Lesson 214:

I am not a body. I am free.

For I am still as God created me…

I place the future in the Hands of God.

I am not a body. I am free.

For I am still as God created me…

We always hear, and maybe even say; now is all there is… Now is the only moment in which we can truly live. How real is that for us? Will we, this day, this moment, place the ‘future’ in the Hands of God? Apparently, it wasn’t ours to begin with. So what’s the beef? I know, in my own experience of this so-called life, that the very deference to timeline; past, now, future, places me in a position of impotence, ~now~. I can’t make a legitimate decision about what is and what I want to do with it, from the reference vantage of the past/now/future. Because, time and space are meant to be used in service of Spirit; which is only~ now. What I’ve seen, is that when I am attempting to make decisions based on what I have learned in the past, I am really attempting to not decide. I am attempting to not be accountable for right here, right now.

This is the way the ego mind likes it; use guilt from the past and threats and promises about the future, to seduce my mind in to relinquishing its decision making power. I know. I have fallen prey to its seductive antics; feared them, and believed them, and gave myself temporarily to their addictive pull…. It was nothing, in the end. It was death. Which too, turned out to be ‘nothing’...

“I am responsible for what I see.

I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the

goal I would achieve.

And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for,

And receive as I have asked”... (T-.21.11)

When I place my decision making in the service of Spirit; this present moment becomes fully alive for me, and all manner of resources seem to appear within my field of vision, which previously alluded me. Also, I am unconcerned about the so-called future; I know that no accident or chance is possible within the universe as God created it, ~outside of which is nothing. I decide for happiness, now; I give the power of decision to the Holy Spirit, Whom is consecrated by God to decide for God for me.

Yes… I place the future in the Hands of God, for in the now, I feel my Self; alive and creative:

I am not a body. I am free.

For I am still as God created me…

What God gives can only be for good. And I accept but what He gives as what belongs to me…
