In order to truly walk through that spiritual door, you must bring nothing with you. Anonymous
For a long time, I believed that I can hold onto what matters to me and become one completely with my inner spiritual being. This is a lie, of course. Like all the other lies I have believed along the spiritual path, it is the work of my ego-driven human conscious mind. This deception and misdirection was intended to keep me separate from my spiritual self, my higher mind and soul. It is a popular fantasy, especially in the west, that you can have your spiritual cake and eat it too. It is the idea that you don’t actually have to make deep changes; you can go through the motions and get the same results.
The further along the spiritual path I go, the more these lies and deceptions are exposed. I didn’t think I was hiding behind things my conscious mind was holding onto, but I do now. As the layers of old patterns and beliefs get scrapped off, and I move further along my path, my higher mind takes me to the next step of moving more completely into her energy.
Affirmation: Each day I am guided by my higher mind and soul to become more of who I truly am.
