55 – Gaining a Spiritual Understanding


I believe it is our birthright to be healthy, prosperous (successful) and growing spiritually – the wisdom passed down over the many centuries is “The Kingdom of Heaven is within you”. What this means is that we develop ourselves internally at the spiritual level and then this development gradually begins to make manifest in our external world. Hence, as we develop more inner peace, more joy and more love, we then exude this into our external world and so express our spiritual development. This process alone is a lifelong journey, one never actually arrives because perfection is not achievable. And when we develop this way internally, we also experience a betterment in our health and in our prosperity provided our mind is conditioned correctly to allow the attraction of such good things into our life.

In fact, my experience has been that as I develop myself and make myself a better person, I then attract people like me. So then the people around me on a daily consistent basis are a reflection of my spiritual development. Wow.. incredible isn’t it!

When you develop your spiritual nature such that you are more peaceful (less anger, less jealousy, and other vices), more joyful (less sadness, less depression) and more love (less hatred, less judgement of others) then people will naturally want to gravitate toward you in both your personal life and business/career life. This then creates more opportunities for a happier more prosperous life.

So it is at the foundational level of our lives that we should devote some time each day to developing our spiritual nature. That small investment of time (it could be 15 minutes of meditation per day coupled to some allocated time in personal reflection and prayer) in my experience yields great benefits both personally and professionally.

Developing one’s spiritual nature, together with developing one’s mind is integral to a successful more prosperous life. We need both spirit and mind to be developed in sync.

I encourage you to begin today to consider a strategy that is achievable and doable each day to enhance your development. I remember years ago a wise mentor once said to me  “You are a spiritual being having a human experience Stan”.

Remember the definition of success by Earl Nightingale, who was one of the very first teachers of personal development, he said, “Success is the progressive realisation of a worthy ideal. That worthy ideal is your spiritual nature being developed and being made useful in a vocation/business of your choosing”.

If you want to know more about this process, please feel free to contact me and I’d be happy to share, or come along to our Breakfast at the Next Level and ask me at the event. I am always happy to assist.

Until we next meet, I wish you prosperity, peace and a life of purpose.

Live with passion, always stay on your life purpose, and stay at peace.
