Reclaiming Our True Identity

I am as God created me.

Today we continue with the one idea which brings complete salvation; the one statement which makes all forms of temptation powerless; the one thought which renders the ego silent and entirely undone. ²You are as God created you. ³The sounds of this world are still, the sights of this world disappear, and all the thoughts that this world ever held are wiped away forever by this one idea. ⁴Here is salvation accomplished. ⁵Here is sanity restored.

True light is strength, and strength is sinlessness. ²If you remain as God created you, you must be strong and light must be in you. ³He Who ensured your sinlessness must be the guarantee of strength and light as well. ⁴You are as God created you.

³I am as God created me.
⁴I am His Son eternally.

⁵…the Son of God in you… is the Self that never sinned [separated], nor made an image to replace reality. ⁷This is the Self that never left Its home in God to walk the world uncertainly. ⁸This is the Self that knows no fear, nor could conceive of loss or suffering or death.

…be sure to respond to anyone who seems to irritate you with these words:

⁶You are as God created you.
⁷You are His Son eternally.
(A Course in Miracles, W-94.1:1–2:4;3:3-8;5:5-7. See also ACIM Lesson V Insights.)

When we choose to identify with the body, we choose a fake identity. We are trying to hide our real Identity beneath an image that limits and distorts the truth of What we are. We have so thoroughly convinced ourselves that we are this alias that we do not question its reality. We walk about in a world that seems hazardous to our existence. We need to be constantly alert to defend against outside forces that can harm us and even kill us. There is no peace in this seeming existence. But it is all false.

When we repeat today’s idea, we remind ourselves of our true Identity. Our true Identity is secure in the mind of God, held forever in His changelessness. The memory of our true Identity is always with us. It calls to us, leading us to search for what seems to be missing in our life. It is not missing. It is only hidden behind a false façade.

As we awaken to the fact that we are as God created us, the façade is dispelled and the Light of Love we are radiates throughout all eternity.
