The Importance of Leading a Spiritual Life
Many in the world of today don’t just dismiss Christianity, but the fruits of spiritual faith. They unconsciously reject love for your neighbor, peace, goodness, gentleness, etc. It’s the default for people to reject faithfulness, loyalty, self-control and gentleness for coldness and distance. A vast majority of people nowadays are either agnostics or atheists. While everyone has the right to choose their own religion, spiritualism is not a quality to be thrown away. Instead, it is to be embraced.
The reasons for this are manifold. Spiritual traditions encourage a lot of participation in the community. These don’t necessarily include church gatherings, but also community gatherings. Spirituality is also known to be a key component of strong relationships, and it has been known to increase life expectancy and wellbeing, both physical and mental.
Spirituality has also been known as a great anchor that helps people make better and healthier choices. It’s a direct benefit of leading a healthy lifestyle that enables people to be better human beings to each other. Spirituality means that you don’t hold on to anger or feelings of resentment. Hence, you’re able to see through a lot of the baggage that other people carry to make a decision.
Finally, spirituality has been known to encourage tolerance and harmony. In America, millions of people of diverse backgrounds and ethnicities live together. And while there are times when violence breaks out, the majority of the population comes together in harmony. If more spirituality is practiced, there could be a huge uptick in peace and understanding among the population.
Spirituality is a characteristic that will help you lead a better life, no matter who you are. In these divisive times, we need it more than ever.
