Often times I find it a bit difficult to describe spirituality. It can be so easily misunderstood. We each have our own perception, understanding of what it is-or isn’t. It somehow can get tangled up with Faith or Religion and some lines can get blurred.
It is such a personal experience. A deep one. Can we truly express what moves us so completely?
For me it’s being in nature. I marvel at the majesty of it all. I can never seem to get enough of it. It grounds me and yet it can also uplift me. It centers me and yet brings my imagination to places I hadn’t thought possible. It makes me smile yet brings me to tears at the brilliant and perfection of it all. There is no way than I –or anyone- can come close to duplicating it – not in its true essence anyway. The magnitude of its beauty and splendor are really more than I can put in to word and often feelings are too much to handle. The love that I feel when I’m connected to nature is so pure and profound that it is euphoric!
Our truest connection to ourselves and others lies in our ability to both give and receive LOVE. Pure love, not lust has many forms and provides many lessons. We have the opportunity to be with it and dance with it many times in our lives from birth until death. It has been said millions of times throughout the centuries: “LOVE is all you need.” So profound. So simple. So true.
Although we each experience our spirituality individually and alone – it somehow has a magical, mystical aspect to it by allowing us to share and connect with others through it. That connection makes it stronger and reinforces it –like a strong foundation with which to build a solid structure – a great rewarding and fulfilling life. Out connections to it and thru it enrich and enliven us to be our best selves and helps us to support and encourage others to their greatest potential.
Brene Brown describes it as: “Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning and purpose to our lives.”
What a beautiful and thought provoking description.
How would you describe YOUR spirituality? Is it seen? Felt? Shared? When did you first experience it? How do you celebrate it?
