A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #305 - There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.



 Lesson #305

There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.


Another way of thinking about “Christ” is as a non dualistic Oneness. No division, no separation, no fragmentation, no pieces or parts but a wholeness, holiness, get it?


In Roman Catholicsim, the religion I was raised in, the idea of the non dualistic Oneness is called “The Body Of Christ.” The Body of Christ can be thought of as what the Unitarian Universalists call the “interdependent web of existence of which we are a part.”


Once we heal the separation, the divisiveness, there is a peace in the wholeness, in the holiness. In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we enhance our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation, what some, nowadays, call “mindfulness.”


In Unitarian Universalism we affirm and promote the love of the interdependent web of existence of which we are a part.


Today, we remind ourselves that when we rise above the world of the ego to the world of the Spirit, we experience great peace and joy. We have come home.
