Release from fear is a miracle.


Miracles are a way of earning release from fear. Revelation induces a state in which fear has already been abolished. Miracles are thus a means and revelation is an end. T-1.1.28:1-3


A miracle is a decision to shift one’s perception from the world of the ego to the world of Unconditional Love. When this decision is made and the shift occurs, fear disappears and the peace of revelation of God’s Unconditional Love for us is realized.


In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. This improvement in our conscious contact eradicates fear and Unconditional Love is realized. We feel like the abolishment of fear and the realization of peace is a miracle.


In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part and as this respect increases fear subsides and peace takes its place.


Today, as we renew our decision to focus on the world of Unconditional Love instead of the world of the ego, we recognize and acknowledge the abiding peace of God which is our natural inheritance. This recognition and acknowledgement seems like a miracle.
