Defining Spirituality

“Deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Centre, a speaking Voice, to which we must continuously return." (Alan Kolp)

Spirituality is
The awareness that we are more than flesh and blood that can live on bread alone,
That the world is more than rock and earth,
The recognition that there is an internal terrain one must navigate,
A destination carried within us that can only be reached by being still.

Spirituality is the perpetual movement towards the Light,
Without feeling the need to name it or claim is as one’s own,
The contentedness to enjoy its warmth
And desire nothing more.

It’s hearing the voice in the wind,
The wisdom to interpret its message,
The strength to live it out.

It’s seeing one’s soul reflected in the face of the other,
And creation as the soul’s mirror,
The interconnectedness of all that is.

Spirituality is downing in a sea of love,
Enjoying the suffocation of ego,
The suffocation of fear,
The suffocation of rage,
Letting them sink down to the abyss
Never to rise again.

Spirituality is
The stilling of the mind,
The stilling of the tongue,
The stilling of the soul,
Treasuring the silence that speaks to the heart.

Spirituality is the nurturing of love.
It can be no less,
It can be no more,
Nothing more is needed.
