What keeps us from inner peace is very simply not realizing or accepting our true identity. If I am ONE with everything what is my problem? What grievance or problem could upset me?
You are Spirit, ageless, formless, timeless, eternal, completely, invulnerable, healed, whole and One with Source. Spirit is eternal, can never die and cannot be threatened. Find that within yourself for happiness.
We are convinced however that we are our bodies and live in the world of form and base our beliefs on what can be seen with the eyes. Are we born only to ultimately have the same destiny: death? We need to ask: Would a loving God or Creator design such a thing? Are we born only to die? What if it is a trick or a dream as the Course and the mystics tell us?
Peace descends upon a frantic mind when we gradually and gently let go of our ego identity and its thoughts of separation that continually convince us that we have certain needs, certain DNA, subject to germs, illnesses, and have a particular birth identity, sexual orientation and belong to a specific ethnic group.
Yes, YOU, as Spirit do inhabit a body that you take care of, but your true Self is still Spirit. We come into the body to learn lessons the Soul needs to learn. We don’t know why we get the “script” we got but just accept it. It is your classroom and the body is the vehicle for learning the lessons for the soul’s growth. Regardless of the lessons, we all have the same identity: Sprit!
But what happens when the body dies? It is gently laid down, thanked for its usefulness and our true identity as Spirit continues. There is no death ever. It is impossible to leave the Source of Creation.
When we look at the logic, the only sane thing to do is to change our Mind and our Identity from body to Spirit! I can choose to be Happy and forgive everything, as I learn my lessons no matter what they are!
Happiness will Spring into your Mind when you remember your true Identity! God Is!
