Seminary Program

This is where we post the essays from many of our Universal Life Church Seminary students. When students finish a ULC course, they write a comprehensive essay about their experiences with the course, what they learned, didn't learn, were inspired by, etc. Here are their essays.

Spiritual Awareness

Spiritual Awareness Final Essay 
Rev. Lucinda Parker

Having read James Redfield’s Celestine Prophecy and the Tenth Insight years ago, I was truly looking forward to Rev. King’s rendition of this class. I was impressed and pleased to see the subject of universal energy so well presented!

As there are no coincidences, I even found the lessons arriving at the right time for events occurring in my life. Power plays and the theft of energies were contributing to a very negative work environment. As I worked through Rev. King’s lessons, I was again reminded how to recognize what was occurring and more importantly how to diffuse it. No one can steal anything form you unless you let them. This course gives one the tools to be in command of their own life.

We make choices constantly. Even choosing to ignore or not act is a choice which will have an impact upon us. Rev. King appropriately repeats in several lessons the impact of individual choice and the power we have to control ourselves and to create the lives we want.

I especially enjoyed the lesson on finding our life purpose. Many of us spend our time looking externally for who we are, why we are, and waiting for that perfect life somewhere in the unforeseen future. This lesson is one that should be read once a week. It is that powerful! “The present moment is actually the only moment you have to fully touch and to be touched by life.” Rev. King, Lesson 10. The entire lesson reminds us not to hold off and wait for tomorrow to create our life and find our true purpose.

While not required for credit for this class, I highly suggest answering the questions Rev. King presents at the end of lesson 20. Write the thoughts out in your journal. Reread your essay in a week, in a month. How has your life changed? While the lessons will no longer arrive in my email, this class has encouraged me to once again begin seriously writing in my journal.

Spiritual awareness is about creating a new Earth, a new oneness, and living in pure love. Rev. King has done an excellent job in taking the precepts of the Celestine Prophecy and creating an interactive and thought provoking course. I have taken a majority of the classes offered by the Seminary. This one is one of the best, particularly if you have only begun your spiritual path.

As a long time member of ULC, Rev. Long created the seminary site to help train our ministers.
