Teachers of God,
One more day to complete the cornerstones. Then we're going to seal them in with mortar and finish the foundation for the Altar of our Heart. The final cornerstones can be quite beautiful and hint at the second half of the year where we study more about who we are than who we aren't. So lets bask in these first 50 days and let this good news wash over us. It's about to be Chinese New Year: Wood Goat!
43. God is my Source. I cannot see apart from him.
44. God is the Light in which I see.
45. God is the Mind in which I think.
46. God is the Love in which I forgive.
47. God is the Strength in which I trust.
48. There is nothing to fear.
49. God's Voice speaks to me all through the day.
50. I am sustained by the Love of God.
I am grateful that God breaths me and fires my heart to beat. I have my source in the Creator and am glad. I cannot know myself or anything else without this source of all love and awareness. God shares her light with me and through me to the world revealing truth, beauty and knowledge. I use my natural abilities to play with others and co-create expansive joy in this space. I forgive easily because I trust the strength and knowledge that tells me all is well is working together for my good. I do not believe the fear that believes we are alone. God's voice is all around me assuring me I am safe and whole. I pray unceasingly letting Her voice direct my abilities at all times. I am buoyed up by my Creator. I don't worry about my breath or my heartbeat and I don't worry about my place in the world or in the mind of God.
We're starting Chapter 6 tonight. It's called "The Lessons of Love" and we'll be looking at section called "The Only Answer". Who we are is a major question that we must begin to answer for ourselves. When we're young the adults ask us who we want to be. Knowing how to express this being is the journey of a Course In Miracles. We are not our abilities and talents, but we're here to explore, expand and share who are through those skills. We are going to develop ourselves to fully express our talents through love or through fear. Essentially we're going to be choosing who to listen to and who to believe: either the voice that separates, or the Voice for God. The fork in the road is that question: Who am I?

Explanation of Images: “Who am I.” is a question that we have all asked ourselves. How we answer this question shapes our experience of life. The ego, our belief in lack and smallness, has one answer: Alone. The Holy Spirit, the Mind you share with God, has one answer: Family. We have talents, passions and abilities that are in service to our fear or our joy. The Holy Spirit is here to teach us how to live as the Holy Children of Holy Parents. The ego tries to convince us that we are it’s student, and our Holy Minds, the engine of our existence, is in service to it: meaning keep the body in pleasure and comfort. The two goals are not compatible. You actually know how to be you, no teacher is needed. The Holy Spirit, the way-shower, knows this and helps us express who we are.
