Review of lessons 61 and 62
61 I am the light of the world.
62 Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
The ideas for review today are just wonderful. Awesome. As we consider these ideas we realize that we have forgotten who we really are. We, like onions, have layers and layers of conditioning and socialization which has covered and buried our essence.
In the sixth step of Alcoholics Anonymous we are asked to declare that we are ready for God to remove all our defects of character. We ask our Higher Power to come into our lives and give us the willingness and ability to forgive ourselves, others, and circumstances which we think we are victimized by.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person beginning with ourselves. As we recognize and acknowledge and accept our inherent worth and dignity the light comes on and we realize that we are not only no longer victims but the agent of our divine source dispensing forgiveness as we go.
Today, take 2 10 - 15 minute periods to dwell in the light and activate the forgiveness which proceeds from it. Sing the old spiritual, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.”
