103 - God, being love, is also happiness.
104 - I seek but what belongs to me in truth.
The ultimate existential question is “What is the good life?” In attempting to answer that question, we seek to obtain that which society has told us will make us happy. It finally dawns on us that society has lied to us. At the dawning we begin to seek a better way to achieve happiness. This search brings us to God, to our Transcendent Essence.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, the dawning and the search occurs in the first three steps. We come to realize that our life on the ego plane is unmanageable and insane. With this realization and admission we decide to turn our lives over to a search for our Transcendent Source which is where happiness is to be found.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote a love for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. This love for the interdependent web of all existence includes the inherent worth and dignity of very person. It is in loving the Body of Christ that we find happiness which in Christian theology is the Second Person in the Trinity of God.
Today, it is suggested that we begin and end our day with five minutes to reflect on the idea that God, being love, is also happiness, and that I, in seeking happiness, will find what belongs to me in truth.
