“The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath." (Mark 2:27) (1 min 42 sec)

    1. Spiritual practices are meant to serve our awakening not to be rigid rules that burden us.

    The "Sabbath" is the state of perfect rest in God. This is our natural state, which we have forgotten due to our belief in separation from God. We are always welcome to return to this state of oneness with our Creator, regardless of what's happening in our world.
    Jesus' statement that "the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath" suggests that spiritual practices, such as taking time for rest and devotion, are meant to support our journey back to God. They are tools to help quiet our minds and reconnect with our inherent holiness.
    However, when we become overly focused on the form of these practices, rather than their underlying purpose, we create obstacles to our spiritual growth. We begin to believe that our salvation depends on strict adherence to certain rules, rather than on our willingness to accept God's love.
    Jesus is reminding us that our spiritual journey is not about following rigid prescriptions. Instead, it is about opening our minds to the ever-present love of God and allowing that love to guide us to inner peace.
    'The "Sabbath" is any practice that helps us remember our oneness with God. It is not a stringent requirement but an invitation to rest in the truth of our being, whenever and however we feel called to do so.
