Accepting Love as Our Identity

Here [in the body] does [the ego] hide, and here it can be seen as what it is. Declare your innocence and you are free. The body disappears, because you have no need of it except the need the Holy Spirit sees. For this, the body will appear as useful form for what the mind must do. It thus becomes a vehicle which helps forgiveness be extended to the all-inclusive goal that it must reach, according to God’s plan.

Be free today. And carry freedom as your gift to those who still believe they are enslaved within a body. Be you free, so that the Holy Spirit can make use of your escape from bondage, to set free the many who perceive themselves as bound and helpless and afraid. Let love replace their fears through you. Accept salvation now, and give your mind to Him Who calls to you to make this gift to Him. For He would give you perfect freedom, perfect joy, and hope that finds its full accomplishment in God.

And God Himself extends His Love and happiness each time you say:

I am not a body. I am free.
I hear the Voice that God has given me,
and it is only this my mind obeys.
(A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 199, W-pI.199.4;7;8:6-9A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 199, )

Atonement is reached when forgiveness is complete with no exceptions. This is the purpose of all the lessons our inner Teacher brings to us. The Light the Holy Spirit brings into our mind reveals the perfect innocence in everyone, for nothing has occurred to change God’s Creation.

As we accept the idea that we are not a body, we step back from belief in the ego thought system of separation. We free ourselves from belief in separation which limits us to a separate identity, disconnected from the world.

As we let the Holy Spirit be our Guide in all things, the body becomes an instrument for teaching that only innocence is true. Only Love is real. There is nothing else. Free of identification with the image of a body, we are free to experience the joy of our unity in Love.

Today we remind ourselves that we are free to accept Love as our Identity.
