The Spirit in the Ordinary

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

Ordinary tree, ordinary miracle! 

"Spirituality is not a formula; it is not a test. It is a relationship. Spirituality is not about competency; it is about intimacy. Spirituality is not about perfection; it is about connection. The way of the spiritual life begins where we are now in the mess of our lives." Mike Yaconelli

The ordinary life is the life of the spirit. Seeking some grand and awesome Reality apart from daily living is futile.

Spirit lives where you are, right now, this moment, this place.

The ordinary life is the Miracle. Rejoice. Be glad in it!

You Are Your Own Master!

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

Bloom where you are planted!

"You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul." Swami Vivekananda

Thousands of would-be gurus out there, all wanting a piece of your action. They want your soul, your spirit, and, yes, your money! Pay heed.

No single person, agenda, platform, or religion holds absolute truth. 
Each offers a glimpse, and you can take or leave from each whatever it is that resonates with your heart, or that serves you in some way.

And you are free to discard the rest.

You and you alone are the Master of your own destiny. Let no one convince you otherwise.

May joy be your companion and love be your guide.
