My body is a wholly neutral thing.

   We just love how Holy Spirit guides us to just the perfect sections in the Course to expand on the Workbook Lesson. The theme He has given us is sinlessness within one’s self and our brothers.

To see a sinless body is impossible, for holiness is positive and the body is merely neutral. It is not sinful, but neither is it sinless. As nothing, which it is, the body cannot meaningfully be invested with attributes of Christ or of the ego. Either must be an error, for both would place the attributes where they cannot be. And both must be undone for purposes of truth. T-20.VII.4:4-8

Your question should not be, “How can I see my brother without the body?” Ask only, “Do I really wish to see him sinless?” And as you ask, forget not that his sinlessness is <your> escape from fear. T-20.VII.9: 1-3

   I can only be the Son of God. And what God created is wholly perfect and innocent. My charge is to see beyond this limitation I have made and have made for my brother. I perceive guilt and so I perceive the walls of separation between us. But the body can move beyond that thought, it can be used as a device for me to communicate the sinlessness that truly exists from brother to brother, from us to God.

Excerpt from Lesson 294 in our Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages


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.
