Hi my fellow bloggers. As of today my mental health is fairly better and I am have been doing great. I really wanted to write on this topic from a long time but was neither was I able to think nor I was able to express myself in words. The wfh has really taken a toll on my mental health and I am sure many others.
But, I will keep that topic for some other day. Let’s focus on spirituality for now.
So, what does spirituality mean to me? To me it means being neutral with your emotions, helping others, meditation, no expectations.
But, in today’s era people of my age and youngsters are confusing it with indulging in addictions such as weed by giving themselves reasons such as Shiva being an aghori used to have chillum. Which is absolutely incorrect. The books available in the market, emphasises more on modern Shiva which gives them reasons and makes them feel better by indulging in addictions.
All I want to clear is Shiva never asked us to indulge in chillum knowing it’s not good for health. We need to stop giving reasons for our actions.
To really understand the meaning of spirituality you need to work on your self. You need to stop expecting from others, release attachments. I know it’s difficult. And also it doesn’t mean that you stop loving your closed ones it just means that you don’t expect anything in return.
Releasing yourself from attachments is an act of being spiritual. That doesn’t mean you leave everything and go to Himalayas for meditation. It just means that you are content with yourself. You still love people.
Usually, when people reach a certain age or rather I should say their 60’s they become spiritual as they have experienced everything in their life and are free from materialistic world. But, some people realise their purpose at an early age. I have seen people spiritually awake during the pandemic and I am a part of that tribe.
If you start asking these questions or you feel in the following ways then you may be on your spiritual path:
1) What is the purpose of my life?
2) Have I been born to just earn money, eat and sleep?
3) What makes me happy?
4) I can feel detached ( but not really detached from the people you love) / I don’t have any expectations, I have become neutral.
5) seeing repetitive numbers.
6) Dreams which have a significant meaning.
7) Start to follow your passion.
8) It doesn’t matter how much you are earning.
9) free of judgements.
That’s it for today, my only intention was to make people aware of what is the real meaning of spirituality.
All these are from my personal experiences.
