Day 41 Urtext ACIM pg. 33 For a little while, the physical IS the form of expression. Enjoy it!

Please bring a prayer and the Holy Spirit with you. Text is bold type, my comments have asterisk.

The love of God, for a little while, must still be expressed through one body to another.

*Hear this, please! While not needing the body may be the ultimate, it will be a very long time before that will be a full reality and we will be led there bit by bit by the Holy Spirit. It need not be a traumatic thing. And I believe that it will be thousands or maybe even millions of years in humanities time reference.

*The purpose of the physical was to show that Christ could suffer and die for leaving God. Once all understand this we will recognize our part in Him and not need the body to attack. God, the Father of Christ, gave us the Holy Ghost/Spirit that we might use the body to remind Christ of His Father’s Love, Loyalty, and Affection.

*And while we still have bodies we will still have the challenges and joys of such things as food and sex and that which we believe in. I am not at all suggesting here that we go all the way and defy our bodies by ignoring these things. The Spirit will lead us, over time, to greater understandings. What I am so passionate about is relieving the concept of suffering that humanity has. Remember; time was given to humanity by the Father of Christ to bless us, not to frighten or demean us.

*This is very significant to me at this time. There are a lot of things that we will not need in our eternal existence. Sex, food, bathroom, being a few of them. Even with an understanding or at least a glimpse of what our true being is, we are still in this world while in the physical.

*Perhaps it is not so much that we must change our behaviors so drastically right now, but that we want to change our attitude or perception of them at this stage of the game. I am beginning to see that what we have here in time and physical is a symbolic reflection or shadow if you will, of our true being.

*For instance, food may be looked at as relating the concept that we are fully dependent one upon the other and not so “isolated” as we sometimes think or pretend to be. Sex and its reproductive abilities allow us to recognize that we are not solo either. We create who, what, and how we are in a joint effort; as well as expanding our being continually.

The love of God, for a little while, must still be expressed through one body to another. (Repeated because I had gotten so wordy in my reflections.) That is because the real vision is still so dim.

*The real vision of what we truly are; the united being of Christ, the Son of God.

Everyone can use his body best by enlarging man’s perception, so he can see the real VISION.

*By remembering that we are the Christ and accepting the Atonement.

THIS VISION is invisible to the physical eye.

*It is a witness of the Holy Spirit that we are the Christ. It is a gift of faith.

The ultimate purpose of the body is to render itself unnecessary.

*That statement is so threatening to the ego because it believes that it means annihilation. It does not understand, as yet, that its beliefs were formed for the benefit of Christ to be able to come out of the false belief that He had separated from God.

*The other thing that the ego does not understand intrinsically, is that nothing that God creates has an end. This includes the ego, meaning your conscious identity, which you have with or without a body. It may need to be allowed to gain a different perspective, but it will not be destroyed because that is not in the will of God.

Learning to do this is the only real reason for its creation.

*Imagine. Learning to let go of its being is the reason it is. Here is the catch though, that humanity has such a hard time understanding. The body is only a type of costume that the Son was allowed to assume to carry out His thoughts of separation from God and the restoration in the Atonement. It was never real. It has no definitive part in creation, it was a tool, like the pencil Jesus spoke of earlier in the text.

*And fear not, as long as you desire a body, you will be given one because that is how generous and understanding the Father of Christ is.

*My sincere apologies to those who saw my last post before I updated it. I put that last quote from this text into the title. (I had meant to put these two together, but it got long.) A bad call on my part to put it in the title anyway. As I stated, it is so frightening to the ego. And understandably so at this time. God will not lead us into fear.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste
