Review: “I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.”
“I feel the Love of God within me now.”
I feel the Love of God when I recognize that the Love of God is everywhere and is eternal. The Love of God is all That is. Receiving and giving the Love of God is all that can be truly received and given. Inherent in accepting the Love of God is giving the Love of God. Inherent in accepting and giving the Love of God is feeling the Love of God.
There is only one Love and this Love is universal. It is continuous. It is always present. It is all that is real. We all are mind that lives in the eternal and ever-present Love of God. Experiencing the Love of God is what is natural. In fact it is the only natural thing in the world. It is the only reality. Anything outside of God’s Love is illusion.
Accepting and giving the Love of God is really all we ever could do because It is all we ever Are. It is our life. It is our totality. It is our very beingness. It is our one Self. Am I willing to accept and give my one Self today? Today is for practice in accepting and giving the Love of God. Nothing else is more important because nothing else is real.
When I identify with being a body in a world of separate bodies and forms, I am identifying with the ego’s attempt to limit Love. The ego is the idea of rejecting the equality, the all inclusiveness and limitlessness of God’s Love. This is why it is important to proclaim again and again until I fully believe that I am not a body. I am free. I am still as God created me.
Love cannot be limited and be Itself. Thus I cannot feel the Love of God within me as long as I believe in a limited image of myself. Because God’s Love is limitless, it is His Love within me that sets me free.
Love is forever extending. To know my freedom in God’s Love I must extend His Love, equally and unequivocally. That is the only way Love can be extended. It is the only way I can know God’s Love, feel It and know my Self.
The body is not what I am. I do not have to accept the ego’s purpose of limitation for the body. As I dis-identify with the body as what I am, I am free to give it a different purpose. As I strengthen my identification with the Love of God as What I am, the body’s purpose now becomes to be the means by which I extend His Love to all my brothers.
The body then becomes His Voice, His hands, His feet to carry and express His Love to all who believe they are limited by a body. As I use the body to teach Love, I learn that I am Love. The Love of God within me sets me free. I remember I am still as God created me.
