A co-worker and I had a discussion on the connection between the physical self and the spirit. Both of us had been raised in one faith and now practice another; interesting I thought.
During the discussion I discovered someone who shared similar thoughts to mine when it comes to where the world is today as opposed to days gone by. I firmly believe that the majority of people suffer from a disconnect between themselves and their spirit. I believe this is why many people spend years aimlessly searching for something that was within them all along.
I think back to a time, not so very long ago, when it was almost taboo to admit to having no faith, no spirituality; no belief system. Now, it is almost taboo to admit to having one. When I mention going to church I sometimes get looks akin to someone noticing that I have three heads. Why is this?
Can we attribute the downward spiral of society to the disconnect of physical self and spirit? I think we can to a large degree. When I feel out of sorts and find myself becoming short tempered and less tolerable I know it is time to focus on my spirit. I would like to say that I get to church every Sunday, but I do not, I do however thank my God every day for all the blessings in my life. I remember to be grateful.
Perhaps if more folks could reconnect their physical self to their spirit we would see a happier world.
