Lesson 88

The light has come. I no longer see the negative side of things, expect the worse, or live in darkness. I can only see the truth and beauty all around me as I live in the light under only God’s laws of wholeness and happiness. I acknowledge that only love can bring me happiness. The most important of this love is of myself. For I am God’s child, made of love and love is all encompassing so I must love myself. Then I will see the love in everthing and one around me for they too are made of love. When I let this light of love shine out of me, I can then see no darkness, only light. 

This is a lesson of understanding and compassion for myself and others. If you love and understand, then nothing will upset you. Why can’t I get the perfect job, have the perfect body, have the perfect house, car, boat……because you are right where you need to be at this moment. Have peace and peace will come to you. Live in the light and you will see clearly. 

Lesson 87

It is not will to grope about in darj,ess, fearful shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal. Light shall be my guide today. I will experience the peace of true perception. 

There is no will but God’s. Everything that happens is part of God’s Will for me, however I may see it. I am safe for it is God’s will.

Lesson 86

The reviews for lesson 71 and 72 continue to emphasize how we attack our own salvation and happiness by coveting things other than God and holding grudges. 

I love the line “I will no longer defeat my own best interests.” I think of all the times I wanted to do or say something, but I didn’t have the courage to do so. I defeated myself by not trying and trusting that things would work out. Even in the healing work I do, there was a time I beat myself up that I wasn’t good enough and I idolized the “master” Mfr therapists. I remember John Barnes repeating over and over to get out of your own way. I so get that now. 

So, get out of your way. Have faith in God and all we want will be provided. 

Lesson 85

Review lesson 69: my grievances hide the light of the world in me. I have no need for this. I want to see. 

Review lesson 70: my salvation comes from me. Everything I see will reflect the light that shines in me and in itself.

Lesson 83 review

Lesson 65: my only function is the one God have me. All conflicts are gone. I am always certain what to do, say, and think. All doubt is gone. My only function is God’s. 

Lesson 66: my happiness and my function are one. It is God’s will for me to be happy. That is my function. I must learn to recognize what makes me happy. It is my function. 

This brings light to the saying “do what you love and love what you do.” it is our function. 

Forgiveness

There is so much emphasis on forgiveness in the last bulk of lessons. Yet earlier in the readings it was stated that God does not forgive because he never condemns. Forgiveness to me is a reactive state of thinking. Proactively, we could simply not condemn anyone. Just a thought as there are always two sides or more to a story and who’s really to say who is wrong and right. 

Lesson 82 review

Lesson 63: the light of the world brings peace to every Mind through my forgiveness. Let peace extend from my mind to yours. I share the light of the world with you. Through my forgiveness I can see this as it is.

Lesson 64: let me not forget my function. Let me not use this to hide my function from me. I would use this as an opportunity to fulfill my function. This may threaten My ego, but cannot change my function in any way.
