I greet The Indwelling Presence.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience, not humans having a Spiritual Being. We are infinite beings having a finite experience. This clears up a number of questions for me. This takes on the idea of life after this life a reality for me. To express our Father’s Will and Love in this physical world is an attainable goal. The whole meaning of life in this world takes on a much difference meaning. I know we did not create ourselves. I know we cannot transform water or food into flesh and bone, thoughts and feeling along and unaided. That takes and infinite intelligence way beyond our human pay-grade. When I am using prayer and meditation to get stuff I am consuming spiritual junk-food. When I am seeking approval from other humans, instead of the infinite Source in Whom we live, move and have our being, I am headed for a dead end. Love, forgiveness, compassion is far more appealing. A.A. gives us a great set of spiritual tools, with which we can truly make a good difference. We are assured that we can start over again with less baggage and prejudice. Everything my Hero Jesus showed us how to do is a worthwhile investment. Those of us in A.A. who practice its spiritual principles, although we may call the program different names, we know it works. “It really does.” Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
