It is said by some that religion and spirituality are total opposites. Historically, we were spiritual long before we found religion.
Spirituality can be described as an attachment to one’s inner soul through life and how we choose to live it. Spirituality allows us to look at a wealth of opportunities so that we can live life in its most simplest form, whereas religion is associated with the concerns of a life through faith, culture and society.
When you can accept yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually, you know you’re on the spiritual path. The spiritual path allows us to accept the things we cannot change, deal with the things we can and give of ourselves, without needing anything in return.
Spirituality isn’t something that just happens, it’s a journey of different experiences, culminating in emotional tranquillity 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 ourselves, our lives and others whilst we follow its path, and that puts us in tune with ourselves and our surroundings.
