Connect With Your Inner Spirit
"Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force - that thoughts rule the world."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Current uses of the word spirituality differ greatly. Some describe it as a search to “know who you are,” to understand the “meaning of life,” and to find ways of reducing suffering, getting along with others and having a sense of “inner peace” and happiness. It seems generally to involve ethical or moral guides for behavior, beliefs about the nature of consciousness (and what happens to consciousness after death), and some clues about a path to contentment. The word “spirit” comes from the Latin spiritus and is related to the verb spirare which means “to breathe.” Thus, when we use the words spiritual or spirituality in a literal sense, we are really referring to the very essence of what it means to be alive. Our breath is the unifying link between our mind, body, and emotions. It is also what connects us to one another.
