PART II.  SECTION 5:  WHAT IS THE BODY?

Lesson 266 My Holy Self Abides In You, God’s Son.

  1. Father, You gave me all Your Sons, to be my saviors and my counselors in sight; the bearers of Your holy Voice to me.  In them, are You reflected, and in them does Christ look back upon me from my Self.  Let not Your Son forget Your holy Name.  Let not Your Son forget his holy Source.  Let not Your Son forget his name is Yours.
  2. This day we enter into Paradise, calling upon God’s Name and on our own, acknowledging our Self in each of us; united in the holy Love of God.  How many saviors God has given us!  How can we lose the way to Him, when He has filled the world with those who point to Him and given us the sight to look on them?[1]

Dear Heavenly Father, You provided all these people that I see with my eyes to be my saviors and counselors; they speak Your holy words to me.  You are reflected in my brothers; Christ looks back upon me through my brothers because we are one.  Let me always remember Your holy Name.  Let me always remember that I abide in Your Son and You are my holy Source.  Let me still remember that my name is Yours.

In today’s lesson, Jesus reminds us that God created us in His image, and He created us to be His Son.  When we imagined removing ourselves from God, we became bodies – detached, governed by a rogue ego, caught up in an insane nightmare, a delusional world of fear and time.  And yet today – we enter into Paradise, by merely calling on God’s Name which is our own, acknowledging that we are not separate selves, but one Self, united in God’s holy Love.  Let all these seemingly different, ill-mannered, frightened selves teach us what love and unity is not!  When we choose to see our brothers only through the eyes of Christ, their antics become object lessons, inadvertently pointing to the right path that leads us Home.  They cannot hurt, disappoint, weary, or disturb us – no matter their seeming ill-intention.  For we abide in You, God’s Son.
