Spirituality is everything that has to do with the Spirit, the Soul, the Atman, or what in reality is the energy of life in us. Why is it so important? Because that’s all! If there is no life energy in us, then we are dead, then there is nothing. The only thing that really exists is this life energy that we are, but we do not realize.
We believe that we are the body; we are the mind, whereas in reality, we are the Spirit. Therefore, Spirituality is the knowledge of the Spirit. It is about being aware of who we really are. If we do not follow a spiritual life, then we live a life of illusion.
Why Is Spirituality Important?
Spiritual life is all about the realization of the Spirit, whether through meditation or following a religion. Spirituality is awakening the truth about the Spirit
Every living being, from the smallest insect to the more evolved human being wishes to acquire supreme quality of happiness continuously and constantly. Every moment he makes attempts to acquire it. The happiness which is everlasting and of supreme quality is called Anand. The science which teaches how to acquire supreme joy or Anand is termed, ‘the science of Spirituality’.
True spirituality is ultimately about being true to yourself. This is why many spiritual people are also free-spirited. It’s about finding a system that works for you.
People don’t know what Spiritualism is and why Spirituality is important, but they want to experience Spiritual awakening, they want to experience self-realization. We don’t know who we are, where we came from, and where we will go. We don’t know who God is, where God is, what God is, but we know that God exists, that there is a power we call God. However, how many people really want to know God? How many of us are really making an attempt to know God through spiritual enlightenment.
Spiritual Enlightenment is the state of realization – when we realize we are not this body, we are not this mind, we are the divine Spirit, which is also the ultimate goal of life. This liberates us from suffering, from misery and pain. This liberates us from the cycle of death and rebirth, if ever there is.
Spirituality will help us realize the truth. Therefore, we must bring Spirituality into our lives. Spirituality is the only solution to our unhappiness, it is critical for our well-being and peace. We are so caught in this world of illusions that we do not contemplate on the one thing that we must – the Spirit, the Life Energy, the Atman or the Soul!
Through Spiritual enlightenment, One feels like giving this temporary life, support of the permanent (Spirituality). That is, one feels like going from incompleteness to Absoluteness at some time or the other since there is a certainty of finding everlasting Joy or Anand on this path.
