The specialness of God’s Sons (daughters) does not stem from exclusion but from inclusion. All my brothers (sisters) are special. If they believe they are deprived of anything, their perception becomes distorted. When this occurs the whole family of God, or the Sonship,(Personship) is impaired in its relationships. T-1.V. 3:5-8 A Course In Miracles.
The children of God are each special and unique and have been created for a purpose which is to complement the whole. Each has a function to perform in bringing about the Atonement. Each is a drop in the ocean. Each drop is the ocean..
In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God by recognizing that we are not separate but a part of the oceanic consciousness of our Transcendent Source.
In Unitarian Universalism we affirm and promote the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Today it is suggested that we contemplate the paradox that our specialness comes from being a part of the whole which makes us holy like everybody else.
