Are you coming along with us on the path of the spirit?

Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote seven principles of life. UUs tend to be a smart, intelligent group of people. They have risen above creeds and orthodoxies and are what is called "free thinkers." The problem might be that they think too much. The goal is not more knowledge, but a common experience of godliness. Everyone, deep down, wants this experience, but they don't know it or if they know it don't know how to get it.

Can people know too much? How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? What lie will the President, Donald Trump, tell today? Will the congress people, who have received campaign contributions from the NRA, ever pass some sensible gun control legislation? Should we be bothered by these questions when we are not aware of our own being? How much does having answers to these questions make a difference to the quality of our lives and the life of the planet?

This topic irritates a lot of people because they know deep down that they have no idea what makes them tick and here they are trying to run the world.

The point is is that there are two different worlds: the world of the ego and the world of the spirit. In which world are you spending most of your time and energy and effort?

If you are walking the path of the ego you might want to change course and get on the path of the spirit. The path of the spirit manages fear with forgiveness, resentments with love, and knowledge with innocence. You know what I mean?

If you do that's great. If not, that's okay too. This blog is not for everyone. It is intended for the serious seeker. Thank you for coming along with us.
