A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #285 - My holiness shines bright and clear today.

 Lesson #285

My holiness shines bright and clear today.

The idea that we create our own reality is very simple when we understand the psychological concept of “implicit bias.” Implicit bias means that we tend to see what we expect to see. If we wake up in the morning and expect bad things to happen then we selectively perceive any evidence we find that we are right. If, on the other hand, when we wake up in the morning and expect good things to happen, we find evidence for that expectation as well.

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we seek to improve our conscious contact with the Divine through prayer and meditation. Prayer and meditation simply enhance awareness of holiness (wholeness).

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. As we affirm and promote this inherent worth and dignity, we become increasingly aware of our own holiness as well as that of others.

Today, it is suggested that we accentuate the positive and diminish the negative. All it takes is a refocusing on what’s really important in our lives and in the world.
