Give Up Trying To Be Spiritual… Just Be YOURSELF!

So what is “spiritual” to you?

There are so many books today giving rules and guidelines for being spiritual.

You cannot NOT be spiritual.

Whether you are in tune with that awareness or not, at your core you are pure spirit.

Spirituality is that state of expanded awareness where you experience your universality. As you remember who you really are, you remember who another really is.

We are One.

So what if you dropped the idea that you have of what “spiritual” should be based on someone else’s concepts?

That spiritual is:

– Speaking a certain way

– Only eating certain foods

– Going to sleep at a certain time

– Making certain sounds

– Dressing or not dressing in a certain manner

– Being only interested in certain things

– Listening to only a certain kind of music

– Etc.

What if being truly spiritual had nothing to do with any of that?

What if being spiritual wasn’t simply about what things looked like on the surface but was more about the state of your consciousness? …To be connected to the source of who you REALLY are and living that in an authentic way.

Then regardless of what you do, wear, or look like on the surface, everything you do is spiritual simply because spirit is what you ARE.

“Spiritual” is BEING authentically who you are and living it. It’s who and what you are. There are infinite ways that it can look and be expressed in the physical world.

We sometimes create limited prisons for ourselves based on how we define being spiritual. If your concept of what spiritual is is determined by your limited conditioning based on your past, cultural programming or parental conditioning, your freedom is limited.

Being truly spiritual is to live outside of the defined boxes, labels, and to be yourself fully.

Acting spiritual doesn’t make you spiritual.

You ARE pure spirit already.

If we aren’t careful, even being “spiritual” can become another trap that limits your authentic expression. Where you try to fit yourself into some preconceived idea of what you think “spiritual”should be rather than being authentically you.

When you drop your idea of what you think being “spiritual” should look like based on what you’ve been told or read in a book, then you can go deep within and listen to the authentic intelligence of your own spirit.

As you allow your true nature to guide you, each step of the way, you begin to naturally live a spiritual life as a result.

When you drop your concept of what “spiritual” should be, then you are free!

When you let it all go, then you can open beyond your mind and find out how your spirit wants to express through you, moment to moment.

Ultimately, to be spiritual is simply to be your SELF. (Tweet-worthy!)

Your real SELF that is beyond your conditioning.

The best way to contribute to the world is to be YOU.

Be your SELF.

And be FREE.

    Oh, this is just wonderful! I have been struggling lately with wanting to break away from organized religion but feeling guilty about it because parents and friends say, “Well, you can still go to mass and feel blah blah blah” when what I’m trying to tell them is I don’t feel that in organized religion. That’s where I currently feel the limits and want to break free of them. Any advice for overcoming that guilt? :)
    Thank you for this beautiful piece!

      Caroline,
      I feel your conflict. I was brought up in a Christian household, and made a decision to leave church when I was 18. My faith is still amazingly strong, and I do have a personal and close relationship with ‘my version’, of God. Other people are not on your journey. They may not understand it, and may try to impose their views on what you need to do. If being part of organized religion conflicts you, and makes you down on yourself, then that is going to detract from your peace of mind. heart, and natural ability to express yourself in a loving and free way. Your relationship with God/Universe/Source. whatever you want to call it, is YOUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP.It is not dependent on your going to mass. Guilt is a ‘badboy’. It keeps everyone in a state of fear, and self hatred. ‘Aint nobody got time for that’. Be you Caroline. Its totally safe to be you.

    Oh, so needed this today. Real message to just ‘get over myself’, and stop trying to ‘do’. Lots of triggers going on for me in terms of new people coming into my life, who are part of organised religion. (something I stepped away from a long time ago). Never felt so ‘less than’, and ‘not enough’, through the pressure this has brought back. Needed to hear this. I will continue to listen to music that makes me dance around my apartment, including J Cole, and many others. And. I wont allow myself to get tied up in other peoples versions of what constitutes a life lived in a spiritual way. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Really loved this! It’s hard when everything you read says “you need to do A, B, and C to be more spiritual, and then you need to do 1, 2, and 3 after that to gain even more spirituality, and here’s something else you have to do too.” And then you try those things and you don’t feel more “spiritual” at all. It actually starts to feel like a a burden in some ways. This was really refreshing to read and reminded me to just do my own thing, whatever makes me happy and feel at peace.

    This is so helpful! I often struggle with … should I do this or is it okay to decline that or is it a divine message trying to get me to do something I really don’t want to do … what would a spiritual person do, what did that book say, etc,. Sometimes it can be difficult to just be me without doubting myself or what I should do. I try to give those thoughts up to a higher power but the certainly occur . Your blog really spoke to me! Thank you so much.
