We practice Qi Gung. We practice violin. We practice being kind. We practice sitting meditation and mindfulness exercises.
Practice is about deepening. As we deepen we develop the muscles needed to go deeper into the consciousness of the Body, Mind and Spirit.
If your mind is practicing despair your body will experience despair. For instance, if you are practicing watching the news, reading the news and listening to the news your BodyMindSpirit will take the hit.
The practice of “staying on top of the news” may then evolve and deepen into recreational bitterness with friends and internal hysterics within you.
Choose carefully what you are practicing today…and notice what arises.
