I’ve learned that the primary key to my spiritual success  is having my mind and my heart  be aligned with the same intention. Living a loving, nonviolent life includes acting in congruency with Love itself. This requires following through on my inner guidance.
Have you ever asked the Universe for something and method for attaining it came in a way you didn’t want? Perhaps you wanted Peace  in your family, and instead, you kept getting the message to visit your least favorite Aunt–to which you responded, “No, thanks.” What you didn’t know was that you were being guided to be the deliverer of the Peace!
A Course in Miracles tells us that the way to have something is to extend it. “To have, give all to all.” The best way to have Peace is to recognize that Peace is within and then share it. When we kind of find the even a little bit of willingness to share, it’s a healing. Isn’t the bonus opportunity to be able to recognize you are the one who brings it with you because it’s pre-installed? We can learn how to value the willingness to look within. Seek and ye shall find. Willingness is the answered prayer.
When someone tells me they’re feeling distraught and a bit crazy, it’s usually quite evident that they are saying one thing and doing another. They aren’t congruent in heart and mind. They are split and that is the cause of their crazy feelings and behavior. The answered prayer is congruency.
When I am congruent in my mind and heart then I can be as powerful as it is possible for me to be because there’s no conflict at the starting point of power in my world. My whole being is aligned and available for success. Self-sabotage has no place to land when my heart and mind are aligned with Love and congruent.
In his book, THE HEALING POWER OF PRAYER, mystic and healer Ron Roth, tells us that when we reject the guidance we receive, “Your prayer can no longer be answered because what you are hearing is the path to the answer , but you don’t want to hear it. Being alert to the form the answer may take is another aspect of congruency…”
Congruency in my thinking, my deepest heart’s desires AND my actions brings profound Peace. Congruency is well worth focusing on. It leads to Peace, balance, Harmony, Freedom, and true Joy. And there’s my answered prayer.
Today, I make a commitment to being congruent with Love and compassion in my thoughts, words and actions. If my guidance takes the form of a sudden impulse to write a letter, make a call or visit someone, I follow through knowing  that the step I take is on a pathway to my answered prayer. In my daily choices and actions I move the world in the direction of Peace.
