You are my goal, my Father. Only You.
What does the soul yearn for? Reunification with its Divine Source. The soul yearns for this beyond the body’s desire for happiness and immortality. Are you a soul in a body or a body with a soul? Once you understand your soul’s (heart’s) desire, you can bring your body, mind, and soul into alignment and finally recognize the only thing that matters. Ultimately, the only thing that matters is the reunification with the Divine Source from which our egos have separated. Understanding this we can say, “You are my goal, my Father. Only You.”
In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God. The desire for this improvement involves knowing that our primary goal is the reunification with the Divine which brings peace and bliss.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. What is it that we are ultimately searching for? A person who has reached advanced stages of maturity is yearning for reunification with the Divine which is the fountain of truth and meaning.
Today, it is suggested that we remind ourselves continually that what really matters is not the mundane practicalities of life which must be attended to if we are to care for the body, but the yearning of the soul which is to experience the Divine Presence.
