It is said by some that religion and spirituality are total opposites. Historically, we were spiritual long before we found religion. Religion is associated with the concerns of a life through faith, culture and society.
Spirituality can also be described as an attachment to one’s inner soul through life and how we choose to live it. It allows us to look at a wealth of opportunities so that we can live life in its simplest form.
When you can accept yourself emotionally, physically and spiritually, you know you’re on the ‘spiritual path’. The spiritual path allows you to accept the things you cannot change, deal with the things you can and give of yourself without needing anything in return.
It’s not something that just happens, it’s a journey of different experiences, culminating in emotional tranquility and peace that comes from within, allowing us to choose how we see the world and other people. It sets us apart from others, through our attitude and how we conduct ourselves.
Spirituality helps us understand our lives and others, whilst we follow its path and that puts us in tune with ourselves and our surroundings.
