Today's lesson - God is the Mind with which I think.
Today's lesson, number 45, from A Course In Miracles is "God is the Mind with which I think."
Decartes famously said, "Cogito, ergo sum," I think, therefore I am.
Decartes got it wrong. We are not our thoughts. Our throughts change constantly. We change our minds all the time, and in our humility, admit that most of our thoughts are wrong.
St. Paul in his letter to Corinthians tells us that if God is with us who can be against us?
The mystics tell us that we human beings are a thought in God's mind and if we revert back to that peace and bliss arises.
My favorite bar card says, Don't believe everything you think.
Today we are encouraged to rest and allow our monkey mind to receed from our awareness. We are encouraged to seek the Mind of God and think with that. This requires forgiveness which means rising above the bull shit.
As Unitarian Universalists we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This truth and meaning is to be found in the Mind of God not in the insane world of the ego.
