A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #258 - Let me remember that my goal is God.

 

Lesson #258

Let me remember that my goal is God.


The biggest question we can ask in life is “What really matters?” The mystics say it is Divinity, being one with the Oneness from which we have separated ourselves.


In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation, what today we call mindfulness. It is simple really. All we have to do is ask, as needed, “what would Love have me do?”


In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the love of the interdependent web of which we are a part. Whether we call it the Ground of Our Being, the Source, the Power, God, Life, it doesn’t matter. What matters is the desire to actualize our potential to realize our Holiness.


Today, let us be mindful that our goal is to become one with God. This requires a thoughtful surrender to what we believe is God’s will. As it said in an earlier lesson, “Stand back and let God lead the way.”
