The Importance of Spirituality
The Importance of Spirituality
Since, you are pure spirit, it is very important that you connect with your nature, which is pure spirituality. Why is it important to connect with who you are? Because, this is the greatest part of you and the part that is always connected to me…Your Source!
You have thought in the past that your source was your wit, your earthly talents, your intelligence, or other physical attributes that you came in with to this lifetime. These are only the tip of the iceberg, my child, and only represent the smallest part of who you really are. Are they important? Yes, but in only a small capacity. Do they help you on this earthly plane? Yes, but they can also be your greatest detriment, if this is allowed to be the controlling influence in your earthy existence.
One of the biggest mistakes my children can make is depending too much on these natural resources. This might sound again like irony to you. After all, you worked so hard to get to where you are today, that it would only be natural to think these natural attributes and gifts are what you should focus upon. Your worldly arena, and surroundings, so praises those who have excelled in this natural environment, you oftentimes forget about your spirituality and relationship with the divine. This becomes big to you and I become small, and so does your spirituality, it becomes small.
Some of you are so starved for this attention; you will exhaust all your natural resources to get these accolades and praises of mankind. Many of you never got it completely from your earthly parents, and so, you will do almost anything to get it from others. This phenomenon of not getting what you want from your parents actually propels you into rapid advancement of the ego. This rapid advancement of ego hinders your spirituality and connection with me. It is not who you are but is a mere persona you have erected to cause others to like you, admire you, and praise you.
When you put your focus on others, and their perception of you, you live in the world of illusion and pain. The more you try to aspire and climb the ladder that has been created for you by ego, the more, you find yourself disconnected from me. You are never disconnected from me; only in your ego-mind does it seem you are disconnected. You are more aware of your physicality, and your creation in ego, that this causes your spirit to be diminished, and on the back burner, so to speak.
It is like you are living your entire existence for others now. When this happens, it seems that your spirit, the eternal part of you, the greater part of you, is diminished. The spiritual part of you becomes inactive. You focus on that which puts bread on your table, and on others “buttering” your bread, so to speak.
This focus puts all your attention on that which is outside yourself, thus putting reduced attention on who you really are…divinity in a body.
When you reverse this process of focus from the outward to the inward, your spiritual nature begins to accelerate and move forward. This movement forward will not be attained in religion alone. It must start with an awareness of who you really are. Spirit is constantly striving with you to help you to become aware of the biggest part of you. This spirituality is not the tip of the iceberg; it is that which is the biggest part of the iceberg…that which lies beneath the surface. Once, one begins to tap into this that is bigger than anything that is seen, then all heaven breaks loose. (God does have a sense of humor). When this awareness of who you really are takes place and begins to take the bigger part of your energy, then all heaven rejoices at this awareness. Heaven begins to poise itself for this spirituality and your spiritual growth.
Oftentimes, it takes one a while before the light of their spirituality begins to dawn on their awareness. Sometimes it will take quite a shaking of one’s reality, as they see it, to come into this spiritual awareness. This shaking does not have to be. It can happen easier if one will just stop, look, and listen for Spirit. Spirituality, or the awareness of who you are, does not have to be in shaking you. But, Spirit does not give up on you like others who have given up on you. Spirit has great patience and love for you and will never give up on you. Spirit will shake you though if that is what your soul has called for. It remembers what your deepest desires were before you came to earth, even when you have forgotten. Spirit never forgets, it always remembers.
The only time Spirit will not strive with you, constantly reminding you of who you are, is when you tell Spirit to take a back seat. Spirit will always honor your path, even if the path is a path of destruction or demise. You are always loved unconditionally and you will wake up some day to who you really are…a piece of me, your God, and your biggest fan and supporter.
When this spiritual awareness finally dawns on you, all heavens resources come to your aid. When you finally give up on the ego-self, I take over. This is a day of great of rejoicing and celebration in heaven. All, heaven, focuses its attention on this one who has finally come home in spirit. Not, that you have ever been away from me, but you are finally aware of who you are, and your divinity. This spirals you into a new realm that is full of peace, joy and love. You start to feel this divine connection that I have always felt for you. Now, you feel as if you are cradled in the divine…and you are, my sweet child. You truly are… all the time, and in every moment.
Your new, spiritual awareness will be the dawning of a new day for you. This awareness of who you are will be a journey for you, and not a destination. It will be your greatest asset on your earthly existence as it will connect you to the source of all power, love and all that is my nature.
Let it be known to you that although you are in this new awareness, this new vital relationship with your Higher Self, not always will this be something pleasant or welcome by others around you. You might be misunderstood, or branded as weird. You will disassociate yourself with your ego…the one who has kept you from this awareness. It might even seem to you that you have lost everything you worked so hard to obtain in the ego existence. You never really lose anything my child. In me, and in your new awareness is all gain and delight. It is just the fact that many others don’t see eye to eye with you anymore. Some will think you are a devil. Some will call you evil.
They did this to my child Jesus too. He said that they would do it to you too. You might even be surprised when it comes from the ultra religious, those that think they have a corner on the spiritual. Oftentimes, your greatest persecution and hurt will come from these my precious children who are uninformed and living the ego-life. Just because they say they are spiritual, does not necessarily mean that they are in-deed. All those who are spiritual must come with the basis of love as their supreme guiding light. Without the love, all is a sounding brass and a tinkling symbol, no matter how hard they try to convince you otherwise.
Without a foundation of love, unconditional love, like that which I have for all of my creation, there is nothing but emptiness and vanity. Anything that does not resemble love is a chasing of the wind and vanity, total emptiness, even as my son Solomon proclaimed in scripture.
So, please start my beloved child by asking me to show you, making you aware of who you really are, the spiritual being that you really are. I will always answer this prayer that comes from your heart. It is an instant bull’s-eye when it comes to being answered speedily. All heaven is poised to come to your aid when you are ready for this new awareness. Ask, my sweet child, and it shall be your reality…one you will never be sorry for…only glory, honor and praise comes with the answer to this prayer.
You are greatly loved my beloved,
Your Father-Mother God
