Does God play favorites? Are some “chosen” for success while others seemingly for failure? Does God want us all to be “Happy, Joyous and Free” or just some of us? Is He really “Our Father” or not? Living on the Spiritual Basis we have chosen to live the examined life and answering these questions defines our beliefs. When we were of the world, spiritual answers were of the bumper sticker or cotton candy variety; short, easy to remember but lacking any real depth, sticky sweet with little spiritual nutritional value. Now being in the world but of God, by choice, we look beyond the easy vacuous greeting card answers to life and living and get down to causes and conditions. A price must be paid, and the price is the surrendering of self.
We alter our lives by taking the road less traveled. Here difficulty arises since we often find ourselves seemingly traveling alone, encountering questions and challenges greater than others are facing. To be clear: everyone faces the same questions and challenges, the form these take alters for everyone, but they are all rooted in the same bedrock and we will either seek answers or live in denial or chemically induced oblivion when the pain of living becomes too great. Selfishness, self-centeredness, self-seeking; fear, in all its guises the veritable roadblock to spiritual freedom.
A relationship with Source requires nothing and everything. Though there is no need to bring your wallet but helping those in need as you are able is highly recommended. You do not have to join anything but congregating with like-minded individuals is a plus. God is the same today as yesterday and promised to be in the future yet living in the light we grow and change day by day, sometimes moment by moment. The path available to all, rich to poor, literate or illiterate, high born or born of the earth, the only real impediment is self-centered fear exacerbating the illusion we are separated from eternal truth. Everything needed to have a conscious contact with God is available to us now, if we are willing to go to any lengths, what an order! but in the light of truth, is there really any other choice?
