Look at your life and see what the devil has made.

Look at your life and see what the devil has made. But realize that this making will surely dissolve in the light of truth, because its foundation is a lie. Your creation by God is the only Foundation that cannot be shaken, because the light is in it. T-3.VII.5:3-5

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

Once a person understands the metaphysics of A Course In Miracles, the verses in the text can make the reader laugh. As Flip Wilson, the comedian, used to say through his Geraldine character, “The devil made me do it” we, once we understand the teachings of the Course, can say continually, “The ego made me do it.”

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step one, that our lives are unmanageable as long as we allow the ego to be in charge.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning because we have become aware that the “truth” often taught  is not the real truth. It dawns on us that there must be a better way to live our lives than what our social conditioning has attempted to get us to believe.

Today, it is suggested that we “look at our life and see what the devil has made” and ask ourselves if this is really what we want.
