Part 1 Undoing the Way We See Things Now
REVIEW VI – I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
- (184) The Name of God is my inheritance.
God’s Name reminds me that I am His Son, not slave to time, unbound by laws which rule the world of sick illusions, free in God, forever and forever one with Him.
I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
Personal Notes and Application: I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
This thought is a terrible fright to the ego. The ego is the body. It has and is nothing outside the body; the thought of not having a body is frightening to my ego and it is shrieking but what about this and what about that?
I am not a body and I am free of all the body’s demands. Ego – you can’t make the body attractive to me no matter what you do to make it so – I know what you do to the body in the end. I know. You devour it. It is your nature to do so – I cannot take it personal, but personal is what you would make it. You can have the body with all its unceasing demands for worship and sustenance and all its specialness. You cannot create a thing that would make it the more palatable to me because you are death and dying and disease. How dare you try to tempt me with food and music and lust for fame and wealth and adventure. There is nothing you could ever give me that would not result in destruction, loneliness, despair and fear and death only to do it over and over again until finally I would wake up to the Love of God who is calling to me, Who gave me His name, and Who calls for me to wake up and come home from this tempting nightmare.
You cannot hurt me, ego. With your dreams of worms and fears of blindness and parasites and rejection and poverty and disease and old age – you cannot hurt me, for I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me. The Name of God is my inheritance. In God is my identity and purpose.
I also want to thank God for the breakthrough for my brother from our study group. We talked at length today and through personal lessons which would otherwise be unbearable trials, a greater understanding of the special relationship and the holding no grievances was accomplished. Let us walk in truth and realize our identity in God.
