Spirituality - Thoughts Versus Actions
The Council: "Those of you who quest for spirituality must understand what real spirituality is. It is not the act of kindness or loving or caring. It is the thought that instigates the act. If one can train his thoughts, if one can control his thoughts along the line of what is good, what is kind, what is loving, the natural outcome will be an action. Look into yourselves, and examine just how much love is there, how much kindness, how much caring. If there is even just the thought of possibly becoming serious about spirituality, then you have all that is necessary for success. All you must do is cultivate it. All you must do is begin to think about kindness, about compassion, about caring. In time, those thoughts will become actions."
Do not misunderstand when we say thought is important. One cannot just think spiritual thoughts or thoughts of loving, or kindness. One must allow those thoughts to manifest in an action. If the thoughts are sincere, if they truly are from your heart, then they will become action, they will become a doing. Those who only think thoughts of spirituality must question their own sincerity. Are they more interested in the search or in the discovery? There are many who want the search but not the discovery. The search poses no responsibility. The discovery engulfs one in responsibility, in commitment, in the doing. Allow the thoughts and nurture them, and perfection or spirituality is yours."
