Drop the ego

Unitarian Universalists tend to be an intellectual group. They covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Great principle, but where does truth and meaning lie? Not where you'd expect.

Are you ready to drop your ego? The thought even scares us. Who would I be without me? You would be nothing. You would melt into the all.

Allowing your ego to melt can be a sign of psychosis or it can be a sign of transformation. Psychosis is just more ego albeit disorganized. Transformation occurs with intention and takes discipline and great courage.

A new bumper sticker might read, "Transformation is not for sissies."

  1. This blog is not for sissies, either. Very demanding stuff. Helpful though as I pursue my spiritual life.
