Spiritual practice is for helping us to more effectively address the following important personal concerns and developmental needs:
- To reduce our habitual distractions,
- To focus on the immediate, direct experience of our consciousness in the present moment,
- To begin to let go of our rigid belief in our inherited conceptual worldview,
- To become free of the central burden of the separate self - with all its attachments and aversions,
- To prepare ourselves to more easily let go of unwholesome self-images and expand a sense of confidence, as well as focus the mind on the present,
- To be free from a divided and conflicted mind, and from the isolation of the separated self, and
- To improve our own mental disposition, gain personal psychological relief, and contribute to a more peaceful, sustainable, and joyful society.
