Spiritual Practice – Every Moment We’re Practicing Something

The Ongoing Journey of Presence: a Spiritual Practice

Spiritual practice is often seen as designated activities like meditation, prayer, or yoga. But in truth, we are practicing and cultivating some quality of consciousness every moment. Whether aware of it or not, our thoughts and actions shape our presence. This moment-to-moment practice can transform into a journey of integrating awakened consciousness when brought into conscious awareness.

  • Every interaction is an opportunity to practice patience, empathy, and deep listening.
  • We can practice seeing beyond surface identities to connect with people’s essence.
  • Regular activities become mindfulness practices when done with full attention.

  • Taking up a formal practice trains the mind and provides vehicles for awakening.
  • They build capacity for presence and equip us with tools to meet each moment.
  • But practice is not confined to particular activities. It is the ongoing journey of presence.

When we bring awareness to this moment as a spiritual practice, ordinary activities become sacred. Each experience unfolds us into deeper wisdom. The practice is simply meeting this moment with full presence.
