Be a "spiritual conformist"

It used to be a big issue whether or not
one was considered a conformist
or nonconformist. But what matters
most is that our lives are
in conformity with God.

Are there times when it feels as if peer pressure or the "herd instinct" is dominating our lives? If so, perhaps it's time to become what might be called a "spiritual conformist?

What is a spiritual conformist? Wouldn't it be one who conforms his thought and life to divine Spirit, God, not to materialistic patterns? A spiritual conformist seeks to listen to God; he prays and strives to be reliant on and obedient to divine Love. A spiritual conformist strives to express God-given qualities such as love, patience, joy, peace, individuality, even when it would seem nearly impossible to do it.
