A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #43 - God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him.
God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him.
In Alcoholics Anonymous and other Twelve Step programs the second step is to come to believe that there is a power greater than ourselves which can restore us to sanity. This is a huge step. This is to recognize and acknowledge that God, as I understand my Higher Power to be, is my Source, and coming to realize this I become aware that I cannot see apart from Him if I am on the right wavelength.
At Christmas time a church had a sidewalk sign which said, “You too can hear the Angel’s song if you tune into the right channel.”
Getting on the right channel is the prime activity of salvation. Salvation is realizing that the world of the ego is an illusion which makes us crazy. If we would restore ourselves to sanity we need to choose again - the world of the Spirit instead of the world of the ego.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and this search is based on the understanding that God is our source, and that I cannot see apart from Him.
The search is not successful if we are not looking in the right place. The song says, “Looking for love in all the wrong places.” If we give up searching in the world of the ego and turn to the world of the Spirit we remember than God is our Source and that if I employ correct vision I cannot see apart from Him.
