Part 1 Undoing the Way We See Things Now

LESSON 113 Morning and Evening Review

Lesson 95 and 96

  1. (95)  I am one Self, united with my Creator.  Serenity and perfect peace are mine, because I am one Self, completely whole, at one with all creation and with God. 
  2.  (96) Salvation comes from my one Self.  From my one Self, Whose knowledge still remains within my mind, I see God’s perfect plan for my salvation perfectly fulfilled.
  3. On the hour:  I am one Self, united with my Creator. On the half hour:   Salvation comes from my one Self. [1]

Notes and Personal Application:  Last year when I was going through the Course lessons for the first time, it was the meditation from this lesson review that seemed to open my consciousness and understanding about our Oneness with God.  Jesus knew that there was no separating us from God. Jesus accepted His function as God’s Son and calls for us to do the same. He taught us that the Kingdom of God is within us – where nobody ever thinks to look – for all that would save them. Serenity and perfect peace are ours, Jesus tells us, when we recognize our completeness in God, our oneness in Him.  We do not become nothing, we become everything! 

Salvation comes from this Oneness.  The split and separated mind is no more.  We are not half ego and half spirit.  We are all spirit, we are all Mind, as our Course calls it.  We have the Mind of God and can no longer be deceived by that which is not love.  Lesson 96 teaches us that the knowledge of this holy Self is implanted into our minds.  There is nothing that can take it away.  Perhaps we have lost recognition of it. Perhaps the concerns and cares of the world hides it from our awareness, but it still remains.  The plan of salvation is perfectly fulfilled when we see ourselves as One with God and with all of creation. When we see ourselves as One we know that we cannot receive without giving or give without receiving.  We know that as we do unto others, it is done to ourselves, because we are One. Creation then is saved from the devices of the ego which would tear, and devour, and destroy. We study war no more!  We have no interest in lies and deceit and destruction.  Salvation has come to the world.  That which is unholy is no more.  Even the wild animals, lifted from the curse of split natures, are so harmless that our little ones can go out and play amongst them.[2]

Repeat these ideas today as often as you can and ask the Lord to make their meaning known to you. “I am one Self, united with my Creator.  Salvation comes from my one Self.”
