Sunday Spirit...

What are You Full Of?

Are you full of Spirit and light...are you full of joy and happiness...are you full of love and good cheer...or are you full of yourself???

Oh my Rebecca...where are you coming from today...self...self-centeredness...self-concern...selfhood...Yep...I am in the middle of a selfishness campaign...and I want you to come with me...of course!

Now it would be really selfish if I wanted you to go on MY journey...that's not the idea...I want you to go on YOUR journey...into YOUR self...

Self Realization is the culmination of all things spiritual. I love the following video in which Fr. Keating shares an illustration of stream of thought...and how we can go deeper into our soul...

Thoughts - Thomas Keating on the Method of Centering Prayer

Reaching the stage of Self Realization means...reaching True Self "which is our participation in the Divine Life" ...

I have listed all the self words and phrases I know or could dig up...

This is odd to me, as I'm asking the Holy Spirit to clarify for me all the stuff that is on my plate and to tell me which is for me and which is not. Interesting to see your list, though.
