In the end will it all be okay?
Jesus tells us to love our enemies, to do good to those who persecute us.
Gandhi said that "an eye for eye makes us both blind."
The Tao Te Ching says, "Accept disgrace willingly. Accept misfortune as the human condition."
The bumper sticker says, "Shit happens."
Another bumper sticker says, "Mega shit happens."
Living with an ego and a body we are consumed by fears.
Embarking on a spiritual path we leave fear behind as we rise above mundane concerns and focus on the Divine embrace of the Universe.
Unitarian Universalists who commit themselves to the covenant based on the seven principles have recognized a Higher Power of Universal Unconditional Love that whispers to us gently, "It's all okay in the interdependent web of existence of which we are just a small part."
