Pastors who are too Busy for God should read David Deida

Sometimes God’s work gets in the way of a person’s relation with God. In no profession is that more true than being a pastor, a new study shows. Six out of every 10 Christians feel their hectic schedules keep them from spending time with God, it reports. Two thirds of pastors surveyed said their overloaded pace of life interfered with growing in the Lord.

If these people have no time to contact the Divine, how can lay people manage it at all?

The super busy are increasingly multitasking their spirituality. A workout turns spiritual when you do yoga. Artists and politicians mix their religious lives with their work.

Perhaps the best way to retain your connection to God is to try seeing His signature in everything — the Buddhist notion of, “Open yourself to love.”

Picking up from David Deida’s insightful book . . . Instant Enlightenment:

Your loving may be truncated for days as you become lost in duties, chores and emotions—raising a family, succeeding at a career, talking, sexing, or eating. You may not be opening to God for the sake of your temporary experience. Your ever-changing life never quite fulfills you for good and you know it.

Forgetting to love is the usual life of subtle torment.

If this spoke to you, here are five similar articles.
