“Miracles make minds one in God. They depend on cooperation because the Sonship is the sum of all that God created. Miracles therefore reflect the laws of eternity, not of time.” ACIM. T-1.1.19:1-3
While the teaching of A Course In Miracles is very simple, its metaphysics can be quite jarring because it is so counter-cultural. Once a person understands the metaphysics of the Course, the application of the ideas of this metaphysics takes repeated reminders and practice.
Miracles remind us that we are One with God. God and God’s creation are all One. Our human dilemma occurred with the separation from the Oneness of God when we were born. We then became conditioned and socialized by our families and society to become a separate ego. In this process, we lost our innocence, and life is about regaining it and finding our way consciously and willingly back to the Oneness of God.
To become One we must cooperate with the creative :Love of God and with our fellow humans and all of what we call Life. On the ego plain this takes time, but in eternity before the separation there is no time. When we remember our Oneness we enter into a flow state where time stands still and has no meaning.
The Univeralists taught that God is Unconditional Love and that humanity is the Body Of Christ. These ideas are articulated in many of our Unitarian Universalists principles.
Today, I will give up making other people and situations responsible for my unhappiness and feeling and acting like a victim. I will remember that I am not a victim, but the Beloved Extention of God’s Love in the universe..
