Review of lessons 67 and 68
67 - Love created me like Itself.
68 - Love holds no grievances
Are you a body with a soul or a soul with a body?
After a few moments of reflection the answer comes as clear as a bell to most people.
People are like onions with layer upon layer upon layer of socialization and conditioning to be dug through until we arrive at our heart which is a brilliant diamond shining with all its lustrous beauty. Love, God, the Oness, the Ground Of Our Being, the Force, our Higher Power, whatever we choose to call it, is who we really are, is our Essence.
In Alcoholics Anonymous, we are encouraged in step eleven to seek through prayer and meditation conscious contact with God as we understand God and to bring our will into alignment with what we believe is God’s will for us and the power to carry that out. As St. Paul writes in one of his letters to the Corinthians, “If God is with you, who can be against you?”
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which includes ourselves. We are not inherently defective and inadequate, born with original sin as some religions teach, but the opposite, inherently holy and beautiful, a manifestation of our Source.
Today, we are asked to take 10 - 15 minutes twice and many times during the day to remember who we really are and from whence we have emerged in this incarnation.
