Hi, I'm Gretchen, welcome to lesson 110. In A Course in Miracles, Today's concept is, I am, as spirit created me, I am as spirit created me, one of the most important things that we can gain from taking the time to go through this course is the complete understanding that we are the perfect manifestation of spirit. We are unique, individual souls created by and forever connected to spirit. There is nothing wrong with us. There is nothing that Spirit wanted to ever cause us pain, harm, doubt, fear, anguish, or any form of suffering in this life. Spirit does not have a master plan that involves us suffering. Spirit is about love. We're all supposed to be connected in love. We're all supposed to be happy and at peace, and will support and forgive each other and love each other and help each other. live our best and most authentic lives we each have a purpose and something to provide to others. We each are here to gain knowledge through our individual lives and our unique souls and share that with everyone else. I am a spirit created me there is nothing wrong with you. There is nothing that needs to be changed about you. You are perfect as you are, you have worth and value as you are. It is inherent in you. We lose sight of that, as soon as we believe we are somehow separate from spirit. And it is our purpose to somehow reconnect and gain you know favor with spirit and somehow be let into an inner circle. That is not how it works. That is part of the false narrative that we have been taught. We have never left spirit, we have never not been part of the circle. It is one huge circle where everyone is connected and remember there is nothing you have to do to gain favor, you are already blessed. You are already saved. You have already earned your place. I am as spirit created me. Another way to say that love yourself. Love spirits creation. Love yourself exactly who you are, how you are, why you are. Love yourself. I am as spirit created me. I want you to practice this idea today with thanks and blessings and gratitude. And the gratitude is just for having that miracle today. That miracle is that perception shift where you now step away from the belief that you are somehow flawed and damaged and separate from spirit. And instead, live your life and perceive yourself from love. Where you know that you are perfect. You are connected to Spirit you are that manifestation of Spirit you are that light and it is your uniqueness that brings your value to this world. So you must live authentically you must live as spirit created you. I want you to practice that today by simply taking time throughout your day to remind yourself I am a spirit created me. I'm not meant to suffer. I am a spirit created me I am not meant to suffer. That is your miracle for today. Believe it, receive it. Live it from this day forward. And that is how you become that light for everyone else. Celebrate yourself today and celebrate how far you've come in this course. We have now finished part three I will presume if you're listening to this, you've been following along on all of the prior lessons to this point. And I know you have to admit you have changed. You've changed there is no way you could not be changed by this point. And the changes are going to keep coming in the miracles are going to keep happening. Celebrate yourself today. Join us for the reviews starting tomorrow.
