Today's lesson, number 84, "Love created me like itself," and "Love holds no grievances."
We are a part of God, a drop in the ocean, here to extend Love to the rest of God's creation. If I am to do this on the path of the Spirit instead of the path of the ego, I must give up my grievances for Unconditional Love has no grievances.
Unitarian Univeralists promise to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person, a principle which is very contrary to the ego which sees differences and makes judgments every where it looks.
If I am to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person, I must start with myself because as the lesson today says, "Love created me like itself." I am a part of God. I am God's Love in the world, the incarnation of that love.
If I am to love unconditionally as the Universalists have taught and believe then I promote and affirm universal salvation and hold no grievances toward anyone or anything.
Wow! Would that I could.
Today I will try to remember that I am a child of God and that God being Unconditional Love, I hold no grievances.
As Unitarian Universalists like to say, "Blessed be." We are already blessed but we have forgotten. The ego has cast a veil over our awareness. The saying therefore might be better said, "Blessed by my awareness of my holiness." That is, "Blessed by my awareness of my inherent worth and dignity and everybody else's."
