Are You Sick Of Being Stuck?
The rains are here again, and all is luscious
green. Rain has a special meaning and feeling to
me. I was in my mid-twenties, still married and
very much in love. My wife just gave birth to my
first son, but it was time for us to get out of
town. We were getting ready to move to the family
summer home in Harrow, Ontario in Lake Erie. It
was still somewhat cold in early May, in the
forties and fifties with a few warmer days here
and there. I can remember walking out to the lake
and it just started to sprinkle until I could see
the rain coming over. But, for some reason, I was
completely warm and dry. I must have stood there
for an hour. There was a warm glow around me as my
eyes filled with tears. Soon after that, my
spiritual path escalated and took me on a journey
that has lasted for almost five decades. Teachers
and opportunities to grow beyond myself started
coming into my life.
When the student is ready, the teacher will
appear. And they did.
Since that time, I have been on a path to
spiritual growth. Some of it was very rocky and
most of it very magical. I am not religious at
all, but I do my practices religiously. The key to
success is practice and more practice. If you want
something really bad, you need to research about
it, find a teacher, and practice what you preach.
Is it easy? No! But who’s looking for easy? We are
looking for growth, and that’s not easy. It is
work. Spiritual work is WORK.
We want to break out of our old patterns, look at
the world and beyond from outside of the box. The
dogmas that have been handed down to us are
enslaving, controlling and limiting. A half truth
is a lie.
How can you see your way out of the box?
Make friends and work with people that avoid
violence, cherish love, health and longevity, and
work on avoiding these ten non-virtuous acts:
3. Sexual misconduct
6. Harsh talk/Saying unpleasant things
7. Gossip/Idle talk
9. Wishing someone ill/Cruelty
10. Wrong view/Ignorance
These acts keep us stuck and going in circles of
birth and death over and over. There are formulas
developed by enlightened beings millenniums ago
that will keep you out of the constant round and
round. Take a peek at the program on Internal
Mantra. It will help to free you from the matrix
of system that keeps all of us stuck.
I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth, and
