“Just because the left brain cannot conceive of infinity, doesn’t mean the right brain cannot experience infinity.”
Spiritual Practice consists of time devoted to the Spiritual Realms.
The Spiritual Realms are not physical and hence cannot be communicated in the Physical Realm. They can only be experienced.
Since the brain has two halves and the left brain is the logical side; it follows, the right brain is non-logical.
Spiritual Practice is a right brain activity. i.e. the Spiritual Realms are emotional/intuitive/experiential.
The results of Spiritual Practice are always an emotional/intuitive experience.
So really, any activity that generates an emotional/intuitive experience of Spirituality can be thought of as Spiritual Practice.
Forms of Spiritual Practice
Prayer, fasting, meditation, good works, chanting, rituals, prostrations are among the most common forms of Spiritual Practice.
Because they are, usually, activities that generate an emotional/intuitive experience of Spirituality.
I find I do more Spiritual practice when I feel stressed out.
When my wife died in ’07, I was destroyed. Spiritual practice kept me sane.
Spiritual practice kept me closer to the Spiritual Realms and hence, closer to my wife.
And, I was able to draw strength and insight from the Spiritual Realms.
In the Christian tradition the most commonly used prayer is the “Our Father”
Examples of prayers: praise, acceptance, thanksgiving, forgiveness, blessing, request, repentance.
