The light has come.
The past is gone, the future is not here yet, all we truly have is right now, that’s why it’s called “the present.”
Dwelling in the past except to learn from it is a waste of time. Worrying about the future other than to prepare oneself for future contingencies which may never happen also can be a waste of time. Center yourself, and be here now.
In Alcoholics Anonymous we are advised through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with the non dualistic Oneness of which we are a part. We are drops of the ocean. We are a ripple in the wind. What came before and what comes after only generates distress and fearfulness in our mind. We are advised to slow down and take things one day at a time. Easy does it.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth because our faith informs us of the light of the universal and unconditional love of our Higher Power.
Today we intentionally seek to look past darkness to the light and we rejoice in the peace and comfort of the Light which has come.
