Love, which created me, is what I am.
People are like onions with layer upon layer upon layer of circles of privacy until we get to the core, the heart of our existence. And when we descend into our being what do we find? Not what we are fearing but a brilliant diamond of perfect love. This is our essential nature.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. We eschew the idols of the world promising to make us happy and seek peace and joy elsewhere. What we learn is that the idols of the world have been blocking our awareness of Love, the true Source of our happiness, which is our essential nature and birthright.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and happiness. And where should we search for that truth and happiness? Not in the external world of the ego for it is not to be found there. It is within in the awareness of our essential nature.
Today, it is suggested that we begin and end the day, and hourly in between, with reminding ourselves that Love, which created me, is what I am. May that peace that awareness brings be with you.
