A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #291 - This is a day of stillness and peace.

 Lesson #291

This is a day of stillness and peace.

What do we want: hell or heaven, fear or love, war or peace, attack or compassion? It’s our choice. In order to become aware of this choice which we have, we need to develop perspective. We need to rise above the nonsense in the world of the ego. This rising above the ego world is what A Course In Miracles calls “forgiveness.”

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step three, that we decide to turn our willfulness over to the will of God. “Let go and let God” the slogan reads.

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote a respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part and in this awareness we experience stillness and peace. All is one. Ohmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Today, it is suggested that we let the shit go. As Bobby McFerin sang, “Don’t worry. Be happy.” Hum the tune along with me. What if the whole word were to sing this song together in one magnanimous chorus?
