Being spiritual or not spiritual isn’t an option-you were born spiritual and everything you do is spiritual.
So what is the deal with trying to be spiritual-trying to find your path of enlightenment?
I believe we are programmed to believe we are not spiritual unless we have a religious belief and attend church. For centuries those who do attend meetings have been trying to recruit non believers and convert them to their faith. The bottom line for the church is it’s simply good business and nothing else. Long before there were churches, there were millions of people who were very aware of their own spirituality and they understood the connection between themselves, others and their environment.
Although many of us are not aware of our spirituality it doesn’t mean we are not spiritual. It is spirit which moves the body, that knows it’s alive and its connection to the environment. Awareness of this is what most people are lacking. The benefits of knowing ones true nature or spiritual connection are many.
If you lived in a dry land and everyday was a great effort to find and gather water, would it not benefit you to know that by digging 20 below your feet you would find all the water you could use?
If you were homeless and you spent your days sitting on the same corner begging for food, would it not benefit you to know that there is a free soup kitchen only two blocks away?
If you were in the market for a new car and you local dealer did not have what you were looking for, would it not benefit you to know that in the next town, they have the exact model you’re looking for?
Knowledge is power-the awareness of one’s own spiritual nature is power. The most amazing thing is we do not have to do anything, look anywhere, or kiss anybodies ass to be spiritual. We simply have to know we are already there. The benefits of this knowledge are infinite opportunity to experience anything we desire. Would this knowledge serve you to know you can have abundance, good relationships, love, or anything you desire simply by knowing that you can?
The knowledge of your own spirituality can open doors to places you would never thought possible and it is yours through the simple process of knowing.
The big difference between believing and knowing is in knowing you already have it-you are already experiencing it. In believing or having faith that you will have a thing-it is something that may occur in the future. In knowing you are the spiritual one who will create what you wish to experience-you have access to immediate delivery and it is not incumbent upon the whims of someone or something else.
The greatest secret to the benefits of spiritual awareness is the power that it holds. In the knowing you are spiritual, brings knowing its power and its responsibility-it is absolute. Thinking, believing, trusting or having faith that you are spiritual does not take you there-it is the awareness of being spiritual which makes it so. It’s within the acceptance of being this power that you are able to use it. Humanity knew this a very long time ago, but gave up the responsibility for it because he feared his own imagination and the awesome limitlessness of its capabilities.
Power is non-power unless it’s used. The responsibility for this power was too much for primitive man. Instinctively man still knows his connection to this power it never went away. He chose a life of limited power and a lifetime of trying to find it. The same power that can create universes can also destroy them-man fears this power. Man generally fears to think too big. He is still very primitive in his thinking and his concerns are with himself and his little empire. There are other places, other realms yet to be discovered that will require him to be more powerful. Until he is ready to claim back his spirituality and power he will never leave this earth.
The good new is that you can have it all now through complete acceptance of what you truly are.
Spirituality, what is it good for? It’s worthless until you know its value and place in your own awareness.
As you read this, your creative mind may be thinking this is a lot of bull. And you would be correct. You would also have a greater understanding of why you do not have complete authority over your life or have limited power. You would know why things do not always work out the way you want them to-you have accepted less! Quit simply-you are not ready to accept what is already yours.
If at this moment you may be saying to yourself-my life is the way it is because of “this” or “that” then you already know you are powerless to change it.
That changes when you accept your own spirituality. What is it good for-it is determined by you and your own creativity.
I’d like to find a book that gives information about who exactly the wiccan goddess and god are, their histories, where they came from, their teachings / practices, etc. I’ve been trying to find one for a while now but everything I find just gives basic overall Wiccan information, and not specifically things about the God and Goddess.
God loves all the people.
He is impartial and his love is unconditional.
Then why do good things things, behavior and actions have a high place in spiritual path ? Whey these are valued high even in God’s eyes ?
waltino75, good thinking i guess.
doris you are right.
one can’t keep doing bad things and be assured that he or she will be simply forgiven simply by one or the other religious means. God is not so stupid.
Hi girls and guys this is more of a philosophical question than a religious one.
The question is assuming that “good things, actions etc. are valued high” in God’s eyes how this fit well with “God is impartial and his love is unconditional ?”
Please limit this question to philosophy and do not drag religious beliefs into it.
Tripan good way to put it. However for the present question I will have to say that your explanation is based on too many unnecessary assumptions (or that may look like assumptions to many). I would prefer an explanation of the philosophy logically with as few or no assumptions if possible.
Gadfly your answer is good and philosophical with minimum or probably no assumptions. Thanks.
My mother told me yesterday that in spite of your parents being the spiritual leaders of the house hold, it is never good to put faith in them but rather live according to your own faith because they can fall. To simplify it, I should only have faith in the Bible and in Jesus Christ but not in my mother nor father (who never seemed very spiritual by the way), because when my parents fall I should not rely on them for spiritual counseling. Should I be independent for my own spirituality?
I’m looking for some good pagan children books for my toddlers. I’d love some recommendations… Thanks!
