The Problem With ‘Doing’ Spiritual Practice …
… is wanting something,
fearing not getting it,
and ignoring what is already present.
The way to salvation or liberation free from suffering
is to see the Lord of Love everywhere, and in everyone.
That seeing is the Lord of Love.
It was never anywhere else.
In the early stages of spiritual practice, we do something. Gradually and synchronistically, the inspirations of realisation occur. We discover that wanting what we already are is an interference to realisation.
Spiritual practice is a reminder; it is the mindfulness training boat that takes us to our destination – pure awareness. Once we have arrived, we no longer need the boat of longing. We can just be.
