Spiritual Practices, Exercises, and Meditations

The "Medicine Cabinet"

Spiritual practices are useful and appropriate only when they are, and not to be used indescriminately. They are medicines and/or supplements. A practice or exercise is given by someone who can determine if it is needed and how to apply it. They must be correct for the individual or group, and need to be used in the correct manner, "dosage" in the right ways, and for the appropriate length of time. For best use, they should be monitored. Using a practice without knowing IF it should be used, and how it should or may work is like taking medication randomly.

This section includes some writings about the use of practices plus many practices. Because they are here does not mean you should apply them. Ask if you are drawn to one - or use your intuition and guidance. You have it, certainly. It is only a matter of if you actually clearly listen and apply it. There is a general "problem", however; with most people in their following what they are drawn to, desire to do, or intrigues them. More on this, the approach to practices, and many more spiritual practices are found on the practices pages: page 1 and page 2. More spiritual practices and recitations can be found on the audio page. There are many other practices not contained on this web site. You would really be best off working with someone who knows. Unknowing application is not only futile, but may be harmful to your health.
