Living a spiritual life is sometimes a matter of balance. It is often recognition of where we are placing our focus. It usually provides us with opportunities to check in with our intentions. For example, which force do we serve? Are we looking to give or to receive? Are we seeking approval and praise, or service and grace? One cannot serve both the ego and Spirit. When we are trying to maintain our spiritual life with grace and with service we find that a peace and a love surrounds us. This is not to say that we will not struggle or falter. It is not to say we won’t stumble or need to pause. But if we continue to keep our Self in balance and if we continue to look to our world for its beauty and love, the more and more we find alignment with Source and those around us begin to respond.
Our minds sometimes like to analyze things and if we are placing an unbalanced amount of energy and time pondering the places, situations, and people in our life that are not in alignment with our efforts, beliefs or practices we spend that energy. It no longer is available to us to use on what is in alignment. It becomes a choice. It becomes a distraction sometimes from the work we need to be doing or are being called to be in service to.
If we focus our attention on maintaining our balance we find a positive energy begins to flow through and around us and we want to be a part of it, more and more frequently. People will begin to recognize the difference in our being, our attitude and our actions. We begin to BE beauty, to BE love, and to BE peace. It is our very essence.
