What does spirituality mean? Is it something which left me feel like I’m ancient or it is something related to a conservative society or I simply want to work my mind in a psychological path. None of these are my answers. Everyone has their own way of thinking and a particular way to do spiritual habits. Mine is simple yet powerful but you might have your own. So in today’s post I’m sharing my everyday spiritual routine with you all.
Spirituality can be defined as a path of connection to something higher than ourselves.There are so many ways to perform spiritualism. Some find it in monotheistic religion, some find it in meditation or again some find it in believing supremacy. There are something which is untouched and unseen but it helps us to stay in positive path.
Although the understanding of spirituality differs across regions, religions, belief systems and most importantly by the purpose in life. Let me clear you something first, religion and spirituality are not the same concept though we often imbricate the plates. Spirituality has a much broader platform to understand as an individual’s connection with the transcendent aspects of life.
In a verse of a panegyric of Sri Sankaracharya, “Impossible it is to describe the transcending greatness of the great soul who uprooted lust, the great enemy of spiritual progress, even from the hearts of his disciples, who shattered to pieces the great obstacle of anger and who dug out as easily as grass all defects like greed and other evil traps of the human heart.”
Let’s come to my spirituality routine. I’m Hindu so just after waking up in the morning and freshen up I do spend around 30 minutes with my believes when I do some rituals, chant some mantras, decorate my prayer area with flowers and spend a peaceful 30 minutes at the starting of the day. It fuels up my mind and soul which gives me so much positivity throughout the day. Then in evening I do meditations for 15 minutes and spend around 10 minutes in my prayer area again. It gives me enormous confidence, positivity and makes my mind and soul clear like water.
There are so many versions of spiritual practices and everyone has their own routine as I said earlier. You can make your own way of spirituality which comforts you and makes you stronger in mind as well as soul. Don’t be judged by others, be your own judge.
“There are three relations between thee and other things: the one to the body which surrounds thee; the second to the Devine cause from which all things come to all; and the third to those who live with thee.” – Marcus Aurelius.
