Look for the Divine Spark in every living thing.

When a mind has only light, it knows only light. Its own radiance shines all around it, and extends out into the darkness of other minds, transforming them into majesty. The Majesty of God is there, for you to recognize and appreciate and know. Recognizing the Majesty of God as your brother is to accept your own inheritance. God gives only equally. If you recognize His gift in anyone, you have acknowledged what He has given you. Nothing is so easy to recognize as truth. This is the recognition that is immediate, clear and natural. You have trained yourself not to recognize it, and this has been very difficult for you. T-7.XI.5:1-9

Comedian Flip Wilson, when he did his Geraldine routine, would say, “What you see is what you get, honey!” in a sassy, mirthful way. When we have light in our soul we see that lightness all around us, and when we have darkness in our soul  we see darkness all around us. But the spark of the Divine is in everyone if we look for it. Look, it is there even if it is hidden behind barriers and obstacles.

In Unitarian Universalism some of us join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Some of us see the light within ourselves and therefore in others.

Today it is suggested that we look for the Divine Spark in every living thing.
