I'm convinced that the great mystery fueling the universe is less concerned with moral doctrine and dogma than it is with relationship, and that any means for enriching sacred relationship is welcome. A spiritual practice is any discipline that calls us to attention, brings our truest self into being, and deepens our engagement with the numinous. If showing up for meditation at the zendo does this, great. If writing spiritual memoir does this, why not honor it?

Write a metaphor that describes your spiritual journey. Perhaps it is like peeling the layers of an onion, walking a labyrinth, or wearing out a pair of shoes. Linger with your metaphor, allowing it to teach you about your spiritual journey.
