Remembering to Practice

Alright, so we know that the ideal state of consciousness is to radiate the divine love of the soul through the energetic heart in a continuous flow. Well, you know what? I went to the supermarket last week and I don’t recall doing this one time. But this morning, during our shopping trip, I actually remembered to do this twice. This is far from perfect, but it is progress. I think you get my point. It’s all about remembering to initiate the practice.

Why do we have so much difficulty remembering to apply the virtues through the practice of when-which-why? The reason is not complicated. We are so mesmerized by the world of the ego-personality that we don’t even know we are in a trance. This is not a new concept. It has been known and taught in many spiritual schools for hundreds of years in both the East and the West. It has been metaphorically described in the world’s religions and mythologies and it is explored today in such movies as The Matrix. The sad truth is that we are partly unconscious for most of our lives.
