The Council: Spirituality. Some of you express an interest in spirituality. Some of you say that you are on a quest for spirituality. Some of you say that you wish to be spiritual. But what is spirituality and how do we attain it? It is very simple. It must be simple, it must be very obvious. It must be staring us right back into our faces if we have an All-Loving and Forgiving God, an All-Loving and Forgiving Divine Presence, and since we do, then spirituality is before us. If we cannot see it, if we cannot understand it, if we cannot reach out and bring it into ourselves, it is because we choose to be blind to the love that this Infinite and Divine Presence has for us.
What is spirituality? It should be obvious and yet how very, very few see the obvious. Spirituality is but an attitude, an attitude towards oneself and an attitude towards life or to those around us. How do we attain spirituality? If spirituality is an attitude, then to attain it we simply bring that attitude into us, make it a part of our nature. Not something we talk about, but something that we do something about.
What is this great secret, this attitude, this mystifying miracle maker? It is as simple as this: Do nothing to someone else you would not want done to yourself. That means then you must be caring, you must be loving, you must be honest, you must be faithful, and you must be a responsible individual. That sums up spirituality, yet for as simple as it is, for as obvious as it is, those who choose not to see what lies before them are numbered in the frequency of raindrops hitting the face of the earth in any given storm. Infidelity to oneself translates to infidelity to all other aspects of that individual’s life.
