Social distancing is still there and by now I guess that some (new) routines were born. Did you spend time on hobbies that you couldn’t do because you didn’t have enough time? I found myself posting more often on social media, working on expanding the reach for my art, trying hand lettering as a new way of expression.
Lately I have been thinking about the reason why do I do all of this. Spirituality is a part of my life since teen years now, it fuelled my creativity and gave me a rock solid basis for crisis situations like the current one. Talking to friends and acquaintances I started to realise that there is still little knowledge about the benefits of investing in your spiritual life:
1. It doesn’t cost anything to get started. With most hobbies you need to purchase stuff . Want to sew? need a sewing machine. Want to draw? you need paper and lots of pens etc. For this one you just need a little bit of time and a quiet space where you can be on your own.
2. Your inner world expands. You start to receive new insights and sometimes even get the feeling of a light literally going on.
Besides, people realise that through this inner connection to their soul, they are connected to the society and the Universe. Loneliness thus becomes impossible to experience 🙂
3. Personal stories are easier to understand and to let go of. Healing takes place and even if sometimes there is sadness, it doesn’t pull someone down like a heavy stone.
4. You learn lots of new techniques and meet new people. In my experience you don’t need a Guru to make progress. It is good to have someone to exchange ideas and get support from time to time.
Which techniques do you use or learn currently? Do you have a favourite online event that you want to share?
