The words 'spiritual responsibility' have been vibrating within my consciousness for the past few days. We all know by now that all of our thoughts, energies, emotions, and actions effect the cosmic blueprint. We all know that we have to be the light in this world that we've all contracted to be. We all know that our being matters.
What does it mean for one to be spiritually responsible?
In meditation, the answer came very clearly and quite strongly.
To be spiritually responsible, one must look within. We are always searching for the answers outside of ourselves. We must find time to be in fellowship with ourselves.

Sometimes it isn't to learn some great lesson, but simply to test the grounds to see if we can hold onto our self. The answers are sometimes to confront and sometimes to simply let it go. We are always wanting others to hear us and often the deeper message is to hear our self. To have faith and trust our own inner wisdom.
To be spiritually responsible is to BE. To be in the present moment and trust what comes into our path. To have faith that our needs will be met and we may even discover some beauty and adventure in the NOW. To be content and grateful for all we have been given and all we will experience.We must cherish the simple joys and beauty of the natural world, being spiritually awake, rather than sleep walking through this magnificent experience.
