Simplicity is Divinity is a favorite saying and cuts to the chase when confusion arises. The simplest answer is always best and the truth is hard to hide. Write it down, seems that commonsense is becoming hard to come by and people are easily manipulated by fancy words…
I am at anytime surrounded by many enlightened beings here in the greater LA area. There are hundreds of life coaches, spiritual teachers, beings that can give you spiritual gifts, there are a plethora of yogis, masters of every field, so many 800 numbers to call. What is wrong with people? Is it really a mystery that we write our own story, and solve our own problems. No one is going to give you the answers you seek, even if they do take credit cards.
You have to do the work yourself. Your teacher maybe able to move mountains, and is very popular, and powerful but you will still have to do your own work if you wish to evolve during this lifetime. Your teacher will evolve trying to get you to evolve. You have to evolve on your own.
The hardest lesson of all is taking the first step without an audience, or someone holding your hand. Being spiritual when no-one is noticing, doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. That day you grow up, make your own choices, speak with your own voice, be authentically you.
We can do what the master does but the true spiritual teachers will point your super seeking mirror right back attcha! They will make you see you are seeking yourself.
That’s how you grow by figuring your own stuff out. Not even Jesus could interfere with the process of those around him, imagine the frustration.
Listening to someones advice is fine, make up your own mind, think with your own head, speak with your own voice. Why are you being a puppet? Why are you so scared to stand up for yourself?
People who are more excited about looking the part of a spiritual teacher than being the teacher might want to understand how the upper world feels about interlopers, its hard to mess with God’s children, I’m not kidding! A person is best served teaching about God if God is driving them to talk. Anyone who thinks to know the mind of God again, might want to check on that connection, and the warning sign that says, dumb ass alert! True spiritual masters are self-evident and when in their presence you are very aware of their presence.
The sun shows great spiritual behavior. Constantly giving, quietly, no one noticing, doing it anyway! Be like the sun in your approach. If you are going to wear spirit beads, let it be because you are going to pray, if you are wearing yoga clothes lets see you in a class, of some kind, if you say you are a person of God then act like a person of God, your spiritual clothes won’t do the work for you. Frankly none of the spiritual masters are cool with the, bring attention onto yourself proclaiming your closeness to God by what you wear, yah, they don’t say that, ever! It’s the meek shall inherit the Earth.
The most powerful are the most humble, their actions say it all, you can’t fake this!
