It’s easy to get it twisted…
We don’t grow in spirit through studying, genuflecting, or reciting ancient verses. That’s all part of the process, but it can’t stop there…
We grow in spirit through tussling with it.
By questioning it.
By working with it.
By listening to out inner pulls and prods.
By experimenting with it, scientifically.
By seeing what works and what doesn’t.
We grow in spirit through applying it. Through opening ourselves to it and letting it work through our mouths, hands, eyes, and hearts.
All that studying, meditating, and contemplation must have an outward expression in the physical.
Go ahead. Spirit can take it.
Don’t pull any punches.
