A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #82, Review of lessons 63 and 64.
Review of lessons 63 and 64.
63 - The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.
64 - Let me not forget my function.
Forgiveness as described in A Course In Miracles is the willingness to give up making others responsible for my unhappiness. We make a conscious decision to no longer play the blame game, take on the role of the victim, and instead embrace the Unconditonal Love of the Universe which is the ground of my being.
In Alcoholics Anonymous, in step three, we decide to turn our will, our ego, over to the care of Love. We decide to entertain what a wonderful world it can be.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another encouragement to spiritual growth.
As Rumi wrote: Our purpose here on earth: to manifest the very nature of our spirit, which is touched by the spirit of God.
Today we are asked to take 10 - 15 minutes twice, and whenever anger, resentment, fear, and guilt creep up to remind ourselves that our function is to forgive the world of the ego for obstructing our awareness and experience of the peace of God.
