Review lesson 112

Lesson 93: light and peace and joy abide in me.

I am the home of light and peace and joy. I welcome them into my home I share with God because I am a part of Him.

Lesson 94: i am as God created me.

I will forever remain as I was, created by the Changless like Himself and I am one with Him, and He with me.

Review lesson 111

For these reviews, spwnd 5 minutes in the morning and evening and once every half hour thinking of the concepts being reviewed.

91 reviewed: miracles are seen in the light.

I cannot see in darkness. Let the light of Holiness and Truth light up my mind, and let me see the innocence with in.

92 review: miracles are seen in light, and light and strength are one.

I see through strength, the gift of God to me. My weakness is in the dark, his gifts dispels by giving me his strength to take its place.

Lesson 110

I am as God created me.

Today honor yourself. Seek God today in yourself. When you find him, you will understand how meaningless are your idols and how false the negative images are which you once thought were you.

Practice today’s idea with gratitude.

I am as God created me. His son can suffer nothing. And I am His Son.

With this statement firmly in your mind, try to discover in your mind the self who is the Holy Son of God himself. Seek him within you who is Christ in you, the Son of God and brother to the world, the Savior who has been forever saved, with power to save whoever touches him however lightly, asking for the word that tells him he is brother unto him.

Lesson 109

I rest in God.

As you say these words to yourself in a restful state know that this thought will bring you the rest and quiet, peace and Stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek. Completely under the thought will carry you through storms and strife, past misery and pain, past loss and death, and onward to the certainty of God. There is no suffering it cannot heal. There is no problem which it cannot solve. And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.

This is a day of peace. Rest in God.

This lesson is especially meaningful for me today. One of my dearest relatives is transitioning out of his body and rejoining with the spirit world. As I take the time today to rest and feel the peace and stillness that he must be feeling right now it is incredibly comforting. Knowing now even more ever, that someone never leaves us makes me question why my eyes fill with tears when I think of him no longer being physically present here. I know my tears are of sadness when they should be a joy in his transitioning. His transitioning is the end of an error of my great aunt and uncle’s being here. They are the group of people I grew up with on weekends and holidays and special occasions. No my life is absolutely wonderful at this time with family and friends resting in this Stillness will hopefully give me more insight to why I mourn his loss when I know he never truly leaves.

Lesson 108

To give and to receive are one in truth.

To give is to receive. In today’s practice close your eyes and offer peace to everyone you can think of and see how quickly it returns to you. Begin by saying to give and to receive our one in truth. I will receive what I am giving now. Then say to yourself to everyone I offer quietness. To everyone I offer peace of mind. To everyone I offer gentleness. To everyone I offer happiness. And continue on the list pausing after each thing you say and feeling it returned to you.

Lesson 107

Truth will correct the errors in my mind.

Errors are but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are. But once they are gone they are gone and only truth will remain. And that truth is a gift of healing that needs no defense and therefore needs no attack. This brings about pure peace and joy. Take a moment and imagine a time when you felt pure peace in which you were loved and safe. This could be yours once you allow God to speak the truth through you and then you in return take that truth to the rest of the world and carry out God’s gifts to everyone. You will speak for all the world when you believe that truth will correct all errors in your mind.

You speak to him today and make your pledge to let his function be fulfilled through you. To share his function is to share his Joy. His confidence is with you as you say

(Truth will correct all errors in my mind and I will rest in him who is myself.)

Then let him lead you gently to the truth which will envelop you and give you peace so deep and tranquil that you will return to the familiar World reluctantly, but willingly to continue to spread the word for God.

Lesson 106

Let me be still and listen to the truth.

Lay aside your ego and hear the mighty voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in its messages. Do not be persuaded by the voices of the world. Only God will speak the truth to you. Then you in turn will speak his truth to others so they, too, will know the truth of where happiness lies. Receive yoir miracles and they will echp throughout the world. Thus does salvation begin.

I will be still and listen to the truth. What does it mean to give and to receive?

Today, receive the word of God so you can give it away.

Let me be still and listen to the truth. I am the messenger of God today. My voice is His, to give what I receive,

Lesson 105

God’s peace and joy are mine.

God’s peace and joy are our gifts from God. They are gifts that offer a more valuablw return. True giving is creation. Time becomes eternity, limitless becomes unlimited, and love never ending when we accept God’s gifts of peace and joy.

Begin this practice period by thinking of anyone you hold contentment against. Offer them God’s love and peace for holding resentment blocks the path of love and peace to you.

Once you have truly offered this love and peace up, then you are open to take it in. Say to yourseld throughout the day and spend some quiet meditation time saying:

God’s peace and joy are mine

Lesson 104

I seek but what belongs to me in truth, and joy and peace are my inheritance. God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want. 

In order to receive this I must clear my mind of all perceived objects of happiness and then God can have the space to fill me with joy and peace. Today we would remove all meaningless and self-made gifts, idols, and goals to achieve in order to be happy. God’s gifts were inherited to us before time was and will always be ours even when time passes into eternity. Therefore, we can have joy and peace right now. It is God’s will. 

This is so valuable to me right now as I’m under a bit of stress. I must continually remind myself of the insignificance of my stressor in grand scheme of life. God wants me to be happy, not stressed. I am putting this on myself, and therefore; I can take it away. I’m not saying this is easy, but I have found the benefit of the stressor is more awareness of where I carry my stress. Now, I know more areas of my body that I need to find peace in. 

I seek but what belongs to me in truth. God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want. 

Lesson 103

God being loved is also happiness. Today fear him is to be afraid of joy. God being loved is also happiness and it is happiness I think today. I cannot fail because I seek the truth.

God is not meant to be feared. God’s presence in our life is to bring us joy and show us love not fear or shame or guilt. To be afraid of God is to say you are afraid of love and joy. Therefore if you believe in God you also believe in happiness and you can find happiness. Happiness belongs to you because it is God’s will for you.
