Spirituality Defined

Written by  //  February 13, 2011  //  TIMES  //  No comments


“Generally there is in each individual a divinity which strives to push them onward and upward. We believe that this power within us is the spirit that comes from God. We lived before we came to this earth, and we are here now to strive to perfect the spirit within. At sometime in our life, each one of us is conscious of a desire to come in touch with the Infinite. Our spirit reaches out for God. This sense of feeling is universal, and all of us ought to be, in deepest truth, engaged in the same great work—the search for and the development of spiritual peace and freedom.

“Every noble impulse, every unselfish expression of love; every brave suffering for the right; every surrender of self to something higher than self; every loyalty to an ideal; every unselfish devotion to principle; every helpfulness to humanity; every act of self-control; every fine courage of the soul, undefeated by pretense or policy, but by being, doing, and living of good for the very good’s sake —that is spirituality.”
