Simply give up trying to be spiritual.
Just be your most authentic self.
Spirit is what you already are and what you will always be, nothing can take away from that reality. It’s your true nature.
We sometimes think that being spiritual means reciting holy texts…
Wearing certain kinds of clothes…
Only eating a certain kind of food…
Doing difficult yoga postures…
Spirituality is not simply in the form. But really in the formless.
It’s not about the clothes you wear.. Or don’t. Or what it looks like on the surface. All external things are constantly changing. They all come and go as part of the impermanence of life. All forms change and holding onto them will only lead to suffering.
What is important is your inner connection to the unchanging consciousness within you, that is you. It’s about where your attention is inside yourself as you take action on the outside.
Spirituality is not simply something that you DO. Acting spiritual doesn’t make you spiritual. It’s what you BE…
When you connect with your real Self and live from that depth of your being, you transform everything that you come into contact with.
As you connect to your real self, you connect to the source of life itself. You become powerful and no longer dependent on the outside world for validation.
To be spiritual is not just to love some outside force but to love and accept yourself exactly as you are and as you aren’t. Your light and your dark.
As you love yourself unconditionally, a beautiful freedom and peace opens up within you.
So being spiritual is not just a special thing that you do in church on Sunday.
Or simply on your yoga mat for an hour or two.
Or in the Himalayas whilst you meditate in silence.
Spiritual is how you live your life in each moment.
It’s in how you treat yourself, your parents, your co-workers, the person in traffic, even those you don’t like and those that piss you off the most.
Every single second of your life is an opportunity to practice your spirituality in life.
Everyone is an opportunity, and every experience an invitation to live it.
There is no separation between your “regular” life and your spiritual life.
There are no special moments because every moment you are alive is sacred and special.
Then you begin to live your spirituality in the midst of the busyness of your everyday life. You no longer have to escape your life but enter into your life as a powerful meditation.
As you know who you are and place your attention on gratitude and love, you then transform each moment. Then as you make love, wash the dishes, cook dinner, spend time with your kids, drive to work, talk on the phone, it all becomes a sacred act.
Life is the ultimate spiritual practice.
It gives you the opportunity to live your prayers, and dare to embody love as a living reality amidst all of life’s challenges. It can be quite difficult at moments but each time you open your heart and love, you expand.
Every challenge that you face gives you the opportunity to develop your spiritual muscle and strengthen your capacity to love.
Everyone is your guru and teacher reflecting to you what you need to see within yourself.
What’s the point in chanting sacred sutras, doing difficult yoga poses, raising your kundalini, if you fail to love the incarnation of the Divine right in front of you in the form of your spouse, in-laws, kids, co-workers and friends.
To love fully in every moment is the most powerful prayer you can offer.
Every time you are bold enough to love, you grow wings to fly.
Love is spirituality In action.
Are you loving fully?
