Heart Service or Lip Service?

I didn’t know it, but for many, many years I was paying lip service to my spiritual awakening and my life reflected that. I was still unhappy. I was still struggling. I was still complaining. I was still having $$$ challenges, relationship challenges, career challenges and every other kind of challenge.

So many spiritual seekers play small through only paying lip service to their spiritual practice. If you’re thinking that you can read books and take classes and acquire intellectual information and that will change your life, you’ll be waiting a long, long time for your healing. Love is the healer and Love is not in any book. It’s in your heart. Love is the king in the kingdom. Seek the kingdom first and ALL else WILL be added unto you. What part of ALL ELSE is unclear? Enough with seeking outside ourselves! Take the leap!

It took quite a while, but finally I became really interested in holding myself accountable. I developed a desire to see how committed I could become. I had the feeling that truly dedicating myself in my heart and living the Love to the VERY best of my ability would be my healing.

I’m so glad that I followed my intuition on this and made the change. It was SO difficult for me to hold myself accountable in the beginning. I had such a strong resistance to it.

I noticed I would give myself permission to abandon my commitment at the slightest provocation – but then, little by little I decided to hold myself accountable. I decided to stop playing small and open my heart to Love.

I have been completely and totally amazed at how much healing I’ve had through holding myself accountable. If you’re feeling that it’s too hard and you can’t do it, please remember that is only a thought and it’s definitely NOT true. Eventually, you WILL do it. Why wait?

An UNBELIEVABLE amount of good unfolds when you’re willing to hold yourself accountable to your loving heart and be whole hearted rather than just paying lip service.


I AM willing to go for the good!
