Are you devoted to miracles?



Are you devoted to miracles?


Each day should be devoted to miracles. The purpose of time is to enable you to learn how to use time constructively. It is thus a teaching device and a means to an end. Time will cease when it is no longer useful in facilitating learning. T-1.1.15:1-4


A miracle is a shift in perception from the world of the ego to the world of the spirit (love.) Each day we should devote ourselves to paying attention to love. Paying attention to love is a constructive use of our time which, here in the body, is limited. The time here in the body is to be used to learn, to become consciously aware of Love’s presence and to eliminate the barriers and obstacles which prevent us from doing so. Once we have done this, time has no meaning because our awareness will have become one with our Transcendent Source, the Infinite Presence.


In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with the God of our understanding through prayer and meditation, what we call today, mindfulness. When miracle principle 15 suggests that we devote ourselves each day to miracles it is this mindfulness it is speaking of.


In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote a respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. This respect takes devotion. Miracle principle 15 suggests that each day we devote ourselves to miracles which involve an awareness of the interdependent web of existence.


Today, it is suggested that we be mindful and continually ask ourselves, “What would Love have me do?”
