ACIM Lesson 199: I am not a body, I am free.

As has been said many times, the body is a limitation. It’s only useful for a while. And when that time is up we merely lay it down like a suit of clothes and move on.

For the mind is not the body. If it chooses, it can have the unlimited freedom that the Holy Spirit offers.

Yet, it is my ego – the data, the memories – that hold the body dear. Without the body, the ego is nothing. The body is what the ego uses to convey its seeming importance to the rest of the world. What insanity!

Today I will make a break for freedom.

Whenever I start to over-identify with the body I will immediately repeat the key words of Ho’oponopono:

I love you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you.

… in order that I can return to my true I-Dentity, the Zero State, in tune with Divinity.

I am as God created me, Spirit, indestructible and pure and sinless, free of all illusions of the world. Amen.

“I am not a body, I am free. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank you”
