Flexing our spiritual muscle

Dear Ones,

I recently started exercising at the gym, attending a Pilates class. It had been 1.5 years since I last took care of my body that way, and the idea of “flexing our spiritual muscle” gently came to me this past Friday during class time.

How do we do this ‘flexing’? How do we exert spiritual wisdom and compassion in the midst of life’s vicissitudes, amid our mundane, and sometimes repetitive, encounters?

While pondering the question, I came to reflect upon the concept of ‘distancing’ or ‘detaching oneself’ spiritually.

In any situations, some more challenging than others, what does it take to distance oneself with our ego mind while remaining present with our Heart?

That is a great practice, I can tell; one that requires a great deal of control and exercise –yes, back full time to the gym of our daily life!

See you on Thursday, January 19, folks ❤ 🙂

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
