What you have to give up is...
Many don't understand when you become religious or spiritual you don't give up you gain. :) Pretty awesome isn't it? You bet it is and as you go through your new found life you will be so shocked at how things come together when you believe.
I'm not saying that suddenly life turns simple, you get rich, and all that you ever dreamed of comes true. However, if you truly believe you will start seeing things in a different light.
You will find as you look back over your life the things you thought were hellish, you will start to see the positive side of the outcome. Weird? Yes, it is but wonderfully weird and you will understand when it happens.
I found as I grew in my Spirituality that who I had once thought I was, I was not. What I had thought I wanted I did not. Our lives are ever changing, twisting and turning aligning with our Spirituality as we grow.
When you stop fighting that movement you grow faster, understand more and free up your spirit.
Open your heart, don't be afraid of what you might find in the world or within yourself.
Bless you and all those you touch,
