Today I will judge nothing that occurs.
I will be honest with myself today. I will not think that I already know what must remain beyond my present grasp. I will not think I understand the whole from bits of my perception, which are all that I can see. Today I recognize that this is so. And so I am relieved of judgments that I cannot make. Thus do I free myself and what I look upon, to be in peace as God created us.
Father, today I leave creation free to be itself. I honor all its parts, in which I am included. We are one because each part contains Your memory, and truth must shine in all of us as one.
~Jesus, A Course in Miracles L.243
I am the light of the world.
How holy am I, who have been given the function of lighting up the world! Let me be still before my holiness. In its calm light let all my conflicts disappear. In its peace let me remember Who I am.
~J, A Course in Miracles L81
I do not seek the things of time, and so I will not look upon them. What I seek today transcends all laws of time and things perceived in time. I would forget all things except Your Love. I would abide in You, and know no laws except Your law of love.
J, A Course in Miracles
When you’ve become willing to hide nothing, you will not only be willing to enter into communion but will also understand peace and joy.
~ J, A Course in Miracles
God, Your Will is mine, and only that. There is no other will for me to have. Let me not try to make another will, for it is senseless and will cause me pain. You Will alone can bring me happiness, and only Yours exists.
If I would have what only You can give, I must accept Your Will for me, and enter into peace where conflict is impossible, Your Child is one with You in being and in will, and nothing contradicts the holy truth that I remain as You created me.
~ Jesus, A Course in Miracles
What but Christ’s vision would I use today, when it can offer me a day in which I see a world so like to Heaven that an ancient memory returns to me?
Today I can forget the world I made.
Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace. Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God.
~ Jesus, A Course in Miracles L306

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.
~ Jesus, A Course in Miracles
Now your final instruction is here. You have found peace–live in peace. You have been given the Peace of God–go in Peace. Spread Peace throughout the land.
Go out in peace and love and service to all. For in this going out you come home and bring with you all the brothers and sisters you have brought to peace.
Go in peace to love and serve with all your heart. Thus are we one heart, one mind, one unity. Thus are we one in relationship of love and peace that is our eternal home.
Welcome home my brothers and sisters in Christ. Welcome home.
~ Christ, A Course of Love T1.10.15
The extremes that we are talking of leaving behind are extreme of reaction to a chosen lesson. What you are being asked to leave behind is the need for such lessons.
If you have learned the curriculum, what further lessons are needed? What quite knowing cannot come to you in peace?
Why would you believe you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in peace eternal?
~ Christ, A Course of Love T1.10.12
Are you being asked to give up extremes? Yes. You are being asked to give up all that would take peace from you.
But as you have been told before, you will be giving up nothing.
It will seem if it is so for a while perhaps. You will continue to be attracted to those living at the extremes and there is no reason not to take joy in observing another’s happiness or to feel compassion at another’s suffering. But you need not partake and you cannot partake if you are going to carry the Peace of God with you.
~ Jesus, A Course of Love T1.10.7
You used your free will to choose the human experience. Now are you willing to use it to choose the Peace of God instead?
Can you wholeheartedly choose peace? Can you choose peace long enough to become accustomed to joy without sorrow?
~ Jesus, A Course of Love T1.10.5
