LESSON 77. I am entitled to miracles.
W-77.1. You are entitled to miracles because of what you are. 2 You will receive miracles because of what God is. 3 And you will offer miracles because you are one with God. 4 Again, how simple is salvation! 5 It is merely a statement of your true Identity. 6 It is this that we will celebrate today.
W-77.2. Your claim to miracles does not lie in your illusions about yourself. 2 It does not depend on any magical powers you have ascribed to yourself, nor on any of the rituals you have devised. 3 It is inherent in the truth of what you are. 4 It is implicit in what God your Father is. 5 It was ensured in your creation, and guaranteed by the laws of God.
W-77.3. Today we will claim the miracles which are your right, since they belong to you. 2 You have been promised full release from the world you made. 3 You have been assured that the Kingdom of God is within you, and can never be lost. 4 We ask no more than what belongs to us in truth. 5 Today, however, we will also make sure that we will not content ourselves with less.
W-77.4. Begin the longer practice periods by telling yourself quite confidently that you are entitled to miracles. 2 Closing your eyes, remind yourself that you are asking only for what is rightfully yours. 3 Remind yourself also that miracles are never taken from one and given to another, and that in asking for your rights, you are upholding the rights of everyone. 4 Miracles do not obey the laws of this world. 5 They merely follow from the laws of God.
W-77.5. After this brief introductory phase, wait quietly for the assurance that your request is granted. 2 You have asked for the salvation of the world, and for your own. 3 You have requested that you be given the means by which this is accomplished. 4 You cannot fail to be assured in this. 5 You are but asking that the Will of God be done.
W-77.6. In doing this, you do not really ask for anything. 2 You state a fact that cannot be denied. 3 The Holy Spirit cannot but assure you that your request is granted. 4 The fact that you accepted must be so. 5 There is no room for doubt and uncertainty today. 6 We are asking a real question at last. 7 The answer is a simple statement of a simple fact. 8 You will receive the assurance that you seek.
W-77.7. Our shorter practice periods will be frequent, and will also be devoted to a reminder of a simple fact. 2 Tell yourself often today:
3 I am entitled to miracles.
4 Ask for them whenever a situation arises in which they are called for. 5 You will recognize these situations. 6 And since you are not relying on yourself to find the miracle, you are fully entitled to receive it whenever you ask.
W-77.8. Remember, too, not to be satisfied with less than the perfect answer. 2 Be quick to tell yourself, should you be tempted:
3 I will not trade miracles for grievances. 4 I want only what belongs to me. 5 God has established miracles as my right.
