Lesson 248 – Whatever suffers is not part of me.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

I’ve heard it said that those who die on an exhale, die peacefully, because they are letting go, not grasping.  Lesson 248 is one of my favorite lessons.  It tells me that there is nothing to grasp for, nothing to suffer over, nothing I don’t already have.  I disowned the truth for the fun of it.  The idea of separating from God was laughable and now I laugh!  This very laughter lets me be faithful in disowning falsity — what is not true is false.  Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists.  Herein lies the peace of God.  Holy moly!  Instant gratification 🙂


Whatever suffers is not part of me.

I have disowned the truth.  Now let me be as faithful in disowning falsity.  Whatever suffers is not part of me.  What grieves is not myself.  What is in pain is but illusion in my mind.  What dies was never living in reality, and did but mock the truth about myself.  Now I disown self-concepts and deceits and lies about the holy Son of God.  Now am I ready to accept him back as God created him, and as he is.

Father, my ancient love for You returns, and lets me love Your Son again as well.  Father, I am as You created me.  Now is Your Love remembered,  and my own.  Now do I understand that they are one.
