A successful new venture?
I have been set free. I have discovered the speech recognition program on my computer.
So how may I best utilize this? I’m going to try an experiment here. I’m going to dig through my notes and those little scraps of paper and sort out all those brief snippets that do not a complete article make. I will give myself only the time it takes for me to drink my morning cup of coffee to complete the task I have given myself.
Morning Coffee will be posted on the days when I am not presenting one of the longer articles. Your response, or lack thereof, will determine whether this is something worth developing.
Although this may not seem to be a spiritual topic, consistency with any goal you set for yourself will bring success.Is it your intention to meditate more? Perhaps you want to change your eating habits. Do you want to build a stronger connection with your inner guidance? I probably hear more questions about people wanting to strengthen their connection to their guidance than anything else.
There are many ways, many different methods, of going inward, of learning to connect with Spirit. But if you are given the tools, and you do not use them, then what good are they?
Pick one. Any one. And then be consistent in your practice. You will derive more benefit from 5 minutes of meditation (or quiet time) on a daily basis than you will from going into the silence in a hit and miss kind of a way.
What will happen over time is that your ability to connect will be effortless because you have put in a consistent effort to train your body and your mind to make the shift almost instantaneously.
For example, I use to have to get quiet and tune into Spirit before I did a reading for someone. Two decades later, I have mastered the art of moving in consciousness from one side of the line to the other as needed in the moment.
It is not helpful to drive a car while in an expanded state of awareness. Unless, of course, you’re out in the middle of nowhere on a deserted stretch of road. Some of my best insights have come from those places. Driving in the silence for hours, no radio, no music, has a tendency to allow the monkey mind to relax and the higher mind to engage.
Time’s up. Coffee cup is empty. See you next time.
