This holy instant would I give to You. Be You in charge. For I would follow You, certain that Your direction gives me peace.
The lesson today is the same as yesterday and the day before that. We are drawing to within two days of the end of the year long ACIM workbook lessons. This lesson is repeated five days in a row because it is so important. What is more important to our salvation than shedding our ego born out of separation and rejoining the Oneness from whence we came and which is the Ground Of Our Being?
In Alcoholic Anonymous the eleventh step encourages us to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand God. This is the purpose of life and what deep down we yearn for although we go off on many other wild goose chases after worldly things we think will make us happy.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which can take us hither and yon until we realize that what we seek is within and not without and we begin to become aware of and experience our inherent worth and dignity which comes from the Divine Spark within.
Today, as we have in the two previous days and as we will do tomorrow, it is suggested that we rest in the present with our Transcendent Source and experience the rising of peace and bliss.
