Spiritual Leader Message
by Dr. Bob Churilla
It has been said that life is consciousness. At times it seems we are moving backwards, not forward when looking at what is happening in our country and the world. But there is little doubt if we look at history that consciousness is evolving. One only has to look at recent history. Over the last sixty years or so we have seen greater equality being achieved through the civil rights and gay rights movements. We have seen the recognition that war is something that is harmful. While we still have violence from wars and crime the amount of violence has actually declined.
We now live in a world where we are all connected. In Unity we often talk about our oneness in spirit. This is illustrated even on the physical plane due to all of the modern technology available to us today. It seems that we are all interconnected through the world wide web, our cell phones and other devices that are in use today. But we are all connected in much deeper ways as well. It is in these deeper ways where the greatest potential for evolving to higher forms of consciousness exists.
All of us on this planet are on a spiritual journey. We are all growing from the experiences we have and from our connections to each other. It is through our connection to each other that we are spiraling upwards to higher consciousness. As we continue to evolve in consciousness, we recognize that we are contributing to a better world through cooperation with others, a sustainable planet and most importantly love for each other and better relationships.
