You go to church every Sunday and you say your prayers every day. Does this mean you are a spiritual person? No.
What, then, does it mean to be a spiritual person?
Being a spiritual person is synonymous with being a person whose highest priority is to be loving your Creator, loving to yourself and others. A spiritual person cares about people. A spiritual person knows that we are all One. A spiritual person is generous. A spiritual person is a kind person.
So, the question is; "why are spiritual people happy while religious people aren’t?"
Spiritual people live from within, while religious people live from without.
Spiritual people choose to be happy from within, in their imagination, while religious people try to work their way into happiness from without.
Spiritual people choose to engage in behaviors that produce happiness.
There are many religious people who are anything but happy. We all know of religious people who are extremely judgmental, righteous, and outright mean. Can you be both religious and spiritual? Of course! But only when you are operating in your religion from your heart rather than from the learned dogma of your mind.
My experience of God is that God is the Love that created us and sustains us.
If you want to be a spiritual person, then let kindness be your guiding light — kindness toward yourself, toward others, toward animals and toward this beautiful planet that is our home.
So make the choice to be happy now. Imagine happiness now! You must choose to be happy in the present moment, regardless of your circumstance. Now is the only time that you have. Learn to live happily in the moment.
So breathe in and out deeply, and affirm: "I am happy NOW!"
Happiness starts NOW!
Happiness is NOW!
