When life happens to you, do you feel alone? If the answer is yes, it may be time to find a spiritual community to feel a part of. It could be a church or a twelve step group. There is a strength and support that comes from being a part of a group with spiritually like minded people that can do for you what nothing else can.
We know in Truth that we are never alone – God is always present whether we feel that Presence or not. But sometimes when life comes at you like a storm, it helps to have support that you can see, hear, and touch. Just as the mighty Redwoods intertwine with each other to be supported by the entire forest, we need the Love and support of a spiritual community to become all that we can be in both the good times as well as the not so good times.
God is everywhere present, which means that God is also within every person. As a result, we often hear the voice of Spirit through what other people say, we feel embraced by the love of God within a warm hug, and we feel God’s peace when we enter a spiritual place filled with the light and energy of others on the spiritual path.
IF you do not have such a place, find one. By ourselves we may be able to do 60% but it takes a spiritual community for us to be able to do 100%. Even if you know that you are never alone, it is vital that we be supported by a spiritual community to be all that we can be by overcoming obstacles that we could not by ourselves alone.
