”God did not create the body.”

“The ego’s fundamental wish is to replace God. In fact, the ego is the physical embodiment of this wish. For it is this wish which seems to surround the mind with a body, keeping it separate and alone; and unable to reach other minds except through the body which was made to imprison it.”

”Love did not create the body.”

“A mind and body cannot both exist.”

”You CANNOT make the body the Holy Spirit's temple, and it will NEVER be the seat of love. It is the home of the idolater, and of love's condemnation.”

”God did not make the body, because it is destructible, and therefore not of the Kingdom. The body is the symbol of what you THINK you are. It is clearly a separation device, and therefore does not exist.”

”For minds need not the body to communicate.”

“How can a body be extended to hold the universe? Can it create, and BE what it creates? And can it offer its creation all that it is, and never suffer loss? God does not share His function with a body.”

“I am not of this world.” “I am not a body I am free.”

“Yet God did not will the destruction of His creations, having created them for eternity.”

“The body is the central figure in the dreaming of the world. There IS no dream without it, nor does it exist without the dream, in which it acts as if it were a person, to be seen and be believed.”

”The dreaming of the world takes many forms, because the body seeks in many ways to PROVE it is autonomous and real.”

“That this is all the BODY does is true, for it IS but a figure in a dream. But who REACTS to figures in a dream UNLESS he sees them as if they were real?”

”And if God created bodies, death would indeed be real. But God would not be loving.”

“Yet could God's Son as He created him abide in form or in a world of form?”

“(Pain) Its purpose is the same as pleasure, for they both are means TO MAKE THE BODY REAL.”

“It is a picture of a body still, for what you REALLY are can not be seen nor pictured.”

“The Great Rays would establish the total LACK of value of the special relationship, IF THEY WERE SEEN. For, in seeing THEM, the body WOULD disappear, BECAUSE ITS VALUE WOULD BE LOST. And so your whole INVESTMENT in seeing it would be WITHDRAWN from it.”

“It is impossible to seek for pleasure through the body and NOT find pain.”

“A miracle reawakens the awareness that the spirit, and not the body, is the altar of Truth.”

“All separation, all distinctions, and the multitude of differences you believe make up the world. They are not there. Love s enemy has made them up.”

“Sin gave the body eyes, for what is there the sinless would behold?”

”The body is the idea of sin made flesh and projected outwards.”

“Perception involves the body even in its most spiritualized form.”

“Forgive the world, and you will understand that everything that God created cannot have an end, and nothing He did not create is real.”

“(The body) Leave it behind, it cannot enter Heaven.”

“The mind that made the body can make another because all form is illusion.”
