Living like the Birds of the Air

“Being who you are is what you are called to do. You are here asked to live a life as seamless as that of the birds of the air. You are asked to live a life where there is no division between who you are and what you do. This place of no division is the place of unity.” (ACOL, T2:4.13)

If we can be consistent with our deepest self, we will live as intended in the earlier volume, A Course in Miracles. Honesty is there defined as consistency, that nothing we say or do conflicts with any word, thought, or action. This is perfect honesty. This is what Jesus is calling us to in this passage, using different words. When we live a seamless life, we live a consistent life. An honest life.

The birds of the air are protected by God, as we learn in the New Testament. They don’t spin or weave, they are provided for. As are we. We are provided for by listening to the words of A Course of Love, knowing that we are already The Accomplished. We have only to stay on course, not to drop backward into egoic thinking, and everything will go as it is intended to go.

No division between who we are and what we do. . . .yes! This is the place of unity of mind and heart, the place where our personal or little self is united with our Christ-Self, the inner part of us who is one with God.

Despite such repetition in ACOL, we still may seem confused about exactly how we live as we are, how we are who we are—not who we think we are. Our minds can still confuse. Our hearts do not. Our hearts will lead us rightly, and if we listen to this core of our Self, we will understand what to say and do. We will be living seamlessly. We will be like the birds of the air, flying with one purpose, loving with all our might.


I would live consistently, that is to say, honestly. I would seek to live in peace and harmony always. To follow my own star, which is the same as following my heart. Following my heart will take me home; of this I am sure.

Be with me today as I walk through this sometimes busy life. May I retain the serenity that I feel right now. And thank You for this serenity.
