The world was saddened by the death of Farrah Fawcett yesterday and shocked by the death of Michael Jackson on the same day. Both celebrities were loved by millions of people around the world. Farrah’s recent documentary about her three-year battle with cancer won critical acclaim, and Michael’s recent tour announcement was met with widespread excitement and sold-out venues. They will both be missed greatly, and the tragic loss of both of them on the same day will be difficult for many to deal with.

For all those who are grieving following these two tragedies on the same day, the ACIM Workbook offers a lesson of such importance that it is repeated three times. Lesson #94, #110, and #162 is, “I am as God created me.”

Before we were born, we were as the Divine created us. Throughout our lives, no matter what mistakes we make, we remain as the Divine created us. After we leave this world, we will continue to be as the Divine created us. The Workbook goes on to say that each of us is spirit:

    "You are the spirit lovingly endowed with all your Father’s Love and peace and joy. You are the spirit which completes Himself, and shares His function as Creator. He is with you always, as you are with Him."

We sadly say goodbye to Farrah and Michael as we knew them here on earth, but they have always been so much more than what we could see or hear. They are spirit, as they were created. They are at home, as they were created. They are united with their Creator, as they were created. And so are we. We are as the Divine created us.
