Lesson 66: My happiness and my function are one.
I just love how logical the Course is. It is always offering the Truth as given by God.
God would necessarily be logical, because God is perfect.
Therefore, the Truth is easier to understand I think, because of the degree of logic in general in the Course.
This lesson reminds us, “God cannot give what He does not have, and He cannot have what He is not. Unless God gives you only happiness, He must be evil. And it is this definition of Him you are believing if you do not accept the first premise.”
This is so cool to finally get to the Truth in general, and the Truth God Wills for us.
I feel like the logic of the Course makes God easier to digest for me.
I certainly had baggage growing up in the Catholic church, and other Christian religions, where their idea about God was that God deems us sinners, and that God is out to punish us- either in this lifetime, or in eons of burning in Purgatory, after death.
In the religions I was exposed to and went to services there, I learned that God was not my best friend, and that God’s Will was many other things primarily.
But most definitely, I did not believe there that God’s primary wish for me and others is that we are happy. That was totally a stretch for my imagination.
I love the way the Course totally changes my mind about how God is in general, but specifically about me, and about God’s wishes for me.
The way the Course explains our function is incredibly cool, and way easier for me to believe.
Because it is so logical, it makes a truly valid case for my happiness and my function from God- being one and the same.
This is not just putting the two concepts in conjunction with each other, but actually claiming that my happiness and my function are actually one.
This makes me feel so much lighter about God, because I feel easier energetically, knowing that God wants me to believe and adopt wholeheartedly-that happiness is my right and Purpose and it is fundamentally my function.
Is is easier to make a point about remembering to be happy, when I know that THIS IS God’s number one Will for me and all.
So then, I will have more success and keeping this in my awareness.
