If you attempt to move back into an experience of yesterday, even if that experience was pleasurable, you may find it gone. And if you persist in your attempt to recapture that, you experience frustration and, very often, pain and confusion. Many people encounter great difficulty in attempting to live somewhere other than now.
Every week we feature a challenge to encourage your spiritual practice & growth.Read about MSIA Founder, John-Roger View Past Challenges
The challenge for this week is really quite simple: if you don't know, don't pretend to know.
It's very nice to keep this thought in mind. If you don't have the answer, don't pretend that you have an answer. It's really quite simple to keep yourself clear. Just say, "I don't know. I can't relate to that. I don't think I understood it. I don't have the answer." This is safe, safe territory.
