So I find myself in the midst of chapter 9 in the guide book on life balance – the key areas of our lives that matter to us – and the exploration of how we feel about these life areas, which we want to enhance and which we want to bring into balance – and this chapter is all about spirituality!
Now before you think I am going to get all “the universe provides” on you, what this exploration is really about is our ability and capacity to create time out for reflection.
It can be religion. It can be meditation and Eastern practices such as yoga, meditation and the associated mental stillness and grounding.
It needs to come from a place of self-awareness and thoughtfulness (chapter 8!). And most of all it needs to be individualised.
Most of all it does not need to be complicated. Not in the least.
So coming from a space of awarness, dare we a very metacognitive Heather, Ms Graham has this to say on the matter:
“I feel the most spiritual when I am doing yoga or looking at an ocean. Being spiritual is feeling a connection with a higher power and knowing that life is about more than just achieving goals. It is about feeling good in the moment”.
So, what are the activities give you space to reflect, to think about your thinking, and indeed find your spirituality?
