If I am bound, my Father is not free.
Am I a body with a soul or a soul with a body? The correct answer is a soul with a body. The body does not bind me; my soul is free.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which frees our soul to travel beyond our limiting bodies. We are free to explore, learn, understand, and love.
Today, it is suggested that we remind ourselves that our souls are not limited but free to seek and unite with the Divine. We laugh as we remind ourselves that if we are bound, then God is not free and how could that be possible?
