"Steadfast, serene, immovable, the same, year after year, through all the silent night
burns on forevermore that quenchless flame, shines on that inextinguishable light!"
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Take your life exactly as it is in this moment. It is a fallacy to think that you’re going to get closer to God by changing the form of your life, by leaving your partner or changing your job, or moving or whatever…. by giving up your material possessions or growing your hair, or cutting off your hair, or growing a beard….It is not the form, it is the nature of the being that fulfills the form. If you’re a lawyer you can continue being a lawyer. Just use being a lawyer as a way of coming to God. One form is not necessarily more spiritual than another. In working on the nature of your being, quieting the mind and opening the heart are essential to developing a spiritual consciousness.
