Spirituality - The Common Thread

What is Spirituality ?

Spirituality is an essential component of good health as it is the underlying reality, the common fabric which we are all made of.

It is not about belief as even if one does not believe in spirituality, it still is and remains. It is not specifically about religion as spirituality is not limited to one particular religion or religious perception.

Spirituality is essential to our health and our life. It flows out of Eternity and we are constantly within it since we cannot be without it. Thus it is what we are and what we are really made of. The interconnectedness with all that flows from the Source of everything.

Spirituality is the way you find meaning, hope, comfort and inner peace in your life. Many people find spirituality through religion. Some find it through music, art or a connection with nature. Others find it in their values and principles. Spirituality encompasses all of the above and a lot more. There are as many perceptions as there are people and that is part of spiritual growth. The key is to pay attention to spirituality as it is your connection to Eternity and thus Perfection. By striving to understand your spiritual nature you not only grow as a person but you also help others do the same.

If you swing in harmony with the principles of spirituality then harmony and balance will exist in your body as well.

How can I improve my spiritual health?

If you want to improve your spiritual health, you may want to try the following ideas. However, remember that everyone is different, so what works for others may not work for you. Do what is comfortable for you.

  • Identify the things in your life that give you a sense of inner peace, comfort, strength, love and connection.

  • Set aside time every day to do the things that help you spiritually. These may include doing community service or volunteer work, praying, meditating, singing devotional songs, reading inspirational books, taking nature walks, having quiet time for thinking, doing yoga, playing a sport or attending religious services.

  • Keep reflecting on the fundamental questions of life and be open to receiving answers even if they do not necessarily fit with your present perceptions and even if they come from an unexpected source.

  • Welcome change as an opportunity for growth and expanded horizons.

  • Pay attention to your inner voice so it is not muffled by external influences.

  • Be aware that your own perceptions can act as a filter, preventing critical information from reaching you, until you decide to let it in.

  • Be yourself for yourself. The same person in everything you do.

  • Finally remember that if you keep doing the same thing, you should not expect a different result.
