Distractions, Distractions…

After only four days of “preparation,” I’m finding it difficult to maintain an intensely spiritual mindset. I seem to be able to handle normal day-to-day distractions, but let something unusual (or unusually irritating) pop up and concentration becomes nearly impossible.

It’s times like this that make me think I should abandon Paganism and become a Buddhist. But somehow I think I’d have the same problems.

I spent some extra time in meditation last night, but all I got on the topic of fertility were images of rabbits and black soil.

Tonight’s meditation will be on the goddess Ostara.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
