The matter of sharing one’s spirituality is not an easy one. One desires to share it with those whom one loves most, yet, it is indeed with them that it is somehow most difficult. That Your ministry stayed away from Nazareth is meaningful. The words of scripture that a prophet is without honor in his native land ring with wisdom. Repeated lifelong attempts to "preach" my beliefs have failed miserably; besides, it seems clear to me now that they smack of a "holier-than-thou" attitude which is an immediate turn off. This experience and what I read tell me that if I want to share what I have seen and what I have learned, I must let my life silently do the talking. The one thing to work hard at, at all times, is guarding against seeming "better". This, specifically, might be that which must be fought against most vehemently if one who wants to share his love for You would be able to do so. Within oneself one must put away anxieties about "reaching" the other. One must let God work through him.
The Cloud of Unknowing speaks of playing a "spiritual game" with You in which we hide the deepest desires of our heart from You because, in so doing, we anchor them in our spirit which, in truth, speaks more clearly to You - and so might it to the attuned spirit of another.
So many times in earthly things as well as spiritual I am brought back to the thought that "less is more". It pains me to think about the self-righteousness I know others see in me and the damage it has done. What remains then is mastering a life of silent example that makes me less, allowing You to become more. This may be the way You’d most want me to share with others.
