Finding personal spirituality may be easier than you think. Begin by looking inward…simply look inside yourself. Recall those things that happened in a day, week, or month. Look closely and reflect on your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and motivations.
Your spiritual growth involves examining your experiences, decisions you make, the relationships you have, and things you engage. This can also help you gain useful insights on your life goals. You will likely uncover some signs of those good traits you should keep, and any along with the bad traits you will need to discard.
Your personal spirituality can offer up clues regarding how to act, react, and conduct yourself in the midst of any situation. As with any skill, spiritual examination can be learned. It merely requires the courage and willingness to earnestly look for the truths that lie inside you.
Discover the hopes, dreams, and values that lie deep within you. Discover what matters most to you. Once you do that, you can position your life in a way that brings meaning to you and those around you.
Just about everyone seeks spiritual direction. It starts on a path that is personal to them. Perhaps your spiritual path takes you along some of the routes we’ve looked at here. Maybe that includes having a spiritual practice to follow-- an activity that connects you with God, with Creation, with neighbors and with your true self.
You might encounter a spiritual moment anywhere, any place or any time. Perhaps you will be touched while reading an inspirational book, or moved by a poignant movie. Maybe you will attend a religious ceremony or simply have an engaging conversation with someone.
No matter what ignites or renews some interest during your spiritual journey, it is designed to be a useful resource for you. It complements your personal development and can lead to personal transformation.
Following the path and relishing in the practice will provide you with many benefits of spirituality that you might not be aware of.
