Trust that unconditional love never fails.

A miracle is never lost. It may touch many people you have not even met, and produce undreamed of changes in situations of which you are not even aware. T-1.1.45:1-2

The shift in perception from conditional love to unconditional love is like throwing a rock into a pond which causes a splash and then concentric circles of ripples that extend outward moving through the whole body of water. The changes made in the pond cannot be seen, heard, or sensed completely and they emanate unperceived through the space. Unconditional love is like the rock. We cannot know the influence it has on the world but we trust that it has salutorious effects.

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step twelve, that we carry the message of the power of the program to induce a spiritual awakening for the world of humanity. How the message moves and the influence it has we can never know, but it is trust that we have that the seeds we sow will germinate and grow and bear blossoms and fruit.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to accept one another and encourage spiritual growth that contributes to an actualization of the potential of humanity to realize that we are One.

Today, we generate a confidence in the idea that unconditional love is never lost but in miraculous ways creates changes for the better in a myriad of situations and lives.
