An alternative title would have been “Spiritual seeker becomes spiritual practitioner”! I have read dozens of books, attended many workshops and a few amazing, life-changing metaphysics courses. In 2003-2005, I attended the three Master of Metaphysics Courses run by Margaret McElroy, nee Birkin, who channelled ascended master Maitreya.
Nothing’s by chance, there is no such thing as coincidence, it’s all serendipity, and I’ve been blessed with two wonderful kids (as I write aged 38 and 36 years old), who have done almost the very same, identical courses and study books as me, so we’re able to support and encourage each other in an absolutely fantastic way, even life-saving and definitely life-changing at some points in my life. My son was Margaret’s youngest and one of her first students, aged 21, back in 2002, although my daughter was younger when she did the Beginners Course with me in 2003, at 19.
Practising what we’ve learned from all the books we’ve read to-date, and the courses and workshops we’ve attended, rather than reading yet another spiritual or self-help book is vital. It’s also important to stop being a Spiritual Junkie and zone in on one spiritual path and/or spiritual teacher.
If you’re anything like me, you have many questions you want to find the answers to, and you love reading the many amazing self-help, spiritual and autobiographies to find the truth out for yourself – indeed, YOUR Truth.
“How can I be happier?” “How can I become enlightened?” And I’m sure you have a myriad of other questions! Do you think it’s time that you really zoned in and addressed your core truth, or do you want to continue procrastinating and messing about with being a nice, spiritual person for a few more years?
I’ve always been a very nice person, kind and loving, compassionate, etc, but, do you know, and it may surprise you … being all those things doesn’t make you enlightened! I remember being shocked when I realised this. All the time I’d been a people-pleaser, I wasn’t actually loving ME, and nor was I growing towards the enlightened state that I now find myself much closer to.
Taking a long hard look in the mirror, to use a well-known phrase, is what is seriously needed to find out what our beliefs are, whether we really like these beliefs, ie do they really relate to who you are, or were they things you’d been taught as you were a child and you’ve carried them with you all your life?
