Spirituality is not a form of practice but a state of being. Sure it can be termed as a path or a journey, which is very individual, a journey which is, not outward but inward, leading one to realize or to know oneself to the fullest. It is that state of being where all duality is dropped i.e. love-hate, good-bad, day-night etc don’t seem to be opposites any more, but now sensed as the two sides of the same coin, which usually we only get to see one at a time. A spiritual person will able to see the hidden happiness in today’s sorrow and the potential sorrow in the current happiness, hence is unfazed by the extremities that he faces in day to day life.
Spirituality is living in the NOW and HERE. There is nowhere to go there is no there is no other time to “seek”, but here in this current moment. The power of NOW. Usually we are lost either cribbing about our past or lost in the future on how the coming time will shape, but totally miss this great moment of NOW. Spirituality holds us in the current moment, while the process of realization starts to work upon an individual gradually. Diving deep within, in deep meditation, just being a “watcher” and not doer of things brings one closer to one’s real self. Alternate Lifestyle and Spirituality cuts across all castes, creed and Religion and unites people, religions, nations...everything becomes seamless. At this point the “watcher” is alert very alert and “watched” becomes silent more silent. Silence is the essence of meditation, only in silence does Spirituality flowers, providing the eternal bliss and blossoming.
