The Holy Spirit looks through me today.
Comedian Flip Wilson, when he did his Geraldine routine, would have her say, “What you see is what you get!” This statement is more correct if she were to say, “What you think you see is what you get!”
Today’s lesson reminds us that we can look through the eyes of the ego or the eyes of the Spirit. The choice is ours. Today, we ask to look through the eyes of the Spirit and thereby save ourselves and the world.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we seek to improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and mediation. We might add that we can ask the Holy Spirit for help. It is suggested, in step two, that we come to believe that there is a Power greater than ourselves that can restore us to sanity. In step three, we are encouraged to decide to turn our willfulness over to the care of God as we understand God.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote a love for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part and when we do this we transcend the world of the ego and see the world with more loving eyes of the Holy Spirit.
Today, it is suggested that we remind ourselves that the Holy Spirit looks through me today. All we have to do is to ask ourselves, “What would Love have me see?”
