Today's lesson - I am very holy
Today's lesson, number 57 from A Course In Miracles, is a review lesson of lessons 31 - 35 which are: "I am not a victim of the world I see;" "I have invented the world I see;" "There is another way of looking at the world;" "I could see peace instead of this;" "My mind is part of God's. I am very holy."
Eventually it dawns on us that there must be a better way. As they say in Alcoholics Anonymous, my life is unmanageable. This dawning leads to the search when we could have peace instead of anguish, joy instead of sorrow, love instead of hate and attack.
The last lesson reviewed today is "My mind is part of God's. I am very holy." This is the same thing as Unitarian Univeralists affirm and promote in their first principle: the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and the seventh principle: respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
As we become increasingly aware of the nondualistic Oneness of the Divine, the Tao, the Spirit of Life, God, whatever we want to name our Higher Power, we become consciously aware of our holiness.
It is the mission of UU A Way Of Life ministries to sanctify the world by helping people become aware of their holiness. This is done by the covenantal relationships formed to affirm and promote UUs seven principles.
