Looking for love in all the wrong places.

The children of God are entitled to the perfect comfort that comes from perfect trust. Until they achieve this, they waste themselves and their true creative powers on useless attempts to make themselves more comfortable by inappropriate means. T-2.III.5:1=2

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

A component of our faith which is nurtured by A Course In Miracles is the belief that perfect comfort, peace, comes from perfect trust in the efficacy of unconditional love which proceeds from the Creative Force which sustains us and of which we are a part. Separate, alone, we experience anguish and suffering and the attempts to create ourselves ultimately fail. The perfect comfort we seek through conditional love is futile. As we were told earlier, there is a better way.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested in step three that we make a decision to turn our willfulness over to the will of God.

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the search for truth and meaning which is not to be found in the world of the ego. We often looked for love in all the wrong places. There is perfect comfort in the perfect trust in the Atonement which is the healing of the separation.

Today, it is suggested that we step back and consider where it is we are seeking the perfect comfort which we yearn for. Have we been looking in the wrong places? Is it possible that there is a better place to search?
