"The spiritual path is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don't know it." Marianne Williamson
There are days when being on a spiritual path is the last thing on my mind. I may have the concept stored in a brain cell but forgot to pay attention. I am thinking that the times I am feeling the most depleted and empty are those days when I was not present and mindful. I was still on the path but took a useless detour around. I got lost and tired...directly related to each other?
There are moments when I remember for an instant, then I lose track of the mundane and irritating (I can always return to it, if I must). Mindfulness is restorative.
Don't try too hard, but try it!
