In Alcoholics Anonymous the eleventh step is “sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.” Reviewing the lessons for today and the eleventh step all that can be said is “Wow!”
Is God in your mind? Have you remembered Him or are you continually distracted by the idols of the ego?
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. In this search, we try to remember the Divine Spark which we have buried deep within us as we have engaged in attack thoughts. We have focused on our fears, resentments, anger, grievances, and have forgotten that there is a whole other world from which we emerged and to which we are going. We, usually, are living in the hell we have created for ourselves and others.
When we get tired of living in hell, it dawns on us that there must be a better way. It is with this dawning that we begin our search. In our searching we become more determined to see things differently. Increasingly, the Divine is in our mind and because our awareness of the Divine has been enhanced we start to see the Divine in everything we experience.
