Is God-Consciousness Attainable?

When people gather together for spiritual growth, they make an agreement, silent or spoken, to become co-creators. To accomplish this, activity takes place at different levels: New beliefs are expressed and accepted. The mind accepts certain facts and rejects others. A feeling of shared responsibility arises. A new vocabulary is invented and adopted. Bonding occurs at the emotional level. At the subtle level, spirits align.

This whole complex of activity isnít confined to spiritual movements. You have the same capacity to be a co-creator. All you need is a core belief: God-consciousness is attainable. When this belief is set in place, a group gathered together to achieve it can begin to build a new reality. The spiritual power needed to reach God-consciousness will be increased many times over.

Exercise
Find others who share your aim to reach God-consciousness and gather together. I know this sounds daunting; it goes far beyond anything one could call an exercise. To commune with others involves commitment and a willingness to expose your deepest aspirations.

It requires stepping out of conformity with society and finding souls you can align with, even if you have no other social ties. To gather together on the path isnít the same as forming a sect. There is no need for dogma, prayer, ritual, priests, or official scripture. No one is to be elevated above the rest.

If the word spiritual connotes any or all of these negatives, you are conflating religious doctrine with spiritual growth. The two arenít the same, and we have an undeniable need to gather together for spiritual purposes.

I enjoy gathering in a group for spiritual purposes - but find that since I've moved to a smaller community there is no such regular group now.

Where two or more of you are gathered in His Name,
there is LOVE.

My belief and my faith are between myself and God. What I believe and feel I dont need to speak about to other people unless they ask. I hope to reach others by the way I act and behave which I feel is how God would want me to act and behave.
