Salvation comes from my one Self
In today’s lesson we are asked to choose between the way of the ego or the way of Spirit. We make life so complicated, but it is really very simple. Do we choose fear or Love? Fear drives us to the idols of the ego while Love is the Source of our salvation.
In Alcoholics Anonymous we are asked to admit that we are powerless and that our lives have become unmanageable. Many people balk at this idea and say it just isn’t so and continue on until they hit bottom. When they hit bottom, they become desperate, and finally realize that to turn their will over to their Higher Power seems to be their last ditch possibility for salvation. It is in accepting the Love of our Higher Power instead of our own ego that our lives miraculously change.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This search is inward and upward not outward and downward. As Leonard Cohen tells us in his great song Anthem that the crack is where the light comes in.
Today we are asked to take five minutes at the beginning of every hour and relax and look inward for the crack where the light comes in and in so doing we realize that salvation comes from our Oneness with the All.
