This Week’s Quotation:

Practical spirituality isn’t chasing after something wonderful, whether you see that as being spiritual or not. It is staying where you are and letting what is full of wonder find you. And it is letting a world be created—or re-created—because you are willing to be exactly where you are. Practical spirituality is welcoming what is coming to you from within and letting it out, and it is welcoming what is coming to you from without and letting it in.

So how do you welcome what is within you? Creating time and space that welcomes what is within you is a way of acknowledging and honoring that reality. This is the essence of meditation. It is the heart of worship. You honor your own spirit, which is part of the spirit of all, when you give it a place to live and breathe in your awareness. You become a vessel for that spirit, which begins to overflow into the world. You have ceased looking for that experience. You have been willing to be where you are and let your inner reality find you.

Practical Spirituality

David Karchere
Author, Becoming a Sun

I hope that in reading these words, you become more fully present where you are—more fully rooted in this present moment and more fully aware of who you are.

In being fully present, we reclaim any energy flying off in 10 million directions so that it lands through our body right where we are. When that happens, the gravity of who we are attracts whatever is meant to orbit around us and draws to us whatever is meant to join us.

So may it be.

What does it mean to become a sun?

Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.

  1. No need to search for something out there that will hopefully give me a clue as to who I am and what I’m here to do. Just let the Reality of who I am be expressed right where I am. With each expression another dimension of who I am becomes known to me and to those with whom I share this life.

  2. “So how do you welcome what is within you? Creating time and space that welcomes what is within you is a way of acknowledging and honoring that reality.”

    Yes! Meditation is a gift that keeps on giving!!!!

  3. Love it. Perhaps the most famous lecture of the early 1900’s was Russell conwell’s “Acres of Diamonds”, based on the true story of a man who searched the world for diamonds for years only to return home and find them in his own back yard. Its all right here! Being where you are, being where I am, being fully present. Absolutely. No need to search when I realize its all within. Again thanks for the brilliance of the Sun, of David, and of BECOMING A SUN. Love, Tom C.
