We are thus in search of another country; but, we must admit, between the one we leave behind and the one we have not yet reached, there is a rather uncomfortable no-man's-land. It is a period of trial, whose length depends upon our own determination; but, as we know, from time immemorial, from the Eastern, Egyptian, or Orphic initiations to the quest for the Holy Grail, the story of man's ascent has always been attended by trials. 

In the past they were mainly romantic. What was so earthshaking, after all, about getting oneself sealed in a sarcophagus while the fifes were playing, or celebrating one's own funeral rites around a pyre? Today the sarcophagi have become public, and some human lives are a kind of burial. It is therefore worthwhile to make some effort to get out. When we take a good look around, we see we haven't much to lose by making that effort.

The main difficulty of this transition is the inner void. After living in a condition of mental effervescence, we suddenly feel like a convalescent, rather lost, with strange echoes in our head, as if this world were horribly noisy and tiring. We become extremely sensitive, with an impression of bumping into everything, into gray or aggressive people, heavy objects, brutal events; the world appears enormously absurd.

What a mistake to dream of God far off in the skies when the spirit of the Universal Father lives within your own mind!

Conflict will always exist as long as the idea is more important than the fact.

Truth can be discovered by anyone, without the help of any authority and, as life is ever present, in an instant

Rejoice in the power of forgiveness to heal your sight completely.  

Be confident that on this day there is a new beginning.  Without the darkness of the past upon your eyes, you cannot fail to see today.  

And what you see will be so welcome that you will gladly extend today forever.
Say, then: The light has come.  I have forgiven the world.

Circle of Light

So should it be with the dark clouds of guilt, no more
impenetrable and no more substantial. 

You will not bruise yourself against them in traveling through. 

Let your Guide teach you their unsubstantial nature as He leads you past
them, for beneath them is a world of light whereon they
cast no shadows. 

Their shadows lie upon the world beyond them, still further from the light.

 Yet from them to the light their shadows cannot fall

Miracles fall like drops of healing rain from Heaven on a dry and dusty world, where starved and thirsty creatures come to die. 

Now they have water. 

Now the world is green. 

And everywhere the signs of life spring up, to show that what is born can never
die, for what has life has immortality.

Brother, take not one step in the descent to hell. 

For having taken one, you will not recognize the rest for what they are. 

And they will follow. 

Attack in any form has placed your foot upon the twisted stairway that leads from Heaven. 

Yet any instant it is possible to have all this undone. 

How can you know whether you chose the stairs to Heaven or the way to hell? 

Quite easily. How do you feel? Is peace in your awareness?

Are you certain which way you go? And are you sure the goal of Heaven can be

If not, you walk alone. 

Ask, then, your Friend to join with you, and give you certainty of where you go.
