I am Spirit.
Could this be said more plainly or more clearly? I don’t think so. Unequivocally it states the Truth of You and all the Universe: There is no so-called ‘matter’ for All is Consciousness.
The density You experience about Your body is simply Your desire for protection since the separation. Consciousness is but the substance of all things. This is why healing does not come from needles stuck in You or little pellets. For the problem did not incept with anything but consciousness.
To understand this will save You millions of fruitless so-called “lives’ with untold – yet unreal – pain and suffering.
1 Today’s idea identifies you with your One Self. It accepts no split identity, nor tries to weave opposing factors into unity. It simply states the truth. Practice this truth today as often as you can, for it will bring your mind from conflict to the quiet fields of peace. No chill of fear can enter, for your mind has been absolved from madness, letting go illusions of a split identity.
You’re not a combination of matter and Spirit – or “body, mind, and spirit” as the saying goes. You are neither split minded nor an amalgamated mix of different substances, for there’s only One: It is Spirit.
2 We state again the truth about your Self, the holy Son of God who rests in you, whose mind has been restored to sanity. You are the Spirit lovingly endowed with all your Father’s love and peace and joy. You are the Spirit which completes Himself and shares His function as Creator. He is with you always, as you are with Him.
God is Spirit, and You are His Extension and His Presence. What God is, You are.
3 Today we try to bring reality still closer to your mind. Each time you practice, awareness is brought a little nearer at least; sometimes a thousand years or more are saved. The minutes which you give are multiplied over and over, for the miracle makes use of time but is not ruled by it. Salvation is a miracle, the first and last; the first that is the last, for it is one.
Salvation is the realization of Who and What You are. It’s very simple. Truth is so simple and quite beautiful. Lies are complicated and quite ugly. Truth is what You wish to be, and lies are what You think You are.
4 You are the Spirit in whose mind abides the miracle in which all time stands still; the miracle in which a minute spent in using these ideas becomes a time which has no length and which has no end. Give, then, these minutes willingly, and count on Him Who promised to lay timelessness beside them. He will offer all His strength to every little effort which you make.
You are Spirit, and at Home in Eternity, not in ‘time’, for there’s no such thing! One is Real, the other a sad, twisted imagination, or it’s better said: amalgamation.
5 Give Him the minutes which He needs today to help you understand with Him you are the Spirit that abides in Him, and Which calls through His Voice to every living thing; offers His sight to everyone who asks; replaces error with the simple truth.
Again, You are the Living Presence of the Father; eternal just as God is. This is what I came – and it’s why I have remained – to teach You.
6The Holy Spirit will be glad to take five minutes of each hour from your hands and carry them around this aching world, where pain and misery appear to rule. He will not overlook one open mind that will accept the healing gift they bring, and He will lay them everywhere He knows they will be welcome. And they will increase in healing power each time someone accepts them as his thoughts and uses them to heal.
Since minds are joined, Your Gift of willingness to learn of God’s and Your Reality does bless Every One who is willing too.
7 Thus will your gift to Him be multiplied a thousand-fold and tens of thousands more. And when it is returned to you, it will surpass in might the little gift you gave as much as does the radiance of the sun outshine the tiny gleam a firefly makes an uncertain moment, and goes out. Yet will the steady brilliance of this light remain and lead you out of darkness, nor will you be able to forget the way again.
Willingness may seem a little gift, and yet You see that it is crucial. And, therefore, well rewarded.
8 Begin these happy exercises with the words the Holy Spirit speaks to you, and let them echo round the world through Him:
9 Spirit am I, a holy Son of God,
free of all limits, safe and healed and whole,
free to forgive, and free to save the world.
For Spirit is quite invulnerable.
10 Expressed through you, the Holy Spirit will accept this gift which you received of Him, increase its power, and give it back to you.
The revelation of Who and What You really are by the Holy Spirit can and does transform the world right back to Heaven.
11 Offer each practice period today gladly to Him. And He will speak to you, reminding you that you are Spirit, one with Him and God, your brothers and your Self.
You cannot yet imagine the happiness of the experience of Oneness, yet will You know it again, as if You had never wandered the world so lost and alone, and yet not really. For I have always been with You, and God is closer than the breathing of Your troubled dreaming.
I keep My promise. Never will I leave You nor forsake You.
Listen for His assurance every time you speak the words He offers you today, and let Him tell your mind that they are true.
The great joys of Spirit do await You.
12 Use them against temptation, and escape its sorry consequences if you yield to the belief that you are something else. The Holy Spirit gives you peace today. Receive His words, and offer them to Him.
Realize that the Giver of Your Peace today – and every day throughout forever – is just nothing else but Your Right Mind, the Holy Spirit. I am the open door through which You may unite with Who and What You really are.
Come, Your joyous Sanity awaits You.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
