I am not a body. I am free.
Jesus shares with us in the Course that the last lesson he learned before he left was hearing only the Voice of the Holy Spirit speak to him all the time. In today’s lesson, and in many other lessons, he is reminding us and helping us to realize that each and everyone of us has this same Voice from God inside of us. He is also trying to help us realize that it is actually possible for us to learn how to hear the Voice of the Holy Spirit speak to us directly right now. This would be an example of spiritual hearing that he mentions in the Course. This is a gift for us in the dream from God Himself. It will help us to awaken, realize our True Friend and find our way Home. How exciting it is to learn that this is possible! To actually hear the Voice of God speak to us. Hurray! Thank you Father! Thank you! Let us realize that this is one of the major goals of the Course as we joyfully practice our listening in silence today.
I let go of the limits today and sail high above the illusion, the battleground, the world. The body has been transformed from the vexing device the ego has used to keep me bound, to the learning and communication device, the vessel of the Holy Spirit.
