Review: “I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.”
“I bless the world because I bless myself.”
The words that stand out to me in this lesson are, “accept God’s boundless Love for me.” This world is an attempt to limit God’s Love. Bodies were made to separate off parts of God into isolated individual segments which do not share all of God’s Love. The separate identities we call bodies cannot know boundless Love because the bodies themselves are boundaries.
To be boundless is to be united with all. It is to be one. Identifying with the body automatically brings with it a belief in being unworthy of all God’s boundless Love. As I am able to accept more of God’s boundless Love, I bless the world because I bless myself. It is not God Who limits Love. It is simply my mistaken belief in an image of myself that could never be true or real.
The Course is teaching me how to forgive myself for having made up this image and let it go. As I let go of the false image, I open my heart to recognize the Presence of God that never left. God is truly in everything I see. God’s Presence has nothing to do with form. God is in everything I see because God is boundless and is therefore everywhere. To experience this, I must let go of all meanings I have given forms. These meanings interfere with Christ’s vision, which sees God’s Love everywhere.
Holy Spirit, help me bless myself today by helping me let go of the false meanings and images I have made in this world so I may see the Light of God where it is, which is everywhere. Thus I will bless the world because I bless myself.
God (Love) abides in my heart. Love abides in everyone’s heart. This is what is real. For me to recognize this is to bless myself and my brother. I need but turn to Love and I will see this is true.
As I turn to Love, the false concepts of bodies and differences fall away. As I turn to Love, my belief in weakness and separation from God falls away. As I turn to Love, I see my innate strength. I feel God’s Love. Because God’s Love is continuous, it is everywhere. The false images disappear in the ever expanding extension of God’s Love. Opening to this truth is blessing the world and blessing myself.
