I will not value what is valueless
When you choose to do things are you trying to serve the ego’s purposes or the Spirit’s? Are you feeling guilty because you are taking away from someone else? Are you uneasy because you know what you have chosen has only temporary value? If the answer is “yes” to these questions, you have chosen wrong because you are valuing the valueless.
In the fifth step of Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested that we admit to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the bad choices we have made. In other words, own up, face up, speak up, and choose again.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. To apply this principle we must choose rightly by valuing only what is valuable which are things of the Spirit (Love), things which are permanent, and things which are beneficial to all.
Today, it is suggested that we take 15 minutes twice to reflect on our desire and intention to only value the valuable and to not value the valueless. Life is not complicated. It can be very simple if we learn how to discern what is valuable from valueless.
