Living spiritually is not only a philosophy by which some choose to live; it is in fact, a way of being; an understanding that each of us is unique with our own unique journey. Our greatest gift within this life is to be present, authentic and to be aware … notice what calls to us … then be prepared to listen, and have the courage to allow yourself the gift of spiritual growth.
It is an awakening that calls to us as our path begins to broaden and we become aware that we are being asked to open to something more than what has been … to become more creative and to broaden all the definitions of what that is.
It calls to us in spite of the presence of fear and uncertainty. The reality is that when we embark on our true or authentic path, it becomes important to understand that fear will be a present and perhaps constant companion and it is to be an expectation not a hindrance. To know fear is to understand that we are not working with a negative issue, but working toward something that has integrity and the ability to allow us understanding in our growth. It is about stepping out of your comfort zone, refusing to accept the status quo society sets and finding our free spirit and liberating the soul.
The intention is simple; all we truly need to do in this process is Trust, Have Faith and then Allow … for all and everything has a reason, a purpose and it connects us to this “thing”, this “journey” we call “Life”.
Each of us has a story that is called, “A Life” … written long before we incarnated, and long before we began our journey as physical beings. We crafted in such a fashion as to allow our most desired and heartfelt dreams to become and be our reality.
In this series of classes we will begin to unravel the mysteries of “Us”, who we are - our authentic self; discover our spirit and our spirituality; connect with our dreams, our wishes and the many layers, the many twists and turns that will lead us forward, deeper within ourselves and then all around us until we recognize the patterns and the synchronicities that exist within our lives that are far from being random.
The Definition of Spirituality:
Spirituality is a belief in an ultimate or an alleged immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his/her 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. Spiritual experiences can include being connected to a larger reality, yielding a more comprehensive self; joining with other individuals or the human community; with nature or the cosmos; or with the divine realm. Spirituality is often experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. ~ Wikipedia
