Written by Teresa Proudlove

Continued from page 1

This doesn’t mean we have to hopelessly accept harmful or unworkable situations in our life. However, there is a flow and timing to all things. Disdaining our lives and believing we can only be happy when we haverepparttar great career, lose fifteen pounds, findrepparttar 107123 right love, make more money… does not facilitate change or happiness. It only creates more discontent. We can only experience peace and well-being now, in this moment.

Following, are three simple spiritual practices which foster our sense of well-being and peace now. The first practice, “A = Ask for Help,” begins with calling upon our higher power for help. The second simple practice, “B = Breathing Being,” reminds us to return to our breathing, our bodies and our God. The last step in this trio, “C = Call for Compassion,” teaches us a kinder, more compassionate way of dealing with life, ourselves and others. At times, acronyms for learning can seem overly cute and annoying, however, I could not ignore something that was revealed to me prayerful meditation. Also, practicing these spiritual ABC’s has shown merepparttar 107124 value of using simple, easily remembered practices during stressful moments and dark days. May these spiritual precepts add as much goodness to your life as they have to mine.
