CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON SIXTY-ONETRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face. The Guidance is in normal type In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You. When You see the word ‘YOU’ capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.
I am the light of the world.
Take heed of My words 2000 years ago, and don’t let the ego hide Your Light.1
1 Who is the light of the world except God’s Son? – And tell Me: Who else is God’s Son but You? – This, then, is merely a statement of the truth about yourself.
This is Who and What You are, and to seek to hide it is extremely arrogant. As if something else could take the place of God’s dear Holy Son.
It is the opposite of a statement of pride, of arrogance, or of self-deception. It does not describe the self-concept you have made. It does not refer to any of the characteristics with which you have endowed your idols. – a paltry puppet – It refers to you as you were created by God. It simply states the truth.
You are the Son of God, and You are the Light of the world, illumined by His eternal Radiance.
2 To the ego, today’s idea is the epitome of self-glorification. But the ego does not understand humility, mistaking it for self-debasement. Humility consists of accepting your role in salvation and in taking no other. – Humility is the willingness to not be in control. – It is not humility to insist that you cannot be the light of the world if that is the function God assigned to you. – It’s pure rebellion instigated solely by the ego. – It is only arrogance that would assert this function cannot be for you, and arrogance is always of the ego.
And Son of God, You are not an ego.
3 True humility requires that you accept today’s idea because it is God’s Voice Which tells you it is true. This is a beginning step in accepting your real function on earth. It is a giant stride toward taking your rightful place in salvation. It is a positive assertion of your right to be saved and an acknowledgment of the power that is given you to save others.
What am I saying here to All of You who read this? The Course In Miracles would not have drawn You to it, were You not ready to Awaken. That is the Function of the Light of the world, to waken All who are trapped in dreams.
You are Your Brother’s Saviour, and He is Yours. Says the hymn: “Abide not in the realm of dreams, no matter how fair it seems.”
You are here only to Awaken and to wake Your Brother. This is done through Love.
4 You will want to think about this idea as often as possible today. It is the perfect answer to all illusions and therefore to all temptation. It brings all the images you have made about yourself to the truth and helps you depart in peace, unburdened and certain of your purpose.
I am the Son of God. This means that I am not a ‘human’, but something far more good and wonderful: Son of God I am; thus all Good is possible both from Me as well as for Me. Brother, please instruct Me. How do I begin to live this Light?
That is so simple, Willing One. As You are willing to let go of all the lies You have believed about Yourself and Others. You are the Son of God and share His Mind. What God Knows belongs to You as well.
Simply accept this.
5 As many practice periods as possible should be undertaken today, although each one need not exceed a minute or two. They should begin with telling yourself:
6 I am the light of the world.
That is my only function.
That is why I am here.
To truly Be Who I am is all that God expects of Me.
7 Then think about these statements for a short while, preferably with your eyes closed if the situation permits.
This acknowledgement is quite powerful, yet gentle, peaceful. It is a relief to stop pretending.
Let a few related thoughts come to you, and repeat the idea to yourself if your mind wanders away from the central thought.
8 Be sure both to begin and end the day with a practice period. Thus you will awaken with an acknowledgment of the truth about yourself, reinforce it throughout the day, and turn to sleep as you reaffirm your function and your only purpose here. These two practice periods may be longer than the rest if you find them helpful and want to extend them.
I am the Light of the world. God does need Me to shine as He. This is My Function. And My Function brings only happiness.
9 Today’s idea goes far beyond the ego’s petty views of what you are and what your purpose is. As a bringer of salvation, this is obviously necessary. This is the first of a number of giant steps we will take in the next few weeks. Try today to begin to build a firm foundation for these advances.
Understanding Who and What You are will be very helpful. Your abilities stand waiting for You.
10 You are the light of the world. God has built His plan for the salvation of His Son on you.
Infinite is Your ability to radiate Your Love, and light up the world. Dear Brothers, Sisters, will You shine with Me?
You do know how to shine: Your Light is Love.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
