How’s Your Spirit?
Probably someone has asked you, “So, how are your spirits”, right? But what does that mean? Are we only talking about your mood? What do spirits have to do with me, anyway?
Spirit can mean different things to different people. Usually it is something that we don’t see or touch, its a sense of something that exists within us, maybe the “alive” part of us. For lots of people, being spiritual means observing rituals, studying religious texts and attending regular services. For others, it might be about the energy that flows in us which helps guide and motivate us.
Perhaps a simple way of defining spirituality is anything you consider meaningful and special. Whether you find it in God, in people, in nature, or in art, it can be a place of lightness and release from every day pressures and pains.
Get to know your spiritual side. It’ll give you a:
reassuring belief that you don’t have to know how to control everything
sense of purpose and meaning
feeling that you are part of something bigger than yourself
way to understand suffering
connection with others
reminder of the good in the world
