IT'S CALLED SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
This seems like a good time to remind myself (and maybe you too) that this is all spiritual practice. Which means you don't have to meditate 'perfectly', your new moon rituals don't have to look like anyone else's, and posting mystical things that look 'perfect' on social media will have little impact unless there is something deeper going on there as well.
Here is a great big secret.
YOU ARE ALREADY WORTHY. WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE IN OR QUESTION, SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES FULL OF FEELING AND MYSTERY ARE YOUR BIRTHRIGHT.
So I say to you as I say to myself - stay on guard, awake to the tricks of the critical mind that seek to undermine your magic; ignore the inner judge that tells you that somehow you have come up short, you haven't done enough, there is something more you need to buy, to read, some new privation you must subject yourself to in order to earn your heart-to-heart meeting with the All That Is.
That we call this spiritual practice should be not only a great relief, but a great invitation. It means all we have to do is show up just as we are, wherever we are, then breathe and connect to the Mystery. From there, the only thing required of us is to stay awake and SEE WHAT HAPPENS. You can start or reinvigorate your relationship with the higher realms at any moment, even this exact moment right now.
Let's abandon the illusion that we know it all and just stay students, stay humble, and practice.
