My spiritual life is more important than my mental, emotional or physical life

04 November

Being SpiritualThat’s a big statement. Let me explain. During my life journey I received a major signpost or ‘wake-up call’ about my spiritual health when I became seriously ill in my early 30’s.  I had to learn new ways of thinking and being – it was essential for me to be present to my experience of my self, my health and how I was going to cope with my diagnosis.

Illness has a way of snapping everything into focus. What’s important, what isn’t, what you care about and what you don’t becomes crystal clear in a new way.

I felt a disappearance of useless projections about the future and worries about the past. In that process my spiritual self emerged.

My self-awareness became magnified and I learned to cherish myself, my feelings, my thoughts as well as my values and perceptions.

I found myself feeling more gentle toward others, more respectful of their qualities and our differences. The gaps between us seemed softer and the need for judgement fell away.

I’ve noticed that most great spiritual teachers possess a certain quality of relaxed concentration in which they neither respond out of anger or fear, nor seem to cling to opinions that don’t serve them or judgements of other people. They are clear in their purpose and they are practiced at acting from their best intentions.

Truly spiritual people are free.  They allow their vital energy to move them gracefully and effortlessly through traditions, habits, techniques, and emotions.

Reaching a higher state of awareness, one realizes that our ‘consciousness is the base and form of all things’.

hen we expand our awareness of our own true nature, we increase our knowledge and awareness of everything and everyone else around us. There is true freedom is this expression of the human experience.

When you feel in sync with your spiritual self, your focus shifts, your burdens lighten and you can live fully in the moment, appreciating your life and all that surrounds you.
