Embracing Your Spiritual Awakening
A new season beckons … and it’s a wonderful time to think about awakening the Spirit within.
That is an essential part of our well-being, although we don’t always focus on it as we should. Especially today, when the world seems fraught with challenges that crowd our minds and threaten to steal our peace—but we needn’t let that happen. By purposely turning away from the challenges, we can see that a brand-new season offers renewed hope. And there is no better time to focus on our spiritual health.
After all, when we feel turmoil, it’s often a sign that our souls are aching. By looking inward, we can experience the kind of healing that truly replenishes us—the kind that comes only from our Creator. In the Bible, the prophet Elijah heard God speaking to him in the form of a “gentle whisper” (1 Kings 19:12). If we don’t make an effort to tune out life’s noise and listen for God’s voice, we could miss His quiet message to our hearts.
But when we do make an effort to listen for God’s quiet message, it can bring an amazing, incomparable sense of calm and renewed purpose.
Byron Katie experienced this sort of calm—but not until she reached the lowest point of her life. She was suffering from addictions and severe depression, and then, in a moment of striking clarity, Katie had what she calls her “spiritual epiphany.” Suddenly she knew that by letting go of the turmoil that had long consumed her, and focusing instead on positive, hopeful thoughts, she could change her life into one of joy, purpose, and love. That’s when she created “The Work,” a method of self-inquiry that helps people separate myth from truth and is based on four questions:
- 1. Is it true?
- 2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true?
- 3. How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought?
- 4. Who would you be without the thought?
From that day forward, Katie had a renewed purpose, and she dedicated her life to sharing her personal epiphany with others. She is convinced beyond any doubt that if she hadn’t confronted her own desperation, she would never have experienced the spiritual awakening that has transformed so many lives.
We want you to experience your own spiritual awakening and be ready to face the new season with a renewed sense of purpose, hope, and joy.
