Keeping Your Chariot on the Road

In church today, the minister offered a brief but instructive analogy. He said that every person’s life is like a chariot pulled by two horses. The chariot is your consciousness, one horse is your involvement in the material world, and the other horse is your spiritual efforts. You need your two horses to be in synch in order to stay on the road. If you’re too invested in the material world,  the chariot of your consciousness will veer to one side; if you’re too focused on your spiritual life at the expense of your earthly existence, the chariot will pull to the other side. Either way, you’ll be out of balance and your journey will be bumpy and uneven. If, however, you strike a balance and learn how to be in this world but not of it, you will be able to drive your chariot right down the middle of life’s highway in perfect harmony.

Helpful hint: Whichever model of chariot you decide to get, be sure it has the right amount of horsepower!
