Lesson 211 – I am the Holy Son of God Himself

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.

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.  https://youtu.be/Y8yr5vEO7h0

Coming up on sixty, my love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
