DAILY SPIRITUAL NUGGETS: 31 Days of Embracing the Practice – Day 15 “Study As a Way of Life”
Meditative Thought: For the last six years I have been in some type of a spiritual class or studying the writings of a great avatar, and I have found it to be the jewel of my practice. Every time I sit in the presence of students with the same goal in mind, greatness happens. I am amazed at the insight I received from fellow students or the students of the classes I facilitate.
Once we have finished a course or a book, we are not done. There is always more to know. When we embrace the path of the light, the knowledge is endless; there is always more to learn. What I love about sacred study is the more I know, the more I realize I don’t know. I love going back to what is known as the “Beginner’s Mind.” The “Beginner’s Mind” allows us to be humble enough to learn. Our lessons are infinite, without ceasing, if we are open to it. We are on a journey of enlightenment with no destination. As Earnest Holmes said, “There is no higher level of learning in God, only learning.” This way of life, to keep evolving, requires a commitment and a willingness to continue to evolve.
Your Spiritual Assignment: Today, find your spiritual leader that speaks to you. Listen, take notes, and allow their word, writings, and/or messages take hold of you. Contemplate and cultivate what is resonating in your soul. Then ask yourself, “What does this mean for me?” Allow your inner guides to tell you what you need to know. Every messenger presents the message in his or her own way. When you hear something that says yes, go with it and leave the rest for another time.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I return to the beginner’s mind. My life is open and I am willing to learn. Amen
