Will you choose holiness in place of the ego?


Wanting more, faster, better is no way to live.
Grasping does not engender contentment.

Love is not possible when manipulation is the way of life.
When is enough, enough?

When less is more, pacing is better than speed, and good enough is enough
Heaven will descend on earth and it will be as it is in heaven.

Unitarian Universalists know this because they relax in their covenant with each other. There is no need for speed, or to expect things from each other they cannot give, or to always expect more that what is possible. UUs after all affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which is intrinsic and not extrinsic, and the respect for the interdependent web which is discerned in the now not in the past or the future. UUs intend to sanctify the world within which every person choses holiness in place of the ego.

  1. The teaching in A Course In Miracles is that we can choose, the path of the ego or the path of the spirit. The choice for the path of the ego is the path of wrong mindedness while the choice of the path of the spirit is right mindedness. The work being done here to make people aware that they have a choice is important and generous work. Thank you.
