Today's lesson, number 109, "I rest in God."
Today's lesson is number 109 in A Course In Miracles which is, "I rest in God."
We tell each other to "Stop and smell the roses." Simon and Garfunkle sang, "Slow down. You move to fast. You've got to make the morning last."
Today, we are asked to take five minutes every hour, if we can and are so inclined, to just stop what we're doing, take three deep breaths, and relax for five minutes. Think of nothing but the peace of God which radiates from God's unconditional love for us and rest in the Oneness of Cosmic Consciousness.
Unitarian Universalists experience this peace of God when they rest in their covenantal relationships based on their seven principles. Jesus said that where two or more are gathered in His name, there He would be. What Jesus is talking about is, of course, Spirit. Jesus' love and peace abides in loving relationships that are covenantal. Jesus is encouraging us to rest in God.
