“FIELD WORK: FORGIVING THE BODY” is the topic for A Course in Miracles class Thursday, March 12, 7 p.m. at The Church Within. We will delve into why we made (make) the body and identify with it, and the unloving and loving uses to which we have put it.
T-24.IV.2. Of itself the body can do nothing. 11 See it as means to hurt, and it is hurt. 12 See it as means to heal, and it is healed. T-25.in.3 The body needs no healing. 2 But the mind that thinks it is a body is sick indeed! 3 And it is here that Christ sets forth the remedy. 4 His purpose folds the body in His light, and fills it with the Holiness that shines from Him. 5 And nothing that the body says or does but makes Him manifest. 6 To those who know Him not it carries Him in gentleness and love, to heal their minds.
Talking about the body in this way, detaching from it ever so slightly, is helpful in developing the Observer or Witness consciousness. Each of us is the ultimate expert in what it means to be/have a body, so whoever attends tomorrow night will be part of a panel of experts!
