A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #211, Review of lesson #191 - I am the holy Son of God Himself.

 Lesson #211
I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
Review of lesson #191 - I am the holy Son of God Himself.

Sometimes parents berate their children and shame them by scolding, “Who do you think you are?!” Sometimes they think, if not say, “You need to be taken down a peg or two.” And sometimes add, 'You're getting too big for your britches!’” These were common parenting attitudes in my generation known as the baby boomers born after world war II and raised in the 50s. 

When not said with contempt and disdain but rather with curiosity and respect, “Who do you think you are” is a very good question. Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?”
A Course In Miracles provides us with the proper response in lesson #191, “I am the holy Son Of God HImself.”

In Alcoholics Anonymous, it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. When we do that we come to realize that we are the holy Son of God Himself.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth which is born from the awareness that we all are the holy sons and daughters of God.

Today, it is suggested that we take fifteen minutes at the beginning and end of the day, and many times in between, to remind ourselves who we are. We are in fact the sons and daughters of  God. Knowing this generates great peace and joy.
