Removing the blocks to the awareness of Love’s presence

The purpose of the Atonement is to restore everything to you; or rather, to restore it to your awareness. You were given everything when you were created just as everything was. T-1.IV.3:6-7

As it is written in the introduction to the Course “It does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance”. Intro: 6-7

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. This is a helpful suggestion but it follows from the previous ten steps which suggest ways of removing the blocks to this conscious contact with God. The program benefits best when it is worked as a whole.

In Unitarian Universalism people covenant together to affirm and promote a love for the interdependent web of all existence of which human beings are a part. This principle encourages members to view the whole, the holy, and not just the separate parts. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts and in that realization separation is healed and the Atonement is experienced.

Today, declutter, purify, liberate yourself from the separate aspects of your experience, your monkey mind, and rest in the Unconditional Love of God.
