Daily Spiritual Practice
Does "reading" inspirational material as a first step in our daily spiritual practice have to occur between the pages of the book? In the following quote, we're encouraged to read nature.
"Go outside and spend some time quietly observing the natural world around you. It doesn’t matter if you live in a secluded hermitage out in the woods, or in a busy urban center full of bustling people, or even in a carefully landscaped suburban neighborhood. Nature is not something 'out there' beyond human reach — we are deeply embedded in the natural world all the time." ~Allison Leigh Lilly
So we can be creative about this first step.
(1) We can "read" nature.
(2) We can read from an oracle card deck for guidance, like my favorite one: Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle (Book & Cards)
(3) We can read a book that's meant to be a daily devotional, like 365 Goddess: A Daily Guide to the Magic and Inspiration of the Goddess.
(4) We can read anything we want that we think will encourage spiritual growth. What might you read?
Next Tuesday, we'll look at the next step in the process.
