Truth in our post truth world feels like a miracle.

Miracles reawaken the awareness that the spirit, not the body, is the altar of truth. This is the recognition that leads to the healing power of the miracle. T-1.1.20:1-2

The spirit is of the mind not the body. It is the spirit in the mind that is the altar of truth. Truth, goodness, and beauty reside in the Infinite Presence.

In Alcoholics Anonymous we are encouraged in step eleven to improve our conscious contact with God after having decided in step three to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understand God. We have come to understand that it is in joining with the will of God that we find truth.

In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. The truth and meaning that we seek resides in the infinite presence of spirit not in the body. If we are to find truth and meaning we must give up our attachment to the idols of the ego. Giving up these attachments we become aware of Love’s presence which is our natural inheritance.

Today, it is suggested that we be aware of where truth lies. It is not in the things of the world. Truth resides in spirit and the experience of it feels like a miracle.
