I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
Review of lesson #194 - I place the future in the hands of God.
Pam Grout, in her book, The Course In Miracles Experiment, in discussing this lesson, uses a quote from Stephen Levine as an epigraph, “Water is water, no matter what shape or form. The solidity of ice imagines itself to be its edges and density. Melting, it remembers; evaporating, it ascends.” Today, we are reminded to put our future in the hands of God for when our bodies melt, our energy which animates the body evaporates and ascends.
It is suggested in Alcoholic Anonymous that we make a decision in step three to turn our will over to God as we understand God. It is suggested in this step that we eschew our body and our ego and transcend with our consciousness to a higher plane.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning, a search that ultimately takes us to our Transcendent Source where we can rest in peace and joy.
Today, it is suggested that we take fifteen minutes at the beginning and end of the day, and many times in between, to turn it over: turn our will over to God. If we step back, God will lead the way.
