If you would have Love you must let go of the things of the ego.

 Topic Ten


If you would have Love you must let go of the things of the ego.


Miracles are everyone’s right, but purification is necessary first.” T-1.1.7:1


The miracle is a shift in perception from the world of the ego to the world of the Spirit. This shift is everyone’s right, but for it to occur two things have to happen; First the person has to know that there is a choice between ego and Love and secondly, a person can’t have both. If the person would have Love they must purify their mind by letting go of the ego.


In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step three, that we make a decision to turn our willfulness over to the care of God as we understand God.


In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This search requires a letting go as much as a curiosity about our Transcendent Source. All the major world religions teach that we can’t have both. It is this letting go of the things of the ego which the Course names “purification.”


Today, it is suggested that we purify our minds by forgiving all the people and circumstances that we hold responsible for our unhappiness. It is time for us to experience miracles.
