“Religion inspires man to live courageously and joyfully on the face of the earth; it joins patience with passion, insight to zeal, sympathy with power, and ideals with energy.” [UB, 99:7.3]
Thought Adjuster: “This heartwarming depiction of what a profound religious experience is all about presents its shining attributes as if displayed in a show case—paired to perfection.
If you pay close attention to the opening quote, the initial sublime byproducts of authentic religious living are threefold: inspiration, courage, and joy. If your religious experience is flat-lining, you, most assuredly, do not possess the real thing. Any well-led spiritual quest will augment your capacity to pick up on the subtle nudges of Spirit, Its suggestions, and timely disclosures of soul-growth stimulating insights on a one-to-One, need-to-know, and need-to-grow basis.
The Father metes out bounties of spiritual nutrients to be perfectly blended as catalysts for beautifully-balanced, productive lives: patience with passion; insights with zeal; sympathy with power; ideals with energy.
Their combinations are catchy but never flashy. Patience tones down the impulsive nature of passion; insights prevent blind fanatism and compassion is a safeguard against free-will infringements; last but not least, energy is the vital force that enables you to go after worthwhile ideals.
How many of these spiritual gems in the raw have you collected so far? They are not free hand-outs. As an apprentice gemologist, your task is to refine them and co-creatively integrate them into your auric field to bring out your stunning inner beauty.”
