What is the spiritual life really all about? What is holiness? What are we supposed to be doing with our lives?
I am convinced it is about letting go of the will of the ego and accepting the higher will of God. That often means seeing Christ in others and sacrificing our movement to moment desires and inclinations on their behalf in love. In that way we become less self centered and more unified in Christ. It takes self emptying, a conversion of how we live and it results in the transformation of who we are. Holiness is realization of our unity in the love of Christ and it requires a diminishment off our sense of “me” alone.
