Good morning friends. For some people, a quest may be encased in a religious experience—for others, it might be a crisis or a dramatic change in personal circumstances, such as a birth or death. And while religion is the spark that lights the fire within some individuals, it can also imposed a limiting structure with rules and belief systems that interfere with true personal growth—especially when the distinctions between religion and spirituality become blurred.
We believe that our purpose in being here is to grow spiritually. We do this in a variety of ways—none of which are better or lesser than others; but, rather, are chosen by us because we are at various stages of spiritual unfoldment. The goals of peace, integrity, clarity, compassion and in particular, the balance between mind and body through personal and spiritual development are essential to spiritual development, regardless of the particular path one chooses to follow. Spirit [God] is equally present in the job as in the remote mountainside.”
In the end, setting out on a spiritual quest—may be less a choice than it is a necessity. What often makes people begin a quest, is a feeling restlessness, and that something beyond is coming through to us, says Andrews. Begin by seeing your intentions. Set your intention to live a happier or fulfilling life. Speaking strictly to that intention will lead us to being aware of guides or teachers around us, someone who can help on the path. Again, it’s essential to set your intention to reclaim your own happiness and connection with life. I feel that the spiritual path to greater consciousness has been –part of the human experience forever, and always will be. Fit Yoga
