Osho said one time:
"Meditation simply means transforming your unconscious in to consciousness. Normally only one-tenth of our mind is conscious, and nine-tenths is unconscious. Just a small part of our mind, a think layer, has light; otherwise the whole house is in darkness. And the challenge is to grow that small light so that the whole house is flooded with light, so that not even a nook or corner is left in darkness.
When the whole house is full of light, then life is a miracle; it has the quality of magic. Then it is no longer ordinary - everything becomes extraordinary. The mundane is transformed into the sacred, and the small things of life start having such tremendous significance that one could not have ever imagined it. Ordinary stones look as beautiful as diamonds; the whole of existence becomes illuminated. The moment you are illuminated, the whole of existence is illuminated. If you are dark, then the whole of existence is dark. It all depends on you. "
It says in A Course In Miracles "Can you imagine how beautiful those you forgive will look to you?"
It also says, " The real world is attained simply by complete forgiveness of the old, the world you see without forgiveness."
Peace Pilgrim said, "I look for the divine spark in every person and I focus on that."
As Unitarian Univeralism we cherish and honor the divine spark in our lighted chalice and we sing, "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine."
