Spiritual Practice for November
Spiritual Practices, exercises for the mind, heart, and soul.
Caring for spiritual wellbeing is often the last thing on our list, but it is important! I would like to challenge you to find a way to engage regularly and want offer up some possibilities.
This month: Being Present
SLOW DOWN! Life passes quickly, spoken words fly past us never to be heard again, and the leaves’ color last only a short time. Take time to be present, to examine the movement of your body, the sound of the wind, or and other thousands of seemingly mundane task you engage in. Try to push away all those thoughts and distractions that are pulling you out of the now. Instead, watch the tines of the undulate as they pass over the grass or really listen to the words of your friend as they tell a story, instead of thinking about the advice you wanted to give.
This life is a gift, we shouldn’t be worrying about the next thing but experiencing this moment. The present is one of God’s greatest gifts to us.
