The Spiritual Life Made Simple

Posted by on Feb 15, 2014 in Pope Michael, Sanctification | 0 comments

As We were going through some notes We had made from meditation, We came across a single sided piece of paper. And so how do we simplify the spiritual life? Let us remember that God is simplicity itself. We are the ones that complicate things. If we simplify our own lives, then we come closer to where God wants us to be.

 Love God completely and do everything He asks us to do.

 Spiritual books merely expand on these two points and help us accomplish them.

When we love someone, we want to spend time with them. If I tell you that I love you, then find every excuse to avoid you and spend no time with you, you are not going to believe that I truly love you. My actions speak louder and drowned out my words. So let us remember that actions speak louder than words.

And so how do we show that we love God? We spend time with Him. This is why We strongly recommend an hour a day in prayer. Those of us who are pursuing a spiritual life and truly wish to love God should be able to find an hour each day to spend with Him in prayer.

There are two kinds of prayer, vocal and mental. Mental prayer is the most important for we must keep our mind on God during our vocal prayer as well. To merely rattle off a series of words is not prayer. Prayer must come from the heart.

“Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 7:21)

The second point is to do everything God asks us to do. If you are waiting for a burning bush, then you are not seriously seeking God’s will. He does not usually come in such an extraordinary manner. Rather He speaks to us in dozens of ways throughout the day. God is speaking to you right now through this little sermon, which you are reading.

And so God speaks to us through spiritual reading. We have seen that in Our own lives many times. Sometimes dramatically. We would be reading something and realize, that this is what God wants us to do. Our job is simple, do it. So a part of our hour should be spent in meditative spiritual reading. This is where we take a spiritual book and slowly digest and apply it to our lives.

God speaks to us through spoken sermons, which today many will find on the internet. And yes, He can speak to us through a webpage. He uses many ways to communicate His will to us, if only we will listen for His voice and heed it.

 A Question

 Since we are working together to save souls, We shall sometimes ask you questions to help us present the truths of the Faith to the faithful. And so We have a question for you. How best do we explain Pope Michael to people? True, Our project seeks to explain the current situation in the Church and ultimately Pope Michael. However, We don’t believe it is so difficult that people need to read a book. Actually We believe it can be presented simply. Any suggestions?
