Thought of the Day: June 14, 2018 – Spiritual Change
Spiritual change happens when people are ready for it.
Making a spiritual change can impact your decisions about your future, your family and others in our society. This can result in positive difference that you were not expecting to see.
A spiritual change is needed for many so they may realize the goals they have.
In order for this to happen you must ask yourself, “How do I see God?”
When answering this question take a look deep within yourself. Once you know how you see God you may want to ask yourself a second question.
“How does God see me?”
This question will cause you to look at your character and how you conduct your life. Answer this question from the perspective that God is standing in front of you and tell you all the good and not so good about you.
Based on the information you get, what changes would you need to make to get back to the path you know you should be on?
Be truthful with yourself, remember God knows everything about you. So open up those “boxes” that hold your deepest darkest secrets and deal with them.
To experience spiritual change you need to understand one faith is not geographical. You can be living anywhere in the world and practice any faith, religion or spiritual practice you want.
- “How do I view people from a faith or culture that is not the same as mine?”
- “Do I have a negative view on how I see people from other cultures?”
- “Am I understanding of their view even if they are not the same as mine?”
You have to be accepting of those from other faiths to experience a spiritual awakening. Take an interest in cultures different from yours.
Do you know why you have such a strong relationship to your own personal faith, culture or religious background? Do you believe what you believe because you were told to do so from a young age or did you study the doctrine yourself and form your own opinions?
Spiritual understanding occurs when you have the ability to look at things from a different perspective. This opens your eyes and give you the ability to change how you view yourself and others around you.
Where did your understanding and concept of God originate?
Did you read about God and then form your thoughts on who God must be? Or are you following the definition that is given to us in all religious and spiritual books?
Do not put God in a box and expect him to be the way you see him. Contemplate, why would God be the way I think he is and not the way others see him?
To experience spiritual change your ego needs to change before you see that truth that God in much bigger, can do more and is more in charge of what is happening than we understand.
Praying can connect you to the divine understanding. There is no right or wrong way to pray other than do it with the right heart.
I was born into a Hindu family. As I grew up I always had a lot of question. Questions my parents could not always answer about my faith. As I grew older and was able to experience more of the world around me.
I started reading books from other religions. I learned about Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. The more I read books from these cultures the more I enjoyed what I was reading.
I have always kept an open mind as I search for answers on my spiritual journey.
Although I have not adopted all the practices from every religion I consider myself to be of all religious backgrounds and faiths. How else can I begin to understand all 7.5 billion people on Earth?
May spiritual journey tells me that we are all one, so I can change my religion as I see fit. Maybe you need to do this in your own life? For me it was the right thing to do. I opened my eyes and decided not to separate myself from others.
