INTERNATIONAL WEEK OF FORGIVENESS
AND PERFECT PEACE

A Global Festival Celebrating The Freedom And Peace
That The Healing Power Of Love And Forgiveness
Is Bringing To All The World

Practice a week, or a day, or an hour, or even an instant of happy forgiving and forgetting of all the grievances we hold against each other and the world.

Let's get rid of our grudges. We're going to let bygones be bygones at last! We'll forgive together and watch this world change before our very eyes. Come join in the miracle healing power of the love and light of Jesus.

“Behold, I show you a mystery we shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye...”

  • Where could your peace arise but from forgiveness?
    The Christ in you looks only on the truth, and
    sees no condemnation that could need forgiveness.
    He is at peace because He sees no sin.
  • I could see peace instead of this.
  • There is no peace except the peace of God.
    Let me not wander from the way of peace,
    for I am lost on other roads than this.
    But let me follow Him Who leads me home,
    and peace is certain as the Love of God.
  • Your peace is with me, Father. I am safe.
    Your peace surrounds me, Father. Where I go,
    Your peace goes there with me. I give Your peace
    to those who suffer pain, or grieve for loss, or think
    they are bereft of hope and happiness. Send them to
    me, my Father. Let me bring Your peace with me.
  • And when the evening comes today,
    we will remember nothing but the peace of God.
    For we will learn today what peace is ours,
    when we forget all things except God’s Love.
  • We stand together, Christ and I,
    in peace and certainty of purpose.
    And in Him is His Creator, as He is in me.
  • The peace of God can never be contained.
    Who recognizes it within himself must give it.
    And the means for giving it are in his understanding.
    He forgives because he recognized the truth in him.
    The peace of God is shining in you now,
    and in all living things.
  • Father, we are like You.
    No cruelty abides in us, for there is none in You.
    Your peace is ours. And we bless the world
    with what we have received from You alone.
  • Today accept God’s peace and joy as yours.
    Let Him complete Himself as He defines completion.
    Receive His gift of joy and peace today,
    and He will thank you for your gift to Him.
  • Forgive us our illusions, Father, and help us to
    accept our true relationship with You, in which there
    are no illusions, and where none can ever enter.
    Our holiness is Yours. What can there be in us
    that needs forgiveness when Yours is perfect?
    The sleep of forgetfulness is only the unwillingness
    to remember Your forgiveness and Your Love.
  • For when forgiveness rests upon the world and
    peace has come to every Son of God, what could
    there be to keep things separate, for what
    remains to see except Christ’s face?
  • The real world is attained simply by
    the complete forgiveness of the old,
    the world you see without forgiveness.
  • We spend this day together, you and I. And all
    the world joins with us in our song of thankfulness
    and joy to Him Who gave salvation to us, and Who
    set us free. We are restored to peace and holiness.
    There is no room in us for fear today, for we have
    welcomed love into our hearts.
  • There is no peace except the peace of God,
    because He has one Son who cannot make a
    world in opposition to God’s Will and to his own,
    which is the same as His.
  • Father, there is no will but Yours. And I am glad
    that nothing I imagine contradicts what You would
    have me be. It is Your Will that I be wholly safe,
    eternally at peace. And happily I share that Will
    which You, my Father, gave as part of me.
  • Anger is never justified. Attack has no foundation.
    It is here escape from fear begins, and will be
    made complete. Here is the real world give
    in exchange for dreams of terror. For it is on
    this forgiveness rests, and is but natural.
  • It is not the world that makes peace seem impossible.
    It is the world you see that is impossible. Yet has
    God’s Judgment on this distorted world redeemed it
    and made it fit to welcome peace. And peace descends
    on it in joyous answer. Peace now belongs here,
    because a Thought of God has entered.
  • Father, guide Your Son along the
    quiet path that leads to You.
    Let my forgiveness be complete,
    and let the memory of You return to me.
  • Forgive me all the sins you think the Son of God
    committed. And in the light of your forgiveness he
    will remember who he is, and forget what never was.
    I ask for your forgiveness, for if you are guilty, so
    must I be. But if I surmounted guilt and overcame
    the world, you were with me.
  • We clear a holy place within our minds before
    His altar, where His gifts of peace and joy
    are welcome, and to which we come to find
    what has been given us by Him.
  • Be not deceived about the meaning of a fixed belief
    that some appearances are harder to look past than
    others are. It always means you think forgiveness
    must be limited. And you have set a goal of partial
    pardon and a limited escape from guilt for you.
    What can this be except a false forgiveness of
    yourself, and everyone who seems apart from you?
  • To heal is to make whole. And what is whole can
    have no missing parts that have been kept outside.
    Forgiveness rests on recognizing this, and being
    glad there cannot be some forms of sickness
    which the miracle must lack the power to heal.
  • But you are merely asked to see forgiveness
    as the natural reaction to distress that rests
    on error, and thus calls for help.
    Forgiveness is the only sane response.
  • Forgiveness takes away what stands between
    your brother and yourself.
    It is the wish that you be joined with him,
    and not apart.
  • Insane thoughts are upsetting. They produce
    a world in which there is no order anywhere.
    Only chaos rules a world that represents chaotic
    thinking, and chaos has no laws. I cannot live
    in peace in such a world. I am grateful that this
    world is not real, and that I need not see it at all
    unless I choose to value it.
  • Seek you no further. There is nothing else for you
    to find except the peace of God, unless you seek
    for misery and pain. Yet you can ask as easily
    for love, for happiness, and for eternal life
    in peace that has no ending.
  • In the face of your fear of forgiveness, which the
    Holy Spirit perceives as clearly as He knows
    forgiveness is release, He will teach you to
    remember that forgiveness is not loss, but your
    salvation. And that in complete forgiveness,
    in which you recognize that there is nothing
    to forgive, you are absolved completely.
  • Stop for a moment now and think of this:
    Is conflict what you want, or is God’s peace
    the better choice? Which gives you more?
    A tranquil mind is not a little gift.
    Would you not rather live than choose to die?
  • Make way for love, which you did not create,
    but which you can extend. On earth this means
    forgive your brother, that the darkness
    may be lifted from your mind.
  • This is the day of peace. You rest in God,
    and while the world is torn by winds of hate
    your rest remains completely undisturbed.
    Yours is the rest of truth.
    Appearances cannot intrude on you.
  • Let me attend Your Answer, not my own.
    Father, my heart is beating in the
    peace the Heart of Love created.
    It is there and only there that I can be at home.
  • Forgiveness is this world’s equivalent of Heaven’s
    justice. It translates the world of sin into a simple
    world, where justice can be reflected from beyond
    the gate behind which total lack of limits lies.
  • This day I choose to spend in perfect peace.
    And let the peace I choose be mine today bear
    witness to the truth of what He says. God’s Son
    can have no cares, and must remain forever
    in the peace of Heaven
  • I want the peace of God.
  • Around you angels hover lovingly,
    to keep away all darkened thoughts of sin,
    and keep the light where it has entered in.
    Your footprints lighten up the world, for where
    you walk forgiveness gladly goes with you.
  • And so we walk with Him from this time on,
    and turn to Him for guidance and for peace
    and sure direction. Joy attends our way.
    For we go homeward to an open door which
    God has held unclosed to welcome us.
  • This day I choose to spend in perfect peace.
    It does not seem to me that I can choose to have
    but peace today. And yet, my God assures me
    that His Son is like Himself. Let me this day
    have faith in Him Who says I am God’s Son. .
  • The hush of Heaven holds my heart today.
    Father, in You is everything I hope to find already
    given me. Your peace is mine. My heart is quiet, and
    my mind at rest. Your Love is Heaven, and Your Love is mine.
  • All that must be forgiven are the illusions you have
    held against your brothers. Thus will you learn that
    you have been forgiven, for it is you who offered
    them illusions. In the holy instant this is done
    for you in time, to bring you the true condition
    of Heaven.
  • And no one walks upon the earth but must depend
    on your decision, that he learn death has no power
    over him, because he shares your freedom as he
    shares your will. It is your will to heal him, and
    because you have decided with him, he is healed.
    And now is God forgiven, for you chose to look
    upon your brother as a friend.
  • Light and joy and peace abide in me.
    Why would you not be overjoyed to be assured that
    all the evil that you think you did was never done,
    that all your sins are nothing, that you are as
    pure and holy as you were created, and that
    light and joy and peace abide in you?
  • Yet will one lily of forgiveness change the darkness
    into light; the altar to illusions to the shrine of
    Life Itself. And peace will be restored forever to
    the holy minds which God created as His Son,
    His dwelling place, His joy, His love, completely
    His, completely one with Him.
  • We who are one would recognize this day
    the truth about ourselves. We would come home,
    and rest in unity. For there is peace, and
    nowhere else can peace be sought and found.
  • The betrayal of the Son of God lies only
    in illusions, and all his “sins” are but his
    own imagining. His reality is forever sinless.
    He need not be forgiven but awakened.
  • Forgiveness is not real unless it brings a healing to
    your brother and yourself. You must attest his sins
    have no effect on you to demonstrate they are not
    real. How else could he be guiltless? And how could
    his innocence be justified unless his sins have no
    effect to warrant guilt?
  • God’s answer is some form of peace.
    All pain is healed; all misery replaced with joy.
    All prison doors are opened.
    And all sin is understood as merely a mistake.
  • The forgiven are the means of the Atonement.
    Being filled with spirit, they forgive in return.
    Those who are released must join in releasing their
    brothers, for this is the plan of the Atonement.
  • You are set on freedom’s road, and now today’s idea
    brings wings to speed you on, and hope to go still
    faster to the waiting goal of peace.
  • How is peace possible in this world?
    In your judgment it is not possible,
    and can never be possible.
    But in the Judgment of God what
    is reflected here is only peace.
  • There is nothing to forgive.
    No one can hurt the Son of God.
    His guilt is wholly without cause,
    and being without cause, cannot exist.
  • Forgiveness is a selective remembering, based not
    on your selection. For the shadow figures you would
    make immortal are “enemies” of reality. Be willing
    to forgive the Son of God for what he did not do.
  • I was a stranger and you took me in, not knowing
    who I was. Yet for your gift of lilies you will know.
    In your forgiveness of this stranger, alien to you
    and yet your ancient Friend, lies his release and
    your redemption with him.
  • The sick remain accusers. They cannot forgive their
    brothers and themselves as well. For no one in
    whom true forgiveness rests can suffer. He holds
    not the proof of sin before his brother’s eyes.
    And thus he must have overlooked it and
    removed it from his own.
  • To fear God’s saving grace is but to fear complete
    release from suffering, return to peace, security
    and happiness, and union with your own Identity.
  • Only illusions can be forgiven,
    and then they disappear.
    Forgiveness is release from all illusions,
    and that is why it is impossible
    but partly to forgive.
  • Forgiving dreams are kind to everyone who figures
    in the dream. And so they bring the dreamer full
    release from dreams of fear. He does not fear
    his judgment for he has judged no one, nor
    has sought to be released through judgment
    from what judgment must impose.
  • When I see the world as a place of freedom,
    I realize that it reflects the laws of God instead of
    the rules I made up for it to obey. I will understand
    that peace, not war, abides in it. And I will perceive
    that peace also abides in the hearts of all
    who share this place with me.
  • Father, we have no words except Your Name
    upon our lips and in our minds, as we come
    quietly into Your Presence now, and ask to rest
    with You in peace a while.
  • My sinless brother is my guide to peace.
    My sinful brother is my guide to pain.
    And which I choose to see I will behold.
  • Who would “go” anywhere,
    if peace of mind is already complete?
    And who would seek to change tranquility
    for something more desirable?
    What could be more desirable than this?
  • The holiness of your relationship forgives you
    and your brother, undoing the effects of what
    you both believed and saw. And with their going
    is the need for sin gone with them.
  • Now do your eyes belong to Christ,
    and He looks through them.
    Now your voice belongs to God and echoes His.
    And now your heart remains at peace forever.
  • As Heaven’s peace and joy intensify when you
    accept them as God’s gift to you, so does the joy
    of your Creator grow when you accept His joy
    and peace as yours. True giving is creation.
  • Forgiveness is your peace,
    for herein lies the end of separation and the
    dream of danger and destruction, sin and death;
    of madness and of murder, grief and loss.
    This is the “sacrifice” salvation asks,
    and gladly offers peace instead of this.
  • Ours are the ears that hear the Voice for God
    proclaim the world as sinless. Ours the minds
    that join together as we bless the world. And from
    the oneness that we have attained we call to
    all our brothers, asking them to share our peace
    and consummate our joy.
  • When you forgive the world your guilt, you will
    be free of it. Its innocence does not demand your
    guilt, nor does your guiltlessness rest on its sins.
  • Peace is impossible to those who look on war.
    Peace is inevitable to those who offer peace.
  • You are the spirit lovingly endowed with all
    your Father’s Love and peace and joy.
    You are the spirit which completes Himself,
    and shares His function as Creator.
    He is with you always, as you are with Him.
  • I am not asked to make a sacrifice to
    find the mercy and the peace of God.
  • Give welcome to the Power beyond forgiveness,
    and beyond the world of symbols and of limitations.
  • We thank You, Father, that we cannot lose the
    memory of You and of Your Love. We recognize our
    safety, and give thanks for all the gifts You have
    bestowed on us, for all the loving help we have
    received, for Your eternal patience, and the Word
    which You have given us that we are saved.
  • My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.
    As I share the peace of the world with my brothers,
    I begin to understand that this peace comes from
    deep within myself. The world I look upon
    has taken on the light of my forgiveness,
    and shines forgiveness back at me.
  • Father, I seek the peace You gave as mine in my
    creation. What was given then must be here now,
    for my creation was apart from time, and still
    remains beyond all change. The peace in which
    Your Son was born into Your Mind is shining there
    unchanged. I am as You created me. I need but
    call on You to find the peace You gave.
  • No rules are idly set, and no demands are made
    of anyone or anything to twist and fit into the
    dream of fear. Instead, there is a wish to
    understand all things created as they really are.
    And it is recognized that all things must be
    first forgiven, and then understood.
  • Creation is eternal and unalterable.
    Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God.
    You are and will forever be exactly as you were
    created. Light and joy and peace abide in you
    because God put them there.
  • Forgive your brother all appearances, that are but
    ancient lessons you have taught yourself about the
    sinfulness in you. Hear but his call for mercy and
    release from all the fearful images he holds of
    what he is and of what you must be.
  • Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home in God alone,
    does Christ remain at peace within the Heaven
    of your holy mind. This is the only part of you
    that has reality in truth. The rest is dreams.
  • Dream of your brother’s kindnesses instead of
    dwelling in your dreams on his mistakes. Select his
    thoughtfulness to dream about instead of counting
    up the hurts he gave. Forgive him his illusions, and
    give thanks to him for all the helpfulness he gave.
  • The light of the world brings peace to every mind
    through my forgiveness.
  • Forgiveness does not aim at keeping time, but at
    its ending, when it has no use. Its purpose ended,
    it is gone. And where it once held seeming sway
    is now restored the function God established for
    His Son in full awareness. Time can set no end
    to its fulfillment nor its changelessness.
  • Light and joy and peace abide in me.
    I am the home of light and joy and peace.
    I welcome them into the home I share with God,
    because I am a part of Him.
  • We have one Interpreter. And through His use
    of symbols are we joined, so that they mean the
    same to all of us. Our common language lets us
    speak to all our brothers, and to understand
    with them forgiveness has been given to us all,
    and thus we can communicate again.
  • God’s peace and joy are mine.
    Today I will accept God’s peace and joy,
    in glad exchange for all the substitutes
    that I have made for happiness and peace.
  • To forgive is to overlook. Look, then, beyond error
    and do not let your perception rest upon it,
    for you will believe what your perception holds.
    Accept as true only what your brother is,
    if you would know yourself.
  • It is as sure that those who hold grievances
    will suffer guilt, as it is certain that those
    who forgive will find peace.
  • Truth is a savior and can only will for happiness and
    peace for everyone. It gives its strength to everyone
    who asks, in limitless supply. It gives its light that
    all may see and benefit as one. Its strength is shared,
    that it may bring to all the miracle in which they
    will unite in purpose and forgiveness and in love.
  • You never hate your brother for his sins, but only
    for your own. Whatever form his sins appear to
    take, it but obscures the fact that you believe
    them to be yours, and therefore meriting a “just”
    attack. Why should his sins be sins, if you did not
    believe they could not be forgiven in you?
  • The mercy and the peace of God are free.
    Salvation has no cost. It is a gift that must
    be freely given and received. And it is this
    that we would learn today.
  • Peace be to me, and peace to all the world.
    In holiness were we created and
    in holiness do we remain.
    Your Son is like to You in perfect sinlessness.
    And with this thought we gladly say “Amen.”
  • Nothing in boundless love could need forgiveness.
    And what is charity within the world gives way to
    simple justice past the gate that opens into Heaven.
  • Forgiveness sweeps away distortions, and opens the
    hidden altar to the truth. Its lilies shine into the
    mind, and call it to return and look within,
    to find what it has vainly sought without.
    For here, and only here, is peace of mind restored,
    for this the dwelling place of God Himself.
  • I am spirit.
    Today’s idea identifies you with your one Self.
    It accepts no split identity, nor tries to weave
    opposing factors into unity. It simply states the truth.
    Practice this truth today as often as you can,
    for it will bring your mind from conflict
    to the quiet fields of peace.
  • We wait with one intent; to hear our Father’s
    answer to our call, to let our thoughts be still
    and find His peace, to hear Him speak to us of
    what we are, and to reveal Himself unto His Son.
  • There is another purpose in the world that error
    made, because it has another Maker Who can
    reconcile its goal with His Creator’s purpose.
    In His perception of the world, nothing is seen
    but justifies forgiveness and the sight of perfect
    sinlessness. Nothing arises but is met with
    instant and complete forgiveness.
  • Father, help us forgive, for we would be redeemed.
    Help us forgive, for we would be at peace.
  • My Father gives all power unto me.
    The Son of God is limitless. There are no limits on
    his strength, his peace, his joy, nor any attributes
    his Father gave in his creation.
  • Forgiveness is the only function here,
    and serves to bring the joy this world denies
    to every aspect of God’s Son where sin
    was thought to rule.
  • Salvation is a paradox indeed!
    What could it be except a happy dream?
    It asks you but that you forgive all things that
    no one ever did; to overlook what is not there,
    and not to look upon the unreal as reality.
  • The world will end in peace,
    because it is a place of war.
    When peace has come,
    what is the purpose of the world?
  • There is no end to all the peace and joy,
    And all the miracles that I will give,
    When I accept God’s Word. Why not today?
  • Behold your Friend, the Christ Who stands beside
    you. How holy and how beautiful He is! You
    thought He sinned because you cast the veil of sin
    upon Him to hide His loveliness. Yet still He holds
    forgiveness out to you, to share His holiness.
  • Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
    Here is the answer to your search for peace.
    Here is the key to meaning in a world
    that seems to make no sense.
  • The miracle forgives because it stands for
    what is past forgiveness and is true.
    How foolish and insane it is to think a miracle
    is bound by laws that it came solely to undo!
  • You who are beloved of Him are no illusion, being
    as true and holy as Himself. The stillness of your
    certainty of Him and of yourself is home to both
    of You, Who dwell as one and not apart. Open the
    door of His most holy home, and let forgiveness
    sweep away all trace of the belief in sin that keeps
    God homeless and His Son with Him.
  • Peace be to you today.
    Secure your peace by practicing awareness you
    are one with your Creator, as He is with you.
    Let me remember I am one with God, at one
    with all my brothers and my Self,
    in everlasting holiness and peace.
  • From the forgiven world the Son of God
    is lifted easily into his home.
    And there he knows that he has always
    rested there in peace.
  • God’s Son can never change by what men made
    of him. He will be as he was and as he is, for time
    appointed not his destiny, nor set the hour of his
    birth and death. Forgiveness will not change him.
    Yet time waits upon forgiveness that the things of
    time may disappear because they have no use.
  • I am one Self, united with my Creator,
    at one with every aspect of creation,
    and limitless in power and in peace.
  • Father, Your Son is like Yourself.
    We come to You in Your Own Name today,
    to be at peace within Your everlasting Love.
  • I will there be light.
    Light shall be my guide today. I will follow it where
    it leads me, and I will look only on what it shows me.
    This day I will experience the peace
    of true perception.
  • Hold out your hand, that you may have the
    gift of kind forgiveness which you offer one
    whose need for it is just the same as yours.
    And let the cruel concept of yourself be changed
    to one that brings the peace of God.
  • We ask for rest today, and quietness unshaken
    by the world’s appearances. We ask for peace and
    stillness, in the midst of all the turmoil born
    of clashing dreams. We ask for safety and
    for happiness, although we seem to look
    on danger and on sorrow.
  • Look at the kindly world you see extend before you
    as you walk in gentleness. Look at the helpers all
    along the way you travel, happy in the certainty
    of Heaven and the surety of peace.
  • Prayer is a way of asking for something. It is the
    medium of miracles. But the only meaningful
    prayer is for forgiveness, because those who
    have been forgiven have everything.
  • Peace is the bridge that everyone will cross,
    to leave this world behind.
    But peace begins within the world perceived as
    different, and leading from this fresh perception
    to the gate of Heaven and the way beyond.
  • You are my goal, my Father. Only You.
    Where would I go but Heaven?
    What could be a substitute for happiness?
    What gift could I prefer before the peace of God?
  • You who want peace can find it only
    by complete forgiveness.
  • Can you to whom God says, “Release My Son!”
    be tempted not to listen, when you learn
    that it is you for whom He asks release?
    And what but this is what this course would teach?
    And what but this is there for you to learn?
  • The gift of Christ is all I seek today.
    Today I can forget the world I made.
    Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love
    and holiness and peace. Today I am redeemed,
    and born anew into a world of mercy and of care;
    of loving kindness and the peace of God.
  • God’s peace is recognized at first by just one thing; in
    every way it is totally unlike all previous experiences.
    It calls to mind nothing that went before.
    It brings with it no past associations.
    It is a new thing entirely.
  • Accept God’s peace and joy, and you will learn a
    different way of looking at a gift. God’s gifts will
    never lessen when they are given away.
    They but increase thereby.
  • Let me recognize my problems have been solved.
    You are entitled to peace today. A problem that has
    been resolved cannot trouble you. Only be certain
    you do not forget that all problems are the same.
    Their many forms will not deceive you while you
    remember this. One problem, one solution.
    Accept the peace this simple statement brings.
  • Now are we one with Him Who is our Source.
    There is a silence into which the world
    can not intrude. There is an ancient peace
    you carry in your heart and have not lost.
  • Peace to all seeking hearts today.
    The light has come to offer miracles to
    bless the tired world. It will find rest today,
    for we will offer what we have received.
  • And all the world departs in silence as this peace
    envelops it, and gently carries it to truth, no
    more to be the home of fear. For love has come,
    and healed the world by giving it Christ’s peace.
  • I need not wait an instant more to be at
    peace forever. It is You I choose, and my
    Identity along with You. Your Son would be
    Himself, and know You as his Father
    and Creator, and his Love.
  • Each brother whom you meet today provides
    another chance to let Christ’s vision shine on you,
    and offer you the peace of God.
  • Spirit makes use of mind as means
    to find its Self expression.
    And the mind which serves the spirit
    is at peace and filled with joy.
  • Sins are beyond forgiveness just because they would
    entail effects that cannot be undone and overlooked
    entirely. In their undoing lies the proof that they
    are merely errors. Let yourself be healed that you
    may be forgiving, offering salvation to your brother
    and yourself.
  • We will remember, as the hour strikes, our function
    is to let our minds be healed, that we may carry
    healing to the world, exchanging curse for blessing,
    pain for joy, and separation for the peace of God.
  • We are deceived no longer. Love has now returned
    to our awareness. And we are at peace again,
    for fear has gone and only love remains.
  • Forgiveness is the necessary condition for finding
    the peace of God. More than this, given forgiveness
    there must be peace. For what except attack will
    lead to war? And what but peace is opposite to war?
    Here the initial contrast stands out clear and
    apparent. Yet when peace is found,
    the war is meaningless.
  • My heart is beating in the peace of God.
    Surrounding me is all the life that God created in
    His Love. It calls to me in every heartbeat and in
    every breath; in every action and in every thought.
    Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with
    the purpose of forgiveness.
  • Forgiveness offers everything I want.
    What could you want forgiveness cannot give?
    Do you want peace? Forgiveness offers it.
  • Now is the question different.
    It is no longer, “Can peace be possible in this
    world?” but instead, “Is it not impossible
    that peace be absent here?”
  • The purpose of Atonement is to dispel illusions,
    not to establish them as real and then forgive them.
  • The final step is also but a shift. As a perception
    it is part unreal. And yet this part will vanish.
    What remains is peace eternal and the Will of God.
  • Perception rests, the mind is still
    and light returns again. Vision is now restored.
    What had been lost has now been found.
    The peace of God descends on all the world,
    and we can see. And we can see!
  • Forgiveness turns the world of sin into a world of
    glory, wonderful to see. Each flower shines in light,
    and every bird sings of the joy of Heaven.
    There is no sadness and there is no parting here,
    for everything is totally forgiven. And what has
    been forgiven must join, for nothing stands
    between to keep them separate and apart.
  • Forgiveness always rests upon the one who offers it,
    until he sees himself as needing it no more.
    And thus is he returned to his real function of
    creating, which his forgiveness offers him again.
  • I rest in God.
    The world is born again each time you rest,
    and hourly remember that you came to bring
    the peace of God into the world, that it might
    take its rest along with you.
  • I will forgive, and this will disappear.
  • Forgiveness brings no little miracles
    to lay before the gate of Heaven.
    Here the Son of God Himself comes to receive
    each gift that brings him nearer to his home.
  • As forgiveness allows love to return to my
    awareness, I will see a world of peace and safety
    and joy. And it is this I choose to see,
    in place of what I look on now.
  • “The stillness of the peace of God is mine,”
    and nothing can intrude upon the peace that
    God Himself has given to His Son.
  • God asks you to be happy, so the world can see how
    much He loves His Son, and wills no sorrow rises to
    abate his joy; no fear besets him to disturb his peace.
  • Forgiving dreams remind you that you live in
    safety and have not attacked yourself. So do your
    childish terrors melt away, and dreams become
    a sign that you have made a new beginning, not
    another try to worship idols and to keep attack.
  • God asks for your forgiveness.
    Forgive the great Creator of the universe, the
    Source of life, of love and holiness, the perfect
    Father of a perfect Son, for your illusions of your
    specialness. Forgive the Holy One the specialness
    He could not give, and that you made instead.
  • Jesus would help you yet a little more if
    you will share your pains and joys with him,
    and leave them both to find the peace of God.
  • Forgiveness is this world’s equivalent of Heaven’s
    justice. It translates the world of sin into a simple
    world, where justice can be reflected from beyond
    the gate behind which total lack of limits lies.
  • A miracle is a universal blessing from
    God through me to all my brothers.
    It is the privilege of the forgiven to forgive.
  • Miracles are natural signs of forgiveness.
    Through miracles you accept God’s forgiveness
    by extending it to others.
  • Hear, holy Son of God, your Father speak.
    His Voice would give to you His holy Word,
    to spread across the world the tidings of
    salvation and the holy time of peace.
  • Where there is death is peace impossible.
  • To mean you want the peace of God is to renounce
    all dreams. For no one means these words who
    wants illusions, and who therefore seeks
    the means which bring illusions.
  • The peace of God is shining in you now, and from
    your heart extends around the world. It pauses to
    caress each living thing, and leaves a blessing
    with it that remains forever and forever.
  • Forgiveness lies in communication as
    surely as damnation lies in guilt.
  • Remember that peace is your right,
    because you are giving your trust to
    the strength of God.
  • Be not afraid, my child, but let your world be
    gently lit by miracles. And where the little gap
    was seen to stand between you and your brother,
    join him there. And so sickness will now be
    seen without a cause. The dream of healing
    in forgiveness lies, and gently shows you
    that you never sinned.
  • Thus is the real world’s purpose gently
    brought into awareness, to replace
    the goal of sin and guilt.
    And all that stood between your image
    of yourself and what you are,
    forgiveness washes joyfully away.
  • What is the peace of God? No more than this;
    the simple understanding that His Will is wholly
    without opposite. There is no thought that
    contradicts His Will, yet can be true.
  • Father, the peace of Christ is given us, because it is
    Your Will that we be saved. Help us today but to
    accept Your gift, and judge it not. For it has come
    to us to save us from our judgment on ourselves.
  • The grace of God rests gently on forgiving eyes, and
    everything they look on speaks of Him to the beholder.
    He can see no evil; nothing in the world to fear,
    and no one who is different from himself.
    And as he loves them, so he looks upon himself with
    love and gentleness. He would no more condemn
    himself for his mistakes than damn another.
  • Father, I must return Your Love for me, for giving
    and receiving are the same, and You have given all
    Your Love to me. I must return it, for I want it mine
    in full awareness, blazing in my mind and keeping
    it within its kindly light, inviolate, beloved,
    with fear behind and only peace ahead.
  • ”Who walks with me?”
    This question should be asked a thousand times
    a day, till certainty has ended doubting
    and established peace.
  • The Son whom God created is as free as God created
    him. He was reborn the instant that he chose to die
    instead of live. And will you not forgive him now,
    because he made an error in the past that God
    remembers not, and is not there?
  • Peace be to me, the holy Son of God.
    Peace to my brother, who is one with me.
    Let all the world be blessed with peace through us.
  • Like every lesson that the Holy Spirit requests
    you learn, the miracle is clear. It demonstrates
    what He would have you learn, and shows you its
    effects are what you want. In His forgiving dreams
    are the effects of yours undone, and hated enemies
    perceived as friends with merciful intent.
  • The peace of God is shining in me now.
    Let all things shine upon me in that peace,
    And let me bless them with the light in me.
  • This is a day of stillness and of peace.
    Christ’s vision looks through me today.
    His sight shows me all things forgiven and at peace,
    and offers this same vision to the world.
  • I am one Self, united with my Creator.
    Let all your errors go by recognizing them for what
    they are. They are attempts to keep you unaware you
    are one Self, united with your Creator, at one with
    every aspect of creation, and limitless in power and
    in peace. This is the truth, and nothing else is true.
  • This is the light that shows no opposites,
    and vision, being healed, has power to heal.
    This is the light that brings your peace of mind
    to other minds, to share it and be glad that
    they are one with you and with themselves.
  • Perhaps you do not see the role forgiveness plays
    in ending death and all beliefs that rise from mists
    of guilt. Sins are beliefs that you impose between
    your brother and yourself. They limit you to time
    and place, and give a little space to you, another
    little space to him.
  • You can overlook your brother’s dreams. So perfectly
    can you forgive him his illusions he becomes your
    savior from your dreams. And as you see him shining
    in the space of light where God abides within the
    darkness, you will see that God Himself is where
    his body is. Before this light the body disappears,
    as heavy shadows must give way to light.
  • We want the peace of God.
    This is no idle wish. These words do not
    request another dream be given us.
  • Hear His Voice alone in all that speaks to you.
    And let Him give you peace and certainty
    which you have thrown away,
    but Heaven has preserved for you in Him.
  • Holy are you, eternal, free and whole,
    at peace forever in the Heart of God.
    Where is the world, and where is sorrow now?
  • God is my refuge and security.
    Let me today seek not security in danger,
    nor attempt to find my peace in murderous attack.
    I live in God. In Him I find my refuge and my strength.
    In Him is my Identity. In Him is everlasting peace.
    And only there will I remember Who I really am.
  • How beautiful the sight you saw beyond the veil,
    which you will bring to light the tired eyes of those
    as weary now as once you were. How thankful will
    they be to see you come among them, offering
    Christ’s forgiveness to dispel their faith in sin.
  • We trust our ways to Him and say “Amen.”
    In peace we will continue in His way,
    and trust all things to Him.
  • To forgive is merely to remember only the loving
    thoughts you gave in the past, and those that were
    given you. All the rest must be forgotten.
  • A slain Christ has no meaning.
    But a risen Christ becomes the symbol of the
    Son of God’s forgiveness on himself; the sign
    he looks upon himself as healed and whole.
  • Today the peace of God envelops me,
    And I forget all things except His Love.
  • We who complete Him offer thanks to Him,
    as He gives thanks to us.
    The Son is still, and in the quiet God has given him
    enters his home and is at peace at last.
  • The peace of God is shining in me now.
    I will be still, and let the earth be still along with me.
    And in that stillness we will find the peace of God.
    It is within my heart,
    which witnesses to God Himself.
  • The final step is God’s, because it is but God
    Who could create a perfect Son and share His
    Fatherhood with him. No one outside of Heaven
    knows how this can be, for understanding this is
    Heaven itself. Even the real world has a purpose
    still beneath creation and eternity. But fear is gone
    because its purpose is forgiveness, not idolatry.
  • You cannot give yourself your innocence,
    for you are too confused about yourself.
    But should one brother dawn upon your sight
    as wholly worthy of forgiveness, then your
    concept of yourself is wholly changed.
    Your “evil” thoughts have been forgiven with his,
    because you let them all affect you not.
  • Forgive yourself your madness, and forget
    all senseless journeys and all goal-less aims.
    They have no meaning.
    You can not escape from what you are.
    For God is merciful,
    and did not let His Son abandon Him.
  • Forgiveness is not yet a power known as wholly free
    of limits. Yet it sets no limits you have chosen to
    impose.When its aim has been accomplished it is
    functionless. Yet in the learning interval it has a
    use that now you fear, but yet will love.
  • You are God’s messenger today.
    You bring His happiness to all you look upon;
    His peace to everyone who looks on you
    and sees His message in your happy face.
  • The Atonement gives you the power of a healed
    mind, but the power to create is of God.
    Therefore, those who have been forgiven must
    devote themselves first to healing because,
    having received the idea of healing,
    they must give it to hold it.
  • Your relationship with your brother has been
    uprooted from the world of shadows, and its
    unholy purpose has been safely brought through
    the barriers of guilt, washed with forgiveness, and
    set shining and firmly rooted in the world of light.
  • I want the peace of God.
    It is this one intent we seek today, uniting our
    desires with the need of every heart, the call of
    every mind, the hope that lies beyond despair,
    the love attack would hide, the brotherhood
    that hate has sought to sever, but which
    still remains as God created it.
  • I am one Self, united with my Creator.
    Repeat today’s idea as frequently as possible,
    and understand each time you do so,
    someone hears the voice of hope,
    the stirring of the truth within his mind,
    the gentle rustling of the wings of peace. .
  • We thank You, Father, for the light that shines
    forever in us. And we honor it, because You share
    it with us. We are one, united in this light and one
    with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves.
  • Miracles are part of an interlocking chain of
    forgiveness which, when completed, is the
    Atonement. Atonement works all the time
    and in all the dimensions of time.
  • Follow the Holy Spirit’s teaching in forgiveness,
    then, because forgiveness is His function and
    He knows how to fulfill it perfectly. That is what
    I meant when I said that miracles are natural,
    and when they do not occur something
    has gone wrong.
  • When you become disturbed and lose your peace of
    mind because another is attempting to solve his
    problems through fantasy, you are refusing to forgive
    yourself for just this same attempt. And you are holding
    both of you away from truth and from salvation. As
    you forgive him, you restore to truth what was denied
    by both of you. And you will see forgiveness where
    you have given it.
  • Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter.
    It must begin with your own thoughts, and then
    extend outward. It is from your peace of mind that
    a peaceful perception of the world arises.
  • You rest within the peace of God today,
    and call upon your brothers from your rest
    to draw them to their rest, along with you.
    You will be faithful to your trust today, forgetting
    no one, bringing everyone into the boundless circle
    of your peace, the holy sanctuary where you rest.
  • Forgiveness through the Holy Spirit lies simply in
    looking beyond error from the beginning, and thus
    keeping it unreal for you. Do not let any belief in
    its realness enter your mind, or you will also
    believe that you must undo what you have
    made in order to be forgiven.
  • God’s Final Judgment is as merciful as every step in
    His appointed plan to bless His Son, and call him to
    return to the eternal peace He shares with him.
  • Forgiveness cannot be withheld a little.
    Nor is it possible to attack for this and love
    for that and understand forgiveness.
  • My salvation comes from me.
    The seeming cost of accepting today’s idea is this:
    It means that nothing outside yourself can save you;
    nothing outside yourself can give you peace. But it
    also means that nothing outside yourselfcan hurt
    you, or disturb your peace or upset you in any way.
  • The Holy Spirits simple lessons in forgiveness
    have a power mightier than yours, because they
    call from God and from your Self to you.
  • Father, this holy instant would I give to You.
    Be You in charge. For I would follow You,
    Certain that Your direction gives me peace.
  • Ask not to be forgiven,
    for this has already been accomplished.
    Ask, rather, to learn how to forgive, and to
    restore what always was to your unforgiving mind.
    Atonement becomes real and visible
    to those who use it.
  • God goes with me wherever I go.
    How can I be alone when God always goes with me?
    How can I be doubtful and unsure of myself when
    perfect certainty abides in Him? How can I be
    disturbed by anything when He rests in me
    in absolute peace?
  • If what you offer is complete forgiveness you must
    have let guilt go, accepting the Atonement for
    yourself and learning you are guiltless. How could
    you learn what has been done for you, unknown
    to you, unless you do what you would have to do
    if it had been done for you?
  • What is forgiveness but a willingness that truth be
    true? What can remain unhealed and broken from
    a Unity Which holds all things within Itself?
    There is no sin. And every miracle is possible the
    instant that the Son of God perceives his wishes
    and the Will of God are one.
  • Strength and light unite in you,
    and where they meet, your Self stands ready to
    embrace you as Its Own. Such is the meeting place
    we try today to find and rest in, for the peace of God
    is where your Self, His Son, is waiting now
    to meet Itself again, and be as one.
  • Forgiving dreams have little need to last.
    They are not made to separate the mind from
    what it thinks. They do not seek to prove the
    dream is being dreamed by someone else.
    And in these dreams a melody is heard that
    everyone remembers, though he has not heard
    it since before all time began.
  • It is not danger that comes when
    defenses are laid down.
    It is safety. It is peace. It is joy.
    And it is God.
  • The emptiness engendered by fear must be
    replaced by forgiveness. That is what the
    Bible means by “There is no death,” and why
    I could demonstrate that death does not exist.
  • Brother, you need forgiveness of your brother, for
    you will share in madness or in Heaven together.
    And you and he will raise your eyes in faith
    together, or not at all.
  • Nothing has ever happened to disturb the
    peace of God the Father and the Son.
  • The emptiness engendered by fear must be
    replaced by forgiveness. That is what the
    Bible means by “There is no death,” and why
    I could demonstrate that death does not exist.
  • How willing are you to forgive your brother?
    How much do you desire peace instead of
    endless strife and misery and pain?
    These questions are the same, in different form.
  • Whom you forgive is given power
    to forgive you your illusions.
    By your gift of freedom is it given unto you.
  • When light has come to your brother through your
    forgiveness, he will not forget his savior, leaving
    him unsaved. For it was in your face he saw the
    light that he would keep beside him, as hewalks
    through darkness to the everlasting Light.
  • How Is Peace Possible In This World?
    God’s Word has promised that peace is
    possible here, and what He promises
    can hardly be impossible.
  • Judgment and love are opposites.
    From one come all the sorrows of the world.
    But from the other comes the peace of God Himself.
  • Not yet is Heaven quite remembered,
    for the purpose of forgiveness still remains.
    Yet everyone is certain he will go beyond
    forgiveness, and he but remains until
    it is made perfect in himself.
    He has no wish for anything but this.
  • God’s peace and joy are yours. Today we will accept
    them, knowing they belong to us. And we will try to
    understand these gifts increase as we receive them.
  • God’s Voice is offering the peace of God
    to all who hear and choose to follow Him.
    This is my choice today. And so I go to find
    the treasures God has given me.
  • The peace of God is ours, and only this will we
    accept and want. Peace be to us today. For we have
    found a simple, happy way to leave the world
    of ambiguity, and to replace our shifting goals
    and solitary dreams with single purpose
    and companionship.
  • And what is light except the resolution, born of
    peace, of all your conflicts and mistaken thoughts
    into one concept which is wholly true? Even that one
    will disappear, because the Thought behind it will
    appear instead to take its place. And now you are
    at peace forever, for the dream is over then.
  • Now has our ministry begun at last,
    to carry round the world the joyous news
    that truth has no illusions, and the peace of God,
    through us, belongs to everyone.
  • Today it will be given you to feel the peace
    forgiveness offers, and the joy the lifting of the veil
    holds out to you. Before the light you will receive
    today the world will fade until it disappears,
    and you will see another world arise you have no
    words to picture. Now we walk directly into light.
  • The face of Christ is looked upon
    before the Father is remembered.
    For He must be unremembered till His Son has
    reached beyond forgiveness to the Love of God.
    Yet is the Love of Christ accepted first.
    And then will come the knowledge They are one.
  • Peace to my mind. Let all my thoughts be still.
    Father, I come to You today to seek the peace
    that You alone can give. I come in silence.
    In the quiet of my heart, the deep recesses
    of my mind, I wait and listen for Your Voice.
  • The one remaining problem that you have is
    that you see an interval between the time when
    you forgive, and will receive the benefits
    of trusting in your brother.
  • When you have looked upon your brother with
    complete forgiveness, from which no error is
    excluded and nothing kept hidden, what mistake
    can there be anywhere you cannot overlook?
  • Only the Love of God will protect you in all
    circumstances. It will lift you out of every trial,
    and raise you high above all the perceived dangers
    of this world into a climate of perfect peace
    and safety.
  • Forgiveness removes only the untrue,
    lifting the shadows from the world and carrying it,
    safe and sure within its gentleness, to the bright
    world of new and clean perception.
    There is your purpose now.
    And it is there that peace awaits you.
  • God’s Word is given every mind which thinks that
    it has separate thoughts, and will replace these
    thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace.
    The Thought of peace was given to God’s Son
    the instant that his mind had thought of war.
  • The universe beyond the sun and stars, and all the
    thoughts of which you can conceive, belong to you.
    God’s peace is the condition for His Will.
    Attain His peace, and you remember Him.
  • Father, forgiveness is Your chosen means for
    our salvation. Let us not forget today that we
    can have no will but Yours. And thus our purpose
    must be Yours as well, if we would reach
    the peace You will for us.
  • A dream is given you in which he is your savior,
    not your enemy in hate. A dream is given you in
    which you have forgiven him for all his dreams
    of death; a dream of hope you share with him,
    instead of dreaming evil separate dreams of hate.
  • The mind which means that all it wants is peace
    must join with other minds, for that is how peace
    is obtained. And when the wish for peace is genuine,
    the means for finding it is given, in a form each
    mind that seeks for it in honesty can understand.
  • Listen, and hear your Father speak to you
    through His appointed Voice, Which silences
    the thunder of the meaningless, and shows
    the way to peace to those who cannot see.
    Be still today and listen to the truth.
  • God’s peace can never come where anger is,
    for anger must deny that peace exists.
    Who sees anger as justified in any way or any
    circumstance proclaims that peace is meaningless,
    and must believe that it cannot exist.
    In this condition, peace cannot be found.
  • In your brother you see the picture of your own
    belief in what the Will of God must be for you.
    In your forgiveness will you understand His Love
    for you; through your attack believe He hates you,
    thinking Heaven must be hell.
  • Can you imagine how beautiful those you forgive
    will look to you? In no fantasy have you ever seen
    anything so lovely. Nothing you see here, sleeping
    or waking, comes near to such loveliness.
  • Yet is the world of hatred equally unseen and
    inconceivable to those who feel God’s Love in them.
    Their world reflects the quietness and peace that
    shines in them; the gentleness and innocence they
    see surrounding them; the joy with which they
    look out from the endless wells of joy within.
  • There is a place in you where there is perfect peace.
    There is a place in you where nothing is impossible.
    There is a place in you where
    the strength of God abides.
  • You choose God’s peace, or you have asked for
    dreams. And dreams will come as you requested
    them. Yet will God’s peace come just as certainly,
    and to remain with you forever.
  • You must forgive God’s Son entirely. Or you will
    keep an image of yourself that is not whole, and
    will remain afraid to look within and find escape
    from every idol there. Salvation rests on faith there
    cannot be some forms of guilt that you cannot
    forgive. And so there cannot be appearances that
    have replaced the truth about God’s Son.
  • Nothing around you but is part of you. Look on it
    lovingly, and see the light of Heaven in it. So will
    you come to understand all that is given you. In
    kind forgiveness will the world sparkle and shine,
    and everything you once thought sinful now will
    be reinterpreted as part of Heaven.
  • The quiet of today will bless our hearts,
    and through them peace will come to everyone.
    Christ is our eyes today. And through His sight
    we offer healing to the world through Him,
    the holy Son whom God created whole;
    the holy Son whom God created one.
  • You who want peace can find it only
    by complete forgiveness.
  • Father, let me remember You are here,
    and I am not alone.
    Surrounding me is everlasting Love.
    I have no cause for anything except the
    perfect peace and joy I share with You.
  • There is no will but God’s
    I am at peace. Nothing can disturb me.
    My will and God’s are one.
    God wills peace for His Son.
    I seek His peace today.
  • There is no surer proof idolatry is what you wish
    than a belief there are some forms of sickness
    and of joylessness forgiveness cannot heal.
    This means that you prefer to keep some idols,
    and are not prepared, as yet, to let all idols go.
    And thus you think that some appearances ar
    real and not appearances at all.
  • Once forgiveness has been accepted, prayer in
    the usual sense becomes utterly meaningless.
    The prayer for forgiveness is nothing more
    than a request that you may be able to
    recognize what you already have.
  • We seek no further.
    We are close to home,
    and draw still nearer every time we say:
    There is no peace except the peace of God,
    And I am glad and thankful it is so.
  • So do we clear the way for Him today by simply
    recognizing that His Will is done already, and that
    joy and peace belong to us as His eternal gifts.
    We will not let ourselves lose sight of them
    between the times we come to seek for them
    where He has laid them.
  • The Holy Spirit in you forgives all things
    in`you and in your brother. His errors
    are`forgiven with yours.
  • If you but knew the glorious goal that lies beyond
    forgiveness, you would not keep hold on any
    thought, however light the touch of evil on it may
    appear to be. For you would understand how great
    the cost of holding anything God did not give
    in minds that can direct the hand to bless,
    and lead God’s Son unto his Father’s house.
  • Now will I seek and find the peace of God.
    In peace I was created. And in peace do I remain.
    It is not given me to change my Self.
    How merciful is God my Father, that when
    He created me He gave me peace forever.
  • You have let all bars to peace and joy be lifted up,
    and what is yours can come to you at last.
    So tell yourself, “God’s peace and joy are mine,”
    and close your eyes a while, and let His Voice assure
    you that the words you speak are true.
  • Father, today I am Your Son again.
    Today we will anticipate the time when dreams
    of sin and guilt are gone, and we have reached
    the holy peace we never left.
  • The holy instant in which you and your brother
    were united is but the messenger of love,
    sent from beyond forgiveness to remind you
    of all that lies beyond it. Yet it is through
    forgiveness that it will be remembered.
  • You keep an ancient memory before your eyes.
    And he who lives in memories alone
    is unaware of where he is.
    Forgiveness is the great release from time.
  • Beyond this world there is a world I want.
    Our emphasis is not on giving up the world, but
    on exchanging it for what is far more satisfying,
    filled with joy, and capable of offering you peace.
    Think you this world can offer that to you?
  • I am as God created me.
    Let us declare this truth as often as we can.
    This is the Word of God that sets you free.
    This is the key that opens up the gate of Heaven,
    and that lets you enter in the peace of God
    and His eternity.
  • The Holy Spirit looks through me today.
    Christ asks that He may use my eyes today,
    and thus redeem the world. He asks this gift
    that He may offer peace of mind to me,
    and take away all terror and all pain.
  • The real world shows a world seen differently,
    through quiet eyes and with a mind at peace.
    Nothing but rest is there. There are no cries of pain
    and sorrow heard, for nothing there remains
    outside forgiveness. And the sights are gentle.
    Only happy sights and sounds can reach
    the mind that has forgiven itself.
  • This world has much to offer to your peace,
    and many chances to extend your own forgiveness.
    Such its purpose is, to those who want to see
    peace and forgiveness descend on them
    and offer them the light.
  • Today’s idea continues with the thought that joy and
    peace are not but idle dreams. They are your right,
    because of what you are. They come to you from
    God, Who cannot fail to give you what He wills.
    I seek but what belongs to me in truth,
    And joy and peace are my inheritance.
  • Born as a gift for someone not perceived
    to be yourself, it has been given you.
    For your forgiveness, offered unto him,
    has been accepted now for both of you.
  • And what was once a dream of judgment
    now has changed into a dream where all is joy,
    because that is the purpose that it has.
    Only forgiving dreams can enter here, for time
    is almost over. And the forms that enter in
    the dream are now perceived as brothers,
    not in judgment, but in love.
  • The Holy Spirit forgives everything because God
    created everything. He will teach you how to see
    yourself without condemnation, by learning how
    to look on everything without it. Condemnation
    will then not be real to you, and all your errors
    will be forgiven.
  • I want the peace of God.
    The peace of God is everything I want.
    The peace of God is my one goal; the aim of all
    my living here, the end I seek, my purpose and
    my function and my life, while I abide
    where I am not at home.
  • Nothing can destroy your peace of mind
    because God goes with you wherever you go.
  • Forgiveness is the only function meaningful in time.
    It is the means the Holy Spirit uses to translate
    specialness from sin into salvation.
    Forgiveness is for all. But when it rests on all it is
    complete, and every function of this world
    completed with it. Then is time no more.
  • My heart is beating in the peace of God.
    Each heartbeat brings me peace; each breath
    infuses me with strength. I am a messenger of God,
    directed by His Voice, sustained by Him in love,
    and held forever quiet and at peace
    within His loving Arms.
  • Forgiveness, once complete, brings timelessness
    so close the song of Heaven can be heard, not with
    the ears, but with the holiness that never left the
    altar that abides forever deep within the Son of
    God. And when he hears this song again, he knows
    he never heard it not. And where is time, when
    dreams of judgment have been put away?
  • Father, it is Your peace that I would give,
    receiving it of You.
  • Go out in gladness to meet with your Redeemer,
    and walk with Him in trust out of this world, and
    into the real world of beauty and forgiveness.
  • Only forgiveness offers miracles.
    And pardon must be just to everyone.
  • The light of the world brings peace to every mind
    through my forgiveness.
  • No one forgives unless he has believed in sin
    and still believes that he has much to be forgiven.
    Forgiveness thus becomes the means by which he
    learns he has done nothing to forgive.
  • Forgiveness is the answer to attack of any kind.
    So is attack deprived of its effects,
    and hate is answered in the name of love.
  • The real world is the state of mind in which
    the only purpose of the world is seen to be
    forgiveness. Fear is not its goal, for the escape
    from guilt becomes its aim. The value of
    forgiveness is perceived and takes the place
    of idols, which are sought no longer,
    for their “gifts” are not held dear.
  • Reality is never frightening.
    It is impossible that it could upset me.
    Reality brings only perfect peace.
  • Death will not claim the future now, for life is
    now its goal, and all the needed means are happily
    provided. Who can grieve or suffer when the
    present has been freed, extending its security
    and peace into a quiet future filled with joy?
  • In dreams of murder and attack are you the victim
    in a dying body slain. But in forgiving dreams is
    no one asked to be the victim and the sufferer.
    These are the happy dreams the miracle exchanges
    for your own. It does not ask you make another;
    only that you see you made the one you would
    exchange for this.
  • Rest in the Holy Spirit, and allow His gentle
    dreams to take the place of those you dreamed
    in terror and in fear of death. He brings forgiving
    dreams, in which the choice is not who is the
    murderer and who shall be the victim.
  • Conflict is sleep, and peace awakening.
    Death is illusion; life, eternal truth.
    There is no opposition to Your Will.
    There is no conflict, for my will is Yours.
  • Now are you ready to accept the gift of peace
    and joy that God has given you.
    Now are you ready to experience the joy
    and peace you have denied yourself.
    Now you can say, “God’s peace and joy are mine,”
    for you have given what you would receive.
  • Father, Your peace is mine. What need have I
    to fear that anything can rob me of what You
    would have me keep? I cannot lose Your gifts to me.
    And so the peace You gave Your Son is with me still,
    in quietness and in my own eternal love for You.
  • Today we will attempt to offer peace to everyone,
    and see how quickly peace returns to us.
    Light is tranquility, and in that peace is
    vision given us, and we can see.
    To everyone I offer quietness.
    To everyone I offer peace of mind.
  • The light has come.
    The light has come. You are healed and you can heal.
    The light has come. You are saved and you can save.
    You are at peace, and you bring peace with you
    wherever you go.
  • And when the memory of God has come to you in
    the holy place of forgiveness you will remember
    nothing else, and memory will be as useless as
    learning, for your only purpose will be creating.
  • Forgiving dreams are means to step aside from
    dreaming of a world outside yourself.
    And leading finally beyond all dreams
    unto the peace of everlasting life.
  • Forgiveness is the healing of the perception
    of separation. Correct perception of your
    brother is necessary, because minds have
    chosen to see themselves as separate.
    Spirit knows God completely.
  • The peace of God is shining in me now.
    Why wait for Heaven? Those who seek the light are
    merely covering their eyes. The light is in them now.
  • Father, I would abide in You,
    and know no laws except Your law of love.
    And I would find the peace which You created
    for Your Son, forgetting all the foolish toys
    I made as I behold Your glory and my own.
  • There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.
    Who uses but Christ’s vision finds a peace so deep
    and quiet, undisturbable and wholly changeless,
    that the world contains no counterpart.
    Comparisons are still before this peace.
  • There is a hope of happiness in him so sure
    and constant he can barely stay and wait a little
    longer, with his feet still touching earth. Yet is he
    glad to wait till every hand is joined, and every
    heart made ready to arise and go with him.
    For thus is he made ready for the step in
    which is all forgiveness left behind.
  • O my brothers, if you only knew the peace that
    will envelop you and hold you safe and pure
    and lovely in the Mind of God, you could but
    rush to meet Him where His altar is.
  • Are you invulnerable? Then the world is harmless
    in your sight. Do you forgive? Then is the world
    forgiving, for you have forgiven it its trespasses,
    and so it looks on you with eyes that see as yours.
  • Is it too much to ask a little trust for him
    who carries Christ to you, that you may be
    forgiven all your sins, and left without a single one
    you cherish still? Forget not that a shadow held
    between your brother and yourself obscures
    the face of Christ and memory of God.
  • Miracle-minded forgiveness is only correction.
    It has no element of judgment at all. The statement
    “Father forgive them for they know not what they
    do” in no way evaluates what they do. It is an appeal
    to God to heal their minds. There is no reference to
    the outcome of the error. That does not matter.
  • I am one Self, united with my Creator.
    Serenity and perfect peace are mine,
    because I am one Self, completely whole,
    at one with all creation and with God.
  • My brother, peace and joy I offer you,
    That I may have God’s peace and joy as mine.
  • I seek but the eternal. For Your Son can be content
    with nothing less than this. What, then, can be his
    solace but what You are offering to his bewildered
    mind and frightened heart, to give him
    certainty and bring him peace?
  • Forgiveness shows us that God’s Will is one,
    and that we share it. Let us look upon the holy
    sights forgiveness shows today, that we may
    find the peace of God.
    Amen.
  • My sinlessness ensures me perfect peace, eternal
    safety, everlasting love, freedom forever from
    all thought of loss; complete deliverance from
    suffering. And only happiness can be my state,
    for only happiness is given me.
  • Peace is the answer to conflicting goals,
    to senseless journeys, frantic, vain pursuits,
    and meaningless endeavors.
    Now the way is easy, sloping gently toward the
    bridge where freedom lies within the peace of God.
  • Forgiveness cannot be for one and not the other.
    Who forgives is healed. And in his healing lies the
    proof that he has truly pardoned, and retains no
    trace of condemnation that he still would hold
    against himself or any living thing.
  • I am the light of the world.
    How holy am I, who have been given the function
    of lighting up the world! Let me be still before
    my holiness. In its calm light let all my conflicts
    disappear. In its peace let me remember Who I am.
  • Forgiveness is not pity, which but seeks to pardon
    what it thinks to be the truth. Good cannot be
    returned for evil, for forgiveness does not first
    establish sin and then forgive it.
  • No one who truly seeks the peace of God can fail to
    find it. For he merely asks that he deceive himself no
    longer by denying to himself what is God’s Will.
  • Your sinlessness is guaranteed by God.
    Nothing can touch it, or change what God created
    as eternal. The self you made, evil and full of sin,
    is meaningless. Your sinlessness is guaranteed
    by God, and light and joy and peace abide in you.
  • There is no peace except the peace of God.
    Seek you no further. You will not find peace except
    the peace of God. Accept this fact, and save yourself
    the agony of yet more bitter disappointments, bleak
    despair, and sense of icy hopelessness and doubt.
  • Sin is attacked by punishment, and so preserved.
    But to forgive it is to change its state
    from error into truth.
  • Forgive the past and let it go, for it is gone.
    You stand no longer on the ground that lies between
    the worlds. You have gone on, and reached the world
    that lies at Heaven’s gate. There is no hindrance
    to the Will of God, nor any need that you repeat
    again a journey that was over long ago.
  • And so, my Father, would I pass this day with You.
    Your Son has not forgotten You.
    The peace You gave him still is in his mind,
    and it is there I choose to spend today.
  • I am in need of nothing but the truth.
    Now I see that I need only truth. In that all needs
    are satisfied, all cravings end, all hopes are finally
    fulfilled and dreams are gone. Now have I everything
    that I could need. Now have I everything that I
    could want. And now at last I find myself at peace.
Where could your peace arise but from forgiveness?
The Christ in you looks only on the truth, and
sees no condemnation that could need forgiveness.
He is at peace because He sees no sin.
I could see peace instead of this.
