Intro to Lessons 51 – 60

LESSON 51

+++

W-pI.51.1. (1) Nothing I see means anything.

Close your eyes and imagine whatever you like. Think of this as seeing, as you know it. There is a place in your mind that knows that your “eyes” are actually sightless, even though you may be having a vivid experience of “sight”.

W-pI.51.2. (2) I have given what I see all the meaning it has for me.

If you find a reason to be upset with something in this “vivid experience of ‘sight’”, you will ignore your suspicions that your eyes are actually sightless. Even so, you recognize that you are in pain. Because of this pain, there is a willingness to let go of painful judgments. Your commitment to this Course is also evidence that you have not completely deceived yourself.

W-pI.51.3. (3) I do not understand anything I see.

If this were a dream, you would probably not devote so much serious attention to solving the problems that you see within it.

This is a dream.

W-pI.51.4. (4) These thoughts do not mean anything.

Only God’s thoughts are real thoughts. God can have no “attention” on (or thought of) the non-existent (the un-Real). What you call thought is not really thinking. Real thinking is the thinking you think with God. Why must you take “your” thoughts so seriously?

W-pI.51.5. (5) I am never upset for the reason I think.

“Your” thoughts seem to be important but this thinking is not the thinking that you think with God.

What you now call “upsetting thoughts” are about “something else” or “someone else”, which cannot be true in Oneness. Further, can you be upset, even with yourself, if there is no witness, victim or judge (all missing in Oneness)?

Your upset-ness is like a loud noise to distract. “… full of sound and fury signifying nothing.”

I am sustained by the Love of God.

Oneness is eternal, it does not change.

LESSON 48

Intro to Part I

LESSON 48

There is nothing to fear.

+++

The “you” that-you-think-you-are, is the source of all that you fear.

Fear is a separation idea. The feared is your thought of walls, projected “outward”. There must be a separating wall between one who fears and what is feared. There can be no walls in Oneness.

Anything that is not Oneness is illusion, no matter how much you may desire “something else”.

As Oneness and God are the same, the extent that you recognize that only Oneness is true, is the same extent that you remember God.

This remembrance is the end of fear.

LESSON 47

Course In Oneness Blog

Instructions below *

Intro to Part I

LESSON 47

God is the strength in which I trust.

+++

“You” believe the impossible. “You” believe you are a part of the indivisible.

As “you” identify with a part, or a piece, the strength that you identify with is the strength of a part, or a piece. How can this strength be trusted compared to the strength of the whole?

Separation means that you are on your own. Separation means that there are other parts, as you are a part. These other parts must be different if separation is true. One of these other different parts may be bigger or stronger, therefore threat seems possible.

By definition, the “parts” must be unknown to each other else separation must be denied. You feel vulnerable to the unknown part that is potentially bigger or stronger  than the part you identify as “you”.

Strength has no meaning in Oneness. Power is not necessary. There is no such thing as effort. This, however, is not your experience because you do not accept or identify with Oneness.

Fortunately, Oneness remains true if you believe it or not. It is the strength of Oneness that we connect with and rely on in todays practice.

LESSON 46

Course In Oneness Blog

Instructions below *

Intro to Part I

LESSON 46

God is the Love in which I forgive.

+++

A better term for Oneness is Only-ness.

If Only-ness is true, only God exists. If Only-ness is true, God=Love=Forgiveness.

Forgiveness is the reminder that Only-ness remains true, even within an experience  that validates a fearful and separated world. Fear requires that the fearful be “set apart” from that-which-is-feared.

Because Only-ness is true, the specialness and distinctions of a separated world require constant justification. It is these justifications that enable you to assert that you really are “set apart” from others and therefore “set apart” from God.

Forgiveness represents the letting-go of these justifications.

LESSON 45

Intro to Part I

LESSON 45

God is the Mind with which I think.

+++

In Reality, in which there is only God (One, without parts or pieces), God is non-different from Love or any creation of God.

In Reality, all mind is also non-different. What you now call thinking, occurs in different minds and therefore cannot be real thinking. 

In Reality, the mind I think with God must be Non-different and therefore think Real Thought. 

Non-difference thinking is a quality that you can know of God, even while immersed in the perceptual world of separation and differences.
