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.

Lesson 209

  1. (189)  I feel the love of God within me now.

The Love of God is what created me.  The Love of God is everything I am.  The Love of God proclaimed me as His Son.  The Love of God within me sets me free.

I am not a body.  I am free.  For I am still as God created me.[1]

Notes and Personal Application:  We quiet our minds and sweep clear our inner altar this morning of all the calls and causes of the world.  We bring our stillness and our trust to God.  We are not bodies separated by our flesh and time and space.  For these blessed moments we focus upon our freedom from all that the world does to keep us apart from it.  We remember that we are still as God created us – One with Him and with all of Creation.  This is a blessed meditation – one that as we experience it and let it shine from us – will save the world.  Morning and evening we spend at least 15 minutes with this practice, devoting our time and our thoughts to God, with whom we are one.  We will not answer the calls of the world during these times because we know that this is the most important things we can be doing at this time.  We will put our trust and our belief in God and His Will and no longer allow the world to tempt us that we are doomed!

The review for our day tells us that we feel the love of God within us now.  This is what we are made of – the Love of God.  It is who and what we are in our eternal beings.  We are His Son.  It is His Love that unshackles us from our identity with time and all that it seems to hold – the world, our bodies, the special relationships which would take the place of our Sonship with God, our Brotherhood with Christ.  We can let it all go with no sorrow, no pain, no sense of loss or sacrifice – we exchange that which is nothing for God’s Love which is Everything. 

This is not only a blessed meditation; it is a powerful one!  Today pray this prayer with me.  As we pool our minds to experience God’s Love, now, we are joined from all parts of the world and made one in Christ.  We may never meet in the flesh, but we are one in God’s Love, one in the spirit of Sonship and Brotherhood. 

Dear Father: We feel Your love within us now.  As we draw close, shutting off the clamor of the world and all of its calls to involve ourselves in its repetitive and tiresome pleasures, pranks, plagues, and pitfalls, we come to understand that we are made of Your Love, for Your Love, and by Your Love.  Let us quietly and wordlessly share Your Love with those who come to mind, forgiving them their small humanity, blessing their marvelous reality in You, reflecting the Love we feel within us now, so that we may all be free.  In the name of Jesus, with Whom we are one.  Amen.
