Working the Ground of God’s Life (Part 1)

The ground of discovery belongs to anyone who will work it.

No one owns this ground, or the land of its origin, yet we may each possess as much of it as we are willing to exchange our lives for. Everyone has the same right to these soils that everywhere hold the same deep richness. And any seeds planted within them grow equally for whosoever will stoop to plant them.

The great sun above this ground never stops shining, so that there is Light enough everywhere in all times for all creations to grow. These things I tell you are intended to convey this one truth:

This ground of discovery, the ground of God’s life, remains little more than earthly dirt for us unless we dive into it and get our hands “dirty.” Only then are we made clean. The confusions and doubts inherent in merely speculating about the spiritual life are washed away by honest spiritual sweat.

To succeed spiritually, to discover the new man or woman waiting within us, requires going beyond being the thought-based, self-conceived creatures we are at present. We must work on ourselves. Only honest self-work heals the unconscious divisions within us and between us… [to be continued]
