The Merits of Spiritual practice

The merits of spiritual practice are infinite.  I’ve observed a behavior within spiritual communities (in all of them, doesn’t really matter which faith or religion or yoga studio) —  of just never ever doing enough. The pressure is in the community pushing for more, more, more seva or service, practices, mantras, asanas, etcetera.  And not stopping to look, and just appreciate what’s in the dharmic, karmic, bank account from previous years, lifetimes of spiritual practices.

I get why we do this.  It is never enough, until it is all enough.  And we see so many great spiritual leaders fall from grace, left and right around us.  We see the high achievers reach the highest hilts only to fall into the darkest disgraces.

When is it enough?  Right now, actually.

Bastante bien


The cup overflows, brims with goodness.  And the Yogi sits in this grace.  In the deepest darkest pits of hell went Christ and from his descent, he then ascended into Heaven.  The world could fall apart and be split asunder a billion times over. But the merits of spiritual grace are infinite.

Infinite means:


Never expiring.

And then we figure out, that we do everything by doing nothing at all.
