Rest in the Tao.

I have stated that the basic concepts referred to in this course are not matters of degree. Certain fundamental concepts cannot be understood in terms of opposites. It is impossible to conceive of light and darkness or everything and nothing as joint possibilities. They are all true or all false. It is essential that you realize your thinking will be erratic until a firm commitment to one or the other is made. A firm commitment to darkness or nothingness, however, is impossible. No one has ever lived who has not experienced some light and some thing. No one, therefore, is able to deny truth totally, even if he thinks he can. T-3.II.1:1-8

Truth has no opposite. It simply is whether we are aware of it or not.

In Alcoholics Anonymous, it is suggested in step five, that we finally admit the truth to God and another human being. The truth will set us free from the conditioning of the ego so we can enter into the embrace of Unconditional Love.

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which is to be found in our hearts when we become aware of our natural inheritance which is unconditional love as the Universalists taught a few centuries ago.

Today, it is suggested that we give up the struggle between dichotomies, the yin and the yang,  that do not exist, and rest in the Tao.
