Have you ever felt that you’ve been laboring “in vain?”
I have. Many, many times.
It was only because I wasn’t living in LOVE.
STUDYING spiritual principle and LIVING spiritual principle are two different things with completely different results.
I’ve tried it both ways. Studying can actually be a great way the ego distracts us from growing.
Reading books, listening to audios, and studying many hours can be a very effective way to keep us preoccupied with thinking that we’re doing something fruitful, when actually we’re just spinning our wheels and very little healing is happening.
An active practice of being loving, patient, kind and generous is profoundly healing, AND it builds a solid foundation for your life.
Do you ever act loving in order to get approval?
That was me.
That was me.
Think of Jesus and the Pharisees. The Pharisees were the political/religious leaders that were often confronting Jesus and questioning him. While Jesus was about God’s business, living and teaching spiritual Truth, the Pharisees were more focused on how other people saw them and policing people. They were looking to set an example while Jesus was the living example. While the Pharisees were busy judging and criticizing, Jesus lived as the Christ.
Studying spiritual Truth without applying it is what people have done for thousands of years. It’s a form of laboring in vain. It feels like it’s getting closer and closer to being a thing of the past as more and more of us don’t wish to merely be distracted and study heaven – we intend to live it NOW.
We’re leading humanity in the direction of spiritual Freedom which comes from walking the talk and living the Love.
Living in alignment with principle is deeply FULFILLING, studying principle is an intellectual pursuit that never brings Spirit into the heart for the true attainment. Let’s live it and be it and lead the way in Love!
We can labor in vain or make life a labor of Love!
Let Love rule and everybody wins!
