From last year’s writing, which because of the days I fell behind, coincides with a Sunday last year. Strangely enough, there is a similar dynamic happening a year later, which I won’t go into, but I am happy to be reminded that I am indeed, the holy Son of God Himself and that so is everyone else. I am also grateful that vacation is nearly at an end so that I can return to the regular rhythm of my life and also grateful that my husband and I dance together so gracefully that I always enjoy his companionship. Here is lesson 211:

You are the Holy Son of God Himself.

Spiritual Being

The end of July is here and as I watch the time slip past me, I sit in humility, begging Spirit to heal my soul and make me a better person.  The living room still stinks of propane and I awoke this morning from dreams that reflected my upset from feeling attacked yesterday.  I need my spiritual practice to sooth me.  I need to rest in God to refrain from ranting and raving.  I need to heal and the only way I know to do that is prayer and meditation.  The Voice for Love resides in me, as it does in everyone, and I just need enough quiet so that I can hear it over my ego.  Lord help me.  I so hate feeling wounded, but I do.

Thank heavens its Sunday.  It is my day to write a prayer tomorrow for the church website.  Fortunately, the other Practitioners have been great lately about sending extra prayers and turning theirs in when they should, which is awesome and I am grateful, but it also means I write fewer prayers.  Anyway, I am going to attend early service since I no longer have to take the fifth Sunday of the month for teaching the kids.  Perhaps after, I can come home and just work on healing, though if I end up feeling sick again from the propane, I may spend the day in bed reading as I did on Friday.

Today’s lesson:

LESSON 211

Review of Lesson 191

I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.

(191) I am the holy Son of God Himself.

In silence and in true humility I seek God’s glory,
to behold it in the Son whom He created as my Self.

I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.

Like all the lessons lately (and maybe even all the lessons, period) this is a call to remember who I am.

I was church yesterday for a Youth and Family Ministries’ retreat/training and one of the women there, the mom of a kid I adore, exclaimed, “I am God. People outside of this community don’t get it when I say that.  They act like I’m trying to say I have dominion over all of them and that’s not it at all.  I am God, but so are you. If I’m trying to rule you, I am acting from ego not my God-self.”

Exactly.

This lesson is about that, but also about recognizing that there is no separation from the Divine; so the truth of who each of us is each of us is the holy Son of God Himself.  Going back to Lesson 97, I am spirit.  Not a body, but spirit.  Lesson 97 says, 2 We state again the truth about your Self, the holy Son of God Who rests in you, whose mind has been restored to sanity. You are the spirit lovingly endowed with all your Father’s Love and peace and joy. You are the spirit which completes Himself, and shares His function as Creator. He is with you always, as you are with Him.”

The commentary on this lesson from the Circle of Atonement website says, “To put a different twist on a familiar saying, we are not human beings seeking a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings who think we are having a human experience. We did not suddenly spring into existence at birth, and we do not pass out of existence when the body stops functioning. We are aspects of an immortal being, existing entirely outside of time. “I am the holy Son of God Himself.”

“Here is your declaration of release from bondage of the world,” says the Course.

The sermon this morning at church should be a continuation of our theme of forgiveness, although we have a guest speaker so we will see how that goes.  All I know for sure is that church can’t be a bad thing when I am struggling to get past feelings of anger and upset to find the “holy Son of God Himself” within.  I know it is in me.  I know it is in him.

But some part of me still wants to call the guy an asshole.

Sigh.

Namaste, my friends, Namaste.
