about the nature of spirituality have had to
occur. Although in every age, some people
have always known that the nature of life and the
ability to experience spirituality are one and
the same, many wake-up calls have been and always
will be necessary for us to amply grasp this
awareness. All of us are embedded in the
natural need to continually wake up to the
greater spiritual reality.
Many of the
teachings in traditional religions have
circumvented these wake-up calls. Those of
us who sincerely desire to grow spiritually in
the here and now are wise to admit that wake-up
calls are essential to our spiritual unfoldment.
It is easy to avoid them simply by thinking
that we know better than the inner, higher
Presence that will guide us intuitively only as
we recognize that we do not know better than It.
The more that we allow the Inward Presence
to guide us, then the more we discover that
although traditions served earlier insights, we
now are able to know better.
adjustments come as we allow ourselves to accept
that all religions, philosophies, and sciences
have some greater insights to provide us for the
greater wisdom and expressiveness that we desire
to experience. Historically, this includes
that the principles of science that were resisted
for centuries about such concepts as gravitation
and cleanliness were as much about spirituality
as science. This is because the law of
gravity opened up for us ways to experience
greater transportation and communication, and the
principles of cleanliness made possible so many
of the medical miracles we live with today.
In these instances, the spiritual values
make possible greater human connections. Of
course, we can and have used increasing
associations to hurt ourselves through developing
powers of war not known before.
Nevertheless, we will never live in peace
and harmony until we understand that all nations
must be melded into a single global community.
It may not seem
important to many religiously minded people that
spirituality is more greatly experienced through
peace and harmony. This stance says it is!
The alternative is to think that we are all
sinners and that religion simply means to be
saved by an avatar because we are too bad to have
worthiness in and of ourselves. To undo
that kind of thinking, a wakeup call is needed.
To think that the Creator made bad seeds,
and then had to fix the situation so they could
be saved is frightening to say the
least. It is better to understand that God
is perfect, and perfection does not create
imperfection. Yes, we have to admit that we
have made many mistakes; however, they are of our
origin. We can do better as we listen to
the wakeup calls. It was a wakeup call that we
entered the ages of Romanticism and Rationalism.
We learned much through those philosophies.
It was a wakeup call to discover the
rightfulness of sexuality and that repression of
sex was a mistake. To now know that the
conflict between the sexes is providing many of
us with a wakeup call is wonderful. In
time, people as a whole will wakeup to the value
of adjusting their lives in accordance with
spiritual growth. This is the way life
works through us and as us.
We are wise to
cooperate with what the wakeup calls require of
us. We will only succeed with this as we
become inclined to believe that our lives need to
be adjusted, and adjustment begins with thinking
that we need to grow spiritually. It
continues as we instruct our emotions to accept
the higher ideas of how to think and feel.
Our interest to direct our emotions is
essential, or the wakeup calls will not find us
enough open to better living. Ultimately, wakeup
calls are our greatest assistance for developing
our lives to live in a community of persons who
function with love and enlightenment.
The key question
from people desiring to grow more spiritually is
"How do I become more open to wakeup
calls?" The answer is that wakeup
calls only come to persons who are willing to
make adjustments in their thinking, feeling, and
actions. To be adjustable opens up the
spirits of persons to change. We know that
many women have tried to change their husbands
and felt frustrated because their husbands did
not want to be changed. Actually, both women and
men tend to become staid or inflexible as they
grow up physically and as they age more and more.
Spiritual growth can occur only as we
become interested in making decisions that
improve our lives. This is why many persons say
that spiritual healing of the body or mind does
not occur until a person is ready. The one factor
that can make the big difference is to desire to
be adjusted in thoughts, feelings, and actions.
This does not simply happen. It comes
about when we are willing to truly live a life of
value both for ourselves, others, and the
To become willing to
experience personal adjustments can be an
adventure that makes the experience of life
fascinating. Studying the various documents
on this web site can be a great impetus toward
that end. Also, enrolling in
"Spiritual Teaching" classes will
definitely open up one's willingness.
Taking time every day to think and feel
positive contributes much toward this.
Spending a lot of time with other people
who have interests in developing their
spirituality is equally helpful. Attending
lectures on the subject, reading books on it, and
listening to cassette tapes and CDs that are
meant to help you grow your spirit will enhance
your tendency to become ready for personal
progress. Last, but most essentially, to
form the belief that you most find God deep
within yourself, and that God is Unconditionally
Loving, All-Powerful, Everywhere Present, and
Supremely Intelligent will certainly open you up
to the spirituality of greater livingness.
Healings will take place with you, which
are of many kinds, not only of the physical body,
but of anything which has appeared to be a
problem in your life. Some healings will happen
early on, others may take a long time.
Again, these wonderful changes in your life
come to the degree that you willingly make
numerous adjustments in your thoughts, feelings,
