What is the Body?
Well, You know, it’s what I am, isn’t it?
Well, no! Not hardly! Let’s discuss this now.
1 The body is a fence the Son of God imagines he has built to separate parts of his Self from other parts. Oh! Now You get it! The body was made to separate You from the Rest of You. Let Me let You sit with Your “Aha!” It is within this fence, he thinks he lives, to die as it decays and crumbles. For within this fence he thinks that he is safe from love. Is the body now a bit less appealing to You than if was before? Let’s go on and read some more. Identifying with his safety, he regards himself as what his safety is. How else could he be certain he remains within the body, keeping love outside? The importance of the body, then, is that it keeps You separated from all Your other Brothers. By the way, beyond the feel-good, this is the main appeal of sex, when two of You seem to join as one, then can part again.
2 The body will not stay. Proving You’re not stuck with it and can always get another. Yet this he sees as double safety. For the Son of God’s impermanence is “proof” his fences work and do the task his mind assigns to them. And it proves that He really has become a ‘human’. For if his oneness still remained untouched, who could attack and who could be attacked? Who could be victor? Who could be his prey? Who could be victim? Who the murderer? And if he did not die, what “proof” is there that God’s eternal Son can be destroyed? This is the bottom line You know: that the Son has somehow bested God by becoming something ‘human’; surely not Divine.
Yet none of His insane beliefs are real.
3 The body is a dream. Solid though it seems. Like other dreams, it sometimes seems to picture happiness but can quite suddenly revert to fear, where every dream is born. It looks without for its validation. Yet all Reality is but within Love’s mentality. The Mind that is the Truth comes straight from Love. For only love creates in truth, and truth can never fear. The body does oppose this Mind of Love. Made to be fearful, must the body serve the purpose given it. But we can change the purpose which the body will obey by changing what we think that it is for. In the world it also serves to identify, for one’s identity is wrapped up in the body. Not so God’s purpose.
4 The body is the means by which God’s Son returns to sanity. For Heaven meets and speaks to Him where He is; and where He thinks He is is in the body. Though it was made to fence him into hell without escape, yet has the goal of Heaven been exchanged for the pursuit of hell. It’s not that hard to do; just change direction. Instead of hell, make the choice for Heaven. The Son of God extends his hand to reach his brother and to help him walk along the road with him. Christ always walks with You and talks with You. Choose now to acknowledge Him and listen. Now is the body holy. Now it serves to heal the mind that it was made to kill. For it now will move at Mind’s direction.
5 You will identify with what you think will make you safe. Now is the time to learn what really does. Whatever it may be, you will believe that it is one with you. Make the choice for Truth. Your safety lies in truth and not in lies. Love is your safety. Love then is the Truth. Fear does not exist. For Love has come in and, so very gently, does dismiss it. Identify with love, and you are safe. Identify with love, and you are home. Identify with love, and find your Self.
For when You truly Love, You are real and safe and home, for Love is Reality. (That’s the bottom line!)
