Review VI, Lesson 209 - July 28
"I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me."
(189) "I feel the Love of God within me now."
See Review VI practice instructions.
I was created by the Love of God (1:2). Creating and loving are the same
(see T-7.I.3:3). Love, by its nature, extends outward and creates more of
Itself, creates like Itself. "God created you by extending Himself as you"
(T-7.I.5:2). "Think you that you can judge the Self of God? God has created
It beyond judgment, out of His need to extend His Love" (T-15.V.11:1-2). Our
Self was created out of the need of Love to extend Itself. We are the
natural result of Love's extension.
Therefore, we are that Love, extended. What I am is Love; Love is what I am.
It is everything I am. There is no part of me that is not Love. I am wholly
Love. That in me which seems to be something else--which may seem this
morning to feel fearful, or depressed, or dull, or lifeless, or angry, or
spiteful--is only illusion, a figment of my imagination. It is not real. It
is not me. I am only Love, and therefore I teach only Love.
I am Love's Son, by Love's own proclamation (1:4). I am made in the image
and likeness of Love. I cannot be anything other than loving, nor have I
ever been anything other than loving. When I have believed I was something
else, I was only dreaming. I am not a body, obsessed with self-preservation.
I am free to love, and free to love freely. "God will never cease to love
His Son, and His Son will never cease to love Him" (T-10.V.10:6).
"The Love of God within me sets me free" (1:5). It is connecting with that
Love within myself that liberates me from my self-imposed bondage. It is
accepting this Love <as> myself that frees me from guilt. It is allowing
that Love to flow through me that frees me from sorrow and fills me with
joy. Love is my liberator.
Let me accept today that the Love of God is in me. Let me <feel> Its
presence. Let me be glad that Love is what I am. All the little things that
seem to trouble me, that seem to tell me I am less than Love, or that anyone
is less than Love, fade into nothing as I open my heart to Love.
