The Fellowship of Awakening- July 24, 2013
Teachers of God,
We are in the last review of the blocks of our foundation. I am not a body I am free! And we re-visit the last 20 Lessons!In the last review we had two at a time in review as well as the review before that and the review before that and the review before that. The first review visited five lessons at a time. Then we go through four more reviews at two a day....to arrive at a day by day repeat of the final 20 lessons.....so these lessons we look at for two days a piece. More than any other group of lessons. We're asked to think about them with the notion that we are not bodies we are free. What does that mean in the context of the Big 20?
I trust my brothers, who are one with me.
I will be still an instant and go home.
I call upon God's Name and on my own.
The Name of God is my inheritance.
I want the peace of God.
Salvation of the world depends on me.
I bless the world because I bless myself.
The peace of God is shining in me now.
I feel the Love of God within me now.
I choose the joy of God instead of pain.
I am the holy Son of God Himself.
I have a function God would have me fill.
All things are lessons God would have me learn.
I place the future in the Hands of God.
Love is the way I walk in gratitude.
It can be but myself I crucify.
It can be but my gratitude I earn.
Only my condemnation injures me.
I am not a body, I am free.
There is no peace except the peace of God.
These lessons are leading us to our own peace. What I want is the peace of God. It is shining within us now. It is our home. I cannot have it without you so I give it away freely. The lessons I learn in this body are those that allow me to give it away with gratitude. I am not a body. I am gratitude, salvation, peace and joy and I bless all others! Long live the Father! Long live the Son! My future is secure in function God would have me fill. I sow the seeds of love to expand the Queendom!
How's your summer? It's been rather hot, right? Is everyone okay? All this talk of the body! Well, we'll be looking at Chapter 18 this week: The Passing of the Dream. We'll be talking about a much quoted aspect of the course 'The Happy Dream'. Do you know what your waking and sleeping perceptions have in common? YOU! The Course refers to your sleeping dreams as a 'perceptual temper tantrums' . Kinda flows with Freud and Jung and what most of us understand about the unconscious or subconscious. How well do we tolerate reality, which we do not create? Or I could say 'How much Joy can you stand?' Do we choose the Joy of God over pain? Dreams really show us that we are creating our own experiences. The waking portion of our lives is no different.

Explanation of Images:
The dreams we have when we are sleeping are created by the same person that is creating the waking world. We know we make up our dreams and have complete control over them. Do we we take responsibility for the waking world?
