UUs don't believe in victimhood

Sometimes we all love to play the victim. Some of us more of the time that others. For some it is their default position in life. When people habitually play the victim the ego has conquered their lives and made their lives a hell.

As a child of God none of us are victims except in our own minds. Our victimhood is a figment of our ego's imagination. Victimhood is not are true state. It is written in A Course In Miracles, "Teach no one he has hurt you, for if you do, you teach yourself that what is not of God has power over you. The causeless cannot be." T-14.III.8:2-3

Rather than victimhood, we can call upon the Holy Spirit for guidance in helping us achieve an awareness of our true invulnerability as spiritual creatures inhabiting, temporarily, bodies that get caught up in drama of attack and suffering on the ego plane but which is not real in the spiritual realm.

People who have achieved an intermediate level of spiritual maturity know that they are never victims except in their own insane mistaken beliefs.

For today rise above the baloney and hurt, and return evil with love knowing that the evil is not real and its only power to hurt you spiritually and psychologically is the power you give to it.

Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. This affirmation and promotion involves the belief that people are so much more than the trauma they have been victimized by. There is a fine line between compassion and pity. Pity is condescending, patronizing, demeaning, and disrespectful whereas compassion is respectful and empowering in perceiving the inviolability of the divine spark within each one of us.

  2. Recognition that bullshit is bullshit is a sign of spiritual maturity. It never ceases to amaze how many people take it seriously. Laughing at nonsense keeps you from crying.
