Lesson 151

“All things are echoes of the Voice of God.”

No-one can judge on partial evidence. That is not judgement. It is
merely an opinion based on ignorance and doubt. Its seeming certainty
is but a cloak for the uncertainty it would conceal.It needs irrational
defense because it is irrational.And its defense seems strong, convincing,
and without a doubt, because of all the doubting underneath.

You do not seem to doubt the world you see.You do not really
question what is shown you through the body’s eyes. Nor do you ask
why you believe it, even though you learned a long while since your
senses do deceive.That you believe them to the last detail which they
report is even stranger when you pause to recollect how frequently
they have been faulty witnesses indeed! Why would you trust them
so implicitly? Why but because of underlying doubt which you
would hide with show of certainty?

How can you judge? Your judgement rests upon the witness that
your senses offer you.Yet witness never falser was than this. But how
else do you judge the world you see? You place pathetic faith in what
your eyes and ears report.You think your fingers touch reality and
close upon the truth. This is awareness which you understand, and
think more real than what is witnessed to by the eternal Voice of
God Himself.

Can this be judgement? You have often been urged to refrain
from judging, not because it is a right to be withheld from you.You
cannot judge. You merely can believe the ego’s judgements, all of
which are false. It guides your senses carefully, to prove how weak
you are; how helpless and afraid, how apprehensive of just
punishment, how black with sin, how wretched in your guilt.

This thing it speaks of and would yet defend it tells you is
yourself. And you believe that this is so with stubborn certainty.Yet
underneath remains the hidden doubt that what it shows you as
reality with such conviction it does not believe. It is itself alone that
it condemns. It is within itself it sees the guilt. It is its own despair it
sees in you.

Hear not its voice.The witnesses it sends to prove to you its evil
is your own are false, and speak with certainty of what they do not
know.Your faith in them is blind because you would not share the
doubts their lord can not completely vanquish.You believe to doubt
his vassals is to doubt yourself. Yet you must learn to doubt their
evidence will clear the way to recognize yourself, and let the Voice of
God alone be Judge of what is worthy of your own belief.

He will not tell you that your brother should be judged by what
your eyes behold in him, nor what his body’s mouth says to your
ears, nor what your fingers’ touch reports of him. He passes by such
idle witnesses, which merely bear false witness to God’s Son. He
recognizes only what God loves, and in the holy light of what He
sees do all the ego’s dreams of what you are vanish before the
splendor He beholds.

Let Him be Judge of what you are, for He has certainty in
which there is no doubt, because it rests on Certainty so great that
doubt is meaningless before Its face. Christ cannot doubt Himself.
The Voice of God can only honor Him, rejoicing in His perfect,
everlasting sinlessness.Whom He has judged can only laugh at guilt,
unwilling now to play with toys of sin; unheeding of the body’s
witnesses before the rapture of His holy face.

And thus He judges you. Accept His word of what you are, for
He bears witness to your beautiful creation, and the Mind Whose
Thought created your reality.What can the body mean to Him Who
knows the glory of the Father and the Son? What whispers of the
ego can He hear? What could convince Him that your sins are real?

Let Him be Judge as well of everything that seems to happen to
you in this world. His lessons will enable you to bridge the gap
between illusions and the truth. He will remove all faith that you have
placed in pain, disaster, suffering and loss. He gives you vision which
can look beyond these grim appearances, and can behold the gentle
Face of Christ in all of them.You will no longer doubt that only good
can come to you who are beloved of God, for He will judge all
happenings and teach the single lesson which they all contain.

He will select the elements in them which represent the truth,
and disregard those aspects which reflect but idle dreams. And He
will reinterpret all you see, and all occurrences, each circumstance,
and every happening which seems to touch on you in any way from
His one frame of reference, wholly unified and sure.And you will see
the love beyond the hate, the constancy in change, the pure in sin,
and only Heaven’s blessing on the world.

Such is your resurrection, for your life is not a part of anything
you see. It stands beyond the body and the world, past every witness
for unholiness, within the Holy, holy as Itself. In everyone and
everything His Voice would speak to you of nothing but your Self
and your Creator, Who is One with Him. So will you see the holy
Face of Christ in everything, and hear in everything no sound except
the echo of God’s Voice.

We practice wordlessly today except at the beginning of the
time you spend with God. We introduce these times with but a
single, slow repeating of the thought with which the day begins.And
then we watch our thoughts, appealing silently to Him Who sees the
elements of truth in them. Let Him evaluate each thought that
comes to mind, remove the elements of dreams, and give them back
to you as clean ideas that do not contradict the Will of God.

Give Him your thoughts, and He will give them back as
miracles which joyously proclaim the wholeness and the happiness
God wills His Son as proof of His eternal Love. And as each thought
is thus transformed, it takes on healing power from the Mind Which
saw the truth in it, and failed to be deceived by what was falsely
added.All the threads of fantasy are gone, and what remains is unified
into a perfect Thought that offers Its perfection everywhere.

Spend fifteen minutes thus when you awake, and gladly give
another fifteen more before you go to sleep.Your ministry begins as all
your thoughts are purified. So are you taught to teach the Son of God
the holy lesson of his sanctity. No-one can fail to listen, when you hear
the Voice of God give honor to God’s Son.And everyone will share the
thoughts with you which He has retranslated in your mind.

Such is your Eastertide. And so you lay the gift of snow-white
lilies on the world, replacing witnesses to sin and death. Through
your transfiguration is the world redeemed and joyfully released from
guilt. Now do we lift our resurrected minds in gladness and in
gratitude to Him Who has restored our sanity to us.

And we will hourly remember Him Who is salvation and
deliverance. As we give thanks the world unites with us and happily
accepts our holy thoughts which Heaven has corrected and made
pure. 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.
