Unlike What Pop Religion Tells Us, You Don't Have to Be Young, Healthy, Beautiful and Financially Successful to Embark on a Spiritual Journey
Contrary to what images from our pop culture constantly tell us - luring us from glossy magazine covers at health food stores like Whole Foods, or from 15-second videos produced by Law of Attraction gurus on Instagram - you don't have to be young, healthy, beautiful and financially successful to embark on a meaningful spiritual journey. All you have to do is LOSE yourself in the beauty of the world around you, practice some form of silence or meditative letting-go, and allow art, music, poetry, philosophy and the glory of the natural world to serve as a mirror in which you can FINALLY see your true self. At the same time, you will find your true purpose in life by realizing that YOU - in all of your quirky uniqueness - are needed to awaken the Cosmos to its beauty and goodness through the practice of contemplative wonder and amazement. And THAT, I am convinced, is the ultimate definition of a healthy lifestyle.
