What do we long for?
We long for Godliness, for wholeness, for nondualistic Oneness.
From the point of view of evolution, humanity is the bridge in consciousness between the separation from the Oneness and the rejoining with the Oneness which is the culmination of the evolution of consciousness in the Universe.
This evolutionary trajectory requires that humanity shed its egos. Humans have to become discontent with their lives and come to an awareness that there is a better way to live their lives. The dawning leads to a search away from our egos to a nondualistic awareness of the source of our being.
"Do you meditate," Linda asked?
"I try," David said, "but I don't get very far. It is hard for me to clear my mind of the constant chatter."
"Uuuuuuum, " Linda murmured as she shook her head, yes, in a knowing and understanding way.
Unitarian Univerasalists covenant together to affirm and promote the respect for interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part, and it is more than "respect," it is love and awareness of. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts and it is in merging with the whole that Godliness is experienced and achieved.
