Let me not bind Your Son with laws I made.
“Your Son is free, my Father. Let me not imagine I have bound him with the laws I made to rule the body. He is not subject to any laws I made by which I try to make the body more secure. He is not changed by what is changeable. He is not slave to any laws of time. He is as You created him, because he knows no law except the law of love” (ACIM Lesson 277 1:1-6).
“He is not changed by what is changeable” (ACIM Lesson 277 1:4), those are simple and beautiful words spoken by our Guide of the Course. Our entire existence is without change, without limits, and without sin. It is even beyond what the human mind can even fathom as freedom. A lesson such as today, offers us the opportunity to truly open our minds to what lies beyond our known and unknown understanding. However, not in the manner of something new to “figure out,” rather something so true and expansive that it can only be experienced as it is shown to us. Are you ready to unchain yourself to find your true Self? Are you ready to be completely unhinged in what you know about the world and what you believe to be your existence? Are you ready to go beyond belief?
“He is not bound except by his beliefs. Yet what he is, is far beyond his faith in slavery or freedom” (ACIM Lesson 277 2:2-3)
True, it sounds like the Course is sending us on some sort of hallucinogenic experience. Perhaps so. Yet where we are being led is without the aid of anything outside ourselves. To get to where we are going, we need only follow the breath. We need only open our minds the presence of the Divine within that exists in this very moment. All we need do is ask and our Guide will point the way.
As we Walk in Miracles today, we recognize that we have been using our miracle status to limit ourselves. The power of God that lies within us can be used to experience a life of limitation or it can be used to explore this life from a place beyond belief and laws of bondage. Recall that one day, just 114 years ago, our belief was that, as humans, we could not fly. But today, our collective belief is that not only can we fly from America to New Zealand in one day but that we can venture into outer space and beyond. Do you see how it takes just one person, or brothers like Wilbur and Orville Wright, to shift such a powerful perception? It need not take much. It need not take long. It need only take your willingness and openness to go beyond. It need only take a shift in using your miracle status from limitation to that of unlimited potentiality.
“And he cannot be bound unless God’s truth can lie, and God can will that He deceive Himself” (ACIM Lesson 277 2:5).
Take time in silence and stillness. Review any limitations in your awareness throughout the day and ask your Guide(s) to show you what lies beyond what you see and what you believe. Be open to mystery. Be open to unleashing YOU. Namaste.
