Today's lesson - There is nothing to fear
We are told in the introduction to A Course In Miracles, "The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite."
It is pointed out in today's lesson that those who trust in illusions experience fear because illusions are not true. It is further pointed out that those who trust in illusions are trusting in their own strength rather than in the strength of God.
Our decision making mind can choose between the path of the ego and the path of the spirit. When we choose the path of the ego, fear arises because the ego tells us it is "one or the other" and "give to get" which always involves attack and loss.
Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. This principle affirms and promotes "liberty" which is freedom from fear and with this loss of fear comes a willingness to be just and with justice comes great peace.
