Would you like to do something worthwhile today? Then ask yourself, “What am I doing that is spiritual?”
Whatever you accomplish spiritually will stick with you forever. It will create a growing sense of purpose and worth, bless you and those whom you interact with, and create a better life experience.
For instance, one might say that there are two ways to play a piece of music on the piano. With inspiration, or without.
If a pianist plays the notes correctly, but with no inspiration, the music lacks positive impact. It may even hurt to listen to it. But if played with inspiration, the melody lifts thought to the heights of Spirit and inspires joy and delight.
The same rule applies to how we conduct our daily activities. If we just “play the notes,” or get through our day, without inspiration, our work can be tedious and even feel burdensome. But if we “play our music,” or act with love and delight in our heart, with inspiration, the outcome can be inspiring and delightful for ourselves and all around.
The key is to be motivated by spiritual purpose rather than blind obedience to mindless routine.
Find answers to questions such as, “How can I help others feel the touch of God in everything I do? How can I express more gratitude? How can I express more love, wisdom, and good cheer?”
What you succeed in expressing spiritually will lift your heart, inspire your outlook, and make you feel good about yourself. Why? Because it was the most worthwhile thing you did all day.
