The calm being of God’s Kingdom, which in your sane mind is perfectly conscious, is ruthlessly banished from the part of the mind the ego rules. The ego is desperate because it opposes literally invincible odds, whether you are asleep or awake. Consider how much vigilance you have been willing to exert to protect your ego, and how little to protect your right mind. Who but the insane would undertake to believe what is not true, and then protect this belief at the cost of truth? T-4.III.10: 1 - 4

The ego would have us believe that the Kingdom of God is not true and yet it dawns on us sooner or later, one way or another, come hell or high water that there is a better way than the way of the ego, and at this point the search begins for truth and meaning.
Today, it is suggested that we reflect on the fourth principle of Unitarian Universalism which is the affirmation and promotion of the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This search takes us within and not without. Sit quietly. Clear one’s mind of the myriad thoughts of the ego, and experience the calm being of God’s kingdom.
