Workbook PART II
L e s s o n 270I will not use the body’s eyes today. I’ll see how it feels – in some small measure – to be consciousness instead of body. Instead of believing what I think I see, I’ll turn to You, Father, to ask: What’s that there? What does that mean? Etcetera. And then, I will listen for Your answer. And I will heed it.Father, Christ’s Vision is Your gift to me, – to see as You do, in some small measure – and it has power to translate all that the body’s eyes behold into the sight of a forgiven world. Lifting the ego fog covering Your mind, it gives the Beholder clearer sight. How glorious and gracious is this world! – How lovely when We bypass the ego. How beautiful its natural wonders, all God-created. How beautiful Myr Others are when They’re seen apart from ego. Yet how much more will I perceive in it than sight can give. The ego view is a very limited experience. The world forgiven signifies Your Son acknowledges His Father, – is open to and expectant of seeing Reality – lets His dreams be brought to Truth, – for their uplifting – and waits expectantly the one remaining instant more of time, – yet not fooled by it – which ends forever as Your memory returns to him. And now His will is one with Yours. – and not just to His mind, for it fills His entire Be-ing – His function now is but Your own, and every thought except Your own is gone. Your own thoughts now freed from ego: Your Knowing of Holiness. This is Your Right Mind! Holiness presence-ing as happiness.2The quiet of today will bless our hearts, and through them peace will come to everyone. A quiet Love for all mankind, the sleeping Sonship, will bless the dream You call the world, and bring the Awakening to Light. Christ is our eyes today. His blessèd Vision can be Ours as We are very willing. And through His sight, we offer healing to the world through Him, the holy Son whom God created whole, the holy Son whom God created one. We All are that One.
What is the Body?
“Why?” says the ego, with grandiosity most arrogant and most obnoxious, “It is most obviously what I am. Anyone who isn’t blind can see that!”
1 The body is a fence the Son of God imagines he has built to separate parts of his Self from other parts. – The body states just who and what I am!” – It is within this fence, he thinks he lives, to die as it decays and crumbles. – Which does ensure that He can stay within the dream for just as long as He wants to. The ego worships death for it does demonstrate that God is cruel, No-One to trust! – For within this fence he thinks that he is safe from love. – What Love can there be in such a God? This is how He thinks; this is how He dreams, sleeping Son of God. His stance ensures that He won’t want to go Home, not to a God Who kills His children off. – Identifying with his safety, he regards himself as what his safety is. – He gives to Himself the only power; yet it isn’t real. –How else could he be certain he remains within the body, – and He fears to step outside His tiny boundaries for fear that it will put an end to His dream of – keeping love outside? and thereby end all dreaming forever. Do not underestimate the attachment of the sleeping Son of God to dreams.
2 The body will not stay. Yet this he sees as double safety. It ends dreams that are tiresome, yet does not end dreaming.
For the Son of God’s impermanence is “proof” his fences work and do the task his mind assigns to them. It proves to Him the separation does remain successful; His goal still achieved.
For if his oneness still remained untouched, who could attack and who could be attacked? Who could be victor? Who could be his prey? Who could be victim? Who the murderer? And if he did not die, what “proof” is there that God’s eternal Son can be destroyed? The story’s over. His whole ‘accomplishment’ but nonsense. The drama nothing. Eons of ‘history’ shown up as pointless.
3 The body is a dream. – And, thus, never real. All ‘history’ a fantasy, including ego’s body, its prized ‘creation’. – Like other dreams, it sometimes seems to picture happiness but can quite suddenly revert to fear, where every dream is born. – And why is this so? – For only love creates in truth, and truth can never fear. Made to be fearful, must the body serve the purpose given it. But we can change the purpose which the body will obey by changing what we think that it is for. It was made solely for separation.
4 The body is the means by which God’s Son returns to sanity. – For through it can S/He access Her Brothers, He touch His Brothers. – Though it was made to fence him into hell without escape, yet has the goal of Heaven been exchanged for the pursuit of hell. Now it is reversed! The Son of God extends his hand to reach his brother and to help him walk along the road with him. Bodies joined in the Love of Brotherhood. No longer to please Oneself, but now to include All Others.
Now is the body holy. Now it serves to heal the mind that it was made to kill. Now it chooses Life, its one true Purpose.
5 You will identify with what you think will make you safe. Whatever it may be, you will believe that it is one with you. And so it becomes; Your choice makes it so.
Your safety lies in truth and not in lies. For Reality only is benign.
Love is your safety. It always has been, and it always will be.
Fear does not exist. Only in the dreaming did it seem real, and Truth shows up its unreality. Identify with love, and you are safe. Identify with love, and you are home. Identify with love, and find your Self.
And as Yourself, eternal happiness! Welcome Home Loved One!
