The universal nature of which I am a manifestation?

I said before that of yourself you can do nothing, but you are not of yourself. If you were, what you have made would be true, and you could never escape. It is because you did not make yourself that you need be troubled over nothing. Your gods are nothing, because your Father did not create them. You cannot make creators who are unlike your Creator, any more than He could have created a Son who was unlike Him. If creation is sharing, it cannot create what is unlike itself. It can share only what it is. Depression is isolation, and so it could not have been created. T-10.V.5:1-8

We are not the author of our own existence. We had to come from somewhere, to have been made from something. We are an extension of our Transcendent Source and what we have made, thinking it is ourselves, is but a fabrication of the ego. Being an extension of our Transcendent Source we have security, peace, and bliss. If we believe we are simply the object of our own ego creation, we will be depressed.

In Unitarian Universalism some of us join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which comes from our Transcendent Source and is not of our own making.

The question we all struggle with consciously or unconsciously is “What makes me tick?” Am I merely the consequence of social construction or deep down is there a universal nature of which I am a part? To what extent am I aware of the universal nature of which I am a manifestation?
