Why is it important to practice self-reflection?Our self-reflection allows us to find our way back to God. This journey provides us with the opportunity of turning away from external distractions and turning towards an expectant God.
In Inward Journey, Theologian Howard Thurman says that ".... at such times we can know the Spirit of the living God, not as an idea or form, but as an enveloping presence emerging all the parts of our being …. It is ever a grace and benediction to be able to come to a halt, to stop, to pause, to make rest a motion." While we always start our inward journey as seekers; we leave the self-reflection transformed because of our desire to know and be known.
