It’s exactly the same with the spiritual journey- one boards the coach, disembark a lot of times, and reboard after refreshing one’s focus. Some spiritual travellers might feel dejected and release frustration by complaining and blaming whoever they can, including their very belief, some might give a few days’ gap to meditation, yet others might take up a new hobby to distract. However, once the pressure is released one way or the other, and passengers have reenergised their belief the positive mindset jumps back on the driving seat for further progression, till the next break at the next station for onward and upwards voyage.
So, if you’re feeling tired, in need to reground yourself or a deep breath of mundane freedom, then it’s ok because such feelings endorse the fact that you are on a journey and definitely on the right coach. ‘Stretching the leg’ is a must to progress. Gradually, the stations become fewer and far between as you wouldn’t need too many breaks. The only difference is that spirituality is all about the journey and not the destination.
