Lesson 15 

Only if I keep reliving the past in the present am I a slave to time. By forgiving and letting go of the past, I free myself of the painful burdens I have carried into the present. Now, I can claim the opportunities for freedom in the present without my past distortions.

Today, freedom is my goal as I say: I choose to claim my release from past pain and suffering by living only in the immediate present.

Lesson 14

My preoccupation with the past and its projection into the future defeats my aim of present peace. Peace cannot be found in the past or future, but only now, in this instant. The past is over and the future is yet to be.

I am determined to live today without past/future fantasies by entering fully into this present instant, by reminding myself: This is the only time there really is.

Lesson 11

I was mistaken in believing that I could give anyone anything other than what I want for myself. Since I want to experience peace, love, and forgiveness, these are the only gifts I would offer others. It is not charity on my part to offer forgiveness and love to others in place of attack. Rather, offering love is the only way I can accept love for myself.

In all situations and encounters today, say: All that I give is given to myself. Am I now giving what I want for myself?

Lesson 8

I can be preoccupied with the fears of the past or the dreams of the future, but I can only live in the present moment. This moment is precious because it is different from all other moments. While the opportunity for my personal growth and fulfillment exists at all times, there has never been a better place than here.

Today, whenever I am tempted to live in the past or future, I will remind myself: I can live her and now with nothing to fear.

Lesson 7

The world transformed through my loving vision shows me there is nothing to fear. It is impossible for me to experience love and fear at the same time. It is also impossible for me to experience peace when I am fearful.

Today, I choose to experience only love by reminding myself: There is nothing to fear.

Lesson 6

Most of the time I see a fragmented world where nothing seems to make much sense. The bits and pieces of my daily experience reflect the chaos I see within. Today, I welcome a new perception of myself and the world.

Repeat to yourself whenever you feel that your peace is threatened by anything or anyone: I choose to see the unity of peace instead of the fragmentation of fear.

Lesson 5

The world I see through eyes of fear is indeed threatening. Yet, there is another way of looking at this same world. I can choose to look at familiar people and things as if I were seeing them for the first time. Without my fears from the past, I can experience the beauty, joy and contentment that lie all around me, and in all the people who are part of my life.

Repeat throughout the day whenever you experience fear: This is my instant of releasing you (name) and myself from a fearful world. Together, we can join in seeing a loving world.

Lesson 4

What I see without  is a reflection of what I have first seen within my own mind. I always project onto the world the thoughts, feelings and attitudes which preoccupy me. I can see the world differently today by changing my mind about what I want to see.

Repeat throughout the day whenever you are tempted to see yourself as victimized: Only my loving thoughts are real. It is only these I would have in this situation (specify) or with this person (specify).

Lesson 3

I recognize today that my attack thoughts about others are really directed against myself. When I believe that attacking others brings me something I want, let me remember that I always attack myself first. I do not wish to hurt myself again today.

Throughout the day when you are tempted to hurt yourself with attack thoughts, say with determination: I want to experience peace of mind right now. I happily let go of all attack thoughts and choose peace instead.

If I want peace, I will be concerned only about giving. If I want conflict, I will be concerned with trying to get something or evaluating why I am not getting it.

Ask yourself the following question about every communication: Is this communication loving to the other person and to myself? (Do this daily.)
