A Course in Miracles: Lesson 177
Some mornings I go into my Tut quote file for a little inspiration. The file is arranged by date, nothing more. Here’s the one I clicked on first today. Don’t you just love synchronicity? This just about sums up today’s lesson:
You will live forever.
(First name) you will live forever.
Kind of puts everything else into perspective, huh?
I still remember the first time this truth really sank in. It changed everything. Yes, I “knew” about eternal life and all that. But to really, really, grok my own eternal consciousness was, as today’s lesson says, freeing.
The two review lessons today are, once again, interlocking. We are free because we are One with our Source. Source is eternal, and creates only like Itself. “God is but Love, and therefore so am I.” Can you allow this to sink in? The evidence is abundant if you choose to look for it.
Practice today’s review lesson for about 15 minutes in the morning and evening. Take your seat and get comfortable. Keep your back straight and let the tongue lightly touch the roof of the mouth. Gently place your awareness on the breath and then close your eyes. Sink more deeply into relaxation on the out-breath, letting everything go. When you are ready, say in your mind:
“God is but Love and therefore so am I.”
“There is no death. The Son of God is free”.
“God is but Love, and therefore so am I”.
“Now we are one with God Who is our Source.”
“God is but Love, and therefore so am I.”
Feel the meaning behind these words as you say them to yourself. You are free because you are One. You are One forever and forever. And yet you are also your own unique aspect of Self. There is no either/or – only Both/And.
Spend 15 minutes in quiet contemplation. Watch the breath and watch your thoughts. If the mind wanders, return to one or both of the lessons. Use it like a mantra. Feel the words. They have an energetic imprint that will lift your vibration. When you have finished, arise and continue your day or sleep with the peace of your contemplation.
Receive today. Give today. Be in peace today. Remind yourself often that you remain as God created you. It’s your inheritance and nothing can take that away.
