When you have an intense contact of love with nature or another human being, like a spark, then you understand that there is no time and that everything is eternal. ~ Paula Coelho
Have you ever experienced a moment where you felt absolute oneness with the world and everyone around you? A single, frozen moment in time when everything became clear and you suddenly understood that we are all connected? If you have, you’ve experienced what some call natural spirituality. It’s captured by observing the rhythm, vibration and cycles of nature and knowing that you’re a part of it.
- It’s in the moments when you step outside and take a deep breath of fresh air and feel so alive and happy to be exactly where you are
- It’s in the moment that you kiss a newborn’s head and feel a surge of love ripple throughout your entire body & soul as you cradle this brand new life in your arms
- It’s in the moment when you look through old photographs of long-passed ancestors and realize that who they were in part contributed to who you are today
- It’s in the moment when you feel delight while getting puppy kisses and marvel over the love you can feel for a pet
- It’s in the moments when you sit alone in silence, next to the lake, ocean, river or stream and feel at peace with the world as you listen to the water meeting the earth’s surface
- It’s in the moments where we follow the guidance of our hearts instead of listening to our over-analyzing, self-doubting minds
- It’s in the moments when we dare to live out our dreams, knowing with confidence that we deserve all of the good this world has to offer
Nobody can give you spirituality. No religion can teach you how to be spiritual. It is only when we begin to recognize the interconnectedness in the world – our bond to others and to nature – that our minds and hearts become more open to the fact that spirituality is ingrained within us; it’s just a part of who we are as human beings.
When we really start to take notice that we are all connected, spirituality just becomes a core part of who we are.
We begin to realize that our relationships are a microcosm of the world around us. We consciously and subconsciously create the environment in which we live. By finding and understanding our own true nature and finding the love within, we find it outside of us, too.
Can you remember moments when you experienced a sense of connectedness with your fellow human beings, nature or the world at large? What does spirituality mean to you? Is it something you practice or just a part of who you are?
