An offering from Lee: Going Within

“If you don’t go within, you go without.” by Neale Donald Walsch

I like this quote. I don’t think we encourage internal growth, especially Spiritual growth enough. It seems like a second or third thought –if we think about it all!  To me “going within” means paying attention to where God is in my life and where else I can invite God to be part of my life.  It just doesn’t make sense to me that so few see their God relationship as important. In a world where what we look like gets an enormous about of attention, time and money; it seems strange we care so little about what we “look like” to God.  I mean shouldn’t we want to be healthy in our relationship with God as much as we want to look and feel healthy?  It seems so logical to me, but I just don’t think most people see it that way.  My spiritual life adds so much to my life as a whole. It makes me more fully who I was created to be. I need it. I depend on it. The base or foundation of my well being is connected directly to that relationship.  If I didn’t “go within” to be with God I would be going without a foundational part of who I am.  What about you?  How does that strike you?
