A Course in Miracles

Workbook For Students

Lesson 294 - My body is a wholly neutral thing.

I am a Son of God.

And can I be another thing as well?

Did God create the mortal and corruptible?

What use has God’s beloved Son for what must die?

And yet a neutral thing does not see death, for thoughts of fear are not invested there, nor is a mockery of love bestowed upon it. Its neutrality protects it while it has a use. And afterwards, without a purpose, it is laid aside. It is not sick nor old nor hurt. It is but functionless, unneeded and cast off.

Let me not see it more than this today...

  • of service for a while and fit to serve,
  • to keep its usefulness while it can serve, and
  • then to be replaced for greater good.


“My body, Father, cannot be Your Son.

And what is not created cannot be sinful nor sinless; neither good nor bad.

Let me, then, use this dream to help Your plan that we awaken from all dreams we made.”
