“ Andrew is not spiritual enough for my taste.”
What is the meaning of the above?
Perhaps that Andrew does not practice a ritual or that Andrew does not have a belief system in God, Paradise, morality, etc.?
Or maybe that Andrew does not behave in a certain way because he hasn’t joined a religion?
Spirituality is none of the above and a person cannot be “less spiritual than another.”
Spirituality is about living life harmoniously to the fullest, that is flowing in life.
For that reason the name of this blog will be changed, just to reflect that new realization:
“Exploring the depth of living.” 🙂 will be its new name.
That means, that we don’t need to be “spiritual” to read this blog. 😉
Avyakt7 is free to explore and free to share what he finds. If Avyakt7 was tied up with a belief system or with a dogma, Avyakt7 wouldn’t be able to experience the freedom to fully explore and with that, the freedom to express and share.
To express in that freedom is my “art.”
To live life in harmony is the greatest art of all in my view.
The possibilities for creating newness in life are unlimited while flowing with “what is.”
If someone likes to call himself “spiritual,” then someone else may not be or may be “less than” under that view.
That is discrimination.
As this belief in the word “spirituality” gets dissolved in my psyche, then a word that unites everything appears:
We live life. They live life. There are different ways of living life… but joy in life will bring that harmony.
Some may call that joy as contentment, some others as happiness. This is an issue about finding the most adequate label to explain an experience, which paradoxically; cannot be put into words.
Living Life may be called “God” for some. Universe, Nature and Cosmos by others.
Let us not be confused by concepts and words.
If God was to be “boxed up” with a particular personality brought about by a belief, then that God will be limited by our own beliefs.
We cannot put limits to that which is unlimited.
The heart beats. Life happens. That is the same life force giving consciousness to a snake and to a flower.
The “spirit” of life is in them. That is, life is spiritual.
Innocence is a trait of childhood. As humans develop their conceptual thinking, confusion will appear and that innocence will be lost.
Religious “Spirituality” is not the “savior” which will bring light to darkness… but just a tool like a hammer or a screwdriver to show a human being that this innocence is still there.
That tool acquires different forms according to different religions, philosophies and views.
The tool is not the method to get there, but merely the “mosquito bite” which makes someone react… and look inside.
Looking inside may be the method.
Life is a teacher. Life is “spiritual” at all times and for all.
All experiences in life are meant so we could take a look “inside”… where joy resides.
