img_2326Q: What spiritual practices are practical to pursue in a busy world? Most people have jobs, families, and many distractions.

A:  The conscious pursuit of spiritual goals is the result of a choice and a decision. It actually requires only willingness and the capacity to follow through. Even a simple spiritual concept is a deceptively powerful tool. The simple decision to be kind, forgiving, and compassionate to all life in all its expressions, including one’s own self, is a scalpel that is capable of removing the major impediments to spiritual progress.      With humility, one can see that the mind is limited and incapable of seeing all the circumstances surrounding any event. Out of this arises the willingness to let go of condemnation and judgment. This process results in a willingness to surrender one’s experience of the world to God. It becomes apparent that the world does not really need one’s personal opinions about anything at all. If one decides to take a charitable view of life’s events, then alternate ways of interpreting circumstances, appearances, and other options open up.
