We live in a busy world in busy times, working endlessly alongside machines and other busy people. Our goal? Work. Our schedule? Work, eat, work, sleep, repeat.
It is easy to get lost in the hectic environment even beyond the walls of the office. Slowly, and we do not even recognize it, the system swallows us and we become no different to machines. We are slowly damaging our links to our spirituality because of deadlines and social media.
Amidst hectic work and the troubles of day-to-day life, there is a need to take care of ourselves. But, there is more to our body than what we can see: our mind, energy and soul, these are all part of our human spirit. The human spirit is the energy in all of us that connect us to the universe and to other people. Daily activities chip away what little grasp we have on our concept of truth and reality and before we know it we are just looking at our lives flash by before us. A good grasp on one’s spiritual self is key to a good, healthy, and happy life. Take charge of your life and become human again. Restore your humanity and see how your relationships with other people, yourself, and your wellness will drastically improve.
If you’re experiencing difficulty in reconnecting with a friend, lover or family member, or have difficulty creating or maintaining intimate relationships, these are signs that you are losing touch with your human spirit. We as human beings can form spiritual bonds with other people. This is the familiar feeling of family or best friends. These are bonds that are cultivated by very intimate and very deep interactions. With people you have spiritual bonds with, you feel safe and you belong. Your emotions match and you understand each other. If you’re not careful, everyday life tears these relationships apart. You stop being compassionate and become detached from the feeling of wanting to share or love. When people lose sight of their spirituality, taking time to connect with other people becomes less of a priority and more of a struggle. Not having a clear sense of spiritual value or direction will make it difficult to belong.
Your value on other people’s lives also becomes affected by your grasp on your own self. An indicator of poor spiritual control on oneself is breaking into bursts of negative emotion, becoming forgetful or unmindful of the things around, or having a lesser appreciation of the value of life. People who experience episodes of anxiety or depression, or people who do not feel confident or happy are often lacking in spiritual strength and are out of touch with the bigger picture. When you are not spiritual, it would appear most of the time that you do not know what you are doing. You feel as if you do not understand the circumstances that you are experiencing. Worst of all, you feel that these events are beyond your control, leading you deeper into your own demise. This situation is dangerous in today’s society, as you may not even have time to recognize and fix your situation before you plunge yourself into a new problem.
The most crucial aspect of losing touch with spirituality is its damage to health and wellness. Busy nonspiritual individuals tend to feel weak or sickly largely because of the effects of stress. Nonspiritual individuals do not take the time to position themselves in a proper environment where they are ready to respond to random circumstances and function in dynamic roles. They are often unmindful of the things that are not immediate and can easily neglect their health and wellbeing. If you often feel tired, weak, or stressed because of work or intense daily experiences, you need to respond to your body’s signals. Weakness is your body’s way of telling you to focus on your non-physical needs.
Spirituality fixes all of these issues. When we seek for the truth in human life and the universe, and constantly perform spiritual exercises, we become aware of who we are and why we must be here. When we are in touch with who we are, we also realize who we could be. Self-actualization is the key product of spiritual mastery. Spirituality trains the mind, body, and soul to participate in the greater scheme of things.
Every person can be spiritual. However, practicing spirituality is mostly an exploration and each person will have different feelings on which activities are spiritual experiences. However, there are various established ways to express spirituality, which will be covered frequently in this blog. For example, there are various types of meditation and prayer that allow individuals to focus their attention to themselves. The body is involved in a similar fashion through the various forms of yoga. Lastly, mindfulness is a state of thought that allows individuals to fundamentally grasp everything that is going on at a given moment. These are various forms of spiritual exercises which transform a person from merely being a vessel of a spirit to an active fragment of the universe.
In our blog, explore all of these spiritual exercises, spiritual tips, and discussions and become a better and more complete human being. Explore yourself and what more your life could become today.
