In case you haven't figured it out, the last few weeks (and this
episode also) have been a lead-in to one of the most spiritually
powerful times in the cycle of the year: Samhain. Not that
the rest of the year can't be spiritually powerful, but what
sparkles or shines the rest of the year can really sizzle and shine
Last week, we spoke about confronting The Divine, the week before we spoke about confronting your priesthood, and the week prior to that we spoke of confronting tradition. And this week, we'll look at the three-word phrase which pretty much sums it up. Yes, there is more to it. Yes, there are some other considerations if you really want success. But it all hangs on three words.
Personal responsibility is there, too. In fact, what we explore in this episode just might be the ultimate expression of personal responsibility we can deal with. After all, if we're talking about your spiritual life, then by definition we have to be speaking of your personal responsibility for it. After all, it is yours. And so, you need to be in charge of it. Suggestions, advice, teaching and learning are all good and worthwhile, but that does not mean you need to be led around by the nose.
Given that, there's much that can be done. You might surprise yourself. And the most powerful point of all reveals the sheer power of all of this in just three words.
