Spiritual practice is about opening to life
“Listening is one of the basic secrets of entering into the temple of God.”
On the path of awakening, the focus is often on creating something new in our experience – peace, empowerment, abundance, healing, grace – and it can be easy to get lost within our desires. Our newfound strengths become a playground of discovery; however, the most important aspect of creating a balanced mind, body and spirit is cultivating the ability to receive.
All that you seek is already within you. Master the art of listening. Be willing to accept a compliment. Know that peace and grace are yours… Now. We become receptive when the mind is still, when “I want” transforms into “I am.”
So, rather than seeing your journey as creating or attaining spiritual mastery, see it as releasing all that blocks you from seeing that you are already whole and complete. Nothing is missing. The sacredness of life is all around you, simply waiting to be absorbed into your experience.
Today my intention is to honor this moment as sacred. All that I seek is already here.
