Contemplation – Day 31

If you want to strengthen your faith, you will need to soften inside. For your faith to be rock solid, your heart needs to be as soft as a feather. Through an illness, accident, loss, or fright, one way or another, we are all faced with incidents that teach us how to become less selfish and judgmental and more compassionate and generous. Yet some of us learn the lesson and manage to become milder, while some others end up becoming even harsher than before.

I focus on the good I desire to experience.

When I started off on my ‘spiritual journey’, I first attended personal development or self-help seminars. At that time, I was often told that I would understand Spirit more when I become more vulnerable. I detested the word. Vulnerability in my eyes was a weakness that I wanted to avid at any cost. And so I did for quite a while.  I believed that strength was power over matter until I realized that Spirit is the highest power of all.

Today, I understand that there is no access to the world of Spirit and one cannot experience God’s ever present Loving without softening, becoming open and vulnerable to the guidance of Spirit.
