Spirituality is very simply a recognition of your divine self, the soul within. It’s a realization of how you are connected to all of life around you: people, animals, the earth, and the cosmos. Our bodies are made of stardust, and our consciousness or spirit is what motivates us to be, create, and love. We are spiritual beings having human experiences. We’ve come into these human forms, to consciously recognize that a divine being or intelligence exists, that God exists.
When we think of being spiritual it is focusing on the inside of life.It is peace and balance. It is being connected. It is love. It is a way of being and a way of knowing. It is feeling. It is faith. It is contentment. We are a soul. A spiritual, magnificent and beautiful soul. We are not just a physical body. We each have our own individual pathway. There is no “one size fits all.” It is the breath of life and the essence of being.
Some think that to be spiritual you have to meditate 5 hours a day, only be vegan or have a strict set of rules that you must live by. There is no book of rules and regulations for all. We make our own. It is not a religion. Spirituality is a way of life. A choice. Spirituality fuels you.
Spirituality and spiritual wellbeing. Wether you call it your higher power, Source, the Devine, your God, your soul – it is all the same. A sense in your core of knowing, understanding, support, love, and contentment. Some see ethics and morality, or theological reflection. Some it is spiritual practices. It is the propelling force in your being.
For us it is making a choice to invite calm, balance, love and positivity into your life. A choice to live with your own values, wellbeing, growth and development. It is experiences. It is a way of being, a way of knowing. It is connecting with others. Spirituality is the breath in my lungs, the passion and love and my heart and the knowing and understanding in my soul.It is discovery of self. Acknowledgement of your truth. Your desires.
Don’t be afraid to embrace your own spirituality. Be true to YOU. Explore and grow on your own quest. It is your own interpretation that matters. Listen to YOU. Be the real YOU. Experience the real YOU.
