They say "practice makes perfect."
I have been thinking a lot about the words practice and perfect within the realms of my spiritual work.
And I've come to realize - I don't want to be perfect.
My spiritual practice is never perfect, nor will it ever be. And I wouldn't want it any other way.
I love the lack of perfection. That's what fascinates me the most about my path. It will never be perfect. There will always be bumps in the road. I will always have further to go. There will always be little side trips that will teach me something along the way.
What I love the most about this spiritual work is that I will never know everything.
I don't practice to become perfect. I practice because I am curious about what lies within me. I practice because I love to learn. What absolutely excites me is that I will never know all there is to know. I am always finding out new connections with the Tarot, learning about new crystals, or having new spiritual experiences.
I practice because it is all I can do. There is no perfect. There is only what is.
I don't practice to become perfect. I don't yearn to do things the right way. I don't need to find the end result.
I practice because it's like coming home. I practice because I am curious as to what I will discover. I practice because it is what my spirit craves.
I believe that practice doesn't have to be sitting in silence. To sit, to find the silence within - yes, that is practice. But practice can also be something simple and ordinary. It can be talking a walk, or taking a daily dance break. Practice for you can mean carrying a crystal in your pocket, and checking in with its energy throughout the day. Your practice might be a daily Tarot card draw, or reading a different poem out loud every day. Your practice can just be breathing. Your practice can just be being. Just show up, however you choose to.
"Practice. Practice, and all is coming!" is one of my favorite quotes from Ashtanga Yoga teacher Shri K. Pattabhi Jois. This is a quote I can stand by. I don't practice for perfection. I practice for all that is to come.
