Today’s lesson seems impossible and nonsensical if one is thinking of doing magic in the ego world. Being a superhero with superpowers is the stuff of comic book characters and now movies which bring them to life in cinema.
Jesus is often depicted as a superhero who can walk on water, heal the sick, raise the dead, turn water into wine and perform all kinds of magic tricks as if He were a Las Vegas nightclub performer
Manipulating the laws of nature in the ego world is not what is being alluded to here. This lesson refers to the world of the soul not the world of the ego. Once we get rid of the ego and return to the Oneness from which we have separated ourselves we come to realize that, being part of the All, there is nothing we cannot do.
This returning to an awareness of the non dualistic Oneness is what is called “enlightenment” and when we become one with the All we realize that on the spiritual plane holiness heals whatever ails us.
In step two in twelve step programs we come to realize that a Power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity. With this realization and acceptance, we gratefully acknowledge that there is nothing than my holiness cannot do.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and the encouragement to spiritual growth which leads to the realization that there is nothing my holiness cannot do.
We are asked today to take 5 minutes, 4 times during the day to review our external and internal circumstances and experiences and say to ourselves, “There is nothing that my holiness cannot do.” We come to realize that healing occurs in our minds and hearts not in the ego world.
