New beginnings. We have had and will have many in our lives and though all are remarkable, the greatest of these however is the day we chose to live on the basis of trusting and relying on a Power Greater Than Ourselves. This conscious decision to Live on the Spiritual Basis begins closing the chapters of our lives lived on self-propulsion and self-will and starts us on the one true journey; our rebirth into the light. Just as was our physical birth, there is pain, made all the more difficult because we are fully conscious for all of it, but is necessary for, Pain is the only instrument sharp enough to cut away the excess of self. Is it any wonder this path is the road less traveled? Our carnal mind seeks, and the secular world offers many “easy” alternatives to address our discomfort, whether it is a “pill for every ill” or some new book or teacher offering a path promising freedom without discomfort. Many pay the path lip service, few willing to pay the price required, a great sadness indeed. Pain is the touchstone of spiritual growth, we can wish it were not so with all our might, but in truth, without pain few, if any, would be moved to act, for complacency is one of the true Adversary’s, Fear, most effective tools.
The Good News however is that once moved to act, we tap into the power of the miraculous, taking a partner in living who has all knowledge and power, the True Source of all. The promise is that once we have embarked on this new beginning, steadfast in willingness and refusing to be turned by the Adversary, life will take on new meaning. We will comprehend Serenity and we will know peace, no matter what our current circumstances, we are, in fact, reborn, Freedom in spirit personified.
