If You Were to Commit One-Hundred Percent to Your Spiritual Goals, How would You Be Living Your Life Differently?

How committed are you to your spiritual goals?

If you want to commit one-hundred percent to your spiritual goals, it’s not easy and it’s definitely not conventional — or comfortable.  Put yourself in Saint Francis’ shoes when he shed every piece of his clothing in front of all of Assisi — including his parents and the Bishop — to renounce the world. Or when he kissed the leper on the mouth to eliminate the line between the divine and the profane.  Saint Francis threw convention out the door and took it all the way.  

I’m not suggesting that you kiss lepers or shed your clothes in public (please don’t).  Spiritual challenges are incessantly knocking at our door. Our mission is to become aware of these opportunities and welcome them as old friends. Don’t escape from them. Breathe. Learn their wisdom. Grow.

    "Are you ready and willing to spiritually go all the way?" Oh boy, that's a hard one. I want to give a resounding "YES!". A huge part of me yearns for grace to fully surrender (internally, not necessarily in action) but I know too well my how lazy my bones can be! That said, I pray for fire in my belly. Maybe your program will help me stay on track with what is, after all, the most important thing (since everything else I do flows from how aligned I am with the great mystery).

    How difficult it is to go all the way when we live in a world of peanut butter and jelly! I guess it's possible. St. Francis and Ghandi did it as well as St Teresa. But I am not a saint.
