I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
Review of lesson # 198 - Only my condemnation injures me.
As human beings we judge, we compare, we contrast, we compete, and those found deficient or less than we condemn and consider not worthy or as good as and we feel superior. Today’s lesson teaches that this comparison and condemnation rather than help me become my better self often harms me by looking down on my fellows and excluding them to an inferior class instead of joining with them for the good of the whole.
It is suggested in Alcoholic Anonymous in step twelve that we carry our spiritual awakening to all people for in helping others we help ourselves.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth. For in lifting up others, all are uplifted, and in condemning others, the whole of humanity is injured.
Today, it is suggested that we take fifteen minutes at the beginning and end of the day, and many times in between, to consider the idea that my condemnation injures me. To recognize that we are all one is the path to peace and joy.
