When Jesus speaks about his time as a man in a body he talks of becoming so identified with the Christ, that he no longer saw himself or anyone else as a body. The fact is that once you awaken will realize that there are no “other” bodies. The paradox is that there’s only one and yet you cannot get out of your dream of sickness, pain and death without your brother.
“Before your brother’s holiness the world is still, and peace descends on it in gentleness and blessing so complete, that not one trace of conflict still remains to haunt you in the darkness of the night. He is your Savior from the dreams of terror. He is the healing of your sense of sacrifice, and fear that what you have will scatter with the wind, and turn to dust. In him is your assurance God is here, and with you now. While he is what he is, you can be sure that God is knowable, and WILL be known to you. For He could never leave His own creation. And the sign that this is so lies in your brother, offered you that all your doubts about yourself may disappear before his holiness.”
A Course In Miracles, unlike anything I have ever read, speaks to me very reasonably and offers me instructions, when simply followed, lead me to a peace I have never had and thought impossible. Yet the Light has come into my dream and I have become that. As I allow my attention to be brought to what really matters in my life I feel the body of Christ become manifest.
My brother, you are precious. Our Father wills you be at peace. Awaken and return, for the little life you value so much that you would kill and die for is but an instant, in time, of a memory already gone.
“You who believe it easier to see your brother’s body than his holiness, be sure you understand what made this judgment. Here is the voice of specialness heard clearly, judging AGAINST the Christ, and setting forth for YOU, the purpose that you CAN attain, and what you can NOT do. Forget not that this judgment MUST apply to what you do with IT as your ally. For what you do through Christ it does not know. To Him, this judgment makes no sense at all, for ONLY what His Father wills is possible, and there IS no alternative for Him to see. Out of His LACK of conflict comes your peace. And from His purpose comes the means for effortless accomplishment and rest.”
