We are encouraged to work miracles habitually.

Miracles are habits, and should be involuntary. They should not be under conscious control. Consciously selected miracles can be misguided. T-1.1.5:1-3

Salvation is when everybody loves everybody all the time. We are a long way from that evolutionary goal of humanity. A miracle is right mindedness when we are tuned into the world of Spirit (Love) and not the world of the ego. When we are tuned into the world of the Spirit miracles are habitual. They are a way of living which encompasses everyone. Miracles do not distinguish for distinguishing requires judgment, separation, and exclusion. Because of this discrimination, consciously selected miracles are misguided.

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. When we do this we are placing ourselves in the realm of miracles.

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Notice the word “every” in this principle? This affirmation and promotion is habitual and with practice becomes involuntary and is no longer under conscious control. When we become selective about whose inherent worth and dignity we promote and affirm, we become misguided. Who are we to judge and exclude?

Today, it is suggested that we give up our judgment and bless people habitually. When we become selective we become misguided and tools of the world of the ego rather than facilitators of the world of Spirit.
