First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia ~ Welcome home!

Often times we may feel unsure of how to practice our spirituality or long for someone who has attained a higher level of insight to lead the way for us. Nevertheless, when we are open to receiving their wisdom, the people and situations we encounter every day have much to teach us. Because they may not look or act like our idea of a guru, we don’t recognize our teachers, yet they may embody great wisdom. From the insignificant to the major, all the situations in life conspire to teach us exactly what we need to learn at any

given time. Patience, compassion, perseverance, honesty, surrender, or letting go are all covered in the classroom is your life. Sometimes people show up to teach us by showing what we don’t want to do.


The greatest teacher you could ever want is always with you that is your life. The homeless person you see every day may be showing you the boundaries of your compassion and generosity. Chronic tardiness may be an indication to decrease the amount of your workload. A series of lost items may be asking you to be more present to physical reality. Take some time each day to consider what life is trying to teach at this time. Each morning find a moment to say, “I acknowledge and honor the teacher that is my life, may I be wise enough to recognize the teachers and lessons that I encounter today, and may I be open to receiving their wisdom.”


Trust your intuition on the nature of the lesson at hand; Your life has all the answers.


From My Heart to Yours,

Rev. Addae
