A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #226 - My home awaits me. I will hasten there.

 Lesson #226

My home awaits me. I will hasten there.

Now that we know we have a choice between the world of the ego and the world of Spirit, what are we waiting for? The things of the ego always eventually disappoint. The world of Love is eternal and forever.

In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested, in step three, that we turn our willfulness over to the will of God. We have dragged our feet thinking we can still do it ourselves using our own illusionary will power. And how has that worked for us?

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and where is that search going to take us? Ultimately, it will not be to the things of the ego but to the things of the Spirit. So why do we ramble? Why do we take side trips? Why do we get distracted and go down blind alleys looking for fool’s gold? Maybe, it's time to take seriously the knowledge that Love awaits us and we should hasten there.

Today, it suggested that we begin and end the day. and many times in between, reminding ourselves that Love awaits us and that we should quit dawdling with temptations and go there.
