I want to take a moment to talk about my last post on spirituality.
I shared images that showed it in terms of religion, and the Balinese have a beautiful practice, but for me spirituality goes beyond this world and labels, religions, followings, etc
For me spirituality is knowing there is something greater than us. A power that is there all the time and has always been. It is. It exists and it always will even though as humans our flesh won't.
Spirituality is something that I became more aware of whilst travelling through South East Asia, specifically Bali. I listened to incredible meditation tracks whilst sleeping every night and morning and I would often wake up feeling my whole body vibrating. I just knew I was awakening more and more and the power of being in such a religious, sacred and magical place helped me on my journey.
However, it did overwhelm me to see such religious practices on a daily basis that I did have a bit of a hard time with. Here in the UK the most you will see regarding religion are people preaching in the street or occasionally knocking on your door to try to convert you...but in terms of seeing someone practice religion, well that's just kept for Sunday if you go to church. (my experience only, you may have a different experience)
At the time I was struggling with religion too. I still do not believe in one religion. I see similarities in them all and I am in awe that someone can be so dedicated to their religion, but I would rather be open to them all instead of choosing only one.
So to conclude, to me spirituality is knowing there is more than meets the eye. Having instant soul connections with people you just meet on the same journey and all working towards the same goal of healing mind, body and spirit (and planet!). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
