Walking the Spiritual Path: The importance of daily practice

Stay present, alert and connected with the power of Now and the power of awareness which is who you truly are. Eckhardt Tolle

Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success. Shiv Khera

The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places. Unknown

When we truly commit to our spiritual path, we also commit to daily spiritual practice. Our spiritual path requires daily time and focus to be successful. The modern world has so much distraction in it. Each click moves our focus away from our spiritual being, and takes us further from where we truly want to be. Our higher self is never going to grab our phone out of our hand, nor demand that we sit down to meditate.

This is free will. This is choice — our choice. How we spend our time is our choice. Our choices create our world. So when we don’t keep up our spiritual practice, it is easy to drift into the silly, shallow, superficial and empty. Of course we can go there. Again, free will and choice. But is it really what we want?

That is why daily spiritual practice is so valuable. It acts as a touchstone reminding us of what we want: the calm, clear inner peace of our higher self. First thing in the morning is a perfect time for the daily ritual of sitting down to bring focus inward to our higher mind and self. It sets the tone for the rest of our day and puts us on the path of mindfulness and awareness. It directs our attention to our true self. It places our feet on the path of the marvelous life our higher mind and soul has laid out for us: if only we pay attention.

Affirmation: I commit to my higher mind and soul.
