As I lay here thinking and watching different preachers on this Sunday afternoon I find myself wondering what is spirituality? One definition is: the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.
I noticed that no where in that definition is God.
I’m embarking on my on mental journey. I’ve been taught that the love of God starts in the mind. In the mind is also ego. In the mind there’s no one else but you. Your thoughts, your truth and your evil. Your soul attaches to the body. The mind is different so to speak. Example your body doesn’t tell the mind what to do. The mind tells the body what to do but if you have a wounded mind well eventually you will have a weakened body.
My focus right is on the mind’s journey. I watched Rev Run speak and watched how Joel Osteen speaks. I watched Martin Luther King and read a blog “5 ways to transform negative self talk” online with Mindbodygreen.com. In an effort to learn how to express my walk or journey better. Rev Run said something along he lines of walk the talk or walk the walk and talk the talk. My understanding of it is to mean what you say by showing it in your life.
The way of the Lord is through forgiveness and love. That begins in your mind by solely yourself. Nobody stands with you but God at enlightenment. Being spiritual is a soul thing. But being godly well that’s a mentality.
Talking positively about yourself and others. Can free your spiritual as well as your mental. But forgive yourself when that doesn’t happen. This is the reality of a death driven life. But it can be lived in a life given way. I’m still learning and a lot of my speaking is self geared because I am also seeking to put the kingdom of God first. But we all have the availability to achieve greatness in Christ who strengthens us. Ours (a word I’m learning to use in these post thanks to a little help😉) is a life divine. I mean that by putting God first in every mental moment you have leads to the peace that surpasses all understanding. I got a chance to feel that for the first time.
My words are my calling card so to speak and I am working on using them in a way that is more inviting so please bare with me on this journey. I had no idea my life was changing in this direction so please send me your prayers because I am going to need them. 🙏🏼
I believe in the powers of love and understanding. I am but a prodigal son finding the way back home. Home is where the heart is as the book that I am reading points out. And that home is with God.
Wishing you and everyone a happy Sunday
