Experience Lesson 219

Reflections of Light

(199) I am not a body, I am free.

Practice and cherish this idea today.

As you quiet your mind and open to the Holy Instant recognize your divinity, recognize you are the One Son of God Himself. You are not a body, yet you think you have a body. For an instant, let go of it and the world. Be in the awareness of mind and only mind. Then as you return to seemingly walking the world, see it with Christ’s vision, and with Love’s reflection.

As you believe you are a body in solid form, you perceive you are enslaved within the body. As such you are unaware of your higher Self and remain in the darkness of the ego’s thought system of separation.

In the Holy Instant your purpose changes from focus on bodily and worldly values, to a presence with the One Self. “The mind that serves the Holy Spirit is unlimited forever, in all ways, beyond the law of time and space, unbound by any preconceptions, and with strength and power to do whatever it is asked.” (L 199 P. 2:1)

As your mind returns to the world, your purpose changes from that of competing with and defending against other bodies, time and space, to your function of forgiving the world and the dream. You are the dreamer of the dream. You are the One Son of God. In truth you are as God created, changeless and eternal and limitless.

Give your mind to the Holy Spirit, and to God, the Source of Love. Embrace the peace and love and freedom that comes with seeing with Christ’s vision. You are in truth the changeless and limitless.

“Teach only Love, for that is what you are.”

You are Love’s Light

There is another way of looking at the world. A way in which holiness envelopes everything you see and giving and receiving are one. You are this holiness. Love created you like itself and there is nothing you can do to change this. You merely had a dream you were separate. You have chosen now to awaken from your sleep. You have chosen to remember who you are. You are Love’s Light.
