It wasn’t until I set out to prove spiritual principles in my life that I found my deep faith. I uncovered it through working with spiritual principles as a scientist would. This is why we call it “spiritual practice.”
My experience of faith requires my knowing who I am and what is mine to do – not because someone told me, but because I found it for myself. Faith is part of the Kingdom which is within.
Heaven is within! It might seem like arrogance to walk around thinking, “My heaven is within me,” and yet only the ego would think that was arrogance. True arrogance is thinking that you can judge ANYONE for ANY reason. The ego loves to do that!
What I’ve come to realize is this – if I’m continuously seeking outside myself for happiness, fulfillment and joy, then I won’t be looking within the Kingdom. If I’m seeking outside myself then I’ll be placing my faith in the world, instead of in God. In which case, I’ll never feel truly secure, truly happy, truly peaceful. Why? Because my peace and happiness will always be based on things that are ever-changing. Only God is constant.
Through my studies and my spiritual practice, I’ve come to know that I truly am one with the infinite, supported and surrounded by love. I can never leave this place of security except within my own mind. My faith is evidence of that within me which knows the fundamental truth of life: I am a spiritual being; all is spiritual substance and always will be. God is constant AS ME. With faith all things are possible.
I believe that because we are all “born of the spirit,” there is that within each of us that has an unshakable faith. To find it, you must be the one who has “eyes to see and ears to hear.”
Today let your practice of Love be a faith walk. Look for evidence of the unseen Intelligence that is your very life. Be grateful. Be constantly devoted to the One who is devoted to YOU!
