A Course In Miracles Lesson 119, Review lessons 107 and 108


 Lesson #119
Review of lessons 107 and 108

107 - Truth will correct all errors in my mind.
108 - To give and receive are one in truth.

Truth as defined by A Course In Miracles is the non-dualistic Oneness from which we have separated ourselves. Truth is the ocean. Our ego selves are the drops of the ocean which we think are separate. This belief in separateness is an illusion and the Course teaches many times “insane.” To believe in a separate self is to believe in untruth and when our consciousness is raised, and we experience the Oneness, the errors have been corrected and we understand that to give and receive are one.

In Alcoholic Anonymous we are encouraged in step eleven to improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. We do this by giving up our willfulness and aligning ourselves willingly with God; we experience great peace and joy.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person and a love for the interdependent web of all existence. The Unitarian Universal mystic Harry Hollywood said to the hot dog vendor, “Make me one with everything.” Harry gave the vendor $5.00 for a $2.50 hot dog and when the vendor did not give Harry his change, Harry asked the vendor, “Where’s the change?” The vendor said, “Harry, being a mystic, you know better than anyone that change comes from within.” Harry and the vendor laughed heartily.

Today, take five minutes at the beginning and end of the day and reflect on the idea that Truth (Oneness) corrects all errors in your mind about separation, and knowing  this, we realize that  to give and receive are one in truth.
