Today I decided to be more conscious and deliberate with my spiritual life. I now intend to lead my life – more consistently – in a spiritual manner. One method I’m taking advantage of – in the aim of my pursuit – is daily meditation.
Meditation affords me the opportunity to be more directly in touch with my “vibe.” The energy or emotional mood that I’m expressing at any given moment is controllable. The first step is to be aware of it. It’s easier to recognize when we are “in a state” or are feeling “terribly moody.” Others will typically let us know. But when we’re somewhat more in control and even keel, what then? This is where we live the majority of life and this is where our “vibe” counts the most.
I close my eyes and assume a meditative mind. My intention is to hear and feel my spiritual connection. To connect, spiritually, to love, to gentleness, and with the ultimate source of power. Spirituality, like life, is powerful and pervasive. We cannot control either, nor should we try. But we can control our “vibe through a spiritual meditation.”
I love gardening and I use it as a metaphor. Also, I can look out of my window and see the trees in my back yard – for instance – relying on light from the sun (consciousness). I cannot see, but I understand that trees also have an enormous root system below the level of awareness that also relies upon water and nutrients from the ground (like our subconscious or spiritual reality). Generally, the garden is a calm and peaceful place, since it is part of nature or the “universal mind.”
“Life is growing, evolving, and improving, naturally. Like nature, we too, have a natural beauty and style of our own. Don’t stress. Don’t lead with greed or lust for life. Let yourself move gracefully. This is rhythm well tuned.” Richard W. Anton
Do you consider yourself to be part of a spiritual system with a universal plan? Spirituality evolves as we journey on the path of life. So, travel well. Live well. To live our lives well, I mean that we must grow and evolve on our journey. Allow life to shape us and become all that we can become.
We must learn from our mistakes and pursue our success. Learn about ourselves and change, through our current life experiences. Evolve or mature, intrapersonally, in the mind. Yet, we also grow and evolve between or with others, our interpersonal life. And there are many spiritual disciplines available to us that guide our journeys. What are your spiritual practices?
We all have thoughts and beliefs about just about everything in life. More specifically, our psychological processes reflect our faith or spiritual beliefs. Hopefully our practices, too. They provide meaning about the situations we wake up to every day. We have our usual thoughts and behaviors. And we have potential thoughts and behaviors related to our spiritual journey.
Our journey is full of capabilities that creatively combine to create the kind of life we believe is worth living. The experience that we produce every day is guided by and reflects our inner life. Our beliefs, values, and even how we care for ourselves emotionally creates our identity, and our identity gives rise to our future — what we spend most of our time thinking about. Hopefully, the future matters most, to us.
Feel Flow in Life
Ancient texts have referred to “saving yourself.” Philosophers such as Aristotle and Plato were concerned with “virtue,” “morality,” and “reasonable thought.” In the last century, Psychologists have applied practical application to “emotional healing” and “recovery,” in the form of counseling or therapy. We often talk about aligning our personal goals with the “flow of life.”
Spirituality develops with attention, awareness, and implementation, resulting in our becoming our best, at home and work. To make this happen, and to feel the flow of life requires energy, effort, and guidance. For that reason, consider acquiring support for yourself.
At this precise moment, people around the planet are holding to their spiritual paths. We are grasping onto a strong desire. We are clutching at a deep expectation, to feel in the “flow” of life. To experience this flow, we need to live out the “best version” of ourselves. We need to perform and experience life at it’s highest levels – levels of “peak performance.” We can’t do this alone. Above all else, the process implies ongoing consultation.
There are two types of learning. We can learn algebra and accounting, coding, and memorize medications. That’s definitely going to take learning. The other type focuses on our inner experiences. We learn about life and about ourselves. This often means learning through hard knocks. Psychology provides us with a less painless means.
How Can I Find A Way to Express Myself Through You?
What if the purpose of life is not only to find someone. To marry. But to begin and maintain profound cooperation with each other. To not only accept where each of us differs, but to embrace those differences now, before it’s too late. What if when we die, if we were lucky enough to bond with someone, that in a sense we are reborn once again but this time the two of us are born as one single bodily person?
Spirituality is – ultimately – about practicing our faith. Chiefly, a faith in a power higher than ourselves, and faith in ourselves. Practice having faith that you can do it. Believe that if you apply yourself – and express what’s best about yourself – life will turn around for you. It will save you, liberate you, and bring life to your dreams. I, for one, sincerely believe, that we can experience self-confidence, happiness, and great relationships. Discover the details for yourself.
The purpose of life
I believe that we’re here to grow, and to grow and evolve we must experience life for ourselves. We choose our life every day, moment by moment. Let’s choose wisely.
