What does it mean to live spiritually?


I have made a new friend who is from the faith of Islam. It is so interesting talking to him and discussing what religion means to him and to me. The conversation was light hearted with lots of humour and tolerance but there was a serious issue behind it. Although as friends we can talk and joke about it and learn from each other if we were to live together that could become a bit of a challenge. Neither of us wants to change our views as they make sense to us and they help us make sense of our lives. What Islam means for him and spirituality means for me has some commonalities and some differences. It is living with those differences that is complicated. It is easy to respect another person’s beliefs when the reality of it does not impinge in your own reality. But what happens when the two realities try to merge? I know it is not impossible, I know of couples from different religions who live together with lots of tolerance and respect. My admiration goes to them.

About Malena 113

I am a light worker. I was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain in the early seventies and first came to England in my late teens. From then on I visited a few times, came to do some sightseeing, studied and finally settled down to work. Reiki found me in the early 2000 as a continuation of my spiritual development. I achieved Masters in Reiki in 2010 and have trained other people since. I am currently studying Theta Healing, another modality of healing. I also work with angels and archangels and they are now part of my everyday life.
