A Life-Changing Decision

“Make spiritual growth your number one priority.” These words, buried in the middle of a paragraph of text on a flyer advertising a variety of classes, literally seemed to light up and take on a glow.

Yes, they were glowing and just as the church bells of old were used to gather people together, the words “Make Spiritual Growth Your Number One Priority” began to clang in my head and call to me, pulling me toward them. Living words. Powerful words that I could feel in my heart and, as I embraced them and they moved into my consciousness, I responded with a joyful, “Yes, of course!”

And in that moment, those words became a decision. And life changed. Like the turning of a kaleidoscope, a new pattern emerged.

What happens when you make this decision to make your spiritual growth your number one priority?

Everything falls into place. Prioritizing everything else becomes easy. Organizing your day becomes simple. Decisions about money are made with grace. In short, your life becomes balanced.

Magic happens

There is something magical that happens at the “decision point.” The decision point itself has a power. Once you make the decision, at that point, it becomes easy to follow through with your action, without you “doing” a whole lot to make it happen.

With this new decision, I was able to create sacred space in my day. Upon awakening in the morning, before even getting out of bed, I connected with Spirit, realizing our Oneness. At the beginning of work, I would take a moment to remember that connection again, spending a few minutes to calm the frantic pace of the external world and just breathe, realizing, “I live and breathe and have my being in God. God lives and breathes through my being. I am One with the Universe.” In the evening, contemplation, study, and quiet time became a food that was as necessary as eating.

New opportunities emerge

New opportunities for growth appeared. Classes and books “found me” without me even searching. Different people came into my life. Decisions about whether to spend the money for spiritual classes, courses and seminars were no longer an issue or even a consideration. I wanted this!

Shortly after spiritual growth became so important to me, I realized how conditioned we are to NOT grow spiritually. We are locked into a system that demands we spend the majority of our time getting ready to go to work, getting to work, working, and coming home from work, basically to pay for a house and car. By the time you fix food, do the dishes and some laundry, and take a shower, how much time is left for your spiritual growth? It is as if we are deliberately being misdirected. Our focus is all “out there.”

To summarize the point, in the short-term, what happens when you make your spiritual growth your number one priority is this: Time management and money management decisions fall into place; new opportunities for growth come your way.

What happens in the long-term? Wow! Where do I start? In the long-term, farther down the road, you will reap the rewards of actual spiritual growth. It is as if you become a different person. Your inner reality becomes the center of your being. And you never stop growing; consciousness is ever-unfolding. All because of one life-changing decision…

Make spiritual growth YOUR number one priority.

It is time for the world to stop being fearful. Fear breeds fear. Love breeds love. One cancels the other. Which will you choose – love or fear?

If you decide to create more love in your life, the approach is simple. Spiritual awareness enhances the natural flow of the universal consciousness called love. By developing your inner spiritual connection, you attract and transmit more pure, unconditional love and all things will be added to you because of this.

Your relationships will grow deeper and more harmonious. You will appreciate yourself more, simply for being the child of God that you are. You’ll prosper in your professional dealings as you become more creative and, therefore, more competent and more valuable to the people to whom you provide a service.

It’s simply a choice. To develop love, start by ignoring the fears that face the rest of the world. Don’t let those issues of fear bring you down. That’s what they’re designed to do. If you let them bring you down, they will disempower you.

Instead, focus on what will make a difference within yourself. Your domain – the realm under your control – is within you. You can change that which is within yourself. Other people are outside of your domain, so change that which you can – that which is within yourself. Then, paradoxically, you will also effect positive change in the world because you are part of the global mind consciousness.

Just as there is an atmospheric belt around the world, there is also a mind belt around the world. This mind belt is constantly fed by the thoughts and emotions of every human upon the planet. People are like radio transmitters and receivers, only the energy is mind energy, not radio waves. You constantly receive mind energy from the collective mind belt, process it through your own consciousness and transmit it back into the mind belt.

Mind energy consists of thoughts and feelings. It is a definite energy, even though it is much more subtle than physical energies like light or electricity. Mind energy is conditioned and directed by human will.

You can be affected by the collective mind belt or you can decide for yourself how you will react to life’s events. Choose now whether you will be affected by every twist and turn in the game of life, or whether you will be one of the few who create the game.

Independent thinkers are the trendsetters in the mind belt. The way you think affects every other human upon the planet. The way you feel affects every other human upon the planet.

Because higher frequencies of thought and feeling have much more power than lower frequency ones, the unconditional love that you generate through your spiritual practices has a huge influence upon humanity.

Choose the development of love through regular, dedicated spiritual practices and you will be changing the world. At the end of the day, the one thing that really counts is the amount of spiritual growth that you have achieved.

Make spiritual growth your number one priority in life.
