Miracles are seen in light.
A miracle is a shift in perception from the world of the ego to the world of the Spirit. Are you a body with a soul or a soul with a body? The answer to this question makes all the difference.
If you say that you are a body with a soul you dwell in darkness in the world of the ego. If, however, you say you are a soul with a body you are miracle-ready moving into the light where the world of the Spirit is in your line of vision.
Today’s lesson tells us that the Light is always there, but the clouds of darkness hide the light from us. When we get above the clouds, the light illuminates a shift in consciousness which is called miraculous.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, we are told in step eleven that through prayer and meditation we can improve our conscious contact with our Higher Power (the Light) asking to understand It’s will and the power to carry it out. In AA we rise above the darkness by turning our will over to our Higher Power by letting go and letting God.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which is in the light if we can get past the darkness which enshrouds many people and blocks our perception of it. When we practice looking above the darkness we find the crack where the light comes in. And as we become aware the source of light grows and we find a miraculous sense of peace and bliss.
Today we are asked to take ten minutes three times and look above the clouds of darkness for the light. We are asked to accept that this light is our true home which has always been there but which we could not see because our vision was clouded by the barriers and obstacles of the ego.
