Concerning the soul, the course teaches;
“The Creation of the Soul is already fully accomplished.
The Soul always remains changeless.
Because it never leaves the sight of God.
The Soul never loses its communion with God.
The body of Christ which is a way of referring the sum of the souls God created, IS the corporate body of Christ.
The Sonship is your Soul. As God’s Creation it is yours, and belonging to you, it is His.
Whatever is true and real is eternal, and cannot change or be changed. The Soul is therefore unalterable because it is ALREADY perfect, but the mind can elect the level it chooses to serve. The only limit which is put on its choice is that it CANNOT serve two masters.
Free will is the attribute of the mind, NOT the Soul.
Christ Mind wills from the Soul, not from the Ego, and the Christ Mind IS yours.
The Christ in you inhabits NOT a body.
Yet He IS in you, and thus MUST it be that YOU are not within a body. What is within you CANNOT be outside. And it is certain that YOU cannot be APART from what is at the very CENTER of your life. What gives you life cannot be housed in death. NO MORE CAN YOU.
You, too, have a Kingdom which your Soul has created.
It has not ceased to create because your ego has set you on the road of perception.
Your Soul’s creations are no more fatherless than you are.
Your ego and your Soul will never be co-creators, but your Soul and YOUR Creator will ALWAYS be.
The mind, if it votes to do so, becomes a medium by which the Soul can create along the line of its own creation. If it does not freely elect to do so, it retains this creative ability, but places itself under tyrannous rather than authoritative control. As a result, what it creates is imprisonment, because such are the dictates of tyrants.
Be confident that your creations are as safe as you are. The Kingdom is perfectly united and perfectly protected, and the ego will not prevail against it. Amen.
Your Soul does not need salvation,
but your mind needs to learn what salvation IS. You are not saved FROM anything, but you ARE saved FOR glory. Glory is your inheritance, given your Soul by its Creator, that you might EXTEND it. But if you hate part of your own Soul, ALL your understanding is lost, because you are looking on what God creates AS YOURSELF without love. And since what He created IS part of Him, you are denying Him His place in His own altar.
Could you try to make God homeless, and know YOU are at home? Can the Son deny the Father, WITHOUT believing that the Father has denied HIM? God’s laws hold ONLY for your protection, and they never hold in vain. What you experience, when you deny your father, is still for your protection, for the power of your will cannot be lessened without the intervention of God AGAINST it, and any limitation on YOUR power is NOT the Will of God. Therefore, look ONLY to the power that God gave you to save you, remembering that it is yours BECAUSE it is His, and join with your brothers in His peace. The peace of YOUR Soul lies in its limitlessness.
Limit the peace you share, and your own Soul MUST be unknown to you.
Every altar to God is part of your Soul, because the Light He created is One with Him. Would you cut a brother off from the Light that is yours? You could not do so, if you realized that YOU CAN ONLY DARKEN YOUR OWN MIND. As you bring HIM back, so will YOUR mind return. That is the law of God, for the protection of the wholeness of His Son.”
