Cosmic consciousness awaits.

The branch that bears no fruit will be cut off and will wither away. Be glad! The light will shine from the true Foundation of life, and your own thought system will stand corrected. It cannot stand otherwise. You who fear salvation are choosing death. Life and death, light and darkness, knowledge and perception, are irreconcilable. To believe that they can be reconciled is to believe that God and His Son can not. Only the oneness of knowledge is free of conflict. Your Kingdom is not of this world because it was given you from beyond this world. Only in this world is the idea of an authority problem meaningful. The world is not left by death but by truth, and truth can be known by all those for whom the Kingdom was created, and for whom it waits.T-3.VII.6: 1-11

A Course in Miracles . Foundation for Inner Peace. Kindle Edition. 

This paragraph pretty much sums up the whole Course. If we drop the ego and its perceptions we know, more clearly, the truth which is our Oneness with God.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested in step eleven that we improve our conscious contact with God. This means dropping the ego, its perceptions, and its consequent false beliefs.

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which is not to be found in the perceptions of the ego but in the abiding knowledge that is within.

Today, it is suggested for a minute or two at a time that we take a few deep breaths and turn within and relax into the oneness of cosmic consciousness.
