Spiritual Revolution Control your spirit Eleven   Spiritual transformation occurs when we learn how to control our spirit. This requires time, patience and exercising our faith. I like to visualize my spiritual being as a sponge. When this sponge is squeezed by the pressures of everyday life, or the circumstances around me, what comes out? Sometimes I’m surprised at the contents expelled from me. I wonder how that got in there? Well, it gets there by careless supervision. Not being…..

A spiritual Revolution See no evil, hear no evil & speak no evil Ten   We are inundated with negative information daily. When we hear negative information on a regular basis we are bruising our spiritual man. Most information is presented to inform, entertain, instruct or persuade the audience. I feel we need less entertaining and persuading, and more informative and inspirational information. I’m not saying we should get rid of our televisions or stop watching the news. I feel…..

If you recall, I wrote on being creative in my sixth blog of A spiritual revolution. I spoke of retiring from a 35-year nursing career and realizing I had no outside activities that excited me. I vowed to attempt to resurrect the creative side of myself I had abandoned as a child. Well, I went to Hobby lobby and purchased some acrylic paint, canvas, found some images I wanted to sketch and fearlessly started creating. I decided the most that could…..

A spiritual revolution Be mindful! Five   The definition of mindfulness is being aware of where you are and what your doing, without being distracted by the events occurring around you. We are all guilty of physically being in a place, while our thoughts are elsewhere. When this occurs, we are not totally showing up for the event or individual before us. The most important exercise one must master to establish spiritual transformation is to learn to be totally present…..

Spiritual Revolution Viewing the world through the eyes of a child Four   I recall struggling to learn to whistle at around the age of five, and I have been whistling ever since. My maternal grandmother use to tell my mother, ” A whistling woman and a crowing hen, never comes to no good end.” Viewing the world through the eyes of a child would require taking off your blinders. It would require retraining yourself to view the world without…..

Spiritual Revolution Faith of a child Three   The faith of a child is not skeptical, fearful or full of doubt. I think our faith is limited, when we are consumed with emotions of fear and doubt due to our current circumstances. The definition of faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. I define faith with my salvation experience. When I embraced salvation, I was hoping for a transformation. What I experienced…..

Spiritual revolution table for one Two   Spiritual transformation is a spiritual revolution taking over the individual you once knew. We are each capable of leading ourselves into an amazing journey of a complete spiritual transformation. We must begin with accepting the fact that we don’t have to be negatively affected by the circumstances or the individuals around us. We need to look within us, not around us. This revolution is for one, ourselves. To control one’s self is an…..

Spiritual Revolution The eyes of a child One   We spoke of retraining ourselves to engage in the splendor of life. I suggested we view the world Through the eyes of a child. Realistically, we all know we cannot recapture our childhood. We may not be able to recapture our childhood, but we can retrain ourselves to view the world with the eyes of a child. To view the world with joy, trust, peace in our hearts and in awe…..

Welcome to the spiritual revolution. Most of us have accomplished our life objectives and continue to feel unfulfilled. We have somehow lost appreciation for the splendor of life. With an appreciation of life, we find joy, peace, and a since of awe in the beauty around us. When we were children we were overwhelmed with the splendor around us. We awakened each day with anticipation and excitement of the activities before us. We were easily entertained while lying in the…..

I’m stepping out! A new creation! We discussed in past post how an individual may participate in destructive behavior to lessen the pain of a traumatic life changing event in one’s life. I refer to this life changing event as an assault. This behavior may become habitual and may be responsible for the individual disengaging from a healthy lifestyle. The behavior may become so offensive to an individuals loved ones, they eventually alienate the individual from their lives. This offensive…..
