I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.
1. (187) I bless the world because I bless myself.
²God’s blessing shines upon me from within my heart, where He abides. ³I need but turn to Him, and every sorrow melts away, as I accept His boundless Love for me.
⁴I am not a body. ⁵I am free.
⁶For I am still as God created me.
It is important that I realize that I will resist turning to God if I still harbor fear and guilt in my mind, if I still hold grievances and judgments, and if I love my specialness and don’t want to let it go. This is why I do the work, the practices that are given to me in the lessons. I have discovered for myself that I am not being asked to sacrifice. On the contrary, I discovered that nothing I valued was worthy of me and none of it was bringing me peace and happiness. Letting it go was no sacrifice whatsoever.
This is always some form of choosing God over ego. Sometimes it looks one way and sometimes another, but in content, it is always the same. I might use the word forgive to mean the same thing. When I bring everything not perfect love to the Holy Spirit for correction, I am blessing myself and the world. I am forgiving myself and the world.
