Have you ever noticed how joyous, compassionate, calm, and composed Buddhist monks are? They radiate with palpable goodness, lack concern of status, and are nothing like you've ever encountered before. Tranquil both on the inside and outside, these people have re-sculpted their brains through daily practice and managed to calmly control anger, greed, and fear. The key to this blissful state of being: spirituality.
Spirituality is about remembering who we are, our place in the universe, and our connection to each other. Spirituality begins with self-acceptance, living with kindness and compassion, and creating more positive energy into this world. To feel that unconditional, unstoppable, and enormous love for our existence and humanity. This powerful force gives us hope, melts away borders, and could one day save the world.
☀️ Here are my top 10 benefits of being spiritual:
- Spiritual practice improves health, strengthens relationships, and increases personal growth.
