The Power of Dedication in Your Spiritual Journey
What does it take to really change? To grow not just on the outside, but on the inside? If you’re on a spiritual path, you might find that the answer is simpler than you think, yet not always easy to stick to: dedication.
Bentinho emphasizes the importance of consistency. In his self-realization school in Sedona, both physical and online, he’s creating a space for consistent practice. The idea? By showing up regularly, with focused guidance and clear teachings, we avoid confusion and move toward true freedom.
It’s like that quote by Lou Holtz: “Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period.” Dedication is the secret ingredient to deepening any practice, spiritual or otherwise.
The Bible touches on this commitment in Colossians 3:23-24, where it says, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” This isn’t just about work; it’s about living life with purpose and heart, dedicating our actions to something higher than ourselves.
Bentinho suggests that our true life is invisible, hidden beneath layers of beliefs and patterns. By dedicating ourselves to consistent practice and guidance, we can peel away these layers to discover who we really are, beyond the noise and hustle of everyday life.
But let’s be real, dedication can be hard. It’s about showing up even when we don’t feel like it. It’s about listening, being open, and allowing ourselves to be immersed in an environment that supports our growth. It means being willing to let go of beliefs that don’t serve us anymore, like the mistaken notion that our life’s worth is measured by its external significance.
And if you’re worried that dedication means sacrificing joy or fun, think again. True dedication to your spiritual practice can be liberating, exciting, and deeply fulfilling. It’s not about what you give up but about what you gain: clarity, peace, and a sense of true empowerment.
So, are you ready to dive in and commit? Give it a few weeks of genuine, heartfelt practice, and watch as your life begins to change, from the inside out. It won’t necessarily be easy, but the transformation you’ll experience will be worth every step.
Remember, “The less significant your life is, the better you feel,” as Bentinho puts it. It’s a paradox of spirituality – as we let go of significance, we gain freedom.
If this resonates with you, give dedication a shot in your spiritual practice. You might just find it’s exactly what you’ve been missing.:
