Spirituality is not about getting good; it’s about getting real.
Now that is a liberating concept! Practicing it will turn your world literally inside out.
We may have learned that the key to a successful life is to learn the rules and play by them better than anybody else. That doesn’t work. It keeps us busy, running, and maybe somewhat entertained. But it leaves us with an inner emptiness and disconnection from ourselves and from other people. It sucks the joy right out of living.
Our Unity Movement co-founder Myrtle Fillmore got it right when she shared her view of how to regard children, “Our Mission is not to entertain the children, but to call them out. To be always entertained is to be dwarfed and dependent. To be ‘called out’ is to follow the harmonious law of the soul’s unfoldment.”
When we make a regular process of calling out into expression our inner self by taking time in the quiet to commune with God, making it a priority to feed our minds with uplifting ideas, and trusting enough to receive God’s love in our hearts, we come into harmony with our true selves. We learn to live from the inside out. We learn that we are good, worthy, and of great value. We discover what it means to be real.
In the Love and Light of the Christ,
