ONE OF THE MOST Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS I GET: WHAT STARTED YOUR QUEST ON SPIRITUALITY? GREAT QUESTION! Simple answer once I figured it out!
2 very important things happened between the ages of 8 – 12 years old. I entered the wonderful world of puberty and got introduced to religion! Quite a lot for a changing kid to handle! Hormones fill your body with chemical changes and your body explodes! Yep, that just about describes it! AND on top of all of that , I found out while getting baptized and growing up in religion that I was considered by GOD and all God fearing people to be an ABOMINATION! Sentenced to HELL and “shunned” by society!
And so by the age of 15, I was cast upon the world condemned by GOD and shunned by society!
My Guardian Angel (or Angels), Heavenly Guides, and Spiritual Guides, whatever you want to call them arranged these conditions to lead me down the path toward my awakening to my true Spirituality; I am a child of the One GOD and a beautiful spiritual being. And so my quest began to work my way through this lifetime and realize my true being and to help others to find and embrace theirs!
There is a lot going on and around in the mind of a 15 year old. The God of the Old Testament seemed to be a wild and crazy guy at times, I imagined that I really was in trouble by being “different”! And then The New Testament God was a really nice person that appeared to love everybody, like with their warts and all! So questions and topics like the above whirled around in my head. I started reading about other religions and over the years discovered that all of the religions on the planet had some and others a lot of the same ideas and “rules of engagement”! One interesting thing that really got me was that some religions declared that if you didn’t believe and worship THEIR GOD, you were certainly going to HELL and burn FOREVER! After comparing religions I started looking for “enlightenment”………..there just had to be something that I could latch on to and really believe in. By the time I hit the late 20’s I had decided that what I truly felt in my heart and soul had to be what was “my true religion”. And here I am WAY DOWN THE ROAD of this lifetime and I’m happy, content and eager to learn more everyday about where I’m going and what I’m doing with it here and after!
When confronted with my “being different”, I’ve learned that the best answer is a question, “I don’t believe GOD makes mistakes, do you”?
Tips about meditating:
- Have a realistic plan: pick a time to meditate EVERY DAY………….like 5 minutes a day just before bedtime or getting up. Have a timer and when the time is up stop. After a while you can up the time and or change the place to a better time/place for you.
- Don’t expect some preconceived notion of “what is supposed to happen” during meditation. You may just have a quiet time at first……..not be able to get rid of “chatter” in your mind, but stick with it. You may see light or colors or shapes or shadows or people or clouds or you may see or hear nothing. And that is o.k.! As you practice, your mind will quiet down and your subconscious mind will take over and handle the trials and tribulations that are normally on your mind while you are awake (conscious). During this time your body has time to heal and comfort your soul.
So whatever you do to “meditate” even if it is just stopping the world and resting for a few minutes you can’t go wrong! You’ll feel better and act better too. 🙂
