In The Spirit ~ An Introduction To Our New Post Day
Since my children are never here to contribute to their posting day, I have made the executive decision to change our Sunday post day to something I call, "In The Spirit".
This will not be a weekly religious post day. The focus on this segment will be all areas of spirituality and creating and maintaining a healthy inner self.
I've always believed that each of us needs to believe in a power higher than ourselves. That's what gives us hope, brings us back, keeps us focused on the good, teaches us to cope with the bad and guides us to be contributors to the peaceful unity of the world around us. Whatever you choose to call your higher power, we all need that one force of inspiration, separate from ourselves, to draw these things from.
One of the best definitions of spirituality, or being a spiritual person, is, "Being a spiritual person is synonymous with being a person whose highest priority is to be loving to yourself and others. A spiritual person cares about people, animals and the planet. A spiritual person knows that we are all One, and consciously attempts to honor this Oneness. A spiritual person is a kind person."
This is a difficult frame of mind to be in if someone is surrounded by negativity, has trust issues or is unable to let the past go. One of my very wise friends commented on a quote I shared a few days ago, saying, "You don't forgive for another person. They may not even deserve to be forgiven. We forgive to find peace in ourselves." This, I thought, was very empowering and a perfect example of a person who understands life as a spiritual person. We may not agree with, or may even be very against the actions of another person, but rather than let it eat us alive we choose to find a way to forgive and move on (even if we have to remove that person off of our life path) so our inner self stays strong.
There is a never-ending debate on the similarities and differences between religion and spirituality, which we aren't going to cover in this segment. We have created this day to inspire a connection to our inner self and the steps we take to make, and keep, it whole.
So, I hope you'll join me in weeks to come as we add articles, interviews, books and other resources to help all of us reach that full inner peace we all deserve. 🙏
