The other day I was hanging out with my pal, Gary Renard, author of Disappearance of the Universe. We were talking about how spiritual seekers can get completely sidetracked by studying spiritual teachings while delaying making the commitment to live in alignment with them.
Since 2007, I’ve been offering a free weekly A Course In Miracles Phone Study Group on Mondays and folks have been downloading them and using them to support their spiritual practice. I’m dedicated to offering these calls because week after week, I consistently encounter spiritual students who have been studying A Course In Miracles for many years and who are still struggling with confusion, suffering, regret, resentment, shame, blame and all kinds of intense challenges.
What I’d like to share with you is my own experience, and if you’ve read Gary Renard’s books, you know it has been his experience as well. In my personal studies, I consistently encountered the teaching:
Seek first the Kingdom of God and All Else will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
Even though I’d heard that teaching SO many times, one day, I actually understood it. It came alive in my mind because I was willing to truly accept it. The teaching came alive in my heart because I was willing to let go of seeking and NOT finding.
What happened to me was, I decided to live as though I believed the teaching to be true. I set out to prove it for myself. I stepped into faith and I decided to learn how to trust Spirit in every moment. I decided to put that commitment to seeking the Kingdom, first , above all else. Now, If I ask you – Where is the Kingdom? You’re going to say – It’s within, of course, we all know that.
The Kingdom is not outside ourselves, it’s not in the world of effects, it’s within. This work has transformed my life, it’s transformed me from an angry and judgmental person into a loving and peaceful person. I once was lost, but now I’m found! This is the greatest gift I’ve ever received and I’m the one who gave it to myself!
