The heart of your humanity is your greatest asset, not your downfall. Mirari
We grew up hearing about our sinful flesh, how it betrays us and keeps us from accepting God and doing His will. But the “heart” of our humanity is an asset in this world. When we listen to our heart, which is the same as listening to intuition, we seldom make mistakes about what we are “hearing.” And our heart is part of our humanity, part of our form, our flesh.
Of, we can let our own desires overrule what we are hearing from our depths. But we can’t fool ourselves for long, and that is the blessing. We know when we are off course, and then if we acknowledge the mistake we are making, and trust ourselves to forgive ourselves for the lapse, we are well on the way back to God’s bosom.
Know that living in this world with our form is an asset, but only when we listen to the heart of our humanity. This turn of phrase, “heart of your humanity,” is new in received writings. We can emphasize “heart” or “humanity,” but I think the best way to read the phrase is to give equal weight to both words.
Remember that what we see as basic to our humanity is actually the great asset which Mary is pointing out. We don’t need to downgrade our humanity, our physical forms. They will be transformed in the New, and we will live with Spirit fully present as well.
I think one reason that Jesus and Mary have channeled these new writings of A Course of Love and Mirari is that too many of us just wanted to get this earthly life over with after we had read and assimilated A Course in Miracles. Jesus’ downplaying of the physical in ACIM was counterproductive, and I think he came to realize that. Who would want to save the world if we all want to just leave it?
Jesus and Mary need us here. We have work to do. Let’s let the “heart of humanity” inform our choices of what to do and what to say.
