"My true Identity abides in You." (ACIM Lesson 283)

"My True Identity abides in You."

Today's lesson from A Course in Miracles is a direct call to the truth of our situation, as we really are.

According to Eastern nondual systems, such as Vedanta, and Kashmiri Shaivism, our very being "I" (or that which is aware of these words) is in fact, no different from divinity. The "Son of God" referred to in ACIM makes use of this concept. A "Son of God" is purely an extention of God Itself, and one and the same in identity.

"The Son of God is part of the Holy Trinity, but the Trinity Itself is One. 5 There is no confusion within Its Levels, because They are of one Mind and one Will. 6 This single purpose creates perfect integration and establishes the peace of God. 7 Yet this vision can be perceived only by the truly innocent." (ACIM T-3.II.5)

One simple and direct way of approaching this lesson (283) is to address the "You" of divinity as simply that which is aware of the 'doer' of the lesson. The Self or "I" which is always present as our true self. After repeating today's idea, and simply resting in the presence of our own beingness (in which the body-mind appear), we can directly know our true Identity, which encompasses all the other little identities and forms we mistakenly assigned as ourselves.

Here's to our one, united Identity. May we come to know this today.
