We sometimes approach spiritual practice with a sense -- conscious or otherwise -- that it will allow us to transcend our lives. Perhaps we hope that by becoming awakened we will have the power to become detached from our experiences of pain, grief, or heartbreak.
No one can be awake all the time. We sleep and wake and go back to sleep. We're clear, then confused, then wide-eyed again. We feel safe, then nervous, then at peace again. It makes being human a practice of return.
