How can I be Spiritual without feeling selfish?

thoughtful girl

How can I be spiritual without feeling selfish is something I have felt for a long time in the past it is like a shadow over your head it is a feeling of doing wrong or not being good enough because a spiritual person has to be good..!

How can I be Spiritual if I feel guilty?


In my quest for Spiritual Growth, I have encountered many of these situations where my heart tells me to do something I feel right and later on my mind recriminates me for doing it and it doesn't end there it keeps going on and on if you allow it can happen for years. My spiritual troubles are with faith maybe my faith is not big enough, maybe like the bible says with a faith of the size of grain marvelous things can happen but how can I not feel selfish when asking God for something?

Should I follow the herd?


Spiritual teachers say ask and focus on what you want, but if I ask it means there is a need to fulfill when we are supposed to already have everything… so then again how can I be spiritual without feeling selfish?  Should I follow the herd and not to pay attention to what my heart tells me? God knows already what you want, but He always gives you what you need at the moment, so why then bother with asking for something that it is not coming the way you wanted it? That leaves me with the answer of A Course in Miracles “Do Nothing” people might say “you have no dreams” “what music would you like to play” we all look for money, love, health or happiness because there are many people out there telling you to, maybe my spiritual troubles have caused me a lot of trouble…!! Following the herd is not the answer learn how to live without guilt and blame be free.

What is the right question to ask?


The right question to ask when you think how can I be spiritual without feeling selfish?  Would Be: Father show me the  way to do this you know better than I do what my Divine Purpose is take my hand and guide me” and then Do Nothing only listen to your heart and wait trusting the right answer will come, but not from where you expect it to come so don’t waste time trying to imagine how it will happen only trust that it will, looking for Spiritual Growth always comes with a reward from I least expect it.

In Conclusion


I must say the Ego always plays games with us feeling selfish is one of its traps to keep you stuck in the past or in the game of guilt stop the vicious circle by stepping out of it… .Now when you ask again HOW CAN I BE SPIRITUAL WITHOUT FEELING SELFISH? Remember, you cannot be selfish when what you are and have come from the Divine Presence within you…

God bless you all.

How to live without Guilt and Blame

Photo by Waiting for the word flickr
Reading my favorite book “A course in miracles” I stopped at chapter 13 where it talks about guiltlessness and invulnerability then I Thought How to live without guilt and blame in a world full of it? Doing what the Holy Spirit tells you to.


How to  live without Guilt?


According to Holy Spirit the son of God (us) has never sinned, we are the ones giving the Ego all our power how can we see what we really are if our whole life it has been full of guilt because  of the sins of our past? The past does not exist and then how can you be guilty? For us to learn how to live without guilt and blame have to believe that we are the Son of God, stop feeling guilty for what you think you’ve done and that you’ll be or must be punished for it that’s the Ego’s idea not God’s idea.


What makes us to blame?



We were taught to blame ourselves and others since early childhood, so How to live without guilt and blame now that we are adults? The guilt for our “sins” it's what makes you blame, blame your life, friends, family, wife, pet, etc.,… there is no limit for blaming when you don’t have the courage to stop following and listening to your Ego’s voice which is the one telling you all that bunch of lies about who you are, the Ego teaches you to attack yourself by feeling guilt but if you recognize that there is no reason to feel this way because time does not exist so then the past is gone

The Ego’s voice is always telling you lies and showing you a world of illusion as guilt and blame are, you are so used to give all your power to the Ego that you really believe what you see as your “reality” and thinking about yourself as Pure, Holy and Powerful is unbelievable to you… why? Because you live in the darkness of your Ego Mind. The Ego is not another thing, but the part of your mind that believes is separated from the rest.


Conclusion


Give your troubles to the Holy Spirit for a good reason God gave Him to us it is easier to rely on Him than to try to fix them by yourself, leave the past behind do not attack yourself anymore, learn how to live without guilt and blame and the best teacher for it is the Holy Spirit who is there always waiting to be called, see that you are already the Perfect loving Child of God… is this too hard to accept? Why?



This post, it is based on the book A Course in Miracles

Why people worship Buddha

Why  people worship Buddha for luck? This is a question I always had in my mind I myself used to rub its belly in the believe that would bring me luck…. Money to be sincere. This time I want to talk about Buddha next time I will go with religions worshiping idols, but that will be in the next post.

People worship Buddha

A lot of people do, believing that doing so their luck will change and it does if you really focus on what you want, but here comes the “but” it is not because of the image or idol you have worshiped but because of the faith you have in it. You can take a rock and put on an altar worship it, have faith in it and voila!! Your request will be fulfilled.

Humans need to believe in something

Humans need to believe in something outside themselves its easier to ask for money to a deity outside than a look and make changes within yourself. Buddha didn’t say to people worship me and I will give you wealth that was a man's creation I remember several years ago I used to have a little Buddha in a silver platter with three red apples to bring me money and sales in my business I also used to pray to it… back then I was Catholic…!! Can you see how false I was? I prayed for money to one who did not believe in prayer to an idol… how funny.

But why Buddha?

Because in our society money has become the main necessity and Buddha figure is use a lot to bring wealth… In Feng Shui Buddha figures are used  to move energies, attract money (again), happiness, health or love the problem is not whether you worship or use as an idol or not but why? Why you keep looking outside yourself when the same Siddharta Gautama the Buddha taught to go into the silence and find the balance within yourself then you will find abundance.

I am not saying here that asking for money is bad, not at all what I’m saying is why  to ask to a Buddha idol for what you want instead learn the Buddha way to balance your life and start creating what you really want from a different perspective.

Concluding
Why  people worship Buddha? Well, like I said before, it's easier and safer to keep yourself in a comfort zone where you don’t question anything, just doing what everyone else does than getting yourself out of the box, look and find the Buddha that lies within you living the life you are supposed to live: full and complete in yourself.
