I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear. Rosa Parks

The pictures in a cookbook may look delicious but they don’t satisfy the hunger. It doesn’t matter if there are five hundred easy-to-follow, step-by-step recipes, unless you actually follow them and cook, you starve. Likewise, you can read all the spiritual books from your local bookstore, quote the hippest philosophers of the day, and be enrolled in the best spiritual classes money can buy, but unless you apply the principles they won’t satisfy the hunger of your soul. Whether it’s a taste-bud-tantalizing picture or an inspirational spirit-rousing message, it doesn’t do you any good unless you do something with the information.

Sometimes it may take a few attempts to get what’s on your plate to look like the picture in the book. And it may take some practice to find the nirvana your teachers or facilitators are pointing to. But don’t quit in frustration before tasting the delights of your recipes for life. What good is it to have drawers full of spices you never use or shelves filled with books that have no relevance? To walk the talk and not just talk the talk, you have to be willing to make a bit of a mess in your exploration to make the potential become real for you.

Spiritual Contemplation: What spiritual principles would you like to take off the shelf and put into greater practice so as to demonstrate a more delicious expression of life?

Affirmation: I am able to manifest the pictures of my consciousness!
