"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy." (3 min 30 sec)


Welcome back, dear friends! In our last discussion, we explored how the Third Directive invites us to release our projections and cultivate a relationship with God based on love and trust. Now, let's dive into the Fourth Directive and discover what it means to "remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy."

    1. Fourth Directive: Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

    At first glance, this directive might seem like a simple reminder to set aside one day of the week for rest and worship. But there's a deeper meaning that goes beyond the literal interpretation. The Sabbath day is any day we choose to make holy. It's not about following a set of rules or observing a particular religious tradition. Rather, it's about creating sacred space in our lives for connection with God.
    So what does it mean to keep a day holy? Holy is synonymous with wholeness, oneness, and love. It's a state of mind that is untouched by the ego's belief in separation and sin. When we keep a day holy, we are choosing to align our thoughts and actions with the truth of our divine nature, rather than the false perceptions of the ego.
    In practice, this is setting aside time each day for quiet reflection, meditation, or prayer. It means engaging in activities that bring us joy and allow us to express our creativity and passion. It means spending time in nature, connecting with loved ones, or simply being present in the moment without judgment.
    Approach these activities with a sense of reverence and intention. When we bring our full attention to whatever we are doing we create a sacred space for divine connection to flow through us.
    It's also important to remember that keeping a day holy is not about striving for perfection or trying to escape the challenges of daily life. Rather, it's about bringing a sense of love to everything we do, even the most mundane tasks. When we approach life with an attitude of gratitude and forgiveness, we naturally align ourselves with the truth of love.
    So how can we practice this directive in our daily lives? Start by setting an intention to create sacred space in your day. It doesn't have to be a whole day - even a few minutes of quiet reflection makes a difference. Choose activities that bring you joy and allow you to express your creativity. And most importantly, approach everything you do with a sense of reverence and love, knowing that each moment is an opportunity for divine connection.
    As you go about your day, remember that holiness is not something we need to earn - it is our true nature, always available to us in the present moment.
    In the next part, we'll explore the Fifth Directive: "Honor your father and your mother." Get ready to discover how this teaching invites us to cultivate a deep sense of reverence for the love within ourselves and others.
    I am sorry.
    Please forgive me.
    Thank you.
    I love you.
