Review of lessons 97 and 98
97- I am Spirit
98 - I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.
There are a few fundamental existential questions which all human beings struggle with. The most fundamental question of these existential questions is “Am I a Spirit in a body or a body with a Spirit?”
Today, A Course In Miracles answers this question unequivocally and teaches us that we are Spirits. Further, we are taught, if we would learn, that having recognized and acknowledged this fundamental reality, we have work to do in helping ourselves and others heal from the illusion that we have authored our own lives and are self sufficient unto ourselves.
In Alcoholic Anonymous we are assisted in accepting our part in God’s plan for salvation when we worked the first three steps admitting that we are not the author of our own lives, coming to believe in a Transcendent power which encompasses us, and deciding to turn our willfulness to call our own shots over to that Transcendent power to guide our lives.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which emanates not from oneself but from the Source of our being.
Today, it is suggested that we start the day and end the day reminding ourselves that we are Spirit not a body and that this recognition is the part we are asked to play in God’s plan for salvation.
