Why does Jesus tell us that we are not within a body?

Jesus answers this very specifically in the introduction to Chapter 25: “The Christ in you inhabits not a body. Yet He is in you. and thus it must be that you are not within a body. What is within you cannot be outside. And it is certain that you cannot be apart from what is at the very center of your life. What gives you life cannot be housed in death. No more can you.” (Intro.1:1-7)

Here we see that the one Christ Mind lies within each of us. The united Mind of Christ is at the center of our real Life, the Life we live in God. Our real Life has nothing to do with the body or separate identity in our dream of separation. Because we are one with God, we were not ‘born’ as a separate body and we do not ‘die’ when the body dies in the dream. We are all united as eternal Spirit in God’s oneness.

What is our mission the Christ sets forth for us with every brother?

As we are willing to let go of our false belief in separate bodies, the Christ in our mind brings healing to every mind: “To those who know Him not it carries Him in gentleness and love, to heal their minds. Such is the mission that your brother has for you. And such it must be that your mission is for him.” (Intro.3:6-8)

As we are willing to see past the body and separate identity to the Christ in every brother, we are fulfilling the mission Christ sets forth in our real Mind. As we are willing to look on holiness instead of guilt, we are manifesting the Christ. “You are the means for God; not separate, nor with a life apart from His. His Life is manifest in you who are His Son.” (4:1-2)

What is the role the Holy Spirit plays in linking us with the Christ Mind?

“The Holy Spirit links the other part — the tiny, mad desire to be separate, different and special — to the Christ, to make the oneness clear to what is really one. … It is the Holy Spirit’s function to teach you how this oneness is experienced, what you must do that it can be experienced, and where you should go to do it.” (5:5, 6:4)

What is the truth that the Holy Spirit leads us all to?

“What is the same can not be different, and what is one can not have separate parts.” (7:7)
