Review: “I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.”
“I call upon God’s Name and on my own.”
“I call upon God’s Name and on my own” is another way of reminding me I am not a body. If my name is the same as God’s Name, then I must share the same characteristics as God. God is not a body so I must not be a body. God is innocent and wholly loving, so I must be innocent and wholly loving.
To call upon God’s Name is to remind me of my Source and What I am. God has no fear, so fear must be alien to me as well. God does not condemn and so I must not condemn. Any image I believe about myself that is different from this is a false image that limits me and blinds me to the truth about myself.
To call upon God’s Name is to open my mind to receive the truth of What I am. This is what I truly desire at the core of my being. I truly want to remember What I am. This Self God created is where I find comfort and peace. It is the part of me that remembers God’s Name is my own, along with all my brothers. It is the part of me that sees only unity and therefore is perfectly safe always.
Holy Spirit, help me see with the vision of my Self. Help me see the loving innocence of my brother so I may recognize it in myself. Today I would receive Your meaning for everything I look upon. Help me be the Love I was created to be and see It everywhere. Help me answer every call for Love with Love and thereby teach myself that only Love is real.
God is universal. God is the truth of all that is real. When I forget God, I am forgetting my Source, my true Identity. When I forget my Source, I am dreaming a dream of being separate from What I truly am. The way out of this is to return to letting God back into my awareness. The way out of this is to be willing to wake up from the dream of separation.
Anything other than God is a dream. That is why remembering God is my deliverance. “I call upon God’s Name and on my own” helps me remember the truth. There is nothing other than God. That truth is my safety and my joy. Remembering this truth is my salvation.
I would remind myself of the truth frequently today. I would let my mind be healed of belief that anything other than God is real. This is how I rest in God today. This is how I wake up from the dream.
