The original sin was separating ourselves from the Oneness and thinking we are the author of our own existence.
In AA, we came to admit that being the author of our own life is unmanageable. It is what the Course calls a tiny mad idea. At many times, the Course calls the thinking of the ego “insane.”
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to respect the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Realizing this, we let go and let God and we make a decision to turn our lives over to the non dualistic Oneness of which we are a part. As we come to this realization we come to understand that “my holiness envelops everything I see.”
Today, we are asked to take four practice periods of 3 or 4 minutes and just scan our external world and internal world and say to ourselves, “My holiness envelops that car, that bed, that tree, that bus driver, that cashier, my partner, my big toe on my right foot.” And then we laugh and enjoy the peace and joy which floods our being.
