Part 1  Undoing the Way We See Things Now


I am not a body.  I am free. For I am still as God created me.

Lesson 211

  1. (191)  I am the holy Son of God Himself.

In silence and in true humility, I seek God’s glory, to behold it in the Son whom He created as my Self.

I am not a body.  I am free.  For I am still as God created me. 

When I deny my identity as a Son of God, I have accepted that this is my world:  Chaos, frailty, dis-ease, decay, evil, sin, hopelessness, death and nothingness.  It can be disguised for only so long before this world shows its emptiness and despair.  I am as God created me – an everlasting spirit, a Son of God, sinless, immortal.  This thought lifts me above the world and all the worldly thoughts that would hold me prisoner.  And it is from this place of safety and escape, that I will return and be set free.  For when I accept my own true Identity, verse five states, then I am truly saved and am in a position to save others, for I have no more need to use my powers cruelly.  This is the way hell is undone!  In verse 7, this lesson tells us to remind ourselves with these words:

I am the holy Son of God Himself.  I cannot suffer, cannot be in pain, I cannot suffer loss, nor fail to do all that salvation asks. 

Verse nine goes on – I can no longer see myself as weak or frail with futile hopes and devastated dreams, born to die, to weep and suffer pain, because all power is given me in heaven and in earth. 

I reel with the magnitude of it – the audacity.  Could it possibly be true?  How could the Holy Son of God Himself be encased in this mortal body?  In me?  Be me?

And yet.  Heart beating like a drum, I know it is true.  I am a holy Son of God – I am not a body.  I am free.  I am still as God created me.
