There is nothing to fear; God loves you.

Miracles represent freedom from fear. “Atoning” means “undoing.” The undoing of fear is an essential part of the Atonement value of miracles. T-1.1.26:1-3

There is nothing to fear because God loves you unconditionally. It is the undoing of our fear of God’s wrath for our separation from God which is the meaning of atonement. All it takes is a choice for the world of the spirit instead of the world of the ego. Jesus taught that the way to the kingdom is to “love as I have loved.” As kids say, “Easy peasy.”

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. This is a choice we have and actions we take. Do it or not, God is always there for us. All we have to do is listen.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and this search takes us ultimately to the unconditional love of God which is found within us in our hearts as our natural inheritance once we get past the fear. When we do this, it seems like a miracle.

Today, we bypass the fear deep in our hearts to find the unconditional love of God which the Universalists have taught is there if we pay attention to it. Setting aside the fear we find the love of God which is our natural inheritance.
