I give my life to God

Lesson 233 A Course in Miracles

I give my life to God to guide today.
“Father, I give You all my thoughts today. I
would have none of mine. In place of them,
give me Your Own. I give You all my acts as
well, that I may do Your Will instead of seeking goals which cannot be obtained, and
wasting time in vain imaginings.
 Today I come to You. 
I will step back and merely follow You. Be You the Guide, 
and I the follower who questions not the wisdom of the Infinite, 
nor Love whose tenderness I cannot comprehend, 
but which is yet Your perfect gift to me.
Today we have one Guide to lead us on.
And as we walk together, we will give this
day to Him with no reserve at all. 
This is His day. 
And so it is a day of countless gifts
and mercies unto us.

Honesty - what does it mean?

The key element in the Course’s approach is honesty, which is the second of the ten characteristics of a teacher of God, discussed in the manual for teachers (M.4). Jesus states there that honesty means consistency: "There is nothing you say that contradicts what you think or do; no thought opposes any other thought..." (M.4.II.1). In other words, there is a consistency between your words (form) and your thoughts (content). If we set aside any ego investment in the situation, then only love will flow though us, and it will be expressed in a form that would be appropriate in that specific situation. The emphasis is on the content in our minds. If we are kind within, we will be kind on the outside. Our attention, thus, should be on searching for any unkindness lurking in our thoughts, and asking for help to let that go. Once we have gotten past the unkindness, whatever we say or do will be kind, in a form that is appropriate to the circumstances
