Rise Far Beyond 
CHAPTER SEVENTEEN
"FORGIVENESS AND HEALING"
IX. "The Conditions of Forgiveness"

79 When you accepted truth as the goal for your relationship, you became givers of peace as surely as your Father gave peace to you. For the goal of peace cannot be accepted apart from its conditions, and you had faith in it, for no one accepts what he does not believe is real. Your purpose has not changed and will not change, for you accepted what can never change. And nothing that it needs to be forever changeless can you now withhold from it. Your release is certain. Give as you have received. And demonstrate that you have risen far beyond any situation that could hold you back and keep you separate from Him Whose call you answered.

All things are lessons
God would have me learn.

AUDIO><VIDEO>
  Voice and Music by CIMS SonShip Radio


God does not know of learning. Yet His Will

   extends to what He does not understand

   in that He wills the happiness His Son

   inherited of Him be undisturbed;

   eternal and forever gaining scope,

   eternally expanding in the joy

   of full creation, and eternally

   open and wholly limitless in Him.

   This is His Will. And thus His Will provides

   the means to guarantee that it is done.

 

   God sees no contradictions. Yet His Son

   believes he sees them. Thus he has a need

   for One Who can correct his erring sight,

   and give him vision that will lead him back

   to where perception ceases. God does not

   perceive at all. Yet it is He Who gives

   the means by which perception is made true

   and beautiful enough to let the light

   of Heaven shine upon it. It is He

   Who answers what His Son would contradict,

   and keeps his sinlessness forever safe.

 

    ****** New Material ***************

 

- God offers no forgiveness, for He knows

  no sin is possible. And yet He let

  His holy law of Love be given form

  in which it could be given to the world.

  And He created One Who could perceive

  what form this law should take, to be received

  by every mind which had forgotten it

  as it exists in Heaven and in God.

  Thus He encompassed what He could not see

  nor understand by giving of His Love

  and making answer to a question which,

  though meaningless, His Son had asked of Him.

 

- The One Whom God created to replace

  the foolish thoughts which crept into the mind

  of His most holy Son with peace and joy

  fulfills His function now. He redirects

  each lesson you would teach in hate to one

  in which forgiveness enters, and returns

  the hate to love, so that the fear is gone.

  And now guilt cannot enter, for its source

  has been excluded as the purpose of

  the lesson has been changed to guiltlessness;

  the hatred has been rooted out by love.

 

    ***********************

 

   These are the lessons God would have you learn.

   His Will reflects them all, and they reflect

   His loving kindness to the Son He loves.

   Each lesson has a central thought, the same

   in each of them. The form alone is changed,

   with different circumstances and events;

   with different characters and different themes

   apparent but not real. They are the same

   in fundamental content. It is this:

   Forgive and you will see this differently.

 

   Certain it is that all distress does not

   appear to be but unforgiveness. Yet

   that is the content underneath the form.

   It is this sameness that makes learning sure,

   because the lesson is so simple that

   it cannot be rejected in the end.

   No-one can hide forever from a truth

   so very obvious that it appears

   in countless forms, and yet is recognized

   as easily in all of them, if one

   but wants to see the simple lesson there.

 

   "Forgive and you will see this differently."

   These are the words the Holy Spirit speaks

   in all your tribulations, all your pains,

   all suffering regardless of its forms.

   These are the words with which temptation ends

   and guilt, abandoned, is revered no more.

   These are the words which end the dream of sin,

   and rid the mind of fear. These are the words

   by which salvation comes to all the world.

 

-  Shall we not learn to say these words when we

   are tempted to believe that pain is real,

   and death becomes our choice instead of life?

   Shall we not learn to say these words when we

   have understood their power to release

   all minds from bondage? These are words which give

   you power over all events which seem

   to have been given power over you.

   You see them rightly when you hold these words

   in full awareness, and do not forget

   these words apply to everything you see

   or any brother looks upon amiss.

 

   How can you tell when you are seeing wrong,

   or someone else is failing to perceive

   the lesson he should learn? Does pain seem real

   in the perception? If it does, be sure

   the lesson is not learned, and there remains

   an unforgiveness hiding in the mind

   which sees the pain through eyes the mind directs.

 

   God would not have you suffer thus. He would

   help you forgive yourself. His Son does not

   remember who he is. And God would have

   him not forget His Love, and all the gifts

   His Love brings with It. Would you now renounce

   your own salvation? Would you fail to learn

   the simple lessons Heaven's Teacher sets

   before you that all pain may disappear,

   and God may be remembered by His Son?

 

   All things are lessons God would have you learn.

   He would not leave an unforgiving thought

   without correction, nor one thorn or nail

   to hurt His sacred Son in any way.

   He would ensure his holy rest remain

   untroubled and serene, without a care

   in an eternal home which cares for him.

   And He would have all tears be wiped away,

   with none remaining yet unshed, and none

   but waiting their appointed time to fall.

   For God has willed that laughter should replace

   each one, and that His Son be free again.

 

   We will attempt today to overcome

   a thousand seeming obstacles to peace

   in just one day. Let mercy come to you

   more quickly. Do not try to hold it off

   another day, another minute or

   another instant. Time was made for this.

   Use it today for what its purpose is.

   Morning and night devote what time you can

   to serve its proper aim, and do not let

   the time be less than meets your deepest need.

  

   Give all you can and give a little more,

   for now we would arise in haste, and go

   unto our Father's house. We have been gone

   too long, and we would linger here no more.

   And as we practice, let us think about

   all things we saved to settle by ourselves,

   and kept apart from healing. Let us give

   them all to Him Who knows the way to look

   upon them so they all will disappear.

   Truth is His message; truth His teaching is.

   His are the lessons God would have us learn.

 

   Each hour spend a little time today,

   and in the days to come in practicing

   the lesson in forgiveness in the form

   established for the day. And try to give

   it application to the happenings

   the hour brought, so that the next one is

   free of the one before. The chains of time

   are easily unloosened in this way.

  

   Let no one hour cast its shadow on

   the one that follows, and when that one goes,

   let everything that happened in its course

   go with it. Thus will you remain unbound,

   in peace eternal in the world of time.|

   This is the lesson God would have you learn:

   There is a way to look on everything

   that lets it be to you another step

   to Him and to salvation of the world.

 

   To all that speaks of terror, answer thus,

   "I will forgive and this will disappear."

   To every apprehension, every care,

   and every form of suffering, repeat

   these selfsame words. In them you hold the key

   that opens Heaven's gate, and brings the Love

   of God the Father down to earth at last,

   to raise it up to Heaven. God will take

   this final step Himself. Do not deny

   the little steps He asks you take to Him.|

*IAMBIC PENTAMETER*

1 Our next few lessons make a special point of firming up your willingness to make your weak commitment strong, your scattered goals blend into one intent. You are not asked for total dedication all the time, as yet. But you are asked to practice now in order to attain the sense of peace such unified commitment will bestow, if only intermittently. It is experiencing this which makes it sure that you will give your total willingness to following the way the course sets forth.

2 Our lessons now are geared specifically to widening horizons and direct approaches to the special blocks which keep your vision narrow and too limited to let you see the value of our goal. We are attempting now to lift these blocks, however briefly. Words alone can not convey the sense of liberation which their lifting brings. But the experience of freedom and of peace that comes as you give up your tight control of what you see speaks for itself. Your motivation will be so intensified that words become of little consequence. You will be sure of what you want and what is valueless.

3 And so we start our journey beyond words by concentrating first on what impedes our progress still. Experience of what exists beyond defensiveness remains beyond achievement while it is denied. It may be there, but you cannot accept its presence. So we now attempt to go past all defenses for a little while each day. No more than this is asked because no more than this is needed. It will be enough to guarantee the rest will come.

Lesson 193
All things are lessons
God would have me learn.

Sarah's Commentary:

This is an important lesson and can be easily misunderstood because we are confused about the idea of God and lessons. It is valuable to look at our current thinking about God and lessons to really uncover all of our false and strange ideas about who God is and what our beliefs are about his role in our lives regarding what we are here to learn. The lesson title sounds like God wants us to learn something yet the first line says that God does not know of learning. The function we are given, through the Holy Spirit is to apply forgiveness. We are learning to let go of our unworthiness and self hate to remember who we really are. Shining behind all appearances is the radiant Self waiting to be revealed.

We are the ones that bring about the lessons, not God. "And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked." (T.21.II.2.5). The correction, available through the Holy Spirit, is that there is another way of looking at everything. His interpretation is always that we are the guiltless Son of God. While the script for our lives has been written by us, outside of this dream of time and space, it can serve a different purpose when the events of our lives are given over to the Holy Spirit for healing. What this means to me is basically summed up in the word "humility." It is to admit that I am not in control of my life and everything I have taught myself, every concept I hold, all thoughts of good and bad, are wrong. Now I can humbly ask for help in receiving a new interpretation from what I have perceived. In other words, it is to stop thinking I know and to allow room for a new perception by stepping back and following Someone Who does know. This is the Holy Spirit Who is in the right mind as a symbol of the love that we are. In every challenging situation and every difficult encounter, we have the opportunity to choose to forgive so we can see everything in the script of our lives through the eyes of love. With that choice comes the memory of who we are, which becomes apparent when we release our judgments and our desire to be right.

What we have taught ourselves is that we are the victims of the world and that we have to get from others what they have taken from us. In other words, we blame others for our condition in this world. When the pain of this kind of position becomes great enough, we become motivated to look for another way, meaning another teacher, no longer turning to our ego for guidance. We realize that turning to the ego only brings more suffering. As Jesus asks, would you rather be right (about the way you see the situation) or happy by giving it over to the Holy Spirit for His interpretation? This is what Jesus calls an invitation to the Holy Spirit, and we turn to Him when we realize that listening to our own thoughts has never brought us peace.

The Holy Spirit does not send us lessons. He knows our perfection, but He needs our cooperation.  We need to be willing to bring our misperceptions to Him so that we can be shown that there is a better way. He will give us a new way of seeing. We think that the world is outside of us causing us to feel a certain way, but it is just a screen on which we project what is in our minds. With desire and willingness we can return to that choice point in our minds were we chose wrongly in the first place and now we can make another choice.

Let's look at some of the ways we currently address the problems in our lives, which come from our victim perspective. Our first thought may be to feel victimized by God. This may or may not be conscious. Our unconscious thought may be something like "why is this happening to me?" "what have I done to deserve this?" or more specifically directed at God, as to "why is God punishing me" or "what is the lesson that God is bringing me?" Jesus tells us, "God does not perceive at all." (W.193.2.4) If that is the case, then God can't possibly have anything to do with this dualistic world of perception as He can only know Oneness, but He hasn't left us without Help. He has given us the Holy Spirit "Who gives the means by which perception is made true and beautiful enough to let the light of Heaven shine upon it." (2.5)

This is in sharp contrast to how we function in the world left to our own devices. We may try to strategize how to solve the situations that cause us pain. We bring solutions to the problem based on past experiences, and if we successfully resolve the problem and our needs are met, then we are happy, but the solutions we apply and the powerlessness and victimization we feel will never address the true source of our distress, which is the guilt in our minds. Only by releasing the guilt through forgiveness will we experience true peace.

In all these situations that we encounter, if we don't turn them over for healing, we reinforce ideas about ourselves as bodies. We think that we are on our own, trying to solve problems that can never be truly solved, that we need to defend against outside forces, and that happiness is elusive and dependent on outside conditions. These are all misguided perspectives that continue to perpetuate the dream. The only undoing that is possible, the source of our true happiness, is in turning to the Holy Spirit. This is the only lesson to be learned.

We come into this world, where we think the game is already on and we somehow have to teach ourselves the rules of how to play this game. We feel alone in this process of learning, but increasingly we either make adjustments to the world and learn to play the game, or we fail at the seeming requirements. Either way we feel increasingly unworthy and unable to figure out how to achieve the peace and happiness that we all seek. We have all learned lessons in this game of life and they form our concepts and beliefs about ourselves. Many lessons we learn through pain. If we have gone through several difficult relationships, we may learn not to trust again. If we were punished for cheating at school, we may learn not to cheat, or to get better at it. In any event, the meaning that we give to each of these events is part of how we learn to get along in the world.

No matter what the form of our ego lessons, the content of them is always the same, which is more guilt, more unworthiness and despair. The ego is trying to teach us that we are separate from God, that we have spoiled our perfection, that our will is different from God's, that we are not as God created us, that we are born in a body and are flawed and separate. It reinforces the idea that our strength is in us alone and thus we can only depend on these limited, vulnerable selves that we think we are. The world is throwing things at us and we feel it is up to us to figure out what to do. We are constantly changing and adjusting to external circumstances, trying to be nice, but sometimes the world just pushes us too far. All of these lessons reinforce the smallness of our existence in a world doing things to us. We think that that includes God, who sends us lessons, which we try to discern as to their meaning. This is the god of the ego that is talked about in the Laws of Chaos, "For if God cannot be mistaken, He must accept His Son's belief in what he is, and hate him for it." (T.23.II.6.6) In other words, God just becomes a more powerful ego who has become the enemy who sends us difficult lessons and we can't then trust Him or turn to Him.

The single lesson in all this is that the world is the cause and we are the effect. The ego does a good job of teaching us this lesson. It teaches us to protect and defend ourselves physically and emotionally, but Jesus shows us that the only lesson is forgiveness, which is the reflection of God's Will---love. The Holy Spirit sees the same content behind all forms. The content behind all forms is the love that we are. It is hidden behind the forms. It is our reality, which we can't change. The only reason that we don't know that is because we hold thoughts of anger, distress, victimhood, demands, expectations, betrayal, lack, loneliness, and unworthiness that cloud our minds. These are the thoughts that we need to bring to awareness so that they can be released. That is what forgiveness offers. In other words, no matter what is going on around you and no matter the nature of the problem, the answer is always forgiveness. This is the central thought regardless of circumstances and events that we encounter or the "different characters and different themes," (3.4) that are part of this dream. No matter what problems we seem to have, behind them all is the Holy Spirit's purpose of forgiveness. Forgiveness shows us that none of the seeming problems of this world are real. Thus in every problem the answer is always the same. It is to recognize, through forgiveness, that they are all unreal.

All learning is about how to perceive correctly. God does not understand the condition we are in, as He knows us only as complete and whole. He wants us to return Home to Him, so He has given us the Holy Spirit to be our Guide and Helper. While the events, circumstances, different characters and different themes in our lives all seem unique and different for each of us they all contain the same lesson. "Forgive and you will see this differently." (3.7)

I had a situation in my life where I was being sued by someone. I perceived her doing something to me that brought me pain and distress. I was angry at her for the pain that I perceived was caused by her actions. I felt victimized, betrayed and hurt. I questioned what I had done to deserve this and how I could solve the situation, but then the realization came that I had been given an opportunity to see how I was keeping us both bound to guilt. I was using this situation to show that I was right in how I set all of this up, to prove that I could be victimized, that I was vulnerable to attack, that she was guilty and I was innocent, that the problem really did exist out there, and that my suffering did not seem to come from my own guilt. Yet, Jesus says that that is precisely the content under all form, and that is what he says makes the lesson "so simple that it cannot be rejected in the end." (4.3) It is that whatever I find difficult has no external cause. My mind had set up this situation to prove the ego's lesson of guilt and fear. This lesson can only be solved in the mind where the problem originated in the first place. If we have guilt in the mind, we will call into our lives these situations that bring the punishment that we think we have coming to us. The only answer is to bring the guilt to the truth, remembering that we are never upset for the reason we think. (W.5)

Jesus recognizes that to us "all distress does not appear to be but unforgiveness." (4.1) If that is truly the content behind all events, circumstances and situations in our lives, then eventually we will learn that the sameness of the content makes our learning sure. We will get so many examples of problems over and over and over that eventually we will see that the only real change possible is through forgiveness. The answer is always the same, no matter what the form of the problem. We will always suffer until we get this. Lack of forgiveness is where all pain comes from. Jesus says to learn this is simple. Why is that? Because there is only one answer. We don't have to figure out a whole series of lessons to be learned. It is all the same. Forgive and you will see this differently.

Does this mean that we don't take any action in the world? Of course not, but it does mean that the actions we take come from a place of peace, a place of forgiveness and through guidance. Ultimately Jesus reminds us that we have no control over the world we made. (T. 12.III.9.4) Yet all the lessons we teach ourselves about living in this world are about learning how to get control, but this is all illusion. It is only the illusion of control. Yet he goes on to remind us that we do have control over our own mind. Thus every situation in the world can teach us forgiveness. We can learn that it is never the world that causes us pain, but our mistaken choice for the separation. Through forgiveness we are undoing this decision to be separate. We are learning that we have been wrong, but can now turn to the Holy Spirit Who is the answer to all of our pain and suffering. We can learn to see everything, not as a threat, not as loss, not as attack, but as a step in our own healing and thus as a step to wholeness and to God.

It is quite a simple thing to see our wrong choice in any moment, says Jesus. "Does pain seem real in the perception? If it does, be sure the lesson is not learned." (7.2-3) What is that lesson? It is that there still is unforgiveness hiding in the mind. It means that I am choosing to see through the wrong perception of the ego. It means that there is still guilt in the mind that is calling to be undone. It is irrelevant whether I see the pain in me or in you as it is the same. If I see victims and perpetrators in the world, I am seeing through my own guilt. I am choosing not to be at peace. Thus forgiveness is called for. I recognize that I am using this situation to keep myself from the love that I am and I need help to forgive myself for my wrong perception. Jesus says that "God would not have you suffer thus. He would help you forgive yourself." (8.1-2) Suffering is something we impose on ourselves. If we choose to suffer we are renouncing our salvation (happiness). (8.4)

It is on behalf of our own happiness that Jesus pleads with us to, "Let mercy come to you more quickly." (10.2) The guilt in our minds makes us think we don't deserve mercy, but time is ours to use for the purpose of undoing the guilt in our minds so we can "overcome a thousand seeming obstacles to peace in just one day." (10.1) He says we have been gone from our Father's house much too long. (11.2) Why would we linger and keep our suffering apart from healing, when it could all disappear with the Help available to us?

Today, whatever the situation, whether a computer breaks down, a relationship is not working, or someone steals your car, instead of looking for the lesson in the world, or trying to figure out what to do, what if you looked on everything that seemed to be happening and let "it be to you another step to Him, and to salvation of the world?" (13.1) Yes the situation may still be there to be attended to, but the distress of it is gone when we forgive. Forgiveness is about looking at the ego without judgment or fear. Now the problem, as we have defined it, has disappeared. With forgiveness, the power of that situation to hurt us has now been neutralized. That is what each situation is there to teach us over and over and over until forgiveness becomes our entire focus for our time in this world.

Today we remind ourselves, "I will forgive, and this will disappear." (13.3) With "every apprehension, every care and every form of suffering," (13.4) and everything that bothers us, we can see it differently by looking at our thoughts about it, without judgment. Today, it is important in watching the mind not to let the seemingly little annoyances and irritations go by without taking time to look. The more we practice this daily the more we make every instant a holy instant and take the steps necessary to open Heaven's gate. The words of this lesson, "I will forgive and see this differently," (5.1) have immense power when sincerely applied to every situation. These are the little steps "He asks you take to Him." (13.7)

Chapter Seventeen

Forgiveness and Healing

IX. The Conditions of Forgiveness                   

74 The holy instant is nothing more than a special case or an extreme example of what every situation is meant to be. The meaning which the Holy Spirit's purpose has given it is also given to every situation. It calls forth just the same suspension of faithlessness, withheld and left unused, that faith might answer to the call of truth. The holy instant is the shining example, the clear and unequivocal demonstration of the meaning of every relationship and every situation, seen as a whole. Faith has accepted every aspect of the situation, and faithlessness has not forced any exclusion on it. It is a situation of perfect peace simply because you have let it be what it is.

 

75 This simple courtesy is all the Holy Spirit asks of you. Let truth be what it is. Do not intrude upon it, do not attack it, do not interrupt its coming. Let it encompass every situation and bring you peace. Not even faith is asked of you, for truth asks nothing. Let it enter, and it will call forth and secure for you the faith you need for peace. But rise you not against it, for against your opposition it cannot come.

 

76 Would you not want to make a holy instant of every situation? For such is the gift of faith, freely given wherever faithlessness is laid aside unused. And then the power of the Holy Spirit's purpose is free to use instead. This power instantly transforms all situations into one sure and continuous means for establishing His purpose and demonstrating its reality. What has been demonstrated has called for faith and has been given it. Now it becomes a fact from which faith can no longer be withheld. The strain of refusing faith to truth is enormous and far greater than you realize. But to answer truth with faith entails no strain at all.

 

77 To you who have acknowledged the call of your Redeemer, the strain of not responding to His call seems to be greater than before. This is not so. Before, the strain was there but you attributed it to something else, believing that the "something else" produced it. This was never true. For what the "something else" produced was sorrow and depression, sickness and pain, darkness and dim imaginings of terror, cold fantasies of fear and fiery dreams of hell. And it was nothing but the intolerable strain of refusing to give faith to truth and see its evident reality.

 

78 Such was the crucifixion of the Son of God. His faithlessness did this to him. Think carefully before you let yourself use faithlessness against him. For he is risen, and you have accepted the cause of his awakening as yours. You have assumed your part in his redemption, and you are now fully responsible to him. Fail him not now, for it has been given you to realize what your lack of faith in him must mean to you. His salvation is your only purpose. See only this in every situation, and it will be a means for bringing only this.

 

79 When you accepted truth as the goal for your relationship, you became givers of peace as surely as your Father gave peace to you. For the goal of peace cannot be accepted apart from its conditions, and you had faith in it, for no one accepts what he does not believe is real. Your purpose has not changed and will not change, for you accepted what can never change. And nothing that it needs to be forever changeless can you now withhold from it. Your release is certain. Give as you have received. And demonstrate that you have risen far beyond any situation that could hold you back and keep you separate from Him Whose call you answered.
