“Faith without works is dead.” There is an eternal question we all must address: are we willing to go to any length for a Spiritual awakening? No one can answer this question for another, and it is only truly answered through our actions and regardless of path of enlightenment chosen, one of the side effects of walking this path is often feeling unworthy, the sense of “who am I” to suggest to others how to grow spiritually. The adversary, Fear, will cajole us into inaction, to downplay the work we have done, to soften the import of the truths we hold in our heart of hearts because we are afraid of looking pompous or self-righteous.
We must turn the “who am I” into “I am who” walks the path that leads to freedom, the freedom from the bondage of self the adversary revels in. Fear will bluff us into inaction, try to convince us the well-earned lessons of our growth into warriors of the light somehow lack value, our demonstrated freedom should be kept secret, lest we appear full of ourselves. As Children Of The Light we must stand ready, available, to testify to the work we have done and be counted, when asked. Will some, still locked in the bondage of self, disparage, perhaps even attack us? Yes, but take heart, for this is just another indication you are on the right path.
By stepping out in faith, trusting in a Power Greater Than Ourselves as we have come to understand it, to use us as instruments of Divine Love and Knowledge at whatever our current level of understanding is, we can alleviate fear, pain and suffering for others and light the way for those still lost in the bondage of self.
