No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.
One of the seven principles of Unitarian Universalism is to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning, It is written in today’s lesson in A Course In Miracles, “Yet searching is inevitable here. For this you came, and you will surely do the thing you came for. But the world cannot dictate the goal for which you search unless you give it the power to do so.”
The point seems to be that we all search during our lifetimes and the question is what is the goal? If we don’t know the goal, we don’t know where to search.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested in step four, that we do a fearless moral inventory to determine what mistakes we have made and where we have gone wrong. How can you change or fix something if you haven’t identified what has been in error?
Today, it is suggested that we take 10 minutes three times, go within and search for the truth, putting all the things of the ego world aside. Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Ponder on today’s lesson, No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.
