Embodied Beings

Spent the day doing something for myself – attended a class at Wisdom Ways on the Neuroscience of Spiritual Practice.

My brain is overloaded.  I have pages of notes to review, various points to “google”, more books to get, and a few blogs to read.

More of what was offered I will share later, but the most important take-away?

God surely did something amazing in creating humans.

We are complex, amazing, creatures that have a CHOICE!  Our bodies allow for change and growth and a deeper connection with God.

God created us not only with “hearts” to search for Him, but with bodies – blood and neurons and muscles – that do not need to be stuck in doubt, despair and fear.

We can choose love, we can choose to follow God, and we can become even stronger embodied souls praising and honoring God!

Jesus taught us to pray…and pray we should, for through prayer and spiritual practice, we will find ourselves becoming who God created us to be.

Lord, help me pray.  Lord, help me turn to you with intention and dedication.  Amen.
