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.

I am not a body. I am free.
This is true for You as well as for Me. Consciousness We are, and We can always change Our minds to make needed correction.
So if We feel trapped or stressed in any way, a change of mind alleviates it, if We are willing.
Willingness always is the key to change. (Even a little bit if that is all that You can muster. For a little bit of willingness can work a miracle. In fact, a little bit of willingness is a miracle!)
1 Freedom must be impossible as long as you perceive a body as yourself. For bodies state that You are but a human. Therefore, You are not the Son of God. The body is a limit. Who would seek for freedom in a body looks for it where it can not be found. The body is, indeed, heavy baggage. The mind can be made free when it no longer sees itself as in a body, firmly tied to it and sheltered by its presence. Mind is not – cannot be – in anything! All things are in Mind! If this were the truth, the mind were vulnerable indeed! A little thing, it’s at the mercy of a body that ostensibly can die.
That is quite a giant misperception, yet it is the foundation of the dream.
2 The mind that serves the Holy Spirit is unlimited forever, – Be-ing Infinite – in all ways, beyond the laws of time and space, unbound by any preconceptions, and with strength and power to do whatever it is asked. This mind is always free, never at the mercy of the ego (which is merciless). Attack thoughts cannot enter such a mind because it has been given to the Source of Love. It’s kind and gentle. And fear can never enter in a mind that has attached itself to Love. For Love is safety. It rests in God, and who can be afraid who lives in Innocence and only loves? Can You imagine?
3 It is essential for your progress in this course that you accept today’s idea and hold it very dear. For to be Consciousness instead of body is quite priceless, and very precious. Be not concerned that to the ego it is quite insane. In actuality the ego does personify deepest insanity! The ego holds the body dear because it dwells in it and lives united with the home that it has made. Forthe seeming body is the ego’s only claim to fame. It is a part of the illusion that has sheltered it from being found illusory itself. You know, bodies seem so very, very solid; yet Reality is Spirit!
4 Here does it hide, and here it can be seen as what it is. Body lies, for it insists it is You. Declare your innocence, and you are free. Free to be aware that You are Spirit. The body disappears because you have no need of it except the need the Holy Spirit sees. For this, the body will appear as useful form for what the mind must do. Show Love’s forgiveness to sleeping Brothers. It thus becomes a vehicle which helps forgiveness be extended to the all-inclusive goal that it must reach according to God’s plan. All must forgive and be here for giving.
That’s very simple. You see Awakening is not a complicated process.
5 Cherish today’s idea, – that You’re consciousness – and practice it today and every day. How free You can be, unhampered by a dense sense of body. Make it a part of every practice period you take. Even if You don’t quite understand it. There is no thought that will not gain thereby in power to help the world, and none which will not gain in added gifts to you as well. I speak here of a Life of freedom, unhampered by Your dense sense of Your body. We sound the call of freedom round the world with this idea. (Novel as it seems.) And would you be exempt from the acceptance of the gifts you give? That’s quite impossible, for to give it You must have it first. You’re gifted by Your willingness to give.
6 The Holy Spirit is the home of minds that seek for freedom. The Holy Spirit is true Consciousness. In Him they find what they have sought. Everlasting Love, happiness and peace. The body’s purpose now is unambiguous. And it becomes perfect in the ability to serve an undivided goal. In conflict-free and unequivocal response to mind with but the thought of freedom as its goal, the body serves, and serves its purpose well. Be-ing a visible and tangible example of Love to every Other. Without the power to enslave, it is a worthy servant of the freedom which the mind within the Holy Spirit seeks. Bringing the good news: i.e. the Gospel!
7 Be free today, and carry freedom as your gift to those who still believe they are enslaved within a body, when, actually, body can but exist in mind alone. Mind is All there is. Be you free, so that the Holy Spirit can make use of your escape from bondage to set free the many who perceive themselves as bound and helpless and afraid. Let love replace their fears through you. Allow Yourself to be their example! Accept salvation now, and give your mind to Him Who calls to you to make this gift to Him. For He would give you perfect freedom, perfect joy, and hope that finds its full accomplishment in God. And You will share this freedom, joy, and hope with all Your Brothers.
There is no better gift for these Brothers.
8 You are God’s Son. In immortality you live forever. Would you not return your mind to this? Someone now must understand and live this joyously, so that everyOne can see. Then practice well the thought the Holy Spirit gives you for today. Your brothers stand released with you in it; the world is blessed along with you; God’s Son will weep no more, and Heaven offers thanks for the increase of joy your practice brings even to it. And God Himself extends His Love and happiness each time you say:
9 I am not a body. I am free.
I hear the Voice that God has given me, – belovèd Guidance –
And it is only this my mind obeys. (With the greatest joy!)
[Thank you Dear Brother]
