Get out of your head and into your life

Be careful of a spiritual life that is mostly mental – accumulating more and more information and knowledge, conceptualizing new and improved concepts, analyzing and debating this or that idea, latching on to the latest and greatest spiritual guru.

Instead, pick the simplest truth and earnestly embrace it, one moment at a time. Perhaps that truth is: I can choose happiness right now; I will see all things before me through eyes of love and compassion; I will be present in this moment by simply responding in whatever slight way the situation requires; or I will be mindful of the the way things really are, and the truth of who I am. Have the resolve to live these simplest things. This is the wise and enlightened person.
