The saying which comes from “the rooms” (AA, Alcoholic Anonymous) is, “If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.”.
People like to whine, playing the victim, “Why do these things always happen to me?”
People don’t change usually until they get desperate and then they exclaim, “There must be a better way.”
Good news. There is. But it’s nothing you can come up with by yourself. You have turn your will over to your Higher Power and ask for help. This makes you feel vulnerable so most people don’t and won’t do it until they have no other choice.
Today’s lesson is a gentle reminder that there is another way of looking at the world.
Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. People don’t start searching until they feel stuck in the same old rut and then it dawns on them that there may be another way of looking at the world. With that dawning the search begins.
