I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
Review of lesson 189 - I feel the Love of God within me now.
We are born like a shining diamond, innocent, pure, brilliant, an extension of our Transcendent Source and then society takes over with its socialization and conditioning and our brilliant diamond becomes encrusted with dirt, slag, mud, rock and our brilliance becomes hidden, buried deep within ourselves, so deep that we not only don’t see it anymore but aren’t even aware that it exists.
Our challenge in living our lives is to move past these barriers and obstacles and once again become aware of and experience the Love of God which is within us.
In Alcoholics Anonymous, it is suggested in step eleven that we seek through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with the brilliance of the Love of God within.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which emanates from the Divine Spark within each of us.
Today, it is suggested that we begin and end our day and several times in between reflecting on the Love of God within us. This requires intention, patience, and a willingness to step back and let God lead the way.
