Life is a School
Would you agree that there is more to life than just the physical body? If you agree then there is an unseen, spiritual side to life, unexplained by science but known to mystics, poets, and artists, and every sincere soul. Reflections of the Life of the Spirit is a window into this hidden yet powerful side of life.
Would you agree that there is meaning to life above and beyond material pursuits? If you disagree then we really are no better than the animals, worse in fact. If you agree then we have an opportunity and obligation to seek out that purpose and try our best to fulfill that purpose. That opportunity is life and that obligation is to serve humanity.
Every minute of our life is an opportunity to draw nearer to that unseen spiritual essence we call God. It’s an obligation because we are duty bound to help each other and we dam ourselves if we don’t. Reflections on the Life of the Spirit is a door leading to our path of growth and service in life.
But learning doesn't have to take a lifetime!
Life experience is valuable but slow and hard to come by. It may take decades to learn that the simple things in life are the most valuable. It may take tremendous heart-break to learn that family is a treasure that never empties and is never lost. It may take a lifetime to realize that integrity, faith, and service are the true measures of a life well spent. There are ways, however, to speed up the process, to make it more understandable, and easier to learn. Reflections on the Life of the Spirit is one of those ways.
Our focus here is not on religion but helping you and your family to grow and develop, and to promote cooperation, respect, and service in the community. This is best done by cultivating a virtuous life and developing insights, knowledge and skills that will help us achieve our true needs, goals, and desires in life. In this way we will develop the spiritual qualities needed to succeed in this life and in the next.
Life on earth is a school where we learn what we need in order to thrive in this life and in the life after the death of our physical body. The skills we need to learn empower our community to thrive in meaningful, justice, and sustainable ways. Thus, we must work in this world for the betterment of our ourselves, our family, and our community. In so doing we learn about life in the next world and do what must be done here to enjoy the wondrous spiritual benefits in available the next world.
Reflections on the Life of the Spirit lays out for us in simple and clear language what we must do in order to lead a fruitful life and it explains why. This course gives us the tools to help us achieve our true needs, goals, and desires in life.
