God is the Mind with which I think

Today’s idea holds the key to what your real thoughts are. They are nothing that you think you think, just as nothing that you think you see is related to vision in any way. There is no relationship between what is real and what you think is real. Nothing that you think are your real thoughts resemble your real thoughts in any respect. Nothing that you think you see bears any resemblance to what vision will show you.

Do you realize what a miracle it is that you have A Course In Miracles in your hand? It is not just any book, it is the key to your salvation. Read today’s lesson and the words simply work in you. Do you read them like a regular book or do you take the time to let each word sink in? Read today’s lesson in an unhurried manner, say the words out loud, and feel them working in you. They are indeed miraculous.

You think with the Mind of God. Therefore you share your thoughts with Him, as He shares His with you. They are the same thoughts, because they are thought by the same Mind. To share is to make alike, or to make one. Nor do the thoughts you think with the Mind of God leave your mind, because thoughts do not leave their source. Therefore, your thoughts are in the Mind of God, as you are. They are in your mind as well, where He is. As you are part of His Mind, so are your thoughts part of His Mind.

In your mind are the thoughts of God. They are waiting for you. Under all the senseless musings of your mind, all the things you think you know and understand, each thought that follows another in a long line of meaningless stories, lie the thoughts you share with God. They are holy.

Where, then, are your real thoughts? Today we will attempt to reach them. We will have to look for them in your mind, because that is where they are. They must still be there, because they cannot have left their source. What is thought by the Mind of God is eternal, being part of creation.

It’s amazing when you really look at it. Behind all the drama’s are the thoughts you think with God. Beyond all the gossip lie the thoughts of God. Every thought of pain, sickness and death simply vanishes when you apply today’s lesson.

God is the Mind with which I think.
My real thoughts are in my mind. I would like to find them.

Under all the senseless thoughts and mad ideas with which you have cluttered up your mind are the thoughts that you thought with God in the beginning. They are there in your mind now, completely unchanged. They will always be in your mind, exactly as they always were. Everything you have thought since then will change, but the Foundation on which it rests is wholly changeless.

Today’s lesson offers you every incentive to quiet your mind and be in the experience of the thoughts you think with God. It’s simple, it’s easy, it changes everything, and it is all happening in you. The Kingdom of Heaven lies in you. It is not a state you will find later in time, when you die, or some strange idea like that. Swear not to die, you holy Son of God. You make a bargain that you can’t keep. Death is not real, it is simply an idea. And like all the thoughts which have no reality, it simply vanishes before the truth of God

God is the Mind with which I think.

There is nothing my holiness cannot do

The lesson for today states the infinite possibilities of your holiness. You are unlimited, free in God, unbound by anyone or anything.

Your holiness reverses all the laws of the world. It is beyond every restriction of time, space, distance and limits of any kind. Your holiness is totally unlimited in its power because it establishes you as a Son of God, at one with the Mind of his Creator.

Read this and feel the peace of God in you. You are safe, you are taken care of. This has nothing to do with your identity in the world, nothing to do with your body. You are mind and pure mind, you are one with God. You can travel out into the universe right now, because you are unlimited.

Through your holiness the power of God is made manifest. Through your holiness the power of God is made available.  And there is nothing the power of God cannot do. Your holiness, then, can remove all pain, can end all sorrow, and can solve all problems. It can do so in connection with yourself and with anyone else. It is equal in its power to help anyone because it is equal in its power to save anyone.

Today is a day of stillness, the quiet recognition of the power of God in you. This is your holiness. This is what you are. You are unlimited, complete and healed and whole, and everything is healed through your recognition of your holiness. It is not limited by time and space, your holiness affects you and everyone you meet or even think of.

If you are holy, so is everything God created.  You are holy because all things He created are holy. And all things He created are holy because you are. In today’s exercises, we will apply the power of your holiness to all problems, difficulties or suffering in any form that you happen to think of, in yourself or in someone else. We will make no distinctions because there are no distinctions.

Practice today’s idea because your salvation lies in it. This is simply the recognition of the power of your mind, which has been so long underestimated by you. Fortunately time is not real and there is only here and now. In this moment you can recognize your holiness, in this moment you can remember that there is nothing that your holiness cannot do. Apply today’s lesson and watch things shift in you and around you. They are all connected. Nothing is static, unless you keep it static in your own mind. Every problem will simply disappear in the nothingness that it is, every thought of pain is effortlessly replaced with a thought of joy. You are as God created you, you are unlimited, and today you recognize this.

There is nothing my holiness cannot do.

My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy

Today’s idea does not describe the way you see yourself now. It does, however, describe what vision will show you. It is difficult for anyone who thinks he is in this world to believe this of himself. Yet the reason he thinks he is in this world is because he does not believe it.

My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.

Say today’s lesson out loud and you may think it sounds arrogant. You may think that in no way can you declare yourself as being very holy. But the fact is that you are created by God, in His likeness. The declaration of today’s lesson states the truth about yourself. Your mind is part of God’s, because what is created by God is of God. And you are very holy, because you are as God created you.

The idea for today presents a very different view of yourself. By establishing your Source it establishes your Identity, and it describes you as you must really be in truth.

It’s a beautiful thing. You have confused cause and effect and now it is reversed into the true order. You are the cause of what you see, the world you see is simply the effect of your idea about yourself. Believe that you are separate from God and a world arises to support that. Declare that your mind is part of God’s, you are very holy, and vision is given you. Be honest with yourself today, apply the lesson to whatever you believe about yourself, good or bad, right or wrong.

I see myself as imposed on.
I see myself as depressed.
I see myself as failing.
I see myself as endangered.
I see myself as helpless.
I see myself as victorious.
I see myself as losing out.
I see myself as charitable.
I see myself as virtuous.

And then let it all go.

But my mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.

You don’t have to believe it, simply apply it. Your understanding is not required, it is in fact completely unnecessary. And that is the good news. These words will do the work, because they are given by God. They need no help whatsoever, only the little willingness to say them as often as possible today.
