Teachers of God;
We're about through with the review. It's worth repeating too. ​We're doing lesson 79 & 80: Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved. & Let me recognize my problems have been solved. 
This presents a problem to me which I would have resolved. 
The miracle behind this grievance will resolve it for me. 
The answer to this problem is the miracle that it conceals.
I need not wait for this to be resolved.
The answer to this problem is already given me, if I will accept it. 
Time cannot separate this problem from its solution.

​We're going to be tackling the problem of our bodies and how they are to be used and understood. We're in the section about finding our tribe, our Mighty Companions, if you will. Did you know that your body is supposed to be one of these friends of yours. It's supposed to be a good one, but sometimes we don't act like or think our bodies are serving us. But they are. They are learning devices, you know. We learn through them, use them as tools of learning. They aren't the destination, they are just the vehicle. Are you friendly with your body?

Explanation of Images: We’ve learned some basic lessons. We have chosen a teacher. We’ve agreed to listen to our teacher too. We’ve stepped out of our old lives and have discovered others along the path with us. We need their help and they need ours. We have one more friend to make. Our bodies. Our bodies and the bodies of others are crucial learning devices for our journey. We must learn to pay attention to them and fully inhabit them. We need them to do what we require. We learn about self care and deep listening to our needs. We are in the habit of chasing pleasure. That’s the old way. Today we’re learning of ourselves as a part of the wholeness. That includes our bodies in a healthy environment. Bodies are growing and dying all around us. Sickness arises when we think we are bodies.
