An Exercise in Reverence

“Five minutes of practice sitting in a chair as an infinite creator of exactly what you are experiencing in your emotional field. Just that. You might even want to play with what it would feel like to sit in a chair as a Christ. What would that feel like? I will let you choose whether or not you would like to experience it. Five minutes each day. Do it without fail! Be with yourself, ad decide how you will experience yourself now!” (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 9, Page 114)

Here Jesus gives us an exercise that will help us to realize that we are alright just as we are. He asks us to sit in a chair and imagine that we are a Christ. Just that.

Does this seem too egotistical? Certainly if we let our ego rule, the exercise will be wrong for us. But something deeper is going on. We are heading into actually being Christs. This is what our ultimate resolution will look like.

We need have no fear that our ego will rule this exercise if we pray sincerely to be protected from that ego. Let us give this a “go.” Let us try Jesus at his word, and imagine, in reverence, that we sit as a Christ.
