Do you prefer information or insight?

One thing I know about the ego is it’s always seeking to collect more information.  Many spiritual students, myself included, can get hung up on collecting information.  I’ve allowed myself to be so distracted by collecting information that, in the end, was completely useless to me.

I’ve learned the hard way that information isn’t healing.  

Love is healing and only Love is healing.  

It’s important to know what the motivation is – is the motivation to end your suffering?  To feel better?  To gain something?  I’ve learned that none of those things can actually be accomplished by gathering information.  There’s no amount of information that has ever been healing to me.

The ego is constantly in search of data to prove someone wrong or right and that is a completely useless pursuit.  Spirit already knows everything.  OUR Spirit already knows everything.  That knowing is our access to True Wisdom.  Accessing Divine Wisdom clears the clutter of our mind.  Accessing Divine Wisdom is healing – and it’s always available to us!

Here’s the three step process that changes our life:  Ask, Listen, Follow.

Ask for guidance.

“Listen” (or sense) the guidance.

Follow the guidance.

All the energy that I used to put into collecting spiritual information, I now invest in “ask, listen, follow” to support my becoming more awake, aware, patient and kind.  This is what brings me benefit AND Joy!

Do you find yourself searching for information when you don’t even need it?  Do you have stacks of books that you never bothered to read and that you feel if you did someday read them they would somehow help you be more spiritual?

I used to collect books and information, but not anymore – I’ve realized it just doesn’t serve me.  It actually weighs me down.  Lots of information can be like clutter in the mind.  I’m interested in clearing my mind and by focusing on Love I’m able to do that!  Phew!

When the ego is driving your spiritual practice it seems like information is helpful, that’s when it’s MOST helpful to put Spirit in charge!
