“When we practice anything, we tend to seek proof of our progress. “Are we there yet? How far have we come?” In order to do so, we may seek out others we respect and compare our experiences with theirs. Unless we keep our perspective and surrender our judgments, however, we can invalidate ourselves constantly because we haven’t yet “seen the light,” “felt the overwhelming bliss of existence,” or “cured ourselves of an illness.”
Do not get trapped in measuring your spiritual attainment or progress by certain dramatic experiences. Instead know that the true measure of your evolvement is in how much you are able to recognize the essence, the truth of Divinity in everything, everyone, and in EVERY experience.”
Michael J. Tamura, in “You Are the Answer”
