Glimpse of the day, October 23rd.
- When little obstacles crop up on the spiritual path, a good
practitioner does not lose faith and begin to doubt, but has the
discernment to recognize difficulties, whatever they may be, for what
they are - just obstacles, and nothing more. It is the nature of
things that when you recognize an obstacle as such, it ceases to be
an obstacle. Equally, it is by failing to recognize an obstacle for
what it is, and therefore taking it seriously, that it is empowered
and solidified and becomes a real blockage.
