Review of lesson #193 - All things are lessons God would have me learn.
A Course in Miracles teaches that life is a classroom. It is written in the introduction that we don’t get to choose the curriculum only the time we choose to learn it. Have you noticed that some people are faster learners than others? Some people seem to learn the first or second time while others repeat the same mistakes over and over again and don’t seem to learn a darn thing. What makes the difference? It is our decision to turn our willfulness over to a willingness to listen to and do God’s will.
It is suggested in Alcoholic Anonymous in step three that we make a decision to turn out will over to God’s will for us. “Let go and let God” is the slogan.
In Unitarian Universalism, it is suggested that we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. When we embark on this search we become aware that our experiences are grist for the mill. Our experiences are lessons God would have us learn.
Today, it is suggested that we begin and end the day, and many times in between, take a few moments or minutes to reflect on our experience and to ask with an attitude of curiosity what am I to learn from this?
