This is a blog post for those interested in reading essays on life in general. In our rush to do better, feel better and be happy, we tend to miss a large part of who we are, what we already have and the happiness which is natural and within us all the time. When we stop, look around and “smell the roses” on hand, then it becomes easier to do better in whatever we are doing. Good feelings and a genuine happiness also comes forth as naturally as the water flows down stream or the rain soaks the dry earth, thus making things grow on their own! This is Spirituality in Practice!
But the SIP is always a work in progress. While perfection is the goal, we need to keep the “I” or ego in check to gain the most of it. So, we have named this blog: Sipractce — SIP with one letter “i” missing!
