Devotion to God is the most influential aid to success in meditation practice and to spiritual growth. Without devotion, one is inclined to be self-serving, or sincerely engaged in helpful practices from a self-conscious level of awareness which is limited because of its conditioned state. Some benefits will be experienced even at this level of endeavor, but for superior results and rapid spiritual growth, devotion which inspires the heart and enlivens faith is vital.
Devotion, plus knowledge of meditation techniques—and their faithful application—will result in Self-realization and full illumination of consciousness. Your ultimate aim in this incarnation is to be fully awake to the wholeness of life.
Speak this positive affirmation:
With an open heart and open mind I remain in the awareness that all I do serves God.
Have a good day . . . and a great life!
