I am not a body. I am free.

Unlimited. That’s what we are. UNLIMITED!

We believe otherwise because we see the body as a limitation. I know I have. With my fibromyalgia, or migraines, or anything else that goes along with my body or just being a body itself, seemingly has presented challenges. It seems to stop me from doing what I desire to do or live my dreams. Yet what are my dreams, but dreams! It is not reality in God.

If I sit quietly with today’s lesson, as I have this morning, it is where I find freedom. Freedom is beyond this body and its sense of limitation. The only limitation is my self-imposed limitation. Granted in form, there may be activities I cannot do, yet my mind is very powerful. I can experience Heaven with my mind. It does not need my body to do so.

When I stop believing my limitation is my body, then I may use the body for a holier purpose. I would use it to share God’s gifts with the world. I would use it to let everyone know that love and happiness is theirs, as well as mine. God extended this to all of us as one. We can replace the fear with love. I do not need to make my body or anyone my enemy. All can be friend to me as I redesign the goal, and leave the goal only for God.

We are to practice our freedom today with this lesson. I know I will be doing so, will you join me?

 I am not a body. I am free. I hear the Voice that God has given me, and it is only this my mind obeys.

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.
