We Are Love as Love Created Us

We are trying today to undo your definition of God and replace it with His Own. We are also trying to emphasize that you are part of His definition of Himself.

…try to reach past all your images and preconceptions about yourself to the truth in you. If love created you like itself, this Self must be in you. And somewhere in your mind It is there for you to find.

You need to hear the truth about yourself as frequently as possible, because your mind is so preoccupied with false self-images. Four or five times an hour, and perhaps even more, it would be most beneficial to remind yourself that love created you like itself. Hear the truth about yourself in this.

Try to realize in the shorter practice periods that this is not your tiny, solitary voice that tells you this. This is the Voice for God, reminding you of your Father and of your Self. This is the Voice of truth, replacing everything that the ego tells you about yourself with the simple truth about the Son of God. You were created by love like itself. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 67, W-pI.67.2:8-9;3:1-3;5:2-6:4. See also ACIM Lesson 67 Insights.)

In the dream of separation, we are preoccupied with the body — feeding it, protecting it and giving it status. This preoccupation hides the reality that beyond appearances is the Self that Love created like Itself. We are all united in one Love, despite appearances in the world of separate bodies in time and space.

From the perspective of being a body, it is impossible to conceive of our oneness in Love. But God’s Voice is telling us that Love created us like Itself. Repeating this thought again and again and again helps loosen our mistaken obsession with being a separate body. It opens a crack in our hardened shell of defense to maintain the body as our identity.

As we open our minds to the thought of being Love and nothing else, we can be taught to recognize that we are still as Love created us. All that seemed to happen with bodies was no more than a dream and had no effect on our true Self. We are still Love as Love created us.
