Developing Your Spirituality

So, how does one develop one’s own best personal spirituality.

  1. Become conscious of your current spirituality/ies
  2. Evaluate their effectiveness
  3. Decide if a change is necessary
  4. If necessary, re-orient yourself

Becoming Conscious

What do you ‘worship’ now? Where is your heart? Your core? Your emphasis?

The following questions are helpful.

  1. What do you spend most of your time doing?
  2. What do you spend most of your money on?
  3. In what places are you most often to be found?
  4. What type of people do you surround yourself with most often?
  5. What are your visions, dreams, and goals about?
  6. Who are your heroes?
  7. What are your biggest regrets?

As you begin to answer these questions for yourself, you can see where you’re spending your time, energy, and money.

This is not to say that a particular answer is wrong or bad. The question you simply need to ask yourself is, “Is the investment bringing you the rewards you expect and desire?”

If not, what is missing? Where do you still feel empty? Or unfulfilled?

Is your spirituality sufficient for who you are?

If not, consider an upgrade.

Debunking A Course in Miracles (ACIM) and Spiritual Scams

A cursory inspection of what we know reveals that A Course in Miracles is a spiritual scam.

I just name it especially because it is quite “big” and popular and am not going to take time into going into all of the reasons it is nonsense, but am just listing it as one of the examples of some of the types of spiritual scams that exist.

So, ACIM was written by a ‘spirit’ claiming to be Jesus. As ‘channeled’ by Helen.

So, one has to believe in Jesus to believe in ACIM. Otherwise, the “spirit” is lying and shouldn’t be believed. Correct?

But, if you do believe in Jesus, you kinda also have to believe in the New Testament in some fashion.

And, Jesus is recorded to have said: “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets…they shall deceive the very elect.

Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

So, if you are going to literally believe those words, Jesus said not to believe in anyone claiming to BE him or speak for him.

And yet that is what ACIM is.

Which means you can’t believe both literally in the words to have been reported by the New Testament figure known as Jesus saying not to believe anyone claiming to be him AND ACIM (which requires believing in Jesus, according to the ‘channeler’).

ACIM contradicts its own existence, in other words.

Did Jesus really dictate A Course in Miracles to Helen?
