Blow on the divine spark and become a raging fire of love

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."

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person and we ask the universe to forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us. In A Course In Miracles it teaches us that these trespasses are a figment of our imaginations. They are not really real. They are the hell we have made up when we separated ourselves from our original divine spark by our conditioning and our choices. Making our fantasies disappear by forgiving them, frees us to experience the divine bliss which is our birthright. But we have forgotten and it is our job in life to re-member the kingdom of God with our aware presence. Until we make the unconscious conscious we feel victimized by forces, circumstances, and events we didn't choose, but when we become conscious we awaken to a loving compassion for ourselves and others and the whole world.

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."
