Do you want a piece or the whole?

Wholeness is the perceptual content of miracles. They thus correct, or atone for, the faulty perception of lack. T-1.1.41:1-2

The miracle is the shift in perception from the world of ego which is a world of separation, division, scarcity, and lack to the world of Spirit which is a world of wholeness, abundance, and fulfillment.

In Alcoholic Anonymous, in step eleven, it is suggested that we improve our conscious contact with God. This conscious contact with God instead of the ego is a choice we always have. We have not always been aware of our choice, but now that we are as the result of the program, we know that we have the power in our minds to choose either ego or Spirit.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and this search takes us eventually from the world of the ego to the world of Spirit. When we arrive in the world of Spirit we become joyously aware of the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

Today, we have a decision to make: do we focus on lack or fullness, separation or union, pieces or the whole?
