Our spiritual practice makes a difference for every being on this planet. How cool is that?
When so many are suffering and it can seem like we don’t know how we can really be effective in relieving the pain of others, it’s important for us to know that our spiritual practice of prayer and meditation brings tremendous benefit.
Having talked with many spiritual students over the years, I’m aware that it’s common for people to put off their spiritual practice in favor of getting small errands and chores done.
To our ego-identified self, we get a sense of accomplishment when we can tick off something from our to do list.
The choice to get ego satisfaction instead of spiritual healing is like stepping into quicksand.
It takes us nowhere we’d like to go and it brings no benefit. It’s just a giant distraction and it only validates the ego’s idea of the world.
What really brings lasting benefit is our practice of patience, kindness, gentleness, compassion, and generosity. When we can be mindful all day, we’re bringing benefit to all.
When we can learn to be patient with situations we used to be upset by, we’re bringing benefit to all.
When we feel worried or concerned about people we can see them in good health, happy, enjoying life, and prospering instead of entertaining negative fantasies about them.
This spiritual practice does take practice.
It also requires time, energy and attention.
And in return we get EVERYTHING.
What’s more: spiritual practice SAVES TIME.
And that’s time we can invest in things like having fun or running errands – you choose.
We can do our spiritual practice every day all day and get very good at it, thus transforming our life and the lives of our brothers and sisters. We can make higher choices. It’s so worth it!
Thank you for practicing with me today!
Today, with our effective spiritual practice, we avoid the ego insanity and bring benefit to all!
