Minister's Moment

Our ego attempts to reconcile our experience with our perceived reality as a means of dealing with uncertainty. In other words, it supports our mental need to justify our responses to what we think is happening. Yet, our ego is not the only voice we hear. We have another voice that competes for our attention. It is the still small voice that we call our higher self. Together, these voices are metaphorically represented by the devil and angel; sitting on opposing shoulders and competing for attention. They represent our so-called temptations and virtues. Moment by moment, we decide which voice receives our favor. Yet the goal is not to reject one over the other. Rather, we must learn to give air to both voices, acknowledge them and seek understanding. Opening ourselves to this inner struggle is the key to birthing new levels of awareness. 

If you can’t spend Sunday with us in person, watch the service through our live-stream at 11 am or catch up on any of our services through our on-line archive . Thank you for your interest in Unity and may your spiritual path be one of joy and fulfillment. 

Namaste,

Air for Two Voices

Our ego attempts to reconcile our experience with our perceived reality as a means of dealing with uncertainty. Yet, our ego is not the only voice we hear. We have another voice that competes for our attention. It is the still small voice of our higher self. The goal is not to reject one over the other. Rather, we must learn to give air to both voices, acknowledge them and seek understanding. Opening ourselves to this inner struggle is the key to birthing new levels of awareness.

“Keep in mind when you are tempted and become distracted that you are learning. Give yourself the gift of compassion. Give yourself a sense of grace.” - Vincent Cole
