“What you think you are is a belief to be undone. But what you really are must be revealed to you. The belief you are a body calls for correction, being a mistake. The truth of what you are calls on the strength in you to bring to your awareness what the mistake conceals.”
I attended a wedding shower over the weekend and was reminded by some friends, that the book “A Course In Miracles, ACIM” is a powerful tool of awareness. The quote above comes from lesson 91 in the book titled, “Miracles are seen in the light.” It continues: ” Miracles are seen in the light. The body’s eyes do not perceive the light. But I am not a body. What am I?”
Good question right? I seemed to be all kinds of things depending on the situation I find myself living in. I bounce back and forth on the tennis court of my emotions trying to discover what I really am. I have faith that I am something other than a body filled with crazy thoughts, but I can’t pull myself out of the daily routine of being hit over the net of illusions with distorted rackets of achievement. It appears I need something solid to put my faith in so I can escape my body and find my true strength. I do have the ability to see light without my physical eyes if I make the effort. The responsibility for finding the answers is within me; the strength that makes all miracles is within my reach and is waiting for my discovery.
When I instruct myself that I am not just a body, faith goes to what I want and my mind follows accordingly. My will is my teacher and it has all the strength to do what it desires. I can escape my body if I choose to do so, and I begin to experience the strength within me.
