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
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.
