A client friend once said to me,
“I’m watching my thoughts.
I’m feeling my feelings.
And it still hurts.
What am I missing?”
Why doesn’t Spirituality
work instantly or constantly?
Our mind has the gift of Light.
Our heart has the gift of Love.
And these are heroic powers.
But the first aspect of our Soul
beyond even Light & Love
is the Will.
And our will proves itself over time.
Spirituality is not a one step event
but a path that must be walked.
Awakening & Redemption –
these are a millennial planetary journey
& there is a transforming virtue in
staying with it, keeping with it
step by step by step.
We’ve pledged our allegiance
to a common future
with liberty & justice for all.
We’ve prayed for the forgiveness
of our mutual debts.
we have not yet perfected
these holy aims.
It is only through choices & actions
across days, months, years & lives
that such ideals become real in the world.
You & I have our part to play.
This is how our pain finds peace.
Spirit is pure & matter is dense.
We align our will with principles
by persevering in their practice.
That is the Way
mind, heart & body
