is the constant of all that is whole—

D:Day39.11 behind, are not done away with but only transformed. Relationship is  part of life. Inescapable. Acceptance that our relationship is and
A.24 another’s. It is also not about being selfless. These ideas too are  part of the unlearning of this Course and are to be discouraged.
A.42 will realize that your participation in the world as Who You Are is  part of an on-going dialogue, and that it is an on-going aspect of

D:3.16 As the Self, you are giver and receiver. Your Self is a full  participant in this dialogue. You as the Self are the truth. You as
D:Day8.14 may know that you dislike gossip only because you have been both a  participant and a victim of it. It may still call up feelings of
D:Day10.24 a monologue, but we are having a dialogue in which you are a full  participant. As much of what you read in these dialogues comes from
A.42 You are not a “student” of The Dialogues but a full  participant in The Dialogues. You have entered the final stages of

participate (6)

C:12.21 ability to be more than what it was, except for as the son chose to  participate in it.
T4:12.4 dialogue will, however, be ongoing, and this is your invitation to  participate in this dialogue. No matter where you are, no matter what
D:14.4 your invulnerability in order to be a real explorer, and to fully  participate in the discovery that lies beyond the body and mind, form
D:Day8.9 taking place in a present moment situation, will enable you not to  participate, judge, or appear to accept that which you do not truly
D:Day18.1 to anchoring the new within the web of reality. Still others will  participate in both, following their innate desire to facilitate the
D:Day29.1 be separate. Remember that you have already realized the ability to  participate in two levels of experience simultaneously and that

participated (2)

C:18.14 now is a choice of participation. In unity, all that you desired was  participated in fully by a mind and heart combined in
D:7.21 Evolution is the time-bound way in which the body has  participated in creation. This is why you have been told that you are

participating (7)

C:8.18 Now that you are standing back from your body,  participating in this experiment to recognize the surface element of
C:10.31 will find yourself, at times that seem to be “against your will,”  participating in it despite your determination not to do so. Once you
C:12.19 vacation when brought to fruition might reshape the life of the one  participating in it, it would not change who that person was, or who
D:6.1 so that you would not forget the purpose of the learning you were  participating in. Eventually your learning reached an end point as
D:6.27 true Self is fully aware of the elevated Self of form and is fully  participating in its experiences and feelings. The elevated Self of
D:Day27.9 The two levels of experience which you have been  participating in are the joint cornerstones for the biggest
D:Day27.14 This is what we move toward as we practice  participating in two levels of experience simultaneously. We practice

participation (9)

C:9.41 glory. You run the race as long as you can and, win or lose, your  participation in the race was but the required offering to the idol
C:10.26 as the sense of fun that prompted it, will come without the body’s  participation.
C:12.22 Thus, the son’s  participation in the idea of separation seemed to bring about a
C:12.22 destiny different than that which had already been written. Yet this  participation could not but proceed from the original idea and could
C:18.14 in relationship to its creator. All that remains now is a choice of  participation. In unity, all that you desired was participated in
C:24.4 with life. This engagement is a promise, a commitment. It requires  participation, involvement, attention, being present. These are the
C:25.2 serving and being served by love. Devotion is a particular type of  participation. It cannot be faked. But it can be practiced.
C:25.15 Involvement flows from  participation and engagement. While it may conjure up notions of
A.42 and live as Who You Are in the world. You will realize that your  participation in the world as Who You Are is part of an on-going

C:P.39 If you cannot see yourself “other than” as man or woman living in a  particular place in a particular time, you cannot see your Self. Thus
C:P.39 “other than” as man or woman living in a particular place in a  particular time, you cannot see your Self. Thus Jesus comes to you
C:1.12 to us in several ways. By this I do not mean that there are not  particular objects of your affection. This is not the love of which

C:8.18 existence, you are perhaps more aware than ever before of being in a  particular place and time. As you stand back and observe your body,
C:14.30 In your world love has no meaning unless it is attached to a  particular thing. And as soon as love is attached to a particular,
C:14.30 attached to a particular thing. And as soon as love is attached to a  particular, love’s opposite is brought into existence. While you
C:21.2 grasp its meaning or the meaning of eternity. This is because, as a  particular being, you are time-bound. You can realize the eternal
C:21.2 form. Your being is far beyond your imagined reliance on the  particular. The particular is about parts and parts are all you see.

D:Day10.21 can be joined. That you, as man or woman, existing in this  particular time and space, can join with Christ-consciousness. You
D:Day10.28 Let’s continue with this idea a while longer as you consider a  particular person you fondly remember from life and how you have
D:Day14.9 never about escape or rejection. Pass-through is about releasing the  particular while maintaining the relationship. It is what happens in
D:Day18.2 the world without. Christ-consciousness is God within you, your  particular manifestation of God and relationship with the God within.
D:Day37.7 Because you believe you are separate, you created God as a  particular and separate being.
D:Day37.9 have been as intent as you have been on your idea of a separate and  particular God is that you want to believe that there is a
D:Day37.13 This truth, however, has escaped you. So you have been being the  particular self you have “known” or perceived yourself to be—the

C:19.21 You need not go in search of it, and in truth, cannot, for the  past does not abide in you. What you need rather do is strive for a
C:21.7 meaning in different ways you will not find peace. You have, in the  past, accepted these different interpretations as natural. You see
C:23.4 side of the country, separated by distance, or previous choices, or  past hurts, and yet a relationship continues.
C:23.12 similar to those which you term induction and deduction. In the  past, exercises have most often begun with an alteration of beliefs

C:29.26 of giving and receiving. All your worry over the future and the  past is but a worry about the return of gifts given. What gift of
C:29.26 of gifts given. What gift of opportunity did you not accept in the  past, might you not recognize in the future? What gift of fortune,
C:29.26 truly realized, that all gifts come but once and are forever? The  past nor the future matter not. All is available in the here and now
C:29.27 exists, but in the present. Can you replace your attention to the  past and future with an attention to the present?
C:30.4 as an instruction that relates to time. You think of present time,  past time, future time. We have spoken of these modes of keeping time
C:31.15 from who you truly are. On the one hand, you think that you are your  past, your shame, your guilt; on the other that you are your future,
C:31.26 Your  past has nothing to do with the truth about who you are, except in
T1:2.7 Your only recourse to this situation in the  past was focus. You thus applied your thoughts to learning subjects

T1:9.15 have placed your highest value and are thus most vulnerable. In the  past your response would have been to protect and use that which you
T1:10.10 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 of
T2:4.10 of your thoughts and feelings. A second step is willingness to move  past both ambiguity and conflict to union.
T2:4.12 that peace to what you feel called to do. This is not about the  past and all those things that at one time or another you thought
T2:5.3 Such a call signals an end to learning from the lessons of the  past and a beginning of learning from the new. This Course itself is

T3:1.11 self of the future. The personal self you presented to others in the  past was a chosen self and never a whole self as evidenced by the
T3:1.11 variety of selves you saw yourself to be. The personal self of the  past was a self of roles, each one as learned as that which an actor
T3:1.11 in one role and a friend in another, than you did in defining a  past self, a present self and a future self. The greatest distinction
T3:1.13 undone. This is atonement. We work now to correct the errors of the  past in the present, the only place where such work can be done. We
T3:3.5 blame could be rightly placed. Your depression was blamed on the  past. Even your successes were often claimed to be at the expense of
T3:4.1 tenets you can become good. It gives no credence and no blame to any  past cause for your depression, anxiety, meanness, illness or
T3:5.1 to be feared. Yet it is this fear of emptiness that has, in the  past, made those who have experienced it rush to find the easiest and
T3:5.3 things you have brought to yourself for they have been the only way  past the ego’s guarded gate.
T3:8.4 comprised of the one identity you now hold or the identity of many  past lives, the identity you hold in this time and this place still
T3:8.5 a suffering for which you see no rationale. Those who believe in  past lives have also often adopted beliefs regarding choice and
T3:8.5 suffering were made for some greater good or to repay debts of the  past. The only choice that has been made is that of attachment to the
T3:9.5 of many who came before you but the time of such work, for you, is  past. Many remain to shake the walls of illusion. Few stand beyond it
T3:10.6 that all lessons are gifts. What you have struggled to learn in the  past you have struggled with only because you did not realize the
T3:10.7 Not one situation coming to you now will be a repeat of the  past. How can it be when the past was lived in the house of illusion
T3:10.7 to you now will be a repeat of the past. How can it be when the  past was lived in the house of illusion and the present is lived in
T3:10.7 realized. You have passed through your time of unlearning what the  past but seemed to teach you. Now, while life may seem much unchanged
T3:10.10 This feeling will remain only as long as you remember your  past uncertainty. Uncertainty, like all the rest of the ego’s thought
T3:10.10 Thus you are called, as well, to forget the uncertainty of the  past.
T3:10.11 of certainty. Realize that this is how you have learned in the  past and that all that is from the past is what you are being called
T3:10.11 is how you have learned in the past and that all that is from the  past is what you are being called to forget. Thus when uncertainty
T3:10.11 you need but remind yourself that the time for uncertainty is  past. Uncertainty will not now come to teach you lessons you have
T3:10.11 you have already learned but will only visit you as an echo from the  past. It is a habit, a pattern of the old thought system. All you
T3:14.11 choice to explore the why behind it or to look for remedies for the  past. The choice now is whether you want suffering to continue or
T3:14.12 are allowed to do so. A time-bound consciousness that hangs onto the  past as if it were the truth, allows not correction to take place.
T3:14.12 as if it were the truth, allows not correction to take place. The  past is no more and neither the present nor the future can be built
T3:14.13 must be total to be at all. Can you see why you cannot hang onto the  past? The new cannot have historical precedents. This is why you have
T3:14.13 to is a life so new that you cannot even imagine it. Imagine not the  past and make for yourself no cause to prolong it. The past is but a
T3:14.13 not the past and make for yourself no cause to prolong it. The  past is but a starting point for the future. Just as we talked of the
T3:14.13 of all that proceeds from the idea of blame, so too is it with the  past. Like a story yet to be written, that which follows the first
T3:15.1 relationship of marriage have had occasion to choose to forgive the  past and begin again to build a new relationship. Others, in a
T3:15.1 Others, in a similar relationship, might have chosen to let the  past go and enter into new relationships. Parents have welcomed home
T3:15.3 concerning the relationship, a set of criteria based upon the  past that is most often what prevents new beginnings from truly being
T3:15.4 are offered or considered “in spite of” circumstances of the  past that would seem to make them foolish. There is always some
T3:15.4 contingent upon whom they have represented themselves to be in the  past.
T3:15.5 can approach each day with faith while keeping fresh memories of  past abuse or humiliation in the hopes that they will discourage a
T3:15.6 Everyone believes they carry the baggage of the  past, not only their own but that of all the special relationships in
T3:15.7 up the idea that this core or center has been represented by the  past. You must forget the idea that the future cannot be different
T3:15.7 must forget the idea that the future cannot be different than the  past.
T3:15.11 learn the truth through the same methods that have been used in the  past to learn illusion. This Course teaches that love cannot be
T3:15.14 why you cannot approach this new beginning as you have those of the  past. What will assist you most, as the translation of the old
T3:15.17 still the same being that you have represented yourself to be in the  past, you will not be living by the truth but by illusion.
T3:19.11 form in a new way, you can still see that your actions of the  past represented who you believed yourself to be. Thus those
T3:19.14 Just think of how many saints and miracles you have heard of in the  past without being moved to believe that they mean anything at all
T4:1.3 that some are not chosen now and that many were not chosen in the  past.
T4:1.13 this excitement grow, your loyalty to your race, species, and the  past, hinders your excitement. If what you are beginning to believe
T4:1.13 you as failures? Has the seed of the future lain dormant in the  past? Could it have been activated hundreds or thousands of years
T4:1.16 come to live by the truth. It is in this way that the truth of the  past still lives and that the illusion of the past never was.
T4:1.16 that the truth of the past still lives and that the illusion of the  past never was.
T4:1.23 and more obscure. Some have yearned for a return to days not long  past, days during which distinctions between right and wrong did seem
T4:2.14 It is difficult for you, because of the patterns of the  past, to believe that you are chosen to be the pioneers into a new
T4:2.15 Your awareness of the Self that you are now was not present in the  past, but you can truly now, with the devotion of the observant, see
T4:2.30 to see bodies and events moving through your days as you have in the  past. And yet your vision has already changed, although you are not

T4:8.4 us dwell again, for just a moment before we let this dwelling in the  past go forever, on what has “gone wrong” with God’s expression of
T4:8.17 is fast approaching. Coming to know through learning will be of the  past as soon as Christ-consciousness is sustainable and you begin to
T4:9.1 comes to an end. It comes to an end here and now as we move  past study and learning to observation, vision, and revelation.

T4:10.14 future. When you build upon what you can learn you build upon the  past and create not the future but an extension of the past. You who

T4:12.10 All you must remember now is that the time of learning is  past. While you are still encountering concerns and questions, you

D:8.10 of the Self. Thus where you have desired to express yourself in the  past is very likely linked to the natural ability or talent you did
D:12.15 as soon as the truth came into your mind, how seldom in the  past you have been sure of anything. You may have been amazed at this

T3:22.8 closed is the observation of what is. This will relate to the future  pattern of creating that we will speak of more in the next Treatise.
T3:22.15 but that you also might not. Realize that this game of chance is a  pattern of the old thought system that needs to be replaced by
T4:2.22 you separated yourself from relationship with the wholeness of the  pattern of creation. You have believed in God and perhaps in some
T4:2.22 God, or the possibility that your life is a direct experience of the  pattern of unity or oneness that is creation.
T4:2.23 Think of this denial now, for it is still evident in the  pattern of your thinking. We have spoken of this within the text of A
T4:3.2 to do with what cannot be elevated. Vision has to do with the divine  pattern, the unity that binds all living things. Observation is the
T4:3.2 all living things. Observation is the means of seeing this binding  pattern in physical form.
T4:4.1 Everywhere within your world you see the  pattern of life-everlasting. Where there is a pattern of
T4:4.1 your world you see the pattern of life-everlasting. Where there is a  pattern of life-everlasting, there is everlasting life. Means and end
T4:4.2 The  pattern of life-everlasting is one of changing form. It is one that

T4:4.2 was a day of rest spoken of. Creation balanced with rest is the  pattern that has been taken to extremes within your world. You think
T4:4.7 creation. Like begets like. Life begets life. Thus is revealed the  pattern of life-everlasting.
T4:4.8 Changing form is part of the  pattern of life-everlasting. The change in the form you now occupy,
T4:4.8 as that of elevation of the personal self, is a natural part of the  pattern of life-everlasting. It is long over-due. It is long over-due
T4:8.11 you rebelled against God’s original design, the design that is the  pattern of creation. Yet your rebellion was not with God, although
T4:8.12 the constraints of your nature in form thus became part of the  pattern of creation because it was the created’s response. It was
T4:12.20 though you are abiding now in the state of Christ-consciousness, the  pattern of the old thoughts will continue until they are replaced by
T4:12.20 of the old thoughts will continue until they are replaced by a new  pattern. That self-doubt arises in your thought patterns will not
T4:12.21 you share in unity with God. You will be the co-creator of the new  pattern of consciousness that is sharing in unity and relationship,
T4:12.21 in unity and relationship, as you were once the co-creator of the  pattern of consciousness that was learning.
T4:12.24 You now exist within a shared consciousness. The  pattern of a shared consciousness is one of sharing in unity and
T4:12.24 is one of sharing in unity and relationship. There is no  pattern within it for learning (which is individual), for individual
T4:12.27 and what we are speaking of when we talk of patterns. There was a  pattern to the process of learning that was shared by all learners
T4:12.27 inherent to your natures. The means were different for each, but the  pattern was the same. There was an overall design that ensured
T4:12.27 ensured optimal learning and that design was known to you in the  pattern of that design, a pattern that was part of the pattern of
T4:12.27 and that design was known to you in the pattern of that design, a  pattern that was part of the pattern of your thoughts, even after the
T4:12.27 to you in the pattern of that design, a pattern that was part of the  pattern of your thoughts, even after the ego came to rule your
T4:12.27 even after the ego came to rule your thought system. Without this  pattern, the ego could have succeeded in becoming the ruler of the
T4:12.27 in becoming the ruler of the personal self. Part of this design and  pattern was the freedom of free will.
T4:12.28 Free will continues in the  pattern of Christ-consciousness. Love continues. The individual or
T4:12.28 appropriate to the time of learning does not continue. Thus the new  pattern is one of creation in relationship and unity rather than
T4:12.33 and space no longer separate us, and the creation of the design or  pattern that reveals our lack of separation is part of the creation
D:1.3 the personal self. As long as you “see” such visions, you “see” the  pattern of the personal self going forth much as it did before. You

D:2.1 the work of replacing the old patterns of learning with the new  pattern of acceptance.
D:2.4 Patterns are both learned systems and systems of design. The  pattern of learning was a pattern of divine design, created in unity
D:2.4 learned systems and systems of design. The pattern of learning was a  pattern of divine design, created in unity and cooperation to enable
D:2.4 created in unity and cooperation to enable the return to unity. This  pattern has achieved its desired end and so is no longer needed nor
D:2.4 end and so is no longer needed nor appropriate. While it was once a  pattern whose design was perfect for the desired end, continuation of
D:2.4 whose design was perfect for the desired end, continuation of this  pattern will but interfere with your full acceptance of who you are
D:2.5 An example of a  pattern whose design was perfect for the desired end is that of
D:2.11 If you will examine this  pattern of what you have believed “works for you,” you will find that
D:2.11 “works for you,” you will find that you believe that each and every  pattern will work in one instance and not in another and that you
D:2.11 or outcome in one instance would tend to be seen as a “successful  pattern,” and would be repeated until such a time as the pattern
D:2.11 “successful pattern,” and would be repeated until such a time as the  pattern failed to achieve the successful grade or outcome in another
D:2.12 concept of trial and error. No sure results are counted on. When a  pattern of thought or behavior has been found to work in more cases
D:2.12 in more cases than not, it is clung to as a “sure thing”—a proven  pattern or way.
D:2.14 desired outcomes. Either way, control is seen as a powerful  pattern.
D:2.18 system that is not foolproof is based on a faulty design, a faulty  pattern. Your misperceptions of the world have allowed for the
D:2.19 to deal fairly with a hostile environment and then to develop a  pattern based on what was learned so that learning would not need to
D:2.20 just tell me what that new way is!” You would say, “Teach me the new  pattern and I will put it into effect.”
D:2.21 What this points out is a  pattern in itself. It is a pattern of reaction rather than cause. It
D:2.21 What this points out is a pattern in itself. It is a  pattern of reaction rather than cause. It is a pattern of looking
D:2.21 in itself. It is a pattern of reaction rather than cause. It is a  pattern of looking without and wondering what to do about what you
D:2.21 without and wondering what to do about what you see rather than a  pattern of changing what you see by looking within.
D:4.12 to the stem of a plant to the workings of the human brain, a divine  pattern is evident and should not be beyond your belief. Despite the
D:4.12 in what you see, think, and feel, there is but one external divine  pattern that created the observable world, and only one internal
D:4.12 that created the observable world, and only one internal divine  pattern that created the internal world. The internal divine pattern
D:4.12 divine pattern that created the internal world. The internal divine  pattern was that of learning.
D:4.13 now entering. Thus far, we are merely working together to create a  pattern of acceptance to replace the pattern of learning.
D:4.13 working together to create a pattern of acceptance to replace the  pattern of learning.
D:4.14 In such a way of thinking, one would take the internal thought  pattern, enhance it with the external pattern, and by seeing the
D:4.14 take the internal thought pattern, enhance it with the external  pattern, and by seeing the unity and cooperation of all, understand
D:4.15 the truth. Some of these systems of thought were part of the divine  pattern. Contrast is one such system. As a learning being, you
D:4.16 Other systems of thought were not part of the divine  pattern. The ego is one such system. It may seem peculiar to think of
D:4.16 falsely believed to be yourself. From this one externalized thought  pattern came most of your false ideas, ideas that made it difficult
D:4.18 has been freed. Let us simply create a new structure around the new  pattern of acceptance, a structure that will provide you with the
D:4.24 “act” of acceptance rather than learning. Turn to this as the new  pattern and to the thought system of giving and receiving as one. Let
D:5.5 example that illustrates how one aspect of what was created in the  pattern of learning, while not being seen in the way it was intended,
D:6.14 new. For in this time of revelation, discovery is the new divine  pattern that will replace the “thought” systems we have spoken of. To
D:6.24 We have talked of but one replacement for the  pattern of learning—the pattern of acceptance. What might the body
D:6.24 have talked of but one replacement for the pattern of learning—the  pattern of acceptance. What might the body be called to accept? This
D:7.15 to be ready to accept revelation works hand in hand with the new  pattern of discovery, but discovery is less time bound. Let me
D:9.4 now, when you have learned all that you are in need of learning, the  pattern, even of your wholeheartedness, remains one of thought. This
D:9.4 pattern, even of your wholeheartedness, remains one of thought. This  pattern is what the new patterns of acceptance and discovery that we
D:9.5 Thought is a practice and a  pattern of the separated and thus learning self. When it was said
D:10.1 ways of knowing that come to you, and through you, outside of the  pattern of learning.
D:10.7 always existed. When put into practice and allowed to replace the  pattern of learning, this way of discovery will be a constant coming
D:12.11 The first is that thinking, with or without the ego, is a  pattern of the separated self and does not serve you. The way in
D:12.11 the ego ruled or may seem only minimally improved, but it is the  pattern, not the ego, that is still with you. The second point is
D:17.13 your wholeheartedness, as well as your desire, has moved beyond the  pattern of thought.
D:Day2.3 your mistakes and poor choices have been reconciled. You can see the  pattern of your life as clearly now as if a masterful biography had
D:Day3.14 you no longer think in such a way, they are there in the learned  pattern and you know this too. They are what prevent you from
D:Day3.14 unable to replace, in application, the false with the true, the  pattern of the false remains.
D:Day3.24 This is the way fears operate. They operate in the  pattern of the ego, a pattern that was learned, a pattern that was

D:Day4.5 learning has not been a choice. Both as divine design and as a  pattern of the thought system of the ego, learning has been with you
D:Day4.5 design of the time of learning is being recreated, the ceaseless  pattern of learning remains.
D:Day5.19 to desire specifics. This is because you are still entrenched in the  pattern of learning, as your earnest effort to leave effort behind
D:Day5.23 to teach or learn “how to” heal must be thwarted, for if not, the  pattern of learning will remain. This is why there have always seemed
D:Day7.5 You must realize here that the  pattern of learning is now all that is left that can be degenerating
D:Day7.5 not one of support but one of effort. You must accept, now, that the  pattern of learning is an extension of fear and be willing and
D:Day7.5 extension of fear and be willing and vigilant in replacing it with a  pattern of acceptance. I say this because so many of you still do not
D:Day8.21 will prevent you from “reacting” to feelings out of your previous  pattern.
D:Day9.32 just completed a monumental learning challenge and so your natural  pattern would be to keep going now, to use the momentum of this
D:Day9.33 This  pattern will be easily replaced, however, as your acceptance of
D:Day18.7 The truth represented by Jesus and Mary was represented as a visual  pattern that would aide understanding of the invisible. This is what

D:Day18.10 or elevation of the self of form. You are called to demonstrate this  pattern. The choice is to demonstrate this pattern through
D:Day18.10 to demonstrate this pattern. The choice is to demonstrate this  pattern through interaction with the world, or through incarnation
D:Day18.11 You are called to demonstrate this new visual  pattern. What is meant here by the word demonstrate, is to show your
D:Day19.10 are asked to become. This is an act of incarnation, and is a new  pattern, a pattern of what can be imagined being made real, not
D:Day19.10 to become. This is an act of incarnation, and is a new pattern, a  pattern of what can be imagined being made real, not through doing,
D:Day19.13 by holding open this door to creation. They, in truth, create a new  pattern and begin to weave it into the web of reality, anchoring it
D:Day21.2 This was true even within the  pattern of learning you have been so familiar with, for in order to

C:25.24 When you are guided to act in ways that are contrary to usual  patterns of action you have taken in the past, you will often meet
T2:4.15 means is that you are still in need of unlearning, of undoing old  patterns of thought. This is atonement and it is continuous and
T2:4.15 and ongoing is part of creation. Thus the very act of undoing old  patterns is an act of creation. As the old is undone, a vacuum is not
T2:5.6 the remnants of learning from the past, the final breaking of old  patterns. They may seem to signal difficult times, but they are times
T2:7.10 of this Course, but what will prevent you from following the  patterns of old as you go out into the world with your desire to

T3:14.8 the new thought system. If you but let go the old, and with it the  patterns of behavior caused by fear, the new will reveal to you all

T4:2.13 certain of your Self and in your uncertainty, still subject to the  patterns of thought of the old. Many of these patterns do not concern
T4:2.13 still subject to the patterns of thought of the old. Many of these  patterns do not concern me for they will fall away of themselves as
T4:2.14 It is difficult for you, because of the  patterns of the past, to believe that you are chosen to be the
T4:12.10 way to do so is to, for a short while, be vigilant of your thought  patterns so that you eradicate the idea of learning in separation and
T4:12.20 replaced by a new pattern. That self-doubt arises in your thought  patterns will not mean that you have cause for self-doubt. You have

T4:12.23 you, as a being of singular consciousness, could learn the thought  patterns of a singular consciousness because it was a finite

T4:12.30 new patterns that reveal the design. This new design, and the new  patterns that will be helpful to you in its sustainability, are what

D:2.3 The  patterns of the new will begin to arise naturally when you deny the
D:2.3 patterns of the new will begin to arise naturally when you deny the  patterns of the old. As you have been told, you now “know what you
D:2.3 must understand that you do know, and you will know, as soon as the  patterns of old have been denied. Denial is the correct word here,
D:2.3 word here, for I do not want you combating or resisting the old  patterns. Patterns are not in quite the same category as the false

D:2.4  Patterns are both learned systems and systems of design. The pattern
D:2.9 It is because the  patterns of old have at times provided you with a false certainty
D:2.13 are often those matters that are beyond your personal control and so  patterns of personal control have become particularly entrenched.
D:2.15 Although they may not have seemed so, all  patterns have had to do with learning because you were, as a

D:2.16 Systems are the result of your attempts to externalize  patterns. Patterns are contained within. Looking at the patterns you

D:2.16 attempted to externalize can help you to understand the nature of  patterns.
D:2.19 would not need to be endlessly repeated. Now these systems and  patterns have become so entrenched that no new learning is seen as
D:2.19 is seen as possible or desirable even though the systems and  patterns are known not to work. In truth, no new learning or new
D:2.19 work. In truth, no new learning or new systems based on the learning  patterns of old will work. Thus we begin anew.
D:2.22 is where you find the power of creation, the power to create the  patterns of the new. Looking within is not an attempt to find the
D:3.9 self in union with all, are the ideas that will allow new  patterns to emerge and the design of the future to be created. These
D:3.20 being? Are your systems life-giving and life-supporting? The  patterns of the new will create only such life-giving and
D:3.20 only such life-giving and life-supporting systems—as long as the  patterns of the new are accepted and lived with your full awareness.
D:4.9 you may recall, are the result of your attempts to externalize the  patterns contained within. Patterns are both of learning and of
D:4.9 of your attempts to externalize the patterns contained within.  Patterns are both of learning and of design.
D:4.12 Divine  patterns are the patterns that made your existence in form possible
D:4.12 Divine patterns are the  patterns that made your existence in form possible as well as the
D:4.12 patterns that made your existence in form possible as well as the  patterns that have made your return to your true identity possible.
D:4.12 that have made your return to your true identity possible. These  patterns are both external and internal. External divine patterns
D:4.12 These patterns are both external and internal. External divine  patterns include the observable forms that make up your world,
D:4.13 The two  patterns, the internal and the external, were created together to
D:4.13 together to exist in a complementary fashion. Both of these divine  patterns are being newly recreated and we will talk much more of them
D:4.16 the learning loop. Obviously these systems, built as they were upon  patterns now being recreated, are part of the old.
D:4.17 Externalized  patterns, or systems, were also built from the systems of thought
D:4.18 That divine universe, our divine existence, is now recreating the  patterns that served the time of learning. What was learned in the
D:4.28 all, draws from the well of divine design. You need not turn to old  patterns or systems to accomplish your release. You can only turn to
D:4.28 release. You can only turn to what is, to what is left now that the  patterns and systems of learning are no longer.
D:5.12 Love and the loving  patterns given in the time of learning are all that exist in all you
D:5.12 are all that exist in all you see. But what now will become of these  patterns that are no longer needed as your learning and that of those
D:5.21 with your being. You will wonder how, if you are done learning, the  patterns of learning will change to help you embrace the acceptance
D:7.16 join with what you observe until your vision is released from old  patterns and guides you more truly.
D:8.8 it was done. But you do not yet know how to rid yourself of former  patterns. Your mind, while it no longer wants to cling to known
D:8.8 patterns. Your mind, while it no longer wants to cling to known  patterns, is confronted with them constantly. Thus your heart still
D:9.4 remains one of thought. This pattern is what the new  patterns of acceptance and discovery that we are beginning to lay out
D:9.6 But your reality has changed, and with that change, new  patterns apply. This does not mean that the truth has changed, but
D:12.12 to become aware and comfortable with the idea that, released of old  patterns, the self will join with unity more and more frequently,
D:12.13 One of the primary ideas that will assist you in leaving  patterns of thinking behind is the idea that thought as we are
D:15.1 principles that govern creation. These principles are like unto the  patterns that were created for your time of learning and that will be
D:15.1 of learning and that will be applied anew to the creation of new  patterns for the new time that is upon us.
D:16.16 It encompasses all of your former ideas about yourself, all of the  patterns of the time of learning, all of the moments in which you
D:Day2.2 You have let go the ego, re-viewed your life, unlearned previous  patterns, and now see the difference between the image you hold of
D:Day10.12 it before than to do something completely new. This is because old  patterns or habits must be done away with before achievement of a new
D:Day14.8 occurs because there are no blocks or boundaries, no holding  patterns, no mental interferences.
D:Day17.5 There have always been individuals who challenged the predominant  patterns of learning because of the strength of their connection to
D:Day21.2 If it did not do so, learning did not occur. In traditional learning  patterns, the wisdom, guidance, or information sought moved from a
D:Day28.16 Most of what is not the truth has been identified as old thought  patterns. This is all that the notion of a giver and a receiver is:
D:Day28.17 Thought  patterns exist within thought systems that have been externalized and

T1:10.1 Now let me address the issue of the  peace you have been experiencing as well as your reactions to this
T1:10.1 peace you have been experiencing as well as your reactions to this  peace. It is so foreign to each of you that you can’t quite imagine
T1:10.1 that it is what you are supposed to be feeling. There is a core of  peace at the center of your Self now and the issues that you choose
T1:10.1 the issues that you choose to deal with will not affect that core of  peace at all. While you may find this almost disturbing, you will not
T1:10.1 this almost disturbing, you will not go to extremes to break this  peace.

T1:10.10 events that hold such sway over you that you would choose not the  Peace of God. But look past what you have remembered to what was
T1:10.10 was truly there. No moment of true learning ever arrived without the  Peace of God for without the Peace of God no true learning is
T1:10.10 true learning ever arrived without the Peace of God for without the  Peace of God no true learning is possible.
T1:10.11 you can look forward to rather than back upon if you but choose the  Peace of God.
T1:10.12 further lessons are needed? What quiet knowing cannot come to you in  peace? Why would you believe you can learn from the turmoil of
T1:10.12 you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in  peace eternal?
T1:10.13 let the memory of the truth return to you now and you will see that  peace is all you have sought learning to attain. If you do not pause
T1:10.13 do not pause now and accept that it is here, you will not know the  Peace of God that is your own Self.
T1:10.14  Peace, in whatever way you find it, in whatever expression it takes,
T1:10.14 use to describe it, is your answer to God and God’s answer to you.  Peace is the inheritance I left you. Peace of body, mind and heart.

T1:10.15 one mind, one unity. Thus are we one in a relationship of love and  peace that is our eternal home. Welcome home my brothers and sisters
T2:1.5 you would soon return to your old ideas of heaven and see  peace as a state of being for those too weary to fully live. Done
T2:1.6 truly learned, is a state of being in which struggle has ceased and  peace has triumphed over chaos, love has triumphed over fear.
T2:1.7 You may still see but two choices:  peace or struggle. But with such an attitude, you would soon be
T2:1.7 with such an attitude, you would soon be struggling to maintain your  peace. There is another choice, and it lies within.
T2:1.8 may have come to be viewed as a place at which you can arrive. Like  peace, it may feel like a bubble of protection, something that sets

T2:4.9 two sets of thoughts and feelings exist, the only way to come to  peace with them is through an acceptance of ambiguity. While an

T2:4.12 felt the peace of true acceptance are not asked to leave that  peace to go in search of calling but are rather asked to listen from

T2:7.8 Is it not clear how important it is to living in  peace that this pattern be broken? Will you live in peace only until

T3:15.11 teaches that love cannot be learned. I have said here that love,  peace, and truth are interchangeable ideas within the new thought
T3:15.18 hardly empty-handed. The truth goes with you as does the love and  peace of God.
T3:18.6 observe health rather than disease, abundance rather than poverty,  peace rather than conflict, happiness rather than sadness—disease,

T3:1.1 The  personal self exists as the self you present to others. This is the
T3:1.1 as the self you present to others. This is the only way in which the  personal self will continue to exist following the completion and the
T3:1.1 the completion and the integration of this Course. Previously, the  personal self that you presented to others represented an ego-self
T3:1.1 you believed yourself to be. Now the ego has been separated from the  personal self so that you may claim your personal self again and
T3:1.1 has been separated from the personal self so that you may claim your  personal self again and present to others a true representation of
T3:1.4 the truth reveals only illusion and becomes illusion. Thus, as your  personal self becomes a representation of the truth it will become
T3:1.6 I say that you have represented the ego, what I mean is that the  personal self, as represented by your body, while adhering to the
T3:1.8 I began this Treatise by saying that the  personal self exists as the self you present to others and that this
T3:1.8 you present to others and that this is the only way in which the  personal self will now continue to exist. This statement implies and
T3:1.8 This statement implies and acknowledges your previous belief in a  personal self who existed as more than a representation. While when
T3:1.9 coming about has to do with awareness. When you become aware of the  personal self as a representation, you become aware of the Self whom
T3:1.9 self as a representation, you become aware of the Self whom the  personal self is representing. To have believed that the personal
T3:1.9 whom the personal self is representing. To have believed that the  personal self, as a representation of the ego, was who you were, was
T3:1.10 To say that the  personal self will now exist only as the self you present to others
T3:1.10 now exist only as the self you present to others is to say that the  personal self will now cease to be seen as your reality.
T3:1.11 To say that the  personal self has only existed as the self you presented to others in
T3:1.11 quite a different statement and has a totally different meaning. The  personal self you once presented to others as “who you were” was a
T3:1.11 and that the self of the present made up the self of the future. The  personal self you presented to others in the past was a chosen self
T3:1.11 as evidenced by the variety of selves you saw yourself to be. The  personal self of the past was a self of roles, each one as learned as
T3:1.12 has abolished the ego-self and allows us to begin the lessons of the  personal self.
T3:1.13 been unable, without the lessons of this Course, to distinguish the  personal self from the ego-self. There is a danger even now in

T3:2.10 you await is an idea, a remembrance of the original idea about your  personal self.
T3:3.1 Your  personal self is dear to you and dear to me as well. I have always
T3:3.1 you have always been. Here is where you need realize that the  personal self that is dear to you is not your ego-self and never has

T3:8.4 intrinsically tied to the personal self and the experience of the  personal self. Whether you believe the personal self is comprised of
T3:8.4 and the experience of the personal self. Whether you believe the  personal self is comprised of the one identity you now hold or the

T3:11.1 of illusion are aware of the personal self alone and believe the  personal self to be who they are. Further, they believe the personal
T3:11.1 the personal self to be who they are. Further, they believe the  personal self to be the truth of the statement, “I am.”
T3:11.2 they no longer feel the statement of “I am” as a statement of the  personal self or the self alone. For those existing in the House of

T3:11.16 remembered the truth of who you are, you are called to forget the  personal self who would find this cause for righteousness. You are
T3:12.1 the creation of the Self. The Self preceded the establishment of the  personal self.
T3:12.2 You exist within the time of consciousness of the  personal self. Thus we begin our work with the personal self while

T3:12.2 begin our work with the personal self while also realizing that the  personal self is a step in the chain of consciousness. The steps that
T3:12.2 the chain of consciousness. The steps that came before that of the  personal self did not come within time. The creation of time was
T3:12.2 time. The creation of time was simultaneous with the creation of the  personal self. Because the steps that came before that of the
T3:12.2 of the personal self. Because the steps that came before that of the  personal self did not come in time, they are eternal, eternal levels
T3:12.3 remove the time-bound temptations of the human experience of the  personal self.
T3:12.4 cannot be bound by time and be a House of Truth. How then can the  personal self begin to realize the human experience outside of time?
T3:12.4 of time? The answer is thus: by changing the consciousness of the  personal self from a time-bound state of consciousness to an eternal
T3:12.9 became a life of suffering and strife only because the physical or  personal self forgot that it exists in relationship and believed
T3:13.2 so cause you to be aware only of a self of human experience, or a  personal self. While you may still feel a connection to God during
T3:13.2 while your reality remains that of the physical experience and the  personal self. In such times you can conceive only of a God outside
T3:13.14 or images originating from the Self and being represented by the  personal self. It is only in this way that the personal self will be
T3:13.14 represented by the personal self. It is only in this way that the  personal self will be able to represent the Self in truth.
T3:21.6 Your  personal self exists in illusion. It is called a personal self
T3:21.6 Your personal self exists in illusion. It is called a  personal self because it is attached to a person. A person is a being
T3:21.7 The only means for the  personal self and the true Self to exist together is for the truth to
T3:21.10 this Course has disproved. This identity has been seen as your  personal self. Thus your personal self is the only place in which you
T3:21.10 This identity has been seen as your personal self. Thus your  personal self is the only place in which you have experience that can
T3:21.11 things upon which you draw to feel the certainty you feel about your  personal self. You identify yourself as male or female, married or
T3:21.11 Chinese or Lebanese or American, black or white or Indian. Your  personal self may be deeply affected by these things you call
T3:21.12 as often been considered as part of what makes you certain of your  personal self, are the thoughts of your mind, thoughts that while
T3:21.13 things as part of what make up the totality of who you are, of your  personal self.
T3:21.14 So it can be seen that there are several aspects to your  personal self: a historical aspect, an aspect we will call
T3:21.15 yourself or not, they exist. Your world-view, and your view of your  personal self, are inextricably bound together. In other words, the
T3:21.16 understanding or knowing your brothers and sisters, those whose  personal selves and world view cannot help but be different than your
T3:21.17 to accept your true identity even while you retain the form of your  personal self. As your true identity is that of a Self who exists in
T3:21.17 is that of a Self who exists in unity and the identity of your  personal self is that of a self who exists in separation, this would
T3:21.18 Thus, certain things about your  personal self must be accepted as aspects of your form and cease to
T3:21.18 time while you carry observance forward into observance of your  personal self. As was said at the beginning of this Treatise, by the
T3:21.18 Treatise, by the time the learning of this Treatise is complete, the  personal self will continue to exist only as the self you present to
T3:21.20 answer. One is that your certainty regarding the identity of your  personal self will be useful as that certainty is translated to the
T3:21.21 The world is quite simply bigger now and the identities of your  personal selves split by far more than history and far more than the
T3:21.22 seen. What I am saying is that you can remain confident in your  personal self, knowing that your personal self will serve those you
T3:21.22 you can remain confident in your personal self, knowing that your  personal self will serve those you are meant to serve. What you have
T3:21.24 addressed and seen as it relates to the relationship between the  personal self and the Self; the truth and its representation and
T3:22.4 Since your  personal self was always meant to represent the truth of who you are,
T3:22.9 within you. You are ready to be done with the concerns of the  personal self, and your attention has begun to wander from this topic
T3:22.10 the realization will come to you that you are ready to leave the  personal self and the concerns of the personal self behind. You have
T3:22.10 you are ready to leave the personal self and the concerns of the  personal self behind. You have needed to become bored with what has
T3:22.10 has been, tired of the way things were, uninterested in matters of a  personal nature. This very readiness is what I now call your

T3:22.16 upon this personal self with the vision of creation, creating the  personal self anew, seeing within it all that will serve the new, and
T3:22.17 Observe the  personal self with one last act of love and devotion, and in so doing
T3:22.17 one last act of love and devotion, and in so doing transform the  personal self into a representation of the truth. Realize that what
T3:22.17 eyes” observation is really the observation of a Self beyond the  personal self. To call forth observance is to call forth the sight of
T4:1.12 As was said within “A Treatise on the  Personal Self,” even the house of illusion is held within the embrace
T4:1.16 As was said within “A Treatise on the  Personal Self,” all notions of blame must be gone from you. Thus, you

T4:2.10 the definition of observation provided in “A Treatise on the  Personal Self.”
T4:3.2 but not the same. Observation has to do with the elevation of the  personal self. Vision has to do with what cannot be elevated. Vision
T4:3.3 The  personal self is still in need of being elevated—elevated to its
T4:3.4 form. This original intent or cause formed the true nature of the  personal self capable of being observed in relationship. The
T4:3.4 it did not change the original cause, formed a false nature for the  personal self. This displacement of the original intent can be simply
T4:3.9 vision, the vision of love. What is new is the elevation of the  personal self that will be caused by the return of your natural state
T4:3.10 exists within it truly. Observation will allow you to elevate the  personal self to its rightful place within the nature of a world of

T4:4.16 believe that you are mortal is to believe that you must die to the  personal self of form in order to be reborn as a true Self. This is

C:5.9 displaced as to make a mockery of who you are. Love does mark your  place—but in eternity, not here. What you leave behind is never
C:5.22 of which you have conceived. Over all your longing for union you  place this desire to be separate and alone. Your entire resistance to
C:5.32 awaits you as you join with what you see. This awaits you as you  place no judgment on the world, and in so doing join with everything
C:6.2 of it no more, and you will gently let it go and find heaven in its  place.
C:6.17 accomplishment. With peace, accomplishment is achieved in the only  place where it makes any sense to desire it. With your accomplishment
C:6.19 Think about this now—for how could heaven be a separate  place? A piece of geography distinct from all the rest? How could it
C:6.19 and still be what it is: home to God’s beloved son and dwelling  place of God Himself? It is because God is not separate from anything
C:7.21 most predominate in your society. Thus the truth is different in one  place than it is in another and it even appears to be in conflict.
C:7.21 even though you are aware of their instability in time as well as  place, and so you live with constant denial that even what is known
C:8.6 You think of the heart as the  place of feeling, and thus you associate emotions with your heart.
C:8.8 heart, where is love? If these illusions were real there would be no  place for love at all, but love abides where illusion cannot enter.
C:8.10 hidden from you, your recognition that a truth is available in a  place other than on the surface is useful to us now, as is your
C:8.11 You look from separation’s stance rather than from the grace-filled  place of union. Perhaps you are thinking now that if you knew how
C:8.18 you are perhaps more aware than ever before of being in a particular  place and time. As you stand back and observe your body, this is what
C:8.18 your body, this is what you will see: a form moving through time and  place. You may be more aware than ever of its actions and complaints,
C:9.13 labeled this or that often are not content to stay where you would  place them. They seem to betray you, when it is you who betray them
C:9.14 memories trying to reveal the truth to you. They call to you from a  place that you know not. The difficulty is that the only self that is
C:9.14 of denial or contempt. It is your language that gives emotion its  place, one step behind fear, in your battle to control or protect
C:9.21 that you could bring this one in from that dark and dangerous  place. She is cold, and you prepare a fire and give her a warm
C:9.28 than what it is? Have you not seen this kind of distortion take  place within the reality you do see? Is this not the story of the
C:9.30 than that you are using it. You do so out of guilt in an attempt to  place your guilt outside yourself. “My body made me do it” is like
C:9.34 and lay to ruin. The only thing that might succeed in proving your  place as that of royal inheritor would be if you could fix yourself
C:9.38 balance, and try to find something for one part of yourself in one  place and something for another somewhere else. This one fulfills
C:9.41 idolatry tells you that glory is for the few, and so you take your  place in line at the starting gate and make your bid for glory. You

C:9.45 destructive force of such abuse is easily apparent. Again you would  place the blame outside yourself and label drugs, alcohol, tobacco,
C:10.6 Be warned that it will constantly try to interfere as long as you  place any merit in what it tells you.
C:10.21 return impossible and count themselves lucky for not going to the  place from which change would become inevitable.
C:10.23 fear lies beneath the surface, see the advantage of this exercise:  Place your body out in front of yourself where you can be its silent
C:10.32 you. “Come home, come home,” it will sing. You will know there is a  place within yourself where you are missed and longed for and safe
C:11.6 you have made has been shaken now, and you realize you would like to  place your faith elsewhere. You would like to, but you have your
C:11.13 the final line of defense, the site where the final battle will take  place. Before this final battle is reached your willingness to change
C:11.18 obligation. But a dinner party where love is welcomed to take its  place becomes a celebration. Your table becomes an altar to the Lord
C:12.7 the energy required to keep the world of your illusion in its  place, you would understand the rest that will simply come of giving
C:12.12 is not what it was meant to be. On a lovely day and in a lovely  place you can see that creation’s paradise still exists, but nowhere
C:12.21 The Father did not prevent the idea of separation from taking  place, and could not any more than you could prevent an idea from
C:14.3 make yourself inferior, and you are always making for yourself a  place at one of these extremes. And all this effort and conflict
C:14.4 God provided you with a paradise not of this world, a separate  place to honor your specialness and separation from all else that He
C:14.19 is dependent upon you. And no wonder that when you find a respite, a  place of rest and beauty and of love, you want to claim it for your
C:14.19 plot and plan for what they never have the opportunity to put into  place. Still others are more coy in their design, and dress it up to
C:15.12 as well as his birthright and your own. You only need be open to the  place that no specialness can enter, and bid your brother choose for
C:16.10 basis that it uses no judgment! Here you can see the value that you  place on judgment, even to the ridiculous notion that you can judge
C:16.16 Your judgment has not made the world a better  place! If history proves anything, it proves the opposite of what you
C:16.16 make themselves. For all of you here know that judgment is not your  place, and that it belongs to God and God alone. This is firmly
C:17.13 of your body has prepared you for this. Step back now to the  place that has been held for you. You have not lost “your place in
C:17.13 now to the place that has been held for you. You have not lost “your  place in line” because you wandered. It has been held for you by the
C:18.5 This chain I have described helps you to imagine the  place I hold for you, as you held mine when I entered the world in
C:18.6 as a curse, as a punishment from God, or as your home, a dwelling  place that keeps you separate, then you can begin to see it as what
C:18.8 who comprise it, and imagine the life that you experience now taking  place much like that you would see projected on a movie screen. You
C:18.8 you would see projected on a movie screen. You have not left your  place as you view this movie and experience its sights and sounds,
C:19.5 on faith alone. Experience is needed to change your beliefs and to  place your faith securely in them. The first step in leading you to
C:19.12 must learn to see yourself as you see your brothers and sisters, and  place your belief not in differences but in sameness.
C:19.21 past does not abide in you. What you need rather do is strive for a  place of stillness from which what needs review can arise as if it
C:20.10 imaginal, a dream that requires you not to leave your home, your  place of safety and of rest. You are cradled gently while your spirit
C:20.17 people who would as soon do you harm as good. It is but the  place of your interaction with all that lives within you, sharing the
C:20.44 and acting. It will immediately make the world a kinder, gentler  place. And it is only a beginning.
C:21.5 one another might recognize that the other’s “heart is in the right  place.” The “right place” with two people—as with mind and heart—
C:21.5 The “right place” with two people—as with mind and heart—is the  place of no division. The unification of mind and heart that produces
C:22.19 a moment of how you tell a story or report on events that have taken  place within your life. You personalize. You are likely to report on
C:24.3 can be seen as a sign. Let them alert you that unlearning is taking  place. Welcome them as harbingers of this good news. Know that the
C:25.19 This is unlearning taking  place. It may feel frustrating and be tinged with anxiety, anger,
C:25.20 be linked with ego as well. Your personal self will be looking for a  place in which to reside. It will be looking for identity. It will

C:26.19 only that you be open and allow giving and receiving as one to take  place. It asks only that you be unoccupied with the old so that the
C:26.23 the story that is you. Can you not see that you were birthed into a  place in the pattern of God’s creation? Or that you not only can know
C:26.23 Or that you not only can know but have always known of this  place?
C:26.24 This is not a  place of physical form but a place of holiness, an integral place in
C:26.24 This is not a place of physical form but a  place of holiness, an integral place in the pattern that is oneness
C:26.24 is not a place of physical form but a place of holiness, an integral  place in the pattern that is oneness with God. It is a place you have
C:26.24 an integral place in the pattern that is oneness with God. It is a  place you have never left but that you long for, believing that you
C:26.25 of God, you grew simultaneously with God’s thought. You knew your  place in the pattern of creation from the outset. A full life is
C:28.4 Few are chosen to be prophets, and the plethora of testimony taking  place is brought about by innocence more so than by wisdom. This

C:29.21 to make choices is an act that comes from an entirely different  place than decision-making. Claiming is akin to prayer and is but an
C:31.6 know that if you had to consciously cause these functions to take  place, you would surely die, for managing the workings of the body
C:31.12 How the ego becomes dislodged matters not. What matters is where you  place your devotion.
C:31.33 receiving being one in truth. Giving and receiving are both taking  place, both at the same time, as are seeking and finding, once you
T1:1.9 ego-mind had to be circumvented in order for true learning to take  place. This is what A Course of Love accomplished. This learning was
T1:4.21 but response. Response was what was required in the first  place and your inability to respond need not be repeated. You are
T1:5.6 real to you. The lucky among you have made of this in-between  place an adventure, and are happy in your seeking. You do not care to
T1:5.7 in-between you have created between all and nothing. This in-between  place is your comfort zone and, although you feel compelled to push
T1:6.2 How is this revelation to take  place? It will begin by learning the art of thought as the act of
T1:8.3 truth. There was only one truth at the time the event or change took  place, and there is only one truth in time or eternity regardless of
T1:9.15 or the intellect. The perceived attack will have entered at the  place where you have placed your highest value and are thus most
T2:1.4 of perfection, and you may find in this a somewhat peaceful resting  place to dwell in for a time. You may find that despite having
T2:1.5 This resting  place is indeed hallowed ground and an earned respite, a demarcation
T2:1.5 But it is not the end that is sought. No matter how peaceful this  place of rest may at first seem, it will soon become stagnant and
T2:1.5 seem, it will soon become stagnant and unsatisfying. Left in such a  place without further instruction, you would soon return to your old
T2:1.6 This  place is not life but neither is it death, for even death is not an
T2:1.6 but neither is it death, for even death is not an eternal resting  place in the sense that you have imagined it. Even rest, once truly
T2:1.6 Even rest, once truly learned, is simply rest. It is not a resting  place, a place to stop along the journey of life any more than it is
T2:1.6 once truly learned, is simply rest. It is not a resting place, a  place to stop along the journey of life any more than it is a place
T2:1.6 a place to 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
T2:1.8 of this Course, unity, like rest, may have come to be viewed as a  place at which you can arrive. Like peace, it may feel like a bubble
T2:1.8 seems to reign there. You must realize that you think in terms of  place because you think in terms of form. Thus even I have often used
T2:1.8 you think in terms of form. Thus even I have often used the idea of  place as a teaching aid. But you are ready now to begin to think
T2:1.9 that you hang upon your wall. The time of painting becomes a  place. A room or studio is envisioned in which all the tools of the
T2:1.10 Thought “forms” are the product of the separation. Unity is not a  place or a thing but the realm of the one heart and one mind; the
T2:3.2 What I refer to so often here as being within, as if “within” is a  place in which something resides, is unity and it is the place where
T2:3.2 is a place in which something resides, is unity and it is the  place where being resides. It is the place or realm of one heart and
T2:3.2 resides, is unity and it is the place where being resides. It is the  place or realm of one heart and one mind. It is the place where
T2:3.2 It is the place or realm of one heart and one mind. It is the  place where everything already exists fully realized. It is like a
T2:4.9 the conflict of two opposing sets of thoughts and feelings to the  place of unity.
T2:4.13 where there is no division between who you are and what you do. This  place of no division is the place of unity.
T2:4.13 who you are and what you do. This place of no division is the  place of unity.
T2:4.14 accepting who you are. Accepting where you are, as if it is a static  place at which you have arrived, is not the goal that has been set.
T2:6.1 alerts you to the treasures that lie within. There is no time in the  place we are calling within and your heart knows not of time even
T2:6.1 not of time even while it adheres to the rules of time you would  place upon yourself. Cease adhering to the rules of time and see how
T2:6.2 If you can begin now to think without the barriers of time you but  place upon your thinking, you will advance this process and more
T2:6.6 will be in unity. There is only what is. Thus the limits you would  place on the concept of something being what it is, must be part of
T2:7.7 be tempted to believe that giving and receiving as one is not taking  place. Your previous pattern of behavior will be quick to assert
T2:7.19 does mean that you bring the thoughts and feelings that arise to the  place within your heart that has been prepared for them. You do not
T2:7.19 bring them first to your Self, to the Self joined in unity at the  place of your heart. From this place you learn to discriminate, to
T2:7.19 to the Self joined in unity at the place of your heart. From this  place you learn to discriminate, to separate the false from the true,
T2:7.19 from the true, for your ego thoughts cannot long abide in the holy  place of your heart. Then, with truth and illusion separated, you
T2:8.6 from home for home is who you are, a “place” you carry within you, a  place that is you. This is the home of unity.
T2:9.4 to having a reaction to this meeting of a need as if it takes  place apart from you, or from outside of you. You assign the meeting
T2:13.4 the time of separation and the beginning of the time of unity taking  place around you, practice the beliefs that have been put forth in
T2:13.5 another in gratitude. This is the attitude of the wholehearted, the  place from which all calls are sounded and received, the place where
T2:13.5 the place from which all calls are sounded and received, the  place where the true thinking of those united in mind and heart
T3:1.13 work now to correct the errors of the past in the present, the only  place where such work can be done. We work with what we have, a form
T3:4.7 You can dismantle the ego and build another in its  place and this has at times been done in the individual with great
T3:6.6 bitterness itself behind. Bring bitterness no longer to the dwelling  place of Christ and we will seal the place of its entrance with the
T3:6.6 no longer to the dwelling place of Christ and we will seal the  place of its entrance with the sweetness of love so that bitterness
T3:8.4 of many past lives, the identity you hold in this time and this  place still believes in its own history and that of those who came
T3:9.3 beyond its walls. You might think, at first, that you are in a  place so foreign that you must immediately begin to learn again,
T3:10.3 The first thing I ask you to forget is your need to find a  place where blame can be placed. You who have been waiting to get to
T3:10.3 yourself is as senseless as blaming others and your inclination to  place blame upon yourself must be given up as well. When it is said
T3:10.5 space you will long to fill. This act of consciously choosing not to  place blame will short-circuit the many thoughts that you would
T3:10.5 I offer it not as a replacement, what you will find will come in the  place of blame is an idea of acceptance of what is, an idea that is
T3:10.7 to you to become aware of the total change that has, in truth, taken  place.
T3:10.8 reactions to people and situations and much like forgetting to  place blame.
T3:11.3 of Truth represent an awareness of a new reality, a new dwelling  place.
T3:11.4 in the House of Truth does not represent a structure but a dwelling  place. The word house as used in the house of illusion does represent
T3:11.4 self from all that it would fear. The House of Truth is the dwelling  place of those who no longer live in fear and thus have no need for a
T3:13.6 This is a simple  place to start because each of you are tempted to hang on to this
T3:13.7 I say this is a simple  place to start because you can put this new idea into practice today
T3:14.12 onto the past as if it were the truth, allows not correction to take  place. The past is no more and neither the present nor the future can
T3:15.1 others. For most mature adults, some form of new beginning has taken  place or been offered. Often, those within the relationship of
T3:15.2 types of new beginnings and all that would hamper them from taking  place.
T3:15.9 that, like all others that you have offered or attempted, will take  place in relationship. The difference is that this new beginning will
T3:15.9 in relationship. The difference is that this new beginning will take  place in holy, rather than special, relationship.
T3:16.14 be good, to help others, and to struggle to make the world a better  place, fall into this category. Your notions of wanting to protect or
T3:16.17 Accept one “part” or tenet of the truth and see the reverse take  place. See how quickly the thought system of the truth builds upon
T3:17.5 true, your true Self had to be appealed to for this learning to take  place.
T3:18.3 It is thus from observable form that the final learning will take  place. This is the perfect example of using what you have made for a
T3:20.2 is but a measurement of, it rightly follows that learning can take  place at a slow pace or a fast pace. There is no more or less to
T3:21.10 been seen as your personal self. Thus your personal self is the only  place in which you have experience that can now be used for a new
T3:22.13 both of yourself and of what you desire, is an act that takes  place in the here and now that is and brings what is into existence.
T3:22.13 does not appear to exist with you in the here and now is not, and  place it in a separate category, a category that only exists in the
T4:1.23 of your ancestors despite the advances of learning that have taken  place, it is a different world. You have not known the secret
T4:3.10 will allow you to elevate the personal self to its rightful  place within the nature of a world of love.
T4:10.5 the greatest teacher. Studying places the power of the teacher in a  place other than that of love. Relationship happens as it happens.
T4:10.13 of learning will change the world. They will make the world a better  place and see many of their students advance beyond what they can
D:1.11 Help is here. Be what you have been called to be. Open your dwelling  place to your true Self, your true identity. Imagine this opening and
D:4.19 Thus without limiting this freedom at all, let us simply speak of a  place and a way to begin to experience it, and of a place and a way
D:4.19 speak of a place and a way to begin to experience it, and of a  place and a way to begin to create the new.
D:4.20 This  place and this way begins at the prison doors, begins, as we said
D:4.23 I remind you that there is no authority to whom you can turn. But in  place of that “outside” authority, I give you your own authority, an
D:4.26 release is at hand and it will come from your own authority and no  place else. It is up to you to accept that your release is possible,
D:6.1 you that the time of “teaching” like the time of “learning” had its  place as well as its methods.
D:6.9 impossible to repopulate the earth afterwards even if it had taken  place as described.
D:7.4 Experiences of form take  place in time because experience, too, was designed for learning. Now
D:7.8 of time and space. It may still exist in a particular time and  place, but this is simply the nature of one aspect of what you are.
D:7.13 This discovery can only take  place in the reality of love.
D:7.16 Observation takes  place in time. Even while you have been called to observe what is,
D:8.2 Imagine this first as a  place where no learning is needed. Ah, you might say now, this you
D:8.7 what you now think of as your natural talents or abilities, the  place or Source of your natural talents or abilities is a place from
D:8.7 the place or Source of your natural talents or abilities is a  place from which to start building your awareness of what is
D:8.10 The self and the expression of self that comes from any  place other than wholeheartedness is not the true Self or the true
D:8.12 yearning for union with that from which it is divided. Enter the  place of no division, the place of shared consciousness, the place of
D:8.12 that from which it is divided. Enter the place of no division, the  place of shared consciousness, the place of wholeness. The natural
D:8.12 the place of no division, the place of shared consciousness, the  place of wholeness. The natural ability that you recognize as a given
D:9.4 you are in one way or another all of your life without reaching the  place of fulfillment you have sought. Even now, when you have learned
D:11.17 ways that lead to many paths of seeking, but illusion can provide no  place in which the seeking ends and the truth is found.
D:11.18 In unity! Unity is where the heart and mind are joined. Unity is the  place from which the expression, the right-minded action of the
D:12.4 capable of hearing the same language, you truly began to enter the  place of unity, to take the step outside of the dot of the body.
D:12.13 coming to know of the Self joined in unity, enters you through the  place of mind and heart joined in wholeheartedness at the center of
D:12.13 and heart joined in wholeheartedness at the center of yourself, a  place that has nothing to do with the body. That you listen, hear,
D:14.10 for learning is incremental and discovery is not. Learning took  place in parts in an effort to lead to wholeness. Discovery comes to
D:15.22 of the highest mountain. These dialogues might be seen as taking  place there, with the guide and the team of climbers who accompanied
D:16.4 in which the unified principles of creation are seen to be taking  place as separate steps. This is so because of the condition of time.
D:17.24 him home. To where he started from. In story form, this takes  place with movement. Years are spent traveling many paths and many
D:Day1.3 my words, and these words are what have brought you here, not to a  place but to an ascended state. Without your acceptance of who I am,
D:Day1.14 I now would like to lead you beyond, the world would be a different  place. Have I not called you to a new time in which the conditions of
D:Day1.14 are banished, rejected, and a new world of love accepted in their  place?
D:Day2.11 or a flood. Yes, this was different, but this difference does not  place these actions beyond the idea of acceptance.
D:Day3.17 in the case of those “born” to money. Thus this is a good  place to start, since inheritance is that of which we speak. Let’s be
D:Day3.26 Love. But beyond learning is where we now stand. We now stand at the  place of the rejection of learning—the rejection of all you learned.
D:Day3.39 When you have felt the reality of union, you have felt the  place in which no want exists. You felt this through the
D:Day3.42 which your desires are responded to. This does not mean that the  place of unity is a place that does not interact with the place of
D:Day3.42 are responded to. This does not mean that the place of unity is a  place that does not interact with the place of form. It is
D:Day3.42 that the place of unity is a place that does not interact with the  place of form. It is interacting with the world of form through you.
D:Day3.44 you are being asked to do here, is to open the self of form to the  place of unity, thus allowing this divine flow of union into the
D:Day4.13 free from learning, a state free from death. To be told that such a  place exists is no more comforting than consoling words if you do not
D:Day4.13 than consoling words if you do not feel you have access to this  place. It is like being told that all of the treasure you might
D:Day4.25 truth. On your own, only illusion can be learned, for your starting  place is illusion.
D:Day4.26 treasure and the key to the treasure. Union is both access and the  place to which you desire access. As all that exists in truth, union
D:Day4.35 You might think of the mountain top as symbolic of a  place close to God. If God was once seen as a figure in heaven, and
D:Day4.35 to God. If God was once seen as a figure in heaven, and heaven as a  place beyond the clouds, then the mountain top was symbolic of
D:Day4.35 the mountain top was symbolic of proximity. It was symbolic of a  place from which God was almost touchable. As if one could raise ones
D:Day4.35 to all that lies beyond time and space, to all that exists in the  place of unity.
D:Day4.42 Smile with me now, as you think of yourself in this elevated  place. You are still the self of form despite the truth that you are
D:Day4.42 self of form despite the truth that you are literally with me in a  place of high elevation. Is this what you choose to remain? A self of
D:Day4.43 transformed into the elevated Self of form? Do you want to know this  place of access and carry it within you, or do you only wish the
D:Day4.45 what A Course of Love taught you so that you could be taken to this  place and tempted to leave behind the temptations of the human
D:Day5.3 does not mean that these experiences come from your mind or from a  place just beyond your physical concept of the mind but, since you

D:Day6.7 late in its development. But at some point, the sharing will take  place, and the reactions of those with whom the music is shared will
D:Day6.7 touches will be put on the piece. Some collaboration might take  place to get it just right. By the time the artist has completed the
D:Day6.19 Learning takes the student away from “normal” life and creates a  place for teaching and only calls this place elevated. Awareness,
D:Day6.19 “normal” life and creates a place for teaching and only calls this  place elevated. Awareness, acceptance, and discovery cannot occur in
D:Day6.19 elevated. Awareness, acceptance, and discovery cannot occur in a  place set apart from “normal” life. Believe me when I tell you that
D:Day6.19 phrase here. It is not the other way around. You cannot find a  place outside of yourself that will allow for the elevation of which
D:Day6.19 this. It is only the relationship we are developing in this elevated  place within that will bring to your full realization and
D:Day6.20 to change my focus, to engage me in debate, to lure me from the  place of elevation I knew I had attained. The temptations of the
D:Day6.20 externally removed from them cannot remove them. Only a created  place within can do so.
D:Day6.21 This  place within is what we are creating here. It is a truly elevated
D:Day6.21 place within is what we are creating here. It is a truly elevated  place. It is as real as a mountain top, in fact much more real. Were

D:Day8.4 labeling good or bad; only then can you deal with anything from a  place of peace.
D:Day8.9 However, a simple acceptance that you do not like the gossip taking  place in a present moment situation, will enable you not to

D:16.12 a cause for disappointment. Perhaps you thought you were beyond this  point of becoming. And yet, as you have begun your practice of

D:Day2.13 I could give thousands of examples here, but the  point is that we are not looking for degrees of wrong-actions, or
D:Day3.5 So our first  point of discussion in the realm of anger is that no matter where
D:Day3.30 health while at the same time dreading the disease that may at any  point take it from you, those of you who have money see it in the
D:Day3.40 an association in regards to entry, you would likely say the entry  point was the mind. This is, in a sense, true, as wholeheartedness is
D:Day3.40 do not advance our discussion now and can be returned to later. The  point here is your “concept” or idea about what you have gained from
D:Day3.43 Do you not see? You are the entry  point, the only channel through which all that is available in unity
D:Day4.58 Here is the beginning  point from which we continue to burn away the remnants of attachment
D:Day5.1 A  point of access will no longer be needed once full entry is attained,
D:Day5.1 Even though it will not be permanently needed, however, this  point of access will remain crucial as long as you maintain rather
D:Day5.1 as long as you maintain rather than sustain the state of unity. This  point of access will thus now be discussed, both as an initial entry
D:Day5.1 point of access will thus now be discussed, both as an initial entry  point and as a continued entry point so that it is available to you
D:Day5.1 discussed, both as an initial entry point and as a continued entry  point so that it is available to you until it is no longer needed.
D:Day5.2 For each of you this access  point will in truth be the same, but perhaps quite different in the
D:Day5.2 you use in order to enter it. For those of you who have felt the  point of entry to be the mind in experiences already registered,
D:Day5.3 not your body, the idea of what originates “within” coming from a  point beyond the body is not now too unbelievable to contemplate.
D:Day5.4 Thus we begin with what feels natural to you. We give access a focal  point in the realm of form.
D:Day5.5 This focal  point must be of your own choosing. Your point of access may be your
D:Day5.5 This focal point must be of your own choosing. Your  point of access may be your head, or a place just above or to the
D:Day5.5 them givens and choose what feels most natural to you as a focal  point for your focus on access.
D:Day5.9 your body, it will be helpful to have identified this chosen access  point for unity even while remembering it is not of the body alone.
D:Day5.13 While you do not consider yourself as having or needing an “access”  point to love, and while you may treat love still as an individual
D:Day5.16 A “healer” for instance, might, thus, feel her access  point as being the hands and express what is gained through unity by
D:Day5.21 more specifically to our focus on access. Wherever your chosen  point of access lies, imagine now the needle that was discussed as
D:Day5.21 the onion in the Course chapter “The Intersection,” and imagine the  point of intersection connecting with your chosen access point.
D:Day5.21 imagine the point of intersection connecting with your chosen access  point. Imagine this now, not as a needle but as the wisdom you seek.
D:Day5.21 thinking and feeling that we used the onion to illustrate, but as a  point of entry and pass-through. What comes of unity enters you and
D:Day5.25 awareness of breath that comes from the focus of meditation. A focus  point is a point of convergence. A focal point is a point of

D:Day5.25 A focus point is a point of convergence. A focal point is a  point of intersection that gives rise to a clear image.
D:Day5.26 here is that of pass-through. Although we have spoken of this focal  point as an entryway, this does not imply that something that is not

D:Day6.4 and expression coming together. We have further spoken of your  point of access to unity as one of convergence, intersection, and
D:Day6.7 that inspires the creator to see these words as lyrics. At some  point after this gestation within the mind and heart, the artist puts
D:Day6.7 step of the process, or only late in its development. But at some  point, the sharing will take place, and the reactions of those with

D:Day6.18 life. Changes you feel called to make are not discouraged here. The  point being made is simply that removal from life is not possible or
D:Day6.22 The  point here, however, is this: Quit trying to remove yourself from
D:Day6.30 or think you learn, the qualities that will allow this. This is the  point of movement, being, and expression coming together. The point
D:Day6.30 is the point of movement, being, and expression coming together. The  point of convergence, intersection, and pass-through. This is it!
D:Day8.3 But here is the  point that needs clearing up. This is not about acceptance of what

C:16.24 God wants no sacrifice from you, yet when you give away your  power you make of yourself a sacrificial lamb, an offering onto God

T2:11.7 understanding that all that is real is shared does the ego lose its  power. The ego was made from the belief in separation and all that

T4:2.17 I repeat, this is the  power to observe what is. It is not about observing a potential for

D:Day1.11 Many people now are discovering the power of healing. Some think this  power comes from one source and some from another. You may think
D:Day1.11 one source and some from another. You may think that, as long as the  power is called forth, it matters not the name by which it is called.
D:Day1.11 many choices. You may think these choices matter not, but only the  power of the healer. Some of you may see this example as an example
D:Day1.11 not need to accept me. You may claim that you understand that this  power is of God, whether it be the power of granting life to grow
D:Day1.11 that you understand that this power is of God, whether it be the  power of granting life to grow within the womb, or the power of
D:Day1.11 it be the power of granting life to grow within the womb, or the  power of giving new life to a limb withered or broken. You may wonder
D:Day1.11 withered or broken. You may wonder why it should matter whether this  power be called Buddha or Allah, Muhammad or God.
D:Day1.12 It matters not. The  power of God is not what is being spoken of here. It is our power
D:Day1.12 not. The power of God is not what is being spoken of here. It is our  power that is being spoken of here. The power of the god man. The

D:Day8.24 Let me repeat a passage from that Treatise here, a passage about the  power to observe what is. “It is not about observing a potential for
D:Day8.24 way that has been shown to you. It is about observing what is. The  power to observe what is, is what will keep you unified with your

D:Day9.20 If you do not realize your freedom, you will not realize your  power.
D:Day9.33 be your confidence. Only these combined abilities will release your  power.
D:Day10.1  Power is the ability to be cause and effect. It is the ability to
D:Day10.1 cause and effect. It is the ability to harness the cause and effect  power of love. It is a quality of form as well as a quality of union.
D:Day10.1 well as a quality of union. Form is the ultimate expression of the  power of creation. The power of creation, harnessed by form in the
D:Day10.1 union. Form is the ultimate expression of the power of creation. The  power of creation, harnessed by form in the service of form is the
D:Day10.1 form in the service of form is the next step in the expansion of the  power of creation. It is the power of the elevated Self of form.
D:Day10.1 the next step in the expansion of the power of creation. It is the  power of the elevated Self of form.
D:Day10.2 the confidence of the self of form? Certainty is knowing that this  power exists. Confidence is the expression of your reliance upon it.
D:Day10.2 is the expression of your reliance upon it. To rely on your own  power is to rely on the connection that exists between the self of
D:Day10.24 for it is a key to your understanding of your Self and your  power. This dialogue, as one-sided as it may seem when presented in
D:Day10.31 love. As a man, I took a stand for the powerless and called them to  power. I am still doing so. Not because any of you are powerless but
D:Day10.31 because any of you are powerless but because you do not know your  power. If there is one thing associated with my life more so than any
D:Day10.31 than any other, it was this. I was an advocate for all to know their  power. Do you think that my advocacy was a social statement for the
D:Day10.32 that I called for during my life. It is the call to embrace your  power.
D:Day10.33 they lead you, remember one thing only. Remember to embrace your  power. The power of love is the cause and effect that will change the
D:Day10.33 you, remember one thing only. Remember to embrace your power. The  power of love is the cause and effect that will change the world by
D:Day10.34 The  power you must come to rely upon is the power of your own Self to

D:Day10.34 your own Self to create and express the cause and effect that is the  power of love.
D:Day10.35 might—has been shown to be unfounded, a new source of reliable  power is finally sought with the tenacity with which these other
D:Day10.35 sought with the tenacity with which these other sources of seeming  power have been sought. This is what has occurred. This is the time
D:Day10.37 them along with you. You are means and end. It is within your  power to be saviors of the world. It is from within that your power
D:Day10.37 your power to be saviors of the world. It is from within that your  power will save the world.
D:Day10.38 anything, your happiness, your peace, and your acceptance of the  power that will cause these things to come to be. Yet I know you and
D:Day14.6 have called your “own,” you are now given the task of claiming your  power as your own. All that is within your power is within your
D:Day14.6 the task of claiming your power as your own. All that is within your  power is within your power. Your power is the power of the many and
D:Day14.6 your power as your own. All that is within your power is within your  power. Your power is the power of the many and the one that exist in
D:Day14.6 your own. All that is within your power is within your power. Your  power is the power of the many and the one that exist in wholeness
D:Day14.6 that is within your power is within your power. Your power is the  power of the many and the one that exist in wholeness within the

D:Day17.8 given components are necessary for wholeness. Representation of the  power of Christ-consciousness in human form was necessary to complete
D:Day18.5 light. Those who accept completion of the way of Jesus accept their  power to be generators of light in darkness without judging or
D:Day18.5 in darkness without judging or expelling darkness. They accept their  power to represent both the known and the unknown and to reveal the
D:Day19.5 to live as who they are within the world. Until they realize the  power of reflection, they wonder why they, unlike their brothers and
D:Day20.9 of the One Self can be made known, then you are the source and the  power of coming to know and making known.
D:Day24.3 Potential is that which exists. It exists as the  power and energy, the spirit within you. It does not await. It simply
D:Day24.3 you. It does not await. It simply is. It can remain as the untapped  power of transformation, or it can be released. The choice is and is
D:Day24.3 or it can be released. The choice is and is not yours. This  power is a force of nature that exists, not separately from you, but
D:Day24.8 of all the potential that exists. An activated will releases the  power that is potential. Remember potential is that which exists,
D:Day24.9 within you. This merging of will and potential is the birth of your  power and the birth of the new.
D:Day26.1 It has been said that you are the source and the  power of coming to know and making known. It naturally follows, then,
D:Day28.18 the experience of separation possible, and experience is where the  power of transformation lies. This transformation will, however, take
D:Day29.1 joy and sadness, sickness and health, all cease to have the limited  power that all such concepts have formerly held. When they cease to

D:Day29.3 remembered wholehearted desire—the source of your power. Now this  power is available to assist you in accomplishing the final joining,

D:Day32.13 are seen as little more than pass-through situations in which the  power of God passed through men and women to other men and women.
D:Day32.19 the same? Would this answer your questions concerning God’s great  power when compared to your own? Could you see that God’s power stems
D:Day32.19 great power when compared to your own? Could you see that God’s  power stems from His relationship to everything rather than from His
D:Day32.19 This is the easiest way to say this, if not quite accurate. Being is  power. But being, like oneness, cannot know itself without
D:Day32.20 God is the being and the relationship. You are capable of all the  power of God’s being but you are powerful only as God is powerful—
D:Day32.20 Because you are in a state of limited relationship, you have limited  power. This is the difference between God and man. This difference,
D:Day33.1 As we begin to speak of  power, we must return to the initial idea put forth in “A Treatise on
D:Day33.1 on the New”: That all are chosen. To embrace an idea of some having  power while others remain powerless is to embrace an idea laden with
D:Day33.1 remain powerless is to embrace an idea laden with conflict. The  power of God exists within everyone because all are one in being with
D:Day33.1 within everyone because all are one in being with God. And yet this  power cannot be used. It can only serve. What does it serve? The
D:Day33.12 Being is  power. Relationship is powerful. In other words, relationship is the
D:Day33.12 is powerful. In other words, relationship is the expression of  power—all the different expressions of power. In the time of Jesus,
D:Day33.12 is the expression of power—all the different expressions of  power. In the time of Jesus, the powerful were seen as being blessed
D:Day33.12 since all are powerful only in relationship, your relationship to  power must be realized. Those who are powerful have realized their
D:Day33.12 realized. Those who are powerful have realized their relationship to  power. Those who see themselves as powerless have not realized their
D:Day33.12 see themselves as powerless have not realized their relationship to  power. They have not made it real and so it has not served them.
D:Day33.13 no one can exist outside of relationship and relationship is where  power is expressed, everyone does have a relationship with power.
D:Day33.13 is where power is expressed, everyone does have a relationship with  power. Power is one in being with each and every one of us. Every
D:Day33.13 power is expressed, everyone does have a relationship with power.  Power is one in being with each and every one of us. Every single

D:Day33.13 claimed some type of power for yourself, some means of exerting that  power, which is the same as saying some means of individuating the

D:Day33.14 This is the power of being. The  power to individuate the Self. The power to be who you are. This is
D:Day33.14 This is the power of being. The power to individuate the Self. The  power to be who you are. This is power and the source of power. This
D:Day33.14 power to individuate the Self. The power to be who you are. This is  power and the source of power. This is the force of creation, the

D:Day33.15 But again, despite that we each hold the  power of creation within us, it is only in relationship that it is
D:Day33.15 and everyone all of the time, is to realize the full extent of your  power. You cannot realize that you are in relationship with
D:Day33.15 and everyone all of the time and retain the desire to use your  power. This is impossible. The realization that you are in

D:Day34.8 many have said no to this request. Realize the importance and the  power of your willingness to say yes.
D:Day35.6 said before, the mountain came to you. You will thus always have the  power to call upon the mountain top experience and the view of

D:Day35.18 you have made and what you can create when you have accepted your  power and begin to create in unity and relationship.

D:Day33.14 This is the  power of being. The power to individuate the Self. The power to be

D:Day1.12 power that is being spoken of here. The power of the god man. The  power of God brought into form. The power of who we are rather than

D:Day32.13 are seen as little more than pass-through situations in which the  power of God passed through men and women to other men and women.

D:Day34.7 If you experience your being as powerless, you are negating the  power of God who is one in being with you.

T1:4.3 in Miracles began with a definition of miracles. Both are the same.  Prayer and the art of thought are the same. This should serve to make
T1:6.2 place? It will begin by learning the art of thought as the act of  prayer. We have spoken already of memory here, and have presented the
T1:6.2 and recollecting that are involved with memory as acts of creation.  Prayer is but reproducing and recollecting a divine memory and divine
T1:6.2 cannot help but produce a divine outcome. Said in another way,  prayer reproduces the truth and allows the truth to exist as it is.
T1:6.2 prayer reproduces the truth and allows the truth to exist as it is.  Prayer does this because it is the act of consciously choosing union.
T1:6.3 Thus  prayer must be redefined as the act of consciously choosing union.
T1:6.3 union. With this definition, you can see how your life can become a  prayer. This does not negate the fact that a prayer is also a
T1:6.3 your life can become a prayer. This does not negate the fact that a  prayer is also a constant dialogue of asking, being answered, and

T1:6.4 concepts of prayer or of reaching God through the intercession of  prayer as if God were separate from you and accessible only through a

T1:6.5 To use  prayer only as a means of reaching out to a god seen as separate is
T1:6.5 as separate is to attempt to use what cannot be used. Such ideas of  prayer have had credence because this reaching out does at least
T1:6.5 recognize that there is something to reach out to. Such ideas of  prayer have long been opening doors for those who are ready to walk

T1:6.6 To pray out of fear is not to pray at all, because such  prayer chooses not the union that is the prerequisite. To pray out of
T1:6.6 of lack for what is seen as missing or desired. In contrast, true  prayer, formed in union, is a means of creating, recollecting, or
T2:11.15 against the ego-self. This is highly akin to your former notion of  prayer and assumes that there is something real that you need defense
T2:12.7 The power of thought and the power of  prayer, once aligned, call constantly upon the same power of

D:6.11 of the Native Americans who thank the sun for rising each day is a  prayer that acknowledges that the sun may not rise. This is not a

D:Day1.2 spoken of here. Acceptance is. Acceptance is not belief, it is not  prayer. I care not in what form of the truth you believe, nor to what
D:Day8.5 externals, but of internals. We are not talking of the old adage or  prayer that calls you to “accept what you cannot change” but of
D:Day37.16 heaven and earth, and even some possibility of communication through  prayer or other experiential means. But this is still a relationship

D:3.8 with you into the new. This is the first of many ideas that were  previously taught that I would like to talk of in a new way. These

T3:20.18 of admission is their willingness to leave the old behind. This is a  price they must freely give and it cannot be extorted from them, not

C:7.5 thought constitutes a thought system in and of itself, for it is the  primary thought by which you live your life. Your effort goes into

C:3.10 believe your mind is in control of what it thinks. You believe in a  process of input and output, all completely human and scientifically
C:3.14 of the brain, for we bypass it now and send it no information to  process, no data for it to compute. The only change in thinking you
