Spirituality can perhaps be described as the individual pursuit for a re-connection with a spiritual force greater than ourselves. Spirituality is very different from Religion. For example, religions have hierarchies, doctrine, symbols, rituals, ceremonies and rules whereas Spirituality has none of these things. Perhaps the best distinction to make is that a Religion is for groups of people, whereas Spirituality is for the individual. It is the personal and private practice of connecting to a wiser being in the way that seems perfectly right for us, where we can choose to cultivate our own methods or incorporate those of others on the spiritual path.
People new to the spiritual path need information, that they can choose to apply, believe in or not and the process of spiritual development, often misunderstood by many, will invariably require your own self-progression. The two go hand-in-hand, which can sometimes come as a surprise for those who would rather not reflect that deeply. Perhaps it may be explained in that everything that has life has energy and as we upgrade ourselves spiritually, the old layers of human and conscious misperception about ourselves, fall away in perfect synchronicity. The spiritual world is indeed a fascinating and beautiful world but it is a world that needs navigating and guidance. The first thing to know is that the spiritual path is not really a path at all, it’s a fast-track astral conveyor belt that will open your mind to energies that you might not have ever realised existed before, where a gentle approach is recommended.
Some people believe we are more than just physical matter and human construction that ends when our lives come to an end. But those on the spiritual path understand that as the physical body ends when our scripts are completed, our etheric and astral bodies continue on. Whilst it is healthy to form our own beliefs about our spiritual existence and the afterlife, an experience of life can be translated as part of the journey of the soul, that one day returns to the unconditional loving nature that created it in perfect adoration.
