BEYOND THE BODY, THE SUN AND THE STARS

BEYOND THE BODY, THE SUN AND THE STARS

(Based on a passage from the course in Miracles)

 

Beyond the body, beyond the sun and stars, past everything you see

and yet somehow familiar, is an arc of golden light

 

and it is the most beautiful thing that you have ever seen..

 

that stretches as you look into a great and shining circle. And all the circle

fills with light before your eyes.

 

A light full of wonder, of all the flowers, all the smiles of children, all the highest music and poetry…

 

Then this circle expands into a perfect sphere, immense, immense, full of Divine Love, and it is the most beautiful thing that you have ever seen… one feel like crying with joy that something so marvelous exists, that there is not only this world full of suffering, violence, wars, misery and superficiality

 

but there is something so wonderful as this sphere of pure light;

we would never stop contemplating it in wonder…

 

The edges…disappear, and what is in it is no longer contained at all. The light expands and covers everything, extending to infinity forever shining

and with no break or limit anywhere.

 

Within it everything is joined in perfect continuity. Nor is it possible to imagine that anything could be outside,

 

for there is nowhere that this light is not.

 

And in this infinite ocean of light you now realize that beyond the thin veil of agitations of our surface being

you have always been loved,

you are loved now

and will always been loved.

Beyond the veil of the human mind

you have always been in a state of deep peace, are in peace now

and will always be.

Then the realization is bound to arise that in reality It is not that you are IN this sea of light but that

YOU ARE THIS LIGHT

This light is your original nature,

is what you really ARE.

Then all is accomplished.
