Father, I made an image of myself, and it is this I call the Son of God. Yet is creation as it always was, for Your creation is unchangeable. Let me not worship idols. I am he my Father loves. My holiness remains the light of Heaven and the Love of God. Is not what is beloved of You secure? Is not the light of Heaven infinite? Is not Your Son my true Identity, when You created everything that is?
The lessons now are such beautiful prayers, they immediately lift you out of every trial and tribulation. The recognition that you made an image of yourself is the recognition that you have believed that you were separate from God, and from that idea sprung the whole world you see.
The world you see has nothing to do with reality. It is of your own making, and it does not exist.
This is directly from lesson 14 in A Course In Miracles, so very early on Jesus directs you to the fact that you are dreaming and that you can awaken. Nothing in reality was affected by your mistake about your self and about the world. Creation is as it always was. Truth is true and nothing else is true. Thank God for that, because if you could change truth you would be lost forever. Instead, your holiness remains untouched by anything that you have made up and you are secure in the Love of God. And from this prayer, which directs you to your holiness and your reality as created by God, you step out into the world and give your love and light away. This happens purely by your recognition of Who you are, through your extension of the Love of God. It’s not necessarily in words, though it may be, it doesn’t have anything to do with the body, although it may happen through a smile or touch, it happens simply by being Who you are: as God created you. It’s undefined, it happens here and now, and it is miraculous.
Now are we One in shared Identity, with God our Father as our only Source, and everything created part of us. And so we offer blessing to all things, uniting lovingly with all the world, which our forgiveness has made one with us.
