What has been making you sick?



Miracles rearrange perception and place all levels in true perspective. This is healing because sickness comes from confusing levels. T-1.1.23: 1-2


A miracle is a shift in perception from the world of the ego to the world of the spirit, or from the world of conditional love to a world of unconditional love. Distress and suffering comes from confusing the two different types of love.


In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in the first step, that we admit that in the world of the ego our lives have become unmanageable. Living in the world of the ego has made us sick. We are encouraged, in step three, to make a decision to turn our willfulness and our lives over to the care of God. In other words, we are encouraged to leave behind the world of the ego and choose the world of unconditional love.


In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth. This requires that we move from the world of conditional love to the world of unconditional love. The first world is the world of the ego and the second is the world of God. It is suggested that we become God-like.


Today, we become aware of the two levels which we operate on: the world of the ego and the world of the Spirit. The miracle occurs when we choose the world of the Spirit and leave the confusion of the levels which has made us sick behind.
