Spiritual Growth on Vacation
I remember hearing from a dear spiritual teacher of mine, many years ago, that summer was the time for personal spiritual growth work. I cannot, for the life of me, remember what the time was for any other season, so that must mean that it meant something meaningful for me. 🙂 I know that I was curious as to how that was supposed to work; at the time my young daughter was in school and summer meant that, as ‘The Mom’, my job description included scheduling her time while she was out of school for the summer holidays. How was I supposed to concentrate on my spiritual growth when the organizing aspect of parenting was in full swing in the summertime? At the time I assessed that since my wise and wonderful teacher didn’t have children, she may not have had the full picture as to how full summer was for parents!
