A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #143, Review of 125 and 126, It is in giving that we receive




 Lesson #143
Review of lessons #125 and #126

My mind holds only what I think with God.
125 - In quiet I receive God’s Word today.
126 - All that I give I give to myself.

In A Course In Miracles there are two key concepts, the small self of the ego, and the huge Self which encompasses everyone in what Emerson called the “oversoul” and Christains call the “Body of Christ” and sometimes refer to as the “communion of saints. I think of it as all for One and One for all.

In Alcoholics Anonymous, in the twelfth  step it is suggested that what we have learned from working the twelve steps be carried to others. This activity is often referred to as “twelve stepping.” When you have achieved so much peace and joy in your life that you can’t contain it all, it is time to let it overflow by sharing it with others.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth. We learn what we teach, we receive what we give, when we love unconditionally we are loving Ourself.

Today we begin and end the day, and many times in between, we remind ourselves and reflect that in quiet I receive God’s word and in receiving God’s word when I share it, I share it with mySelf.
