Lesson # 12
I am upset because I see a meaningless world.
The world I see that is meaningless and upsets me is because of my projection.
Do circumstances influence my perceptions or do my perceptions influence the circumstances? We are taught and socially conditioned to think the former while the latter is the truth. If we live by the former assumption we live as victims and victimhood in the realm of the soul is an illusion. We Universalists know this. We know that we are loved unconditionally by a loving Creator. Hell is what we have made in the world of the ego on earth, but we know there is another dimension, another reality which transcends the meaningless world of the ego which will so upset us if we let it.
Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This search can take us beyond the meaningless world that upsets us so to the world of the soul where there is peace and bliss.
