A spiritual practice is considered an action that should be done daily for an extended period to attain certain benefits, blessings, or results that are beneficial to you. They exist in all traditions and have been present throughout our history. Essentially, spiritual practices are a powerful tool for self-awareness and self-discovery. The mind-ego has difficulty with them since its only focus is on the result. It starts building expectations and ideas, foreshadowing many scenarios around them; for the mind-ego, it’s a building experience of becoming something different.

In reality, your spiritual practice shows you where you are and what’s present within you. It can show you shadow aspects of yourself: frustration, shame, laziness, hubris, and so many other aspects to be seen and integrated. It’s quite a journey if you allow it to be so.
