We can’t create transformational spiritual experiences by sheer will, but we can encourage them by being open to them.
~ Veronica Ray ~
How does one define a Spiritual experience? Perhaps the most we can say is that we know, oftentimes very subtly, that something wonderful has happened. We suddenly sense that we are safe, in good hands, and the pain or turmoil of our lives is passing.
Our spiritual guide or our Higher Power is always with us, always trying to help us, always acting as a protector and teacher. Unfortunately, many of us can’t quiet our minds enough to capture the essence of God’s presence in all our experiences, the mundane as well as the obviously significant. Making the Second Step of this program the foundation for daily living opens us to the myriad possibilities for the Spiritual Experiences we seek. “Coming to believe” is right next to “believing.” Believing is next to knowing.
My life is on a spiritual plane. God’s presence, thus my safety, is as close as my next thought today.
