Lesson 110

  • I Am As God Created Me
  • We will repeat today’s idea from time to time,
  • for this one thought would be enough to save you
  • and the world, if you believed that it is true.
  • Its truth would mean that you have made
  • no changes in yourself that have reality,
  • nor changed the universe so that what god created
  • was replaced by fear and evil, misery and death.
  • If you remain as god created you,
  • fear has no meaning, evil is not real,
  • and misery and death do not exist.
  • Today’s idea is therefore all you need to let complete correction
  • heal your mind, and give you perfect vision that will heal
  • all the mistakes that any mind has made at any time or place.
  • It is enough to heal the past and make the future free.
  • It is enough to let the present be accepted as it is.
  • It is enough to let time be the means for all the world to learn escape
  • from time, and every change that time appears to bring in passing by.
  • If you remain as god created you, appearances
  • cannot replace the truth, health cannot turn to sickness,
  • nor can death be substitute for life, or fear for love.
  • All this has not occurred, if you remain as god created you.
  • You need no thought but just this one, to let redemption
  • come to light the world and free it from the past.
  • In this one thought is all the past undone; the present saved
  • to quietly extend into a timeless future.
  • If you are as god created you, then there has been
  • no separation of your mind from his,
  • no split between your mind and other minds,
  • and only unity within your own.
  • The healing power of today’s idea is limitless.
  • It is the birthplace of all miracles, the great restorer of the truth
  • to the awareness of the world. Practice today’s idea with gratitude.
  • This is the truth that comes to set you free.
  • This is the truth that god has promised you.
  • This is the word in which all sorrow ends.
  • For your five-minute practice periods, begin with this quotation from the text:
  • I am as god created me.
  • His son can suffer nothing.
  • And I am his son.
  • Then, with this statement firmly in your mind,
  • try to discover in your mind the self
  • who is the holy son of god himself.
  • Seek him within you who is christ in you,
  • the son of god and brother to the world;
  • the savior who has been forever saved,
  • with power to save whoever touches him,
  • however lightly, asking for the word
  • that tells him he is brother unto him.
  • You are as god created you.
  • Today honor your self.
  • Let graven images you made to be
  • the son of god instead of what he is
  • be worshipped not today.
  • Deep in your mind the holy christ in you
  • is waiting your acknowledgement as you.
  • And you are lost and do not know yourself
  • while he is unacknowledged and unknown.
  • Seek him today and find him.
  • He will be your savior from
  • all idols you have made.
  • For when you find him, you will understand
  • how worthless are your idols and how false
  • the images which you believed were you.
  • Today we make a great advance to truth
  • by letting idols go and opening our hands
  • and hearts and minds to god today.
  • We will remember him throughout the day
  • with thankful hearts and loving thoughts
  • for all who meet with us today.
  • For it is thus that we remember him.
  • And we will say, that we may be reminded
  • of his son, our holy self, the christ in each of us:
  • I am as god created me.
  • Let us declare this truth as often as we can.
  • This is the word of god that sets you free.
  • This is the key that opens up the gate of heaven
  • and that lets you enter in the peace of god and his eternity.
