Today's lesson - Let your little light shine along with the Tao of Creation.
Today's lesson is number 73 in A Course In Miracles which is "I will there be light."
The "light" being referred to comes from within not from without.
The "light" is the holiness that you have forgotten is the essence of your being.
We access this light when we bring our will into alignment with God's will for me and God's creation.
In Unitarian Univeralism, this light is the awarenss of our innate holiness and what Universalists teach is universal salvation. This salvation is Unconditional Love of creation.
Unitarian Univeralists recognize this light in all of God's creation when they covenant together to affirm and promote their third principle which is the acceptance of another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations and throughout all of God's creation.
Our mission statement at UU A Way of Life ministries is to "sanctify the world by helping people become aware of their holiness." One way of pursuing this mission is to recognize, acknowledge, and extend the light with us based on our Oneness with the Tao and flowing with Our will for creation.
This practice involves giving up our grievances and sense of victimhood. We are presented with forgivness opportunities many times duing the day when we can choose either the darkness, resentments, anger, bitterness, and fear of the path of the ego, or the light, remembrance, joy, and peace of the Tao.
