The choice is ours: world of the ego or world of Spirit?

Perfect love casts out fear. If fear exists, then there is not perfect love. But: only perfect love exists. If there is fear, it produces a state that does not exist. T-1.VI.5:4-8 A Course In Miracles

Many times in these commentaries the juxtaposition of unconditional love and conditional love has been mentioned. Conditional love is always tinged with fear while unconditional love is fearless. If you experience fear, it is an indication of a belief in things that are of the ego and do not actually exist.

The Universalists taught that God is Unconditional Love in contrast with the Calvanists who taught that God’s love is conditional. Unitarian Universalists affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which is based on the Creator’s unconditional love for the Creator’s creations.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God which requires a shift in our focus from the world of conditional love to unconditional love or from the world of the ego to the world of Spirit.

Today, we remind ourselves we have a choice in which world we want to live: the world of the ego and conditional love or the world of Spirit and unconditional love. This is a choice we have to remind ourselves of constantly by asking the question, “What would Love have me do?”
