Back around 1995 I began to make the same prayer over and over again:
“My life inspires others to turn off the television, get out of the Lazy Boy and take loving action. “
That’s what interests me, taking loving action. Not just talking about it and thinking about it, but following through. It takes inspiration to be able to follow through and that’s what I’m interested in.
I’m interested in being inspired and sharing that inspiration with others.
One of the most prevalent beliefs I see among spiritual students is that they believe that the healing and transformation they desire is available to other people, but not to them.
“It works for others, but not for me, because I’m not good enough.”
I believed it too.
Of course, it’s not true.
It takes courage to take loving action anyway. It takes some inner strength, but most of all, it takes a real desire to live differently.
Most people would like to live differently – and catch this – they’re willing to work hard in the world, to earn more money to live a better life, or to get more education in order to live a better life, or to exercise, get in shape, and do many things to live a better life, but they’re not so willing to become intolerant of mind-wandering.
In A Course in Miracles, Jesus tells us that we’re “You are much too tolerant of mind wandering, and are passively condoning your mind’s miscreations.”
What is mind wandering?
It’s when our thoughts stray from the truth.
It’s when we’re making unloving choices and thinking unkind thoughts.
We’re not thinking “God’s thoughts.”
He says, “The correction is always the same. Before you choose to do anything, ask me if your choice is in accord with mine. If you are sure that it is, there will be no fear.”
It’s important that he reminds us that it’s our choice. We’re tolerant of the thinking that produces the feeling of fear. That’s our decision. We can do it differently.
We’re SO willing to work very hard in this world to try to make something better for ourselves. What would be more helpful is to stay in relationship with Spirit, with Jesus, and to be in tune with the field of Love, and NOT labor in vain, but be vigilant for mind wandering instead.
This is what I call working in the invisible.
But it does require being willing to give up the stinking thinking and many people find that so challenging they don’t bother.
Sometimes it seems impossible, and when that’s true it’s only because we’re trying to go it alone without relying on Spirit.
I’m now living the life I desired back in 1995.
My prayer continues to be answered every day.
I didn’t try to do it.
I let Spirit do it.
I wouldn’t know how or where to begin, but I know the knower who knows.
I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent the one who sent me.
I don’t have to wonder or worry about what to say or do,
Because, the one who sent me will lead, guide and direct me.
I am content to go wherever Spirit sends me because God goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let Spirit teach me to heal. AMEN!
This is why every day I offer my shot of Spiritual Espresso.
It’s part of my spiritual practice.
Spirit guides me every time.
I write spiritual inspiration and record a prayer for our healing.
Prayer is a power tool for our liberation.
Pray with me today.
Together we use this technology to transcend time and space and deepen our spiritual practice. Our spiritual practice is our path to liberation. And that’s beautiful to share! By the way, you’re my answered prayer. Thank you!
I Love you and I thank God for you. We bless each other with our willingness to rise in God and come back into our right minds. Together we truly are answering our call to BE the Love. YES!
