I always wondered how to merge a ‘normal’ life with a ‘spiritual life’. I am not able to take time out on a regular basis, travel the world or devote my entire life only to spirit. I admire people who have chosen that path but this is clearly not my path. Living in this Western society we tend to do things one hundred miles per hour, always onto the next target, everything has to be perfect or there are serious consequences. Saying sorry for our mistakes is not enough anymore in today’s litigation culture. How, in the midst of all this, do I manage to have as ‘spiritual’ life as possible? By creating little oasis of calm throughout the day. I meditate whilst I m at the gym, or walking, or cleaning the house, the garden or cooking. Admittedly it is not the same as sitting down and taking time to do a proper meditation, but it gets me through the day. Sometimes I take a few minutes in the car before I get into work and I just sit there and take in all the goodness. I dissociate myself from the work I am doing sometimes and try and see myself from up there whislt I am teaching children; it brings me another perspective, makes me realise that we are all spiritual and we don’t have to ‘try to be spiritual’ be already are however we forget on our everyday lives because we give ourselves so many targets and we try to achieve so much. We don’t realise there is one thing we have already achieved, being spiritual however it helps if we can nurture that in ourselves. How do you integrate spirituality and everyday life?
