Living in Spirit provides a rudder which guides us in seas both smooth and stormy.  Spirit is the one thing which is always there for us, regardless of the state of all the variables in our lives.  A spiritual practice helps us awaken to who we really are.  It moves us in the direction of awareness, of trust in the process of life and our own intuitive knowing.  A spiritual practice gives us a compass by which to begin navigating our lives anew.  It brings us into the present, where healing occurs and where joy perennially resides.  A spiritual practice puts us on a course which generates compassion, peace, love, and joy – building self esteem and bringing many blessings to ourselves and to all beings.
