You may believe that you are responsible for what you do, but not for what you think. The truth is that you are responsible for what you think, because it is only at this level that you can exercise choice. What you do comes from what you think. You cannot separate yourself from the truth by “giving” autonomy to behavior. This is controlled by me automatically as soon as you place what you think under my guidance. Whenever you are afraid, it is a sure sign that you have allowed your mind to miscreate and have not allowed me to guide it. T-2.VI.2:5-10
A Course in Miracles . Foundation for Inner Peace. Kindle Edition.
A Course In Miracles is a course in mind training. It’s not what you think but how you think that is important. Do you think in alignment with the world of Spirit or the world of ego? Jesus suggests that we place what we think under His guidance. Jesus further suggests that we can tell when we have failed to place our thinking under His guidance because we will experience fear.
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 as we understand God.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Responsible means that we turn our thinking over to our Higher Power whatever we understand our Higher Power to be.
Today, it is suggested that we pay attention to and correct our thinking and our behavior will take care of itself.
