PART II.  SECTION 7.  What is the Holy Spirit?

Lesson 283 My True Identity Abides in You

  1. Father, I made an image of myself, and it is this I call the Son of God.  Yet is creation as it always was, for Your creation is unchangeable.  Let me not worship idols.  I am he my Father loves.  My holiness remains the light of Heaven and the Love of God.  Is not what is beloved of You secure?  Is not the light of Heaven infinite?  Is not Your Son my true Identity, when You created everything that is?
  2. Now are we one in shared Identity, with God our Father as our only Source, and everything created part of us.  And so we offer blessing to all things, uniting lovingly with all the world, which our forgiveness has made one with us.[1]

The image that we have made of ourselves and call a Son of God is but a parody of the unchangeable, holy Creation of God.  I will not worship it or bow down before it!  I will not find my identity in this body, nor its female parts that would tempt me to separate myself from my brothers.  I will not mistake the ego demands for survival, the time constraints, the vulnerability of the body, and the desire for wealth, worldly acclaim, and special relationships for my real Self.    

For I have everything I want; I am he whom God loves!  God made us one and whole – not male or female, not black or white, not Greek or Jew, not beast or human, not rich or poor, first world or third world, but One!

We are one creation with God our Father, our only Source.  When we forgive and are forgiven the perversion that we have made of God’s creation – we can genuinely offer blessing to all, for it is united in love and holy brotherhood.  In Jesus’ name, let us know our true Identity in You, Father.  Amen.
