Veganism and animal rights were my focus up until about 3 months ago when through a series of what I can only call miraculous events, I was inspired to really deepen my relationship with Jesus. This came after I experienced a dark night of the soul which left me crying out to Jesus to help me make Him my priority. My prayer was answered.
Now I am hosting spiritual practice sessions on Facebook live three times a day, and a handful of people join me. Telling people that I do this, and having them count on me, has motivated me to be much more regular in my spiritual practice. In fact, I have failed miserably over my adult life to ever get a regular spiritual practice going. When I did do it, like when I meditated in Self Realization style, the time always went very slowly, and I was bored stiff!
I have learned some spiritual practices that help bring joy, energy AND connection with Jesus. Time flies by, with my longest session being 1 hour and 45 minutes. I seriously had no idea the time had gone by!
Here is a post that has the resources that I often use, and even if you are not on Facebook, perhaps you will be enriched, and start doing regular spiritual practices on your own or with your family and friends.
One person joins me just about every evening, at 9PM CST and another joins me regularly at 1PM CST. Mornings are still a time when I might be alone–7:30AM CST, but often I often have someone join me.
This is a huge improvement over me feeling so isolated, without Jesus Vegans being the community I envision. Now, when the people do come to join Cliff, Robert, and I, I will have a spiritual practice that is regular and solid, and I imagine that they will be helped immensely, as will the whole community.
