For a Christmas gift one of my God daughters bought me a t-shirt emblazoned with the words, “Feel the Force.”
Religion is about believing about the Force. Spirituality is having the courage to connect and FEEL the Force. Belief, for the most part is cerebrally driven. It derives from Western philosophy of the enlightenment when the French philosopher Rene Descartes declared, “I think therefore I am.”
Spirituality is where you recognize that “I am and aspect of I AM and sometimes I am thought through.” This is where you as the personal, “I am” are living in alignment with the universal “I AM.” The modern mystic Eckhart Tolle says it this way:-
No thought. Just Presence—Eckhart Tolle.
The spiritual master Jesus Christ says it this way:-
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?—Matthew 6:27
We receive spiritual guidance to the degree that you FEEL connected to Spirit.
How to receive spiritual guidance comes through soul alignment and not through your disconnection via the overthinking distracted personal mind.
