How Practicing Mindfulness will Enhance Your Spiritual Life
I believe connecting spirituality is easier than most people think and can be explored by using a process called Mindfulness. I argue that in this historical period we are discovering the realities of an authentic Spiritual Experience as never before.
Here is what is important to know:
Proving to yourself that spirituality is real is a matter of suspending your skepticism for a moment while you seek it. The human world is designed to exclude such spiritual explorations by keeping our focus on work, play, and other matters, so we won’t think about not living forever. Such diversions constantly pull at us to dive into a busy life. We even tell ourselves that questions about spirituality are “unknowable” anyway.
However, when we begin to suspend such cultural skepticism, even for a moment, we break free into the quiet space of genuine openness.
In this space, we can begin to contemplate and actually perceive what explorers through the ages have experienced when they have pursued a Spiritual Life.
This moment is one of breaking out from the delusions of the world. In a real sense, we WAKE UP!
Mindfulness: How To Get Started
A key factor is making the time to sit by yourself every day. Seek solitude and Mindfulness because it is in this quietness that all the deep proofs of spirituality can be witnessed,
If you are going through something difficult, it can be very hard to be alone. There is a natural tendency to use all kinds of different defense mechanisms to deflect the pain you’re feeling. The truth is one of the most important things you can do for yourself is to make time to be in a quiet place for at least a few minutes every day. Real peace and healing, like the scripture of all religions promise, can only be discovered when you clear your mind. We must sharpen our minds to go after this peace and find it.
