The last area of your life that requires sharpening is your spiritual self. When most people think spiritual, they think religion. That definition doesn’t work well for me, because I’ve never really followed any organized religion. I didn’t grow up in a home where we attended church every Sunday. In fact, if we went, it was once or twice a year when my grandparents would visit. That’s not to say I wasn’t raised with many of the beliefs and values practiced by the religion of my parents and relatives.
For me spirituality is more about a connection to myself. It’s quiet time spent in nature, or alone in meditation. I don’t have anything against people who make organized religion a regular part of their life, it’s just not how I choose to express or explore spirituality. I certainly recognize that religion has a place in our society, I just feel that to some degree it has been used over the ages as a way to control or manipulate people rather than empower and inspire them.
I have to admit, of the 4 areas to sharpen this is likely the weakest for me. I have explored meditation and haven’t yet made it a regular part of my routine. I do enjoy being outside, and in fact sitting around a fire under the open sky is about as peaceful a feeling for me as anything I’ve experienced. Spirituality is an area of my life that I’m still exploring and learning more about. I’d love to hear what you find helps you to sharpen your saw in this area of your life.
