The Fellowship of Awakening June 24, 2015
Teachers of God!
We're on our 2nd the last review! We've almost half way done. Did you know that on July 1st we're halfway there? There are only 291 Original lessons in ACIM. The one you say the most is I am not a body, I am free; I am still as God created me. And we learn about the Holy Instant.
So what do bodies have to do with this present moment. Well, we tend to treat people as the appear as bodies. We evaluate their learning devices and decide how to treat them. We don't treat them or ourselves as we truly are, innocent, loving and wholly lovable. What are the benefits of doing this? Are there any tricks to seeing others differently? What's the motivation? What do have to let go of to do that? If we help from others, and we need their collaboration in what we're trying to accomplish in this world together, we need to learn to communicate effectively and accurately. We cannot do that if we see and interact only with bodies.

Explanation of Images: We live in a world of bodies. Bodies of Ocean. Bodies of birds, insects and people. They seem to be all different, distinct and separate from one another. They are each an expression of the oneness. We must become willing to see more than bodies, physical expressions, but engage with the truth in others. Communication is how we do that, we open our hearts and minds to the presence of wholeness, beauty and truth. We can see limits and expressions of littleness or we can reflect love and allowing. The body is a means not an end. It’s a teacher not a trophy or object of pleasure. Our brothers have so much to teach us if we can learn to see each other as we are and not as we wish we were.
