Another valuable skill we can develop on our life journey is the skill of reflection. To witness our life, our experiences, our relationships, or our behavior – and reflect on what has happened – is the doorway to understanding, the beginning of the possibility of new choices, and the ability to change. A regular habit of reflection – perhaps at the end of every ritual – or day, or week, or month – can give you the perspective you need to sharpen your discernment.
(And if you’re struggling to reflect, try to find a reliable mirror.)
Do you take time to reflect on your experience? What do you do with the insights you may receive? Do you act on them? Why or why not?
