Channeling the Force

In the Kingdom, where you are and what you are is perfectly certain. There is no doubt, because the first question was never asked. Having finally been wholly answered, it has never been. Being alone lives in the Kingdom, where everything lives in God without question. The time spent on questioning in the dream has given way to creation and to its eternity. You are as certain as God because you are as true as He is, but what was once certain in your mind has become only the ability for certainty. T-6.IV.7:1-6

A Course in Miracles (p. 229). Foundation for Inner Peace. Kindle Edition. 

The passage above is a very tough one to understand if the reader does not understand the metaphysics of A Course In Miracles. We are a drop of the ocean. When part of the ocean the drop does not question where one is or what one is. The drop is not even aware of its separateness until it divides itself from the ocean. Only then, in its separateness, can the drop ask, “Where am I? What am I?”

In Unitarian Universalism some of us covenant together to affirm and promote the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. In the application of this principle we become aware of our participation in the non dualistic Oneness which is the source of our inherent worth and dignity.

Today it is suggested that we reflect on where we are and what we are. We are stardust congealed into a physical form we call a body. The physical body, though, is not who we are. The physical body is merely the container that channels the Force of the universe.
