Authentic Spirituality

01 February 2020

Authentic Spirituality is always in some way found in letting go. Sadly In a consumeristic society, we have little training in how to let go of anything. Our lives so easily become about getting and if we are honest we resist the concept of loss passionately.  Our world promotes the concept that more makes us secure and if we fall for that we could miss a secret to the Kingdom that is costly. John the Baptist knew this secret he states :“He must become greater; I must become less.” John 3v30. John knew that making room for God requires a diligent and consistent orientation to reduction. In the Kingdom less is more and empty is a space for us to receive. The mystery that God seems to be drawn to emptiness is remarkable.
