What am I? (Reading)
I am God’s Son, complete and healed and whole, shining in the reflection of His Love. In me is His creation sanctified and guaranteed eternal life. In me is love perfected, fear impossible, and joy established without opposite. I am the holy home of God Himself. I am the Heaven where His Love resides. I am His holy Sinlessness Itself, for in my purity abides His Own.
Our use for words is almost over now. Yet in the final days of this one year we gave to God together, you and I, we found a single purpose that we shared. And thus you joined with me, so what I am you are as well. The truth of what we are is not for words to speak of nor describe. Yet we can realise our function here, and words can speak of this and teach it, too, if we exemplify the words in us.
We are the bringers of salvation. Our are the eyes through which Christ’s vision sees the world redeemed from every thought of sin. We are the holy messengers of God who speaks for him and carry his words to everyone whom he has sent to us, we learn that it is written in our hearts.
Lesson 351 (Lesson)
My sinless brother is my guide to peace.
My sinful brother is my guide to pain.
And which I choose to see I will behold.
Who is my brother but Your holy Son? And if I see him sinful I proclaim myself a sinner, not a Son of God; alone and friendless in a fearful world. Yet this perception is a choice I make, and can relinquish. I can also see my brother sinless, as Your holy Son. And with this choice I see my sinlessness, my everlasting Comforter and Friend beside me, and my way secure and clear. Choose, then, for me, Father, through Your Voice. For He alone gives judgement in your name.
Hard to believe we’re coming to the end of the course. This year feels as if it’s whizzed by. So, first day of this penultimate set of lessons finds me failing miserably to do any editing at all, but I did help to put up the Christmas tree. I went to my first circle sitting at ASH Centre and did my first ever one-to-one public reading. Scary but true. This was followed by Christmas treats – also met another erotic writer. She’s offered to show me how to publish directly on the web.
You know how satisfying it feels when you put a tick bedside something that’s been on your list for a long time, like almost a year? YES! I had one of those moments. My New Years list contained ‘re-connect with family abroad’ Last night I make one five phone calls. I’ll fit the rest in before the year is out. There, I’ve said it publicly now, so I’ll have to do it.
