Only an instant does this world endure.
One of the key concepts of A Course In Miracles is the idea that we live in two worlds: the world of the ego and the world of the Spirit(Love). Today we are reminded that only an instant does the world of the ego endure and then we are free to join the world of the Spirit if we choose.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation, what today is also called mindfulness.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote seven principles and it is by joining with others in this effort that we bypass the world of the ego and engage in the world of the Spirit.
Today, we can comfort ourselves by reminding ourselves that only an instant does this world of the ego endure. We are free to refocus on the world of Spirit anytime we choose. We are reminded of the saying when we are afraid, resentful, angry, guilt ridden that “this, too, shall pass” for only an instant does this bullshit endure.
