Thought of the Day: May 10, 2018 – Spiritual goals
Do you have any spiritual goals? Might sounds weird I know, but do you feel like you should? I don’t think you need to believe in God to have faith filled goals.
I believe setting these types of goals can be done in different ways. You can sit in a quiet place and search within. Write down the values that come to you.
As a child my mom told me God is anywhere. So I understood I did not have to go to a religious center to practice my faith. She told me if I want, ask God for anything no matter you are. So I do just that.
Many people don’t believe there is a God, so they don’t practice their faith. Some people don’t know where to start.
I think you have to find the way that is best for you.
In a speech Malcolm X gave called the, “Ballot or the Bullet” I believe he said it best.
He said, “I believe my religion is my personal business. My religious philosophy is personal between me and God just as the religious philosophy of others is between them and the God in whom they believe.”
There are no rules when it comes to spiritual goals.
Showing more gratitude, can be a spiritual goal. Give thanks for your health, family, work or business, friends, home or anything you are thankful for.
You can try meditation. Sit and focus on your breathing to clear your mind. I suggest starting at 5 minutes and increasing the time as you feel. In meditation you can focus on a mantra or a spiritual passage.
If you belong to a religious group, spend time with people from your religious or cultural community. Consider a life coach, mentor or even the head of your religious congregation, ask them for spiritual guidance.
If no group exists, you goal can create one. You can’t be the only person looking for connections.
One goals I suggest is to turn off the television and spend a few hours teaching your children about having faith. Your and that of others.
If you have the time off work, I recommend traveling to various holy sites around the world from all the different religions.
This would allow you to take a once in a life time trip and allow you to learn about various religions and cultures. Traveling is a great way to understand the diversity of your fellow human being.
I believe no matter what your spiritual goals you set, do it from a place of love, equality and non-ego.
Set yourself some positive goals. Begin by thinking positive thoughts and this will future improve your attitude. The right attitude toward people is a spiritual goal, in my opinion.
