Which path will you choose: the path of the ego or the path of the spirit?
We are born into a family and a society and enslaved to their values, beliefs, opinions, and practices through the practices of socialization and conditioning.
There is nothing wrong in being made a slave; it is the normal process of humanity on the path of the ego. Osho says, "There is nothing wrong in being born a slave, but it is definitely wrong to die as one. Unless you find your inner freedom, nothing in life will have any meaning or fulfillment."
Unitarian Univeralists covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. UUs believe in liberation and freedom. UUs believe in liberation from the chains of desire and the unhealthy restraints of normative coercion. UUs affirm and support the ability to choose. UUs say to people, "You are free to choose again. Will it be the path of the ego or the path of the spirit?"
