Spiritual Understanding

 The power of God is within you. Open yourself to the wisdom, discernment and inspiration of God that is within. Take time to listen to the voice of God. Charles Fillmore, paraphrasing the Buddha, said “don’t believe something because I said it or a great sage wrote it but take it to heart and listen to the still small voice and take only what is true for you.” 

Spiritual understanding allows us discern between the voice of ego and the still small voice within. The ego voice, rooted in the past and in beliefs that may not lead you to your highest both relative or spiritual good, will always clamor for attention. The voice of Spirit is gentle, soft, and undemanding taking us beyond the ego judgments to a place of inner knowing and it takes training to understand the difference.

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.”  Albert Einstein
