A Guide for Spiritual Living is my text for classes, seminars, workshops & retreats. It is the foundational material I use in classes at www.northbayrecovery.com and is now available on Amazon.com and dozens of other places online.
Foundations of this Guide
This Guide is not about religion. It’s about Spiritual Living which is being as healthy as possible every day in every way; i.e., in body, mind and spirit. Even if you are an agnostic, atheist, skeptic or unbeliever, you will find things to do embedded in these suggestions to improve your life and become healthier than you are today or, in some cases, healthier than you have ever been. Every person on earth is equally important. This is the highest principle directing all human relations. Every person on earth is on a spiritual journey.
Welcome, seven billionth person, whoever you are
Every one of us is on a spiritual journey
Even those who don’t know it
Admit it or even deny it
Those who choose the life
Of kidnapper, rapist, or torturer
Seem to not be on any spiritual path
But the psychopath is simply on a dark and dreary one
Gaining lessons through giving and receiving pain
There are other waysThe ways of light, lightness, laughter and service to others
Choose your path carefully
If this Guide were a course at a university, it would be a first-year class with a 101 designation. My purpose here is to point you in the direction you wish to go today. Each suggestion provides just enough information to get you started and will point in the direction where you can do more research, discovery and participation on your own.
While using this Guide, you have 100 percent editorial control over every aspect of the spiritual path you are about to create. And it remains flexible with exchangeable parts for your entire lifetime. The spiritual path you create today will simply be the foundation for the one—or ones—you create later.
Throughout this Guide, there are numerous opportunities to answer questions or make personal notes. Take advantage of every opportunity. The more you do so, the more valuable this Guide will become to you.
If you are involved in a faith-based community, as I have been all of my life, you will find this Guide helpful as you fine-tune, tweak, revise and update your spiritual path.
