Lesson 97 – I am spirit

‘I am spirit.’

Today’s idea identifies you with your one Self. It accepts no split identity, nor tries to weave opposing factors into unity. It simply states the truth. Practice this truth as often as you can, for it will bring your mind from conflict to the quiet fields of peace. No chill of fear can enter, for your mind has been absolved from madness, letting go illusions of a split identity.

Today we try to bring reality still closer to your mind. Each time you practice, awareness is brought a little nearer at least; sometimes a thousand years or more are saved. You are the spirit in whose mind abides the miracle in which all time stands still; the miracle in which a minute spent in using these ideas becomes a time that has no limit and that has no end.

 Begin these happy exercises with the words:

Spirit I am, a holy Son of God, free of all limits, safe and healed and whole, free to forgive, and free to save the world.

The Holy Spirit gives you peace today.

Sometimes it’s such a challenge to move myself out of the way and listen to God’s voice directing my life. I woke this morning with full intentions of putting in a good stint on the parenting book, but a call mid morning to a meeting with a friend I’ve not seen for a long time was even more tempting. On the one hand I believed the message for today was to work on the book, and that going for a drink would be ignoring the task God had set for me.

Anyway I went for the drink and three things happened.

  1. My friend has offered to help market Dare to Love for me.
  2. She showed me a book she’s reading which has given me an idea for another book, based loosely on these blogs.
  3. We talked about cancer and explored a way she could talk to a friend who’s been given a year to live about alternatives to the allopathic remedies (or lack of them).

I am constantly reminded that the reason you find yourself somewhere is not always the reason you think I went.

It’s Easter Saturday. I’ve been invited to a surprise birthday party. I wasn’t planning to go, but after today I may just go and see whether there’s a surprise there for me too.
