In my defenselessness my safety lies.
If we believe we are the beloved child of the Universe loved Unconditionally and things all work out in the end after the ego world dissolves, we realize we have nothing to defend. We are all okay. Always have been, are now, forever will be. The nonsense of the ego world is but a nightmare.
In Alcoholics Anonymous, in the first three steps, we came to realize that our belief and trust in the world of the ego is unmanageable and that there must be a better way. With this realization, we decided to turn our will and lives over to our Transcendent Source from which we emerged and to which we will return.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which is intrinsic and needs no defense. It is the essence of our being. How is perfection to be defended when it doesn’t require any defense in the first place?
Today, it is suggested that we take 5, 10 , 15, 30 minutes at the beginning and end of the day and any time in between to remind ourselves that we are the perfect creations of the Transcendent Source and that our inherent worth and dignity requires no defense whatsoever. In this awareness we experience great peace and bliss.
