Spirituality Is A State Of Mind

Spirituality Is A State Of Mind

  • A spiritual experience, according to the father of Western psychology, William James, is a state of higher consciousness.
  • Spirituality, in essence, is connectedness, the antithesis of the values of society like capitalism and laws of the land.
  • A spiritual state can be achieved by contemplative and ritualistic practices like prayer and meditation.
  • Many spiritual traditions like Buddhism report a higher state of consciousness and connection.
  • These states of mind need not be rare experiences of a chosen few, but can be reached in daily life by anyone.

Meditation makes our life worth living, as we stop reacting and rushing through our day, and become grounded, rooted and calm.

An egg shaped chamber that increases neural-synchronicity was created by Patrizio Paoletti, a meditation teacher.

During meditation, a large group of brain cells are synchronized, dancing together in great harmony and integrity. This helps the brain become better at almost everything, from problem-solving to reduced addictions, and an increase in moral values.

QMT is a movement meditation that alternates between dynamic movement and still postures. It puts our attention on the present moment(time) and our present location(space). One has to be aware of their inner and outer worlds at the same time.

Simply by paying close attention to our breath and somehow getting past the distraction stage where our mind wants to stop the boring activity and do something else(like checking the smartphone), we can change our mindset from a fear-based individual to someone with high aspirations and values.

The ordinary, once we collect ourselves and pay attention to it in a fully integrated manner, becomes miraculous.
