When we surrender to God, we let go of the laws we make. Every day that we say what we can't do or be, what we will have or not have, who we will forgive or not forgive, in thought, word or action, we make little laws of our own. In this lesson, we surrender our will and our words to God and to his holy son. Now, without failing little laws we created, we live under the law of love.
Let me not bind Your Son with laws I made.
Your Son is free, my Father. Let me not imagine I have bound him with the laws I made to rule the body. He is not subject to any laws I made by which I try to make the body more secure. He is not changed by what is changeable. He is not slave to any laws of time. He is as You created him, because he knows no law except the law of love.
Let us not worship idols, nor believe in any law idolatry would make to hide the freedom of the Son of God. He is not bound except by his beliefs. Yet what he is, is far beyond his faith in slavery or freedom. He is free because he is his Father's Son. And he cannot be bound unless God's truth can lie, and God can will that He deceive Himself.
Quote of the Day
"A spiritual path is not home; it is a road home. Home is within us, and every moment we are choosing to rest there, or to fight the experience. Our real terror, says the Course, is of redemption."
