It is impossible to see two worlds.
The Course is really very simple. It teaches that we have a simple choice: the path of the ego or the path of the Spirit. It’s like heads and tails of a coin. There are, in the end only two choices. The Course teaches that one choice for the ego is based on illusion and comes with anguish, suffering, fear, and guilt. The choice for the Spirit comes with Unconditional Love, peace, and bliss. It’s possible for us to choose which we want. Today’s lesson teaches that we can’t have both; we must choose one or the other.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested in the third step that we choose to turn our will, our willfulness, over to our Transcendent Source. It is the willingness to do so that creates a miracle in our lives.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. UUs know that “truth” can’t be imposed by external authority but must be discovered by a personal interior search which takes us to the Transcendent Ultimate. UUs learn in their searching that the idols of the ego are not the source of truth and meaning but counterfeit fool’s gold. As UUs pan for golden nuggets they come to find and realize that riches are to be found in Love on the path of the Spirit and not in the dirt and detritus of the path of the ego.
Today, we are asked to take 5 minutes six times and admit that it is impossible to see two worlds. We have the power to choose. Which will it be? It’s impossible to see two worlds.
