My definition of spirituality is being connected to a higher power (whatever name I call it), something bigger than me. And a connection with me, the soul of me. My soul keeps me connected to my higher power. When I disconnect from myself, I disconnect from God.
The symptoms of being disconnected are feeling alone, fearful, procrastination, worried, self doubt, low self worth, not good enough, feeling like a victim, short tempered, impatient, etc. I’m sure these feelings have grabbed you a time or two. They have certainly grabbed me. This usually happens when I let my ego drive the boat.
I get caught up in small “me” conversations. You know, the ones that are all about what I want or think I need. These are usually comparisons: She is doing better than I am, His copy is more interesting than mine. Or they can be judgements and opinions: I shouldn’t do that, I should have done that. This kind of thinking is the highway to disconnection.
Now, we ALL have these thoughts or something similar. The key is how long do we listen to these conversations. The more we listen, the more disconnected we become. The ego takes over and the soul gets buried.
I have learned the way back to connection is to listen to the wisdom of the my soul and what I’m here for. Here is where the clarity comes in. Clarity of purpose is the context for doing all things. We have a choice moment to moment whether we will listen to the ego or follow our purpose. Clarity is the route to reconnect God and soul.
Spirituality is the connection. Clarity is what keeps us on our path. Love is how we be.
