United we stand and divided we fall.

The Kingdom is forever extending because it is in the Mind of God. You do not know your joy because you do not know your own Self-fullness. Exclude any part of the Kingdom from yourself and you are not whole. A split mind cannot perceive its fullness, and needs the miracle of its wholeness to dawn upon it and heal it. This reawakens the wholeness in it, and restores it to the Kingdom because of its acceptance of wholeness. The full appreciation of the mind’s Self-fullness makes selfishness impossible and extension inevitable. That is why there is perfect peace in the Kingdom. Spirit is fulfilling its function, and only complete fulfillment is peace. T-7.IX.4:1-8

The drop yearns to be united again with the ocean. The drop wants to be with the other drops to experience the wonder of that of which it is a part. When the drop rejoins the ocean it experiences the joy of being home again after its evaporation, formation, and return to that from which it emerged.

In Unitarian Universalism some of us join together to affirm and promote the awareness of the interdependent web of which we are a part.

Today it is suggested that we reflect on the idea that united we stand and divided we fall.
