Spiritual journal

Do you believe in god? Are you afraid of dying? Do you ever think about helping others? Why are we here? What am I doing? Where am I going? These are spiritually related questions that come to everyone but few people ever look for answers. These spiritual questions come and go. Many of us never try to find the answers. We are too busy on social media sites looking at things that don’t matter. These sites will never help us to find the deepest answers to our spiritual questions – so why waste our precious time. Why not start a spiritual journal for our spiritual awakening. It’s very easy to do. Just think of a question and start writing. There are no right answers, whatever comes to mind just write them down.

Alternatively, if you want to start your spiritual awakening I suggest you try Shalu Sharma’s book called: “Spiritual Journal: 101 Spiritual Questions to Ask Yourself: Spiritual Awakening”. There are 101 spiritual questions and all you have to do is pick up a page and start writing.

Must read beautiful Spirituality quotes by famous people:

If you look to others for fulfilment, you will never be truly fulfilled. Lao Tzu

For a long time it has seemed to me that life was about to begin; Real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, and a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. Father Albert D'Souza

God is to me that creative force, behind and in the universe, who manifests Himself as energy, as life, as order, as beauty, as thought, as conscience, as love. Henry Sloane Coffin

Whilst everything around me is ever changing, ever dying there is underlying all that change a living power that is changeless, that holds all together, that creates, dissolves and recreates. That informing power or spirit is God....And is this power benevolent or malevolent? I see it as purely benevolent. For I can see that in the midst of death life persists, in the midst of untruth truth persists, in the midst of darkness light persists. Hence I gather that God is Life, Truth, Light. He is Love. He is the supreme Good. Mahatma Gandhi

Imagine that every person in the world is enlightened but you. They are all your teachers, each doing just the right things to help you learn perfect patience, perfect wisdom, perfect compassion. Buddha

Spiritual opening is not a withdrawal to some imagined realm or safe cave. It is not a pulling away, but a touching of all the experience of life with wisdom and with a heart of kindness, without any separation. Jack Kornfield

That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God. Albert Einstein

Instead of an intellectual search, there was suddenly a very deep gut feeling that something was different...seeing that Sun...set in the background of the very deep black and velvety cosmos, seeing - rather, knowing for sure - that there was a purposefulness of flow, of energy, of time, of space in the cosmos - that it was beyond man's rational ability to understand, that suddenly there was a nonrational way of understanding that had been beyond my previous experience...On the return trip home, gazing through 240,000 miles of space toward the stars and the planet from which I had come, I suddenly experienced the universe as intelligent, loving, harmonious. Edgar Mitchell

Your mind cannot possibly understand God. Your heart already knows. Emmanuel

It is through solving problems correctly that we grow spiritually. We are never given a burden unless we have the capacity to overcome it. If a great problem is set before you, this merely indicates that you have the great inner strength to solve a great problem. There is never really anything to be discouraged about, because difficulties are opportunities for inner growth, and the greater the difficulty the greater the opportunity for growth. Peace Pilgrim

Every hardship; every joy; every temptation is a challenge of the spirit; that the human soul may prove itself. The great chain of necessity wherewith we are bound has divine significance; and nothing happens which has not some service in working out the sublime destiny of the human soul. Elias A. Ford

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
