Spirituality and happiness

Updated on May 6, 2016

It is said that we are spiritual beings with human experiences not the other way round. Spirituality is the source of our motivation and inspiration. It is the reference from which we derive our perspective towards everything and everybody. It is the root of our value system and principles by which we live. People practice spirituality differently. Everyone finds renewal and solace in a specific practice or ritual.

Some people renew their spiritual dimension by praying on a daily basis and living by the teachings of a specific religion. Others get in touch with their souls by taking time each day to practice silence and meditation. Meditation has been proven scientifically to be an effective tool in fighting stress and achieving the clarity and peace of mind. There are others who renew their spiritual dimension by communing with nature. We came from nature, in it we should seek solace and to it we shall return. If you take time to leave the chaos and noise of the city behind and make for a quiet place where you will be able to enjoy the beauty of sunset and hear the chirping of birds, or watch and listen to the flowing water of a river, you will undoubtedly come back refreshed and full of energy.

Allotting some time daily to invest in our spirituality is worthwhile as it represents the backbone of our existence. However, practicing religion or any spiritual practice shouldn’t be done in a mechanical way as it is the case with the majority of people. They pray and recite the scriptures mechanically instead of considering it as an outlet to release their stresses and receive positive energies.

      Well done. I was struck by your concept of people doing one way or another. There are indeed some of us that do many ways. There is good in many things and on each of those we should take the best.

      "We came from nature, in it we should seek solace and to it we shall return." - Wise words although many people see themselves above Nature. Like the people trying to stop the Oceans from advancing on "their land". The nonsense that Humans do is mind-boggling sometimes.

      We are indeed Spirit incarnate, not Humans with a Spirit lol

      Cheers for a thoughtful piece of writing! : )
