It’s understanding that I’ve been living with blinders on until now! 😄
What does spirituality mean?
Here is my definition of spirituality: it is everything that science does not yet explain.
It is the belief that I am more than a physical body: also a spirit and a Soul.
In this sense, religion is spiritual. However, I distinguish between religion and spirituality:
- Religion is usually the belief in a God or gods, greater than myself.
- In spirituality, I am united with everything, and everything is one: therefore I am God, just like my neighbor or the butterfly that passes by.
Why is spirituality important?
Spirituality as I understand it has always existed. Ancient civilizations knew about life after death and incarnation, and knew how to communicate with the subtle worlds.
Today, it is finding a new rise.
If in the past, only certain people were spiritual, such as priests and shamans. Today it is a worldwide movement.
A generalized awareness is underway: we speak of spiritual awakening.
What is spiritual awakening?
When I am incarnated on Earth, I forget who I really am. This is part of the experience. So naturally, I identify myself with my body and my thoughts.
Existence can seem like a succession of events without logic. But there is no such thing as chance, everything happens for a reason.
My Soul decides on a plan with events to be lived: it is the path of life, on which I can blossom.
However, I still have my free will, which allows me to freely decide what I want to do.
If I grasp this, then I can take responsibility for what happens to me, and become the creator of my life.
Why should I be spiritual?
I don’t have to be spiritual to be fashionable, and show others that I am not superficial.
I can realize that I am only a drop in the ocean, but that I am connected to the whole ocean.
By opening myself to spirituality, I gradually find my essence. I distinguish myself from the character created by the ego and based on my fears.
I understand that life is only an experience, among a multitude of others that my Soul has chosen to experiment.
I discover that I am a being of light, divine, multidimensional and eternal.
I become aware that love is the main force of the Universe, which governs everything.
What is the purpose of spirituality?
There is no such thing.
I can be curious, but I don’t need to understand everything.
What is important is what I experience, not the goal.
When I open myself to the invisible, my life takes on a new dimension.
Spirituality allows me to get answers to the following questions:
- What am I doing here?
- What is the meaning of my life?
- Are we alone in the universe?
How to become spiritual?
There are many simple ways to awaken my spirituality:
- Listen to my heart rather than my brain.
- Connect with nature.
- Accepting the emotional memories that prevent me from being myself.
- Living in the present moment, not in the past or future.
- Put love into everything I do.
- Be in full awareness.
Example: When I contemplate the stars, I feel that there are other worlds, that I am connected to the Universe, and that I am not there by chance.
What is spirituality?
It is a worldview that explores the relationship between the human and the immaterial.
The spiritual life allows me to become a creator, rather than a victim of external circumstances.
