Is there anything more peaceful than a sleeping baby? My nephew, Mikey in 2006.

A major benefit of spiritual practice is that it literally clears away the emotional patterns of reaction and upset that clutter our mind and heart and take up so much energy.

A focused spiritual practice clears away the clutter of confusion from the mind.

I can’t believe how much of my time and energy I used to invest in feeling upset and irritated. I was CONSTANTLY taking offense. It took me many long and hard years to realize that manipulating others with my upsets and moods was making MY life miserable. I didn’t know any better. Truly, when i was a walking time bomb of emotion, I really thought that being upset and taking offense was my only power.

Manipulating people with my upsets felt compulsive in the moment, but their was always a horrible “hangover” afterwards.

I remember feeling so enraged because I felt so helpless. And then when I calmed down I would feel so awful because I had lost control and hurt the ones I cared about. It was a vicious cycle. I didn’t have anyone to help me.

It was not easy for me to reign in the wild and angry horses that my thoughts seemed to be. It was really challenging for me to learn HOW to value Peace of mind more than being right or defending myself. It’s been quite a journey. I’ve had SO much healing from staying focused on my spiritual practice.

Right now, SO MANY people are going through intense challenges. It seems like many people are highly sensitive and on the brink of a breakdown. I see it this way – that breakdown can be a HUGE BREAKTHROUGH if people decide that’s what they’re interested in. It requires being willing to let things change and to keep looking for the most loving choices. Always looking for the most loving choices IS the way to turn that breakdown into a breakthrough.

Learning to choose peace rather than attack has been the hardest thing I ever did AND the most worthwhile. I’m consistently amazed at how many benefits there are to having a strong spiritual practice and clearing out the old emotional clutter that repeats and repeats is just one of the miraculous benefits!
