You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul. Swami Vivekananda Enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness where we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention. Deepak Chopra The task of the waiting period is to see if we can practice what we preach. The hope of the universe is that we learn to see that even when our actions, our words, even, yes, our thoughts are not “spiritual” or “positive”, we can still see the wonders of our dream unfold. In our heads, in our physcial reality, we can do all the right protocol, the right actions, keep up the mantra in our head, yet still we wait. No one likes to wait. Most often even though the prophets, the seers try to show the spiritual side of the waiting, the people only want the results. Remember in the movie “Karate Kid” master wants him to wash the car! WHAT!! Sometimes on our spiritual path we are told to wash the car in slow slow circular motions, where we seem to go back to square one. Remember we learn by repetition. We teach our children the alphabet by singing the same song over, over again, thus spirit teaches us to be in the habit of positive thinking by requiring us to determine to be positive. We can miss sometimes by the negativity of the world creeping over our thoughts, much like the fog creeps over the lake to rise toward the sun, Father Sol. Yet, we grow from the inside, to change the reality of the outside around us.
