Lesson 14

God did not create a meaningless world.

The idea for today is, of course, the reason why a meaningless world is impossible. What God did not create does not exist. And everything that does exist exists as He created it. The world you see has nothing to do with reality. It is of your own making, and it does not exist.

The exercises for today are to be practiced with eyes closed throughout. The mind-searching period should be short, a minute at most. Do not have more than three practice periods with today's idea unless you find them comfortable. If you do, it will be because you really understand what they are for.

The idea for today is another step in learning to let go the thoughts that you have written on the world, and see the Word of God in their place. The early steps in this exchange, which can truly be called salvation, can be quite difficult and even quite painful. Some of them will lead you directly into fear. You will not be left there. You will go far beyond it. Our direction is toward perfect safety and perfect peace.

With eyes closed, think of all the horrors in the world that cross your mind. Name each one as it occurs to you, and then deny its reality. God did not create it, and so it is not real. Say, for example:

God did not create that war, and so it is not real.
God did not create that airplane crash, and so it is not real.
God did not create that disaster [specify], and so it is not real.

Suitable subjects for the application of today's idea also include anything you are afraid might happen to you, or to anyone about whom you are concerned. In each case, name the "disaster" quite specifically. Do not use general terms. For example, do not say, "God did not create illness," but, "God did not create cancer," or heart attacks, or whatever may arouse fear in you.

This is your personal repertory of horrors at which you are looking. These things are part of the world you see. Some of them are shared illusions, and others are part of your personal hell. It does not matter. What God did not create can only be in your own mind apart from His. Therefore, it has no meaning. In recognition of this fact, conclude the practice periods by repeating today's idea:

God did not create a meaningless world.

The idea for today can, of course, be applied to anything that disturbs you during the day, aside from the practice periods. Be very specific in applying it. Say:

God did not create a meaningless world. He did not create [specify the situation which is disturbing you], and so it is not real.

Britney Added: God does not see the wars and ravage horrors in the world, the mind of fear does. He does not see the painful games that are played here, as they are NOT His reality. God knows us only as innocent souls, whom at any time, can call upon God and receive the answer to their prayers and rest in perfect safety and perfect peace.

Today's Course lesson is here to remind us that what we think a part from God does NOT exist. We are here today to take a look into our mind to see what we have held there to block the truth and Love of our Father from dawning on our minds. As we release the beliefs of the past from the mind, in will release from our outer experience. This is how we can change our minds about the world and watch the world change.

Any fear that is present, or any horror we see in the world of any kind can be used in today's lesson. We can search our mind for all that engenders fear and apply the thought of today to each fear that arises directly.

The idea for today is another step in learning to let go the thoughts which you have written on the world, and see the Word of God in their place.

The lesson today is very specific, so I would recommend referencing the text for your practice period, as well through out your day if anything disturbs your peace at all.

Love and Peace to all!!
