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?


Spiritual Poem

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.


You Are Beautiful

God says, “You are beautiful.”
I say, “No I’m not.”

God says, “Do you think I am a liar then?”
I say, “Of course not, You are God.
You do not lie.”

God says, “Do you think I am mistaken then?”
I say, “Of course not, You are God.
You do not make mistakes.”

God says, “Do you think you know yourself better than I know you?”
I say, “Of course not, You are God.
You see everything. You know me better than I know myself.”

God says, “Do you think I created something ugly and bad when I created you?”
I say, “Of course not, You are God.
You create, and You see it is good.”

God says, “Do you think you are more powerful than me? Perhaps I create you beautiful, but you change yourself?”
I say, “Of course not, You are God.
How can I be so powerful as to change the essence You give me?”

God says, “When you look at it, what you think about me is insulting.
You think I am a liar, or mistaken, or don’t know you well, or create bad things, or that I’m less powerful than you.”
I say, “I’ve never looked at it that way before.”

God says, “Do you listen to other people more than you listen to me?”
I say, feeling ashamed, “Yes Lord. But I thought they were talking for You.”
God gives me a look of sadness and frustration that His people do not always speak His words.

God says, “You are beautiful.”
I say…, and I don’t know what to say. My head, full of contradictory information, feels like it will burst.

And I know God is telling me something I really don’t want to know.
It goes against what I’ve been taught.
I don’t want to know that everything I’ve been taught is wrong.

I reply, saying,
“Yes God, I am beautiful.”
I am crying, and I am confused.
And I feel God will punish me for my pride.
Yet it is God who pushes and pushes me to see this as the truth.

God holds me in His love and lets me cry.
“Thank you,” He says. “Thank you for listening.”


“Your value is in God's Mind, and therefore not in yours alone.

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.

Let us be willing to say of others - in silence or out loud - You are beautiful.

Let us be willing to say of ourselves - I am beautiful, or I am willing to know my beauty.



If you found the poem difficult to say, you may want to say the following prayer:

Dear God,

I may not feel beautiful.
I may not feel worthy of your love.
But I am willing to understand that it is not for me to make myself beautiful to you.
It is not for me to make myself worthy of you.

I am beautiful because...
You are my beauty.
You are my worth.

I cannot become enough on my own.
But when I know myself as part of you, I am more than enough.
I am everything.

Your beauty shines through me.
Dear God, I am willing for your beauty to shine through me.

I am willing to stop being preoccupied with my failings and build up my confidence, based not on my abilities, but on your abilities.

I am willing to hear you saying that I am beautiful.
I am willing to believe you.

Thank you for working in my mind, my heart and my life today.

I see your beauty and I see my own.

Thank you.

Amen

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
