What Is True Spirituality?

That's a good question. Let's find out what true spirituality is and isn't. For a start, it's very common that novice spiritual seekers daydream about having supernatural powers. May it be the ability to perform miracles, emit powerful spiritual energy or read others' minds.

The above abilities can inflate the ego like nothing else and make the person feel really special. Moreover, onlookers are likely to believe that anyone with supernatural powers is a spiritual master, which is not the case.

It's unskillful to feed the ego. So, to carry out spiritual practices for the sole purpose of attaining supernatural powers is foolish.

Keep in mind that true spiritual practice leads to wisdom. In this case the wisdom is in perfect balance with your level of spiritual maturity. As a result, your feet are firmly planted on the ground.

True Spiritual Practice

It's important that you have good intentions with your spiritual practice. For example, if you meditate in order to overcome unpleasant emotions and childhood traumas, your intentions are wholesome.

As you may already know, spiritual practice purifies the mind. A common example would be the angry or irritable individual that develops warmth and patience. Hence, morality is one of the cornerstones of spiritual practice.

Another vital component is awareness, which includes awareness of your own feelings and thoughts as well as what is going on around you. The combination of morality and awareness make for a divine tool.

True spiritual practice has nothing to do with your outer appearance, you can dress in any clothes you like. What truly matters is your mental state. Awareness and a selfless attitude form the very foundation of true spiritual practice. That's the very path to wisdom and lasting happiness.

Best of luck!
