All things are lessons God would have me learn.

.
* That means everything.
.
1. God does not know of learning.
.
* Because He has Knowledge. (Which He can give to you while you are still mortal.)
.
²Yet 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.
.
* Think of a little child.
.
* Note the “eternally expanding” which confuses me because Jesus “said” in the previous lesson that creation is completed. Is this a convoluted eternal principle or evidence of misinformation (intended or otherwise)? This idea of “eternally expanding in the joy of full creation, and eternally open and wholly limitless in Him (God)” seems more in line with who I know God to be.
.
³That is His Will. ⁴And thus His Will provides the means to guarantee that it is done.
.
* The repetition in this reference (1:1-3) is similar to what I recognize as the way Jesus speaks of important issues.
.
2. God sees no contradictions. ²Yet His Son believes he sees them.
.
* There are no polarities, no opposites, no NEED for contrast except in the fear-based mind of the Son of God.
.
³Thus 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.
.
* This One is the Holy Spirit, the Voice Within. “…where perception ceases.” and knowledge of God Resides? That has been my experience. And as such I become as a little child with fresh eyes for everything, listening and watching for the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of all things.
.
⁴God does not perceive at all. ⁵Yet 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. ⁶It is He Who answers what His Son would contradict, and keeps his sinlessness forever safe.
.
* God steps in and covers for us. And people who call themselves students of the Course can say that they are God and that there is no God except for themselves? Is God psychotic and only seeing an invisible Son? I do not think so and my walk in this “life” has not led me to that conclusion.
.
3. These are the lessons God would have you learn.
.
* There is not anything in this Course that teaches non-duality except for interpretations of Kenneth Wapnick and his devoted students. I am tempted to say, “worshippers” or disciples.” Not unlike what was done to Jesus of Nazareth. They do not realize that they put the reputation and influence of a mortal before God and claim him an “enlightened being, who knew the Course inside and out the moment he picked it up”. There is something wrong with this picture and do not read further if you do not want to hear me discuss it.
.
²His Will reflects them all, and they reflect His loving kindness to the Son He loves.
.
* God’s Will gives God’s Son the essence of loving kindness through the witness of God’s Love for the Son and nothing else constitutes love here in the physical world or anywhere else.
.
³Each lesson has a central thought, the same in all of them. ⁴The form alone is changed, with different circumstances and events; with different characters and different themes, apparent but not real. ⁵They are the same in fundamental content. ⁶It is this: ⁷Forgive, and you will see this differently.
.
* That message or lesson that God has given to us in each circumstance has been manipulated by the ego so that it is YOU that has the power to forgive instead of it being YOUR ALLOWANCE of letting the Holy Spirit SHOW YOU that there could be NOTHING TO FORGIVE because GOD IS.
.
* Today we think we can pat ourselves on the back, say that “we have forgiven everything because of our personal magnificence” and claim Divinity of our Own Accord. Which many students ERRONEOUSLY have.
.
* I DO NOT for a moment believe that was the intention of A Course In Miracles.
.
4. Certain it is that all distress does not appear to be but unforgiveness. ²Yet that is the content underneath the form.
.
* And this is NOT accepted without piety, without the witness of the Holy Spirit and acknowledging that the witness inside you came from someplace other than yourself. IN THIS (the witness of the Holy Spirit) do you KNOW that God exists.
.
* This kind of verbiage is what causes me to think Helen was being gaslit and bullied so that she became confused and allowed this misleading wording to be in the Course. There is story after story to be found of how smooth KW demeanor was and how he cajoled people out of their disagreements with him. Definition: persuade (someone) to do something by sustained coaxing or flattery:”he hoped to cajole her into selling the house”
.
* And William Thetford said “I am a body. It is sickly, get me to the doctor quickly.” That was not simply a pun as it has been described, it was the man’s life because he had a heart condition. He would have been easy to bully. Then add to this his being gay and this would give another form of attack and manipulation and the conflict between Ken and Bill are well known by those who knew them.
.
³It is this sameness which makes learning sure, because the lesson is so simple that it cannot be rejected in the end.
.
* The sameness “that is the content underneath the form” is that CREATION is the Son of God. And was CREATED by God. The Son has the ability to create but in misusing it has only manifested a false world of confusion and pain which the Father corrects because God knows the truth that His Son has forgotten or denied and that is that HE IS EXACTLY LIKE HIS FATHER. Exactly like is NOT the same thing as BEING the Father.
.
⁴No 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.
.
* The only reason forgiveness works IS BECAUSE GOD IS. This significant concept was removed and was attempted to be removed from the Course entirely.
.
5. Forgive, and you will see this differently.
²These are the words the Holy Spirit speaks in all your tribulations, all your pain, all suffering regardless of its form.
.
* The Holy Spirit is the Voice of God and does not come from you. (It is not your conscience. That is more parents, teachers, etc. and Jesus has a part in there too if I remember correctly in the Urtext toward the end but I am not certain. You want to get the conscience to be your Higher Self choosing to listen to the Holy Spirit. And you will know Him because He testifies you are loved and not guilty.)
.
³These are the words with which temptation ends, and guilt, abandoned, is revered no more.
.
* Guilt leaves only because GOD IS. You DO NOT have the power to forgive yourself or anyone else. Only the witness of God by the Power and Voice of the Holy Spirit are you able to forgive.
.
⁴These are the words which end the dream of sin, and rid the mind of fear. ⁵These are the words by which salvation comes to all the world.
.
* ONLY if God is included in the equation.
.
6. 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?
.
* If you say them without acknowledging God the words are hollow and have no eternal reality. Though it may alter your experience with the world AND how you think about yourself here.
.
²Shall we not learn to say these words when we have understood their power to release all minds from bondage?
.
* This breaks my heart to think of how many people have accepted this teaching and denied God in the process. And it IRKS me to think I fell for some of the concepts that came with that false teaching but I know in my heart that God IS and that this is a confusing place we have manifested where we think we are grown up enough to think for ourselves when really, we don’t have to do all that thinking if we only understand that God Loves us NOT UNCONDITIONALLY but because God knows who we ARE. We ARE HIS, we are made of HIM and our delusions of insanity and depravity are not real.
.
³These are words which give you power over all events that seem to have been given power over you.
.
* IF you understand what makes them real. If you understand that it is not possible for you to not be what your Father in Heaven IS you will not only have apparent power here in the world (This is not only like using Nuero Linguistic Programming, NLP). If you understand that God IS, HE LITERALLY takes you unto Himself and His Love shines into the world of confusion because you are there and have brought Heaven to earth.
.
⁴You 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.
.
* Yes, ALL of the Sonship must be included in the forgiveness because God made ALL of creation which IS HIS SON.
.
7. How can you tell when you are seeing wrong, or someone else is failing to perceive the lesson he should learn?
.
* “Or if someone else is failing to perceive the lesson he should learn?” Is that not judging someone? The language just does not appear to be that of Jesus.
.
* This is not something that needs to go on and off like a switch. If you know that God IS and that we all together are His Son who got confused about who we are it can be forgiven and when you do have challenges here or feel any sort of pain you understand that it is not real, not lasting and you rest in that surety that comes from the Holy Spirit because you know that God IS by the Holy Spirit’s Witness.
.
²Does pain seem real in the perception?
.
³If it does, be sure the lesson is not learned.
.
⁴And there remains an unforgiveness hiding in the mind that sees the pain through eyes the mind directs.
.
* If this is not a good way to gaslight someone I do not know what is. Emperor go get your clothes on! If you are in pain you are WRONG. How that must have been held over Bill’s head. He was a sensitive man, and so was Helen, especially to the needs of others. If ANYONE claimed ANY discomfort about anything THIS PASSAGE alone would stop them in their tracks and stops people in chats etc. What a PERFECT place for the EGO to HIDE. Right in the middle of the teachings of Jesus! Why not, it makes perfect sense.
.
* And we will even bring God into the picture now that we have affirmed that you alone have the power because you use the words “I forgive.”
.

8. God would not have you suffer thus.
.
* You, a part of the Son of God.
.
²He would help you forgive yourself.
.
* God would help you by sending the Holy Spirit to testify of your place in the Sonship.
.
³His Son does not remember who he is.
.
* You do not remember who you are as part of the Sonship that is Christ.
.
⁴And God would have him not forget His Love, and all the gifts His Love brings with it.
.
* And God would not have you forget your Father’s Love, and all the gifts His Love brings with it.
.
⁵Would you now renounce your own salvation?
.
* Yes, if you do not acknowledge 1 God, 2 Christ, and 3 your part in the Sonship that is Christ.
.
⁶Would 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?
.
* Heaven’s Teacher is the Holy Spirit. Pain becomes understandable, it does NOT disappear. You are part of the Sonship that is Christ if you remember that there is DUALITY in the Father and the Son, otherwise, you are simply EGO willing to worship idols as we have seen in the ancient “church”, currently, as we follow “prophets” or “enlightened ones” instead of the Holy Spirit, and in the founding “Idols” of ACIM.

This has powerful paradigm-shifting potential. Please read it through once without judgment then go through it again. Misleading remarks are not seen when “we do not want to see them.” It has taken me ten years of reviewing this material to know that I cannot excuse or turn away from what occurred here and what is happening to the teachings of Jesus once again.
.
9. All things are lessons God would have you learn.
.
* Okay.
.
²He would not leave an unforgiving thought without correction, nor one thorn or nail to hurt His holy Son in any way.
.
* So just forgive Christ as a Whole and then be directed by the Holy Spirit. Why say it so convoluted? What I am saying is that these words make it sound as if we must search for every scrap of suffering and that is not so. It is the “idea” that Christ could think He could be separated from God that brought on each of the thorns that we have felt since time began.
.
³He would ensure his holy rest remain untroubled and serene, without a care, in an eternal home which cares for him.
.
* Would a loving parent do otherwise?
.
⁴And He would have all tears be wiped away, with none remaining yet unshed, and none but waiting their appointed time to fall.
.
* “…and none but waiting their appointed time to fall.” WHAT? Jesus talks in parables. Not in nonsense. God does not allow tears to fall for no reason.
.
⁵For God has willed that laughter should replace each one, and that His Son be free again.
.
* Is someone trying to say that God allows the tears of the Son so that laughter replaces them? Nonsense! This is stealing Bill’s signature sign of affection in people’s hearts and claiming it for Ken’s own. That is a sign of a narcissistic man and this would not be the only example of this in the history of the Course, so if this was not what Ken did here he did it in other ways.
.
* Power addiction is different than power hunger in my understanding. Power hunger picks a select person, task, organization, or theme even a theory, belief, and rules over it. Power addiction claims godhood over the entire world and ANYONE or ANYTHING that does not fit within their paradigm is simply made of no value and excluded. Their attributes will be claimed as the power-addicted person’s own; it is like identity theft. The rest of the person is excluded from their life. In the mind of the power-addicted, they are in the right.
.
* It can even bring death to the other if they are close to them because the person will give up their life before calling out the narcissist. I have watched it happen on more than one occasion. I claim that Kenneth Wapnick did this to Helen and Bill.
.
* Let me remind you that I am to see these things in great part because I have accepted the complete forgiveness that the Holy Spirit has offered me through the Atonement and I do not seek revenge or destruction of anyone in any way. Nor do I seek that with KW or his followers or the ones who misrepresented Jesus’ teachings throughout time, anciently or otherwise. I seek only clarity.
.
10. We will attempt today to overcome a thousand seeming obstacles to peace in just one day.
.
* This is truly doable if you understand what Jesus was teaching.
.
²Let mercy come to you more quickly.
.
* You have to be willing to believe it is possible. And it does require trust in God.
.
³Do not try to hold it off another day, another minute or another instant.
.
* Amen.
.
⁴Time was made for this.
.
* Time was NOT made for this!! Time was made as a means for the Son of God to torture Himself. God has allowed a way out of Time, NOW! Prepared from before time began.
.
⁵Use it today for what its purpose is.
.
* God did not create time for forgiveness. He only provided a way out of Time and it does not take ANY Time to exit it. It only takes a Willingness to receive God back into your life by forgiving yourself and knowing your value as a part of the Son of God.
.
⁶Morning 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.
.
* Like you would have the ability to understand what your deepest need is. That is not realistic.
.
11. Give all you can, and give a little more.
.
* Remember the idea that you need do nothing to be a child of God. This rings of asking the Son of God to give all His Very Essence away. There is no giving that need be done. There is only awareness that God IS and nothing could be real that is outside of God. I can feel the wrangling that must have gone on in Helen and Bill’s minds over this. I suspect it was not them that had issues it was not being able to identify the narcissist in their midst that caused the irritations for they had agreed to work together and there were improvements seen in the facility that they worked in because of it. And they did keep in touch daily even though they were far apart.
.
²For now we would arise in haste and go unto our Father’s house.
.
* There is no need to “arise in haste”. And we do not go to our “Father’s house”, GOD, HIMSELF takes the last step.
.
³We have been gone too long, and we would linger here no more.
.
* These kind of words echo of Biblical texts written by those who saw the benefit of using Jesus’ words to manipulate the masses.
.
⁴And as we practice, let us think about all things we saved to settle by ourselves, and kept apart from healing.
.
* A rather sly way to impose guilt and if you complain you “obviously” have not done the work correctly.
.
⁵Let us give them all to Him Who knows the way to look upon them so that they will disappear.
.
* You cannot take any singular part of the Mind of Christ and consider it a cleansing of the Christ as a Whole. He must be released by each part of His Mind as a WHOLE or the work is not relevant because any other part of the Mind (person, event, an act of nature, etc.) would throw it off, THIS is the DUALITY FACTOR that MUST be AVOIDED. We must forgive the Son as a Whole because that is how God sees Him and it is God whose release through Forgiveness must be for the Whole Sonship “or it is just an ego game.”
.
⁶Truth is His message; truth His teaching is.
.
* Whose message? This seems odd here.
.
⁷His are the lessons God would have us learn.
.
* Whose lessons? There are no lessons we are to learn at all. We are simply to release the belief in separation from God and recognize the little children that we are and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Perhaps forgiveness is being presented in this way.
.
12. 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.
.
* This makes me ill. Complete forgiveness of the Whole Son of God once and for ALL is the only forgiveness that has any credibility before God. True forgiveness was not revealed here except ever so sketchily.
.
²And try to give it application to the happenings the hour brought, so that the next one is free of the one before.
.
* This behavior or mind exercise puts you in charge and makes you the superhero over time by removing all that is occurring including your witness of a relationship with God. This took KW out of the world in a way that even being a silent monk never could and he knew it. It takes God out of the picture and makes Him irrelevant.
.
³The chains of time are easily unloosened in this way.
.
* It is untrue to suggest what must be done in ONE gesture must be attempted over and over again.
.
⁴Let 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.
.
* You do this once you enter the Atonement. This is not an exercise in non-existence it is a reuniting with God by acknowledging His Son. You simply erase your existence along with everyone else’s and God’s as well. No wonder the message of the Atonement has NOT been heard.
.
⁵Thus will you remain unbound, in peace eternal in the world of time.
.
* NO, removal of existence is not the manner by which one finds peace. It is through the knowledge that God IS. This I have found in the sphere of the flesh. But that does not put me without passions or incapable of making a mistake or “spilling the milk.”
.
13. 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.
.
* “…that lets you be another step IN GOD.” The salvation of the world is simply something that you recognize from your place within the Atonement. THAT makes THIS statement entirely false and MISLEADING. There are no steps to take. It is simply letting go of what placed the wall between the Son and the Truth of His Father’s Love.
.
²To all that speaks of terror, answer thus: ³I will forgive, and this will disappear.
.
* To all that speaks of terror, answer this: I know that God IS and nothing outside of God’s Will can affect His Son. IT IS NOT YOUR ABILITY TO FORGIVE THAT MAKES TERROR DISAPPEAR. It is the fact that GOD IS.
.
⁴To every apprehension, every care and every form of suffering, repeat these selfsame words.
.
* To all that speaks of terror, answer this: I know that God IS and nothing outside of God’s Will can affect His Son.
.
⁵And then 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.
.
* You will ALREADY be there and you will walk in it in all you say and do. Because God IS, not because you have done some grandiose thing! You do not raise anything to Heaven. You bear witness that Heaven is here because God IS.
.
⁶God will take this final step Himself.
.
* He will already have done so. There is no need to wait for God. He is HERE NOW.
.
⁷Do not deny the little steps He asks you take to Him.
.
* Do not delay your acceptance of the complete forgiveness of Christ within the Atonement and witness God’s Presence HERE and NOW.
.
Thank you for sharing this time with me and the Holy Spirit, till next time, God bless, ICN, amen.
