Will you join me in putting God first?
In this journey of awakening I’ve been looking ever more deeply into my life and experiences to learn from my mistakes and examine where I’ve made the highest and best choices and where I’ve made the low ego choices. I’m learning that cultivating the ability to always be looking at my opportunities and my missed opportunities with the loving eye of the open heart is the very best teacher I have. I don’t need any books, CD’s or classes to look deeply into my heart – although those tools can help me keep focused. I need to keep it real and tell myself the truth.
What I’ve found in myself is that so very often there’s a pull to make excuses, to give into temptations and to get side-tracked. The temptation is so strong to delay and delay and delay the the most spiritual growth. People often tell me that they’re going to start their spiritual practice some time in the future. When they have more time they’ll start. I’ve done that.
At least one million times I’ve told myself “I’ll start tomorrow.” And yet, I didn’t. Resistance, reluctance, and delays were my normal.
The highest level of teaching is right there in your heart, it’s in my heart and I love when we can bring our hearts together and be the two or more who are gathered in the name of Love. Clearing the clutter in our minds, releasing the grasping at false idols, chasing the intoxications of self-satisfaction and self-mediation – it’s all very demanding. It’s not even remotely easy until we fully align with Love. We are literally, in every moment, choosing heaven or hell. The stakes ARE that high.
I can think of all the times I’ve avoided the deep work and found something else to do like checking my email, running errands, calling a friend who “needs help,” or even just told myself that I “need” to chillax. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, heart and soul that there is nothing more nourishing, nothing more restorative, nothing more fulfilling then my connection with my own holiness. And yet, just like everyone else, I can avoid and procrastinate.
The times in my life when I really put God first have been the most rewarding and fruitful. The benefits have showed up everywhere in my life, in all my relationships and in my work and finances.
My aspiration is to put my spiritual practice ahead of everything else. I’m inviting you to join me in your heart and let’s see what we can share together!

If you’re ready for a little more help from the Divine, maybe it’s time to start using the God-given power of your focused belief. Find out how in this three-week tele-class—click here to learn more.
