Sunday, October 23, 2016: “The Field Effect”

Presented by: Julie Merrick

The field effect refers to a level of consciousness or energetic signature that is attached to a person or a place. A temple will often have a field effect of peace whereas a concentration camp or battle field will hold a field effect of suffering and sadness.

In the Hindu teaching called Darshan, one receives a blessing when in the presence of a saint. Mother Teresa, for example, was a saint who embodied the field effect of love. To be in her presence was to be blessed with this energy. Mother Teresa did not come to embody love by accident rather she focused upon love on a continual basis until it became an integral part of her being.

We too create field effects in our lives, both those that are attached to our person and those attached to the places we inhabit.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on these journeys. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
