Blocking our awareness of our natural inheritance.

Grace is the natural state of every Son of God. When he is not in a state of grace, he is out of his natural environment and does not function well. Everything he does becomes a strain, because he was not created for the environment that he has made. He therefore cannot adapt to it, nor can he adapt it to him. There is no point in trying. A Son of God is happy only when he knows he is with God. That is the only environment in which he will not experience strain, because that is where he belongs. It is also the only environment that is worthy of him, because his own worth is beyond anything he can make. T-7.XI.2:1-8

The gospel hymn “Amazing Grace” by John Newton brings our attention to the idea in the above passage. As human beings we are only comfortable and at peace in the state of grace which is our natural inheritance. There are so many things in the world of the ego which we put in our way to be barriers and obstacles to our awareness of our essential state.

In Unitarian Universalism some of us join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which arises from our state of grace which is our natural inheritance.

Today it is suggested that we consider our natural inheritance and what barriers and obstacles we have placed to block our awareness.
