NOTE FROM MASTIN: We just installed our commenting system and it’s ready to go! So get ready to post comments below!
I’ll admit it: I’m a Game of Thrones junkie. And I can’t wait for it to come back in just a couple weeks.
I’ve recently enjoyed watching television again. I didn’t own a TV for about a decade – until a couple of months ago when we got Apple TV and it all went down hill from there.
I’ve really enjoyed watching Billions, Scandal, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Shark Tank and even Fixer Upper. TV has changed in the last decade – these new episodic writing styles have created a long movie over many seasons are pure genius.
And while I’ve enjoyed watching some of these brilliant shows, there’s something I’m reminded of.
It’s the idea of Spiritual Entertainment.
Where we read the books, the blogs, and watch the shows – and can feel that we have made progress but actually we haven’t.
Right now, after watching Billions I feel like I am a multi-billionaire investor who is being pursued by the US Government.
The entertainment is amazing, but it’s not real. At the end of the day, it’s watching someone else’s story.
I know that the same can be true in the spiritual world. You can read a book and have a temporary “aha moment.” But what counts are the actions we take afterwards. Too often the “aha moment” isn’t backed up with courageous action.
It’s noted, jotted down in a journal, and forgotten. And then the next book is picked up, read, aha’d and forgotten. And we can build up quite the vocabulary of spiritual terms, think we are making progress because we have aha moments – but when we look at our lives – not much else has changed. Why? Because books and blogs don’t take action for us.
At the end of the day, it is you and me who must act. Who must learn. Who must grow. Who must apply the spiritual knowledge.
Knowledge without action is worthless.
So, I have a very basic, simple question for you:
“What spiritual knowledge do you already know that you aren’t using?”
What if you didn’t need another book or blog, what if what you needed was to act?
One courageous action is worth a thousand of the wisest books. A lifetime of courageous action is one for the history books
The thing is, you already know what you need to do.
So, in the comments below – let me know: have you been doing too much spiritual entertainment and not enough action taking? What’s one action that you can take today to start the process of getting unstuck?
Have a great weekend and remember to take action & make it real!
Lots of LOVE,
