Today's lesson, number 97, "I am spirit."
Today's lesson, number 97 in A Course In Miracles, is "I am spirit."
Am I a body with a spirit or a spirit in a body. Today's lesson is very clear, I am a spirit who, at this moment of time, is in a body. The body is simply a means of communication of ideas and it is ideas that make one holy.
Holy ideas sanctify the world because they share and spread Love.
At our church we say this affirmation every Sunday, "Love is the doctrine of this church, the quest for truth is its sacrament, and service is it's prayer."
The Universalists have preached that God is Unconditional Love meaning that God loves everybody and everything.
Today, April 22, 2019 is Earth Day which celebrates our UU seventh principle, a respect for the interdependent web of which we are a part. The Earth is our celestial body and yet the solar rock on which we reside is nothing without the consciousness which it is home to. It is this consciousness which distinguishes planet Earth from other planets, and once again we realize that we are not of the Earth but of the Divine Spirit from which we have separated ourselves and to which we will return.
Today, remind yourself, 5 minutes of every hour if you are able, that you are spirit and it is your job to spread the Unconditional Love of God around the world.
