Lesson 212 – A great function

I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.

(192) I have a function God would have be fill.

I seek the function that would set me free from all the vain illusions of the world. Only the function God has given me can offer freedom. Only this I seek, and only this will I accept as mine.

I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.

I went for a jog this morning, despite the grey skies and the drizzle. I was preparing myself for a day of filing and sorting out a host of little jobs, none of them interesting. I borrowed a friend’s iPod shuffle because my mp3 player’s not working. It’s quite interesting running to someone else’s music. The first part of my run I was accompanied by Enrique Inglesis, and, just when I’d had enough of him (there’s only so much I can take) I was most amazed when the OM chanting hour long meditation came on.

It’s quite a surreal, and a strangely beautiful feeling doing a running meditation. It’s intensely calming. It allowed me time to reflect on today’s lesson, and on my function here. It’s only when I forget that I’m here to serve that I get anxious. And that the service is without any thought of reciprocation. Maybe next time I’ll start with that and see how I get on.

Since a couple of Thursdays ago, when I remembered who I am, and put down the sword of defence, my peace has remained. Long may it last!
