In what do Unitarian Univeralists find Truth, Goodness, and Beauty?

No one person owns the Truth.
The Truth is always present supporting Goodness.

Goodness appears in unexpected ways at unexpected times in unexpected places. Goodness also does not appear often where one would expect it and require it.

Truth and Goodness have a life of their own apart from the ego.
The ego projects and Truth and Goodness extend.

Truth and Goodness reside on the path of the spirit and are not to be found on the path of the ego.

Truth and Goodness are not haughty, not proud, do not need applause to be what they are.

Many do not see Truth and Goodness when it is right before their eyes. Truth and Goodness are more a matter of the heart than the head. When the heart is closed by fear Truth and Goodness are difficult to experience. When the heart is open Truth and Goodness fill up as much space as is provided.

Unitarian Univeralists embrace a faith that is huge, all encompassing, waits to be recognized.

UUs covenant to affirm and promote seven basic principles which encourage the experience of Truth and Goodness in all of their days and for all time. In this practice, UUs find precious beauty.

Are there angels among us?

There are angels among us who are changing the world. Often they are quiet, unassuming, maybe even introverted. They quietly watch the goings on and are not reactive. They are observing, gaining perspective, wanting to understand the unfolding of the organic whole in its own time.

These angels are courteous and they seem to go with the flow and they hardly cause any notice from anyone. They seem reserved, opaque, and impervious to the drama swirling around them. They are waiting quietly for the times to ripen when the signal for action will arise.

Their bliss is a blessing that goes unnoticed until after the fact. Then we wonder who they are, what they are about, how they have been among us all this time and we have not noticed.

These people who are the angels among us walk the path of the spirit. They have risen above the path of the ego. They are among us but not participants in our ridiculous nonsense.

These angels have covenanted together based on principles called beauty, goodness, truth, and love. These principles are called the transcendentals which organize and manifest the best on earth as it is in heaven.

The angels are among us and they walk a spiritual path with a rich interior life hidden from the world which is blind and cannot see.
