Purification of the mind and heart is essential on our journey to Christhood. If our minds and hearts are tainted with anything less than love we will find ourselves in a perpetual state of uncertainty, wondering why we aren't where we want to be. We will always be questioning and not receiving answers. Asking, "What am I doing wrong? Why hasn't my life changed to what I desire?" The answer can be complex, as we are all unique individuals, but the one thing I know for sure is that if we are preoccupied with the things of this world then that is one of the reasons why we haven't reached our ultimate state of being. Starting today, let us make it a point to always purify our minds and hearts as Jesus did, so that we can begin to be the example in this world that he was for us.
