You are a mirror of truth, in which God Himself shines in perfect light. To the ego’s dark glass you need but say, “I will not look there because I know these images are not true.” Then let the Holy One shine on you in peace, knowing that this and only this must be. His Mind shone on you in your creation and brought your mind into being. His Mind still shines on you and must shine through you. Your ego cannot prevent Him from shining on you, but it can prevent you from letting Him shine through you. T-4.IV.9: 1 = 6

John Buehens when he was president of the Unitarian Universalists Association is said to have said when people told him they were atheists, “What god is it that you don’t believe in?”
Neale Donald Walsh, the author of the Conversations With God books, has said something like, “If you don’t like the word ‘god’ substitute the word ‘life.’” One might not believe in some god or other but they cannot deny a belief in life while they are living.
Today’s passage points out that we are creations of the Life force. We can be distracted and give our attention to the things of the ego which blocks our awareness of the Unconditional Love of the Life force but, though distracted and unaware, it doesn’t change the fact that we are manifestations of the Life within us.
Unitarian Universalists know this because they join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which comes from the Life which we all share and is the Ground of our being.
