What would Love have me do?

Wholeness heals because it is of the mind. All forms of sickness, even unto death, are physical expressions of the fear of awakening. They are attempts to reinforce sleeping out of fear of waking. This is a pathetic way of trying not to see by rendering the faculties for seeing ineffectual. “Rest in peace” is a blessing for the living, not the dead, because rest comes from waking, not from sleeping. Sleep is withdrawing; waking is joining. Dreams are illusions of joining, because they reflect the ego’s distorted notions about what joining is. Yet the Holy Spirit, too, has use for sleep, and can use dreams on behalf of waking if you will let Him. T-8.IX.3:1-8

Sleep is a way of leaving the world of the ego by withdrawing from it. It is a hiatus from hell. When we return from sleep into our conscious mind most of us are not awake in the spiritual sense. To be awakened, enlightened, is to become cosmically conscious joining the non dual Oneness with our Transcendent Source by leaving the hell of the ego, rising above it, for peace and bliss.

In Unitarian Universalism, some of us join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which takes us beyond the world of the ego to the world of Spirit, from the world of conditional love to the world of unconditional love.

Today it is suggested that we choose to awaken to the world of Spirit and leave the world the ego behind. When we leave sleep we can ask the Holy Spirit to help us be a conduit of God’s unconditional love in the world by asking continually throughout the day, “What would love have me do?”
