Lesson 177 Year 2020

Lesson 177

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.

(163) There is no death. The Son of God is free.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.

(164) Now are we one with Him Who is our Source.

God is but Love, and therefore so am I.


What does it mean that I am free of death? Does that mean I will live in the world of time and space and in this body forever? Well, no thank you! That would not feel like freedom to me and that is not what Jesus means. Death comes in many forms. Anger, frustration, hate, fear, guilt, and all forms of pain and suffering are some forms of death. Anything that is not perfect and whole, that is not peace and love, and that is not joyful is death. I want to be free of these.

Jesus does not say that someday there will be no death, nor does he say that someday I will be free. There is life existing right now and there is me in perfect freedom right now. There is life eternal right now. I only need to place my awareness there rather than on this death show I’m watching now. I can do this; I need only make a decision for it.

I am making that decision now. Every day is filled with opportunities to decide for life. Each time I notice a judgmental thought or I notice a fear-based action and then decide for God instead, I am choosing life. It used to feel like a chore to do this because I was not sure I wanted what God was offering. Then it became easier, and finally, I was doing it without even thinking. And at last, I am looking at my ego thoughts and releasing with eagerness and joy knowing that I truly want freedom.

I am living a more awakened life now. That is, I am living in freedom more than I ever have before. I am learning that I want to place my awareness on life and freedom rather than on this little self I made up. I am losing interest in the dramas and the comedies, the adventures, and the adrenal rushes that make up the death story of our lives. Been there, done that, don’t even want the t-shirt anymore.

All I am interested in is releasing the last dregs of the dream life so that I can fully embrace Life as I am meant to live it. I can do this because, now, right now, I am one with God Who is my Source. Right now, in this very moment, while I continue to dream of death, I am one with God and living in peace and joy and eternal bliss. That is where I want to place my awareness, on Life with my Father and all of my brothers.

How does one let go of the belief in death? Find a path out of the belief and stick to it. Study it, practice it, be vigilant for it.

Relax in it, letting faith and trust smooth your way through it. Question every thought discarding those that don’t reflect truth. Never judge yourself or others. Never allow guilt to enter into the process. Never give up.

Keep your mind open and receptive to a Higher Source. Quickly discard your own plans when that Source moves you to another better plan. Be surrendered to your Guide so that you can be easily moved.

Before you know it, you will become aware of your Self living you. Even if it is only briefly, it is enough to create a strong desire to allow awakening to that way of living. At least this has been my experience so far. It is not consistent yet but is becoming more consistent as I practice it.
