Spring…. Spiritual Growth 

It’s Spring… And somehow I always tend to forget what Spring means for me spiritually… What’s it’s meant to me for the last 10 years…It usually sneaks up on me in the most unusual way… This area of life that I need growth in… That I need work on…

In one way or another… Well I find the Holg Spirit challenging my soul to grow… To grow deeper and become stronger…

And it’s not always easy… And it’s usually different every Spring… And I usually don’t like it…

Of course in hind sight… Well in hinge sight I’m so grateful for the past Springs of spiritual growth… Because they’ve truly helped shape me into how I’ve become today…

But being in the midst of it… Well that’s a different story…

Because as much as I’d like to be completely confident… Well I see cracks… Areas where I’m not so confident… Where insecurity is leaking all over the place… And I feel like I need a towel to clean the mess of myself up…

But then in the midst… Well I’m reminded that this is part of life… Part of my life specifically… Part of choosing to continue to follow even when I can’t see what next…

And in this moment… Well I am a little nervous… Not as nervous as five years ago… Two years ago… Or even last year… But I’m still nervous…

But I feel like through it all I’m about to press through this season of spiritual growth… Which encourages me to just keep living in today…

        Hmm.. I’m sharing a few of my favorite quotes with a hope to eliminate your fear of the unknown. Please share your thoughts on them.

        “TRUTH is a pathless land.”

        “In a world of energy, your mental expectations are likely to have a profound effect upon the reality that you experience. Human beings are organizers of reality, and your reality will conform to the organizing principles that you impose upon it.”

        An old Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
        The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. “This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
        They thought about it for a minute, and then one child asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
        The old man simply replied, “The one you feed.”

        — I feel if we could pay ‘attention’ to our ‘thoughts’ and act with the right ‘intentions’, there would be no fear of the unknown since our present reality and the future would essentially be defined by our thoughts/thinking.
