My dear friends, we love you so very much.
So many of you worry about making time for your ‘spiritual’ practices and yet we would contend that every dish you wash, every breath you breathe, and indeed every word that you utter is part of a spiritual practice. Life itself is a spiritual practice, and you can practice bringing the truth of your spirit into each and every word and deed, each and every day. To immerse your spirit in life, is to imbue your life with loving kindness, starting with yourselves first, then reaching outwards to others as your cup runneth over.
The question is not whether or not you are all spiritual – for indeed as you have heard many times, you are all spirits in bodies – but rather what level of spiritual awareness you bring to the everyday activities in your life.
While it is beautiful to meditate and sing sacred songs, we would encourage you to focus on speaking to one another more kindly, for a kind word is one of the holiest songs upon your earth. And while doing good for those who have less is certainly a most beautiful way to express your love, don’t forget to take care of your own basic needs as well.
For what good does it do if you achieve these so-called external spiritual acts without finding the peace and love of God within your own hearts? Give, dear ones, from what is truly inside of you, and fill your own cup first so that it can authentically spill over into the world.
Nothing you do is without purpose. Every thought, every word, and every deep ripples out into the universe, some having greater effect than others. You can make anything you do a spiritual practice if you bring love to the situation. You can bring love into your chores.
You can bring love into your conversations, and you can even bring love into situations in which you might otherwise judge yourselves. It would be a spiritual practice for some of you to look in the mirror and love yourselves unconditionally.
Dear ones, God walks with you in each and very moment of each and every day for indeed God is the force of love and life that breathes life into you. You cannot be without God. You are made of the very breath of God. You cannot be anything but spiritual.
So instead of worrying whether or not you have time for your spiritual practices, remember to make life a spiritual practice. Bring love into your thoughts, your words, and your deeds. Love yourselves without condition, and from this feeling of fullness and joy, then you can authentically share your gifts, talents, and resources with the world.
God bless you! We love you so very much.
