Miracles should inspire gratitude, not awe. You should thank God for what you really are. The children of God are holy and the miracle honors their holiness, which can be hidden but never lost. T-1.1.31:1-3
The miracle is the shift in perception from the world of the ego to the world of love and a member of the world of love is who we really are. The world of love in our natural inheritance. When we recognize and acknowledge that we are members of the world of love we realize we are whole, holy, and have been all along. The world of the ego is an illusion, a painful one full of suffering due to our mistaken choice. As A Course In Miracles teaches over and over, “Choose again.” We get a second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth chance, however many we need to get it right.
In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step three, that we make a decision to turn our will and lives over to the care of God as we understand God to be.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. We come to realize that no individual can be an individual alone.
Today, we become grateful knowing that God’s unconditional love is ours if we choose to give up the ego and recognize our natural inheritance.
