A new and fresh experience to revive your spirit
One of the most surprising things about a spiritual approach is that what's most effective is often
the opposite of what makes the most “sense”. It seems like attacking a problem makes the most
sense, but accepting is often way more useful. It feels like fighting our way out is the best way to
victory, and then it turns out surrendering the problem to a higher power works way better.
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov teaches that heaven/he world-to-come isn’t when we reach a
spiritual buzz and maintain it forever. Heaven is a state where every moment is a fresh and new
experience of infinite light and love.
So, in a time of isolation and immobility, the best thing to do, the most spiritual approach, maybe
trying something new, or even better, doing something old in an entirely new way. Treat yourself
to a new experience of something or someone you think you know so well. Open your heart to a
fresh experience that can give you a little taste of heaven.
