All gifts my brothers give belong to me.
W-315.1. Each day a thousand treasures come to me with every passing moment. 2 I am blessed with gifts throughout the day, in value far beyond all things of which I can conceive. 3 A brother smiles upon another, and my heart is gladdened. 4 Someone speaks a word of gratitude or mercy, and my mind receives this gift and takes it as its own. 5 And everyone who finds the way to God becomes my savior, pointing out the way to me, and giving me his certainty that what he learned is surely mine as well.
W-315.2. I thank You, Father, for the many gifts that come to me today and every day from every Son of God. 2 My brothers are unlimited in all their gifts to me. 3 Now may I offer them my thankfulness, that gratitude to them may lead me on to my Creator and His memory.
I seek a future different from the past.
W-314.1. From new perception of the world there comes a future very different from the past. 2 The future now is recognized as but extension of the present. 3 Past mistakes can cast no shadows on it, so that fear has lost its idols and its images, and being formless, it has no effects. 4 Death will not claim the future now, for life is now its goal, and all the needed means are happily provided. 5 Who can grieve or suffer when the present has been freed, extending its security and peace into a quiet future filled with joy?
W-314.2. Father, we were mistaken in the past, and choose to use the present to be free. 2 Now do we leave the future in Your Hands, leaving behind our past mistakes, and sure that You will keep Your present promises, and guide the future in their holy light.
Now let a new perception come to me.
W-313.1. Father, there is a vision which beholds all things as sinless, so that fear has gone, and where it was is love invited in. 2 And love will come wherever it is asked. 3 This vision is Your gift. 4 The eyes of Christ look on a world forgiven. 5 In His sight are all its sins forgiven, for He sees no sin in anything He looks upon. 6 Now let His true perception come to me, that I may waken from the dream of sin and look within upon my sinlessness, which You have kept completely undefiled upon the altar to Your holy Son, the Self with which I would identify.
W-313.2. Let us today behold each other in the sight of Christ. 2 How beautiful we are! 3 How holy and how loving! 4 Brother, come and join with me today. 5 We save the world when we have joined. 6 For in our vision it becomes as holy as the light in us.
I see all things as I would have them be.
W-312.1. Perception follows judgment. 2 Having judged, we therefore see what we would look upon. 3 For sight can merely serve to offer us what we would have. 4 It is impossible to overlook what we would see, and fail to see what we have chosen to behold. 5 How surely, therefore, must the real world come to greet the holy sight of anyone who takes the Holy Spirit’s purpose as his goal for seeing. 6 And he cannot fail to look upon what Christ would have him see, and share Christ’s Love for what he looks upon.
W-312.2. I have no purpose for today except to look upon a liberated world, set free from all the judgments I have made. 2 Father, this is Your Will for me today, and therefore it must be my goal as well.
I judge all things as I would have them be.
W-311.1. Judgment was made to be a weapon used against the truth. 2 It separates what it is being used against, and sets it off as if it were a thing apart. 3 And then it makes of it what you would have it be. 4 It judges what it cannot understand, because it cannot see totality and therefore judges falsely. 5 Let us not use it today, but make a gift of it to Him Who has a different use for it. 6 He will relieve us of the agony of all the judgments we have made against ourselves, and re-establish peace of mind by giving us God’s Judgment of His Son.
W-311.2. Father, we wait with open mind today, to hear Your Judgment of the Son You love. 2 We do not know him, and we cannot judge. 3 And so we let Your Love decide what he whom You created as Your Son must be.
In fearlessness and love I spend today.
W-310.1. This day, my Father, would I spend with You, as You have chosen all my days should be. 2 And what I will experience is not of time at all. 3 The joy that comes to me is not of days nor hours, for it comes from Heaven to Your Son. 4 This day will be Your sweet reminder to remember You, Your gracious calling to Your holy Son, the sign Your grace has come to me, and that it is Your Will I be set free today.
W-310.2. We spend this day together, you and I. 2 And all the world joins with us in our song of thankfulness and joy to Him Who gave salvation to us, and Who set us free. 3 We are restored to peace and holiness. 4 There is no room in us for fear today, for we have welcomed love into our hearts.
I will not fear to look within today.
W-309.1. Within me is eternal innocence, because it is God’s Will that it be there forever and forever. 2 I, His Son, whose will is limitless as is His Own, can will no change in this. 3 For to deny my Father’s Will is to deny my own. 4 To look within is but to find my will as God created it, and as it is. 5 I fear to look within because I think I made another will that is not true, and made it real. 6 Yet it has no effects. 7 Within me is the Holiness of God. 8 Within me is the memory of Him.
W-309.2. The step I take today, my Father, is my sure release from idle dreams of sin. 2 Your altar stands serene and undefiled. 3 It is the holy altar to my Self, and there I find my true Identity.
