In 2002, I was struggling with my spiritual life.  I basically didn’t have one and was feeling inadequate spiritually.  Whatever I did was not quite the ‘right’ thing or not ‘good enough’.  Then I heard this song on the radio while driving somewhere and it opened up my heart to accept myself and my spirituality just as it was.

Billy Joel – Just the Way You Are

You too, may be struggling with an aspect of yourself.  We get so much information from various places as to what is a ‘correct’ spiritual practice.  Inevitably, we are not as evolved as we would like to be, or that we think that we should be.  We don’t believe what we are told to believe, or lack sufficient trust to simply accept.  Development of your spiritual side actually is a lot of work.  A lot of work, that is done very slowly and at times is painful.  One of the first steps in being able to develop your own spirituality, is to accept yourself just as you are.
