Have you ever wondered if you should give up on your spiritual practice?

Hello, Spiritual Warriors! Welcome to this week’s edition of The Source. Let’s talk about the temptation to give up.

I’m in the midst of my Masters of Wisdom & Meditation Teacher Training session that began in June. It can be a pretty intense process for many who find themselves not only managing their studies but also navigating difficult life challenges.

It’s common for my students to email me about struggles they are experiencing: my loved one just died; I lost my job suddenly; family is coming to my house to stay; my business is struggling… you get the idea.

Although it may seem counterintuitive, because you feel compelled to carve out more time to handle life’s challenges, abandoning your meditation practice, or your spiritual practice, is the last thing I recommend.

It is in these times of overwhelm and stress that our practice really shines through! It’s in these times that our best version is revealed because we stick to a daily meditation practice. It’s in these times that we more easily move through change and strife with greater grace and greater ease.

If you are finding yourself at a crossroads, a fork in the road, moving through a mega-change, or having to make a challenging decision, then I encourage you to cling even more tightly to your spiritual practice. It’s what is going to help you to come out the other side owning your impact and stepping into your power.

I encourage you leave a comment below about your experience moving through change and challenges while staying committed to your practice.

In the meantime, I’ll see you in the GAP!!! Peace. -davidji

  1. Hi Davidji:

    Long time.
    My mom passed last Thursday. I am in Bremen, GA after taking care of her the last month of her life. I am so greatful for my illness that allowed me to pick up from CA and take care of her in GA. One of the many things I am working on is Compassion. For myself and others.
    She always had a ‘powerful prayer’ she would say for me because of my chronic illnessess so I was able to keep that and I have started saying that “powerful prayer everyday in addition to my once or twice per day meditations.
    Thank you again for all you do to help us stay the course. Still trying to find my passion but for now I say Namaste

  2. My only son (age 42) has banned me from seeing my grandkids (girl 8, boy 7) or him and my daughter inlaw whom I love as my own. His reasoning is that politically we don’t match up so no room for me in their lives, unless I decide to come around to his way of thinking. I raised an open minded good hearted person who has turned into an irrational mean being. This hurts to the core, everyday. If I didn’t have Davidji and his guided meditations every morning to get me started by raising my vibration and showing up for the sacred precious present moment and the words “what am I going to do with it” I would truly have given up on life. Meditation is the medicine for the mind. 🙏🙏. My gratitude for meditation and how it reminds us of what is real is ongoing, ever present 🙏😇

  3. Thank you, Davidji, for this timely reminder.
    My meditation practice is generally strong, but yesterday I wondered what the point of my spiritual practice actually is (a bad day). That passed in about 3 seconds, but it is a reminder that our practice is so important in the struggles of our lives, as well as when we are riding the wave with strength and courage, and when we are in still and peaceful waters.
    Thank you,

  4. For me, DavidJi, never! Spiritual practice is all day for me! Meditation time is the steak! Giving up my spiritual practice is like ….giving up looking at the sky, feeling the grass on my feet! Never giving up!
