A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #50 - I am sustained by the love of God
I am sustained by the love of God.
We are told by society that money will make us happy. Romance will make us happy. Status will make us happy. The drink or drug will make us happy. How about the new car, the new house, a child, a good job? The ego promises us happiness in various forms and disguises. They all fail us in the end. What never fails us is the Love of God.
The Universalists taught that the Love of God is unconditional and with us always. In A Course Of Miracles we are taught that the Love which is beyond all fears is our natural inheritance. In the eleventh step of Alcoholics Anonymous we are told that through prayer and meditation we can improve our conscious contact with God discerning God’s will for us and the power to carry it out. In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote seven principles the seventh of which is a love for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
When we come right down to the ground of our being, we become blissfully aware that we are sustained by the love of God.
