Balancing the you within requires mental, physical, and spiritual balance. One of the more difficult, and the most lacking of most people is spiritual growth. I am a Christian. I have been raised with Christian values for my entire life. Although, Christianity’s fundamental basis is to create disciples in every nation, I believe everyone is entitled to their beliefs and I respect everyone’s beliefs, though they may not be the same as mine.
I think it is important to acknowledge that we are living beings and that this did not happen from mere chance. We all have purpose and most times, we don’t know what that purpose is and whether we will fulfill that purpose. But I like to think that our life isn’t just a fortuitous opportunity. We were all brought on this Earth to impact someone and/or something.
As a Christian, naturally I believe in God. Even though, not everyone believes in God, most religions have some higher being. I think it is important that people acknowledge that there is a higher being out there. We should not be arrogant and think we are the center of the universe. Humility leads a life of great passion and opportunity. If you allow arrogance to define you as a person, your life may have little meaning and minimal happiness.
Spiritual growth begins from within and it requires deep soul searching. I’m not sure about women, but I know lots of men ponder their very existence in the shower or as we lay in bed at night before sleep. As I read more about spirituality, I’m discovering that everything is within you and your thoughts. When I say spirits, I’m not speaking of some unnatural apparitions such as ghosts and wraiths. I’m speaking of being a better person. I’m speaking of discovering a whole new you.
If you have no idea what I just blogged about, that’s okay. I may not have done a very good job of writing it because I’m still discovering myself as a person and as a being. The whole purpose of this blog is to find out who I am and become a better me. I just know spirituality is a critical component of who I am and what I want to become. Maybe it’s not important what you believe in, but that you have beliefs.
