In New Rain Online and New Rain Retreats, there are themes we turn to again and again for support with spiritual practice. We’ve compiled them here in this free resource for you, if they have resonance for your own path. You’ll find inspiration and short practices to experience questions such as, “Why do you practice? How do you enter into an awakened perspective?” and “What would it look like to practice beautifully?” Click here to open or download Three Foundations of Spiritual Practice.
The Gift of Sacred Teaching
In section two of the booklet, there is a suggestion to try reading a passage of Hazrat Inayat Khan and seeing into the words. Here is one to try out:
It is mentioned in the Bible, ‘Unless the soul is born again it will not enter the kingdom of heaven.’ Being born again means that the soul is awakened after having come on earth, and entering the kingdom of heaven means that this world, the same kingdom in which we are standing just now, turns into heaven as soon as the point of view has changed. Is it not interesting and most wonderful to think that the same earth we walk on is earth to one person and heaven to another? And it is still more interesting to notice that it is we who change it; we change it from earth into heaven, or we change it otherwise.
