A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #157, Into His Presence would I enter now.


 Lesson #157
Into His Presence would I enter now.

There comes a point at which words fail us. We just experience our Oneness with Love which is indescribable. The lesson today teaches that this lesson is a turning point in the curriculum. We are invited to enter into a mystical experience which the Course calls “revelation.”  Carl Jung said one time that he didn’t believe in God, he knows God. At this point, belief and knowledge become superfluous.

In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested in step eleven, that through prayer and mediation we  seek to enhance our conscious contact with God. This experience of Unconditional Love is mood altering beyond anything we have previously experienced.

In Unitarian Universalism, we are taught that one of the Unitarian pioneers of the sixteenth century, Francis David, said that we need not think alike to love alike. It is this Love that the Course encourages to enter into today.

Today, it is suggested that we stop what we are doing and just sink into the Presence Of God. This is the place where time stands still. There is no future, no past, just, what the Course calls, a “Holy Instant.”
