"God cannot enter a body, nor can you join him there."
"Indeed you cannot remain in this world with this knowledge."
"To be without a body is to be in your natural state."
"For thus am I led past this world to my creations, children of my Will, in Heaven where my holy Self abides with them, and Him Who has created me."
"The body cannot create"
"You CANNOT create in this divided state, and you MUST be vigilant AGAINST this divided state because ONLY peace CAN BE extended."
"As long as perception lasts, prayer has a place. Since perception rests on lack, those who perceive have not totally accepted the Atonement and given over themselves to truth. Perception IS a separated state, and the perceiver DOES need healing.
Communion, not prayer, is the natural state of those who know. God and HIS miracles are inseparable."
"Perception of the truth is not the same as knowing it"
"In this world, it is impossible to create."
"And gone are bodies in the blazing light upon the altar to the Son of God."
"Gone is perception, false and true alike."
"the face of Christ has shone away time's final instant"
"no belief in sin, no walls, no bodies, and the grim appeal of guilt and death is there snuffed out forever."
"The Soul never loses its communion with God. Only the mind and body need Atonement."
"Communion, not prayer, is the natural state of those who know."
"The Holy Spirit's temple is not a body, but a relationship."
"You CANNOT make the body the Holy Spirit's temple, and it will NEVER be the seat of love. It is the home of the idolater, and of love's condemnation."
"Those who have learned to offer ONLY healing, because of the reflection of holiness in them, are ready at last for Heaven. There, holiness is not a reflection, but rather the ACTUAL CONDITION of what was but reflected TO them here."
"The body cannot contain you who are love."
"When we are all united in Heaven, you will value NOTHING that you value here."
"As your function in Heaven is creation, so your function on earth is healing. God shares His function with you in Heaven, and the Holy Spirit shares His with you on Earth."
"Life not in Heaven is impossible, and what is not in Heaven is not anywhere."
"Even the perception of the Holy Spirit, as perfect as perception CAN be, is without meaning in Heaven. "
"In Heaven God's Son is NOT imprisoned in a body, nor is sacrificed in solitude to sin. And as he is in Heaven, so MUST he be eternally and everywhere."
"Father, in Heaven it is different, for there, there are no needs."
"In Heaven, where the meaning of love is known, love is the same as UNION."
"great is the joy in Heaven"
"The holiness of your relationship is established in Heaven."
"Your Father knoweth that you have need of nothing. In Heaven this is so. For what could you need in eternity? In YOUR world you DO need things"
"In this form you can fulfill your function even here, although what love will mean to you when formlessness has been restored to you is greater still."
"Learning must lead beyond the body"
"Unity alone is not a thing of dreams. And it is this God's teachers acknowledge as behind the dream, beyond all seeming and yet surely theirs."
"Let your awareness of your brother not be blocked by your perception of his sins, and of his body. "
"For it is only in Heaven that God would have you be. "
"There IS no life outside of Heaven. Where God created life, there life must be. In any state apart from Heaven, life is illusion. At best, it seems like life; at worst, like death."
"In the holy instant, where the Great Rays REPLACE the body in awareness, the recognition of relationships WITHOUT limits is given you."
"Love's meaning is your own, and shared by God Himself. For what you are is what He is. There is no love but His, and what He is is everything there is. There is no limit placed upon Himself, and so are you unlimited as well."
"Grace is the natural state of every Son of God. When he is not in a state of grace he IS out of his natural environment, and does NOT function well. Everything he does becomes a strain, because he was not created for the environment which he has made. He therefore cannot adapt to it, nor can he adapt it to him. There is no point in trying. A Son of God is happy only when he knows he is WITH God. That is the only environment in which he will not experience strain, because that is where he belongs. It is also the only environment that is worthy of him, because his own worth is beyond ANYTHING that he can make.
Consider the Kingdom which you have made, and judge its worth fairly. Is it worthy to be a home for a Child of God? Does it protect his peace, and shine love upon him? Does it keep his heart untouched by fear, and allow him to give always without any sense of loss? Does it teach him that this giving is his joy, and that God Himself thanks him for his giving?
That is the only environment in which you can be happy. You cannot make it, anymore than you can make yourselves."
"The joy of Heaven, which HAS no limit, is INCREASED with each light that returns, to take its rightful place within it. Wait no longer, for the Love of God and YOU."
"Joy is unlimited"
"The mind that serves the Holy Spirit is unlimited forever, in all ways, beyond the laws of time and space, unbound by any preconceptions, and with strength and power to do whatever it is asked."
"The Will of God is without limit, and all power and glory lie within it. It is boundless in strength and in love and in peace. It has no boundaries because its extension is unlimited, and it encompasses all things because it CREATED all things. By CREATING all things, it made them PART OF ITSELF. You are the Will of God, because this is how you were created. Because your Creator creates only like Himself, you are like Him.
You are part of Him who is all power and glory, and are therefore as unlimited as He is."
"The extension of God's Being is the Soul's only function. ITS fullness cannot be contained any more than can the fullness of its Creator. Fullness IS extension."
"God extends outward beyond limits and beyond time"
"The creative power of both God AND His Creations is limitless"
