uuworld.org : grace wins in the end


Grace is always there, waiting to happen. Grace is very patient. And polite. Grace never imposes itself. Grace can surprise us, but it doesn’t force itself on us. Grace is a willing partner and a constant friend, but it never invades, even when our experience of grace feels overwhelming. This is at the core of the universalist message: There is always more than enough grace to go around.

—Chance Hunter, via uuworld.org : “grace wins in the end“. Spring 2011 2/15/11

In Anusara yoga, there is a great deal of discussion about “Grace.” It also is a positive philosophy, always “looking for the good” in each situation. I’ve journaled privately and e-mailed friends about what I perceived to be a consistency between this philosophy, and “universalism.” Organizationally one half of Unitarian Universalism, my chosen faith, universalism pertains to salvation, that it is available to all. I happened upon this article today, and believe this quote to be evidence for this consistency. This is very consistent with some, though not all, of the ways Anusara yoga teachers talk about Grace.
