Many of you might have wondered what does this user name – Sipractce – stand for? As you might have guessed from the general tone of my essays, they are intended to explore philosophy of life and living, in the context of our day to day life. This is pne aspect of Spirituality in Practice. In a shortened form it stands as Sipractice.
Spirituality in practice is merely a journey, with perfection only as the goal. The goal is something always to aspire for. Each accomplishment sets the standards for the next higher goal, in the spiritual journey. Such goal setting and goal seeking have to be purposeful with a larger intent, a desire to seek harmony within and with everything external. What is “within” and what is “external” and how do we seek such harmony between the two, how do we recognize such harmony and how can we revel in such harmony are all aspects of the spiritual journey. This journey is not intended merely for the old and intellectually introspective. Instead such journey is our nature and thus all of us are engaged in it – young and old, of all genders, literate and illiterate, strong and weak, rich and poor, of all nations and religions, ….
Since perfection is never accomplished, I wanted to reflect that in my user name. As you will note, it is Sipractce, with an “i” missing in the practice!
There can be several pathways for Spirituality in practice. One is to write essays and share with others, for reflection by the readers, as it relates to their life and circumstances. Another avenue is to contribute and participate in charitable acts for the needy. In this regard, I am part of an organization called AASAI (American Association for the Social Advancement of India). Please visit WWW.AASAI.org for details. Please contribute to their causes if you wish. This request may be timely, if you are considering any year end tax deductible contributions. For those who have contributed, already, a big Thank You! But, be assured that reading and commenting on my blog essays and AASAI are parallel efforts. You are not in any way obliged to contribute, just for reading the essays. The later is a favor you do to the author and hopefully you do benefit as well!
With best wishes
