Why you are interested in spirituality?
Spirituality to me is a profound, powerful. and an inexplicable non- material element in humans. A disembodied intelligence and conciousness existing apart from matter and yet pervading all matter. I am fascinated and amazed to hear incidents of how it comes into focus and is sharpened in times of great physical and emotional stress, illness bereavement and death and lifts the oppressed human spirit often against all odds and empowers them to overcome the often insurmountable obstacles.
Spirituality links the deeply personal with the universal. The universality of spirituality extends across the cultures and creeds of the world and yet feels as unique to each and every one of us.
Your favorite quote:
"A smile enriches those who receive it without impoverishing those who give it."
Your favorite web sites:
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
Teachings of Prophet Zoroaster says: Manashni, Gavashni, Kunashni meaning "Think Good Thoughts, Speak good Words, Do Good Deeds."
I always endeavour to live by this and therefore hope to learn to be more tolerant towards everyone.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?"
I feel spiritually connected when surrounded by nature. I often visit Swithland Woods in Leicester it is a beautiful old wood it gives me the solitude and spiritual energy to recharge and feel spiritually connected.
