> Who or what do you need to help make sense of – or to experience – ‘the spiritual’ in your life?
For many centuries various religions have provided organisational structures to help followers understand and practice their spirituality – from churches and pews, to rules for everything from patterns of prayer to dress and diet.
But what if you do not follow a particular religion or are trying to develop a spiritual path that makes sense to you? Do you still need these orders and structures and ‘ways of doing’?
And if so, what orders and structures do you use?
In the words of one of our bloggers:
‘spirituality…is a letting go of everything.
And in this state of having let go,
peace, happiness, openness and wonder well up…
Inevitably we bring with us to this state
our own background and experience,
and this influences how we accept the new realization.
Angels, gods, spirits, Wicca,
whatever helps to put it all into context.
Great spiritual thinkers
like the Buddha, Christ, Lao Tsu can help us,
but we must each find our own way.’
How do you find your way?
