I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.
(182) I will be still an instant and go home

Our home is in God, and not in our bodies or in our ego’s fears.

We release the past and the future, and live only in this moment, with healing and unity already accepted as so now. [continue reading…]

I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.
(181) I trust my brothers who are one with me

Let us look upon every brother recognizing the truth is being expressed, as God sees them, and let us look away from seeing their ego or masks.

Only as we see the light in our brothers can we then see the light of the truth in our own Selves.

We must practice looking past all expressions of mistaken beliefs. [continue reading…]

There is no peace except the peace of God.

Outer conditions can never give us peace.

Nothing in the world except for forgiveness can bring us God’s peace.

Thinking about finding peace or comfort in the future or anywhere outside of ourselves is a trap. [continue reading…]

I am not a body. I am free.

We are mind, we are the energetic vibration of our thoughts and feelings.

When we feel tired, sick, old, fat, or whatever, then we have become identified with our bodies.

Refuse to identify with the body because the body is a limitation. [continue reading…]

Only my condemnation injures me.

Condemning others hurts only us.

Forgiving others heals our own perception of them. [continue reading…]

It can be but my gratitude I earn.

We have all experienced emotional ups and downs, the uplifting energizers and the disappointments, of receiving and not receiving gratitude.

We often withdraw our approval from those whom we have not received thanks, approval, love, or forgiveness from. [continue reading…]

It can be but myself that I crucify.

This lesson can be the most difficult lesson of all to learn and accept.

In healing our brothers we heal ourselves; in attacking our brothers we attack ourselves.

In A Course in Miracles, we are teaching our minds the truth that is we are not a separated ego, living in chains. [continue reading…]

Love is the way I walk in gratitude.

Gratitude is what works to heal any situation without ever needing to change the situation itself.

Gratitude is a high frequency of energy, in alignment with light, love, laughter, and spirit.

Each time we express gratitude we raise our frequency to a higher state. [continue reading…]

I place the future in the hands of God.

Every moment that we give to God will make the next moment one that is free of sadness, pain, anxiety, and suffering.

Worry and fear are but a lack of trust in God’s power to take care of our future. We need no longer worry about our future survival.

When we are totally and wholly in the present moment, the Holy Instant, even grief does not exist. [continue reading…]

All things are lessons God would have me learn.

“All distress is unforgiveness.”

In order to see anything differently, all that is needed is our loving kindness, our forgiveness.

When we lack peace or are in pain, we are believing in a reality where what does not exist, illusions, are real.

When we are in pain, we have not yet learned the lessons God would have us learn. [continue reading…]

I have a function God would have me fill.

In heaven our function is to create by extending love.

Forgiveness is our one function on earth.

When we are unforgiving we are making real what does not exist.

Our mistaken beliefs and illusory, constricted perceptions can be undone with forgiveness.

Forgiveness can restore the peace that anger has stolen. [continue reading…]

I am the Holy Son of God Himself.

Today we will rise above the false self that we have been identified with.

It is time that we stop denying the truth.

Today we accept ourselves as spirit, the powerful presence of God that is our true nature.

We cannot lose or suffer, nor are we weak or helpless. [continue reading…]

I choose the joy of God instead of pain.

In the past, and still in the present, more often than not, we have chosen pain over peace, joy, and happiness.

When we are experiencing pain, it is a sign that we are believing or buying into illusions. [continue reading…]

I feel the love of God within me now.

We do not experience God’s love and light within us because we are blinded by the world, and contracted with our fears.

But feeling the love of God within, we will look at the world with new eyes that see only innocence, joy, and hope. [continue reading…]

The peace of God is shining in me now.

Recognize that the peace of God’s love and light are here now. If we are having trouble experiencing God’s qualities it is only because we have, at some level, accepted a different choice.

Ask to see it differently. [continue reading…]

I bless the world because I bless myself.

There is no loss, because giving something away can only increase what we have given.

Before we can give something away we must first have possession of it in our minds and hearts.

Giving is proof of having, for we cannot give what we don’t have, therefore, give with the joy of knowing we can only receive and never lose. [continue reading…]

Salvation of the world depends on me.

Today’s lesson asks us to put down our false humility, self-doubts, and arrogant ideas that believe we can in any way be unworthy.

All of these mistaken beliefs and more stand between us and our ability to listen to God’s voice whispering to each of us directing us to take actions for the salvation of the world. [continue reading…]

I want the peace of God.

Desire the peace of God with all your heart and it will be yours.

This lesson notes the difference between merely saying the words that we want the peace of God and really meaning these words in our hearts. [continue reading…]

The name of God is my inheritance.

When we name something, we are attempting to define the thing that we are labeling as separate from the whole.

That separation is not the truth, however. [continue reading…]

I call upon God’s name and on my own.

The practice for today’s lesson is a meditation on God’s name.

Just repeat His name to yourself, very slowly, over and over.

I have often done something similar using the word, “love.” It is a very powerful practice, and relaxing as well. [continue reading…]
