Being In the World But Not of the World

Being In the World But Not of the World

How do we take our spiritual practice and live it everyday?

Those of us who are committed to a spiritual path can sometimes feel split in two. There’s the contemplative, ascetic side of our nature, the part that loves meditation, silence and oneness with God. Then there’s the other side of us that’s out there in the world earning a living, being a consumer, friend and partner.

How do we merge these two aspects of ourselves that seem disparate but in reality are one? 

Is there a way to apply our spiritual practice into everyday living?

The exciting answer is, YES! 

As Pema Chodron reminds us, “Whatever is happening is the path to enlightenment.”
