Topic: Illusions – of Death and Dying
Teaching: Awakenings: Illusions – of Death and Dying
Host: Larry Seyer
Class: http://www.acimgather.org
Copyright: © A Course in Miracles
Workbook Topics Discussed:

Today we will review these ideas:

[75] "The light has come."

In choosing salvation rather than attack, I merely choose to recognize what is already here. Salvation is a decision made already. Attack and grievances are not there to choose. That is why I always choose between truth and illusion; between what is there and what is not. The light has come. I can but choose the light, for it has no alternative. It has replaced the darkness, and the dark has gone.
These would prove useful forms for specific applications of this idea:

"This cannot show me darkness, for the light has come."
"The light in you is all that I would see, [name]."
"I would see in this only what is there."

[76] "I am under no laws but God's."

Here is the perfect statement of my freedom. I am under no laws but God's. I am constantly tempted to make up other laws and give them power over me. I suffer only because of my belief in them. They have no real effect on me at all. I am perfectly free of the effects of all laws save God's. And His are the laws of freedom.
For specific forms in applying this idea, these would be useful:

"My perception of this shows me I believe in laws which do not exist."
"I see only the laws of God at work in this."
"Let me allow God's laws to work in this, and not my own."

Text Topics Discussed:

This morning we discuss the illusion of the world we think we live in.

It seems so real to us – birth, death, thinking, doing, sorting, making decisions.

But all of this is illusion and keeps us from remembering the Truth – we are safe at home with our Father.

It is easy to make up stories and believe in them for a little while. But today, let's not waste any more time in fairy tales.

Let us Awaken!

We review a review today from ACIM Lesson 88 which is a review of lessons 75 and 76 from the workbook of A Course in Miracles:

"The light has come" and "I am under no laws but God's"

As with every workbook lesson in ACIM, the holographic message is contained in each and every lesson – our release from the prison we have made awaits only our acceptance of our reality.

Music used to demonstrate these ideas is from Shawn Lane – someone who in the world's view has since 'passed on'.

But the Truth is, he was never here. And he's not here now – neither are we. Or more appropriately, "I'm not a body, I am free as God created me".

The song 'Illusions' by Shawn has been playing in my mind over the last few days… it is a gentle reminder that I am safe at home merely dreaming of exile – and there is no will but God's. He wills me to be One with Him – as I Am!

Today marks the first day for sharing these teachings on David Wilcock's Divine Cosmos site.

They are located in a new area entitled "Larry's Corner of the Cosmos" – or more simply "Larry's Corner".

For those of you who are joining us for the first time today, welcome!

There are several ways to participate. You can listen 'live' each Tuesday morning in the ACIM Gather room of PalTalk, or you can download the recording from either my website and starting today on Divine Cosmos in "Larry's Corner".
