Review VI Lesson 217
I Am Not a Body. I Am Free. For I Am Still as God Created me.
1. (197) It can be but my gratitude I earn.
Who should give thanks for my salvation but myself?
And how but through salvation can I find the Self to Whom my thanks are due?
I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me..

I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me. It can be but my gratitude I earn. Here is the second step to free our mind from the belief in outside force pitted against our own. We make attempts at kindness and forgiveness, then turn them to attack again unless we find external gratitude and lavish thanks. Our gratitude is all our gifts require, that they be lasting offerings of a thankful heart released from hell forever. It does not matter if another thinks our gifts unworthy. In his mind there is a part that joins with ours in thanking us. It does not matter if our gifts seem lost and ineffectual. They are received where they are given. In our gratitude are they excepted universally, and thankfully acknowledged by the heart of God Himself. God blesses every gift you give to Him, and every gift is given Him because it can be given only to yourself, and what belongs to God must be His Own. I pray for all my brothers and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination of The Way, The Truth, The Life, in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!
