​Teachers of God,

Lesson for August 3rd, 2016

Lesson 216

 

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

 

 

(196) It can be but myself I crucify.

All that I do I do unto myself. If I attack, I suffer. 

But if I forgive, salvation will be given me.

I am not a body. I am free. 

For I am still as God created me.

​We're passing the dream in Chapter 18. We've got a few lessons to learn. Mostly about self knowledge and believing in ourselves, but there is one that is mostly overlooked in similar teachings. We have a body, but we are not bodies. We look within and find a source of wholeness and power. We find that we're not alone. But we're inhabiting this body, the course calls it a learning device. So we're going to be interacting with ourselves and others through these bodies. We learn to be kind and good to them and listen when they're in pain. And we don't correct or berate others because they still identify as a specific body. That's the hard part. Learning to act as one without requiring anyone else to do it.​ We don't have to change anything, we have to take our bodies through our lives so we can help others.

Explanation of Images: When we look within we find wholeness. We find a whole and complete singularity. That self knowledge is reflected in our world too. We see the world, our existence, and all that can be observed and understood as one reality. We find ourselves with the use of a learning device, our bodies, that will take us along through and interact with this Unity. We fully occupy our vehicles for the journey ahead. We start to identify as the wholeness, not it’s reflection. When we reduce our lives to a physical object we imprison it, and limit its expression. Our bodies are here to help us and serve us to do what is ours to do. We need to listen and respect it, like a cowboy and his horse. Like the mind and body. We have tapped the source and draw endless power and energy from the wholeness and oneness we find expressed in our own selves.
