Practical Spirituality

11 Jun

At one time or another we have all had a peak spiritual experience, whether we’ve called it that or not.  How do we sustain that inner peace?  How do we endow our relationships, our family life and our work with a spiritual spark?  How do we tap our inner resources to handle stress and overcome blocks to our creativity?  How do we make spirituality practical?

What does it mean to live a spiritual life, and what is spirituality?  The word spirit comes from the Latin spiritus, meaning “breath,” “breath of a god,” or “inspiration.”  Spirituality is to the soul what breath of life is to a newborn child.  Spirituality infuses you with life.  It gives you peace and purpose.  It empowers you to love and nourish yourself and others.  Spirituality is being able to sustain a working relationship with Spirit. It doesn’t matter whether you call that spiritual fount the Christ or the Buddha, the Tao or Brahman.  We can all get in touch—stay in touch—with the universal power of Spirit by working with that relationship.

WHO AM I?

You are a Spiritual being–a child of God clothed with human form and personality.

Hindu tradition mysteriously describes this indwelling spirit as “the inmost self, no bigger than a thumb” who “lives in the heart. ‘ Buddhists call it the Buddha nature.  Jewish mystics refer to it as neshamah.

WHY AM I HERE?

The goal for each of us is to be, right here on earth, the reflection or our Higher Self–to manifest the full potential inherent in our spiritual self.  How?  By understanding, accessing and developing the spiritual part of ourselves.  By liberating our own inner greatness so that we can fulfill our soul’s highest calling and help others do the same.

We all have moments when we feel connected with our Higher Self–when we are creative and sensitive, compassionate and caring loving and joyful.  But there are other moments when we feel out of sync with our Higher Self–moments when we become angry, depressed, lost.  What the spiritual path is all about is learning to sustain the connection to the highest part of ourselves so that we can make our greatest contribution to humanity. Use this mantra for protection and see a waterfall of dazzling white light surrounding your Higher Self.

(3x)

The ascended master El Morya, know to students of Theosophy as the master M., says our mission involves perfecting the talents that God has placed within our soul. “The purpose of life,” he says, is to find God–in yourself, in your talents, in your calling and in your sacred labor. It is to endow anything you do with Spirit.”   When we do not pursue our soul’s passion the consequences can be spiritually, emotionally and even physically devastating. Not only can it make us grouchy, but it can make us emotionally and physically ill.  “The lost soul,” writes medical intuitive Caroline Myss, “is very susceptible to illness.”  The feeling that life has lost its soul, or that our soul has lost its life, can also lead to addictions as a way to escape from reality.

DISCOVER YOUR PASSION

If you have never thought about your passion in life, answering these questions may not be easy. Just let your heart speak to you and allow the answers to come in their own time.  Ask your Higher Self to send you divine direction, and then be open to all possibilities.

1.  Am I happy with the direction of my life and with how I spend most of my time?

2.  What is my passion in life?

3.  What is the greatest talent God has given me to share with others

4.  How can I refine and perfect it?

5.  How can I use my talent to make the most outstanding contribution to my family, my community, those who need me in my circle of influence?

6.  How can I capitalize on this talent to make a living and thus devote a major percentage of my time to it?

    This is a comment to the admin. Your website is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I have found a company which offers to dramatically increase your traffic to your website: http://nsru.net/fdse They offer 1,000 free visitors during their free trial period and I managed to get over 30,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic than you have now. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.
