The hush of Heaven holds my heart today.
If we understand that “God” is the non dualistic Oneness, we understand that there is really no division, no separation, no individuation. These separate “things,” the object being perceived by the subject, is all a lie. At the fundamental essence of Life, it is all one thing. Understanding this, the noise disappears and the hush of magnanimous emptiness arises which was always there, just hidden by the creations of the ego mind designed to hide it.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, we are encouraged in step eleven to improve our consciousness of this non dualistic Oneness. In AA they say “easy does it” and “let go and let god” and “one day at a time.” With all these slogans, AA counsels us to hush.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and at the end of the search we find the peace of emptiness of the infinite hush.
Today, we are encouraged to enjoy the hush of Heaven which holds our hearts. Quiet our minds, and experience our soul enjoying the peace of the Divine.
