Have you ever been consumed and distracted with accomplishing errands and doing chores, instead of expanding into Love, Beauty and Wisdom through spiritual practice? I have! I’ve chosen the ego satisfaction of getting things done instead of deepening my spiritual connection.
This is a “thing” with spiritual students, and everyone. It’s an ego thing.
Getting things done, feeling productive makes the ego feel important and successful – but not the Spirit. As spiritual beings we feel successful when we’re connected to our higher wisdom and when we’re letting Love flow through our life.
Sometimes we’d rather run errands and get chores done than simply be contemplative and commune with Spirit for 20 minutes. We’re avoiding that spiritual connection. The ego is such a trickster. We can get everything done and orderly and have missed the whole point of experiencing more order and clarity.
It’s not about ego satisfaction and accomplishment.
The point is for us to choose clarity and experience clarity.
It’s not about what we did – it’s about what we ARE.
Then too, some folks live in such a mess of disorder that they find it impossible to concentrate and are always off balance and playing catch up, arriving late and feeling distracted and so they spin around for those 20 minutes that they could have used to tune in and tune UP! Been there and done that!
Right now, more than ever, there’s gold in the little moments – because the choice we make is either opening to Love or choosing separation – even in the little and insignificant choices. There’s the power and presence of God in each choice we make, if we look for it. It’s SO worth making a series of seemingly small loving choices. In my experience, it’s life-changing. It’s that drip, drip, drip that can fill a bucket much quicker than we thought.
Many small loving choices transform an empty and fearful life into a life full of Love.
I say, let’s go for the gold! Our HEART of gold that IS the Kingdom. Are you in? What say you?
Let’s make a quantum leap together. If you’d like my help developing a spiritual practice of Self-care that clears out the old patterns of past beliefs in order to move out of the unconscious guilt and punishing yourself, blaming others, living like a victim or a martyr, feeling guilty and ashamed, and into feeling more connected with Spirit, please check out my Finding Freedom From Fear Spiritual Bootcamp class – it’s designed to be a rocket booster for your spiritual journey.
If you feel you’ve been holding yourself back and letting fear decide, this might be your answered prayer!
