Spiritual Discernment

ironmt_7-04_076To cultivate an intentionally spiritual life, it helps to know who we are at our deepest core and the purpose to which we are dedicated. The practice of spiritual discernment is a practice of paying closer attention to the various attitudes, desires and thoughts that bubble up within. Discernment helps us listen and sort through this inner activity, with an eye toward discovering which of our inner impulses lead to decisions and direction consistent with our truest and best selves, and which detract us from our journey and quest. Spiritual discernment tells us we can trust our deepest desires as a key to discover our purpose or calling, as well as to live in harmony with the guiding forces of the universe.
