Pray For an Experience of Holiness to Remove All Your Doubt

Pray For an Experience of Holiness to Remove All Your Doubt
We have four distinct different approaches to Spirit Guidance. Which is yours?


• The truly radical response is the internal action.  It happens when Spirit coaching or your own inner guidance meets an open door of acceptance that the ego-mind cannot manipulate in that moment. 
    - There is a simple readiness. 
     - The result is always radical and solid
     - It is met with a clear intimate response from Spirit.


The other day a client reported just such a simple but powerful experience.  In the past I have often heard her bitter complaint of what she describes as the ‘tedium’ of life, amplified by her acute awareness of her ever-present ego-mind monitoring the details of her life, as in our culture it is well-trained to do.

More from YourTango: Who are You?


Following a number of months of a daily ritual of intimate connection with Spirit through prayer, she noticed a subtle but positive effect on her day.  She was hungry for more. She was ready to open a door to acceptance and action within herself.


From that place of inner hunger, her response to the Spirit coaching, “go to place in nature and “hang out’ with Spirit there” was radical acceptance and action.  No ego-mind. No pondering.


And Spirit’s response to her was intimate, direct and powerful.


She described it:  “Even on the way there my whole body was vibrating.  When I arrived and sat down, the air was cold and there was a chilly wind, but I was quite warm.  Then I heard the Power.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  I think of myself as a visual person, but I heard the Power.  It went on for quite a while.  It was so strong.  Some fear came up.  So I breathed deeply to stay present.  I stayed with it until some children came by where I was.  Then it was complete.  I also saw colors in the sea I had never seen.  I heard the Power. “


She continued.  “I understand now.  It is a Mystery, completely beyond the mind.  A profound emptiness that is utterly full.  I wasn’t ready before.  Now I am.  It feels good to be ready. I have made a commitment.  It is for the rest of my life.”


On the outside, her life looks pretty much the same to a casual observer:


• same relationship,
• same job,
• same finances,
• same daily tasks, etc.” 


Yet her experience of those outer realities is subtly but radically transformed.

• Her response to every other aspect of her life has a new and different “ring.”  
• Her inner life is now resting on a foundation that is more solid than bedrock.
• She has a knowing that is all her own.
She has directly experienced who she truly is - the Power of the love that she is.

Enlightenment And Your Life

By

Buddha said, "Rare it is and extremely fortunate indeed to be born a human. Rarer still is it to hear of enlightenment and even rarer yet is it to pursue enlightenment." So what?

THE SUMMER I LEARNED TO RUN AT FEAR

By

One sunny day when I was twelve years old, my mother called me out of my leisurely daydream to help her with a cow that had just given birth. I didn't think much of it at the time. It just seemed a natural event in the farm life of my family. Now 60 years later, the events of that day are chiseled in my memory as the beginning of a life-changing learning ... Read more
