My holy Self abides in you, God’s Son.
The Divine Spark is in every one. How can we fail to see it? We aren’t looking for it because we have been blinded by anger, resentment, grievance, fear. And yet, the Divine Spark is in every one as it is in myself and it comes from the Transcendent Source.
In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we seek to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand God. If God is the Divine Source, the animating energy of the universe, the Ground of Being, what we simply call “Life,” we see God everywhere and in every thing and so we can not only say but sing, “My holy Self abides in you, God’s Son.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person and is not this inherent worth and dignity what is most important in Life and what we should pay attention to? Looking for this inherent worth and dignity we can say with great joy, “My holy Self abides in you, God’s Son.”
So today, awaken to the miracle of Life and pay attention to the awareness that there is a Divine Spark in everyone. We need to look past the barriers and obstacles to this perception, but if we look with awareness we will find it and be able to pay attention to it.
