How to never ever give up on the spiritual path

The Upanishads have compared a spiritual aspirant's journey to a razor's edge.

In the book, 'Life is a dream; Realize it' by Joy Thomas, she writes:

"Many quail before the impossible demands of Sadhana. When confronted by calamity, you must attach yourself to this sadhana even more firmly, instead of losing faith in it and slacking off. The drug should not be given up when it is most needed. The pity is, when the first disappointment faces you, you lose courage and give up..." #prayer #faith #spirituality

We check e-mails on our phones as we eat. We forget to laugh when our loved ones share a joke and we forget to smile.

We are too busy to smile. Arguments erupt too easily.

Ask yourself: Do I really need to react to this? How important is this to what I do in my life? #musings
