What is Spirituality?
Spirituality is how you understand your place in, and your relationship to the world around you and your own inner world. It can be defined and expressed in a wide range of ways. This can be individual or be a shared experience through a group, an organisation, a religion, practice or a culture.
Spirituality create a sense of wholeness, identity and wellbeing. It’s about how you relate, think and feel about life and its challenges, how you approach life, about your actions and having love for others and yourself.
It is much more than this simple explanation and as it is a personal thing – everyone expresses their spirituality differently.
We are a vast universe of possibilities and when we open to it, allow the unfolding, we are no longer limited to what we have, nor even what we don’t have, what we have become or want to become. We can change!
Choice is a great gift of human consciousness, we can choose to be free from the shackles we put on ourselves.
Freedom is like a bird flying in the vastness sky – no limitations, only open space in every direction. So it is with us, we always have choice, choice in every direction, if only peel back the veil, remove the blinkers from our eyes and stop dancing around the outside of the circle, caught on the periphery of our lives.
There comes a time when we dive right into the centre of the circle of ourselves, find our wings and truly fly. We find the being we truly want to be and live the life our heart most desires. Our possibilities become limitless, our ideas possible, our future imaginable, our world universal, because we not only are deeply connected within ourselves, we are deeply connected to the whole.
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty.” Albert Einstein
