Welcome to day 16 of our Cookbook for a Sacred Life virtual course!
Today our topic is Getting Straight.
As we proceed down the path of spiritual practice, the question often arises of how to navigate our “old” world with our new and changing awarenesses. How do we approach old friends, interests, and relationships as we begin to evolve and change?
Your understanding of what the universe is all about changes as you proceed further along the path towards enlightenment. As your vantage point or perspective changes, you begin to understand more and more of “how it is.” With this greater understanding comes greater compassion…an acceptance of “how it is”…an ability to see the divine plan in everything…even in your failings and the failings of others.
In the course of your journey it is most likely that your day-to-day companions or friends may change. Some may fall away as your interest in the Spirit pulls you from the worldly interests which brought or kept you together, but new friends who share your current interests will appear. Of course, some of your existing relationships will move easily into this new domain and the relationship will become deeper and calmer…coming to exist in the eternal present.
QUESTION: How would it change your life “to see the divine plan in everything…even in your failings and the failings of others?” What is in your life right now needs that most?
