The truth behind illusions
T-30.IV.4. Reality observes the laws of God, and not the rules you set. It is His laws that guarantee your safety. All illusions that you believe about yourself obey no laws. They seem to dance a little while, according to the rules you set for them. But then they fall and cannot rise again. They are but toys, my child, so do not grieve for them.
A Course in Miracles . Foundation for Inner Peace. P.634
This is, of course, the laws of God and the laws of the world. We follow most often the laws of the world which are also called the laws of idols like money, sex, power, fame, status, etc. We falsely believe that it is these things we idolize which will make us happy but as it says in the quote above our believe that these things can bring us happiness falls apart and what are we left with back at the drawing board so to speak? It’s the laws of God, of course. We have ignored them and repressed them and when we have hit bottom it dawns on us that must be a better way. And then we begin our search for what is really important.
Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. We will never find what we are looking for in the laws of the world, in the world of idols. What we are looking for is in the world of God, the Tao, the Oneness, that makes us whole as we realize the interdependent existence of which we are apart.
