Do we control the universe?
The more we learn, the higher our expectations rise.
Dropping our expectations leads to wisdom.
It's not that ignorance is bliss, it is that attachment causes suffering.
If peace is the goal, turning our expectations over to Tao is the method.
The Holy Spirit knows best and will show us the way if we ask.
Jesus said, "Ask and you will receive," but few actually believe this.
Most cling to desires that corrupt one's contentment.
Go with the flow. Whatever will be, will be. The future is not ours to see.
We don't control the universe, do we?
Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning, and while searching, UUs know that Truth is not to be found in what we expect.
UUs realize that we are a part of the Interdependent Web of Existence which is beyond understanding and total control. Justice, equity, and compassion flow not from control and coercion, but from loving kindness and loving kindness is unconditional.
