Rev. Rosemary's talk last Sunday on The Big River of Love helped us jump into the experience of universal love and allow it to flow abundantly into our lives. Below is the exercise for this week. Remember to let us know your results with this and/or post them on our Facebook Page.
UCP EXPERIMENT 2: FEB. 14-18 2016: “LASER LOVE.”
“You align with the Field of Potential by loving everyone, by seeing the Face of God in everything, by feeling happy and joyful no matter what … Once you line up thus with the Universe, anything you could ever want or need shows up immediately. In fact, alignment and enlightenment are synonyms.” (Pam Grout, E Cubed, p. 121)
Most of us know someone who bugs us – someone we’d rather stay away from. In experiment 2, we agree to plunge into the great River of Love regarding that annoying person. The experiment requires 72 hours – 3 days. Set the ending time when you begin. Go within for a moment, and identify a person who annoys you intensely. Over the 3 days, you will devote yourself to listing all the qualities that person has that you could choose to admire. Just turn away from the annoying aspects of their behavior. Go back to their early childhood, and picture them as a child, , a teen, a young adult, a responsible thirty to fifty something, imagining how they have suffered, how they learned fear, how they learned to look down on themselves and protect themselves and lash out around themselves. Imagine how they have survived as well as they have till now, and discern their strengths and abilities.
Write down every positive aspect of their being. Ask Spirit to help you understand even more than you think you can. Then, write a brief before and after analysis of how you feel in yourself. As we did for Experiment 1, I invite you to reach out to others and share how this experience affected you, and please to communicate with Rev. Victoria or Rev. Rosemary, so we can summarize, anonymously, the way this experiment affected us as a spiritual community – what we can all learn from it.
