Clinging is not good for the soul.

Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be.
The future is not ours to see.
Que sera, sera.

Kurt Vonnegut's tag line was, "And so it goes..."

Things come and things go. They come into being and go out of existence riding on the winds and waves of Tao.

The Buddhists tell us not to become attached. Attachment causes suffering, and yet we become attached any way. For some people, change is much harder than others. The clingers have it tough. Things have to be wrenched away from them. Things have to be pried lose.

Unitarian Universalists are more likely to go with the flow. They covenant together to affirm and promote the responsible search for truth and meaning knowing that truth and meaning is in flux. Unitarian Universalists know that life is about the journey not the destination. Unitarian Universalists are not interested in getting people into heaven but heaven into people.

And then, when it is all said and done, there is the Unitarian Univeralist abiding faith in the love for the interdependent web of existence of which we are just a part going along on a magic carpet ride through life attempting to balance in the center of it all.
