Is humanity the manifestation of Love in the Universe?

The Tao is the essence of existence from which the ten thousand things arise.

We watch the ten thousand things come and go like the news cycles of cable news. Here today, gone tomorrow. From where did the drama come and to where does it go?

Emotional arousal is like the phases of the moon: it waxes and wanes. It is like the tides of the ocean: it rises and falls.

The one constant thing is the Tao, existence, which is eternal. We are born and we die but the Tao of which we are a part is forever.

Unitarian Univeralists know about the ground of our being which we affirm and promote in our seventh principle which is to respect the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Instead of "respect", the word should be "love" for Love is what we are and of which we are a manifestation in the universe.

  1. The commentary on the Tao Te Ching and relating it to Unitarian Universalism has been fun and interesting. This blog is wonderful because of its inspiration and the adventure of never quite knowing what I will find here next.
