The Power of Spirituality

The Power of Spirituality

Spirituality: noun. ~the state or quality of being dedicated to God, religion, or spiritual things or values, esp as contrasted with material or temporal ones.

Spirituality IS different from religion. Religion is an organized way to demonstrate your beliefs or spirituality. Spirituality is something much deeper and profound. You don't have to believe in God to be spiritual. Sometimes people automatically think that spirituality automatically means religion...and can be a very sensitive topic. I find that even individuals who espouse being agnostic or atheist still possess spirituality within themselves and their belief in others.

How does spirituality benefit one's mental and emotional well-being? It can be a very powerful piece to finding joy and purpose in life. It can be something as basic as believing in your surroundings (nature) and as complicated as believing in an afterlife and a higher being. Having a difficult time figuring out your specific beliefs? Try making a list of your own morals...what values do you hold? What is the positive and greater good that you find in life? These all fulfill your spirituality.

People swear by their spirituality to get them through the best and worst of times. It helps those who are in trouble and in pain to find solace in their efforts. It helps you move forward. Looking into the present and future, instead of the past, is a very integral part of believing in yourself and those that surround you. If you are struggling with something, it can help pull you out of the deepest of funks. And again, I can't stress enough, that it doesn't mean you have to be religious. One's spirituality is unique. It is something you hold within you. Find your spirituality, define it, and live by it.

Mr. Chandler, thank you for this post. What follows is the coenmmt I posted at Christine Sine's site:I’m very glad to have found this blog (via Google Alerts). I think creativity is basic to being human and enables us to access our humanity. Mike Crowl, I agree with you about the Jesus stamp. But it has always struck me that one of the primary teachings of Jesus is that we should develop our talents, no matter how small our achievement might be.I honestly, fully believe that people engaging in the rigors of creativity is how Christ intends to save the world.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many
thanks
