Have you been lied to?

Walking the path of the ego one finds drama of all sorts: love vs. hate, birth vs.death, gain vs. loss, beauty vs. ugliness, goodness vs.evil, truth vs. deceit.

We are led to believe that we have to choose, but how can we have one without the other? Things are one half of the whole. The path of the ego is full of deceit, illusion, suffering and anguish, as well as genuineness, reality, joy and happiness.

It is all part of the interdependent web of existence which we have created in our separation from the Divine.

Spiritual traditions have taught us that we can rise above the path of the ego and become one with the Spirit, the foundation of existence. Luke Skywalker called it "The Force."

In Unitarian Univeralism we call it the "covenant." In A Course In Miracles, it is called the Atonement. Whatever we call it, what really matters, is that we know we are One.

Living on the path of the ego there is always something. If it is not one thing, it's another. It's not until our tolerance for nonsense is exhausted that we finally realize that we have been lied to by the ego and that there must be a better way.
