Webster’s Dictionary states that “spiritual” has to do
with the spirit or the soul, as opposed to material things.
Webster is a great source, but, we have to look within
ourselves to find the deeper meanings of what spirituality is. And of course,
we will all end up with different definitions of what spirituality means for
No matter what tradition we look to, though, every teacher and scripture says
something about the importance of being present. No matter what creed or
religion, no matter the era one lives in, spirit resides in the now. Today,
being spiritual begins with accepting the world as it is.
The world is crazy, fast, polluted, always filled with wars, overpopulated...I
could go on with the list of what people often complain about, yet the point is
that all of these
so-called “con’s” are real parts of the world we live in.
Acceptance, or “loving what is,” being “spiritual” and
present, means we must start from here.
This week, when you find yourself thinking and worrying
about the past and the future and getting all worked up, bring yourself back to
the present and "be present" and thankful for where you are...this is
where you are supposed to be.
Many Blessings To All
