This is a Soul Awareness Teaching (SAT) by John-Roger.
This is a seminar in which John-Roger explores a life of full commitment to God. “I define this commitment as one of having no other alternatives available to you,” he says. J-R relates his own
experience with this, “No matter what happens I’ve got to be able to get to God. I’ve got to be able to do that. That’s not a statement that is a commitment. There are no other alternatives left in my life.” When in your life have you felt that deeply committed to something?
J-R goes on, “I think that if we really get commitment — like it is in the bone marrow in your life and you move on it — you’re going start being like Peter who walked by and cast a shadow on a person and the person was healed by the shadow.” That’s the implication of the kind of commitment J-R is addressing.
As part of the commitment process and also as a pathway to commitment, J-R talks about spiritual exercises as they are taught in MSIA. He encourages each of us to find our own way of doing SE’s. “When it comes to spiritual exercises,” he says, “there is no way I’m going to say, ‘come sit at my feet and I will show you how to do it.’ Spiritual exercises are not just a form or a motion or a tradition but it’s your whole state of being.”
God Bless You!
