What is the Christ?
Our special theme says, “Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home in God alone, does Christ remain at peace within the Heaven of your holy mind. This is the only part of you that has reality in truth. The rest is dreams. Yet will these dreams be given unto Christ, to fade before His glory and reveal your holy Self, the Christ, to you at last.”
A dream is defined as “a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep.”
In today’s excerpt from our special theme, “dream” is an analogy. Certainly, we are not in the human sleep state as we walk about in our daily lives. However, we are still living a dream when we believe we are affected by the “series of thoughts, images and sensations” experienced throughout the day. We are not affected by thoughts, images and sensations, because we are untouched consciousness, the witness of the human experience.
Today, continue to check in with your untouched present nature. Continue to notice that it is more intimately you than anything else you might call you.
God’s healing Voice protects all things today.
Healing is awakening to our true nature.
Today’s lesson says, “Let us today attend the Voice for God, which speaks an ancient lesson, no more true today than any other day.”
What is true today that has also been true on every other day?
Do not look to your mind for the answer to this question. Look to your consistent nature. It is here, present now and “no more true today than any other day. … It is in this that all things are protected.”
The prayer from today’s lesson is:
Your healing Voice protects all things today, and so I leave all things to You. I need be anxious over nothing. For Your Voice will tell me what to do and where to go; to whom to speak and what to say to him, what thoughts to think, what words to give the world. The safety that I bring is given me. Father, Your Voice protects all things through me.
The best way to live this prayer today is to stay focused on our untouched nature. Let the world be as it is. Ask for nothing from the world, and practice surrender as it is taught in The Teachings of Inner Ramana.
