The most basic principles of the teachings of Jesus have transformed my life because I applied them. Studying them didn’t really help me. In fact, much of the time, because of my studies, I actually felt badly about myself because I judged myself as failing at what I was learning.
I would try to comfort myself with telling myself that I was doing so much by studying the teachings, but I knew in my heart that it wasn’t true.
For a long time, I thought that living in alignment with principle would be so hard that I couldn’t do it. I also had the belief that if I lived in alignment with principle I’d have to give up everything that gave me relief from my suffering. Neither of these beliefs was true.
I’ve learned that if the thought doesn’t make me happy, it’s probably not true and therefore I don’t need it anymore.
It took courage for me to have faith and place my trust in Spirit that if I gave up the things that I thought I liked and the things that I thought I needed, I would actually be happier. In the process I learned that I didn’t really have to give them up, but I did have to give up my attachment – I had to give up the needing, the wanting and the craving.
Needing, wanting and craving is all a sign of feeling disconnected from Spirit. The disconnect is intensified when we worship false idols.
Our bodies can be false idols.
Our loved ones can be false idols.
Our jobs can be false idols.
Where there is needing, wanting and craving, there are false gods and idols.
We can give the cravings to Spirit for healing.
We can discover that we’re whole and lacking and nothing, but we must actively choose it. That’s our willingness. That’s the way – willingness is the way!
With our active decision to be willing, and our choice to give up needing, wanting, craving, we find ourselves moving into a period of true prosperity. We discover the end of lack.
Life is amazing. Our healing is at hand. Let’s choose it and go together, NOW!

We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April.

If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!
