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.
- (192) I have a function God would have me fill.
I seek the function that would set me free from all the vain illusions of the world. Only the function God has given me can offer freedom. Only this I seek, and only this will I accept as mine.
I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.
Vain illusions of the world – the promises of happiness and meaning and gratification in a world where everything that has the least amount of pleasantness attached to it is both costly and fleeting. I would seek my function not in the illusion but in God. My joy and meaning does not come from the illusion of the world; my joy and meaning, my very function comes from God. I do not have to justify my existence with a job, a career, a profession. I do not have to impress anybody with my education, wealth, looks, or my material possessions. My function is the one that God would have me fill. God created me with Love, for Love, and in Love. This is the function that God would have me fill. Thank you, Heavenly Father.
