Generating kindred spirits creates great peace and joy.

Remember that the Holy Spirit interprets the body only as a means of communication. Being the Communication Link between God and His separated Sons, the Holy Spirit interprets everything you have made in the light of what He is. The ego separates through the body. The Holy Spirit reaches through it to others. You do not perceive your brothers as the Holy Spirit does, because you do not regard bodies solely as a means of joining minds and uniting them with yours and mine. This interpretation of the body will change your mind entirely about its value. Of itself it has none. T-8.VII.2:1-7

The body is merely the conduit of God’s unconditional love. Joining with the Holy Spirit to rise above the ego which is identified with the body and commune with Spirit  is the means of the Atonement which is the healing of the separation.

In Unitarian Universalism some of us join together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and the encouragement to spiritual growth. Christians call this the “Body of Christ.” Buddhists call it “sangha”.

Today it is suggested that we consider that joining kindred spirits generates great peace and joy on earth as in heaven.
