Lesson 167 – Only one life

‘There is one life, and that I share with God.’

There are no different kinds of life, for life is like the truth. It does not have degrees. It is the one condition in which all that God created share. Like all His Thoughts, it has no opposite. There is no death because what God created shares His life. There is no death because an opposite to God does not exist. There is no death because the Father and the Son are one.

You think that death is of the body. Yet it is but an idea, irrelevant to what is seem as physical. Death is the thought that you are separate from your Creator. Death cannot come from life. Ideas remain united to their source. We share one life because we have one Source, a Source from which perfection comes to us, remaining always in the holy minds which He created perfect.

I took part in the Writers Without Borders performance at the MAC as part of Refugee Week today. Although there were quite a few references to death, majority of the pieces were on making life better for refugees. My piece, although called Refugee, was actually a poem about leaving a violent marriage and being brave enough to venture into another more loving one. There were some very moving pieces and I was particularly moved and humbled when a member of the audience approached me at the end, gave me a hug, burst into tears and thanked me for telling her story. There are so many similarities between us, souls on this journey through life.
