“I live spiritually at every moment, radiating my spiritual personality of peace, love and joy.” – Spirituality in daily life
Spirituality is not separate from daily life. Spirituality shows the right way to go about our daily life. Being spiritual means, we the beings, use the original qualities of the spirit – peace, love and happiness in practical life.
- Spirituality is not about doing something or becoming someone, it is only about being who you truly are; an embodiment of your seven original qualities – purity, peace, love, happiness, bliss, wisdom and power.
- You do not need to leave your responsibilities, cut away from people and meditate all day to be spiritual. Spirituality is about being with people, working towards your goals, but taking care that your every thought, word and behaviour is through a spiritual consciousness.
- Spirituality does not mean meditating one hour to feel good and then doing whatever is convenient during the day. It is about charging the being – the soul, in the morning and then using that power for personal and professional life.
- Nurture the spirit daily through meditation and spiritual study. Mindful eating practises and ethical ways of working energise the spirit. Spiritual health is the foundation of mental, emotional, physical and social health.

Spirituality – The Story
The executive director had faced three very tough years in his business. The board had already reprimanded him twice. In effect, this was his last chance at rescuing the company fortunes.
He had taken a small holiday at the insistence of his wife. She took him to a small commune at the foothills of a mountain range. The change in the quality of the air would refresh his head and probably help him make better decisions was her take. He had agreed.
The commune was actually a center where they vigorously promoted the process of gaining spirituality. He was unconvinced. He had been a corporate warrior for the better part of his life. Decision making had been his adrenaline. This, he was not used to.
But he was pushed into the program by his wife. Things started to happen.
Spirituality is gaining your original self.
You don’t do anything new. You don’t become someone else. It’s just getting back to who you were when you were a child – pure, peaceful, loving, happy, blissful, wise and powerful. Using all your gifted faculties to the hilt.
You don’t meditate to feel good but to use the power for the rest of the day.
Use the meditation energy in your professional and personal life to give you the edge of the original self. You don’t relapse into convenience but take on challenges because now your energy is positive and positioned as a charged spirit.
Use spiritual consciousness to create better thought, speech and behaviour.
You give the better impact of your calmness and learnedness. You do not have to cut away from people and meditate all day. Spirituality is all about being amidst people and working towards your goals by using your consciousness in a better way.
You meditate and do your spiritual studies. You eat mindfully. You practice ethical ways of working with others. You give more. You get more. You remind yourself that spiritual health is the foundation of mental, emotional, physical and social health.
The director returned after two weeks and resumed work. He had changed completely. He had more time for people. He thought a lot more before speaking. He had a serenity that created an aura around him. Work became easy. Decisions easier. The whole company rallied around this new man and productivity went up. The company was saved.
The director then set up batches of his colleagues to go for the retreat and come back with a reset that energized them and their capacities as professionals in the company.
There was no looking back!
