This year my weekly newsletter Seeds is 19 years old. It was inspired by the prodigious work of metaphysician Emmet Fox. I wanted to send a weekly inspirational gift that was a quickie — to cause a deepening of spiritual thought, word, and deed. It seems to be working; I still have some of the charter subscribers.

Seeds XX, 2 Seed: Participate Relentlessly
The blessings of the Season of Light remain with us at this time of year but as echoes, as memories. Round about now is when our (often unreasonable) resolutions begin to waver—or, we begin to waver about our resolutions.
I think that’s why I liked this quote from Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir, Eat, Pray, Love:
You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.
Take a second, and really think about this. If you’re not going to participate relentlessly in your own blessings, who will? No one can participate in your life like you can. This is actually the step that spiritual people all over the world tend to miss. Namely, we revert to monasterial behaviors, and forget that we are called to bring the monastery into the world. And not the reverse.
Think, right now, of a blessing you seek particularly in 2018. What can you do right now to show the Universe you mean business? Do it. Participate relentlessly.
