My holiness blesses the world.
In Alcoholics Anonymous the twelfth step is “Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.” In other words, having been blessed, we extend the blessing to everyone we meet. Indeed, it is a blessing to meet an AA twelfth stepper as we sense something special coming from them.
Likewise, it is wonderful to meet a Unitarian Universalist who actually implements and applies the seven principles in their daily lives where they affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and justice, equity and compassion in human relations.
We are asked today to take 4-5 minutes 3 or 4 times throughout the day and just review our external surroundings and internal states and say to ourselves, “My holiness blesses this computer keyboard, this chair, my partner, the cashier, the other drivers on the road, my doctor, the kids next door, etc.”
When our holiness blesses the world we are filled with a peace and joy which provides light to our lives and to the space around us. May your holiness bless you and the world.
