Keys to this Lesson
We have thought that things, medications, money, rituals, nutrition, friendship, other people would save us or heal us.
We have been mistaken by making our healing dependent on the outside world.
These have been laws that we have made to save us and as Jesus points out that make no sense.
They really serve no purpose in God’s World.
We think that here that the body is real, that it hurts and suffers. We want to save the body yet all of these things are only magic to keep us from seeing the truth about ourselves.
All these things before us we thought would keep us safe.
These are not the laws of God. This premise may seem strange to you as you are practicing this today. Yes, here in the world we are experiencing ourselves as a body and that we need to eat, drink and sleep. It is okay to still do these things yet we are taking a look at what is really behind it all. Going behind the curtain, so to speak.
God offers us joy and freedom. He wants us to know this.
Today we are opening ourselves up to listening to Him.
Repeat today’s idea OFTEN today.
I am under no laws but God’s.
As Jesus says,
We will repeat today’s idea until we have listened and understood there are no laws but God’s.
4-5 times an hour and in response to any temptation to experience ourselves as subject to the world’s laws.
This is a statement of freedom from the ego and the acknowledgement that we are God’s Son and we are saved.
Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
