For a lot of people, spirituality and religion play no part in their lives. That’s okay, but it can put them at a disadvantage when it comes to positivity.
Looking at the world through the lens of reason reveals some shocking metaphysical truths. Human life is mostly an accident. The universe doesn’t care whether you live or die. There’s nobody “out there” who is going to protect you if things go wrong. There’s no spiritual dimension to reality that we can detect with our modern instruments.
When you internalize all of those beliefs – true or not – it can have a profound impact on the way that you view the world. You either accept them all and come up with a new system or worth, or you become very cynical about existence.
Being spiritual, however, gets around these problems. Even if you accept the findings of science, you still allow yourself the luxury of assuming that there’s something beyond the “everyday world” that is important and has deep meaning.
The current coronavirus pandemic is a case in point. Those who have spirituality can often see beyond disease and death to some shining shore, waiting to call them home. That sort of thinking can be of great solace in a time of crisis when the world seems to be falling apart.
A person who doesn’t have spirituality can’t call on that mental resource. They don’t have much that can make them feel better in their hour of need. They must deal with the facts as they present themselves without consolation.
It can also work the other way around, of course. Being positive is a reason for being spiritual. You might be the kind of person who just can’t accept a purely physical explanation for why we’re all here. You need something more. The reality we have is too precious for there not to be some sort of spirit world out there that makes sense of it all.
A lot of positive people experiment with their spiritual side. In today’s world, it has never been easier. With psychic readings available over the phone, you have access to readers as and when you need. You don’t have to go to a formal religious gathering or anything like that. All the services you need are at your fingertips.
Being spiritual forces you to spend more time thinking about your inner self. It is an inward-facing activity most of the time, that focuses on your attitudes and beliefs. It challenges you to progress as a person and build more resilience. It doesn’t try to distract you in any way, unlike so much in the modern world. Instead, it is a tool that people use to build themselves up, get away from the dreariness of rank materialism, and expand their horizons.
Undoubtedly, reality can be harsh, as we’re finding out right now. But being spiritual helps you see things from a broader perspective. Life will go on, the world will keep spinning, and there will always be bright spots in the future worth fighting for.
