Habit energy and spiritual ignorance

1011934_379373332168981_606847322_n

If I twirl a pen in my fingers repeatedly, I will eventually get really good at it. I will be able to do it faster and faster without dropping it. That’s what habit energy is. You do it enough, over and over again, and you get really good at it. It’s the same thing with seeing the world through spiritual ignorance. We see the world this way repeatedly, and we get really good at. It becomes our fixed way of seeing. When I say “spiritual ignorance,” I’m not meaning it to be derogatory or a slam. For me, “spiritual ignorance” is simply not seeing things as they truly are. In time it becomes a habitual way of seeing. Jesus once said that if the eyes are good, the whole body is good. In other words, the transformation we need is to see or perceive things as they truly are.
