SBNR Daily 11-11-10: To The Beat Of Your Drum

SPIRITUAL BOOK EXCERPT:

The impact of our ‘spiritual life,’ after all, has to do with the spirit in which we approach people and events. That spirit displays itself as much in the moments of frustration as in the moments of inspiration. As we stew in reactive emotions, we are engaging in ‘spiritual practice,’ however unhelpful, which affects our presence to ourselves and others.
