When you commit to walking a spiritual path, you commit to a life of continuous self-improvement, what the Japanese call Kaizen. Every step forward leads to another step, and another step beyond that. You must shove complacency to the side of the road and keep moving. The journey is unending.
Exhausting? No, exhilarating! The pleasure of self-discovery quickly becomes self-motivating. Each meditation beckons you to go deeper; each thought-provoking new book leads to another; each session of affirmations ends too soon.
As you expand the scope of your awareness, the scope of your non-awareness expands as well. You glimpse the vastness of how much there is to know and humbly realize how little of it you comprehend.
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.
If answers to crucial questions continue to elude you, do not despair. Rather, be excited that there is so much yet to learn!
Complacency is the enemy of study. We cannot really learn anything until we rid ourselves of complacency. Our attitude toward ourselves should be “to be insatiable in learning” and toward others “to be tireless in teaching.”
When you train yourself to look for God’s fingerprints on everything you see, the beauty and majesty of a falling leaf will take your breath away.
We look too much to museums. The sun coming up in the morning is enough.
Viewing every conversation, every decision, every incident as an occasion for insight and growth deepens your wisdom, expands your capacity to enjoy life, and inspires you to seize every opportunity to create, achieve, and become. When you view every moment as a gift, you become a gift to the world.
By God, don’t linger
in any spiritual benefit you have gained,
but yearn for more—like one suffering from illness
whose thirst for water is never quenched.
This Divine Court is the Plane of the Infinite.
Leave the seat of honor behind;
let the Way be your seat of honor.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.
Order it at GodIsLogical.com.
In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?
Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
Phil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed. The roster of storytellers includes Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Caroline Myss, Larry Dossey, Rachel Naomi Remen, Bernie Siegel, Dean Ornish, and Christiane Northrup. Sixty Seconds has been translated into four languages: Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Reading this book is like spending a few minutes face to face with each of the contributors and listening to their personal stories.
