“He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.”
~ Raymond Hull
Thank you for sharing this quote. It reminded me not to look outside to the material world to find justification for myself and what I am called to do. It is not about receiving external ques as to what is right and good. This quote reminded me that it is not about a search for things to change or improve but a joyful striving to recognize and acknowledge all that God has gifted to each of us in our perfectly crafted individuality.
So well said Elizabeth……Thank you
Thanks Evan. A good reminder to lead a good spiritual life.
Our spiritual self, which is our true self, always needs to be safeguarded. It should never come in the snare of mortal mind suggestions. Its very easy to fall prey to mortal mind suggestions which take us away from our true spiritual identity, created in the likeness of God, our maker.
We need to pray, watch and work to keep our consciousness pure, and on a spiritual level. The way that leads to God is not easy. It is straight and narrow..It requires of us to be vigilant, firm, righteous and good all the way. No compromise, no concessions allowed.
We should never bend to the human will and weakness which suggests we are unwell, or its okay to be revengeful at times, or gossip, or break a moral law. Being watchful and prayerful is very essential to keep on the right track. Moreover, we gain all of Gods support, goodness and bountiful blessings if we are spiritually attuned. “If living in disobedience to Him, we aught to feel no security although God is good.” Mary Baker Eddy in her text book, Science and Health.
Thanks, Evan, Raymond Hull, Elizabeth, and Nergish! I love your line, Elizabeth….”recognize and acknowledge all that God has gifted to each of us in our perfectly crafted individuality.” Perfectly crafted individuality. Sounds like a perfect title for an article for the periodicals!
I already am
what I am,
I don’t know
what that is.
As God reveals
what that is,
I know what I am,
thru a world
that does not
know what it is
Good idea with great posts. Thanks to all.
A good reminder thank you
