    What is the question you ponder the most about during a day when you are focused on spiritual growth? How do you go about finding the answers to it?

    'How am I falling short of the way Jesus wants me to live?' 'Why?'

    I reflect on that every night before I go to sleep and every morning when I awake - after thanking God for another day.

    It is very good to look within our own mind to find the shortcomings we struggle with in the practice, so i am very much agree with you on this :)

    How do I maximize good, reduce bad and when do I need to use the Serenity Prayer and leave it to God.

    I'm very concerned about the question as to whether or not I will be saved

    I've done some horrible things to people in my past and yes, I know God forgives...

    But I'm still worried :(

    If you have changed the way you used to be, to someone who does not hurt others, i would say you have done what God ask of you :) To become a better person then you used to be.

    Maybe you should leave that to God. The Serenity Prayer might work for you. You can't change the past. You can apparently only do good and reduce bad for the present and the future (God willingly).

    Not applicable. It is a labyrinth with no exit (in my opinion) and as such I don't go there - seeing all too often how it affects others. :oops:

    I can live with doubt.

    Desire for certainty is the craving that a lot of spiritual seekers don’t recognise as craving.

    What am I going to have for dinner tonight?

    I wander aimlessly through Giant Eagle until I find something that looks appealing.

    "Does this matter?"
    Honestly, I usually try to do less, and see what happens.

    $1000 toilet rolls ?
    https://7news.com.au/lifestyle/heal...et-paper-as-pack-on-gumtree-for-1000-c-728696

    https://thewest.com.au/news/health/...toilet-paper-from-supermarkets-ng-b881480058z

    There was even a stabbing !

    Imagine if a serious virus gets loose !

    Pandemonium !

    And the bio weapons lab in Wuhan (300 metres from the market where coved-19 emerged) probably has a few absolute snorters....

    How expensive could toilet rolls become ?

    We need perspective.

    Well, there’s something you could address, trying to do less.

    Just let it not happen.
