Stayed on Spirit (07/25/21)

Rev. Mary Murray Shelton

What happens to a mind that focuses again and again on a single goal? Power builds up within the body, mind and spirit of that person with a kind of single-minded devotion and determination that can create miracles. Think Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. Think about Olympic athletes, inventors, artists and scientists. This about saints.

These people aren’t exceptions. They made themselves exceptional by following the pull of Spirit toward what wanted to come into being through them. In the process, they were transformed themselves until they became embodiments of their aim, no matter what its outward intention was.

We were born to see Spirit everywhere–to know that we’re immersed in it and to keep bringing our awareness back to this goodness again and again. Let’s explore how that might work in everyday life today.
