As Thomas Kempis wrote, “Faith is required of thee, and a sincere life, not loftiness of intellect, nor deepness in the mysteries of God”.
Often, I pray to God to always restore my little faith. The Lord give and the Lord take away… if God will take away everything from me, I beg of Him not my little faith.
Writing some of my deep thoughts really gave me reservation. But this is a general sharing of the beauty of individuality.
Anyway, once, I was sharing to my very good friend how we can be our REAL SELF, not obliging, blaming or pointing people of YOUR “not so good” condition. We are the only one who can create our path. We paint our lives whether you like it colorful or blunt. We are the director of our own life. We always have the power to choose the path we want to traverse. We are free to believe and free to begin!
As much as I remain silent and not to be misjudged being TOO spiritual, or what I mean is putting a “spiritual band-aid” to the problem, I kept silent and start being a kid at heart, just being myself.
I believe that being too spiritual or evading by putting a “spiritual band-aid” to our unpleasant condition is not healthy. I definitely must agree! I’ve been in that situation before. But after I graduated from the RCW Foundation (Reintegration for Care and Wholeness) I learned that I must faced squarely all this evil in my heart.
Now, I remain healthy by the grace of God. A general question: Is praying and claiming being in the grace of God a VERY spiritual thing? I don’t think so. If you are doing something like praying the rosary everyday, going to holy mass everyday, or simply having your morning exercise. Your body and your mind will be conditioned to these and will become an everyday habit. Another example is, if you think gossip is just a normal thing, and this is your daily vitamin that keep you in good condition, then this become natural and a normal thing to do.
With the grace of God… the soul is directed to what is divine… the divine within you; (I hope I will not sound too spiritual or misjudged on this okay); What is the right thing to do when you are in God’s grace? What is rational in God’s grace? You will never fail, because you’ll not just understand the things and the circumstances that are going on whether good or bad. But by God’s grace, you’ll be directed and His wisdom and understanding will surely be with you.
People with stubborn mind will never understand these. Is this being too spiritual? Is this unhealthy? Is being with God’s presence every moment is unhealthy? Is putting God in the center of everything, unhealthy? My answer is a clear NO. If you are living or simply trying to live day by day His commandment of love, you’ll never go wrong. You will experience a contentment of the heart even in the worse situation.
How true? Read the stories in the bible, open your eyes to the reality of the world, watch a movie how good always conquer evil, look at the poverty and the dying people around you, watch CNN & BBC, review the history of the great saints, kings and rulers. Everything are just a circle, it goes round and round and round… so be not surprised my friend. A sincere life, not loftiness of intellect, nor deepness in the mysteries of God… but your sincere life and your faith will bring you to God’s grace.
