What is Spirituality?
How do you define it?
Spirituality is a very personal thing. It has got nothing to do with masses, communities or sections of society. It has got nothing to do with mass gatherings or celebrations. It is something which exists deep inside and reflects upon our relationship with our selves. Somewhere, our spirituality defines our sense of self-awareness, because it is when we are spiritual, that we meditate and truly become mindful of our surroundings.
Are you truly living in the present?
Scientifically speaking, Mindfulness is something we need to practise every day, and how can we practise that? Meditation, Yoga, Being truly aware of the present moment, exploring nature, reading books or worshipping whichever god you believe in, that too in the simplest way possible. I am not telling you to visit the temple or make a grand celebration out of it. I am just telling you to guard the circle between you and your god.
How can you define your relationship with your own soul?
Eg:- I know that I have some good bonds, but none of these relationships can enter inside the circle of me and my god. Because it's very sacred and very personal to everyone. If I let everyone inside that circle, then my strength won't just reside on God, but it will also be partially shared with all these people, I let in. So, guard your spirituality most subtly and simply, so that faith resides within you.
Unearthing your many layers: Self Exploration:
So that you are not just a dead man walking, but you own the path you are walking and know your destination. You have to activate your senses to know what's happening, what's bothering you? And it is the virtue of spirituality, that will help you in the exploration of your self, coz when you reflect deep upon yourself, you'll realize that you were never bothered enough to check the second and third layer of answers you've been searching the whole of your life, inside yourself only. And respect all Gods and all religions equally, because all of them share the same message.
