Today's lesson, number 96, "Salvation comes from my one Self."


Today's lesson, number 96 in A Course In Miracles, is, "Salvation comes from my one Self."

My "Self" with a capital S is my Oneness with God. We, each, are part of the nondualistic Oneness and not separate selves at all. "We, each,..." do not really exist. Our belief in our separateness is an illusion which gives rise to nothing but drama.

Shakespeare tells us in his play, As You Life It,  "All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,"

There is a part of us which knows that the separate egos we have created are not real, and yet a part of us that believes in our egos desperately and to which we cling.

Are we separate selves or are we, as we affirm and promote in our Unitarian Univeralist seventh principle, a part of the interdependent web?

Today, take five minutes every hour and remind yourself that the many parts we play are just drama and that our real essence is the One Self, the interdependent web of which we are just a part. In this awareness, we experience the Unconditional Love of the Universe and in this awareness we extend the Unconditional Love to the rest of creation.
