Welcome to my new blog about our spiritual journeys. I will share my experiences with you and I look forward to reading about the path that you are on.
For many people, including myself, spirituality is not religious but more of a connection to a higher self. Spirituality is defined on Wikipedia as:
Spirituality can refer to an ultimate or an alleged immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of their being; or the “deepest values and meanings by which people live.” Spiritual practices, including meditation, prayer and contemplation, are intended to develop an individual’s inner life; such practices are alleged to lead to an experience of connectedness with a larger reality, yielding a more comprehensive self; with other individuals or the human community; with nature or the cosmos; or with the divine realm. For some, spirituality is experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. It can encompass belief in immaterial realities or experiences of the immanent or transcendent nature of the world.
Prayer and meditation lead me to a connection with a higher being and this is where I find inner strength and peace. No matter what word you use; higher being, God, higher power or creator, spirituality begins with the belief that an “ultimate being” is always at your side.
