You are the Kingdom of Heaven, but you have let the belief in darkness enter your mind and so you need a new light. The Holy Spirit is the radiance that you must let banish the idea of darkness. His is the glory before which dissociation falls away, and the Kingdom of Heaven breaks through into its own. Before the separation you did not need guidance. You knew as you will know again, but as you do not know now. T-5.II.4: 1 - 5

Before we were separated from the non dual Oneness of God, we were not aware of our separateness. Many, at lower levels of consciousness, still do not know that they are separate from the non dual Oneness of God and they think that the shadows they see on the cave walls are real. Every now and then, though, we get an inkling that there must be more to life than just that which we have created. When we act on this inkling, and begin our search for something more, the Holy Spirit enters our heart and the Holy Spirit having come, we can, if we wish, ask for guidance. We can simply ask, “What would Love have me do?”
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This search is best done in meditation, a going inward, to become one with that from which we emerged at our separation.
Today, we quiet ourselves in silence, slow our breathing, and just watch with amusement the chatter of our monkey mind without judgment. Slowly the chatter diminishes in volume and intensity and peace and well being arises. In these moments we are not just in the kingdom of heaven, we are the Kingdom of Heaven..
