Today’s lesson encourages you to have your own direct experience of truth. It says, “Be not deceived by voices of the dead, which tell you they have found the source of life and offer it to you for your belief.”
One primary obstacle to true spirituality is belief. If you look at members of traditional religion, you will see that their “faith” is based on believing what they have been taught. That happens in our spirituality too. People believe what they’ve read or what teachers say.
True spirituality isn’t about belief. It is about your own direct experience.
Our “faith” isn’t based on belief. Our “faith” is based on trust. We trust the teachings enough to try it for ourself. Instead of believing the teachings, we practice them, and through practice we experience truth directly.
Keep this in mind as you go forward with spirituality. There will be a lot of opportunities to believe something. Believing isn’t the point. Practice is the point.
