I love, love, love today’s workbook lesson. It is so simple and clear! Yet, I don’t think I saw it that way the first time I did the Course in Miracles Workbook. I don’t think I knew what it talked about then when it said, “Who is the doubter? … He has accepted [truth] because he lives; has judged against it and denied its worth, and has decided that he does not know the only certainty by which he lives.”
Complicated minds can deny the simple obvious truth. What’s the truth?
You are life!
How do you know you are life? Because you live.
It’s that simple. Everything else is a complication.
Let’s embrace simplicity today. No matter what happens in your day today, keep turning attention to the fact that you are life.
Angry? Okay, but still life.
Sad? Okay, but still life.
Frustrated? Okay, but still life.
Laughing? Okay, but still life.
Scared? Okay, but still life.
Feeling devotional? Okay, but still life.
Stressed? Okay, but still life.
Feeling guilty? Okay, but still life.
Sick? Okay, but still life.
Full of energy? Okay, but still life.
Happy? Okay, but still life.
If you look, you will notice the one thing you can never honestly deny is that you live. When you look even closer, you will notice the one fact that is obvious: You are life.
Have you ever experienced death as a direct experience? Sure, people and pets you loved died and you perceived that, but what was your direct experience as you perceived it? Wasn’t it life that perceived the concept/perception of death?
Do you have any proof of death as a direct experience?
Or is life the only thing that you can verify as a fact?
Look carefully. Forget ideas. What do you know from direct experience?
“Here is the end of choice. For here we come to a decision to accept ourselves as God created us. … For what is life except to be yourself, …?”
“Today accept Atonement, not to change reality, but merely to accept the truth about yourself, and go your way rejoicing in the endless Love of God.” Celebrate today that You Are Life!!
You are life! And you know it, because you live.
