How Are You Spiritual?

I believe that we are each spiritual in our own way. Being spiritual doesn’t have to mean that we’re all religious. Spirituality can simply mean that we know how to find the good stuff in life – contentment, happiness, peace. In the US, spirituality tends to have a negative connotation, but I don’t think it has to. I think it can simply mean – “trying to live a good life” and “looking for meaning in life.”

Do you agree with me about spirituality? I know plenty of spiritual people who aren’t religious as well as religious folks who aren’t spiritual. And of course, people who are both or aren’t neither. Spirituality is more a state of mind or life philosophy than a particular belief. At least, that’s my opinion πŸ™‚

I do consider myself a spiritual, although not necessarily religious, person. For me, spirituality means taking the time to reflect on this world and my place in it. I also think gratitude and kindness are important aspects of being spiritual. Besides trying to have spiritual thinking practices, I have activities I consider spiritual – such as meditation, yoga, going for walks, and working in my garden.

    Your Spiritual Style is Active and Powerful – mostly accurate (great quiz!)

    You are bold, adventurous, and even brazen. You feel like the world is your oyster.
    You are pioneering and an outside the box thinker. You believe in possibilities.

    You believe in fighting for what’s right. You get fired up from all the injustices you see.
    You are a problem solver. You want to fix everything that’s broken in this world.

    Your Spiritual Style is Seeking and Growing

    You spend a lot of time trying to figure out the world and yourself. You seek peace, truth, and enlightenment.
    Your thoughts tend to be innovative and cutting edge, though many people don’t understand them.

    You have no desire to lead or follow anyone. You’re on your own awesome solo journey.
    You are a rule breaker but not a rule maker. You are at your best when you’re unrestricted.

    Seems like me.

    Amen, lol πŸ˜‰

    I’m also amused that so many of these quizzes describe me as a “rule breaker” because I tend to be the opposite…perhaps you know something I don’t πŸ˜‰

      That’s really funny! One of my dream Blogthings features is to count up the number of traits someone gets over a variety of quizzes. Sort of like a meta personality profile. Anyway, very cool that you noticed rule breaker come up a bunch… even if you’re not sure it applies πŸ™‚

    I wish I had more time to be as active as I’d like to be. :\

    “You are bold, adventurous, and even brazen. You feel like the world is your oyster.

    I am trying to be an outside the box thinker, as I’ve mentioned before. Though it’s my belief that outside the box thinking is the antithesis of logical thinking, which is what I tend to do. And, yes, I definitely believe in possibilities.

    “You believe in fighting for what’s right. You get fired up from all the injustices you see.”

    I do get upset from injustices, but I’m not much of a fighter.

    “You are a problem solver. You want to fix everything that’s broken in this world.”

    Of course, but you can say that about any engineer.

      I love how you tell us your results from your own quiz. πŸ™‚
      If you have some time, I’d like to also hear your opinion on your results, or maybe a silly anecdote.
      I guess I’m just fascinated by people. I like people-watching at the park, and I’m a bit of an armchair psychologist haha.

        That’s a great idea! I never think anyone wants to know about me, but I always want to know about everyone else. I’ll try to add a bit more in πŸ™‚

          That’d be great! I like reading yours and everyone else’s results and opinions. I don’t often reply, because I don’t feel I have anything interesting to add, but that doesn’t mean that myself and I’m sure many others don’t like to see what everyone else is thinking. πŸ™‚
