Satyashri Sant Vivek
All traditions and cultures talk about living spiritually. There are so many theories and writings on spirituality that a common man gets confused. Spirituality is a way of living your normal daily life in synchronisation with the laws of the Universe, doing your ordinary, everyday activities in a spiritual manner, living in present. Forgetting the bad memories of the past and leaving aside the worries of the future. The only way to achieve this is to cultivate spirituality and follow spiritual disciplines in your daily life, that include prayers, meditation, chanting, breathing exercises, and rituals. Though you may see that a fully aware and conscious spiritual person is not following any of these rules yet they are required until a certain level of awareness is attained. Few simple things can help you understand meditation in a better way.
Join a Prayer or Meditation group
Spiritual development is the growth of a person as a whole. For that one needs to focus on all aspects of daily life. As physical and breathing exercise are necessary for keeping the body fit, prayer is a basic requisite for keeping the mind fit. In fact your every thought is a prayer, but for beginners praying with complete focus and awareness helps to climb the higher steps. Modern day psychiatrists also believe that one can be uplifted spiritually if he prays regularly. Praying, joining prayer and meditation groups, attending gatherings of like-minded believers helps in creating better communication with the higher power that governs the Universe.
Share your Skills
Sharing and helping spreads love. It creates a harmony that is of paramount importance in spiritual development. One should offer his skills and time to help others. It is considered to be better than donating money in charities as it makes you humble and more generous. When the focus is on inner self, then the outer self automatically starts radiating positive energies that are emitting from the core of the heart. A person who wants himself to be uplifted spiritually should resolve to himself 'Yes! I will Help'.
