Workbook Topics Discussed:

[71] "Only God's plan for salvation will work."

It is senseless for me to search wildly about for salvation. I have seen it in many people and in many things, but when I reached for it, it was not there. I was mistaken about where it is. I was mistaken about what it is. I will undertake no more idle seeking. Only God's plan for salvation will work. And I will rejoice because His plan can never fail.
These are some suggested forms for applying this idea specifically:

"God's plan for salvation will save me from my perception of this."
"This is no exception in God's plan for my salvation."
"Let me perceive this only in the light of God's plan for salvation."


[72] "Holding grievances is an attack on God's plan for salvation."

Holding grievances is an attempt to prove that God's plan for salvation will not work. Yet only His plan will work. By holding grievances, I am therefore excluding my only hope of salvation from my awareness. I would no longer defeat my own best interests in this insane way. I would accept God's plan for salvation, and be happy.
Specific applications for this idea might be in these forms:

"I am choosing between misperception and salvation as I look on this."
"If I see grounds for grievances in this, I will not see the grounds for
my salvation."
"This calls for salvation, not attack."


[73] "I will there be light."

I will use the power of my will today. It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal. Light shall be my guide today. I will follow it where it leads me, and I will look only on what it shows me. This day I will experience the peace of true perception.
These forms of this idea would be helpful for specific application:

"This cannot hide the light I will to see."
"You stand with me in light, [name]."
"In the light this will look different."


[74] "There is no will but God's."

I am safe today because there is no will but God's. I can become afraid only when I believe that there is another will. I try to attack only when I am afraid, and only when I try to attack can I believe that my eternal safety is threatened. Today I will recognize that all this has not occurred. I am safe because there is no will but God's.
These are some useful forms of this idea for specific applications:

"Let me perceive this in accordance with the Will of God."
"It is God's Will you are His Son, [name], and mine as well."
"This is part of God's Will for me, however I may see it."


[75] "The light has come."

In choosing salvation rather than attack, I merely choose to recognize what is already here. Salvation is a decision made already. Attack and grievances are not there to choose. That is why I always choose between truth and illusion; between what is there and what is not. The light has come. I can but choose the light, for it has no alternative. It has replaced the darkness, and the dark has gone.
These would prove useful forms for specific applications of this idea:

"This cannot show me darkness, for the light has come."
"The light in you is all that I would see, [name]."
"I would see in this only what is there."


[76] "I am under no laws but God's."

Here is the perfect statement of my freedom. I am under no laws but God's. I am constantly tempted to make up other laws and give them power over me. I suffer only because of my belief in them. They have no real effect on me at all. I am perfectly free of the effects of all laws save God's. And His are the laws of freedom.
For specific forms in applying this idea, these would be useful:

"My perception of this shows me I believe in laws which do not exist."
"I see only the laws of God at work in this."
"Let me allow God's laws to work in this, and not my own."


[77] "I am entitled to miracles."

I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God's. His laws release me from all grievances, and replace them with miracles. And I would accept the miracles in place of the grievances, which are but illusions that hide the miracles beyond. Now I would accept only what the laws of God entitle me to have, that I may use it on behalf of the function He has given me.
You might use these suggestions for specific applications of this idea:

"Behind this is a miracle to which I am entitled."
"Let me not hold a grievance against you [name],
but offer you the miracle that belongs to you instead."
"Seen truly, this offers me a miracle."


[78] "Let miracles replace all grievances."

By this idea do I unite my will with the Holy Spirit's, and perceive them as one. By this idea do I accept my release from hell. By this idea do I express my willingness to have all my illusions be replaced with truth, according to God's plan for my salvation. I would make no exceptions and no substitutes. I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have.
Useful specific forms for applying this idea would be:

"I would not hold this grievance apart from my salvation."
"Let our grievances be replaced by miracles, [name]."
"Beyond this is the miracle by which all my grievances are replaced."
