Lesson 213 – Back to school

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

(193) All things are lessons God would have me learn

A lesson is a miracle which God offers to me, in place of thought I made that hurts me. What I learn of Him becomes the way I am set free. Sand so I choose to learn His lessons and forget my own

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

I was having a pretty productive and easy going day until late in the afternoon when someone lied to me. What’s more, even after information had been presented which clearly confirmed his lying, he continued with his story. As this is a recurring pattern with this person I decided to be as tactful as I could, while sending him love to transmute the fear which was leading him to tell lies, into love.

It made me look again at times when I’m tempted to, or actually do tell lies. It’s a brave and fearless person who tells the truth all the time. Have you ever seen the reaction when children state the obvious around adults, when they speak the truth about what they see (think of The Emperor’s New Clothes). Our fear of rejection, of being ridiculed, or of hurting someone’s feelings persuades us to override what we know to be the truth.

I held this at the forefront of my mind during the conversation, and thought of the lesson ‘In my defencelessness my safety lies.’ He was obviously lying to defend himself, joining him in a battle was futile, and I let it go – after all, no one was harmed.

And the lesson today? Let it go-with love.
