Lesson 341

 

I can attack but my own sinlessness, And it is only that which keeps me safe. 

 

 

It is in my sinlessness, my innocence, my holiness that keeps me safe, because that is what God created. What God created is changeless, remaining one with Him. The Self God created is forever safe. 

 

The sense of vulnerability, the need to defend and attack, cannot come from the Self that knows Its changeless in God. It can only come from a false image that does not remember the Love and strength with God. When I feel vulnerable, when I feel attacked or when I feel a need to defend myself, it can only be because I believe I am something other than my Self. 

 

This world is the outward picture of an inward condition of the belief that I am separate from God. If I want to remember my innocence, if I want to remember the holiness God created me to be, it is useless to look to the world to find it, the world was made to hide it. I have within my mind a loving Teacher Who will gently guide me back to the remembrance of my Self as God created It. It is my inner Teacher who would teach me the lesson of my sinlessness. I will see my innocence reflected back to me from everyone and everything I look upon. I see this through the miracle of forgiveness. 

 

Today I will continue my practice of turning all my judgments over to the Holy Spirit and let Him judge on my behalf. Then I will learn to recognize the false image of a separate identity for what it is and awaken to my Self in God. Remembering that I am still as God created me is the same as remembering that I am innocent. Now is the time to let go of what could never be true. Now is the time to step back and follow the lead of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will lead me to what is eternally true as I practice quieting my mind to receive the truth today. 

 

 

Wishing each of you the deepest peace,

 

Ryan
