All of you: On a spiritual journey

“My advice to you is not to undertake the spiritual path. It is too difficult, too long, and is too demanding. I suggest you ask for your money back, and go home. This is not a picnic. It is really going to ask everything of you. So, it is best not to begin. However, if you do begin, it is best to finish.”

–Chogyam Trungpa

Someone said this to me, in different words. I was on a spiritual journey, looking for God, looking for angels, seeking peace. At the time, I was not yet a christian, but I believed there was SOMETHING MORE. And I was talking with a spiritual man via email, and he told me he thought I have good intuition, but that I shouldn’t pursue spirituality, that I shouldn’t pursue being a shaman (at the time I wanted to become a shaman and guide spirits back to God) , that I should go home and find something normal to learn about. Now I know that shamans are involved in demonic realms, that spirits are demons and that people do not become spirits after they die; they are given a new body after they die and are carried to heaven or hell and then heaven.

This quote is saying, being on a spiritual journey is not a picnic, GO HOME and forget about all things spiritual. I will tell you the opposite. A spiritual journey is a picnic, with good fruit harvested by Jesus. He plants the seeds in us, and the fruit grows and the flowers blossom. Jesus wants to sit with us and have a picnic. However, what the quote IS right about is that it will ask everything of you. God wants all of you, your whole heart, not just part of you. He died for you, so you should – could – live for Him. It is an adventure, a journey, and sometimes it will be hard to avoid sin, and sometimes the devil will try to tempt you and try to oppress you, but in spiritual warfare, God always win. You should go home. Heaven is home, you are just passing through earth, a traveler, waiting for your eternal journey to begin. Being Christian, the journey that being Christian is, will take all of you, and certainly, remember to tithe when you can, and pray and meditate and believe, and read your bible, and pray for the gift of discernment so you can learn to recognize Yahweh’s voice and learn to recognize Jesus’s voice.

It is time for you to consciously start your spiritual journey. Don’t take anything with you; leave the house with just your sandals. Fill your mind with Jesus. You are now on your way home. All of you will be happy, all of you will be at peace. Remember to finish your journey, or, maybe not. The journey never ends, but try not to get off the path of righteousness, try to stay in your walk with God, forever. It might seem hard, but you can do it. All of you is on a spiritual journey, a christian journey, and the journey never ends. Everyone should, and everyone has to, go on this journey. Start it before it ends up being too late, I don’t know if you can really get out of hell but I certainly hope you can.


If I can’t train gymnastics, I’ll watch gymnastics. It will help me to become a better gymnast. I will visualize myself doing back handsprings, back walkovers, and back tucks. I have a gymnastics class on Saturday, I can’t wait. I want to be good at gymnastics. I know I will do gymnastics in heaven. Tomorrow I will lift weights, it will help me to improve my gymnastics. The stronger I am, the easier gymnastics will be. I will leave for the gym at 3. I hate walking to the gym, but I love being there, so I’ll walk to the gym.

I have anxiety about it, too, because I want to be good at it. I love it.
