Spiritual laws

Spirituality does not depend upon the environment; it depends upon the attitude of the man towards life. The christian life is a life doing God's will under the guidance of Holy Spirit. God had a plan."If You abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish and it shall be done." John 15:7 Every human is a complex bundle of  thoughts, feelings, attitudes, desires, images, fears, hopes, doubts, opinions and ambitions. Our entire life is the result of the intertwining and interconnecting of these factors. Our thoughts trigger images and pictures and the emotions that go with them. These images and emotions trigger attitudes and actions. Our actions then have consequences and results that determine what happens to us. Denis Waitly said,"Life is about choices: There are two primary choices in life: to accept the conditions as they exist or accept the responsibility  for changing it." Reinhold Neibuhr quotes a serenity prayer, "god grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
Live simply, love generously, care deeply and speak kindly.
