Part II

5. What Is The Body?

Lesson 268

Let All Things Be Exactly As They Are.

Let me not be Your critic, Lord, today, and judge against You. Let me not attempt to interfere in Your creation and distort it into sickly forms. Let me be willing to withdraw my wishes from its unity, and thus to let it be as You created it.74. For thus will I be able, too, to recognize my Self as You created me. In love was I created, and in love will I remain forever. What can frighten me when I let all things be exactly as they are?

2. Let not our sight be blasphemous today, nor let our ears attend to lying tongues.75. Only reality is free of pain. Only reality is free of loss. Only reality is wholly safe. And it is only this we seek today.[1].

Footnote 74. These opening sentences clarify that the meaning of today’s idea is not to let all outer forms and events be exactly as they are. Rather, the forms and events of this world are the result of us playing God’s critic, distorting His creation “into sickly forms,” and imposing our wishes for separation onto its unity. The real meaning of today’s idea, then, is to let God’s creation (which is formless, timeless, and united) be exactly as it is; to let all things be exactly as they really are. This means acknowledging that the forms and events seen by our eyes do not really exist.

Footnote 75. To let “our sight be blasphemous” is to see external forms as real. To “let our ears attend to lying tongues” is to listen to the voices that tell us this world is real.

Personal Notes:

Let all things be exactly as they are. I meditate on above prayer today, and in quiet I wait to hear my Father’s Voice. 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!

God is Love

Love is God
