At some point in life, most of us start to feel like we need something more. We want to now if there is more to life than we have experienced already. To me, that is a sign that we want to know how to grow spiritually. Not doing something about that when the time comes can, in my opinion, lead to a stale, stagnated and hardened spirit.
So what do we do about it?
Well, immersing oneself in more and more work does not seem to do the trick, even if that is what quite a few people try when the spirit is calling. For me, searching for something to believe in has been a longterm quest, and I finally found that the most logical thing for me is to believe that we are all connected. I came to that conclusion by reading and meditating and trying to put the piesces together. I also spend a lot of time in nature, and that really makes for a connection, especially when I try to stay focused in the now.
Nature is the greatest teacher!
When you study nature, you really see the Universe at its best. We can never create anything that is more beautiful than what nature creates. And nothing we build or create, and take such pride in, will stay the same. Nature will always reclaim it, and to me that is really reassuring. That means that even if we do our best to pollute and destroy and whatever else we do wrong here on earth, Mother Nature puts her loving hand over the wounds we create and heals them, just like she heals us and gives us beauty to experience every day of our lives, if only we choose to see it.
