This is my holy instant of release.
It is funny how we make things up thinking that our willfulness can gain us anything real separated from our Source. Once we see this behavior for what it is it seems absurd, insane.
It is suggested by Alcoholics Anonymous, in the third step, that we turn our willfulness over to the Will of God. We come to realize what a mess we have made of things and that the illusory world we create for ourselves thinking it will make us happy has not only come to naught but to pain and suffering. We begin to think that there has to be a better way and there is.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. We encourage each other to find a better way and eventually we will. The outcome is inevitable but the time it takes is discretionary.
Today, it is suggested that we begin and end the day, and hourly in between,to reflect on the fact that this can be my holy instant of release.
