I am the holy Son of God Himself. I cannot suffer, cannot be in pain; I cannot suffer loss, nor fail to do all that salvation asks.
You mean I don’t have to suffer? Yes!
It’s ingrained in us from a young age we have to suffer to reach the goal. Whether that goal be God, be successful, whatever it may be. Suffering is not required. It is a choice. It is how we view the world and our experiences in it.
When we realize our Identity in God, we find we are free. No more to play small and insignificant, when we are mighty in Him. As we repeat this lesson, “I am the holy Son of God Himself,” the ego may tempt the arrogance of the statement, instead focus on the precise beauty of the words. Be in joy at these words, because these words allow you to rise above the world and into the Light itself.
P.S. Listen to my Living the Lessons podcast episode for this lesson as I expanded a little more on what I wrote here. See link below.
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.
