Spirituality & Wellness

Spirituality or Spiritual Realisation is believing in the continuity of the soul after physical death. A belief system in a Higher Being that controls our destiny in a loving way. Spirituality is NOT a religion but transcends religious beliefs and practices. Before we can narrate the correlation between Spirituality and Wellness, we need to outline the fundamental truth about what Spirituality is. Spiritual growth is hungering after God, The Almighty Father, the creator of all things.

Man Is A Spirit

The Spirit in man is indestructible and lives forever, or until an appointed time of eternal judgement, where the spirit would have determined where he is going to, i.e. eternal life or eternal damnation (death). This Spirit is but a spark of The Almighty that resides in man. Each will decide whether they will take the path to eternal damnation or to everlasting joy, for God Almighty has given them FREE choice.

The most important belief is that this Spark of the Almighty God is the guide all man needs to navigate the ocean of unknown in his sojourn on earth. The life on earth is but a school, and we do repeat many times until we reach that stage of perfection when we really do not need to come back again.

In other to quickly learn the lesson, and prevent repeated earth lives, we need to make use of our intuition, which is the Spark of God directing our path. This direction can only be in love, and not otherwise. To help us, our circumstances and environment are chosen for us, all in love. Such choices are to help us get rid of bad behaviours and cultivate selfless virtues that only treat others with love and respect, irrespective. If all work well, accordingly to what God intended for us, then all organs of our body will be in harmony with the spirit, so no illness can occur.

Why Conflict Shows It’s Ugly Head

As long as the spirit in man/woman and his/her personalities are in harmony, then it is all joy, peace, happiness and good health for man/woman. But if man/woman decides to walk his/her own way, contrary to the path laid down or dictated by his/her spirit, either by his own tendency to worldly desires, or persuasion of others, then conflict and disharmony occur. This conflict and disharmony is the cause of illness, joy and unhappiness.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

We mentioned above that as long as there is harmony, there is happiness, peace, joy and good health because this is simply the natural order of things. The Almighty Father wants us to live a life of all joy and contentment. Therefore we are placed in an Earthly condition and or situation that best serve us. No matter our earthly vocation, lowly servants or monarch, landlord or peasant, rich or poor, as long as we listen and follow our intuition, we will be able to learn the lesson and experience what is necessary for our spiritual development.

Separation Is Impossible

Every individual of us is a part of this Eternal Spirit Spark. Although we are each an individual, in his/her own right, yet we are part of a whole, and therefore no separation is possible. This is known as the UNITY OF THE WHOLE. So in fact whatever we did to the others, good or bad is done unto us, and comes back to us in a way. So indeed cruelty to others brings disharmony and leads to illness.

Why Suffering May Be Beneficial

Let me first say this, and I mean it with all sincerity, IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR A PERSON STRIVING TOWARDS THE LIGHT TO SUFFER, and neither it is God’s intention to make mankind suffer. Sorrow and affliction which plague, mankind both saints and sinners today are not part of God’s Divine plan for mankind, but rather man has exercised the free will wrongly to cause this pain. We can define suffering as a form of mental and or physical pain, but it is still personal to each individual. This is because there are people who can endure much more pain than others.

Suffering As A Form Of Priviledge

However a person may redeem some former sin by suffering, but only when he has clearly understood the reason for his suffering, and humbly accepted it as the did, for instance, the penitent thief on the cross, who begged Jesus for forgiveness, and to be remembered in eternal Kingdom.

When one clearly understands one’s suffering in this way, it allows room for spiritual growth. This means suffering is not an inevitable part of one’s growth, but in suffering, one does grow thereby. If we accept that there is a purpose for our lives, and we are not in conflict with this purpose, then, there is no need for suffering. However, if we rebel against this, and believe rather in our own opinion and selfish idea, then suffering is bound to occur. This is because spiritual life is striving towards perfection, and can involve offering ourselves by way of sacrifice, which most times is not palatable, therefore is again a part of suffering.

Anything Growing Requires Change

Everything to do with Spiritual attainment demands renunciation of one kind or another. Even if we do this willingly, it is still a form of sacrifice on our part. When we accept what comes to us, with no bitterness, then we are using our talents wisely. If we feel really bad about it, it is alright to ask for GRACE to endure and get on with it. Your spirit has the capability to deal with it, so acceptance is what your mind needs.

Give yourself what life demands of you without hitting back, or find an excuse or complain. Rather draw on the inner strength which is always available, and by so doing you will be able to serve with love and gratitude those whom you have been called upon to serve.

If a person experienced tribulation and or sorrow so severe, it can refine the soul. In that, this hardship can awaken the finer intuition enough to be sensitive to THE LIGHT. This LIGHT vibration is always present in the UNIVERSE but has not been noticed especially from people who are in pursuit of earthly pleasures. However, a long period of distress, that humbles a broken soul can awaken the vibration and allow this connection. The connection of a broken man in wanting to alleviate the suffering will wish to be closer to God. He may further this wish by prayer and willingness to do the right thing.

How to receive help

The cry for help can only be heard when man directs their thoughts and interest from mundane things, but rather with earnest and humility seek spiritual power. Whenever one’s thought and ways uphold justice and compassion, he will experience peace and joy.

One must be willing to practice this justice and compassion in all it’s undertakings, whatever they may be, whether they concern family, vocation and relationships.

How to react to suffering

First and foremost is to understand THE TRUTH in life that most tragic events in life (at large) and in our lives are only temporary, and they work according to the CREATION LAW OF THE UNIVERSE. This law operates in LOVE OF THE ALMIGHTY, in that it strives towards perfection in mankind. Our understanding of this truth will help us from being depressed by whatever we are going through and give us the courage to soldier on and scale through.

What we are saying here is to develop that individuality and free ourselves from all worldly influences, working and listening only to our intuition (the voice of the soul) for direction. In this way, we take responsibility for our actions and decision always.
