[AlternativeAnswers] The Power of Spirituality

 

Good Morning!

The Power of Spirituality

To recognize a power that is greater than our own is to recognize our Spirituality.

We understand the mind/body relationship to be inspired by alignment with one's Highest Spiritual Principle and by that awareness we can choose Truth.

Spiritual health is often considered a condition marked by a diminished sense of fear and the daily experience of unconditional love, joy, gratitude, and a personal relationship with your God (1.) (or an awareness of an inner source of infinite power and compassion.)

Religion can play a part in guiding us to the path of Spirituality. BUT, religion is simply a bridge to Spirituality. There are many religions, but only one spiritual truth. This spiritual truth is the journey home to your Self; and the understanding of your emotional courage, truth, and honesty. What is important in life are the good works of love that we do for others.

Spirituality means shining a light into the darkest corners of our world and developing our capacity for compassion for those who are suffering and working for justice for all. (2.)

Surrendering to our higher powers so that your Spirit can orchestrate the infinite correlation of details that are necessary for the manifestation of your desires. (3.) These are the benefits you'll receive when you surrender to a higher power.

Spirituality can be found anywhere. You can experience it in a church or temple, in the revel of nature, in a yoga, dance or exercise class, in the darkest, most unlikely place. Spirituality is a state of mind. It is an experience that brings you closer to the realization of life's truths. It can be found when facing fear, enjoying simplicity or contemplation.

Below you will find Spiritual Truths from all the World's religions. You will find similar concepts throughout each of them, no matter how varied in beliefs they may be.

The Golden Rule

You shall love your neighbor as yourself. - JUDAISM: Leviticus 19.18

Treat others as thou wouldst be treated by thyself. - SIKHISM: Adi Grandth

Desire not for anyone the things that ye would not desire for yourselves. - BAHI-FAITH: Gleanings 66

That nature is only good when it shall not do unto another whatever is not good for its own self. - ZOROASTRIANISM: Dadistan-i-Dinik

All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. - CHRISTIANITY: Matthew 7.12

Not one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself. - ISLAM: Forty Hadith of an-Nawawi

Hurt not others with that which pains yourself. - BUDDHISM: Udana 5.13

Regard your Neighbor's gain as your own gain and your neighbor's loss as your own loss. - TAOISM: T'ai Shang Kan Ying P'ien

Never do to others what would pain thyself. - HINDUISM: Panchatantra 3.104

Do not do to others what you do not want them to do to you. - CONFUCIONISM: Analects 15.23

Remember, spiritual lessons are encrusted in our daily life experiences as jewels. They are made available to everyone who wishes to pay attention and listen.
