What Am I?
Although our final special theme did not directly answer the question, “What am I?” it has given us some final thoughts to contemplate before A Course in Miracles Workbook for Students comes to an end.
We were given these words to contemplate as pointers to what we are:
- Complete and healed and whole
- Guaranteed eternal life
- Love perfected, fear impossible, and joy established without opposite
- The holy home of God Himself
- Sinlessness Itself
We were also told:
The truth of what we are is not for words to speak of nor describe. Yet we can realize our function here, and words can speak of this and teach it, too, if we exemplify the words in us. …
And thus our minds are changed about the aim for which we came, and which we seek to serve.
As the workbook nears its end, we are left with a decision to make. Do we want to practice our function here to the best of our ability so we can prepare ourselves for the final awakening, which is the realization that answers the question, “What am I?”
How committed are we to discovering the answer to the workbook’s final question?
God’s answer is some form of peace. All pain is healed; all misery replaced with joy. All prison doors are opened. And all sin is understood as merely a mistake.
