3-2-15 Lesson 61 Laurie’s Reflections

Monday, March 2, 2015

Lesson 61: “I am the light of the world.”

This lesson tells us point blank that we are the light of the world.   This is the most amazing way that we can live because it makes us who we are.  The ego tends to believe that thinking that we are something like the light of the world or the bringers of salvation is believing arrogantly.  The ego is quick to bring us down and say we are blasphemous and are acting against God because only God is good.  Thus, if we believe we are something as extraordinary as the saviors of the world, we are simply making up big falsehoods that we can never live up to.

The ego thinks debasement is the appropriate way to be humble.

When we know that we are the light of the world, it isn’t the ego’s insane gushing.  The ego thinks putting ourselves down is the way to find the favor of God.  But the Course teaches us that we are in fact the light of the world because God stated such.  God says that we can rest in the peace of knowing that this identity shared with God is our true nature.

This is why we don’t have to assume the way of acting out the ego’s humbleness and grandiosity  (both of which are belief that our worth is little) is only a dead end with no truth.  These are incorrect ways to perceive ourselves.  We are asked to know that when God deems us the light of the world, we just buy it because this is the plan to get to get us to the correct feeling of certainty. This is the feeling beneath God’s grandeur.
