“Being religious means asking passionately the question of the meaning of our existence and being willing to receive answers, even if the answers hurt.”

Paul Tillich


Doing something religiously conjures up images of strict adherence, and maybe even obedience without question, to a belief system. In common language people will say “I do it religiously” meaning that whatever they are referring to occupies and very important role in their daily activities and they are not likely to miss it for any small reason. In spiritual terms, ‘religiously’ refers to the faithful and reverential discharge of a duty, for example attending a worship service every morning, or lighting incense as a form of offering every evening, or helping serve food at a mission.

The power of anything done religiously lies in the personal choice to not allow anything else to disrupt the activity and also in the respect with which the activity is performed. Whatever you do daily to practice the Presence, if you add to your practice a sense of respect and heightened value, you will begin to elevate your practice in importance in your life allowing it to occupy a powerful status in your mind.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
