The feeling of things being out of control has hit a lot of people with what is going on in the world.

Jessica McGregor Johnson spent four years working and living in an ashram, an Indian spiritual retreat. She emerged ready to begin a completely new life having studied and lived spiritual principles such as being real, living in the present moment and having patience. But putting the principles she had learnt in the confines of the ashram into the reality of everyday life would be a major challenge.

Jessica McGregor Johnson: “I was trying to work out how to live these principles within my everyday life at the same time as everything seemingly was going haywire. I had too much stress all at once: I had come out of the ashram, moved to a new country and had a new partner. I literally wrote myself out of a hole.”

Remembering Perfection deals with how to use contemplation, and how to have compassion and send blessings, not judgement. “We have free will with regards to our attitude to what is happening around us,” Jessica explains. “The feeling of things being out of control has hit a lot of people with what is going on in the world. People ask me how they can possibly live with this spiritual focus when their livelihood and in some cases their family's happiness seems threatened. I explain the importance of where our focus is and how practising gratitude and looking for the gift in every situation can help us handle challenging situations with more confidence."

Jessica shares her personal experiences in Remembering Perfection, a practical guide of how to embody spiritual principles to achieve a happier and more fulfilled life.

“Self-honesty is the first step,” she says. “I realised that rather on focusing on all that was wrong, I could use all that I had learnt in the ashram and help myself by creating a balanced mental state, no matter what was happening in my life .”
