Spirituality & Acceptance

Just because you are devoted to following a spiritual path, attaining inner peace, or living a specific ideology doesn’t mean you should expect to achieve perfection. When you approach your personal evolution mindfully, you can experience intense emotions such as anger without feeling that you have somehow failed. Simply by being aware of what you are experiencing & recognizing that your feelings are temporary, you have begun taking the necessary steps to regaining your internal balance. You may feel guilty & angry at yourself or even feel like a hypocrite for not being able to maintain control after practicing being centered. However, being patient with yourself will help you more in your soul’s journey than frustration at your perceived lack of progress. Accepting that difficult situations will arise from time to time & treating your reaction to them as if they are passing events rather than a part of who you are can help you move past them. Practicing this form of acceptance & paying attention to your reactions in order to learn from them will make it easier for you to return to your center more quickly in the future. Doing the best you can in your quest for spiritual growth is vastly more important than striving for perfection. – DailyOM
