Spirituality is not about escaping the body, it is about embracing our total reality and know ourselves fully
Consciousness in motion
There is a vital existential and spiritual dimension to ourselves that is rarely seen and largely goes untouched
Spirit body (Latin,
spiritus, breath, life, soul, mind): The primary objective is
to introduce you to all aspects of yourself, making sense of the human aura
(energy bodies) and interconnectedness to our 'Higher Self' and 'Source,' i.e. Oneness with all of creation, of which we are apart..
spirit is the eternal essence that is connected to the divine source and
carries our spiritual truths, purpose, gifts and related psychic abilities that
we forget when we incarnate into our physical bodies. We came here on a
journey, to experience, learn lessons, and to achieve a higher state of being -
love, empathy and compassion, before returning back to source when we die, our
spiritual essence returns, and our physical body is no more. But we don't die (only the physical matter of our bodies) as energy changes from one form to another. Energy never, or indeed ceases to be, nor is it created. It has no beginning or end.
Higher spiritual dimension connection
is part of us (and completely separate from the brain and the body) and is
affected by anything and effects everything. It is interconnected with our
spirit and is a permanent channel of communication. The deep sensing of
our individualized projections of consciousness and physical existence. Its job
is to hold a record of your experiences and ensure you learn all of life's
lessons. It is immune to criticism and, at the same time, feels superior
to no one, as it recognizes everyone is the same, but in different disguises and
Spirituality is about knowing more than just your physical body
Spirituality (nothing to do with religious practices) is is about getting to know about who you "truly" are (the instant the ego surrenders). However, most people will only understand and value their true spiritual natures when it becomes practical to do so; bereavement, loss, ill-health, redundancy, relationship breakdown and time to ourselves.
When we let go of what we're not, we become who we "truly" are
If you're ego is entirely based on the job you once held and this required you to masquerade as this person you thought you needed to be to fit in with the culture you may feel bereft, (same goes for relationship's) - if its not the "true" you, then who are you? This is probably something you may encounter - 'life happens,' and we look outside ourselves for meaning.
To 'quote' Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung-
"Most of the people I see suffer not from physical illness, but from spiritual aimlessness. They have lost their AIM. They have lost sight of who they really are and of what is Really Valuable!"
Choosing your destination and purpose in life
Awakening, is the removal of the veils of illusion, and the deepest level of healing. We no longer look outside of ourselves for approval. Self understanding is the prelude to transformation and that includes our souls calling - when we connect we become our own internal reference point, our own observer (consciousness) expressing itself - our truth. No more focusing on trivia and searching for that missing link - the destination is actually to be found within.
