A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #317 - I follow in the way appointed to me.


 Lesson #317

I follow in the way appointed to me.


“...Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Isn't it time to get around to doing God’s will instead of your ego’s? Haven’t you wasted enough time and made enough mistakes to learn that your life, run by the ego, is unmanageable? Isn’t it time to find and use a new compass? 


The new compass is simple, simply reconnoiter with what Love would have you do?


In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step three, that we make a decision to turn our will and lives over to the care of God and follow the way appointed for me.


In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which can be found when we give up the suggestions and enticements of our egos and instead discern and follow the way appointed us.


Today, we start living our lives differently. Instead of asking what does my ego want me to do, we ask what would Love have me do? The first way is the path to anxiety and depression, and the second way is the path to peace and joy.
