...I am Beautiful follows: Definition of A Course In Miracles
How do you feel about saying:
I am beautiful.
Does it feel good?
Does it feel arrogant?
Are you willing to know that you are beautiful?
The inspirational poem below conveys much of what I see as the key message of A Course In Miracles (ACIM).
Over and over again, ACIM emphasises our innocence and our right relationship with God.
God says, “You are beautiful.”
God says, “Do you think I am a liar then?”
God says, “Do you think I am mistaken then?”
God says, “Do you think you know yourself better than I know you?”
God says, “Do you think I created something ugly and bad when I created you?”
God says, “Do you think you are more powerful than me? Perhaps I create you beautiful, but you change yourself?”
God says, “When you look at it, what you think about me is insulting.
God says, “Do you listen to other people more than you listen to me?”
God says, “You are beautiful.”
And I know God is telling me something I really don’t want to know.
I reply, saying,
God holds me in His love and lets me cry.
To accept yourself as God created you cannot be arrogance, because it is the denial of arrogance.
To accept your littleness is arrogant, because it means that you believe your evaluation of yourself is truer than God's.”
(T-9.VIII.10, A Course In Miracles)
It's OK to see that someone is beautiful.
