The Classroom is Your Life

Your spirituality IS your life. 

Your life is a classroom, a lab that tests your beliefs, that gives you space to practice (oh, that word is so much more important than you think) the things that you believe to be most true about the world. 

Don’t be surprised if you discover that you’re struggling in this classroom. 

Don’t be surprised to find out that judging people comes faster than—and as natural as— breathing, or that anger is lingering right underneath the surface, or that desire and envy are your constant companions. 

Don’t be surprised, but don’t be content either. 

Realize it, name it, and stay committed to the path of growth. 

And keep practicing.
