Today's lesson - God goes with me wherever I go.
Today's lesson, number 42, from A Course In Miracles, is "God goes with me wherever I go."
We have been told that the biggest problem in America today is lonliness. Do you believe that?
Why would lonliness be one of the biggest problems in America?
What kind of a problem is this: psychological, social, spiritual, all of them?
Lonliness, as a problem, at its core, is a problem of the ego. The ego is lonely. It isn't getting enough strokes. When our egos experience lonliness it is because we have forgetten who we are.
Unitarian Univeralists covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. How can a person with inherent worth and dignity ever be lonely? Lonliness makes a person unworthy and undignified. Lonliness and inherent worth and dignity seem to be a contradiction, a paradox.
It is written in A Course In Miracles that God goes with us wherever we go, but "We understand that you do not believe all this. How could you, when the truth is hidden deep within, under a heavy cloud of insane thoughts, dense and obscuring, yet representing all you see?" Lesson 41.5:1-2
And so, today, just sit quietly and clear your mind of nonsense, of insane thoughts, or what the Buddhist's call "monkey mind." Say to yourself, "God goes with me wherever I go."
