A Spiritual Person

I had an interesting conversation with an online friend this weekend. He said, more or less, that I intimidated him because I seemed so deep and spiritual. Boy was I shocked. Those are not two worlds I would use to describe myself.

Spiritual people, to me, don’t get bogged down in daily life like I do. I see them as being above all those little daily disappointments. Spiritual people are also able to make their desires and goals come true, or at least develop and implement plans that will lead the fulfillment of those goals. I would like to be able to do that, but I can’t. I couldn’t even finish my NaNo novel last month. (There are few words to describe how disappointed I was. But I just wasn’t able to overcome the wall I hit.)

I don’t think I am a spiritual person. I am a person trying to find my spirituality, trying to become a better person. I don’t know what that means yet. But, I think the journey to find out is something that will make me a stronger person.

  1. Don’t be disappointed that you’re “bogged down in daily life”. I have six children, four of whom live with me – I’m bogged on a continual basis. 🙂

    I like engaging with life. Life is Good, and is chock full of rich, rewarding experience. The trick is to disengage from life at the same time we engage in it – taking both pleasure and pain in equal stride, letting neither deviate us from our path. If we can manage this, we began to see more and more the architecture of the Divine in our everyday lives. Insisting that we find time for our pure spiritual pursuits – meditation, Tarot, etc. – is also critical.

    Not an easy path – we’ll slip a lot along the way. Fortunately, the spiritual life doesn’t have to happen in an instant. Spirituality is a high water mark toward which we’re constantly evolving. Seeking is half the battle.

    Spirituality comes from within the soul. It’s what you believe becomes your spirituality. If you aren’t spiritually active…you can. But it all depends on to what you believe. For me, I believe in Jesus Christ. I’m a Catholic and have a strong faith. I’m very spiritually active at home, at school and at church. It all comes down to what you believe in. It’s your choice to what or whom you believe. Catholicism is very unique…it’s worth a million words really. Being spiritual means you have to have a strong faith in something or someone. If you want to become a Catholic, that would make me SO happy! But it’s your choice. If you want to start…start reading the Bible or going to a Catholic Church. My goal is to finish the Bible before I’m 18 years old. I go to Church 2x every Sunday plus an hour of prayer at a Church every Saturday. Right now I’m 15 and people think I’m mature for my age, especially with Religion. Tell me what you think. I got more ideas, hehe…
