Sermon Summary

Title: “Why is the Spiritual Path so Uncomfortable?”

http://seattleunity.org — We continue our sermons related to the 2018 Annual Theme category of “The Inner Pilgrimage.” Consistent with the July theme of the benefits of discomfort, in his July 22nd, 2018 sermon, Sada Simran describes why his spiritual path of Sikhism is often so uncomfortable. He offers aspects of events in his own life to illustrate not only events and situations of discomfort, but the positive value of those events and the value of the discomfort itself—how discomfort prodded him to go deeper into explorations of Truth. He concludes the sermon with a five-minute special mediation.

Quotations from the Sermon:

“My truth would bring me a deeper satisfaction that would turning away from being uncomfortable.”

“When I started wearing a turban I was very uncomfortable. I don’t see much distance between being uncomfortable and being on a spiritual path. It’s kind of like they go together.”

“We have a deep longing to belong, don’t we? A deep to reconnect; a deep longing to experience our truth; a deep longing to experience our personal reality. And as we move toward that truth, we begin to realize that this truth that we have is unique unto us.”

“My personal truth is different than your personal truth.”

“We have a collective truth at Unity today, don’t we?”

“We have universal truth that the great scriptures write about that is beyond time and space.”
