Spiritual

I’ve been spiritual for as long as I can remember, even though I didn’t grow up with a particular belief practice. While we did do a few things along Christian beliefs, I took to new age beliefs in my adolescence. While at first, I used them as a fascination, I’ve spent many years digesting new age beliefs and spirituality to form my own practice.

The Spiritual DoorwayWhat is spirituality?

I think many see spirituality as belief in a higher power, superstitions or something specifically about spirits as an object. However, I think the answer to this question starts with answering the question “what are spiritual needs?” The answer I come up with to that question is that our main spiritual need is to have a relationship with life itself. In a sense, it is answering the question around what the purpose of life is. However we answer that question, or whatever kind of relationship we have with life itself, as if it were a person to interact with, that becomes the basis for our own spirituality.

Mindfulness for truth

I practice mindfulness as much as possible. That includes noticing my thoughts and feelings all day, every day, to make sure I know why I think and feel the way I do. This requires dedication to the truth of my experience as well as the truth of others’ experiences. I love scientific inquiry and objective study of humanity for the insights they bring to how things work. It is important to pursue these methods of study to become more than we are today.

Acceptance for love

If you wonder what life’s purpose is from my view, I say that life’s purpose is to teach acceptance. We don’t have to accept everything that exists, but there are many ways we resist life, resist the truth just because we don’t like what there is. Death, for example, feels like a bad thing no matter the circumstances, but when we truly understand its role, we are able to grieve with appreciation for the role death has as a natural experience.

Growth for serenity

I use the serenity prayer as my guiding principle to balance making an effort to change things with accepting how life is designed. As a result, I realized we are always growing, and there will never be an end to that growth. Our openness to life’s experiences bring the best possible hope for continual peace and joy, and we grow best from more experience rather than less. If ones goal is to avoid problems, then one is hopelessly lost in a sea of disappointment. On the other hand, if ones goal is to grow from every challenge and trial, then one has the best possible chance at finding true happiness in life.

The Hermit Card from the Tarot deckResonance, the key to connection

Along with these ideals, I also believe in a resonant connection among all things. This underpins my study and practice of Tarot, numerology, astrology and chakras. Resonance includes things like intention, creative visualization, laws of attraction and concepts like, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
