Introduction The Christ in you inhabits not a body. 2 Yet He is in you. 3 And thus it must be that you are not within a body. 4 What is within you cannot be outside. 5 And it is certain that you cannot be apart from what is at the very center of your life. 6 What gives you life cannot be housed in death. 7 No more can you. 8 Christ is within a frame of Holiness whose only purpose is that He may be made manifest to those who know Him not, that He may call to them to come to Him and see Him where they thought their bodies were. 9 Then will their bodies melt away, that they may frame His Holiness in them. No one who carries Christ in him can fail to recognize Him everywhere. 2 Except in bodies. 3 And as long as he believes he is in a body, where he thinks he is He cannot be. 4 And so he carries Him unknowingly, and does not make Him manifest. 5 And thus he does not recognize Him where He is. 6 The son of man is not the risen Christ. 7 Yet does the Son of God abide exactly where he is, and walks with him within his holiness, as plain to see as is his specialness set forth within his body. The body needs no healing. 2 But the mind that thinks it is a body is sick indeed! 3 And it is here that Christ sets forth the remedy. 4 His purpose folds the body in His light, and fills it with the Holiness that shines from Him. 5 And nothing that the body says or does but makes Him manifest. 6 To those who know Him not it carries Him in gentleness and love, to heal their minds. 7 Such is the mission that your brother has for you. 8 And such it must be that your mission is for him.
