Long ago, I discovered the many benefits of spirituality in my life. It is my guiding path and a blueprint for directing the way I live my life. It keeps me on a “right” path.
Spirituality is defined in a wide variety of ways. Some include believing in a power at work in the universe that is greater than oneself… a feeling of being connected with all living creatures. There is an awareness of the purpose and meaning of one’s life. It is also often associated with religious life.
Some even define it as a process of developing very clear and defining personal values. In my situation, the benefits of spirituality are a path to finding meaning, hope, comfort, and inner peace in my life. They are most definitely intertwined with my religious life.
Acts of compassion, selflessness, charity, and the experience of inner peace are all characteristics of spirituality for me. How about you? Do you ever feel lost, with no idea where your life is headed? Do you wish you could find a sense of direction, meaning and purpose for your life?
To truly experience a rich, fulfilling life, you must connect with the dreams and aspirations that lie deep within your heart. For many, these values and hopes have been buried underneath a life of obligation, stress, and worry.
Today… thankfully, you can begin to chart a new path by looking at the hidden positive spirituality within yourself. You can discover the passion inside of you… and enjoy the truly fulfilling life you were born to live.
Discover yourself and uncover the Hidden benefits of Spirituality in Your life.
To grow spiritually is to look inward…look inside yourself. Recall those things that happened in a day, week, or month. You need to look closely and reflect on your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and motivations.
periodically examining your experiences, decisions you make, the relationships
you have, and things you engage, you will gain useful insights on your life
goals. Self-examination also gives you clues regarding how to act, react,
and conduct yourself in the midst of any situation.
Look for the hopes, dreams, and values that lie deep within you. Discover what matters most to you. When you do that, you can position your life in a way that brings meaning to you and those around you.
Just about everyone seeks the benefits of spirituality... 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 it includes having a spiritual practice to follow - an activity that connects you with God, with Creation, with neighbors and with your true self.
Perhaps you will be touched by reading an inspirational book, or moved by a poignant movie. Maybe you'll attend a religious ceremony or simply have an engaging conversation with someone.
No matter what ignites or renews interest during your spiritual journey, it is designed as a useful resource for you. It complements your personal development and can lead to personal transformation.
Following a spiritual path and taking pleasure in the walk will provide you with many benefits along the way... that you might not be aware of.
