In Spirituality there are three levels that I consider fundamental.
- Emotions – our emotional life has a huge impact on us and therefore it is a fundamental aspect to face to live happily.
- Mind – the mind is the greatest resource with which we are endowed because everything passes from here and it is with the mind that we can change our life.
- Soul – what has the most important role is the soul. We can’t transform our lives and be happy without working on our spirituality.
Often the feelings we don’t understand, the dreams that seem to warn us of something, are a way in which these levels communicate. The spiritual part informs and advises us. We should not confuse every feeling (which is often the result of mental patterns and beliefs or fears) as a special message.
Connecting to our soul, to this dimension that we don’t see with our eyes, is our mind. A dream passes from here, a feeling is elaborated from here. Our mind processes every external stimulus and this can be a physical stimulus, easy to understand and see, or an immaterial stimulus much more difficult to understand, but also more important.
Spirituality – we are body and soul
The spiritual dimension is very important in our life, the thing that strikes me most is that often whoever treats it as a priority reduces the soul to the servant of the body. The proposed spiritual paths are aimed at taking advantage of your body. The slogan is more, and the application of a spiritual path almost always ends on one of these points:
Improve your working conditions.
Having more money and wealth to live better.
Having deeper and sincere relationships with others.
Get the person we want in our life.
Have more health, more strength, more well-being.
That said, there is something that goes beyond what we see, the question we should ask ourselves is: what role does spirituality play in our life?
Do we only need our spirit to have more every day and to get more pleasure from the things we do?
Or is he just a messenger who offers us some valuable advice if we listen to him?
My experience has led me to understand that this is the way to be happy because the spirit comes before the body. It’s not that we too have a spirit to be interested in. In reality, we are a spirit that also has a body. We are a spirit that experiences a bodily experience. The body is a matter, it has its duration and will end.
The spirit no, it has no end and continues beyond our material journey. Usually, it happens instead that we give all the importance to the body and leave aside the spirit. We see the body, we feel discomfort, emotions, and problems. What we perceive with our senses is much more immediate and it becomes obvious that we behave in this way.
In a culture like ours where only what we see matters, there is little room for the spirit. So why should we take a completely different direction and make choices that few, if any, could understand or accept? Because you want to be happy and spirituality has the greatest weight on your happiness.
Since the eyes are easily deceived, appearance influences us to make mistakes often. Because if your spiritual dimension is strong, the mind and body also become. the first big change, capable of transforming your life, of realizing your personal growth, is understanding that we must overturn the vision we have of our existence.
