Spirituality is an awareness that we long to reach a dimension beyond ourselves It is a desire for the Incomprehensible Mystery that we believe exists and is incontact with us in a loving relationship, the Mystery we call God. The deep longing buried in each of us pulls us toward a journey of search for this being. As Christians,we base our spiritual journey in the life of Jesus who imaged this Holy Mystery for us.
My soul thirsts for the living God.
I will recognize this desire in myself and follow where it leads me.
As the deer longs for the running waters,
so my soul longs for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, the living God.
When shall I go and behold the face of God?
I am the utter poverty of God. I am His emptiness, littleness
nothingness, lostness. When this is understood, my life in God’s freedom,\
the self-emptying of God in me is the fullness of grace. A love for God
that knows no reason because God is the fullness of grace. A love for God
that knows no reason because God is God; a love without measure, a love for God as personal.
But if from there you seek your God, you will find God, if you look for God with all your heart and with all your soul.
One of the greatest indicators of our own spiritual maturity is revealed in how we respond to the weaknesses, the inexperience, and the potentially offensive actions of others.
David A. Bednar
I think a spiritual journey is not so much a journey of discovery. It’s a journey of recovery. It’s a journey of uncovering your own inner nature. It’s already there.
There is no greater power in Heaven or on Earth than pure, unconditional love. The nature of the God force, the unseen intelligence in all things, which causes the material world and is the center of both the spiritual and physical plane, is best described as pure, unconditional love.
Spirituality does two things for you. One, you are forced to become more selfless, two, you trust to providence. The opposite of a spiritual man is a materialist. If I was a materialist I would be making lots of money doing endorsements, doing cricket commentary. I have no interest in that.
