Reclaiming Our Identity as Spirit

[“I am spirit”] identifies you with your one Self. ²It accepts no split identity, nor tries to weave opposing factors into unity. ³It simply states the truth. ⁴Practice this truth today as often as you can, for it will bring your mind from conflict to the quiet fields of peace.

²You are the spirit lovingly endowed with all your Father’s Love and peace and joy. ³You are the spirit which completes Himself, and shares His function as Creator. ⁴He is with you always, as you are with Him.

³He will offer all His strength to every little effort that you make. ⁴Give Him the minutes which He needs today, to help you understand with Him you are the spirit that abides in Him, and that calls through His Voice to every living thing; offers His sight to everyone who asks; replaces error with the simple truth.

²Spirit am I, a holy Son of God, free of all limits, safe and healed and whole, free to forgive, and free to save the world.

⁵The Holy Spirit gives you peace today. ⁶Receive His words, and offer them to Him. (A Course in Miracles, W-97.1:1-4;2:2-4;4:3-4;7:2;8:5-6. See also ACIM Lesson 97 Insights.)

Everyone in this world who believes they are a body is suffering from an identity crisis. The body is vulnerable and capable of harm. It suffers because it is perceived to be weak. It tries to protect itself with myriad defense mechanisms.

Here we are given an alternative to this misidentification. We are not a body. We are spirit. Our Identity as spirit remains eternally united with our Creator. All of our Creator’s Love is ours. His peace and joy remain with us without limit. As we remind ourselves that we are spirit, we are reclaiming our true Identity.

In the dream of bodies, this seems difficult to recognize. But the Holy Spirit is in our mind offering us all of God’s strength in support of the recognition, “I am spirit.” Today we remind ourselves with this one thought to reclaim our true Identity.
