Are You Preparing - NOW - For The Future?
March 9, 2023
The world is going through a tremendous shift. Are you aware of this shift and are you preparing for it both materially and spiritually? This is a time of great promise though there is much turmoil. It's a time for tremendous growth. Are you willing to learn your coming life lessons in order to graduate to the next level in your spiritual journey?
There's no sense in trying to escape the next step in your spiritual growth. At this time in your earthly existence...you have no choice. Either you become more consciously aware of your existence or you will continue to suffer. This calling is for all Souls on earth. Humanity is on the march.
What Is Meant By Suffering?
Many don't understand what is meant by suffering. Though it may not be apparent to you now, if you are not consciously making a spiritual effort then you are suffering because you are oblivious to your true self...the Soul. Many call this suffering "bad karma" because they weren't aware of their actions and in their eyes things "just happened."
Circumstances never just happen. They're put into motion through our words, thoughts, and deeds. When you aren't aware that what you think and do is "who you are" you create a pattern that will result in good or ill for you.
The earth holds no significance except for your spiritual growth which is accomplished by getting to know The Creator of this universe. The challenges put before us provide us with opportunities to advance our Souls to the point where the world holds no more power over us. Remember the words of Jesus "be of good cheer I have overcome the world."
Whether you think Jesus in the Bible is allegorical or a real person, His teachings have never been equaled. As you grow in consciousness you will better understanding the metaphysical meaning of His words.
I have a saying:
""Suffering and happiness are two sides of the same coin. You are happy after much suffering if you have learned the lesson placed in front of you. However, you are suffering because you haven't learned the lessons put before you...and until you do, the suffering will continue.
Happiness takes effort; therefore, you must relentlessly hold on to every drop of spiritual awareness you gain with eternal vigilance." -ProsperityJoy
Preparing For The Future And Your Freedom
How do you prepare for the next phase in your spiritual growth? Well....the first thing you need is the desire for growth. Unfortunately, that desire doesn't normally manifest until some trouble comes into our lives and we discover that nothing can fix it except by getting right with The One who created us.
The second thing is that you must be determined to put God first. It's not easy to do so it will take every bit of willpower and sometimes won't-power that you have to accomplish this. You must train your consciousness to live in the NOW because NOW is all we have. Everything else is a delusion...and that delusion is hard to break. But break it you must!
Remember, putting God first doesn't mean that you should lead a dull live devoid of love, friendships, and goals. It means that while going through life you know that those "desires" will not result in the ultimate happiness you are seeking. Only God can do that. Being attached to this world will result in sadness and dismay. If you put God first while satisfying your worthwhile worldly ambitions, you can avoid the pitfalls of the delusion affecting so many today.
God is the ultimate happiness and true freedom. Once you realize this, you can better navigate your way through life without the problems and cruxes that those who aren't aware fall into. And if you do run into any misadventures remember that " you are under grace and God is there to help you through each and every one of them."
Then last but not least you must use every ounce of strength you have to make your contact with God your most important commitment. Do you have good spiritual books to read? Mark the pages and highlight passages that inspire you. Do you meditate? Do it everyday at a time when there is quiet. Have a special chair that you use for that purpose. That way, you know that whenever you go to sit in that specific chair you are prepared mentally for your meditation time.
And pray.....pray out loud or pray inwardly. But pray! You can even repeat prayers or affirmations silently while you're out and about. Just a sentence like "I am grateful" or a simple word like "thank you" can also be a prayer.
Your entire life is a prayer but by praying consciously....you take control of your destiny thereby taking control of your future. And this is how you prepare NOW for the future for all we are and our being is what is NOW....there is no other time.
"Life is joy, life is peace if you keep your mind stayed on me." The Creator knows you...now it's time to know Him. Yours Truly.....ProsperityJoy
