Definition of spiritual....."relating to or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things".
When we talk about being spiritual, the majority of people think you are either religious or a psychic. But this isn't the case.
As the definition describes, to be Spiritual is having a heart. If you see a child being bullied, or an old man struggling in the street, or a beautiful tree being cut down and you are moved by it, then you are spiritual. In fact you have to be a very hard person not to be moved by others demise or by the destruction of nature. So probably 99% of the worlds population are "spiritual".
But people seem to forget this. They act as spiritual people "when it suits them".If you are not a nature lover, then chopping down trees that help us breath, isn't going to bother you.
Destroying another park to build a high rise building, isn't going to bother you. When was the last time you stopped what you were doing, just for a moment and had a look around? When was the last time you looked up instead of looking down?
What would happen if we all paid more attention to our "spiritual side", what would the world be like? Would it make for a better world? A better life? We would still have our own everyday problems, bills to pay and stresses, but maybe, just maybe we would learn how to cope better, to worry less, to help more often, and to love and care more. Maybe, just maybe the world would become a more stable economy, famine and lack of water, a thing of the past, struggling, a thing of the past, people would live longer, and ailments would subside. Maybe, just maybe............
Isn't it worth trying? After all, we are all spiritual, and if we listened to this side of us more, you just might experience an easier life x
