#305 Spiritual Farts

Let’s Move from Theory to Practice

In our last +1, we explored the analytics of American farting behaviors and compared that to the even more prolific Facebook-liking behaviors. (Laughing.)

Today, we’re going to explore the subject of farts a little more.

A particular, shall we say, spicy variety of farts.

Spiritual farts.

Yes, spiritual farts.

What are spiritual farts, you ask?

Well, let’s hear what Michael Beckwith has to say about it in Spiritual Liberation. He tells us: “To agree with the keys described here is one thing, to practice them is another. To read and study and have conversations about spiritual practices is good, but unless you incorporate them into your life, you won’t embody or integrate them—which means you aren’t receiving their benefits. Ask yourself, ‘How can I now move from theory into practice?’ “If you merely collect spiritual information without practicing it, all you will develop is a case of spiritual indigestion and constipation.”

I repeat: “If you merely collect spiritual information without practicing it, all you will develop is a case of spiritual indigestion and constipation.”

THAT, my friend, is a spiritual fart.

You study a lot. You collect a lot of wisdom. But you don’t put it into practice.
