56 – Spiritual Practices – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

During our past weeks on this list l have listed a number of spiritual practices, given a brief definition/description of those and for some gone into more detail.  I want in the next weeks to look more deeply into practice with the hope that we see how to incorporate some of the practices into our lives.  Below I have listed the practices that have been mentioned.  You may want to go over this list and consider what practices you already incorporate in you life and what practices you sense a need to incorporate.  Don’t fall into the trap of trying to “do it all.”  Rather, trust that the Spirit can open your heart and mind to see the steps you need to take.

I would love to hear what practices you want us to address, so please feel free to let me know what practices you are doing, what they have meant to you, and what you think your next steps might need to be.
