Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session we're going

to talk about spiritual maturity.

Now the word spirituality lands

differently for different people.

Now personally, I was someone

that was, uh, very opposed

to that word for a long time.

And it was mainly because I just

didn't understand what it meant.

The way I use spirituality is just to

refer to how we understand ourselves

beyond just the thoughts moving

through our mind, our emotions, or

even our external accomplishments.

And many could argue that you are on a

spiritual journey, uh, just exploring

this app and these meditations and

exploring who you are beyond just the

thoughts passing through your mind.

And so what is spiritual maturity?

Well, there's a lot of different

ways to think about that.

But one of the ways I think we can

look at maturation in this journey

is just the recognition that there's

no internal or external experience

that can lead to lasting peace.

There's no internal or external

experience that can lead to lasting peace.

This is one of the first insights

that really pulls us to go deeper

into meditation and into just the

exploration of what it means to be human.

Sometimes this happens because

we started meditating and we

saw that, wow, everything is

constantly changing or in flux.

And it, it triggers us to

recognize that, you know, where

can I take refuge in anything?

And the meditation traditions,

they often say that the first stage

of wisdom, a person is considered

wise when they've truly seen the

impermanent nature of experience.

And because it's only then that, that

person is a bit disillusioned by the idea

of accumulating a lot of things, whether

it's external material things, or even a

momentary feeling or emotion or sensation.

The more, we pay attention to that

flow of external experience as it

changes around us, the relationships,

people, material, things, and

our internal landscape, thoughts,

emotions, sensations, the more we see

it's just, it's constantly changing.

There's no refuge to be taken in, in any

given moment in such that it's going to

last forever, that this hmm, particular

arrangement of experiences is now going

to be where we find peace forever.

Instead that sparks an interest and an

understanding that perhaps a deeper peace,

a deeper joy, a deeper happiness can

only be found by learning to move fluidly

with the changing landscape of our life.

The good news is that's what you're

exploring each time you meditate.

So hopefully this inspires you a little

bit more to, uh, continue your practice

and to maybe even think about maturity

in a, in a different kind of way/ as

always thank you for your practice.

And I'll talk to you in the meditation.
