L e s s o n  213

I am not a body. I am free.  Christ is not a person.  It is the way of Be-ing Real that brings total freedom.  Do You understand?  When You are locked within a body that isn’t even real, You are in prison to its every whim and vagary.  Would You be this when Christ comes to You moment by moment, reminding You of Truth: For I am still as God created me.  You are still as God creates You, for there is no past, nor is there any future.  It is all going on right now, and it is always here and now.  For if You were ‘over there’ it would still be here.  And if it were ‘then’ it still would be now to You, for there is only now.

Although You may believe that You relive yesterday again and then again, You are doing it now.  This is the nature of the so-called separation, to refuse to be here now.

[193] All things are lessons God would have me learn.  Thus every instant has the potential to be holy if You will be here now.  And in this now, do You Love Your Brother.

You cannot analyze it, nor figure it out from what was, but simply move into the now and stay here permanently.  Lo and behold, watch Heaven re-appear.

1 A lesson is a miracle which God
offers to me in place of thoughts I made
that hurt me. 
Every instant He but offers You back Our Reality, which is also Yours.

What I learn of Him becomes the way I am set free.  For the dream is prison, while Reality is but freedom.

And so I choose
to learn His lessons and forget my own.
 For I would be freed from endless dreaming.  In other words, Awakened to Heaven.  A Heaven that is right here and right now.

from endless dreaming.  In other words, Awakened to Heaven.  A Heaven that is right here and right now.

Review VI

R6:1 For this review, we take but one idea each day and practice it as often as is possible.  – Which naturally will be as often as You choose it to be. – Besides the time you give morning and evening, which should not be less than 15 minutes, and the hourly remembrances you make throughout the day, use the idea as often as you can between them. Each of these ideas alone would be sufficient for salvation, if it were learned truly. Each would be enough to give release to you and to the world from every form of bondage and invite the memory of God to come again.  The memory of God is but Your Reality.  Therefore, it is not of the past but is present right here and right now.

2 With this in mind, we start our practicing in which we carefully review the thoughts the Holy Spirit has bestowed on us in our last 20 lessons. Each contains the whole curriculum if understood, practiced, accepted, and applied to all the seeming happenings throughout the day.   You are understanding that these ideas – Gifts of the Holy Spirit – are Your key to freedom from the hell in which You are.  Even if You aren’t suffering, Your Brothers and Your Sisters are; most of the current seven billion just in this dream.  I know You want to help to set them free.

This Course aims not so much to heal specific instances in the dream, although it does.  Its goal is total freedom by healing the entire dream.

One is enough. – The “One” refers to just one of the ideas, yet is has a double meaning.  For if just One of You would be 100 percent faithful, that would be sufficient. For One of You – with Me – make the Two who will undo the dream.  One is sufficient, more is efficient. – But for that one, there must be no exceptions made.  –  Once again We have a dual meaning and opportunity.  And so we need to use them all and let them blend as one, as each contributes to the whole we learn.  And yet, remember: One more is enough.

3 These practice sessions, like our last review, are centered round a central theme with which we start and end each lesson. It is this:

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

Your statement of freedom.  Your passport to Heaven.  The Truth is most magnificent.

5 The day begins and ends with this. And we repeat it every time the hour strikes or we remember in between we have a function that transcends the world we see. Beyond this and a repetition of the special thought we practice for the day, no form of exercise is urged except a deep relinquishment of everything that clutters up the mind and makes it deaf to reason, sanity, and simple truth.  Your faithfulness in this appointed and important task brings great joy to Heaven, as well as My deep appreciation.

6 We will attempt to get beyond all words and special forms of practicing for this review. For we attempt this time to reach a quickened pace along a shorter path to the serenity and peace of God. We merely close our eyes and then forget all that we thought we knew and understood. For thus is freedom given us from all we did not know and failed to understand.  Now You do know and understand the meaning of My words to Nicodemus: “Ye must be born again”.1

7 There is but one exception to this lack of structuring. Permit no idle thought to go unchallenged. If you notice one, deny its hold and hasten to assure your mind that this is not what it would have. Then gently let the thought which you denied be given up in sure and quick exchange for the idea you practice for the day.  And thus do You replace error with Truth.

8 When you are tempted, hasten to proclaim your freedom from temptation as you say:

9 This thought I do not want. I choose instead….

10 And then repeat the idea for the day, and let it take the place of what you thought. Beyond such special applications of each day’s idea, we will add but a few formal expressions or specific thoughts to aid your practicing. Instead we give these times of quiet to the Teacher Who instructs in quiet, speaks of peace, and gives our thoughts whatever meaning they may have.

11 To Him I offer this review for you. I place you in His charge and let Him teach you what to do and say and think each time you turn to Him.  – Through this practice does Your Reality as the Holy Spirit become clearer and clearer to You. – He will not fail to be available to you each time you call to Him to help you. – For closer is He to You than breathing.2Let us offer Him the whole review we now begin, and let us also not forget to Whom it has been given as we practice day by day, advancing toward the goal He set for us, allowing Him to teach us how to go, and trusting Him completely for the way each practice period can best become a loving gift of freedom to the world.  As I have said before, Love does bless both Giver and Giftee.

I am not a body. I am free.  I’ve thought that I made Myself this dense body and this dense world, and the Truth is: Nothing’s really happened!  It’s all been a dream, and not a nice one.  Yet still I am the Christ, the Son of God, For I am still as God created me.  And God’s Love is still All in All for Me.

[192] I have a function God would have me fill.  Indeed You do.  It’s to be true to You, the Christ that You are, which is who?  True You.  Let Me make this very clear right now.  You are not a ‘human being’.  Your Be-ing is Divine.  For just as I, You are the Holy Son of God, now and forever.

1 I seek the function that would set me free – and it is just to be completely freed – from all the vain illusions of the world.

God would have Me remember Who I really am and Be It!  When I am One with You dear Elder Brother, there is no greater happiness within/without the dream.

Dear Sisters and dear Brothers, when You reach out to Me, “My cup” too “runneth over.”  How great My pleasure.


Only the function God has given me
can offer freedom. Only this I seek,
and only this will I accept as mine.

I am not a body. I am free.  Yet all I seem to know of Myself is body, and it does not feel at all free!  So what’s the story!
For I am still as God created me. 
So how does Our loving God continually create Me?

It’s very simple belovèd Sisters, belovèd Belovèd Brothers.  I will repeat it until You get it: You are consciousness!  You’re not a body.  And consciousness is everywhere! 

[191] I am the holy Son of God Himself.  His blessèd Extension of Love and Life; Intelligence Itself.

1 In silence and in true humility, – and this silence includes cessation of any thinking – I seek God’s glory to behold it in
the Son whom He created as my Self.

The seeming ‘self’ You know right now – yet have not always known – is not the Self We are seeking.  For that seeming ‘self’ is but Your poor declaration of independence.

There You are waving Your flag: Don’t tread on Me!  Now I am not knocking early America at all.  In fact, Your Constitution was a grand example of transcendence of ego.  Unfortunately, it was written by and for ego’s who would not treat all their Brothers fairly.

Yet each instant holds the promise that You All can be transformed by Your innate capacity to Love.

Right now, this instant, You can accept the holy opportunity and do it!

Temptation to Disbelieve

TEMPTATION to Disbelieve in
A COURSE IN MIRACLES


Article by Rev Reja Janaki Joy Green*
~*~*~*~*~*~

What does it really mean to be ‘tempted’?

Webster’s Dictionary defines the word TEMPT as:

Definition of TEMPT

1 : to entice to do wrong by promise of pleasure or gain
[Tempted to go off my diet!; I’m tempted to reject these ideas since they seem to be telling me that I need to relinquish even the pleasure and joy I receive from loving those in my life .]

2 a : to make trial of : test [Evaluate so as to accept or reject]
   b : provoke tempt fate>  [To arouse a feeling or action]
   c : to risk the dangers of [Some think that wet hair tempts a cold.]

3 a : to induce to do something [The pull was tempting.]
   b : to cause to be strongly inclined <was>tempted to call it quits></was>

Origin of TEMPT

Middle English, from Anglo-French tempter, tenter, from Latin temptare, tentare to feel, try First Known Use: 13th century

Whatever we value intensely in our life we seem to identify with and if it were taken from us, we feel as though our life, as we know it, were over. It no longer seems worth living. Perhaps it is a son or daughter, a spouse, a title, a job, our health which might be or has been taken from us. Now life has no meaning. “That which I deeply valued and gave my life meaning, is gone!”

We might also value JOY in our lives, feeling as though it were our only hope of survival in a world made sick by fear. And if this JOY were threatened, then we feel as though our life were threatened as well. And when the threat seems to have occurred, we feel we have to respond in some way or the JOY will be gone and so will our Joie de vivre; our reason for being here.

And the response we choose is determined by what we think is TRUE about the JOY and what we think is TRUE about ourselves.

If we feel as though our JOY is something that can be threatened, we will be enticed to give up the offending thought system so as to protect our JOY. [This is the first item in the definition of being TEMPTED.] If we feel as though we are a mortal being, finite and at the mercy of the outside world, we will believe we need to protect ourselves.

We might feel as though the Thought system of the Holy Spirit, our Right Mind, A Course in Miracles, has put us on a restrictive regime, too harsh for us to continue. Especially if the regime means we are called to give up JOY!

Yet we are taught in A Course in Miracles that “The Holy Spirit is the spirit of JOY.” A If we trust the Voice for God, the Holy Spirit, the JOY in our hearts, would it ever tell us to release it? Wouldn’t our Holy Minds tell us that the JOY we feel in our lives is as eternal as we are?

“Joy is eternal. You can be sure indeed that any seeming happiness that does not last is really fear. Joy does not turn to sorrow, for the eternal cannot change. But sorrow can be turned to joy, for time gives way to the eternal.” ACIM-OE CH 22, par 18

JOY is not only what we HAVE, as a Gift of God, it’s what we truly ARE. When we are feeling JOYOUS, we are in our Right Mind!  Never would we be counseled to reject this, for this is the only reality this dream has.

The second definition of TEMPT is to ‘make trial of; to test’.  And so our minds may ask, “How could this curriculum be true when it asks me to give up JOY!” We put the curriculum on trial, test it and judge it. Then we listen to the ego, which knows nothing, as it tell us we are guilty if we feel JOY. It not only tells us this untruth, but then it tells us that this is what A Course in Miracles is teaching. It cautions us that we need to exchange this restrictive thought system for what is familiar to us and less threatening, or we’ll lose everything dear to us. It suggests that we’d rather be guilty than give up JOY! And love tells us to “Hear not this now!”

When we think that our relationships are beginning to bring us pain, we hear the ego tell us to get rid of them for something that will bring us JOY. When we think that our ‘thoughts’ are beginning to bring us pain, we again hear the ego tell us to get rid of them, in exchange for what will bring us JOY.

And the Voice for Love teaches us thus:

“Now the ego counsels thus-substitute for this another relationship to which your former goal was quite appropriate. You can escape from your distress only by getting rid of each other. You need not part entirely if you choose not to do so. But you must exclude major areas of fantasy from each other to save your sanity.

“Hear not this now! Have faith in Him Who answered you. He heard. Has He not been very explicit in His answer?

“Now He asks for faith a little longer, even in bewilderment. For this will go, and you will see the justification for your faith emerge to bring you shining conviction. Abandon Him not now, nor each other. This relationship has been reborn as holy. “ ACIM-OE Ch 17, par 49

We may ask ourselves, “Can our relationship with A Course in Miracles be reborn as holy? Can we have faith, ‘even in bewilderment?’ HE asks us to “Abandon Him not now, nor each other. ”

“In every difficulty, all distress, and each perplexity Christ calls to you and gently says, “My brother, choose again.” He would not leave one source of pain unhealed nor any image left to veil the truth. He would remove all misery from you, whom God created altars unto joy. He would not leave you comfortless, alone in dreams of hell, but would release your minds from everything that hides His face from you. His holiness is yours because He is the only power that is real in you. His strength is yours because He is the Self that God created as His only Son.” ACIM-OE Ch 31, par 87  ♥

TRANSCRIBER’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.

 

L e s s o n  210

I am not a body. I am free.  FREEDOM! What a joyous word and what a joyous experience is Our Freedom.
For I am still as God created me. 
And God has made Us all completely free!  We cannot limit God, nor can We limit She, He and Me.

[190] I choose the joy of God instead of pain.  Sounds much better, choosing joy, doesn’t it?  All of this is very, very simple.  God is Love, could You choose any better?

1 Pain is my own idea. –And not a bright one! – It is not a thought of God, but one I thought apart
from Him and from His Will. 
– You didn’t say: ‘I think I’ll suffer.  You chose separation. Since Oneness is but pure happiness, the opposite is misery, which is a far cry from God’s will. – His Will is joy and only joy for His beloved Son. – And You are His Son, dearly belovèd. – And that I choose instead of what I made.  Dear Father-Mother, let Me be not mine but Your Creation.

REVIEW VI

Review VI

R6:1 For this review, we take but one idea each day and practice it as often as is possible.  – Which naturally will be as often as You choose it to be. – Besides the time you give morning and evening, which should not be less than 15 minutes, and the hourly remembrances you make throughout the day, use the idea as often as you can between them. Each of these ideas alone would be sufficient for salvation, if it were learned truly. Each would be enough to give release to you and to the world from every form of bondage and invite the memory of God to come again.  The memory of God is but Your Reality.  Therefore, it is not of the past but is present right here and right now.

2 With this in mind, we start our practicing in which we carefully review the thoughts the Holy Spirit has bestowed on us in our last 20 lessons. Each contains the whole curriculum if understood, practiced, accepted, and applied to all the seeming happenings throughout the day.   You are understanding that these ideas – Gifts of the Holy Spirit – are Your key to freedom from the hell in which You are.  Even if You aren’t suffering, Your Brothers and Your Sisters are; most of the current seven billion just in this dream.  I know You want to help to set them free.

This Course aims not so much to heal specific instances in the dream, although it does.  Its goal is total freedom by healing the entire dream.

One is enough. – The “One” refers to just one of the ideas, yet is has a double meaning.  For if just One of You would be 100 percent faithful, that would be sufficient. For One of You – with Me – make the Two who will undo the dream.  One is sufficient, more is efficient. – But for that one, there must be no exceptions made.  –  Once again We have a dual meaning and opportunity.  And so we need to use them all and let them blend as one, as each contributes to the whole we learn.  And yet, remember: One more is enough.

3 These practice sessions, like our last review, are centered round a central theme with which we start and end each lesson. It is this:

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

Your statement of freedom.  Your passport to Heaven.  The Truth is most magnificent.

5 The day begins and ends with this. And we repeat it every time the hour strikes or we remember in between we have a function that transcends the world we see. Beyond this and a repetition of the special thought we practice for the day, no form of exercise is urged except a deep relinquishment of everything that clutters up the mind and makes it deaf to reason, sanity, and simple truth.  Your faithfulness in this appointed and important task brings great joy to Heaven, as well as My deep appreciation.

6 We will attempt to get beyond all words and special forms of practicing for this review. For we attempt this time to reach a quickened pace along a shorter path to the serenity and peace of God. We merely close our eyes and then forget all that we thought we knew and understood. For thus is freedom given us from all we did not know and failed to understand.  Now You do know and understand the meaning of My words to Nicodemus: “Ye must be born again”.1

7 There is but one exception to this lack of structuring. Permit no idle thought to go unchallenged. If you notice one, deny its hold and hasten to assure your mind that this is not what it would have. Then gently let the thought which you denied be given up in sure and quick exchange for the idea you practice for the day.  And thus do You replace error with Truth.

8 When you are tempted, hasten to proclaim your freedom from temptation as you say:

9 This thought I do not want. I choose instead….

10 And then repeat the idea for the day, and let it take the place of what you thought. Beyond such special applications of each day’s idea, we will add but a few formal expressions or specific thoughts to aid your practicing. Instead we give these times of quiet to the Teacher Who instructs in quiet, speaks of peace, and gives our thoughts whatever meaning they may have.

11 To Him I offer this review for you. I place you in His charge and let Him teach you what to do and say and think each time you turn to Him.  – Through this practice does Your Reality as the Holy Spirit become clearer and clearer to You. – He will not fail to be available to you each time you call to Him to help you. – For closer is He to You than breathing.2Let us offer Him the whole review we now begin, and let us also not forget to Whom it has been given as we practice day by day, advancing toward the goal He set for us, allowing Him to teach us how to go, and trusting Him completely for the way each practice period can best become a loving gift of freedom to the world.  As I have said before, Love does bless both Giver and Giftee.

TRANSCRIBER’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.

L e s s o n  209

I am not a body. I am free.  If I’m not a body – meaning ‘matter’ – then what on earth and in Heaven am I?  That’s a great question.  You’ve spent eons thinking ‘matter’ is Your substance.  It isn’t.  You are made up of Holy Qualities.  They are all distilled into Love.  And this is God’s creating.
For I am still as God created me.  For it is not a one-shot occasion.  It is present tense right now and always.

[189] I feel the Love of God within me now.  Rising up within Me, as Me, filling Me and spilling over, I’m lavishing It on Every One and everything that’s present here for Me.

The ego tries to tell Me that there is no such thing as the Love of God as Me, and the ego lies.  The ego’s wicked babblings are what seem to make Me downhearted, as it hisses: ‘It is hopeless.’  All things with God are not only possible but probable!

1 The Love of God is what created me.  God, Love, is My very holy Substance.  God, in Be-ing Source, is also Substance.

The Love of God, creating Me, is not making something new, but simply Be-ing Its Self, and I, too, am part of that Self.

While You seem to be so real out there on Your own, You really aren’t.  It’s all a bizarre delusion.


The Love of God is everything I am.  Do You see these eyes?  They are Love.  Do You hear My voice?  It is Love.  Do You know My mind?  It is Love.  Can You feel My touch?  It is Love.  Do You smell that rose?  It is Love.

Thus can We say: All is Love Infinite and Its Infinite manifestation.  Just so are the Sons of God Infinitely manifested.


The Love of God proclaimed me as His Son.  And yet there is no separation.  For We cannot say properly: Father and Son, just as We don’t make implied two of a note of music and its tone.  The note and its tone are One. There is just One complete Idea: Source and Its Offspringing.  And there is only One.


The Love of God within me sets me free.  The Love of God that is Me is Freedom.

Review VI

R6:1 For this review, we take but one idea each day and practice it as often as is possible.  – Which naturally will be as often as You choose it to be. – Besides the time you give morning and evening, which should not be less than 15 minutes, and the hourly remembrances you make throughout the day, use the idea as often as you can between them. Each of these ideas alone would be sufficient for salvation, if it were learned truly. Each would be enough to give release to you and to the world from every form of bondage and invite the memory of God to come again.  The memory of God is but Your Reality.  Therefore, it is not of the past but is present right here and right now.

2 With this in mind, we start our practicing in which we carefully review the thoughts the Holy Spirit has bestowed on us in our last 20 lessons. Each contains the whole curriculum if understood, practiced, accepted, and applied to all the seeming happenings throughout the day.   You are understanding that these ideas – Gifts of the Holy Spirit – are Your key to freedom from the hell in which You are.  Even if You aren’t suffering, Your Brothers and Your Sisters are; most of the current seven billion just in this dream.  I know You want to help to set them free.

This Course aims not so much to heal specific instances in the dream, although it does.  Its goal is total freedom by healing the entire dream.

One is enough. – The “One” refers to just one of the ideas, yet is has a double meaning.  For if just One of You would be 100 percent faithful, that would be sufficient. For One of You – with Me – make the Two who will undo the dream.  One is sufficient, more is efficient. – But for that one, there must be no exceptions made.  –  Once again We have a dual meaning and opportunity.  And so we need to use them all and let them blend as one, as each contributes to the whole we learn.  And yet, remember: One more is enough.

3 These practice sessions, like our last review, are centered round a central theme with which we start and end each lesson. It is this:

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

Your statement of freedom.  Your passport to Heaven.  The Truth is most magnificent.

5 The day begins and ends with this. And we repeat it every time the hour strikes or we remember in between we have a function that transcends the world we see. Beyond this and a repetition of the special thought we practice for the day, no form of exercise is urged except a deep relinquishment of everything that clutters up the mind and makes it deaf to reason, sanity, and simple truth.  Your faithfulness in this appointed and important task brings great joy to Heaven, as well as My deep appreciation.

L e s s o n  208

I am not a body. I am free.  I am not ‘matter’, I am Light.  That’s what You see when You look at the Real Me.
For I am still as God created me. 
Whole and pure and free.  That’s Me, and that’s also We!

[188] The peace of God is shining in me now.  The Peace of God is shining, and It’s Me!  Who else could It be, but We, including He and She and We.

Let Me come out from under the bushel basket, where We’ve all been hiding for eons, and Our Light will but outshine the sun and moon and stars, and all the galaxies!

The minute that My mind is quiet, for I am occupied with Love and loving, then does the Light burst forth to but illumine the Universe.

1 I will be still and let the earth be still
along with me. And in that stillness, we
will find the peace of God. It is within
my heart, which witnesses to God Himself

Can You imagine 100% attentive stillness?  The loving majesty of the quiet awareness of God?
