Sunday, May 7: “The Paradox of Death”
Rev. Michael Gott
It can be confusing for Unity truth students. If death is just a transition, then why do we mourn? Does our sadness indicate a lack of faith? Not at all. We can hold the tension of opposites here, knowing that our grief is appropriate and honorable, and be comforted to know that there is no end to the life of the individual in Spirit.
May Sunday Talk Theme: “Spiritual Double Vision–To Honor the Human Condition, While Grounded in the Spiritual Truth”
The mark of genius is to hold contradictory truths in mind at the same time. To live a human life on a spiritual basis will necessarily present us with many paradoxes. We are both eternal and mortal, limited and limitless. If we are willing to stretch our consciousness, we will learn that the paradox is not to be avoided, but rather to be explored as a path of our healing and growth. We will no longer have to hold our humanity and divinity as separate. We are divinely human, and humanly divine.
