A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #156, I walk with God in perfect holiness.
I walk with God in perfect holiness.
The lesson today seems to be an unbelievable statement and yet here I am alive on planet Earth breathing oxygen and taking up space. The big existential questions are “Why was I born?”, “What is the meaning and purpose of my life?”, “What happens when my body dies?”
In Alcoholic Anonymous, in step eleven, it is suggested that we seek through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with our Higher Power. The purpose of this seeking is to become more aware. “Who am I really?” “What am I really?” I come to realize I am not the ego. The Divine Spark is what I am. I am imbued with the Transcendent Source which is the Ground of my Being.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. In other words, UUs affirm and promote every person’s inherent holiness.
Today, it is suggested that every minute we remind ourselves and reflect on the idea that we walk with God in perfect holiness. In other words, we become aware of our holiness and maintain this awareness throughout the day.
