Looking for the Divine Spark in every person.

This is because healing rests on charity, and charity is a way of perceiving the perfection of another even if you cannot perceive it in yourself. T-2,V,9:4

A Course in Miracles . Foundation for Inner Peace. Kindle Edition. 

One of the key virtues in Christianity is “caritas” which is a Latin word translated in English as “charity.” Charity, though, often is used in the context of giving financial gifts to a person or organization in need. 

In the Course, “charity” is defined as seeing the innate perfection in others, their inherent worth and dignity as the Unitarian Universalists name it in their first principle.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested in step twelve that we carry our spiritual awakening to others. This often happens when we don’t completely experience our spiritual awakening within ourselves.

Today, we will look for the Divine Spark in every person we encounter.
