W-58: Review of Lessons 36-40

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

light thru treesTingles of Truth send little thrills up the spine and warmth through the heart as I read these review lessons.

The theme is holiness and innocence; holiness and salvation; and holiness and Oneness.

“Seen through understanding eyes, the holiness of the world is all I see, for I can picture only the thoughts I hold about myself.”

There is no longer any interest in identifying as “me.”  The thoughts I hold about myself are Live Streaming from God; the person is the last to know and the first to go!  Seeing the best in people has nothing to do with their personalities; it is only about seeing through personality to the illumined presence within.

All rotten thoughts (and the resulting bad behavior) comes from fear.  Judging nothing and no one leave an open Mind and open Heart.  Being a conduit for holiness, love and blessings becomes the only response. “I am” blessed as a Son of God and consciousness re-merges in the Absolute.

LESSON 58

These ideas are for review today:

1.  (36)  My holiness envelops everything I see.

From my holiness does the perception of the real world come.  Having forgiven, I no longer see myself as guilty.  I can accept the innocence that is the truth about me.  Seen through understanding eyes, the holiness of the world is all I see, for I can picture only the thoughts I hold about myself.

2.  (37)  My holiness blesses the world.

The perception of my holiness does not bless me alone.  Everyone and everything I see in its light shares in the joy it brings to me.  There is nothing that is apart from this joy, because there is nothing that does not share my holiness.  As I recognize my holiness, so does the holiness of the world shine forth for everyone to see.

3.  (38)  There is nothing my holiness cannot do.

My holiness is unlimited in its power to heal, because it is unlimited in its power to save.  What is there to be saved from except illusions?  And what are all illusions except false ideas about myself?  My holiness undoes them all by asserting the truth about me.  In the presence of my holiness, which I share with God Himself, all idols vanish.

4.  (39)  My holiness is my salvation.

Since my holiness saves me from all guilt, recognizing my holiness is recognizing my salvation.  It is also recognizing the salvation of the world.  Once I have accepted my holiness, nothing can make me afraid.  And because I am unafraid, everyone must share in my understanding, which is the gift of God to me and to the world.

5.  (40)  I am blessed as a Son of God.

Herein lies my claim to all good and only good.  I am blessed as a Son of God.  All good things are mine, because God intended them for me.  I cannot suffer any loss or deprivation or pain because of Who I am.  My Father supports me, protects me, and directs me in all things.  His care for me is infinite, and is with me forever.  I am eternally blessed as His Son.
