Success is characteristically measured by possessions, popularity, living the “good” life and so on. Chasing “secular” health is about looking and feeling good at any price, taking, using, and doing whatever to achieve something which is passing at best. Conversely Spiritual success is measured by the peace, poise, and serenity we demonstrate when facing life’s inevitable difficulties, and while possessions are to be enjoyed, they lack any real spiritual significance and if they stand in the way of our Spiritual growth, are easily cast aside. Spiritually our health is not only about the body; as Good Shepherds we do not misuse it or ignore its care, but we now understand we are so much more than this flesh, that we truly are a Spark of the Divine, eternal, existing before this flesh was conceived, existing beyond its certain return to the dust and ash from which it came. Secular: the opinions of others have power to color our choices and decisions. Spiritually: the opinions of others none of our business, for when we are right with the Miraculous all other relationships and conditions can and will fall into place, harmoniously.
As we transition from living on the secular basis to Living on the Spiritual Basis our whole attitude about life and living changes. The feeling of uselessness and self-pity disappears, we lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Spiritual Sight, intuitive thinking and inspiration become operative in our lives. So, Spiritual or secular, harmony or confusion, freedom or bondage, the choice is ours. “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Living on the Spiritual Basis we are no longer of this world, but we are in it; life simplified, no longer at odds with people, places, or things. Truly free of the fear driven life, a wonderful demonstration of true success.
