Looking for the Divine Spark is sometimes like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I have said that you cannot change your mind by changing your behavior, but I have also said, and many times, that you can change your mind. When your mood tells you that you have chosen wrongly, and this is so whenever you are not joyous, then know this need not be. T-4.IV.2: 1 - 2

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

In this passage, Jesus reminds us that we can always change our minds and focus on the Voice of God rather than on the voice of the ego. The question we can ask ourselves is “What would love have me do?” Does the answer spark joy or distress?

Today, we can reflect on the first of the seven principles of Unitarian Universalism which is to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. If we look for the Divine Spark in every person we can find it even if it is like looking for a needle in the haystack.
