    1. Great comment! I don’t think the connection is actually broken. But I do know that I tend to forget, ignore or even pretend it isn’t there and oh my yes I do get in trouble — big time. So what do you personally do to reconnect or tune back in?

      1. For me reconnecting with the Spirit involves turning from that which “breaks” or “blinds” me to the connection and even to the Spirit and towards the things of the Spirit. There is an old-fashioned word for that which I really like. It’s repentance. In real time this always involves prayer and meditation on the Scripture and then necessary actions like forgiving or asking for forgiveness and making amends.

      2. I try to take a couple of deep breaths, go within and become consciously aware of Spirit. Unless I’m driving in crazy traffic — then I say the prayer for protection which ends in the words “wherever I am God is.” 🙂 Being consciously connected to Spirit is so absolutely glorious I can’t imagine how I could ever go outside that presence. That’s why words like today’s quote are important reminders for me.

      3. I agree. Although i will say there have been times in my life where my emotional state has tempted me to disconnect from Spirit in order to pursue things I viewed were momentarily more important.

      4. And there are always things “out there” trying to draw us away. Every time I follow one of them and then recenter I wonder how I could ever do that — how I could ever want anything more than God. But then… someone will tick me off and I will fail to see that they too are created in the image and likeness of God and I start thinking that God is not present in that person or moment. Or I start worrying about where the money will come from to repair the roof or pay the doctors and I feel all alone. That is how I believe we create our own “Hell” or feeling of separation from God and it is not a nice place to be. I’ve spent more than my share of time there.

        This is one of those things I still find myself struggling with. I think the condition of our world shows that it is something we all struggle with. Now if we could only find our way home and live there. 🙂

        I am really enjoying this conversation. I’ve always wanted more interaction with and between our followers. We just started The Espirational Community Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/393970474733814/) where we hope we can encourage more of this type of discussion, but it is always welcome here on the blog as well.

      5. I just joined the Facebook page. I am trying to really be more intentional with networking this year. Keeping up to date is not an easy task but I am making the conscious effort because I feel this is something the Spirit really intends for me this year.
        This particular conversation parallels a conversation I am having with friends over Galatians chapter 5 and the nature of walking in the Spirit and how different that looks from the way most choose to live their lives. A comparison of modern life trends to Galatians 5:19-22 reveals that as a culture we choose Galatians 5:19-21 far more than we choose Galatians 5:22. That said, as people of the Spirit we are called to live Galatians 5:22. We were talking just last night about how radical living the Galatians 5:22 lifestyle would make us look in our interactions with most people.
        Let’s take a simple and small example. How would applying Galatians 5:22 change our political discourse?

      6. Or if we applied the Sermon on the Mount or tried to live the Christ life instead of saying we can’t because Jesus is God. It wouldn’t just change our political discourse — it would change the world. A big stumbling block I see right now in terms of politics is that we all feel persecuted and think we are in a battle. Some pastors are even telling their congregants to buy guns. And all we really have to do is live in the love of God and shine our light out in the world. But most people see that as foolish or at least naive and no one wants to go first. And we all know how the good, kind and gentle folk are taken advantage of in this world. The Gospel is really very simple, but we have to complicate it with all our doctrines and totally miss the point.

      7. I would agree. I would also say one of the largest problems with the church faces is that we have forsaken an eternal mindset for temporal one. We fight and strive to win here on Earth thinking that this current age is the point, all the time forgetting there is a vast eternity which lies before us which works by entirely different rules than the rules of our current world.
