What is the Body?
Our special theme says, “You will identify with what you think will make you safe. Whatever it may be, you will believe that it is one with you.”
What do you believe makes you safe? Do you trust the mind that tells you how things should be and should not be? Are those judgments your guide to safety? Or do you trust life-awareness-presence, which simply is with whatever appears to be?
Please contemplate these questions today.
My sight goes forth to look upon Christ’s face.
It is common to believe that a person is not demonstrating Christ if s/he is rude and unhelpful. It is extremely common to believe that the person who shoots and kills several people is not demonstrating Christ.
How can we be expected to see Christ’s face in people like these when they clearly demonstrate the wrong mind instead of the Christ mind?
The answer lies in choosing the Loving All Method over the judging mind.
We each will see based on the mind we see through. If we see through the judging mind, we will see good and bad—things that seem Christ-like to us and things that don’t. However, if we see with life-awareness-presence, we see life-awareness-presence in everything, and that is Christ.
Notice that today’s lesson asks for our mistakes to be revealed. Anytime we do not see with the Loving All Method, a mistake in our mind is there to be revealed. That means that if we see something we feel we cannot love, accept or emotionally allow, we are in our wrong mind.
If you discover that you are in your wrong mind today, apply the Loving All Method to that. Love, accept or emotionally allow the fact that you have slipped into the wrong mind. That doesn’t mean that you should indulge the wrong mind. When you shift to the Loving All Method, you shift out of indulgence into the right mind’s perception of the mistake. It might feel like stepping back from the wrong mind without judging it. It might feel like resting and letting the wrong mind unwind or settle down. Although the wrong mind may remain present in awareness for a time after shifting to the Loving All Method, you should be able to feel a difference regarding your inner way of being with it.
